Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. Normally, this involves battling through sixteen levels, the last several of which are very difficult without the abilities gained from the scrolls.

This run forgoes all but two of the scrolls and heads directly for the final round, as opposed to the 100% run which finishes all of the stages and collects all the scrolls.

While this TAS appears to be slower than the previous movie, it is in fact an improvement of 1.76 seconds when only considering time saves during the levels, resulting from better optimisation and a new strategy at the final boss.


The second set of encodes feature a re-synced version of the TAS done on the Japanese version with the FM sound. Due to the shorter boot time, the main gameplay starts about 7.35 seconds earlier.

Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. This involves battling through sixteen levels, including four rounds of impossibly difficult "training".

It's a prime infuriating example of fake difficulty, as Hayato moves incredibly slowly and there are generally an impossibly large number of enemies on the screen at any given time (especially bad in the training stages, where one hit sends you back to the beginning).

This version of the run collects all the scrolls and bonus upgrades (as opposed to the any%).

While this TAS appears to be slower than the previous movie, it is in fact an improvement of 5.22 seconds when only considering time saves during the levels, resulting from overall better optimisation and a new strategy at the final boss (the same one as in the any% TAS).


The second set of encodes feature a re-synced version of the TAS done on the Japanese version with the FM sound. Due to the shorter boot time, the main gameplay starts about 7.37 seconds earlier.

Dega 1.16 (MAME core) is required to play back the movie properly.

This is an improvement of 1:35.46 over the previous any% run due to route changes and the use of some new glitches.

This version of the run collects all the scrolls and bonus upgrades (as opposed to the any%), and does so 14.46 seconds faster than previously due to some new tricks and route changes. It also visits one extra stage than in the previous run, so as to visit all of the game's stages (even if this extra stage has no bonuses or scrolls).
