Web version. The part to skip ahead to is roughly at 7:00 in the video after I explain that I’m pausing. I found this by accident while practicing any% when I paused the game to respond to some Snapchat msgs. I have no clue why this happens, but it’s... something.

I would assume that's caused by pausing on the same frame as Bowser starts spawning enemies - there are many other glitches linked to pausing on specific frames. It's not useful, however.

It’s not the first frame tho, I’ve done this many times and there’s no way it’s always been in the first frame. I dont think it even is in the video either. It’s just odd. The only thing you could use it for is if you were doing some arbitrary speedrun of getting 1000 coins or something, or maybe in bingo if there was a thing for getting a certain amount of coins or lives.

Well anyways i know it’s not useful, just thought it’d be a good thing to add to our knowledge of the game, the “Fake Bowser Enemy Glitch”

Yeah it definitely is. That’s strange. You can probably do it in the backyard section as well with that fight

I'm fairly sure it is pausing on the same frame - some events are actually triggered at a different time to when they appear to be. It might be useful in the garden, actually, because the timing of moving onto the next stage of the fight can be affected by how many enemies you've killed.

Interesting glitch , altough I can't really find a use for it in Any% runs. However , it might be useful in the garden (for 100% or NMS).
