Padlocked/Fangs Out Time Requirements

In order to get these achievements you must kill each boss within a certain amount of time. The time required varies per boss. The easiest way I have found to do these achievements is to set the difficulty to Penguin (easiest) giving you 9 lives. Go into each boss fight with a full 8 strikes and a few bombs. Unload everything you have and don't worry about dying, because respawning gives you 3 bombs and 2 strikes.

Below is a list of the times needed to attain.


Level 1
Boss - Plane
"S" Ranking
0:00 - 0:13
"A" Ranking
0:14 - 0:25

Level 2
Boss - Tank
"S" Ranking
0:00 - 0:26
"A" Ranking
0:27 - 0:35

Level 3
Boss - Battleship
"S" Ranking
0:00 - 1:11
"A" Ranking
1:12 - 1:20

Level 4
Boss - Tank (revisited)
"S" Ranking
0:00 - 1:02
"A" Ranking
1:03 - 1:16

Level 5
Boss - Plane (revisited)
"S" Ranking
0:00 - 1:05
"A" Ranking
1:06 - ???


First time posting. Thanks for this great site and community at x360a.

I was wondering if it is best to go for the main section of each boss, or take them out piece by piece? Not sure which is quicker

It is easiest to pick the Mosquito (strongest firepower) and focus damage on the middle/main parts of the boss to get fast kills. Using 3-4 bombs will typically take out alot of the smaller guns on the plane bosses. For the tank bosses, save bombs until you get the first explosion on the main part.

13 seconds!?!?! You're kidding me!

On another note: I'm now pissed off as I managed to reach the level 5 boss and died. Therefore not getting anything for completing the game.

Thanks for the info however, at least it gives us an idea of what we're shooting for. Those are some pretty nutty times though.

1st boss

The 13 seconds for the first boss are quite easy:

1. Pick up mosquito
2. Get laser level 2
3. Have a full, our almost full health bar.
4. Have all missiles.

As soon as the plane appears position yourself between the main turret and the tail, and tap (A) as fast as you can (lasers shoot once per tap, unlike the other weapons).

When the boss starts to take hits (parts flashing white) tap (A) and (B) until your out of missiles.

Then go to the bottom of the screen and keep tapping (A) and dodging enemy fire. The boss should go down in no time.

The trick here is to tap as fast as you can..

Personal record: 10 seconds.

I'll try to post a video soon.

That video definitly helped just for where you should be starting off to avoid the first and 2nd set of attacks by the bosses. You saved me a playthrough, which isn't a lot of time, but it's definitly enough to save me time in my day.
