- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
In X-Men 2: Clone Wars, the alien race Phalanx invades the earth and the X-Men and some X-Women try to stop them.

You get to choose which X-Man to play every stage as. Most of the time Nightcrawler is used because he has the highest movement speed. Second in command is Wolverine because he has the second highest speed and also deals a ton of damage.

The game is unique in the regard that it starts as soon as you power on your console. No SEGA logo, no title screen, no character select. Normally the game pseudorandomly gives you Beast, but changing the types of controllers (3- or 6-button) throws off the start-up timing enough that a faster character can be gotten.

This movie is 5:05.28 minutes shorter than the previous publication thanks to a variety of new tricks explained in the authors' comments.

"Streets of Rage 2" is an excellent Beat-'Em-Up game with an extraordinary soundtrack composed by Yuzo Koshiro. This run is played with Max and Skate on Mania difficulty.

The author, Sonikkustar, has discovered some new glitches and used 2 players to improve 4:56.96 over the previous run.

- 100% completion
- Best ending
- Takes damage to save time
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
The kingdom of Zebulos is once again attacked, this time by the neighboring Gedol Empire, whose ruler King Gedol decides that he can kidnap Princess Cherry as Bowser can kidnap Princess Toadstool. The rescuing hero, Sparkster, thinks that espionage is boring. So instead of infiltrating the Gedol empire by stealth, he goes in sword swinging and jetpack blazing, cutting down swaths of whatever poor lizardmen decide to get in his way.

This game is the official sequel to Rocket Knight Adventures, whereas the SNES version with the same title is some sort of spinoff. Although the control is sluggish compared to the other two games, the author generally keeps the speed and pace fast, and exploits a bunch of tricks that make some bosses fall very, very fast.

This is a 42 second improvement to the previous movie by Ferret Warlord.

- Genre: Platform
In this special episode of Looney Tunes, Bugs, Daffy, Tweety, Porky, Taz, Speedy Gonzales, and the Road Runner decide to rip off popular games such as Atomic Runner, Sonic the Hedgehog & Gradius. They do this by going through this Sunsoft classic as fast as possible so that they don't die from all of the ripoffs.

This has led to even stranger results than the old run, clearing five and a half minutes thanks to a glitch that allows for skipping several levels.

Some people have interesting fantasies, but Super Fantasy Zone isn't one of them. Here you get to see a flying egg with legs demolish some weird looking bosses in a matter of seconds.

- Major skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
In a normal playthrough, this game is quite long. You must save four family members then progress to the final area to complete the game.

However, the authors use a glitch to skip directly to the final area, skipping 4/5ths of the game; in addition, several new glitches allow more of the final area to be skipped.

This new movie improves upon the previous movie by about 13 seconds.

Puggsy is the story of an alien who makes a pit stop on a planet creatively called The Planet, only to have his spacecraft stolen by the raccoon natives!

In order to get Puggsy's ride back, Sonikkustar abuses the impressive physics engine and the variety of puzzle-solving items dotted around the levels, thrashing the raccoons in record time!

Although one could certainly crack a joke about the idea of a platformer based on McDonald's characters, the joke is quickly stifled by the fact that this game is made by Treasure, known for their entertaining platformers and shooters. A nonsensical plot involving a treasure map and aliens on the moon is quickly discarded in favor of entertaining and hilarious platform antics.

A short TAS featuring an absurdly fast character with bad sound effects in a broken game. This version is over 2 minutes faster than the previous version due to a warp glitch. This glitch allows the player to start a level at the same X and Y coordinates as the player had when the previous level ended.

Quartet is a fairly basic run-and-gun platformer, with little in the way of objectives besides "kill the bosses" and "find the exit". Although the total run time is longer than the previous publication, the run is 1.73 seconds faster when not taking into account the SMS BIOS thanks to some small optimizations throughout the run.

Decap Attack is a Genesis exclusive game starring the mummy Chuck D. Head who's on a quest to stop an underworld army. To do so, Chuck must overcome several dangers, such as clever fishes, seals with sunglasses, and maniac bulldozers. At his disposal, Chuck has several ability-enhancing potions, as well as a spare skull to chuck at his enemies.

This is a 29 second improvement over the previous run of this game.

Psycho Fox is about furry animals out to stop the evil Madfox Daimyojin, using their trusty bird friend as a baseball to knock out enemies. This all happens in a blink of an eye, so watch closely! Again, Tiger is the fastest one and is used ASAP.

This run beats the previous run by 8.1 seconds, thanks to abusing the console's pause button to reduce load times. For more details, please read the authors' comments.

In Vigilante, you are a tough lone hero fighting to save his girlfriend, Madonna, from a dangerous gang called the Skinheads. The unnamed hero can use his fists and feet to beat up his foes, as well as bullet-breaking nunchucks he can pick up along the way.

The author, Sonikkustar, lets nothing stop him as he tears through every Skinhead and rescues Madonna in record time.
