Everywhere Any All Shinespark frame window Show Beginner Video
The window of time between when you activate a grounded shinespark and when you can press a directional button is half a second -- specifically, if you press jump to activate it on Frame 0, you can press right and jump as early as Frame 2, and as late as Frame 30. Jump technically doesn't need to be held, but that will be easiest for all non-TAS runs. If the inputs aren't correctly done for an angle or horizontal shinespark in this window, it will be vertical.

The window of time to press right or angle up with an aerial shinespark is almost the same as a grounded shinespark -- 1 to 29 frames after activating it, instead of 2 to 30.

This video shows the shinespark being activated on the last frame possible (3 seconds after charging), and then the shinespark being started on the last frame (half a second after activating).

To perform the Green Gate Glitch, stand at least a pixel behind the gate, aiming up+left, and jump. Immediately after jumping, press left, then immediately fire a Super Missile. With proper timing, the gate should open.

Note that this is also possible to do with Blue Gates as well, and if doing it with a Blue Gate it is possible to use regular missiles as well.

0. Obtain a Flash Suit.

1. Bomb jump straight upward. (Alternately, roll off of a 4-tile-high ledge, but this setup is harder.)

2. As you fall, place a Power Bomb so that only a couple pixels are visible of Samus's shoulder when she's crouching. (Watch the video to see the correct placement.)

3. Allow the bounce from the Power Bomb to stand you up.

4. Watch the Power Bomb animation carefully. When you see the entire screen light up, wait 1 second, then tap Jump.

5. As soon as Samus begins the Shinespark animation, press and hold ONLY the Crystal Flash inputs (L, R, Down, Shot)

The game detects whether Samus is in contact with tiles every other frame. As a result, items in the ceiling like this only have a 50% chance of being collected each attempt if you contact both the item and the ceiling tile adjacent to it.
Everywhere Any All Arm Pumping Show Beginner Video
While running, each change in position of Samus' cannon moves her forward by one pixel.

While mashing as fast as possible will create the most arm pumps and give the most benefit, even a relaxed arm pump will speed up several rooms by a significant number of frames.

That said, it is important to keep in mind the small amount of timesave relative to other aspects of the run -- it's best to avoid arm pumping if it has a chance of interfering with other controls. In this example, accidentally shooting a Super while holding Angle Up or Angle Down will likely result in bonking the door, and will cost much more time than arm pumping saved for that room.

Maridia West Sand Hole All Suitless Maridia Reserve and Missile (Left Sand Pit) using Hi-Jump Boots, Power Bombs Show Intermediate Video
In SM Arcade, the West Sand Hole contains a Missile pack and a Reserve Tank, a tantalizing treat for anyone capable of reaching it (in addition to the BREAK FREE achievement and associated point gain). Otherwise, the West Sand Hole is usually only visited suitless in randomizers due to its otherwise lackluster contents.

Note that this video expends 3 Power Bombs, but the full trick may be performed using only two. The Reserve Tank may be acquired by exploiting Samus' turning animation.

This is most easily performed by rolling against the pedestal in Morph Ball, then tapping Left to turn around without moving, then unmorphing and turning Right to clip into the Reserve Tank item with little fuss.


More details on individual steps in the trick are available in the YouTube video description.

4. At the crest of your jump, jump forward again. Continue to do so until you reach the far wall. Turn around, and continue spin-jumping until you are out!
Maridia Shaktool room 100% new Shaktool speed-strategy for TAS and humans Show Beginner Video
The first shown method in the video needs good timing and precision, and is thus meant for TAS (one turns around as ball right after shooting the projectile). The second method is easily doable: First one can get in contact with shaktool for temporary invulnerability to safely get to the right side without any annoying knockback as ball to shoot at the snail during the crouch and facing left when it gets hit so it stays within the screen which it needs to be able to move. Then one gets temporary invulnerability again to be able to quickly move past the snail (without getting stopped by it). The general idea of the trick is to manipulate the snail to break blocks instead of Shaktool.
Maridia Mama Turtle Room All Mama Turtle Room without Gravity or Grapple Show Beginner Video
If you have Hi-Jump Boots and Speed Booster but no Gravity Suit, you can jump from the top-left ledge in the room, then walljump off the side of the pedestal.
Maridia Mama Turtle Room 100% Mama Turtle Item Collection Show Beginner Video
The easiest method to collect the Energy Tank is to charge a shinespark, then jump off the ledge towards the center of the room, and spark up. The fastest way is to charge the spark while you open the red door, but you could alternatively open the door, then charge the spark through the room transition.

