Lone Rival Achievement
How to easily obtain the Lone Rival Achievement.
How to do the thing
Select Wrastor (The Purple Bird) and select one of the eyes (I personally always use the eye on the right but either works). Jump up to position yourself above the eye, and Spam Down + Smash. Since this is Wrastor, you can keep this up for indefinite without touching the ground. The only thing you need to be careful of are the laser attacks, and the enemies that come along. (If a dark Wrastor comes along, get off the eye IMMEDIATELY. There is a 95% chance he will span the tornado attack and nothing else.)
The easiest way to do this is to hold Down + Smash if you are waiting for an enemy to come close. Knocking the enemies into the Gatekeepers (The laser-Eyes) stuns them, and does a good portion of damage. Plus, with them stunned, they are free for combos. Once you get the hang of this, there is only one more thing to worry about.
That one other thing
When the Gatekeeprs (Eyeballs) are low on health, they will stand off to the side as the center of the stage charges into a massive blast of purple laser (This WILL kill you if you are hit.) The reason I say to use Wrastor is for this. With his ability to spam Down + Smash, he can balance off the eyeballs along the sides, and easily keep his distance from opponents. The easy way to know this is coming is that the eyes will glow red, and a massive purple glowing entity fills the floor.
(Reminder: You are Wrastor, and Air Element, You have 3 mid-air jumps, USE THEM.)
That should be all, unfortunately I could not get a clear picture of Wrastor on the eyeball (This is 30 minutes after I started writing this. It may be an easy way to get the achievement, but it isn’t easy to keep the damn bird alive!)
