Final Fantasy V is probably the least known of the Final Fantasy series on the SNES, because it was never published in the USA (PS1 port and GBA remake aside).

Through save corruption, game-breaking glitches and heavy glitch abuse eventually leading to arbitrary code execution, pirohiko ends the game in less than 11 minutes. Please read the author's comments for more details.

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.
