Author's comments and explanations:
Valkyrie no Bouken - Toki no Kagi Densetsu (ワルキューレの冒険 - 時の鍵伝説) is a Action-adventure game published by Namco.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.2
  • Fastest time
  • Manipulates luck (Items, Level, attack and movement of mobs etc.)
  • Cancels encounter (by pressing pause or walking at a specific zone)
  • No continue


I wrote down some useful information below to watch the movie.

Necessary items to beat the game

Soul of Sandra, Super mantle, Ship, Super helmet, Super sword and Time key. Also three silver keys are required. You don't have to get Lamp, Gold key, Marco the Whale and Tiara.

Character making

You should choose a blood type, zodiac sign and color before starting the adventure. I chose these:
  • Zodiac sign (星座) - Aries (おひつじ座 : Can start with 64 HP)
  • Blood type (血液型) - AB (Increase HP (体力) and MP (知力) at random)
  • Color (色) - White (Not so important. so I chose the default one.)

The first continent

Got a potion (Restores 32 HP) and $10. The rate of getting any items rather than money from mobs including the boss is only about 3%. Found an axe which was hidden (Chops down trees, and even mountains when your HP is more than 127). Took a warp gate to the second continent.

The second continent

Got a soul of Sandra and used it at the Pyramids to enter.

The Pyramids

Got a silver key (opens gates and treasure boxes four times). Earned more than 900 exp. Opened a treasure box and got a super mantle (prevents desert and arctic damage). Took a ladder to the ground.

The second continent

Got $10. Had a rest at an inn. Restoring your MP requires at least $20. The level (レベル) jumped up to 4 and maximum HP became 128 (Only about 0.5% chance). Used the potion and took a warp gate to the first continent.

The first continent

HP was fully restored to 128 by casting the healing spell (まほう) twice which requires 40 MP in total. Opened a treasure box and got a ship. Got a potion. Went to a well.

The well

Got a silver key. Opened a treasure box and got a super helmet (reduces damage by half). Took a secret warp gate to the second continent.

The second continent

Used the potion to be able to cut down mountains. Made a glitched wharf (It can be created when you use your axe with the down key while facing a tree or mountain). Went to the last continent by ship.

The last continent and boss' castle

Entered the castle. Opened a treasure box and got a super sword (has maximum power). Beat the boss and got the time key. Put it in one of the key holes.

Special Thanks

To Valkyrie RTA players in Nicovideo. I couldn't have made this movie without their informative and cool videos.

Samsara: Judging.

Samsara: Hello, Takanawa, welcome to TASVideos. I always enjoy seeing Nico TASers coming here and submitting their work.

It's clear that a lot of work went into optimizing this run. The standout here was the luck manipulation and how tight and precise it was, but things like the glitched wharf and the route planning were also very nicely done. The game's a bit slow-paced and hard to understand if you're not familiar with it, and the posts in the thread seem to reflect that, so I'm going to hesitantly accept this to the Vault, though I believe it has a very good chance of being promoted to Moons post-publication.

Excellent work all around, Takanawa! I hope to see more TASes from you in the future.
