This was streamed months ago, still getting caught back up!
I am speed
@Colten Williams same
good luck =)
You arent that fast, its been 30 seconds
At least Bowser can now take a breath, he doesn't have to deal with a supersonic Mario coming his direction
The speed demon inside of Mario was removed
I would like a sonic that can be captured
@SX9 Elio Now it's just Mario.
@SX9 Elio terminal montage reference.
Speed runner mario??? O_o
Someone needs to mod this so that the arrows follow the any% speedrun route
Need separate arrows for cappy and mario since 2-player control runs are a thing. :P
that'll be so fun lol
Someone needs to make a mod where you die if you leave the path.
@That Awesome Guy that would be PAIN
9:58 The transition of Bowser's hat falling off and cappy getting off of Mario is so smooth.
I was gonna say the same thing
It's *so* smooth
I never noticed that
AYO THATS SO SICK
No joke, I would love a “intended design%” category in real speed running.
For this game I suppose that would involve physically touching every arrow
I think intended design, to be distinct enough from other categories that expect you to play the "canon" route of the game, could only be applied consistently to games with published strategy guides
@BoonsAPlenty, I don't mean it that deep. Just start to finish, not 100% either.
I think that's just glitchless Any% then tbh
@BoonsAPlenty yeah I sorta started to think that when I read your comment, kinda had a “oh wait a minute” moment lol.
Shigeru Miyamoto: Yes! This is exactly how you're supposed to play the game!
Wtf ur here too
Or maybe like 是的。他终于玩对了
*yes. He finally plays it right
Wasn't it Sakurai

15:14 - 22:15
This was my favorite section of the whole video, where he talks about his medical experiences, popsicles, the power puff girls, and spices, and each topic nicely transitions into the next one. And while talking this entire time, he goes through some of seaside and all of luncheon and ruined. It might be stupid that this is my favorite part, but it is.
It's not stupid mate, I liked it a lot too!
I love how he accidentally started to use speedrun paths without thinking
carrot is a spice!
I really wasn't paying attention to the gameplay during this part, just mostly looked at him and the chat to see what responses came to the convo and was surprised by the time it ended he was already in Bowser's kingdom
my favorite part was 0:00 to 26:35, but 26:36 to 26:37 wasnt it chief
My favorite part was at the festival, when Pauline sang "It's freedom like you never knew" while Ant was retracing his steps because he accidentally went off the path.
as free as the USA
Take a turn! Off the path!
@Superlolgal555 11:31 I think
man the transition from cloud to lost at 9:55 was smooooth
I was lookin for this comment...
@Faz Fireburns me too
@Faz Fireburns me three
@Faz Fireburns me five
I wasn't but yeah I agree it was a pretty smooth transition
I can feel the energy of a five year old being told to “sit still” emanating from his every move.
SmallAnt is the only person who can make playing a game normally as intended not normal.
Imagine thinking that nintendo didn't intend finding secret moons. They are called secret moons for a reason
First time I fought Mollusque-Lanceur I didn't know that he took damage from the Gushen, I thought the Gushen was just meant to remove the lava. So I beat him by uncapturing and groundpounding him every time the lava disappeared. It was pretty easy so I thought it was intended. My sheer horror at his refight in the mushroom kingdom made me realize I was wrong. Since it took place in the sky, I had no idea how I was expected to groundpound his head and survive.
Bro write this while paragraph, just for someone to say. “Lol” woow.
@Mason's House of Trick Shots This wasn’t necessary to say at all.
This is the equivalent to following all traffic laws and speed limits when bored as hell in GTA
^ I literally do this just to piss off people 😂
I used to do that unironically...
wait you're not supposed to obey those
That funny feeling
I just steal cars and drive maniacly
And when my car is broken I steal another one
Let’s all give some respect to the man who said Choking is not intended
Damage is intended but not recommended
Finaly a glitchless run 👏 thank you for restoring the integrity of speedrunning
I just realized if small ant didn’t tell his grandma his belly was hurting we wouldn’t have this brilliant streamer today
The best part of this run is Ant arguing with his chat about carrots
15:17 Fun fact: they renamed the Heimlich manoeuvre for the sole reason that the Heimlich family tried to copyright it, potentially charging medical services around the world exorbitant prices if they wanted to teach people first aid effectively.
"So this is the H- ... THE METHOD"
"That's so cool the arrow shifts" is the most telling sign that Ant was losing his mind during this run
@Iiesuu somewhere after 0:11
Alternative title: “Ant suffers at the hand of the blue arrow gods for 3 hours”
I love how he’s talking about veggies and spices while a dragon blasts mario in the face
He should really have waited for Cappy to tell him how to beat the bosses
Nintendo: makes one of the best platforming games in history
This guy: “the arrow shifts thats so cool!”