If you end up standing on the Energy Tank's platform after collecting it, you can run off the ledge to the right, angle down, and fire to expose the missiles, and you'll collect them. You'll likely need to stand left of the center of the platform to get enough run speed for this.
Maridia Mainstreet 100% Main Street Missile 2-tap shinespark Show Beginner Video
To get the missile pack, the optimal shinespark is along the floor, but this is a very difficult short charge, requiring a stutter-3, or a 4-tap. Slightly slower is to go up to the platform with the door to Fish Tank, and do a 2-tap. A 1-tap will also work, but the spark would need to be charged very late on the platform, so a 2-tap would be more comfortable for most runners.

The spark can be lined up using either the 3-leaf plant on the ground, or by brushing up against the right side of the bottom-left floating platform.

Without short charging, this requires starting a charge in Crab Tunnel, but many people find this more difficult than the 2-tap on the platform above, because of the door transition being in the middle of the maneuver.
Maridia Aqueduct All Fast Snail Climb Show Intermediate Video
By crouching and holding down while on the crab you'll get pushed up by it while it's moving without taking damage.

Note that the camera will not follow you when you do this so you have to rely on visual cues for when to jump off onto the platform.

(This does not work in the PAL version)

Due to the slightly different physics used in the PAL version, this spark cannot be done from the floor, jumping up before activating the spark is required to clear the overhang.
Maridia Mt. Everest Any% Everest Spark Show Beginner Video
The most common method to reach the upper right door of the room is to charge a shinespark along the floor of the room, then hold Angle Up to do a diagonal spark while standing between the second and third floating islands.

If you want to save health for Botwoon, you can spinjump up before sparking to slightly reduce the distance required.
Maridia Mt. Everest Any% Everest Pseudo Screw Show Beginner Video
Only a couple seconds slower than the diagonal spark to the top-right of Everest, you can also get there with a jump from just after the peak of the second island, then walljumping the rest of the way up. You'll need to charge a shot in order to Pseudo Screw through the Powamp.

Jump on top of the Namihe, making sure to avoid any fireballs in the way. Walljump off of the Namihe above and let your momentum carry you to the right wall below the final Namihe. Walljump in place until an opportune time (when there isn't a fireball in the way) to walljump off of the final Namihe. Alternatively, you can skip walljumping off the final Namihe if you are comfortable doing so. Use your momentum to hit the final walljump off of the side of the top left platform near Ridley's maw.

Hold an angle button through the door transition, while letting go of the dpad, and you will stop on a dime on the solid block next to the door. This will allow you to check the item location in randomizer without falling down.

Just be careful about the Dessgeega when going back in the previous room, since suitless they do 80 damage.
Norfair Crumble Shaft 100% Crumble Shaft missiles (optimal) Show Advanced Video
Fire a shot as you crest the third small hill, and release dash at the same time. This will open the door with enough time that you can run through. Start holding another shot before you hit the door, and release shot during the door transition. Once the next room loads, the shot should fire automatically, and you can jump to the other side.

The window on this jump is very small before you hit the crumble blocks, so you'll need to be precise. If the second Dessgeega jumps low, you'll need to fire the shot while Samus is inside its hitbox, where you can fire it earlier if the Dessgeega jumps high.
Norfair Crumble Shaft 100% Crumble Shaft missiles (intermediate) Show Intermediate Video
In the beginner strategy, the shinespark crash animation does cost time, so it would be faster to Space Jump across the room, as long as you're confident in not falling down.

One thing to watch out for is that the missile pack takes about 10 frames to spawn after the shot block gets destroyed, so in order for Samus' hitbox to touch the missile pack without falling past it, you will generally need to fire your shot at the peak of a jump, or while rising.
Norfair Crumble Shaft 100% Crumble Shaft missiles (beginner) Show Beginner Video
This strat uses a shinespark to reach the missile location.

