Jet Set Radio HD Achievements


Finish the game without anyone latching onto you with your first attempt

The other real pain in the rear achievement in this game. In order to get this, no one can jump and grab onto you on your first run through the story. If they do, you'll have to start a new game (however, this can be done on the same save, you just have to select "New Game" to try again. However, this is a little easier then it sounds. If someone does manage to jump onto you, just quit to the dashboard through the guide. Don't exist through the in game menus or it still counts. Exiting through the guide to the dashboard however will not count and allow you to get grabbed without penalty, other then having to restart the mission.

Other Tips and Methods:

First choose a character who can carry lots of cans like Tab (30).
As soon as you start a stage get full of sprays. You should concentrate on bigger graffitis first, the FASTEST way of painting those is to tap  and do the first movement (UP), tap again  to cancel it and repeat ( and UP). That way you avoid those long combos you have to make so it's easier to avoid any danger of being latched on.

Also another tip is to paint the graffitis on the floor first since those who can latch onto you can't climb buildings/structures.


The police and the Golden Rhinos will try to jump and hold on to you. If you see that you have someone grab onto you and as you move you've got people dragging behind you, you've been grabbed.

Rival skaters will never jump and grab you. As well, being hit by gun fire or whips or missiles or being kicked in the skull is also OK for the achievement. Not 100% sure about being set on fire by the guy in Explosion. It kind of looks like he grabs you to do it.

What the fuck!? Really? Plus what the hell does this first attempt shit mean?

Once you get grabbed you gotta delete your data as your first attempt will be forever gone???? I don't think they would do that....but I mean wtf?

This games achievement list is ridiculous.

I'm just ranting on how impossible the achievement "can" be not "is" lol.

I can't wait to find out.

It could be just referring to a game session. Finish it without using restart?

People sure are quick to complain, even before they have a chance to understand what they're complaining about.

This is very poorly worded, but I think I understand what it means. From playing the DC version I can tell you that this achievement is going to be almost impossible - you're pretty much certain to get caught at some point.

@5 So what? That's the joy in reading lists on x360a.

@6 That's what I'm saying. I always got in this damn game caught.

If the game gives multiple save files then it's not really a problem. Just keep one "main save and one to attempt this achievement with. If you screw up you can just delete it and start again.

If I'm understanding this correctly, it's not all that hard. It saves after every level, and whenever i get latched onto, i just reset the xbox straight away and start the level again and continue through the game, and I'm near the end of the game now, I'll let you guys know if that gets the achievement.

Hopefully the "first attempt" part is not implying that you can't fail a level once, cause I've done that a few times. Mainly the Yo-Yo race, he can kiss my ass.

Just got it, it was on my first playthrough of the game though, that's probably what first attempt means. This is actually a pretty easy achievement, considering it only counts when they grab you, so don't reset everytime you get knocked over! The achievements that involve getting Jet rating on every level are gonna be a BEAST though.

Thanks for the heads up Jim, I was hoping this was the case because that is the method that I have been using as well. Good to know.

Beat the game once where anytime I got grabbed I would 'Return to Garage', didn't pop. Continued save until 2nd completion, this time I exited to dashboard anytime I got nabbed, didn't pop that time either. Not sure what to do now.

Could you delete the game and reinstall it?

I really despise this sort of achievement.

Got this one on my first try. Had to exit to dashboard a lot of time.

Finally got this on my 3th play through. On the 3rd time, i started a new save file, and also exited to dashboard any time i failed a 'Challenger has appeared'.

This was really easy. I was scared because of what people were saying. All you do is hit some red tags until the grab guys go away and an agent comes out, since they cant grab you your only goes is not to die

Very easy. Just do as the others say (dashboard when caught). I only had to dashboard 2 or 3 times, all of which were during chapter 3.

Not as difficult as it sounds, like everyone is saying, if anyone grabs you just exit to the dashboard and reload. I was bumped by onishima, burnt, shot etc without dashboarding and I got it first try.

I can now relax and enjoy the game haha, I hate when achivements like this interfere with my enjoyment of a game...
