 All Hail, Tekken Incarnate! (10 points)
You earned everything.
 

This achievement is simply for getting the other 49 achievements in the game. This will always be the last achievement you will get in the game.

 
 Behold the Tekken Lord! (45 points)
You became Tekken Lord in Offline Mode.
 

To become a Tekken Lord you have to fight ghosts, which to the game, means any CPU in Arcade or Ghost Battle. The Tekken Lord title is the fourth from last title you can achieve (The highest being "True Tekken God"). Along the way you will also get the Vanquisher title which means you are halfway done on your way to the Tekken Lord title.

Personally, It took me 377 W / 79 L to become a Tekken Lord.

 Preeminent Partner (15 points)
You cleared an Offline Mode arcade battle with a partner.
 

For this achievement you need to complete Arcade Mode with a tag team. After you beat Stage 9 the achievement will pop.

 
 Solo Warrior (15 points)
You cleared an Offline Mode arcade battle solo.
 

For this achievement you have beat Arcade Mode while using the solo option. While fighting solo there will be tag teams thrown at you to mix things up.

 
 Tenacious Fighter (15 points)
You won 3 team battles in Offline Mode.
 

In Team Battle Mode teams of up to 8 each fight against each other. Simply pick one person to be on your side and one to also be on the CPU side. Win three matches. This is also easily done with a second controller.

 
 Super-Speed Fists (15 points)
You cleared Offline Mode Time Attack within 20 minutes.
 

For this achievement you need to clear Time Attack in under 20 minutes.  Angel is your best bet because of her lazer. To perform it hold  +  and it will shoot out of the jewel on her forehead (Or you can just map LP+RP to your  button for a one button lazer). I personally did it in under 10 minutes with the help of Angel.

My method with Angel: She's basically there to make space. With your other character do a small combo to knock the CPU back and then tag in Angel. Hit them with a lazer and back up. When they get back up off the ground they are likely to crouch for a second or two before getting back into standing position and trying to rush you again (only to get hit with a lazer again). If there is enough space you can shoot the lazer and they'll duck under to try to rush you but you'll have enough time to do a second one that will hit them.

Some characters such as Xiaoyu, Wang, and Ganryu crouch a little when they walk making Angel's lazer just barely miss them if they are a certain distance from you. Try comboing these characters with your other character to make them (hopefully) switch out with another character that doesn't do this so you can switch back to Angel.

Mei Ninja suggests using Jun and Asuka and using + ,,, to beat the CPU quickly if Angel doesn't work out for you.

 
 Proof of Your Existence (30 points)
You won 10 consecutive battles in Survival in Offline Mode.
 

For this achievement you must win 10 battles in a row in Survival Mode. Once again Angel is the way to go, but if you don't use Jun and Asuka instead. The achievement will not pop until you finally lose your streak in Survival Mode, so lose on your 11th match if you so wish.

 
 Lead Coach (20 points)
You dealt a total of 1000 damage in Practice in Offline Mode.
 

Easy. Just go into Practice Mode and wail on the CPU dummy until it pops.

 
 Touch-Up Artist (15 points)
You customized a character.
 

To customize a character, go to "Customize" from the main menu and choose a character. Once you have chosen a character, buy something for them and equip it. Try to back out and you will be greeted to a blue box hovering over your character. This serves as to take a screenshot of your character for the costume select when using Arcade, Versus, etc. Take the snapshot, select yes to keep it and the achievement will pop.

 
 Dance to Your Own Beat (15 points)
You changed the background music using TEKKEN TUNES.
 

Select Tekken Tunes from the main menu and you will be greeted by pictures of stages and other things. Press on whatever you want and just scroll down to whatever you want to change that piece of music to as long as it is not the default. Press  again to change the music and then back out of Tekken Tunes. The achievement will pop once you are on the main menu. Change the music back to default if you want.

 
 Movie Buff (30 points)
You unlocked 40 characters' ending movies.
 

You have two options here. There are 59 characters in the game and 58 of them have movies (Why Tiger Jackson doesn't have a movie is a mystery). You can either play through Arcade Mode 40 times with different characters or you can do Ghost Battle which will also help you towards your Tekken Lord achievement.

While in Ghost Battle you will sometimes find the next opponents in a gold bar. A gold bar guarantees customization rewards should you beat these teams. The first time you beat whatever pair was in gold you will also get a random ending movie that you didn't have before. You can actually get this achievement while doing Ghost Battle mode while going for your Tekken Lord title.

 
 Combot, On Standby! (15 points)
You cleared Stage 1 in Fight Lab.
 

See "Combot, Return to Base!"

 
 Combot, Move Out! (15 points)
You cleared Stage 2 in Fight Lab.
 

See "Combot, Return to Base!"

