Any% (BiTE)

This new revision of the Wii Any% route is several (estimated 10+) minutes faster than the old Any% route. It is not RTA-friendly, but it is RTA-feasible. Epona Seam Clip and Gorge Void makes a very brutal beginning and the majority of the tricks are forced with no backups or route-arounds.

Note that most GCN&Wii tricks/glitches linked in this route are done on Gamecube and therefore are mirrored on the Wii version.

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

Route intended for Wii 1.0 (any region)

Equips are routed into the route and listed after changes occur. In the route, equips in gold are equips that you directly changed with that equip. Equips in maroon are equips that were modified without you directly changing them (this includes Ooccoo/Ooccoo Jr transitions, Lent Bag Losses, etc.) - these are color-coded for your awareness only.

Alternative Routing with Bomb Duping

There exist some routes that steal and duplicate the Lent Bomb Bag as wolf. Here is an ideal route that is ~5 seconds slower, but arguably more consistent:

  • Same route up through Lanayru Twilight
  • Warp to Zora's Domain and dash to UZR
  • Steal Lent Bomb Bag as wolf
    • If you trigger fight as human then savewarp
    • Warp back to UZR to duplicate the bag
    • Talk to Iza at the end to refill the duped bag
  • Warp Castle Town
  • Transform to human, and Ooccoo back to Lakebed
    • A side effect is having 4 boomerangs equipped. Just re-equip needed items over
  • Finish Lakebed II as described above
    • Small key in Single Cog 1F
    • Empty bombs for WB chest on 2F
    • Early Deku Toad
    • Clawshot
  • Backtrack to LBT center (don't Ooccoo out)
  • Vine clip
  • Beat Morpheel
    • Duped bag will reset to having 30 normal bombs
  • Midna's Desperate Hour
  • Warp Zora's Domain
  • Go to Snowpeak
    • As human, begin emptying bomb bag (needs to depleted by CitS)
  • Snowboarding etc.
  • Snowpeak Ruins with MB courtyard boost as described above
  • Savewarp immediately after B&C
    • Don't need to grab either 100R
  • Leave SPR and warp to Lake Hylia
  • Routes converge at Getting to Arbiter's Grounds, just drop bombs in AG (return to route)

Other Alternatives

  • In lieu of the route above, doing Snowpeak right after bomb duping, then completing Lakebed is also an option. However this isn't any faster, and harder to optimize. Here is a comparison video for the two bomb dupe routes.
  • For a no-seam clip route, see the Any% Forest route page.
