[TAS] SNES Mega Man X by nrg_zam in 29:08.45
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3151M.html. TAS originally published on 2016-06-07.
Since moving to the SNES 16-bit land, Mega Man has taken the secret identity X, but everyone knows it's still him because he's the only blue robot who shoots three pellets at a time at other robots and steals their weapons.
Thanks to a newly discovered trick (namely turnaround kicks) along with further optimisations, nrg_zam cuts off 4.46 seconds over the previously published TAS (http://tasvideos.org/2822M.html). For more details on turnaround kicks, read the author's comments (http://tasvideos.org/5128S.html).
For extra curiosity, there is a page "Mega Man X Tricks (http://tasvideos.org/GameResources/SN...)" that explains some of the tricks that are and/or can be used in the X series games.
