Mega Man Legends is the first of the Mega Man series to take place in fully explorable 3D and is paced more like an RPG than the previous stage-to-stage action games.

Hetfield90 beats this game in less than an hour thanks to careful routing and a few glitches, which are both detailed in the submission comments.

Mega Man returns in this, his second 3D outing. The Blue bomber and his teammate, Roll, must journey to a distant island to recover The Mother Lode, an item that no-one really understands, but that they all believe may hold the key to make their dreams come true, and so everyone is after it.

Unlike past Mega Man titles, Legends 2 also adds RPG elements into the mix, allowing players to talk to villagers and the like. Some may help in finding items, others aid the player with important information about The Mother Lode, and other areas on the island.

Released for the Super Famicom in 1996, Front Mission Series: Gun Hazard is the second installment of the Front Mission series. Unlike the numbered titles in the series, which are isometric tactical RPGs, Gun Hazard is a side-scrolling shooter which takes place in a completely separate universe. The game was never given an offical English release, but there is a high quality fan translation made by Aeon Genesis.

Originally thought to be an April Fools joke, it turns out that Capcom really did hide a one-hit-kills weapon in Mega Man X. That platform in Armored Armadillo's stage always did seem a little strange.

Unlike the later games, collecting the Hadoken is much more time consuming compared to the ability to obliterate the mandatory Reploid rematches and fortress bosses. Nevertheless this run is still faster than the first any% run ever published.

Hetfield managed to improve the previous run by 35.2 seconds, thanks to a better usage of a the phantom grab glitch. More info about this glitch can be read in the submission text.

If you want to see more of the blue-clad hero, we recommend watching the any% run.

Hetfield managed to improve the previous run by 10 seconds, although the actual improvement is roughly 22.2 seconds, and most of it was lost because of the use of a more accurate emulator.

Since moving to the SNES 16-bit land, Mega Man has taken the secret identity X, but everyone knows it's still him because he's the only blue robot who shoots three pellets at a time at other robots and steals their weapons.

Hetfield90 takes the game apart once again with new tricks that have been discovered over the years.

For extra curiosity, there is a page "Mega Man X Tricks" that explains some of the tricks that are and/or can be used in the X series games.

If you want to see more of the blue-clad hero, we recommend watching the 100% completion run.

Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility. These include a grappling hook, a fast mid-air dash, and a weapon that can transform enemies into platforms.

Hetfield90 improves the previous run by nearly 9 seconds with some new tricks and changes to boss fights. See the submission comments for more details.

This run goes for the fastest completion time, only collecting the X-Buster upgrade. TASVideos also has the "100%" run which collects all the parts of both X and Zero.

Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility. These include a grappling hook, a fast mid-air dash and a weapon that can transform enemies into platforms. The author, Hetfield90, takes special care to ensure that when there is a situation in which a weapon could help them progress quicker, they make use of it.

This run improves the previous version by about 27.31 seconds. thanks to many tricks that have been discovered over the years and the use of more accurate emulation.

Mega Man X3 is the third game in the Mega Man X series, and the last one to be released on the SNES.

This is the first actual "100%" run of this game. Hetfield90 speeds through the game very rapidly, collecting all heart tanks, subtanks, Ride Armor modules, upgrades and finally the Golden Armor. However, contrary to the previously labeled 100% run, Zero is sacrificed and his Z-Saber obtained.

The page Mega Man X Tricks explains some of the tricks that are used in this tool-assisted speedrun.

See also the any% run, which doesn't collect the upgrades but also collects the Z-Saber.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Uses a suboptimal character
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
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 Spiritia. For more action, we also have a Grolla movie by the same author.

It is 57.34 seconds faster than the previous run by in-game timing parameters, and an improvement of 1087 frames(18.1s) through directly comparable improvements. (Note that the reason why this run appears to be 3s slower than the old run by standard TAS timing parameters is because the published run ends input before the final boss fight whereas this one does not, since doing so is detrimental to in-game time).

This run is a 22 second improvement over the previous movie by Bernka thanks to better optimization.

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

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.
