Speed Kill
Kill 10 generic enemies before they spawn.

What are generic enemies?
The Hunter, Warrior, Alchemist, and Concubine are not generic enemies. Generic enemies can be found on the borders of the areas containing fertile ground. Press the back button to bring up a map containing the areas where fertile ground can be found. A generic enemy will spawn out of a pillar of black smoke.

The Setup
Play through the beginning of the game. Clean the first four fertile grounds and collect enough Light Seeds to buy your first ability.

Choosing your Ability
Abilities are energy plates that you gain access to in order to unlock fertile grounds. I choose red but any ability will work. Once you choose your ability clean a fertile land.

Teleport to a cleaned fertile land that is bordered by corrupted lands on both sides. If Reservoir is a clean fertile land then the corrupted lands bordering are Heaven's Stair and Construction Yard; use that as an example and it is the one that I used. Place a save right after you teleport.

The clean fertile land that you chose should have two paths that head toward the corrupted lands. Head down one path and save whenever you reach a platform. The last platform before you reach the corrupted land will have a generic enemy. If you don't get to the enemy in time to speed kill it by pressing x near the pillar of smoke before it spawns, then you should reload your save.

After you speed kill the enemy save and head back the way you came till you get to where you teleported. Follow the opposite path saving on each platform and when you encounter the next generic enemy press x near the pillar of smoke to speed kill it. Save and return back to the teleport spot.

Now use the first path again and the generic enemy will spawn so you can speed kill him again. Keep alternating paths until the achievement pops.

This methods goes pretty fast but it is not something you want to include in your playtime while attempting Speed Demon (12 hour playthrough) so create a new save with the intent to not play any further on that save after you have the achievement.

Throw Master (10 enemies thrown into pits) can be done using this same method.
