[top]Tips & Strategies

-The Super Death Blow is a secret move not mentioned in the manual. Every time you pull off a Deathblow, simply move your right stick in the direction shown, not once but 3-4 more times in the same direction. You will know that it is a Super Deathblow when Travis glows for a brief moment before unleashing a blast of energy killing the enemies around him as well. This is very effective for Bitter difficulty and Assassination Missions.

-The Dark Step is another secret move and there are two kinds of Dark Steps you can pull off:

1) Move the left analog stick either left or right at the moment when an enemy attack is about to connect with you. This is called an On-Impact Dark Step, and it works for bosses as well; you will get a brief window with a darker background where you can unleash an insane amount of hits at supersonic speed.

2) Wait about 1 second after you BLOCK an enemy's attack and move your left stick left or right. This is called a Blocking Dark Step, and it works for bosses as well. The effect is the same as the previous Dark Step.

- Assassination Gig 22 and 14 are the best places for farming money so you can buy all the items in the game. In Assassination Gig 22 (Gamble Fight), as long as you are doing 70-80 kills each time, you will rack up 100k+ cash per attempt. In Assassination Gig 14 (Big Bang Anarchy), you can both farm kills and money at the same time. Refer to What a massacre! You're awesome, Travis! for more details.

-If you are about to fail an Assassination Mission or Part Time job hit before the time runs out and Break the Job to restart. Otherwise you have to drive all the way back to start the mission again.

-Every time you finish a rank go to all the shops and buy the latest; videos, Katanas, exercise lessons and clothing. This will keep you at your strongest and help prepare you to do the new ranks and side-missions.

[top]Roadmap

First Playthrough:

Play on either Sweet or Mild difficulty; Very Sweet and Bitter difficulties can only be unlocked after your first playthrough. On this playthrough, focus on getting all the Trading Cards in all boss stages as well as the wrestling masks next to save points before most boss fights. Always save before EVERY boss fight for Why don't you just start living in one? to unlock. When you rank up, occasionally you will get the option to “catch some Z’s” after you save at the toilet; accept to fight one of the 5 extra bosses from the sequel in a dream mode. Do this for all 5 extra bosses for their respective trophies.

Make sure to get all Lovikov balls, as well as the extra shirts hidden in dumpsters all over the map. Clear out all dots on the map by digging at them with , to get extra gold and use this map to get all the T-shirts in dumpsters (you can only see the dots after getting the Accelerator upgrade that comes with Tsubaki MK-I).

After you rank up to 1, choose to return to Santa Destroy instead of watching either the ending or the real ending, and finish up on the jobs, assassination missions and free fight missions for their respective trophies. Buy all available clothing from Area 51, and videos from Beef Head Videos (learn wrestling moves from them by watching them at your motel).

After buying all available Katanas and all their upgrades, and completing all training (do not forget to get the dumbbell training for the Blueberry, the very first weapon you come with, before switching to a stronger weapon), you will be eligible to watch the real ending.


Second Playthrough:

After you create your Clear Data, start a New Game + on Bitter difficulty. Focus on getting all extra Trading Cards in all boss stages as well as digging them up around the map, represented by pink dots. Buy all extra shirts from Area 51, until you have bought all clothing from that store for I'm closing up shop, bro and I wish I had all of this season's new items too... to unlock.

Use your Tsubaki MK-III’s infinite-energy upgrade to your advantage to ease you through Bitter difficulty, by holding down for a full charged attack (3 strikes, making you invulnerable during that short window). Also take advantage of the knockdown ability, + followed by + for an instant ground kill (use that against Beam-Katana enemies and gun users).


Third Playthrough:

After you create your Clear Data for the second time, start a New Game + on Very Sweet difficulty. The goal here is to get S Ranks on both damage taken and time taken for every boss stage, which is easy enough now that you have a fully-upgraded Tsubaki MK-III. Do not skip the cut scenes for female characters including female bosses, as they will be wearing different and sexier outfits on Very Sweet difficulty;You're blushing! will unlock after the real ending credits for this one.

