- Uses a suboptimal character

- Genre: Platform
After having been resurrected by dark priest Shaft, Dracula set out to destroy Richter Belmont's home village and kidnap some of the important characters for him to rescue. One of them is Maria Renard, a 12-year-old vampire huntress who is used as the player character in the second half of the movie after getting freed by Richter.

Despite her prepubescent age, Maria is faster and stronger than Richter, and one can only guess how she managed to fall a victim to kidnappers in the first place. Unfortunately, all of her speed advantages become nullified by a lengthy cutscene following her release, making this TAS slightly longer than the Richter mode.

This is a 2.5 second improvement to the previous movie.

- Uses a level password
- Genre: Action

Contrary to the other Rondo of Blood TASes on the site, this one not only goes through the hurdles of saving three useless villagers from their prisons (with some of said prisons even resembling their regular habitats), but also plays through all the picturesque levels just to prove that Maria isn't really a suboptimal character. No videogame character fighting dark priests by stoning them to death with small white birds should ever be called suboptimal.

If you want to see a shorter run through the game, we suggest watching these: Richter any% in 23:18, Maria any% in 24:22.

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (1993) is an important milestone in the Castlevania series and a predecessor to the even more successful Symphony of the Night. This game was ported two years later to the SNES as Dracula X.

In this installment of a popular TV show, a miserable little pile of secrets known as Richter Belmont is once again called to have it at a savior mankind needs so ill. Armed with his trusty key and a question mark nicknamed 'Vampire Killer', he makes sure no candleholder remains standing in Dracula's castle. Eager to just get it over with, he plows through without as much as a slightest regard to his purple-haired girlfriend and some other people still imprisoned there. It seems what little time one has to spare in a TAS is best spent moonwalking and yelling at the screen, anyway.

A slower version of this run taking only the regular stages is available. Due to this movie being faster, that submission was cancelled, yet there are arguably more entertaining moments in the cancelled submission (the author recommends stage 4 in particular).

Rather different from both the NES version and arcade versions of this game, this version of Double Dragon 2 features higher resolution graphics much closer to that of the SNES iterations of the series. Notably, many of the glitches present in the NES version are absent here, yielding slower yet arguably no less entertaining gameplay.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Shooter
Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2017
Final Zone II is a top down shooter in which you control various soldiers throughout the game. The objective of the game is to fight an enemy army led by "ZOD", who is a mass murderer and killed some of your commando friends. There are several manga-style cutscenes in the game, all of which have been really cheesily dubbed to English. The game also features the "best" song to ever feature in a video game, that is, Momoco's theme (which you'll hear in Round 4).

Mothrayas defeats Ruman in record time.

If you want to see the game being riffed along with all the cutscenes, we recommend watching the videos by retsupurae:

Part 2

- Best ending
- Uses easiest difficulty
- Genre: Action
In this obscure title for an obscure platform, our ninja hero must fight his way through a horde of enemy ninja who attack from every angle in order to rescue the girl.

Join arukAdo in this exciting adventure as he slices through his enemies and their defenses like a hot chainsaw through fresh butter (and beats up the girl too).

We also have an alternate version of this run which plays on hard difficulty. The only difference between difficulty levels is enemy hit points, which is normally grounds for playing on the easiest possible difficulty (to improve speed and entertainment).

Prince of Persia is a 2D platformer that is commonly regarded as a progenitor of the cinematic platform genre. Rather than following the more common jump-and-run mechanics, it focuses on careful advancement through fairly complex levels, emphasizing the protagonist's vulnerability and survival aspect. Rotoscoping technique is used to give more realism to the animation of the characters' movements.

This run by Challenger, done on the TurboGrafx CD port of the game, defeats Jaffar in record time, by setting the speed to the fastest one available.
