On American Ninja Warrior competitions, Last Man Standing (officially as Last Ninja(s) Standing) refers to the American competitor who made the furthest than any other competitor during Las Vegas national finals (or SASUKE tournaments during the first three American Ninja Warrior seasons).
Starting on American Ninja Warrior 10, the competitor who became the Last Man Standing (but didn't achieve total victory) would receive the cash prize of $100,000. Drew Drechsel achieved the feat of Last Man Standing in three seasons, the most in American Ninja Warrior history so far.
