The optimal route uses Toon Link and Smash Link amiibo. The route option without amiibo is roughly 40 seconds slower than the Amiibo one and relies on a banana drop right after entering Hyrule Castle.If no banana drops chances are high that the strength potion will only be LVL2, making the Ganon fights slower.
Note that the fastest version for this category is WiiU digital german.
