The 12th Colossus is ready and waiting, are you? This walkthrough will guide you through How To Defeat The 12th Colossus In Shadow Of Colossus so you can take down another creature of colossulness and move on to the next target on your hit list.
This one can be quite difficult. Hell, I struggled finding the 12th Colossus. Once you’ve found it, there’s a very specific technique to bringing this one down. As soon as it arrives swim directly behind it. It’s faster to swim under the water as he turns slower and sometimes you can get a free push when he is turning. From his back you can mount his fur and climb to his head.
On his head is a crown of teeth like objects. A set on the left, a set on the right and a set down the middle. These each correspond to a direction. Hit the left teeth to make it turn left, right teeth to make it turn right and the center teeth to make it go forward. You need to direct it to one of the two large ruins in the water. Once you are close enough jump onto the roof of these ruins.
Once on the roof he will launch an electrical attack from its head. Stand behind the small circular part of the building that sticks up. After that it will pull back and then lunge onto the platform, you can’t get hurt here so just stand on the small overlook on the edge. Once his front legs are on the building you can see the weak point in his stomach. Jump on, do your thing. Repeat a second time with the other building. Job done.
