Metroid completed as fast as possible without holding back, and without concern for the game's sanity.

A wealth of new tricks contribute to this 33 second improvement over the previous movie.

The run uses a game restart sequence (Up+A on the second controller) to save time in backtracking.

See Metroid Tricks for more information about the door glitch as well as other tips and tricks.

Andy Dick has made a video which plays this run on top of the game map. This provides a unique perspective on the door warping glitches.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