 
 Combot, Engage! (15 points)
You cleared Stage 3 in Fight Lab.
 

See "Combot, Return to Base!"

 
 Combot, Annihilate! (15 points)
You cleared Stage 4 in Fight Lab.
 

See "Combot, Return to Base!"

 
 Combot, Return to Base! (30 points)
You cleared Stage 5 in Fight Lab.
 

Fight Lab is a sort of tutorial or intro if you will intro the mechanics of Tekken. You take control of Combot and learn various things about the controls and moves of the Tekken universe wrapped around an amusing story. There are five stages to Fight Lab and each of them has three chapters: An introduction into what you are about to do, a phase of doing it, and then a boss battle. While doing these you earn points to upgrade Combot for the Super Combot DX Complete achievement. You also gain fight money along the way which helps towards theBazillionaire achievement.

The various achievements relating to Fight Lab will pop up at the end of their respective chapters.

 
 Super Combot DX Complete (45 points)
You unlocked all the content in Fight Lab.
 

The "content" that is referred to by the achievement is actually all the moves you can purchase for Combot using the points you gain in Fight Lab. From the Fight Lab menu select "Combot Tuning" and you should see eight bars with percentages on them. When you unlock a move for Combot the moves end up here waiting to be purchased with your points. Once each of them is at 100% the achievement will pop. It will however take around 3 million in points to make this happen. If you are good at the Stage 5 boss you can get 100,000 points every two tries.

The percentage bars that say "Stage #" at the bottom of the eight bars you need to fill for the achievement have no bearing on this achievement so ignore them if you want.

DarkSephiroth has a rather interesting way of gathering points and money here.

 
 PERFECT Player (20 points)
You won a PERFECT battle.
 

Get a perfect, which means winning a battle with no health lost whatsoever. Up against the CPU this may be a problem but still doable with some cheap tactics. However it is most easily done with a second controller or online with someone helping you.

 
 GREAT Gladiator (30 points)
You won a GREAT battle.
 

To win a great battle you must have your health below 5% and still beat your opponent. You might get this out of sheer luck while against the CPU but a second controller or help online is a surefire way to get this achievement. In Versus use for this so you can get your health down to as low as possible without losing before beating your opponent.

 
 Secret Weapon (15 points)
You used an item move.
 

To use an item move you must customize a character with one first. So go to Customize and look for "Upper Body (Other)" or "Lower Body (Other)" things for your character that have a command list icon on them like they would on a character's command list. Equip it and use it's command in battle after you have selected your customized character by pressing  on the character select screen. Once it hits the opponent the achievement will pop up.

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Who You Gonna Call? (20 points)
You defeated 30 ghosts.
 

Contrary to what you might think, this does not have to be done in Ghost Battle at all. The game counts all CPUs as ghosts so just defeat 30 CPU opponents whether they be in Arcade Mode, Time Attack, Survival, or Ghost Battle itself.

 
 Bazillionaire (30 points)
You earned over 10,000,000G total.
 

While this number may seem intimidating the game throws fight money at you any chance it gets. You'll even get 2,000,000 in three modes once you do them for the first time. The best place to grind money however is the Stage 5 boss in Fight Lab. Do good enough and you get 200,000+ every time you beat the stage.

 
 Fortunate Fighter (30 points)
You earned 3 Lucky Boxes.
 

Anytime you play against the CPU (as well as online) you have a chance to get Lucky Boxes after the match. They appear randomly and give you various stuff, but mostly money. Playing in Ghost Battle with net you tons of these.

According to various reports you need to be online to get this achievement. You also need to get them in one sitting so just keep fighting in online battles until the achievement unlocks.

 
 Escape Artist (15 points)
You successfully completed 10 throw escapes.
 

The easiest way to do this is in Versus Mode with a second controller. On your second controller press  + and as soon as the grab is initiated press  +  on your controller. If successful the grab is canceled and both players step away from each other. Continue until the achievement is unlocked.

According to Jin Akuma90, fulfilling the requirement for Avoid Flying Heads ten times is another way to get this achievement. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Dish Best Served Cold (15 points)
You pulled off 3 reversals.
 

I used King for this since he does a roll with the opponent once he has reversed a move. It is also best to go into Practice Mode to do this as well. So pick King and a random person and press start to open up the training menu. Press Mode Select and go to the bottom and press "VS CPU TRAINING" so that the computer will start to attack you.

As the computer is attacking you keep pressing  (or  if you are on the right side of the screen) +  + until King reverses his opponent. Repeat two more times.

Alternately, you can select Asuka and use  +  +  or  +  +  and she will go into a defensive stance. When the CPU hits her she will more than likely reverse it (Thanks to SUBJECT BK201 for the tip).

