After you unlock all the weapons, you will get the option to reveal different 4 aspects for each weapon. They give bonus stats, and some have slightly different move sets.

Right away you’ll have access to 3, the base aspect, and 2 other aspects that can be purchased for Titan blood. The last aspect on each is hidden. Unlocking it comes down to performing different tasks that prompt dialogues with the right characters, who give you a phrase to unlock the aspect. These conversations are more or less random, and some need certain triggers.

The unlocks are:

-Guan Yu (spear): trigger a certain dialogue with Achilles. This conversation is random, so make sure you talk to Achilles on the west wing after every run. He’ll mention it in a conversation, and you can run into your weapon room to reveal the aspect

-Aspect of Arthur (sword): like Guan Yu, Arthur is unlocked by having enough conversations with Nyx that she mentions it. Make sure you talk to her whenever you can after a run, and eventually she’ll give Zagreus the phrase

-Aspect of Gilgamesh (fists): unlocked by running into the Minotaur miniboss in Elysium WHILE the fists are equipped. This one can be very RNG, as there’s no guarantee if you even make it to elysium that you’ll fight Asterius as the miniboss. The final boss room with Theseus doesn’t count, so keep using the fists and picking doors that have the skull icon under their reward (these indicate minibosses/challenge rooms)

-Aspect of Beowulf (shield): given to you by talking to Chaos. Throughout runs you’ll a multicolor eye panel on the floor. After clearing the room inside, you can go in the now open portal for health. Inside these you can talk to chaos. Like Achilles and Nyx, he (they?) will eventually give you the phrase to activate this aspect.

-Aspect of Lucifer (gun): given by talking to Zeus. After picking up so many of his boons during runs, he will mention the weapon and give you the phrase, much like the rest of them

-Aspect of Rama (bow): like the others, it’s given by having enough dialogues with Artemis. Eventually she will give you the phrase to unlock this for the bow
LordMakanakiYou forgot to mention a crucial piece of information - you need 5 titan blood invested in the weapon to be eligible for the hidden aspect unlock.

FrogInTheStreetFor the comment above, I just unlocked the hidden aspect for the spear having only spent 3 blood on it, so this isn't true.

Ashen SeraphThat is *only* true for the spear. The rest do.

MrZombieChickenAspect of Gilgamesh is not correct. I had the sword when I fought the Minotaur and he gave me the "God-Like King" prophecy which in turn unlocked the aspect of Gilgamesh. SO you don't have to have the fists equipped to get it.

Celes KilmerAny hints for the bow / shield? This is my last achievement, I've literally been just doing runs with Artemis keepsake to get her first, do up to 5 rooms to look for a chaos portal and talk to them, and then die, but I'm about 40 runs into doing that with neither phrase yet.

This is correct for every weapon except the spear. And, to clarify for anyone who might be confused, "investing" means upgrading, not unlocking, weapon aspects.

Aspect of Gilgamesh is not correct. I had the sword when I fought the Minotaur and he gave me the "God-Like King" prophecy which in turn unlocked the aspect of Gilgamesh. SO you don't have to have the fists equipped to get it.
It is sort of correct. I believe that you need to have previously encountered the Minotaur (without Theseus) while equipped with the fists AND have the Minotaur comment on the fists. After that, you can get the unlocking phrase from the Minotaur in a future encounter while equipped with any weapon (you still need to invest 5 titan blood beforehand).

Celes KilmerFinally got the last 2 phrases, I hadn't done 5 blood in the base weapon aspect (or any), and got them on my first encounter with Artemis and Chaos in which I was using the base aspect of the respective weapon with it maxed out. I didn't get the shield from my first visit to Chaos while wielding the bow of Rama, but swapping to shield, my next visit unlocked it for me!

CHEAP SUSHICeles, I have them all unlocked except the shield one, I cannot get Chaos to say the waking phrase. I have gone to him so many times with the aspect of Chaos on the shield, before and after completing the Night and Darkness prophecy. Just want to confirm what you are saying here because I have not tried what you are saying. Are you saying if you go to Chaos with the base shield aspect equipped and the base shield aspect maxed to level 5, you got him to give you the waking phrase?

Celes KilmerYep, that's what I'm saying caused it to unlock for me. It's possible it was a coincidence, but given how many times I had been talking to them with getting the same dialogue over and over until I did that, I think it might be required.

CHEAP SUSHIThank you for the response Celes, I just finished maxing out the base shield aspect and will try some runs with it later today, wish me luck haha

CHEAP SUSHICeles, so I went to Chaos with the maxed out base aspect and nothing happened. I then purposely failed that run and lost my 15-run streak. Next run went back to Chaos with same shield and he said the dialogue needed. Maybe it had to do with my win streak, so I would suggest doing what you said with the base shield AND making sure you don't have a win streak going? Seems odd but that is what finally unlocked the 1st dialogue for me
