Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter is the 4th Capcom fighting game to incorporate characters licensed from the Marvel Comics universe. It is in many ways a direct sequel to X-Men vs. Street Fighter, featuring many of the same characters and the same tag-team gameplay. It was well-received and paved the way for the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
In this playaround, the author shows many different characters, sometimes controlling both 1P and 2P, sometimes against the CPU. Infinite combos, glitches, and strange situations appear non-stop. A number of the glitches and techniques are detailed in the author's comments.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes is a 1998 Arcade fighting game developed by Capcom. It continues the lineage of Capcom fighting games featuring characters from Marvel comics, and is the game that paved the way for the hugely successful Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
Each team has two characters (which can be simultaneously controlled at certain times), plus a third summon assist character. This leads to quite a few things happening on the screen at once. There are quite a few glitches showcased; see the author's comments for a complete listing.

Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa's Revenge (Samurai Spirits: Amakusa's Descent (サムライスピリッツ天草降臨) in Japan) is the fourth installment of SNK's Samurai Shodown series of fighting games. Story-wise, it's the second and final chapter of a story between Samurai Shodown and Samurai Shodown II, with III being the first chapter.
In this playaround-style run, Dark Noob shows off more glitches, combos, and character variety than the preceding run in this category. This makes the movie nearly twice as long, but there should be plenty to enjoy. For some details, see the submission comments.

This is a playaround of what is considered the most popular hack of Street Fighter II': Champion Edition. The hack was found in bootlegged arcade cabinets throughout the world, surpassing the original in availability in some places.
This hack features several modifications, such as the ability to change characters mid-match, teleportation, midair special moves, and new projectile attacks. Capcom later incorporated some of these new moves into Street Fighter 2 Turbo.
In this run, the author shows off all the fighters and makes good use of some of the craziness added to the game. He also shows off quite a few glitches that are quite amusing to see.

Note: As it is widely available in stand-alone form, no patch is available or necessary.

Street Fighter II: The World Warrior is the sequel to Street Fighter and the second game in Capcom's ever popular fighting game series Street Fighter. Boasting an expanded roster and a bigger selection of moves, this game codified many elements that define the fighting game genre and introduced the concept of combos by accident. It was hugely popular at the time of its release and received many updated re-releases, adding in more characters, stages, and gameplay mechanics such as super moves.
Dark Noob and SDR decide to break the game in half and showcase many glitches and AI tripups, the results looking more like something out of the Rainbow Edition. For a list and descriptions of all the glitches and moves used in this run, you can read the authors' notes.

Like its predecessor, the game was ported to the Neo-Geo CD, as well as the PlayStation and Sega Saturn. The game made a few changes to gameplay such as new techniques, various changes of some teams, with a few of them introducing new characters.
Dark Noob shows off a plethora of glitches and infinite combos in this playaround, which are explained in more detail in the author's submission comments.
Note: Partway through the encode (after winning the first match against the CPU), the sound effects when selecting the characters/teams is higher pitched.
Flashing lights warning: There are instances of pretty heavy flashing when some combos are performed and when an opponent is KO'd, which may cause epileptic seizures in some cases.

Brain Age (also known as Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training) is a puzzle game designed on the premise of exercising your brain. In this run, for example, the idea is to solve a series of simple mathematical puzzles.
And yet, the answers given... are not exactly what you'd expect.
The same author of the previous run brings you a set of 51 new ... answers, with extra time taken to provide you, the viewer, with the greatest possible attention to detail. Additionally, the increased detail provides a higher level of difficulty, to prevent the number recognition from checking the answer before the image is complete.

Super Scribblenauts is the sequel to Scribblenauts, a puzzle game for the DS consisting of spawning any object from a database of thousands of possibilities (from "chair" to "God") to solve given situations. It is fundamentally the same game with two major novelties: the possibility to add adjectives (a color, a size, a state, etc.) to the objects we want to summon and the possibility to use the D-Pad to control Maxwell, the protagonist of both games, in addition to the touch screen, the only possible input method in the first installment.
This TAS completes the 10 main worlds of Super Scribblenauts. Speed is not the main goal; instead, the levels are completed in funny or unusual ways.

