Tchia Trophy Guide and Road Map for PS4 & PS5
Welcome to our Tchia Trophy Guide. Tchia is an interesting little Zelda-like RPG. Set on a fictional island inspired by real-world New Caledonia, the game blends a mixture of “Windwaker” and “Breath of the Wild” gameplay to create a charming—yet short—open-world experience.
Navigation in the game isn’t quite as simple as using a minimap. You can’t see yourself on the map, but everything you will ever need to find or collect can be clearly marked on the map. You can then use surrounding landmarks as well as the in-game compass to navigate, making you appreciate and pay attention to your surroundings.
Overall, once you get the hang of finding your way around, Tchia offers a very enjoyable and peaceful trophy journey that players of all skill levels and ages can enjoy.
Phase One | Complete the Story
To begin with, it’s best to simply appreciate the story of Tchia. The game will start off fairly linear but then slowly open up as you progress. This smooth transition into navigating for yourself can really help you to get the hang of things.
From there, using the map in conjunction with the compass can help you to easily find your way to each of your objective locations. Every objective you receive will be clearly listed in the journal and you can see a quick tasklist by pressing . This will also bring up a minimap and your compass to help you navigate easier.
There are a selection of trophies that you’ll earn in this phase simply because they are unavoidable, but feel free to enjoy yourself, explore as much as you like, and visit any points of interest you see on the map. The more you complete now, the less you’ll need to clean up later!
Whenever you need to complete a Music Sequence with the Ukelele, do your best to complete it 100% without missing any notes. If you mess up, you can load the latest autosave to try again. This is to ensure you unlock the Shredder trophy without too much difficulty in the long run.
Another Semi-Missable trophy to look out for is Energy Saver. It requires you to burn three enemies at once with a single flaming object or explosion. This is Semi-Missable because once you have completed every Maano Camp, you will need to start a new game to get a shot at some enemies again.
Unmissable Story Trophies
The Journey Onwards
Reach the Endgame
After you’ve watched the game’s final cutscene, you will be given two final tasks. Complete just one of these tasks to officially enter the end-game and unlock the “The Journey Onwards” trophy.
Phase Two | Map Cleanup
With the main story complete, it’s time to switch focus in this second phase of our Tchia Trophy Guide, where we’ll mop up every Point of Interest and activity on the map. This is quite a lot of work and will take a long time, however, everything can fortunately be marked on the in-game map so you can find everything you’ll need within the actual game.
To begin with, at the start of this phase, I recommend travelling to all of the “Point of View” locations and shouting from them as they are already marked on your map. Shouting at every Point of Interest will earn you the Ahem Ahem trophy as well as marking all other Points of Interest on your map.
Once that’s done, tackle the map one quadrant at a time. The map is conveniently broken up into squares. Using the pin feature and your compass, visit every point of interest on the map and complete the objective there; be it a race challenge, a collectible to grab, a treasure chest, or anything else.
This phase of our Tchia Trophy Guide will end when you have reached 100% map completion. You can bring up the full map with and see how many of each point of interest remain via the tracker on the right-hand side.
Also, don’t forget the Semi-Missable Trophies Shredder and Energy Saver, which you can try to unlock again in this Phase if you don’t have them yet.
Map Cleanup Trophies
Shout from every Point Of View
As noted in the introduction to this phase, I highly recommend starting off this phase of our Tchia Trophy Guide by going to each of the Point of View icons that are marked on your map. Going to one of these locations and pressing will cause Tchia to shout from the vantage point, marking all nearby points of interest, activities, and collectibles on your map.
For this reason, it’s extremely beneficial to do these collectibles first. Once you have shouted from all 15 Point of View locations, the Ahem Ahem trophy will unlock.
Discover all the Campfires
Campfires are all marked on your map from the beginning of the game, but they have a padlock icon over them.
Campfires you have visited will not have this padlock icon and will be slightly brighter on the map.
To unlock the Happy Camper trophy, simply visit all 36 of these Campfire icons using the Pin feature on the Map and your Compass.
Discover all the Docks
Docks are all marked on your map from the beginning of the game, but they have a padlock icon over them. Docks you have visited will not have this padlock icon and will be slightly brighter on the map.
