Sonic Frontiers Trophy Guide and Road Map for PS4 & PS5
Welcome to our Sonic Frontiers Trophy Guide. Sonic Frontiers is a brand new entry in SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog series, which has a history of poor reviews but a very dedicated fanbase.
This latest entry freshens up the stale Sonic gameplay by introducing free-roam exploration. However, they manage to preserve the traditional sonic gameplay by having short stages you can play via portals.
Overall, the game is a pretty fun experience, albeit jarring and somewhat fever-dream-ish at times. The trophy journey is an absolute breeze as nothing is missable and everything can be done on easy. Just sit back, relax, and—of course—go fast!
Phase One – Complete the Main Story
In this initial phase of our Sonic Frontiers Trophy Guide, you can just enjoy the game. No difficulty trophies mean you can play on any difficulty you like, and a lack of missable trophies means you’ll have an easy time mopping up anything you do happen to miss. Ultimately, play the game however you want and just enjoy yourself.
If you want to get things out of the way fairly quickly, though, I’d recommend taking your time to explore and complete every side-activity you can get your hands on. Everything is marked on the map once you complete the challenges on each island, and even the challenges are clearly marked on the map at “?” icons!
If you’re going to do a completionist playthrough, I would recommend completing all the map challenges on each island first. Once you’ve fully unveiled the map, you’ll be able to find everything much easier!
One thing I strongly recommend you do while completing the story, regardless of whether you intend to clean up later, is always to engage every enemy. Not only will they frequently drop valuable resources, but the Easy Prey and Threats Identified trophies require you to defeat every enemy and guardian type at least once, and it’ll be much easier to do if you’re not avoiding conflicts and are making progress naturally.
Unmissable Story Trophies
Defeated a guardian for the first time
Guardians are larger, tougher enemies that can be found at crossed-sword icons on the map. They’ll take a bit more effort to defeat than a standard enemy but shouldn’t provide too much difficulty at the right levels.
You will face your first Guardian on Kronos Island, and you need to defeat it in order to retrieve the first Portal Gear. After defeating one for the first time, the Unknown Threat trophy will unlock.
The Journey Begins
Completed the Kronos Island tutorials
The events on Kronos Island are fairly linear at first and will lead to you eventually recovering a Blue Chaos Emerald. After doing so, the game will open up fully, and the “The Journey Begins” trophy will unlock unavoidably.
Defeated the Titan and completed the main story on Kronos Island
Progress the story and complete the main story events on Kronos Island to unavoidably unlock the “The Beginning” trophy.
Defeated the Titan and completed the main story on Ares Island
Progress the story and complete the main story events on Area Island to unavoidably unlock the “Ancient Defiance” trophy.
Defeated the Titan and completed the main story on Chaos Island
Progress the story and complete the main story events on Chaos Island to unavoidably unlock the “Futile Resistance” trophy.
Hope Across Ages
Defeated the Titan and completed the main story on Ouranos Island
Progress the story and complete the main story events on Ouranos Island to unavoidably unlock the “Hope Across Ages” trophy.
A Land at Peace
Defeated the final threat and completed the main story
Progress the story and complete the final story mission to unlock the “A Land at Peace” trophy unavoidably.
Phase Two – Cleanup
With the Main Story complete, you will have full access to roam freely across the four Islands. Use this time to revisit them and complete any outstanding objectives in order to receive the trophies listed below.
Side Story Trophies
Kronos Island Expert
Viewed all Side Stories on Kronos Island
On Kronos Island, you will see Amy the Hedgehog and Sage (new character) icons on the map. When you go to these, if you have collected enough of Amy’s Memory Fragments (pink heart collectibles) from around the island, you will be able to trigger a cutscene with that character.
Make your way all across Kronos Island, triggering each of these cutscene opportunities until you have seen them all, thus unlocking the Kronos Island Expert trophy.
If you have enough of Amy’s Memory Fragments, you will see “Needed: 0” above the character’s head. Otherwise, you will see the exact number of Fragments you’ll need to trigger the cutscene. You can check the map for heart-shaped icons, indicating the presence of a Memory Fragment.
Ares Island Expert
Viewed all Side Stories on Ares Island
On Ares Island, you will see Knuckles the Echidna and Sage (new character) icons on the map. When you go to these, if you have collected enough of Knuckles’ Memory Fragments (orange medal collectibles) from around the island, you will be able to trigger a cutscene with that character.
Make your way all across Ares Island, triggering each of these cutscene opportunities until you have seen them all, thus unlocking the Ares Island Expert trophy.
If you have enough of Knuckles’ Memory Fragments, you will see “Needed: 0” above the character’s head. Otherwise, you will see the exact number of Fragments you’ll need to trigger the cutscene. You can check the map for medal-shaped icons, indicating the presence of a Memory Fragment.

