    Dark Souls 2- Curved Twinblade. Achieve 500 more kills than deaths while a part of the Blood covenant in Dark Souls 2, and do it using only melee and spells. No poison, bleeding, or anything else.

    As a bit of a thinking outside the box experiment, I learned a while back that Tubular is actually SLIGHTLY easier to beat using the blue Yoshi, since he is a LOT easier to navigate with than P-Balloon Mario himself is. Catches being, you only get ONE chance to snag a Koopa shell, after which you had best RLH (FLH?) through the level while still managing to avoid getting hit. Not like you have much a window to make it to the end though, since even if you manage to time it just right, by the time you reach the exit Yoshi will be just swallowing the shell. It's still SOMEWHAT easier than the P-Balloon method, but yea...F*#K Tubular -.-

    I got the Fierce Deity's Mask. What a pain in the ass but totally worth it. So much killing.

    Now that Darks Souls 2 is out, you guys should add to this list the two rings you get for never dying and never using a bonfire.

    I never attempted it but I remember hearing getting Knights of the Round in Final Fantasy 7 took a long time

    It did, it involved breeding a gold Chocobo to get to an inaccessible island to get the summon materia. I did that one back in the day too, the worst part was breeding the Chocobo.

    What about unlocking Katze, the only one with a gun, in Bushido Blade for PS1? 100 kills without getting hit!
  • Elitepwnsface - September 3, 2013 3:03 p.m.

    Final Fantasy 9. You had to get to a specific point in disc 4 in 12 hours to get Steiners Ultima Weapon. Im possibru without a gameshark.
  • lon3wolf2002 - September 3, 2013 2:20 p.m.

    I got the Super Mario and the RE Tofu ones back in the day, I can't be doing with that stuff nowadays (getting too old).

    I'm gonna throw up FFX dodging 200 bolts of lighting for Lulu's ultimate weapon because it's frustrating and i don't have the time, nor the patience to do it. Eventually you start to go crazy: Did I dodge 133 or 132 bolts? Why are my hands sweaty? Can I really depend on my reaction time? How many times have a listened to this damn song? Will I break my PS2 if I get hit at the 200th bolt? It's not "impossible" in itself, but combined with doubt and pressure it is definitely challenging

    You captured the thought process on that one perfectly; it really was a test of patience and will. I think I dodged it about 50 times more than I had to just to make sure I didn't go crazy and skip numbers. I would have lost my shit if I thought I completed it and only dodged 190 or so. I'd say most of the ultimate weapons in FFX fall into the category. Wakka's can be very easy or a great test of patience as well, as youll get his sigil after winning a blitzball tournament that may or may not have it as a prize. I think I had to win about 125 blitzball games before finally getting it. Looking back on it, it's kinda crazy to me that I put the time and effort into getting everyone's ultimate weapon.

    Great to see some love for Vandal Hearts. Loved the first one. Second one was meh. Thrid one was uh? Some of theses weren't that hard. I got the FOAM FINGER in DS2 (you just have to know when to save), the Vandalier in VH when I was in elementary, and DK in Punch Out is kind of a given.
  • CitizenWolfie - September 3, 2013 6:59 a.m.

    Ah, Super Mario World. The first game I ever 100%'d. I remember finally completing the special world and blowing my young mind seeing the entire game world change. You didn't mention the secret level that unlocks once you find every Yoshi coin as well - it only contains item boxes but it's cool nevertheless.
  • Makie8d - September 3, 2013 11:16 a.m.

    I remember this as a kid as well. Good memories!
  • rxb - September 3, 2013 5:08 a.m.

    Some of the Unlocks are very cool but extremely difficult to get. Some require crazy skills and way too much grinding.
  • almostnot - September 3, 2013 2:44 a.m.

    Awesome article! Also, any time where Vandal Hearts gets some love is sa-weet! The shame about the vandalier class is that you only get to use it for about 3 battles after you unlock it and finding the secret keys is tough, even with a guide! Clocked in both the Mario World and the Vandal Hearts unlockables from this list. Feel oddly proud now.

    That last slide brings back fun memories of playing Red Faction: Guerilla's online multiplayer. Completely destructible environments! It was so amazing! Having that damn ostrich melee weapon would have been cool, but MAN would you have had to play the HELL out of the (soon-to-be-made-defunct-by-CoD-or-Battlefield) online mode. I remember being pro at trolling people with demolition tactics. The backpack thing was cool, too.

    Fun list. I loved fighting DK in Punch-Out!! Wii, and the foam finger in DS2 was a blast... no pun intended... actually, pun greatly intended. On a side note, Metal Gear Solid 4's Big Boss camo NEEDS TO BE ON THIS LIST. It was literally nearly impossible to get and the coolest camo ever. You make enemies drop all their gear and run away screaming when they see you. Too cool.
