Can't Touch This Achievement

  • Can't Touch This

    Took no damage from the final boss and cleared the stage.

    This is greatly complicated by the fact that you're not allowed to take damage. Refer to the video below.

  • This will be annoying. The boss makes no sense to me.
  • Agreed. Also, like, Super Sonic doesn't really take "damage...." We're going to be restarting a bajillion times because "oh that rock touched me and i hate rocks."
  • Yeah, final boss was a bit of a flop. The logic behind it is lacking.
  • Also, "THAT LOOKS LIKE A HOMING SHOT."
  • This achievement is not as hard as you think, here is a strategy I made. First Part: I started by going to the top and when the arm shot out I quickly got to the middle. After that I boosted through and used some quick homing attacks. When you get up close and he is about to squish you, go up to his head and you should be safe. Second Part: This gets a little more tricky. When he switches to the Classic Side, just stay in the Modern Side. You are more likely to get hit more on the Classic and it is also harder to control. Get rings while you are waiting for him to come back, you will need to dodge some misses, just switch sides quickly if you see them near you, then switch back. I stayed at the top when he got back in the middle, just dodge the missiles, and when he uses his
  • Oops it cut part of it off. This achievement is not as hard as you think, here is a strategy I made. First Part: I started by going to the top and when the arm shot out I quickly got to the middle. After that I boosted through and used some quick homing attacks. When you get up close and he is about to squish you, go up to his head and you should be safe. ...arms go down and shoot any debris that are near you then quickly charge him and do what I explained in step one. Third Part: This one gets more annoying because you will have to deal with more missiles and a lazier, the part were he slows down time doesn't really do much, just to a quick home attack if you think there are debris. When he shoots his lazier, just start switching to each area which will confuse him
  • ....making his lazier shoot odd. Do what I did in step two and dodge those missiles and get up to him. He will smash you the same way so stay above his head then hit him. Final Part: Just quickly stay up on him so that he does the fire ball attack then do your super attack and there you go, achievement unlocked. Hope this helps anyone that is having any problems with it.
  • Yeah, it's not as hard as you guys think. But it does require switching between modern and classic sonic a lot.
  • This achievement is not that hard but Sonic's friends won't SUIT UP!!!
  • I was really frustrated with this, took a bunch of tries. I tried to follow what INeedHelpQuick said, but his English was mostly gibberish so I'll write down some of my own tips. First things to know are if you want to dodge attacks or debris, don't boost, Modern Sonic can dodge easier if not boosting. Also, NEVER EVER use the partner attack (A button) while in Classic Sonic mode. This is a great way to get hit by the warping arm attack. Since if you use the partner attack, you can't switch to Modern (to dodge the arm) for around 7 seconds. Don't bother trying to attack Time Eater while in Classic mode, while it is possible, just don't. After hitting Time Eater 2 or 3 times, it will bust out a new white laser beam attack, switch to Classic mode immediately, it's easier to dod
  • (continued from above) After hitting Time Eater 2 or 3 times, it will bust out a new white laser beam attack, switch to Classic mode immediately, it's easier to dodge it, then a couple secs later, go back to Modern. Overall, I'd say stay in Modern mode about 90% of the time and Classic mode 10% of the time. Restart if you think Sonic got hit by anything, he'll bounce back or up or down or to the side if he collided against anything. Restart! The Achievement pops when the points tally appears, because of that, you won't know if you succeeded until you're stuck re-watching the ending, the credits and the bonus video all over again. Thanks Sonic Team for pissing us off. This fight sucks, the controls suck, trying to collect the rings suck, this Achievement sucks.
  • @4 That just made my day
  • Credit to Vandelay16 for this extremely helpful video guide. I just scored the achievement after following this guide. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U03R_Bx6nMc&feature=related
  • I didn't like the final boss either. Half the time I didn't know what I was looking at or what was going on. Getting this one seems like it could be a pain.
  • oh yes..I raged. -_-
  • This one is like impossible >.>
  • i got it! major props to Vandely16 from #13's comment. it was a huge help!
  • I agree with #17 but I still haven't got the achievement, video definitely helped, the only things I get hit by are the top/bottom of the level when I try and dodge the hand, or the hand itself attacking me, once the hands go green that bit is easy and dodgin the laser and missles are easy, I get 1 or twice stupidly, but I will get this one, easily to S Rank then Sonic Unleashed final boss.
  • I would like to point out that this achievement just seems to be glitched as [email protected]$# I just got this achievement myself but took damage from both the lazor ,and terrain that flies endlessly at u
  • Not to sound rude, but I got this on my first try. I didn't even knew it was an achievement. All i did was just try to avoid the Time Eater because I thought one thing will mess me up.
  • I Have To Try its One Of The 4 im Missing and it seems so complicated
  • I don't know why I still cannot get this! It's my last one and it's driving me crazy. Such a frustrating level in general.
  • Got this a few hours ago ^.^ but god dammit if i ever hear 'looks like a homing shot' again. >:(
  • Finally got the achievement, but it still says on the select stage screen "Defeat this mysterious enemy, and restore this world" how do you restore the world then. HELP! please.
  • This stage doesn't make any sense, I'm taking damage and don't know how. This achievement is not worth the frustration.
  • The problem isn't so much hitting him I find, it's running out of rings.
  • man i hate this boss, to me sonic feels just completly broken if i were to give out a award for the worst super sonic lvls it will recieve Jet's giant sh*t dripping trophy the worst time to play as super sonic when you feel as if the controls broken on a another bad note the rings are frickin impossible to see, after about 9-10 tries i just gave it the middle finger and verbal abuse and no the achievement didn't pop afterwards
  • The amount of scripted padding in this boss fight is offensive, such a lazy broken attempt at game design.
  • This is the only one I need ._. I don't even know how to fight it properly
  • Ugh... think I'll pass on this one. This boss fight is such a blemish on an otherwise damn good game.
  • This was hard to get, it took me about 2 hours or less just to get this.
  • Time to attempt this hard achievement tomorrow :L
  • Took me several tries to get this achievement. Never again am I versing the Time Eater Dx
  • Gonna be trying this one tonight, lets hope all goes well...
  • How the Hell could they have allowed a piece of shit boss like this one? This was the worst 'boss' battle of any kind I think I've ever tried to beat. I actually managed to beat him several times but all of theme were just sheer luck, out of many dozens of times I've tried to do it. None of those times did this achievement ever pop, even when watching the credits and scenery afterward. Whoever designed this, or pulled this achievement out of their orifice can kiss my Trotsky-lite ass! This achievement is called "Can't Touch This"? Well, even when I finally beat this level, Sonic didn't just get 'touched' but got violated and just turned into a mangled, wounded wreck. Too many homing missiles, lasers, and that god-damn 'mini-sun', not to mention the ringless voids and running out of r

  • Seriously the worst battle ever. I kept getting to the end and trying to quickly press LB and RB...nope. It just wanted me to hold them down. GRRRRR. Wasted about 2 hours of my life.
  • Sooooooo annoying!! This game was great, but they ruined it with this final boss...they couldve done better!!
  • Just a heads up for those struggling with this achievement. You CAN get hit by debris, you just can't get hit by the boss' actual attacks. (Homing/Big lasers) I just got the achievement and smacked into debris a couple times. Hope this helps.
  • Trying to get this achievement was absolute HELL! But it was worth it!
