Any%

From Speed Souls - A Dark Souls Speedrunning Wiki

Bloodborne Any% is a speedrun category in which the player tries to complete the game as fast as possible. There are no added restrictions on how the player completes the game, they must simply start a new character and trigger the end credits as quickly as they can. Glitches, skips and sequence breaks are all allowed. Using other programs to affect the game or editing the game code is not allowed.

This category is run either on the 1.00 disc version or the 1.01 digital version as it allows you to dupe items by using an additional character.

The world record is 20:48 IGT by maruyo (YouTube). The leaderboards for this category are available here.

  • You may not edit your game in any way, shape or form.
  • You may kill as many or as few bosses as you want before finishing the game.
  • You may not use savefiles.
  • Glitches, skips and sequence breaks are all allowed.
