The second Castlevania title released on Nintendo DS after Dawn of Sorrow, this game is a direct sequel to Bloodlines on Sega Genesis. Dracula rises from the dead yet again (cue groan), and it's up to Jonathan Morris, helped out by Charlotte Aulin, a powerful mage student, to defeat him.
Beating Dracula into a pile of dust in under five minutes wasn't enough for our heroes, so this time they wreck his entire castle and surrounding areas before killing him. Every boss is slain, so you get to see more of that fast "showtime" action. Significant glitching is used; read the author's comments for more information.

Like many Castlevania games, Portrait of Ruin has extra alternate play modes available after completing the primary quest. In this case, you get to play as Richter Belmont and Maria Renard, using a dual character system very similar to the main quest.
Richter and Maria blaze a path of destruction through the castle, pacifying foes with a combination of crosses, doves and other wonderful things. Complex multiple-character motion is used to move as quickly as possible; see the author's comments for an in-depth explanation.

The classic Metal Slug series comes to DS with Metal Slug 7. Although there is only one player this time, this version is notable for allowing the player to keep two weapons and switch freely between them.
The author, mtvf1, completes this game without deaths in a mere 23 minutes and 11 seconds, using Marco.
There is also a version that uses Eri and Tarma. Deaths and continues are used in that version, which is also the only way to switch characters in this game.
You may also check out other Metal Slug runs such as Metal Slug, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5 and Metal Slug Advance.

New Super Mario Bros. was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. It features your typical side-scrolling plumber, but in this case he comes with enhanced abilities, like wall jumping and doing flips.
Most of the game can normally be skipped with warp cannons. Here, the authors avoid those cannons, allowing you to see much more plumbing action.

Here is the Famicom Disk System version of Zelda II (known as "The Legend of Zelda 2 - Link no Bouken" in Japan) beaten fast by Arc. It is 5:24 faster than the previous version by Boco.
The Japanese version was played because the USA version causes an error in Famtasia. The versions are generally the same, but there are some differences — most noticeably seen in the leveling systems and the load screens. We recommend reading the author's annotation of this movie.

Pokémon: Blue Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as evidenced in the run of the Yellow Version, but that is not used here in favor of activating a similar glitch through more conventional means - if systematic breaking of the game can be called conventional.
This is an improvement of 04:03.09 over the previous run in this category, which used a couple different glitches and is worth checking out as well.

The other installments of Castlevania on the GBA have extreme warping glitches, and this game is no exception. Using enemy platforms and selected soul abilities to disregard the boundaries of the game, pirate_sephiroth manages to cut off nearly half the time from the normal route. Moreover, the author proves glitch warping to be so effective that the usual teleporters are left completely ignored, and several parts of the castle have been skipped entirely.
You may notice some tiny slowdowns before getting a certain item or soul: those are done for the means of luck manipulation, which is very tough in this game. You may want to read the author's comments for more details.

Those who greatly dislike that Aria of Sorrow's main character isn't related to the Belmont clan whatsoever can safely relax, because the powerhouse known as Julius Belmont enters the stage in the relatively short run of this Castlevania installment.
Julius is only available to those who have completed the main quest, but unlike Soma Cruz, Belmont can't go through walls or use other fancy tricks like that. Being very upset about it, he hops around the castle madly, producing almost inhuman sounds with every jump.
The improvement of 61 seconds came from these new movement techniques and better boss fights.

In this game, the player controls Juste Belmont, one of the later descendants of the Belmont clan. The goal of the game, as usual for Castlevania games, is to defeat Dracula in his castle. Along the way, some bosses are beaten, and some abilities and items are obtained. Furthermore, to obtain the best ending, Juste is supposed to acquire all of Dracula's remains and Maxim's bracelet.
In this branch, the author forgoes the "wall-sinking" glitch (used in this movie) which would allow Juste to warp to far-away places. Thus, this movie shows off more of the game.
We also have movies featuring the unlockable character Maxim, with wall-sinking or without.

Mega Man Xtreme 2, like its predecessor game Mega Man Xtreme, pretty much copies content and bosses from the main line of Mega Man X games. However, Xtreme 2 gets ideas and designs from a much wider range of games, ranging all the way from Mega Man X to Mega Man X5. For instance, there is a Parts system allowing upgrades to your characters. However, there is also an original story (though it's still as silly as many Mega Man storylines), along with some new stage designs and bosses.
In this game, both X and Zero are playable. Zero is mostly used at the beginning and ending of the game, while X is used mostly in the middle of the game. Both characters get damage-boosting parts from the shop to defeat bosses incredibly quickly. For more information, see the detailed submission comments.

This run starts from a save file in order to unlock "Extreme Mode", which allows visiting all of the game's stages and battles in one run. Runs that start from SRAM are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.

