With literally cold hands, as my first solve of the day, with terrible TPS, I got a good time for me on that scramble. 24.77. It's a good scramble for Roux as well.
I got only 13.57... ;(

Got this scramble from csTimer: D' L2 U2 B2 U B2 U F2 U F2 U' B L' B' L' F2 D' B R2

That's a 1 move white cross, 3 move yellow cross and 4 move blue cross.

Edit:
Look at this scramble: D U2 F2 L2 U' F2 L2 B2 U2 L' R' B' U' L2 U L' D U' R'
Nothing note-worthy right ? Now do this:
z // Inspection
U R2 U L2 U B2 D' // Cross
U2 L' U' L2 U2 L' // F2L 1
The entire bottom layer is solved wtf

Sorry, should've said "nothing note-worthy for a 20 second solver": doing xcrosses on purpose is nowhere near my level :p
But I agree, it's a great scramble for an advanced solver!

Oh yeah me too, for sure ! I was talking about doing them on purpose ;)
I've intentionally done maybe like 10 xcrosses in total and my times weren't even that good because I had to double check if I hadn't destroyed the pair by inserting a last cross edge or something
I could work on them, but they're clearly not my priority right now ;)

For 3x3x3, Cross on top Green in front. (I saw this on YT, so it might have been faked)

D L2 R2 U L2 U2 R2 U L2 U' B2 U2 F' L' R2 D U2 B' R' D' R2 D2

Solve:

x2, y2 // Inspection

R', B' // Cross

R, U, R' // 1st Pair

y, L', U, L // 2nd Pair

R, U', R' // 3rd Pair

[OLL Skip]

R, U, R', U', R', F, R2, U', R', U', R, U, R', F' // PLL (T Perm)


You can try to do it without the y rotation during 2nd pair, but it was worse for me.

My PB is 32, and within a few tries I got Sub-10 on this scramble.

It's a scramble lots of people use to get undeserved attention.

I got a scramble a little while ago (actually 6 months)
With that scramble I got a 8.92 which was my PB at the time.

Scramble: D2 B R D2 R' U2 R F2 D2 R2 F2 R' U2 L' U R' B U2 F D L

My solution:
y' z2 //Inspection
L F L F2 D //X-Cross
y' U R U R2 U' R //2nd Pair
y' U L' U L U2 L' U L //3rd Pair
R' U2 R U2 R' U R //4th Pair
Fw R U R' U' Fw'
U' R U2 R2 U' R2 U' R2 U2 R //LL

different solution including xxx-cross with pseudo slotting and a PLL skip

x z' //Inspection
Rw U2 F L F2 R U2 R' U F' U' F D //XXX-Cross
L' U' L //4th Pair
U' F' L' U' L U F //LL
