Chocobo no Fushigi na Dungeon (チョコボの不思議なダンジョン) is a dungeon crawler starring everyone's favorite Final Fantasy transportation. It was only released in Japan, although a sequel, Chocobo's Dungeon 2, was released in the USA too.

The author uses luck manipulation to get favorable floor layouts, descending rapidly through the dungeons while still collecting items needed to kill bosses.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Starts from a saved state or SRAM
- Genre: Racing
After completing the story mode of Chocobo Racing nine times, one gains access to the secret character "Invincible". This run, starting from a save state, uses this character in time attack mode to put the other characters to shame.

This run pauses for a few seconds between tracks to show the final track times.

Note that we do not normally accept runs starting from save states. See the Rules for more information.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Racing
Anyone with a passing familiarity with the Final Fantasy series should recognise the fine Chocobo, preferred steed of many alternate universes. It's therefore not surprising that a game starring Chocobos and races would be released.

The Japanese version of this game is used due to differences in at least one stage causing the Japanese version to be more difficult.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
- Genre: RPG
Ehrgeiz - God Bless the Ring is a game with two main modes. The first mode is a 3D fighting game, which is primarily known for including characters from Final Fantasy 7. The PlayStation-exclusive second mode, Quest Mode, is a dungeon-crawling RPG, where randomly generated floor layouts and dropped item probabilities make the game different every time you play.

This run plays through Quest Mode, using lots of luck manipulation to get very short floor layouts. (As a commenter noted in the discussion thread, the game may be more aptly called "God Bless the RNG".)

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Shooter
Squaresoft (now known as Square Enix) didn't only make role-playing games! They also made games of different genres. This one is a shoot'em up called Einhänder.

This shooting game has something particular compared to its siblings. Not only can the player shoot bullets, but he can also wield a sword and slash through enemies. In fact, the game's title, Einhänder, means "single-handed" in German, referring to the player's sword.

In this movie, sparky takes advantage of a glitch to abuse the weapon's attack to cause more damage. This is only possible in the Japanese version.

X decided he's fed up with being in the shadow of Zero and shows him how it's done, beating Sigma and his army and collecting all of the items in the process.

If you still want to get your Zero fix, you can check out the run which aims for fastest time without collecting any items.

Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game chronologically released for the original Rockman/Megaman series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released on the WonderSwan handheld system. This game bears a striking resemblance to Mega Man 8, not only in style, but in excessive graphic detail. Similarly to Mega Man X4, the player has the option to choose one of two characters to play through. In this run, Rockman is chosen.

sparky sets the first time for a Rockman run for this game, and proves that even an SNES game released as late as in 1998 can be really glitchy. To learn more about sparky's techniques, you can read the author's comments.

There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site. There is a run that completes the game as Forte, and there is a run that collects all 100 CDs as Rockman.

sparky takes the game apart with some glitches that allow Forte to zip around in walls. This run is 59.83 seconds faster than the previous run, mostly due to new glitches. Read the author's comments for more details.

There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site; featuring completion of the game with Rockman as fast as possible and collection of all CDs with him.

- Takes damage to save time

- Genre: Platform
Once again, it's up to Mega Man to destroy Dr. Wily's latest army of Robot Masters, only this time on the SNES. You would think poor old Wily would learn from his past six mistakes, however this isn't so. On the up-side, we get another superb TAS of this famous series.

This is an improvement of approximately 30 seconds of in-game time thanks to some new glitches, including using the Rush Coil to wall climb and abusing Noise Crush to instantly kill some bosses.

This version plays on the North American version of Mega Man 7 whereas the previous movie plays on the Japanese version. This change affects times outside of the player's control but which still get counted towards the movie's length, making this movie appear longer than the previous movie.

There is also a 100% TAS of this game.

Here we see Mega Man destroy Dr. Wily's army yet again, only this time on the SNES. You would think poor old Wily would learn from his past 6 mistakes, however this isn't so.

This version plays on the Japanese version, Rockman 7. This change affects times outside of the player's control, but is still counted towards the movie's length.

Unlike our other run for this game, this run collects all of Mega Man's upgrades. Part of this involves running into Protoman in two stages before fighting him for his shield. For more details, see the run's comments.

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.
