Welcome to the 2019 Super Metroid Reverse Boss Order Tournament!

Reverse Boss Order is a Super Metroid category in which the 4 major bosses must be defeated in the reverse of intended order, ending with Mother Brain. Bosses must therefore be defeated in the order: Ridley, Draygon, Phantoon, Kraid, Mother Brain. This is a very challenging category which requires completion of Lower Norfair without Varia Suit, and completion of Maridia without Gravity Suit!

Runners of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in this tournament. This tournament will be a Best of 3 (Bo3) and a Single Elimination. Seeding into the bracket will be based off of SRL Race PB’s. Runners Race PBs will be pulled after Sign-Ups close and used to seed the bracket. We ask that participants participate in at least one RBO race in order to have a Race PB to be used for the tournament. Runners who do not have a Race PB at the end of the sign up period will simply be randomized at the bottom of the seeding.

Signups will close on July 9th with the tournament officially starting on July 13th.

To participate in this tournament it is required that you join the Discord server.  Before the tournament starts organizers will be confirming everyone's participation in the tournament in the Discord server. The Discord server is also where you can sign up to commentate, track and restream races, more information on this will be posted closer to the tournament start date. A match submission form along with a spreadsheet will also be made available closer to the start date of the tournament.


Players will use SpeedRunsLive to time and record their races. The final time listed on SRL will be the official time for the match. Races will use standard SRL rules as well as the following:

  • All players are required to stream their matches.

  • All files should start at 0:00 with the intro sequence completed so play begins on Ceres station.

  • Players may use cartridge, flashcart, Super NT, SNES Classic console or an emulator (except SNES9x 1.43 or below and ZSNES, which are banned).

  • The category raced will be RBO (Reverse Boss Order)  [no major glitches]. This means anything that takes the player OOB is banned along with the spacetime beam, GT Code and underflowing ammo. If you an unsure what is considered a major glitch please ask a tournament organizer.

  • Bosses must be defeated in the order Ridley, Draygon, Phantoon, Kraid, Mother Brain. Any runs where this is not the case will not count for the tournament, and will count as a forfeit for the runner in question.
  • The time limit for each race will be 5 hours, however the restream may stop prematurely if one player has finished and there is another race waiting to take place. In this instance you may still continue to stream and finish the run and the final SRL time will still be used for the official race time.


Please do your best to communicate with your scheduled opponents and get matches completed in a timely manner in order to keep the tournament on schedule. One calendar month will be allowed for each round of the tournament. Any games which have not been completed by that time will be recorded as a forfeit, and average tournament race times will be used to decide a winner. Deadlines for each round can be found in the tournament schedule. Please schedule your matches 24 hours ahead of time in order for SpeedRunnersArena to see and schedule your matches. Any matches scheduled with less than 24 hours notice are unlikely to be restreamed.


Matches will be restreamed to one of the SpeedRunnersArena channels when possible along with commentary.

If you would like to be considered for commentary, tracking and/or restreaming, then please nickflash an organizer in Discord so they can give you the commentary role and details on how to sign up to commentate matches. Organizers reserve the right to remove people from the commentary role should their commentary be deemed inappropriate and/or offensive.

Each race that can be restreamed to SpeedRunnersArena will get a 3-4 hour block on the SpeedRunnersArena schedule. Depending on SpeedRunnersArena's availability and how full their calendar is this may be shortened or extended, however the 5 hour match limit will still apply regardless of restream length.


For further information about the tournament or for any questions you may have please contact an organizer via Discord, either in the tournament Discord server or via DM's. Your tournament organizers for this tournament are Jaychalke, Darkrid12, Swap_Space and Ddraig