 
 Stick It to 'Em (15 points)
You pulled off 10 homing attacks.
 

A homing attack is an attack that will hit no matter what if your opponent tries to sidestep around you, if they are close enough they will get hit. You can actually get this achievement in Fight Lab in the tutorial that teaches you about homing attacks. An example of a homing attack would be  +  for a default Combot. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Below the Belt (15 points)
You pulled off 3 low parries.
 

A low parry is a move that counters low attacks by pushing them aside when they make contact. This is best done in Versus Mode with a second controller. With your second controller preform a low kick ( + ) close to the first player. As this is making contact the first player needs to press down/forward to brush it aside. Repeat until the achievement is unlocked. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Oodles of Ukemi (15 points)
You pulled off 3 ukemi.
 

To do a ukemi you simply have to press and hold  or  immediately after hitting the ground from a launcher to either roll towards or away from your opponent. Do this three times and the achievement is yours. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Insane Juggler (30 points)
You dealt more than 62 damage in a midair combo.
 

The Stage 5 boss of Fight Lab has various times where you must bound your opponent to proceed. With your two Combots pull off a bound followed by various hits from the both of you and it will pop once you have done 62 or more damage (Thanks to icurnvss for the tip). 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Flying Butt-Kicker (15 points)
You pulled off 3 10 hit combos.
 

The easiest person I found to do this with is Yoshimitsu. His command 153 (,,,,,,,,) is very easy to remember and if you go into training and watch it first it's really easy to do once you have the timing of the button presses down. People also like to use his command 150 (,,,,,,,,) to get this done. Yet another is Baek's command 83 (,,,,,,,,). 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 The Original Bouncer (15 points)
You pulled off 10 bound combos.
 

A bound combo is a combo that involves you doing a midair combo to your opponent.

An example of a bound would be the default Combot's simple bound combo. Start off with a launcher ( + ) followed by  (or  depending on what side you are on) +  followed by some other attacks to make it an actual combo (Like simply hitting  to kick the opponent after the bound). Do this ten times.

Different characters have different ways to do launchers and bounds so experiment and see what works for you.

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Master of the Tag Combo (20 points)
You pulled off 10 Tag Combos.
 

To do a Tag Combo you need to hit your opponent with a launcher followed by hitting the tag button so that your partner will come out and take your place on the field. Follow up with some hits from the person coming in and it will be counted as a Tag Combo. Repeat ten times. This can also be done it Fight Lab at the part where you are taught about Tag Combos. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Master of the Tag Assault (20 points)
You pulled off 10 Tag Assaults.
 

To do a Tag Assault you need to press the tag button right before hitting the opponent with a bound attack. This will cause your partner to come to your side for a brief period with a white outline around them. During this period the both of you can attack the opponent until your partner goes back. Repeat this ten times for this to unlock.

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Master of the Direct Tag Assault (20 points)
You pulled off 3 Direct Tag Assaults.
 

A Direct Tag Assault is a combo that involves you and your partner being on screen together to deal greater damage after a midair attack is done to the opponent. To initiate this, press  +  together with . Do this three times. You might also get this in Fight Lab. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice.

 
 Master of the Tag Throw (15 points)
You pulled off 10 Tag Throws.
 

A Tag Throw is a tag where you and your partner attack one opponent while simultaneously switching out at the same time. To perform a Tag Throw push  +  and your character will grab your opponent while your second character will damage them. Do this ten times and it will unlock. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 True Friendship (15 points)
You pulled off 3 Tag Crashes.
 

A Tag Crash is a move that can only been done if:

  • Your partner is in rage mode
  • Your current character is down on the ground or can do a ukemi

If these conditions are met then you can press  +  to do a Tag Crash. Repeat this three times. Beware though, once a Tag Crash has been done the character you saved will have all their available red health drained.NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 

 
 The Best of Friends (30 points)
You pulled off 3 partner-specific Tag Throws.
 

For this achievement you need to do a character specific Tag Throw. For this I picked Devil Jin and Kazuya. Their special Tag Throw are the Mishima headbutts. You'll know you've did it right when after your first character headbutts the opponent your second will then grab the opponent and then headbutt them again.

The Tag Throw will go like this:  +  + , (Or  +  + , depending on what side you are on). If you were successful do it two more times.

Another Tag Throw is with Baek and Hwoarang. Press  + , and both of them will come on screen and do a flurry of kicks to their opponent (Thanks to demonocracy for the tip). 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Impressive Moves (30 points)
You pulled off a GREAT combo.
 

