Nine Lives (Bronze): Kill an enemy using the feline support character Thomas Kemper.

Steel Devils (Silver): Find and destroy all the robots in the game.
– Check the map to see if you are missing any robot parts in any location.  Once you find them all the trophy will be unlocked.

Pacifist (Bronze): Win one battle using only counterattacks.
– When you block perfectly you will perform a counterattack.  You may also use distraction items like oranges and mime traps.  Once you complete the battle without attacking, the trophy will unlock.  I would suggest doing this toward the beginning of the game.

Silent, But Deadly (Silver): Beat the final Boss without healing.
– This can be somewhat difficult.  Save up all your Hot Toddy’s, Explosive Clown Nose’s, Dynamite, and Double Mild Weak Sauce’s.  It would also be best to get all your support characters ready for the fight.  When the fight starts, use all of your explosive items on the boss; this will bring him down to about 38500 HP.  His first move is always Increase Attack, so counter that with a Double Mild Weak Sauce.  Make sure to block all incoming attacks and attempt to get as many counterattacks in as you can.  Once all explosives are gone, use normal attacks to damage him.  Do not waste time saving up your special attacks, as you will be waiting a while.  Once the pink status bar above him is gone, make sure to use another Double Mild Weak Sauce on him.  When the fight gets down to the point where only his head is left, that means he has around 24000 HP.  Continue to attack and counter attack until he is done.  The trick to this is when you are attacking, the enemy cannot attack.  So if you keep the battle flowing you should be able to get this.

Immortal (Gold): Play and win the game without allowing a character to die during combat.
– Save before every battle and complete the game without dying.  If someone dies, reload your save and try again.

Fight ‘Em With Items (Bronze): Use every combat item at least once in the game.
– Use every item in the game once.  The last item needed is found in the very last level.

Level Awesome (Bronze): Get all party members to Level 15.
– You will get this throughout the course of the game.  If you are trying for ‘Clean Sweep’ this will come easy.

Clean Sweep (Silver): Kill all enemies in Episode 1.
– The enemies are easy to spot on each panel. Just make sure you don’t skip any, and you will get this before the final boss.
