|From stage 1, make it to the stage 3 bosses in Survival Mode with the Japanese ROM.||(24)|
First, you must beat the game once to unlock the Japanese ROM. Then, you must pick Survival Mode while on that ROM. You can play by yourself or with others. Survival Mode is having 1 life and no continues. The area you must get to is Moe's Tavern on Stage 3. The trench coat men are the bosses the achievement is referring to. You do not have to defeat them, just reach them. Remember that the game has an + move that is a stronger attack. As Lisa, you might have the easiest time of all characters. She is not only quick but has good reach.
|Easier Than Arm Wrestling||10|
|Defeat the Wrestler without any player dying.||(8)|
This is actually very easy. This is the Stage 1 boss. Place it on Easy on Japan ROM. Go through the level and make sure to collect the food when you can. This game mode lets you have more than 100% life (the Japan ROM). Once you get to the boss, just go up and down on the screen from top to bottom. As you are passing by the enemy press and at the same time. You should be able to beat the enemy very easily this way and might not even get hit once.
|Falling For Smithers||10|
|Playing from stage 1, fall through the deck after Smithers.||(1)|
This is obtained in Stage 2. After defeating the giant balloon boss, you will fall through with Smithers and it will unlock. You cannot get this achievement if you start from Stage 2 (as in you play online in someone's game and start from 2).
|It Tastes Like Burning||10|
|Hurt Smithers with one of his own bombs.||(1)|
This is obtained in Stage 8. You fight Smithers at the start. He drops bombs from his coat. The black bombs you cannot pick up and explode very quickly. There will be blue bombs that do not explode. You can pick them up and throw them at him to get the achievement. There are several chances to get this achievement, as he will keep dropping them until defeated.
|Play in a 4-player match with three other people.||(6)|
This can be obtained in a local game with 4 controllers or online with 3 other people. If you have 4 controllers, press on all of them in a game and the achievement will unlock. You do not have to actually beat any levels. If you do not have 4 controllers, you will have to play this online with 3 others. You can be host or join someone.
|Playing from stage 1, get Bongo to appear in 4 different levels.||(3)|
You must start the game from Stage 1. Bongo is a character that looks like a rabbit (a guy in a costume). As you play through the game, you will see trees that can be hit. They will give you life and once the tree is done dropping fruit, Bongo will pop out of the tree with a sign to tell you there is no more.
Stage 2 - Krustyland Tree: After defeating the tea cup enemies, you'll see this to the right (in front of the cages).
Stage 5 - Springfield Butte Tree: You'll see a tree early on in the level after seeing the ape enemy that sort of resembles Homer. It has a bees nest on it. Hit the tree and try to avoid the bees. Once they fly away (or hurt you), then hit the tree more.
Stage 7 - Channel 6 Tree: When you get to the area with the ninja enemies, you will see the pink tree. After Bongo appears, you will get the achievement. There is another tree following just in case you missed the first. Only one of them has to be hit.
|Battling Seizure Robots||10|
|Playing from stage 1, defeat the battling robot.||(1)|
On Stage 7: Channel 6, you will fight a robot while playing the level. It's located at what looks like mars (on some type of planet). If you are playing on the harder difficulty you will have to face two of them. There is a chance that it will not unlock after defeating the robot(s). This is likely due to the game switching game modes while you are playing. Example: You are playing individual quarter mode and halfway through, you have players join. Now the game in a way, switches modes and it does not count as you "starting from stage 1".
|While performing a Team Attack, damage 25 enemies.||(6)|
To perform a Team Attack, you must have 2 players. Have the two players stand next to each other and they will pair up. One player will control the team, but both players will get the damage/hit on the enemies. It is accumulative and can be obtained fairly quickly within a level.
|Best Score Ever||25|
|Earn 250 points (US) or 25,000 points (Japan) in a game.||(14)|
This will be obtained while going for everything else. For the (US) version, each defeated enemy is 1 point. If you start from stage 1 then you should get this achievement in Stage 4: Moe's Tavern when the band starts playing if playing on Expert difficulty. If playing on easier difficulties then you will get it eventually. It is said that (Japan) is quicker to get the points, but you have to beat the game on (US) version to even play (Japan).
|Release The Hounds||25|
|Complete the game in 30 minutes or less.||(40)|
This would be best done on the easiest settings on freeplay mode. There will be far less enemies to defeat. The less you die the more time you save. To see how you are doing on time, press and go to Help & Options. Scroll down to Settings and go to Timer. Press so that is says "Show". Press to confirm and you should now have a timer on the bottom of the screen. The timer stops while the game is paused or during a cut-scene. It does not stop while waiting for certain events to happen, which could cost you the time that you needed. Though you can tackle this alone, it might be easier to play with others.
|Like Taking Candy From a Baby||25|
|Complete the game four times, once with each character.||(14)|
Beat the game in any mode with all 4 characters. You must play as Homer, Bart, Marge, and Lisa. This has to be done from the first to last stage. It can be done alone or with other players (online or co-op).
|Complete the game on Expert difficulty in individual Quarters mode.||(22)|
Expert Difficulty is the hardest difficulty. In Quarters mode, you are limited on continues. For this mode you will have 10 continues with 3 lives each continue. This gives you 30 lives. After the Game Over screen, pressing will allow you to continue on but the progress towards the achievement will no longer count. You must do it within the given continues. An easy way to accomplish this achievement is multiplayer. As long as you aren't the one losing all continues, you will get the achievement. Have everyone else do most of the work. If the team is good enough, you can all get the achievement if you are about even with deaths.
