The least-subtle ninja in history is back for a third entry in one of the hardest video game series ever.

Scumtron improves upon TheAxeMan's previous movie by over 18 seconds by using Up+A to cancel attack animations, subpixel optimization and faster wall climbing, among other small optimizations.

See this movie played back on a real console.

Ninja 外伝 (Gaiden) 3 revised by a lot. This time around TheAxeMan takes damage to speed things up, and utilizes the special weapons more efficiently (every weapon is used at least once). The bosses are also taken down a lot more aggressively by using some unorthodox techniques to increase your attack speed.

We recommend reading the author's comments for this movie - there's a lot of it. :)

So yeah i've been poking around in this game to get and finally got some few improvements. Stage 2 need some more investigation. I Gain 1 frame in 2-2a and 1 frame in 2-2b but later lost again to get that jump ball in 2-2d at optimal position(subpixel i think). Improvement on first stage :- 3 frames , 1 frame on 1-1a , two frame on boss

Glitch

Windmill star disappear
sometimes windmill star disappear if its being throw at wrong timing

Vaccum wave don't vanish
Very hard to pull off, In right time if Vaccum is use on wall as well as if Ryu's y velocity is in right speed ,vaccum will not vanish it will keep moving(but only one side)

Damage from wrong side
whenever Ryu attack the edge of screen the hitbox of the sword or ninpo will still comes out from other side Example:if the enemy is at Y position=50 at rightmost side of the screen then Ryu can kill it by attacking Y position=50 from leftmost side of the screen

Here is the .fm2

In correct timing If Ryu takes damage when entering Boss room ,He won't lost his Wide slash
