Unlock Super Dante Mode: Are you tough enough? Beat Dante Must Die mode in order to unlock Super Dante Mode, the pinnacle of achievement in this instant classic.
Extra Red Orbs: First you choose a simple level where you get alot of orbs,(I chose Level 3 Cause of the phantom). Then after you got all the orbs press select then save your game, then reset. Play that same level over and over and each time you save and rest, you save the number of orbs, so you can buy cool stuff. It is time consuming and it's not helpful on your rank on that level but it does make the game alot easier to complete.
Beat Griffin: The first time you fight the Griffin is in the open field near the three doors that are locked, two by shield and the other with spears. To beat him just use Air Raid. It gets the job done really quick. The second time you fight him you HAVE to use Air Raid, it was the only way I could beat him. And the last time you fight him is in a open space again.
