    As the other solution states, this game is glitchy, and this achievement may not pop upon completion. From researching this in depth, this seems to be a unique problem tied to just the Xbox One version of this title, but no version is free from glitches honestly. This is what I did to try and circumvent it glitching and it seems to work. Thanks to Fireal20 in the comments of the other solution for the foundation of this!

    To be on the safe side, when the game tells you to "Return to Ice Kingdom" to confront the Ice King to get more info, that's technically a point of no return. Make sure before you head there that every side quest has been completed as heading there locks you into the final boss with Gumbald unless you dashboard. Failing to do so may bork some of the side quests, mainly the one involving the seven pirate ships. Before fighting Gumbald I was only missing:

    Sweet Victory (beating Gumbald)
    The achievement for pulling the plug
    The four achievements tied to leveling the crew to 10
    The "Platinum Trophy" achievement for having every other achievement.

    After fighting Gumbald I went directly to pull the plug and did so, skipped the credits, reloaded my save, and went to grind on enemies in the Fire Kingdom. The game explains pulling the plug as ending the game as it will drain the water, it does not. The game will reload in a completed state with the water back to explore. A lot of users here who have saved that achievement for last had the completion one glitch on them.

    I didn't run from a single fight in the campaign and went after most chests guarded by enemies and after Gumbald only BMO was level 9. The grind for everyone in the fire Kingdom took me an extra half hour after pulling the plug, and I tried to pace the bonuses in a way that wouldn't pop two leveling achievements in the same fight. This one popped before I got the Hero Finn achievement.

    Do everything side quest related and miscellaneous achievements (Lighting the fires, finding the snail etc) before returning to see the Ice King.
    Fight Gumbald there.
    Go directly to pull the plug after.
    Skip credits, continue back into the world, head to Fire Kingdom to grind for XP to become level 10 with everyone.

    In this order, your chances of it unlocking seem to be higher than by pulling the plug last. Good luck and let me know if this worked for you. At the time of posting a patch is APPARENTLY still in the works, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    UPDATE: This is not a be all end all guide, moreso how I managed to get the achievement to pop. Your mileage may vary!

    Milzy26Literally the only achievement I didn't get for this game... even though I technically did. I guess I was hit by the glitch. Is there anyway to get it without doing the entire game over again? I enjoyed the game, but I reallyyyyyyyy do not want to play the whole thing over for this last stupid achievement...

    MorgurtTheRoundI just got this today (11/27/20) without issue.

    BMO leveled up to 10 at the end of my fight with Uncle Gumbald. After I 'pulled the plug' and the credits rolled, I continued on and leveled Marceline to 10. Following that, I had Finn and Jake both level up to 10 in the same fight (despite my best efforts). "Pirates of the Enchiridion" popped between the two of those. So oddly, "Hero Jake" was technically the last achievement I earned.

    With the April 12 2019 update, this achievement has been fixed. You may play the game normally and only worry about pulling the plug last. The order of the other achievements doesn't matter anymore.

    If you have finished the game already, try applying the patch and loading up the main menu. I saw several reports of people getting the achievement that way.

    BarrwgIf you're playing through normally, just note it'll unlock with pull the plug. I hadn't actually gotten the Bad Cop achievement and this still popped when completing the game.

    ROSE BRIARI didn't pop this one with Pull the plug, but I just quit the game, reload it back up and hit continue. I popped it before it had even loaded the environment.

    Hi guys, I went for all the achievements of this game and, of course, the last one (Pirates of the Enchiridion) didn't pop up.

    I was able to fix it and the solution was quite simple. So, I'm writing it here to try to help someone facing the same problem:

    1) I've closed the game (from x1 dashboard)
    2) Logged out my account
    3) Logged in my account again
    4) Opened the game
    5) Chose the option continue (to load the game with all other achievements)
    6) After loaded my game the achievement popped up!

    Hope these steps can help someone.
