Introduction
 

Transcending history and the world, a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold.


Sharpen your swords, put on your armour and get ready to fight. SoulCalibur, the game that defined weapon-based 3D fighting games is back! Two decades after its first iteration, SoulCalibur VI returns to its roots while bringing brand-new gameplay features to the fight. Travel through the signature 16th century stages and experience the struggle for the two legendary swords using a complete roster of returning iconic SoulCalibur characters, along with some newcomers!
(Official UK site)

SoulCalibur is indeed back with a vengeance! The road to the platinum will have you experiment a bit of everything the game has to offer: two story modes (Soul Chronicle and Libra of Soul), the unavoidable Arcade battles as well as Online matches. Featuring both classical gameplay and new mechanics dressed in quite stunning visuals (even though some effects can be slightly confusing sometimes), it’s pretty much everything you could ask of a SoulCalibur game; especially considering that Bandai Namco almost binned the franchise after the two previous iterations sold poorly, this one was reluctantly greenlit and produced on minimal budget.

With so much content, it will take a decent amount of time to complete, especially if you don’t focus strictly on what matters for trophies. Luckily, some of the harder Libra of Soul missions have been nerfed down since release making the platinum relatively easy to get. So draw your blades and get ready to fight!

Controls
This trophy guide features tips and directions based on the default configuration. If you’ve customized it to fit your own style, some buttons and shortcuts will obviously be different. As a reminder, the basic default controls are as follows:

  • [A] - horizontal attack:
  • [B] - vertical attack:
  • [K] - kick:
  • [G] - guard:
  • [A]+[B] - break attack:
  • [A]+[G] - regular throw:
  • [B]+[G] - reversal edge:
  • [A]+[B]+[K] - critical edge:

On a slightly different note, make sure to check the tutorials in Drona’s Dojo at the start of your first Libra of Soul playthrough to get a grasp on each type of attack and learn some additional moves.


Walkthrough

Please note this walkthrough is only provided as a general guideline, you are free to play these steps in any order you like, you can even tackle some or all of the different game modes at the same time. There is a logic behind this sequence though. Soul Chronicle will have you play with all characters and thus allow you to decide on the one(s) you like best. Using this style for your Libra of Soul character will help you improve your skill, which will in turn be beneficial for both Arcade mode and Online matches.

About the Estimated time to Platinum, you might have noticed I have indicated quite a big time range in the Overview. This will depend on your skill of course, and somewhat on your knowledge from previous installments (people who’ve played a SoulCalibur game before will pick things up more quickly), but this huge variation is mostly due to the Libra of Soul mode. This indeed has a lot of optional stuff that isn’t required for any trophies, but that can still be nice to play to unlock extra story tidbits, artworks, payer titles, etc. So eventually, your completion time will depend on whether you focus solely on the main story and the few side quests related to trophies in that mode or if you want to experience some of the other content. Furthermore, as time goes by, online trophies will inevitably become increasingly harder to get naturally, but most of these can easily be boosted.

Step 1: Soul Chronicle

Soul Chronicle is one of the story modes in SoulCalibur VI. It is comprised of one main story and one storyline for each base game character. Finishing all of those will get you the following trophies:

  • Creating History
  • A Chosen Warrior
  • Their Names Shall Live On
  • A Transcendent Tale


Step 2: Libra of Soul

Libra of Soul is the other story mode which will have you create your own character and play various missions with them. When it comes to trophy hunting, this is where you will spend the most of your time. You will need to fulfill a lot of different objectives to get all trophies related to this mode: beating the main story, finishing side-quests, collecting and upgrading weapons... Make sure to check the guide for all the trophies listed below:

