- Genre: RPG
The Final Fantasy Legend, known in Japan as Makai Toushi SaGa, is a video game released for the Game Boy in December 1989 by Square Co. It is the first game in the SaGa series and the first in the series for the Game Boy.

However, rather than engaging on a long quest of epic proportions, the author decides to just kick in the Japanese edition of the game and breeze through it in about a minute.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 36.61 seconds with new glitches and menuing optimizations.

- Genre: RPG
Rumor says that the legendary Black Onyx, an artifact that grants eternal youth and happiness to those who can find it, lies within the Black Tower near the town of Utsuro. You assemble a party of brave adventurers and venture into the tower, defeating monsters on your way to the great treasure. ruadath gets to the treasure in just 41 seconds, moving through the rooms with godlike speed.

The Black Onyx is one of the first traditional role-playing games made by a Japanese company. It is similar in gameplay to early Wizardry and Ultima games with killing monsters and exploring dungeons, with dark, realistic visuals. The player creates a party (up to five members) and explores a maze-like 3D dungeon, fighting random enemies on the way. The heroes also meet adventurers who can be convinced to join the party. The combat engine is turn-based.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Adventure
Clock Tower is a survival horror point-and-click game in which Jennifer Simpson attempts to uncover the secrets of the Barrows mansion where she and her fellow orphans have been trapped. Jennifer must avoid traps, monsters, and a scissor-wielding psychopath as she explores the strange mansion.

But in this movie, Jennifer decides to leave her friends and escape alone by busting through the mansion's walls in a car. This 3.02 second improvement to the previous movie uses a menu glitch to reduce screen scroll lag. Skipping the Anne pool cutscene and escaping in the car also glitches the ending sequence, causing the credits to display instead of the Ending H cutscene.

We also have a run that gets the best ending.

But in this movie, Jennifer decides to leave her friends and escape alone by busting through the mansion's walls in a car. Unlike the last movie, this 5.43 second faster one takes advantage of a glitch to take an unconventional route through the pool area. This glitches out the ending sequence, causing the credits to display instead of the Ending H cutscene.

This movie takes advantage of several small tricks and glitches to achieve the best ending, Ending S, in roughly 12 and a half minutes. Among them are an inventory glitch, which allows skipping through dialogue, and a select glitch that allows Jennifer to run through the psychopath by clicking an object on the screen.

We also have a run that beats the game as fast as possible.

This movie takes advantage of several small tricks and glitches to achieve the best ending, Ending S, in under 12 minutes. Among them are an inventory glitch, which allows skipping through dialogue, and a select glitch, which allows Jennifer to run through the psychopath by clicking an object on the screen. Several new glitches this time around also contribute to a 33.10 second improvement over ruadath's previous run.

But in this movie, Jennifer freaks out at first sight of the psychopath and decides to escape alone by busting through the mansion's walls in a car. This movie therefore achieves the quickest, although worst ending. We also have a run that gets the best ending.
