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).

The Green Gate Glitch is a glitch lets you open left-facing gates from the right side using precise movement and shooting a super missile at the right time.

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.

Everywhere Any All Flash Suit to Blue Suit w/ Crystal Spark Show Beginner Video
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)

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.

Everywhere Any All Alternate Elevator Crystal Flash Suits Show Beginner Video
This is an appendix to my previous guide explaining how to obtain a Flash Suit from the Upper Norfair Elevator. Read this first!

Uses: backup strat or alternate route for Dashless runs. Get certain items without SpeedBooster. Something to do with underflowing ammo for Low Beam% maybe?

Every setup:
All beam upgrades must be disabled. Hi-Jump can be disabled to make PB placement easier. Be familiar with where the PB should look relative to Samus's hip! If you hear the "zwoosh" from the end of the PB sound effect, you pressed down too early! You should always hear the elevator!

Green/Blue Brinstar:
Stand on the left side of the elevator and face left. You have 3-4 pixels of leeway here. To get the correct vertical offset, hold jump, then hold down as well. Morph just after bonking on the ceiling. The frame to go down the elevator is the same as the Upper Norfair setup. If done right, you will hear the shot collide with the side of the overhang, but the collision particle will not be visible.

Lower Norfair:
Placing the PB is the same as the Green/Blue Brinstar setups: Hold jump, hold down, bonk, morph, PB. Get used to how the PB should look relative to Samus's hip, because there is no background sprite to align with here! After placing the PB, hold L+R+Shot to shoot straight up. Press down just as your last shot rises above the vertical portion of the overhangs.

Red Tower/Maridia:
This is trickier. The platform in the middle of the room is placed such that you must bonk off of it with a spin jump! Because of this, there's no way to set up your X coordinate for a nice audio cue. Spin jump, bonk off the bottom of the platform, press Down twice to morph, then place your PB. You can fire diagonal shots to help your rhythm, and your last shot will be somewhere near the center of the 4-square in the background. Obviously, the farther left your spin jump takes you, the farther left your shot will be when you want to go down the elevator.

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.

Align Samus with the edge of the horizontal platform above the door and run towards the open door. After taking approximately two steps forward, jump and hold jump. After the transition, hold down. With proper timing, you should have entered the lava pool without losing any momentum. From there, morph and hold left during the dive until you reach the far left Namihe. 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.

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. After reading this guide, click here for setups using different elevators.

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 Kraid's Room All Super Metroid - Kraid Quick Kill - Save One Super While Using The Easy Timing Charge Strat Show Beginner Video
This tutorial assumes you are familiar with the "Charge shot followed by 4 Super Missiles Kraid Quick Kill". It also shows how to do this with "Item Cancel" on Y and "Shoot" on X. However, this works with any button configuration where "Item Select" is on Select, and "Item Cancel" and "Shoot" are adjacent in your control scheme.

By positioning your left hand over the select button, you can save one Super Missile during the Kraid Quick Kill by replacing it with a regular Missile. To do so:
1. Fire the charge shot at Kraid's head
2. Select Super Missiles
3. Jump when Kraids mouth begins to open
4. Fire a Super Missile on the way up of your jump, fire another on the way down
5. Jump, fire a 3rd Super Missile on the way up again
6. Using your left hand, quickly press and hold "Item Select", followed by your right hand quickly swiping across your "Item Cancel" button then your "Shoot" button. In most cases, this will be the sequence SELECT (hold), Y, X. This sequence will cause you to deselect Super Missiles, and quickly select a single Missile and fire.

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!

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.

Crateria Moat All Springball over Moat w/ Hi-Jump Show Beginner Video
In randomizer, when using springball to bounce over the moat, the speed required is different depending on whether you have Hi-Jump Boots equipped. Without Hi-Jump, it's better to start running from inside the moat room.

But if you start running from the previous room, you can make the jump without taking the time to remove Hi-Jump Boots. Get some distance from the door to build enough horizontal speed. With this setup, then you want to jump soon after passing through the door. Morph soon after jumping as well, unlike the non-Hi-Jump version where you morph late.
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 West Ocean All Sky Missile collection with no items Show Beginner Video
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 this room. This is especially time-consuming because the Trippers only move when they're on-screen.

Walljumping off of the Trippers is finicky, because you will easily kago inside of them. If you're having trouble with this, it might be easier to follow the top Tripper all the way to the right-hand wall, and then walljump up to it there.

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 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.

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.

Crateria Crateria Super Room All Crateria Supers without Ice Beam Show Beginner Video
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.
