Oh, I never mentioned that. At first I was just doing another typical swordless run, but then I decided to get all I can without a sword as well. I have the Kokiri's Emerald because if you get Zelda's Letter before getting a sword, Mido won't be blocking your way to the Deku Tree anymore.

It's funny because Dark Link and the double Stalfos mid-boss are easier to beat as a kid swordless than as an adult swordless. You have Deku Sticks as a kid, which when used in a jumpslash are as strong as the Master Sword. You don't have those as an adult. Also, the Boomerang freezes Dark Link, making it basically impossible to lose against him.
The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

Sorry for the double post, but here's an example of a tougher Megaflip I did in my low % run.

I beat GIRP.

The Potato was delicious.

I'm currently in the middle of a Squirt Nozzle-less Super Mario Sunshine run. You wouldn't believe how annoying it was to take down Shadow Mario in Gelato Beach with just the Turbo Nozzle.

Sorry for the double post, but I've found a way to shoot a little water a significant distance forwards or backwards with the Hover Nozzle. By using that technique, I managed to get rid of one obstacle in my run: flipping all the ? panels in the Hotel Delfino Casino. It took about an hour, but I think it was well worth it.

Well, I managed to do something cool! Check this out:



I got in Sirena Beach without eating the pineapple on top of the pipe! I used Yoshi to do this, but it'd be great if I found a way to get in with only Mario.

Would it have any applications in speed running?

Even if not, though, it's a neat trick.

I doubt it would, unfortunately. If the pineapple disappeared after completing the first Episode and I found a way to get in with just Mario, I can save some time and complete a few Episodes in Sirena Beach before getting Yoshi. However, I think this is suitable for a "low%" run, where the objective is to complete the game by doing the bare minimum.

Not that there's any reward for doing more than the bare minimum in Sunshine

Nice job.  But I've already started another run, so I might get a lower time yet.
