    This is possibly the most difficult and aggravating fight of the entire game. Firstly, pull out a quicktime button sequence guide (Unknowable Moment achievement guide). This will save you some stars, and thus increase your rank.

    Fighting Kakuzu is a painful encounter. Dispose of his first form easily using jutsu and substitutions. Then he awakens into some freaky form. Continue to fight him off until a cutscene comes through and he gets enormous.

    This is where it gets fun (not). He will begin to shoot things at you.

    -Air Currents. These will come out in triplets. Simply stay out of the path and they will not hit you, you can sometimes stay still.

    -Fireballs. Start from one end of the stage. Just push your analog stick the opposite direction. Your run is faster than his shot. You should be fine. Do NOT jump.

    -Tail whip. Simply run away, it usually doesn't hit. If he tries to slide it, either keep running or jump over it. I prefer to run.

    -Underground spikes. Same as fireballs.

    -Fire and Air Beam. Here's where it gets weird. He will pause a moment before initiating this, so don't start running immediately. But you do want to run... After the beam is through, run up to Kakuzu and press "B". Then a mashing segment will commence and you'll rip him out. Beat the crap out of him until he "awakens". He will back up, and all of the above will begin to rain down upon you. Do your best to evade, and even use a Rasengan to push through if you need to. Get close, and let Kakuzu have it, but don't push him too close to the structure or else he'll go back in early.

    Rinse and repeat until the achievement pops.

    This achievement is earned from your 6th Boss Battle against Kakuzu and receiving an S Rank. (Chapter 3: The Immortal Akatsuki)

    In order to earn an S Rank during ANY battle among the game you'll need to earn points based on governed factors among the game. Health, Time remaining, and Bonus factors are among the factors that will earn this achievement.

    Bonus factors that will help you out are as follows:

    Maintained High Health
    Defeated enemy quickly
    Attacked with a combo
    Used Ninjutsu
    Used Ultimate Jutsu
    Used Team Ultimate Jutsu
    Performed Substitution Jutsu
    Performed Guard Break
    Used Awakening
    Defeated a powerful enemy
    Used support
    Used Battle item

    If you have the basic feel for the fighting style and can manage simple battles then you should do just fine. But if you fail to get an S Rank don't worry, you'll be able to re-do ANY battles once you've completed the initial Story Mode.

    P.S. QTE's (Quick-Time Events) in the game will not only work towards another achievement, but they'll also replenish health if inputted correctly.

    Upon completing the Boss Battle with an S Rank you'll earn this 20G achievement.