You can attempt a 2-tap short charge, and if you run into one of the enemies you can continue holding Dash and Left, and use your i-frames to get through the rest of the enemies. Then charge the shinespark, open the door, and spark through. After you crash against the wall, hold Left and Angle Down and fire a shot, and you'll pick up the item.

Wrecked Ship Sponge Bath All Sponge Bath Strats Show Intermediate Video
A list off all the different strats to get through Sponge Bath (as far as I'm aware). There are other ways of doing these strats, but I only showed one way for each. For the speed booster method, a three tap is all that is needed, you don't need to do a stutter. On the spring ball jump, make sure you don't pause too early or late. The bomb jumps are pretty precise so they can be difficult. You want to place the bombs about where they are in the video, and they can even be a little higher. The bomb jumps are exactly the same with power bombs as well. If you run low on power bombs, the Bull (sponge) will drop some. Any of these methods can be forced in Total's randomizer.

Start moving forward at the moment the water reaches it's lowest point. The first tap happens about the same time as the splash animation that appears as you exit the water. The second tap should be right before you enter the door. This makes it quite a bit easier than the 1 tap method since it gives you more room to grab the spark and a bit of space for running speed through the door to bowling. Use the patch for InfoHUD that shows the dash counter to make sure you have both taps before you hit the door transition.

Brinstar Red Tower All Upper Red Tower Spark Show Intermediate Video
This isn't used in any categories, but is a neat trick to know.
Brinstar Warehouse Entrance All Upper Norfair Elevator Crystal Flash Suit Show Beginner Video
Obtain a Flash Suit from the Business Center elevator. Uses: shinespark to bypass gates to get Ice Beam in Dashless categories, or obtain a Blue Suit without needing Speed Booster.

Setting up

First, make sure you meet all the criteria for crystal flashing: Empty any Reserve Tanks, Energy is 50 or less, have at least 10 Missiles, 10 Super Missiles, and 11 Power Bombs. (Since the Power Bomb placement is tricky, the more you start with, the better!)

Second, turn off ALL BEAM upgrades.

Now, stand on the elevator, slightly off-center, and face left. Note the 4 horizontal lines in the background above the elevator.

Here's what you do

Jump and do a mid-air morph while ascending. (You should be in ball form when you hit the ceiling.)

On the way down, lay a Power Bomb so that it's in the center between the bottom two horizontal lines.

As soon as you lay the power bomb, unmorph and hold R+Shot. (You don't need to worry about standing, since the bounce from the bomb will stand you up.)

Count 5 shots, and as soon as the fifth shot releases, press and hold L in addition to R and Shot. (I actually count it off like 1-2, 1, 2, 3)

Press down as soon as the 5th shot hits the ceiling. Here's the key: The correct frame is when you hear the collision sound effect, but before you see the explosion.

Why does this work?

Bonking on the ceiling will normalize your fall speed and ensure that you pass through the correct vertical pixel.

When you lay a Power Bomb, your beam is disabled for a moment until the PB enters the second state of its animation cycle (it starts spinning faster after a moment). So, by holding Shot, you will fire as soon as your beam is unlocked, therefore the timing is consistent!
Brinstar Warehouse Energy Tank Room All Turnaround Tank Show Intermediate Video
Seems more consistent and about as fast as the bomb strat for this room. Turn around under the tank to avoid getting screwed by the collision oscillator. Can be done with only one missile with better item selecting.

Brinstar Pink Brinstar Hopper Room All Pink Brin Reverse Green Gate Glitch Show Beginner Video
A simple way to get past the gate in this room without having wave. Works with and without high jump, although HJ definitely makes things easier.
Brinstar Noob Bridge All Noob Bridge Spike Suit Flash Suit Show Beginner Video
Items Needed: Speed Booster, Morphing Ball, Bombs (or a Power Bomb), turn off Springball

0. (optional) Kill all the frogs and cacti around the bridge.

