This achievement is for killing enemies with Bolo's (the boy on the left of the three characters) grappling attack. This is not to be confused with his regular attack which seemingly uses the grappling hook... i.e. This is NOT for using the cn_X attack. Rather this is for using the cn_Y "attack". The "grappling attack" can only go in three directions; cn_upleft, cn_up, and cn_upright. It deals a measly 2 damage.

Since you can only hit enemies that are essentially above you, it's best to either kill the Purple Bats (low HP) throughout


Even better is to do all 20 in the AMMO BARON Boss Fight in World 4-3. The Ammo Baron spawns a litany of enemies as "shields" and they're mostly be above you. Walk under them and mash cn_up + cn_Y. You should easily be able to get all 20 in the boss fight.