Viewed all Side Stories
The Expert Historian trophy will unlock once you have unlocked Kronos Island Expert, Ares Island Expert, Chaos Island Expert, and Ouranos Island Expert.
Map Challenge Trophies
Kronos Island Explorer
Completed all Challenges on Kronos Island and fully revealed the map
Challenges are found at red “?” icons on the map. Not all of them can be completed right away. Some will have yellow chain icons next to them, indicating that you will need to return later after making more progress.
You can easily find these icons on the map, and typically completing one of these challenges will reveal another one. You can make your way to them one by one to complete them all and fully reveal the map.
Doing this for every Challenge on Kronos Island will unlock the Kronos Island Explorer trophy.
The challenges are very easy. If ever you’re stuck, try using a Cyloop around anything that looks suspicious; this typically reveals the answer if not a clue for it. You may also notice that sometimes a Tutorial prompt will appear when you approach a Map Challenge, this will typically give you a very strong clue as to what you need to do here.
Note that some Challenges can only be completed at night, indicated by a moon icon. Be sure to return once the day-night cycle has rotated through to night.
You can rinse and repeat this process on every island until you have unlocked all of the “Explorer” trophies below.
Ares Island Explorer
Completed all Challenges on Ares Island and fully revealed the map
To unlock the Ares Island Explorer trophy, complete every Map Challenge on Ares Island.
Chaos Island Explorer
Completed all Challenges on Chaos Island and fully revealed the map
To unlock the Chaos Island Explorer trophy, complete every Map Challenge on Chaos Island.
Ouranos Island Explorer
Completed all Challenges on Ouranos Island and fully revealed the map
To unlock the Ouranos Island Explorer trophy, complete every Map Challenge on Ouranos Island.
Portal Repair Trophies
Kronos Island Memories
Repaired all Portals on Kronos Island
To repair a Portal (throne-shaped access points into Cyber Space Areas), you simply need to bring the required number of Portal Gears to it.
You can get Portal Gears by defeating enemies, especially Guardians.
To unlock the “Kronos Island Memories” trophy, you will need to repair all 7 Portals on Kronos Island. You don’t need to actually enter any of these portals, just repair them all.
Ares Island Memories
Repaired all Portals on Ares Island
To unlock the “Ares Island Memories” trophy, you will need to repair all 7 Portals on Ares Island. You don’t need to actually enter any of these portals, just repair them all.
Chaos Island Memories
Repaired all Portals on Chaos Island
To unlock the “Chaos Island Memories” trophy, you will need to repair all 7 Portals on Chaos Island. You don’t need to actually enter any of these portals, just repair them all.
Ouranos Island Memories
Repaired all Portals on Ouranos Island
To unlock the “Ouranos Island Memories” trophy, you will need to repair all 9 Portals on Ouranos Island. You don’t need to actually enter any of these portals, just repair them all.
Skill and Upgrade Trophies
Unlocked all Skills
Unrivaled Aptitude will unlock when you have purchased every single Skill in the Skills Menu. You can access the Skills menu via and can purchase Skills using Skill Points.
Skill Points Accumulate over time whenever you collect Skill Pieces. Skill Pieces are found everywhere. Sometimes enemies will drop them, sometimes they’ll be in Treasure Spots or breakables, and you can even earn Skill Pieces by performing Air Tricks once you’ve bought that skill.
Accumulate enough Skill Points throughout the game to purchase every skill, then do so, and the trophy is all yours.
Activated a Power Boost for the first time
Sonic has a maximum number of rings, which can be upgraded, but the default Ring Cap is 400 (unless you have upgraded it at Elder Koco). When you reach this Ring Cap, your Boost ability will be upgraded to a Power Boost, making you boost much faster.
Using a Power Boost for the first time will unlock the Speed Demon trophy. You will know when your Power Boost becomes available thanks to a cutscene that plays to show Sonic powering up.
Performed a Phantom Rush for the first time, outside of the training simulator
“Phantom Rush” is an ability you can buy in the Skills menu.
To use it, you must continuously execute attack combos until the combo meter underneath the combo counter on the right is filled completely. Continue pressing at that time, and Sonic will activate his Phantom Rush attack.
You’ll receive a tutorial on executing the skill shortly after purchasing it, but this won’t count towards the trophy. You will need to execute this attack against an enemy.
This is easiest to achieve against Guardians and Titans because they have a much larger health bar than most enemies.
Performed Phantom Rush 50 times, outside of the training simulator
After earning the Combo Convert trophy, you will need to execute Phantom Rush another 49 times to reach a total of 50 Phantom Rush executions.
A good place to farm this trophy is actually the Guardian called Asura on Kronos Island.
The reason for this is that you can attack its legs infinitely without damaging it, and you’ll be relatively safe from its attacks down there too.
Remember to let the Phantom Rush gauge deplete after each activation for it to count as a full use. You can’t farm this trophy in a single combo, unfortunately.
