Ever wonder if Mario was actually a ninja wearing blue overalls? Now you know.
This run completes the game after collecting 1 star. It was originally intended that the player collect a minimum of 70 to finish, but a few bugs allow Mario to pass through doors and barriers that require a minimum number of stars to open. Creating the fastest Super Mario 64 run was previously believed to require 16 stars, but this run manages to glitch through the Dire Dire Docks door without using MIPS the rabbit.
Mario has a very wide range of skills for mobility and some of the physics of this game are easily abused by an experienced player.
Like many other runs on this site, the goal of pure speed has resulted in the complete breaking of some games. Very little of the game's normal play remains. If you'd like to see more of what Super Mario 64 offers, see the 120 stars run.