To unlock the Globe Trotter trophy, simply visit all 10 of these Dock icons using the Pin feature on the Map and your Compass.
Upgrade your Stamina to 120
To upgrade your stamina to level 120, you will need to find and eat all Stamina Fruit. Some Stamina Fruits are found under piles of fabric that you need to burn at Maano Camps, but the majority are just found dotted around the various islands.
Stamina Fruit can be found at yellow oval-shaped icons. Both Maano Camps and Stamina Fruit will be marked on your map when you use a Point of View. Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the Stamina Fruit and Soldier Camp icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass and complete them.
Those combined will only get you to around 108 Stamina, though. The remaining “Big Stamina Fruit” to get you to Level 12o are found inside Treasure Chests, so make sure you earn the Historian trophy!
Once you’ve eaten every stamina fruit, the Live Wire trophy will unlock.
Body and Soul
Upgrade your Soul-Meter to 10 slots
To upgrade your Soul-Meter to 10 slots, you will need to find and almost every Soul Fruit, but I recommend getting them all for the 100% Completion Trophy. All Soul Fruits are hidden inside the Totem Shrines that are dotted around the various islands.
To access a Totem Shrine, you need to craft the matching Totem at a Totem Sculpting Station. These can often be found in major settlement areas. You can see which totem is required for a temple by hovering over its icon on the map.
Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the Totem Shrine icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass. With the correct totem in sculpted and placed in your inventory, pull it out and drop it into the receptacle in front of the door. If the sculpture is accepted, the door will open and you can go inside.
Each Totem Shrine has a unique challenge to complete with a Soul Fruit at the end, which you can eat with .
Once you’ve eaten enough Soul Fruit, the Body and Soul trophy will unlock.
Find and open all the Treasure Chests
Treasure Chests are not “Valuables Chests.” Treasure Chests are unique chests that require a map and a key to open. They must be opened in a specific order, one after the other.
You will get your first Treasure Map as part of the story from Louise. You can access your current Treasure Map from the Map screen at any time by pressing .
Using the treasure map, find and open the first treasure chest to receive the key to the next chest along with your next treasure map. Keep this up and make your way from one chest to the next until you’ve opened all of them.
Once you’ve opened all 21 Treasure Chests, the Historian trophy will unlock!
Unlock every cosmetic items for Tchia and Boat
Cosmetic items for Tchia and her boat are both found in three places;
- At Cosmetic Stands, where they can be purchased in exchange for Pearls and Braided Trinkets. You will need all Pearls and Trinkets. They are clearly marked on your map when you Shout from Points of View. Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the collectible icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass and collect them. There are 80 Pearls, 180 Trinkets, and 12 Cosmetic Stands.
- In Claw Machines. There are two Claw Machines in Tchia, one in Aemoon, and another in Tingeting.
- In Valuables Chests, which are clearly marked on the map when you Shout from Points of View. Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the valuables chest icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass and collect them. There are 95 Valuables Chests.
After opening every treasure chest, collecting every Pearl and Trinket, buying the stock from every Cosmetic Stand (gift icons on the map), and winning every Gold Claw Machine Prize, you will have every single Cosmetic Item in the game.
Unlock every Soul-Melody
Soul Melodies are mystical Ukelele tunes you can play to affect the game or spawn useful things like Bombs. You can access Soul Melodies via and will have access to four from the beginning. You learn new songs by completing Rock Balancing activities.
Rock Balancing Challenges are clearly marked on your map when you use a nearby Point of View. Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the Rock Balancing Challenge icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass and complete the activity.
Once you’ve completed all 7 Rock Balancing activities (trackable from the map screen) you will have all of the Soul Melodies and the Audiophile trophy will unlock!
Clear all the Soldier Camps
Soldier Camps (called Maano Camps in-game) are bases dotted around the island. During the story, they are populated by fabric-based “Maano” creatures but once you’ve completed the story their place is taken by soldiers. To clear a Maano Camp, you need to use fire-based objects or explosives to burn all fabric piles, soldiers, and sentinels at the camp.