Completing this game on the "Hero" difficulty or higher unlocks a New Game+ mode that lets the player take control of Harry Osborn in the Green Goblin suit, complete with the Glider and Goblin Bombs! This New Game+ mode features a new storyline where Harry must stop a "mysterious" adversary, who just happens to sound a lot like Willem Dafoe, in another Green Goblin suit.

Ecco is a very original and hellishly hard game. You control Ecco the Dolphin, navigating the waters, saving other trapped dolphins (which of course were left on their own here), finding key diamonds, schools of fish and pockets of air deep down in submarine caves.
The movie might look a little clumsy with the player hitting walls all the time, but there's no other way: Ecco has tremendous maximum speed, but no brakes whatsoever. The fastest way to slow down is simply running into something.

It retains the same basic features as in the previous Sonic games (speed, rings for protection, Special Stages with Chaos Emeralds) as well as the three different shield types introduced in Sonic 3 (Fire, Water and Electric). Players can select either of the two title characters for play - either Sonic, or the all-new Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles cannot jump as high as Sonic, but he can glide by holding the jump button while in the air. If you glide into a wall, Knuckles will also be able to climb it. He can also break through walls that Sonic can't. With these abilities, Knuckles can access different areas from Sonic, making for each level an entirely new experience.

Super Smash Bros. began a series of games that mixes characters from several Nintendo-made games into a unique fighting game. It relies not on wearing down the opponent's "life" but increasing damage until he or she can be literally knocked off the stage. Wildly popular, this game has inspired many lazy days of casual multiplayer gaming but also intense competitive tournaments that happen to this day.
We have seen several submissions for this game here but this is the first one to be published. The author shows off fancy fighting with Yoshi on the hardest difficulty. Rather than the usual goal of speed, this movie aims to be as entertaining as possible in the tradition of all fighting games here.
Another movie, which aims for fastest completion time instead, can be watched here. There are also several other submissions and publications that can be watched on an emulator.

This is a hack of Super Mario Bros. called Air, available here (website in Japanese).
Defining aspects of this game:
  • Very unforgiving. Intuition will not work. Mistakes are not allowed. Most paths are one-way.
  • In order to complete the game, the player is required to collect some mushrooms, only to lose them soon thereafter.
  • In order to complete the game, the player is required to abuse many of the glitches of the game (such as passing through walls in a multitude of different ways).
  • Savestates are practically required for completing the game.
  • You can jump any time you wish, even if you are in air. Genisto however avoids using this feature except when necessary.
  • This movie involves a death. As the game starts with 0 extra lifes, the player must gain one 1UP to afford that death.
  • In stage 3-2, Mario just sleepwalks through the stage. The player has no control there.
If you want to complete this game yourself, do not watch this movie!
This movie spoils some solutions.
Anyone can make as psychedelic looking hack as this one is, but it is not as mindless as it first seems. It has been designed by someone who has firm knowledge of the game's quirks, and you need to have the same level of knowledge in order to complete the game.
Gaining the 1UP is accomplished by collecting 100 coins. However, most of the coins are either hidden, or trapped so that they must be collected in a certain order. Some coins are traps in themselves, and must not be collected, because doing so the player would not be able to return to the right path.
The death, however, is not mandatory. As Bisqwit demonstrates, the game is also completable without death (and thus, without collecting those coins).
(Note: The shooting at Koopa in the demonstration has nothing to do with this point. It only shows that the hit counter overflowed.)
Bisqwit is unsure whether this manner of completion is what the creator of the hack had in mind. Considering that dying leads to the lowerside tunnel, it is possible that the death was intended to be mandatory.
Genisto has explained some aspects of this game, and of the movie, in his submission comments.
The following attributes apply to this movie:
  • Abuses programming errors. There is no other choice.
  • Uses warps. There is no other choice.
  • Does not play as fast as possible. Rather, Genisto introduces this hack in a good way.

Normally, standing under any falling object or just getting close to an enemy means instant death, but in this movie the player fearlessly dives through heaps of falling objects and walks past enemies without a scratch. It's quite pleasureable to watch if you have ever sat screaming at this game for getting stuck or killed repeatedly.
This playthrough uses a password to skip to level 19-1, which begins the hardest set of levels. The amoeba levels have long unavoidable waits, it is advised to fast-forward through these.

Simon is taking another shot at this castle, but feeling horrible for the destruction he caused last time, he is now trying to respect Dracula's property and leave the place untouched (even if his intention is to kill the count).
As a minimalist variation of a pacifist goal, this movie does not contain any destruction in the levels: candles and walls are left intact, items stay untouched, and no enemy is harmed — with the exception of the bosses, who are killed mercilessly with the help of the "critical hit" glitch.
With Simon sneaking by most enemies with no subweapons and only his leather whip, this ends up being quite a stealthy run.
