Back In Time...

This trophy is tory-related, therefore it cannot be missed
Beat the general story mode. This'll come after Chapter 17: Raiden is complete
A For Effort
Complete Tutorial Mode
Simple enough. Just head to the Training section of the Main Menu, and select Tutorial. There is a grand total of 15 challenges to beat.
Perform a Fatality!
Finish him! The trademark of the MK franchise, now conveniently palm-sized! Check the '-Alities' section of the guide for fatality inputs.
Using the touchscreen to perform a fatality will also net you Touch and Go
Perform a 10-hit combo with any fighter
Fortunately, like the console version, you can just use Sonya's X-Ray in Practice.
You can also head into Practice
mode as Baraka. In practice, set the Super Meter to 'Full'. Punch your opponent once or twice, then attack with enhanced Chop-Chop Blades (back, back,
+[R]). Done correctly, it will yield in a 10 or 11 hit combo and the trophy.
You can also get this in the Bonus Tower in the Juggle challenges. You either need 10 or 30 hits to win, so you can get this in due time.
Perform every fighter's forward and backwards throws
To perform a throw, press the [L] button in touching vicinity of you opponent. To do a backwards throw, hold Back as you throw. Just do both types of throws for all 32 characters and you get a trophy.
Where's The Arcade?
Complete Arcade Ladder with Any Fighter
See Arcade Champion
Complete Arcade Ladder with All Fighters
There are 32 kharacters to beat Arcade Ladder with, but you can opt for only doing it 16 times using Tag Ladder. If you're at the point in which you just want to get this over with, just change the match settings to one round, 30 seconds, on the easiest setting. Not much else to say, really.
Finish What You Start!
Perform a Fatality with all playable fighters
About as simple as it sounds. Just go into a match like a Versus or an easiest Arcade Ladder, and after winning, use a Fatality with every kharacter. Check out the -Alities Section for kodes.
Stage fatalities count towards this.
Touch and Go
Perform 1 "-ality" using the Playstation VITA touchscreen
When inputting fatalities, you don't need to use the buttons. you can just swipe the screen in the designated directions, no buttons! Just pick an -ality from the -Alities section and use the screen to swipe in the directions instead of the keys, and boom, trophy.
Complete Arcade Ladder on max difficulty without using a continue
There's a cheap way and a legit way for this.
Practice, practice, practice. Find a kharacter that suit how you play well, then train using them to the best of your abilities.
Go in Tag Ladder, select Sheeva and Scorpion, set round time to 30 seconds with one round. Until Goro/Kintaro, spam Sheeva's Down-Up slam move over and over. When you reach the next boss, mix Scorpion's spear with his teleport. Try spearing them, heading into a kombo, teleport to throw them off, them spear right away. It's not a pass to win, but it's a start.
Win A Ranked Online Match without jumping
This will either be easy or hard, depending if you're one of those "jump over everything!" people or a ground-hog. Either way, there isn't much to say, just don't press
the whole game.
What Does This Button Do?
Complete Arcade Ladder without blocking (allowed to continue)
Not as hard as you may think. Just go on 'Beginner', and stick to hard-hitting attacks. The AI isn't too punchy on 'Beginner', so this should come rather easily.
Also, if you do accidentally press [R], as long as it doesn't actually block an attack, you should be fine.
Win a Versus Match
Simple really, you shouldn't need help on this. If you have two Vitas, then this should be really easy.
Win Arcade Tag Ladder with a robot Sektor and Cyrax
Not really much I can say here. Just pick a Tag Team of Cyrax and Sektor and go show the world what you're made of.
Win 10 Ranked Online Matches in a row
10 sounds like it's not that many matches, but the truth is it's quite a lot, more so because it can't be boosted. Keep training with a kharacter that suits your style of play, and hope you win.
Complete 100 Versus Matches
Just complete 100 Versus matches, win or lose.
Win 100 total Versus Matches
Now this is going to take time. Just try your hardest and hope for the best.
If you have two Vitas, then you can easily just Ad Hoc play this out.
Get a Flawless Victory in a Versus Match
You may or may not have trouble with this depending on skill. If you have two Vitas, then this should be a snap. If not, just use a lot of evasive moves and dodging to cinch this.

