This run is unbeatable. Anyone who claims to beat this run or uploads an "improvement" is a liar and a FRAUD. You will be hearing from my lawyers buddy!
It's possible to die immediately when entering Lethal Lava Land by jumping into the painting just before Mario's HP Value decrements to 255. That's why I titled the video with "(Low HP)." The reason I went for an HP Value of 256 is because it is the lowest value possible that is obtainable which doesn't kill Mario. Due to how HP works, the health bar in the HUD is not a direct representation of how much health Mario really has. If I were to touch lava with a value above 256 (in increments of 10), it would require an extra frame (or several more) before activating the Bowser Death Screen transition. So, in order to load that faster, a lower HP value was required. See Pannenkoek's video on HP for more information. Pretty cool stuff!

You might not notice it but I actually use some wonky sign hitboxes in order to touch the lava as fast as I could. I have no idea how it works lol, but it ended up saving 4 frames from my first initial run.
Entering courses with "No HP" is possible, but not all of them as far as I know. I opted not to do any "No HP" runs because they're all similar. Enter the course, then die immediately. That's boring and lame. These extra thrilling action-packed 2 seconds are way more exciting! I might make more death speedruns in other courses for the meme lol.

This is a Tool-Assisted Speedrun/Superplay.
Don't know what that is?
