One year after the defeat of Amakusa from within the first Samurai Shodown, a new threat soon emerges in the form of Mizuki Rashojin: a vengeful spirit who possess a local shrine priestess named Bizuki and seeks to bring forth chaos and destruction to the world in the name of the dark god Ambrosia's will. Those who had fought before in the past during Amakusa's reign of terror now find themselves, along with a few new faces, battling against Mizuki and her loyal forces in order to determine the fate of the entire world itself.

Samurai Shodown II is a 1994 fighting game released as a second entry in SNK's Samurai Shodown series.

SoulCalibur II continues the tradition set by Soul Blade on the PlayStation and SoulCalibur on the Dreamcast with intense action and plenty of weapons to deal the massive blows. Each console version of the game also includes a unique character for the platform; in the GameCube version, it's Link from The Legend of Zelda.

This run by N?K aims for fastest time in Arcade mode by playing as Nightmare and ending fights quickly through extensive use of ring-outs.


Note: In order to get this movie to sync, the free DSP files included with Dolphin must be used. Playing back the run using DSP files dumped from a real GameCube will result in a desync.

N?K improves his previous run by nearly a minute, thanks to setting the amount of rounds per match to 1 and overall better luck manipulation.


Note: In order for this run to sync, the free DSP files included with Dolphin must be used. Playing back the run using DSP files dumped from a real GameCube will result in a desync.

Note 2: Due to minor emulation issues, some fade transitions are completely missing, notably the transitions between matches in Arcade mode.

In Battle City, your goal is to destroy enemy tanks while trying to keep them away from your base. Each level includes 20 enemies as well as some obstacles, like the weak red bricks, armored silver bricks, water and ice, which you can use to your advantage. The basic tank you start with can also be powered up little by little throughout the game.

In this run, N?K rolls through the game speedily while losing a little bit of time to entertain with amusing shooting patterns and making the scenery into recognizable letters and shapes.

Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

Cross Fire is a 2D Platformer game, developed and published by Kyugo Boueki, which was released in Japan in 1990. However, as N?K shows in this run, it becomes a much shorter game when you can walk through walls instead of properly completing stages or fighting bosses.

- 100% completion
- Genre: Action
Pepsiman is based on the Japanese Pepsi mascot who appeared in different commercials in Japan. In these he appeared where people were thirsty, quenched the people's thirst, then injured himself most of the time.

The game more or less follows this series of events as you run along stages collecting Pepsi cans, while trying your best to avoid injury or public humiliation. The goal of every stage is to run along a set course, jumping or sliding out of harm's way and in the end reach a vending machine with... you guessed it! Pepsi of course!

Although it may not look like it due to emulation differences, N?K has improved over his previous movie by 174 frames of in-game time.

N?K beats the game while collecting all the Pepsi cans, in order to achieve '100%' completion.


Note: PSXjin isnt able to play the stage music, so all encodes have them manually edited in.

In Samurai Shodown II, players take on the role of one of fifteen warriors, fighting their way through the land to defeat Rashojin Mizuki, who was thrown into the sea when she was a little girl and has since become a servant of the dark god Ambrosia. N?K destroys all of the opponents using Haohmaru, the main hero in each game of the Samurai Shodown series.

The Samurai Shodown series differs from other well-known fighting games of its time in a couple of ways. First, all characters can use a weapon, usually a sword (or occasional animal friends, like a dog or a falcon). Second, the games focus more on hard hits instead of combos, showing a slowdown effect when powerful strikes are landed.

It is 16th century Japan and you are one of two ninja employed by Lord Gohda, an uniquely compassionate samurai lord. As either Rikimaru or Ayame, you must proceed through your assigned quests, at first dispatching the amoral and unsavory folk in your lord's domain. As the game progresses, you will come face to face with greater threats from tengu goblins and oni demons.

A full 3D game in the Tomb Raider spirit, Tenchu focuses on stealth and attacking unseen over straight action. Not being spotted leads to higher scores and better equipment. To aid in this, you can not only creep about and hug walls, but also use your grappling hook.

This run by N?K was done on the Japanese version of the game, Rittai Ninja Katsugeki - Tenchu. Because of significant differences between this version and the USA version, this run was judged not to obsolete the other run of this game.

- Genre: RPG
In preparation for Ragnarok, the final battle between the gods, Odin has commanded Lenneth Valkyrie to descend to the lower world and gather the souls of fallen heroes to serve as soldiers in the approaching conflict. The player controls Lenneth, gathering soldiers and training them to be transferred to the battlefields of the gods.

..except N?K does none of that, instead accessing the debug room through corrupting the save file on the memory card due to resetting the console while saving, and thus ends the game in record time.

Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu (ドラゴンボールZ 超サイヤ伝説) is a role playing video game and the first Dragon Ball game for the Super Famicom. It was released only in Japan on January 25, 1992.

Super Saiya Densetsu is a remake combining two earlier Famicom games of the Gokuden series: Dragon Ball Z: Kyoushuu! Saiya Jin and Dragon Ball Z II: Gekishin Freeza!!, but without the movie characters and anime filler elements that were featured in them.

The game follows the rough outline of the Vegeta, Namek, and Frieza Sagas, with various add-ons and edits to make the story fit within the RPG guidelines, such as the inclusion of multi-colored Saibamen and re-colors of Frieza's henchmen and the Ginyu Force members as common enemies.

Bruce Lee once said: "I fear not the man who has practiced ten thousand kicks once. But I fear the man who has practiced one kick ten thousand times."

N?K once again pushes that idea to an absurd degree, kicking away 3.42 seconds from his previous time attack of Mortal Kombat II with better optimization.

We also have a "playaround" run, which aims to demonstrate as many tricks and fatalities in the game as possible.

Bruce Lee once said: "I fear not the man who has practiced ten thousand kicks once. But I fear the man who has practiced one kick ten thousand times."

Tool assistance allowed N?K to push the limits of that phrase to an absurd degree, using Mortal Kombat II for a stripped time attack.

We also have a "playaround" run, which aims to demonstrate as many tricks and fatalities in the game as possible.