Soldier Camps are clearly marked on your map when you use a nearby Point of View. Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the Maano Camp icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass and complete the objectives.
Once you’ve completed the objectives at all 33 Maano Camps (trackable from the map screen) the Liberator trophy will unlock!
Make Sure you earn Energy Saver before completing this trophy, otherwise, there’ll be no enemies left and you will need to start a short new game.
Destroy every Meavora Statue
Meavora Statues are clearly marked on your map when you use a nearby Point of View.
Once you have unlocked Ahem Ahem, go to each of the Meavora Statue icons using the Pin Feature on the Map in conjunction with your Compass and destroy them using explosives.
Once you’ve blown up every single Meavora Statue (trackable from the map screen) the Iconoclast trophy will unlock!
Ça de Wizz!
Reach 100% Game Completion
This trophy is buggy, but still achievable. It may not unlock as it should when your Journal Completion reaches 100%. However, I was able to trigger the unlock myself (and others have reported the same) by saving the game again in an empty slot. The trophy then unlocked immediately.
Reaching 100% Game Completion will require you to:
- Unlock Happy Camper
- Unlock Globe Trotter
- Unlock Live Wire
- Unlock Body and Soul
- Unlock Historian
- Unlock Fashion Victim — includes collecting all Pearls, Valuables Chests, & Trinkets.
- Unlock Audiophile
- Unlock Liberator
- Unlock Iconoclast
- Unlock Ahem Ahem
- Gold Trophies in All 16 Race Challenges (Green Tick on Map when achieved)
- Gold Trophies in All 5 Diving Board Challenges (Green Tick on Map when achieved)
- Gold Trophies in All 5 Shooting Range Challenges (Green Tick on Map when achieved)
- 100% Journal Completion
- This means:
- Complete the Story
- Meet all Key Characters (automatic)
- Discover all Items & Abilities (automatic)
- Complete All Activities — Each one is trackable from the Map also.
- Visit All Landmarks — Should happen naturally as you complete activities.
- Discover All Fauna — You just need to have seen each animal in the Fauna page. Should happen naturally. Make a point to approach unfamiliar animals, though, especially underwater between the islands.
- Discover All Flora — You just need to have seen each plant in the Flora page. Should happen naturally.
Once you have done all of the above, the Journal Page of the menu should say 100% completion, and the “Ça de Wizz!” trophy should unlock.
Phase Three | Misc Cleanup
With the game 100% complete, you will move smoothly into Phase Three of our Tchia Trophy Guide fully equipped for everything that remains. The majority of the trophies below will likely have unlocked naturally or will require little effort to finish off for the most part.
There are a couple of Semi-Missable Trophies (Shredder and Energy Saver) that might require a short second playthrough via Chapter Select if you don’t have them by now, but nothing too extraneous.
Misc Cleanup Trophies
In a Pinch
Win something in a Claw Machine
When you complete a Challenge such as a Slingshot Range challenge, you will receive a trophy in your inventory depending on how well you did in the Challenge.
You can then take your trophies to any claw machine, where you’ll see a box for depositing trophies. Trophies, regardless of their color or value, will provide 3 plays.
When you have some plays, interact with the claw machine to move the claw to the right. Press it again to start moving the claw towards the back of the machine. And finally, once the claw is over a ball, interact with the claw machine one last time to make the claw drop and (hopefully) grab the ball.
If you successfully receive a prize from the claw machine, the In a Pinch trophy will unlock.
The claw projects a red target directly below it to help you aim it more accurately.
Wear the Umbrella Hat
By this point in our Tchia Trophy Guide, you should already have every clothing item in the game. That said, the Umbrella Hat is in a Claw Machine in a settlement called Tingeting.
Once you win the hat from the Claw Machine, equip it at any Campsite and the Fashion Faux-Pas trophy will unlock!
Wear the complete Pirate outfit and boat style
By this point in our Tchia Trophy Guide, you should already have every clothing item in the game. That said, the Pirate Outfit can be bought from a Cosmetic Station in Aemoon in exchange for 5 Pearls and 20 Braided Trinkets.
As well, the Pirate Boat Style can be purchased for 5 Pearls and 20 Braided Trinkets at a Cosmetic Station next to the Dock in Lai.
