What happened in Dream's Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Assassins?

On July 27th, 2021, Dream's latest installment to his hit series, Minecraft Manhunt,"Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Assassins," premiered.

The video featured the infamous speedrunner himself alongside both George "GeorgeNotFound" Davidson and Nick "Sapnap." As with most of these challenges, there was a modded element putting both the speedrunner and assassins at equal advantages and disadvantages.

This time, they modded a feature that made it so that Dream could be defeated in one hit. That being said, he can freeze either of the assassins at a time by looking at them. If he keeps looking at either of them, he'll be able to keep them frozen for long periods.

After over thirty minutes of close calls and clever clutches, the assassins won by outsmarting the speedrunner and cornering him as soon as he went through his nether portal and entered the fiery region.

How did Dream's "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Assassins" end?

Dream's latest video took quite a few dips and turns, despite the outcome ending in both the assassins' victory.

Although Sapnap, Dream, and George all had roles in creating the mod that allowed them to set up this video. They don't get the time to strategize with the mod and discover what other advantages and disadvantages each of their specific mechanics allow.

This results in several "on the fly" clutches and strategies that further push both sides to think outside the box.

In this vein, Dream first discovered that he could easily drown either of the assassins. This started when he looked over at the approaching assassins after he fled to an island on the water. The maneuver trapped the two underwater, killing Sapnap.

Dream managed to camp underwater for a bit in an attempt to bait the two assassins into swimming deep down so he could easily freeze and drown them. Although this strategy was clever, it was quickly counteracted.

After this came several close calls. George and Sapnap were out for blood, and they weren't letting the speedrunner's clever clutches slow down their mission to assassinate the target.

While digging up to get out of a cave, the speedrunner surfaced right below where the assassins were digging down to reach him. Their fists were being flung rapidly at the speedrunner, but he managed to keep them frozen and slipped out of the hole well enough to not be hit.

Dream's small victory didn't last nearly long enough. As he would soon be cornered again in a close call at the end of a cave. Digging up, he hit a pocket of gravel that fell, kept him in place, and began suffocating him. This would also mean that the assassins below him could easily, and quickly, destroy the blocks underneath him.

Dream managed to build up fast enough to put some space between him and the assassins. He would also find another pocket of gravel to rain down on the pursuers below him, once again killing Sapnap.

George built up to where the speedrunner was hiding, coming dangerously close to killing the latter. Dream froze him and dropped gravel down the hole he was ascending through, killing George.

This, in the end, would ward off both assassins for enough time that the speedrunner could start building a nether portal. Although, as we know, that action would end up being the beginning of the end.

Also Read

The assassins managed to sneak up on the speedrunner, but Sapnap was ultimately killed by a creeper. George was mysteriously absent at the time, still trying to find the cave that the speedrunner was in.

Dream completed his nether portal and went through to the nether. Unfortunately, George was there waiting for him. He killed the speedrunner in one hit and ended his run in a victory for the assassins.

We decided to call this series Minecraft Manhunt. This video is a different rendition of it, where there are TWO hunters instead of just one.

This is a new Minecraft but, 1.15 challenge that we have decided to try. I try to beat the game, while my friend George AND my friend Sapnap tries to prevent me from doing it. It's a race, and it's super intense and we had a lot of laughs. I love doing these challenges.

If this video gets 150,000 likes we'll do it again!

Not Minecraft, But Water Rises or Minecraft, But Lava Rises, or any other but challenge like that. This is a speed run / speed runner of Minecraft against a killer / assassin

Vs 2 hunters dream speedrunner

Lets Play / Dream


Come here, George!note Or Sapnap, Bad, Ant, or Sam.

Dream (real name: Clay) is a YouTuber and streamer primarily known for:

  • His Minecraft content (largely comprised of challenge videos and speedrunningnote even receiving a few world records in the 1.9 to 1.15 category)
  • His anonymity (only sharing his voice, with his name and face still officially unknown)
  • Being one of the fastest-growing creators in modern YouTube history.

He had a few viral hits in late 2019 but wouldn't truly strike it big until late December 2019, when he released a video called "Beating Minecraft, But My Friend Tries To Stop Me...", a video he also dubbed "Minecraft Manhunt", wherein Dream tries to speedrun Minecraft all the way up to killing the Ender Dragon before the designated hunter, his friend GeorgeNotFound, kills him once. The video was followed by a rematch between the two. Although Dream didn't plan on making more beyond the pair, they quickly became massive hits, eclipsing his prior hits in a fraction of the time, and setting him on a path to a meteoric rise in popularity.

Dream and his friends were propelled to massive Internet fame through this series, with Dream himself ending up at over 14.5 million subscribers within a yearnote He had a million subs at the time of the first episode's release. Currently, he sits at over 25 million subscribers, and between his prominence in the Minecraft community and YouTube's trending and recommendations, it's far easier to find a creator who hasn't at least heard of him at this point. In short, Dream went from an effective nobody to a mainstream name in mere months, and his growth is among the fastest YouTube has ever seen.

Dream's largest controversy as of writing occurred in December 2020, when he was accused of cheating in a livestreamed Minecraft 1.16 speedrun. Claims were specifically made that he modified the game to increase bartering rates for Ender Pearls and drop rates for Blaze Rods, increasing his chance of obtaining both and thus cutting down the time needed to beat the game. A mathematical analysis of his streams showed that the probability of these rates occurring normally was 1 in 7.5 trillion. Dream enlisted an astrophysicist to argue against this conclusion, but their own math resulted in odds of 1 in 10 million (later revised to 1 in 100 million). Speedrun.com's moderators have stood by their judgment, invalidating his runs and banning him from submitting further runs. Having long accepted the decision, Dream eventually admitted on May 30, 2021 via Pastebin that he did modify the game to increase the item probabilities, although he claimed that he never intended to use the modified game for anything other than casual play with friends (in short: he cheated without intending to), having also apologized to Speedrun.com's mods for the problems he caused.

In 2021, Dream began releasing music; as of now, his discography currently consists of three songs: "Roadtrip", "Mask", and "Change My Clothes" (with Alec Benjamin).

Dream also has a very popular SMP server with dozens of members, including every major Manhunt participant as well as fellow YouTubers Skeppy, WilburSoot, TommyInnit, and TheEret. The server is known for its improvised roleplay, which at least one news outlet has compared to a Machiavellian political drama.

Apart from his main channel, Dream has several side channels: DreamXD (which contains extra footage of his main channel videos), Dream Team (which he shares with close friends GeorgeNotFound and Sapnap), Dream Shorts (which contains short skits), Dream Music (which contains official lyric and music videos for his songs), a channel dedicated exclusively to Manhunt, and Dream Tech (which contains videos about technology). Tropes specific to Dream Shorts go here.

  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 5 Hunters" (Dream VS George, Sapnap, Bad, Ant, and Awesamdude)—Winner: Continuing the trend of the hunters winning the first round of each saga, the hunters somehow revive the dragon even though it hadn't died yet, with George killing Dream soon after.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 5 Hunters REMATCH" (Dream VS George, Sapnap, Bad, Ant, and Awesamdude)—Winner: Using a flying machine, Dream ended up with an Elytra and full diamond gear, granting him enough of an advantage to decimate the dragon.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 5 Hunters FINALE" (Dream VS George, Sapnap, Bad, Ant, and Awesamdude)—Winner: Dream took the victory by using an Ender Pearl stasis chamber to enter the End miles ahead of the hunters and a water pillar to trap the dragon when it perched, allowing Dream to snipe at it without fail.

    Hitmen Series 

A spinoff of the "core series" where a Survivor must hold out against several Hitmen for several minutes until time runs out. The exact time limit changes from video to video, and later videos have built-in grace periods.

  • "Minecraft Survivalist VS 3 Hitmen" (Dream VS George, Sapnap, and Bad)note Time limit of 60 minutes—Winner: Dream survived the full hour after a close match.
  • "Minecraft Survivor VS 3 Hitmen" (Dream VS George, Sapnap, and Bad)note Time limit extended to 90 minutes, with built-in grace periods every 10 minutes—Winner: After a particularly tense match, Dream manages to hold out for the full 90 minutes.

    Special Manhunts 

These are Manhunt videos with special guests or gimmicks, sometimes both.

  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Assassin" (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video is that George can one-shot Dream, but can't move if Dream is looking at him—Winner: George, who was the Assassin, won.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Hunter" (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video is that Dream is the one hunting George, who is trying to speedrun—Winner: Dream won as the hunter instead of the hunted.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Assassin ft. Notch" (Dream VS Notch and George)note The gimmick of this video is that Dream is the hunter, and must kill Notch while George is protecting and helping him—however, despite the billing, the gimmick from the assassin video does not carry over into this video—Winner: Dream killed Notch while they were in the Nether.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Assassin (Again)" (Dream VS George)note Repeat of "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Assassin"—Winner: George won this round, being the Assassin in this video.
  • "Minecraft, But The Mobs Are Controlled By A Player..." (Dream VS George)note This video is not officially listed as a Manhunt, but the core premise is the same. The gimmick of this video is that George can take control of any mob he needs in order to hunt down Dream—however, this means he can't attack Dream if there aren't any mobs around—Winner: George, who controlled the malevolent mobs, won against Dream in this video.
  • "2 Minecraft Speedrunners VS Terminator" (Dream and George VS OoogaBoooga/AI, not officially listed as a Manhunt but the core premise is the same)note The gimmick of this video is that Dream and George team up (for the first and only time in the Manhunt series) to speedrun the game as a Minecraft-playing AI named OoogaBoooga hunts them down—Winner: The OoogaBoooga/AI robot character won.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Hunter LIVE" (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video, aside from it being livestreamed, is that there are two rounds, one with Dream as the hunter and one with George as the hunter, potentially allowing a tie if one player wins one round each—Winner: Tie (both players won one round apiece as the hunter)
  • "3 Minecraft Speedrunners VS Hunter ft. MrBeast" (Dream VS Jimmy, Karl, and Chandler)note The gimmick of this video is that Dream is the hunter and must kill the three members of MrBeast before they beat the game—if any one of them dies, they can continue to help the surviving members, but Dream does not have to kill them again to win—Winner: Dream won the round against the MrBeast trio.
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS PRO" (Dream VS IlluminaHD)note The gimmick of this video is that there are two rounds, one with Dream as the hunter and one with IlluminaHD as the hunter, potentially allowing a tie if one player wins one round each—Winner: Tie (both players won one round apiece as the hunter)
  • "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Assassins" (Dream VS George and Sapnap)note Same gimmick as the other Assassin videos, but this one is with two of them.—Winner: The Assassins won, as George used a Nether Portal link-up trick.

