The trials of the Penitent One continue as he once again plunges into the endless struggle against the Miracle. The follow-up to the first Blasphemous changes up a few aspects of the first game but retains that level of mystery and intrigue on top of the nail-biting combat and difficult-as-sin boss encounters.
In this Blasphemous II trophy guide, I’ll give you some helpful tips for earning the various trophies you’ll need to get the coveted Platinum trophy. Like most 2D action games, it won’t take you too long to all the trophies, even through multiple runs. Thankfully, the combat and platforming are just as good as ever. Maybe even better.
There are 46 trophies to collect throughout the game:
1 Platinum trophy
2 Gold trophies
14 Silver trophies
29 Bronze trophies

The Platinum run for Blasphemous II is not an arduous task, no matter how intimidating the list of collectibles may appear. If we’re not talking about speed runs or anything close to that, then I’d say you can comfortably get the Platinum in more or less 15 hours. But if you know all the locations for all the collectibles and secrets, there’s a very good chance that you can cut that time by nearly half.
The most peculiar thing about this trophy run is that the Gold trophies are acquired after getting both endings. The Silver trophies are mostly for defeating bosses and getting 100% on the game. The Bronze trophies are the most time-consuming ones as there are collections upon collections that you’ll need to complete. Some are even connected to each other. I’ll focus this article on which collectibles you need to be aware of.
There are 65 types of enemies in the game. Killing at least one of each unlocks the Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition! Bronze trophy. It is best to just kill everything you encounter just to be sure.
The This is Blasphemy Bronze trophy seems like a hassle but a combination of The Anointed One, Thurifer, The Unwavering One, Tirso, The Traitor, Castula, The Purified One, and The Thirst might be enough to get you above the necessary damage threshold. Pair them with a fully upgraded Veredicto, and you are ready to deal some major damage.
To get the trophy, look for a group of enemies with low health, use up all your flasks, max out your HP, lower guilt, and ignite Venedicto by pressing R1. Keep defeating enemies until you get a critical hit. At which point, the trophy will appear.
While there are places where you can hit a bell, the one in the City of Blessed Name is perfect for the Happy New Year! Bronze trophy. You’ll need to go to the top room in the area using grapple points and strike the bell 12 times for the trophy to drop. You can do this at the same time you’re looking for hidden symbols.
A Sharp Rendezvous Silver trophy starts immediately at the start of the game. It is a time trial run to see if you can reach the room of the Sentinel of the Emery in under 30 minutes. (Yes, that involves fighting bosses in between.) It is located in Beneath Her Sacred Grounds. You’ll have to pass by Mother of Mothers and go down further. You may want to plan well in advance for this one.
Prayers act like sub-weapons and spells. To get the Acta, Non Verba Bronze trophy, you’ll need to collect 17 Prayers from different sources. Most of these you can find inside chests while you can purchase others from the Moving Merchant for a price.
Rosary Beads work on your stats. When paired with the right Altarpiece Figure, will provide boosts. There are 27 Rosary Beads scattered around the map. Collecting them all unlocks the Full Devotion Bronze trophy. By collecting all the figures, you’ll unlock the Weight of Penance Bronze trophy.
You can check the list below to see which ones you still need for the complete collection.
The Partisan, Viridiana, the Flagellant, the Scribe, and the Bishop can be bought from the shop in the City of the Blessed Name
The Choirmaster and Jaloque can be bought from the Moving Merchant
The Ecstatic Novice
The Purified One
The Demented One
The Unwavering One (Equip the Maiden Altarpiece until it breaks. Have it repaired 3 times to get the Unwavering One)
Cierzo (Chariot NPC)
The Anointed One, Veteran One, and Punished One can be purchased later on.
Grebal (after finding all Cherubs)
The Cobija Mayor (after returning all 9 sisters)
The Confessor, The Woman of the Stolen Face, Castula, Trifon, Proximo, the Selfless Father, and Crisanta are acquired by giving Remembrances to the Sculptor
You will unlock The Work of a Master Bronze trophy by bringing the following Remembrances to the Sculptor. (This also ties in with the Two Old Ones Eating Soup Bronze trophy.)
Remembrance of Regula
Remembrance of Castula & Trifon
Remembrance of the Confessor
Remembrance of Cesareo
Remembrance of Proximo
Remembrance of Crisanta
The No Cherub Left Behind trophy is one that’ll take you quite a bit of time. It requires you to free 33 of Proximo’s brothers. They come in the form of decorative capsules and you’ll need to break them to free the Cherub. The problem you’ll run into most often is the fact that some may look to be out of reach. When you see something like that, chances are you are missing a tool or ability to get you in the right position to break the capsules.
There are 9 hidden Cobijada sisters to collect to unlock the Hide and Seek Bronze trophy. They are usually hidden behind walls that you’ll need to destroy. But sometimes they can be out on the map, somewhere out of reach but within earshot. The key is listening for soft whispers. That’s how you know you are close to one of them.
Below are general areas where they can be found:
Sacred Entombments (2 hidden there)
Palace of Embroideries
Grilles and Ruin
Choir of Thorns (2 hidden there)
Mother of Mothers
Repose of the Silent One
The Severed Tower
The same also applies to the Still Among Us Bronze trophy and collecting all 10 of the hidden symbols, but you’ll first need to get the “Chime of the Twisted One” Prayer from Mother of Mothers to reveal hidden symbols.
You can then check the following locations for each of them:
Repose of the Silent One
City of the Blessed Name
Mother of Mothers
Sea of Ink
Crown of Towers
Palace of Embroideries
Aqueduct of the Costales
Choirs of Thorns
And finally, by completing 100% of the game, you’ll unlock the True Martyrdom Silver trophy. A well-deserved title, if you ask me. The thing about the collectibles is that you can mark their locations on the map and save them for later playthroughs. If done correctly, it can save so much time when you’re going for that final sweep with all the abilities you now possess. Happy hunting, trophy hunters.
