Anyone wanna try and guess how Trophies are obtained?
Hope mods are OK with this.
The game's trophies don't offer direct descriptions on how to get them like how other games do. I personally like this idea, even though it'd mean some players will either get them with luck or have difficulty in obtaining them.
Now that the game is a day away from release, what say we post our thoughts on how to get them, so that we at least have an idea to get them.
You can find a movelist for the characters here:
Skullgirls - Shoryuken Wiki, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Strategy and More!
1- Happy Birthday
You got a present!
*Could be Peacock related? She has a special move wherein she throws random objects (think Lei-Lei/Hsein-ko's projectile attack in Darkstalkers/(U)MvC3) so maybe one of her throwable objects is birthday related?
**Or maybe the game keeps track of which character you use the most and when it's that's characters birthday you get the trophy? You can view character's birthdates in the official site:
2- World Warrior Princess
Wander the world... unintentionally.
*Prob. beat the game's arcade mode.
3- Call the Wardrobe Department
Make dozens of costume changes.
*Pretty sure you must play a match with each character's colors. Whether this'll pop up if you use training mode is to be seen.
...but to be safe, better do this in any mode but Training.
4- Breaking the Cycle
Retaliate against repetition.
*The game has a Burst system like in Guilty Gear/BlazBlue, so I believe performing one will net you this trophy.
5- Toil and Trouble
A sesquidecemvir of seven simulacra synergizing simultaneously.
*Looking up sesquidecemvir via a dictionary doesn't yield much, but it's apparently a combination of two words: sesqui & decemvir. I'm guessnig this is a Double related trophy since it says...seven smulacra synergizing. Maybe it's performing a combo while transforming into the 7 other characters?
6- Medical Board Will Be Notified
Your opponents aren’t the only ones under the knife.
*All I can guess about this trophy is that it is Valentine related...maybe you need to use her Lvl. 5 super in Tag team mode? Since her Lvl. 5 super ressurects a fallen character.
7- My Pain Will Be Visited Upon You
Sometimes you can take it, and sometimes you just want to lash out.
*Painwheel related, I don't know much outside of the basics about her moves sad to say.
8- Getting A Head In the Game
Sometimes you just need to relax and take the weight off your shoulders.
*Ms. Fortune related, maybe you need to do her head-off move 100 times or some such?
9- Good Hunting, Commander
A good commander knows how to wield her forces effectively.
*Parasoul related, prob. you must summon all her soldiers in one match?
10- The Kitchen Sink
Throw everything at them, including...
*Peacock related, I think it's self explanatory~
11- Real Circus Damage
And now, for the main attraction... Grappling!
*Cerebella related. Perhaps one needs to win a round or match using only her grab specials and super(s)?
12- Instant Hair Dash
Let your parasite feel the wind between his tendrils.
*Fillia related...I got nothin', maybe you need to get her winpose which has her hair pose much like Ryu's classic arm cross pose?
13- An Ensemble Cast
There may be no I in “team,” but there is in “variety.”
*Make every team combination possible when playing as Tag team. For 3-character teams there's around 21 combinations. For 2-character teams there're 28 combinations.
At least that's what I think =p
Words are fun - expand your vocabulary.
*Prob. view every character's winquote?
Graduation day has arrived at last! Mrs. Victoria’s so proud of you.
*Pretty sure you gotta finish the Tutorial mode...which is very robust from what I hear.
16- Threads of Fate
Follow all threads of fate to their inevitable conclusions.
*I think this is gained by completing Story mode.
Your thoughts ladies and gentlemen?

Didn't Peacock have a looney tunes style exploding present super?
I just hope most of the "do this a lot of times" you speculate about are actually "do this once or a couple of times".

I think all the bronze that sound character related are beating the story mode with that character. However, I beat the story on easy and didn't get a trophy so I assume it has to be medium or higher.
The birthday one: I assume it means as in "Happy Birthday" when you catch two characters in a combo and you defeat the assist. A fairly recent FGC term.
And for the prolific one: I am sure it has to do with your combo streak. Every combo length 2 and over has a special name. Maybe this has to do with arriving at a high combo hit.
Goals for 2013:
Completion Average: 94.60/95.00%

The "All threads" one is obviously for beating it with all the characters.
I'm on the last tutorial stage, so I should be able to confirm that soon. Last three stages are a pain.

Narrow it down for us.
I can confirm that Skµllgirls (I don't have the correct "u" on the Vita) unlocks after all the tutorials are completed. Ch. 3 Lesson 4: Air Chains & Ch. 4 Lesson 1: Advanced Techniques were the hardest. I highly suggest using the d-pad instead of the analog stick.

I know it's not for a high combo alone. It did not pop when I got a 99 hit combo. I think you need to see plenty of the different words associated with hit count. From "Poetic" and beyond. My problem is I don't think you have to see them all. The word you get changes every few hits.
I really doubt that I saw all of them already. I don't think messing around in training mode got me something character specific.
Given the crap ton of words depending on hits range... I can't imagine expanding your vocabulary being linked to much else.

So far I've only obtained three trophies.
I can confirm that retaliating when someone has you in a repeating combo or infinite DOES in fact unlock Breaking the Cycle. I got it at random in Story Mode (Medium) against Ms. Fortune. She only got up to like 16 hits so it doesn't have to repeat for long before you press a button to blow her to the other side of the screen.

Happy Birthday is definantly for killing an assist but I tried to do it with a second controller and simply kill one nearly dead assist and I got nothing. You might have to kill a full health assist in one combo.
