Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the Sega Saturn is a port of the popular PSX game of the same name. This version features the console-exclusive character Maria, who easily blazes through the castle, proving that she's not just another damsel in distress. EZGames69 uses a combination of magic powers, kicks, glitches and luck manipulation to free the world, yet again, from Dracula's minions.
EZGames69 improves his previous movie by 62 frames if emulation differences are not accounted for, thanks to better luck manipulation on the Griffin fight and better optimisation.
For more glitching and monster killing, we also have Alucard's and Richter's movies, both done on the PlayStation version.

In this run, EZGames69 saved 00:18.47 seconds over his previous record via better routing and optimization.

Magic Knight Rayearth is a game developed by Sega AM7 R&D Division and published by Working Designs (whilst upping the difficulty a notch and botching the translation in the process) in North America in November 1998, making it the final Sega Saturn game released in North America.
Mitjitsu improves the previous TAS by a tremendous 13 minutes and 58.1 seconds, mainly thanks to exploiting the infinite magic trick, allowing the game's most powerful spell to be used infinitely even when not meeting the required mana costs.

Myst is the epic puzzle game whose puzzles will take you hours to solve. Unless, of course, you know the answer. Although you'll encounter many brainmelting puzzles when normally playing through Myst, all the game really requires you to do is flip the eight switches around the island, get the blank page and bring it to Atrus.
One of the hardest things about this is the fireplace code which must be obtained in order to get access to Atrus. However, this being a TAS, the code is known and is entered in the most entertaining fashion the author could think of.
This TAS plays through the Sega Saturn version of the game, flipping all the switches, getting the page, and entering the code in the fireplace in record time.

Puzzle & Action: Nido aru koto wa Sand-R (2度あることはサンドア~ル), known as Puzzle & Action: Treasure Hunt overseas, is an arcade game that was developed for the Sega Titan Video arcade machine and was later ported to the Sega Saturn. Two treasure hunters managed to find themselves a large treasure chest, but a band of thieves suddenly steal it from them and split it amongst themselves. The treasure hunters must now travel the world to find these thieves and get their treasure back by completing a series of minigames, some of which appear to be highly anachronistic to say the least.
Darkman425 decides to play the game using two players and uses copious amounts of RNG manipulation in order to beat a number of minigames in record time and the whole game as fast as possible. For more details, you can read the author's notes.

This TAS runs through the Master Game mode of Bomberman on the Sega Saturn. While the basic gameplay is very similar to any game in the Bomberman series (especially the Super Bomberman SNES runs found at TASVideos), there are some key differences in this run. Rather than having multiple themed worlds with a boss at each, there is one temple with 20 floors and a boss after every four floors. More importantly, though, many important powerups are lost after each floor in the Master Game mode. This means the player needs more creative routes for laying bombs to get the fastest time.
This run by th2o and VicoV runs through the whole game in just over 10 minutes without taking any damage.

Shinobi Legions (新忍伝 (Shin Shinobi Den) in Japan) is a side-scrolling action game, similar to Shinobi III. Sho's primary weapons are a sword and a finite number of shurikens, both of which are activated with separate buttons. Sho can learn nearly a dozen sword abilities (spinning slash, downward slash, sword shielding, etc.) by collecting powerups scattered throughout the stages. There are also the "Fire Dragon" powerups that act as single use ninja magic attacks that damage all enemies on-screen, which is the only ninja magic available to Sho.
