These are various stategies discovered for the opponent Don Flamenco 1. While some of these strats maybe doable in real time, these demo movies are Tool-assisted and demonstrate the strat in a frame perfect manner. These times present the fastest possible time that can be obtained with these particular strats.

TAS Strat No CS

This is an extremely random strat that achieves a 58.00 without using the clock stopping glitch. It involves numerous random (1/16) stars, 2 rare energy refills, random early counters against his punches, and the fastest timing variations of his punches.

TAS Strat CS

Console Strat - No Random Stars or Refills


Console Strat - One Random Refill


Console Strat - One Random Star + Random Refill


Theoretical Console Strat - Two Random Stars + Random Refill


Don 2 is notoriously the most random opponent in the game. He has random timing between his patterns, random chance of countering his punches faster, and of course, really random stars.
Energy Refills
Don gets back up with any of 3 possible energy refills for any phase except phase 3 of round 1 if Mac has not been damaged. In a speedrun strat, Don can get back up with 80, 72, or 64 health for phase 2, and 80, 72, or 40 in phase 3 if he's been damaged. This is why the select trick is used in TAS strategies.
The odds of getting the 80 refill are 1/2 on each phase, and happen when the RNG ends in a 0, 3, 5, 6, 8, B, D, or E.
The odds of getting a 72 refill are 3/8 on each phase, and happen when the RNG ends in a 1, 4, 7, 9, C, or F.
The odds of getting the lowest refill (64 or 40) are 1/8 and happen when the RNG ends on a 2 or A.
