Keitai Denjū Telefang (携帯電獣テレファング) is a series of video games produced by Smilesoft and published by Natsume. The games are monster-battling games, where the player contacts various creatures using a cell phone-like device called a D-Shot in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. The name of the series derives from Keitai, which is Japanese for "cell phone," since phoning creatures is an integral part of the game, and "fang," to symbolize the various beasts involved.

This movie improves its predecessor by more than a half of a minute. Significant glitching is used; you will likely have to read the authors' comments to understand what's going on.

Pokémon: Silver Version takes place 3 years after Red, Blue and Yellow, and puts the player in a brand new world: Johto. The gameplay is very similar to the previous games, but with several improvements, including new functions for the player's PokéGear, a Pokédex that can now be sorted by evolution type, and of course, new Pokémon.

In this run, MrWint uses a glitch involving the Coin Case to execute arbitrary code and finish the game 24 minutes faster than the previous version. As with his TAS of Blue Version, the entire input file was generated by a computer program that brute forced the game for optimal luck manipulation. The expansive testing done by the program is the reason for the astronomical rerecord count.

The TASVideos record movie for Pokémon: Yellow Version uses heavy glitches that lead to Ash cataloging every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program. For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments.

This movie improves upon its predecessor by never having to leave Ash's room to gain full control of execution flow. However, that movie has a very different kind of payload at the end, and is worth watching as well. Both movies apply the idea that TASing is programming input rather than playing the game. For a list of more runs that embody this idea, see this post.

As this run was submitted on March 14 - "Pi Day", it contains many, many references to π. See how many you can find!

Ash reveals his dark side, using save corruption and direct memory manipulation to catch 152 Pokémon in the blink of an eye. Then he beats the game in less than a minute (in-game time) - without ever leaving his own room, bypassing Professor Oak's speech by walking through a television, bumping into a wall, and having the game inform him about 1 error.

This run is so glitchy that it's near impossible to follow what's going on without help; reading the author's notes is highly recommended.

To see a run of the first generation of Pokémon that doesn't take advantage of save data corruption, watch the movie of the Blue Version.


Note: This movie requires VBA rerecording v19, v21 or v22.

Award - Lucky TAS of 2013
Pokémon: Blue Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time using save data corruption (as evidenced in the run of the Yellow Version), but this run avoids such techniques in favor of activating an entirely different glitch.

This is an improvement of 9:00.78 over the previous run in this category, which used a similar glitch to the more heavily glitched categories. You might want to check out the run that avoids glitched warps for an example of quickly completing the game without corrupting the memory.

It is recommended that you read the author's comments to fully enjoy what's being done here.

Pokémon: Red Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as evidenced in the run of the Yellow Version, and it can be completed in under half an hour using a more "conventional" glitch, as shown by this run on the Blue Version. These runs break the game, and avoid much of the gameplay intended by the developers.

This run by MrWint catches all 151 Pokémon and completes the game, showing off much more of the game than seen in the other runs while still using many glitches to complete this goal much faster than the programmers could have imagined. Thanks to some new glitches, this run is over an hour faster than the previous movie in this category! For more details about the techniques used in this run, please read the author's notes.

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 RPG's game for the Game Boy.

However, rather than deciding to engage 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 under two minutes.

Although the length of this movie is 20:09.98 when timed with our standard method, applying the timing method used by most Zelda speedrunners (until last hit on Ganon) would result in a final time of 16:57.69. It's important to note this so that there's no confusion about which runs are faster than the others.

In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible. He achieves this by exploiting a large sequence break which involves "tricking" the game into warping Link directly from the Deku Tree (the first dungeon) to Ganon's Castle. Child Link then goes on conquering the whole castle without a single thought about becoming an adult beforehand.

Despite how quickly this game can be beaten these days, this run is almost two minutes faster than its predecessor thanks to new tricks at the Deku Tree and tower collapse sequence as well as many small improvements throughout the run.

