DNC Logo Idear

Uwee hee hee hee! Welcome, editors, to the Dragon's Neck Colosseum! My name is Ultros the receptionist, and I'm taking bets as to who will win in a tussle between two characters from the Final Fantasy series! The winner gets, well, nothing. It's more of a poll, really. The Colosseum owner stuck me on this duty after Kefka was defeated, but I need the money! So what are you waiting for? Get voting! Remember, you can remain anonymous! If you have any requests for future fights, please feel free to leave a message here.

DNC Moderators

The DNC is run by committee. If you have any questions regarding DNC rules, please contact one of the following people: Deadlyslashsword, ScatheMote, and Jimcloud. TacticAngel will also help in areas of policy or if somehow all other members of the committee are unavailable. The committee members will take care of changing the fights, archiving older fights, and maintaining the nominations page. Please do not change the format of this page or change the fight without permission.

The Rules, Briefly

Functionally, this is a popularity contest. You may vote for your favorite or whom you think would win in an competition between the two combatants that week. Failure to comply with these rules will likely result in your vote being removed up to being banned from participating in future fights.

  • You may vote only once.
  • If you are a user, please include your vote in the user section. If you are not logged in when you vote as a user, your vote will be removed.
  • If you are not a user, please include your vote in the anonymous section.

Any failure to adhere to these rules will result in your vote(s) being removed. Ties may be called if the victor won by a margin of 10% or less.

Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing is a spinoff of the original Dragon's Neck Colosseum. It is a fight between the previous victor of Last Man Standing and victor of the previous DNC fight. It occurs every other week; in other terms, it happens when the normal DNC fights are not going on. It has the same rules as the normal fights, with a few exceptions:

  • Ties will never be called and the 10% is disregarded. If the two opponents tie, the defending champion will be declared the victor.
  • If a character wins 5 Last Man Standing fights in a row, he or she will be retired from LMS and two new battlers will vie for the coveted champion spot.
  • Sometimes a previous Last Man Standing champion may be revived to fight against the current champion. This will happen if the previous DNC winner is incapable with LMS (i.e. if the previous winner was a game mechanic, a summon, or an enemy) or for special celebrations.

  5. Despite my previous, ardent support for Cecil, I find in favor of Sabin for this match. With his manifold Blitzes and his Desperation Attack, this is a monk that is ready for any situation, not to mention his selfless use of Chakra and Soul Spiral. Dogurasu 11:56, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Props must be given to the men and women who fight with their fists, even if claws may be attached to them. Guys in heavy armor, swing swords and holy magic? Psh, over-rated. I'd like to see them suplex enemies only the Gaming Gods know how big. Plus, you know, the whole "gave up his royalty so his brother wouldn't be challenged" thing proves just how honorable this big mountain bear is. King of Noobs 14:16, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
  7. While Cecil was awesome in his own ways, he just annoyed me. Sabin leaves his kingdom to go train and become a monk, and he later becomes able to SUPLEX A TRAIN!!! Also, just how he acted as an older brother to many of the characters was adorable to see in a huge, muscular "bear". Violagirl33 21:50, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

  1. -- 13:31, March 4, 2012 (UTC) I can't find it in my heart to vote for Cecil over Sabin. And this isn't including the suplexing trains bit.

Welcome to Round 5 of LMS! This will be Cecil's last week in LMS, as he has reached the five-fight limit. If Cecil wins this match, two new combatants will go head to head for the title of LMS champion next week, but if Sabin emerges victorious, he will fight again as LMS champion in two weeks' time. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 05:53, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

And the discussion on how to handle LMS and updates never got any input from voters. If you regularly contribute to the DNC and have not posted yet - and I know you haven't because no one has - then get over there and offer an opinion. Doreiku Kuroofangu 20:17, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

@King of Noobs: While I do not object to the conclusion drawn, I do object to the points coming to it. Were you reading a different script than me? The impression that I received is that Edgar was the honorable one for staying, sacrificing his own freedom and desires by becoming a king, so that his brother (Sabin) could go free and pursue his dreams like he always wanted. Jimcloud 20:09, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

Nah, I probably goofed. It has been AGES since I've played VI. So long, in fact, that it was known as III at the time. King of Noobs 22:27, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

With all the paragraph long votes for Sabin I almost feel bad about how superficial my vote for Cecil was. ALMOST. Can you blame me for thinking he looks really hot in Dissidia and making that my only reason for voting? --Marael 01:44, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

It is a popularity contest, after all. And looks generally have something to do with popularity. Though I do agree, a lot of characters look quite good in the Dissidia series, especially those that came from games before the high-def 3D graphic era. King of Noobs 05:08, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

  1. The wonders of voting before anyone else can vote :3 The pan incident kind of cements Yang (and Yang's wife moreso) as awesome. Jimcloud 17:10, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

  5. Train. Suplex. Drake Clawfang (talk)
  6. This guy made it into my final party, along with Edgar, Celes, and Shadow. Not only does he have raw physical power, but he also has powerful blitzes, such as raging fist, meteor strike, and chakra. He survived the apocalypse and can use magic through magicite. Plus he destroyed a certain undead locomotive with only his hands. Yang cannot do better. --Time Master 21:25, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

  16. Like pretty much everyone said. Bum rushing, train suplexing fighter, that's also a PRINCE. Sabin was ALWAYS, and I mean, ALWAYS in my party when possible. Yang is still beast though but if only IV had a more developed gaming mechanic where their characters actually had more abilities like IX, then Yang would probably get my vote.Dissidian 23:25, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

  19. AquaRake 04:03, March 1, 2012 (UTC) Gotta be Sabin. I don't recall Yang ever having suplexed anything, let alone a train, let alone a GHOST train.

Just a reminder for you folks, but that thing where people decide the future of the DNC with regards to Last Man Standing is still going on, so if you have something to say about how last week's LMS match went, and whether you want more matches like that, that would be the place to do it.

What Catuse said. Kain does not lose a lead like that so quickly... BlitzballArtTidus357 22:42, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

I have suspicions of my own, but I'm not the person to be checking IPs and all that stuff. I don't have the first idea about that. So, I called it how it stands now, and if evidence comes in to the contrary, then we'll adjudicate accordingly. Jimcloud 23:06, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
I'd do it myself, if I knew how. But, again, my n00bishness stands out :/ BlitzballArtTidus357 01:47, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
I have a feeling you need CheckUser, which Wikia doesn't allow us to use >_< But I think if the suspicious users in question all vote for the same character right around the same time next match, then we have the right to be more suspicious. C A T U S E 16:02, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
But, if they did, then Yang would win... Talk about a conflict of interest >_> BlitzballArtTidus357 01:20, February 29, 2012 (UTC)
