Section 2. Introduction

Section 2.1 Introduction

Shadow of the Colossus is a HD upgrade of the game that originally came out in 2005. While certain things were lacking in the North American release, everything that was in the game in other regions are here. If you've played it back on PS2 you'll find that everything is exactly where it was before. The only change in the game is miniscule but can make earning all the trophies a exercise in frustration. Many of the trophies are simple to achieve and require a little skill, but the few will put your patience to the test.

Sheath weapon

Section 3. Walkthrough

Section 3.1 Normal Story Mode

Begin a new game and work your way through the 16 different colossi. You can kill all 77 lizards on this playthrough but it will be more difficult without the Detection Stone you earn from the Time Attacks. Skip collecting the fruit as you won't be able to earn the trophy for them until you greatly increase your stamina gauge. You should however search the land for all 25 Save Temples and save your game at each one for the related trophy. Once you open up the final area use the final save temple and defeat the final colossus. If you missed any missable trophy don't worry too much about it, you'll be playing through the game a few more times.

Valley of the Fallen

Slippery Ride
The Forbidden
Agro Circus
Resistance (Missable)
Tower of Prayer (Missable)
Endangered Lizards (Missable)


Section 3.2 Normal Time Attack


Load up the save you made after the credits rolled. You're now in a New Game + Mode and from here you can go through the Time Attack of each Colossi. Some Time Attacks are easy and others are hard, but stick with it. After defeating all 16 Time Attacks you can get all 8 items in the pool at the back of the temple. With all 8 items earned save your game and exit out to the Main Menu.

Trophies Earned
Collector


Section 3.3 Hard Story Mode

With the game beaten on Normal Mode, Hard Mode becomes selectable at the main menu. Choose Hard Mode and play all the way through the game, DO NOT at any point overwrite your normal mode post-game save. As the name suggests, the game is harder as every colossus takes more damage to kill and some have additional weak points you must destroy. If you missed either of the missable trophies on your first playthrough, you can earn them on this one. Make it through all 16 colossi and the final part of the game, once the credits roll be sure to save your game.

Trophies Earned
Wander and the Forbidden


Section 3.4 Hard Time Attack

Load up the save you made after the credits rolled on your Hard playthrough. Just like with the Normal Time Attack, you'll have to fight your way through all 16 colossi again but with their Hard Mode stats. This is the most difficult part of the game and can take many hours as some colossi require you to be very fast and some are very dependent on luck. If you make it through all 16 on their Hard Time Attack you'll have the hardest part behind you.

Trophies Earned
Meticulous Collector


Section 3.5 Subsequent playthroughs

Load up your Normal Time Attack save and if you don't have all the items, you should have them before doing this part. Race through the game and kill all 16 colossi again; if you have not earned the trophy for killing all the lizards, now is the time to get it. Colossi reward health and stamina better so focus on killing them and once you've beaten the game again, sit through the credits and save your game. If you only collected all lizard tails once, you'll have to play through the game 3 more times to earn maximum stamina. You can collect every lizard tail on every playthrough but it's much quicker to focus on the bosses and let your stamina increase from there. Once you have maximum stamina you'll need to collect all 128 pieces of fruit on the map. With maximum grip and all fruit eaten, head back to Dormin's Temple and climb to the secret garden at the top of the temple. Once you're at the top, collect all 48 pieces of fruit for your final trophy.

Slippery Ride
Hang onto the fish for over 30 seconds

In various lakes around the area are big fish which swim around. I can't say for certain how many lizard tails you might need, but you will have enough grip after defeating 7 colossi. Go to a lake with a fish (one at C-3, another at G-6) and position yourself right above one. Hold and let the fish drag you around until your grip runs out. If you held on long enough the trophy will pop after you let go.



Hang Glider
Hang onto the hawk for over 30 seconds

There are numerous hawks flying around all over the land. I can't say for certain how many lizard tails you might need, but you will have enough grip after defeating 7 colossi. You can try to jump from Agro and grab a hawk but that method is random and difficult; so head to grid D-5 and find the save temple. Slightly south of the temple is a drop off with a few stones at the edge. A hawk will fly directly over the middle stone, so wait for it and hold when it flies by; let it drag you around until your grip runs out. If you held on long enough the trophy will pop after you let go.

The Forbidden
Clear the game in normal difficulty

Go through the game and defeat all 16 colossi. After the last colossi is dead you have the end game sequence to go through. Once that is over the final scene and credits will play. Make it through the credits to the post game save screen to earn this trophy.

See each individual colossus trophy for details on how to defeat them.


Wander and the Forbidden
Clear the game in hard difficulty

This trophy is just like The Forbidden, but you must defeat all 16 colossi on Hard Mode which is more difficult and is available after beating the game on Normal Mode. Go through the game and you'll earn this trophy at the post game save screen.

See each individual colossus trophy for details on how to defeat them.


