To get this achievement you have to play arcade mode on hardest and fight and beat Gouken. The requirements for fighting Gouken are the same as they were in the original Street Fighter 4. You must not lose a round, and I suggest you use only 1 round but keep it at 99 seconds. On top of not losing a round, you have to get at LEAST:
- 1 perfect
- 3 ultra/super finishes
- 5 first attacks
Now when you actually fight Gouken you can't lose, otherwise you'll have to start all over because it just ends if you lose to him. Now, the more rounds you have it set on the higher those requirements for the amount of perfects and ultra finishes and such get, but I don't know why you'd want to torture yourself. As for what character is easiest to use... Zangief is my main and you could use your main if you're fairly good but the thing about Zangief is he's easy to use against CPU. Just spam his Lariat, i.e. either all 3 punches or all 3 kicks, the kicks are quicker but do slightly less damage. If spamming his Lariat doesn't work then sit back, wait for them to attack and then once they do, Lariat to counter it. To build up ultra meter you can either sit there and take hits or be smart and just focus attack(medium punch + medium kick) fireballs/attacks then dash out of them. Or you could do super finishes but it takes longer to build up super. His Ultra 1 is pretty easy to pull off too, just spin the stick around 2 full times and hit all three punches. Just a side note, no matter what character you're using always use the Ultra you know you're going to be able to land when trying to get this achievement. Hope this info helps, happy chievo hunting! =)

I tried following the guides above and always ended up fighting Akuma instead of Gouken. Here's what worked for me on a 1-round fight basis:

- Two perfects
- Four Ultra finishes
- Five first hits

As to the character I chose Blanka since his Electric Thunder is very effective for the least. If you have a turbo controller, just set turbo to R1 or L1 and a lot of your opponents won't even be able to come close to you (easy perfects).

Blanka has two downsides though:

- While the Electric Thunder spam works wonders against characters like Sakura, Adon, Dudley or El Fuerte (good thing since the latter is the rival), this attack is often ineffective against characters with ranged attacks, who like spamming fireballs - Ryu, Ken and Guile for instance. If you are in one those fights, try to stay as close to them as you can, block their attacks, and wait for the right moment to quickly hit with L1/R1. It is possible to use Electric Thunder at close range but very risky, since you will be vulnerable during a few tenths of seconds - more than enough for the AI to punish you on hardest difficulty.

- His Ultra Combos are not easy to use: they must be charged for a couple of seconds, and you'll probably have a hard time to land them correctly on some fast characters. I used Lightning Cannonball most of the time, but don't hesitate to use the second controller trick if you happen to miss.

This being said I didn't have too much trouble to reach Gouken with him. It may depend on which opponents the game gives you and your personal preferences, but apart from Ryu, Ken and Seth if you don't know him well, it should not be too hard (that is if you have a second controller obviously, definitely not the same thing without).

As a side note here is how I organized my fights to fulfill the requirements:

- 1st fight: Sakura. Very easy to spam her with the Electric Thunder. I got the First Hit, let her deplete my health bar until my Ultra gauge was half full, then attacked and finished her with Lightning Cannonball Ultra.

- 2nd fight: Adon, once again an easy target. First Hit (2 so far) and Perfect (1).

- 3rd fight: Chun-Li. While she is a bit more annoying than the first two, she is not too bad if you can stay close to her. Contrary to what I said above about characters with ranged attacks, Electric Thunder works farly well with her, and she is quite an easy Ultra finish (2).

- 4rd fight: Rufus. He is harder than he seems because he often breaks through Electric Thunder and has very good Ultra attacks, but he still gets often hit. I focused on getting the first hit (3), but missed my Ultra finish.

-5nd fight : Dudley. Easy first hit (4) and Ultra finish (3) using the same procedure as for the Sakura fight.

- 6th fight : Bison. First hit (5) and Ultra finish (4) after three attempts, because he always jumped at the wrong time.

-7 fight (rival) : El Fuerte. This is where you should focus on getting your second perfect, which should be easy.

Now that you have 2 perfects, 4 Ultra finishes, and probably more first hits than needed, you have two possibilities for Seth's fight: beat it without Super/Ultra, which will lead you to Gouken, or finish him with a Super/Ultra to reach Oni (if you have the Arcade Edition of the game). Since he teleports a lot and tends to attack restlessly, it is hard to land a combo on him with Blanka though. You don't need it for long Time No See anyway.

The fight may seem hard at first, but after a few attempts you'll notice that his attacks are actually very predictable. For instance he often tries to attract you near him: if he succeeds, block beauce you will very likely get hit. If there is still a distance between you and him, use Electric Thunder because he will just run on you and get hit everytime.

Basically block his fireballs, stay away from him if you can, use Electric Thunder when you know he will be helpless, and you should be fine.

As to Gouken he is really not hard either. If you use Electric Thunder his fireballs won't even hit you, just let him attack and punish him. Just prepare to block when his Ultra gauge is half full, because this attack hurts a lot if it hits. As soon as the fight ends in your favor, you will get the achievement.
