|Chapter 9 - Destroy 10 Kaos Bust Statues|
While exploring Kaos' castle, you'll find busts of Kaos mixed in the destructible background objects. Destroy ten of them before the end of the stage to earn this achievement. They're pretty easy to spot, so this shouldn't be too tough.
|Chapter 10 - Shoot down 10 mines|

|Chapter 16 - Complete the chapter without taking damage from fire traps|
