GCN 100% Plus


This run is long, so it is a good idea to have food handy and plan to take bathroom break(s). Consult the rightmost column of the list of cutscene lengths to find viable cutscenes for breaks. Note that according to the TA rules for this category, one 45 minute break may be taken with the timer paused as well.

German is currently understood to be the fastest version for this category by at least one minute due to the faster rupee and bomb bag text boxes, and the large number of rupees obtained during the run.

It is helpful to watch a top run on the leaderboard for reference when learning, as this route document can only go into so much detail.

Runs should start with a blank file in slots 1, 2, and 3, as all files are used during the run.
