ActRaiser (1990) is a critically acclaimed SNES game which combines two major gameplay phases: a god simulator and an action platformer. You play the role of God "the Master", who awakens from his slumber only to find that the human civilization is completely wrecked, and hordes of demons are roaming free. The Master has two roles: to open new locations for humans to inhabit, and to deal with the catastrophes happening there, which usually have something to do with grotesque monsters, as represented in side-scrolling action stages, and to help develop the civilization anew by controlling it during the overhead phases through a bow-wielding cupid who also repels mischievous demons, as presented in the form of an overhead simulation.

This is an improvement of 14:11.48 over the original run of this game from 2004.


Commentary from the authors is available as subtitles in the MKV and YouTube video, or through this script if watching in the emulator.

You play the role of God "the Master", who awakens from his slumber only to find that the human civilization is completely wrecked, and hordes of demons are roaming free.

This run plays through the "Special Mode," which is a mode where the god simulators are removed and the levels become harder. The Japanese version is used for even higher difficulty.

If you enjoyed this movie, be sure to check out the run of the regular mode.

The Animaniacs are a cartoon comedy trio, known for old school Warner Brothers style comedy mixed with some scathing political commentary.

This platformer of their namesake captures their personality well, with some comical and colorful animations. The author adds in his own techniques of walking on air and creating small scenes within the game while playing, especially during boss fights.

This game has a built in roulette, which is manipulated to always give the best result, especially invincibility when needed for tougher bosses.

The evil genius, Silas Volkmire, and his sidekick, the Dark Queen, have kidnapped the daughter of a well-renowned scientist and Zitz, one of the Battletoads. Now the remaining 'Toads, Rash and Pimple, must rescue the two captives and stop the deadly duo from fulfilling their plans to control the world.

In this movie the toads seem to recall that they are Ninja Turtles rivals. Whenever they snatch a minute, they master their martial arts techniques, not caring that it's not ninjutsu and just straight brutality.

The author, Dooty, improves the previous movie by 48.35 seconds thanks to better manipulation and some new tricks.

Breath of Fire was Capcom's first traditional RPG. It follows a boy named Ryu, one of the last surviving members of an ancient race with the ability to transform into mighty dragons, as he searches the world for his sister. Along the way, Ryu meets other warriors who share his quest and comes into conflict with the Dark Dragon Clan, a militaristic empire who seeks to take over the world by reviving a mad goddess.

Using a whole lot of planning and luck manipulation, janus completes this long game in just under four and a quarter hours.

Bubsy is on a hunt to get back his yarn, which the Woolies stole.

Bubsy can run very fast, but unfortunately he almost never gets a chance to, because there are obstacles everywhere. Unlike most bobcats, Bubsy can die by touching anything remotely dangerous, like eggs or water. Also unlike regular bobcats, he can glide through the air, has a t-shirt with an exclamation mark, and a smile you'll just be dying to wipe off his face.

This new movie by Acmlm is almost a minute and a half faster than the previous movie

- Genre: Platform
Castlevania: Dracula X (1995), released in Japan as Akumajō Dracula XX, is actually a toned-down remake of a PC Engine title known as Rondo of Blood (1993). It stars Richter Belmont, supposedly a son of Juste Belmont from Harmony of Dissonance, on a mission to save Annette (said to be his girlfriend) and Maria Renard (a young vampire huntress said to be his girlfriend's sister), along with a number of their fellow villagers, from imprisonment by Dracula (said to be the villain) and his minions.

Unfortunately, in this SNES port Richter isn't too much of a fast walker - unlike his father and the later Belmont clan descendants - so his fastest way of moving is constant backflipping (so don't be surprised by the author's choice of traveling method).

This movie is a 11.48 second improvement to the previous version by pirate_sephiroth.

While Chrono Trigger (1995) usually takes days to complete, Crono decided he'd rather not have to sit through all the unnecessary stuff, like long cutscenes, unskippable boss fights and key plot events, so he did it in three minutes instead.

The 18-minute improvement comes from utilizing mid-frame resets which were recently implemented in lsnes.

Chrono Trigger is one of the most dearly loved games from the SNES library. In it, you play as Crono and set off on a journey through time to save the world from the villainous Lavos.

The game can be ripped apart in a matter of minutes through advanced save corruption techniques, but in this movie the author forgoes this exploit in order to play through more of the game, and does so in barely more than half the time of the last run in the same category. Don't expect this run-through to follow a coherent narrative any time soon, though — it still skips quite a lot of content.

From the opposite side of the usual formula of breaking a game to reach the credits as fast as possible, Saturn finishes Chrono Trigger in a single pass while trying to get as much done as possible without glitching the game out. Consequently this video actually looks like an otherwise normal playthrough by an extremely skilled player.

This run aims for maximal completion within reasonable constraints. This includes:

  • All forms of Spekkio (except the highest level) are defeated
  • All Tabs (stat upgrade items) are collected
  • All characters' Techs are learned
  • All the major sidequests are completed
  • At least 1 of every item is collected

It isn't technically possible to do everything possible in Chrono Trigger in a single playthrough, but this run aims to get most of it done.

Some very heavy experience grinding occurs between 2:16:45 and 2:26:18. Viewers may wish to skip through this segment of the video.

In Claymates, Clayton's father has developed a formula that can manipulate clay into animals. After he refuses to give the formula to a witch doctor, the witch takes off with the formula and Clayton's father and turns Clayton into a lump of clay. Despite his sorry condition, Clayton vows to save his father and embarks on a journey to defeat the witch.

Most of the gameplay consists of bouncing around the stages and transforming into different animals using bits of formula scattered throughout the level. Special abilities are also available that can change Clayton into animals that can take out enemies easier. Between stages, there is a mini-game where robots can be used to clear obstacles.

In this run, quietkane uses strategies such as taking damage and limiting the number of gems collected to save time on the end-level gem tally screen in order to finish this game as fast as possible.

Congo's Caper is a platform game developed and published by Data East and is the sequel to Joe & Mac.

Congo and his girl Congette were two monkeys happily living in the jungle when a magic ruby fell out of the sky and turned both of them into half-humans. The ruby also set free a demon-kid who promptly kidnapped Congette. Now it's up to the newly evolved Congo to hurry through the jungle and rescue her.

The author, Dooty, utilized a number of tricks and glitches to accomplish this goal quickly. For more information, see the author's comments.

Trying to strike a compromise with peace activists, the guy who destroys the world bare-chested has been ordered to stop an alien invasion while taking as few lives as possible. As such, this run completes Contra 3 while only destroying enemies and obstacles if they prevent advancement. This requires much more careful dodging than the other run that avoids the warp glitch does.

Our hero takes the dodging one step further by adding the limitation that he cannot shoot enemy projectiles. However, frustrated by the lack of carnage and by the political pressure, our hero lets off steam sometimes by shooting the scenery and doing entertaining dances and poses.

This run improves the previous publication by 25.40 seconds.

One of the best (and best known) shooters of the 16-bit era, Contra 3: The Alien Wars forgoes any semblance of plot devices in favor of good old fashioned shooting and platforming with some tough as nails bosses, especially in this, the hardest mode.

Apparently not happy with an already amazing movie, Cpadolf felt the need to go on yet another black op, optimizing his distortions of space and time on the way to a 173 frame improvement.

This movie uses a 'warping' glitch to complete the game. There is also the 2-player version, which does not.

The guy who has infinite supply of ammo and destroys worlds bare-chested is back again! And this time he has a shirt and a friend with him.

This very colorful movie by hero of the day plays through the game with both characters at the same time (which is far from trivial to do), and approximately 12 seconds faster than the previous run.

For a movie that completes the game even faster using a warping glitch, see this run.

- Takes damage to save time
- Uses easiest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
Cyborg 009 is based on the manga and anime of the same name, which began a long time ago. There are eight characters that you can use, but one of them is set and you can only choose two others for each mission.

