Added DiffLines:

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: For whatever reason, the control scheme of the PS4 remake of the game has been completely revamped. For anyone who's coming from the older versions of the game, this can be quite jarring and lead to a few unintentional deaths.

** One of the bonus weapons from the time attacks [[spoiler:is the sword from ''ICO''[='=]s finale]].

to:

** One When fighting a colossus scared of fire, Wander picks up a stick and uses it in the same manner as his sword (that is to say, [[HowDoIShotWeb not very well]]).
** Among
the bonus weapons from the Hard Mode time attacks [[spoiler:is the are a sword from ''ICO''[='=]s styled like the ones Ico can find around the castle, and [[spoiler:the Queen's Sword he uses in the finale]].

* DamageDiscrimination: Arrow shots that were [[DamageSpongeBoss eating away at the Colossus' health bar]] will suddenly cease being effective, requiring you to go in there with your sword and finish the job.

to:

* CuttingTheKnot: During your initial playthrough, the [[HeartContainer silver-tailed lizards]] are tricky to take out; you can either run them over on Agro (only possible if they're out in the open), shoot them with an arrow (this game does not have an exceptional archery system), or sneak up on them and slash them with the sword (Wander's swordplay is horrendous). In a second playthrough, you have access to [[StuffBlowingUp flash arrows]], which just need to land in a lizard's general vicinity to kill them and make their tails easy pickings.

Added DiffLines:

* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: [[spoiler: Or rather "And Then Wander Was Dormin". At the end of the game, in order to complete their spell, Dormin uses Wander's body as a vessel to manifest itself in the physical world as a gigantic, Colossus-like being]].


Added DiffLines:

* HighPressureBlood: Starts geysering out of the Colossi whenever you stab their vitals.


Added DiffLines:

* LivingShadow: Shadowy beings surround Wander whenever he reappears in the central temple after killing a Colossus. They're heavily implied to be the spirits of the slain Colossi. [[spoiler: At the end of the game, Dormin appears this way when they take control of Wander's body]].


Added DiffLines:

* ThePaladin: Lord Emon appears to be something of the sort. He's certainly not keen on the player doing the dirty work of a literal demon.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: The final battle is effectively this for the player. You've spent the entire game killing the Colossi one by one even though they posed no threat to you, and at the end of the game you effectively become a Colossus yourself, and end up helpless to save yourself against Lord Emon and his men, just like the Colossi you've spent hours hunting down and murdering by this point]].

** Normally you have to tempt Phalanx into trying to attack your hiding place and then wait for it to get tired and crouch down. With some fancy footwork, it's possible to chop out this process by jumping off of Agro, onto Phalanx's leg, and then quickly hopping up onto its back where the proper handholds are.

*** Notably, the stamina you build up throughout the game from fighting the Colossi stacks with each subsequent playthough, so each NewGamePlus gets a little bit easier just based on that.
