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 appear): sometimes the mask don'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 "first ending" run. You don't need any item to this ending but you need the secret key to take the shortcut and it's goty.

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

Warning: You can die against ghosts with the .wtf file.

feos: Judging...

CoolKirby: Removed branch name. Fastest ending runs are always any%, so no branch name is needed.