    Other Competitions 

  • Any competition between Dream and his friends that isn't Manhunt.
    • "Minecraft Death Swap" (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video is that players swap positions every five minutes and must devise traps to kill the other when they swap—Winner: Dream won by turning George's Nether trap around on him with nothing but an enchanted golden apple.
    • "Minecraft Death Swap 2" (Dream VS George)note Repeat of "Minecraft Death Swap"—Winner: Dream won again, this time using gravel to suffocate George.
    • "Minecraft Block Shuffle" (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video is that players are assigned a random block every five minutes and must stand on that block before the next block is assigned, or else they lose—Winner: Dream won after George failed to craft and stand on a jukebox.
    • "Minecraft Ultimate Tag..." (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video is that the players are set in a bordered area. One player (who has a compass that tells the Y coordinate) must tag the other by hitting them within 2 minutes. If they succeed, they get a point. If not, the other player gets the point. This alternates every round. —Winner: George won the most rounds in this video, ending when George tags Dream for the last time.
    • "Minecraft Death Shuffle..." (Dream VS George)note The gimmick of this video is that players have five minutes to die in the manner specified by chat. If both players fulfill their death tasks in time, the timer resets and new death tasks are given. This repeats until one of them fails their death task. —Winner: Dream won after George is required to die to a Pillager's crossbow, which the latter failed because he couldn't find a Pillager outpost in time.

Friendly reminder to editors that all of these videos are on Dream's channel only. Any Manhunts or competitions hosted on George's channel (as he also posts Manhunts and competition videos) should go on his TV Tropes page.

Tropes used in Dream's Minecraft videos:

  • Abandoned Catchphrase: In one of the Minecraft Manhunts, the hunters want Dream to "get memed" (basically "die"). The hunters don't use this term anymore.
    • It seems to have come back as of the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, though.
  • Absentee Actor:
    • Ant disappears after the initial chase of the "4 Hunters Finale" video, splitting off from even his fellow hunters. As it turns out, he didn't just vanish—he was off getting the hunters iron armor. He promptly vanishes again ten minutes into the video... only to come back again thirty minutes into the video with diamond armor for all four hunters and an enchanting table in order to make any future fights with Dream heavily skewed in their favor.
    • The Ender Dragon falls into this in 4 Hunters FINALE REMATCH due to all of the fighting happening within the Overworld and the Nether—Ant kills Dream before he can even find the stronghold. It's especially noticeable given that every Manhunt since "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Hunter (Again)" had Dream at least make it to the End.
  • Accidental Misnaming: Most everyone calls other players by each others' names by mistake, but most notably Sapnap:
    • Justified in the "3 Hunters" video, where Bad repeatedly refers to Sapnap as "Pandas"This is because he was originally "PandasCanPVP", which ended up being taken for a Minecraft username along with "Pandas", so he started using "Sapnap" which is "Pandas" spelled backwards with a "P" instead of a "D".
    • During a challenge with Dream and George, Dream stumbles on words and calls Sapnap "Snapmap", which he does not appreciate.
    • During the Random Item Challenge, Dream shouts "OH GEORGE!!!" while chasing Sapnap, which he angrily corrects.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: During the December 2020 speedrun drama, several memes were made that jokingly referenced Dream's supposedly-improbable luck by saying "He's just really lucky." A week after the drama began, Dream revealed that he's seen the memes (citing one that references Avengers: Infinity War in particular) and finds quite a few of them hilarious.
  • Adaptational Badass: Bad acts as the leader of the Hunters and is quite smart, even killing Dream a few times. Compare this to how often he gets trolled by Skeppy on the latter's channel.
  • Aerith and Bob: George and Sam are probably the only people in Dream's videos that have normal names, even though Dream is a common word in the English language. As for the others, it's up to you whether Bad, Sapnap, or Ant are normal names.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Both Dream and the hunters are not above pleading and bargaining for their lives when they're put on the run.
  • all lowercase letters: in his youtube profile picture (shown at the top of this page), "dream" is uncapitalized.
  • All There in the Manual: Dream said that sometimes, he and his friends have to record several Manhunts before they find one suitable for a video, as he had many times been cornered and killed before even getting gear—and it wouldn't exactly be entertaining for the audience if a video was just three minutes long. As such, there's a grace period during the beginning of each Manhunt where the group restarts if Dream dies. However, to incentivize the hunters to actually chase him during this grace period rather than just let him go, the hunters are awarded money if they manage to kill him and force a restart.
    • Notably, both sides are not above exploiting said grace period. Dream has revealed that he's much more likely to take risks at the start of the Manhunts because of said grace periodnote The example Dream cites in his explanation of this is the "4 Hunters Rematch" video—he goes to a desert temple with the hunters in hot pursuit because he knows that he either gets a good haul of loot, or the group just restarts because he'd have died too early to make a video. The hunters, meanwhile, are most likely to just cut their losses and prepare for the long game if Dream becomes too unkillable, as even if they succeed it'll just be redone.
    • In Dream's analysis video on the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, Dream's Nether roof trap actually workingwasn't because of Dream just getting lucky that none of the hunters had a Flint & Steel despite George having one earlier, which many critics accused Dream of being unable to truly know. In actuality, a cut clip from before the trap reveals that George outright says his Flint & Steel broke while using it, and Dream only decided to use the trap upon learning this, correctly predicting that none of the other hunters had one of their own based on the previous encounters with the hunters, where only George seemed to use one.
  • Alone with the Psycho: Unfortunately for the hunters, it's not them invoking this trope but Dream. Whenever Dream catches the hunter off-guard (in earlier Manhunts) or isolates a hunter by themselves (in later ones), this trope comes into full effect.
    • One of the best instances of this is during the second Manhunt, after Dream breaks the bed George set up in the stronghold. George is reduced to running away as far from Dream as he can, and is obviously terrified throughout the ensuing chase.

      George: You're freaking me out. You actually are freaking me out. I'm scared.

    • In "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters", Dream drinks a Strength potion and gives chase to the hunters, leading Sapnap to cry out for help.

      Sapnap: Help me, guys! Don't leave me alone with this psychopath!

    • In the Nether, in "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters FINALE REMATCH," Bad is riding a Strider across the lava. He's promptly cornered by Dream, who doesn't try to kill Bad but rather his Strider, sending Bad careening into the lava.

      Bad: Guys, I'm alone with him, he's shooting me!

    • In the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, after Dream traps the hunters in the Nether, George suffers this from his own side after Bad is killed to find a way out and Ant is killed by a bloodthirsty andimpatient Sapnap (not helping matters is that immediately after, Sapnap declares George to be next).
    • In the "4 Hunters Grand Finale" video, George is left in the overworld as the hunters wait in the stronghold, and he's quickly left crying for help as Dream emerges and attacks him.
  • Alpha Strike: In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, After the three hunters fortify the End, Dream sets up his TNT to go through the portal, the first ones being set to explode a split second after being teleported. The attack causes a Total Party Kill.
    • Happens again in the "4 Hunters Grand Finale" video, as Dream uses TNT to blow up half the stronghold before launching a volley of fireworks at the hunters.
  • An Axe to Grind: Dream prefers using an axe to deal damage.
    • He also uses an enchanted diamond axe stolen from Sapnap (humourously, it's called the "Dream Slayer") as his main weapon in "Speedrunner VS 4 Hunters".
    • In "Speedrunner VS 5 Hunters, Dream again steals an enchanted diamond axe from Sapnap, this one named "Nightmare".
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: "Speedrunner VS Full Diamond Juggernaut" with Sapnap, "Speedrunner VS Slayer" with BadBoyHalo, and "Speedrunner VS Pro" with speedrunner Illumina are the only three Manhunt videosnote not counting the MrBeast video, which was a unique one-off without George (the usual hunter) in them.
    • Across both Dream and George's channels, "Speedrunner VS Detective" is the only Manhunt in the entire series where Dream is absent, with the episode instead focusing on George and Bad.
  • The Anticipator: The hunters can track Dream wherever he goes and don't need to waste time making progress toward killing the Ender Dragon, meaning they will always catch up with him sooner or later. Dream often exploits this upon reaching a bottleneck such as the Nether or End Portal, using his lead to build traps and give himself a bigger head start on the other side. These traps are often so effective that the hunters literally have no idea what hit them.
    • In the last 1v1 against George, Dream does it twice. First, after making a Nether portal in a village, he gets the Nether advancement before going back and hiding under a house to wait for George, easily surprising and killing him upon arrival due to lack of substantial food. Second, Dream builds a large lava pit in the End portal room, positioning himself on a single block over it to lure George and making the ceiling out of stone bricks so George thinks he's found a normal part of the stronghold. Even with a bucket of water, George doesn't last long.
    • In the "2 Hunters" video, Dream makes a Nether portal, enters to get the advancement signifying doing so, and returns, hiding in a tunnel and leaving lava out for George and Sapnap. When they arrive, George burns to death and Sapnap tries to run down Dream's tunnel, only to be cornered and killed.
    • In the first "3 Hunters" video, Dream buries his Nether portal in Netherrack, leaving behind a tunnel leading to a chamber with a bed in it. When the hunters arrive and follow the tunnel, Dream explodes the bed, resulting in a Total Party Kill.
    • In the "3 Hunters FINALE" video, Dream crafts an End Crystal and sets it up in the stronghold. Once the hunters catch up to him, he runs past it, then turns around and blows it up with an arrow for another Total Party Kill.
    • In the "3 Hunters GRAND FINALE", the roles are reversed as the Hunters enter the End before Dream and create a trap for him, consisting of walls and a roof to stop him pearling away and having three bows trained on the spawn platform. Dream is able to defeat them all the same by dropping primed TNT through the portal first, blowing out their walls and floor and sending all three falling into the void.
    • In the "4 Hunters REMATCH", Dream's Nether portal spawns underground, so he mines out a convoluted maze to disorient the Hunters, who end up Cutting the Knot and destroy the maze with bed explosions, although Dream finds a way to take advantage of the ensuing chaos.
  • Anti-Climax: Some of Dream's Minecraft Manhunt videos end like this.
  • Anti-Climax Boss: Invoked. Dream knows that the Ender Dragon isn't a threat to him unless he mistimes his water placements, and will likely go down in a minute (he is a speedrunner and knows the best way to kill it). With that in mind, the climax of the videos, and what typically takes up the majority of the runtime in the End, is the final fights with the hunters, who have always managed to make their way to the End as well. These fights are typically where Dream employs one of his backup strategies and often where the most iconic moments in Manhunt occur, while the dragon is always an afterthought—of every one of Dream's losses, only one of them is from the dragon itself,note it's the 1v1 Manhunt with Bad and the dragon has been reduced to being slain in mere seconds as the fights between Dream and the hunters become longer and better.
    • The one time the Ender Dragon is the main focus of the fight is the second Manhunt video. George decides that if he kills the Ender Dragon instead of Dream, he wins, as the goal is for Dream to kill it. The fight goes from Dream trying to kill George so he can quickly finish off the dragon to Dream trying to kill the dragon before George can—and it gets pretty damn close.
    • In the "4 Hunters" video, this is finally averted. It looks like it's going to end like yet another Ender Dragon fight, but the hunters arrive seconds before Dream can kill the dragon and heal it using pre-crafted End Crystals, forcing Dream to simultaneously take out the dragon while killing the hunters. And at the end, it's the dragon's breath attack that lets Sapnap get close enough to Dream for the finishing blow. However, Dream does end up killing the dragon within a couple seconds of dying thanks to having ignited TNT, resulting in a rather confusing ending that leaves all five players arguing over who won).
      • And it's back to being played straight in the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, as the Ender Dragon goes down without a fight. The hardest part of the End was Dream trying to sneak past the hunters to even reach the dragon—but once he did, the fight was basically over.

