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 Galactic Convicts (Prisoners) [5 per level])

3. 100 % FASTEST TIME (aka Speed Run) The cut off for this is 1 Hour 5 Minutes. I did it in 50:59 without a guide on my first run. I recommend learning where the Galactic Convicts 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 Galactic Convicts needed) The cut off for this is 50 minutes. I did a 100% run in 50:59 without a guide on my first playthrough. I did probably have a few sections I could do a little faster, but this one even more so than other modes, there is little room for error.


Included in these spoiler tags are my 100% run of 50:59 breakdowns. So you can see if you're ahead or behind my 50:59 pace. You'll need to knock a full 1 minute off my pace in order to do all 4 win screens in one run. After each time you save, you can back out to main menu and look at your save file to see your current run time rounded to nearest minute.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

-For bosses in general you're going to want to make sure you have the max power up. This gives you a spread shot which does good damage. This will allow you to take down the Mermaid in seconds, Ammo Baron pretty easily, Dual Barons very easily and Risky Boots pretty easily with just the 2nd stage of power up (although 3rd can't hurt). The only bosses the power up won't matter are Stages 1 & 3.

-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!!

-If you still struggle for 50 minutes time, I recommend you do a 100% playthrough Speed Run followed by a Speed Run where you skip the Galactic Convicts. 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.
