Getting to the very last boss and putting him down is a great accomplishment in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. However, completing the game in its entirety, yes we’re talking 100% completion, is a feat of its own. Here are the checklist and guide for you to nag all the Trophies/Achievements to ensure you’ve lived through the whole experience of the game.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice 100%
Achievements in Sekiro are comprised of those that are unmissable and part of the main story, and those that you’ll need to detract from the main path to collect.
It’s not going to be easy in the slightest but bear with us as we try our best to get you to that Platinum Trophy.
Acquired the Shinobi Prosthetic.
This is a part of the story as you wake up after your defeat from the Prologue boss. You’ll have this tool equipped automatically so the Trophy is unmissable.
Received the “Kusabimaru” from Kuro.
Part of the story! During the Prologue, the events take you to meet Kuro in the Moonview Tower where you’ll be granted the blade.
Returned from the dead using resurrection for the first time.
Upon your first death, which we reckon would be quite soon, you’ll be introduced to the Resurrection Mechanic. This second chance at life will be your first one and the Achievement pops up at that moment.
Encounter the Memorial Mob.
The Memorial Mob is one of the vendors/merchants that you’ll encounter in the game. Head to our Merchants Guide for instructions on the location of this NPC and the item he sells. You’ll just need to interact with him for the Trophy.
Man without Equal
Defeated all bosses.
Basically, you’ll need to eliminate all mandatory game bosses and end the game. There are also separate Achievements for the following named bosses/mini-bosses:
- Gyoubu Oniwa
- Lady Butterfly
- Genichiro Ashina
- Guardian Ape
- Great Shinobi Owl
- Corrupted Monk
- Demon of Hatred
- Great Serpent
- Great Colored Carp
- Isshin Ashina, via the “Shura” ending
- Folding Screen Monkeys
- Divine Dragon
Guardian Ape Immortality Severed
Used the Mortal Blade to sever the Guardian Ape’s undying.
In the Ashina Depths, after defeating Snake Eyes, you’ll encounter the Guardian Ape again. The fight takes place in a smaller area. While avoiding his shrieks, look for the windows of opportunity to grapple and attack it.
After the first phase is passed, as you perform the Deathblow, the Guardian Ape calls down a companion to fight alongside him.
To deal with this second ape, use the Fireworks Prosthetic to build its stagger bar and eliminate the ape quickly. Now, back to Guardian Ape, after you deliver the final Deathblow to get rid of him, continue slicing his corpse.
This will allow you to perform a third Deathblow animation that will get rid of the centipede the Ape was harboring inside. That’s all you need to do for the Trophy!
Master of the Arts
Grasped the inner mysteries of any combat style.
You need to purchase the last skill in a skill tree pertaining to any Art type. The Ashina Arts seem to be the most ideal branch for the Trophy since it’s the least amount of skills to purchase.
Peak Physical Strength
Upgraded Vitality and Posture to their limit.
As the description says, you need to maximize your vitality and posture gauge. This is done by collecting the special item, Prayer Bread. Primarily, the item is obtained as a loot drop from bosses and mini-bosses, but there are some locations where you may find these.
You can find locations and methods for all the Prayer Breads in our separate guide.
Ultimate Healing Gourd
Fully upgraded the “Healing Gourd”.
Healing Gourd is your main health regeneration consumable, like the Estus Flask or Blood Vials from the Dark Souls games and Bloodborne respectively.
In order to upgrade the capability of the consumable, you’ll need to collect a total of 9 Gourd Seeds from different locations. You can read all about these locations in our Gourd Seeds Guide.
All Ninjutsu Techniques
Acquired all Ninjutsu Techniques.
Similar to Combat Arts, the Ninjutsu Techniques can be equipped in your inventory and they allow you to perform devastating abilities. There are three such techniques and are acquired by eliminating specific foes.
Learn all about these special combat techniques including instructions on how to acquire them in our Ninjutstu Techniques Locations Guide.
Used Lapis Lazuli to upgrade any tool to its limit.
To acquire the Lapis Lazuli item, you’ll need to have made it to the Fountainhead. Head past the Great Sakura idol and then to the back of the tree nearby here. You’ll be able to make out a waterfall.
Move upstream and get rid of the wolves to make it to a Shichimen Warrior with glowing purple orbs surrounding him. You should have fought this exact same enemy before.
Use a Divine Confetti for this fight and once you’ve dealt enough damage, the warrior will teleport and start charging a large laser. Avoid it by running diagonally and then get back to fighting the foe. Eliminate him the warrior to be rewarded Lapis Lazuli as the loot drop. Now simply, use it on any item to maximize its upgrades and earn the Trophy.
Traveled to all areas of the game.
You’ll need to pay a visit to every area in the game, including the last one, Fountainhead Palace, which you can only reach by making a specific decision.
