This is the sixth published movie of Dragon Warrior, a seemingly complex, but ultimately, fairly simple NES RPG. This is an improvement of 20.96 seconds from the previous run. The character completes his quest at Level 7. There are several things about this movie that might seem odd if one is not aware of them beforehand:

  • All unnecessary random encounters have been manipulated into not happening
  • The player dies several times in order to get transported back to the beginning
  • Action commands are often intentionally not entered as soon as possible to manipulate critical hits and such
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.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