Resistance
Endure being sucked into the light for over 1 minute in the ending

After defeating the 16th colossi you will be put into the ending scenario. Once Wander is back to human size and the light starts sucking you in, you must hold out for at least 60 seconds before falling victim to the light. You can try running away but Wander will be tripped and sucked towards the light. Hold and when Wander flies by the staircase he will grab onto it; hold onto the staircase until his grip runs out. This trophy is missable but does not require a massive amount of grip; I obtained this trophy on my first playthrough and I did not earn a single lizard tail.


Tower of Prayer
Save at all save points

This trophy is missable but thankfully it involves saving your game so you can always make an easy reload. There are 25 save temples in the game, one of which only becomes available at the end of the game. You must kneel and save at every single save temple in a single playthrough.
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)


Agro Circus
Perform all stunt riding using Agro

This trophy has proven to be a little finicky but not enough to be warranted as glitched. To earn this trophy you must perform various tricks while riding Agro.

Pet Agro = While standing near Agro's head or in her saddle, have your hands empty and press to pet her.
*You must pet Agro while seated in the saddle and standing next to her.

Quick Start = From a dead stop press +, Agro should rare up then take off into a gallop.

Quick Stop = From a gallop press +, Agro should drag her hind quarters across the ground to a quick stop.

Quick Turn = From a gallop press + twice, Agro should drag her hind quarters like the Quick Stop but then quickly turn around.

Stand and Ride = From a canter or gallop hold +, Wander should stand up completely.

Hang Left = From a canter or gallop hold + and press , Wander should hang down to the left side of the saddle.

Hang Right = From a canter or gallop hold + and press , Wander should hang down to the right side of the saddle.

Agro Jump = Agro can jump off small cliffs or other terrain, find a spot and have her gallop towards it; if she can jump it she will.

Jump from Agro = Anytime you're mounted on Agro, press and Wander will jump off her.

You can have Agro keep her momentum by holding after getting her up to speed.


Collector
Acquire all items available in normal time attack

To reach normal time attack mode you need to beat the game on normal mode and have a save file after the credits roll. Load that save and you'll be in a New Game +. In Dormin's Temple, approach any of the 16 statues and press . Wander will kneel down and you will be asked if you wish to attempt the Time Attack; say yes and kill the boss within the target time. Every time you accomplish two Time Attack scores, an item will appear in the shallow pool at the back of the temple. Complete all 16 Time Attacks and pick up all 8 items to earn this trophy. Time Attack Mode will have Wander's stats at the bare minimum of what they would've been during the story and you cannot use any earned items against the Time Attack Colossi.

You have 4 item slots that can be customized; Face (Mask), Body (Cloak), Sword and Bow.

Items available in Normal Time Attack
2 - Whistling Arrow; this item distracts colossi if you shoot an arrow past their body.

4 - Cloak of Force; this item increases your attack power, letting you kill colossi faster.

6 - Mask of Strength; this item increases your attack power, letting you kill colossi faster.

8 - Lizard Detection Stone; this item will show white-tailed lizards on your map if you're close to them.

10 - Fruit Tree Map; this item will show all 128 fruit items scattered around the world.
*This item will not show any Forbidden Fruit.

12 - Mask of Power; this item increases your attack power, letting you kill colossi faster.
*This mask is stronger than the Mask of Strength.

14 - Cloak of Deception; this item conceals your presence from colossi.

16 - Flash Arrow; this item lets your arrows do much more damage to a colossi.
*You will still need to stab their symbols to kill them.

After collecting all 8 items you can change Agro's color to brown by holding while selecting your game mode at the main menu.

WARNING: There is a small glitch in the game that was carried over from the PS2. You have to defeat all 16 Time Attacks on a single game. If you defeat 1 or more but less than 16 then beat the game and come back on the next cycle you will glitch the game. On the second cycle the game will show you beating the Time Attack, but you will have to go through all the Time Attacks you've already cleared to earn all the items, so it is best to clear all Time Attacks on one playthrough.

See each individual trophy for Colossi tactics.

Meticulous Collector
Acquire all items available in hard time attack

To reach hard time attack mode you need to beat the game on hard mode and have a save file after the credits roll. Load that save and you'll be in a New Game +. In Dormin's Temple, approach any of the 16 statues and press . Wander will kneel down and you will be asked if you wish to attempt the Time Attack; say yes and kill the boss within the target time. Every time you accomplish two Time Attack scores, an item will appear in the shallow pool at the back of the temple. Complete all 16 Time Attacks and pick up all 8 items to earn this trophy. Time Attack Mode will have Wander's stats at the bare minimum of what they would've been during the story and you cannot use any earned items against the Time Attack Colossi.

You have 4 item slots that can be customized; Face (Mask), Body (Cloak), Sword and Bow.

Items available in Hard Time Attack
2 - Harpoon of Thunder; this is a sword item but let's you project them like arrows.

4 - Sword of Sun; this sword will let you focus sunlight while even being in a darkened area.

6 - Fruit Tree Map; this item will show all 128 fruit items scattered around the world.
*This item will not show any Forbidden Fruit.

8 - Shaman's Cloak; this item will reduce all damage from colossi attacks.

10 - Lizard Detection Stone; this item will show white-tailed lizards on your map if you're close to them.

12 - Shaman's Mask; this item will reduce all damage from colossi attacks.

