Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game isn’t a stroll in Hillcrest Park. As you scrap through intense levels filled with kung-fu hipsters, hazards aplenty, and Ramona’s 7 evil ex-boyfriends, you’ll come across a variety of shops and items to spend your hard-earned coins on.

If you’re going to defeat the League of Evil Exes, then you’ll have to build up your stats by buying as many character-boosting items from stores as you can.

Picking up items increases your character’s Strength, Speed, Will Power, and Defence. Increasing your Health, Guts Points, attacking capability and damage, while reducing the amount of punishment you receive from enemies, is vital to your success in defeating the League, and a lot of new players quickly hit a brick wall by neglecting items.

Here are the effects of every item you can find at the shops in Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game, how much they cost, and where you can add them to your inventory.

We’ll also point you in the direction of the few secret shops you can uncover throughout the game. These are where you’ll find many powerful items which make a huge difference to your experience.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game Shops

It’s now been more than a full decade since, in the mysterious land of Toronto, Canada, Scott Pilgrim was dating a high-schooler, and all of the shop locations from the original release of the game remain intact.

There are two main types of items that you can collect:

  • ”To-Go” Snack Items
  • Stat-boosting Items

Most of the items in Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game restore your health and Guts, give you more experience points, and increase your characters’ stats.

However, there are certain, smaller, snacks that you can take with you once you leave a shop.

These items restore your health and save you from death when your points reach 0. They tend to be cheaper than other items, but are invaluable to stock up on before you take on a new level.

Return to the shopping street often to pick up a snack.

Items you can’t take “To Go” tend to be more expensive and more powerful, but raise your stats to a greater degree.

You have 4 stats to manage:

  • Strength – Increases the damage you deal to enemies
  • Defence – Reduces incoming damage from enemies, increases your HP, increases the amount of hits you can take before you’re stunned
  • Will Power – Raises your maximum Guts Points which revive you when your HP reaches 0, increases the strength of your super attacks
  • Speed – Increases speed of movement, attacks, and how quickly you recover from the floor

If you’re struggling to progress, invest in some of the stat-boosting items below and the game will become much more manageable.

Remember, you can buy more than one of the same item to get its effects a second time – which is great for stacking boosts of a stat you specifically want to increase.

Scott Pilgrim Game Level 1 Shops – Shopping District

In the second part of the first level, you’ll reach the Shopping District. This is an area you’ll return to many times throughout your time with Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game, since it’s where you’ll have the easiest access to useful items.

There are 7 shops along the main street, each with their own niche.

No Account Video

The first shop, No Account Video, is a special one. You can’t rent any more videos until you pay off Scott’s hefty late fees, but once you do, you have access to the cheapest and best stat buffs in the game.

Start saving if you want to take advantage, but you can always grind the funds out later once you have a feel for the game.

Wallace’s Mystery Shop – Scott Pilgrim Game Secret Shop

After the main shopping district street, and after you’ve been ambushed at the bus stop, you’ll enter a traffic tunnel.

Along the lower level, you’ll see a panel marked with a sub-space highway star.

It’s here that you’ll find the game’s first secret shop: Wallace’s Mystery Shop.

The items he stocks are expensive, but well worth the investment for a huge boost to your stats.

In the early game, I’d recommend the Bionic arm to really give your strength a boost so you can make some headway through the rest of the levels.

You’ll see two girls standing outside right at the beginning of the level.

Scott Pilgrim Game Level 4 Shop – The Frying Tengu

The Frying Tengu is in the second part of level 4, after you’ve fought towards Roxie on top of the Transit bus.

The entrance to the shop has a pig’s head with arrows pointing towards it.

Scott Pilgrim Game Level 5 Shop – Scott’s Dad’s BBQ

Scott’s Dad’s BBQ is probably the easiest shop to miss in the whole game.

It’s found on the Fire Escape after you crash your way out of the Halloween Party.

As you fight down the walkway, you’ll come to a door with a welcome mat after a couple of battles. If you reach the stairs going up, you’ve gone too far.

Scott Pilgrim Game Level 6 Shop – Mobile’s Secret House

The second secret shop in Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game is also worth a visit.

For just under $50, it unlocks your character’s second tech attack – a powerful move that helps with pesky late-game enemies who’re always on the defensive.

To find Mobile’s Secret House, play through the park level until you reach a clearing with a key inside of an anvil.

On the next screen, you’ll see Wallace, Other Scott, and a couple more of Wallace’s friends standing around a star shaped thicket of trees and bushes.

Walk through the middle of where they’re standing and you’ll find the secret shop with Stacy and Mobile.