"Carrots aren't aromatic"
Carrots are part of the "Holy Trinity" of cooking aromatics.
read this aromantic a good five times before realising i’m an idiot
@That One Guy SAME
This could be a new catagory for speedrunning
*_Nintendo liked that_*
Smallant would be so bad at it
it's literally just glitchless
@ThatGuyThomas not necessarily since you have to get the moons and follow the path in the order Nintendo tells you.
I love how this run is faster than the first ever mario odyssey speedrun, lol
He cut some parts out
@jam23 Duh, but there's a timer in the corner
h knows how to play
you know, as a meme category i could see this having a smidge of potential
9:57 Holy shit that transition. It lined up so well it blew my mind.
Anyone else really like the transition at 9:58? Where bowsers hat pops off his head spinning and the next transitions is right where Cappy is.
I was looking for this comment
yea i kinda like it
I dunno why, but the fact that there is a path to help younger or struggling people is so cute and I don't know why.
It’s funny how it started with joking around with the “intended way” and ended with powdered carrot
But powwdered carrot is the best spice, why wouldnt we want to talk about it?
@Memerman eh I like powdered potato my friend
@CRUP i like powdered onions
@AmmarSP ohh ur one of those people hmmmm
Nah man bacon bits are the best spice.
This run is faster than my first ever any%. I’m not crying you’re crying.
I just realized that this is faster than some any% world record speedrun
For someone like Smallant this is probably like playing the game in slow motion. I'd never have the patience.
Smallant I just want you to know thag I’ve been arbitrarily avoiding super Mario Odyssey for years and arbitrarily decided to break that fast with this video. This was my first experience with supermario odyssey, speedrun or otherwise. Thank you for giving me such a wonderful first time.
Thank you smallant for taking this man’s marioginity
I love how he went from life threatening surgery to asking if carrots are spices
He answered the Sphinx’s riddle while already knowing the answer, that’s not what they intended, run doesn’t count
Morgan Jost I mean, it was a joke, but for the sake of argument- yeah, but he still answered the question without considering the question and thinking about the answer, as they intended!
Of course it is, he guessed it!
@Patroka so you are telling me that my concentration is part of the intended run? Nintendo intended the uestion to be easy sooooooo
22:02 I love how happy he is about the carrot spice dilemma being solved
Let's all thanks Ant's grandma for saving him 🙏🙏
18:44 “and I was like, popsicle”
He does this run faster than I can speed run Odyssey without help mode
Him walking into the lava or cactus is like when your parents would “if your friends jumped of a bridge would you?”
No one gonna talk about how clean that transition was at 9:58 ? Ok.
Oh i just realised
Right?? That was so clean
It was so clean 😫
i’m from australia, and i can tell you that we call popsicles different ways depending on their shape.
for example, if the popsicle is shaped like a pole or a stick, it’s called ice stick/pole. or if the popsicle is shaped like a rectangle, we call that ice block.
That edit between bowsers hat and cappy in lost was so smooth
Pov small any : Trying to do a normal assist run Ends up being a cooking show about spices at exactly 20:45
This is basically a anti speed run and the spice and popsicle rant was amazing
i’m embarrassed to say that my first speedrun of this game was about half an hour longer than this 😭
Mario: Is getting zapped to death by a dragon
SmallAnt: Ginger is a spice
It's a root
It's really not
@High Definition I mean it is but to each their own beliefs
@High Definition how is it not?
The transition from moon to lost will always be the spiciest
Props to the guy who just put the whole pacer test in chat. Abosulute legend
Loved the stories during the run. Can't believe your appendix was going to explode,(according to the doctors) that just seems random...
chat was in denial the entire time smallant was having a revelation about spices and i love it
I didn’t know the route for my first speed run and I’m ashamed to admit that ant did it faster than me
I’m upset that the title wasn’t: “Beating Mario odyssey as nintended”
@Edgar Sin Titulo ikr 😞
Papasea makes those
He makes a joke about "Nintended" though
Not following the lines is like in school when you run down the staircase and the teacher tells you to go back and walk down.
@Crapply drawn odish yup
Imagine walking into the stream and hearing: "So the stick that goes into, is called "The Jingler""
I'd love to see a mod that totals a score at the end to show you how much you trailed off the path
You should do a race with one of your friends to see who could get the most multi moons
idc if this video was made 2 years ago from now but this video is still a master piece
Alternate title: Man rants about popsicles and spices while playing Mario Odyssey in the background.
But just during Luncheon mostly
...for 5 minutes
I could really relate to that appendicitis story, I had a similar thing happen to me. My parents were having dinner somewhere and my grandpa was looking after me and my siblings. My grandpa is a doctor so he instantly recognised it and called my parents. My dad rushed me to the hospital and they said if we arrived like 30 minutes later I would've died.
9:58 the transition between bowsers hat and cappy was so clean
"Damage is intended, just not recommended."
Beautiful. Ant doesn't always realize when he makes poetry.
I like how this run is such a meme that he just stops to ask Siri what spices are.
