In Super Mario Sunshine, it is possible to die while collecting a shine. Should you do it? No. If you collect the shine, then die, you'll increment the Shine Counter. If you die, then collect the shine, you just die. "That means you cancel the Shine Get animation, and ends the scene early... right?" Nope, it takes just as long as the standard Shine Get animation. So to conclude, an A press isn't as black and white as you think and dying doesn't help you cancel the Shine Get animation. Follow for more 0x A Press videos. No joke though, if you plan to speedrun Super Mario Sunshine, don't try to die and collect the Shine Sprite at the same time. It's useless.
