Noise Tank gang:
Successfully complete all Benten-cho levels with a Jet rank.
Poison Jam gang:
Successfully complete all Kogane-cho levels with a Jet rank.
Successfully complete all the Grind City levels with a Jet rank.
Pots (the Dog):
First, unlock all the bonus characters (Noise Tanks, Poison Jam, Love Shockers, and Goji). After completing the game, play the "Monster of Kogane" level before "Benten Boogie". After completing those levels, a Noise Tank will challenge you after Chapter 2. Defeat the Noise Tank Challenge and you can play as Pots.
Plague of frogs:
Start a new game. Complete Shibuya GG with a Jet ranking. Then, complete Love Trap with a Jet ranking. Finally, defeat the Love Attack with a Jet ranking. You should not be able to complete any more Love Shockers levels. After this, complete Benten Boogie with a Jet ranking. If done correctly, you should have a plague of frogs in your garage.
Jet Technique trial:
Stay skating in the zone you start in. For example, in Shabuyo-Cho you start at the bus terminal. The zone you start in is usually the easiest one to get the most points.
Instead of just messing around, find a way you can make a circle that you can just skate around in, getting points. For example, at the bus terminal, grind along the railings, board slide on the billboards, and jump to each obstacle until you get back where you started without falling. From there, go around and around repeatedly until you fall off. You will get hundreds of points.
If you are in range of a graffiti location and you have at least one can, spray away. You will get 500 points just for that.
Do not stop skating. You only have a limited amount of time.
Jet Graffiti trial:
Spray every single space, even the green arrows.
Use a character with a high graffiti gauge (Gum, Parana, or Yo-Yo). It will be harder, but you will get more points.
Jet Crush trial:
Do not bump into your rival. You will get hurt and slow down. Get out of your rival's way -- if they slam into you, you will the one that will get hurt.
Find ways of getting by your rival without getting hurt. You can jump or dash (both maneuvers if executed correctly can help you out more than you would suspect).
Find shortcuts. Some are obvious and some take a little more experimentation For example: In Shabuya-cho while racing Beat, before jumping of the bridge into the half pipe, get ahead by grabbing onto a bus.
Do not stop. One second could be the difference between a nitro and a jet. Timing is everything. Fail on one thing and you can get very far behind.
Stand atop any half pipe exept for the sewers in the Benten-cho levels. Stop, then very slowly walk over the edge of the halfpipe with any character that wears a skirt (for example, Gum, Mew, etc.) while rapidly pressing L. The camera will mysteriously zoom right up the characters skirt revealing their panties for no apparent reason.