A GREAT combo seems to be a damage heavy combo done between special tag teams. So far the easiest seems to be for Marshall Law/Paul for most people. The input for that is:

 + , quickly tap , then quickly tap  and Paul will come rushing out very quickly with blue sparkles around him. With Paul press , and Law will automatically switch places with Paul with a yellow aura on his hands while the opponent is mid-air. You have to time it right, but press  and it should zoom in on Law from his back punching your opponent followed by the announcer yelling out "GREAT!" plus your achievement poping up. NOTE:This can be done in Practice Mode.

Here is a video of this happening (Around 8 seconds):

 
 Fickle Friend (30 points)
You switched places with your partner 765 times.
 

This will come to you naturally over the course of the game while getting other achievements. To Tag is either  or   by default. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Watch Your Step! (15 points)
You broke a floor.
 

To break a floor you first need to be on a stage with a breakable floor (Like Hall of Judgement), then you need to damage it enough by bounding your opponent into it and comboing them until it breaks. If you are playing through Fight Lab then this achievement is impossible to miss as you cannot continue further through it without doing this achievement. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Renovation Time (15 points)
You broke a wall.
 

To break a wall you first need to be on a stage with a breakable wall (Like Moonlit Wilderness), then you must use a heavy attack such as  +  while your opponent is in front of a wall and it will crumble once this happens. If you are playing through Fight Lab then this achievement is impossible to miss as you cannot continue further without doing this achievement. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Geronimooo! (15 points)
You broke a balcony.
 

To break a balcony you first need to be on a stage with a balcony (Like Dusk after the Rain), then you must use a heavy attack such as  +  when your opponent is next to it near the railing. Once you hit them they will come flying down and your partner will be there to greet them to finish whatever combo you may have been doing. If you are playing through Fight Lab then this achievement is impossible to miss as you cannot continue further without doing this achievement. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Avoid Flying Heads (15 points)
You escaped from Alisa's Spam Bomb move.
 

I found this pretty impossible for myself to do in Versus so head to Practice Mode instead. Pick solo and choose whoever you want. For the CPU pick solo also but pick Alisa. As soon as it loads up press start to bring up the practice menu.

At the top should be "Mode Select" and it should say "Freestyle". Press it and go down one to change it to "Defensive Training". Now click on "CPU Setting 1" and hit "Record". You will now be in control of Alisa! Now press  and it will start to record. With Alisa press Up/Forward and  + at the same time to make her hand her head over to you and let it explode and watch yourself get up.

After that press the start button and "CPU Setting 1" should have three blue bars on it. Press right twice to extend it to five. Press start to go back to training. Press  +  to make her start taking off her head and handing it to you. As she hands you her head you need to press  +  to hand it back to her. Do not press start while doing this or you will have to record again. The computer will keep doing this same attack until you press the start button.

Keep going until you have successfully put her head back on her body and then the achievement will pop.

Here is a video of this exact same thing, except they made her do the attack from her command menu:

 
 Doused But Not Out (15 points)
Your upper body got wet in the Fallen Garden stage.
 

For this achievement you basically just have to get beat up a little by Unknown to land in the purple water and then roll around in it a bit. If you did not get this in the Unknown fight then start up Versus Mode and choose the Fallen Garden stage. Have your second controller launch you and then hit the ground. Once you do start rolling around in the water until the achievement unlocks. 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Bad Date (15 points)
You dropped a damsel into the pool in the Eternal Paradise stage.
 

To get this go to the Eternal Paradise stage and make your way to the side of the stage where the ladies are by the pool. Brush up against them to have them fall in the pool. Alternatively, hit an opponent into one of them to make them fall in (Thanks to cheevo360 for the tip). 

NOTE: This can be done in Practice Mode.

 
 Be Still My Iron Heart (15 points)
You won a ranked match in Online Mode.
 

See "Tekken Black Belt"

 
 Tug at My Iron Heart Strings (15 points)
You won a player match in Online Mode.
 

Win an online player match and this achievement will pop. You can join a lobby, do quick matches, or create your own private session with someone else to get the achievement that way.

 
 Iron Heartache (15 points)
You fought 3 times in Online Mode.
 

Simply fight three times online be it ranked, player, or private and the achievement will pop up after your third online match has finished.

 
 Tekken Black Belt (15 points)
You earned 1st dan in Online Mode.
 

To get to 1st dan in online mode you must be doing ranked matches. If you get to 1st dan from battle points, meaning you lost a couple of times along the way or you lost on your promotion match you will still have the title of 1st dan but not the achievement itself. For the achievement to unlock if you are 1st dan or beyond requires you to simply win a match.

Another thing to note is that in your ranked match options you typically only want to face people three ranks above or below you. When you click on Ranked Match change your rank limits to either a yellow or green 3 to be safe.

Personally, I had 9 W / 11 L when I got to 1st dan in online mode.

 
 Enter the Vanquisher! (30 points)
You earned Vanquisher in Offline Mode.
 

See "Behold the Tekken Lord!"