1. Run along the bridge (either direction) and crouch to store a shinespark.

2. Morph, lay a bomb and bounce upward.

3. On the frame you hit the spikes, or the frame after, mash the jump button!

If done correctly, you will be blue and suspended midair. Activate a Shinespark by pressing Jump along with Up, R, or Forward (It doesn't matter, since you'll crash immediately). You now have a Shinespark stored!

There are great resources that explain Spike Suits more thoroughly, but I decided that there should be a simple and easy guide to set one up. Click here for more info on Spike Suits!
Brinstar Dachora Room All Moondance Tutorial Show Beginner Video
Have had some questions recently about how Moondance works/how to do it, so I recorded a tutorial thing about it. :)
Brinstar Red Tower Any% Lower Red Tower with only Hi Jump Boots Show Beginner Video
The walljump off of the ledge will be in the logic of most randomizers, as long as you have Hi Jump Boots. Ice Beam is not necessary to climb this room.

It's also used for Any% KPDR, after the runners drop Early Ice.

Brinstar Green Shaft All Ice clip through PB floor in Green Shaft Show Beginner Video
The most useless ice clip in the game. seriously, unless you moondanced into here in a rando, have ice beam, and have no power bombs, just get one from a beetom.

if you are blackelitejohn, just time the shot right, and you can get out of the etecoons area without power bombs
Brinstar Red Tower Elevator Any% High Bomb (KPDR) Show Intermediate Video
If you bonk the door coming out of alpha power bombs and release run in the door transition you can jump up to that first platform without needing to wall jump.

The speedy jump after the second cacatac is tricky and doesn't save much time, so opting to skip that is probably best.

Brinstar Early Super Room All Early Super Missiles Mockball Show Beginner Video
Mockball is a key trick for speedruns that allows skipping intended Spore Spawn super missiles in pink brinstar. Mockball allows Samus to keep her running speed when she morphs into a ball and get under the gates at crumble block bridge in green brinstar. Normally this bridge would require speed booster.

This early supers tutorial is made by Kottpower.
Brinstar Dachora Room All Double Reo Farm Show Intermediate Video
Allows both Reos to be farmed. Requires having a Missile. For lower-percentage categories, that would basically mean having acquired a Missile drop from the Waver when acquiring Super Missiles.
Brinstar Warehouse Kihunter Room All Damageless & Missileless Show Intermediate Video
All it takes is a handful of arm pumps. If you choose to fall into the hole by running over it rather than jumping into it as shown, you'll want to face down to not be cleaved by the other Kihunter.

Brinstar Blue Brinstar Energy Tank Room All Blue Brinstar E-Tank damage boost Show Beginner Video
The Tournament randomizer has in logic the ability to damage boost off of the Reo into the energy tank in the ceiling. You can do this by standing just to the right of the energy tank, and doing a full jump shortly before the Reo hits the ground during its swoop.

If you mess up, some people find it easier to just reset the room. Alternatively, you could kill the Reo and wait for the Geemer to come around so you can damage boost off of it.

Brinstar Blue Brinstar Boulder Room All Blue Brinstar Boulder Room suitless Show Beginner Video
In Full Randomizer, you'll often want to check the Billy Mays Room before picking up Gravity Suit. To get on top of the invisible platform in the Boulder Room, jump into the door transition. You may need to walljump off of the side of the invisible platform if you have Hi-Jump Boots or if you jump into the door very early.

After checking the items, you can make it through the door just by firing an angle-down shot and running through, but the timing of that shot can be tough. Otherwise, you'll end up in the water. To get out, you can do a crouch-jump downgrab when the water level is at its highest, as shown in the video. Alternatively, you can run and walljump below the door when the water is at its lowest.
Brinstar Warehouse Energy Tank Room All Beetomic Bomb Show Intermediate Video
This is faster than using a Missile. TAS would use multiple Missiles instead of this. But for humans, this is basically the fastest thing you can be doing for this room. Hardest aspect of this strategy is cleanly grabbing the tank with a walljump check. It's easy to either not touch it or be too close to it and get yourself inside the gap in the ceiling, which makes your exit worse.
Brinstar Hellway Any% 3 farm (KPDR) Show Intermediate Video
Just about half a second slower than doing 2 dboosts, and you get 3 drops. Unfortunately Zeelas mainly drop missiles and small energy, so this is really not worth it unless you are absolutely desperate.

