The main quest completion time has been shortened to nearly one sixth of what it initially was, thanks to the discovery of a glitch that allows Juste to sink into walls.
This is a 02:51.65 minute improvement over the previous movie.
The author has created an elaborate encode that shows the player's position on the map, contents of the game's memory, and hacks the camera to follow the character's movement more. It is available on YouTube, NicoVideo, and Bilibili.
However, if you still think there is not enough zipping through walls, be sure to watch the second quest completed in less than half a minute!
This is a really, really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played with Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten once. Most of the game is glitched through by being stuck in different walls, so it's hard to explain what happened in this run; see it for yourself.
This is a 1 frame improvement over the previous run by gstick.
If you like this run but have a craving for more Maxim action, be sure to check out the Maxim warpless run.

This is a really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played as Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten. Unlike in the glitch-warped run, the protagonist doesn't directly fight Dracula and instead defeats every boss, reaching Dracula the intended way. However, this doesn't stop Maxim from making short work of every boss and sinking into walls wherever he wants.
This TAS by gstick improves the prior run by 01:43.07 thanks to further optimizations and an entirely new route.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is the second Castlevania game to appear on the Game Boy Advance. Along with the main story mode is Boss Rush mode, which is unlocked after completing the story mode once. In Boss Rush mode, you can face a gauntlet of bosses from the story that you have to defeat as fast as you can. There are three difficulties to Boss Rush mode, each of which have their own different set of bosses.
In this run, Tarion plays Boss Rush mode on the Hard difficulty, which includes every major boss fight from the story. Various glitches and copious amounts of RNG manipulation are performed to put down each boss as fast as possible.
There is also a run where Simon Belmont is used instead of Juste.
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is the second Castlevania game to appear on the Game Boy Advance. Juste Belmont and his friend Maxim are drawn to the newly resurrected Dracula's Castle in order to save their mutual friend Lydie, although it remains to be seen who will be saving whom.
This run plays through the Boss Rush mode using Simon Belmont, the original hero of Castlevania. Simon is pretty slow, but he still powers through the bosses with massive amounts of cross abuse.
In Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, the Belmont clan must again rise to the challenge: Dracula's castle is in disarray and is in serious need of an interior decorator! In this movie, Juste Belmont zips through walls, under floors, and over zombies with the very important task of rearranging furniture. (He also defeats Dracula and rescues his best friends along the way, but that's not very important.)
This movie is a 06:34.27 improvement over its predecessor, thanks to several new improvements and optimizations.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