        Sapnap: Did you just one-cycle the dragon?!?!

    • Subverted with the hunters in the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video. The climax is entirely non-action based, with the conflict stemming from the hunters reaching the End first and laying out a nigh-inescapable death trap. The "fight" itself revolves around Dream trying to circumvent the trap entirely or even destroy it. However, while the fight is lacking in action, it is considered one of the best endings of the series due to the sheer tension as well as exactly how Dream cheats certain death this time. A similar case comes with the "4 Hunters Grand Finale" video—there's no final fight with the hunters because Dream annihilates them beforehand, but the method Dream uses to do that is more than climactic enough to compensate.
  • Armor-Piercing Attack:
    • During the finale of 4 Hunters FINALE REMATCH, Ant uses splash potions of harming against Dream. Since the Instant Damage effect ignores armor and is only mitigated by Protection enchantments, Ant was able to kill Dream (who had over half his health remaining, with full iron armor but no enchantments) with a single clean direct hit.
    • Prior to then, Dream's explosive tactics like beds and End Crystals are more than capable of one-shotting a hunter despite them more than likely wearing armor.
    • In the "4 Hunters Grand Finale" video, the firework-loaded crossbows make short work of the hunters despite all of them being clad in iron armor.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: In one stream highlights video cut together by Dream (NSFW language warning), the Dream Team spoofs C.O.P.P.A. censorship on Youtube with fake "NOT for kids" warnings. Dream swears loudly at children and shows them (Google image search) pictures of blood andHitler, Sapnap yells at them about his (fake) bankruptcy, divorce, and taxes... and George just tells the kids that there's cooties in the video and they should leave.
  • Assassin Outclassin': Dream is the master of this during Minecraft Manhunt. Even as the hunters gain numbers (starting with three and later four and five), Dream will find some way to absolutely humiliate them.
  • Assassination Attempt: In one of his videos, the goal is to kill Notch, the creator of Minecraft, while George guides and defends him.
  • Attack! Attack... Retreat! Retreat!: Has a trend of occurring in the Manhunts. The most obvious examples are the 3 hunters chasing Dream, only to see him drinking a potion (including the famous Fire Resistance potion gambit), then immediately run away, due to the absurd damage output of the potion drinker (who is able to easily punch through iron armor).
  • Awesome, but Impractical:
    • In the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, the hunters use beds to destroy Dream's Nether maze, allowing them to blow up any hiding spot Dream might take. While an awesome approach to Dream's trickery, beds are extremely dangerous in close quarters. Eventually, their last bed ends up killing Sapnap and leaving the other hunters burning and on next-to-no health, letting Dream easily pick them off.
    • In the "4 Hunters Finale Rematch" video, Dream and Sapnap both get horses and get into a jousting match. While badass on paper, the Minecraft gameplay engine is not very well-suited to mounted combat, leading both of them to dismount, kill each others' horses (to negate the travel speed advantage), and resort to on-foot PvP.
  • Backing Away Slowly: This is how Dream starts the Manhunt in "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters FINALE REMATCH."
  • Badass Boast:
    • The idea of Dream hunting down a team of George, Sapnap, & Bad is floated in the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" bonus video—Dream would have to kill all three to win. His response? "That would be over in like ten seconds. I dunno about that." And when Bad asks if he doesn't think he can do it, Dream doubles down and calmly says "I could easily do it."
    • From the MrBeast Manhunt special episode:

      MrBeast: You wanna wager some money?
      Dream: I don't—I don't know, I'd feel bad for taking your money.

    • From "Speedrunner VS 4 Hunters Rematch":

      BadBoyHalo: So then, what else could he have gotten that could kill us? Is there anything that he could have?
      Dream: One thing: Confidence.

  • Batman Gambit: As Dream explains in his analysis videos, he frequently predicts how the hunters are going to act when faced with something and makes a split-second decision to exploit it. Probably the best example is him bluffing everyone into thinking he drank a Strength potion and charging three people head on with 1 HP. Normally this would be suicide, but since they've all been wiped out by something similar before and they're just that afraid of him, this works perfectly and they immediately run.
    • Another example comes from the 1v4 rematch, where Dream exploits the hunters' natural instincts to chase him in order to trap them in the Nether, having glitched above the bedrock ceiling and blowing up the portal back with TNT as he enters. The hunters are trapped in the Nether with no way to relight the portal and must abandon their overpowered armor by committing suicide in order to even have a chance at winning.
      • To expand on this, according to Dream from his analysis video, he got this idea from overhearing one of the hunters say that their flint and steel broke. He also didn't hear any of the other hunters say anything about using one the whole time, so he jumped off that assumption into setting off this trap. If any of the hunters actually did have a flint and steel the trap wouldn't have worked. Batman Gambit indeed.
    • Dream ends up on the receiving end of one of these in the "3 Hunters" video. Bad is sent to the End when Dream activates the portal while he was within the frame at the beginning of his climactic fight with the hunters. While he dies not long after, he's first able to builds a lava trap over the End spawn, predicting Dream to just waltz in if George and Sapnap die. When Dream hops through, he's caught completely off-guard.
    • During the 4 Hunters Finale, Dream brews Invisibility potions while in the Nether. Meanwhile, the Hunters have acquired full diamond armor with Protection enchantments. Dream chugs one of his Invisibility potions as they're taunting him over it and slips through their base after getting a good look; then, once he's safely in the overworld, he makes a remark about their base that convinces them he's right there. It takes a while before they think to use the compass and realize he's escaped the Nether.
    • During the first Hitmen video, Dream collects a lot of leaves and, after towering up, bridges out using them. This turns out to be a trap all along when George and Sapnap follow him up and inch their way closer using their shields, allowing Dream to swipe the platform out from under them using his shears.

      George: He spleefed me! He spleefed me!

  • Battle Amongst the Flames: Pretty much any Nether fight in the series is this, but a notable non-Nether instance is one of the final few battles in the "4 Hunters Finale Rematch" video. In said video, Dream and Sapnap are trapped in a lava lake, both having drunk fire resistance potions. The remaining hunters seal the two inside by turning the top layer of water into obsidian, dooming Dream to die when his potion runs out. The fight has Dream trying to fight off Sapnap while finding a way to escape the lava, which he manages when he digs underground and creates a small pocket of air.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: During a 1v3 Minecraft Manhunt, this trope is what the hunters thought happened when Dream leapt into a lava lake in the Nether. What actually happened was Dream was drinking a Fire Resistance potion during his fall. The funny thing is, Bad actually jumped in after him, dying soon after as he and the other hunters debate what just happened.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate:
    • In the later Minecraft Manhunts, more than one hunter is chasing Dream, usually either George, Sapnap, or BadBoyHalo. Or George, Sapnap, AND Bad.
    • The hunters' goal is to kill Dream before he manages to kill the Ender Dragon, Minecraft's Final Boss, so in technicality, the hunters and the Ender Dragon can work together to kill Dream before he can kill the game's Final Boss, though the dragon herself doesn't appear in a specific video if Dream never manages to reach The End and the hunters are there from the beginning of each video and are the main obstacle of Dream's main goal in these videos.
  • Big "NO!": Any of the hunters (often George) say this when Dream manages to kill any one of them.
    • In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, when Dream was in the Nether fortress, Dream reacted this way when he found out that the hunters broke the Blaze spawners.
  • Big "OMG!": Dream frequently says this whenever the hunters manage to force him to run.
  • Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head: There are often many childish insults thrown around.
  • Big "WHAT?!": The hunters have this reaction to Dream hopping across lava in the Nether using nothing but boats in the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video. (18:27) Justified, since he manages to pull off a feat nobody expected him to do.
    • Happens again later in the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video when Dream sent lit TNT to the End to counter their spawn-camp trap, thus resulting in all three falling into the void securing Dream the ultimate win.
    • It's not even limited to tactics. All the players have this reaction in the "4 Hunters FINALE" when their chase takes them to an inexplicable, giant mountain. The thing is so tall that when Dream reaches the summit he can barely see ground level through the distance fog.
    • Happens again in "4 Hunters GRAND FINALE" when Dream uses a glitch to escape the hunters in the Nether on a scaffolding bridge that crumbles just as fast as he builds it.
  • Big "YES!": Dream whenever he defeats the Ender Dragon at the end of his videos, or gets a huge victory against the hunters. Similarly, the hunters will do this if they beat Dream.
    • Perhaps the two biggest are at the end of the two Grand Finale videos. The "4 Hunters Grand Finale" in particular has him give one so loud that it sounds like his voice is cracking.
  • Blood Knight:
    • Sapnap to a T. While the rest of the hunters are more matter-of-fact in terms of hunting Dream, Sapnap seems to relish the fight. Notably, when Dream traps the hunters in such a way that forces them to either wait for outside rescue or turn on each other to respawn, Sapnap gets impatient waiting for the Boring, but Practical approach and immediately turns on Ant, being much more okay with this than he should be. He's also enthusiastic about jumping to the violent situation in other situations too, like Minecraft Bed Wars.

