Ok, this is considered the easiest of the achievements in this table. Your main goal is to, of course, start the princess multiball. There are a few ways to go about this, all result in the same thing.

First off, the idea is to fight and defeat a monster. There are 12 monsters not including the boss for getting all 12 fought. These monsters are found in 3 locations: the forest, the mill, and the cave. I will go through each method separately.

For the forest, you need to hit the bumpers about 15 times, then drop it into the spinning catch hole. This isn't very hard to do, and the spinning catch hole tracks the ball down. To the right of the mill ramp, you'll see the flashing Forest ramp that takes the ball into the forest. Once you have hit 15 times and gotten into the hole, you will pick a target. You have 4 choices, or you can skip. You can also replay any targets you have beaten already, and it will tell you what you've fought.

For the Mill, it's a bit more complicated and you don't get a whole lot of selection time. First, you need to go up the middle where the water wheel is. When you catch the ball onto it, it will take the ball up to a flipper. Time your hit with the flipper (left trigger controls this one) to send it to the right on a rail into the Mill. Here you have 4 holes that are controlled by side kickers. Pick your target and it will fall into the hole, selecting your choice maybe. Sometimes it won't hit that hole, but it is pretty controllable. If you miss you will exit the mill and skip, so you have a choice here.

Last, you have the cave that is on the far right under the mill. You need to get into this cave 2-3 times to be able to pick a target like in the forest. This is probably the hardest one to get into, but it is needed to get the 12 monsters beaten. This hole also helps you get loot in case you can't get into the rotating catch hole near the forest.

Once you have selected your opponent, you go into fight mode. You want to run your opponent's life gauge out before he runs yours out. On the digital display you have a timer as well as your health and damage with weapon, and your opponent's health and damage with weapon. To attack, you either need to send it up the sword ramp on the right, or the blue smash target on the left. You can also send it into the forest bumpers to get more time before your foe attacks, or send it to the far right and far left orbits to dodge. You can also send it up the shield ramp and then the sword ramp afterward to do a counter attack. Once you run your foe out of health, you get 2 things that you can collect other than the xp. You get access to the Loot holes which will let you select from your current item and the new item, these come in various colors. You also have access to the princess roulette wheel. This is what is needed for princess multiball.

To get into the roulette wheel, you must send the ball up the shield ramp. Under that ramp it will tell you if you are to meet the princess. As a nice touch, on the bumpers above the flippers is a treasure chest and a castle. The chest will be open if you need to collect loot, and the princess will be popped out if you need to meet her. Once in the roulette wheel chance, it will count down a timer to spin up the wheel, then tell you to hit the flipper to let the ball drop onto it. There are several nice things on this wheel, but they are only used in the multiball mode. For instance, there are a couple of jackpot lanes to open, a couple of super jackpot lanes, some extra balls, some added balls, and then there is one that says multiball.

I don't know for sure if you can get the achievement from the instant multiball, but I think you can (YOU CAN, confirmed by xPsychoticxRage, thanks). Otherwise, you need to lock 3 balls into the roulette wheel to access multiball the intended way to get the most bonus lanes open. Once you have locked your 3 balls, or landed in the instant multiball space, you unlock your achievement.

Happy hunting!
