If you can’t make out, Zack ‘Zallard1’ Allard isn’t taking things all that seriously, seeming warming the protagonist up for a Cossack dance routine which is what the college boy, no doubt, hurries off to perform at the Homecoming halftime show after the credits are through. Although Zallard is best-known for doling out merciless coups de grâce inside whatever boxing rings he’s still admitted to (audiences get jaded), on his off days he may be spotted excising a handful of not-strictly-vital tissues, roundabout 5 seconds’ worth, off his other records and catgutting together a 0:13:46 that somehow still kicks and screams (signs of life!). Don’t be fooled, though, because such Sunday efforts, while not completely unheard-of, really are the exceptions that prove the rule all the harder. Here’s what he normally gets down to:
- Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! – Piston Honda II down 2.52 to 0:41.48 and Super Macho Man down 2.00 to 0:46.48 (table time 0:13:57.78)
- Super Punch-Out!! – Single-segment down 5.82 into 0:02:43.37
- Punch-Out!! (Wii) – Super Macho Man II down 0.27 to 1:09.14 (table time 0:19:49.65)
But wait! If you just so knew what the exact SDA Individual Levels time for the Wii game was, a bewildered cry may be about to escape your lips: “Where did another 0.94 seconds go? I want answers. goddammit!” Can you hear a mischievous chuckle from within the challengers’ loge (shut up I know how boxing matches work okay?!) emanating from the exercised bellows of a defiant, lithe silhouette? “Those features… that voice… no, not a clue who it is.” Well, it’s someone whose name doubles as their preferred level of precision in planning and execution of fights: ‘FrameByFrame’. That’s who. Here’s something to help you remember:
- Bear Hugger down 0.18 to 0:26.70 and Bald Bull II down 0.66 to 0:43.89 (table time still 0:19:49.65)
Things are heating up! How many more records are up for grabs until they’re all indistinguishable from their TAS counterparts? Hmm… I should advertise our spiritually linked sister site for a change, in case someone’s too gnu-bee to know about TASing yet.
*Apparently, censorship was applied when porting to home consoles.
