Once you finish he next match rinse and repeat until you have all 5 of the trophies. Once you do, feel free to change your team one final time to a team you prefer or one that you need a character ending for.

Master of Fate
Obtain all Trophies in the Game

To get the platinum for this game you will need to collect all the other trophies for this game.

I Buy the Issues
View one ending in arcade mode.

All you have to do to obtain this trophy is complete Arcade mode for the first time. It doesn't matter what team you use however I recommend keeping track somehow of which characters you have completed story with.

[top]
Wating for the Trade
View all endings in Arcade mode.

You will need to collect the ending for every character in the game by completing Arcade Mode with them. The best way to do this I foudn was to complete Arcade mode with a character and not choose them again (for instance if your team is Ryu, Deadpool, and Dante and you beat Galactus with Ryu then use someone else, Deadpool, and Dante) until you come down to your last three characters. That's when you have to make sure you beat the Galactus using a specific character. You can check who you have beaten Arcade with by going into the gallery and going into the list of character endings.

You DO NOT need the Galactus ending to get this trophy BUT you will need the Galactus ending to get the Comic Collector trophy. To get Galactus' ending simply get to the fight against Galactus and let him kill off your team and choose NOT to continue.

Here is the list in order shown in the character endings gallery:

Herculean Task
Beat Arcade mode on the hardest difficulty.

There are two ways you can attempt this. You can do it legit or you can try the cheap way. The legit way of course is to choose your three best characters and complete the game on Very Hard mode OR the cheap way is to find spammable characters and use them. While the spammable characters route sounds easier I don't believe it to be because the CPU will adapt to your fighting style and counter, such as when you shoot they will jump. You can try to set the button combinations to simple mode and use for any characters special attacks.

Either way this will take some time and patience because the CPU pulls off some really good combos and blocks a lot. Just keep continuing until you reach the end.

I recommend choosing 3 characters you are really good with and setting the time limit down to 30 seconds and playing under those conditions without spamming. Once you get to the fight against the Shadow Soldiers and Galactus try to take out the Shadow Soldiers without losing much health so you have more to work with against Galactus (Even if he rounds are set to 30 seconds each you will still have to fight the final battle under normal time conditions.

[top]
Saving My Quarters
Beat arcade mode without using any continues.

This one isn't very difficult at all. What you are going to want to do is choose a team of characters that you are good with. Set the difficulty to Very Easy with no time limit. Remember to guard as often as possible and use your Hyper Gauges every possible chance to dispatch of enemies quicker. be sure to use Team Arial Combos also to help fill up the Hyper Gauges faster.

Land a Viewtiful Combo. (Arcade/online only)

See Charles in Charge.

Land an Increible Combo. (Arcade/online only)

See Charles in Charge.

[top]
Charles in Charge
Land an Uncanny Combo. (Arcade/online only)

The in game Combo related trophies are all stackable so I recommend just getting them all out of the way by performing an Uncanny Combo. There are several teams you can use to pull of Uncanny Combos with ease. One for instance is Dante, Iron Man, and Dormammu. Fill up your Hyper Gauges until you have at least 3 (Team Arial Combos are good for getting Hyper Gauges faster) and wait for a fresh enemy with zero or little damage taken to enter the fight. Once they do wait until they are firmly planted on the ground and hit to do your Team Crossover Combination. The team of Dante, Iron Man, and Dormammu have a 93 Hit (Uncanny) Crossover Combination which will net you all three trophies in one.

[top]
Playtime Is Over
Surpass the rank of Amateur

When you first start out playing you will have no rank at all. Go into online and choose a ranked match. You will have to win only one or two fights (depending on the level of your opponent) to rank up for the first time. Once you rank up the first time you will be Amateur Rank and you will receive this trophy.

[top]
Leading the Charge
Surpass the rank of fighter

Once you surpass the rank of Amateur you will find yourself at the rank of Rookie. Fighter is the next step after rookie. Keep playing online ranked matches until you have won enough to rank up to Fighter (This should only take about 10 wins or so).

[top]
Combat Specialist
In Ranked Match, surpass the "1st" class rank or fight someone who has.

There are a few ways you can go about trying to obtain this trophy.