This TAS was done using the Japanese version of the game. The reason for this is that the text is significantly faster than in the English version, which means that far less time is spent waiting for text boxes and cut scenes to end before getting back to the action.

The author's notes explain in great detail many of the things done in this TAS, which may be confusing to those who aren't familiar with Ocarina of Time speedrunning. Reading them is strongly advised.

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread.

Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up game known for its extreme difficulty spread over 16 difficult levels. The mechanics in the game also change drastically from level to level, making the game one of the hardest and most varied for the NES.

In this game, the second most diabolical evil genius in the universe, The Dark Queen, has kidnapped Princess Angelica and Pimple - a battletoad. Rash and Zitz must save them by traveling through the most insane multilevel set of plans ever designed. This includes falling down huge shafts, racing through obstacle courses at breakneck speeds, riding on snakes through a massive maze of spikes, passing through a killer ventilation system, navigating through a missile defense system, climbing a never ending revolving tower, and much much more. Along the way, the Battletoads must also face off against an evil army of robots, genetically engineered rodents, and The Dark Queen herself.

In order to make the game a bit easier, its creators embedded some secret warp zones to skip a few early levels in their entirety. But that simply wasn't good enough for MESHUGGAH; he decided to travel directly to level 3, where he invents his own warp and skips right to the grand finale. He took a glitch found in this TAS and exploited it further, to the point the Dark Queen just gives up and returns Angelica and Pimple, going off to hatch an even more evil plan for next time. The glitch is done by breaking the game execution and sticking it right to the game ending.

This run conquers the predecessor movie by 0.18 seconds by exploiting the fact that green toad is processed before the yellow one.

Dragon Warrior 3 completed quickly by using a bizarre glitch that allows the author to fill his inventory with useful items, manipulate his stats, and even add places to his return list! This allows most of the game to be skipped.

Thanks to this new method of item glitching, this is almost exactly nine minutes faster than the previous version of the run.

Final Fantasy III was the second of two Final Fantasy NES games to be released only in Japan, leading to the fourth game in the series being released to the rest of the world as Final Fantasy II. The game brings back the experience point system from the first game while changing up the character jobs formula by allowing the player to change a character's class mid-game as well as acquire new and advanced classes.

In this movie, the author, AmaizumiUni, abuses a bug that causes character inventory to overflow, corrupting the game's memory and triggering the credits early.

Award - NES TAS of 2013
Kirby's Adventure is a colorful game that's very long for a NES title. However, a bug was discovered which caused unpredictable results (including triggering the credits) upon using the Stone power while entering the water.

This movie saves over five minutes from its predecessor. This is because instead of playing multiple levels to reach a spot for the glitch, a new wall-clipping trick is used in the third room of the very first level.

This movie was also the result of an intense frame war that spawned over a dozen attempts and ultimately resulted in an improvement of over 3 seconds of the initial attempt.


This movie has two YouTube encodes. The primary version has deliberately glitched ending graphics, whereas the second one displays proper graphics. Both versions have identical input except for the last frame.

On this site, we make perfect movies, and then we surpass them. Of course, if we can surpass them, they were not perfect in the first place, but who would have known?

When "perfection" is defined as "as fast as possible", it requires some sacrifices. Indeed, this movie sacrifices a lot in the playability of the game. Full of tricks to pass through walls, tricks to avoid mandatory battles, tricks to pass through enemies relatively unharmed, tricks to acquire weapon refills in little time — there is very little in this movie left that resembles normal playing. Even death is used as a viable playing strategy that saves time. All of the tricks are still performed by the means of mere controller input, even though significant portions of the input were calculated by a computer program.

This movie is a considerable improvement of 3:04.39 to the previous movie; this is mainly due to a new technique which tricks the game into calling an 'end of level' object.

Of course, upon watching this movie, one does have to question something... is it Mega Man saving the world? Or Dr. Wily trying to save it from absolute destruction?

