Spartan X 2 is a 1991 beat 'em up developed by Tamtex and published by Irem exclusively in Japan. You play as Johnny Thomas, an undercover investigator tasked with taking down the drug syndicate known as Hawk. Whereas Johnny's previous adventure was set entirely in a five-story pagoda, this game sees him fight his way through a variety of different locations, including a train, a warehouse, a boat, an airplane, a mansion, and the Hawk drug plant.

Bernka guides the fearless fighter through all six stages and finishes off Hawk's leader in a little over 6 minutes.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
In previous Mega Man X games, X would do all the real fighting while Zero would say he was off to destroy power sources and do other such unverifiable tasks. Zero even had the audacity to tell him that one day X would be as strong as him.

This time, X lays back and lets Zero put his money lightsaber where his mouth is, leaving Zero to fight off an entire army as well as Sigma. Zero does such a good job showing how much better he is than X that the series has been transformed for TASVideos to be a Zero series from here on out.

This submission improves the previous run by 12.53 seconds primarily through precise optimization of boss battles.

Unlike the other categories of this game, this run uses both X and Zero to collect as many items as possible. The variety of characters and armors used make for a run with interesting differences from the other categories.

- Takes damage to save time
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
In an effort to avoid the status quo, Capcom decided to experiment, throwing in a leveling system and story-based launch scenarios. Beyond that, it's really just a Mega Man X Zero game.

This is the first game in the series to allow character choice before each stage. Zero is chosen as often as possible, leaving X behind to gather dust. The abusable sword physics highlight Zero's superiority, especially when the sword is used while standing on the ground. Bosses fall very quickly, even when they have 127 health. See the Game Resources page and the author's comments for an explanation of how these tricks work.

There are about 5 minutes of action in this run, which consist mostly of flying through levels and a boss rush on the hardest difficulty mode, Xtreme.

This run is 12.90 seconds faster than the previous run.

We also have a run which completes all stages and a 100% run.

Set in Japanese Edo period's Honshu Oboro Muramasa revolves around fast-paced spectacle fighting with RPG elements against vicious demons summoned by the titular Demon Blades. Two characters are available. Here, Bernka plays the amnesiac ninja Kisuke on highest difficulty, by way of which he gets granted only one hitpoint. Of course, this doesn't intimidate him in the slightest.

Don't forget to watch its sister movie showing off Momohime as well: [2009] Wii Muramasa: The Demon Blade (USA) "Momohime" by RachelB in 1:04:59.75

Eryi's Action is a sidescrolling platformer where Eryi must charge through a series of devious traps and enemies in order to stop Farta and recover her melon. There are so many of these traps, in fact, that the developers designated the game a "trapformer". In many cases, the most obvious path through an area does not work, and only clever thinking or trial-and-error will allow Eryi to proceed safely.

Aside from the traps, the game is designed to be very similar to Super Mario Bros.: enemies are defeated by being jumped upon, a flagpole must be reached at the end of each stage, and there are even mushrooms (which can be used as trampolines).

In this run, Bernka uses tool assistance to barely steer Eryi away from many traps and even fool several others, chaining mushroom and enemy jumps and moving precisely to beat the game in the fastest time possible.

For a movie of a similar but much less polished game, see the Syobon Action TAS.

- Best ending
- Uses death to save time
- Major skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
In Eversion, Zee-Tee is on a quest to rescue the princess across multiple realms, each one more disturbing than the last...

Despite not collecting all the gems, this run by Bernka achieves the good ending by using a glitch to trick the game into unlocking Level 8 with minimum gems.

Rosenkreuzstilette (ローゼンクロイツスティレッテ) is a platform game published by independent Japanese studio [erka:es]. Gameplay resembles a Mega Man clone, with Spiritia collecting various weapons from each boss defeated, and alternate protagonist Grolla playing more like Zero from the Mega Man X and Mega Man Zero series.

See how many things from different Mega Man games you can spot while watching this! Stage by stage notes are in the author's comments.

This movie uses Grolla. For more action, we also have a Spiritia movie by the same author.