      Dream:(calmly)We need to... harvest their goods, and murder their families.

      Sapnap: There's no love in war!
      Dream: We need to poison their goods- poison their goods.

    • Dream also qualifies. The instant he turns the tables on the hunters he becomes an outright maniac, chasing the hunters with sadistic glee. He's (sometimes) depicted as an Ax-Crazy psychotic killer for a reason.
  • Blown Across the Room: In the "4 Hunters Finale", Dream manages to get his hands on a bow enchanted with Punch, giving it massive knockback. It's one of the crucial items of that Manhunt, letting him win a tense standoff with George in the Nether, and making it much harder to reach him at the top of his pillar in the End, greatly contributing to his victory.
  • Booby Trap: In 5 Hunters Rematch. Sam made a TNT tripwire trap near the portal, but Dream manages to spot the wires and disarm the TNT below and use it against the hunters.
  • Bookends: "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters" (the first one) ends with Bad orchestrating a trap in the End spawn area designed to kill Dream upon entry—and he succeeds. The fifth episode & grand finale of the 3 Hunters series has Bad lead the hunters in setting up another End spawn trap to kill Dream again—however, Dream becomes aware of their plan and sends TNT through the portal to counter the trap.
  • Born Lucky: Even Dream admits that sometimes he can't believe how often helpful resources appear at the right time in the middle of a Manhunt, but swears it's all real. One of the most infamous examples is the MLG horse, a horse that happened to be near where he was jumping away from a sky-high Nether portal ambush, letting him break his fall and escape on the horse's back.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Dream frequently uses BadBoyHalo's Unusual Euphemismcatchphrase "Muffin".
  • Bow and Sword, in Accord: Dream uses both a sword and a bow and arrow to use against the hunters. He uses the bow for far-range attacks and/or hitting the hunters many times when he's being chased.
  • Bowdlerise: On Twitter, Dream released a short clip of a tense moment from the "5 Hunters Rematch", which revealed that for the YouTube video he had edited out a muttered f-word when he almost fell from a bridge. In the same video, he also clearly removed an instance of Awesamedude saying "ass" while he was angry at Bad.
  • Buffy Speak: Bad calls the Striders (the animals in the Nether that can walk on lava) "little things."
  • The Bus Came Back: For a while, George was the one and only hunter. Dream did special one-off Manhunt episodes with Sapnap and Bad, but they hadn't appeared for a while. Eventually, however, Sapnap was brought back as a second hunter alongside George, and when they decided a third was needed Bad came back as well. Just like Dream and George, Sapnap and Bad are now mainstays in the Manhunt series.
    • AntFrost, the fourth hunter of the series, first appeared on Dream's channel in a video called "Last to Leave Circle Wins $1,000," having been one of the two winners. He didn't appear again for just about a year until his appearance in the first "4 Hunters" video, but now he's a mainstay.
  • Butt-Monkey: Of the four hunters, it was originally Sapnap, who typically found the most humiliating ways to die (and often died the most). However, Sapnap eventually Took a Level in Badass, becoming much more competent and aware (typically not falling for Dream's traps unless everyone else does as well). In the recent Manhunts it's now George who tends to fall for Dream's traps the most—and more often than not it's also him who tends to make the most rookie mistakes among the hunters (especially notable given he's the hunter with the most experience).
    • Played Up to Eleven in the "4 Hunters Finale" video, with George being squished to death in an entity limit trap without Dream even turning to look at him. Bad even lampshades this in the analysis, lamenting the loss of George's armor (which contributed to Dream's win by allowing him to survive several would-be fatal blows during the final fight) and claiming he wouldn't have died to the same trap.
    • George reaches peak Butt-Monkey status since "4 Hunters vs Speedrunner" with his carelessness making him to attract all the Endermen in the vicinity. Sapnap even lampshades this in "5 Hunters vs Speedrunner

      BadBoyHalo: Remember, don't look at the Endermen.
      Sapnap: That goes for George especially.
      George: I'm getting hit by this stupid Enderman!

  • Buried Alive: George's fate at the end of the second Death Swap video, and once during the "2 Assassins" video.
  • Call-Back:
    • A subtle one at the end of "3 Hunters Grand Finale": Dream drinks a Fire Resistance potion just before blowing out the hunters' End trap and entering himself; hearkening back to the successful lava trap Bad set in the first 3 Hunters video.
    • Two in the 4 Hunters Finale video. First, at the end of the battle atop the absurdly tall mountain, Dream escapes by exploiting a boat in the same manner as the 3 Hitmen video. Later, he makes Strength potions (actual Strength potions, not Fire Resistance potions as a bluff) last seen in the "3 Hunters" video. Both instances are lampshaded.

      BadBoyHalo: Did he use the stupid boat thing?
      Dream: Remember what Strength II felt like?