The run uses 008 (Pyunma) and 005 (Geronimo) most of the time. 008 can jump forward quickly and swim in water, while 005 does heavy damage to bosses. Various power-ups are collected to level-up 009 (Joe) due to an event near the end of the game.

The run uses the easiest difficulty due to the final boss taking less time to beat.

If you play this game, it is recommended to level-up 009 first, and a lot.

Daffy Duck is at it again. In this game, he plays Duck Dodgers, a futuristic space "hero" who sets out to stop an invasion force by Marvin the Martian.

In this run, Gunty uses this game's interesting recoil and jet pack physics to fly through each of the stages at a very fast pace.

- Genre: Platform
Demon's Crest is the third installment of the Gargoyle's Quest series. The player controls Firebrand, who is scouring the Demon Realm for elemental Crests, which preside over different elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Time, and Heaven). When collected, these crests allow Firebrand to transform his shape at will and gain powerful new abilities and defenses.

Demon's Crest is notorious for some very difficult bosses. In this run, the author abuses boss weaknesses to the extreme by carefully switching Gargoyle forms as necessary. In addition, heavy luck manipulation was used during several encounters to make the otherwise troublesome boss fights look easier than a play through of Barney's Hide and Seek.

The SNES version of Aladdin (1993) follows the plot of this Disney movie much more closely than its Genesis counterpart.

Unlike in the other movie of this game, Jasmine wasn't happy with just being rescued by Aladdin; she made him spend a little time picking up some jewelry for her on the way. This movie aims to complete the game with all the red gems collected, which takes a little more time, but adds quite a bit to the entertainment value of the run. The core trick of this TAS is to abuse the parachute extensively to move faster than normal walking or jumping.

- Genre: Puzzle
Goof Troop (1993) is a cheerful puzzle game based on Disney show of the same name. The gameplay is somewhat similar to NES Legend of Zelda with its maze-like map filled with one-screen rooms, except this time the emphasis on puzzles is stronger, and you can play in co-op.

In this movie the authors control two characters (Goofy and Max) simultaneously. This allows for a good deal of team work as one character can go get an item while the other heads for the exit. When there is no multi-tasking to do, the authors do a good job performing antics with one or both of the characters.

This is a nearly 4 minute improvement over Frenom's previous movie. Improvements come from new tricks, better teamwork, luck manipulation and optimized movements.

Like the other video game adaptations of the 1967 Disney animated film The Jungle Book, the SNES version is a side-scrolling platformer starring Mowgli, the young boy raised by wolves in the jungle. Running, jumping, climbing, and swinging on vines, he must make his way through 11 levels. These include the jungle by day and by night, a village high in the trees, a waterfall, ape King Louie's realm and the fire-charred wasteland.

There are also runs published on the Genesis version and the NES version of this game.

This is the any% TAS of Donkey Kong Country 2. It aims for overall fastest completion and doesn't give a flying banana about bonus rooms. Warp barrels are used whenever possible, meaning a large part of almost every stage in the first two worlds is skipped.

This is an improvement of 1:38.04 over the previous movie due to some new tricks and major warping glitches exclusive to ROM version v1.1 (the previous run uses v1.0). See the submission text for a breakdown of all of the improvements.

This is the first entry of the 105% category of this game. By using a password to remove the 'DK' barrels, the game officially enters hard mode, and the maximum percent completion is obtained. For more Kong action, you can also view the pure speedrun that doesn't collect all items.

This is the fifth game of the series originally known as Dragon Warrior in the US; it remained untranslated until a port to the DS was released in 2008, where it received the name Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. It tracks the life of our hero, the son of Papas, over a large span of time from his adventurous childhood through tragic adolescence and a joyful marriage as he and his family fight to defeat evil.

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.

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.

Our description for the previous movie stated, "Although this being a speedrun (tool-assisted at that), most of the plot of the game is intact...". This time around, not so much. Thanks to some collision detection bugs, including one that shows 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.

Also unlike the previous movie, this one does use a death as a shortcut. However, the teddy bear survives this time around.

Family Feud (1993) follows the premise of the American TV show of the same name. Two families are pitted against each other in a contest aimed at guessing the results of a public survey. In the first two rounds, the first family member to press a button and give a concise answer that happens to be on the survey earns points. After that, this family can continue guessing answers on the survey, with control switching to the other family on incorrect guesses. After two rounds, the family with fewer points is disqualified, and the last round allows two members of the remaining family to list several of the existing survey answers in a very short time period.

Heisanevilgenius's family, The As, ignores all that and goes with elaborate and utter nonsense instead… only to find the host accepting their answers as correct. The other family, The Halls, doesn't even get the chance to insert a word, proving the racial prejudice of the host. Watch the game and see for yourself.

If you liked how the machine's text recognition system got abused in this movie, you must also check the troubles TAS brings the drawing recognition system into.

Note: Some answers contain coarse language.

Final Fantasy IV (renamed to Final Fantasy II in North-American publication) was a revolution to the RPG genre. It was the first to introduce the active battle system, among many other redeeming qualities.

This movie plays through the game in a mere 2 hours, 53 minutes and 14 seconds. It aims for real time, but has a secondary goal of lowest in-game time when that does not incur an expense in real time. The in-game completion time is 1:59:28.

The author also included many easter eggs, or surprise occurrences, throughout the movie. These have been detailed in the author's comments. We recommend reading the comments regarding this movie.

Note: This movie resets the game console a few times, first saving the game and then loading it, so to watch it on an emulator, you will need an emulator that supports recording the console resets.

This movie was made with the original English-language version. The downloadable encodes and this YouTube stream were encoded with the Action Replay code 0495DCFF, which keeps the music volume from decreasing while the game is paused. This greatly reduces the annoyance factor of constant pausing during battles, which is done to save time.

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.

Final Fantasy V is probably the least known of the Final Fantasy series on the SNES, because it was never published in the USA.

This movie plays through the game in three and a half hours. We recommend reading the author’s comments regarding this movie to understand the manipulation used.

The boss battles, including the last boss, might be somewhat anticlimactic in this movie due to the use of a one-hit-kill spell (L5 Doom) which was made to work by varying means in each battle.

Note: Because this game was never released in the USA and our rules regarding fan translations are a bit strict, all text in this movie is in Japanese.

Watch as two Final Fantasy games, V and VI (VI is also III in North-American publication), are beaten with one controller's input. Since FFVI takes longer to beat than FFV, the FFV run also beats a few optional bosses which are not fought in the single-game run of FFV. The two games finish at the same time.

Since FFV is only available in Japanese, FFVI is also played with the Japanese version. The (J) version of FFVI also has an equipment glitch which is not present in the (U) version. Otherwise, this run of FFVI is quite similar to our single-game FFVI movie.

Final Fantasy VI (renamed to Final Fantasy III in North-American publication) is arguably the most famous RPG on the SNES console. It is very much different from Mystic Quest, in more aspects than should be counted here.

This movie plays through the game in little over 4 hours by the means of advanced analysis of the game engine, and the abuse of certain game errors/features that give the ability to one-hit-knock-out even the strongest enemies ― most prominently (but not only) the Joker Doom lore from Setzer’s slot machine.

A glitch involving Relm’s sketch ability was not used in this run. It is highly questionable whether or not this glitch can actually be used to save time. Also the glitch cannot be performed on this version of the ROM.

The boss battles, including the last boss, might be somewhat anticlimactic in this movie due to the unusual attack technique, but besides being a very nice timeattack/TAS record, the movie is a nice trip down the memory lane for those who have played this game, and a graphically and especially musically pleasing experience for even those who haven't. This movie was made with the English-language version.

We recommend reading the author’s comments regarding this movie.

- Best ending
- Genre: Platform
Gekisou Sentai Car Ranger is a Power Rangers game released only in Japan. It uses the Sufami Turbo loader add-on for the SNES, making it even more obscure.

