It would be pointless to describe The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past here, because this run has little to do with the game itself. Using glitches exclusive to the GBA version, Link rips a hole in the space-time-continuum, enters the Palace of the Four Swords, and finishes the game in just over 5 minutes.

This run improves the previous publication by 21.16 seconds, primarily through a new trick that ends input early, using buggy boomerangs to finish off the Dark Links.

Total movies: 2

If there's one problem with the SNES glitched run of this game, it's that it's over too quickly - there isn't enough time to enjoy the glitches. If you agree, this run is for you - it completes the Palace of the Four Swords available only in this GBA port of the game in a very bizarre fashion so glitchy that not even the game's palette retains any sense of normalcy.

This run improves the previous by just under a minute thanks to a new route.