Gathered 200 Koco
Koco can be found all over every island in Sonic Frontiers. They are cute little statue-like critters that make baby-like sounds when nearby. They’re typically found near key locations like Portals, but they can really be found anywhere.
The easiest way to collect a large number of Koco is to purchase them from Big the Cat using Green Fish Tokens. You get these from landing catches in the fishing minigame.
After earning the Angler’s Club trophy, you will have around 100+ Green Fish Tokens to spend and can purchase 20 Lost Koco for just 3 Tokens. Buying these just 10 times for a total of 30 Tokens is more than enough to exceed the 200 Koco requirement of the Koco Leader trophy!
Note that as this trophy is cumulative, you do not need to have 200 Koco all at once. You’re free to use them for upgrades at the Elder however you wish.
Elder Koco Encounter
Spoke with Elder Koco for the first time
Elder Koco is a round statue-like character with a moss-covered body and five spikes on his head. You can find Elder Koco on every island, and his icon is easy to spot on the map.
Whenever you speak to him, any Koco that you’ve collected will be converted into Speed & Ring stat increases. You will need to do this to unlock Hearty Hedgehog and Hyperspeed Hedgehog.
The very first time that you find and discover this NPC, however, speak to him, and you will unlock the “Elder Koco Encounter” trophy.
Koco can be found all over the map on every island in the game. They’re small round statue-like creatures that make baby-like sounds when approached. You can collect them by simply walking over them.
They like to hang out at key locations like Map Challenges and Portals.
Hermit Koco Encounter
Spoke with Hermit Koco for the first time
In Sonic Frontiers, there’s a character you can talk to called Hermit Koco. This character looks like a stone statue with a big moss beard. When you speak with him, he will automatically convert any blue seeds you gathered into defence and any red seeds into attack.
You will need to do this to unlock Herculean Hedgehog and Hardened Hedgehog. The first time you visit this NPC, however, the “Hermit Koco Encounter” trophy will unlock.
Seeds often drop from enemy encounters, side-activities, fishing events, and you can even purchase them at fishing spots.
Raised Power Level to MAX
You can increase Sonic’s Power Level (attack) by bringing Red Seeds to the Hermit Koco. He’ll make a direct one-for-one trade; one Red Seed = One Extra Power Level.
Bring the Hermit Koco a total of 98 Red Seeds, which can easily be farmed from enemies, to reach the MAX Power Level of 99 and unlock the Herculean Hedgehog trophy.
Raised Defense Level to MAX
You can increase Sonic’s Defense Level by bringing Blue Seeds to the Hermit Koco. He’ll make a direct one-for-one trade; one Blue Seed = One Extra Defense Level.
Bring the Hermit Koco a total of 98 Blue Seeds, which can easily be farmed from enemies, to reach the MAX Defense Level of 99 and unlock the Hardened Hedgehog trophy.
Raised Ring Level to MAX
The Hearty Hedgehog Trophy will unlock once you have increased Sonic’s Ring Capacity Level to 99 (MAX). See Hypersonic Hedgehog for more info.
Raised Speed Level to MAX
You can increase Sonic’s or Ring Capacity Speed Level by finding Koco and bringing them to the Elder Koco. You can exchange Koco there for an increase of 1 Level at a time. This means asking Elder Koco to increase your level by one a total of 98 times. And he’s so slow too, so prepare a movie or something to watch if you do this in bulk.
You can choose to upgrade either Speed or Ring Capacity Level. I recommend that you focus on just one of these skills at a time. So, start by increasing Ring Capacity to Level 99. Then, once you have the Hearty Hedgehog trophy, you can just visit Hermit Koco (not Elder Koco) to ask him to exchange your Ring Capacity Levels for Speed Levels… One at a time… Very slowly…
Each Upgrade will cost you 10 Koco so you will need a total of 980 Koco to max out one of these stats and then move them over to the other stat and unlock them both.
Alternatively, if you do want to try and MAX both stats simultaneously, you will need a whopping 1960 Koco.
Once you have transferred all 98 levels from one skill to the other, you should have both the Hypersonic Hedgehog and Hearty Hedgehog Trophies without having to MAX out both stats simultaneously.
Defeat Every Enemy Type Once
Defeated all enemy types
The Easy Prey trophy requires you to defeat at least one of every enemy type. Enemies respawn very frequently, and you can easily revisit past islands and portals, so there’s no worry of you missing any enemies. Unfortunately, though, tracking this trophy isn’t possible so the only way to really ensure you acquire it is to fight every enemy you see.
As long as you never shy away from a confrontation, you should acquire the Easy Prey trophy naturally throughout your first playthrough. If that doesn’t happen though, you will very likely unlock it while doing cleanup for other trophies.
Defeated all guardian types
There are 18 different types of Guardian that you can find in Sonic Frontiers, some of which are available multiple times on multiple islands.