Finish up on any remaining trophies, including the 5100 kills trophy, and get 15 million points on Score Attack Mode, accessed from the title menu. After the real ending credits roll, congratulations on your new platinum!

Welcome to the Garden of Madness
Obtained all Trophies

After killing countless enemies and spilling gallons of blood you can now relax with your new Platinum.

You are recognized as Rank 10 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 10: "Death Metal"

Story Related-cannot be missed

There is a tutorial at the beginning, but you can choose to skip it. There is nothing complicated about this stage.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

There are two phases in this boss battle. First, he will normally attack you with his extended blade; simply evade round him by holding down and pushing either left or right. Once his back is exposed to you after his attack sequence, unleash your and combo on him. If he happens to get stunned every now and then, immediately press at close range to use a wrestling move on him, (wrestling moves are your most damaging staple in your weapon arsenal, other than the full-charge attack of Tsubaki MK III, so use them often!)

The second phase involves him summoning two clones of himself. Focus on taking the two clones out one by one, or stand far away and let the real Death Metal come to you. Either way, he should fall easily enough.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 9 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 9: "Dr. Peace"

Story Related-cannot be missed

The only tricky thing here is the baseball minigame. This is when the enemies line themselves up and throw a ball at you. Simply wait for the ball to be right in front of you and hit to knock all the enemies out.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

At the beginning, quickly close the distance to Dr Peace until you can lock on to him with . Dodge whenever necessary, but hold down at all times! You will block his gun shots as long as your sword still has energy left in it; if energy runs out, you are vulnerable until you can recharge it with (by shaking the controller up and down).

He attacks normally by shooting every now and then from the centre of the baseball pitch; block the first few shots and then dodge left or right with while in lock-on mode. Close in on him while he is still shooting in the same direction or reloading his guns, and attack him with a few combos. Use a wrestling move with whenever he gets stunned, and when he is down, use this opportunity to recharge your sword with (unless you are using Tsubaki MK-III with its infinite-energy upgrade).

His other, significantly more dangerous attack is when he starts glowing and is about to do a quick-draw shot on you. Be prepared to dodge at just the right time when he is about to take out his guns; the timing isn’t too hard, but if you fail you will be in for a world of pain. Refer to The Destroy Warriors are nominating you for first place for tips on how to actually deflect this powerful shot.

At the end of this boss fight, Travis and Dr Peace will engage in a quick-draw event with weapons holstered. Simply press the button that pops up on the screen immediately to finish the fight.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 8 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 8: "Shinobu"

Story Related-cannot be missed

If any of the torch wielding enemies set you on fire, use a fire extinguisher to put yourself out (they are shown as yellow triangles on your map)

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

She is not overly hard. The only attacks you have to watch out for are her long-distance energy wave, which is easily dodged by just locking on to her and moving round her in a circle, and her close-range charged attack, (she will start to glow). Other than that, just evade round her at close quarters by holding down and pushing left or right, while she is attacking, until her back is exposed. If you stun her use a wrestling move. Rinse and repeat.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 7 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 7: "Destroy Man"

Story Related-cannot be missed

This superhero wannabe is a very dangerous villain, especially if it is your first time dealing with him. The boss stage is straightforward, but you will encounter enemies with guns for the first time, especially in the two warehouses later in the stage. Simply block their first few gunshots, dodge with while in lock-on mode and close in on them to finish them off.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

This boss has a variety of different attacks, some of which that can be quite deadly.

In the first phase, he will sometimes shoot a blue energy ball at you from his hands; simply dodge that. At close range, he may suddenly approach you and shoot an electrifying pulse from his hand; simply lock on and move away from him, and attack him from behind while he is still using this move. Other times, he will punch the ground to cause a small shockwave or shoot a radiating beam of light from his head. The latter is easily evaded by moving round him in a circle. Attack him from the sides or back as usual when there are openings, and wrestle with whenever he gets stunned.

In the second phase, he will “fly” up into the air and shoot blue energy balls at you. To knock Destroy Man down you need to hit his blast back at him. When he shoots at you hold and time your swing for when the energy is right in front of you. Doing it correctly will earn you You're ready for your Hollywood Debut .

