Hang on as the colossus will shake its head trying to get you off. Keep plunging the sword until its defeated.

Hard Mode
Follow the same process as before. When you get on top of the colossus, go for the shoulders. The colossus does move a lot, so trying to hold onto the shoulders and stab is pretty difficult. But, as the symbol isn't that far down on the shoulder, when you are running low on stamina/grip, you can simply jump onto it's back to rest a bit. When done with both shoulders make your way to the next and plunge the sword there until it is defeated.

Colossus 10: Fight
Weak Spots: Eyes and Back
Hard Mode Weak Spots: No new ones

This is fight is easier if on your horse. Run around the field and keep your arrow pointed back.

Once stunned, jump on the colossus's back and find the symbol in the middle. Keep plunging your sword into the symbol until the colossus moves again.

Guardian Unleashed
Defeat 11th Colossus

This is story related. Can not be missed.

This colossus takes you to the back of the shrine. Head to the back and cross the bridge and take the upper path to the field. Cross the field into the desert. The colossus is “below “ you. Look around and you will see that in the hole in the ground, to the one side is a path leading down. Take the path down to the bottom. At the bottom you will see a large room, so go inside of it and jump across the small gap.

Colossus 11: Fight
Weak Spots: Back (after you remove the armor)
Hard Mode Weak Spots: No new ones

As soon as you get to the other side look for the platforms with the fire on top. Hurry and get in the gap between the wall and platform and start climbing to the flame. Once up there the colossus will ram the wall, making a piece of wood fall. Quickly, and I mean quickly jump down (make sure the hand tool is selected) and grab the wood. Get back to the gap in the wall and climb back up. Once up there again, swing the wood into the fire to light it up. Jump down and scare the colossus off the far edge. (it won't attack you as long as the wood is lit, it will go out so make it quick) Once the colossus falls off the edge, its armor on its back breaks, leaving the symbol opened for attacks. Jump down and then onto its back where you will plunge your sword in until the colossus is dead.

Silent Thunder
Defeat 12th Colossus

This is story related. Can not be missed.

This one is found in the Northeastern side of the temple. So go around the back of the temple about half way (use your sword as guidance too)and cross the bridge. Go into the forest and turn to the right quick and find the way out. You should end up over by some waterfalls. Save at the save point just in case you die, you won't have to travel all the way here again. Jump onto the pillar and shimmy around to the other side where you will drop down and go up the path. When the path ends, jump into the water and swim to the little “islands”. The colossus will now come out.


Colossus 12: Fight
Weak Spots: Under belly
Hard Mode Weak Spots: No new ones

You need to make your way to the back end of the colossus. This requires you to swim around him (the camera angling sucks). Once behind him, use his tail to climb to his back then up to his head. Use the teeth on top of his head to steer him towards one of the rock buildings. This is done by simply hitting the right side to go right, left to go left and center to go straight. Once you are close enough a building, jump off onto it and take cover as the colossus will shoot at you. Once the colossus raises up and puts his feet up on the building, run and jump to his underbelly and hold on. Use your sword to plunge into the symbol. Eventually the colossus will get down and you will have to repeat the process. He does destroy the building after, so you will need to direct him to a different one. Keep doing the process until the colossus is defeated.

Signs in the Sky
Defeat 13th Colossus

This is story related. Can not be missed.

From the Shrine, head South and go through the woods. Use the western exit of the woods and take the path down. Go to the desert located southeastern of you and start running until you come to a small little “island”. Here you will only see what was left of something standing. Walk through it and wait for the colossus to come.

