The main thing I would like to highlight about this achievement is that when I had beaten all of the ghosts presented, I was only stood at 238/240. The two that were missing have special criteria for which they need to appear. I couldn't find any information on the internet as to how to get them to appear so I thought i'd share it here.

You need a 3 win streak or higher for Daishi to start appearing in the advanced category, this is the "Soul Successor" title which will be on page 10.

You will need a 5 win streak or higher for Unknown to start appearing in the advanced category, this is the "Lord of the Sea" title which will be on page 9.

To clarify, it doesn't matter about previous win streaks. The win streak has to be current for them to appear. Also setting the criteria to "new opponents" will make finding them much easier.

(Thanks to AndreFlash83 and Mr Jim PL for sharing that with me).

Also, there is an A2 rank Algol by the name of "Minami Naikos" who also only appears after a 3 win streak (Thanks to LMEPHISTO and xD PK for telling me about that one).

There are plenty of methods to use in which to beat the AI at the Advanced level as they are pretty cheap. I personally played keep away with Xiba then when I saw them sidestepping just in my range or going for an attack i'd hit the X X B combo which lands for very good damage. Also his Critical Edge has an automatic Guard Impact so that's also very useful.

I assume the Astaroth grab spam method which most people will use for Legendary Souls mode will work wonders too.

Any questions feel free to comment. Also If you thumbs down please give a reason as to why. Thanks.

I actually did all the 'A' grade players, and even B's, with Mitsurugi.
His Up+RB move, where he jumps into the air and lands a powerful vertical attack is fantastic.

This works wonders on all characters, especially those that attack a lot/constantly, such as Leixa, or Astaroth. Astaroth does his swinging, or head butting moves a lot so this catches him off guard a lot. Just don't go near the edge, just in case he or anyone do catch you.

Even if/when the computer is blocking and you hit, it does a lot of damage to their shield, and will soon give you the free shot, from when you break their blocking.

From time to time, throw in the odd other moves, nothing difficult, just a simple DOWN+B followed by Y. This will do a low attack followed with a nice vertical, that does take a decent amount of damage, and it does catch them most times, or do BACK+B, followed by Y. This doesn't hit as much from what i have seen, but its good to mix up.

This is more a tip than a guide but back out of the game mode after like every 10th match. My game got stuck when it tried to load the next fight so i had to dashboard and it deleted me 60 finished fights. So save yourself the frustration and rather back out so it can save your progress before you have do redo the whole fights like me :(

People were messaging me on how I got this, so here's a few of my strategies.

Early on, I used Hilde and used her forward+Y combo. That will knock your opponent down upon connection of the combo's 3rd and final hit. As they are on the ground, closed to the edge, I run at them waiting for them to stand up and ring them out with a sliding kick (Run+B). If that method doesn't work with some of the more aggressive or defensive AI, I found that backing up all the way to the ledge and using Hilde's LT grab (or A+Y) and ring them out that way.

Later on, you'll find that there are some opponents that you can't ring out because of their stages or because they're immune to grabs or they're just plain too aggressive. For this I have 2 solutions.

Xiba's Back+Y attack is great at catching opponents from a long range or while they're in mid attack animation. Follow it up with a sliding kick (Run+B) and a vertical ground hit (Down+Y). If things are getting overwhelming, don't forget to use Xiba's critical edge. It's very effective in stopping opponent's mid-combo because it has a guard impact built into it. In fact, I beat the majority of the A2s and A1s with this technique.

The other one is a little cheap, but I can vouch for its effectiveness. It just takes timing. (I beat Legendary Souls in 11minutes with this technique).

Astaroth's LB grab (A+X) is great for just about anyone. The trick is to grab your opponent at the beginning of the match or at your first opportunity. Run up to them as they are standing up and grab them again. You'll notice there is a rhythm to this. Rinse and Repeat!

Last but not least, missable characters. Some may find that they'll be sitting at 238/240 at the end, this didn't happen to me but here's the criteria:

For Daishi - 3 win streak (Title: Soul Successor)

For Unknown - 5 win streak (Title: Lord of the Sea)

Hope that helps. Soul Calibur V's AI is downright cheap in the higher levels of Quick Battle. Please share your tips in the comments or give any feedback to my solution.