The game itself is rather short for a platformer. Only the yellow and red rangers are used due to their unique character advantages which allow them to complete the game faster than the other rangers. Unlike its predecessor, this run gets good ending by getting the minimum 250 parts necessary to form Racing Fusion RV Robo and defeat a transformed President Gynamo before he blows up the Earth. This results in the movie length being increased by 46.26 seconds. See the author's notes for more details.

As you might know, Konami realised they went a little overboard with the difficulty of the arcade version of Gradius III, so the SNES port got noticeably easier (and laggier). However, it still remains one of the hardest and most unforgiving shoot 'em ups released in its era.

This is Cpadolf's take at the shmupping carnage, resulting in a significant improvement in both speed and style over the previous movie by Krocketneo. In total, 2 minutes 53 seconds are saved thanks to lag reduction and faster boss fights. The author also kills a greater percentage of enemies (still not fully 100%, though — read the comments for more details).

The game is completed in Arcade mode (still a far cry from the actual arcade game), which is accessed by tapping A on the main menu screen. It is strongly recommended to read the congratulatory text appearing after the end credits. ;)

It's a quiet day at the Mikami Ghost Sweeping Company until a mysterious package arrives. It seems the kindly old storekeeper Yakuchin found a magic statue and figured it would best be kept in Mikami's hands. Of course, where there's magic, there's wealth (or something like that), so Reiko sets out to find the seven gems needed to complete the statue.

GS Mikami: Joreishi wa Nice Body is a side scrolling platform game based on the Ghost Sweeper Mikami manga and anime. The player controls Reiko who can fight off ghosts and monsters with her enchanted baton. The baton can be powered up to shoot lighting or icicles at an angle, but its power is lost if Reiko is hit. Reiko can only hold up to three special weapons, either a scroll that sucks enemies into it, or a gem that freezes time. Each case in the game is either one or two platforming levels long followed by a boss fight.

Hook, based on a movie of the same name, is a somewhat slow platformer game about small boys in tights killing pirates. Awesome!

The movie has just enough action to make it entertaining. Thankfully, there are many parts in the game where the player is forced to fly using fairy dust. The flying breaks up the normal pace of the game nicely.

Inspector Gadget is a cartoon series featuring a bumbling cyborg, his clever niece Penny and her super intelligent dog Brain. Despite his many useful abilities like helicoptering and a hand that comes out of his head, the Inspector must constantly rely upon Penny and Brain to defeat his arch-nemesis Dr. Claw week after week. However, in this game he must save Penny from several kidnappings without such aid. In another major departure from the television series, Dr. Claw's face is shown briefly.

The author abuses Inpector Gadget's gadgets to do things clearly not intended by the game designers. Whether floating through stages or grappling with his head-hand, large sections are skipped and bosses dispatched expeditiously.

This is an improvement of 16.60 seconds over the previous run by the same author due to general optimisation and more effort to reduce lag.

Judge Dredd is a platform action game based on the British comic book character of the same name and the 1995 movie that tarnished that name. The game was a multi system release so it fits the standard console jump/shoot/duck formula although it does add some unique twists such as wounding enemies so that they surrender and can be arrested.

The initial levels follow the plot of the movie with futuristic lawman Judge Dredd framed and sent to the Aspen penal colony from which he must escape and prove his innocence. Following the fight at the top of the Statue of Liberty that ended the film, the game continues on with levels and characters inspired by the comic book culminating with a battle against the Dark Judges on Deadworld.

Kaizo Mario (友人マリオ Yūjin Mario) is a Nicovideo phenomenon born from a person's desire to make his friend play his super-hard Mario hack and post the results on Nicovideo. By chance, this hack made its fame on Youtube when a team of Let's Play gamers obtained the hack and recorded a video of them playing it. The most well-known YouTube video in this series is the first part of ProtonJonSA's attempt of Special Stage 2 and his subsequent nervous breakdown.

Kaizo Mario World 3 (友人マリオ3 Yūjin Mario 3) is the third installment of the Kaizo Mario series. In addition to the video's popularity, the hack is well-done in comparison to the previous two.

Themes that are common to Kaizo hacks:

  • Extremely rigid windows of opportunity, with missed opportunities resulting in death.
  • Set-ups that demand the highest caliber of Super Mario World physics abuse.
  • Set-ups that require stunts that are tantamount to glitches.
  • Traps that cannot be foreseen without knowing that they exist, including but not limited to invisible blocks and being killed after apparently clearing a level.

In this run, ISM and Mister break the game completely with glitches, just as in the 96-exit TAS of Super Mario World. Said glitches involve making things appear out of nowhere, glitching through walls, and carrying Yoshi through to the next level, something not intended by the maker of this hack.

This is a game based on the completely "unique" concept of an evil boss trying to take over/destroy/do whatever with the world, and despite the Earth being filled with about 7 billion occupants, you are the only one who can stop it.

At first glance it may seem odd that, although the game is two player, only one player is used, and that's Player 2. Player 2 was chosen because her aerial attack gives an enormous speed boost. It is also one of the few attacks in video games that operates on frame precision, so smashing out a 30Hz rapid-fire on the controller will lay the beatdown pretty quickly.

That, combined with the fact that half the enemies in this game are of the standard "walk around and shoot" variety, allow the heroine to zip through the game with total reckless abandon. Few games allow a TASer to do that, so this is a rare opportunity indeed.

The game is eerily similar to Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X. It even has pick-throwing miners.

This is a 24 second improvement over the previous movie by the use of some new tricks. These are explained in the author's comments.

Important: This movie requires Snes9x 1.43 v15.3 or earlier. It desyncs on later versions.

Why, when I was your age, I had to take several buses to get to school, and carry a sword with me to fight off those evil creatures that attacked me on my way. You kids have it so easy...

This is an anime style platformer starring an American girl named Jo who has gone to Japan to attend a summer kendo school. In order to get to class on time, she has to fight off a barrage of monsters along the way.

Killer Instinct is a classic fighting game ported to the SNES from an arcade machine. It features an advanced combo system, rich pre-rendered graphics and nicely arranged music. However, the latter two were somewhat toned down in this version compared to the original.

In this movie, Spinal takes down his enemies by slicing them up, hitting them with their own abilities, and (gasp!) making them dance to music!

- Genre: Sport
Kirby is a spherical character, so naturally it makes sense that he should be whacked around like a golf ball. A ball that can absorb the powers of enemies and use them to his advantage, of course!

This run aims for best score, then fastest time. A lot of hole-in-ones are scored, even at great time expense.

Note that there is a second series of courses which are similar to the original set. These are played as well for sport, before attacking the final boss and winning.

This run is 1:52.25 minute faster than snc's previous TAS. There's no improvement in the number of hole-in-ones, but his secondary goal is done significantly faster!

Kirby Super Star is a consolidation of eight Kirby games in one. Since most of the games must be completed to reach the credits, this movie is fairly long.

The author, nitsuja, controls both players when applicable rather than letting the CPU operate the helper.

For those interested, the obsoleted movie uses only one controller. This accounts for the large time difference between the two movies.

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 game is about two characters, Chiaki and her reluctant demon servant Zenki. They have saved the world from the forces of darkness before, but apparently once is never enough. Chiaki has a vision of five cloaked figures and knows that only she and Zenki can stop them. They set off at once to track down the demon leaders.

Watch as Dooty rushes through this game in just over 13 minutes using many of Zenki's flashy attacks. Along the way, some stone monuments need to be destroyed in order to proceed. For more details, see the author's comments.

Note: The author plays in Normal mode since Hard mode is not available until you've already beaten the game once. Also, Normal mode reduces the amount of enemies on screen, so it has less lag than Hard mode.

The objective of Lamborghini: American Challenge is to become the champion of illegal street racing. The player speeds through street traffic, while avoiding speed traps, and makes his way across the finish line first.

Instead, here laranja uses a glitch to gain thousands of dollars by losing a race. Then, he buys the best equipment, enabling him to drive very, very fast. Specifically, he is now able to complete the timed races that are required to beat the game. If you're looking for a run of a racing game that drives 310 MPH on icy roads, look no further—you have it right here!

