Author's comments and explanations:
This is an improvement of my normal route by 3543 frames (about 59 seconds)

Main improvements are:

  • Slightly more damage taken.
  • Hitting Bosses twice with one Bone. (Which I couldn't get working on the Goat Boss for an odd reason.)
  • A few less save visits.
  • Way less lag by using a more up to date VBA.
  • Sliding before getting the Dash boots which is faster than speed walking with the DSS and saves me MP.
  • More precision by using Frame Advance rather than 6% speed like in my old movie.


  • Takes damage to save time.
  • Abuses a programming error in the game.
  • Manipulates Luck
  • Recorded on Nitsuja's VBA 9

I'm waiting for BoltR to finish his new Metroid Zero Mission movie..:P


Truncated: Putting it on accepted because it is entertaining and improves on a published movie.

Phil: I am taking care of it.

Phil: I've changed my mind. Sorry Ogreslayer.

Bisqwit: Processing.
