How To Platinum The Cruel King And The Great Hero

The Cruel King and the Great Hero is here, and it's not only a charming game in its own right — but it's also aces for those among us who are seeking out relatively easy platinum trophies. With 33 trophies total, this Nippon Ichi RPG is already on the lighter side of the scale, but aside from a few tricky twists, everything is relatively straightforward.

That doesn't mean you won't want to maximize your time. Even a game like The Cruel King and the Great Hero can eat up one's weekends as one attempts to solve those nagging final trophy mysteries. Our guide will not only point Yuu in the right direction — terrible pun, we know — but it will give you everything you'll need to platinum your game.

Bronze Trophies

Trophy Acquisition
Training Day Automatically unlocks early in the story.
My New Partner Automatically unlocks early in the story.
Snow, Pink, and a Fountain Automatically unlocks early in the story.
WANTED: Cybat Automatically unlocks early in the story.
The Princess' Trial Automatically unlocks in the middle of the story.
My First Act of Kindness Awarded for completing the first Act of Kindness sidequest.
Good Night, Nathan Awarded for completing the Act of Kindness titled 'The Gourmand's Dream'.

The Three Lady Sisters Awarded for completing the Act of Kindness titled 'Hunt for Hunee'.
Three's Company Awarded for completing the Act of Kindness titled 'Magic Book'.
Scent of Nostalgia Awarded for completing the Act of Kindness 'Forget-Me-Not'.
Friends Forever! Win 100 battles with Rocky as your partner. Won't take long!
Old Enemies Win 100 battles with Cybat as your partner. Naturally, this will take just a tad longer.
Mutually Beneficial Win 100 battles with Flora as your partner. Flora's abilities are too good. You'll want to use her, regardless, so this won't be so bad.
Item Master Use items 100 times. (Frankly, you'll probably get this one earlier than all the rest.)

Silver Trophies

Trophy Acquisition
Dad… Automatically unlocked late in the story.
My Wish Automatically unlocked late in the story.
Tea Time Awarded for completing the Act of Kindness titled 'The Madam's Tea Party'.
To the Heavens Awarded for completing the Act of Kindness titled 'Star Festival Maiden'. Take note, this one's a bit on the harder side.
Yuu's Bravery Reach level 50 with Yuu. Like all the rest of these, it's simply a grind, but with the random encounter rate of this game, it won't take terribly long. It's also the easiest since Yuu is always in the party.
Rocky, the Ice Fox Reach level 50 with Rocky. Also fairly easy, given how early he joins.
Cybat, the Tricker Reach level 50 with Cybat.
Flora, the Flower Princess Reach level 50 with Flora. Though it's technically the most difficult as Flora is the last partner, her considerable capabilities will make the grind smoother than it could have been.
Special Skills Master Use Special Skills 100 times. Shouldn't take long.
Goodbye Allow 20 monsters to escape. Do this with the easy ones who award less experience when possible.
Loyal Customer Spend 20,000 Shells when shopping. Honestly, it will pop faster than you might think.

Gold Trophies

Trophy Acquisition
Staying Together Automatically unlocked at the conclusion of the story.
Great Hero Complete all Acts of Kindness. Basically, handle every sidequest in the game. As NPCs are always easy to find (the 2D nature of the graphics really helps and the maps are quite linear to boot) what this boils down to is simply setting aside the time to tackle them all.
Moonstruck Awarded for looking at the moon with the Dragon King. We'll update this one soon with extra information.
Merciful Hero Allow one monster of every type to escape. Yes, this means individual monsters rather than "families." Consult your Monsterdex, mentally check-marking each time you've done this. It's a pain, but the bestiary really helps.
Forest Collector Awarded for unlocking every Collection. Very straightforward.

Platinum Trophy

This won't come as a surprise to anyone who's fairly familiar with trophies, but to obtain 'The Legendary Hero' platinum, you must acquire every other trophy in the game. Since the bulk of them are almost hard to miss, you'll be in good hands just by adventuring.

Leveling Flora to 50, allowing one of every type of monster to escape, and completing the events of 'Star Festival Maiden' are probably the biggest slogs to be found, but ultimately it appears that Nippon Ichi sided with time sinks over genuinely challenging material. Hopefully, that suits you just fine — you will be spending plenty of hours battling around the realm, regardless!
