    Thanks to PistolMcAwesome (formerly https://www.trueachievements.com/PeTeRL90.htm) for helping me trim this solution by clarifying what exactly needs to be done!

    All you need to do is use the special attack with everyone that each game starts with. This can be done in each game by pressing X or whichever button you assigned to the special function.

    For Streets of Rage simply press X (or whatever you assigned to Special attack) with Axel, Adam, and Blaze. The special attack will result in a police car driving up behind you and shooting a rocket launcher which will then ignite and kill everyone on your screen. You'll be doing it a total of 3 times, since you need to do it once with each character.

    For Streets of Rage 2, you need to press X with each character. It doesn't matter if it's a passive or active special for SoR 2 or 3.

    For Axel, the passive attack one looks like he forms a flaming dragon on his arm and he does like a windmill punch. His active one is a flurry of rapid punches.

    For Blaze, the passive one is a backflip kick and the active one is a hadoken of sorts (similar to Chun Li's kikkuko [sp] attack Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

    For Skate, the passive one is a spinning kick on the ground, where he lies down and spins around with his roller blades out. His active one is a "corkscrew kick" where he jumps in the air and literally corkscrew's downward at a forward angle.

    For Max, the passive one is a spinning clothesline, similar to what Zangief in street fighter does. His active one is a tackle type of attack where he charges and dives forward.

    For Streets of Rage 3, you also need to do each character's special attacks by pressing X, or holding forward and pressing X.

    Axel, Skate, and Blaze have the same specials as in Streets of Rage 2, while Zan's passive has him cover himself in electricity similar to Blanka in Street Fighter. Zan's active special attack has him extending one of his arms forward and charging it with electricity.

    PistolMcAwesomeActually you don't need to do all of that. All I did was push X for SoR 2 and 3 and the achievement popped for me.

    That'd be awesome, I'm going to confirm this by trying it on an alternate account and edit my solution accordingly if this holds true!

    I have just verified this and it holds true! Thanks PeTeRL90!

    ReaboHey thanks for the guide! Really helped. I made a video if anyone was wanting a visual to go with the text and it shows all special moves. I gave you credit too.


    Feel free to include in your guide :)

    Crater BobYeah, I only went through SoR1 with Blaze, but did all the other characters in SoR2 and 3, and it popped after I did the passive on Axel to finish everyone in 2. I still have yet to go back to SoR1, so I can confirm you only have to use one character in SoR1.

    Sir LumboIf anyone is wondering, you do not need to save your game. Simply load game from main menu, hit X with character to do special, then press Back and Reset and repeat. Switch between games by pressing back then Exit Game.

    imaidiot19Stupid question...do you actually have to have the special move before pressing X, or can you just load it up, press X with no Specials available, and move on to another character?

    Crims0nScorpionI'm unsure but you may only have to do one with each...I did everyone's X, ->+X, and ->->A but when I got to Sammy in SoR3 I got the achievement when I did only his regular X but idk, may have just gotten lucky lol