Colossus 13: Fight
Weak Spots: 3 Balloon pockets on the underbelly and 3 symbols under the flaps on its back
Hard Mode Weak Spots: No new ones

This one takes some time. You must first wait for the colossus to fly over you (or use Agro to get underneath it). Then be fast to get your bow and arrow out to shoot the three balloon pockets underneath it to make the colossus get low to the ground. By doing this the colossus uses it's wings to glide across the sand. You can either use Agro to ride up to the wings and try to jump, or you can run, wait for the colossus to get near you and jump and hold onto the wings. When the colossus goes back up in the air, run across the wing and onto its back. You will see three flaps on the back, under the wings are the symbols. One by one, go to each flap and plunge your sword into the symbol until it disappears. The colossus will eventually go under the sand, so be fast to jump off to avoid injury. Then repeat the process until you have defeated the colossus.

Shielded Guardian
Defeat 14th Colossus

This is story related. Can not be missed.

This is one of the hardest colossus to find. He is found in the West. You need to exit the Shrine and go across the bridge in the western side. After you are on the other side of the bridge, head North. Look for a path in the mountains and enter. Take the path in the mountains and go left when you find the fork in the path. The second fork you want to take a right and keep following it until you reach a cave. Enter the cave and swim across the water and get up on the other side. Follow the pathway here until you reach a wide courtyard. Jump off the first ledge, then find the small hole in the wall. Now look around for the pillar that is down and use it to get up into the courtyard.

Colossus 14: Fight
Weak Spots: Back after armor is removed
Hard Mode Weak Spots: No new ones

There is a lot you have to go to get the armor off this colossus. At the start you will see a pillar lying down next to you. Jump on the pillar then to the ledge. From the ledge make it over to the standing pillar and climb to the top. The colossus must ram the pillar twice. So once at the top hold on to it because the colossus will ram it. Then use your bow and arrow to get it's attention again so that it rams it a second time making it fall over. Once knocked over, use the fallen pillar to get to the next ledge then to the next pillar and follow the same process. When you get to the Shrine, climb up and shimmy around the side to jump to the final pillar. When the colossus knocks this one over, a cut scene will activate showing you the pillar falling through the wall. Once this has happened, hurry up and make it to the wall to the left and climb fast. If the colossus gets you before you are out of reach it is a sure thing you are dead. Once you are out of reach, follow the walkway till you reach the platform (it has a couple of rocks on it). Get the attention of the colossus so that he rams it making the platform fall. This will crash onto the colossus removing his armor and revealing the symbol on his back. Now make it over to the pillar that had fell through the wall earlier. Wait for the colossus to try and ram it as it will stun him. Once stunned, jump on his back and start to plunge your sword into his back. Do this process a few times until the colossus is defeated.

Valley of the Fallen
Defeat 15th Colossus

This is story related. Can not be missed.

Go behind the Shrine and go across the bridge. This colossus is in the North. Go through the desert and then turn East. Look at the mountains and find the part that is cut out a bit. Go over to it and enter (you can't bring your horse). Go through the entrance tunnel until you get to the stairs. Go up the stairs and go through the arch way at the top. You now find yourself by an area. Go through the arch way and find the colossus.

Colossus 15: Fight
Weak Spots: Head, hand and arm (the hairy side)
Hard Mode Weak Spots: Head, hand, arm and chest (left side)

This one takes several steps to even be able to reach his head.
  1. You will notice all the ledges that are just out of reach from you. Look closer for the one ledge that is a bit lower than the others. Go over and stand in front of it and wait for the colossus to come over. As he raises his foot, dodge the stomp and quickly get up. You will notice where his foot landed, the tile is lifted a bit, so jump to the tile to reach the ledge.
  2. From here, run to about the middle and start shooting the colossus with some arrows. This will anger him making him swing his sword. The roof will collapse, leaving some blocks down so you can use them to get to the next level.
  3. Once on the next level, run to the end until you see the stairs. The stairs lead you up to the next level.
  4. On the next level run to the end until you reach the pathway that leads across to the other side. Go a bit onto the pathway and wait for the colossus to come over. Run back to the ledge as the colossus will break the pathway.
  5. Go to the edge of the broken pathway and wait. The colossus will walk over to you, so wait for him to get close enough then jump on his head.
Once on his head, start plunging the sword into the symbol. When the symbol disappears make your way down his hairy shoulder (if you take the other shoulder you will fall as there is nothing to grab). Be sure to rest around the shoulder area so that you do not end up falling due to low stamina. On his arm will be a small weak spot and once you hit it he will drop his sword.

