    Strikers are the "summons" that you can call on by pressing the Left Bumper during battle. These consume Gut Points (the same points that power your character's special attack), so if you are attempting to summon one and they don't come, that could be the cause.

    There are four strikers in this game. Knives Chau, Mr. Chau, Mrs. Chau, and Nega-Knives. Each of the initial four characters starts with the ability to summon Knives, while the secret character summons Nega-Knives instead. Mr. and Mrs. Chau are unlocked as strikers by finding and defeating Mr. Chau on the map screen. Only the character that beats Mr. Chau will unlock the strikers, but the attacks are the same regardless of who calls them. If a character has unlocked Mr. and Mrs. Chau, you will not be able to control who is summoned. Mr. Chau will sometimes come out instead of Knives, and Mrs. Chau is rarer still.

    Mr. Chau begins to appear randomly on the Map once you beat the Tood Ingram. You will recognize him as a character icon in black, standing on any of the available levels. If you enter a level he is not in, Mr. Chau will disappear and you will have to wait for him to reappear. If you go to the spot Mr. Chau is standing on, you will automatically begin the fight.

    Unlike other levels in this game, if you lose a life while fighting Mr. Chau you will be sent back to the menu and Mr. Chau will disappear temporarily. But don't worry, he will continue to randomly appear occasionally after you clear an area. It is typically recommended to play "The Main Stage", as it is fairly short and also gives you an extra life for your trouble.

    You will not be able to control which striker appears once you have unlocked Mr. and Mrs. Chau. Mr. Chau typically will show up at least once or twice every 10 times you use a striker. Mrs. Chau appeared for me every 15-20 times I summoned a striker.

    There are some discussions that this could be a glitched achievement, and there's a series of steps that those who have unlocked it have taken to avoid possible glitches.

    1) Make sure you unlocked Mr. and Mrs. Chau as strikers before you beat the game with any character.

    2) Make sure that you have successfully summoned both Mr. and Mrs. Chau as strikers before you beat the game with any character.

    3) Make sure you summon Knives with each playable character. Mr. and Mrs. Chau only need to be summoned by the character that first unlocked them.

    4) Make sure the striker actually hits an enemy with the attack. You will be able to tell this has worked as the enemies will take damage or react to the technique. One that frequently causes confusion is Kim's. Knives causes damage as she's leaving after the kiss. So make sure that one hits as well.

    5) Make sure you have unlocked the 5th playable character by beating story mode with all 4 original characters. His striker is unique and counts towards the achievement.

    With these tips in mind, the hardest part becomes beating Mr. Chau. So good luck!

    Eva LiDo you mean offline just to summon the strikers or I need to restart all the game offline?

    FIoyd BRI do not know for sure. I've also played a lot offline, but to no avail. I just noticed, through TA, that in recent times hundreds of people have unlocked it offline. If you know of anything to support this search, please comment here. Good luck!

    The first step in getting this achievement to pop is too beat the story mode with Scott, Ramona, Stills, and Kim. As soon as you start the first stage, hold the left and right trigger, then hit up up down down left right left right B A. This sacrifices a life and gives you 50 coins. repeat this step until you have 750 Canadian dollars. Pay off Scott's rental fees (It's the first shop after the sub-space highway), then max out your level and all you stats. from here, the game should take you roughly an hour.

    Note: If you see a man in black standing on one of the stages on the level select screen, go there. The man is Mr. Chau, and is critical for the achievement.

    After beating the game with all characters, you'll unlock Nega Scott.
    Call Knives as Nega Scott.

    If you've defeated Mr. Chau, load up whatever stage you want, and keep calling down strikers until both Mr. and Ms. Chau have made an appearance.

    To confirm, there are four strikers in the game:

    Knives Chau
    Mr Chau
    Mrs Chau
    Nega-Knives

    Nega-Knives can only be summoned by Nega-Scott, so this achievement represents having beaten the game with all the initially playable characters.

    Extra hint for those who purchased the DLC! Knives cannot summon herself so when you play through as her there are only two possible strikers that appear: Mr and Mrs Chau. This increases the likelihood of seeing the mother appear.

    mybabysdaddyI wish I had thought of the DLC approach, I must have spammed LB 300 times before Mrs. Chau appeared
