Welcome to Penny Arcade Adventures – Episode 1, the first in what was supposed to be a four-part series, but never made it past two. It is based on the webcomic by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, one of the most popular and longest running currently online, having been launched in 1998.
Since the best way to 100% this game is to do everything in a single playthrough, the steps in this roadmap outline the important things you must do at each stage of the game. If you miss anything, you'll have to do another playthrough. It's an okay game, but personally I think once is enough, so I suggest doing it right the first time.
The Immortal trophy is awarded for completing the game without dying. So after each battle you win in which none of your characters die, save your game. If any of your characters die in a battle, quit and reload your save and try the battle again.
At the very beginning of the game you will be in a tutorial level. Early on you will get the cat support character (Thomas Kemper, which gives you the Stray Cat trophy). After that you will have a few battles. In these battles you cannot die – you will automatically be healed (since it's a tutorial). Thus, they are perfect for getting Nine Lives and Pacifist.
For Nine Lives, use Thomas Kemper's 1 HP attack over and over again until he kills an enemy. It may take up to 10 minutes so just be patient. For Pacifist, win a battle using only counterattacks.
At this point just play through the game as normal, and make sure to do the following:
Collect all Concept Art and Music Records
This will net you four trophies over the course of the game. See the trophy guide for info on collectibles. For enemies and bolts, make sure you look EVERYWHERE – some are tricky to find and are inside objects like boxes and trash cans.
Remember to save after every successful non-death battle!
Before you fight the final boss, make sure you have completed everything in Step 3. This is the point of no return, so don't continue until you are sure. Before fighting the boss you should have all the trophies except for:
If you beat the final boss without healing or dying, you will get all five at once. If you're trying to do that, quit and reload your save if any of your characters happen to die. Doing both at the same time is possible – you just need to be able to block well.

Also Antegia made a good guide for Silent, But Deadly: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/penny-arcade-adventures-episode-1/7019-silent-but-deadly-trophy-guide.html
If you want to beat the final boss without healing, then do it a second time without dying, you will need to make a copy of your save to an external HDD/USB Flash. Once you beat the game, you normal save file will be overwritten and you cannot reload to just before the boss to try it again. So you'll need an external copy that you can copy back.

[PS3T Would Like to Thank Vyrastas for this Road Map]
|Earn a support character.|
This is a story based trophy. You will get this at the start of the game.
|All Together Now|
|Do a Team-Up attack involving all three party members.|
A tutorial will prompt you to do this. Just wait for all three characters bars to fill up for the triple attack and use it.
|A Winner Is You|
|Successfully complete the first episode.|
Beat the game. The whole game is the first episode.
|Kill an enemy using the feline support character Thomas Kemper.|
Get an enemy down to 1hp then use Thomas Kempers attack.
|Find and collect all of the hidden collectibles scattered around the game.|
|Find and destroy all the robots in the game.|
To check to see if you have missed any robots, check the map to see if you are missing any weapon parts from any of the levels/zones. Once you have got all weapon parts from each level/zone you will unlock this trophy.
|Win one battle using only counterattacks.|
Do not use any attacking moves during a battle. Just keep blocking the attacks. If you time the block perfectly you will perform a counterattack.
|Silent, But Deadly|
|Beat the final Boss without healing.|
Make sure you block as many of the attacks as you can to reduce the amount of damage you take during the fight.
The real trick to this strategy is to try and keep the battle flowing as much as possible. If you're attacking him, he can't attack you! (The same applies to all enemies in the game.) So try to join the Support attacks with your Normal ones to minimise his opportunities.
|Play and win the game without allowing a character to die during combat.|
This trophy is easier than it sounds because you can save before every battle. If one of your characters dies during combat, just reload your save game and try again.
|Fight 'Em With Items|
|Use every combat item at least once in the game.|
Use all the combat items in the game (The second row, going from left to right).
|Get all party members to Level 15.|
Get all three characters to level 15. You will get this during the course of the game and while trying to get "Clean Sweep."
|Kill all enemies in Episode 1.|
The enemies are easy to spot in the panels; just make sure you don't skip any fights and you kill all of them.
