Arguably the easiest so far, but also one of the best. This guide will tell you How To Defeat The Fifth Colossus In Shadow Of Colossus so you can clear this bird from the skies and move on to the next colossal battle.
This one has a very simple environmental mechanic. Scattered in a few places around the area are small stone platforms floating atop the water. These are your points of entry. Stand atop one of these platforms and use your bow to attract the attention of the Fifth Colossus. If it’s flying, you need to lead the arrow quite a distance. You will hear an audio cue if you manage to make contact with an arrow.
Once you have its attention it will fly up before darting down at you. At this point you must jump and hold R2 to grab onto the fur on its wing. There are 3 weak points to take down. One on each wing and one on the tail. Staying on once you are airborne is relatively easy. Just make sure to approach each wing with a full stamina gauge as they can be tricky to navigate in one swoop.