In this version, the author makes an improvement of over 2 minutes by skipping more of the 2nd race.

Lethal Enforcers is a rail shooter with graphics made from digitized photographs. This controversial use of photorealistic enemies helped earn this title one of the first MA-17 ratings for video games and kept it off some toy store shelves.

You control Don Marshall, a Chicago cop who is called in to help stop a major crime organization that has invaded the city. Armed with his standard-issue service revolver, he sets out to stop this growing crime wave and save the day.

The bad guys pop out at a fixed rate, so shooting them faster only speeds up the boss fights.

Lethal Weapon for the SNES is one of many licensed titles made by Ocean Software. It's a Shooter/Platformer that constantly tests the player's endurance with swarms of enemies and puzzles. For each mission you can choose the appropriate character. Walking around - jumping and swimming - kicking or shooting the opponents you have to stop the crimes in your beloved L.A.

This game may not be too speedy in real-time play, but Cooljay makes it look pretty fast and smooth, with the help of some nice glitches. The music and graphics are also rather enjoyable.

In it, you must collect Infinity Gems (Also known as Soul Gems), which possess special powers, before they fall into the wrong hands. Luckily, you can equip the ones you have to help you find the ones you don't. This game should not be confused with an arcade fighting game with a similar name.

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow (1996) was among the later games released on SNES, which had its positive impact on production values. As a result, the game sports remarkable design and animation quality.

In addition to that, it stars Donald Duck in the role of Maui Mallard, a detective with an alter ego of a blindfolded ninja called Cold Shadow, on the task of retrieving the lost Shabum Shabum idol on a remote tropical island. And no, the plot doesn't get more sensible from that point on.

The author, funnyhair, improves on the previous run by nearly two minutes by optimizing movement and boss fights, among other things. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes.

Once again, it's up to Mega Man to destroy Dr. Wily's latest army of Robot Masters, only this time on the SNES. You would think poor old Wily would learn from his past six mistakes, however this isn't so. On the up-side, we get another superb TAS of this famous series.

This is an improvement of approximately 30 seconds of in-game time thanks to some new glitches, including using the Rush Coil to wall climb and abusing Noise Crush to instantly kill some bosses.

This version plays on the North American version of Mega Man 7 whereas the previous movie plays on the Japanese version. This change affects times outside of the player's control but which still get counted towards the movie's length, making this movie appear longer than the previous movie.

Originally thought to be an April Fools joke, it turns out that Capcom really did hide a one-hit-kills weapon in Mega Man X. That platform in Armored Armadillo's stage always did seem a little strange.

Unlike the later games, collecting the Hadoken is much more time consuming compared to the ability to obliterate the mandatory Reploid rematches and fortress bosses. Nevertheless this run is still faster than the first any% run ever published.

If you want to see more of the blue-clad hero, we recommend watching the any% run.

Since moving to the SNES 16-bit land, Mega Man has taken the secret identity X, but everyone knows it's still him because he's the only blue robot who shoots three pellets at a time at other robots, steals their weapons, and zips through walls.

FractalFusion plays this game a bit differently than usual. He abuses a failed password in order to obtain all weapons before the intro stage. Because the run does not collect the dash boots, Mega Man X spends the entire run walking through the stages, which provides more opportunities for entertainment than usual.

Since moving to the SNES 16-bit land, Mega Man has taken the secret identity X, but everyone knows it's still him because he's the only blue robot who shoots three pellets at a time at other robots and steals their weapons.

FractalFusion takes the game apart with a new route, new strategies, nasty bugs and more optimal movements.

For extra curiosity, there is a page "Mega Man X Tricks" that explains some of the tricks that are and/or can be used in the X series games.

If you want to see more of the blue-clad hero, we recommend watching the 100% completion run.

In the latest in silly ideas turned into inspirations for our ever-dedicated TASers, this movie takes one controller and wires it into three SNES emulators at once; the same input is used to play 3 games simultaneously with one controller. There are also animations constructed with spare controllers during this movie.

This movie beats the first three Mega Man X games with 100% completion each (an improvement on its predecessor, which beat only the first two games and without 100% completion).

If you like this movie, there are other movies that beat four games with one controller!

Note: There might be a visual anomaly during the battle with Serges in X 2. This is an emulator bug relating to the Cx4 chip used in the Mega Man X 2 cartridge.

Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the encode. Track 1 is the combined audio of all 3 games panned so that the left side is MMX1, center is MMX2, and right is MMX3. Track 2 contains MMX1's audio, track 3 contains MMX2's audio, and track 4 contains MMX3's audio.

Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility.

Unlike the other movie, in this, FractalFusion does not collect any of X's upgrades, but does rescue Zero. The bosses near the end are no longer defeated in a single hit, showing off more of their AI.

Due to the items collected, there is an easter egg at the end.

Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility. These include a grappling hook, a fast mid-air dash and a weapon that can transform enemies into platforms. The authors take special care to ensure that when there is a situation in which a weapon could help them progress quicker, they make use of it.

This run improves the previous version by about 23 seconds of game-time. The previous run used the Japanese ROM, and the shorter cutscenes in that version make the improvement less apparent.

This movie aims for the fastest time possible. However, because the shōryūken (flame uppercut) used towards the end of the movie saves so much time, and because to get it the authors must first collect 100% of items such as Heart Tanks, Sub Tanks, and Item Capsules, this movie could be seen as a 100% run. Zero Parts are not required for the shōryūken, and thus they are not collected.

If you would like to watch this game played collecting Zero's parts, but not collecting any of X's, see this run.

The page Mega Man X Tricks explains some of the tricks that can be used in the X series games.

Mega Man X3 is the third game in the Mega Man X series, and the last one to be released on the SNES.

This is the second "100%" run of this game. agwawaf speeds through the game very rapidly, collecting all heart tanks, subtanks, Ride Armor modules, upgrades and finally the Golden Armor. However, Zero is kept alive and his Z-Saber is not obtained, so the author could get the best ending.

This run is 7 seconds faster than the predecessor movie, both by using some new tricks and playing with more precision.

Metal Max Returns is the remake of the NES game Metal Max. It features better graphics and sound, revised areas, references to Metal Max 2, and slightly decreased difficulty.

Because of the requirements for completion in this game, this movie is quite different from the original Metal Max (which was TASed by the same author, suwei). For a list of the differences and more information, see the author's notes.

Metal Warriors is a battlemech action game with platforming elements, similar to Cybernator in concept. The game's distinctive feature is the ability to pilot six different mechs, which vary considerably in gameplay style. Each of these mechs is equipped with its own melee weapons, firearms, and shields. The mechs also have different movement capabilities: for instance, one can roll as a ball, another can walk on walls and ceilings, and one is an agile flier.

In addition, the player can eject from their mech and fly using a jetpack. Although they are extremely vulnerable in this form, the player needs to be out of the mech to accomplish certain objectives, such as activating switches.

In this run, Dooty shoots, stomps, and crashes his way through the missions, using smooth tool-assisted movement and a few glitches to defeat the Dark Axis in under 15 minutes.

Power Rangers, an immensely popular set of TV series from the 90s, naturally spawned a massive number of tie-in products. Given the nature of the show, it should not be surprising that a good number of beat-'em-up games are counted amongst their number. There are a total of five levels and two follow-up robot fights in this game.

This run saves 1:21.08 over the previous publication by using new movement and attack strategies; details are available in the author's comments. Kimberly is, as always, the fastest ranger, and is used on every level.

We also have a "playaround" run, which aims to demonstrate as many tricks and fatalities in the game as possible.

Like all of the Mortal Kombat games, MKII is about warriors fighting in a tournament for inspecific power and fame. Shang Tsung is chosen for his ability to transform into other characters.

This movie aims to demonstrate as many quirks and fatalities of the game as possible. Examples include two Shang Tsungs with a Raiden child, a headless Reptile eating Kitana's head and a bloody clone of Jax. The AI is also humiliated.

The author's comments page is a definitely recommended reading for this movie.