    • Another one occurs in the "4 Hunters Grand Finale" video as Dream makes a speech similar to his speech at the end of the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video. He even lampshades that this speech isn't his first.
  • Can't Move While Being Watched: In his Speedrunner VS Assassin videos, the Assassin cannot move while Dream is watching him, and a red line appears. This forms the basis for many of Dream's strategies when facing the Assassin.
  • Catchphrase: From Minecraft Manhunt:
    • Oh, Dream~! note The Share Phrase for anyone hunting Dream.
    • Come here, [name]! note Dream whenever he's doing the hunting.
    • Oh, hello good sir! note Used by BadBoyHalo.
    • Leave! Me! Alone! alongside Oh... my... God... note Dream whenever the hunters are after him and he's low on health/doesn't have a strategy ready
  • Chase Fight: What usually happens when the hunters are chasing Dream... or vice versa.
  • Chekhov's Boomerang:
    • In the ''2 Hunters" video, Dream prepares the area around his Nether portal by digging a long tunnel with a dead end. He springs a trap and ambushes the Hunters when they drop into his cave, with Sapnap trying to flee down the tunnel but hitting the dead end, letting Dream catch up and finish him. After leaving the Nether, he uses the tunnel for what he actually dug it for: fleeing the Hunters while filling it with blocks behind him, giving him enough time to dig to the surface and escape.
    • In the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, Dream creates a Nether Portal above bedrock in order to escape the hunters, who have buffed themselves with enchanted gear. He returns to the Nether later on and uses the same portal to trap the hunters in the Nether, destroying it on his way back out and forcing the hunters to kill each other and lose their enchanted armor just to have a chance at continuing the chase.
    • In "Minecraft Survivalist VS 3 Hitmen", the hitmen mention obtaining some Ender Pearls. Their first attempt to use them fails when Sapnap misses his shot and lands right where he started instead of on top of Dream's tower, but it becomes critical in the climax when Dream kills him and takes the other Ender Pearl, which he uses to save himself after getting knocked off the tower.
  • Chekhov's Gag: An interesting case of an unscripted example. Early in the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, Dream is unable to light his Nether Portal because he doesn't have a Flint & Steel. This ends up not mattering much because Dream is in the overworld and thus is able to easily find the materials to make one, but later on in the video the hunters end up in the same scenario, only they're on the other side of the portal, leaving them trapped in the Nether and forcing them to kill each other (losing their Protection IV armor in the process).
    • A series-wide one. Every video (or nearly every video) has George getting attacked by an Enderman during the Final Battle. Such instances have been memed widely (primarily because of how George tends to narrate such instances), but they come back with a vengeance in the "4 Hunters Finale" video when George is killed by them, briefly taking him out of the final fight.
  • Chekhov's Gun: In the first Death Swap (16:33), Dream finds in a chest an enchanted golden apple, which is the single item that turns the tables on George when he puts his trap in the Nether.
    • In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, Dream is on a boat, collecting lily pads by crashing into them. He uses the lily pads later on to escape the hunters.
    • In the first "4 Hunters" video, Sapnap makes an enchanted diamond axe that he names Dream Slayer. Dream kills Sapnap in the Nether and takes the axe, using it as his primary weapon for the rest of the video.
    • Also in the first "4 Hunters" video, Dream gets a pair of golden boots enchanted with Frost Walker from an ruined Nether Portal in the overworld. Dream uses them later in the video to set up a trap in a river, tricking the hunters into towering into the air and then turning the water to ice when they jump down after him, causing them to crash right onto the ice and die.
    • In the "Death Shuffle" video, while searching for the hole Dream made in the bedrock floor, George comes across an entity cramming machine Dream had previously used to squish himself to death. Sure enough, he becomes tasked with squishing himself later and finds the machine again, and is able to use it successfully despite Dream's attempt to dismantle it.
  • Childhood Friends: All of the Dream Team to a certain extent, having known each other for years. The best example would be Dream having been friends with Sapnap since 2013note Dream has known Bad for nearly as long, though they don't necessarily qualify as much as Dream and Sapnap do—for those curious, Dream specifies in a tweet that he met George in around 2016.
  • Christmas Episode: The "Speedrunner vs 4 Hunters FINALE REMATCH" was filmed sometime just before Christmas and uploaded on Christmas Day. Bad and Ant wore Santa hats, Minecraft's holiday Easter Egg turned chests into presents, Dream turned his Evil Laugh in a "ho ho ho", and the two parties taunted each other with Christmas songs.
  • Climbing Climax:
    • In the "3 Hitmen" video, one of Dream's main strategies is to tower up, and force the Hitmen to engage him on his terms with the threat of fall damage. He does this a handful of times throughout the video, but the final minutes of the match are an extended standoff between Dream and the Hitmen on a tower that keeps getting higher as Dream flees upward, and keeps getting thicker as the Hitmen follow him.
    • In the "4 Hunters Finale", Dream spends most of the End fight up on top of one of the pillars, forcing the Hunters to tower up to get at him. With his Punch bow, he knocks them away far enough that they have to restart their towers from scratch, dragging this phase out much longer.
  • Color Blind Confusion: Not Dream specifically, but George has protanomalynote a form of red-green colorblindness, which often causes him confusion when facing Dream in Manhunts or when playing game modes that use color coding. One example of this happens in "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters REMATCH”, where Dream bluffs the hunters by drinking a Fire Resistance potion; Bad jumps to the conclusion that Dream drank a Strength potion, and George (the only one who can see the potion clearly) doesn't correct him, as he can't tell the difference between strength and fire resistance potions.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Generally, the Dream Team and their associates are this.
    • Dream: Green (generally lime green), being the color that comprises much of his in-game skin.
      • He's also associated with white due to it being the color of his profile picture's avatar and being the secondary color on his skin, but not to the same extent that he's associated with green.
    • George: Blue (generally light blue), for similar reasons to Dream, also his favourite color and the only color he can see clearly.
    • Sapnap: Orange, reflecting his Hot-Blooded nature and also being the color found on his in-game shirt and channel banner.
      • He used to be associated with red (also due to his Hot-Blooded nature) until Bad became a member of the group.
    • Bad: Red, being one of the main colors on his skin.
      • He's also associated with black for similar reasons, but not to the same extent that he's associated with red.
    • AntFrost: Tan, also reflecting his in-game skin.
      • Mild example, He's also associate with brown as the highlight color on his skin.
    • Sam: Dark Green, being the main color of his in-game skin.
      • He's also associated with gold as the secondary color on his skin.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Oh so very much, on both ends. On the hunters' ends, they won't just wait for Dream if they reach the End before him. They'll rig the portal with a trap to kill Dream instantly (with the two times they've done this varying wildly in terms of success), and even if they enter behind Dream, they'll come prepared with End Crystals to heal the dragon from next-to-no health to full health. On Dream's end, he'll use strength potions to annihilate the hunters, rig explosions or lava to harm or kill the hunters in a chase, lock one of the hunters in close quarters to pick them off alone, use a splash potion of invisibility to make the hunters confuse each other for Dream himself, and many more. If a hunter's approaching fast? Sure, Dream could fight with a likely-diamond sword, but he could just as easily plug them full of arrows to buy him a brief amount time to prepare and get the hunters down on lower health by the time he has to fight. Or, better yet, he could just unload a bucket of lava and watch them burn before they even reach him.
  • Confusion Fu: Dream is one of the best Minecrafters at this strategy:
    • In "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters FINALE," the three hunters and Dream are in a cave. Suddenly, they meet and Dream uses a splash potion of invisibility to make them all invisible. Keep in mind that they are all wearing full iron armor. They can't tell which one is Dream and start blindly attacking their own team members while Dream just stands there and takes the opportunity to pick Bad and George off.
    • In the same episode, Dream builds a Nether Portal so that he can trick the hunters into thinking he's gone back into the Nether. While the trick doesn't last long, since the compass can indirectly tell whether Dream is in the Overworld or not, Bad actually goes through the Nether portal in search of Dream before realizing he's been had.
  • Continuing is Painful: The hunters respawn after being killed, but they lose all their stuff and are sent back to their respawn point, which can be very far away (though not always, as they often have a bed nearby—unless they're in the Nether). And to make things worse for them, Dream will loot their belongings whenever possible (he also often burns them if he has no use for the loot), making it even harder to take him on the next time around.
    • In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, when George was killed by Dream, the hunters had to use their inventory space to hold George's items. They realized, however, that Dream took the one thing that was valuable to them: the Blaze Rods.
    • Downplayed in Minecraft Hitman, since the smaller map means Dream can't get far away after killing the hitmen, lessening the impact of their deaths, although it is still painful if Dream manages to take their items.
  • Controllable Helplessness:
    • Happens in videos like "2 Hunters" and "3 Hunters Finale Rematch", when Dream kills all the Hunters in the End when they haven't set a bed in the stronghold, leaving them far away from the End portal and often not being able to find it again since their compass no longer points toward it.
    • The Hunters think they've caused this in "3 Hunters Grand Finale" when they enter the End before Dream and build a trap around the spawn platform, thinking there's no way Dream can escape if he comes in. Dream averts it with TNT.
    • In "4 Hunters Rematch", the Hunters acquire full iron armor with the Protection IV enchantment, rendering themselves nigh-unkillable to Dream. They again think they've invoked this trope, until Dream traps them on the Nether roof, putting them on the receiving end of the trope until they kill themselves to escape.
    • At the end of the "5 Hunters Rematch", Dream is flying with Elytra to break the End Crystals, and the Hunters can't do anything to stop him. Lampshaded by Awesamdude during an analysis, specifically pointing out a shot where George is just standing and watching.
  • Crazy Enough to Work: Some of Dream's traps are out there in terms of logical sense. You have sensible traps like pitfalls and explosives, and then you have portals on the roof of Hell, interdimensional cluster bombs, and adding too many minecarts to one block. And yet they all work.
  • Crazy-Prepared: In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, Dream gets half a hotbar of boats, just in case he needs them for later. He eventually uses the boats to cross a lava lake in the Nether and escape the hunters.
    • At the end of the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, Dream gathers TNT to drop through the End portal and destroy both the hunters and any trap they may have set. However, he also uses a fire resistance potion, as he wanted to be prepared if the hunters simply reused the trap that killed Dream in the first "3 Hunters" video (a lava trap, which TNT can't counter). He doesn't need the potion and doesn't really acknowledge it in the bonus video, but it's impressive he thinks of it.
  • Critical Existence Failure: This happens often when the hunters are at one heart and take fall damage.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: During the first assassin video, Dream is able to kill George twice by freezing him while he's swimming underwater, causing him to drown. Later in the "2 Assassins" video, he drowns the assassins several times, buries George in gravel and prevents him from getting out, and freezes Sapnap so he can't run from a creeper and skeleton.
  • Cutting the Knot: In the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, Dream builds a maze in the Nether both to disorient the hunters and hide from them. Rather than spend the next fifteen minutes hunting him down, however, the hunters grow impatient and begin nuking the maze with beds, exposing Dream's location. This bites them back, however, when a bed kills Sapnap, sets Bad and George on fire, and drops Ant in a lava bath, giving Dream an opportunity to fight them.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Many battles in Manhunt can be very one-sided.
    • The "Battle Box" event in the eighth Minecraft Championships was this for Dream & Technoblade's team, the Pink Parrots. They won all but one of their matches (narrowly losing to the Lime Llamas) and more often than not inflicted a Total Party Kill on the other team.
    • All of the "Challenging 25 YouTubers To A Fight" video. In a series of 1v1 duels where 6 kills wins the game, Dream flawlessly 6-0's everyone except for accomplished PVP player Fruitberries, who manages to get two kills on Dream before Dream decimates him in the remainder of their matches. In a total of 152 matchesnote 6 matches for everyone but Fruitberries, who takes 8 matches since he beats Dream twice, Dream loses twice— and to only one player at that.
  • Death-or-Glory Attack: At the end of the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, Dream has outsmarted the hunters despite them performing at their very best. Their trap has been foiled by Dream's use of TNT, and Bad and George have pretty much given up. Sapnap, however, takes a bed, goes back to the End, and uses it in an effort to blow up Dream and himself before Dream can kill the Ender Dragon. He only kills himself with it and Dream wins, but he got damn close to killing Dream with that, something Dream praises in the bonus video.
    • In the "4 Hunters" video, Dream uses TNT to kill the Ender Dragon, knowing full well there's a chance he'll die. What happens is that Dream is caught in the dragon's breath and killed by Sapnap, but the TNT also activates and kills the dragon, creating enough confusion as to who won that the five are still arguing about it in the bonus video.
  • Death Trap: The point of Death Swap is to carefully plan and construct a trap for your enemy to fall in. The winner is whoever can kill the other player with a trap first.
    • It eventually bleeds into Manhunt, with much of the videos past the "2 Hunters" video being devoted to not just Dream speedrunning the game but also him laying out traps that only get more elaborate.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: The beginning of Dream's videos have a monochrome effect while Dream does his intro. After that, the normal video starts.
  • Degraded Boss:
    • Well, more like degraded trap, but it still counts. Dream using a bed to destroy the hunters in the first "3 Hunters" video is treated as one of his "big" traps, with all the set-up and reactions that his other big traps have. Later Manhunts (especially the "4 Hunters Rematch" video) treat exploding beds as a common tactic that's used by both sides (most prominently used by Dream to attack the Ender Dragon).
    • In a case of actual people, George, Sapnap, and Bad go from being able to handle Dream solo (with each having won their first solo Manhunt against him) to needing each other's backup to even consider taking him on (which is thanks to the many levels in competence that Dream takes). Ant and Sam averts this, as they are the only hunters to have never fought Dream solo, and Sapnap's case is downplayed considering he's still a decent match for Dream when he's separated from his allies.
  • Deus ex Machina: In "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters FINALE," after he goes underwater and digs down to escape the hunters, he finds some diamonds.
    • Sapnap's Ender Pearl at the end of the "2 Hunters" video also counts, being the only reason Dream wins in the end.
    • In the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, Dream finds an enchanted golden apple in a desert temple, a rather rare find. Said apple is the only reason he survives Ant's subsequent detonation of the temple's TNT in a kamikaze attempt.
  • Did Not Think This Through: In the 4 Hunters video, the Hunters realize that they can chase Dream in a line and boost each other by punching the one in front of them, helping to keep on Dream's tail. What they don't realize until it's too late is that doing so expends their hunger faster than just sprinting, and they all lose their speed while Dream still has some remaining. Though a seemingly cool strategy, it causes the game-opening chase to end on an anti-climax without even a proper fight, letting Dream start gathering resources with much less trouble.
  • Didn't See That Coming: The Manhunt rules are usually infallible, accounting for instances such as Dream dying after killing the dragon but before entering the final portal (a Dream win) or Dream dying but not to the hunters (a Hunter win). However, the rules don't account for Dream dying before he kills the dragon but somehow managing to set up events before his demise that lead to the dragon's death regardless... which is exactly what happens in the "4 Hunters" video thanks to the delay between TNT being lit and going off. This leads to an argument about who won that continues even through the bonus video, with the hunters insisting they won and Dream arguing that it's a tie at worst. The rules are later updated to account for this—Dream dying before the dragon, regardless of if the dragon dies even a second later, is a win for the hunters. Later 1v4 Manhunts retroactively apply this rule to the first 1v4, treating the above instance as a win for the hunters.
  • Disney Death: Dream does this so often he might as well get a contract with Disney themselves. Often times he'll be in a doomed scenario but somehow make it out alive, much to his and the hunters' shock.
  • Disney Villain Death: At the end of the first Hitmen video, Sapnap tries to jump from the top of the tower to Dream, who's using a Good Bad Bug to fall slowly with a boat, but misses and falls to his death. Seconds later, George tries the same thing with the same result. Downplayed since they respawn.
  • Don't Celebrate Just Yet: Celebrating too early has meant the difference between victory and defeat in more than one Manhunt.
    • In the ending of "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Hunters" video, George and Sapnap knock Dream off the End island and remove his water flow, dooming Dream to eventually fall into the void when his remaining water runs out. George then celebrates by killing Sapnap, which causes Sapnap's Ender Pearls to fall into the void... and right into Dream's hotbar. What follows is Dream using the Pearl to teleport back onto the island, using George's shock and confusion to utterly own him in their final fight, and killing the Ender Dragon soon after with no difficulty. What makes this an even more notable use of the trope is that George and Sapnap had every reason to celebrate, as if George hadn't killed Sapnap Dream would have died, as he had no Ender Pearls until Sapnap's dropped onto him.
    • In the first "3 Hunters" video, Dream kills George and Sapnap, while Bad was knocked through the End portal early in the fight and was killed by the Ender Dragon. Dream, thinking he's home free, hops through the End portal...and straight into a lava trap Bad set up before he died. Dream later admits that he might have been able to escape if he'd been more prepared and reacted fast enough, but that he didn't even have his hands on the controls because he thought the manhunt was more or less over.
    • In the "3 Hunters Finale" video, Dream kills Bad early on in the Final Battle and after much struggle takes down George and Sapnap. When he stops to celebrate and gloat, Bad, who had quickly returned to the End and stayed hidden, runs up behind Dream and kills him with a single punch, baffling everyone.
    • In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, George, Sapnap and Bad make a trap near the End entrance platform (namely, they've encased it in blocks and intend to relentlessly bombard Dream with attacks once he enters). They then proceed to taunt Dream about the trap, believing he can't do anything about it. Well, Dream can't... but thanks to them telling him about the trap beforehand, that handy amount of TNT on-hand can. Had they kept quiet, Dream certainly would have waltzed into the End and died without a clue about the trap.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Dream being referred to by his real name, Clay, seems to irk him. He outright has to do a double take when George calls him Clay (and sounds a bit annoyed), and responds to the first of many times Tommy calls him Clay by briefly unloading a bucket of lava onto Tommy.
  • Double Entendre: Sapnap and Ant spin Bad's offer of melons to his teammates into him wanting to share his "watermelons" with others.
  • The Dreaded: Dream is this for the hunters, and for good reason. Whenever they corner Dream he almost always has a plan in place to counter them, and they die in increasingly elaborate ways. In the early days of Manhunt the hunters were only worried about Dream when he got enhanced gear (such as iron armor and/or a diamond sword). Now, him simply getting wood or even escaping their sight for a brief moment is enough cause for mass panic. The hunters have gone from being able to be on par with Dream while solo to instantly giving up hope whenever Dream so much as gets one of them alone.
  • Dream Team: Dream's team in Minecraft Championship 8 has him allied with Technoblade in a widely anticipated move, along with KingBurren and Michealmcchill. Even though they came second in points, they won the final minigame, thus winning the whole event.
    • Hell, there's a reason Dream and his friends outright go by "The Dream Team" when together. Their combined chemistry and skill makes them a formidable presence. And similarly to the above team, the trio also manage to win an MCC together, this one being MCC 11.
  • Dressing as the Enemy:
    • Dream has BadBoyHalo's skin for the entirety of the "3 Hunters Finale Rematch" video, which irritates Bad and causes George and Sapnap to occasionally mistake Bad for Dream.
    • In the "5 Hunters" video, after leaving the Nether, Dream changes into iron armor and turns on his skin's outer layer, which he has made to resemble Antfrost. The hunters seemingly don't notice a sixth member among them when they emerge, instead digging into the ground since their compasses say Dream is right there. It doesn't end well for them, especially when Dream starts dropping TNT on them.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Sometimes, Dream dies abruptly and the audience doesn't see it coming.
    • One particularly notable instance is the ending of the third 3 Hunters video. Dream barely wins an intense fight against the hunters in the End... except, y'know, the hunters can just respawn and continue the fight. And the armorless, unarmed Bad then proceeds to sneak up behind a celebrating Dream and one-shot him with a simple punch.
    • The ending of 2 Assassins video. After Dream managed to freeze Sapnap long enough for a creeper to kill him, he went through the Nether portal only for George to land a sneak attack and kill Dream instantly.
    • Narrowly averted during the "5 Hunters Finale" video. After crushing the hunters with a Moss Block trap, Dream goes through his pre-prepared Nether Portal... and discovers that the Nether-side portal is inexplicably about a hundred blocks in the air. He barely manages to put a Hay Bale in his hotbar in time to break his fall with it, and points out that "that would have been... very annoying."
  • Early Game Hell: The beginning of a Manhunt is almost always one of the most frantic parts, since all the Hunters are nearby and Dream doesn't have any of the tools he'd normally use to fight them off, leading to some dud games where they simply corner Dream and punch him to death in minutes. Once he manages to get some breathing room he can gather resources and equipment, giving him a lot more options to level the playing field.
    • Perhaps the best example of this is in "3 Hunters Rematch", in which the opening chase lasts nearly ten minutes, with the hunters hot on Dream's heels the entire time and Dream one hit away from death more often than not.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In Dream's earlier videos even during late 2019, the style of his videos are noticeably different to the later, more consistent-styled ones. The first of his 'challenge' videos such as the X-ray series and the now-abandoned Minecraft, but speed rises every second were separated into episodic parts, likely due to the Dream-Team having much less skill needed to come close to completing these challenges. Contributing to this is the fact that much less footage is cut proportional to the meat of the videos.
  • Emerald Power: Dream's skin in Minecraft is mostly green. Same with his YouTube profile picture and banner.
  • Enemy Mine:
    • In the "3 Hunters Finale" video, Sapnap tries and fails to invoke this when Dream finds him cornered by a pair of Wither skeletons, begging Dream for help. Dream instead decides to build a wall around them, ending any chance of Sapnap escaping and allowing himself to safely dispose of the skeletons afterwards to get at Sapnap's loot.
    • In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, (27:56) Sapnap and Bad try to team up with a creeper. Dream was far enough from the resulting explosion that it didn't do anything to him, but Sapnap and Bad liked that the creeper was on their side.
    • In the Four Hunters video, the hunters essentially team up with the Ender Dragon by bringing in Ender crystals to heal it up during their fight with Dream, turning the Ender Dragon into a legitimate threat.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: In the ending of the Speedrunner VS 2 Hunters video, George kills Sapnap when he believes that Dream, who is falling into the void, has lost. This reckless move costs him the entire game, as Dream manages to get one of Sapnap's Ender Pearls before he can fall far enough to die, allowing him to get back onto safe ground and kill George—had George just done nothing, he would have won without question.
  • Evil Only Has to Win Once: Well, evil from Dream's point of view (the audience may have a different point of view). If Dream dies once, his opponents win automatically unless Dream has killed the Ender Dragon before then. The hunters are not under that stipulation, however—they can die however many times they want and continue the fight, their only losing condition is Dream killing the Ender Dragon.
  • Exact Words:
    • At the start of every Manhunt video, Dream says, "If I beat the Ender Dragon, I win." This comes into play at the end of "Minecraft Speedrunner VS Hunter (Again)", where Dream kills the dragon but George kills him before he can enter the overworld portal—Dream successfully argued that he won, as the rules state he only has to kill the dragon before he dies, not enter the portal. It also comes into play at the end of "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters Rematch", where Dream kills the Ender Dragon a split-second before the hunters kill him, barely giving him the win.
    • This, however, comes to bite him in the "4 Hunters" video, as Dream manages to kill the dragon but dies seconds before (he killed the dragon anyway through TNT he lit before he died). The result is something the players argue about for a while, and in the bonus video Dream concedes that while the hunters would technically win, he continues to insist that it's a draw.
    • At the end of "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters FINALE REMATCH," Bad asks Dream to come down from his perch in the End. Dream comes down alright—and by that we mean he immediately begins attacking Bad.