Mortal Kombat II was the first game of the Mortal Kombat series to feature a playable character-changing fighter (the sorcerer Shang Tsung). This run is played on the Game Boy port.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is a classic Game Boy Zelda adventure. Link must travel across the dream world of Koholint Island, collecting the 8 Instruments to wake the Wind Fish and go home after a terrible shipwreck.
bobmario511 (the author), however, realized that "Hey, I'm in a dream. That means I can do anything I want!" With that in mind, he embarks on a journey as the legendary hero THIEF to live out his wildest fantasies. Unfortunately, he would soon find out that this dream would end up being the worst nightmare of his life, traveling through a chaotic world devoid of any logic, meaning, or consistent appearance. Summoning the power of all of the allies he can get, our hero, BowWow, Marin, a ghost, and a flying rooster travel together to make sense of the nonsensical hell of Link's own imagination, collecting what he believes to be the 8 Instruments and Secret Seashells on their way.

Tekken Advance appears to be a good handheld port of the original arcade and PSX series, maintaining the Tekken spirit and physics despite the omission of some moves and characters.
AKheon plays around with another fighting game and, as always, succeeds in creating something impressive. This movie plays the game's unique Tag Battle mode, which allows the player to use 3 characters for each fight and switch between them at any time.

The current Pokémon: Yellow Version speed record uses heavy glitches that allow the player to catalog every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? Yes! In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program which greatly expands the game and shows off cool stuff from elsewhere too. For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments.
This movie improves upon the predecessor by using a payload which builds upon the environment in the game highlighting new areas, new Pokémon, and shows off a lot more that can be done with arbitrary code execution than displaying the digits of Pi and some minor animation. For more runs that involve arbitrary code execution, see our published list of movies which execute arbitrary code as well as discussion in our forum.

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.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy is a ROM hack of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for the Sega Genesis that adds in every character and stage that was in the first three Mortal Kombat games. It also adds in characters, combos, sounds, and special moves that were in the original arcade versions but not in the console versions, along with some special romhack original goodies. However, care was not taken into balancing the game when adding all the characters. Some of them may have very distinct and noticeable advantages over many others.
For this demonstration, Lars_Hendrick chooses to play 2 player-controlled characters against 1 CPU-controlled character, using Chameleon and Woman Chameleon, and lets loose with all the wacky and game-shattering combos and specials the romhack has to offer. The result is something that has to be seen to be believed.

In this run, adelikat picks up maximum speed upgrades and has fun with perfect reflexes, much like the previous movie. That is certainly something nice to do, because the game scrolls automatically and the player cannot affect the speed. However, the point of this movie is not just to beat this game as fast as possible, but rather to do all kinds of unpredictable and awe-inspiring things rarely seen in any TAS — without losing time. See for yourself.
This is probably one of the best illustrations on how to create art out of a simplistic and otherwise uninteresting game to watch.
What is also different about this movie is an extra warp which significantly shortens the game, and the use of a new tool (input macro) as described in the submission text. Bots are occasionally used to generate pseudorandom input while still avoiding death.
Also be sure to check out this movie being played back on an actual NES.

This movie doesn't aim to run up the score. Instead, it plays an entertaining game of American football by keeping the score close for drama and by utilizing a variety of wild plays with interceptions, fumbles, impossibly long passes, etc. Thus, the movie manipulates luck often.

To the average player, Tetris is a fast-paced action/puzzle blend where reflexes become a huge factor as pieces pile up and speed increases dramatically. For one with perfect reflexes, however, it's no longer a challenge of 'where does the next piece go to make lines / avoid piling up?' so much as 'where can I put the next piece to make things look the most interesting?'.
This run exemplifies that philosophy, exploiting the ability to manipulate the next piece that appears to the fullest in the service of creating a pattern which would be nigh impossible to duplicate in real world conditions.
If you thought that TASing was only about speed, look no further than this example to prove otherwise.

Sled Storm is a snowmobile racing video game published and developed by Electronic Arts. It gained critical acclaim due to its original concept of being one of the first snowmobile racing titles. It features snowmobiles (referred to as sleds), stunts and fourteen snow-covered courses consisting of slippery slopes, inclement weather and treacherous cliffs. Six racers were selectable from the outset and two more were unlockable, each of which had different snowmobile handling attributes. Extra points can be scored by doing tricks, but not all characters can perform every trick.

