- Beat the game from a new file (not a NG+ "Start from the beginning" file)
- Must be single segment. You may not load a save during the run, but using Golden Gates is allowed.
- Runs are timed by in-game time, as shown on the final results screen after defeating Yami.
Alternatively, you can follow this intermediate route which includes City Checkpoint Skip, but not Fire Tablet Skip: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YTM-V4ojxT7O6cBQTIBTGbo9dLk54xb0ML_dfB4CAlM/edit?usp=sharing
For those not experienced in Okami speedrunning, it is recommended to start by learning the NG Any% Beginners' Route.
