Award - PSX TAS of 2016
This version of Mega Man X3, released only in Japan, has a glitch which allows you to access Dr. Doppler's fortress without actually beating any of his Robot Masters. This glitch permits Hetfield90 and nrg_zam to take a drastically different route from the SNES version, popping into Doppler 1 and Doppler 2 after only three Robot Master stages (and Vile's Factory) to get the Z-Saber far earlier than should be possible.

(Theoretically you can get the Z-Saber with only two defeated Robot Masters; from a speedrun perspective, however, once you finish Vile's Factory, it makes more sense to finish the stage you accessed it from than to game over and return to the map.)

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.
