  • Breaking the tube to Maridia and leaving the room on the same frame
  • spark bonking wall at varia (suit) touch
  • walking into solid object (solid or frozen enemy or wall) in x-mode
  • ballbounce and just before 2nd ball landing menu is entered to switch springball
  • rt refill trigger in last frame before pause menu
  • cf trigger in front facing standing pose at varia or grav animation
  • transitioning while all 32 sprite slots are occupied (like at shaktool entering the left door fast after killing shaktool with wave plasma; or with bombing ki hunters for brown collision sprites)
  • firing an uncharged murder beam shot
  • firing a spazer+plasma shot
  • firing Murder beam not horizontally leftwards
  • firing a charged wave+spazer+plasma shot