  • The Stirrings of a Soul
  • The Astral Fissures Beckon
  • The War for the World Begins
  • Entrusted with a Mission
  • Unleashing the True Sword
  • Farewell to a Bleak Winter
  • Warrior's Respite
  • The Power of Partnerships
  • Never Fight on an Empty Stomach
  • Dive into the Fray
  • No Misfortune Too Difficult
  • Interdimensional Warrior
  • Edge Master
  • True Edge Master
  • Power Hungry
  • A Swordsmith's Best Friend
  • Local Hero
  • Pioneer of Prosperity
  • The Hunters Become the Hunted
  • A Body Like Steel
  • Master of Style by a Mile
  • Globetrotter


Step 3: Arcade
Arcade mode can be found under Battle in the main menu. If you’re skilled enough you will only have to beat it once, but a few runs will probably be necessary. The guide will provide useful tips if you need help on unlocking the following trophies:

  • The First Step on the Path to Greatness
  • Keep Your Eye on the Gold
  • Glory Beckons


Step 4: Online
Tired of fighting against the AI? Fear not, SoulCalibur obviously allows you to test your skills against other players online. Fortunately, if you only care for trophies, you won’t have to spend countless hours or win hundreds of matches to earn the ones below:

  • Sharp Blade, Sharper Skills
  • All Journeys Start with a Single Step
  • No Sweeter Taste than Victory
  • The Only Way Is Up
  • A Hero Is Born
  • The Battlefield Beckons
  • An Unquenchable Thirst for Battle


Step 5: Miscellaneous and clean-up

All the trophies listed here are cumulative and can be unlocked everywhere except in Training. With the main game modes done and dusted, you should have most of these already. Simply refer to the guide if you still need to mop some up.

  • The Memories of Those Who Came Before
  • Untouchable
  • Critically Acclaimed
  • Deadly Precision
  • Making an Impact
  • May the Best Warrior Win (That Is, Me)
  • The Power Within
  • Boundary Issues
  • Breaking the Ice
  • Assault and Battery
  • Chasing Shadows
  • Bull in a China Shop

And when everything is said and done:

  • A New Story of Swords and Souls

49 trophies ( 10  36  14  )

  • You’ve mastered the SoulCalibur VI trophy list, congratulations!

  • Use a mercenary in Libra of Soul.

    Mercenaries start becoming available when you reach Yangguang in Chapter 2. You can enroll them for a fee at the Recruitment Agency there, or you can gain their service for free as a reward for quests or random fights while travelling. They are basically support for fighting missions: they go in battle first and either get rid of your opponent(s) completely or die trying before you get in the fight. Note that you can only use them once: they will leave your roster after you select them, whether they were victorious or not.

    To use a mercenary in a fight, all you have to do in press on the Mission Info screen, select one from the list, and start the match with as usual. The first time you do it will unlock this trophy.

  • Eat some food in Libra of Soul.

    Food can alter various stats while fighting or travelling. You can buy some in the four main town shops or get some as a reward for quests and random fights while travelling.

    To eat some food before a fight, all you have to do in press on the Mission Info screen, select a food item from the list, and start the match with as usual. The first time you do it will unlock this trophy.

  • Complete one secondary mission in Libra of Soul.

    Please refer to No Misfortune Too Difficult.

  • Complete 10 secondary missions in Libra of Soul.

    There are two mission types in Libra of Souls: story missions (book) and fighting missions (sword). Each type can either be related to the main story (red background) or to a side quest (green background):
     


    To unlock this trophy, as indicated in the description, you simply need to finish 10 secondary missions. There are plenty of those, you can even unlock it before the end of Chapter 2.

  • Complete the mission "Footsteps: Fortress of Illusion" in Libra of Soul.

    The Footsteps questline is related to Geralt. These story side-quests will start appearing after you meet him during Chapter 4. They become available as you progress through the main story and will never disappear.


    Footsteps: Fortress of Illusions will be available in Chapter 5 at Samsun after Kaer Morhen vanishes from the map.

     

     

     

  • Obtain 50 weapons in Libra of Soul.

    Please refer to True Edge Master.

  • Obtain 100 weapons in Libra of Soul.

