- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters is the direct sequel to Mega Man: The Power Battle. Like its predecessor, this arcade-only game does away with the levels of the classic Mega Man games and instead pits you against Robot Master after Robot Master. The game features four characters and three game modes to choose from, with different Robot Masters to fight in each mode.

For this run, Marx runs the "Search for Wily!" mode with 2 players at once, using both Mega Man and Proto Man to defeat each robot faster than just 1 player could. Though the battles are speedy, the brief waiting periods after each match allow some time for entertainment.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Astyanax (1990) is the story of a studly 16-year-old boy named Astyanax who is summoned to the world of Remlia in order to save the enchantress Princess Rosebud from the evil wizard Blackhorn, who wants to rule the world.

It is a somewhat clumsy game. For one, Astyanax is twice as big as he appears, and so he is easily hit unless one plays carefully. The controls are also very bad. The sum of these factors is that it's a difficult game to play, but that's part of what makes this movie interesting—especially for those who have played this game.

Thanks to effective lag management and using all powers, the author has achieved 32.66 seconds worth of improvement over the previous movie by dragonxyk.

Super Contra 7 is a pirate game based off the Contra series, developed by E.S.C. Co (alias of Waixing) in 1996 for the Famicom. It is likely a hack of either Contra or Super C, given that the engine appears to be a modified version of the Contra engine.

The game features a pretty psychedelic soundtrack and several glitches that aren't present in other Contras, and Marx makes sure to use them well. This time he uses 2 players and improves the previous movie by 6.75 seconds.