The Krypt Keeper
Unlock 100% of the Krypt
First, know that koins are rewarded throughout the game for high kombos, victories, flawless victories, -alities, kompleting challenges, and overall just plain playing. Next, you can always enter the Krypt through the 'Extras' portion of the main menu.
There are 4 areas to the Krypt:
Deadlands (121 tombs) = 119,910 koins
Bloodmarsh (83 tombs) = 81,240 koins
Meadow of Despair (55 tombs) = 56,260 koins
Hollow of Infestation (40 tombs) = 39,480 koins
Overall, you need a bit less than 300,000 kurrency to buy all the things. You should get over 300,000 throughout your escapade, but don't go skipping any challenges and wasting precious koins.
There Will Be Blood!
Spill 10000 pints of blood
Blood is the lifeblood of the MK games, and the reason this game is where it is now pretty much. When you punch someone, there will be blood. This will come naturally while going for the plat. You need 10,000 pints spilled per kharacter to master them anyway, so...
License to Kill
Complete Fatality Trainer
Simple enough. Head into Practice
mode, and select Fatality Trainer
. Choose any kharacter and perform their fatality for the trophy. The timer doesn't affect the trophy.
Note: This won't earn you Fatality

Unlock Kenshi, Skarlet, and Rain Alternate Costumes
You unlock all of this crowd's alternates by beating challenge 150 on the bonus tower, which isn't as hard as you'd think.
Throws Are For Champs
Perform 8 throws in an Online Ranked Match
Simple enough. I suggest using a kharacter like Cyrax or Kabal, maybe Sub-Zero, so you can stop the opponent, leaving them open for a grab. As long as you perform a total of 8 throws throughout the match, the trophy is yours. You don't need all 8 in one round though, so mix up the mayhem.

Luck Be A Lady
Get all MK Dragons in Test Your Luck
This is actually all luck-based. Basically, in Test Your Luck, if all three wheels end up as an MK Dragon, boom trophy. It's all luck based though, so all you can do is keep trying until ka-ching.
Successfully land every playable fighter's X-Ray
To perform an X-Ray move, fill your super meter, then you either press [L]+[R], or tap the 'X' icon to perform it. Now each kharacter's X-ray has certain requirements, such as being a counter or in the air, but most are standard attacks. Just successfully perform all 32 to win.
Complete all 150 bonus tower missions
150 challenges, half that of the regular. Simple right? Wrong. Some of these challenges can get really hard. Also, while they might get very difficult, try your best not to skip, as you'll have to COMPLETE all the challenges to pop the trophy. To make this simple I'll include a walkthrough for I few I know you'll need help on, but other than that if you need help with any challenge I'll add a walkthrough to the guide.
#39: Figure It Out
Tap Sektor's head repeatedly, then wipe off the flames.
#130: Hit This!
Probably the hardest challenge, just usethe spin move (Down-Forward-
) to knock him up in the air, then use some hits while he's airborne. Just keep at it.
#146: You Have To Be Kidding Me
Before I go into details, know Shao Kahn's helmet is cracked, meaning you can tap him on the head and stun him. Stun him, then use Gunfire (Back-Forward-
), then rinse and repeat for all 5.
#149: This is Hell
The easiest tactic is to jump back, use the (Back-Forward-
) move in mid-air, and spam it throughout. It's not an instant-win move, but hey, I used it and after an admirable number of attempts I made it, and if I made it, you can too probably.
#150: Endgame II
Not too hard, you fight Skarlet, then Kenshi, then Rain, finally Shao Kahn.
For Skarlet, tap the projectiles she throws to knock them aside, then beat her down.
For Kenshi, Kenshi must be tapped 100 times to break his armor, then can you beat him down. Block and jump while touching him repeatedly to break the armor, then show him your bite.
Rain is easy. He can only be damaged after an earthquake. To cause an earthquake, shake the Vita when prompted, then go in for the kill. Note, Rain will rearmor once he's back to consciousness, so use lustrous flowy kombos to deal damage to him.
Shao Kahn is tough again, but hey, when has he not been? The goal here is to damage him enough, then quickly cut him up using the touchscreen. Repeat until he's down, then slice him to bits.
Netherrealm Studios was charitable enough to post a video on Bonus Challenge Tower (thanks to dr_mayus for the tip)

