Hey there, welcome to this post, In this guide, we will tell you everything about Vernal Edge – All Achievements (How to Unlock) Follow this guide each steps.

There are no instructions I’ve seen yet for this game. So I figured I might as well build my own since I found everything myself. Here is a short and simple guidance to completing all of Vernal Edge’s achievements. There are a few minor teasers below.


Vernal Edge is a fun little game with lots of hidden objects to find and associated awards. The majority of these are unlocked by investigating the floating islands a little more thoroughly, whether it be by finishing side quests, mini games, or aiming for 100% completion. However, some accomplishments can be a little more difficult to find. Here is a quick tutorial on how to complete all of Vernal Edge’s achievements!

Here are a few minor teasers, so beware!

Please be patient with me while I work out these details since this is my first time writing a tutorial for a game. Once I have a better understanding of the mechanics underlying some of these achievements, I might update this guidance a little bit in the future, perhaps by adding some additional images and more thorough instructions.


Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Ending - 2C28296 Beat the game

Pretty self-explanatory. Just beat the final boss to finish the game and unlock the achievement.


Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Vicious - 37F4708 Beat the game on Vicious difficulty

Quite self-explanatory as well. Beat the game’s ultimate boss to complete it on the hardest setting. Vicious difficulty can be unlocked by beating the game once, but if you’d rather play through the game on Vicious level right away, we have a secret code for you!

Just go into the settings to access the secret code menu and enter the following code:

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Vicious - 616E3BB

You should get a message saying Vicious difficulty has been unlocked. Good luck out there!


Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Unreal - 33D2A98 Enter Unreality of your own accord

You’ll get this achievement by naturally playing through the game. Roughly halfway through the game, you’ll obtain the ability to open these strange rifts that you’ll come across on some islands. Simply open one of these rifts and enter inside to earn the achievement.

New Look

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - New Look - 3A89BE4 Find the hidden palette

You will need the Wall Run and Pulse Fly upgrades for this.

A locked door can be found on Mossy Isle if you proceed to the left of where the airship lands. You’ll need to explore a little in Unreality in order to access it. If you head to the Unreality Crossroads (first reached via the Barren Cave) and head out through the right door. A big room with green upside-down trees will shortly be yours to enter. You can discover a hidden path at the top of the room by using Pulse Fly to fly there. If you move forward, you will eventually find yourself back where you were when you were initially sent to Unreality.

Once you pass through the pink and green door, keep moving forward as you always have. Then, right away, turn left and use Wall Run to ascend to a new area. Projectiles that spin are present in this part of the game. I’m not sure if you can dash through these projectiles naturally without getting struck, but if you can’t, having the Reflection and Swift Slice Memories equipped should be of great assistance. A secret boss battle against Patche will take place at the path’s conclusion. Defeating them earns you this prize. The??? Key.

Use the key to go back and open the door on the Mossy Isle. You’ll find something strange inside, but you’ll also discover a cool new Vernal color scheme that you can toggle in the settings menu, along with a new achievement, to go along with it!

Big Spender

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Big Spender - A7E5F2A Purchase every item from every shop

Actually, it’s simpler than it seems. There are three stores in the game: a Church soldier in Pyrena who gives you new combat techniques; a shopkeeper in Pyrena and Rosalis who will sell spells; and a shopkeeper in Pyrena who will sell memories and memory points. As the Memories they sell are very helpful for both combat and exploration, I personally would prefer purchasing from the Pyrena shopkeeper first.

To buy everything, you’ll need a fair amount of money (I’ll have to play it again to figure out how much), but if you win every battle and open every chest you discover, you should have more than enough money to do so, so grinding shouldn’t be a problem. Enemies will drop more money when vanquished while the “Money” Memory is on, so if you discover it, you can equip it to hasten the process a little. You should be able to earn the achievement after purchasing the final item from the final shopkeeper.

Parry Master

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Parry Master - 03405AB Parry 8 hits without taking damage

This was a tough one for me, personally. To get this achievement you will need to purchase the “Deflection” Memory from the Pyrena shopkeeper. With this activated, if you press [DOWN] just as an enemy is about to attack you, instead of getting hit you will instead “parry” it and reflect the damage back to the enemy. However, the window to parry an attack is much smaller than normally blocking it. It’s also important to know that a regular block won’t count towards the achievement. Personally it’s likely the easiest to parry the attacks of the basic enemy grunts pictured below, as they only have two different attacks and they’re pretty well telegraphed.

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Parry Master - EAB522C

It will take some time and practice, and there’s a decent chance you might die before succeeding, but if you can manage to successfully parry an attack eight times in a row without getting hit once, the achievement will be yours!

Treasure Hunter

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Treasure Hunter - A17ECB5 Acquire Treasure Sense

You will need the Wall Run upgrade for this.

In the lower parts of Pyrena you will meet a shady NPC named Sen. She’s willing to sell you a very useful Memory for the “low” price of 999,999,999,999 pieces. Obviously this an amazing and totally affordable price, but Sen’s willing to cut us a deal. All she needs is a special medicinal powder and they’ll gladly give us the Memory, free of charge! So, where can we find this special medicinal powder?