1. You can attempt to get to 1st Rank on your own
To get to a 1st rank is no easy task whatsoever. 1st Rank refers to anyone who is a "1st Ranger", "1st Scout", "1st Lord". It will require you to win over 1000 matches and lose only a couple hundred. This will take a lot of time and skill because of the cheap-asses online who think spamming moves is the new skill.
2. You can attempt to fight someone who has already reached 1st Rank. There are also two ways to go about this.
1. You can grab the PSN from the leaderboards for the 1st Rank (and higher) players and spam the living crap out of their message box begging them to fight you online and piss some people off along the way.
OR
2. You can do the recommended method of going into Online and go to Ranked Match and choose custom. Set the Region, Language, and Rank limit to "Any". You will get paired against a lot of people around your rank and some 4h or 5th rank fighters but you WILL eventually come across a 1st rank fighter. This may take some time but as time goes on more and more people are reaching 1st Rank so the chances are going up. Once you get paired against a 1st Rank or higher, either try to beat them to prove you aren't just a n00b or get your ass kicked. Either way after the match you will receive your trophy.

Welcome to Avengers Academy!

Clearn 160 missions in Mission mode.

[top]
A New Avenger
Clear 320 missions in Mission mode.

This trophy will be the hardest trophy for most people. You are going to be required to complete 320 out of the 360 combo challenges offered in the game. Some of them are challenging while some are mediocre at best. Do what you can with the ones you can and if you are spending too much time on a combo and getting too frustrated don't be afraid to skip over it or change to a different character and go back to it later.

This trophy will just be a test of patience and skill. None of he combos seem to be overly difficult so they can be learned and performed with enough time and practice. 88.88% is the key percentage without any downloadable characters to receive the trophy. Keep patient and keep trying and this trophy will come in time.

The DLC characters have Missions that will count towards this trophy (Thanks to grimydawg for the tip). They cost $4.99 each from he PSN store, the characters are Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath.

With the DLC characters the new percentage to get this trophy is 84.21%

I have read that in order to get this trophy you must complete at least 5 combo missions with each character and that is completely untrue. I got this trophy before getting 5 combos for anyone.

Mega Buster
Use 1,000 Hyper Combo Gauge bars. (Arcade/online only)

This trophy will come naturally as you progress through the game. Try to finish each match with no more Hyper Gauge bars left to ensure that it will go quickly so you don't have to worry about it. You can use to use your Hyper Gauges up.

[top]
Ultimate Nullifier
Perform 30 successful Advancing Guards. (Arcade/online only)

To Advanced Guard you will need to be holding back and press and together at the moment of impact. If you successfully Advanced Guard it will say Advanced Guard up in the top left hand corner of the screen. The easiest way to get 30 of them is to either practice with them or fight someone online who can use something like Ryu's Metsuo Haduken, which you can advanced block 5-6 times in a single attack. Either way get your 30 and the trophy is yours.

[top]
Be Gone!
Perform 10 Snap Backs. (Arcade/online only)

A Snap Back will require you to have a Hyper Gauge bar (at least one) and will require you to be trying to snap back an enemy who still has partners on his team. Once you are ready to do your Snap Back, get near your opponent and do a quarter circle forward motion (Down-Down+Forward-Forward) and hit either or . You must perform this ten times at any time in either arcade or while playing online. If you are having trouble with this try to do your Snap Backs against the computer on Very Easy Mode or find someone online that will just stand there for you to keep snapping them back.

[top]
Back at' Cha!
Perform 10 successful Crossover counters. (Arcade/online only)

This one can be a bit tricky to get the timing down right. To do a Crossover Counter you will need a Hyper Gauge bar. Once you have a Hyper Gauge bar keep blocking. When an opponent attacks move the joystick forward and hit either or . So you will basically just need to hi forward and a partner button while in a block.

he easiest way to get these is when you are fighting a projectile heavy enemy such as Deadpool, Magneto, or Iron Man. Simply get as far away from them as possible and wait for them to start using their projectiles against you.

You will know if you successfully pulled off a Crossover Counter if it says Crossover Counter below your health gauges after you finish inputting the command.

[top]
Excelsior!
Perform 10 Team Aerial Combos. (Arcade/online only)

A team aerial combo is when you switch characters while in the air mid-combo. To successfully pull one of these off simply hit your opponent into the ait with and jump in the air after him. Start a combo on him by pressing something like and hen hit plus any directional button and the characters will switch out and you will be able to continue your combo. You will know if you successfully pulled one off if it says Team Aerial Combo in the corner under your health gauges.

The combo should look like this: ,Jump,,,+/+/+/+

[top]
Big Bang Theory
Perform 30 Hyper Combo Finishes (Arcade/online only)

What you are going to want to do for this one is to finish the match with a Hyper Combo.

To do this simply save up a Hyper Gauge and wait until your opponent only has one member left and they have less than a quarter of their health left. Than pull off your Hyper Combo (All characters have different inputs but if you set the controls to simple you just have to press ). As long as you finish them off while using a solo Hyper Combo it will count towards the 30. Keep going until you have enough and once you have enough the trophy will unlock.

You can check your progress on these by going into your License by hittin from the Main Menu and scrolling to Battle Data. It shows how many offline Hyper Combo Finishes you have on the left hand side.

