This character will become available after unlocking all other playable Story Mode characters.
 Once you have unlocked all the characters except for Ranmaru Mori and Okuni, you will get this.
 
 Ranmaru Mori Unlocked (50 points)
This character will become available by satisfying certain conditions in Survival Mode.
 Before you attempt the survival mode, there are a few preparations I recommend that you make. First, try to get your character of choice to level 50. Select a monk or shrine maid as a bodyguard and raise them to level 20, they give you items as you fight so they are extremely useful. Buy the skills Gluttony 3, Cutthroat 3, Ration 3, and Fitness 3. You also will need to customize one of your weapons. Take one of your level 3 weapons that has a bunch of stat slots and go into the shop and buy an upgrade. If you get a good stat bonus then save your game, if not then load and try again. If you happen to die, you can pay gold to start at floor 11, 21, 31, 41, or 51; whichever is your highest floor that you have reached. You need to clear a specific sequence of missions on survival mode to unlock Ranmaru Mori. On floor 1, select Ranmaru’s Request. On floor 6, select Keiji’s Request. On floor 11, select Mitsuhide’s Request. Choose whichever mission you want on floor 16. On floor 21, select Mitsuhide’s Request 2. Choose whichever mission you want on floor 26. On floor 31, select Ranmaru’s Request 2. Once you clear floor 35, you will unlock Ranmaru.
 
 Okuni Unlocked (50 points)
This character will become available by satisfying certain conditions in Sugoroku.
 You will need to win one single player game of Sugoroku. This game is basically Monopoly spliced with Mario Party. You may use any settings to unlock this. The object of the game is to collect the target amount of gold. As you travel around the board, you want to buy property and collect your 3 flags. Once you get your flags, return to your home space and level up. You are then awarded gold based upon your level and the amount of properties you own. Seeing as this is a board game, the results basically comes down to luck.
 
 Katsuie(SW2)/Joun(XL) Hired (25 points)
Hire Katsuie in SW2 and Joun Takahashi in SW2XL at the Shop and save your game.
 See “Ranmaru Mori Unlocked” for preparation tips. First you will need to reach floor 76 in survival mode, which is a task in itself.(it doesn't matter what missions you take to get here)On floor 76, choose the mission Woeful Beauty. On floor 76, you need to defeat Oichi. On floor 77, you have one minute to defeat Hideyoshi Toyotomi. On floor 78, you must defeat Ranmaru Mori and Mitsuhide Akechi in 3 minutes. You then must defeat Nobunaga Oda before he leaves the floor. On floor 79, you have to survive an onslaught of several generic officers at the same time. If you kill one, he will return in a few moments. Once you have killed the officers several times, Nagamasa Azai will show up. Defeat him and proceed to the next floor. On floor 80, you will fight Katsuie Shibata. Once you clear floor 80, Katsuie will be in the shop. To actually get the achievement, you have to hire him and save your game.
 
 Kojiro(SW2)/Yoshiteru(XL) Hired (25 points)
Hire Kojiro in SW2 and Yoshiteru Ashikaga in SW2XL at the Shop and save your game.
 See “Ranmaru Mori Unlocked” for preparation tips. First you need to reach floor 76 in survival mode, which is a task in itself(it doesn't matter what missions you take to get here). On floor 76, choose the mission Employment Opportunity. On floor 76, get 100 kills in 5 minutes. On floor 77, defeat the 3 officers in 5 minutes. On floor 78, again you will have to defeat the 3 officers in 5 minutes. On floor 79, you must defeat Kojiro Sasaki in 5 minutes. On floor 80, defeat Musashi Miyamoto in 5 minutes. You will have to fight Kojiro Sasaki again to clear the floor. He will now be in the shop to hire. To actually get the achievement, you have to hire him and save your game.

Other gameplay tips:
Buy a horse, this will be very useful as you often need to cross the maps quickly. If you are playing two player co-op, then you get more gold for finishing the missions. If you are having trouble with a mission where you need to protect all of your officers(or any mission for that matter), try raising the morale of your army. You get a boost to morale for completing the objectives you get during the mission and for every 50 kills. Seal any enemy gates you come across to prevent more enemies from spawning.
