Here it is, by far the hardest achievement of the game. Rewind and fast-forward are disabled, so you will have to legitimately prove your mettle here. The following is a great video by Rare Ultra (not my video) over an hour in length which includes video walkthroughs of all 20 challenges.

At first this task can seem rather daunting, but fear not: Most of these challenges just take some practice and/or a specific strategy. Many of them I obtained in fewer than 10 attempts. Following are some brief tips I have for selected challenges (I left out easier ones):

Beyond Oasis: Giant Enemy Crab - Try to use lots of vertical movements. Go underneath his jumps and pound him when he lands.

Crack Down: Get Your Skates On - Refer to the video guide on how to speedrun through this. You *can* afford to make a few mistakes!

Golden Axe: Duel Purpose - My go-to offense here is dash-jump-attack in that order. Evasion is very important and staying in constant motion while simultaneously playing offense is what worked for me eventually. One of the tougher challenges.

Golden Axe 2: What Is Best? - Another tough one. Dash-jump-attack in that order and do it often. Try to isolate the skeletons and save the big guy for last. You can also throw the enemies into each other for damaging knockdowns.

Ristar: Rising Above - Video guide is helpful to get a handle on stage layout. Be careful when you reach the boss. He takes 3 hits before going down.

Shadow Dancer: A Dog Is For Life - This was the most annoying challenge for me because of the dog's weird mechanics. I attempted this more than any other challenge! Video guide is very helpful for how to complete the level while staying in puppy form.

Shining Force: Stay With Me! - One of the longer, more strategic paced challenges. I actually mis-read the requirement and completed it without losing a single party member. When you get to the part with Giant Bats on the left, try to eliminate them before going to the Rune Knights. Rune Knights have high movement and attack, and if they get a second attack they can kill a party member even if they are at full health. I wouldn't bring Tao, Luke or Lowe anywhere near one. Always heal your wounds with Lowe's magic or, better yet, with the huge stash of Medical Herbs your party have in their item bags.

Streets of Rage: Eating Turkey - The challenge name is a clue! Save your special attack (cn_X button by default) until you get to the boss. The final breakable telephone booth contains a turkey which brings you up to full health. Leave it there in case you need it. The boss follows a very simple pattern. It will help to have a long-handled tool to beat him down from range.

Streets of Rage 3: Why Won't They Just Stand Still? - This can be a bit tricky. I spammed my special move until I whittled one of the girls down. When one of them is eliminated it takes away their tag team moves and becomes pathetically easy. I actually failed this challenge for winning with too much health left. Make sure your bar is low before you finish off this boss.

Vectorman 2: All Of Them? - I highly recommend using the video guide to ensure you pick up everything. Don't forget about the extra lives hidden later in the level.

Note: If you lose track of your progress, there is an in-game-only achievement tracker which can be viewed by navigating to the trophy in your room and selecting Achievements.
