Any%(No Gambling) - Step by Step learning guide (Former WR route)

By KLM1187KLM1187 Last updated

Legend of the Mystical Ninja - SNES - Any%(No Gambling)

*These notes were made using the former WR Video for Any%(No Gambling) - Formarly Low% category by Matchboxmatt - - Strats performed, and money at time of start of levels are all according to his run on speedrun.com - Money at start of level is just for reference.

These are also made for a beginners perspective who is familiar with the run already. This assumes you take no damage on the overworld sections and you manage your money and weapons exactly as Matt's run does

For more advanced and newer strats, refer to Zockerstu, or Teleo1 run!

Also apologize for any spelling errors 🙂
