** Old english is pretty much unrecognizable from modern english, more then likely its not that Dormin forgot how to speak but that they have been sealed so long the language itself has changed


* Dormin might have been the ones bringing [[spoiler:Agro]] back the way They brought [[spoiler:Wander]] back -- and that's why he has an injured leg! [[spoiler:Wander]] was shot in that leg!

* 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 along the lines of a great hunter, referring to a character in Literature/TheBible ''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.

** Another reason behind his aggressiveness is because of his lack of mobility. As he's fixed in place, he has nowhere to run if ever Wander comes close to killing him and knows what has to happen since he can't escape: [[spoiler:either Wander dies and Mono is left alone in the shrine (either in her coma or dead), or Malus dies and Dormin returns to life.

* 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.

*** 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.