Out of This World is a strange and difficult game. It was one of only a few SNES games to use loading screens.

This run obsoletes the previous movie by 1585 frames.

Quoting bobucles's analysis of the game:
Oh, this game is great. I remember that at the beginning, the gun has exactly enough shots to make it past that first door. Shield, big blast, and kill the guards, then the gun runs out. Waste any, and you die. Classic.

Out to Lunch is a little-known, very fast-paced platforming game where you play as a chef whose food has escaped and your goal is to recapture the food items from around the world. However, this is difficult due to strict time limits, a small amount of lives, and tough enemies that can either kill you or infect the food and turn it against you.

Of course, that only makes this tool-assisted run by nitsuja look all the more impressive. Those unfamiliar with the game are advised to read the author's comments to help understand the game and enjoy the movie more.

Our young hero Chezni, on a bet, enters and explores a forbidden tower and manages to activate an ancient machine deactivated 10,000 years ago. Naturally, he spends the next two and a half hours trying to figure out how to turn it off again.

This RPG is unusual because the player's health is used to cast magic spells, so there is no separate "MP" stat in this game. Rather than having a list of spells you learn, you instead gain the skills of several spirits; each spirit has its own spell, or you can combine two spirits to make a different spell. (In this run, you'll mostly see Chezni use the Fire Spirit, especially since repeated use of a spirit makes its magic stronger.) You can also recruit mercenaries to join your party at different points in the game, similar to The 7th Saga.

The author, janus completes this game an amazing 24 minutes faster than the previous run, largely due to massive use of AtkBack which makes enemies take a fraction of the damage that they inflict on the player. With this spell, the end bosses basically beat themselves up! There is also much more manipulation to minimize the number of random encounters. See the submission comments for more details.

In this strange game, you play a character named Plok who wants to get rid of all the fleas on his home island. Plok has the ability to shoot his arms and legs to harm enemies. To complete some stages, Plok has to kill all the fleas in the stage before the goal flag appears at the end of the stage.

Plok is in a hurry, so he looks for opportunities to travel faster. He finds slides lying around almost everywhere. He finds nice presents making him a lot faster. He finds tiny holes in the Flea Pit for big shortcuts. He finds helpful sawblades, nice guys pushing him into the right direction, and even a lovely fish which helps him climb a mountain. Even water helps him climb a mountain to discover one more slide. He also takes advantage of the fact that he can do bigger jumps without his legs.

Though the improvement over the previous movie seems to be only 2:15.16 minutes, it's actually almost 4 gameplay minutes, because the previous movie did not complete the credits.

Another version of Prince of Persia... it has quite good music.

The gymnastic master, the future prince of Persia, defies the odds and beats this game in record time.

Interestingly, this game only animates at around 12-20 fps (15 fps on average), contrary to most SNES games, which animate at 60 fps.

Selected comments from the author:
Prince of Persia 2 is one of the most challenging games ever made. Maybe this is because of the terribly imprecise control, the nonsensical puzzles, and the character's amazing inability to survive falling any distance. There are no pits with spikes this time around, apparently there were enough complaints about the ones in the original Prince of Persia, but unfortunately, non-spiky pits are just as deadly as spiky ones, and the new traps are far more sinister.

Ranma Nibunnoichi - Chougi Ranbu Hen is one of three Ranma 1/2 fighting games that was released for the SNES. It was planned to be released in the US as Ranma 1/2 II: Anything Goes Martial Arts by DTMC, but DTMC went out of business. A direct translation would be "Super Skill Wild Dance Chapter", but it is commonly referred to as "Super Hard Battle". The story involves collecting the 12 ingredients of the Maneki Neko, which will then grant a wish.

This run does what it can to show off the game's combo system while still completing the battles quickly.

In Riddick Bowe Boxing, you can face off against a slew of imaginary fighters as well as Riddick Bowe himself. The game features both a career mode, where you rise through the ranks until you battle Bowe, and an exhibition mode where you can choose any two boxers to face off.

In this playaround, laranja chooses exhibition mode and picks the worst boxer to battle against Bowe. Normally, it would be nearly impossible for him to win. Using tool-assisted precision, not only does he beat Bowe, but he does it while landing every hit and taking no damage. In the process, he toys around with the champion until the match is over.

Every 300 years, the Star of Death blocks the sun and all newborn lives die. No living thing could escape this fate. But one day, a baby survived, grew up, became the Devil King, and took over the world. He even opened the Abyss Gate and released the devil lords within before suddenly vanishing, leaving the world under the control of the four devil lords.

300 years later, the Death Eclipse hit the world again, and one baby survived again. This child grew up and became the Holy King, and with the support of many friends, drove the four demon lords back to the Abyss and resealed the Abyss Gate. It is now 10 years after the next Death Eclipse, and the whole world is eagerly watching for the new child of destiny. Will it be a Devil King or a Holy King?

You can play through the story controlling any one of the eight main characters - Julian, Monica, Mikhael, Harid, Katarina, Thomas, Elena, or Sarah. The story is common for all eight characters, and they often join together and share the same piece of the story.

The author, knbnitkr, completes the game in only 21:59.65 minutes by using a materialization bug to glitch out the game and skip right to the last dungeon. For more information about this bug, see the author's comments.

Shapeshifting dogs. Evil robots. Alchemy. Cheesy B movie references. These are all par for the course in Secret of Evermore, a very loose "sequel" to Secret of Mana. The story follows a boy that is thrust into a virtual world and finds himself with no immediate means to escape. As the boy travels, the geography changes to reflect certain eras of real-life history, adding a unique aspect to the game.

The author has aimed for fastest time with 100% completion.

A Secret of Mana TAS has finally come to TASVideos!

Secret of Mana is a widely popular action RPG published by Square. It is internationally regarded as the first game of the Mana series, though the Japanese title is Seiken Densetsu 2, so it is the sequel of Final Fantasy Adventure. It utilizes real-time battles like many other action RPGs while including some unique features such as the Ring Command and multiplayer action.

Touch-me beats the game very quickly, using three players simultaneously and a whole host of glitches. For instance, many bosses can be hit for 999 instant damage using a charge counter glitch, and certain plot points are skipped. See the submission comments for more details.


The YouTube encode contains commentary from the author in the form of hard subtitles.

Seiken Densetsu 3 is a RPG about your typical ragtag group of young adventurers that totally lack any survival instinct; at least that'd explain why they never bother to get any protective gear. Our three chosen champions of goodness are tasked with rescuing the eight elemental spirits from the clutches of evil and using their power to save the world. Though it turns out that nobody is able to count as we find in fact nine spirits...

We recommend reading the author's notes; they contain a lot of very good information.


The provided MP4s and YouTube stream feature subtitles, allowing those of us who don't speak Japanese to figure out what's going on.

Skyblazer (1994) is a relatively obscure gem of a platformer released for the SNES, featuring quite decent music and visuals among other things.

Following the game's truly original plot, Sky, a cocky young hero, has to free a princess sorceress kidnapped by an evil deity Ashura. In order to do so, he must traverse a non-linear world, collecting various spells, abilities, and powerups along the way. Helping him is the eloquently named Old Man, who teaches young Sky to memorize patterns — just after delivering another insult.

This is 24.3 seconds faster than the previous run, which used a beta version of the game. The final version has longer loading times and more lag, but conversations can be finished more quickly, which accounts for most of the time saved. See the submission comments for details.

Soul Blazer is an RPG made by Enix considered to be somewhat related to its predecessor: ActRaiser. The main character is an angel sent to destroy invading monsters and release the captured souls of innocent people.

In this series, every action in monster lairs directly affects non-combat areas, and vice versa. That being said, much planning was needed for this run.

The ending is very long and requires user input, so the movie's length is about 13 minutes longer than what might be considered beating the game.

In Spanky's Quest, you take control of a bubble wielding monkey named Spanky. When you bounce a bubble, it changes colors, and depending on what color it is when it is popped, a certain type of ball comes out, which can be used to attack enemies. Each level is completed when you collect a certain amount of keys and open the door at the end.

