Interestingly, nothing from doing GT Code any% counts towards the achievements. I'd only collected the bare minimum (plus screw attack) to do GT code, received no achievements, no achievements for beating the game either.

GT code gifts you items and health, I imagine that's considered cheating thus, disables achievements entirely.

Mastered. One if not the best set I played achievements. Nothing overwhelming, only 52 that makes you complete the game, enjoy sequence break, learning how to get a good clear time, only challenge and fun. Nothing is boring or grind.
