- Uses death to save time
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
In Metal Max, a mysterious war known as "The Havoc" has almost destroyed the human civilization. It's unknown how it broke out, and no one even dares to find out. The few who are left have to struggle to survive. Among them is our young hero, E, who just makes his decision to become a great Hunter.

Released by Data East in Japan in 1991, Metal Max was one of the more "creative" console role-playing games due to more freedom in the story. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic future, in which surviving people cluster from villages to ruins, while some Hunters among them fight monsters and outlaws in the "wild".

In this run, suwei improves the previous run by 50.66 seconds by using "dud" shells instead of panic shells and buying the teleport item from a different place.

The author abused glitches in the game to complete it achieving the "good ending" in less than half an hour, being 59.91 seconds faster than its precessor, while normally it is supposed to take more than 10 hours. We recommend reading the author's comments for more details.

Metal Max Returns is the remake of the NES game Metal Max. It features better graphics and sound, revised areas, references to Metal Max 2, and slightly decreased difficulty.

Because of the requirements for completion in this game, this movie is quite different from the original Metal Max (which was TASed by the same author, suwei). For a list of the differences and more information, see the author's notes.