When you reach Rosalis, you’ll come across an NPC that resembles a goat on the far right side of town. He has some of the medicine we’re looking for, but he’ll only give it to us in exchange for a very special plant in return. To find this plant we’ll need to head over to the Arboretum. In the large, vertical room of the Arboretum, if you Wall Run up the left side you’ll come across the plant you’re looking for: a stock of… broccoli? Grab it and head back to the goat in Rosalis and he’ll give you the Medical Powder.

Return to Sen in Pyrena to give her the powder. After a short cutscene and a secret boss fight against Sen, herself you will get Treasure Seeker: an extremely useful Memory that allows you to see how many pickups/secrets you have collected on every island. Acquiring the Memory will also give you the achievement as well!


Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Pacifist - 8E478CD Acquire Pacifist’s Curse

This could possibly be the first achievement you unlock, as you can get it as soon as you start a new playthrough. At the very beginning on the game, in the first room, you’ll fall down next to a lone training dummy. With this dummy, you can learn the basics and practice with Vernal Edge’s combat mechanics. If you pay close attention, you’ll notice that the dummy’s health bar is actually depleting veeeeery slowly. And if you’re curious just like I was, you might also wonder if anything would happen if you manage to actually destroy it.

After spending a few minutes whacking it around, it turns out you actually can destroy the training dummy. And this first one in particular drops the “Pacifist’s Curse” Memory. It actually doesn’t really do anything useful, as it actually halves the damage you deal to enemies when you have it equipped. But hey, if you want to make your playthough that much harder, then go for it! Plus you also got another achievement for getting it so no harm, no foul (no pun intended).

Deeply Rooted

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Deeply Rooted - 9B3AA5B Discover your roots

This one requires you to learn to Read (yes, really).

Dotted across the islands are smaller rooms with shelves that you can interact with. These aren’t really anything special, at least upon first glance, however once you acquire the Read ability from the Hidden Facility, you can see what these shelves really have to offer: some additional context behind the backstory and lore of the game, what happened before the game started and some insight on Vernal’s family. There are quite a few of these hidden bookshelves around the world, but their locations are as follows (I may add pictures in the future):

  • Aloe Air Fortress: In the upper right area of the Air Fortress, specifically the blue steam-filled room. On the right side of the room is a short hallway with the bookshelf at the end.
  • Arboretum: In the far right part of the Arboretum, in the room where you first acquired the Airstep upgrade, you will find the bookshelf to the left near a treasure chest.
  • Debris Field: On the upper area of the Debris Field is a door to enter a large tower. Go immediately to the left after entering the tower to find a room with the bookshelf.
  • Fungal Ruins: This one’s a little tricky. In the centre of upper-right section of the Fungal ruins, there is a small section comprised of three small, rectangular rooms. The top-most room has the bookshelf in it.
  • Jungle: On the upper platform inside the Hermit’s cabin. It’s pretty easy to spot.
  • Peony’s Letter: In your inventory, you can now read the letter from Vernal’s mother.
  • Pyrena: In the training yard found to the left of Sen. Jump up a vertical section to reach an alcove with the bookshelf.

After reading each entry, you should unlock a new conversation on the airship. Trigger it for a bittersweet conversation between Vernal and Chervil, as well as the achievement.

Fisher Queen

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Fisher Queen - 6883F10 Win the fishing minigame

This one was… oddly tough for me to get. At the very bottom of the Debris Field, you can find an NPC next to his fishing hole. He’ll offer you a challenge to catch 75kg worth of fish. You’ll need to knock the fish out of the air and hit them into the net to score points, but this is easier said than done. The fish are as follows:

  • Blue fish are worth 5kg each and need to be blocked to knock them out of the air.
  • Pink fish are worth 6kg each and need to be hit with a Pulse throw to knock them out of the air.
  • Orange fish are worth 7kg each and need to be hit with a charged attack to knock them out of the air.
  • Make sure to hit them into the net, as they will eventually flop back into the water after a long enough time.

This will likely take you a few attempts, as the fish can be very difficult to hit. But a good thing to keep in mind is that the fish will appear in the same order every time you attempt the minigame. Memorize their patterns and stay focused and you will reach that 75kg goal soon enough! Your hard work will be rewarded with a Mana Piece and the achievement.


Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Slugger - 211AD99 Win the baseball minigame

This minigame was much easier for me to play than the fishing one. Outfield Island, a tiny island, is located just outside Rosalis. A batting cage, the newest and best entertainment on the Floating Isles, is run by another NPC here. To win the minigame and receive your prize, you must earn 1000 points. The actual minigame itself is next:

The cannon will fire a number of substantial baseballs, each of which must be struck with a charge attack in order to connect with the net on the opposing side of the room and earn points. More points are awarded if you strike the higher part of the net. The fact that each baseball can be juggled in the air with a regular assault is now a very crucial point to remember. Additionally, each time a baseball is juggled, it receives a bonus point multiplier of 0. 5 up to a bonus multiplier of 4. You can easily score 200 points if you can smash a baseball with an x4.0 multiplier into the top net.

