The Battle of Olympus (オリュンポスの戦い) is set in ancient Greece. A mortal man named Orpheus receives help from the gods and nymphs in his quest to save his lover Helene from Hades. People often compare this game with Zelda 2 because of its similar gameplay.

This is an improvement of 6.06 seconds over the previous movie, mainly thanks to the jump-turn technique and better olive farming. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

- Forgoes warps
- Forgoes major skip glitch
- Forgoes final boss skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Forgoes time-saving glitches
- Foregoes memory corruption
- Genre: Fighting
- Genre: Platform
This run has two players and does not use warps.

As always, a bug on level 11 prevents player 2 from moving, so he gets a game over for that level. Player 1 plays level 11 alone and player 2 comes back for level 12. This is a bug in Battletoads itself.

- 2 Players
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Altered Beast is originally an arcade game. In each level, the player must collect 3 powerups in order to transform into a powerful beast and fight the boss of that level. This game was one of the first games of the Sega Genesis system, and was first bundled with it.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on the number of enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed, using 2 characters to maximize this process. Almost 30 seconds were saved compared to the previous version.

- Pacifist version
- Uses warps
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Platform
Yo! Noid is a game centered around a short man in a rabbit suit making his way through New York City to defeat an identical man in a different color rabbit suit for a pizza reward. The game was conceived as part of a 1980s advertising campaign for Domino's Pizza. As anyone who has played the game knows, the game is quite difficult, since the controls are sluggish, one hit kills you, and the pizza bonus games at the end can be difficult to win if you don't pick up enough useful powerups.

With some movement glitches, warps, and luck manipulation, FODA beats this game very quickly. Not only that, to make the run even harder and more impressive, he doesn't kill any enemies.

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Street Fighter 2010, completely unrelated to the fighting game series, is a unique game to say the least. The player must go through a series of levels, collecting enough powerups to warp from one to the next.

To progress as quickly as possible, proper planning of which enemies to target and what order to target them in is imperative. As this planning is evident here, this run by foda is all the more impressive. Even one who is not familiar with the game should find this run very beautiful and a lot of fun to watch.

In the South Pacific, Master Higgins lives peacefully wearing only a grass skirt and a cap. That is, until the Evil Witch Doctor decides to capture Princess Leilani and hold her as his own. Now Higgins must rise to the task of saving her!

Selected quotes from the author:
This is a run made from a fan to other fans. It won't be impressive for people who haven't tried playing it seriously. But for people who know the game well, it's quite an amusing watch.

The most obvious way to save time in this game is to pick up as little fruit as possible and be close to dying from starvation when the level ends so the score-countdown will take less time.

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.
