I don't think the secret technique activates if it's the rolling kick pictured

Just a heads up, for all the boss achievements, you will have to let their coin actually spawn. Don't be impatient.

Rimitto
also it does arek, you have to "master" it.

Anyone else have a problem getting "Shopping Emergency!" to trigger? Does it have to be on the hardest setting?

After you beat the Dragon Twins, enter one of the classrooms on the left before heading up to the roof to fight Simon. She's being held captive in one of those rooms.

Oh, thanks! I always thought she was the girl on the roof!

I linked both the Street Gangs and the Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari roms to this profile/entry.

Why no achievement for advanced difficulty?

I normally don't like beat 'em ups but this game is so wacky and fun!

because advanced difficulty only changes the groups you fight and can be modified at any point in time in the game. There would be no logical, feasible, or reasonable reason to make or attempt to make such an achievement.

I would like to suggest a cheevo: type a password correctly. :-)

Having issues with Rocko's achievement currently. I wait for the dialogue and the coin to spawn but hasn't been working.

I noticed I had problems getting the boss achievements to pop if I was on Advanced. I switched to Novice and boom, it worked.

Boss achievements aren't working for me. Just finished the game on novice. Only got a couple boss achievements. Seems somethings wrong with it. And yes, I waited for he coin to drop and I collected it.

I just did this recently. They were working fine once I changed the difficulty. Not sure besides that how to get it working properly but it does. I think it has something to do with the spec. amount you get when you pick up the coin from the boss.

(part1) Here's how I got it working. Started out in Advanced, switched to Novice in-game (not sure this part matters). But here's where I got it working. I waited till the bosses finished their speech entirely before attacking.

(part2) After I killed them, I let the coin sit and bounce for a bit...then the achievement popped up. Then I collected the coin. Seems to work on all bosses.

JagOfTroy
Yea, that's pretty much what I did too.

Unlocked all the achievements but jujutsu master. I know in general what you're supposed to do but can't pull it off! Is my timing off or is there something I'm missing here?
