Author's comments and explanations:
This is a TAS of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! by DJ Incendration. It aims for the fastest KO possible, so you won't see him go down for a 3rd time in any round. I'm sorry if you don't like the goal; but think of this is the LegendOfMart TAS.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.2.3 (Win32)
  • Aims for fastest in-game time
  • Manipulates luck!!


Hello everyone! This is DJ Incendration. I'm a blind teenage speedrunner/TASer. I've been trying to make submittable/acceptable TASes of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Final Fantasy 1 (Japan). This is the fastest that anyone's EVER KO'd Mike Tyson without the use of cheats. I'm really sorry if you're not happy with it and think it's some kind of joke... it's not! Now onto the run itself:

Stage by stage comments

Round 1:

For the first 1:30 of Round 1, Tyson throws instant-knockdown "Dynamite Punches". You'll see me do proper punches (Mac throws left if Mike throws a right), but no delay as if we were TKOing him in the first round. We're going for fastest KO here, so no biggy. I opt not to knock him down a third time in Round 1, or KO wouldn't happen: just a round 1 TKO!

Round 2:

For the first 30 seconds, Mike will throw his Wink punches. I wanted to see how many he could do... I didn't want to take damage and have to get knocked the heck down. You need full health for KOs to even be possible.

Round 3:

I get two stars, duck his punch, and then STAR PUNCH!! He'll get up on the count of 1. That's the absolute best for you, you know why? 'Cause even though he gets up with full health, 1 single star will knock his butt down again! It is random whether he stays down or not, but this time he did! YAY!!!!

Other comments:

Many thanks go out to:
  • Phil for making his Last Boss only TASes
  • adelikat and McHazard: for inspiring me to do a TAS of this game
  • mPap, zallard1, sinister1, ouijawii and summoningsalt: for their wonderful SS runs and tutorial videos
  • All of you who like the run and think that the TAS was well done: for watching this run and giving me feedback
I think this's as good as it gets for KOs on Kid Dynamite. Have a great time watching the run!

GoddessMaria: Judging.

GoddessMaria: Hello DJ Incendration and welcome to TASVideos! Unfortunately, this submission breaks site rules which is that a submission must complete the game without the usage of passwords. Using a password to skip levels does not count as Completing/Beating the Game. Not only that, but your submission is also quite improvable in a number of areas as mentioned in the submission thread. For these reasons, I am rejecting this submission.

Keep going at it!

DJ Incendration: Shucks, I couldn't replace submission file in time. Also, why is it that the Tyson only runs were published, yet this isn't?
