- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Shooter
In this game, some short fat guy decides to prove that the police as well as Batman are incapable of doing their jobs. So he steals Batman's outfit, some of his toys, and brings along with himself advanced military weapon prototypes to wipe out the Joker once and for all till the next game, and save Gotham city.

This run starts off with walking by enemies, showing how incompetent criminals are at firing guns. It proceeds to aerial combat a bit reminiscent of Gradius, further demonstrating that even when criminals fire, their weapons are no match for Batman's Batwing, even when piloted by a Batman impostor. The big finale here shows that as evil as the Joker is, he like all others cannot withstand rocket grenades indefinitely.

This game, the second in the series, is the direct sequel to Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord. Here, the heroes thoroughly explore a dungeon to collect five pieces of the mystical equipment of the Knight of Diamonds to trade for the "Staff of Gnilda" to save the kingdom. With the aid of heavy luck manipulation, the average viewer will have absolutely no idea what is going on as the heroes blaze through the dungeon, score every critical hit known to adventurer-kind, and walk away from this normally hours-long game in the span of two minutes.

A bot was used to create large portions of this run; as such, the rerecord count has been removed from the submission entry.

This is an improvement of 90 frames from the previous movie done by the same author.

- Major skip glitch
- Uses a game restart sequence
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Although Legacy of Llylgamyn is the third game in the Wizardry series, it was released second for the NES because Knight of Diamonds, the actual second game, was deemed to be too difficult for beginners (though it was, eventually, released for the NES as well).

Here, the object of the quest, the Orb of Earithin, mysteriously appears in a shop by way of a lost battle and a glitch involving the occasional result thereof of causing a character to be lost in the dungeon, bringing the quest to a close impossibly quickly.

The Lost Levels is the remake of the game released in Japan as Super Mario Bros 2; it is an exercise in Fake Difficulty, containing very difficult jumps, many enemies, problematic terrain, poisonous mushrooms, and, at worst, koopa jumps over walls or across pits. Most of it is senseless rehashing of elements in places where they don't belong (like amateur hacks). It's so difficult to beat that Nintendo of America released a wholly different game given a Mario theme as Super Mario Bros 2.

Of all the games in Super Mario All-Stars, it's the only one in the set that saves your progress at individual levels rather than the start of worlds. It's that bad.

This movie, 23.14 seconds faster than the previous, plays all levels, including the secret world 9, and extremely difficult A through D worlds.
