- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Takes damage to save time
- Forgoes warps
- Genre: Platform
Kid Chameleon is the story of a kid trapped in an arcade machine, where he has to traverse many different kinds of levels from different "games" and can transform into many types of characters. It is rather convoluted, with the ability to take many paths to the last level.

Instead of taking the fastest path, this movie takes the longest path possible without backtracking, but does so as quickly as possible. Several new tricks originated in this run that only recently found their way into the any%.

- Takes damage to save time
- Uses warps
- Genre: Platform
In this fast-paced platformer, our hero, Casey, is faced with a virtual reality game which seems to make its participants disappear; he must make use of the ability to change into a variety of different forms with diverse abilities to get to the bottom of the mystery.

This run aims for the fastest possible path through the game in real time, and so manipulates the score counter in a few instances.

This is an improvement of a minute and a half to the previously published (five year old) run in this category.

This movie has been obsoleted!

Click here to see the movie that obsoleted it.
This is a game based on the completely "unique" concept of an evil boss trying to take over/destroy/do whatever with the world, and despite the Earth being filled with about 7 billion occupants, you are the only one who can stop it.

At first glance it may seem odd that, although the game is two player, only one player is used, and that's Player 2. Player 2 was chosen because her aerial attack gives an enormous speed boost. It is also one of the few attacks in video games that operates on frame precision, so smashing out a 30Hz rapid-fire on the controller will lay the beatdown pretty quickly.

That, combined with the fact that half the enemies in this game are of the standard "walk around and shoot" variety, allow the heroine to zip through the game with total reckless abandon. Few games allow a TASer to do that, so this is a rare opportunity indeed.

The game is eerily similar to Megaman 7 and Megaman X. It even has pick-throwing miners.

This is a 47 second improvement over the previous movie by the use of a new trick to increase speed as well as other minor improvements. These are explained in the author's comments.
