Gravity Clip

When running through, care must be taken not to clip through the Gravity Suit pickup, otherwise you will need to go all the way back through the Attic and Bowling Alley to pick it up.

This seems to happen because there are ten frames between when the "item holder" disappears before it gets replaced by the item itself, and this is also the approximate time that it takes Samus to run through that space without Speed Booster. So it's very possible that this is frame-perfect in Phantoon-first categories.