In this run, the author, FFGamer86, uses a glitch to transport a key from one bubble to another, a trick nearly impossible to execute in real time. To see the other tricks he used, please see the author's notes.

Spider-Man/X-Men: Arcade's Revenge is an action platformer starring the iconic Marvel characters Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, and Gambit. After the X-Men get kidnapped by Arcade, Spider-Man must deactivate bombs, infiltrate the abandoned building where they were taken, and confront Arcade. From there, Arcade puts each hero to the test as they navigate through his bizarre "Murderworld" until Spider-Man can finally confront the madman head-on.

This infamous game was made by LJN, and although it might be better than many others from that label, it still has serious gameplay flaws that make it frustrating, let alone incredibly difficult. However, it works great for a TAS. Using careful precision and many exploits, the team of jaysmad and Brandon make it through this "Juggernaut" in less than 24 minutes. Please see the authors' notes for a detailed breakdown of the levels, a couple of glitches that were unused in the run, and a video of a camera hack for the Black Queen fight that mostly happened off-screen.

Please also check out the run for Wolverine, which is a NES game, also made by LJN, where most of Wolverine's gameplay came from.

One of those hard-to-emulate games because of the hardware assistance provided on the actual cartridge, Star Fox is a well-known 3D shooter. Avoiding obstacles can be tricky on the digital directional pad, so some of the stunts seen are impressive to anyone who knows how hard this game can be.

Emulation of this game is not correct. Lag present on the SNES is not represented in this run. Expect the speed to be higher than actually seen on a real console. For this reason, the audio track lags severely behind the rest of the run. As a result, some of the bosses can be defeated before the boss music begins.

- Genre: RPG
Tri-Ace's Star Ocean 1 is an RPG game similar to Namco's Tales of Phantasia or Square's Final Fantasy VI.

Because it was only released in Japan, and the first (almost) complete fan translation of the game was finished only a few years ago, this game isn't well known in western countries. Moreover, it has only been supported by SNES emulators for a short time, due to a graphics compression chip used in the game to fit the huge amount of beautiful graphics into the 6 MB ROM chip.

This is a tool-assisted speedrun of the Japanese version (the rules of the TASvideos site forbid the use of fan-translations when making speedruns).

We are sorry for the broken speech in the game intro. This is an emulation glitch. (Yes, the game actually includes English dialogue, which coincidentally has an identical twin in Star Trek.)

For a guide of the strategy used in this run, please read the author's comments.

As usual with RPG runs, we recommend everyone to first play through this game before watching the movie. It will normally take a few days to complete the game once ― a few months to uncover all the features: secret characters and abilities and items. Beware, it's fun, and addictive.

The second installment of Adventure Island for SNES. Unlike most of the games in the Adventure Island series (except for the fourth NES game), this game features a large overworld and side-scrolling stages without time limits. In this game, fruit isn't important at all, but you must find items and beat bosses in a certain order to progress further in the game.

There are also runs of the first SNES Adventure Island game, and the NES Adventure Island games.

A run of the first Super Bomberman game. The player controls two characters alone and manages to complete the game very quickly due to exploiting the very long invulnerability periods at the beginning of every stage. Actually, the only places where you can see the characters becoming vulnerable are the boss battles!

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Puzzle
When played at full speed, Super Bomberman 2 is a straightforward action game, but if it's played in slow motion, it becomes an extremely tactical puzzle game. The author of this movie uses several tactics that are difficult to understand if one is watching the movie at full speed. These include setting up chain reactions and clearing up the end of the level before even reaching it. To get a better grasp of the techniques used, read the author's comments.

This is an improvement of exactly 2 minutes and 19 seconds over the predecessor movie. Most of the time is saved from lag management, new tricks and better strategy.

This hack of Super Mario World, created with Lunar Magic, contains a Star World which contains themed levels that connect to various locations on the map. Like the original Super Mario World, these levels can be used as a makeshift warp zone. This movie demonstrates this path - navigating the Star World to charge straight to Bowser, leaving much of the game untouched.

This movie is 2.68 seconds shorter than the previous movie, see the comparison video and the authors' comments for more details.

Arguably one of the most well known and well developed SNES hacks in existence, Super Demo World puts Mario into a new realm that spans well beyond his original adventure.

Features of the hack include:

  • the ability to store unconventional items in the reserve box, such as a koopa, springboard, message box, or vine
  • 120 exits in total, including two secret worlds
  • creative and challenging level design, with some puzzle elements thrown in
  • "new" graphics (mostly backgrounds taken from other games, such as Donkey Kong Country 3 and Mega Man X)

In this run, PangaeaPanga improves upon the previous movie by more than five minutes using newly discovered glitches and a slower overworld route, which counterintuitively saves time.

To see a much shorter run completing the minimum number of stages, see this run.

Arthur's fiancée is once again kidnapped by demons soon before their marriage. Once more Sir Arthur must brave the forces of the underworld in his skivvies. Watch as Ferret Warlord runs through this infamously hard game in record time!

Normally, to fight the final boss of the game, you must play through the game twice. To make the movie less repetitive, Ferret Warlord uses a code to start at the final bosses of the first playthrough. Furthermore, the player must have a special weapon in order to fight the final boss, and this weapon can only be found when the player has fully upgraded armor. Ferret Warlord obtains this weapon at the end of the first autoscrolling level.

Super Gussun Oyoyo is a puzzle game best described as a mixture of Lemmings and Tetris. Two treasure hunters named Gussun and Oyoyo are exploring a dungeon when an earthquake occurs, causing the dungeon to begin sinking. The player controls blocks akin to Tetris pieces, leading Gussun to the dungeon exit before it submerges completely.

This run starts from stage 21, the latest possible stage that the game allows one to start on.

Publisher's note: There is a glitch in the sound between stage 30 and 32 inclusive which is a result of the run itself, and not of the encoding.

The Lost Levels is a remake of the game released in Japan as Super Mario Bros 2. It introduces a number of new obstacles into the standard Super Mario Bros. formula, including poisonous mushrooms, wind, reverse warp zones, and of course many tricky jumps. It's difficult enough that Nintendo of America decided to completely re-theme a different game and release that as Super Mario Bros. 2 instead; The Lost Levels is the first time the Japanese sequel was released to the rest of the world.

This movie saves 4 frames over previous publication. All levels are played, including the secret world 9, and the extremely difficult A through D worlds.

This TAS uses Mario's brother Luigi. He jumps higher than Mario, but acts slower in many ways. However, the movie is in no way worse than the Mario version - some new creative solutions have been found.

This is a warpless version. For a warped one see [2210] FDS Super Mario Bros. 2 (JPN) "Luigi" by HappyLee, KFCMario in 08:13.77.

Super Mario Kart is the first in a popular series of games starring the Mario cast racing go-karts. This run aims to get record times in all tracks at 150cc difficulty.

Mushrooms are also used frequently due to their mysteriously friction-free propulsion powers. A high amount of wall-bouncing is required.

This run is over a minute and a half faster than the previous published run, due to new exploits of the definition of a lap.

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.

Mario's doctor heard about the "Magic Mushrooms" which make Mario grow to twice his normal size and let him break bricks. Fearing for Mario's health, he orders Mario to avoid those nasty powerups.

This run aims to complete as many exits as possible without collecting a powerup or visiting any Switch Palaces. Unable to fly, Mario is forced to confront most obstacles and overcome them in unique ways. Riding Yoshi is also banned. 86 out of the total 96 exits are completed.

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.

Award - SNES TAS of 2011
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is a vibrant, colorful and fun game that stars the popular Yoshi. From a technical standpoint, the game is very exceptional on the SNES due to its use of the SuperFX chip, which allows for many cool special effects that are otherwise impossible on the SNES.

This movie by Carl Sagan (no, not that Carl Sagan) is fast-paced, action-packed, and full of entertaining tricks and maneuvers. In other words, the very essence we tool-assisted speedrun makers enjoy. It also improves the previous run of this game by over 5 minutes. For more details, we recommend reading the author's comments; there's a lot more to this movie than meets the eye.

