Author's comments and explanations:
In this final installment of the famous Phantasy Star saga, our protagonist, while out on a routine assignment, uncovers evidence pointing to a sinister threat to the entire solar system. One thing leads to another and he and the rest of his party eventually find themselves fighting the root of all evil.

However, during his quest, Chaz realizes that evil has been around for quite some time. In fact, he even learns about those who, for the past 2000 years, fought evil. He even finds one of these warriors!

Yet another submission of Phantasy Star IV. This one stands out from the others as it's not about pure speed but rather about entertainment. Indeed, in this run, I show every imaginable reference to Phantasy Star I and II. Although they are show are subtitles on Youtube, here there are (from regular gameplay and from the ones I added)

Despite my doing all sidequests (hunter missions, robot upgrades, the climate tower on Dezoris and the Anger Tower on Rykros), I still aim for some speed.

And now, the bosses

Frame suggestion : 8345 (Lubetz' bust), 96335 (Alis' statue), 101446 (the Frademantl), 148994 (stating the name of the spaceship), 170118 (musk cat #1 who remembers Rune), 170633 (musk cat who can open a bottle), 170992 (Myau and the feeling of déjà vu), 230937 (Lashiec), 395326 (Propallus), 428794 (destruction)


DarkKobold: This run is pretty much the definition of an arbitrary goal. While well done, and many users appreciated it, it really doesn't fit into the content of the site. Rejecting for bad goal choice.

feos: This movie got quite a good feedback. Back when it was submitted it was even liked more than the any% run. The votes are rather positive as well. Accepting for Moons.
