* A more meta example but you really have to give the [=SotC=] fanbase major props for how [[{{Determinator}} determined]] they are to find out every last bit of factoid about this game. Despite the game being over ''12'' or so years old now, the fanbase is ''still'' set on finding 'the last big thing' about the game. Over the years, they've not only found out about the rest of the Colossi that were in the planning stages but ''also'' managed to pick accurate locations where they would have been in the original based on pulling the code apart and finding beta areas in the game, how they would have likely been fought based on the area, and how Wander would have got to them based on the beta map. Heck, they're just ''that'' passionate about this game that a few have even managed to get ''some of the earliest demo discs of the game that SHOULD have been locked away forever in Sony's vault!'' People just love this game so much that even after a ''decade'' of it's release, people are still so into it that they won't let it go until they know about every last detail it has to hide!

* Then there is the battle with the 10th colossus, a giant sand snake that chases after Wander at such incredible speed that he is forced to ride on Agro to keep ahead of the thing. Moreover, its only accessible weak spots are in its eyes, so Wander ''lets go of Aggro's reins, turns in the saddle, and accurately shoots an arrow into the Snake's eye while at full gallop!!'' Wander may be a clumsy swordfighter, but there is no denying that he is a master of archery.

* The way Lord Emon [[spoiler:defeats the Dormin-possessed Wander]] can be this as well. You'd expect him to be [[spoiler:squashed flat]], but instead he and his men [[spoiler:slay the EldritchAbomination before them!]]
* If you're on Wander's side in all this, and perhaps even if you aren't, [[spoiler:the way he goes down struggling against Emon's men to the bitter end. He might not have been in any condition to fight them after what he'd just been through, they might have shot and stabbed him so easily it was more like an execution than a battle, but he ''doesn't give up'' until he physically can't go on any more.]]

* Here's another way to approach Malus: you've come a long way. Fifteen Colossi the size of gods are dead by your hand. Your faithful steed and closest friend, Agro, has just fallen off the bridge that just collapsed behind you; verily, she was proud and strong until the end. But you know now that only one Colossus remains. As a powerful thunderstorm manifests, you go up the stairs and see a tower stretching to the darkened sky. "This is it," you say. "The final Colossus is inside that tower." Then the tower's spires begin '''moving'''. "...Oh..."

Added DiffLines:

*The water physics are nothing to scoff at, and no fight shows this better than the fifth colossus'. When Avion dive bombs you the sheer wind force from her dive sends a massive wall of water at you, just before you jump on.


** Even more amazing is how the team managed to keep this a secret and completely under the rader until the trailer was released!
