* If you try to cross the bridge to Malus without Agro (and you ''[[LordBritishPostulate will]]'' try to cross the bridge to Malus without Agro), you're going to fall. And when you fall, you'll notice a hunk of stone of the exact same shape, and with the exact same design, as that of the pieces of the bridge. With WordOfGod's confirmation that the Forbidden Lands were frozen in time until Wander showed up, and the last save shrine in that region being named 'The Broken Seal', it stands to reason that the bridge was already starting to fall apart when the Lands froze, and Malus' zone had a slight delay in the time resumation that kicked in when Wander made contact.

* The colossi, being [[spoiler: the scattered parts of Dormin subconsciously or not]], wanted Wander to kill them so that their essence could be released.
** It's also possible that they [[spoiler: knew that they were the scattered pieces of Dormin]] and the reason that they attempt to avoid Wander is because [[spoiler: they don't want to reunite him/her.]]
* What does [[spoiler: Wander turn into at the end]]? The Shadow of the Colossus!

* So the food items are fruit... and gecko tails. What? Why not the birds? Because the stat tail improves helps your ''climbing'' ability.

* Dormin might have been the ones bringing [[spoiler: Agro]] back the way They brought [[spoiler: Wander]] back -- and that's why she has an injured leg! [[spoiler: Wander]] was shot in that leg!
* The FridgeLogic section has a rather lengthy entry pointing out how...well, dumb the Colossi can be with regards to their environment. But, if they were designed to be containers for Dormin's essence, the designers would ''want'' them to be unimaginative automatons so Dormin couldn't turn them or trick them into releasing their charge.
* How about this one: the Colossi are in arenas specifically designed with ways and behaviors needed to defeat them for the reason that the creators wanted a method to undo the seal on Dormin. Whether after Dormin's sentence was up or as a SummonBiggerFish move, the only explanation that the colossi exist in the way that they do is because they are designed to be defeatable.

* Dormin's name spelt backwards, as been mentioned numerous times, is Nimrod. However, it's not the term [[WhatAnIdiot you think it's describing]]. Before the common use of the word was coined by Bugs Bunny, Nimrod meant something the lines of a great hunter, referring to a character in the bible ''named'' Nimrod who was a pretty good hunter. Dormin wasn't looking for TheFool [[spoiler:to help release him with no questions about it]], he was looking for someone who was good at hunting down the Colossi, and his name reflects the latter, not the former.

*** They don't seem very smart, if you injure an animal they don't really do anything tactic-wise to fight back. Just panic. And I doubt they have any sort of instinct about how not to die, since they're not a species that evolves nor capable of being killed by literally anything else.

**Also, the biblical Nimrod is often associated with the construction of the Tower of Babel. You know, a very tall and imposing structure, just like the very one in the middle of the map.

**** Clenching a fist on Wander would be an amazingly dumb idea. It would be like trying to crush a piece of cactus in your bare hand; sure, it might break, but you'll be impaling your hand on the very thing you're trying to not get impaled on. And with Malus, he might be able to fry Wander with his fireball magic, but most of the Colossi aren't immune to their own powers; he'd be blowing off his own hand, and Wander ''could'' still survive it, which means trying to fight him again means Malus would have to do it without a second hand.

* So, Dormin speak in [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe butchered, improper archaic]], which is kind of funny. But ''how'' long have They been sealed? They've probably half-forgotten how to speak!

* Malus, the last colossus, is positioned as far south as possible. When you stand on his shoulders, behind his head, you can see the whole land. What stands out is the beams of light from each Colossus' remains. Malus knew when each Colossus died. That's why he was so aggressive; he knew he was the only one left before Dormin would be unleashed.
