Achievement09 Hook onto a ceiling fan with the hookshot! Go to the Mail Room with the Hookshot Badge equipped and hook onto the fan. The Mail Room requires the Ice Hat to be accessed; thus, so does the achievement. Spaceship
Fueling the Feud Achievement10 Get a total of 2000 points in Battle of the Birds! Most of the main Acts can provide high point gains without items or badges from other areas. Train Rush is not recommended for gaining points in this regard due to its generally small point pool, but be sure to get a decent score on it anyway. Acts 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Battle of the Birds.

Achievement15 Defeat any boss with the 1-hit hero badge equipped! There are four viable bosses in the game, and they are found in the acts Down with the Mafia!, Award Ceremony, Toilet of Doom, and The Finale (Your Contract has Expired does not count for unknown reasons). It is recommended to fight the Mafia Boss unless you personally find one of the others easier, as he has simple attack patterns and low health. Further strategies for each boss are found on the achievement's page. Any Boss
Personally, I Prefer the Air Achievement16 Do 5 homing attacks in a row, without touching the ground! The segment before the Lava Cake in Alpine Skyline is recommended, as it is fairly simple to do this with the spiders there. Large crowds of enemies are also pretty straightforward. ANY
Pillow Fort Achievement17 Find Hat Kid's Secret Hideout! In the bedroom of Hat Kid's Spaceship, where the access to Subcon Forest can be found, there is a big pile of pillows. The player will need the Ice Hat to dive into the pillows and find the secret hideout. Once the player obtains the Ice Hat, a small pillar of light appears where the player needs to dive. Spaceship

Secret Intruder Achievement20 Make it through Dead Bird Studio without being seen at all! The player must be very careful when getting this achievement, as they need not only to remain uncaught but also to not accidentally wander into the C.A.W Agents' visions at all. The Ice Hat is highly recommended since its ability grants invisibility from the birds' sight, and the Time Stop Hat can be exceptionally useful for avoiding mobile birds if you have it. Dead Bird Studio (Act)