    There are two ways to obtain weapons in Libra of Soul: you can buy them in all four town shops and also get some as rewards for completing certain missions. Once you have acquired 100, the trophy will unlock. Note that this is cumulative across Libra of Soul playthroughs.

    The only way to keep track of how many weapons you own is in the Weapons menu (after hitting on the map). Note that the basic ones for all styles you get at the start don’t count for this trophy, and you can only see the weapons which are currently in your possession. I can’t confirm whether using some weapons for upgrading others have any effect on this trophy, so maybe wait until you unlock True Edge Master before tackling A Swordsmith's Best Friend, if you do some side quests you will get decent enough weapons without having to upgrade them anyway.

  • Upgrade a weapon in Libra of Soul.

    Please refer to A Swordsmith's Best Friend.

  • Upgrade weapons 30 times in Libra of Soul.

    The only place you can upgrade weapons is Bolta’s Smithy in Kashgar, which you reach during Chapter 3. Note that the further you progress along the A Hammer to Metal questline, the more options you’ll have to upgrade weapons in terms of usable items and weapons.

    You can only upgrade weapons which have one or more open slots. To do so, head to Bolta’s Smithy, select the weapons you want to upgrade, chose between "Weapons" (for transferring a property from another weapon which will be destroyed in the process) or "Weapon Enhancement" (for gaining a property from a material you have in your inventory) then select the corresponding item. Do this 30 times to unlock this trophy. Note that this is cumulative across Libra of Soul playthroughs.

  • Raise the level of a town by one in Libra of Soul.

    Please refer to Pioneer of Prosperity.

  • Raise the level of four towns in Libra of Soul to their max.

    During your travels for the main quest of Libra of Soul, you will unlock various locations. Four of those are towns that can be levelled up three times:
     


    To level up a town, you will have to complete the related secondary questlines listed below (all missions take part in or around the corresponding town):

    • Dhaka: Merchants of the Wetlands
    • Yangguang: The Five Rings
    • Kashgar: A Hammer to Metal
    • Feendorf: Opening Roads

    This trophy is self-explanatory, fully level up all four towns and it’s yours!

  • Complete 30 "Astral Fissure Sealing" missions in Libra of Soul.

    Astral Fissure Sealing side missions will start appearing during Chapter 5. They are secondary battle missions easily recognized thanks to the whirlwind surrounding the green sword symbol as picture below. This is self-explanatory, but know that only these missions will count (missions either from the main story or side quests in which you will seal an astral fissure that have a different name will not).
     

  • Reach level 50 in Libra of Soul.

    Completing missions, either from the main story or secondary quests, will usually reward you with experience that comes in two forms: Player Points and Style Points. The Player Points are the ones useful to gain levels: once you have gotten enough, you will automatically level up. Getting to level 50 won’t be difficult, you will most likely be able to do it even if you focus on the main story missions. It’s not a bad thing to keep leveling up past this point though, as each level increases your health and allows you to equip better weapons, the max level being 99.

  • Defeat an Ancient in Libra of Soul.

    Completing missions, either from the main story or secondary quests, will usually reward with you with experience that comes in two forms: Player Points and Style Points. The Style Points automatically fill the "Style" bar displayed next to your character’s avatar on the map. As you may have guessed, each weapon has its own style bar (nunchakus will fill Maxi’s style, rapiers will fill Raphael’s, etc.), so you’d rather stick to one or two different styles if you don’t feel like grinding missions later on solely for this.

    Once you have completely filled the bar for one style, a side mission at the Cave of the Master Swordsman will have Edge Master inform you that you can fight ancient masters for each style, which will in turn unlock the "Ancient Master of ..." quest related to the style you have maxed. Complete this mission by defeating the tough level 72 opponent to earn this trophy!

  • Use Soul Points to unlock 10 entries in the Museum.

