    For this method you will need 2 controllers.

    Go into Battle, then select Versus. Change the settings to player vs player, 5 rounds, and infinite time. This will give you plenty of tries with minimal loading.

    Select Astaroth with your profile. the other character doesn't matter.

    Once the round starts, hit cn_RB with your controller, then mash cn_Y on both controllers. The first clash will end in a draw, but the second clash will result in the "Rending Torment" move.

    Repeat 3 times and the achievement will unlock.

    Edit: Reverend M3TA suggests not quitting out due to the glitchy "Get All Achievements" Achievement. So instead of quitting out, complete the match.

    Reverend M3TARecommend you do NOT quit out after it pops, as this may keep the game's internal list from ticking off and thus your "get all achievements" achievement may glitch. Finish the match, let it auto save.

    No need for two controllers.

    Load up Soul Chronicles and select Asteroth's first chapter. You fight two lizardmen for one round each.

    Get close to the opponent and hit RB, there will be a flash of red, both fighters will rush at each other, don't press anything and they will clash, but not take damage. Then they will rush at each other a second time, mash Y, Asteroth will do an overhead swing. If it connects, then that's Rending Torment. You need to get it to connect three times.

    Sometimes they will dodge, but I did it about 10 times over those two rounds and it connected three of those times.

    Make sure you finish the chapter and it autosaves.

    Select 'Battle' then 'Versus' with the following settings:

    Player: Player vs CPU
    Round Count: 5
    Battle Time: Infinite
    CPU Difficulty: Easy
    Battle Mode: Standard
    Pause Menu: Standard

    Select Astaroth as your character and anybody as the opponent. In the match perform Reversal Edges (Press Y+A) which will cause the game to go into a slow motion effect. During the first clash do not press any attack button but during the second clash press Y and if it lands it will be the 'Rending Torment' move. You will know if you are successful when 'Lethal Hit' and/or 'Break Attack' appears under your characters name.

    This can also be done against a second controller but on Easy this is still very simple to complete.
