Shadow of the Colossus PS3 Trophy guide

Entombed Giant


Defeat 6th Colossus

As soon as the battle begins, run away from the colossus, climbing the barriers as you go. When you reach the back wall, wait for the head to lower and leap onto the beard. Climb up and stab the colossus in the head until the glyph disappears, then climb down to the left part of the monster’s back to find the second weakness.

Waves of Thunder


Defeat 7th Colossus

Swim around until the colossus heads to the surface to attack you. Dodge to the left or right and grab the tail when it surfaces. Hold on until you break the surface again, then make your way to the base of the first electric spike and quickly stab the beast to deactivate the spike. Repeat for the next two spikes, then move on to the head and finish the colossus off.

Wall Scaler


Defeat 8th Colossus

Climb down to the third floor - you can stay higher if your health is enough to sustain the fall - and fire at the colossus from one of the barred windows. Then move around to where the floor is destroyed, and when the colossus is investigating your last location, shoot two of its legs. The colossus will fall to the ground. Leap down on top of its belly and stab. You’ll need to repeat this at least once.

Slumbering Caveman


Defeat 9th Colossus

Draw the colossus out of its cave and onto one of the geysers. When the geyser erupts, the colossus will fall to one side. Shoot both of the exposed ankles, and the beast will roll over. Go around, climb its belly, and make your way to the head.

Unknown Tracks


Defeat 10th Colossus

Ride around on Agro until the colossus begins chasing you. At a full gallop, pull out your bow and hold L1 to more easily target the colossus. Shoot one of the eyes, and the beast will crash into the wall. Leap onto its back and stab the weak point. You’ll have to repeat this at least once.

    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...
