This is one of my first TASes and I used only slow-mo and save states, so it's still improvable. One of the most important time savers should be the skip of the mask (the first time it appears): sometimes the mask doesn't drop flames and the screen isn't blocked, so it can save almost 6 seconds, but it's very rare and random.

This is the "true ending" run. You need the secret key, the spirit ring and the master's sword to go to the temple of sin.

There aren't many big tricks in this TAS, just think to always jump when you use the sword.

Warning: You can die against goombas in the cave with the .wtf file.

feos: Judging...