Tekken Force, a paramilitary organization protecting the Mishima karate fighters, is nearly obliterated by the mighty Ogre. Heihachi Mishima's only hope is his grandson Jin Kazama, who lives with his mother Jun, unaware of his legacy. When the Ogre attacks his home and presumably kills his mother, Jin seeks out his grandfather and learns the martial arts of the family. On his nineteenth birthday, Heihachi announces the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3, hoping that Jin will use the opportunity take out the meddlesome Ogre.
Tekken 3, like its predecessors, is a versus fighting game. New features include prominently featured side-stepping, allowing characters to retreat into the background and back during fights, more combo throws, fifteen more characters, and reduced jumping capabilities to allow for more realistic combat. Also included are two minigames: Tekken Force, a beat-em-up stage that unlocks a new character, and Tekken Ball, a beach volleyball variant where characters are hurt by the ball.
This run features Mokujin, who first appears in this game and later appears in all but Tekken 4, where he is temporarily replaced by another character named Combot. Unlike Mokujin, Combot can only mimic a different character's moveset for every match instead of every round. Mokujin is meant truly to test how well you know who you are, how well you can play as said character, whether you can play the matchups you are given, and whether you can keep the opponent from guessing which character you are.

Note: The credits are missing due to an emulator glitch.

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.

Killer Instinct is a classic fighting game ported to the SNES from an arcade machine. It features an advanced combo system, rich pre-rendered graphics and nicely arranged music. However, the latter two were somewhat toned down in this version compared to the original.
In this movie, Spinal takes down his enemies by slicing them up, hitting them with their own abilities, and (gasp!) making them dance to music!

Here on TASVideos we have a rich history of movies of the games in the Mortal Kombat series, demonstrating the unique combos and glitches possible in each version. This video of MK3 for the SNES is no exception, as the author Dark Noob swaps between all the different characters to show off the wide variety of techniques, secrets, and humorous bugs that are possible.
Though he is technically the villain, you have to admire Shao Kahn's dedication to keeping up with the action in his role as announcer as the fights get more and more bizarre. At times even he seems confused as to what is going on.

Like all of the Mortal Kombat games, MKII is about warriors fighting in a tournament for inspecific power and fame. Shang Tsung is chosen for his ability to transform into other characters.
This movie aims to demonstrate as many quirks and fatalities of the game as possible. Examples include two Shang Tsungs with a Raiden child, a headless Reptile eating Kitana's head and a bloody clone of Jax. The AI is also humiliated.
The author's comments page is a definitely recommended reading for this movie.
Note: The movie contains semi-realistic violence to be expected with the Mortal Kombat series.

Rampart is a tower defense video game from 1990, released on many plaforms including the SNES. Along with the 2/3 player battle modes, the SNES game also contained a more expansive single player campaign with just under 50 levels. The game follows a 3-phase system: battle → repair → place cannons → battle. Failing to build a wall around a castle results in losing a life, where destroying all enemy ships completes the level.
In this TAS, Natetheman223 aims to cover as much land as possible, while having fun by making some cool designs, and pretty much making a fool out of the enemy ships.

In Riddick Bowe Boxing, localized as Chavez in Latin America, you can face off against a slew of imaginary fighters as well as Riddick Bowe himself. The game features both a career mode, where you rise through the ranks until you battle Bowe, and an exhibition mode where you can choose any two boxers to face off.
In this playaround, laranja chooses exhibition mode and picks the worst boxer to battle against Bowe. Normally, it would be nearly impossible for him to win. Using tool-assisted precision, not only does he beat Bowe, but he does it while landing every hit and taking no damage. In the process, he toys around with the champion until the match is over.

Super Diagonal Mario 2: The Ultimate Meme Machine is a ROM hack of Super Mario World that sets out to do what it says in the subtitle, be the "Ultimate Meme Machine". It is an ambitious joke hack that is filled to the brim with in-jokes, memes, and internet culture references that were popular throughout the 2010s. It also includes music that was popular during that era and some pretty questionable gameplay mechanics. Oh, and Mario is tilted at a 45 degree angle.
IgorOliveira66, not wanting to pass up the opportunity, decides to break this romhack apart into even smaller pieces than it was originally produced in. In fact, some of the glitches performed here aren't even possible in the original Super Mario World. However, due to how the romhack is designed, it can be hard to distinguish between what is a glitch and what is a deliberate design choice. But for more eagle-eyed viewers, this may not be a problem.
