No Spoilers!

During normal story progression, Nier reenters the Lost Shrine at the beginning of the end game. After answering a series of riddles and continuing on, Nier is forced into a boss battle with a pair of bosses. If the bosses are defeated within two and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

The fight occurs in two phases. The challenge is that the bosses are able to teleport so they must be hit quickly and hard. Melee attacks and/or Dark Hand magic attacks are effective. After a while a cut scene ensues and the bosses acquire much more powerful attacks--attacks corresponding to the ones you have. The same tactics employed in the first half of the fight are still effective but Nier needs to be more mindful of the bosses' increased lethality. Nier wins the battle when the bosses' health is nearly depleted. If this occurs within two and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

As with similar timed fights, make sure you skip the cut scenes. Accordingly, you might want to fight the boss pair twice--once viewing the cut scenes and the second skipping them reverting to a save that you made just before the fight. Also, this fight recurs for each walkthrough--working towards the A, B, C, and D endings. Nier will be progressively stronger during each walkthrough until he reaches max strength. So, depending on how fast you have been leveling up--a personal choice--you may want to defer getting this achievement for a later playthrough when Nier is at a level where he can more quickly defeat this pair. On the other hand, if you have leveled up Nier rapidly, the achievement can readily be obtained in a first playthrough.