Mega Man is the first game in the famous series that now comprises games on many different systems as well as several television shows and comic books.

While the other run of this game uses lots of tricks to reach the ending impressively quickly, pirohiko and FinalFighter decided it just wasn't fast enough. In this run, they manipulate an object to appear which allows them to execute arbitrary code and warp to the credits, all using only controller input.

While decidedly not the same game, the Super Mario Bros. games on the NES are similar enough in game mechanics and controls that all four of them can be played at once with the same input.

This second version of the quad-run utilizes the credits glitch found in the newest Super Mario Bros. 3 run. As such, the focus is now on finishing Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels as fast as possible, allowing Super Mario Bros. 3 to entertain while waiting for the other three games to progress. The run also features an ending that may surprise you.

Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous game for the NES. There are normally two main ways to beat it: the quick way using warp whistles to skip worlds, and the longer way which goes through all the worlds. However, thanks to some esoteric memory corruption involving glitched pipe travel, it's possible to jump right into the princess's room in under three minutes! Bowser is never seen in this run at all.

This run gets to World 7-1 as quickly as possible to perform the glitch, and some unusual moves are done with enemy spawns and positions to get the glitch to work. See the authors' comments for some more details. There are also author subtitles provided with the emulator movie file and primary encode to explain some of the key differences in this run.

Watch this run on a real NES. And here is how human beings perform the same glitch in real time.

Not only was Castlevania: Symphony of the Night the first installment of the Castlevania series on PSX but also the first PSX game to have a published run here. Follow Dracula's son Alucard as he glitches through the castle on a quest to end his father's life.

ForgoneMoose and sockfolder, by corrupting the save data, manage to corrupt the memory and go straight to the ending, totally skipping Richter and the whole second castle.

A 100% run covering the whole castle is also available here. If you prefer the main character to have muscular bare arms and to pray to the rain gods to defeat bosses, you may enjoy the Richter version. If you want to see a run on Replay mode that can skip many cutscenes, see this run. A run with clear save without memory corruption is also available here.

- Genre: Platform
This is the second in a series of seminal platformers for the PlayStation, with very similar gameplay to its predecessor.

A normal run of this game takes a rather long time to complete. However, by using a bug that corrupts the memory when jumping on top of an unbreakable box, the author gathers the crystals necessary to advance to the next set of stages unbelievably quickly, leaving only the bosses to make quick work of.


Note for viewers: In order to be sync-stable, a sound plugin with less than perfect sound quality needed to be used, so do not be alarmed if the sound is not flawless. However, using a different plugin was possible for the introduction and the ending.

This game (along with Pocket Monsters: Red) is the Japanese version of the first generation of Pokémon games and the first ever Pokémon game.

This run, a ten frame improvement over the previous version, abuses a glitch that was fixed in later releases of Pocket Monsters (Pokémon) that allows a player to warp freely through the world. Victory is achieved in a matter of minutes with this route. Normally, the game takes well over an hour at the fastest to finish.

To see a more substantial run of the first generation of Pokémon, watch this movie. For a less substantial run (which also demonstrates that they didn't fix all the glitches in later versions), watch this one.


Note: This movie requires VBA rerecording v20, as it does not sync on any other version.

Dragon View, is a side-scrolling role-playing video game released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in November 1994. Released in Japan as Super Drakkhen and otherwise known as Drakkhen II, it is meant to be a prequel to Drakkhen although it bears little resemblance to its predecessor. It uses the same pseudo-3D overworld system for which the series is most famous. Other features of Dragon View are its side-view action role-playing game (RPG) hybrid gameplay (used when exploring more detailed areas such as towns and dungeons), its well translated first person storyline, and its emphasis on player-driven undirected exploration.

In this run, Khaz makes the game realize how boring it really is, and has it jump straight to the credits roughly half-way through the intended story. A side effect of this particular glitch is the cutscene after the credits gets glitched out and has the main character walk in place, forever.