      BadBoyHalo: Come down here, please.
      (Dream comes down and promptly attacks him.)
      Bad: Ooh! He came down!

    • In the "4 Hunters Finale" video, Dream makes a montage of collecting vast amounts of iron. When Bad asks what he's doing, he explains he's mining for full diamond. From the viewer's perspective (and even Bad's since he doesn't believe it) it seems like Blatant Lies, but then, Dream uses the iron to make a trap that uses minecart entity cramming; it kills George and allows Dream to steal his full set of diamond armor for himself, and it's then that it becomes clear that it was this trope all along—in the end, it was Dream's mining that allowed him to get full diamond.
    • It returns in the first Speedrunner VS Five Hunters video, in which the hunters manage to trigger the dragons respawn sequence, causing the game to glitch and never give Dream the advancement, despite the dragon having to die for the sequence to begin. The argument is ongoing in the behind the scenes video, with Dream arguing that he won, while the hunters insist they did.
    • After Dream does a Total Party Kill in "5 Hunters Rematch", the Hunters beg Dream to not burn their stuff. So Dream blows it up with TNT instead.
    • In the weeks prior to his duel with Dream, Techno trained with Calvin & Fruitberries, who were accomplished PVP masters on par with if not even better than Techno, under the logic that Dream won't be able to find trainers more skilled than those two. And he's right, Dream doesn't find better trainers than them—he simply finds those two and trains under them as well.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: In the 3 Hunters Rematch video, as Dream explains how he managed to craft a fire resistance potion to survive a dive in lava, he notices he didn't get back his brewing stand:

    Dream: Literally right when you got there I had just finished brewing them and I was gonna brew other stuff but I left... I left my... oh my god...