My Kung Fu Is Strong
Gain Mastery of 1 Fighter
See My Kung Fu is Stronger
My Kung Fu Is Stronger
Gain Mastery of All Fighters
This is what we in the business call a plat-killer. At least for most. There are a few things needed to 'master' a kharacter
- 100 Victories
- 150 X-Rays
- 100 -Alities
- 10,000 Pints of Blood Spilled
- 24 Hours of Play
With the 24 hour thing, the minimum for singke-player is 768 hours, 384 if you use Tag Practice. Yup, grab a chair, this is gonna be a while. Here's a bit of a roadmap to get you started.
- 100 Victories, 100 -Alities: Start out by going into Arcade Ladder and winning it all again and again, using -Alities on those whom you konquer. You may also get 150 X-Rays culminated throughout.
- 150 X-Rays, 10,000 Pints of Blood: Now wrap up the remaining X-Rays for the kharacter, and finish up on that blood.
- 24 Hours: The biggest step, go into Practice/Tag Practice, and rubber-band the [R] button so you are forever blocking. Do this while your Vita is hooked up to charge, and just let it go.
If you have TWO Vitas handy, then your victories, X-Rays, and -Alities just got a lot easier. Here's a guide for you:
- 150 X-Rays: On your two Vitas, input 4 times, 6, and 6 on each during the loading screen. This will give you unlimited super meter, so set the rounds fairly high, and let loose.
- 100 Victories, 100 -Alities: Input 2 times and 2 on the second Vita. This will give Player 2 25% health. Beat them down, -ality, rinse and repeat.
- 24 Hours: Second verse same as the first. Just rubber-band block in Practice/Tag Practice

Tag, You're It!
Perform and land a Tag Combo
Simple really. Just go to the Moves List of a kharacter while in Tag Ladder and perform one of the Tag Combos to pop this.
Note: This can't be earned in the Tutorial like the console one
Perform 1 of each type of "-ality"
For this you'll need to perform a Fatality, a Stage fatality, and a Babality, all at least once. View the -Alities section for all the kodes. Here are the stages you can perform a Stage fatality at:
- Chamber of the Flame [Note, there are 3 possible ways to off your opponent here]
- The Dead Pool
- The Street
- The Pit (Night)
- The Pit (Day)
- The Living Forest
It's been brought to my attention that this can be earned by going through the challenge tower, as some challenges require you perform a certain -Ality.
Perform any fighter's hidden finishing move
Perform a babality. Check the -Alities section for Babality kodes.
Perform every fighter's hidden finishing move
Translation: Perform everyone's Babality. Check out the -Alities section for kodes
The Fall Guy!
Discover all the deathtraps in Test Your Balance
There is a total of 5 deathtraps to find in Test Your Balance. You "discover" them by simply failing the challenge and falling off the platform.
- Sawed in two: A large saw blade with slice your kharacter in half as they plummet.
- Piranha Pool: You'll fall into a pool full of bloodthirsty piranhas. Noms!
- Incinerator: You'll get burned to a crisp as you fall.
- The Blender: You'll get finely diced by a bevy of fans going.
- Up against the ground: You fall onto a ground to your doom.
You Found Me!
Discover and fight Hidden Kombatant 1 in Arcade Ladder
It's Jade! To tangle with her, you're gonna have to reach Shang Tsung on the Arcade Ladder, pull off a Double Flawless Victory, and finish off Shang Tsung with a Fatality. Use the above exploit/tactic to get some retries in.
Note: Make sure it's actually Shang Tsung the Fatality is performed on, the game may not recognize it and call off the hidden fight.
Hide and Seek
Discover and fight Hidden Kombatant 2 in Arcade Ladder

Discover and fight Hidden Kombatant 3 in Arcade Ladder
Here we are with Reptile. What's to be done here is you must reach the Pit level in Arcade Ladder, obtain a double flawless victory and perform a stage fatality. Do this on Beginner, and use a kharacter with effective kombos. Use the strategy above if you have some trouble.
Brotherhood of Shadow
