You will need to lick the switch in the following combination:

(The jukebox can be used when you give Ollie all the music sheets. He will give you a coin which can be put into the jukebox. This makes all music within Monster Boy available to listen.)


  The Savior Of Monster World
Defeat Xaros and save the kingdom from darkness.

Xaros is the evil end-boss of monster boy. This trophy is related to the story and cannot be missed.

Defeating Xaros:

Stage 1:
Hit each orb with the corresponding hero.
Example: Hit the lion orb with the lion

After doing this for all the orbs, you will be put into a cage. Your friends will come to free you and your health will be replenished.

Stage 2(Dragon):
Hit Xaros with your stream of fire until his health-bar is all yellow.
Staying up close, a little underneath him is the best way to go for this.

Stage 3(Lion):
Hit the bouncing ball with triangle. Only hit it when the spikes are gone. Doing this will speed up the ball until you bring down its HP bar.

Stage 4(Frog):
Four Xaros will spawn, one will be real. The one that does NOT fire any projectiles is the one you will need to attack. Use the frog’s tongue to lick the orb. After licking it you will be able to hit it with your sword. Do this three times and you will succeed.

Stage 5(Snake):
Pretty much straightforward. Use the moss to dodge all the projectiles fired. While dodging, press triangle to spit acid and damage Xaros. Do this until his health-bar hits zero.

Stage 6(Human):
Xaros will summon some electric beams. Press circle a few times and dash to Xaros. When you reach him, hit Xaros a few times. Xaros will now teleport to the other side of the field. Repeat the steps above until you kill Xaros.

  Not All Wanderers Are Lost
Visit every corner of Monster World Kingdom.

The Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom map is quite big! You will need to find each spot on the map and at-least been there once.
The most will come naturally when you are completing the campaign. The few last percentages will come when you are collecting all the collectibles. Should you be stuck, please see the image below!

Some tips:
– Check the map on spots that have an “opening-mark” but don’t lead anywhere yet
– Use raindrops to reveal chests that may be hidden in chambers. (Can be used in Village Of Aeria and bought in the Village of Lupia.)
– Check if all the doors lead to somewhere