    You get Soul Points by completing various actions in the game (finishing Soul Chronicle storylines, beating the main story in Libra of Soul, winning matches online, etc.). You can also get more in Libra of Soul by exchanging gold via the Currency Exchange shop in Dhaka, so feel free to farm side quests for money should you need to (can also be done after finishing the main story).

    These points are used to unlock entries in the Museum and purchase content in creation mode. This trophy is self-explanatory, you will need to buy 10 Museum entries to unlock it. The cheapest ones seem to be found under Library > Historical Documents, they will only cost you 100SP a piece.

  • Turn on standby and get matched with another player while in Training mode.

    Online

    The game has a nice feature allowing it to search for an online match in the background while you’re honing your skills in Training mode. After picking characters and the arena, once the training battle starts, press and navigate to the Standby Settings screen with /. Turn Standby on, pick your style and options, then hit to get back to training. The trophy will pop as soon as the connection with an online opponent is made.

  • Complete Arcade mode for the first time.

    Self-explanatory, you will unlock this trophy upon your first completion of Arcade mode, which can be found under Battle on the main menu. There is no difficulty or time requirement for this one, but feel free to try and go for Keep Your Eye on the Gold and/or Glory Beckons right off the bat if you’re confident enough with your skill.

  • Get a gold rating in Arcade mode.

    The rating for beating Arcade mode depends on how long you take to complete all 8 stages, each one being a 3-round match against a random character. You will find the requirements below:

    • Easy: 6'00"00
    • Normal: 7'00"00
    • Hard: 8'00"00
    • Very Hard: 12'00"00
    • Legendary: 18'00"00

    If you are skilled enough, you might very well get this naturally but you’ll still need to pay attention as the requirements are quite strict (on Easy, you have an average of 15 seconds to beat each round).

    Fortunately, there are ways to cheese your way out of it. For example, picking Raphael and spamming + can be a good strategy. Inferno (unlocked by completing the main storyline in Soul Chronicle) with a combination of and + can also work wonders: I ended up beating Arcade on Legendary in less than 13 minutes, having lost two matches.

  • Online

    Please refer to No Sweeter Taste than Victory.

  • Win five ranked matches.

    Online

    Ranked Matches are one of the two types of online matches available. You will need to win 5 of those to unlock this trophy (not necessarily in one sitting). As you might guess, these are not easily boostable (searching for a match in the same region at the same moment is the only way, but you’ll have to rely on the matchmaking system to put you together with your partner). Other than being decent with a character, there’s really no tip I can give you so just keep at it! If anything, all these matches count towards An Unquenchable Thirst for Battle so even if you keep on losing, it’s not for nothing!

  • Win five casual matches.

    Online

    Casual Matches are one of the two types of online matches available. You will need to win 5 of those to earn this trophy (not necessarily in one sitting). As you might guess, you can of course play with anyone, including friends and boosting partners in private lobbies. Other than being decent with a character, there’s really no tip I can give you so just keep at it! If anything, all these matches count towards An Unquenchable Thirst for Battle so even if you keep on losing, it’s not for nothing!

  • Fight 10 matches online with a character made in Character Creation.

    Online

    Much like in Libra of Soul, you can create your own character or customize existing ones to play locally or online and share with others (note that both are separate though, unfortunately you can’t export a character from one to the other). As indicated, play 10 online matches with one of your creations to unlock this trophy!

  • Fight 30 battles online.

    Online

    Please refer to An Unquenchable Thirst for Battle.

  • Fight 50 battles online.

    Online

    Self-explanatory, you will have to play 50 online matches to get this trophy. Ranked or casual, win or lose, it doesn’t matter as long as you’re online. If you don't want to play more matches than strictly necessary, keep the following steps in mind:

     

    • Start a match thanks to the Standby feature in Training mode for Sharp Blade, Sharper Skills
    • Play at least 10 battles with a custom character for A Hero Is Born
    • Have a try at both casual and ranked matches since you have to win 5 of each for No Sweeter Taste than Victory and The Only Way Is Up respectively
  • Achieve 15 perfect victories. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    You get a Perfect victory when you win a round with your health bar full. Get 15 of those to unlock this trophy. This isn’t a big deal, but note that Ring Out has precedence over Perfect.

    You will most likely get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Perfect victories won’t count in Training (I’m not even sure you can get a Perfect in training at all anyway), but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

  • Land 20 critical edges. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    Critical Edge attacks are initiated by hitting when you have at least 1 Soul gauge charged. Simply using Critical Edge 20 times won’t be enough, the attacks have to connect, but it’s cumulative across all modes.

    You will most likely get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Critical Edges in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

  • Land 10 lethal hits. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    Each character has its own Lethal Hit moves. You can check them in the Moves section, and you’ll know you landed one when a Lethal Hit tag is displayed on your side of the screen. Do this 10 times and the trophy is yours.

    You can get this naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul, especially if you keep it mind. Lethal Hits in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

    If you need to grind it, check Assault and Battery as the required move is a Lethal Hit, then just use Raphael’s default break attack () if you need some more.

  • Land 20 guard impacts. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    Guard Impact is performed by pressing the direction you’re facing on the D-pad and the guard button at the same time, so either + or +, just as your opponent’s attack is about to land. You will know it was successful when you see a green flash and your opponent is pushed back. You will need 20 of those across all modes to unlock this trophy.

    You will most likely get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Guard Impacts in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or even boosted online.

  • Win 30 reversal edge clashes using A, B, or K. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    You trigger Reversal Edge by holding . Your character’s blade(s) will shine red and start deflecting most of your opponent’s attacks. Upon releasing , your character will try to hit the opponent. If the attack connects, both characters will take a step back and you’ll have a moment to press a button. Then, it’s like rock-paper-scissors: beats , beats , beats . Win 30 of these clashes and the trophy is yours.

    You will most likely get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Reversal Edge wins in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

  • Perform soul charge techniques 20 times. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    You go into Soul Charge by pressing the opposite direction you’re facing and , so either + or +, when you have at least 1 Soul Gauge charged. Simply going into Soul Charge 20 times won’t be enough to pop this trophy, you will have to land an attack on your opponent each time, but it’s cumulative across all modes.

    You can get this naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul (some missions in the latter have you face opponents that need to be defeated with Soul Charge attacks). Soul Charge in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

    If you need to grind it, check Chasing Shadows which requires a Soul Charge technique and Bull in a China Shop which can be earned quickly using a particular Soul Charge move as well.

  • Knock your opponent out of the ring 20 times. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    A Ring Out victory is when you win a round by, well, pushing your opponent out of the ring. Do this 20 times and the trophy is yours.

    You will most likely get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Ring Outs won’t count in Training, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

  • Stop five guard impacts or reversal edges with a break attack. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    Each character has its own Break Attack moves, the easiest one being triggered by pushing . They have the ability to stop Guard Impacts and Reversal Edges, which you will need to do 5 times to unlock this trophy.

    This one is a bit tricky as break attacks are quite slow, but you might still be lucky and get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul (note that some missions in the latter have you face opponents more prone to using Guard Impact, which you can take advantage of). Performing this in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

  • Land three lethal hits with Astaroth using "Rending Torment." (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    Rending Torment is a Lethal Hit exclusive to Astaroth. If you check the Moves section, you will find that the directions are quite confusing. Instead, follow the steps below to trigger it:

    • Enter Reversal Edge (whether you or opponent initiate it doesn’t matter)
    • Both players must first hit the same button, leading to a tie and initiating a second clash
    • Then, Astaroth needs to hit while the opponent hits

    If you mainly use Astaroth, you will probably get this naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Performing Rending Torment in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles with a second controller or even boosted online.

