4) Get hit by a Yazuka Takami’s bullet
Once the boss-fight starts, you will have 45 seconds to defeat it before the Yazuka spawn. Wait until they spawn, then a new countdown will start. Wait until this one runs out of time too! Now, they will shoot bullets upon being killed. Get killed by one of those bullets, for the trophy to pop.

2) Save a total of 6 lives for 6 mil points (put stock lives on 4)
3) capture as many mid-bosses as possible (200.000 per capture)

4) Have Yazuka Takami’s spawn

The preferred path is as followed:
A -> B -> C -> E -> G -> J -> M

While doing so, keep the following things in mind:
