Dragon Warrior 3 completed quickly by using a bizarre glitch that allows the author to fill his inventory with useful items, manipulate his stats, and even add places to his return list! This allows most of the game to be skipped.

Thanks to this new method of item glitching, this is almost exactly nine minutes faster than the previous version of the run.

The author wrote detailed comments explaining this glitch.