  • Perform "Steed of the Night" with Grøh 10 times. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    Steed of the Night is a Soul Charge move exclusive to Grøh. If you check the Moves section, you will find that this move is only available when in "Avenger stance". What I suggest is combining it with the previous move in the list (Morgan’s Deception) which puts you in that stance:

    • Activate Soul Charge
    • First hit ++ immediately followed by - Grøh will thrust his blade then dash, and ends up with one half of his weapon in each hand (Avenger stance)
    • Then, keep pushing . Steed of Night is that dash, which can be performed in quick succession one after the other.

    If you mainly use Grøh, you will probably get this naturally while playing Libra of Soul. That is, if you haven’t unlocked it during Soul Chronicle, as his storyline has a few events where you play him constantly Soul Charged, which you should take advantage of. Performing Steed of Night in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

 

Secret trophies

  • Complete the main story of Soul Chronicle.

    For this trophy, you will need to beat the main storyline of the Soul Chronicle mode. Titled The Chronicle of Souls, it’s the one located at the top of the screen with a red timeline. It features 20 events, only 13 of those being actual fights, and is quite easy to finish.

  • Complete one character's story in Soul Chronicle. (Base-game characters only.)

    Please refer to A Transcendent Tale.

  • Complete 10 characters' stories in Soul Chronicle. (Base-game characters only.)

    Please refer to A Transcendent Tale.

  • Complete 20 characters' stories in Soul Chronicle. (Base-game characters only.)

    For this trophy, you will need to beat the storylines of all 20 base-game characters in the Soul Chronicle mode. These are the blue timelines, each having a different number of events:

    • Mitsurugi: 6 events (5 fights)
    • Taki: 6 events (6 fights)
    • Kilik: 5 events (3 fights)
    • Maxi: 6 events (6 fights)
    • Xianghua: 7 events (5 fights)
    • Grøh: 9 events (8 fights)
    • Azwel: 6 events (4 fights)
    • Ivy: 7 events (4 fights)
    • Cervantes: 8 events (5 fights)
    • Seong Mi-na: 7 events (6 fights)
    • Astaroth: 6 events (5 fights)
    • Nightmare: 5 events (5 fights)
    • Siegfried: 7 events (4 fights)
    • Sophitia: 7 events (4 fights)
    • Voldo: 7 events (5 fights)
    • Yoshimitsu: 7 events (6 fights)
    • Raphael: 7 events (6 fights) - final event not needed
    • Talim: 6 events (4 fights)
    • Zasalamel: 8 events (no fights) - final event not needed
    • Geralt: 6 events (6 fights)


    They are all quite easy to beat, and each one needs to be played chronologically (completing one event unlocks the next one). Not all are available from the start though: You will need to finish Grøh’s storyline to unlock Azwel’s, Ivy’s to unlock Cervantes’ and Nightmare’s to unlock Siegfried’s. Furthermore, Raphael and Zasalamel each have an extra event unlocked by playing specific side quests in Libra of Soul, but these two aren’t needed for the trophy.

    Finally, please note that even though some DLC characters like Tira and Amy have their own storylines in this mode (with 6 events/5 fights and 10 events/4 fights respectively), they are not needed and in fact do not count at all towards the total of 20 required to unlock the trophy.

  • Complete the mission "The Astral Fissure" in Libra of Soul.

    Story-related, cannot be missed.

    This trophy will unlock after beating the Prologue of Libra of Soul.

  • Complete the mission "The Man in Black" in Libra of Soul.

    Story-related, cannot be missed.

    This trophy will unlock after beating Chapter 1 of Libra of Soul.

  • Complete the mission "On the Road" in Libra of Soul.

    Story-related, cannot be missed.

    This trophy will unlock after beating Chapter 2 of Libra of Soul.

  • Complete the mission "Death or Glory" in Libra of Soul.

    Story-related, cannot be missed.

    This trophy will unlock after beating Chapter 3 of Libra of Soul.

  • Complete the mission "The Journey's End" in Libra of Soul.

