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!

DNC Moderators

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.

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. Fights are changed weekly, and are supposed to be updated on Monday, but fate often conspires to make us update on Tuesday, so keep that in mind if you don't see a new fight yet. Failure to comply with the following rules will likely result in your vote being removed, and repeated or particularly obnoxious rule violations may result in a ban from participating in future fights.

  • You may vote only once.
  • You may only vote on the most recent fight. Fights from previous weeks that have not yet been archived are closed to voting, although you may still comment on them if you wish.
  • 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. Anonymous votes are only worth half as much as a registered user's vote.
  • To vote, type the following "#~~~~", afterward including any reasons for voting you may wish to include. You are required to leave this whether you are logged in or anonymous. If you do not sign and timestamp your vote, it will be removed.
  • Add your votes to the bottom of the list. Please do not post anything obnoxious and/or extraordinarily lengthy or it will be removed. Lengthy votes will be moved to the peanut gallery, whereas obnoxious votes can be removed if two thirds of the panel agree upon it.
  • If you wish to comment on the fight, please leave your remarks in the peanut gallery. You are expected to conduct yourself with courtesy. Comments must relate to the fight at hand.
  • Any failure to adhere to these rules will result in your vote(s) being removed.

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 365: Guest Speaker Week: Ultimecia vs Shantotto

Ultimecia Final FFVIII Color Art
DNC Versus
FFXI A Shantotto Ascension Artwork
To help us talk about mages with ego/The great bard, Faethin, our dear amigo/Has come, hands bearing some fantastic work/Regarding the characters with odd quirks.

What's this? A purported contender makes her way unto me?
And she dares smile and make her sneer visible, I see.
Fool! She made no reflexion before deciding to become a challenger
Well then!
It is up to me to teach a lesson to this sorceress, this witch, obsessed with the calendar
You see, no amount of odd inflection, and no amount of strange dilection
Can help the lesson of which you shall be the receiver
And yet, how odd and fascinating! How queer and captivating,
That you portray my defeat at the hands of your pretty little Griever!
Will your beauty or your speech prove to be of mine a peer?
How silly! Of course not! Now is the time to make you *disappear*
Into the void you oh-so-crave, sorceress, akcent and everything!
Get ready then, for the tangles of the plot around you are at length unravelling!

I consider it surprising not that this fight got updated three hours late, but that I updated it at all. Go me. Jimcloud 07:25, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

Is it just a coincidence that they both have a purple and black colour scheme?--Gsurfer04 (talk) 16:12, September 1, 2015 (UTC)

Not at all. Those are some of the colors you use when you want to make "cool" characters. Loll.AnonyMan (talk) 23:15, September 1, 2015 (UTC)

So question... if Liam O'Brien wins, what does that mean for the next fight of Last Man Standing? King of Noobs 19:20, September 3, 2015 (UTC)

As much as I love the fact that Liam managed to tie with Kain, I'm pretty sure he's not eligible for LMS. So Kain goes forward. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 00:26, September 8, 2015 (UTC)