To unlock the “Threats Identified” trophy, you will need to find and defeat at least one of each Guardian type. You can use the below table to keep track of which ones you need:
Guardians can always be found at red crossed-sword icons on the map/compass so they’re very easy to locate, especially once you’ve revealed the map fully.
100% One Cyber Space Area
Completed all Missions in one Cyber Space area
Throughout each of the islands in Sonic Frontiers, you will find large throne-like portals which can be activated using Portal Gears collected from enemies, especially Guardians.
Activating a Portal allows you to access a “Cyber Space Area,” which is a mini version of a traditional sonic level. Usually, only a few of minutes long.
Each one has four Missions; Complete the level, Clear with Rank S time, Clear with a certain number of rings, and find all Red Star Rings.
The hardest of these is typically to achieve a Rank S rating, but you can read more about that here. The Ring challenges are usually quite simple too, you mostly just need to ensure you don’t take damage.
And, finally, the Red Star Rings are typically very easy to find because the Cyber Space Areas are such short levels. Take your time to explore each possible route through the area until you have them all.
Note that you don’t need to complete all of these missions or even collect all of the Red Star Rings in one run. Each time you complete a Cyber Space area, your mission and Red Star Ring progress is saved. So you can just replay the level over and over until you achieve every objective one-by-one.
Doing this for the first time in any Cyber Space Area will unlock the Perfect Run trophy.
Achieved Rank S time, for the first time in a Cyber Space area
Each Cyber Space Area that you can access in Sonic Frontiers will have one mission that requires you to achieve an S Rank.
You will receive a letter rating at the end of the stage, which will increase depending on your clear time. The highest rating is “S” and will require you to finish the stage in a fairly quick amount of time. Some levels are harder than others.
I personally found this very easy to accomplish in Portal 1-4 on Kronos Island. Achieve an S rating for the very first time to unlock the “Superior Ranking” trophy.
You’ll be pleased to know that no trophy requires you to achieve S-rank in every Cyber Space Area. This is the only S-rank you need, and you should unlock it alongside the Perfect Run trophy.
Completed the fishing tutorial
You can find Fishing Spots at Fish-shaped icons on the map. They look just like the throne-shaped portals except they are purple and have no Gear cost to access them.
Entering one for the first time will trigger a tutorial where Big the Cat teaches you how to fish. Complete this to unlock the “Big Encounter” trophy.
Ticket to Tranquility
Earned 100 Purple Coins
Purple Coins can be found all over the map. Commonly, however, you will find them at the end of side paths, hidden up high, or near key locations like Portals and Chaos Emeralds.
You can see how many Purple Coins you have at any Fishing Spot, where you can spend them for attempts at Big the Cat’s Fishing Minigame.
You’ll likely find and collect far more than just 100 Purple Coins throughout your playthrough without really having to look that hard. Note that it is safe to spend your Purple Coins. The trophy is cumulative, and so you do not need to possess 100 Purple Coins at once.
Once you’ve collected a cumulative total of 100 Purple Coins by any means, the Ticket to Tranquility trophy will unlock!
Landed all catches at one fishing spot
Once you have found and entered a Fishing Spot for the first time, you can continue fishing at that spot until you’ve caught every fish available.
It costs at least one Purple Coin every time you want to use a fishing spot, so make sure you have at least 32 before attempting this trophy. See here to learn more about Purple Coins.
There are only 32 items to catch at the Western Fishing Spot on Kronos Island, where I unlocked the trophy.
It is the Cheapest Fishing Spot at just one coin per fishing attempt. You are guaranteed to catch a different fish or item every single time you catch something. Therefore, we know that you’ll only need a minimum of 32 Purple Coins before attempting this trophy.
Once you have enough, head to the Fishing Spot on Kronos Island and spend all 32 Purple Coins to land every possible catch at that spot, thus unlocking the Angler’s Club trophy!
Swath of Destruction
Destroyed 100 breakable objects
Breakable Objects include things like glass cannisters, barrels, crates. Anything that’s not an enemy but can be destroyed, essentially.
Honestly, you will have a hard time not destroying 100 or more breakables throughout your first playthrough, so you needn’t pay this trophy much mind.
Encountered a starfall for the first time
Every few in-game nights, a Starfall event will occur where everything on the map respawns. Similar to a Blood Moon in Breath of the Wild if you’re familiar.
When this happens, there will be star pieces on the ground which you can collect for a chance at some Purple Coins you can use for fishing.
A Starfall event is prefaced with a cutscene of the meteors falling. When this happens to you for the first time, which should be unavoidable unless something is wrong, the Celestial Rain trophy will unlock.
Collected all trophies.
Once you have acquired every other trophy in this Sonic Frontiers Trophy Guide, the “Trophies Complete!” platinum trophy will unlock.
