Complete all the Trials for Chapter V

To complete these Trials make sure you select Squire Difficulty after you have already completed the game once. It's not necessary, but will help a ton if you have any of the Ultimate Light / Shadow upgrades.

5-1 - Finish the level recovering your relics from the Chupacabras in less than 3 minuets.

This trial is pretty easy, just follow the little guy and then when you see him at the end don't jump right away, use a Fairy to distract him or he will zap you when you jump. I had 45 seconds left on the clock at the end.

5-2 - Finish the level without allowing Zobek to kill a single Ghoul.

Another easy trial, to make sure he doesn't kill any just use the grip attack on the Ghouls. It will grapple them from a distance as well, then land the QTE and it will kill them in 1-hit. He should not be able to kill any with this method.

5-3 - Finish the level without allowing Zobek to fall a single time.

I'm not sure how Zobek can fall, just make sure you clear out the enemies before you call him to hold the crank. Holy Water does wonders here, and just make sure you turn the crank to 270 degrees from the start.

5-4 - Finish the level and beat the mirror and lights puzzle in less than 2:30 minutes.

This one is a pain in the ass... make sure you have a full Shadow gauge, makes punching the mirrors easier.

Area Puzzle One - Really easy, just punch the mirror into the light and rotate toward the door and move onto the next puzzle.

Area Puzzle Two - Punch the statue near the bookshelf into the light path then turn it diagonally to the wall of the first room. Now go around the book depository and punch the 2nd mirror to the end of the path and the door will open. Go back around ( you can't jump over the mirror ) and advance to the next puzzle.

Area Puzzle Three - This one is the real tough one, kill the Gremlins as quickly as you can then punch the closest mirror toward the balcony and then toward the light beam. Rotate the beam to hit the second statue then dash over to that mirror and activate Shadow and punch it... it should take 1 shot to hit to the end then rotate it to go through the little hole in the opposite wall.

Follow the ray to the opposite side, if you have anything less than 1:02 left on the clock start over. Punch the mirror all the way to the end of it's path... then go back and Shadow dash through the broken wall to the left. Now keep Shadow active and quickly punch the mirror in this room away from the camera... it should reach the end of it's path and rotate the beam toward the door.

If done correctly you will not have to fight the Augmented Armor enemy. Then Shadow dash through the door and then rotate the final mirror toward the door.

5-5 Finish the level after finding and destroying 100 breakable objects before the allotted time.

The only advice I can give here is the XXYYY combo to smash the objects and that by the first jump you should have 20 objects destroyed... then 65 by the bridge and 90 before the stake. I think there are 102 breakable objects before the wall climbing... and every time you destroy an object it will add a little to the overall time.

5-6 Finish the level after attacking the Elite Vampire four consecutive times with it's own blade.

Just dodge his attacks and wait for him to throw his blade and complete the QTE to throw it back at him. DO NOT use any other attacks or that will reset the counter. Just continue to dodge and wait for the next blade-throw, try to keep him at a distance and he will be more likely to throw his blade.

5-7 Finish the level after killing three Skeleton Warriors without destroying their shields.

The easy way to do this is with Ultimate Light in the stake room where 3 Skeleton Warriors attack. If you do not have Ultimate Light then use Holy Cross ( Y then hold X with Light active ) this should destroy them without breaking their shield.
