    This is possible to do normally by walking up behind the enemy and hitting them in the back with your pail, but I found the easiest way is to obtain the Ninja costume, which you will get in the Autumn Haven mall, you will obtain all 3 pieces in the mall, and you will get the design from the group of ninjas on the second floor.

    Using the ninjas ability you will be completely invisible to wandering enemies, so you can walk right up to them and hit them with your pail to surprise them.

    You can only surprise enemies who are wandering about, so trick or treating will not count.

    The first opportunity to do this is in the cemetery, which is before you have the ninja costume, from that point on there should be a few enemies wandering around in each area.

    Groudon199Would it theoretically be possible to miss unlocking this achievement if you don't do this on enough enemies before defeating the final boss?

    QuarantaneI suppose so, but being you get a damage bonus for doing it I don't see why you would choose not to hit that many and miss it.

    Starting in the cemetery, enemies will be walking about. To get the jump on them, walk up behind them and press X to hit them with your candy bag. If successful, our heros will quip and the battle will start with all enemies taking some damage.

    If you do this correctly with every enemy encounter, then the 10th time will be in the mall, in the area under construction. If not, there are plenty more opportunities.

    Enemies cannot be surprised at the door, only when you can walk up behind one. Some enemies can't be snuck up on, such as ones always facing you or hiding in the shadows (there is only 1 encounter like that in the mall).
