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.

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.

Fight 190: Last Man Standing Round 7: Krile Mayer Baldesion v. Edward Chris von Muir

LMS Icon
After Gilbart
KRILE Mayer Baldesion
EDWARD Chris von Muir
After Gilgamesh's stunning victory over all of existence, we return to your regularly scheduled program. The defending champion Krile now faces off against Edward. Will Krile be able to pull off a victory against the cowardly prince, or will she fall to his spooniness? Who will be the last man standing?

Votes for Krile

  1. Krile needs to make it all the way and become a retired champion. It will be awesome. That's really all there is to say on the matter. Jimcloud 01:15, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  2. I love the Spoony Bard, but Krile >>>>> Edward in battle and we all know it. Cat 01:31, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  3. LegendAqua  (Talk/ Colosseum/ QFC) 02:31, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  4. Krile can play the harp, and use a $#!+LOAD OF OTHER WEAPONS too --Pzykosiz 10:39, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  5. I'm sorry Spoony, but you're absolutely useless in battle. No offense, though! Miyuron 10:50, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  6. I stand by my point of saying that through Krile's veins runs the blood of an epic badass. So Edward got useful in TAY and had a pretty epic moment, I can acknowledge that. But Krile in my eyes still deserves this one. MirrorshardSceada 12:08, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  7. Agree with above. Awesome character born from the ultimate badass. Basically do anything Edward can do but better thanks to her magic JOB powers. Didn't NEED A sequel to become legitimately useful. And it's FFV, 'nuff said.--AnonyMan 12:38, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  8. Edward cries and fights a sahagin. Krile cries and fights Exdeath. True story. AquaRake 18:17, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

  4. Krile is the reason people like Selphie, Rikku, and Vanille exist. Edward may be weak, but at least he didn't spawn a terrible character archetype. Also, the spoony bard persona brought him victory last week, and it can again. --Time Master 02:33, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  5. ... What happened to Gilgamesh Vs Everything? :( BlitzballArtTidus357 03:37, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Edward is actually quite the powerhouse late in The Complete Collection version of IV, especially in the final dungeon with all the dragon-type enemies.  < Kamikaze Pardee > 03:57, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
  7. All hail the Spoony Bard! King of Noobs 03:57, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

  10. Because Edward can provide medicine for the whole party. Not even as a Chemist can Krile do that. Dogurasu 10:51, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Votes for Gordon

  1. The only time he'll be in the lead of this fight. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 05:43, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

  6. Bias for FFII, even if Gordon is by far the worst party member to ever join the party. ScatheMote 16:45, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  7. Gordon develops far more as a character than Edward ever did. Gordon overcomes the grief of his brother's death and his own cowardice, to rise up and command the rebel forces in tandem with Hilda to take back castle Fynn; a major blow to the imperials. In contrast, Edward was grieving a bit for Anna even in TAY, and was still frail emotionally and physically. Also, Gordon's brother Scott teamed up with other dead characters to take down the light(er) half of emperor Mateus. Anna just encouraged Edward a bit. Therefore, all evidence shows that the prince of Kashuan beats the spoony bard any day. --Time Master 17:32, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  8. Gordon helped me out much more than Edward ever did. *That Spoody Bard*CecilAxel 17:36, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  9. The original Spoony Guy.  The SirLaguna Dissicon ff8 Lag1 17:51, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  10. Gordon may have been a pain in the ass to use, but he got over it at least. Edward did too almost, but in the end, really failed to compare with Gordon. Gordon even ended up with Hilda, after leading his army with high morale. Edward cried for a little while and only marginally helped. Durmer Darc 17:53, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  11. I found Gordon more useful in battle generally, since anyone can easily be made killer through grinding in FFII. --ClixPsi 20:09, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  12. Gordon's actually a good character and showed great character development. SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2 20:12, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  13. In the original versions of the games, Gordon ends up being more useful, and easier to train --Pzykosiz 23:54, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  14. Best character in FFII. <3 -User:Wtdrmfrthwbzn

  1. Edward never really was an asset to my either version of the game. At least Gordon, for the brief time he was in my party, could be of any use. And besides that, Edward is a spoony bard. -- 10:33, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Votes for Edward

  1. As of the latest release of Final Fantasy IV, Edward - while not an amazing character - has the potential to be devastating. His stats skyrocket at high levels, and with the Loki's Lute, he can hit any non-boss with 9,999 damage. In TAY, he is a staple for party-wide buffs and healing as well. Sure, he pines for his beloved for two decades, but that only shows his devotion. And he stands up to Kain, knowing it's suicide. Wielding a harp. Insane, but badass. Dogurasu 10:13, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  2. He had the guts to stand up to Dark Kain in The After Years and turn his weapon against himself. That is bound to earn you respect. MirrorshardSceada 12:00, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  3. YOU SPOONY BARD! C A T U S E 16:40, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  4. CAPTAIN POOSAY <3 LC 17:55, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  5. The one who brought us Spoony-ness. King of Noobs 18:27, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Endless spoonyness. Fëasindë Peth 18:29, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  7. Spoony proved himself competent a good twenty years later. This is something I do not believe we see Gordon do. Jimcloud 18:33, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  8. Currently playing The Complete Collection and Edward becomes an absolute powerhouse late in the IV portion as far as I know.  < Kamikaze Pardee > 19:20, March 25, 2012 (UTC)
  9. Edward's okay. Gameplay-wise he left a lot to be desired(sequels and IV remakes aside) but he was as interesting character. They can't all be a mediocre warrior who hypnotized everyone into thinking he's so cool. Gordon's okay too all the FF2 Temps were better characters.--AnonyMan 01:33, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
  10. Catuse says it all... BlitzballArtTidus357 04:21, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
  11. Gilbert was more memorable to me, but FF2 was a good game, and Gordon was a good character ZaFlareStar 16:54, 26th March 2012 (GMT+3)
  12. Everything I wanted to say has already been said several times, but I'm gonna say it again anyway: Spoony. Miyuron 18:02, March 27, 2012 (UTC)
  13. Not just for the meme, Edward bucked up and got useful in TAY and DS. Gordon is a wimp in all versions of his game. Drake Clawfang (talk) 20:20, March 27, 2012 (UTC)
  14. You spoony bard! --Sencilia 13:31, March 28, 2012 (UTC)

I think I'm gonna have to abstain from voting in this one. I've never played II, and I've never liked to vote without having played both games so I can form a real opinion of the characters. AquaRake 18:20, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

@Jim: You can't blame that on the man himself, what with Edward having the benefit of a direct sequel. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 18:41, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

@Catuse: Er, btw, your walkthrough page you've linked to, it seems messed up to me. I doubt it's my laptop, as every other page seems normal, but... The logo and the "Discussion" and "Edit" things are all over the place. BlitzballArtTidus357 04:27, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

And I forgot to link to the correct section too. As it turns out, I forgot to fix a template. Gah. These past few days have NOT been my finest hour. C A T U S E 02:56, March 27, 2012 (UTC)

Wow... Can't believe a FFII character is actually winning. Watch this now jinx his chances. --ClixPsi 17:53, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Blame it on the boogie the huge amount of people here who hate Edward. Though I'm guessing it might be a tie. Or maybe not. Who knows >;3 C A T U S E 02:56, March 27, 2012 (UTC)