More information on how this was achieved can be found in the submission notes.

Final Fantasy IV, renamed to Final Fantasy II in North America, was a role-playing game that revolutionized the genre. It was the first Final Fantasy title to introduce the Active Time Battle system and one of the first RPGs to feature a complex, involving plot.

In this TAS, pirohiko blazes through the game in under two hours using a host of tricks, glitches, and battle strategies. We recommend reading the author's comments for more information on the route used.


A second YouTube stream is available with an informative overlay that the author used while creating the run.

Kirby Super Star is normally a fairly long game split into a bunch of minigames, as the following run at TASVideos shows. However, in the Japanese version of the game, ladders have some more unusual glitchy behavior... in fact, the glitch allows the user to basically take over the game's inner workings.

This run goes first to The Great Cave Offensive, since it has the first ladder that can be reached from a clean save. For many more technical details, see the run's submission comments.

This is the 3rd published movie in a category of impressively fast Super Mario World TASes. It beats the game by jumping to the credits from one of the two levels available from the start, Yoshi's Island 2. This happens because a glitch involving eating a Charging Chuck allows manipulating the code being executed by the game using only controller input.

This run is 57.75 seconds faster than Masterjun's previous movie. For more information on the new method used here, check out the clear and detailed author's comments.

For more movies like this, see this list of TASes that execute arbitrary code.


Using a similar glitch, Masterjun has also used mere controller input to embed his own games into Super Mario World itself.

This is the 10th published movie of Super Mario World that beats the game by clearing 11 of the 96 exits, the shortest route intended by the game developers. Of all the previous movies, not one had obsoleted its predecessor by more than 15 seconds. This movie sets a new record by beating the previous movie by 22.68 seconds and clocking in under 10 minutes. Ironically, Mario dies in the process.

The authors of this movie have found (more) new glitches to save time. The notable differences in gameplay are:

  • Plays a level which was not previously played (Yoshi's Island 1)
  • Skips Iggy's Castle
  • Optimizes Bowser fight
We recommend reading the author's comments to understand how the new glitches are used in this movie.

There are also movies of this game that trigger the credits early, clear all 96 exits, clear as many exits as possible as small Mario, and write a program using the game's code.

This is a quick completion of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

Here, the author, Masterjun, abuses a glitch that results in corruption of the egg list. This confuses the game and causes it to jump to the SNES CPU registers and start executing arbitrary code, which triggers the credits.

There is also a run without game-breaking glitches and a 100% run.

Exploiting this glitch instead of just using a warp glitch to get to 6-8 quickly saved over 3.5 minutes over the previous movie.

Super Metroid is a classic game that normally takes much longer to beat. However, by abusing a glitch involving going through a door as the game is returning from the pause menu, total, sniq and cpadolf manage to corrupt the game's memory and make it jump to controller input. Once they gain control, they execute arbitrary code to tell the game to immediately jump to the ending only seven minutes in!

This run improves the previous one in this category by over five and a half minutes through a totally new glitch. It also finishes with a record ingame time of 00:02 and a completion rate of 2%!

The sixth installment of the Ultima series. The game normally involves tracking down runes, navigating huge dungeons, engaging in combat, locating pirate treasure and questing to restore peace between humans and gargoyles.

However, using an inventory corruption glitch, the author decides to take the quick route and skip over almost the entire game. See the author's comments for more information.

Wizardry V: Heart of the Maelstrom is an RPG from the well-known Wizardry series of games. Normally, these games are very long. However, in keeping with the TASVideos tradition of making long RPG runs short, this run reaches the ending in a little over a minute through extensive glitching of the inventory. See the author's comments for more information.

The primary encode for this run has subtitles from the author as well. If you want even more information available when the run is playing, see the author's own encode with subtitles, memory watch and map on YouTube.

For more Wizardry runs, see the first game, the second game, and the third game.

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.
