OCD Challenge

  • Play Mode
    • All Characters
    • Optional: Single Character Random (for added difficulty)
      • If you get stuck with Mario on 1-2 or 4-2, you may use the Level Select cheat to restart the level until you get a different character, since Mario cannot destroy all of the bricks
  • Difficulty
    • Normal
  • Mandatory Cheats
    • Infinite Time
  • Goal
    • Finish the game without warping and while meeting the following criteria
      • Kill every enemy you see (this includes Lakitu and all his Spinies)
        • Bowser must be killed by weapons, not the axe
        • Exceptions
          • The flying Cheep Cheeps in 2-3, 7-3, and 8-4
          • Bullet Bills (sometimes you're surrounded by cannons and simply cannot kill them all, but you should try to kill as many as you can)
          • The Piranha Plant in 4-4 (unless you're using Bill Rizer, fully-powered Link, Simon, or SOPHIA)
          • If Lakitu comes on screen and then leaves because you reach an area where he doesn't go, you may ignore him, but you should try to kill him if you can
      • Destroy all bricks
      • Collect all coins, including:
        • Free-standing
        • Coin blocks
        • Multi-coin blocks
        • Hidden coin blocks
      • Collect all power-ups
      • Collect all 1-Ups (hidden and otherwise)
      • Collect all Missiles and Homing Missiles dropped by enemies (unless they are unreachable)
      • Get 5,000 points at the flagpole at the end of each level
    • Once you fail to meet any of the above criteria, the game is over (so pay attention!)
    • You may choose whichever path through a level you desire (i.e., you can use bonus rooms), but you must kill/destroy/get everything along that path
      • You do not have to go into coin heaven, but if you do you must grab all of the coins
  • Tips
    • This isn't a speedrun, so take your time and make sure you kill/destroy/get everything!
    • Buzzy Beetles are not exempt from the killing spree, so be sure to choose the right character for the right level
    • Remember that with Mario you must be large to destroy bricks, so if you are playing Single Character Random and you get Mario for those few castles with bricks while fighting Bowser (2-4, 3-4, and 5-4), you have to make sure you get to him while large!

Pacifist Challenge Thread

  • Play Mode
    • All Characters | Survival | Single Character | Single Character Random
  • Difficulty
    • Super Easy | Easy | Normal | Hard | Extreme

Pet Bullet Challenge Thread

  • Play Mode
    • All Characters | Survival | Single Character | Single Character Random

    • Super Easy | Easy | Normal | Hard | Extreme
  • Goal
    • Keep the same Bullet Bill on the screen from the first blaster until the end of the level

Stingy Challenge

  • Play Mode
    • All Characters | Survival | Single Character | Single Character Random
  • Difficulty
    • Super Easy | Easy | Normal | Hard | Extreme
  • Goal
    • Finish the game without collecting a single coin
      • If you collect a coin, the game is over
      • I have not tried this yet and therefore do not know if there are coins that must be obtained. Remove this comment and explain where the unavoidable coins are if you know of any. --sbq92 18:42, 27 February 2011 (PST)

Starman Distance-run

  • Play Mode
    • All Characters | Survival | Single Character | Single Character Random
  • Difficulty
    • Super Easy | Easy | Normal | Hard | Extreme
  • Goal
    • In a level with a Starman, get the Star and run as far as you can. If you want to make your record public, follow the following instructions. Once your Star is used up, press Print Screen and put that in an IMP. Save it. If you don't have a Print Screen button, follow the following instructions: First, pause the game. Next, open a new tab/window in your browser. Depending on your world, go to the correct Worlds & Level page:

Warp zone.png
1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
?

    • Copy the map of the level you were in into an image manipulation program (i.e. Paint, GIMP, Photoshop, etc...). Mark the place where you were. Measure the length of pixels between where you got the star and where it was used up. Put the number of tiles on the forums (one tile is 32 pixels in the game and 16 pixels on the map). If you didn't have a Print Screen button, crop the edited map down to 256 pixels long and 240 pixels tall so that it's zoomed in to the part where you were when it got used up. Double its size (but make sure it's indexed first, click here to see how to do that in GIMP without saving it as a .gif file since .gif files can only be either indexed or greyscale). Put that on the forums too.

Tips and Advice

  • Pay attention to the clock. If the time ends with a 1, a 3, or a 6 when you finish the level, you get fireworks, which takes up time. Also, easier difficulties give you more time on the clock, which means it takes longer for your time to drain and rack up your points at the end of a level. (Optional: Use the Infinite Time cheat to avoid any time-related slow-downs.)
  • Choose your difficulty wisely. The Super Easy difficulty makes most enemies die in a single hit, and blocks are destroyed in one hit as well. If using the Infinite Time cheat, Super Easy is the way to go. Otherwise, you will want a higher difficulty for less time on the clock.
  • Consider not getting power-ups. It takes time to power-up your character, and since you're just running through enemies anyway, your character doesn't need to be more powerful. Some characters can make use of power-ups, however, and therefore it is worth taking a couple of seconds to power-up in order to save many seconds later on. For example, Mega Man can make excellent use of his charge shot in some places to remove many bricks in his way. Likewise, it might be helpful to grab the spread gun with Bill Rizer in order to clear bricks away quickly when necessary. Consider your difficulty, though. If it's an easier difficulty and it would be faster in the long run for your character to kill Bowser rather than grab the axe and wait for the bridge to disappear and for Bowser to fall in, then take the time to grab power-ups. Make sure you can get them in such a way that doing so doesn't interfere with your route, though.
  • Take advantage of your character's special abilities. While not all of the characters have anything useful, some of them do. Ryu's wall-climbing can be used to get to the top of 1-2 and 4-2 right from the beginning of the stage, and therefore you can avoid trying to maneuver through enemies and platforms. SOPHIA's hover can be invaluable in some places, as can her quick jump off of walls. Make use of these abilities!
  • Practice the levels. Make use of the level select cheat in order to practice levels repeatedly. Practicing can help you find the best routes and strategies for getting through the level as quickly as possible. It can also help you get better at avoiding places in the level where you normally die. While dying is technically allowed in the run, I personally would start over if I died (unless it was in 8-4 or something else late in the game).
  • Utilize secret areas. There are some secret areas that take you much further in the level, and therefore are worth taking. An example of this is the secret in 1-1. It skips the entire middle section of the level, saving a lot of time. Be sure to practice each level to determine which secrets are useful, though. Some of them send you back, and some only send you one or two pipes over. Same for the coin heavens. Make sure the amount of time it takes to activate the vine, climb the vine, and reach the end of coin heaven is worth it.
  • Try to avoid killing enemies/grabbing coins unnecessarily. Practicing the levels can help show you which enemies to kill and which to avoid. While you technically don't have to kill any enemies at all, it can be fun to kill some enemies along the way to help the entertainment value of your run (if you're recording). Some enemies are placed in such a way that killing them might slow you down, however, so be sure to know which you can kill and which you should avoid. This goes for coins as well. Sometimes jumping for coins will cause you to run into a wall or a pipe before you land, and this slows you down. Only go for coins you know you can get without slowing yourself down.
  • Have fun with it! If you record your runs, make sure they look good and are entertaining. Don't simply run straight through levels in a boring manner. Even if you're not recording, for personal enjoyment, have some fun trying and doing fancy things. You might even find some time-saving tricks this way!