This is more of a few tips and encouragement for players who are like me and not the greatest at this game. I tried my best to defeat as many warriors as I could without resorting to cheap ways to win. But eventually, I caved in and used Mitsurugi and Astaroth to get some easy wins. Try and use Mitsu for more aggressive AI. Use Astaroth for everything else.

Lots of people had problems with the A1 ranked Alissa. I beat her on my first try, using the Mitsurugi UP+RB (that's UP on the left analog stick and Right Bumper) move. She is incredibly aggressive. Using this move isn't always a guarantee that you will hit her, but it's your best bet.

Astaroth's LB (that's Left Bumper) spam grab is AMAZING. I defeated around 180 warriors using my main, Leixia, and my sub, Tira. It got to a point where I just couldn't keep up with the enemy AI. I probably spammed my way to at least 40 wins using the Astaroth method.

Do not be intimidated by the high rankings like the A1 and A2s. I never had one problem defeating them. Even the A2 Algol that people apparently had trouble with. I Astarothed him straight to hell! The only warrior that gave me any kind of trouble was the B3 ranked Laurel. This jerk uses the Patroklos style and promptly wiped the floor with me 11 straight times. I was to the point of launching my controller through the roof. But after experimenting, the Astaroth grab method was no good. She was simply too aggressive. So I used the Mitsu method and boom. Took care of her!

240 wins against the cheap AI clowns is alot, but it is achievable. If I can do it, anyone can. I used to lick the windows on the short bus as a kid, so I'm sure you won't have as hard of a time as I did.

Good luck!

Okay so this achievement takes about 12 hours of near constant fighting. I did the entire thing with a custom character Mitsurugi. His Down B Y move nearly always connects and fills his Edge Gauge pretty quickly. When you get enough to Edge attack use the Edge version of Down B RT RT. Alternating between the two works every time if one connects. A strategy for less defensive opponents is to spam his run B knee bump until the enemy is at the edge of the ring. Then you can ring them out either with Back B, Down B Y, or an A + X grab. Using Mitsurugi's Critical Edge seems weak so don't try it. The reason for being short is that you do more damage and I'd like to say you have a smaller hitbox... This method should work and Mitsurugi is a good pressure character so ring outs are relatively easy if you keep attacking. For cheap Devil Jin fighters like Harada Tekken, keep pressing his Y Y combo each time you block something. Hope this helps. Forgot to mention I hit a 28 win chain using this method and had a final ratio of 241 wins to 85 losses.

This spread sheet lists all the titles, which opponent has what title, the rank of the opponent, the playstyle they use, and the area in Quick Battle they can be found, if specified (which you may have to do). Also , it lists any special requirements that need to be met for certain opponents to appear (for example, for "Lord of the Sea," a 5-win streak needs be done for that opponent to appear):

As for which fighters are best to use, for opponents ranks E-B you could use whoever may like. But for ranks A-B, Xiba
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
is a recommended choice, like IHeartParamore suggested. I also alternated with Mitsurugi and followed the advice of NOT YOU 87 by using his Up+RB move. If the opponent was sidestepping too much, I went back to Xiba. Xiba's X, X, B combo workers wonders on those who do that.

All credit goes to users dite and absurdlyobfuscated for creating the spread sheet.

I would also use it in conjunction with this video, courtesy of and credit to YouTube user Zeed Bryant, which shows all of the titles. This helps figure out which one you are missing.

After some searching in the Internet I have found this video solution:

I have beaten all A Level AI with this trick. The most first try, a few after some trys. Only an A2 Level Natsu has given me problems.

The person in the video doesn´t use the abuse move very smart. Here are some tips from me:
1) All you need are two moves.
a) Wind Death assault
b) Fog Blanket

If you play against very aggressive AI and he is running all the time to you, you can counter the most moves with Fog Blanket. If the enemy is far away spam Wind Death assault. The most "A" KI´s can be beaten with only Wind Death assault. If you have an enemy where spamming isn´t useful try this.
Make 1 Wind Death assault. If he blocks move a bit back and make then Wind Death assault again, because the AI blocks fewer if they are try to move to you. This positioning is extremly important against more defensive AI players like "A" Level Mitsurugis (especially in small Arenas because you can ring out yourself with Wind Death Assault).
This tactic needs a bit of feeling/practice but I assume you after some matches you will win.
