A high speed racing game featuring rodents from another (nearby) planet. Although the author doesn't classify the velocity potential of the motorcycle as a programming error in the game, the speed at which he rips through the courses may make you wonder.
A password is used to skip to the final round at Super Hard difficulty with fully upgraded Engine and Shot parts. We do not usually accept movies using passwords. Please read the rules to see our reasons.
This movie has an Atlas Map encode of the Sunset City track, which shows the standard encode overlaid on a zoomed out map.

Chrono Trigger is one of the most dearly loved games from the SNES library. In it, you play as Crono and set off on a journey through time to save the world from the villainous Lavos.
The game can be ripped apart in a matter of minutes through advanced save corruption techniques, but in this movie the author forgoes this exploit in order to play through more of the game, and does so in barely more than half the time of the last run in the same category. Don't expect this run-through to follow a coherent narrative any time soon, though — it still skips quite a lot of content.

Donkey Kong's been kidnapped and old Cranky Kong insists that Diddy collect a bunch of coins that say "DK" on them. These goals are compatible enough that Diddy and Dixie decide to get a little bit sidetracked on their rescue plan.
This movie improves on its predecessor by 00:45.28 seconds, primarily by using a debug code to get 75 Kremkoins early, allowing for a faster route through the game. Reading the authors' comments is recommended.

EarthBound is a great RPG, designed by Shigesato Itoi in 1994-1995, and is also known by the name Mother 2.
It is best described as "random", in a good way. The game has a great emphasis on a humor, and indeed many things in the game are almost caricatured, from subplots to characters. It also has a versatile soundtrack.
In contrast to the in-bounds run of this game, this run skips most of the plot. There are several major collision detection bugs, including one showing that the Skip Sandwich is a fitting name for the item in ways the developers never intended. The author is able to move around the game's areas freely, completing the bare minimum number of tasks needed to keep the final battle from locking up.
illayaya improves the previous movie by a minute and 20 seconds, thanks to a new route and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Family Feud (1993) follows the premise of the American TV show of the same name. Two families are pitted against each other in a contest aimed at guessing the results of a public survey. In the first two rounds, the first family member to press a button and give a concise answer that happens to be on the survey earns points. After that, this family can continue guessing answers on the survey, with control switching to the other family on incorrect guesses. After two rounds, the family with fewer points is disqualified, and the last round allows two members of the remaining family to list several of the existing survey answers in a very short time period.
Heisanevilgenius's family, The As, ignores all that and goes with elaborate and utter nonsense instead… only to find the host accepting their answers as correct. The other family, The Halls, doesn't even get the chance to insert a word, proving the racial prejudice of the host. Watch the game and see for yourself.
If you liked how this movie abuses a text recognition system, also see the trouble that TAS tools bring to a drawing recognition system.

When watching sports, you're usually prepared for the unexpected. But what happens when it verges into the outright impossible?
In this superplay, watch in awe as a team is forced to score on its own goal ("OH NO! OWN GOAL!?"), the scoreboard mysteriously records extra goals that were never scored (and even rolls backwards at one point), and the very laws of physics themselves seem to get completely broken.

Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game in the original Rockman/Mega Man series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released for the WonderSwan.
This time around, Dr. Wily has his own creation turned against him, allowing the player to use Mega Man or a bad guy!
However, in this run, the players only use Mega Man and collect each and every CD in the game, which shouldn't be possible using only one character. Then again, many things happen in this movie that weren't intended to be possible.
This run is a collaboration between sparky, the current author of the other branches for this game, parrot14green, the author of the previous "100 CDs" run, and woabcfl, the author of the Rockman no Constancy runs. It improves the previous movie by 01:40.97. You can read the authors' comments for more details.
There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site; featuring completion of the game with Rockman and Forte as fast as possible, without worrying about CD collection.

