                               UNLOCKING ACHIEVEMENTS [LCK]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FASHION PLATE - 10 G
"Even a top rate fighter needs to coordinate properly!
You gotta get all of the Colors first!"

Oh gosh, this was so much easier in SFIV, haha.
Colors and taunts unlock automatically whenever you fight with a character and
return to the character selection or finish Arcade mode with them. It's only 1
color or taunt per fight, and 1 color and 1 taunt for every  arcade mode clear,
so it'll take you a while either way.
The easiest way is to this is grinding. Go into Player vs CPU mode and choose
a character, as soon as the battle starts, pause the game and return to the
character selection, and voila, you unlocked a new taunt or color.

Taunts and colors are alternating between each other, it basically goes like
this:
Taunt 2 - Color 3 - Taunt 3 - ... - Color 10 - Taunt 10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DAN THE MAN - 10 G
"Mastery of the Saikyo arts requires mastery of the Personal Action!
Collect 'em all, punk!"

See FASHION PLATE for this, it's just the taunt version of it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENTITLED - 50 G
"A Title does not tell all of a man, sir, but if I were to see one Title,
I'd want them all..."

This is one of the more difficult achievements to get, and I haven't gotten
it myself yet. There's a set of standard titles already unlocked from the
start. Then every character has 5 silver, 5 gold, a blue and a red specific
titles.

Akuma Killer	Complete Arcade Mode on Medium or higher and
		use no continue to fight Akuma, beat him.
Gouken Killer	complete Arcade Mode on Medium or higher and
		beat Gouken; see LONG TIME NO SEE to see which
		things you have to fulfill.

Character specific titles:
Blue 		Complete Arcade Mode on any difficulty.
Red 		Complete Arcade Mode on Hardest difficulty.
Silver #1	Complete 2 different trials.
Silver #2	Complete 3 different trials.
Silver #3	Complete 4 different trials.
Silver #4	Complete 6 different trials.
Silver #5	Complete 10 different trials.
Gold #1		Complete 12 different trials.
Gold #2		Complete 14 different trials.
Gold #3		Complete 18 different trials.
Gold #4		Complete 20 different trials.
Gold #5		Complete 22 different trials.


The majority of other titles are recieved by playing online mode and
achieving a specific status. So you get "Dizzy Chicken" if you
are dizzied in online mode, for instance.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ICONOCLAST - 50 G
"Oh my gosh, those Icons are so adorable! I gotta find Don-chan and
catch 'em all!"

This is similar to ENTITLED.
There's 4 icons for each character's Trial set.
Character Icon #1	Complete any trial with the character.
Character Icon #2	Complete 8 different trials with the character.
Character Icon #3	Complete 16 different trials with the character.
Character Icon #4	Complete all trials with the character.

The icons depicting red Japanese characters are unlocked with trials, as well,
and independent from the characters you play through them with.

Some other icons are gotten by playing through Arcade on different
difficulties (playing through a higher difficulty will unlock all icons related
to all levels below it).

The chicken with rambo bandana is unlocked by creating an online lobby.

Most other icons, though, are recieved when playing online.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OVERACHIEVER - 0 G
"Attain all the Achievements! The path of the warrior demands this from
those who walk on it!"

You have to unlock every single achievement in this game, then this will
automatically unlock.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                               MOVE ACHIEVEMENTS [MVE]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPECIAL MOVEMENT - 10 G
"Do a Special Move 100 times! If you're a true student of the Rindo-kan dojo,
it's your duty!"

This is probably one of the easiest achievements in the whole game. Since you
will use a certain special move in the Arcade mode quite a lot, you don't even
need to do something specially for this. Just check out how to unlock
CLEAR HEADED for this.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EXTRA! EXTRA! - 10 G
"Battle requires courage! Train by using your EX Gauge to successfully
land 100 EX Moves!"

