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 Fights from previous weeks that have not yet been archived are closed to voting, although you may still comment on them if you wish.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 394: Expo Week: Titan vs. Chocobo

Titan RW
DNC Versus
Chocobo RW
Early in the day of June 13th, 2016 (for Americans, anyways), a trailer was shown for a game of some renown. This trailer prominently features a battle against Titan.

Later in the day, another trailer was shown for this same game, and it opened with... well, I think you get the picture. In this battle for screentime dominance, who will be victorious: the earthen entity, or the feathered fighter?


Votes for Titan

  1. I like being outvoted.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 10:27, June 14, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I know I should vote for one of the two mascots of FF, but this is more a vote for a summon who could have been SO much more epic if he only had more screentime in previous games and more backstories.Free bird (talk) 22:27, June 14, 2016 (UTC)
  3. With the exception of one game, I always found Titan to be very easy to fight in just about every iteration. Crashb2007 (talk) 20:18, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

I mean, we all know the true victor of this fight is Prompto's ridiculous VR headset, but that's neither here nor there.

As for why I didn't update, uh... I was extremely busy on the weekend once again, but by the time I remembered it was my week to update the DNC (well, the fourth or fifth time I remembered, but details) it was already Thursday, so there wasn't much point in updating at that point. I told myself I'd be a bit prompter with updating this week.

Week 393: Last Man Standing Round 110: God Week: Zidane vs. Auron

Itadaki-Zidane LMS Icon


Now, you may say to me, "But SCM, while we have sufficiently proven Zidane's godhood, what about Auron?"

To that I say, he looked after Tidus for close to a decade without choking him out. No human, either alive or weird zombie ghost, could manage that.

Votes for Zidane

  1. Excuse me sir, do you have a moment to talk about our Lord and Savior, Gibbs free enthalpy? Cat (meowhunt) 00:27, May 31, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Zidane looked after Quina for three months or so and he didn't choke him either, that requires even more god-like mental strength. ZidaneSilverfield 06:31, May 31, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Pzykosiz (talk) 11:30, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

  6. Auron is not that cool because Tidus is not that bad. Also, Zidane has "What's That?!".AnonyMan (talk) 14:29, June 4, 2016 (UTC)

  5. OK, no, there is no way that 3 months with something you can placate by throwing food at is harder to resist choking out than Tidus for 10 years. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 13:53, May 31, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Auron is my favorite FFX character! Zhor7 18:46, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

Chibi-Zidane, rather cute. Chibi-ish Auron? Somehow kinda scary. King of Noobs 12:26, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

Blue... I don't think Auron's hand is injured, as we can see him using that arm in a cutscene in Luca Stadium. It's like how some samurai think they'll look cool wearing yukata like that. You can see many samurai in anime/movies doing the same. Like this. Monterossa (talk) 12:52, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

Err... anyone going to update this? I think this has been forgotten yet again... Crashb2007 (talk) 03:03, June 13, 2016 (UTC)

Not updating weekly content on time is one of the pillars on which the wiki operates. Cat (meowhunt) 06:16, June 13, 2016 (UTC)
A DNC update is never late or early, it arrives exactly when it is intended to. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 08:42, June 13, 2016 (UTC)

Week 392: Red Dead Rhyming Week: Auron vs. Vincent

DNC Versus
In celebration of the release of the FFX remaster on steam, here is a fight featuring Auron versus his red dead compatriot Vincent.

Now, I wanted to have a pure FFX fight, but there were no good other undead people in FFX to pair with Auron. Yes, I know that half of the NPCs are undead in FFX, but most of them are total losers and not fit for this noble arena. Vincent is less of a loser than people like Seymour or Mika or that old guy who lectures you on the road, so he gets to be in this fight today. Yes, I am aware that he is a moron in his terrible sequel, but Auron has it much worse: his daughter stars in some terrible audio drama that features zombie shoopufs and Sin returning for no goddamn reason. Coincidentally, you can listen to it as part of the remaster. If you want, I guess. It's less of a time commitment than FFX-2, at least.

  4. One of the coolest old men in video game history. King of Noobs 21:46, May 23, 2016 (UTC)
  5. I'd love to give Vincent a vote because I love his character, but I like Auron more.Free bird (talk) 00:40, May 24, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Vincent is one of my favourite VII characters, but Auron is more badass and not as brooding than him. ZidaneSilverfield 13:54, May 24, 2016 (UTC)
