Demon's Souls Any% is a speedrun category in which the player tries to complete the game as fast as possible. There are no added restrictions on how the player completes the game, they must simply start a new character and trigger the credits as quickly as they can. Glitches, skips and sequence breaks are all allowed. Using other programs to affect the game or editing the game code is not allowed.

- Like all Demon's Souls speedruns the run time is recorded using the In-Game Timer. This means once the player has killed King Allant and triggered the credits, they need to switch to another character that has already finished 1-1 and visit the Pantheon at the top of the Nexus to see their final time.
- You may not edit your game in any way other than using a .DLL file to remove the logo screens. Some runners use texture packs which are generally allowed but it is best to run on a clean game. Some players also run with DSFix though changing the framerate changes the game in some ways so it is not allowed.
- You may kill as many or as few bosses as you want to finish the game.
- Glitches, skips and sequence breaks are all allowed. Third party tools or programs are not allowed.
