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 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 Fights from previous weeks that have not yet been archived are closed to voting, although you may still comment on them if you wish.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.
Magicite Madness IV
The wiki's triannual tournament, Magicite Madness, has returned for a fourth time! As a result, new polls will be up every 3 days until the Elimination rounds are complete. Also, you must log in for your votes to count.
For archives, additional rules, and further scheduling details, see the project page.
Some interesting notes on just who made it to these last few rounds. Of the 32 remaining competitors (we started with 512), we have:
9 (28%) are from Ivalice
6 (19%) are symbols of the series as a whole
3 (10%) each are from FFVII, FFIX, and FFX
2 (6%) are from FFVI
1 (3%) each is from Type-0, Bravely, and Mobius
and none others from any other games. In particular, almost the entire squad is from the FFVI-FFX era or Ivalice. This probably reflects the average age of an FFWikier more than anything, but huh. Cat (meow ∙ hunt) 00:24, October 15, 2017 (UTC)
Old Magicite Madness fights should be viewed at the schedule.
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.