“We’re half an hour in and we’ve only done Sand Kingdom” welcome to my pace
Alternative title: "Speedrunner tortures himself doing an awfully slow run"
Also see: Man actively subjects himself to a horrible day for a petty bit
Just like that time when Crow had to play BotW normally
can we take a moment to appreciate the smooth editing at 9:58 the perfect movement between bowser's hat and cappy, thanks
You did a whole speed run on playing the game completely normally and it’s faster than my first speed run lol
If someone gave me a pound for every time he said “intended” I would be a millionaire
Hey Ant, just need to let you know, months later now, that you will need to do this run again for validation. You skipped an intended ledge/platform with arrows in luncheon kingdom. That was not Nintended.
This run made me realize that this game was literally created with unintentional paths in mind. That's awesome. Flexibility in a game is rad.
9:58 idk if this was intended but omg that transition from bowsers hat falling off of mario to cappy in lost kingdom was just about perfect
I just noticed and damn smooth
Yoooo wth I didn't know what you meant until I saw it OMGG PERFECTION
Really enjoyed this video, reminds me of the "beating pokemon how Nintendo intended it"
I love how he lets us listen to the random conversations he has with the chat
i'm embarrassed to say that it took me 2 playthroughs of this game to realize i could do the dive throw jump trick. granted i hadn't played 3d mario since galaxy came out, so i was VERY rusty.
this makes me feel a lot better about my 1:46:33 any% PB of SMO
Bowser: *sends a gigantic electric dragon to kill Mario*
SmallAnt: "Yes!!! Carrot is a spice!!! Wikipedia said Ii!!!".
*Speedrunning Mario Odyssey but you aren't allowed to speedrun and it's just SmallAnt telling stories and nonsense*
SMO speedrun but carrots are a spice
He has the patience to do the nut jump, but God forbid he watches a 10 second cutscene
I love how Smallant turns into Woody Allen at 14 seconds in the video.
I love the fact that while a giant thunder dragon roars ants talking about carrot powder
This is the most sarcastic speed run in history.
4:52 “Damage is intended, but not recommended.” Why is that such a good quote though-
If Nintendo gave this man a dollar for every arrow he touched, this man would be rich.
The amount of concealed pain in this run made it grand~
The only time I've actually played Mario Odyssey I followed the arrows precisely like this. I also used Toad for like 90% of the moons.
This is pain in its final form, especially for speedrunners
Funny and entertaining how he gets bored and starts talking about carrots being spices 😆
Imagine Intended% becomes a cathegory.
Too many semantics. Arrow% could probably be a thing though.
@Neutral Dalek And then we'll have the great category split, when Arrow% and Arrow + Cutscene % each get a separate leaderboard
It's called no major glitches/glitchless. Because outside of glitches most stuff is intended, like using clever movement to get to the end of lake kingdom fast is totally intended, and plenty of other tech not used here is intended, generally proved by the fact it's not patched.
@Taylor if it was actually intended, there would clearly be arrows pointing it out.
@halinn Intended and spelled out in glowing neon letters are not the same thing. The game doesn't directly tell you you can throw cappy mid-air even after bouncing on him to extend your airtime. Does that mean that's unintended? No, of course it's intended, it's just not spelled out.
Assist mode isn't "The way you are meant to play", assist mode is "This way is safe and easy and doesn't ask you to do more complex things you might not be capable of", meant for kids, people with low reaction times or motor issues, that kind of thing.
This must have been the hardest challenge yet.
The bosses are easier for him then any other part of the game. I wonder how they'd feel if they new that.
Imagine if someone actually did this because they thought that was how you were supposed to do it…
What do you do all day?
Smallant: “I became friends with an arrow.”
HOW COULD YOU MISS SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY
26 minutes of speedrunner passiv-agressivly trashtalking people who prefer glitchless runs
I don't think he's ragging on people who prefer glitchless runs, just the ones who are obnoxious about glitchless being the only real way to speedrun.
th lttr aftr d is for waklings
@Rikrobat Yeah, this isn't a shot at glitchless. If it were, he would have done 100% since those frequently disallow glitches.
This is Malicious Compliance with the people who made the "You're a beta male, Sonic" meme possible.
@Human Being what
I don't speedrun myself when i play a game i always go intended. I like the game to deliver the experience the developers intended. I also typically only play a game once, a few if its something i really really love (ocarina, majora's mask, bioshock) ya know the typical classics. But! Speedruns are still great!
They are the culmination of a deeper love of a game. These guys play these games over and over and over and over discovering every little secret, every hidden gem, every glitch and quirk. Then find a way to take all these quirks etc. to find a line through the game so tight and so perfect that no form of casual gameplay could ever produce a time or result in the same galaxy.
And let me tell you people, seeing it happen? Well that's just fucking beauty incarnate.
Still competed the game quicker than the first ever wr
This is technically not fully intended since the "dive" move was expected for you to only use in moon and after. (not joking there is a sign in moon that tells you how to dive as if you were gonna play the whole game with no dives)
