After beating 006 in GoldenEye 007, Bond returns to fight Renard, another evil genius attempting to take over the world in a plot similar to the movie this first-person shooter is based on. Armed with various new weapons, Bond skis down the Caucasus Mountains, infiltrates a nuclear bunker, and even makes his way into a sub, all within half an hour.

Various glitches are abused here, particularly some that allow Bond to skip some of his objectives and even some entire levels. For more information, see the author's comments.

Bomberman 64 (爆ボンバーマン Baku Bonbāman) is the first 3-D game within the Bomberman series. It also implements a different single-player mode by incorporating action-adventure and platforming stages, instead of arenas in which enemies or other elements must be destroyed.

This TAS is played on the Japanese version because of its shorter intro.

If you want to see more Bomberman goodness, we have plenty more Bomberman Movies. There is also a 100% run by zvsp.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
The protagonist of this game is a blue chameleon named Davy who, upon following a rabbit (closely resembling the one from a Lewis Carroll book) into a magical hole in the ground, finds he has taken on a humanoid form.

Chameleon Twist has a total of 6 levels, of which only 4 need to be played through in order to reach the end.

This run is 11.33 seconds faster than the previous run thanks to a timesaver in the second candle room and a better fight against the last boss.

Chameleon Twist 2 (カメレオンツイスト2) takes place after the events in Chameleon Twist. Davy and his friends (Jack, Fred and Linda) are playing in the forest, still carrying the backpack from his last adventure, when suddenly the rabbit from before falls down and knocks one of the chameleons into the sky.

Contrary to the Chameleon Twist run, all 6 levels need to be played through in order to reach the end; Sky Land, Carnival Land, Ice Land, Great Edo Land, Toy Land and Pyramid Land.

Annoyed with the success of the Mario Kart series, a bunch of Rare characters got together and held a racing competition of their own. Along with the availability of several types of vehicles, this game has something of a storyline to it and full completion requires reloading a saved game after the credits run for the first time. More races occur after the initial credit roll, so don't stop watching once the ending plays.

Award - First edition TAS of 2017
Donkey Kong 64 is similar to Rareware's other Nintendo 64 platformer series, Banjo-Kazooie, but stars Donkey Kong and his friends from the Donkey Kong Country games. Several new features have been added to the game, like 3D graphics and the ability to change between different characters with different weapons and abilities.

In this run, RingRush uses glitches to skip a vast majority of the game and beat K. Rool in record time.

Due to differences between versions of the game, different timing methods, and the fact that RTA runs start with some features already unlocked, this run is slower than the RTA equivalent.

After the events of Doom II, it was thought that the demonic threat was finally put to rest. There was a lone survivor however, and in Doom 64 it is reanimating all of its fallen brethren in one final attempt at carrying out the evil plot. The player once again takes control of the Space Marine in an effort to finally rid the universe of this dark threat.

Here, the author Headshot sets the difficulty to the maximum setting and lets all hell break loose, making you wonder if the demonic forces even stood a chance to begin with.


Note #1: Due to the low brightness levels in the game, a second set of brightened encodes are available.

Note #2: There are also lossless encodes and encodes at additional resolutions available in the discussion thread.

Duke Nukem 64 (1997) is a classic PC shooter ported to Nintendo 64 — unfortunately, in a heavily censored state, and without much concern for the game's performance.

As such, the movie is played on the easiest level in an attempt to reduce the framerate drop issues arising from big amounts of enemies shooting at Duke. However, the sheer speed the player is blasting through levels will likely confuse you regardless — we recommend reading the author's comments to understand all the tricks he used.

Death Race is a standalone challenge within F-Zero X, so a standalone movie seemed the best way to present it. The goal is simple: destroy the other 29 ships as quickly as possible according to the in-game clock.

This TAS completes the F-Zero X Death Race as quickly as possible, with a time of 5.866s. This improves the prior fastest TAS time of 8.927 by Katsukawa Sojuro aka Xenos (who reports an unpublished time of 6.993s by throwing the car off the side as this TAS does).

The unassisted world-record is 24.745s by Daniel, played in PAL (20.621s converted to NTSC). There's no video of that time, but this video by the same author is almost as fast.

A wizard is mixing a batch of magic potions when an explosion sends the gloves on his hands flying into the air. One lands safely outside the castle, but the other lands in an evil potion mixture. It's this evil glove who decides to take over the castle. Meanwhile, seven crystals, which used to sit on top of the castle and give the surrounding lands their life force, also fly off in all directions. Thankfully though, the good glove, Glover, changes the crystals into rubber balls so that they land safely.

Now Glover must find the crystals and put them back into the castle to restore life to the land, avoiding the bad glove who is out to stop him and take over the kingdom and the wizard's power.

Nahoc hops, bounces, and dribbles his way through this game, taking advantage of a conveniently-placed crystal to skip right to the boss room in every stage.

If you want to see more of Glover, we also have an all stages run.

The name's Bond... James Bond...

007 is ready for his incredibly popular first person shooter for the Nintendo 64. Rather than taking the usual stealthy strategy, secret agent 007 treats this first person shooter like any other and runs around shooting things with a complete disregard for human life, including his own.

