When Final Fantasy X was re-released as Final Fantasy X HD on the PS3, new features were added to the game. One of the main new features was the ability to gain trophies, like most other PS3 games include. There are a total of 19 bronze trophies available in Final Fantasy X HD. These tend to be the easiest trophies to acquire, but many of them still require significant effort. The following guide will help you acquire all 19 bronze trophies in Final Fantasy X HD.
A Talent for Acquisition – If you enjoy stealing, this is an easy trophy to acquire. You need to successfully steal with Rikku 200 times. The Mug skill will also work for this trophy, but assuming you successfully steal in every battle, you should get this trophy before learning the Mug skill.
All Together – This is a trophy you will acquire naturally during the game. Once you obtain your last party member, Kimhari, you will automatically receive this trophy.
Chocobo License – When you finally get to the Calm Lands, you will meet a Chocobo Trainer. Talk to the trainer for a bit and you will get an option to perform Chocobo training. Once you complete all of the training exercises, you will receive this trophy.
Chocobo Rider – This bronze trophy is particularly difficult. In fact, it might the hardest of all bronze trophies. You need to complete the Catcher Chocobo race in a time of 0 seconds. This is a matter of pure luck. You need to be a skilled racer and you need to hit every single balloon. Practice the race until you master the course and then try to simply hit balloons. There is no easy way to do this other than practice.
Delta Attack! – After you have defeated the game you can go to Remiem Temple from the Calm Lands. There you will fight Belgemine in a series of Aeon battles. If you defeat Bahamut, you will win the Flower Sceptre. If you also catch every type of fiend on Mt. Gagazet, you will get the Blossom Crown. With these two items you can fight the Magus Sisters. Defeat them and you will earn this trophy.
Heartstrings – This is a rather easy trophy to acquire. About halfway through the game you will see a rather intimate cut scene with Tidus and Yuna. Once it completes, you earn this trophy.
It’s All About the Money – In the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth you can fight Yojimbo. It is a tough fight, mostly because his overdrive will instantly kill your party and your only protection is to summon an Aeon right before it activates. If you beat him, you will get a chance to purchase him. This involves some negotiating, but his final price should be around 200,000 to 250,000 gil. Pay the cost and earn this trophy.
Lightning Dancer – If Chocobo Rider isn’t the hardest bronze trophy, it is only because this is. You need to dodge lightning bolts 200 times. This requires split second timing 200 times in a row without failure. Other than a lot of luck and skill, the only other things that helps is that you can pause after dodging a lightning bolt to give your hand a rest.
Messenger from the Past – There are 10 Jecht Spheres in the game. The first you get automatically with plot and the rest you need to find. They usually are in plain sight, if just a little out of the way. The other nine locations for the spheres are: Besaid Island village, S.S. Liki bridge, outside Besaid Auroch locker room, Old Road, Mushroom Rock precipice, south wharf of Moonflow, Thunder Plains near a lightning tower, Macalania Woods entrance, and the mountain trail on Mt. Gagazet. Once you get all 10, you obtain this trophy.
Overcoming the Past – Near the very end of the game, shortly before fighting Sin, you will enter the Cloister of Trials and fight Yunalesca. After you defeat Yunalesca, you will automatically gain this trophy.
Power Strike – You need to deal 9999 damage with a single strike. The easiest way to do this is after you have finished the game. You can max out the sphere grid of a character and then just fight a really easy enemy.
Show Off! – Win a Blitzball tournament and this trophy is yours. Two strategies work for this. The first is to play lots of Blitzball early and make the Aurochs nearly undefeatable. The second is to scout a lot and buy a really great team and then just win a tournament easily.
Speaking in Tongues – As soon as you find an Al Bhed Primer, you get this trophy. Since the first Al Bhed Primer is given to your for free, you get this early in the game.
Striker – Early in the game you take a trip on the S. S. Winno. On the ship you find a blitzball. If you examine the ball, you can perform a relatively easy mini-game. Complete the mini-game and you will learn the Jecht Shot and this trophy.
Teamwork! – This trophy requires you to win a single Blitzball match. If you followed the advice for Show Off then you already won a match and already earned this trophy.
The Destination of Hatred – The second to last battle in the game is against Seymour Omnis. The difficulty of this battle is based on how well you have equipped and powered up your party, but you should be familiar enough with the game to have a relatively easy time. Win the battle and earn this trophy.
The Right Thing – Near the very start of the game you will be required to engage in the Cloister of Trials in Besaid. The game practically holds your hand through this portion. Once you complete it, you earn this trophy.
Theater Enthusiast – There are spheres for sale in the Luca Theater. It may burn through your money supply, but you can buy them all. Since the game saves trophies as soon as you earn them, you can even buy them all and then reset the game and still have the trophy.
Under the Table – You get this trophy for spending more than 100,000 gil on the Bribe skill. Some of the later items cost as much as 260,000 gil for a bribe, so this is actually really easy to earn. You just need some money and the Bribe skill, which you won’t get until almost the end of the game. In fact, most of the enemies that you meet at the point where you get this skill require a bribe of at least 100,000 gil in order to get the item they have.
