Notes The 12th Competition, official name: SASUKE2003秋 (literally SASUKE 2003 Fall) is arguably one of the best and most successful tournaments to not have a winner. The First Stage started out with Yamada Koji clearing with over thirteen seconds left on the clock. He became only the second #1 to do so and the first #1 to do that in his debut. After a string of failures, #70-100 showed great success. All 6 All-Stars (5 at the time and future All-Star Shiratori Bunpei) cleared the first stage for the second straight tournament. Due to weather, the first stage went into the night for the first time in SASUKE history (a trend that would continue for several more tournaments).

In the second stage, a record 8 straight people cleared. Had it not been for Yamada Katsumi's disqualification, there would have been a 100% Second Stage success rate, the only other tournament where this has occurred being SASUKE 6.

In the third stage, competitors again went deep into the course. Out of the 10 third stage competitors, 9 of them made it to the Cliffhanger and 5 of them made it to the Pipe Slider. In the end, 3 people cleared the third stage (including Shiratori Bunpei who cleared on his first stage 3 attempt) to make it to the Final Stage, the most since SASUKE 3. In the Final Stage, Nagano Makoto came 0.11 seconds short from achieving kanzenseiha, the closest loss since Yamada Katsumi's failure in SASUKE 3.
