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.
NEVERDOORS follows the same general route as the previous movie, but improves times for every room, and saves a whopping ~20 seconds by incorporating a recently-discovered trick for defeating King Boo in one cycle instead of two. The submission notes contain much more detail about the myriad techniques that were used to create this TAS.

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.

Mega Man Network Transmission is a game in the Mega Man Battle Network series, developed by Arika and published by Capcom for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003. It combines the battle chip system of the Battle Network games with the classic Mega Man level designs to create a unique game in the franchise. Battle chips can be for attacking, defending, utility purposes, or a combination of these, and can be sourced from viruses (enemies) mid-stage, bought from shops, or acquired from defeating bosses. You have a finite amount of each chip, and using them costs MP, which recovers over time.
Pontus completes the game in record time.

Spider-Man is based on the 2002 movie of the same name, featuring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker.
The game is a beat-em-up that expands the plot of the film, featuring villains that didn't make it into the movie. The player navigates the game by web slinging, zipping, and crawling along walls, only stopping long enough to beat up baddies and collect upgrades.
Natetheman223 plays through the mini-game called "pinhead bowling", goofing around while also getting strikes in the process.

Spider-Man is based on the 2002 movie of the same name, featuring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker.
Completing this game on the "Hero" difficulty or higher unlocks a New Game+ mode that lets the player take control of Harry Osborn (voiced by Josh Keaton) 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.
This run is a 2 minute and 33 second improvement over the previous movie.
This run uses a special Green Goblin suit from the Alex Ross comics. This suit normally isn't available on the Gamecube version, however it can be rendered usable through use of an Action Replay code.

Star Fox Adventures is a game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo in 2002 for the GameCube. Originally intended to be a title that bears no relation to the Star Fox franchise named Dinosaur Planet, it stars Krystal, who receives a distress signal from Dinosaur Planet and decides to investigate the incident, as well as Fox McCloud, who gets called by General Pepper to repair Dinosaur Planet by putting the broken pieces back in place.
Lobsterzelda does so whilst avoiding a glitch that skips most of the game (called Void Travel) and instead relies on other pretty significant glitches, like OoB, and defeats the culprit in record time. Please read the author's comments for more details.
A video encode with voice commentary by the author can be found here.

Bomberman 64 (爆ボンバーマン Baku Bonbāman) is the first 3-D game within the Bomberman series. It also implements a different single-player mode by incorporating action-adventure and platforming stages, instead of arenas in which enemies or other elements must be destroyed.
This TAS is played on the Japanese version because of its shorter intro.
zvsp improves on the previous run by nearly 1 minute and 58 seconds thanks to many time saves found over the years. If you want to see more Bomberman goodness, we have plenty more Bomberman Movies. There is also a 100% run by zvsp.

To beat The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, players must normally visit four temples and rescue the giant at each one, so that they can later be called upon with the Oath to Order to stop the moon from destroying Termina. The authors of this TAS barely even play the game, instead beating it by supersliding to the observatory and then sliding off of a pot using a bomb.
In this heavily glitched run of Majora's Mask, the authors achieve total control of the game using the newly discovered Stale Reference Manipulation (SRM) technique, allowing them to unlock inputs on a third controller and then using it to input and execute code that jumps the game straight to its credits sequence. Setting up the SRM is quite a feat, and it, along with loads of other tricks used in this run, are explained in detail in the authors' submission notes. You can also watch a version with voice commentary by BruceShankle here.
The authors improve the previous movie by 48 frames. This run is performed on the Japanese 1.0 version of the game, which features faster text than the English version, in addition to having the fastest memory setup.

Commentary for this TAS has been provided in the subtitles for both the YouTube upload and the downloadable encode.

Doc Louis's Punch-Out!! is a standalone title released after the Wii remake of Punch-Out!! as a Platinum reward for Club Nintendo members in North America.

Awosomeandy improves on the previous movie's sparring match by incorporating a newly discovered Instant Knock-Out, saving 3.06 seconds. As with the other Punch-Out!! runs on this site, the author aims for in-game time first, then real time. The clock times achieved are listed below:

Donkey Kong Country Returns is a sidescrolling platforming game for the Wii released in 2010, and was the first mainline Donkey Kong game to be released in a long time. The plot follows the Island in which Donkey Kong lives on suddenly being swarmed by the Tiki Tak Tribe, who then hypnotizes the animals on the island to bring bananas to the volcano. Although the tribe was able to steal the Kong's banana hoard, for some reason Donkey Kong couldn't be hypnotized. After punching the Tiki creature out of his hut, Donkey Kong goes out to stop the Tiki Tribe and get back the banana hoard.
TheRandomMaster, SpeedyTheHedgehog & Jaiden all shake the Wii remote to roll their way to the top of the volcano and defeat the Tiki Tak Tribe in record time.

Natetheman223 saves both time periods in a timely manner.

Note: This publication features alternative encodes that remove fog from the game, as many of the out of bounds sections can contain rather abrasive colors.