This is a bit more difficult than the one with the specials. EX moves are if
you do the combination for a special move, but instead of a single kick or
punch button, you press the button for all three of them. The character then
will flash yellow and do a stronger version of the special move. It also
consumes 1/4 of your Super bar (the blue one that fills when hitting enemies
or getting hit).

On the X-Box controller, the two left shoulder buttons are the "three attack"
buttons.

Since I don't know if moves that are performed in Training count in SSFIV:
The grinder way to get this is to play against a CPU on Easiest and whenever
you see the first part of the Super bar being full, using an EX move.
Alternatively, you can plug in a second controller and EX with both characters.
However, if you just play a lot, it will automatically unlock by itself.

Keep in mind, though, that all of these moves have to CONNECT.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SUPER, MAN! - 10 G
"To battle is to win a fight with overwhelming strength! Show me you can do
100 Super Combos!"

Do 100 Super combos.
This is unlocked like EXTRA! EXTRA!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ULTRA, MAN! - 10 G
"If yer gonna fight, give it your all, pal. Performing 100 Ultra Combos
oughta do it, eh?"

Do 100 Ultra Combos.
This is unlocked like EXTRA! EXTRA!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IT TAKES FOCUS - 10 G
"Your mission, should you wish to join Delta Red, is to connect with 100
Focus Attacks!"

Do 100 Focus Attacks. These are performed by pressing Medium Punch and
Medium Kick simultaneously. The character then is covered in paint splotches.
Like the EX moves, the Focus attacks have to CONNECT to the enemy.
This is unlocked like EXTRA! EXTRA!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SUPERIOR SUPER - 10 G
"Trust your instincts and winning will come easy. Let's begin with 50 Super
Combo finishes!"

This is trickier than the other move-based achievements, because you
definitely cannot do these in training mode. So you HAVE to do VS, Online
or Arcade fights for this.
You have to kill your enemy with a Super Combo to get a count towards this
achievement.

It's actually similarily unlocked like EXTRA! EXTRA!, though, so go to the
Player VS CPU or Player VS Player modes and grind the hell out of yourself.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ULTIMATE ULTRA - 10 G
"Candy always says you gotta win with style, so go out there and perform
50 Ultra Combo finishes!"

This is the same as SUPERIOR SUPER, just with Ultra Combos instead.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SUNSPOTTER - 10 G
"Amigo, perform 365 Super or Ultra Combo finishes against your opponents!
The dawn is coming!"

This is just a combinated and extended version of SUPERIOR SUPER and
ULTIMATE ULTRA.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABSOLUTE PERFECTION - 20 G
"Lauren's waiting, so how about you finish your fights quickly and get
30 Perfects. Sound good?"

This is not really move-based, but because I'm lacking a place to put it, I
will take it here. You get a Perfect when you beat your enemy without
getting hit once. The easiest way to do this is to plug in a second player
and give him a good beating. If you don't have a second controller, use
a CPU on Easiest.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                               ARCADE ACHIEVEMENTS [RCD]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CLEAR HEADED - 10 G
"Hey! Got time to kill? Try to clear Arcade Mode on Medium or higher!
That's all you gotta do!"

Yep, that's all. Alright, so, to breeze through the whole Arcade mode, you
will be using Zangief. Zangief has a move called "Double Lariat", which makes
him throw out his fists and spin around. You can do this by pressing LP+MP+HP,
or, if you use the standard controls scheme for the XBox controller, it's one
of the left shoulder buttons. There's a shorter version performed with LK+MK+HK,
called "Quick Double Lariat". It's the other left shoulder button on the
XBox controller.

Now, the cool thing is, that CPU enemies have no idea how to deal with the
Lariat. Just spam the hell out of it. There's only a few characters that can
be a bit problematic, mainly Cammy, as her Spiral Arrow attack goes below the
move. Another cool thing is that this is counted as a special move, so you will
get the SPECIAL MOVEMENT achievement in no time when playing Arcade.

