So, since the last LMS ended in a tie (THANKS GUYS), we need to do something a little different this time, and roll a random competitor for Gabranth to fight in LMS. This random generator came up with Terra, which... should prove mildly more interesting than some other randomly generated fights we've seen.

Assuming one of the two doesn't get totally destroyed.

Early in the day of June 13th, 2016 (for Americans, anyways), a trailer was shown for a game of some renown. This trailer prominently features a battle against Titan.

Later in the day, another trailer was shown for this same game, and it opened with... well, I think you get the picture. In this battle for screentime dominance, who will be victorious: the earthen entity, or the feathered fighter?

Victory!

I mean, we all know the true victor of this fight is Prompto's ridiculous VR headset, but that's neither here nor there.

As for why I didn't update, uh... I was extremely busy on the weekend once again, but by the time I remembered it was my week to update the DNC (well, the fourth or fifth time I remembered, but details) it was already Thursday, so there wasn't much point in updating at that point. I told myself I'd be a bit prompter with updating this week.

Now, you may say to me, "But SCM, while we have sufficiently proven Zidane's godhood, what about Auron?"

To that I say, he looked after Tidus for close to a decade without choking him out. No human, either alive or weird zombie ghost, could manage that.

Week 392: Red Dead Rhyming Week: Auron vs. Vincent[edit source]

Auron-render-ffx.png
DNC Versus.png
Vincent-ffvii-battle.png
In celebration of the release of the FFX remaster on steam, here is a fight featuring Auron versus his red dead compatriot Vincent.

Now, I wanted to have a pure FFX fight, but there were no good other undead people in FFX to pair with Auron. Yes, I know that half of the NPCs are undead in FFX, but most of them are total losers and not fit for this noble arena. Vincent is less of a loser than people like Seymour or Mika or that old guy who lectures you on the road, so he gets to be in this fight today. Yes, I am aware that he is a moron in his terrible sequel, but Auron has it much worse: his daughter stars in some terrible audio drama that features zombie shoopufs and Sin returning for no goddamn reason. Coincidentally, you can listen to it as part of the remaster. If you want, I guess. It's less of a time commitment than FFX-2, at least.

Last Last Man Standing's manly grandstanding matchup (say that five times fast) pitted red against orange in a gruesome battle for color dominance, a battle Red XIII only narrowly won. So, naturally, Garnet did the only reasonable thing available to her under the circumstances: complain to her boyfriend. Loudly. And now here he is, in the Dragon's Neck Colosseum Last Man Standing competition. Coincidence? We here at the Dragon's Neck Colosseum Committee do not believe in coincidence.

We also don't believe in Rock, not including Krile in fights, or the release date of Kingdom Hearts III, but that's neither here nor there. The point is, I hope you're all ready for some classic grudge match action! Can Zidane win this for his lady and make Orange XIII once and for all? Or will Red XIII manage to retain his ill-gotten color gains for good? Who will be the Last Man Standing?

Wow, that brings back memories of way back when we actually ended fight intros with that.

To conclude this update with your typical topical Reason Jimcloud Didn't Update Earlier excuse, did you know African folklore is really fricking weird?? Like, the highlight for me is the story that opens with the hyena telling the hare that they should both kill and eat their mothers, and ends with the hare hammering a red-hot nail into the hyena's skull, at the hyena's request.
