This is my 3rd version of one of the most difficult run forms in Super Metroid, aiming to beat the main bosses in reversed order, which forces to go through heated or water filled rooms without any of the suits for constant energy loss or greatly restricted movements. With an optimized route featuring new speed tricks and boss strategies exclusively developed for the unique conditions of this run, a completion time of 26 minutes is reached.

Guess at least one of us should say something, lol

This was a fantastic watch as always Saturn !. Draygon kill was just mind boggling. Like any good piece of art you have to keep coming back to it again and again to find little pieces of brilliance that you missed the first time, and this is no exception, and it's good to see the verdict over at TAS videos is looking very favorable Wink
Excellent run of the reverse boss order, especially with the Draygon battle.

My name is 4N6/Forensics.
Yea I posted on TAS Videos but, I'll post here as well because the run was just that DAMN GOOD!!!

Your a frame saving machine Saturn!!! Also the fact that you plan your own routes with no help is just amazing in its own right!!! I really can't wait to see what you have planned next. Please GOD let it be the 100% Run!!!

Thank you for all your hard work and congratulations on getting Published!!!!!!!

I thought I posted this the other day, but never mind.  At least Taiga stored it for me:

I'm sure there's going to be a reason, such as MB only being able to be hit on certain frames, but it seems like frames could be save during her fight by getting closer to her, so that the Plasma beam has zero travel time in getting to her after you charge each shot.  What's the reasoning behind it?
I've already made a post on tasvideos as well, but i'll post here too.  Incredible run, Saturn, I loved every frame of it.  Thank you for your dedication to TASing this game.
Quietus: the only shot that matters is the last one, which will make Mother Brain change for the next scrip stuff. Reason is, it doesn't matter if you hit each beam on Mother Brain from very close or from far, because you'll have to wait the same time for the beam to charge again. Note that the last shot is done from the closest spot.
I haven't watched this yet but I've seen the others. So I am going to assume you beat Mother Brain last. I think you should opt to beat all but the first Torizo and start at MB. The best place I found to exit to a save room would be at the ship using the initial door to exit using x-ray climb. You have to fall off to the left then right I believe to find the exit. You will eventually find something that leads to the room previous to the e-tank and 2 missle pickups. I wish I could find something shorter, but I think even in a TAS trying to get to brinstar will be a bitch.

But that's not the purpose of a RBO run.  The idea is the four statues that open the way to Tourian, which is why there onward is normal.  The four bosses that remove the statues are defeated in the reverse order.