14 - Cloak of Desperation; this item will allow Wander to float slowly to the ground when falling.

16 - Queen's Sword; the most powerful weapon in the game, it can destroy a symbol in one hit.

After collecting all 8 items and saving your game, you can change Agro's color to white by holding while selecting your game mode at the main menu.

WARNING: There is a small glitch in the game that was carried over from the PS2. You have to defeat all 16 Time Attacks on a single game. If you defeat 1 or more but less than 16 then beat the game and come back on the next cycle you will glitch the game. On the second cycle the game will show you beating the Time Attack, but you will have to go through all the Time Attacks you've already cleared to earn all the items, so it is best to clear all Time Attacks on one playthrough.

See each individual trophy for Colossi tactics.


Endangered Lizards
Killed all shining lizards

There are an infinite amount of lizards crawling around in the game, but only 77 shining lizards. You can easily identify a shining lizard as its tail is white and not black like the rest of its body. Unlike the normal lizards, these ones prefer to hide and so it can be difficult to track them down. This is much easier to do once you beaten the main game and obtained the Lizard Detection Stone from the Time Attacks. You must kill all 77 of the shining lizards in a single playthrough for this trophy.

See the Shining Lizard Guide for specific details.


Stalwart Wanderer
Max out HP bar

There are two ways to gain HP in this game; one is by defeating the colossi and the other is by finding the fruit scattered around the land. The fruit is up in trees and can be difficult to see or even know it's there, but you can get a Fruit Tree Map from the Time Attack which will highlight every piece of fruit on your in game map. You can earn this trophy by the end of your first playthrough by collecting most of the fruit. However you'll need to beat the game several times and defeating all the colossi will help you max out your health, so to save time ignore the fruit until you're ready to earn the Cornucopia trophy.


Mighty Wanderer
Maxed out stamina bar

There are two ways to gain stamina in this game; one if by defeating the colossi and the other is by eating the tails of shining lizards. You can gain tails from white-tailed lizards when going for the Endangered Lizard trophy. While gaining white lizard tails does help, hunting lizards is a lot slower then defeating the colossi in the game. It may take more playthroughs, but defeating colossi will save you time. If you eat every shining lizard tail in the game once, you should earn this trophy at the end of your fourth playthrough.

Lizard Tail Exploit
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)



Climber
Reached the top of the shrine

The shrine the game is talking about is Dormin's Temple. On the back of the temple is a large growth of vines, if you have enough stamina you can actually climb to the top of the temple to a secret garden. There was an exploit in the PS2 version but it was removed in this game. They also removed any resting points so you will need to have a lot of stamina to reach the top. I advise doing this trophy once you have maximum stamina, so you know you can make it to the top. Once you're done climbing turn to your left and go up the stairs to the garden to earn this trophy.



Cornucopia
Acquired all fruits in the world

This trophy isn't just talking about the fruit that increases your HP. On the top of Dormin's Temple is a secret garden with 48 pieces of forbidden fruit growing on it (see Climber on how to get there). Eating this fruit will reduce you stamina and health which you will spend a great deal increasing. To earn this trophy you will need to eat all 128 pieces of HP increasing fruit and all 48 pieces of stamina decreasing fruit so be sure to save before you climb to the garden.

There are 128 fruit across the land but only 33 marks on your map, which means there are multiple pieces of fruit in the area. When hunting the fruit around the land there is a chance it will fall into the ground. You can still collect the fruit by standing where it landed. If you cannot find it, leave the area and then go back to find it back on the tree. The fruit that increases your health comes in a variety of looks; Yellow Banana, Orange Persimmon, and Brown Pineapple while the Forbidden Fruit looks like giant Red Cherries.

IMPORTANT: There are two pieces of fruit on a tree in E-5. When you shoot them off the tree they fall down over a cliff. It is safe for you to fall down the cliff and still claim the fruit.

The Forbidden Fruit on top of Dormin's Temple can be very difficult to find. The fruit can also change colors if you reload your game. They're easier to find when they're a lighter color and do not blend in with the tree leaves.

The 128 fruit are shown as the yellow marks on the map.

I'm confused about maxing out stamina and health. Is there a new game + where your stats carry over, and do they not carry over to hard mode?

There is a New Game + but only on a specific save file.

I'm a little scatterbrained right now (doing about 5 things at once) but I'll try to break it down to you.

You start a fresh New Game and beat it, you save your game after the credits and you are now in your first New Game +. All White-Tailed Lizards are back, all fruit is back and all 16 colossi are back but you still have your stats from when you beat the game. You can go out and eat lizard tails and fruit and go kill the colossi again. Now after the credits you save you game again, now load that game. You'll be back at the start of the game (all lizards, fruit, colossi) and your stats will be what they were at the end of your second playthrough.

Hard Mode is its own separate entity, you can't go from Normal to Hard Mode. When you start Hard Mode, you have the tiny grip and tiny health Wander. Go eat stuff and kill colossi to beef him up.

Personally you give around what rating in difficulty for the Platinum?

Do you plan on doing a guide for ICO?
