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.
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 Fights from previous weeks that have not yet been archived are closed to voting, although you may still comment on them if you wish.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.
VICTOR Guys are we still doing these? If not, no one told me.
Today, we bring you some fist punch guys to battle it out for your amusement. Oh, but I can see you shaking your heads thinking to yourself "how are you going to top the hideous monstrosity and the person in the moogle suit two fights ago?" But to that I tell you that these two are not just any punchy types. No, no. In fact, both of these individuals can do some pretty improbable stuff! Over here on the left, we have a man who is capable of holding up a collapsing building for six minutes straight!
Now on the right, we... have a man who has ridden a motorcycle made of women across a crystalline track... and then... one thousand years later... when he's... five hundred and twenty three years old...? He... okay, no. No. This is a bridge too far. Screw the script, I'm out. Have fun, you guys.
VICTOR There isn't even a space in the last fight??

No contest. Even if Snow IS played by Troy Baker.--TechnobliteratorTC 13:31, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
I hate Snow. I had to wipe my car off twice yesterday and it was still frozen over this morning. Plus I'm slipping on black ice everywhere today. Snow is a bitch and I still have to go to work. Whore. Slut. --BlueHighwindツ 16:27, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
Snow is the only hated character from Vanille Saga I shall never defend (SERAHHH) ~Yeahremix 18:05, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
He's white, his name is Snow. He's practically "Snow White" of Final Fantasy (although I'm not a fan of Disney's Snow White). ;P —Kaimi(999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 14:08, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
You know what else is improbable, you guys?
It's been five months since someone last left a nomination in the nomination section. Mind you, it's been a much smaller two months since someone last voted in a fight, and honestly, votes are what we need as much as, if not more than, fight suggestions at this stage. What I am trying to say is that it's this, or we start getting loopy.
Well, more loopy. You never want to go full loop with this crowd, okay? Jimcloud 13:20, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
To be honest, I had forgotten 'bout the nomination page. So I left you one. Happy? If so, give me hugs and candy. I like hugs and candy. King of Noobs 13:45, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
You're pitting captain Phasma against a chicken stripper. No contest needed. Berani00 (talk) 12:26, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
While the rules of Video Games and Anime say that thing over there would be more resilient and difficult to damage than this fine lady here in solid armor in a fight, I'm still going to vote for the respectable judge. King of Noobs 13:43, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
Drace is a great character, beautifully acted, full of depth, amazingly memorable despite being in only one scene, sets the tone of the game and expands the characters of everybody she meets - even Vayne who seems terribly regretful that she must too die for his dreams. But she's... wearing cloths, and sorry, deal breaker. --BlueHighwindツ 20:11, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
A chocobo fight between Chocolina and the Chocobo Scholar (the last LMS winner) would be awesome. GoldenChocobo 14:50, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

WHAT IS IT? WHY IS IT? WHY DID GOD CREATE THE UNIVERSE JUST TO ALLOW THIS CREATURE TO BE CREATED?? --BlueHighwindツ 02:47, January 4, 2016 (UTC)

If only because I love Gunslinger Stratos. Berani00 (talk) 06:01, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
That thing will be my nightmares for a week. ThePhoenixDown (talk) 14:37, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
I don't want to be seen as tacitly supporting half the other side. You know which half. Jimcloud 18:36, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
I don't know what i'm voting on Pzykosiz (talk) 23:01, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
Congrats to Balthier for coming in first and Jecht for winning the third place match. Sorry for the week break, I had to take a week off for the holidays. ScatheMote 02:23, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
So which game does "This Thing" actually come from? Pzykosiz (talk) 23:02, January 4, 2016 (UTC)
If we knew we would have said. Nobody has any idea. That image appeared on our website with no warning, it has no upload date or uploader. It's said that if you look too closely you can see how you die. --BlueHighwindツ 00:28, January 5, 2016 (UTC)
In all seriousness it's from Gunslinger Stratos. What the hell is Gunslinger Stratos, you ask? We have no idea either. Anything with that sort of horror in it is 3spooky5me. Cat (meow ∙ hunt) 02:51, January 5, 2016 (UTC)
Gunslinger Stratos is what you get if you take Saints Row 4, remove all the superpowers except flight, gave it a gun kata mechanic that got cranked to 11 and then made it into an arcade game. Berani00 (talk) 04:19, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
Is there such a thing as gun kata that ISN'T taken to 11? And if you're taking something from Saints Row 4, isn't cranking that up to 11 already redundant when Saints Row 4 has cranked it up to Infinity+1? King of Noobs 04:22, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess you're right on that. However, I heard a passing comment one of my friends made about this game, saying that since Gunslinger Stratos had a lot of women in the game, the developers might as well fanservice it up the ass. That was when it first came out and I was raving about its insane gameplay style of using two guns for two in-game gun types, a melee weapon and moving about like someone's hacked the Matrix and gave everyone flight powers. Much later, I found out that Square-Enix made it, and I heard that FF-themed costumes have been released for all the characters in the game, thanks to this Wiki. Thus, the rest is history.

You can find older fights in the Archives for the Dragon's Neck Colosseum. All of these fights are closed, so don't bother voting. All new votes will be removed. Each archive contains 10 weeks of different fights.