To get this achievement here, just pick Zangief, change the diffculty to
Hardest, round count to 1 and pwn all people with the Lariat. That's all.
It doesn't matter how many continues you lose.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALL CLEAR - 10 G
"To get strong takes lots of fighting! Clear Arcade Mode on Medium or higher
with all characters!"

This is somewhat more difficult, but still not a huge problem. For this one,
you will use Zangief again, this time on Medium. Clearing Arcade actually only
means beating Seth, however, there's the achievement RIVAL SCHOOLED, where you
have to beat your Rival with every fighter. So: As soon as you get to your
Rival Battle, lose intentionally. Then use the continue and switch to another
character.
Beat the rival and Seth and you have completed the character. It doesn't matter
how many continues you use for that, as well.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HERCULEAN EFFORT - 10 G
"Can you finish Arcade Mode on Medium or higher without using a continue?
Show me you can!"

Set Arcade to Medium and Lariat your way through the game with Zangief. If you
finished off Seth, there will be Akuma as bonus enemy, you should beat him, too.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HARD TIMES - 20 G
"To escape death is to beat the strongest of the strong. Finish Arcade Mode on
Hardest, kid!"

See CLEAR HEADED.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LONG TIME NO SEE - 50 G
"Do you wish for defeat? If so, complete Arcade Mode on Hardest difficulty and
beat Gouken!"

This is one of the more difficult achievements to get. Set the round count to 1.
Then get at least 1 perfect, 3 Ultra Finishes, 5 first attacks and don't use
any continues to meet Gouken after beating Seth. Then beat Gouken. Once you did
this, this achievement is unlocked.
Alright, so I cannot give you a lot of tips. The Lariat method seems to be the
most reliable here, so you should learn how to perform his Ultra Combo.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RIVAL SCHOOLED - 20 G
"See your future by clearing every Rival Battle on Medium or higher with
every character."

See ALL CLEAR.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPEED FREAK - 30 G
"Finish each round in Arcade Mode on Medium or higher in 20 seconds or less.
Too easy."

Yeah, that's not that hard indeed. Zangief is your best option as well, here.
Set the difficulty to Medium. You should try throwing in some Spinning
Piledrivers to deal more damage.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                               CHALLENGE ACHIEVEMENTS [CHL]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GOOD START - 10 G
"All of nature must withstand a trial. You must clear 10 trials in Trial Mode
to succeed."

Easy. Just complete a few trials on characters. You should have no problem with
that.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TRAIL OF TRIALS - 20 G
"There is no shortcut in the art of Yoga. Aim to clear any character's Trial
Mode trials!"

This is a bit more difficult. The chances of you completing this with a
standard XBox Controller are very low, especially in the later things. However,
a good character to do this seems to be Zangief. Hakan, as well.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TRIAL ATHLETE - 50 G
"I shall assimilate all and be all-powerful! Clear all Trial Mode challenges,
and so can you!"

This is probably one of the most difficult, if not THE most difficult
achievement to get in this game. You have to complete all trials with all
characters in the game. Good luck!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OH! MY CAR! - 10 G
"Hee hee, destruction is so much fun! Score 80,000 points or more in the
Car Crusher bonus stage!"

To be able to play the Car Crusher stage, play through Arcade once on any
difficulty.
This is pretty easy to do. I used Guy for this and used his standing HK, then
his crouching HK until the car was gone.

Also, if you play through this bonus stage with Guy or Cody, one of the goons
from Final Fight appears and yells "Oh! My Car!" just like in Final Fight.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BARREL OF LAUGHS - 10 G
"No need for barrels without oil! Score 110,000 points or more in the
Barrel Buster bonus stage!"

This one is a bit more difficult than the Car one, but it's not really hard
either. Just like the Car Crusher, Barrel Buster is unlocked by playing once
through Arcade.

I used Akuma for this. I jumped up and used his aerial HP to crush all barrels
before they could even land.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                               ONLINE ACHIEVEMENTS [LBB]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IT BEGINS - 10 G
"The fight starts here! Set your Title and Icon, and begin fighting on Xbox
Live!"