    Story-related, cannot be missed.

    This trophy will unlock after beating Chapter 4 of Libra of Soul.

  • Complete the main story of Libra of Soul with the scales tipped towards good.

    Story-related, but technically missable as you will get either this trophy or the other ending one depending on your alignment. Please refer to Warrior's Respite.

  • Complete the main story of Libra of Soul with the scales tipped towards evil.

    Story-related, but technically missable as you will get either this trophy or the other ending one depending on your alignment. They will unlock after beating Chapter 5 of Libra of Soul:

    • Farewell to a Bleak Winter - scales tipped towards good
    • Warrior's Respite - scales tipped towards evil

    This alignment depends on a few choices you make during the main quest or side missions. It won’t be tricky, the "good" choice will always be colored in blue and the "evil" one will always be in red. The alignment of weapons you might use after finding or buying them has no influence on this.

    Since one trophy is tied to each alignment, you have two options to unlock them both:

    • You can complete two full playthroughs, the second one focused solely on the main quest and alignment-specific side quests if you feel like it. You will have to create a new character starting at level 1, but have access to any weapons and food items collected in your previous playthrough, so it won’t take more than 4-5h (even less if you skip all the text) and can also be used to clean-up the grindy trophies specific to this mode like True Edge Master or Globetrotter if necessary. You might also want to pick this option if you’re a completionist as each ending unlocks specific files and artworks.
    • Alternately, you can change your alignment after beating the main story once. Since the game autosaves and only features one save slot per character, this is only possible if you are a subscriber or can transfer your save on a USB stick. Basically, you will have to back up your save right before starting the mission "Resolution". Beating it and the non-battle mission afterwards will unlock one of the trophies. Then, revert to your backed-up save so you’re just before the last fighting mission again. Instead of starting it right away, complete astral fissure sealing missions and make sure to pick the opposite alignment every time. Depending on how far towards one side you went during your first playthrough, it might take 20+ missions to alter it, but since you need 30 for The Hunters Become the Hunted anyway, it could be worth it (you will find more details about those missions under that trophy).
  • Travel a total distance equal to three trips around the Earth while exploring in Libra of Soul.

    In every location along the main story path, you can choose to "Explore Surrounding Area". This allows you to enter a sort of free roam mode and go to any quest marker available on the map. Note that you’ll need money to travel, the further you want to go the more expensive it gets, with obstacles like seas and mountain ranges adding to the bill.

    The distance travelled this way is tallied in an unfortunately hidden counter, but the trophy will unlock once you have travelled enough. I can’t confirm whether this is cumulative across Libra of Soul playthroughs as I’ve unlocked this trophy during my first without even trying.

  • Unlock Legendary difficulty in Arcade mode.

    To unlock the Legendary difficulty setting in Arcade mode (and get this trophy), you will need to beat it on Very Hard. There is no other requirement, time or otherwise, so pick your favorite character and enter the fray! You can even restart matches as many times as you want, so provided you’re decent with at least one character you should get there eventually.

  • Break all your opponent's equipment five times. (Must be outside of Training mode.)

    If you deal enough damage or use the right moves, you can destroy your opponent’s equipment (well, except for Geralt and 2B whose gear can't be destroyed). Equipment is usually comprised of 3 different parts: upper body, waist/legs and feet. Destroy all of those 5 times and the trophy is yours!

    Depending on the character you’re using, you might get it naturally while playing Soul Chronicle or Libra of Soul. Stripping your opponent in Training won’t count, but the requirement can easily be achieved in battles against a low level AI or with a second controller, or even boosted online.

    If you need to grind it, Raphael has an easy move that automatically removes all his opponent’s equipment. Start by building your soul gauge with Reversal Edges (). Once you have filled one gauge, go into Soul Charge with +. Then, keep spamming and the finishing thrust will do the job. Win the match, then rinse and repeat as many times as needed.