Another option to knock him down is to simply run up to any of the three siren lights on the wall, dodging his energy balls along the way, and wait for his energy ball to destroy the light for you, moving away just in time. If the correct light is destroyed, Destroy Man will fall to the ground.

Now that he is knocked down he will have a new, really powerful attack up his sleeve: a radiating beam of light from his, erm, crotch. You have to be very careful here, so as to run round him in a circle, by locking on and holding either left or right, NOT diagonally. Travis will walk if you press diagonally, and you will end up being hit by this powerful beam for a lot of damage. He is open for quite a while after he stops his beam attack; finish him off with a few more wrestling moves or attacks of your own.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 6 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 6: "Holly Summers"

Story Related-cannot be missed

This mean half-machine, half-girl boss can pack a punch, but it is her boss stage that is the very annoying part. Not only is it filled to the brim with mines, but there are also gun-toting enemies, and lots of them, in fact. When you reach the boss, her area is filled with pit-traps that force you to wiggle out before she detonates the grenades she chucks into the hole with you.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

Take advantage of the water near the beach to avoid falling into any hidden pit-traps scattered all over the sand, even though it may take longer to reach her this way. She has a few attacks:

- When she throws knives at you, simply block and attack her immediately after.
- She may sometimes throw a grenade in front of her and detonate it; simply move away from her and resume attacking for a while.
- She may kick off sand to cover an exposed pit-trap. Do not be blinded by the kick.
- When she is glowing, she is about to unleash rockets from her body towards you. Simply move around her in a circle to evade the rockets, and attack her when her animation is done. Or you can fully charge your Tsubaki MK-III in a New Game + and destroy the rockets while releasing this charge attack on her.
-If you use the health chest before falling into a sandpit it will regenerate (only does this after the first time)

Do not forget to use wrestling moves every time she gets stunned. She might sometimes jump onto a big rock and shoot rockets at you; simply evade them and wait for her to come back down. If you do fall into a pit-trap, either wiggle out with or or depending on the screen prompt. Do not forget to pick up the weapon blueprint after the battle, to give to Naomi for Tsubaki MK-II.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 5 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 5: "Letz Shake"?

Story Related-cannot be missed

This is the easiest boss fight in the whole game, mainly because you do not get to fight him at all . Drive your motorcycle and follow the creepy blood trail on the road until you reach your destination, an underground tunnel, that is, after you have paid your fee to the UAA of course.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

None actually, since you will see why in the boss cut scene. You do not get to fight him at all, and you automatically win. The only enemies in the stage are katana-wielding enemies, totaling 9 in all, so use + to knock them down one by one and finish them off with + (provided you have learned the move from Lovikov). Enjoy your easy S ranks for this boss stage.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 4 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 4: "Harvey Moseiwitsch Volodarskii"

Story Related-cannot be missed

Welcome to the world of magic. After paying your fee to the UAA, proceed to the train station. The boss stage is pretty straightforward, except with one unique feature: a bullet-hell minigame. While you are dozing off in the train, this minigame will start and you just have to clear it as fast as you can. It does not matter how many continues you get; it does not affect your Damage Taken rating at the end of the boss stage, but only the Time Taken rating.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

Being a magician, Harvey has quite a few tricks up his sleeve. Let him approach you and do your usual evade-attack routine. His special attacks are as follows:

- Occasionally, he will summon birds to attack you. Simply move round him in a circle to evade that.
- He will sometimes invert the world upside-down. Forward and back works as normal, but left and right controls are inverted. Attack and evade normally as usual, and the world will turn back to normal after a while.
- If you stand close enough, eventually he will start glowing and if he is about to twirl his body, that is your cue to drop your lock-on mode and simply run around the stage; his twirling attack is very powerful. Simply run in circles to avoid his twirling attack and attack him once the animation ends.
- After losing a certain amount of health, Harvey will trap you in a standing coffin-like box with the help of his assistants. You must wiggle out with either or or , depending on the screen prompt, FAST, or else it is an instant death-kill if the coffin explodes inside with you still in it.