This run forgoes using the null egg glitch to finish the game within minutes and instead plays through the regular levels. To see the null egg glitch in action, check out the any% run by Masterjun. For more Yoshi's Island action, check out our 100% run.

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.

Award - SNES TAS of 2013Award - TAS of 2013
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is a vibrant, colorful and fun game that stars the popular Yoshi. From a technical standpoint, the game is very exceptional on the SNES due to its use of the SuperFX² coprocessor. The chip allows for many cool special effects that are otherwise impossible on the SNES.

This is a 100% completion of the game. It plays through all the levels and collects every item that contributes to end-of-level score: 5 flowers, 20 red coins, and 30 stars. By getting 100% completion in each stage, six extra stages are also unlocked. These are played at the end of the run, again with 100% scores.

The authors of the run have spent over three years working on this run, showing off plenty of egg juggling, precise shots, and other incredible antics. This run does not use certain glitches present in the other runs of the game (an any% run and a warp glitch run), but there should still be plenty to surprise you. Reading the authors' lengthy comments is recommended.

There are many hacks for Super Mario World, made with Lunar Magic, but few of them offer a whole new pleasurable game. The Second Reality Project is notable for being the first hack not made by the author of Lunar Magic that is still considered to be a decent game. The game spawned an Award-Winning series of hacks known for pushing Super Mario World to its limits, pulling in features from other games, and still adding on a few things of its own. This hack, The Second Reality Project Reloaded, is a remake of the original hack with all new graphics, custom music, and other great additions to help set the game apart.

This hack can be regarded as a true sequel to Super Mario World, picking up where it left off. Bowser has hatched a plan to rebuild his airships from Super Mario Bros. 3, and brings along his kids for support, hoping to use his newfound power and henchmen in the "Second Reality" to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom once and for all. Mario (and Luigi) must travel to the strange new Second Reality and face foes and puzzles they've never seen before. The game contains 8 classic worlds, as per the standard in previous games, as well as a special Bowser World, a Sonic World used as a short cut system similar to the Star World from Super Mario World, and one other...

In this run, bahamete abuses the game early on to quickly gain a feather prior to the game officially featuring it, leading to early entry to the Sonic World accessible from the various Koopa Castles. Whereas normal players on average need a good two hours to beat this game, thanks to plenty of flying, and a massive amount of glitching, bahamete beats this game in a mere 34:40.18 minutes.

For a very nice welcomed twist, this run does not feature the usual Bowser Copter fight you've come to expect in Super Mario World and its hacks. Rather, we get to see Mario blaze through one of the longest levels ever to be featured in a Mario game, and ends with a fight reminiscent of an old NES classic.

Super Metroid is a game that requires very little introduction. Samus Aran, a bounty hunter, returns to the planet of Zebes, in order to explore its depths, and defeat Mother Brain and the Space Pirates.

In this run, Saturn completes the game with the minimal amount of items, without skipping bosses or major glitches, which was considered "legit conditions" by the community. This movie had a notable flame war about its acceptability, see the discussion thread. Its submission also was revived and rerejected several times in a row.

In accordance with standard procedure, Samus discarded all of the items she collected on previous adventures before embarking on this one.

Super Metroid has a wide variety of time-saving glitches to exploit, many of which are explained on the Super Metroid Tricks page. Be sure to check it, as well as the author's comments, for more information on the improvements. (Note that this run is an improvement on the previous, even though the time seems slower, because this run was done on a more accurate emulator which unfortunately produces more lag.)

If you prefer to watch the fastest completion without getting all the items, check out Super Metroid in 38:41 by Taco & Kriole.


Every second encode link leads to a version where all door transitions, elevators and item jingles were cut out.

Super Metroid is a very well-known game in the world of TASing, and there have been many speedruns of this game published here at TASVideos over the years. This run demonstrates one of the hardest categories of speedrun possible for the game, Reverse Boss Order. In this category, Samus kills the four main bosses backwards from the game's intended order.

This category is especially difficult since Samus does not receive her extra suits until quite late in the run. As a result, most of the gameplay in Norfair is a desperate race against the clock as Samus's health decreases constantly in the heated areas. Needless to say, every single energy tank matters much more than it ever would in a normal run. Also, water areas in Maridia are quite difficult to navigate quickly without the Gravity Suit.

This run by Saturn improves on the previous movie by 1:24.26 due to a number of new tricks and strategies. See the submission notes for more details.

Super Metroid is a game that requires very little introduction. Samus Aran, a bounty hunter, returns to the planet of Zebes, in order to explore its depths, and defeat Mother Brain and the Space Pirates.

This movie sees the reinstatement of the in-game category, which was previously merged with the realtime run. Despite being slightly slower in terms of real time, this speedrun is both extremely optimised and breaks previous records once thought to be the limit of the game.

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%!

Although newcomers to TASVideos's player list, Taco and Kriole are both experienced TASers in regards to Super Metroid, this time having teamed up in a mission to perfect one of the most contested games in the site's history.

Using a new route and taking advantage of several techniques, never demonstrated before in other Super Metroid runs outside of waiting areas, they made short work of Mother Brain and her space pirates. The in-game completion time is 23 minutes 29 seconds, and 18% of the items have been collected. Thus, both the realtime and the in-game any% movies were obsoleted. (The in-game time category has since been improved to beat this run in in-game time, although not real time.)

Note: The actual rerecord count in this run is unknown. Please read the authors' submission notes and the discussion thread for more information.

Super R•Type (1991) is the 4th game of the classic R•Type series of arcade shooters, whose distinct gameplay and level design inspired numerous developers to create clones and various look-alikes. However, this particular installment isn't considered canon—it is an SNES-exclusive mash-up of the first two R•Type games.

In a nutshell, the series' plot is about the evil Bydo empire, which is a highly developed alien lifeform with hivemind mentality—akin to the Borg or the Zerg. The player pilots a spacecraft on a mission to destroy the Bydo. The craft's most prominent weapon is the so-called force—a spherical pod which is, in fact, a living piece of Bydo flesh and an indestructible mineral at the same time! Conveniently, the pod can be attached to the player's craft to shield it from bullets, or launched at enemies to inflict large amounts of damage.

All R•Type games are known to be very unforgiving; they require the player to learn strict paths that revolve memorizing safe paths through stages and tactically using the force pod to quickly dispatch of enemies and protect the ship. The author of this TAS, however, throws all the strictness and tacticalness out the window to play around and just ram most of the enemies with the pod. (Try this in realtime if you want to know true frustration.)
Other than that, the movie uses a password to access the second loop's difficulty level (eloquently called "PRO") without having to beat the game twice. It still doesn't get the good ending, though.

Super Turrican (1993) is the fifth game of the Turrican series, popular in the times of C64 and Amiga. It features Contra-like run'n'gun action crossbred with Metroid-esque exploration-driven level design and character abilities, while also being quite colorful and having remarkable soundtrack.

This is a 3.70 seconds improvement over the previous movie by the same author, achieved mostly through optimized movement and not taking damage to save time.


Despite having the same name as its NES counterpart, it's not the same game. Curiously, while this version was made without Manfred Trenz (the original Turrican series designer/developer), the NES one was produced by him alone.

Once upon a time, there was a prince named Gallagher. He was entrusted with a magical ring that granted him great powers. But he was too weak to control the power of the ring, and became possessed by it.

Here you can see a revision of this game by nitsuja, 4:35.31 minutes faster the previous run by mazzeneko. The strategy used was changed radically, using Raphael instead ofDonatello and using dash moves more often.

The damage for every move was mapped out carefully by monitoring the internal values of the RAM, to be able to choose the best attack for every situation. Luck was manipulated to make some enemies appear in more convenient positions.

- Aims for maximum score
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Puzzle
This Tetris Attack movie aims to get the highest score in the shortest amount of time possible. The result is obtained by executing multiple combos simultaneously, building them up to level 13. Combo bonuses are no longer awarded after getting 13 consecutively due to a bug in the game.

