The balance in the magical world of Cefiro is supported by the prayers of the lovely princess Emerald. When the evil Sage Master imprisoned her, the existence of the entire world was endangered. Using her spiritual powers, the princess contacted three Japanese high-school girls, Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu, turned them into Magic Knights, and summoned them to Cefiro, where their goal is to save her and to restore the balance.

Magic Knight Rayearth is a game developed by Sega AM7 R&D Division and published by Working Designs (whilst upping the difficulty a notch and botching the translation in the process) in North America in November 1998, making it the final Sega Saturn game released in North America.

Mitjitsu improves the previous TAS by a tremendous 13 minutes and 58.1 seconds, mainly thanks to exploiting the infinite magic trick, allowing the game's most powerful spell to be used infinitely even when not meeting the required mana costs.

- Takes damage to save time
Twinkle Tale was released exclusively in Japan by an obscure publisher. The author describes it as "what you get when you combine top down Contra stages with Kingdom Hearts." It tells the tale of Saria the magician who must stop the Demon King with what sometimes appear to be weapons from Gradius.

This movie carefully exploits the game's mechanics to breeze through the levels and boss fights. You can read a full translation and get other information at its submission discussion

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- 2 Players
- Uses death to save time
- Final boss skip glitch
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
A typical streetfighting game which spawned the popular Streets of Rage trilogy. This game is rumored to have used the same engine as Golden Axe, which is why the A button summons magic (sort of) to damage all enemies on screen, instead of doing some sort of roundhouse, like almost all other beat'em ups.

Completed on the hardest difficulty.

Compared to the previous movie, this is over 10 minutes faster. Primarily due to the use of 2-players and a glitch that skips most of the last level.

Details can be found in the authors' comments.

See thus run replayed on console.

- 2 Players
- Genre: Platform
World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck is a platformer where a player controls either Mickey or Donald, or two players can use them together co-operatively. In the game Mickey and Donald are magicians who can turn enemies into harmless objects with the flourish of their capes. Defeating bosses unlocks new spells, like a flying carpet and underwater breathing.

In this run Mitjitsu uses both characters at once. A number of jumping glitches are possible. Frame perfect jumps off springs can get to triple normal height. At the end of the cape flourish animation the game briefly assumes the player is on the ground. This can't be used to jump, but the other character can jump off their head.

Duke Nukem 64 (1997) is a classic PC shooter ported to Nintendo 64 — unfortunately, in a heavily censored state, and without much concern for the game's performance.

As such, the movie is played on the easiest level in an attempt to reduce the framerate drop issues arising from big amounts of enemies shooting at Duke. However, the sheer speed the player is blasting through levels will likely confuse you regardless — we recommend reading the author's comments to understand all the tricks he used.

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.