Crateria Moat All Spring ball over the moat Show Beginner Video
Useful for randomizer. If you have springball, you can mid-air morph, bounce off of the missile platform, and land on the other side.

It is technically possible to do this with Hi-Jump Boots, but significantly harder, so you'll likely want to turn them off before attempting this.
Crateria Parlor Any% Space Jump Speedball Show Beginner Video
In KPDR, the optimal strat for getting through Parlor at the end of the game on the way to Tourian is to Space Jump through the bomb blocks, but this variation is significantly easier, and only slightly slower.

Jump over the mound, use Space Jump to stay in the air, then morph into a Speedball on the far side of the pit. You can use the ceiling so that you can make the Space Jump a full jump.

Optimally, you will unmorph sooner than in the video, so you can open the door sooner.
Crateria West Ocean 100% Sky Missile collection Show Beginner Video
To collect the top "Sky Missile", the easiest method is to use a diagonal shinespark launched from the isolated floating island, but this does cost both the time of the crash animation, and has a health cost as well.

Optimally, you can jump up from the top of the ridge, and arrest your horizontal momentum at the right moment to hit the missile location.

The "intended" strat is to ride the Trippers in succession to the upper missile location, so while this is tedious, it's in logic for Item Randomizer, with any item set that allows access to Wrecked Ship. This is especially time-consuming because the Trippers only move when they're on-screen.

Crateria Parlor All Parlor blocks with speed booster, no short charge Show Beginner Video
Randomizers often require breaking through the parlor with speed booster. Here's how to do it if you can't pull off the short charge.
Crateria Parlor All Parlor blocks with only Speed Booster Show Beginner Video
If you only have Speed Booster, you can get through these bomb blocks in Parlor with no other items. Even easier randomizers will have this in logic because you can build a shinespark from the Ship, then jump over the mound, and shinespark through the bomb blocks. However, this is much easier.

This only requires a 1-tap to get the Blue Suit before you reach the end of the platform. From the mound, start walking left, then begin holding Dash half a second later.
Crateria West Ocean Any% Ocean Fly Show Intermediate Video
Open the Power Bomb door in the Kihunter Room, charge a shinespark, and go through the door to the Moat. Spinjump towards the pillar, fire a shot at the door, then activate the shinespark with Up or Angle Up, let go, press Right, then press Jump. If you time it right, the shot will hit the door and open it before you fly through.

The shot is most commonly a Super Missile, but can be a Missile or beam shot, but these have different timings.

The much easier alternative is the two-spark, starting the first spark in the Kihunter Room, then doing a separate spark in West Ocean. This is slightly slower, but much easier, and saves the health of sparking across the first part of West Ocean.
Crateria Statues Hallway All Mockball practice room Show Beginner Video
The Statues Hallway lies between the Statues Room ("Golden Four"), and the Green Pirates Shaft. This room is wide open, long, and has a flat floor, making it ideal to practice mockballs.

The Early Supers mockball has a door transition in the middle and has a small gap between the ceiling and the platform, which can make learning the necessary inputs tougher.

Crateria West Ocean All Gravity Suit Backdoor (Bowling skip) Show Intermediate Video
It is possible to enter the Gravity Suit room from the back door using Grapple to get stuck inside the wall and then doing a Crystal Flash to force-stand. After that you can X-Ray climb up into the door transition.

Note that this still requires Phantoon to be defeated, otherwise Gravity Suit will not be spawned at its location.

Crateria Terminator Room All Full Speed Terminator Show Advanced Video
If you can time your shots appropriately, you can move through this room with as much speed (i.e. do as much arm pumping) as you can handle. There are potential backups for the end of the room in the event you miss a shot and take a hit.

From the pits with the Boyons, run left towards the door, and charge a shinespark. Then run to the right, jumping over the pits. The blue suit from the speed booster will prevent them from knocking you down. Then you can shinespark up the shaft, so you can grab the Climb Supers.

The infohud counter at the top left shows the duration of the shinespark, you can see that the window for the spark is relatively tight.