Jump down now to the ground as the weak spot is in his hand. Run around and try to make him hit the ground. When he hits the ground,hurry up and grab his hand on the inside. Keep plunging the sword into his palm where the symbol is to finally defeat the colossus.

Hard ModeSame as before, follow steps 1-5. After you have destroyed the symbol in the colossus's head, make your way to the left side of his chest. This can be very difficult as there is a lot of movement on the chest. To rest, climb back up to the shoulder to gain more stamina. Once the chest is done then go for the arm, then the hand.

Final Colossus
Defeat 16th Colossus

This is story related. Can not be missed.

Right as you exit the Shrine, go straight, go past the tree and turn left just a bit. Enter the mountain and exit to the right. In the field keep going to the South and look for a small path down the cliff. All the way to the south you will see a door with a hole in it. Go up to the door and use your sword to shine light into the light. This will open the doors. Take your horse and ride up the stairs and cross the bridge. A cut scene will activate and you will lose your horse. You must now travel alone. At the end of the bridge you will need to climb up the wall, so grab the first ledge and go up to the area above. Use the plants on the wall to get to the next level. You will soon get to an area where it would appear to be a dead end, but look over to see the column you can climb. Here starts the last fight.

Colossus 16: Fight
Weak Spots: Back, Hand, mid arm, left hand, left shoulder, head
Hard Mode Weak Spots: No new ones

This is the most complex fight of all the colossus. His main attack when trying to reach him is the fireballs he shoots at you. Be sure to dodge them as they do a lot of damage.
  1. As soon as you go up the little ramp heading towards the colossus, run to the left and take cover. After he has shot at you, go to the hole in the ground to the right.
  2. Go through the tunnel till you reach the opening at the other end BUT do not exit yet. Wait for the colossus to finish shooting fireballs, then jump out and hide behind the wall. Go from wall to wall when it is clear to run, and jump into the other hole in the ground.
  3. Go through the tunnel till you get to the end and get out. You will need to follow the little walkway until you get to the ledge (circular) and shimmy around it. Wait for the colossus to shoot, and then make a god for the wall and hide behind it.
  4. To the right is the final hole in the ground. Make your way over to it and jump down. This tunnel leads you right underneath the colossus.
  5. Start climbing the back of the colossus now. You will need to climb, walk, climb, walk and so on to reach your destination spots.
  6. When you reach the middle (torso) , go around until you find the hairy spot. Jump onto the ledge then to the hairy spot to find the first weak spot. Use your sword to plunge it in. His hand will come around to the back of him now.
  7. When the hand is near jump back onto it. Hold on, and then make your way to the top of it to stab it. This makes him pause for a moment giving you the chance to run up his forearm to the next weak spot.
  8. Plunge your sword into his arm and wait for his other and to now come over by you. Jump to the hand and make your way to the top of it. Plunge your sword into his hand to make him pause again.
  9. The next spot is out of reach, so use your bow and arrow to shoot his shoulder. This will make him bring his hand over his shoulder giving you the chance to jump on his shoulder.
  10. From his shoulder, make your way to the top of his head. Start plunging the sword into the symbol there. Watch your stamina meter as it would be a shame to fall now and have to do it all over again. If you need to, from his head, go down a bit to safe spot where shaking isn't that bad to gain some more stamina. Keep stabbing his head until he is defeated.

