This is an improvement to the current publication. I went left to get into position for the death star instead of right and saved 18 frames. I feel like there might be one or two more lurking.
If you work off of this file and manage to improve it please credit both myself and jlun2 thanks.

Decided to go through and check out old submissions and came across this one. Looked like a Char-approved jankfest. Wanted to optimize it a little if I could. Since rules and stuff have changed since 17.5 years ago, I'll try to get this published at some point (after talking to the original author)

Shuffled around some transition screen inputs and saved 6 frames. I thought it would have saved more but I feel like there's framerule shenanigans involved since a simple delete and shift caused desyncs in weird spots. It definitely changed the bull fight pattern which I had to burn a couple frames back to get a faster pattern.

Managed some better RNG in levels 3 and 4. Levels 1 and 2 were done by MarioAtWork (from his published run) and I couldn't find an improvement there. I think my 5 is suboptimal as well.
The RNG seems to advance based on how many times/frames you hit/hold a button. They also appear to have different effects. Like adding an A press is not the same as adding a right press which is not the same as adding both. I don't think B or Select do anything but I'm not 100%. I couldn't make heads or tails of exactly how it works, so I'm uploading this for MarioAtWork and others to improve upon in hopes that the actual functionality is figured out to be able to manip stuff exactly how we want.

This saves 297 frames over the previously published run by taking a faster path through the beams in stage 2 (making it so we never let go of right until the final input) as well as ending input sooner since Skeletor handily walks into you once you're in position.

We manipulate the AI in the beginning to be able to get into the "punch rhythm" on frame 30 instead of 31. At this point, every 15 frames will throw a punch that can hit the opponent.
It is possible to get a 2 point punch on frame 29 but I was not able to find a follow up to that that actually worked to get into the flow.

This contains the room location addresses for all the relevant items as well as the bat. In ram search you can see that the next two bytes are X/Y coordinates in the given room. For example 4B shows what room the bat is in, and 4C/4D are its X/Y in that room.
Room numbers are only partially sequential. If one of these is wrong I apologize. I don't track the dragons because we don't encounter any on this route. Also the bat can't open gates or deliver the chalice if we don't see it do it, even if it hits the right coordinates offscreen.