Continue attacking him, and using wrestling moves whenever he is stunned, and he should fall soon enough.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 3 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 3: "Speed Buster"

Story Related-cannot be missed

Similar to Rank 5, you will not get into an actual boss fight with Speed Buster herself but you will still have to contend with her enormous cannon along the way to her. The boss stage is short and simple: finish off all enemies, both in the bus interchange and in the bus itself as it makes its way to the boss battle. Save at the toilet as usual before getting ready.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

It is one really, really long boss area. You have to run from door to door, taking cover within buildings every time Speed Buster’s cannon fires at you. Make sure to pick up Trading Cards within this huge area. There are also enemies hidden in some of the buildings, so take care to deal with them respectively. If you happen to get hit by the cannon fire, repeatedly tap to minimize the damage taken.

Near the end of the boss area, on the left side, after dealing with a katana-wielding enemy and a few others, you will see a tall lamp post in the middle of a wall. Lock-on to it and attack it until it triggers a cut scene where lamp posts topple onto each other, destroying the cannon in the end. Simply run up to Speed Buster, and that is it. Enjoy the following cinematic, albeit gory as usual. Be sure to pick up the katana blueprint after the fight, to give to Naomi for Tsubaki MK-III.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 2 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated Rank 2: "Bad Girl"

Story Related-cannot be missed

This boss stage is either very short or long depending on how long you stay on your motorcycle to mow down the enemies. Head for Destroy Stadium after paying your fee to the UAA, and get ready to mow down endless waves of enemies on a vast baseball field with your motorcycle. Just be careful not to get knocked off the motorcycle while staying still, or else you will be in for a really long fight. Simply use and in conjunction while riding to knock down more enemies. After clearing out all enemies finally, you will be able to enter an underground tunnel from the baseball pitch.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

This boss is one mean, evil girl, who loves beating down masochists with her large bat. With that being said keep your distance with her and attack her only when openings arise. She has a few notable attacks:

- She sometimes attacks while twirling her bat around; that is your cue to dodge away, NOT block, as her final attack will still hit you.
- Try to stay between her and the conveyor belt. When she loses a certain amount of health, she may run to the conveyor belt and bat masochists at you, unless you are in the way. This way, you may stop her from doing that.
- If she bats masochists at you, simply dodge out of the way (or bat them back with good timing to earn So you like to play ball, huh? ) and take care of the masochists first before resuming the battle with Bad Girl.
- After losing some more health, Bad Girl will set her bat on fire. Watch her movements, and dodge away when she runs and jumps towards you to create a fiery explosion on the ground in a small radius.
- Finally she has a fatal death kill move up her sleeve. In the middle of battle, she may fall down to the ground, holding her face in one hand and the other on her bat and pretending to cry. NEVER attack her or go anywhere near her while she is doing that, otherwise, she will automatically trip you and unleash her one-hit death kill animation (batting your head to death *gross*). Simply wait it out until she gets back up. If you see her holding her face with BOTH hands, it is safe to attack her without mercy until she gets back up.

[top]
You are recognized as Rank 1 on the UAA Ranking.
Defeated "Jeane"

Story Related-cannot be missed

The first part of the boss stage involves riding your motorcycle on a highway and evading flaming cocktails thrown by enemy riders. Keep boosting at every possible moment, and soon enough, you will ride into a forest. Jump over fallen trees with pressed up, evade the blue rays at the right time, and you will eventually reach a raising bridge. Do NOT spam the button when the screen prompts you; simply press it one at a time when the screen prompt appears, and press up when prompted again at the bridge. If you spam the button, you will fail.

And then you will enter the forest on foot. Take care of all the katana-wielding enemies in your way, and save at the toilet, if it even is a toilet at all. Get ready for your last ranking battle!

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

Instead of Dark Star, you fight… Jeane. Watch the cut scene before the battle, and you will know why. Anyway, Jeane is very agile but easy to read. Let her approach you from a distance, evade her attacks and attack her at every opportunity, wrestling whenever she is stunned. There are three phases to this battle:

- First phase: The fight area is largest at that point in time. When she glows to do a charged attack, she only does it once.
- Second phase: The fight area is smaller now. When she glows to do a charged attack, she does it twice this time so dodge away!
- Third phase: The fight area becomes the smallest. When she glows to do a charged attack, she does it thrice now so dodge in succession until you are safe.

