Hello and welcome to Deer Tier! The aim of this site is to showcase the best of the best in the Super Metroid speedrunning community. Submit your records and see how you stack up against your fellow speedrunners!

If you wish to play any category on emulator, higan is the recommended emulator to use. Times should also follow SpeedRunsLive conventions. To paraphrase the rules, this means:

  • All files ... should start at 0:00 with the intro sequence completed so play begins in the Ceres station.
  • SNES9x 1.43 and ZSNES are banned.
  • Absolutely no emulator functions, such as savestates or speedups. No turbo-fire functions are allowed. No external devices such as game genie or gameshark. No scripts unless specifically allowed.
  • Save the critters at your own discretion.

In addition, the leaderboards operate on the honour system. Please do not attempt to pass off fake records as your own. If any times look suspicious, they may be removed. The best way to establish credibility is to hang out and race with the SRL Super Metroid community. A more detailed ruleset can be found here. With that said, enjoy the competition! Will you ascend to Deer Tier?
