Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure is a skateboarding game released in 2003, using the same engine as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4. The game allows you to skate as characters from Toy Story, Tarzan, and The Lion King. The gameplay is similar to that of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, but containing simplified controls and limited tricks. There are three main modes of the game, Adventure Mode, Free Skate, and Versus. Unlike regular Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, there is no actual story mode to complete. Instead, there are goals scattered across every level.
In this run, Fog unlocks every level and every skater as fast as possible.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is an action role playing game developed by The Game Designers Studio and published by Square Enix in 2003 for the Nintendo GameCube. This was the first Final Fantasy game to include real-time fighting, which has since become a staple of Final Fantasy games.
You control a caravan and its members, and travel in a hostile world with dungeons and monsters. You collect drops of Myrrh to protect your village, and go on a quest to find and destroy the source of the miasma that corrupts the world.
Wobmiar further improves on their previous movie's record by by opting not to craft the Master's weapon early on and instead go for the Valiant Weapon, which saves some item farming time and allows the first trip to Marr's Pass to be completely skipped.

Note that this movie was done on a newer version of Dolphin (than the previous run) that has longer and more accurate load times. As a result, this movie's time appears to be slower than the previous run, but is actually faster when load times are discounted.

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry and his friends unravel the mystery behind the Heir of Slytherin (yes, it's Lord Voldemort, duh) and his Chamber of Secrets. USTA2877 would make short work of that, but is frequently interrupted by senseless (unskippable) cutscenes and loading screens, which this game (series) is somewhat notorious for. Most of this run is relatively glitch-free, so lean back and enjoy a fast-forward through the second part of the Harry Potter series.

Note: The minor audio and animation glitches are caused by bugs in Dolphin's emulation and capture.

Ikaruga (2001) is a vertical shoot 'em up published and developed by Treasure as a spiritual successor to its earlier title, Radiant Silvergun (1998). It was first released on arcade machines, then eventually ported to Dreamcast, GameCube, XBLA, Android, and even Steam, thanks to the loyal following among the Western shoot 'em up fans. GameCube version was chosen for creation of this TAS as it provided both the most arcade-accurate port, and the most accurately emulated platform of those available at the time.
Ikaruga features a polarity mechanic wherein enemies can be black or white, shooting black or white bullets, respectively. Additionally, player ships themselves can switch between black and white: when white, ship absorbs white bullets and deals extra damage to black enemies, and vice versa. When enough bullets are absorbed, a powerful enemy-seeking attack can be unleashed. As such, typical gameplay consists of frequent polarity switching, chain-killing enemies, and absorbing bullets instead of dodging them; to capitalize on this, the author chooses to control both player ships in order to absorb as many bullets as possible, do more damage, and pick off escaping enemies without breaking a kill chain.
The goal of this TAS is to maximize the score. Ikaruga's scoring system mainly consists of color-based enemy chaining: killing three enemies of the same color in a row increases chain value, messing up the color sequence resets it. Absorbing bullets and lasers, speedkilling bosses, and having spare lives at the end are also significant score boosts—all of these are used in the TAS to the fullest extent. The final score is a massive 50,230,200, only attainable with two players.

Ikaruga has been extensively competed in both Western and Asian gaming communities, leading to publication of an official superplay DVD, as well as blessing us with many amazing feats of unassisted gameplay. If you've enjoyed this TAS and would like to see what some of the best human players have to offer, make sure to watch VTF-INO's unassisted doubleplay, in which the player attempts to achieve maximum score by controlling both ships in realtime; also check out RNA's flawless stage 5 boss fight done solo, and Sa Suisai's full-game unassisted playthrough on Normal difficulty, executing some inhumanly precise chains on the XBLA version of the game.

Luigi wins a mansion in a contest and his brother, Mario, goes missing there. It is your goal to search the haunted mansion to figure out where he is. Your weapons to protect you are a flashlight and the Poltergust 3000, a ghost vacuum. Capturing ghosts and collecting keys helps you progress in your quest to find Mario.
The author, solarplex, utilizes out-of-bounds glitches to skip 19 of the 23 Portrait Ghosts and all of the Boos (except King Boo), beating the whole game in around 10 minutes with TAS timing, or 8:28:52 with RTA timing.

This run plays the Hidden Mansion, a mode unlocked after beating the game once that increases the power of the Poltergust and allows skipping some cutscenes, to make the run more entertaining. We do not normally accept runs that start from dirty SRAM; see the rules for more details.

