Though it should be noted that at 1:50, the Temple Run for "The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland" was just three seconds longer than that of the Mask of Shaka Zulu - and the path to the Horn included the Tomb of the Headless Kings and the Jester's Court, usually huge time sinks.note Coincidentally, the winners in both episodes were the Red Jaguars.
"The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus". The girl going first signals her partner where the spare half-pendant was going to be and the boy uses the dog leash as a lasso to grab the rope and swing his way onto the other side. More importantly, the team had a whole and half-pendant; the girl could've taken the pendant but she gave it up so her partner could retrieve it. As one comment put it, "Logic = Fuckin' Victory".
Despite only winning 3 of their runs, the Purple Parrots were really awesome. Tipping vases got you down? How about you punch and smash them with your bare hands to get your hands on a milk bucket.
Their first victory at "Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid" can only be described as 'Purple Parrot Pwnage'. They were the first to cross the moat, the first to pass the steps of knowledge, got both medals in the temple games and scored the artifact in record time. It also had an epic moment in the Jester's Court; the boy faces forward and bashes his head on one of the buttons instead of facing it like any normal person would do.
In "Milk Bucket of Freydis" our runner is a Purple Parrot little girl named Tarrah who solos the entire Temple Run with one second to spare. One cool moment of hers is instead of tipping the vases or raising them over her head in the King's Storeroom, she punches and slams them between her hands. She wants to be a cop, indeed.
The third and final victory for the Parrots was "The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen". The first runner, TJ, zipped through at least half of the path until reaching the Dark Forest. His partner, Randy (a girl), follows it up with style, pushing a panel to get to the room of the Secret Password, grab the item and traverse through the other remaining rooms with five seconds to spare.
The best part of all of these victories? All of them had less then ten seconds to go.
In the same vein as Tarrah of the Purple Parrots, we have Missy of the Blue Barracudas in "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor" solo-running through the Temple with only a pendant on her. She had to use the pendant but successfully dodged the other guards to retrieve the pillow.
"Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress" deserves a special mention. Not only was this the pilot episode, but the temple run was a real nail-biter. But the Green Monkeys get the Headdress with only 27 seconds left on the clock and get out with one second remaining.
The Belly Button of Buddha may be boring but The Blue Barracudas dominated that episode. They was first in the moat and the steps of knowledge. In the temple games, they won two pendants in the temple games. In the temple games, Jennifer was able to do the run herself. This is also one of two solo runs that was done with two whole pendants.
