**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!!
WhiterValkyrie I had the 4 screens in one run in 1h18 !

EmoBabyMemes187 I can confirm that the 100 percent speedrun achievement gives you more than 1:30. i finished it in 1:33 and still got the screen

FNSUITE GHOST Thanks guys! I plan on killing time and saving again every few minutes to experiment with what the exact cut offs are but you're saving me time! laugh

good Super man For dialogue you can just hit start and it skips all the dialogue and puts you in a black screen for 2 seconds. It saves a lot more time than just mashing A

FNSUITE GHOST Does that work on all scenes ? I tried it in the end post boss fight and it didn't work
Posted by FNSUITE GHOST on 15 Dec 17 at 04:04
good Super man Only scene it doesn't work on is the final one after you defeat nega shantae

good Super man Other than that only other scenes I don't think it doesn't work with is when a boss goes into another form like squid barron when hypno barren joins in

FNSUITE GHOST Ok good to know , I definitely tried it a few times throughout and didn't recall it working . I must have been doing it during the scenes you mentioned smile I'm lucky like that! Added your tip. Thanks for feedback !

good Super man No problem I'm currently working on my any % run since my 100% run was 1:20:28

HUN playmore I got all four win screens in a 100% run with 1:18:28
Posted by HUN playmore on 29 Dec 17 at 22:27
Awoo All win screens at once with a 1:04:12, and that included a bit of revisiting a stage to refill magic for the retarded Dual Barons fight. Very lenient time if you don't fuck around.

ibh82 First run, got 1:40:32; received 3/4 screens so 1:45:00 is most likely correct for 100% speed run.