Like I said, she is easy to read despite being very fast. Take your time, and evade around her, attacking from the back as much as possible. She sometimes guards your attacks, so back off if that happens. Continue whittling her HP down and the fight will be over soon.

[top]
This is the Heroes' Paradise!
Defeated "Henry" for the True Ending

In order to unlock the real ending, you have to buy all katanas and all their upgrades. Once you finish Rank 1, after saving at the motel toilet, you will have the option to view either the ending or the real ending or return to Santa Destroy. Choose to view the real ending, finish the special boss battle and watch the credits. The trophy will unlock after this.

Cocoasg's Assassination Strategies

As expected from a special last boss, he packs quite a punch and is very agile. Focus on avoiding his purple balls whenever he throws them at you, and evade round him as he attacks. Wrestle him every time he gets stunned, and take advantage of Dark Steps to quickly put in several attacks in quick succession.

There are two types of charged attacks, when Henry is glowing:

- A short charged attack: Simply dodge this, and resume attacking.
- A long charged attack: You can tell if it is different, when Henry starts kneeling and aiming his sword at you, and glows for a brief period while charging you. This is very dangerous, and you MUST dodge this before he hits you, or else it is an instant death-kill. Game over.

PS: You can always use Tsubaki MK-III’s fully-charged attack to gain a few seconds of invulnerability while Henry does his charged attacks. Good luck.

Keep at it, and this battle will be over soon enough, though he has fairly high HP. Enjoy the real ending!

Don't worry it is not as bad as it sounds, here are some tips to help you out.

-Take your time and let the enemies come to you (don't wait too long though there is a time-limit).
-Try to trap enemies in hallways or corners where they cannot gang up on you.
-Use lock-on to find the nearest enemy.
-For gun toting enemies hold and reflect their bullets until they stop shooting.
-Utilize Super Death Blow (repeatedly press in the direction prompted) to take out surrounding enemies.
-If you are having trouble come back after you have bought a better Katana or work out more at the Thunder Ryu Dojo.
-Enemies spawn in the same area so learn where they come from and plan your attack.
-Finally for Mission 10 if you don't have a fully powered Tsubaki MK-III don't even try it. The enemies use Automatics and will keep firing and draining your energy. With the Energy Saving II you can block all day long and never get hurt.

Earned an S Rank on all Ranking Battles

Missable

After every ranked boss stage, you will be graded on how much damage you have taken and how long you took to finish the whole stage. Simply get a Rank S for BOTH “Time Taken” (time required varies for each rank battle) and “Damage Taken” (must be less than 40-50% for Rank S). You can only get this trophy during Story Mode; hence, it is missable. It is best to do this on a Very Sweet playthrough, while going for You're blushing! , and it should be very easy with the Tsubaki MK-III equipped.

Make sure to make a second save file before the boss fight, just in case you take too much damage and need to start again.

You will keep all money earned from the previous fight as well as the kills racked up; rinse and repeat until you get this trophy.

Assassination Gig 25: Crowded Train Carnage

First, learn the first Dumbbell training while you have the Blue Berry equipped, BEFORE you switch to a stronger katana, so that you do not have to switch back to the Blue Berry in case you forgot to learn the training for it.

There are a total of 4 Dumbbell training sessions (each pertaining to a different katana while you are equipped with that weapon), 8 Bench Pressing training sessions (unlocked one by one as you rank up), and 8 Squat training sessions (unlocked one by one as you rank up).

The final training sessions for Bench Pressing will come after Rank 2, the final Squat training will come after Rank 1 and the final Dumbbell training session will come after you are equipped with Tsubaki MK-III. Simply get them all to unlock this trophy. Just remember to visit the dojo every time you finish a ranked boss battle.

