Metroid completed as fast as possible without holding back, and without concern for game sanity.

Uses a game restart sequence (up+a on the second controller) to save time in backtracking.

Much of this 34-second improvement comes from taking an unexpected route through Kraid's lair: the doors are tricked into teleporting Samus to different rooms with the help of the door glitch. Another substantial improvement came from using a new strategy in the statue room.

See Metroid Tricks for more information about the door glitch as well as other tips and tricks.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
