How to Unlock NegaScott

NegaScott isn’t just the boss in World 6; he can also be one of the playable characters if you unlock him. To do this, you must complete the Story Mode with Scott, Kim, Stills, and Ramona. This must be done with each character in the Player One slot in Story Mode. You can still play through the Story Mode in multiplayer, but the game will only count the completion for whichever character was in the first player slot. Therefore, if you’re playing two-player story mode with Player One as Scott and Player Two as Kim and you complete it together, the game will only count it as having completed the Story Mode with Scott.

Once you’ve unlocked NegaScott, you’ll be able to use him just like any other character. And like those other characters, NegaScott has two Tech Attacks. Tech Attack 1 is learned at level 16. The secret Tech Attack 2 needs to be purchased from Mobile’s Secret House in World 6. This allows you to use NegaScott’s fireballs!

How to Unlock Mr. Chau

Mr. Chau is one of the secret characters that can be unlocked in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition. Though he isn’t a playable character like the others in the character selection screen, he is still someone worth unlocking. Unlocking Mr. Chau replaces Knives Chau with him as your character’s Striker instead. Calling Mr. Chau will result in a much stronger assist than calling in Knives.


Unfortunately, unlocking Mr. Chau is random. As you play through the Story Mode, keep a lookout for the appearance of Mr. Chau’s sprite in the world map. He’ll look like a sharply dressed man in a black suit. Mr Chau usually appears on the map sometime after a character has completed World 2.

When you approach him, it’ll immediately trigger a boss fight against him. If you beat him in a fight, Mr. Chau will be unlocked for that character. This means that each character must encounter Mr. Chau and defeat him individually. If you’re unable to defeat him, Mr. Chao will vanish and reappear randomly at another time.

Just like when completing the Story Mode to unlock NegaScott, if you’re playing multiplayer and defeat Mr. Chau, only the character in the Player One slot will have unlocked Mr. Chau and be able to use him.

How to Unlock Joseph’s Bedroom (The Studio)

Joseph’s Bedroom is a secret location in Story Mode that allows you to access all the music and sound effects in the game. To unlock it, you must enter a code while on the map screen. After the code has been entered, the path left of World 1 will open, and you’ll be able to reach Joseph’s Bedroom.

The codes below were sourced from Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Wiki.

  • While on the map screen in Story Mode input the following code:
    • Playstation: L1, L1, L1, R1, R1, R1, L1, R1
    • Nintendo Switch: L, L, L, R, R, R, L, R
    • Xbox: LB, LB, LB, RB, RB, RB, LB, RB