Originally thought to be an April Fools joke, it turns out that Capcom really did hide a one-hit-kills weapon in Mega Man X. That platform in Armored Armadillo's stage always did seem a little strange. Unlike the later games, collecting the Hadoken is much more time consuming.
Hetfield managed to improve the previous run by 6.5 seconds, thanks to better lag reduction and overall better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

In the latest in silly ideas turned into inspirations for our ever-dedicated TASers, this movie takes one controller and wires it into three SNES emulators at once; the same input is used to play 3 games simultaneously with one controller. There are also animations constructed with spare controllers during this movie.
This movie beats the first three Mega Man X games with 100% completion each (an improvement on its predecessor, which beat only the first two games and without 100% completion).
If you like this movie, there are other movies that beat four games with one controller!
Note: There might be a visual anomaly during the battle with Serges in X 2. This is an emulator bug relating to the Cx4 chip used in the Mega Man X 2 cartridge.
Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the encode. Track 1 is the combined audio of all 3 games panned so that the left side is MMX1, center is MMX2, and right is MMX3. Track 2 contains MMX1's audio, track 3 contains MMX2's audio, and track 4 contains MMX3's audio.

Released in 1993, Pocky & Rocky is a top-down shooter gem themed on Japanese folklore. It features Pocky, a shrine maiden with no relation to the snack, and Rocky, the tanuki that Mario wishes he could be. As a sequel to KiKi KaiKai, the Nopino Goblins have gone insane again, this time under someone's spell.
In this run, t0ast makes full use of the game's unique 2-player mode in which Pocky and Rocky can interact with each other by sliding and pushing, leading to some speed tricks.

Another movie that is so fast you can hardly see what is going on. The main character can use his rocket dash to inflict a lot of damage on his opponents as well as bounce off walls and ceilings.
Dooty's movie is about 15 seconds faster than Cpadolf's run. Like in the previous movies, the game is played on the hardest difficulty, which is crazy hard.

Super Castlevania IV is the first game in the Castlevania series for the SNES. In it, Simon Belmont, equipped with the ability to whip in 8 different directions, sets out to vanquish Dracula yet another time.
In this run, the authors, arukAdo, Bablo, Cardboard, and scrimpeh obsolete a seven year old movie by over a minute and a half by a different subweapon choice, new tricks and better optimization. For more details, as always, please see the authors' notes.

Arguably one of the most well known and well developed SNES hacks in existence, Super Demo World puts Mario into a new realm that spans well beyond his original adventure.
Features of the hack include:
  • the ability to store unconventional items in the reserve box, such as a koopa, springboard, message box, or vine
  • 120 exits in total, including two secret worlds
  • creative and challenging level design, with some puzzle elements thrown in
  • "new" graphics (mostly backgrounds taken from other games, such as Donkey Kong Country 3 and Mega Man X)
In this run, PangaeaPanga improves upon the previous movie by more than five minutes using newly discovered glitches and a slower overworld route, which counterintuitively saves time.
To see a much shorter run completing the minimum number of stages, see this run.

Acknowledged as one of the best Mario games of all time, Super Mario World is a must see for fans of classic games. This run completes the game fully (all 96 exits) and makes use of almost every known glitch to make it as fast and exciting as possible.
This TAS by bahamete, Kaizoman666 & Masterjun is an improvement of 06:43.97 minutes over the previous movie. The improvement comes from new glitches and better optimization.
Published on 2/7/2013

This is the 13th published movie of Super Mario World that beats the game by clearing 11 of the 96 exits, the shortest route intended by the game developers. It improves upon the previous run by 00:02.75 seconds. Mario still dies in the process. Improvements include:
  • Better block duplication in Yoshi's Island 3
  • Better P-switch use in Yoshi's Island 4
  • Lag reduction in many levels

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is a vibrant, colorful and fun game that stars the popular Yoshi. From a technical standpoint, the game is very exceptional on the SNES due to its use of the SuperFX² coprocessor. The chip allows for many cool special effects that are otherwise impossible on the SNES.
This is a 100% completion of the game. It plays through all the levels and collects every item that contributes to end-of-level score: 5 flowers, 20 red coins, and 30 stars. By getting 100% completion in each stage, six extra stages are also unlocked. These are played at the end of the run, again with 100% scores.
The authors of the run have spent over three years working on this run, showing off plenty of egg juggling, precise shots, and other incredible antics. This run does not use certain glitches present in the other runs of the game (an any% run and a warp glitch run), but there should still be plenty to surprise you. Reading the authors' lengthy comments is recommended.

