Found two very similiar time saving tricks while doing some runs.

1. By quitting out to the main menu and re-entering Adventure Mode after dealing the last blow to En Garde, you skip the dialogue and cutscenes between tutorial and 1-1, and for some reason, 1-1’s first enemy (The Cat) will have 0 hearts and be OHKO’d by any word.

2. By doing this same quitting and re-entering trick before and after every boss fight, you skip the several second cutscene introducing the boss, as well as any cutscenes afterwards and the cutscene of receiving the new treasure. You only save a few seconds here and there, but over the course of an entire run that could add up to several minutes of time saves by skipping dialogue.

Very cool find. I will definitely be doing some more runs with this trick.

Looking forward to seeing how much time it saves over a full run, GL

Just tried it out and I saved 10+ minutes on the WR. I ended up dying on the last boss... 3 times, so it ended up killing the run. Anyways this trick is very helpful. It may be possible to get the run as low as 1:20.

Damn dude! That’s a lot more of a time save then I would have expected honestly. Now I just have to good enough at the game to get a competitive time lol
