The category "No Item Manipulation, No Wrong Warp" (No IM/WW) aims to complete the game as quickly as possible without the use of any glitches that fall under item manipulation or wrong warp. The primary consequence of these glitches being banned is the need to complete the Shadow Temple and Spirit Temple. Obtaining the medallions from these temples will trigger the light arrow cutscene (LACS), after which one can progress to the end of the game.
There are a number of different routes for this category, includ: N64 1.0 WESS Escape route, N64 bottle route, VC WESS Escape route, VC No WESS Escape route. It is thought that the N64 1.0 WESS Escape Route could be the fastest, but this is currently unclear.
