  • kill less enemy as possible(sometimes it forced me to do)

  • use additional weapon as primary.

  • no death

  • pick power ups

  • fastest as possible.


this type of run is rarely seen. So i think this first run to be seen.

The idea came up from Feos that ng3 has most amount of enemy than ng1 or ng2. That it will be entertaining to see.


  • don't use (U) rom or it'll desync.

  • (j) rom is different .
Less enemy, damage per hit, item spawnage, enemy randomness.

  • damage is taken however to save time(Feos told me to do that anyway).


Mothrayas: Setting game name to the English name.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Rejecting due to poor viewer feedback. Despite the run (originally) being labeled "pacifist", the run appears to kill much more enemies than is needed, going against its own goals. The viewers did not enjoy that dozens of enemies are killed with subweapons in some stages despite the "pacifist" label.