[top]
Galactic Smasher
Perform 30 Crossover Combination Finishes. (Arcade/online only)

For this you are going to have to finish the match with a Crossover Combination Finish

To do this simply save up 2 or more Hyper Gauges and wait until your opponent only has one member left and they have less than half health. Once those conditions are right simply use when you have at least two members on your team. As long as you finish them off while using a Crossover Combination it will count towards the 30. Keep going until you have enough and once you have enough the trophy will unlock.

Unfortunately there is no way to keep track of this one.

[top]
Wreak "Havok"
Use X-Factor in a match. (Arcade/online only)

This one is simple, all you have to do is activate X-Factor in any match. To activate X-Factor simply press together at the same time at any point in the fight. You will know if you have activated your X-Factor because a giant X will slash through the back of he screen and your characters will have a red ring around them.

[top]
Turn the Tables
Land a Team Aerial Counter in a match. (Arcade/online only)

This one revolves around luck for the most part. You have to let your opponent start an air combo and attempt a Team Aerial Combo. When they do their team aerial combo you have to counter it by pressing and the same directional button that they press when they attempt to pull off the combo. The best bet is to boost it with someone and plan out which directional button you plan on using for the combo. Other than boosting you have the best chances of getting this in ranked online games because the computer rarely uses Team Aerial Combos.

[top]
One Step Ahead
Land 50 First Attacks in a match. (Arcade/online only)

This one will require you to pull off 50 First Attacks through Arcade or Online.

To get a First Attack is simple, simply hit your opponent before they hit you. This will take a bit of time but should be able to be obtained before completing arcade with everyone. If not then simply finish off however many you need through online play. Setting the game difficulty in arcade to Very Easy will make First Attacks easier also.

Whose Side Are You On?
Bring about an end to the Civil War in an online match.

To get this trophy you will need to be online and fight someone who either has Captain America or Iron Man on their team. The catch is that if they have Iron Man you will need to have Captain America and if they have Captain America you will need Iron Man. Only problem is that you cannot see who your opponent is choosing and will not know until the round is about to start.

I recommend boosting this one in a player match. If you can't find anyone to boost with simply go into ranked matches and choose both Iron Man and Captain America as characters for your team and hope your opponent will choose either of them.

Regardless to whether you win or lose the fight you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Fate of Two Worlds

Only problem is that you cannot see who your opponent is choosing and will not know until the round is about to start.

I recommend boosting this one in a player match. If you can't find anyone to boost with simply go into ranked matches and choose both Ryu and Wolverine as characters for your team and hope your opponent will choose either of them (Wolverine is one of the more commonly used characters online so I recommend that if you only choose one of the two, to use Ryu).

Regardless to whether you win or lose the fight you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Duty and Deus Ex Machina
Make a match between a national hero and a killing machine a reality in an online match.

For this one you will need to fight someone using M.O.D.O.K. or Captain America. The catch is that if they have M.O.D.O.K. you will need to have Captain America and if they have Captain America you will need M.O.D.O.K.. Only problem is that you cannot see who your opponent is choosing and will not know until the round is about to start.

I recommend boosting this one in a player match. If you can't find anyone to boost with simply go into ranked matches and choose both M.O.D.O.K. and Captain America as characters for your team and hope your opponent will choose either of them (M.O.D.O.K. is a very rarely used character so I recommend choosing him if you are only going to choose one of the two).

Regardless to whether you win or lose the fight you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Copy This!
Put an end to this game of spider and fly in an online match.

For this one you will need to fight someone using TaskMaster or Spider-Man. The catch is that if they have TaskMaster. you will need to have Spider-Man and if they have Spider-Man you will need TaskMaster.

I recommend boosting this one in a player match. If you can't find anyone to boost with simply go into ranked matches and choose both TaskMaster and Spider-Man as characters for your team and hope your opponent will choose either of them (Spider-Man is more commonly used than TaskMaster so I recommend if you are only going to use one of the two to use TaskMaster).

Regardless to whether you win or lose the fight you will receive the trophy.

Raccoon City Incident
Settle things between former S.T.A.R.S. members in an online match.

I recommend boosting this one in a player match. If you can't find anyone to boost with simply go into ranked matches and choose both Chris and Wesker as characters for your team and hope your opponent will choose either of them (Wesker is more commonly used than Chris is so I recommend using Chris if you are only going to use one of the two).

Regardless to whether you win or lose the fight you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Fate of the Satsui no Hadou
Decide who is the true master of the fist in an online match.

For this one you will need to fight someone using Ryu or Akuma. The catch is that if they have Ryu you will need to have Akuma and if they have Akuma you will need Ryu. Only problem is that you cannot see who your opponent is choosing and will not know until the round is about to start.

