I just wanted to share a few category ideas I thought were cool:
"All Bosses" and "All Keys".

 
  LINK05LINK05

Can you show a video of what a run would look like of those category ideas

 
  SMN05SMN05

that would take a lot of time, but I can explain if that's fine

All Bosses:
Defeat all "main bosses" from a new file (Goomboss, King Boo, Chief Chilly and all 3 Bowsers) no glitch restrictions. its optional if you want to add small bosses (wiggler, bully, big boo, Ice Bully, Eyerock) It's not necessary to get 80 stars.

All Keys:
collect all keys which include all rabbits + 3 Bowsers + Goomboss, King Boo, Chief chilly or anyone else I'm missing out. no glitch restrictions for this one too, and collecting 80 stars would not be required.

I think it would be fun to come up different strats/techniques to get the best run possible. I hope I explained well. If you still don't understand you can ask, but it's not like the Mod's are gonna add this. Well we do have a lot of categories already though.

General rule of thumb for this game is: if people run a category it can get added. If something has no runs or very few runs it will probably not get added.

That’s a good explanation still a video would probably be better not just for explanation

I would've run it, if this was a category, there is no point in running it when there is no category + I suck at glitches (moat skip, rabbit clips). And @MoritzSnowMoritzSnow, I thought categories were added first, then people ran them. So does that mean people used to run BitDW & BitFS then they were added?

Idk about how BBitDW and BBitFS were added but there is no point to make a category on src if nobody actually runs it. From todays point of view 50 star and 8 star and probably even 80 star are all outdated (or could just be included in any%) but they have their own categories with certain rules because many people enjoy running within these rules. Without these runs there would be no point to have a category for 50 star or 8 star.
However I don´t think src really matters to whether or not you can do runs of a category. If you find joy running "all bosses" then by all means run "all bosses" maybe it will catch on, maybe it won´t. : )

@SMN05SMN05 here is a link with all categories that already exist but have too less runners to be on src leaderboard

You can submit a run on this categories by posting it in @GeneralGeneral on that server: https://discord.gg/NgXDraXj

Maybe a 12 stars (misc categories)and 31 stars (normal categories) can also be added.

 
  SMN05SMN05

This is cool @RatioRatio I didn't know that those categories existed, they are all cool ideas, I will run them for fun and also I didn't know there was a discord server for SM64DS challenges, but I have joined now : )

@UndovUndov, Technically 30 star and 12 star exist. 30 star is BBitFS & 12 star is BBitDW

 
  UndovUndov

I know BBitDW and BBitFS exist but in this categories, you beat the first Bowser or the first and second Bowser and that's it, so why not finishing the game after that.

 
  SMN05SMN05

IDK, I think its fine like this

12 Star and 31 Star didn´t make sense. If you want to collect that amount of stars and beat BitDW/BisFS than just run that categorie. If you want to beat the final Bowser with less than 50 STars, you have to do 50sds and if you can do the hard rabbit clip, you can also just do the easy one, which means you don´t have to collect 31 Star to enter FS, which results in an 8 Star run.

"All bosses" is almost the exact same thing as all characters, an already existing category that almost no one runs, since you have to beat all of the character bosses for that. "All keys" would also be very very similar and wouldn't really have any point to it since the rabbits add very little to the actual gameplay of the run so it would just be all characters but with a bunch of extra castle movement and also 50 stars to get Wario's upstairs rabbits
