- Genre: Action
In Dottori Kun, you control a race car on a five lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to advance to the next level, very similar to the Atari 2600 game Dodge 'Em, with the major difference being the ability to change directions.

This run by xy2_ plays all 11 levels, after which no new content is presented.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivingly hard. The game never once lets you breathe, and in unassisted play, there are a lot of things to manage at the same time. This, along with the 3 health you start out with, can make clearing with just a single credit a nightmare.

The game mostly revolves along Osman and his power: he has the power to make clones of himself when he attacks that stay for a varying amount of time and reproduce the attack he just did.

This run is a 56.03 improvement over the previous one by the same author. Note that the real time of this run is 5:47.02 - The extra 1:10 is because the author puts his initials in the high score table after the credits roll.

This run by xy2 beats the game with the highest score possible, without relying on checkpoint farming to increase the score further.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Genre: Action
Beyblade: Metal Masters is a video game based on the manga called Beyblade: Metal Fusion. Said manga also inspired a four-season anime series called Beyblade: Metal Saga. The game is largely based on the events of the anime series.

xy2_ spins his Beyblades to victory with the first available character, Gingka, in about 7 and a half minutes.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
This is a jump 'n run game based on the movie of Nickelodeon's popular TV show, Hey Arnold! It lets you play as several characters from the series – Arnold, Gerald, Grandpa, and Grandma – as they try to save their neighborhood from being demolished by corrupt developer Scheck.

In this TAS, xy2 abuses several minor glitches, including bunny hopping and hyper jumping, to quickly beat the game in under half an hour.

- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Unofficial game
- Genre: Platform
Super Mario World 64 is a pirated port of the SNES Super Mario World, made for the Sega Mega Drive by an unknown developer, at an unknown date (but most likely after the original release of Super Mario 64 in 1996).

In the game you play as Mario alone; Yoshi makes no appearance whatsoever. Holding A allows you to run, but the distance required before Mario starts running is longer than expected, making careful jumps that require the distance a bit tricky. Control in general is also very stiff.

- Heavy glitch abuse

- Genre: Action
Based loosely on the novel with a similar name, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde follows Dr. Jekyll as he walks to his wedding. For some reason though, everyone and everything is out to kill him. Unfortunately for them, he has mastered the art of phase walking.

This run is an improvement of over a minute over the previous run, thanks to more optimization and a new glitch that allows Jekyll to clip through the screen.