  • The Faceless: George, Sapnap, Bad, and Ant have at some point revealed their faces in various tweets and/or streams, but Dream's real appearance is unknown. He has shown rare photos of himself (naturally hiding his face, of course) that reveals he has dirty blond/brown hair, but that's the extent of what he's revealednote Well, at least what he's shown. Dream has stated that he has green eyes and freckles, but that remains unconfirmed. Even among Dream's friends, only Sapnap (who has known Dream for over seven years) is confirmed to have seen Dream's face (the two currently live together)note Dream later did an interview with Anthony Padilla in June 2021, and he clarified that both Sapnap and former Dream SMP member Alyssa have seen his face, but George has not.
  • Failed a Spot Check:
    • In the "Speedrunner vs Diamond Juggernaut" video, Sapnap ambushes Dream when the latter tries to return from the Nether. Dream manages to lose Sapnap, loops back arounsd toward the portal...only to spot Sapnap heading straight toward him a moment later. However, Sapnap somehow manages to miss Dream despite the latter being out in the open and runs back toward the portal instead. Dream lampshades this with a line of text on screen.

      I don't know how he didn't see me.

    • In the "3 Hunters Finale Rematch" video, George gets separated from the other two hunters in the Nether. Later, while fleeing from Bad and Sapnap, Dream runs right past George. George somehow doesn't see Dream go by and has no idea he was even there until the other two hunters (in hot pursuit of Dream) find him a few seconds later (and are rather understandably confused as to how George missed him).
    • At the end of the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, the four hunters are so focused on finding Dream in the End that they don't notice that he is attacking the ender dragon until half of her health has been depleted.
  • Fakeout Escape: In the first "5 Hunters" video, Dream manages to get past the Hunters and to the portal out of the Nether. Rather than running off once he gets to the Overworld, he turns on his skin's outer layer which he's edited to resemble Antfrost's skin, and changes into iron armor before standing in the portal as the Hunters come through. Since Dream looks like Antfrost and his name is a similar length, he blends in among them and they believe that Dream is beneath them under the ground. As they dig down, Dream drops TNT down their tunnels and kills some of them before running for real.
  • Final Death Mode: In the Minecraft Manhunts, if Dream dies once at any point, the hunters win the game unless the Ender Dragon has died beforehand.
  • First-Name Basis: Tommy is pretty much the only one who has called Dream by his real name, Clay, on more than one occasion. It seems that Tommy does this primarily to annoy Dream (at least, that's what usually happens), and it should be noted that Tommy calls Dream by his in-game name far more often.
  • Follow the Chaos: This is how Dream and George get back to Sapnap and the spawn in "Minecraft, But A Black Hole Grows Every Second..." (6:07)
  • Foregone Conclusion: Dream will escape the hunters during the inevitable chase scene at the beginning of each video. In the event he doesn't (which, per deleted scenes, has happened before), the game is scrapped and the game starts anew—the reason being that dud games don't make for very good content.
  • For Want of a Nail: In the Dream vs Technoblade battle, two of Techno's wins are by the skin of his teeth. Had he been hit just once more in one or both of the matches, Dream would've tied the battle or perhaps even won it, something that is even discussed later on.
    • In the "4 Hunters Finale Rematch" video, Ant is the only hunter to survive Dream's pitfall trap. Given he ends up killing Dream not even a minute later, it's safe to say the Manhunt would have gone very differently had the trap gotten him as well.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Actually, there's 6 of them:
    • Sanguine: George, the 2nd most agressive hunter right behind Sapnap, with proficient skills to prove, unfortunately for him he's also prone to being a bit of a Ditz and is definitely one of the loudest hunters when need be, I mean talk about those bloodyscreams!
    • Choleric: Sapnap, the hunter most frequently sent to maim Dream down, along with being the 2nd loudest hunter, the first one speaks for itself.
    • Phelgmatic: Awesamdude, Sam so far is the most level-headed person in the hunter crew. While George is screaming his head off for falling for one of Dream's calculated traps, Sapnap is furiously sprinting towards Dreams for killing George, with Bad yelling in the background to be cautious and Ant brewing up a few tactics for later alongside BadBoyHalo.
    • Melancholic: Dream, the speedrunner that uses his keen strategies and foresight to orchestrate traps for the hunters to fall victim for.
    • Supine: Badboyhalo, the one to frequently rally the hunters together, and being the Team Mom of the hunters sharing a team-oriented approach as opposed to the choleric Sapnap.
    • Eclectic: Antfrost, the eclectic that comes up with decent ideas such as blowing the nether maze up with beds and especially the Instant-Damage potion trick, when not planning he is also accepting of different approaches to gameplay, as seen in him mining for resources instead of giving chase.
  • Friend or Foe: Cunningly exploited by Dream in "3 Hunters Grand Finale" when he hits everyone with a splash Invisibility potion once cornered. Everyone is forced to stop attacking as they can't immediately tell who is Dream and who is a teammate (everyone had the same armor and swords), and in fact Sapnap accidentally attacked Bad Boy Halo enough times for Dream to finish the job then run.
  • Friend to All Living Things: In the "3 Hunters Finale Rematch" video, Dream seems to get help from animals at every turn. The first portion of the video has him tame wolves that he uses to counter the hunters' own wolves (though this trope is later called into question when he kills one of his own). He also uses a strider to get through the Nether (and later steals one of the hunters' to make his escape). When he leaves the Nether and pushed off his portal tower by the hunters to his death, he is saved by a horse (as clicking on a horse to ride it negates fall damage). And then, when swimming away from the hunters, he gets four dolphins on his side, giving him a massive speed boost and denying the hunters any boosts of their own. And Dream outright lampshades this trope, referring to himself in the bonus video as a Disney princess.
  • Freudian Trio: For the Dream Team:
    • Sapnap is the Id, being quite the boisterous man in games, using mostly whims and instincts supported by sheer PVP skill surpassed by a select few.
    • George is the Ego, being a mediator between contrasting personalities, while usually a calm and cool-headed person he also has a fair share of chaotic and loud moments.
    • Dream is the Superego, the most serious of the trio in most situations with Nerves of Steel in dire situations.
  • From Zero to Hero: Before the end of 2019, Dream wasn't even known. During the years that the Dream channel was inactive, he studied the YouTube algorithm, and then he became one of the fastest-growing YouTubers the world has ever seen.
  • Full-Body Disguise: In the "5 Hunters", Dream toggle his extra layer to disguise as Ant and blend in with the hunters before he unleashes his TNT down into the hole where the hunters were digging.
  • Funny Background Event: During the 4 Hunters video, George begs for help with Endermen. A moment later, he is seen in the background running from no less than five Endermen.

    George: Can someone just... get these Endermen off me please!
    Bad: You're on your own, George.

  • The Gadfly: In the 3 Hitmen rematch, both Dream and the hitmen use the grace periods to try and troll each other.
  • Genius Bruiser: Dream often has enough gear to take out the hunters solo within the first minute and remains a consistent threat in combat throughout the entire video (let's just say there's a reason the later videos end up pitting more than one hunter against Dream). He's also quite smart and resourceful, using the terrain, whatever he has on him, and the hunters' own overeager tendencies to his advantage. He'll use potions, set up vantage points, bluff the absolute hell out of the hunters, and set off traps like a bed in the Nether or a recently-crafted End Crystal in a stronghold.
  • Goomba Springboard: In the "5 Hunters Rematch", cornered in the Nether with the Hunters on one side and a massive cliff above a giant lava lake on the other, Dream tries to use the boat physics trick (where getting in and out of a falling boat will make it fall slower) to fly off and reach a platform on the other side of the lake. Even with the exploit, it's simply too far and he's about to end up in the lava... if not for a Ghast suddenly floating into his path. He lands on the thing's head and takes a flying leap off it, getting just enough distance to make it to safety.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Dream and his collaborators generally try to keep his main videos clean of profanity, though streams have been known to involve some spicier language. Bad in particular likes to use "muffin" as a curse substitute. Once when killing George in a Manhunt, Dream very clearly almost drops an f-bomb, but manages to morph it into "flipping".
  • Graceful Loser: In the grand finale explanation video, BadBoyHalo congratulates Dream for winning, and the hunters made him a golden cup filled with lava. It was originally going to be for the hunters, since they thought they were going to win, but repurposed it for Dream.
    • In the $100,000 Dream vs Technoblade event, Dream himself plays this role after Techno comes out on top in their climactic duel, not once displaying any emotion towards Techno that isn't genuine admiration or happiness for his friend.
  • Grand Finale: In the Minecraft Manhunt series, the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video is the finale to the five-episode 3 Hunters saga, with the Dream Team planning on moving on to bigger and better Manhunts (namely, Manhunt with a fourth hunter). The "4 Hunters Grand Finale" video plays the same role to the five-episode 4 Hunters saga, with current post-4 Hunters plans as of yet unknown.
  • Gravity Screw: In "Minecraft, But Gravity Flips Every Minute..." Dream and George have to beat Minecraft while gravity flips. For every minute, it toggles whether you (and everything around you) are floating upwards.
  • Guile Hero: Dream has survived many a sticky situation in his Minecraft Manhunt videos by sneaking up on the hunters, leading them into traps, making them think he might be leading them into traps, or straight up tricking them into killing each other.
  • Hard-Work Montage: Frequently happens when Dream has an advantage, or when he's preparing to do something spectacularly destructive to his Hunters that warrants showing the preparation for.
    • The "4 Hunters Finale" video is an interesting Bait-and-Switch on the subject. The Hunters have set up a defense in the stronghold's portal room, and Dream heads into a cave, prompting Bad to ask where he's going. Dream responds that he intends to get a full-diamond loadout, and Bad invites him to go right ahead. Anticipating his own edits, Dream warns him "It might take a while", and we cut into a montage of Dream accumulating iron, making a bunch of minecarts, and then setting up a trap. When we proceed to normal footage, George falls for the trap, leaving behind his enchanted full-diamond loadout.
    • In the 4 Hunters Finale Rematch, Dream gets enough distance between him and the hunters to construct a giant pitfall trap involving signs, crafting tables, and sand.
    • The end of 4 Hunters Grand Finale shows Dream gathering a number of seemingly random resources for a plan to make several crossbows and fireworks loaded into all of them, allowing him to unleash a deadly salvo that kills all his hunters at once.
  • The Heavy: Even though killing the EnderDragon is Dream's main goal in the Manhunts, the Hunters are basically his main obstacle in preventing to succeed that goal.
  • Heroic Second Wind: In a Minecraft Manhunt with George and Sapnap, Dream had to fight both of them while fighting the Ender Dragon. Eventually they kick him off the edge and put out his water. George and Sapnap are happy and triumphant when all of a sudden, George celebrates by killing Sapnap, dropping his inventory... which Dream uses to his advantage by finding some falling Ender Pearls and going slightly to the right to pick them up at the last second, then making a precise throw to the edge of the island to escape unscathed, killing George soon after. Keep in mind that Dream had no Ender Pearls before this.
    • Near the end of the "VS Hitmen" video, after battling the hunters during the entire time without ever managing to get an edge, Dream is out of health and out of food. He desperately tries to run, only to find a village just on the world border. With its haybales, he makes bread and manages to eat, then kill George, who charged forward at low health, allowing him to get a stone axe which he immediately uses to kill Sapnap. All fights between Dream and the hunters are considerably more even past this point.
    • Inverted in "5 Hunters", Sam manages to revive the Ender Dragon and deny Dream the "Free the End" achievement, secure the win for the hunters.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: At the end of the first Death Swap, George goes to the Nether, intending to jump into a lava lake at the last second before the next swap and leave Dream to burn. Dream, however, has an enchanted golden apple, which he uses to survive the lava. He then spends five minutes sitting in the lava, intending to just have George die in the very lava he tried to kill Dream with. Dream even lampshades it.

