    From the description it would seem like any Smash Hit would work, however it's either glitched or needs a better description as I have only found one way to make the counter in the Milestones screen go up.

    First, you have to knock down a small enemy (throwing him will also work) and have the dizzy effect going on where birds fly over the enemy's head. When this happens, move over him, press down and mash the attack button repeatedly . Your 'Toad should start beating on the enemy if he has any amount of health left, then go to his smash hit attack (or go right to the smash hit attack if the enemy is low enough on health). Zitz will drill the enemy, Rash will claw the enemy's throat out, and Pimple's foot will become a weight that he crushes the enemy with.

    This doesn't seem to work with large enemies as the 'Toads will boot them off screen. It's also hard to do it with weak enemies as they typically die in one hit before becoming dizzy.

    The fastest way to grind this would be a spot with a few rats in level two (there are a few such areas) where you can easily take them out since there are only a few on the screen here at a time. What you can do is save the game, beat the rats in your area of choice, then reload the save and beat them over and over again.

    Borgenator Jump attacks are an easy way to knock down low health enemies and not do much damage. To execute this attack: cn_B then cn_A while in mid-air.

    NMANOZ You can actually save in the middle of doing the attack and load it up. It means you are guaranteed to get it without having to do the attack over and over.

    vSully ^This!

    I made a save as I started the stomp process and could simply reload the save, complete the stomp, and repeat.


    I had the tracker open and it would go up 1% each time. Still a bit of a grind but better than playing through normally or fighting multiple enemies.
