Here's how I did this, works no matter how bad you suck at this game:

1) Set options to Expert, 1 Round, 30 seconds.

2) Choose Charlotte. If you have a turbo controller (a Madcatz fight pad is what I used) set up turbo for the B button. It will make your life a lot easier.

3) Spam B. If you you get the first hit continue to spam B until the match ends and you win on time.

4) If they get the first hit or get ahead by some fluke during the match, continue to spam B to maintain control, but press FWD + Y between each three hits to attempt a throw. A successful throw or two should put you back on top. After mastering this technique, you should be able to get to Golba in about 3-4 minutes.

5) Die at Golba and choose the character you need. Attempt to throw Golba (FWD + Y) right at the start of the match. If it fails block and wait for his flurry of attacks to end and try again. Upon a successful throw hit LB as soon as he hits the ground for your unblockable attack which should connect when he stands up. You can try for a second unblockable attack as he gets up from the first which will end the match. Hitting with one unblockable, however, will usually get you far enough ahead to win the match on time by blocking. Sometimes Golba just unleashes mad fury and pwns you hard. Don't worry, just try again or switch characters. As you get better at the technique, you will usually be able to kill him within the first couple of tries, even with the slow characters.

6) Lather, rinse, repeat. Achievement unlocked.

(Also, just to be safe, make sure that you don't exit to dashboard until after the save screen following the Game Over screen when beating it with a character.)
