How to Defeat Bosses
At the end of every chapter in Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia there is a boss you need to defeat in order to progress to the next chapter. As this gme is designed for kids you will not find this difficult, all you need to do is use your range attack in combination with some melee hits. Don't use your special abilities as they will not be any use during a boss fight. If for die your health counter will not be reset, you will just lose a life and continue fighting. When you have defeated every boss in the game you will earn the Trollhunter's Return trophy/achievement.
The easiest way to farm money in Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia is to play the Go-Go Sushi mini-game which becomes available when you talk to Tobias and AAARRRGGHH!!! In the city (Heartstone Trollmarket). The objective of the Go-Go Sushi mini-game is to:
- Collect sushi in a basket. - Avoid vegetables. - If you collect 5 or 10 sushis, you can serve them up for tips. - If you go over 10 sushis, you drop some.
As you progress ingame, more sushi levels will become unlocked, enabling you to earn more coins. Completing a game of Go-Go Sushi will earn you the Serving Up Sushi trophy/Achievement.
You will be able to unlock side quests in Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia in the city by talking to NPC's.

There are plenty of side quests available and completing three of them will earn you the Quest Bester trophy/achievement.

In Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia there will be instances where you will need to squeeze through tight gaps. The first time you reach a small gap you need to get through the game tells you to 'slide' but does not tell you how to perform the action. It is however simple to do, all you need to do is push the analogue stick on your controller down while at the same time pressing the 'Jump' button (X on PlayStation 4 and A on the Xbox One). When you do this the character you chose will slide across the floor allowing them to get through tight gaps. You will find that you will need to perform the slide action regularly during levels in order to reach hidden areas to pick up collectibles.
