  1. The tournament will be 100%, on the English version
  2. Timing starts on file select on a Main Deck 00:00 file before talking to Adam and ends when Samus faces forward when beamed by her ship after defeating Omega Metroid
  3. Safety saves are permitted
  4. Streaming is required, and you must keep your stream up until the completion rate and IGT appears at the end of the credits. You may not have anything covering the completion rate or IGT on stream. If the rate cannot be seen, you will be considered as forfeiting your match. If the IGT cannot be seen,  you will be considered to have a 2:30 IGT for purposes of seeding for the bracket.
  5. For console streaming, you can use the Game Cube with the Game Boy Player attachment (You can either use the official start up disc, or if you can load homebrew, Game Boy Interface is also acceptable, be sure to use the Low-Latency version for best results)
  6. If you have a capture modded DS, that will be acceptable as well
  7. It is preferred to use an official cart with English text (NTSC/PAL are fine), but a flash cart with the US rom is also acceptable
  8. You can also use the Wii U Virtual Console and 3DS Virtual Console versions if you have those with English text, and can stream it
  9. Exception: If both racers agree to JP version, that may be raced instead. However, please do not do so if you will be running on emulator if you are otherwise able to run on console, especially if the other racer is still staying on console
  10. VBA (All Versions) is banned, use the latest version of BizHawk. If you need help getting it set up, click here. If you need further assistance, let an admin know. The most important settings you need for Bizhawk is (with a GBA rom loaded) GBA -> Core > mGBA and then Config -> Profiles... then select Tool-assisted Speedruns
  11. The use of Lua scripts is banned

Tournament Format

The tournament will be run in a 5 Round Swiss format through Challonge, with the top 35-45% advancing to a Single Elimination Bracket.  Byes will be awarded as needed for the first round to the top seeds to fit the players properly.

Those with 5-0 or 4-1 records in this stage will automatically advance to the bracket.  Those with 3-2 or possibly 2-3 records may have the chance to do an additional bracket play in race for the final spots if the those with better records do not account for 35-45% of the entrants. This will be one big race and the top players of this race will be placed at the end of the bracket seeding.

The seeding of the bracket will be in the following order:

1) Players with a 5-0 record

2) Players with a 4-1 record

3) Players with a 3-2 record

4) Players with a 2-3 record (if within top 35-45%)

* Players with the same record will be sorted first by Best Tournament IGT, followed by RNG if distinctive placement is not achieved with the first method. EXCEPTION: players involved in a play in race to make it into the bracket will be sorted by the results of that race.

Players will be expected to play 1 game per week

The seeding of the Swiss matches will be determined first by their 100%  IGT time as listed on speedrun.com as of August 11, 2017 7:00 PM EDT  (This is also when sign ups will be closed). In case of ties, the seeds for the tied players will be randomly determined among those players involved in the tie.  Players without a time on speedrun.com will be considered to have a time of 24 hours.


All Speed Runs Live (SRL) racing rules apply. All participants must use approved emulators/consoles and stream their races. We recommend that you locally save your race-stream file in the event that your stream is disconnected and you are “proofcalled” on your time. If you are not registered with SRL, please do so now. If you do not know how to set up or use an SRL account, please contact a moderator for assistance. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times.

Scheduled matches need to be played before the specified deadline for each round. 

You will be given 7 days to play each match.  We realize that a tournament of this magnitude has a lot of people with a lot of schedules to work around. That being said, if you schedule a match with someone and then bail on the scheduled time without prior notice, you may be removed from the tournament at the organizer's discretion.

Any disputes will be handled by the mod team, who will have final say in all matters.  Should a member of the mod team be involved in the dispute, that member will have no say in the final decision.

Match Procedure

Discuss and schedule a time to play your match against your opponent. The preferred method of contact is via Discord. You may also use Twitter, Challonge, and a Twitch direct message. These will be the methods we will ask you to explore if you have any issues contacting your opponent.

When both participants are ready, begin a race in the #speedrunslive IRC channel on irc.speedrunslive.com or at http://www.speedrunslive.com/channel/ with the command:

.startrace fusion

Once the race channel has been created, join that specific channel. Within the channel, change the goal to 100% with the command:

.setgoal 100% (or JP is agreed upon by both racers,

Once that has been completed, both participants should enter the race. This can be performed with the following command:


When both participants are ready to begin the race, have their stream available, and are waiting on a file on the file select screen, type the following command:


The Race bot will then begin to countdown in the race chat, and upon reaching 0 both players will begin the race. The conclusion of these race is when you lose control of Samus after defeating Omega Metroid (when Samus faces forward to enter the ship), at the point type the following command:


You must

And that’s it. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times. Congratulations!

Some additional handy commands for the race:

  • .quit - If something arises and you need to remove yourself from the race, then use the .quit command.

  • .undone - Use if you prematurely type .done or .quit before the race has ended.

FAQs / Q&As

  • In the rare case of a race tie (as determined by the .done times recorded on SRL), racers will have to replay the race.  We don’t think this will happen, but wanted to spell that out.

  • If your Speedrun.com name does not match your Challonge name, please contact the mods so we can assign the correct PB to you.

  • If your Twitch and/or SRL name does not match your Challonge name, please contact the mods so we can make sure we have the right stream for the restream.


  • SDA Knowledge Base   - Has boss strats, and general mechanics info
  • Hundo specific video tutorial to be added (hopefully)
  • In the mean time you can use KirbyMastah's Any% Tutorial for techniques and boss strats (with the notable exception being Nettori, you can just spam missiles the entire time). Then watch JRP's 100% WR for the deviations from any%.
  • You can refer to Kahdoom's Sector 6 Baby Strats if you are not comfortable with some of the more difficult strats.

***Submit your PB here  for seeding!***

If you do not have a time on Speedrun.com, your best time on Speedrunslive.com will be used. If you do not have a time there either, you will be seeded at the bottom.
