Essentially the idea is to beat each stage in less than 30 seconds (2 minutes 30 seconds total). If you can manage to take out the first 2 stages in under 30 seconds together, all the better since they get a lot harder at stage 3.

Advice:
-First, set match point to 1.
-Trap them in a corner and don't let them move.
-Avoid using characters that use long show-off type moves.
-Use your best character (may conflict with 3rd point)
-If you lose, restart. There is no room for error, unlike Bronze and Silver.
-Final comment: get lucky as hell. The best level is the small dance floor one. If you keep hitting them so that you go in a circle around it (hit, bounce off wall for damage, stand up and hit again...etc), it makes for a quick and easy win most of the time.
Agonys I got 28 on the first stage so I was starting to think that "hey maybe I should restart" but the next 2 ended up at 19 and the last 2 with 24 so dont lose all hope even though you dont get a dream time on the first stage :)

KMetalmind Personally, it´s easier with Kasumi + Spartan combo. Pick Kasumi first and Spartan next, and start always with a grab. You´ll grab nearly all times in stages 1 to 3, and 50% of the times on 4 and 5. Next, you can spam Spartan moves. Yeah, she´s slow, but she doesn´t get countered too much if you spam Y & B up, middle and down. If you are being beaten, try to do another grab, so if it´s succesful, she´ll start regenerating. If you get your Spartan beaten, then it´s the time for a cheap Kasumi combo. Just press right+B and then Y. You will do a circle kick and then push your opponent forwards. Again, this isn´t countered too much and most of the times you will end up throwing opponents against the walls.

I got 4 times to last stage with an entire minute left on the clock, just spamming this tactic. I lost 3 times on that one, though, as they are really cheap on there and they counter nearly all. Anyway, you should get the achievement even being a bad player in aroud 1-2 hours doing this until you get lucky.

Neptune Diamond Thanks, KMetalMind. Your tip helped me beat it after one hour. For anyone going for this achievement, just keep beating them into those walls and hope for the best. It's important to remember that this is mostly about luck, so just keep trying until you get it. Sometimes the AI counters every move, sometimes they counter just a few. It's all about luck.

Also if you see Bass at the opposite team, just restart. That cunt will counter your every move and waste five seconds of your time swinging you around pretending to be Thomas the train yelling "CHOO CHOO CHOO"

Ross Wyatt The biggest bitch I've found is Ayane. Her stupid backwards spin kick just fucks me over. If I could just spam tag throws I'd be golden, but no, they have to be able to somehow hit me before a throw connects. This besides the first one is the worst DOA of the series.