NFL Street 2 is the second game in the series by Electronic Arts. It features team rosters from the 2004 NFL season. As in the first game, players can accumulate style points during play, but this game adds wall moves as a new method to get the points.
"NFL Challenge" mode remains the primary mode of the game but has changed from the first game. Players have 150 days to prepare a team for a tournament against the other NFL teams, with the winner challenging the NFL Legends.
In this run, Lobsterzelda completes the "NFL Challenge" mode as quickly as possible, using the wall moves to rack up style points and manipulating the computer teams to choose plays that lead to their rapid defeat.

Pac-Man World 2 is a 3D platformer for the Nintendo Gamecube. Pac-Man has 2 unique movement options: butt-bouncing (ground pound) and rev-rolling (spindash). The goal is simple, just make it to the end of each stage, and kill each boss at the end of the world.
The TAS differs from RTA runs in that minute details in the level geometry are abused using the rev-roll. This allows many strategies to be shown off that aren't viable otherwise.
Note: Due to an emulator bug the intro and outro videos look jittery.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal. It was released in December, 2005 in North America for the Xbox, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, and the Nintendo GameCube. The Two Thrones marked the third and final chapter for The Sands of Time saga, until the release of prequel The Forgotten Sands.
The game combines exploration and combat. Both elements make use of the Prince's acrobatic capability and agility. Throughout much of the game, the player must attempt to traverse the palace by running across walls, ascending or descending chasms by jumping back and forth between walls, avoiding traps, climbing structures and jumping from platform to platform, making other types of well-timed leaps, solving puzzles and using discovered objects to progress.

In the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Super Mario 64, Mario and Peach are taking a much-deserved vacation from the so often troublesome Mushroom Kingdom. Only, they quickly find out that there is trouble amuck at their island destination. A culprit has coated the world with goop and paint. Even worse, according to the locals he just happens to look like Mario. Mistaken for the true offender, Mario's would-be vacation instead turns out to be another day on the job as he is convicted of the villain's crimes and is ordered to clean up the world with a water-spewing device that straps to his back, which just happens to add a whole new layer of depth to the usual platforming action.
Here, zelpikukirby & Goldfire use tools to show just how nimble the famed plumber can be. Focusing on revenge rather than reparation, they bring the perpetrator to justice after collecting only 43 shine sprites, leaving plenty of time for Mario and his friends to indulge in the rest and relaxation they originally set out to enjoy.

Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. fighting game series is rather different from your typical fighting game. Instead of wearing your opponent's health down to 0, you must knock him or her out of the battlefield. Damage counts upwards, with knockback from attacks that hit you becoming more severe as your damage increases. Fighting controls are also simplified, making it very easy for even your non-gaming friends to pick up and play.
Super Smash Bros. Melee offers fighters from the wealth of Nintendo characters like Mario, Bowser, different Pokémon, Link, and Kirby. They can either fight through the single-player modes like Classic, Adventure, and Event Mode, or they battle it out against other characters in a four-player frenzy.
Additional characters and stages are unlocked as hidden objectives are met, and coins rewarded for playing in all modes can be spent on a capsule toy machine. The toys in the machine represent games from Nintendo's entire video game history, and each can be viewed in 3D with a brief description.
In this TAS, numerics plays through Adventure Mode with Samus, abusing glitches to move through the stages at a high rate of speed while making the battles as entertaining as possible.
Note: There are encodes of higher resolution in the discussion thread.

Tony Hawk's Underground is a skateboarding-adventure video game published by Activision in 2003, the fifth entry in the Tony Hawk series.
Underground is built upon the skateboarding formula of previous Tony Hawk's games: the player explores levels and completes goals while performing tricks. The game features a new focus on customization; the player, instead of selecting a professional skater, creates a custom character.
Underground adds the ability for players to dismount their boards and explore on foot. The plot follows the player character and his or her friend Eric Sparrow as the two become well-known professionals and grow apart.
In this run, The Packle improves upon the previous publication by over three and a half minutes thanks to a new glitch involving custom tricks which eliminates most of the RNG this game has to offer.

Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is the sixth installment in Neversoft's Tony Hawk's series and is the sequel to Underground. The gameplay in Underground 2 is similar to that of previous Tony Hawk games: the player skates around in a 3D environment modeled after various cities and attempts to complete various goals. Most goals involve skating on or over various objects or performing combos. Scores are calculated by adding the sum of the point value of each trick strung together in a combo and then multiplying by the number of tricks in the combo.
In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air to complete this game as fast as possible on the easiest difficulty using multiple glitches along the way. For more information on the tricks and glitches used in this run, check out the submission text.

The YouTube encode removes the credits and its associated ending theme for copyright reasons.
