Dragon Warrior is a seemingly complex but ultimately fairly simple NES RPG. The character completes his quest at Level 7.

In this seventh published movie of the game, RationalMonkey saves 34.77 seconds over the previous run by skipping Erdrick's armor. See the author's comments for details. 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 delayed intentionally in order 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.
