This happen because using these 2 when the creature die his life remain greater than zero in memory and most achievement on this set require the life for each creature to be zero before they trigger.

Yes, but it'll require some grinding. Just make sure to not miss any miss-able chests/items.

If you're having trouble with the Onion equipment drops, find ways to advance the RNG. Select attack then cancel, advance/retreat, cast random spells, etc. And I had the most success ending with a cast of Mini, got all 5 drops that way

For the onion gear: map the fast forward button to the controller's R2, and activate the turbo on the action button. With a strong team of 3 ninjas and a Shaman with premium weapons, fights can be finished in seconds.