Once you have all of the items, equip the Pirate clothing items you purchased at any Campsite. Then, go to a Dock, equip the Pirate Boat Style items and the “Arrr!” trophy will unlock!
Pirate Clothing Items:
- Pirate Coat
- Pirate Pants
- Pirate Boots
- Pirate Hat
Pirate Boat Style Items:
- Jolly Roger Flag
- Jolly Roger Sails
- I also had Black Paint equipped for both parts of the boat, but I’m unsure if that’s required!
Wear the complete Crab outfit
By this point in our Tchia Trophy Guide, you should already have every clothing item in the game. That said, the Crab Outfit can be purchased from a Cosmetic Station next to the Docks in a settlement called Tingeting. It will cost you 10 Pearls and 15 Braided Trinkets.
Once you have the outfit, equip it at any Campsite and the Snip Snip trophy will unlock!
Score 100% in any Music Sequence
To unlock the “Shredder” trophy, you need to complete any Ukelele music sequence with 100% completion. This means hitting every note. You can make mistakes, as long as every note is hit.
The easiest song to do this on is the very first one with Trey in Chapter II. If you mess it up, you can press and then load the last autosave to retry it until you get 100% completion and unlock the trophy!
This can be done on any other Ukelele music sequence, but cannot be unlocked when using any other instrument.
As far as I know, you cannot replay Music Sequences, so if you go through the entire game without ever unlocking this trophy, you will need to use Chapter Select to replay the first ukelele music sequence with Trey in Chapter Two and farm it for the trophy.
Shoot down a flying bird with the Slingshot
The Clay Pigeon Trophy can essentially be unlocked at any time. Just look for a bird flying through the air, take aim with , and then fire with . If you hit the bird, the trophy will unlock.
It is worth noting that you can slow time by holding in mid-air. So if you jump with just before taking aim with , time will slow, allowing you to make the shot easier.
Burn 3 enemies at once with a single object or explosion
The Energy Saver trophy is fairly easy to pull off with some minor planning, but if you manage to go the entire game without unlocking it, you won’t be able to find enemies again once every Maano Camp has been cleared out. In that event, you’ll need to use Chapter Select to replay the game in an earlier state.
To unlock Energy Saver, you will need to hit three enemies with a single explosion or fire blast. The best way to do this is to possess a fuel tank, oil lamp, or other such explosive and then aggravate three soldiers at once.
With them aggravated, bait them all to one single spot and then while they’re all close together, either Soul Throw ( + ) the explosive at them or hold to ignite yourself and take them all out.
If you’re successful in defeating three enemies simultaneously, the trophy will unlock!
Soul-Jump into an object right after Soul-Throwing it
One of the best ways to get around in Tchia, is to possess an inanimate object, soul-throw it, and then possess it again to be carried through the air. This can be tricky to pull off at first, but you’ll be doing this all the time after not too long.
To begin, find an inanimate object like a rock. Aim at it while holding and then hit to possess it. While possessing an inanimate object, you can “Soul-Throw” it by holding to aim and then pressing to project yourself out of the object, sending it soaring—at speed—in the direction you aimed. If you immediately hold and aim at the mid-air object, you can possess it again by hitting .
If you’re fast enough, the Soul-Cannon trophy will unlock immediately. If not, keep trying. Often, even if you possess the object correctly after throwing it, the trophy won’t unlock unless you re-possess the object very soon after throwing it.
Find and Soul-Jump into Pwi Dua's hand
Before you can unlock the “Thing” trophy, you must have completed the story. Once you’ve done so, which you definitely should have by this point in our Tchia Trophy Guide, return to the major settlement called “Aemoon” on the Madra Noj island.
From there, go to the large “Ga Ngazo” building but turn left on your way up the main path to reach a Helipad just southwest of the large building.
In the truckbed there (at the location shown above) you will find a hand.
Hold , aim at the hand, and then press to possess it. The “Thing” trophy will immediately unlock.
Collect all Trophies
After collecting every trophy in this Tchia Trophy Guide, the "New Caledonian " Platinum Trophy will unlock. Congratulations!
