Shadow of the Colossus PS3 Trophy guide

Valley Wanderer


Defeat 1st Colossus

Simply leap onto the back of the left leg and stab the calf. The colossus will kneel, allowing you to climb up the leg, then up the back and onto the head, where you’ll find the weakness.

The Sloth


Defeat 2nd Colossus

Get behind the colossus. Shoot an arrow at the bottom of one of the feet as it walks. Climb up the rear leg when the beast kneels, then head for the weak spots on its head and rear.

Disturbed Sleep


Defeat 3rd Colossus

Lead the colossus around the arena until you can get it to smash its sword into the central stone platform. The shock will break the armor of the colossus. Now wait for the colossus to swing and hit dirt, then climb up the sword, up the arm, and onto the head. Stab this weak point until it disappears, then look for the final weak point on the stomach.

Path of Gravestones


Defeat 4th Colossus

Run to the furthest small hill and coax the colossus with arrows. Once it gets near, hop down and into the cave. Simply wait here while it stomps around. Eventually it will lower its head to investigate, and you can leap out of the cave and grab onto its - for lack of a better word - earrings. From here you can climb onto the top of its head and finish the beast off. 

Aerial Dance


Defeat 5th Colossus

Swim to the middle of the lake and hop onto one of the small square platforms. Fire an arrow at the colossus and it will fly straight for you. Simply jump and hold the grab button to hitch a ride. Its weak points are at the ends of its wings and the tip of its tail. Should you fall, look for another small square platform and repeat.

    Not going to read a bit of this right now, but it's deffinatly going to be saved for when I buy the game! Thank you GamesRadar *bows* you have helped me in my quest for more trophies already. P.S reCAPTCHA = shogakukan, odyond .... indeed.

    I've played this game 4 times on PS2: Normal, Hard, and both sets of Time Trials. I have never gotten all pieces of fruit, and never killed all lizards. I never even KNEW until now that you could ride that stupid hawk (kept trying to shoot it down), OR that you could do tricks with Agro! This platinum should be equal parts fun (Colossi battles), equal parts frustration (collecting crap).

    Agh, that one for hunting all 77 lizards is going to be a pain. I usually only hunt down a handful of them per playthrough, and never more than 10. They're fast, they climb all over the save shrines, and it often takes a long time to get them to appear in a good spot if you spook them with a barely-missed shot. Then again, the trophy didn't say anything about using the explosive arrows...