Climber
Reached top of the shrine

This trophy is best to wait till you have collected/eaten enough Shiny Lizards tails to raise your stamina/grip. Around the back of the main start off temple there is some green fern growing on the wall. Use the fern to start climbing up. You need A LOT of stamina/grip as the journey up is long. You just have to reach the secret garden to get this trophy. Your stamina meter (the pink circle on the bottom right of the screen) needs to be pretty big to get to the stop. So try to max it out before starting the journey up as you will probably not make it that far without it. Maxing it out requires you to have beaten the colossus's at least 4-5 times along with the shiny lizards tails. There is absolutely not resting areas during this climb, that is why is it recommended to have a maxed out stamina meter for this.

Hang Glider
Hang onto the hawk for more than 30 seconds

You do have enough grip until at least after you have defeated the 7th colossus (you might have more depending on how many lizards tails you have eaten). Or on your New Game +

When you find a spot, wait for a hawk to fly down low enough and grab it by pressing and . Continue to hold for 30 seconds. When you let go or run out of stamina, the trophy will pop if you have held on for 30 seconds.

There is a great spot in D-5. In D-5 there are a group of rocks right by the Save Shrine. These groups of rocks over look a cliff, so stand right in between two of them and wait for the hawk to come down. Grab as soon as it gets close enough to you. If you have enough stamina then you should be able to hold on until the hawk goes by the rocks again causing you to hit into the side of the cliff and falling. When you hit the ground the trophy will pop.

This is just one of the easiest spots. There are several around the land. You just have to find one that works. The hawks usually follow a circular pattern, so if you see one fly down before you get to the spot, just stand in the spot and wait for it to come back.

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

Missable

After you have defeated the last Colossus's a cut scene will activate. Once you are in small human form, the light will try to drag you in. You can keep trying to run from it it but it will keep pulling you back. Let it take you back to the door way where the stairs are and hold to grab the stairs. Keep holding on until your grip is.

YOU NEED TO GO INTO THE LIGHT AT THE END FOR THE TROPHY TO POP.

Collector
Acquire all items available in normal time attack

Glitched

So there is a small glitch with this trophy. You must complete them all in one playthrough. If you defeat lets say 8 of them, and then go on to NG++ you will notice that it does tell you that you have beaten this one or that one. It's wrong. You have to do them again for it to count. Pretty silly but yea. So be sure you get them all in one shot.

Normal time attack unlocks once you have beat the Normal Playthrough. When you load up your game, load up the last save from the previous saves, thus putting you into New Game +. Go up to any of the Colossus Statues and press . It will ask you if you would like to start the time attack, so of course press yes. You need to defeat the colossus in the time given to you (go to each colossus trophy to see how to beat them). Complete two of the time attacks and go the the pool by the stairs in the back of the Shrine for an item.

The hardest thing about the time attacks besides the time, is the fact you have the stats as if you just started the game. Low stamina and low Hp.

On your way to the 8th colossus you will come to a point where you need to swim to the building. Get into the water and dive with . You will see long black fish swimming in the water. Grab a hold of one with and hold on for 30 seconds. They can be a bit irritating sometimes as they can get away from your grip.

Agro Circus
Perform all stunt riding using Agro

The horse you have through out the game is Agro. You may NOT need all of these though, I am uncertain of which ones count, so it is best to do them all to be safe.


Select the hand and stand by Agro. Press to pet.
Use to get up on Agro's back then while having the hand selected, press to pet.
Run away from Agro, and then call the horse. The horse will run past you so run after the horse, jump with and then to get up on the back.
Get on the horse and press to make it move. Once moving hold and up on the left analog stick.
To fully stop the horse, as you are moving quickly hold down on the left analog stick and press
You need to ride Agro on the left side of the saddle. Hold then then left on the analog stick all at the same time.
You need to ride Agro on the right side of the saddle as well. Hold an the left analog stick to the right,
To do a full go, completely stop Agro by holding the left analog stick down and pressing . This same tactic works for the full go, hold down the left analog stick and hit
A jumping dismount is easy. As you are riding Agro, just hit to jump off.
The 180 turn can be tricky, the easiest way to do it is while riding, hit down on the left analog stick then then down again and
For a long jump, you need to find a little hill or something the Agro will jump. The horse will not jump if something is to high. Just run around on the horse and jump off a little hill.