This is probably the easiest achievement in this game. As soon as you start the
game, press RB, then X to go to the icon selection and Y to go to the title
selection. Change each of them to something else, and you'll have this thing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
REPLAYER - 10 G
"Watch 30 Replays via the Replay Channel! Isn't it fun watching people go at it
tooth and nail!?"

This is very easy. Go online and to the Replay Channel, then simply watch. The
replays will continue automatically. I muted my TV and did something at my PC
meanwhile. It took about 2 hours until all of them were completed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENDLESS LOBBYIST - 10 G
"It's only natural for warriors to seek fights! Create 30 Endless Battle
lobbies!"

Alright, after trying I found out that this achievement is NOT done by opening
up 30 online lobbies and then quitting immediately. Apparently, you have to
open a lobby, have at least 1 game in it, and then close it for it to be
counted. Will take some time, but should be easy to do, since you don't have
to win.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEAM LOBBYIST - 10 G
"Hey mon, battlin' is fun, no? Go out and create 30 Team Battle lobbies and
enjoy the rhythm!"

Same as ENDLESS LOBBYIST, just with Team Battle lobbies.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
QUARTER UP - 10 G
"Fight 30 opponents via Arcade Fight Request. It'd be easy with the right
bait, he he."

Set the Arcade Fight Request on while playing through the Arcade mode. You have
to finish at least 1 fight with the other player for this to count. You can
leave the lobby once you finished your round, because even if you would play
30 matches with one player, it would still count as 1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                               ONLINE BATTLE ACHIEVEMENTS [XBL]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: Since these achievements are only recieved through playing online and
doing good there, I cannot help you out here, as there are no tricks to get
around it. Just play online and do your best, eventually you'll get them.
But for completion's sake, I will list them anyway.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRST TIMER - 10 G
"I'll never forget my first time for Ryu's sake! Win one Ranked Match!
Gotta aim for the top!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THREEPEAT - 20 G
"You think being this good is easy? Let's see you win 3 Ranked Matches in a

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Matches in a row!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TENPEAT - 50 G

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MOVING ON UP - 10 G
"Ya need to do anything to reach the top of the food chain! Let's see a Rank
Up via Ranked Match!"

These rank ups you get when playing online with the character. Some time, you
will be noticed that your match is going to be a rank-up one.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOW YOU C ME - 20 G
"I wrestle only the strong! You shall rank up to C Rank if you wanna face me,
comrade!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

first, sucka!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BATTLE MASTER - 20 G
"Only winners can attain such beauty. Win 30 Xbox LIVE matches and I may share
my beauty secrets."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LEGENDARY FIGHTER - 50 G
"I shall make you the right hand of Shadaloo if you can win 100 Xbox LIVE
matches!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WORLDY WARRIOR - 10 G
"Let's do this, amigo! Fight 50 Xbox LIVE matches, because that's the only way
to become strong!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BRING IT ON! - 20 G
"No comrade, this will not do! We must become stronger, for our fans! Fight 100
Xbox LIVE matches!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Fighting is fun, huh? Well then, let's aim for 300 Xbox LIVE matches fought,
OK buddy?"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEAM PLAYER - 10 G
"A 1-on-1 fight is fun, but it's more fun with friends! Try fighting in a
Team Battle!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

stronger!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEAMWORKER - 30 G
"A pro can win with any team. Win 10 Team Battles but don't forget, you have to
win too!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
KEEP ON TRUCKIN' - 10 G
"If you want to focus on nothing but the fight, entering an Endless Battle is
for you!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THREE FOR THE ROAD - 20 G
"n the pursuit of strength, one must have a goal! In Endless Battle win 3
matches in a row."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENDLESS TEN - 50 G
"Throw away your fears and focus on the fight! Win 10 fights in a row in
Endless Battle!"
