This is a set of all-in-one video playlists and shine-breakdown spreadsheets covering the whole game (Any% or even 120 Shines). These ones are usually recommended.
Any% Tutorial Playlist (Samura1man | 2019/09/13)
Best place to start.
120 Shines Tutorial Playlist (Switchmaster64 | 2021/01/02)
Best place to start; assumes knowledge of the Any% tutorial playlist.
Any% Shines List (EquivocalGenius, Jpep, Nebuladiv | 2020/06 – ongoing)
The latest recommendations for strats at all levels; incomplete work-in-progress.
All Shines Index (Milk, Dutchj + others | 2015/07/26 – 2016/02/06 + updates)
A good but old set of strats, often better alternatives to the ones in the Any% tutorial playlist.
Like the previous section, but more useful for alternative takes if you get stuck. Note that the older the tutorial, the more likely things are to be out-of-date.
Any% Intermediate Tutorial Video (JJsrl | 2017/12/09)
From start to after Pianta 2.
Any% Beginner Tutorial Video (Dutchj | 2016/06/13)
From start to after Gelato 7.
Any% Tutorial Playlist (GrandStarYoshi | 2015/02–07)
Full game; deprecated form of EYG (2YG).
Any% Tutorial Video (Samura1man | 2014/07/11)
Full game except Airstrip; missing EYG.
Any% Shines Index (Metacor, EquivocalGenius, Nebuladiv | 2020/06)
A precursor to the Any% shines list with most of the same content + some other useful bits.
Any% Shines Guide (mwolfe11 | 2018/05–07)
“LearnSunshine” – has a lot of prose.
Any% Shines Index – 2014 (Milk, Dutchj + others | pre–2015/07/26)
Probably too old to be useful.
Any% Shines Index – 2013 (Toufool31 ft. Samura1man, Hiddenpower13 | 2013)
Almost certainly too old to be useful. Largely grandma movement.
Miscellaneous tutorials for individual shines or general things like movement. Covering different strats per shine but sorted only by age; the older the tutorial, the more likely things are to be out-of-date.
