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!

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:
If the two opponents tie, the both characters will be retired, and two new fighters will appear.
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 incompatible with LMS (i.e. if the previous winner was a game mechanic, a summon, or an enemy) or for special celebrations.
Week 272: Magicite Madness Champion Showdown: Terra v. Zidane
FF WIKI'S MAGICITE MADNESS IIIBATTLE OF CHAMPIONS
Zidane had defeated all his competition. 383 characters had fallen. Many fan favorites had bowed to the competition. Zidane rose triumphant, defeating Celes to claim the gold. As he jumped for joy, he ran into the next room to claim his trohpy. Little did he know he had one more challenge. In that room sat Terra upon her throne. She gazed down at Zidane and realized that she was looking at the newest champion. Both realized what was to come: it was the time for the showdown of champions, just as it happened many years ago with Vivi and Terra. Who would win, in this battle of champions?
In the end, both Terra and Zidane are victors, champions, and winners. Thanks for supporting us on the third iteration of Magicite Madness! Get voting for the last time!

In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me? — YuanSalut 00:43, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
No one can question my adoration for Terra, my favorite female of the series. However, Zidane is my all-time favorite period, and I think one of the best all-around characters of Final Fantasy. He's funny and witty, badass and confident, but is also complex and subtle. He's likeable and cool while still having character depth, because he deals with his issues in a more beliveable manner than just being an introverted loner with no social skills. Here's to Zidane, the one, the only. Drake Clawfang (talk) 00:44, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
DEFENDING CHAMPION BALTHIER FINAL FANTASY XII VICTORY - 21 - 5
LAST MAN STANDING
'CHALLENGER Paine FINAL FANTASY X-2 DEFEAT' - 21 - 5'
Balthier now faces off against Paine, who is attempting to carry a gun about half her size. You see, that picture was caught in freeze-frame just before she toppled over in a horrible and messy accident. You see, that's why her body is shaped in a completely improbable way in that picture.
Ahem. Anyway, who will be the last man standing?

I.. I was going to vote Paine, but my eye was drawn to the orange thong Paine is wearing over her outfit, which appears to be nailed on. After that... no. Just... no. Jimcloud 01:48, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Is it just me or does the description for this fight sound biased?188.8.131.52 05:21, October 24, 2013 (UTC)
Counting is hard. ScatheMote 01:18, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Scathe, could we try going a single month without you managing to screw something up in the DNC? Just a month? Drake Clawfang (talk) 01:25, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

I feel so lonely on the other side :( --Pzykosiz (talk) 04:20, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Yikes. That's a Painefully stupid pic for her. Being neither fabulous or glamorous enough to pull that off. I can see why she only has uno vote. --AnonyMan (talk) 14:29, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. I would like to know what kind of drugs they were on when they chose that colour scheme.Squallisnotemo (talk) 07:58, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
I don't know if anyone noted, but the name of the last fight victor is wrong (it is appearing that Noel won). JC Holy Knight (talk) 01:30, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
I just went ahead and fixed it. My apologies to the DNC staff if I've overstepped any boundaries in doing so. —JustAnotherJoshtalk 09:13, October 24, 2013 (UTC)
I don't know about the staff, but I thank you for fixing it. I was also afraid of overstepping myself (especially considering that I'm no good in editing, and could cause a worse issue, instead of a fix). JC Holy Knight (talk) 23:44, October 24, 2013 (UTC)
These two protagonists were each brought in to replace older heroes in a direct sequel to a core Final Fantasy game. But which of these two divisive heroes left a better impression: the one who hunts for Spheres, or the one who hunts for survival?
Alrite! My sugestion! Erm, back to business...Voting for Paine because of how nice she developed through the game as a character and reading about her involvement in Last Mission just makes my heart warm. ;) —Kaimi(999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 12:15, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Both occupy different ends of the Complete Tool spectrum but I'll go with her. X-3 by default has better gameplay plus I can make Paine-ful puns and jokes at her expense.--AnonyMan (talk) 03:22, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
No-one really seems to care this week. Maybe everyone's all voted out from magicite madness?Squallisnotemo (talk) 08:43, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe they don't like direct sequels and hate everyone in them? King of Noobs 12:35, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