Note: The many graphical issues are a result of inaccurate emulation.

Super Metroid is a platform game and a follow-up to Metroid II. Like the previous games in the series, it is not divided into separate levels; the planet Zebes is an open world which Samus traverses back and forth. This world is divided into rooms separated with doors which must be shot to be opened. Shooting is also used to open up secret passages, some of which contain nifty bonuses, but finding most of them is required to proceed in the game.
This run not only beats the previous any% but also obsoletes the previous reverse boss order TAS due to similar routes. This is an improvement of 1:40.95 over the predecessor movie. As well as an improvement over the reverse boss order TAS by 10:40.51.
Sniq makes short work of Mother Brain and her space pirates, largely due to a major route change. Please read the author's submission notes for more information.

In accordance with standard procedure, Samus discarded all of the items she collected on previous adventures before embarking on this one.
Super Metroid has a wide variety of time-saving glitches to exploit, many of which are explained on the Super Metroid Tricks page. Be sure to check it, as well as the author's comments, for more information on the improvements. This is an improvement of 6:28.70 over the predecessor movie.

The Addams Family is a game from Ocean Software released in 1992 for the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. It also has a simplified NES port under the name Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt. In this game, it's implied that family members have been captured and are being held hostage by enemies, it's up to Gomez to save them all.
The three authors defeat all the bosses, collecting all health upgrades and saving every family member in record time, which makes for a very creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky run.

This run has commentary provided by the authors. They are embedded in the torrents and in the YouTube video.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is the third game of its series. It began development in 1988 as a NES title but was ultimately moved to the SNES, being released in Japan on 21 November 1991, exactly 1 year after the console. It set new standards for the system and was among the first games to use 1MB of memory. The game is widely regarded as one of the best video games, both of its era and of all time. A Link to the Past spawned two official manga, a Satellaview spinoff, a GBA port, a 3DS remake, a popular randomizer, and rereleases on the SNES Classic and Wii Virtual Console. Nearly 30 years later, it remains one of the most popular speedrun games.

Based loosely on the plot of the movie of the same name, this game is about a man named Stanley Ipkiss, who finds a powerful mask known as The Mask. However, the evil Dorian Tyrell has also become aware of this and kidnaps his girlfriend in order to obtain it.
One of the traits The Mask seems to give Stanley is extreme speed, so naturally, aside from a couple of boss fights, the gameplay is extremely fast throughout the movie. The Mask also has a variety of special powers, most of which are seen in this run. These powers cost M points to use, which have to be managed carefully over the stage.
BrunoVisnadi improves the previous run by 18.62 seconds, thanks to new glitches and better optimisation. Read the author's comments for more information on the new glitches.

Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose! is a video game for the Super NES console that is based on the animated TV series Tiny Toon Adventures. It was developed and published by Konami, released in 1992 in Japan and in 1993 in Europe and North America.
This game features Buster Bunny in a side-scrolling adventure. Buster's objectives vary from level to level, ranging from feeding Dizzy Devil so he stops destroying the school kitchen to defeating "Duck Vader".
EZGames69 improves his previous TAS by 41.86 seconds, thanks to an increased usage of the screen wrap glitch. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is one of the most diverse games of the series in terms of characters and play modes.
The authors take advantage of this and deliver an exceptional playaround movie. Bugs, easter eggs and impossible combos are shown off at a breathtaking pace. The movie features a mix of 1 and 2 player play for added variety.
This movie is longer than its predecessor by around 14 minutes, showing off more glitches. It also uses a cheat that enables pausing in order to show off even more glitches.

Umihara Kawase (海腹川背) is about a schoolgirl with a bag of holding and a rubber fishing line setting out to rid the world of giant mutant fish.
This video plays the fastest path of the game having only two bosses, which you can find at the Field Map page.
The Umihara Kawase page has more information about this game.
The boss levels are quite long in this movie ― they can't really be sped up, but the authors of the movie have done their best to make them worth watching.
Thanks to a different route and a lot of optimization, this run obsoletes one of the oldest previously unobsoleted runs of the site by about 01:29.04 minutes.