    Dream: I'm just gonna throw you back into your own lava!

    • In "Speedrunner VS 4 Hunters", Sapnap enchants a diamond axe named "Dream Slayer", but he is killed and Dream uses it to harass the hunters for the rest of the match.

      George:His axe is so OP!
      Sapnap:I should've never created that thing.

    • In the "4 Hunters Rematch" video, this applies twice. First, Dream creates a netherrack maze to hide from the rapidly-approaching hunters in the Nether, but this makes it so he can't easily make it back to his portal. Second (and with much more devastating effects) is when the hunters create beds to nuke said maze and Dream along with it—the first catches Dream (and likely the viewers) off-guard, but their next beds avoid Dream, kill Sapnap, and leave the other three hunters on low health in a burning crater, allowing Dream to finish them off with no effort.
    • On a more comical note, during the 4 Hunters Rematch, when the Hunters get Protection IV enchantments on their armor, Dream, being unable to fight them head-on, traps them above the Nether, where they are forced to kill themselves to escape. When they finally resign to it, the surviving hunters tower up and fall... insufficiently far to kill them with Protection IV.
    • In the "4 Hunters Finale" video, Ant spends much of the episode away gathering resources for the hunters, including a full set of diamond armor for each of them and an enchanting table for protection. Dream kills George using a trap, then steals his armor to make himself that much harder to kill.
    • In the first 5 Hunters video, Sapnap makes, enchants and names a diamond axe, only for Dream to steal it using a fishing rod. A few moments later he also manages to steal Sapnap's diamond pickaxe, as Sapnap accidentally dropped it. He spends most of his remaining time in the Nether taunting Sapnap about on or the other, to the point that Sapnap temporarily leaves the game.
    • In 5 Hunters Rematch. Sam made a TNT tripwire trap near the portal, but Dream manages to spot the wires and disarm the TNT below and relocate the them near the hunters.
  • Hold the Line / Timed Mission: In the "VS Hitmen" video, the map is small so Dream cannot beat the game normally, but there is a one hour timer. If it runs out, Dream wins, so the hunters must kill him before, causing this trope respectively for Dream and the hunters.
  • Honorary True Companion: Bad is a frequent appearance alongside The Dream Team. He is considered an unofficial fourth member of the Dream Team.
  • Hostile Weather: Dream and George try to beat Minecraft while it's raining lava.
  • The Hunter Becomes the Hunted: A common occurrence in Manhunts, to the point where Dream's ability to turn the tides at any given moment is probably the most famous part about the series.
  • The Hyena: Dream laughs at everything whenever he's playing with his friends (who aren't hunting him). See their X-ray challenge video for a good example.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In the first "3 Hunters" match, Dream lures all the Hunters through a narrow tunnel he built in the Nether, only to blow them all up with a bed when they turn a corner. Afterwards...

    Bad: Why did you guys go down these perfectly mined-out tunnels?
    Dream: (laughs) You're acting like you didn't go down it too, Bad!
    Bad: I was following them!
    Dream: You went down it too!
    Bad: Yeah, 'cause I didn't know what I was going down was a death trap!
    Dream: Well, neither did they, until they died!

  • I Call It "Vera": In the 4 Hunters Manhunt, Sapnap calls his axe the "Dream Slayer". Ironically (considering its name), Dream takes it from him and uses it for the rest of the video, and it's such a powerful weapon that Sapnap later regrets its existence.
    • Sapnap clearly hasn't learned—in the "5 Hunters" video, Sapnap enchants a diamond axe again and names it Nightmare. He places it on the ground to taunt Dream, only for Dream to use his fishing rod to steal it—once again, Sapnap's strongest weapon gets used for Dream's own goals for the rest of the video.
  • If I Can't Have You…: A pet example. During the "5 Hunters Finale", Dream kills Sapnap's dog. Sometime later, Ant tames a cat, only for Sapnap to immediately kill it out of jealousy and spite.
  • Improbable Weapon User:
    • Dream uses a fishing rod in the 4 Hunters Manhunt, pulling the hunters to their deaths multiple times.
    • The Random Item challenge is full of these due to the nature of the video. Most notable is George using buckets of pufferfish to poison Dream to near death, and Dream attempting to attack the hunters with a Netherite hoe, though it's not very effective.
  • Improbably High I.Q.: Dream is jokingly stated to have a high IQ (ranging from roughly 200 to over 10,000) due to his many traps and gambits in the Manhunt series, with most montages of his traps being labeled as "Dream [insert number here] IQ Moments." Dream does plan out most of his traps in advance, simply waiting for a chance to use them, but that hardly detracts from the coolness factor when he does use them.
  • Inane Blabbering: In the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, when Dream's at one heart, he starts screaming gibberish as he's running for his life.

    Dream:(insane and panicked gibberish as he's running away from the hunters)
    BadBoyHalo:What does that even mean?!
    Sapnap:That means, "Oh my god, I'm about to die!"

  • Insane Troll Logic: In the bonus video for the "Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Hunters" video, George attempts to rationalize his game-losing murder of Sapnap by claiming he was celebrating their victory, attempting to pass it off as a justified response. Never mind that George killing Sapnap was the only reason they lost in the first place, something that Sapnap tries to point out.
  • Instant Costume Change: 4 Hunters Finale: Ant, right before George and Sapnap were about to get killed by Dream, gives them and Bad full iron armor to change into, which they do near-instantly.
  • Instant-Win Condition: When Dream explains at the start of the video that beating the Ender Dragon means he wins, he's not kidding. Even if Dream dies a split second later, so long as he gets the "Free the End" achievement beforehand he wins. He doesn't even need to enter the portal to the overworld - which is normally what an official Minecraft speedrun requires.
    • This rule backfires on him spectacularly during the "5 Hunters" video when the hunters respawn the Ender Dragon within half a second after Dream deals the killing blow, causing a glitch that denies him "Free the End" and ultimately costs him the Manhunt.
  • Interesting Situation Duel: 4 Hunters Finale Rematch; Sapnap and Dream chug Fire Resistance Potions and end up fighting in a lava pool, the surface of which is quickly turned to obsidian by the other Hunters. What follows is about three minutes of battle beneath the lava, with Dream trying to kill Sapnap before the potions wear off and Sapnap trying to make Dream waste enough time for the fire protection to end.
  • It Only Works Once: In the "3 Hunters Finale" video (the third of the 3 Hunters series), Dream sets up an escape route leading to an End Crystal he intends to use to blow up the hunters (as their gear is too good for him to win in a straight-up fight)—and he succeeds. Two Manhunts later, in the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, Dream sets up an escape route leading to another End Crystal for the exact same purpose—but the hunters, knowing to be on-guard, realize they're in a trap quickly. Bad also spots the End Crystal when he's out of range, and the hunters are able to avoid the trap.
    • Typically, Dream only uses the various kinds of traps and trickery once. On the one hand, it's definitely more fun to see newer ways to outsmart the hunters, but on the other hand it's quite clear that some tricks just don't work twice.
    • Bad is knocked into the End before Dream finishes fighting the other Hunters in the first "3 Hunters'' video and rigs a trap near the End spawn to kill Dream. This succeeds without question. Later, in the "3 Hunters Grand Finale" video, they reach the End first once more and try to rig another trap. However, they make the mistake of letting Dream become aware of their intentions, and Dream spends the final minutes of the video simply gathering TNT to drop through the portaland blow up both the trap and all three hunters.
    • Lampshaded in "Minecraft Survivalist VS 3 Hitmen". During the video, the hitmen manage to land a sneak attack on Dream because George kept saying that he didn't know where Dream had ran off to. They then try it again almost immediately after, but comment that it won't work the second time.
    • One of the most famous gambits in all of Manhunt was in the first "3 Hunters" match, where Dream pursued by the Hunters leapt into a ravine, landed in a small pond, and covered up the water with blocks, killing all of them with fall damage as they dove after him. He tries the same trick in the "4 Hunters Finale", but they aren't foolish enough to jump in and land on his blocks. On the other hand, it still works as a delaying tactic — as instead of dodging his blocks to land in the water and keep hounding him, they decide to loot a nearby village first, giving Dream some time to get basic tools and resources.
    • In the extra video after the "5 Hunters Finale" video, they talk about how a lot of the huge, game-winning tricks and strategies used by both sides haven't appeared a second time. As a matter of honor, they get one opportunity to exploit a crazy trick and catch the other side off guard, and then they've agreed not to use them again to keep the 'meta' fresh and allow counterplay. Some specific examples are Splash Potions of Harming after Ant destroyed Dream with no warning, glitching out the Dragon with End Crystals like the Hunters did once, and cheesing the Dragon with an obsidian water tower as Dream had just done.
  • Irony: In the "4 Hunters" video, Sapnap crafts an enchanted diamond axe named Dream Slayer. When the hunters fight Dream in the Nether, Dream kills Sapnap and uses Dream Slayer to replace his own iron axe, using the very weapon designed to kill him as his own primary weapon for the rest of the video.

Minecraft Speedrunner VS 2 Assassins

During this time, he made a passionate woman out of her. Frequent sex did her good. Having retained the slenderness of a girlish figure, she gained a seductive splendor of her chest and rear.

Now discussing:

I probably won't find it now, you know she is often on the road. Why so. She is filming, a model of the type - Lena admitted, slightly lowering her gaze and a little blushing. What is her name. Lena, and if earlier Kostya doubted that something was wrong, now he was sure of it.
