Introduction: Joe Danger is a PSN game created by Hello Games. It is basically a combination of Excite Bike and Trials HD. It has small elements of play/create/share as you are able to interactively edit levels while playing and also create your own levels in the track editor. The game has a Nintendo-esque feel to it and is presented beautifully. Joe Danger is a PS3 Exclusive and one fantastic game.
Step 1: Start Career first. You only need to play through the whole career once to unlock the Silver trophy, 'AROUND THE WORLD!'. From here you'll unlock the 'BACK ON THE BIKE' trophy for completing your first tour. If you progress through the career you will also unlock trophies such as, 'COMBO KING!', 'SPEED DEMON!', 'DETECTIVE!', 'DANGEROUS!', 'MONEY GRABBER!', 'STAY ON TARGET!', 'COLLECTOR!'. All these trophies will be unlocked very early on in your Career if you follow the guide below.
Step 2: When you complete all levels you'll want to go back and replay them, as you should be left with all the Silver trophies: 'ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD!', 'TRICK MASTER!' and 'MASTER OF DISASTER!'. These are obviously more harder to obtain and require quite a bit of skill. You will also need to memorize levels to a tee so you are able to beat the time limit and recieve the time stars. Check the trophy guide for requirements for these silver trophies. Another full playthrough isn't required per se, as you can use level select to get the stars you haven't obtained yet. Collect the rest of these stars and for the silver trophies.
Step 3: There may be a couple of trophies that you have not yet earned after Step 2. These might be MEGA COMBO! and NINJA STARS!, both of which can be obtained in Sandbox mode. They are also achievable in Career but are more of a challenge there, so I suggest doing them in Sandbox.
Step 4: Finally, you should be left with the online trophies, which are SHARE THE FUN! and BEAT THEM AT THEIR OWN GAME!. These trophies are very easy to get and they are fully explained in the guide.
If you have followed the guide and these four steps you should now have 100%'ed Joe Danger.
Get 1 level combo star.
This trophy is achieved by stringing as many combos together as you can in one trick. You will know when a combo has been stringed as the x2 will increase to x3, x4 and so on. If you stop your combo will end and reset. For this trophy you need to string together a combo that basically lasts the whole race and tops x19.
The first time you will come across this star is in 'Second Tour: Comeback Tour, Third Event: The V' - it is pretty easily achieved there.
See the trophy TRICK MASTER for more details.
Get 1 time star.
A time star is achieved by hitting all targets and finishing the race without running out of time. If you miss a target and forget to collect them all, but finish the race in time, then the star won't unlock and neither will the trophy.
The easiest way to get this is on 'Second Tour: Comeback Tour, First Event: Mostly Dangerous'. There are 5 targets to hit and the time to do it in is 33.0 seconds. This is easily achievable and you should get it on your first playthrough. You don't need to collect all of the mini-stars or hidden star to get this trophy.
Find 3 hidden stars.
These are usually bigger Golden Stars that are out of view or not in the path you take and these stars have to be found. The quickest way to get this is:
1st Hidden Star - 'Second Tour: Comeback Tour, First Event: Mostly Dangerous': This Star is located on the second building Structure. You will bounce over a Arrow block and hit a target, then drive up to a spring which will have stars leading to another spring and then stars from that leading up to the top of the building block. After bouncing on that second spring, instead of following the stars bounce in the opposite direction - the Hidden Star is located on the top of four boxes.
2nd Hidden Star - 'Fourth Tour: High Voltage, First Event: The Edge': Don't change lanes throughout the whole event to get this Hidden Star. This Star is located just before the first western town. It's near where you get the A to spell "DANGER". If you go up the ramp and drop off the edge you'll find a spring - you'll have to reverse up to it and hold while doing so. When you hit the spring release and you will get on top of the roof of the western town. Now all you have to do is drive along, jump again using and the Star should be at the end.
3rd Hidden Star - 'Fourth Tour: High Voltage, First Event: The Edge': Don't change lanes throughout the whole event to get this Hidden Star. Just after the second one you got above you'll come to a desert fort-looking building. Drive through it until you come to a spring. There will be stars in the air above it. Use the same process for this one as for Star 2. Hold down and as you hit the spring release it. You now need to just drive forward through the air using and you will see the Star on top of the tower.
Finish the race and if you've followed this guide you should have the trophy.
Get a DANGER star.
A DANGER star is achieved by collecting every letter of the word "danger" within one event. So you're looking for a total of six letters; these are located randomly around the track. You will come across the letters in the order it's spelled, i.e. D first, A second and so on. The first chance to get this is on 'Second Tour: Comeback Tour, Second Event: The Warthog'.
D - On top of the huge pile of pink cars you jump across. Can't miss it.
A - Just after getting D you'll come to a ramp where you will have to go up and jump through a circle across a bed of spikes. A is located above the spikes. Can't miss it.
N - Further on you'll come to a jump that has a spring where you jump onto a school bus, then onto another spring over a sharkpool and onto yet another school bus. The N is located above the sharkpool and has mini-stars leading to it. Again, can't be missed.
G - This letter is further along the way from N and this time there's a ramp that has 2 shark pools in front of it. This one is slightly harder to get than the first three letters. You won't get this by just riding the jump. Hold down and ride the jump. Before leaving the ramp release to get higher air time - you then should receive G if done properly.
E + R - These two letters are both next to each other. You'll come to a pile of light blue pickup trucks piled on top of two school buses. The first pickup has a spring where you will bounce straight up into E. From there you'll bounce to a higher pickup with another spring on it, which will bounce you into the final letter, R.
Finish the race to receive the trophy and the Star.

