Ninja Gaiden involves an ultra superior ninja, capable of defying the laws of physics by climbing through walls, making dogs explode with his sword, and all while beating bad guys in record time.

This run is about 10 seconds faster than the prior submission due to the ninja thinking more like a ninja.

Ninja Gaiden is a classic action platformer that is known to be quite difficult.

This 4-second improvement to the previous movie is the fifth published movie of this game. Most notably, the third boss is improved.

NINJA外伝2 - The Dark Sword of Chaos completed even quicker -- about 12 seconds faster than the last version. Most of the time saved comes from the boss battles.

The ending demo and credits of this game are almost as long as the actual completion in this movie. The shadow clones are a unique gameplay element not seen elsewhere in this series.

NINJA外伝2 — The Dark Sword of Chaos, now completed about 4 seconds faster than the previous version by the same author, due to lots of small optimizations throughout every level.

The shadow clones are a unique gameplay element not seen elsewhere in the series, but in this movie they are used mainly to make extremely short work of bosses and entertain the viewer immediately afterwards.

The game has a rich plot with lots of cutscenes. Because of this, the author has also supplied the "story" version of the movie, which exhibits the same gameplay but includes all the cutscenes skipped by pressing start (which sum up to about 3/4 of the entire movie). It can be obtained here.
A good sense of humor is strongly advised to note the irony present in some of the later dialogues between characters.

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.
