Complete the game as fast as possible while playing on Operative difficulty. Timing starts from the moment you gain control on Bond at the beginning of "The Exchange" and ends when "Mission complete" appears at the end of "Equinox". One thing worth noting is that you are not required to play Paris Prelude since it is not required to beat the game. Due to the nature of Any% in speedrunning, all forms of glitches and tricks are allowed throughout the course of the game. The only requirement for this category is that you complete every level and reach the "Mission complete" screen on Equinox.
The rules for 00 Agent are exactly the same as Any%, except you are required to play on 00 Agent difficulty instead of Operative difficulty.

Complete the game on 00 Agent difficulty as fast as possible while earning a platinum medal on every level. Timing starts when you gain control of Bond at the beginning of the first level (since you can choose to play Paris Prelude or The Exchange first) and ends when "Mission Complete" appears at the end of "Equinox". If for some reason your run ends on a level besides Equinox, timing ends when "Mission Complete" or the results screen appears at the end of the level, whichever happens first.
It is recommended that you create a new save file in your video and show it at the end of the run when you have all the platinum medals.
To get a platinum medal, you must complete a level with a score of 1,000,000 points or more.
Complete the game as fast as possible while playing on operative difficulty. The PC version has it's own category since it is a completely separate game than the console version. Timer starts on selecting difficulty and ends on pressing the final button in "Re-entry".
The following rules apply to all categories:
- Launching the game (through disc or otherwise) from USB loaders or homebrew applications such as Nintendont is banned, as it makes the game run faster than normal.
- All forms of emulators are allowed. If you want to play on emulator, it is recommended that you use Dolphin 5.0 since its loading times are very accurate to the gamecube console. Playstation 2 emulators are allowed but not recommended since the emulation is very innacurate.
- A video is required for your time to be accepted on the Leaderboard
