I've been into the speedrunning community for over 10 years, but I've never got into the Sonic speedrun community. Does anyone know of any speedrunners to watch for any of the 2D games? I was hoping to see some people run Mania, but I haven't found that many consistent runners. Any recommendations would be great.

I don't think Mania speedruns have really taken off yet, since the game is less than 2 months old.

Werster and his brother Mike89 are pretty good. Mike still runs the game from time to time in various ways. I'm pretty sure there's a few here who do at least casually.

In addition to Western and Mike89, I will add HDL, TimpZ, TeeNTee, and FlyingFox (for the classics), and DarkSpineSonic for the modern games. There are likely a lot of people I am forgetting, but looking through can lead you to them.

Why is basically every Sega Genesis except this game relatively unpopular to speed run? This list is depressing. Though according to the same site, Sonic Mania already has 192 players, so there's hope for that game's speed running community at least. Kind of baffled why Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are by far the most popular Sonic games to speed run considering their pacing issues.

SA1 and SA2 have a ton of glitches to exploit, some of which add fun to a game that is pretty unstable during normal play.
