Yes, a cucco riding the ground.
I found some nice timesavers. I also found a very cool (but useless) trick in the Echoing Caves.



EDIT: A useless trick in Sanctuary of Stone and Fire:



EDIT2: I came close to finding a good timesaver in the Echoing Caves, but it was not to be. I thought that if you could avoid the green lum in the area with the propellor platforms, you could death warp after getting the lums and go straight back to the beginning of the level, saving time. I found that if you look away from the green lum and walk backwards, you can get much closer to it without collecting it, so you can get the lums in the room. Unfortunately, there's an invisible checkpoint in the area that seems impossible to avoid. Even if you avoid the green lum, you will still respawn in the same area. =(
Manocheese, I was trying the same with swimming clip and yes - there is an invisible checkpoint...

Huge progress today! I had a great run attempt. Pretty much all the tricks went perfectly and there were no unintentional deaths. Unfortunately, I made a big mistake in Sanctuary of Rock and Lava. In the spinning platform room, I looked at the lums from the cage to make them come toward me, but only two out of three came. I didn't notice I was missing a lum until I finished the level and the total said 49/50. However, I kept going just to see what time I would get. The final time:

2:29:58

A great milestone for the 999-lum category. =P Now, I just have to do the same thing without missing any lums. The run probably had 45+ seconds of mistakes, so with a cleaner run and the Water and Ice door clip, even sub-2:29 would be possible. I don't think I'll try for that, though.

It is to say: "The game tells you to go f*ck yourself". Cry Thats why I usually do that section 1-2s slower to make sure that I got all those lums.
Grats on time, I wish I was able to do runs with 0 unintentional deaths (my minimum (in any%) was 1 up to now)...

I found a way to skip the miniboss fight in the Precipice:



I don't think this would save time, though.

EDIT: Looks like ThatGermanGuitarDude already found this trick:

I did a 2:30:43 just now. The time was surprisingly low given that I had six deaths totalling about 90-100 seconds of time loss. Outside of the deaths, I'd say the run was perhaps a little cleaner than my 2:29:58 999-lum run. In any case, sub-2:30 is definitely within reach. Sub-2:29 is still tough, but possible.
You should easily get it soon. GL
I don't know, when I improve my PB - no willingness for now...

Not much progress lately, though I did do a 2:30:35 (8 seconds faster than my previous best). Here's a video of some useless tricks:

2:30:23

This could've been the one... But I had a pair of ugly deaths in the Jano fight, costing me 50 seconds. Aside from that, there was a 15-second death in Sanctuary of Stone and Fire and a few other 10-second mistakes. I've been doing a lot of runs in the 2:30-2:31 range lately. Hopefully I can get this done pretty soon.

EDIT: 2:30:04. So close... Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

EDIT2: Just did my first ever deathless 100% run (not counting intentional deaths). Sadly, some of the tricks went really slowly, and the time was 2:31:09.