While this run seems to be slower than the previous run, it actually plays all the regular levels faster and also plays two additional bonus levels!

Award - First edition TAS of 2016Award - N64 TAS of 2016Award - TAS of 2016
Mario Kart 64 is the first 3D game in the Mario Kart series, released in 1996 by Nintendo. Widely regarded as classic, it still retains a following to this day.

A run 7 years in the making, this Mario Kart 64 TAS features weatherton completing all 4 Grand Prix Cups in under 21 minutes. Due to the nature of the game, knowledge of the internal code allows for heavy RNG manipulation, getting even the most unlikely items on the first try. This and the incredible movement precision are used to create crazy shortcuts, often completing laps in mere seconds.

The submission text contains highly detailed information about the strategies of every track, the RNG manipulation and a lot of other information about the run.


You can watch the complete run being played back on a console.

At AGDQ 2014, the Mushroom Cup of this run was presented on console, and at AGDQ 2016, the Star Cup was presented.

Mischief Makers (1997) is one of the rare 2D sidescrollers released for Nintendo 64. The player controls Marina, the robotic maid of a lecherous and absent-minded professor Theo, who has a habit of being kidnapped constantly. The ones who abduct him every now and then are Clancers from the evil Empire. (And make sure to watch out for the plot twist at the end!)

Marina is quite a versatile cyborg. She can boost continuously in the air, ride vehicles, slide and jump like a maniac, and most importantly, shake. Make no mistake, you'll be seeing Comicalflop shake this thing, and even that thing quite a lot in this fast-paced run.

The game is broken down into 52 short areas, each of them having a separate timer. Because of this, the author aims to optimize the movie for shortest in-game time. Each stage is given a rank based on how fast the stage was completed; this run gets all S Ranks.

The game has some emulation errors, such as unnatural amounts of lag in some stages, and graphical glitches. See the author's comments for more details.

Paper Mario, first released in Japan in August of 2000, is a role-playing game for the Nintendo 64. Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach and stolen the Star Rod, which allows him to grant himself any wish. To counteract the power of the Star Rod, Mario must locate the seven Star Spirits, who can combine their power to stop Bowser's evil plans.

Numerous tricks and glitches allow a tool-assisted speedrun to skip large portions of the game and beat it impressively quickly. See the author's comments for more on this.

For more tool-assisted Paper Mario action, check out the run of The Thousand-Year Door by the same author.

At first there were 70 stars, because Bowser demanded it. Then there were 16 stars, because MIPS the Rabbit demanded it. Then there was 1 star, because Bowser's Sub demanded it. Then there were no stars, but 2 keys, because the door leading to the castle basement demanded it. Now there is 1 key because the viewers are impatient and demanded the game be quicker.

As with many other runs on this site, the goal of pure speed has resulted in the complete breaking of the game. Very little of the game's normal play remains. If you'd like to see more of what Super Mario 64 has to offer, see the "70 Stars, no BLJ" run or the "120 Stars" run.

This movie is 2457 frames faster than the previous movie due to the recently discovered and long sought after 'Moat Skip', new strategies and extreme optimizations made possible by parallel universes as explained in the submission text.

Super Mario 64 has a history of publications on this site. If you wish to see how it unfolded since the beginning, see the page SM64TASHistory. Also, if you have a hankering to see MIPS the rabbit, the 16 stars route has been improved.

You can also see this movie played back on a real console.

Super Smash Bros. began a series of games that mixes characters from several Nintendo-made games into a unique fighting game. It relies not on wearing down the opponent's "life" but increasing damage until he or she can be literally knocked off the stage. Wildly popular, this game has inspired many lazy days of casual multiplayer gaming but also intense competitive tournaments that happen to this day.

This is the first speed-oriented TAS of this game to be published here. DennisBalow shows off super fast gameplay with Kirby on the hardest difficulty. The Japanese version was used for even faster attacking and movement speed.

We also have a Yoshi run that aims for entertainment instead of speed.

In the direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link is back to being a lone boy without a fairy. One day, he is attacked by Skull Kid and his two fairies, Tatl and Tael, and they steal his ocarina. After pursuing Skull Kid, he is transformed into a Deku Scrub. Link continues pursuing Skull Kid all the way to the Clock Town (now with the help of Tatl the fairy, a more 'in yo face' version of Navi).

This TAS of the game is the result of three years of hard work and many restarts due to new discoveries. It features many never-before-seen tricks and glitches, and completes every dungeon without getting a single boss key. Everything is done out of order, in ways that will amaze the viewer and keep them on the edge of their seat the entire way through, including a whole new way of warping between the areas in the game's over-world, and a new method of traveling that makes even the longest stretches in the game seem tiny.

The author beats the game in two 3-day cycles (the previous route used three), and does so in a way that puts every past attempt at a 6-day challenge to shame.

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread. Also, if you know the cutscenes of this game by memory at this point and would rather watch an encode without them, it's your lucky day.

Award - Nintendo 3D TAS of 2014
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.

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.