The level of play is far and above what any human could do in real-time on this game.

This is an improvement of 7.88 over the previous movie by the same author, zvsp. He does this primarily by starting each chain with one explosion. That way, he can explode the saved blocks during the chain, which, thanks to a glitch, gets him around 25000 points for every 13x chain. This allows him to beat the game in four chains instead of the previous five.

This movie was played on Panel De Pon, the Japanese version of Tetris Attack.

The only difference in gameplay between the two versions is how the scoring system works. Instead of doing many combos in a chain as in the US version movie, author zvsp uses a few very large combos to reach the goal about 30 seconds faster, finishing with an ingame time of 0'25.

Zvsp also improves the previous run by 1.31 seconds by selecting his character in the optimal way.

In a normal playthrough, this game is quite long. You must save four family members then progress to the final area to complete the game.

However, the authors use a glitch to skip directly to the final area, skipping 4/5ths of the game; in addition, several new glitches allow more of the final area to be skipped.

In The Firemen the player controls the fireman, Pete. The Metrotech building is a high-rise chemical plant, which today is hosting a Christmas party, and a fire! Gameplay follows Pete and his sidekick Danny, but there are also three other members of the unit that show up in cutscenes. Their plan is to collect the dangerous explosive MDL from the basement, and use it to blow up the water tank on the roof! The game is set in New York, but it never got a US release.

This run uses the invincibility after taking damage from small fires to get past larger fires. Water grenades can greatly speed boss fights, so the route takes detours to pick some up. Explosions from spraying certain windows is used, because it puts out nearby fires. Boss-battles are finished near the door to save time when the game auto-leaves the level.

Full completion of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Both this run and the short version use a wobbling trick in order to make Link walk a bit faster. The execution of this maneuver requires the usage of a controller that allows the player to press Up+Down simultaneously (such as, in this case, a modified Snes9x's controller). The traveling-through-walls trick that is seen in the short version is not used.

This run features an improvement of a little over 4 minutes.

Based loosely on the plot line of the movie by the same name, this game is about a man named Stanley Ippkiss, who finds a powerful mask known as The Mask. However evil has also become aware of this and kidnaps his girlfriend in order to obtain it.

One of the traits The Mask seems to give Stanley is extreme speed, so naturally, aside from a couple boss fights, the game play is extremely fast throughout the movie. The Mask also has a variety of special powers, most of which are seen in this run. These powers cost M points to use, which have to be managed carefully over the stage.

This run is an improvement over the previous run due to general optimizations and better use of glitches. Viewers who watched the previous run should especially see the massive improvement to the sewer stage.

This special attack charges up gradually and can be reset by being knocked to the ground.

Award - Funny TAS of 2012
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is one of the most diverse games of the series in terms of characters and play modes.

The authors take advantage of this and deliver an exceptional playaround movie. Bugs, easter eggs and impossible combos are shown off at a breathtaking pace. The movie features a mix of 1 and 2 player play for added variety.

This movie is longer than its predecessor by around 14 minutes, showing off more glitches. It also uses a cheat that enables pausing in order to show off even more glitches.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is one of the most popular games in the Mortal Kombat series. It was released to arcades in 1995 as an update to Mortal Kombat 3 and was ported to the SNES the following year. It introduced several new characters and two new gameplay modes.

In this run, SDR plays the hidden tournament mode and humiliates the game by showing off a number of humorous tricks and glitches.

This little-known Japanese wire-action platformer, with a very well-made rubber wire physics simulating engine, sports a schoolgirl setting out to rid the world of giant mutant fish.

The game is very easy to win, but very difficult to play (try it). This video demonstrates one of the fastest paths to the ending, including quite a few almost impossible maneuvers ― whether playing tool-assisted or not.

This video is a 7 seconds improvement to the previous version.

See the Umihara Kawase page for more information about this game, and the author's comments for more information about this movie.

Umihara Kawase (海腹川背) is about a schoolgirl with a bag of holding and a rubber fishing line setting out to rid the world of giant mutant fish.

This video plays the longest path of the game having only two bosses, aka. Bob's path, which you can find at the Field Map page.

The Umihara Kawase page has more information about this game.

The boss levels are quite long in this movie ― they can't really be sped up, but the author of the movie has done his best to make it worth watching.

No frogs were harmed in the making of this movie.

Starting with just $1000, the author reaches 10 million dollars in under one and a half minutes, proving once again that games defy reality.

This movie is 47.46 seconds faster than its predecessor by the same author. In particular, improvements come from skipping an intro scene, and an improved method of going from $1000 to $100000.

Wario has taken over the forest and it is up to Toad to defeat all of his monsters in huge tree trunks, caves and castles to save the day!

Wild Guns is a science-fiction/western game involving a lot of guns, explosions, and robots. One peculiar control feature is that the character's movement and aim are controlled simultaneously. The stages look like they are on a fixed timer, but every killed enemy decreases the game clock. By shooting enemy bullets out of the air, a meter builds up for the very powerful Vulcan gun.

This is nearly a 6 minute improvement over the previous movie due to the use of 2 players, more accuracy, and some nice tricks. The author has also embedded a few subliminal messages throughout the movie. Details can be found in the author's comments.

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.

Mario has returned to the Mushroom Kingdom from a trip, only to find that Bowser has started a construction campaign of building new hideouts. The construction projects are depriving the kingdom's plants of sunlight and thus, Mario decides to demolish the projects with his hammer. Along the way, he meets his old enemies from the original Wrecking Crew, including former rival Foreman Spike.

This Japan-only sequel to the original game takes a more competitive approach, giving two opponents their own sides to demolish as many panels as they can. Once one of the sides is completely filled up, the other player wins.

In this run, pirohiko takes advantage of a shortcut that humorously ends a level instantly if three lines of at least three panels of the same color overlap.

It's the X-Men, and they're out to stop Magneto and whomever else is bad.

This game stars five of the X-men: Cyclops, Wolverine, Gambit, Beast, and Psylocke. (Professor X is probably coaching them from a safe place, like he always does.) Each member has their own level to complete, but anyone can be chosen to play the remaining levels. The author primarily uses Beast for his power, though Psylocke is chosen in one stage. For more details, see the movie's comments and the discussion forum.

This is an improvement of nearly 50 seconds over the last version of this movie by Nibelung.

Yoshi's Safari is one of the few SNES titles that supports the Super Scope accessory. Bowser and his Koopalings have invaded Jewelry Land and stolen all of the kingdom's precious jewels. Armed with the Scope, Mario rides Yoshi to find Bowser and recover the jewels.

When Merlin was a young Sokoban man, he enjoyed life through minecart-surfing, skin-diving and burrow-crawling. Abusing glitchy spells and items, he wandered the world along with a frozen lady who came from the lake, in the Meanwhile, occasionally beating bad things like meanie trees, yestoday's launch and even a crouching dragon.

The author collects all heart pieces and other non-respawning items even without actually touching all of them. However, it is pretty sad that the prize T-shirt will never seem to be awarded with, although the "100% heart pieces collected" screen after the credits says so.

This game has many qualities that make it a good candidate for TASing. These include soft, pleasing graphics, music that's not painful to listen to, and of course, a very speedy main character. Unfortunately, some of the game's bosses have long invulnerability periods, meaning that Zero has to wait a bit between hits and cannot spam the bosses with 30 hits per second.

The game is not meant to be quite as straightforward as it would seem by watching this movie, as the author takes many shortcuts that require extremely precise jumping. This is an improvement of well over a minute and a half due to better optimization and new shortcuts and tricks.

This game involves slaying zombies and rescuing people, displayed from an overhead perspective. It's reminiscent of Fester's Quest but is much more fun.

Walker Boh controls both characters simultaneously, making this hard game even harder. Naturally, luck and glitches are abused in this run.

We recommend reading the author's comments; he wrote quite a detailed article of this movie.

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.