You are now fully initiated. Use your skills wisely!
Learned all of Lovikov's techniques

After ranking 8th in the UAA, go to the Plastic Model Bar which is represented as a beer mug symbol on the map, next to Thunder Ryu Building. There, a Russian guy by the name of Lovikov will offer to teach you new techniques in exchange for Lovikov balls scattered all over the map of Santa Destroy, they are represented as yellow dots which will appear after you leave the bar. Simply collect all 49 balls (it is best to do this immediately anyway) and exchange them to Lovikov to learn all 7 techniques available (7 balls for each technique).

The techniques are as follows:

• Memory of Three: Reveals enemies’ locations on the mini-map.
• Memory of Demon: Learn a knockdown move ( + ).
• Memory of Child: Able to run outside of battle by holding down .
• Memory of Woman: Your Dark Side Mode will last longer.
• Memory of Mask: Allows you to grab enemies from further away.
• Memory of Mystery: Gives extra bonuses depending on rank.
• Memory of White: A deathblow kill when an enemy is on the ground ( + ).

Some balls are hidden behind Free Fight mission symbols or other symbols on the map, so get them all before you unlock any Free Fight missions, just in case. One ball is hidden behind the home motel symbol, on the left side of the motel when facing the staircase.

Sweeter than you thought? Just like Sylvia!
Completed the game on "BITTER" difficulty

Simply start a New Game + on Bitter difficulty and see it through to completion. It is not as hard as it sounds. Enemies will have more HP than normal and hit harder for more damage, especially the bosses. You do not have to complete the real ending for the trophy to pop.

Here are a few golden rules to survive this difficulty:

• Make use of Tsubaki MK-III’s fully-charged attack to make quick work of enemies. For bosses, use this charged attack only when they are not attacking or about to; remember you are invulnerable while you are attacking with this charged attack (3 strikes). Do not leave yourself open while charging up the weapon if they are attacking!
• Memory of Demon and Memory of White, learnt from Lovikov, are very useful here, especially against katana-wielding and gun enemies. Knock them down with + as they approach and quickly finish them off with + ; do not spam this combo but rather wait for them to fully fall onto the ground until you see the combo prompt on screen. Otherwise, you will just be attacking instead of doing the deathblow kill, wasting time.
• Get all training sessions done first before you start on Bitter difficulty. You will benefit from all the strength, health and combo upgrades this way.
• Refer to the “Tips and Strategies” section at the beginning of this trophy guide on how to do the Power Deathblow, Dark Step and other secret techniques.

You're blushing!
Admired all slightly saucy costumes

This trophy is obtained after beating the game on a Very Sweet playthrough and then watching either one of the endings. You will notice that on this difficulty, female characters including bosses are wearing very skimpy outfits . Once the credits are done the trophy will unlock.

The Destroy Warriors are nominating you for first place
Reflected Dr. Peace's unblockable Quick Shot with your Beam Katana

Stay back enough from Dr. Peace, so you are out of lock-on range. Wait for him to start glowing, and that is your cue to press right when he draws his guns for the powerful quick draw shot. If you time it right, Travis will bounce the bullets back to Dr. Peace and this trophy will unlock. If you are too close, Travis will not be able to reflect the shot because it is too fast.

This can also be done in Armchair mode in your motel under Nightmares, if you miss it during Story Mode.

You're ready for your Hollywood Debut
Reflected Destroyman's Destroy Canon with your Beam Katana

Hold down while Destroy Man is about to unleash a blue energy ball from his hands, and let go when the energy ball is about to hit you. Travis will bounce the ball back to Destroy Man, and this trophy will unlock. This is easier to do when Destroyman is in his second stage (flying above you)

This can also be done in Armchair mode in your motel under Nightmares, if you miss it during Story Mode.

So you like to play ball, huh?
Reflected Bad Girl's human clones with your Beam Katana

Get ready to press either or right when the masochist is about to hit you, and you will be prompted to spin your stick around until Travis bounces the masochist back at Bad Girl. The trophy will unlock after this.

This can also be done in Armchair mode in your motel under Nightmares, if you miss it during Story Mode.

Very impressive
Defeated 30 enemies in a row without taking any damage

This is surprisingly very easy to obtain.