Cornucopia
Acquired all fruits in the world

There are a total of 128 pieces of fruit throughout the land. There is an additional 48 fruit in the secret garden at the top of the Shrine that you must eat as well. (see Climber to see how to get there)

The 128 fruit that increases your Hp can be found throughout the land. Look at the trees carefully to see the fruit hanging there. Use your bow and arrow to shoot them down. When they fall to the ground, go over to them and press to pick them up.

There is a small glitch here sometimes. Sometimes the fruit will hit the ground and seem to have disappeared. All you have to do is go and stand over the spot where it fell and hit .

Colors of the fruit can be yellow, orange and brown. The forbidden fruit is red though in the secret garden.


This can be done easier once you complete normal playthrough and the normal time attacks. After doing so you will get a fruit tree map that shows you where all the trees are. You must collect all fruit inONE playthrough for it to count

Tower of Prayer
Save at all save points

This list is given on how it appears on the map when you press . The X-axis is your numbers and the Y-axis is your letters. They are not in order though. So when reading it make sure to remember that. For the most part, they all pretty much stand out. When you come to a shrine, look for the sparkling side of the wall and press to save. There are a total of 25 save shrines (not saves after colossus fights).

Endangered Lizards
Killed all shining lizards

There is a total of 77 shiny lizards throughout the land. You can tell these lizards apart from others because their tails are white. When you spot one you need to cut its tail off (you can use the bow and arrow to shoot too). Once the tail is off you MUST go over to the tail and eat it. This will raise your Hp. These lizards may look different, but they are harder to find as they like to hide and scatter.

If you complete the first run on Normal and complete the Normal Time attacks, you will be rewarded with a Lizard Detection Stone. This makes it a whole lot easier to find the lizards.

You must find/kill/eat all 77 lizard tails in ONE playthrough for it to count.

You will also notice with the Lizard Detection Stone that there can sometimes be multiple lizards on one Save Shrine. After you have killed one, run away a good distance then head back, the next one will be there. Repeat this process if needed as there can be 2-3 at one Save Shrine.

*Note* When using the arrow to kill the lizard, it can sometimes disappear off the map. If this happens and you did not collect the tail, just simply save the game at a Save Shrine and then reload the save data. This will make the lizard reappear so you can collect the tail.

All lizards can be found without defeating the colossus EXCEPT 3 of them found in F-8. You will need to defeat 15 colossus to unlock the gate leading to the the 16th colossus. There are 3 lizards behind the gate around the Save Shrine.

Stalwart Wander
Max out HP bar

There are two way to max out your Hp.
  1. When you defeat each colossus your Hp will rise a bit.
  2. The fruit you find in the trees throughout the land. The fruit can be difficult to see due to the fact they are up in the trees you find. The more fruit you collect the more Hp is given to you.
Fruit can be easier found if you wait until you beat the normal time attacks as one of the rewards is a Fruit Tree map, showing the location of all fruit trees throughout the land. (you must first defear 10 colossus to receive this award)

Mighty Wander
Max out stamina bar

There are two ways to max out your stamina
  1. Defeating each colossus raises your stamina up. (4-5 times doing NG +)
  2. Finding, killing and eating the shiny lizard tails. They can be found throughout the land but can be a bit difficult as there are also other lizards. The shiny ones how ever have white tails, so they do stand out a bit more.
To solely rely on eating lizards tails can take a while. Combine eating the tails and defeating the colossus. Another easy way...well faster way is to start new game + and defeat the 16 colossus again. You need to do this at least 4-5 times to get it maxed out.

Finding the lizards can be easier when you have completed the time attacks and get the Lizard Detection Stone.