I recommend boosting this one in a player match. If you can't find anyone to boost with simply go into ranked matches and choose both Ryu and Akuma as characters for your team and hope your opponent will choose either of them (Ryu is more commonly used than Akuma is so I recommend using Akuma if you are only going to use one of the two characters).

Regardless to whether you win or lose the fight you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Brave New World
Participate in any mode online.

This one is simple. Only thing you have to do is go online and play a match in Ranked, Player Match, Lobby Match, or Shadow Duel. Once you complete the match (win or lose) you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Steel Battalion
Block 100 times. (Arcade/online only)

This one is a 50/50 shot as far as difficulty. If you are used to fighting games than blocking is natural for you already so this trophy will just come with time. If you aren't used to fighting games or you are like me and don't block often then you will have to keep in mind to block to receive this trophy.

To block simply hold back on your joystick (or D-pad). You will need to actually block attacks for the block to count so what you want to do to get it done quick is start an Arcade Mode and set the time infinite and the damage to low (Leave difficulty on normal so it doesn't take ten minutes for the computer to want to attack). Once the fight start just hold back the entire time until the trophy pops.

[top]
Passport to Beatdown Country
Fight in all of the stages.

To get this trophy you will need to fight on all the stages. There are ten levels in the game. There is one level that is an arcade only level (Fate of the World) which is always the level that you fight Galactus on and there is a level that can only be played in 1P vs 2P (Danger Room) in online or offline mode.

These are the other 8 stages you will need to fight on for the trophy:
1) The Daily Bugle
2) Asgard
3) Demon Village
4) Kattelox Island
5) Hand Hideout
6) S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier
7) Metro City
8) Tricell Laboratory

[top]
Full Roster
Battle against all characters online.

This one is a real pain in the ass to do legit. What you are going to have to do is fight against every one of the 36 characters online. Sounds simple enough, right?

Well it really isn't, and the only reason is that some characters for some reason just don't get used.

I recommend fighting in ranked matches for a bit and keep a list of all the characters and remove the ones you have fought against until you have the rest of the online trophies, then boosting the rest of the characters in Player Matches.

Here is a list of characters that get used the least from what I saw while playing online for a full day:
1. Felicia
2. Viewtiful Joe
3. Super-Skrull
4. Thor
5. She-Hulk
6. M.O.D.O.K.
7. Storm

[top]
Who Will Answer the Call?
Participate in an 8 player Lobby online.

This trophy like any other group related trophy is going to get harder and harder as time goes on. The reason behind this is because in a lobby you each take turns fighter the winner of the last match, so a lot of times people won't want to wait around for heir turn and they look for a smaller lobby. Best way to go about this without organizing a boosting session is to search the lobbies for an 8 player lobby and join one that alrady has 7 people in it. You will be able to tell if there are seven people because 7/8 of the dots will be colored blue and red. This means that the lobby only needs one more person to become full. As soon as you enter the lobby the trophy will pop. You don't have to fight or even ready up, just be in a lobby at the same time as 7 other people.

[top]
A Hero Stands Alone
Win a match without calling your partners or switching out. (Arcade/online only)

What you are going to want to do is start an Arcade Mode fight using your best character first on your team. I recommend putting the difficulty on Very Easy to make it a less challenging trophy.

Just remember not to call in your partners using or , using any Aerial Team Combos, Crossover Counters, or Crossover Combination Hyper Combos.

Stick with just your first character and defeat your three opponents.

[top]
Need A Healing Factor
Win a match without blacking. (Arcade/online only)

This one may sound difficult to most players because of the sheer habit of blocking. Start Arcade Mode on Very Easy and try to remember not to block. Instead stay on an all out offence calling in your partners and pulling off the best combos you can. Once you win the match without having blocked once the trophy will pop.

[top]
School for the Gifted
Get a 5 game win streak in Ranked Match.

This one can be a tedious and difficult trophy. You can't quit out of the game mid-match if you are losing because the game will recognize it and penalize you for it. Another downfall is that the higher up in rank you are the tougher the enemies will be not to mention there are a ton of spammers online.

I recommend going for this one as soon as you start with your online to make it a bit easier. You can also go to Custom Rank Match and set the Rank to be around the same as you.

This trophy can be boosted.

To boost this trophy go into Ranked Match>Custom and set the settings to a different language that doesn't really get used like Portuguese and leave region (if you are both using the same region game) the same and rank the same (if you and your boosting partner are around the same rank), and have your partner set the same settings and use some sort of way to communicate such as AIM or Skype and hit Begin Search at about the same time. This will not always work and the more people trying to do this the harder it will be, but it does work most of the time.
