Q: How do I unlock Valentine's and Double's Storyline?
To unlock Valentine's Story, you must complete everyone else's Story first. To unlock Double's, you must complete Valentine's Story.
Q: How do I unlock stages?
They unlock as you play through Story mode. The "Class Notes" stage is unlocked upon finishing all tutorial lessons.
NOTE: Trophies that require you to do certain moves a certain amount of times can't be done in training mode. I've tried.
- Threads of Fate: Finish Story Mode with all characters on any difficulty.
- Sküllgirls: Simply finish Tutorial Mode.
- Prolix: Do combos consisting of different amounts of hits and get different combo titles such as "Cute", "Poetic", and "Swell".
- An Ensemble Cast: You must play 10 matches using a team of 3 members and use a custom Ensemble assist for each of them, play 10 matches using a team of 2 members using a custom Ensemble assist for each of them, and play 10 matches using a character individually.

- My Pain Shall Be Visited Upon You: Use Painwheel's super armor moves while being attacked a certain amount of times.
- Medical Board Will Be Notified: I read that to get this one, you must do Valentine's level 5 super a certain amount of times. (Was alluded to in one of the tutorials that it may be 40 times.)

Achievement Tips and Tricks
- Most of the character related achievements can easily be gotten with the help of a friend (or a second keyboard) who is willing to do nothing while you work towards the goal. Also note that they can be gotten through story or arcade mode.
- For "Happy Birthday", find a friend who is willing to be a punching bag, lower both of his characters HP as low as you can, have him call for an assist and then hit them.
- This video shows an easier way to get the "Toil and Trouble" achievement. Remember that you need to perform it more than once, and that Training mode doesn't count towards earning achievements.
