Speedrunning is one of the most demanding challenges any Kid Chameleon player could possibly undertake. It is basically an attempt to complete the entire game in the fastest possible time.

Speedrunning RulesEdit

Yes, speedrunning does rule! But I'm talking about the other rules.

  • For real-time speedruns (RTS), time starts when the title screen begins to fade out after selecting "Start One", and ends on the exact frame to which the player touches the flag on Plethora.
  • For tool-assisted speedruns (TAS), time begins at power on, and ends when the last input is made.
  • Any of the game's options, pausing, and restarting rounds are allowed.
  • The Infinite lives glitch is allowed.

Categories Edit

  • 4 Boss - You must defeat all four bosses for a run to be accepted in this category.
  • 100K Trip - You must take the 100K Trip for a run to be accepted in this category.
  • Maximum Levels - You must visit the maximum number of levels possible in one run, which is 91. This number includes dead-end elsewheres, which were ignored in TheRandomPie_IV's TAS.
  • Any% - The game can be completed through any means possible, including the Plethora cheat.

Real-Time Speedruns (RTA)Edit

Real-time speedruns are live runs of the game's original state - meaning there were no enhancements done to the run by emulator or video-editing. Only the current skills and knowledge of the player may be used in RTA. To see the leaderboard with all verified, video-proven records, visit Kid Chameleon on

Individual LevelsEdit

Listing all Individual Level records on this page or each level's wiki page would only create a huge amount of clutter, so please visit Kid Chameleon Individual Levels on to view those records.
