A. Introduction

Welcome to my achievement guide for The King of Fighters XII.
The purpose of this little document is to help you get all the
achievements quickest way possible. Sad to say, for this game
there is no easy way, especially the online achievements. But
the game is fun to play so you really should play it online.

This guide is broken into fours parts: offline achievements,
online achievements, secret online achievements, and secret
offline achievements.

===============================================================

C. Offline Achievements

1. Striker 10 - Execute a counter-attack at least 10 times in
Versus Mode or Online Mode. 
Easy to do in versus mode against the CPU. Just keep mashing
the heavy punch button while you are close to your opponent.
You will know when you scored a counter attack when your
opponent flashes white and make a 360 degree turn. You can
probably score 6-8 of these per match if you are using a quick
character. If you are using a slow character then you would get
less per match. I would not recommend you trying to get this
online since going up against a real person and keep mashing
heavy punch would likely get you killed.

2. Sniper 20 - Execute a counter-attack at least 30 times in
Versus Mode or Online Mode. 
See Striker.

3. Razor Edge 30 - Execute a counter-attack at least 50 times
in Versus Mode or Online Mode. 
See Striker.

4. Bull Fighter 15 - Inflict critical counter-attack damage at
least 10 times in Versus Mode or Online Mode.
This is another achievement you can get online or offline but I
would recommend offline since I do not want you to lose when you
are preoccupied by trying to inflict one of these. Basically go
into versus mode and pick a fast character. Keep fighting until
that green bar under your health fully fills up. Now go up close
to your opponent and mash heavy punch until you get a loud bang
and freeze screen. When that happens, donít stop attacking and
you shall score an awesome combo. Do this 10 times and the
achievement is yours.

5. Slow Starter 10 - Try to clear Arcade Mode within 10 minutes. 
Really easy to do. You can pick anybody. But if you are having
trouble, pick Duo Lon. Jump towards you opponent and keep
mashing heavy punch. You should get a 4-5 hit combo. This
move alone with get you this achievement.

6. Speedster 20 - Try to clear Arcade Mode within 8 minutes. 
See Slow Starter.

7. Cannonball 30 - Try to clear Arcade Mode within 6 minutes.
If you are having trouble with this one, you need to use the
tactics in Slow Starter, and you need to pull off Duo Lonís
super everytime it fills. Input 2x quarter circle forward +
heavy punch. That will allow you to kill you opponent quicker.

8. Lightning 40 - Try to clear Arcade Mode within 4 minutes. 
Not easy to do. All I can see is practice, practice, practice.
Or you can go on YouTube to try to emulate one of the videos.

9. Speed King 50 - Try to clear Arcade Mode in under 3 minutes
and 30 seconds.
See. Lightning.
