    Since there Isn't a proper guide up yet, for now I'll just leave a few tips.

    Firstly, the required times are:
    Any% - 3 hours
    100% - 4 hours

    Play on Hero mode (unlocked after beating the game) this gives you all base transformations from the start. This way you can speed through most stages using the Harpy form.

    Copy your save into another slot before entering Risky's Hideout.

    After beating the any% time, reload the copied save and backtrack for all additional items.
    You should have plenty of time for this (took me just under an hour for the backtracking).

    Make sure to use every transformation atleast once, otherwise you wont reach 100%.

    Additionally, going for some of the easier to reach Heart Containers on the Any% part may save some pain with some of the trickier bosses.

    If you find yourself stuck for money, use the Gem Jug transformation in the Bath House with Max Attract for infinite gems, it takes about 10 to 15 mins to reach 999 Gems. You may need to do this if like me you skip most of the stages with the Harpy form the first time through.

    Lastly, pausing the game (entering the item menu) pauses the timer.

    Bucko13bDone it twice now and neither speed run will unlock. Did something change?

    Davvvide 3I just wanted to add that there is a glitch involving the gemjug, blobfish and Sophia III forms.
    They are required for the achievement, but if you have one of them equipped when you collect the last item for 100% completion the achievement may glitch and not unlock... That's what happened to me.
    So just pay attention and give them back to the snake merchant before reaching 100% completion.
