Mine would be when I hit the WR on a game (meeblings) while practicing the run. I was never able to get it again.

I helped bring down the time in survival kids with glitch 🙂

Beating a children's video game in one sitting. 8.5 hours of Harvest Moon 64. Much rejoicing afterward

My 4:02 IL WR for Showdown at Big Honshu in Battalion Wars 2. Previous record was 4:25, I'd been consistently getting 4:26, then suddenly I got that. It was complete luck that got me that, and I can't say I'll ever be able to reproduce it.

Best Achievement imo:
"Getting Started" - "You completed your first speedrun. congratz!"

Seeing my practice pay off in the games I put time into.

Finding a skip to get rid of a very inconsistent and run-killing piece of RNG has probably been the best thing I've done so far.

I've managed to save a minute in a run nearly ten minutes long, mostly through better execution.
It feels good to have a strong run.

Nailing the hard shit in cv1 at agdq2017

Humblebrag alert, but running inFAMOUS First Light at AGDQ 2018. Had the time of my life. Plus it's apparently the only run ever where the stream crashed mid-run, so I'm the answer to a trivia question~!

Getting sub 45 in OoT3D any%. It's a goal I set for myself when I first started speedrunning. It's an awful time and really easy to get, but it meant a lot to me when I got it, to achieve the very first goal I set for myself.

The original setup for ACE in Zelda 1 was believed to be impossible on console (specifically WiiVC); it was thought to be Emu only.

After experimenting with it, I discovered a very precise way to get it on console involving getting hit and activiating the ACE a certain number of frames after. I was the first to figure this out.

In the end, it was obsoleted by a significantly faster method that worked on console in a simpler way, but it was still really exciting for me when I found that original way to do what everyone thought wasn’t possible.

Hitting WR in PlayStation game I've played most (Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six)


Realizing I can actually speedrun anything at all.

Sub 11:40 in Kirby's Dream Land for me, took me over 2500 attempts if recall. I'm slow on the uptake I suppose.

Actually Getting some of my best friends into doing runs. Co-op Runs are fun times, And Space invaders '99 is a tough game to run,Mine and Amonsvikings WR run of 23:00 flat igt,Run has 3 deaths that did not matter much at all. It was probably my favorite moment in a co-op run.


My Cuphead All Bosses Simple Current Patch 32:28 run. (With loads) Could've probably been a sub 30 if my controller batteries hadn't died and if I didn't die at Wally Warbles, but other than that I'm very proud of this run SeemsGood
