**THIS SOLUTION IS FOR ORIGINAL VERSION**. They nerfed (lowered) times for the Ultimate Edition. I looked at the comments of people claiming different times at their profiles and theyve only played the Ultimate Edition. Please ignore them so that you dont confuse yourself.

As per usual with Shantae games there are four unique win screens. You'll get one just for beating the game. You don't have to get all four in one playthrough. They carry over between save files as well. The four win screens are:

1. Game Complete (Just Beat the Game).

2. 100 % (Collect all Dream Squids [3 per level])

3. 100 % FASTEST TIME (aka Speed Run) The cut off for this is probably around 1 Hour 45 Minutes. I did it in 1:28:20 without a guide. I recommend learning where the Dream Squids are in each level, not saving, then reload and replaying it and doing it flawlessly. Then save. Any time you fail make sure to go to main menu to load and not continue. Continue will add your fail time onto your total.

4. FASTEST TIME (aka Speed Run, no Dream Squids needed) The cut off for this is 1 Hour 20 Minutes. I did a run in 1:28:20 and did not get it. I did a run in 1:01:10 and did get it. Fastest times I've seen for 100% Speed Runs are 1 Hour 18 Minutes, so it is possible to do all four screens in one run, which leaves next to no room for error (~2 minutes).

I had a pretty good run with very few mistakes and only managed 01:28:20 for 100% and only 3 screens. Maybe you've got more skills than I do, but this will most likely take 2 playthroughs to get all win screens.

I recommend you do a 100% playthrough Speed Run followed by a Speed Run. Make sure to start a new save file as continuing a previous save file from the base game or first DLC will add to your total time. Also when going for speed runs skip all dialogue as fast as possible by mashing the cn_A. According to good Super man some scenes allow you to skip a series of dialogue with cn_start, so try that first and then if it doesn't skip mash that cn_A!!
