Author's comments and explanations:
Going for a fastest time, saving a lot of time by completely skipping training sessions. As per the instruction manual it's possible to skip training by pushing the D button in any direction and button 1 or 2 when the description comes up on screen. Using a glitch by getting in close enough and almost going beyond Drago in order to easily beat him without him hitting back.


Fog: Replaced submission with spiked inputs, as well as removing the branch name.

Also, judging.

Fog: This is an interesting run, since it skips the training sections of the game. However, the actual fights for fights one and three are slower in game time compared to the previous publication. This brings up a rare situation for obsoletion:

"In rare cases, there will be a sloppier movie that is faster than a more optimized movie due to the use of a major skip discovery. In this case, the faster of the two movies is preferred"

Despite the actual fights being slower than the previous publication, this is indeed the faster movie because it skips the training sections of the game.

Accepting to Vault as an improvement to the previous publication.