During Assassination Gig 14 – Big Bang Anarchy, simply hold down at all times and unleash your 777 Dark Side attack every time you kill 5 enemies (+). Just be careful not to attack recklessly after each Dark Side attack but watch your sides and back while guarding with . Repeat until you have racked up a chain of 30 kills or more, and this trophy will unlock.

Defeated "Nathan Copeland"

After beating Shinobu you will become Rank #8 and you will get the chance to catch some more ZZZs. Select yes and prepare to fight Nathan Copeland. Beat him and earn the trophy.

Dr_Mayus' Assassination Strategies

Copeland has 3 stages, but is not overly tough to beat.

Stage 1: All he does here is try to grab at you. Occasionally he will also pull out his boombox and fire 2 missiles at you. Dodge the missiles by rolling away and when he tries to grab you dodge and then spam him with and . Eventually he will say "Showtime" and then stage 2 starts.
Stage 2: Copeland has the same attacks but if you step in the middle of the stage the lights will fall on you. Just avoid the middle and use the same strategy from before. He will say "Showtime" again when he has lost enough health.
Stage 3: Ok, now all those guys on the outside start randomly shooting buckets of bullets at you. Dodge around (or block but this will drain your Beam Katana) and use the same strategy as before. When his health is very low he will begin spamming you with missiles, keep dodging them and after each one get in and hit him some more (if he sees stars use a wrestling move).

Do this until he explodes

Dr_Mayus' Assassination Strategies

This is not a hard fight at all. Kimmy has only two attacks. First off she will do a charge attack where she spins around, just side step out of the way and spam her with . Finally she blows...bubbles (like I said she is not a hard fight). Step out of the way of the bubbles and go back to spamming her with

Defeated "Matt Helms"

After beating Speed Buster you will become Rank #3 and you will get the chance to catch some more ZZZs. Select yes and prepare to fight Matt Helms. Beat him and earn the trophy.

Dr_Mayus' Assassination Strategies

Not an overly hard fight since Helms has only 3 attacks.

First off he will use a flamethrower on you, if you get hit you will be on fire and receive damage from that. Don't worry about going on fire though because this attacks leaves him wide open for you to wail on him (don't forget to use a wrestling move when he is stunned)

Second he will throw Molotov Cocktails at you, you cannot hit him during this attack so just run around and avoid getting hit.

Finally he will swing his weapon at you, try to time it so you can get into a duel with him. Then just spin around and win the duel.

Defeated "Alice Twilight"

After beating Bad Girl you will become Rank #2 and you will get the chance to catch some more ZZZs. Select yes and prepare to fight Alice Twilight. Beat her and earn the trophy.

Dr_Mayus' Assassination Strategies

Alice doesn't have many attacks but she makes up for that in speed. She will quickly move around the arena so just run after her. Her only real attack is when she starts to glow she will lunge at you, just side-step out of the way. She will also surround herself with her Katanas making her impossible to hit. Wait for her to spread them out again and then go in for the kill. Finally when she is on her pole you can get some more hits in as well.

Reaching for the top here too?

Don't you have some real work to do?

Did you find someone stronger than you?
Obtained a total score of 15,000,000 points in Score Attack

This is easier than it looks, especially as there are a total of 14 bosses in Score Attack. You only have to score a minimum of 1.1 million points per boss to get this trophy, but then you can easily get 2-3 million points for some of the easier bosses! In fact, I was able to get this trophy just by fighting only about 10 bosses, getting an average of 2 million points for the easier bosses; my best score was 2.8 million for one boss. So that means you can ignore having to fight Jeane, Henry or other harder bosses.

The key here is to minimize the time taken for the boss battle, and receive little to no damage to yourself. Make use of the Tsubaki MK-III’s fully-charged attack to shorten the fight, and sometimes, this charged attack also stuns the boss so you can put in a wrestling move after the charged attack. Recharge your sword once he is down on the ground. Note: the Tsubaki MK-III’s unlimited energy upgrade is not available in Score Attack.

Familiarize yourself with the attack patterns of every boss. Refer to each respective boss trophy for their own strategies and description of the attacks. Put in a first strike when the battle starts as well as wrestling moves as much as you can, for more bonus points. Keep at it and you will get this trophy in no time!
