This page contains the various speedrun categories run in New Super Mario Bros DS. Click each one for information.


Any% is a reference to all categories outside of 100%. When mentioned as Any% without any other restrictions, the Any% with warps is the default. This is the fastest method to complete the game.

NOTE: When comparing the loading times of all three consoles (for Any%), DS is the slowest. Emulator is 21 seconds faster than DS, and Wii U VC is 35 seconds faster than DS.


Requires completion of the game, without the use of cannons. Secret exits are allowed.
