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!
The DNC is run by committee. If you have any questions regarding DNC rules, please contact one of the following people: ScatheMote, Jimcloud, and Some Color Mage. 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.

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.
A set of twins, one of the two level-headed and helpful, the other impetuous and independent... Which set of twins am I talking about?
... I'm sure you thought I was talking about Palom and Porom, since Final Fantasy XIV seems to be the last game on the minds of many. The moral of the story: Don't discount games just because they happen to be MMOs!
(True moral of the story: Don't ask for fight suggestions when people who play XIV a lot are around)

Minfilia is better but this duo actually has someone who does stuff other than get freaking petrified and replaced by Rosa and Rydia.--TechnobliteratorTC 02:12, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
Alphie has a wonderful story arc and a better smugface. One day I will finish helping Alisaie... — YuanSalut 02:19, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
Alphinaud is better. Also, Binding Coil has very pretty music. CATUSE 04:27, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
I simply hate Palom&Porom. --Flüstergras 09:52, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
Jimcloud? Updating on time and not fobbing the duty off on someone else? What is this madness. Jimcloud 02:06, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
...Yeah. Who are you and how did you manage to update on not only Monday, but Australian Monday? -- SomeColorMage ~ (Talk) 02:09, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
Madness? This. IS. *shot* Still, this can't be the Jimcloud we know and love. Quick, someone get the polygraph machine and a troupe of cute moogles with sharp objects! King of Noobs 02:26, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
I am slightly uncomfortable with this turn of events. How about I prove my identity by not updating for the next two weeks? ;) Jimcloud 03:29, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
I don't know who to believe, we'll have to shoot both of them Pzykosiz (talk) 05:27, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

I vote for a guy this time. Monterossa (talk) 09:55, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
Aerith's scene makes me cry while Galuf's one does not, but as we vote for ghosts rather than dying people, I'm going with the old man. --Flüstergras 11:29, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
No disrespect for Aerith, but Galuf not only had a purpose in FFV, but when he died, it left a big impact for many players, and it DIDN'T require a well-placed song to do it. (Least not at the exact moment). I could go on. MechaKaiser, who else? (talk) 16:57, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
Unlike Aerith (was only a bit sad at this), Galuf's death made me bawl tears the first time I saw that happen... :( Crashb2007 (talk) 20:57, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
One of the greatest old men who were playable characters. That's got a lot of clout for me. Luacas (talk) 23:39, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
Put simply, Aerith sucks compared to Galuf. He's scrappier, 1,000x spunkier, funnier and Infinitely more awesome and didn't lose his personality over the years. And he uses big rocks as a ride, he knows his way around a mineral.--AnonyMan (talk) 00:06, March 4, 2015 (UTC)
For the record, we probably won't allow Galuf vs Rock to happen again. Unless Scathe finds it funny enough to run it again. -- SomeColorMage ~ (Talk) 09:25, March 3, 2015 (UTC)
