- Major skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
This is the JPN version of EarthBound Beginnings (also known as Mother (マザー) ). As the first version of the game, it has a number of useful glitches; this run abuses the way the game handles the "Bread crumbs" item to warp off the edge of reality and casually walk straight into the final boss's lair under a second faster than the previous run.

We also have a more normal run of the localized version, which doesn't include this glitch.

The concept for this run originated long ago because Princess was the only character not used in the normal run aiming for fastest overall time. (In fact, Princess is the only character not used in the fastest warpless run either.)

This movie improves the previous publication by 5.8 seconds, thanks to better optimisation and usage of the carpet glitch in 1-2.

EarthBound is a great RPG, designed by Shigesato Itoi in 1994-1995, and is also known by the name Mother 2.

It is best described as "random", in a good way. The game has a great emphasis on a humor, and indeed many things in the game are almost caricatured, from subplots to characters. It also has a versatile soundtrack.

In contrast to the in-bounds run of this game, this run skips most of the plot. There are several major collision detection bugs, including one showing that the Skip Sandwich is a fitting name for the item in ways the developers never intended. The author is able to move around the game's areas freely, completing the bare minimum number of tasks needed to keep the final battle from locking up.

This is an improvement over the previous submission by 13.28 seconds thanks to better optimizations.

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.
