Minecraft Speedrunner VS Hunter (FIRST EVER) is a video released by Dream to his main channel on December 26, 2019. It is the first Minecraft Manhunt video ever, and in this video (alongside with the rest of the series), the point of the challenge is that Dream has to beat Minecraft while running away from GeorgeNotFound, the hunter, who is plotted to stop Dream by killing him to make him lose the challenge.
|“||This is a new Minecraft but, 1.14 challenge that we have decided to try. I try to beat the game, while my friend George tries to prevent me from doing it. It's a race, and it's super intense and we had a lot of laughs, pretty funny. I love doing these challenges.
If this video gets 30,000 likes we'll do it again!

|At 24:14, George killed Dream with the Diamond Sword and Dream ultimately lose the challenge.|
- The video's original title was "Beating Minecraft, But My Friend Tries To Stop Me..." - explaining the premise of the video before the manhunt series had become well-established. The title was changed in early 2021 to better fit with the titles of later manhunt videos.
- This is the only manhunt video uploaded in 2019 (although the rematch video could have been uploaded on December 31, 2019 for some viewers depending on timezones).
Dream begins by leaving before George knows. George attacks Dream while he’s crafting, but gets killed. George claims that he has a trick up his sleeve as Dream surprise attacks him and kills him with a wooden sword. Dream then collects food as George follows up behind him. Dream kills George when he’s not looking. Dream collects materials underground and prepares food as George gets iron armor. George catches up to Dream, where Dream gets full iron armor. Above ground, the two fight, and Dream kills George, getting attacked not only by Dream, but by a skeleton.
George unsuccessfully sneaks up on Dream twice, getting killed both times. Dream finds a lava pool with five diamonds above it.
He then builds the portal, and enters the Nether with George closely following. Dream collects blaze rods as George finds an iron pickaxe and diamonds. George steals Dream’s food and enters the Nether. Dream races back to the portal before George gets to the fortress, leaving him confused about where Dream is. Dream finds a floating island in a Spruce forest and hides there until nighttime. Dream finds George digging a hole and jumps in after him. He lands a few blocks above George, surviving with one heart, alerting George.
He escapes before George can catch up to him, seeing his Optifine torch below him. Dream heads to the Stronghold as George follows behind. Dream climbs on to a Birch tree as he tells George he knows where he is. He cooks his food in a makeshift tower as George tries to sneak up on him. Dream laughs at George’s red dyed leather hat. George uses an Ender Pearl to get to the top of Dream’s tower only to be knocked off.
Dream follows him by jumping off, claiming right after that it was a mistake to do so. Him and George battle, but George wins, killing Dream and winning the challenge.
