Intro

The fourth tournament, official name: SASUKE1999秋 (literally SASUKE 1999 Autumn), is statistically the most successful tournament in SASUKE history, in which many records were set.

Past finalists Yamamoto Shingo, Ōmori Akira, and Yamada Katsumi were given the three highest start positions (#98, #99, and #100, respectively), foreshadowing the numbering system of the SASUKE All-Stars. However, both Yamamoto and Ōmori were shockingly beaten in First Stage. Other competitors with history of strong performance, such as Yoshizaki Hiroaki and Kane Kosugi, were also given higher numbers.

First Stage saw an amazing 37 competitors cleared the stage, the most ever in SASUKE history. The previous record was 34, set in SASUKE 2. 16 years old Suzuka Ryūgo became the youngest competitor to clear First Stage, with the record still stand until today.

Spider Walk caused lots of problems in Second Stage, eliminating many competitors. In all, the stage claimed 26 competitors, another SASUKE record. Still, 11 competitors were able to make it to Third Stage, again another record in SASUKE history.

In Third Stage, two new obstacles were introduced: Arm Bike and Cliffhanger. The latter was proven to be a vicious addition in the stage, eliminating half of the competitors who attempted it, while Pipe Slider eliminating all but one competitor, Akiyama Kazuhiko, who was very close to failing after he almost fell into the muddy drink. Luckily, he managed to hold on to the red platform, hold himself up and clear Third Stage. All in all, yet another record was set, with 10 competitors failed in Third Stage.

In his only Final Stage appearance, Akiyama scaled the 15-metre Tsuna Nobori in just 24 seconds, becoming the first ever competitor to achieve Kanzenseiha in SASUKE. His Final Stage's time remaining was a record until SASUKE 27.
