Low G Man is a platformer with many interesting boss fights. The primary way to deal damage is with a whip like weapon, but you also have a freeze gun that adds lot of possibilities for optimization. Most of the improvement here comes from better boss fights, but there is also a clip that saves several seconds (already used in RTA runs.)
For reasons I have yet to determine, the bot is unable to deal with this game, so this run is not console verified. It seems to require extra input polls to sync, but no extra polls are happening. This issue is not unique to this game, Bad Dudes and Paperboy also encounter it, but it remains something of a mystery.

Samsara: Claiming for judging.
Samsara: Dropping.

feos: Claiming for judging.
feos: Some frames are lost to slightly different behavior of some bosses and enemies, but given the overall improvement on other bosses and levels, I'm not ready to demand disassembling the RNG just to prove it's FCEUX's fault (also movement in this game looks rather clunky).
Adding cyclecount to the movie to silence the warning in bizhawk 2.8, and accepting over [2043]NES Low G Man: The Low Gravity Man by goofydylan8 in 10:30.93.
fsvgm777: Processing. despoa is handling the encodes for this one.
