Strat list

From Yoshi's Island Speedrunning Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This page serves as a list of fast/updated strats. Most of these are from 2017 (the poahr era) but some are also old and have simply been put to the side for the longest and are now slowly finding their way into runs. After the first set of levels there is a second list that goes over all the strats poahr does (first person to ever get a 141 in Warpless). Some of these were invented by him, some he just picked up from other runners or ILs. But these are generally very fast strats and not advised to be learnt by beginners. The poahr strat 101 was created before the AGDQ 2018 to prepare for commentary so it reads a little bit odd, too lazy to fix that at the moment. The first list also isn't completely up2date (it's from April 2017) and is missing some new strats + videos.

poahr strats 101

1-1 - he might go for the shy guy spit perfect jump strat (not sure due to race, but just attempting doesn't really lose time so he probably will attempt it)

1-2 - //

1-3 - //

1-4 - he takes the top path in the first room + Double Key Tongue

1-5 - //

1-6 - tonguing stilt shy guy in the last cave room instead of spitting a lantern guy (though again, since race I don't know)

1-7 - //

1-8 - he might go for fast salvo kill

2-1 - he does this crazy shell jump strat where he skips going down the first pipe (he went for it in WR but didn't get it)

2-2 - shy guy spit + perfect flutter strat at the beginning of second room

2-3 - just some minor optimizations with how he grabs the baby mario star

2-4 - //

2-5 - #coinless

2-6 - letting go of down when doing the ground pound in the beginning to save a little bit of time there

2-7 - //

2-8 - he uses all eggs to shot the pot and gets an egg before the cookie in a "tricky way" (jump against egg block and up-tongue to make it fly right)

3-1 - maybe the new brook strat? + #coinless

3-2 - //

3-3 - HELI SKIP and camera manip during sub to skip the spinning spikes

3-4 - super optimized star route to potentially get 30 stars before the last save ring (he also uses the red egg that you bring from 3-3 for this too) + maybe #coinless

3-5 - #coinless

3-6 - more optimized bottom route where he jumps on rat way earlier than we used to - he also goes for a cool baxter here

3-7 - //

3-8 - does not really stop in second room to grab 3 (or 4?) eggs, but instead gets them fast (jump against egg block + uptongue) and then grabs one of the spike-thingies the green piranhas spit out where you also jump over the save ring (tricky) + water boost in third room

4-1 - he might go for baby mario skip

4-2 - he does a shot at the beginning that no one else does (barely faster I think)

4-3 - shell jump at the beginning + double left/right avoidance in last room + he goes for a baxter here to get a red egg going into 4-4

4-4 - uses the red egg baxtered from 4-3 to get 2 more stars + goes for triple (i think everyone in the race does?... maybe not yamayuu) + uses egg to hit the cloud in bottom-left room

4-5 - Shell jump at the end

4-6 - Shell jump in the first room to skip one of the bouncing arrows

4-7 - he does super optimized (& scary) platform boosts in the last room + chicken baxter obviously

4-8 - Arne's strat to get past the falling spike faster (the one where you run into the shell)

5-1 - //

5-2 - //

5-3 - //

5-4 - optimized star route (that I popularized :p)

5-5 - Heli Skip + Shy Guy Switch Jump thingy at the end

5-6 - //

5-7 - //

5-8 - //

6-1 - //

6-2 - //

6-3 - he DOESN'T go for any of the pole jumps iirc (I think none of the runners are)

6-5 - the new rock boost strat by turtle + #coinless (YES!!!)

6-6 - //

6-7 - //

6-8 - //
