** Its predecessor has been done in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLHh0aJ8rkk under ''twelve'' minutes]] thanks to a door/wall bypassing glitch discovered very recently.

* ''[[VideoGame/SystemShock System Shock 2]]'' is a challenging sci-fi first-person shooter where resources often run scarce, especially on the [[HarderThanHard Impossible]] difficulty. Surviving to the end requires careful inventory and skills management and a typical playthrough will run over ten hours. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRC4ulWn-ZE Or you can memorize the game layout, take advantage of speed-boosting buffs and blaze through it in less than fifteen minutes]].

** [=TAS=]es are now Exaggerating this trope with Arbitrary Code Execution (Also called [[FunWithAcronyms ACE]]) runs which take control of the game entirely, allowing anything to be programmed over the game code.

* Non–videogame example: In the film ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow'', Cage is stuck looping the same day over and over again - an invasion of an alien-defended Normandy beach. Over his many deaths, he eventually finds a speed run path to get off the beach to attack behind enemy lines.



* Yet another non-videogame example: running races, either in track, cross country, or on your own. In order to achieve the fastest times possible, runners need to hone their body and maintain their habits, diets, and exercise so they can have anywhere from their ten seconds (for a 100M/110 yds dash) to their two hours (for a marathon) of glory. Track teams often record the best times for the events they run, with teams generally becoming better overall as a result of higher and higher records being set and pushed.
