I'm in the first 70% of the passage: it seems not very difficult. I, too, dying on Ridley 71 times: why am I doing this?

Basically: Beat Mother Brain Flawlessly.. besides her Laser Brain Attack all her other moves are easy to avoid.. Think what's annoying is trying to get to her and keeping all your health in that laser room b4 her.

Ridley was very, VERY easy when compared to Mother Brain. Man, what a hard boss. Did it with 3 tanks (39 health). Crystal flash is very good just to avoid doing her room flawlessly. Either way, very rewarding cheevo!

But why use glitches? Then it doesn't sound as good as people who actually beat it.

I can save the game file or this cheevo is a one sit run?

I'm pretty sure you can save the game, yes, according to others saying they died a few times along the way...

You wiil die on the laser sequence of the mother brain, gravity suit takes 6 Tanks from the laser, you must be using varia suit to counter the laser taking only 3 Tank, just equip the varia when mother brain starts the laser animation.

MB:1. Do not waste super missiles on the path to MB, break her glass and backtrack to the missile recover, now save.2. The tube things and mother glass wont recover :)3. The path is always clear now.

If you wanna clear this more easily, you can still use the ''Murder Beam'' Glitch on Ridley. Which helps a lot.

You mean the VAR beam, right?

Var Beam Indeed ! :D

Muder beam and Var beam is the same, so yes, but it is a bit tricky to find the exact moment to glitch ridley, but it sure makes it a lot easier

I made it. Not so hard. Ridley is very simple with murder beam. Mother Brain is very hard just to get to there without being hit, but, as soon as i take out the gates and the glass and came back to save, it becomes easy. Let's beat until 2:00 =/

Geez, what an achievement. Speed runners have more health than this.Take maikonstrife's advice on Mother Brain and clear the Zebitites and Mother Brain's surrounding glass. Circle back for energy and missiles, save and start your attempts.

Crystal flash immediately when Mother Brain stands, murder beam her in the face, fire super rockets and don't lose 100 health or it's all over.

This biggest problems of this cheevo is Ridley and Mother Brain. Basically, if you want it the easy way, use Murder\VAR Beam on Ridley. As for Mother Brain, follow "maiksonstrife" great advice (thank you maikson, btw), just break all the red things and Mother Brain glass and return to recharge your missiles, recover life and save.
