Reach Psi Cadet rank 100 by collecting all Psi-Orbs, Psi-Cards, Cobwebs, Figments, Emotional Baggage, and scavenger hunt items to unlock a bonus movie.

Use Levitation without having it equipped

Have three Psi powers equipped, none of them being Levitation. Then, double-jump, hold L1 to glide, then press X while gliding to grab the Levitation Ball. This will work just as if you are using it normally. Note: You must have completed "Milla's Dance Party" in order for this trick to work.

Claw TK attack

Once you have defeated the Lungfish and have entered his mind, your TK attack turns from a hand to a claw.

Hidden figments in Edgar Tegley's mind

While in Edgar Tegley's mind (with the dogs and bull), there are two figments that are difficult to find. They are not normally present, and you must unlock a way to find them. Take the window painting with you and place it where the guitar is located. It will no longer teleport you, but instead reveal a figment. Do the same thing at the location where you would place the vines to find the other hidden figment.

Easily complete "Black Velvetopia" level

When you are looking for the cards, defeat the wrestlers and obtain the cards (in any order). Once you have three of the cards, make sure you have your Levitation power maxed out by ranking up. Once you have the high jump levitation, go up to the top of the card tower where Edgar is located. Walk into the cards Edgar is working on so that they fly away. Then, activate your levitation power and go to the edge of the stable cards, then jump. You should activate the final Boss fight of El'Odio, and complete the level. This will save about fifteen minutes of running and jumping in the level.

Defeating Jasper

To defeat Jasper in Gloria's theater, use Pyrokinesis, Levitation, and whatever else desired. Use the Levitation Ball to float up the top where the lights are located. Jump and use the Levitation Float above the music note to get there. Use Pyrokinesis to light the candles and make Jasper dizzy. Go down and punch him until he is no longer dizzy. Repeat this to defeat him.

Defeating the Lungfish

To defeat the Lungfish in the first and second stages, whenever he blows out the yellow boxes, hit the one he starts to suck in. When in the final stage, stand by a clam. When he starts swinging the thing on his head, punch the clam shell, then punch him.

To defeat the Boss in Lungfishopolis, whenever he shoots the beam thing at you, activate the shield to make it go back at him.

Easy "Holiday Dinner" trophy

Sneak up on two different animals (for example, a bird and squirrel). Roast them with Pyrokinesis and eat the resulting meat. Note: This can be done with different blasts but must be in the same area. Consider doing this near the parking lot. Additionally, this must be done before completing the Brain Tumbler Experiment because the animals can only be found during the day.

Easy "Made Man" trophy

Immediately after completing Sasha's Shooting Gallery, go to the car park and talk to Maloof to get the "Made Man" trophy.

Easy "Math Is Hard" trophy

Successfully complete the following tasks during a single playthrough to achieve a Rank 101 and get the "Math Is Hard" trophy:

  • Complete the punching game in Basic Braining.
  • Find all 117 Psi cards and combine with Psi cores.
  • Find all 9 Psi challenge markers.

Note: There is a point in the game where you cannot go back after freeing Lili. Before doing this, make sure you have 18 Vaults, 45 Bags, 6 Psi Cards, and are at Rank 98. After freeing Lili, you can turn in cobwebs to the fortune teller.

Easy "Self Aware" trophy

Use Clairvoyance on different people, animals, and items and look at yourself to get the "Self Aware" trophy.

Easy "Stump Speech" trophy
