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:
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 326: Last Man Standing Round 79: Fang vs. Edward
CHALLENGER OERBA YUN FANG FINAL FANTASY XIII AND THAT SEQUEL YOU PROBABLY HATE DEFEAT 11 to 13½
LAST MAN STANDING
CHALLENGER EDWARD CHRIS VON MUIR FINAL FANTASY IV AND THAT SEQUEL YOU PROBABLY HATE VICTORY 11 to 13½
Alright, I admit it, you guys caught us at a bit of a bad time. We were trying to style the next fight as a sort of flower fight, with the Malboro suitably garbed up to take on Cocoonicus Crystallis. But there was an incident knocking out half of the makeup team, one of them needed counseling, so that idea unfortunately had to be scrapped at the last minute. So I start frantically calling anybody who I think will come on the same day, and the only guy I can get-um. What I meant to say, was, from our incredibly massive pool of random competitors, we have totally randomly picked a fair competitor for our current defending champion, Fang, to compete against. Totally.
We even took the liberty of devising a theme for this fight! As you can clearly see, this is the battle of the unnecessarily long names. As one of the few characters in the series with more than two names, these two competitors today will be battling it out for long name superiority! Will the character with four words in their name win out, or will Fang prove that weirder and not bigger is better? Who will be the Last Man Standing?
Votes for Fang
Voting for the underdog in this fight! Plus Fang sounds bad***!!! TMG- Why? (talk) 12:52, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I like Fang a LOT more than that spoony bard, mainly cause we get to spend more in-game time with her. Sure. Edward has his useful moments, but it's not enough to match up to Fang for me. MechaKaiser, who else? (talk) 14:19, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
How could you possible vote Edward over one of the sexiest characters in the series what--TechnobliteratorTC 14:21, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I don't know any Final Fantasy character whose name is longer than mine, but who cares. Well, that spoony bard guy there has the Whisperweed, and I'm completely okay with the fact that he's extremely whiny. Whiny males are okay, but IV already has Cecil, thus Edward's existence is redundant. So I'm going with this lady here whose game I never played... again. ...huh, that was long. --Flüstergras 19:45, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
Dues she have a Fang club here on the Wiki? ;P —Kaimi(999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 19:46, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
They say Edward is the Spoony one, but who would you rather spoon with? Edward. That's because he's a little bitch with emotions and feelings and other baggage. If you want a real man, go with Fang. --BlueHighwindツ 20:16, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I hate this sequel less, even Touhou it doesn't have potcats in it. CATUSE 08:00, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I owe it to the Bard for even being interested in playing FFIV. Mierna 08:32, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I will admit, Edward here had balls taking on Kain and going into the Antlion Cave on his own. #Crashb2007 (talk) 09:41, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
Takes a Man to admit they ain't a fighter. All he wanted to do was chill with his lady and knock boots. Respectable goals. More badass than a lame toughguy coasting on looks, although he is pretty too. Also his long name goes in together and rolls of the tongue better.--AnonyMan (talk) 23:36, November 25, 2014 (UTC)
Well, his music is awful enough to help beating monsters at a long distance. JC Holy Knight (talk) 23:57, November 25, 2014 (UTC)
Extracurricular activity for this week: Have any of you people ever met someone who liked The After Years? I met one such individual, once. It was... surreal. Jimcloud 07:59, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
I got it as part of the PSP compilation... I really need to play it, but my PSP is currently AWOL. King of Noobs 16:29, November 27, 2014 (UTC)
I'll be honest, I did like After Years except for Porom's Tale, which was boring. XIII-2
on the other hand, I got bored with it after playing the first hour. #Crashb2007 (talk) 09:51, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
Fang has a less-than-two-minutes cameo in XIII-2 actually.—Kaimi(999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 19:48, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
As far as character screen time goes, Fang is to XIII-2 as Edward is to Interlude. Their appearances were so inconsequential and brief that I didn't even bother mentioning them. No, the games that were relevant to the point I was making were LR and TAY. Jimcloud 20:30, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
The only reason I mentioned XIII-2 was because it is the only game in the Lightning Saga I have actual experience with, to be honest. #Crashb2007 (talk) 22:24, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
OMFG!! It seems that the spoony bard will out Fang out of her misery! ;P —Kaimi(999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:32, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
CHALLENGER RED XIII FINAL FANTASY VII. MOSTLY. DEFEAT 6½ to 11
LAST MAN STANDING
CHALLENGER OERBA YUN FANG FINAL FANTASY XIII + CHANGE VICTORY 6½ to 11
Hello there! Here today we bring you a fresh, new, randomly rolled competitor for this Last Man Standing bout. You see, there was an issue where the pot containing the cat wanted to ride solo, there was an argument, words were said, the group split off, and it was decided that a solo pot did not qualify as a "being" for the purposes of Last Man Standing.
So we made some changes! Here we have the totally randomly picked Oerba Yun Fang, conveniently allowing for us here at the Dragon's Neck Colosseum to christen this week Fangs Week. Because it's Fang against someone with fangs. Geddit? ...Anyways, we hope that our 50% completely random competitors and our 50% completely preselected competitors can have a nice, clean, totally cheat-free week at this week's Last Man Standing. Fur will fly, Fangs will, um, fang, and someone will be the Last Wom-er, Man Standing! I can't wait!

I fear we are merely looking at the tip of the madness iceberg. Pray, do not stay to go down the rabbit hole with me and my cohort, ladies and gentlemen. Jimcloud 08:36, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

I seem to be having trouble editing when I'm using Google Chrome. is anyone else having this issue? It keeps coming up with some new editor, which doesn't seem to work Pzykosiz (talk) 00:11, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Go into your user preferences and check to see what editor you're using (Under "Editing"->"Editing experience"), change it to something that's not "Wikia's new VisualEditor". If that doesn't work, we can't help you, it feels like there's half a dozen different ways that that blasted thing can be enabled and staff only have the ability to disable one of those ways. -- SomeColorMage ~ (Talk) 08:36, November 16, 2014 (UTC)
cheers, that's working much better Pzykosiz (talk) 10:29, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