Joe Danger: Road Map and Trophy Guide
Get 5 coin dash stars.
A coin dash is when you see a red coin and you go through it - this will unveil gold coins in the path ahead. Collecting these gold coins before the timer runs out will earn you a Coin Dash Star at the end of the race. You have to collect 5 of these stars throughout your career to receive this trophy.
STAY ON TARGET!
Get 5 target stars.
Target Stars are achieved by hitting every target in an event. If you hit all targets then you will recieve a Star at the the end of the event. Collect 5 Target Stars throughout your career to receive this trophy. Below are five levels that I think are easiest to do for this trophy:
1st Star: First Tour: Stunt Weekly (Newspaper), Third Event: Joe Danger Rides Again
2nd Star: Second Tour: Comeback Tour, First Event: Mostly Dangerous
3rd Star: Fourth Tour: High Voltage, Second Event: Knuckles
4th Star: Fifth Tour: Explosive Tour, Third Event: Star Power
5th Star: Sixth Tour: Shock Hazard, First Event: Quad Damage
Collect all mini stars on 8 levels.
In different events you will come across mini stars. There are about 40-80 mini stars in an event that you will have to collect, but they are not found in every event. If you collect all the mini stars in one run you will recieve a star for collecting them all. When you collect 8 mini star stars on 8 levels you will receive the trophy.
BACK ON THE BIKE!
Complete the first tour.
For this Trophy you have to complete the first Tour. While in the main menu outside Joe's trailer, select Career. From there you will be taken to Tour select. The first Tour is a Newspaper on the table. Press on this and it will bring you to the Tour featuring 4 events. You have to complete every event to receive the Trophy. You don't have to get Gold in every event, you just have to complete the objectives for each event to unlock the next tour.
SHARE THE FUN!
Send 1 level to a friend.
For this trophy you have to send your level to someone on your friends list. First create a level in the Sandbox mode and save it. Once saved, upload the level and a message will appear with the game data attached. Choose a friend to send it to. It can be anyone, they don't even have to have the game. Once sent the trophy will pop up.
BEAT THEM AT THEIR OWN GAME!
Receive 1 level from a friend.
This one is similar to SHARE THE FUN! but someone has to send you a level. This time you have to have someone on your friends list who has Joe Danger. Get them to send you a level, then go to Download in the Sandbox mode and select their message. The level will download and the trophy should pop up. If no one you know has Joe Danger, then see this thread to find someone to boost it with: Trophy Boosting Thread
Get a x100 combo.
Self-explanatory. You have to string together a combo until it reaches x100. This can be done on any level but there are only a few levels where this is achievable. For more info see TRICK MASTER!
There is an alternative way of getting this:
"A super easy way of getting this is by going to the Track Editor and creating, saving, then testing a long empty track. I put in a coin at the end of the track just so i'd know when it was done. Now play the track, switching from wheelies (left on the L-stick) to ollies (right on the L-stick) till you build up a 100x combo. When i completed the track, I went in to a single player track and the Trophy popped up." - Thanks to Solace for this tip.
Get 4 stars in one run.
This basically means collect all 4 stars in one event. This is obviously impossible to do if the event only offers 3 stars, but some events offer up to 7+ stars, such as 'Fourth Tour: High Voltage, First Event: The Edge'. You can easily get 4 stars here, such as a Danger Star, 2 Hidden Stars, and time limit or combo Stars. Some you can't do to them being in different lanes. There are other events where this is achievable besides the one listed above - there may be another that is easier for you.
This trophy is also achievable within Sandbox mode. Create a very short level, add a few mini stars, coins to collect, a ramp, a target and a finish line. If you start the race on this custom track by pulling a wheelie all the way to the finish line, collecting all stars and dash coins, and landing on the target, you will get 4 stars and the trophy.
ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD!
Get all of the time stars.
Time Stars are achieved by finishing an event before time runs out. If you finish under the time limit stated you will receive a Time Star at the the end of the event. Collect all of the Time Stars throughout the career to achieve this trophy.
Get all of the combo stars.
This trophy is achieved by collecting all the 100% Combo Stars throughout your career. They are found on different events. Below are some tips to achieving them.
Finish all levels.
For this trophy you will have to play every tour and event in the game. To complete a level you must fulfill a number of certain objectives, like receive a certain number of stars, etc. Some levels require stars in order to enter them so make sure you unlock as many stars as possible so you can progress through every level.
MASTER OF DISASTER!
Get all the stars in the game.
This trophy requires you to achieve all the stars in the game, i.e. within every event. Stars include:

when i completed the track, i went in to a single player track and the Trophy popped up.
i'm sure we can whittle it down to an easier way, but this worked for me.
hope this helps!

Well good luck with it, I was coming on this morning to do it, but since you started it already, than I guess I won't worry about it (although if you want help, I have almost the entire guide minus 1 trophy written out already).
Thanks to ub4of for signature!
~Every now and then a lifetime needs a second chance, to find another one, like you, don't forget your better reason, all your silly risks will bring you down, oh several years of bitter Mondays take a heavy toll and then you realize, it's you until you make this easy harder, no one else will care if you're around~

very easy way to get....
Get 4 stars in one run.
just make a very short level with a few stars on it, some coins, a small jump with a target to land on and do the course while doing a wheelie. Just tried it and got the trophy.
