I didn't even know you could defeat Giygas without praying, and Master Belch without the fly honey. (I thought Master Belch's health was fixed until the fly honey is used. At least, I've read something like that before.)

Anyway, I have a few suggestions, myself.

Loaded to the Teeth
Jeff has 10 Multi Bottle Rockets in his inventory

Who Cares
Use a "Don't Care" name

Fourth Wall
The player defeats Giygas (That one would actually be the generic "defeat the last boss" achievement.)

Time to End This
Win a battle after suffering mortal damage, before your health rolls down to 0 (That wording needs improvement, I know.)

Rare Encounter
Defeat a Master Criminal Worm (That's the enemy that gives the most experience in the game, but is an extremely rare encounter, around Scaraba)

Yes, with a little research I see that Giygas never dies unless you pray (but it turns out it is possible in Mother 1+2).
However you apparently can defeat Master Belch without the Fly Honey.
Anyway, I was just throwing out some ideas.
I like your ideas, especially Master Criminal Worm.

Onett is finished. Achievements for the most part are going to be simpler than what I've been doing lately, but I do have a few tricky achievements in mind for later.

Hey guys, getting near to completion. Sorry about my hiatus--Had a new baby and a semester of college to deal with at once. Up to the Lost Underworld now and doing Horn of Life achievements. Once completed, I'll look into fixing what's broken.

You can definitely defeat belch without the fly honey... when i was grinding for the Sword of Kings in the same area, I dominated him afterwords since i was overpowered from the grinding.

And go easy on the "add a [Condiment] with a [Food]" achievements... they didnt register for me.

Wait, how did you manage to fight Master Belch after getting the Sword of Kings in Stonehenge Base? Did you glitch through walls or- (such as the Skip Sandwich walk through walls trick)? We've otherwise determined it's possible with PSI Flash 2.

No glitching ... cant remember. Don't you fight Fobbies and starmen before Master Belch ?
I might be thinking of another boss... I've beaten the game like 5 times and there's always something new for me.

Also, Fuzzy Pickles! Fuzzy Pickles! (25) Camera-shy Camera-shy (20)
We have to play through the game twice ?

There's a second encounter with Master Belch, and he is in the Deep Darkness. He doesn't require Fly Honey so I bet that's it. We have done more experimentation on Master Belch in the base, and it turns out both the Pray method and PSI Flash beta works, so the achievement now supports both of these methods.

You don't have to play through the game twice for the camera pics, because every picture can be obtained after you clear the game during the ending. So basically if you grab Camera-shy, clear the final boss, you can go get the rest of the pics, too!

But I'll have a go at it :)
