This achievement is for defeating the mark for Mission 54, a Gigantuar.

After trying numerous parties, setups involving Sentinels and what not, i've found that luck is your better bet for completing this mission/achievement. As well as 5 starring the mission (if you're going for 100% completion on this game).

My party was as follows, and you should be more than fine if your party is somewhat similar.

Lightning (leader) - 15135 HP, 1550 Strength
Fang - 19455 HP, 2101 Strength
Vanille - 15955 HP

I used only one paradigm, Tireless Charge (COM,COM,MED).

Equip your Lightning with either Lionheart or Ultima Weapon (preferred), for her quick stagger ability. Now for her accessories, equip her with AT LEAST a Speed Sash. The combination of her Weapon and the Speed Sash accessory will give you a RANDOM ability called Instant Chain.

Instant Chain will occasionally fill the enemy's chain gauge all the way up, making staggering really easy to achieve.

This may take you a few battles, and you may die a few times since you are relying on the luck of instant chain, but it is almost guaranteed you will 5 star this mission using this method.

First of all, use an Aegisol and a Fortisol before you approach the mark. Basically just have Light and Fang constantly Attacking while Vanille cures. (it may help to have her Healer's Staff for improved cure) Keep going until the chain gauge instantly fills up, stagger the enemy and keep pounding away with Fang and Lightning while Vanille cures. Before you know it the Gigantuar will fall.

Once again it may take a few times of dying or losing the battle. Just keep retrying with the same strategy and Instant Chain will eventually work it's magic.
