From the FAQ/Walkthrough by shotgunnova:
Take the bridge north of the starting temple, then turn east, looking for a
2nd bridge that extends northeast (it's near the Half-moon Canyon savepoint).
It leads into a sheltered glade, with its only exit beckoning Wander along a
cliffpath that abruptly ends at the top of Misty Falls -- a saveshrine of the
same name can be found here as Agro's left behind. Shimmy around the pillar
near the path obstruction to get on the other side, progress north as far as
possible, and jump in. The current is practically nonexistant, so just keep
swimming upstream. Past the ancient bridge, look for a stone formation just
barely above the surface. Step on it and...
RESTSPOT: Upper shell
: Upper head
BEHAVIOR: This sleeping giant uses its horns to shoot electrical projectiles
not unlike some colossi previously seen. These come from its dual
horns, so obviously it's a frontal-only attack. As a waterdweller
its turn radius isn't quite as slow as some land bosses.
If Wander makes it to high ground and hides, the colossus will put
its two front hooves on the structure for stability and fire its
thunderbolts when our hero's head sticks out. Its weakspot on the
chest is also exposed here -- making it come out of the water of
its own volition is the only way to get this to show!
Maneuvers to get rid of Wander, depending on where he is:
Thrashes in place (if on back)
Bows head, squirms (if on head)
Bends head back (if on head)
STRATEGY: Figuring out this one's trick can throw the player for a loop if
s/he's not careful. Like always, the first task is mounting. This
foe's a good swimmer and trying to circle behind in a roundabout
way ain't gonna work; instead, swim underwater between its limbs
and body, which is quicker and may also get a free push from its
Its seaweedy back is easy to climb, and there's little it can do
to stop an advance towards its head region. But...what's this? It
has no weakspot to stab like the others! To get its true weakspot
(on chest) to show, the three teeth-shaped stones on its head're
As Dormin said, this colossus can be used to get to higher ground,
namely the couple of ancient structures dwarfed by this giant. Use
the sword to hit the stones on its head, which is wires it to go
in a certain direction (middle = forward, left/right...duh?) as
well as making it completely complacent tempoarily. Make tracks to
the nearest pavilion.
When it gets in the vicinity of a building, leap off and use the
central cylinder to obscure any good projectile shots. The beast
will raise its front hooves onto the structure to get its bearings,
revealing its meaty chest weakpoint in the meantime. Leap onto its
fur and cut into the still-beatin' heart. Six incisions'll do the
trick, doctor. Note that the structures the colossus leans on can
break, so no dilly-dallying!
