At the risk of getting negative votes for posting a solution to an achievement I haven't unlocked yet, I'll share a (hopefully) detailed description of what it is that you have to do to unlock this.

To unlock this achievement, you need to equip two new characters (or character skins rather), one plant and one zombie, that are inside two very well-protected chests. The steps below will guide you to get to those two chests.

So here we go...

When you go to the new Trials of Gnomus area, the one that unlocks the Secrets of Secrets achievement, if you explore a bit you'll notice that there are 4 doors, one on each corner. These doors are locked and you need a key of the corresponding color (red, blue, green and yellow) to open it.

To get those keys, you need to collect 50 rainbow stars by either playing the new modes (which are not always on) or trading 7 yellow stars for 1 rainbow star to the seagull in the Town Hall and then use those 50 rainbow stars to open the middle chest that's in the Town Hall as well.

This chest will be available to open only while one of the events that reward rainbow stars is active, and can be opened only once per event. There are three chests that can be opened, one for 10 rainbow stars, one for 30 rainbow stars and the one we're interested in for 50 rainbow stars (which is the max number of stars you can have at any one time). As far as I know, the chests for 10 and 30 rainbow stars do not give the keys you need, while the chest for 50 rainbow star does 75% of the times (thanks Fristi61 for the info).

So, once you get your 50 rainbow stars, go open the middle chest and you'll get some coins and a pack that you will have available at the vending machine. Go to the vending machine to open it (using cn_Y) and see what key you get.

After opening the pack, go to the new area with the 4 doors and head to the door whose color corresponds to your key. When you approach it, you'll see a prompt to press cn_B to unlock it. Do so, and a portal appears. Behind that portal there is a challenge that you have to pass within the given time to get a code. Once you get the code, note it down and leave the challenge area through the portal. If you don't write the code down or take a screenshot (or somehow make sure you'll remember it), you'll have to beat that challenge again to get a new code (or the same code again?). So don't leave until you have that info safely stored somewhere. (thanks capt curlybob for the info).

You'll be back in the new area. Go to the center and jump down the central portal. You'll fall to a room where theres's a machine to enter a code. Step on the slabs following the code you noted down after finishing the challenge (the first symbol you step on will be the uppermost symbol) to summon the boss corresponding to the color you're working on. Beat the boss. Repeat for the other 3 doors.

Below I'm adding some videos I found in YouTube showing strategies for the challenges. I take no credit for those, they are all from YouTube user GermanShu.

Blue Door:

After fighting each boss, you'll get a "revised" code, which is basically the same code you had with two of the symbols striken out (or in red, I can't remember). You use those two symbols to form a fifth code (two symbols from each color-boss).

Once you enter the 5th code, you will fight a wave of gnomes and then King Gnomus. After that, the 5th statue on the throne in the main area is destroyed, revealing a portal where there are two chests, one for plants and one for zombies. Each of these chests has 5 locks, and you need 15 rainbow stars to open each lock, meaning a total of 75 rainbow stars per chest and a grand total of 150 rainbow stars to open both. Once you open both chests, you need to change your characters to Hover Goat-3000 and Torchwwod to unlock the achievement. (thank you ReAl ImPuLsE and smakzillaa for the info). That is, you have to actually use them to get the achievement, opening the chests isn't enough (thank you BegFourMercy for the info).

Once you use a key, that portal remains available, and you can open a new one and have more than one unbeaten challenge at a time.

If you beat the challenge, you don't have to beat the boss right away, the code you get can be used later on. You can also use it, quit, and come back later and input it again, it will still work.
