True Completion, also known as True 100%, combines 100% and 100% Map Completion with the goal to collect every item and map tile in the game, while also eliminating every boss and mini-boss. The animals are also saved, making it one of the only categories where saving the animals is mandatory.

The full list of rules from the SRC page:

You must...
...aquire 100% items.
...clear 100% of the map tiles.
...save the animals.
...defeat Ceres Ridley.
...open all non-blue door shells at least once.
...activate all map stations.
...destroy all Zebetites.

Previous versions of the ruleset involved a subset of these rules, but this set was settled on because it contains all objectives tracked by the game. Although putting 100 shots into Ceres Ridley does not set a permanent flag, it does change the cutscene. All other required objectives are tracked in the game's RAM.

The current world record route is based on the Map Completion route by Sweetnumb, with a few minor adjustments.