Juggling multiple baseballs at once is manageable with the proper positioning. You’ll finish the minigame in no time if you just keep your cool and remain concentrated to maintain the rhythm. You will receive the “Defensive Stance” Memory and the Slugger accomplishment as payment for doing so.

Green Thumb

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Green Thumb - 5CDD60D Tend to the lonely flower

You will need the Wall Run and Pulse Fly upgrades for this achievement.

Another major sidequest in the game. Over in Pyrena is an NPC who mentions a rare type of flower that can grow quite tall. That’s nice. Anyways, in the more remote regions of the world map is a tiny, remote island called Little Flower. All that’s there are a few dead trees, dried up dirt, and a lone, droopy sprout. Time for some gardening! To do this, we’ll need some fertile soil, and there are three batches of it scattered around the islands:

  • Arboretum: Right next to where the airship docks in the Arboretum is a secret area. Inside you can find some treasure and the first batch of fertile soil.
  • Outfield Island: On Outfield Island are some steep walls. Using the Wall Run ability, you can run all the way up to the top, where you will find the next batch of fertile soil.
  • Jungle: While you’re doing your fetch quest for the Hermit, you should be able to find the last batch of fertile soil easily enough in the far-right area of the Jungle. Just use the Pulse Fly to complete a quick platforming challenge to get it.

Every time you collect a new batch of fertile soil, make sure to return to Little Flower and spread it around the sprout, and you’ll notice some greenery slowly return to the lonely little island. After using the third batch of soil, talk to the NPC in Pyrena again, then head back to Little Flower to enjoy your lush new garden, as well as some nice rewards for doing so. The Green Thumb achievement should also unlock here.

Pyramid Master

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Pyramid Master - 62FF424 Complete the Pyramid without using the shortcut

In order to successfully finish the Pyramid Trial and earn the achievement, it is best to save this achievement until last. A difficult platforming task can be found on the island known as The Pyramid Trial. Now, the challenging portion isn’t necessarily the platforming itself, but rather the strict deadline you must meet. The first section of the pyramid can be skipped using a breakable wall in a secret passage at the start of the trial, but if you want to obtain the achievement, make sure you DO NOT TAKE THIS SHORTCUT.

Without using the shortcut, it is still feasible to just about complete the trial, but there is little leeway for error. This will probably require several attempts to complete. To improve your movement and sharpen your platforming abilities, be sure to as completely as possible remember the trial’s layout. It will be very helpful to maximize the use of the Wall Run, Water Slide, and Pulse Fly skills in order to save time. The accomplishment should become available for you if you can climb the pyramid without using the initial shortcut. Lucky you!


Slime Time

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Slime Time - E536FC9 Discover Slime’s Summit

This one will require the Pulse Fly upgrade to get.

Enter the Unreality Crossroads through the entrance in the Barren Cave. Continue moving to the right a little bit until you see another Unreality rift on a ledge high above you (you’ll know where it is if you have the “Sense of Direction” Memory equipped). Use Pulse Fly to reach the rift, and enter through it to enter a hidden area: Slime’s Summit. Just entering the area for the first time should trigger the achievement, but make sure you stick around and explore a little bit, as the area has a short side-quest that gives you some very nice rewards, including the powerful “Explosion” Spell. You’ll also be able to find a docking point to call Chervil and the airship, which allows you to return to Slime Summit directly from the world map.

Knocked Around The Clock

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Knocked Around The Clock - 5940108 Become a one-note wonder

I’m actually a little surprised that I was able to figure this one out on my own. Figuring out what to do is tricky, but once you know what it is, it’s actually really straightforward. Dotted all around the Foggy Ruin are large bells that you can ring as part of a larger puzzle. These bells will rock back and forth when you hit them, with charged attacks making them swing faster. The achievement is simple: continue to hit a bell over and over again until it makes a full 360 rotation. This should work with any bell, and once you do it the achievement will be unlocked.

The hitboxes on the bells can be quite finicky though, so it make take a few minutes of constant whacking to get it, and sometimes you just have to hope the bell will swing in the right direction. But if you just keep whacking at the bell with a combination of normal and charged attacks, you’ll eventually get it to make a full rotation.

Hello George

Vernal Edge - All Achievements (How to Unlock) - Hello George - 2373E97 Meet Chervil’s new friend

For a while I didn’t really understand what caused this one, as it just seemed to randomly trigger at first, but this one is actually really simple. You just need to kill 5 training dummies throughout your playthrough. The fastest way to do this is go to the Fallen Tower, where you can hit a dummy off of a ledge to kill it instantly.

Killing 5 training dummies will unlock a new conversation on the airship where Chervil brings on board a training dummy to keep him company. After watching the conversation, the achievement will unlock.
