Shadow of the Colossus boss maps and locations

How to find every colossus boss in the game

Bluepoint Games/Sony Interactive Entertainment

There are 16 colossi scattered throughout Shadow of the Colossus. In the image below, you’ll see the location of every boss in the game. We’ve also added numbers next to the colossi. Those indicate the order in which you’ll fight them. In our series of guides, we’ll show you how to find and defeat them all. If you’re just looking to find one, though, the map below will help you get where you’re going. (If you’re looking for the locations of shrines, be sure to check out our Shadow of the Colossus shrine map guide.)

Each of the 16 colossi you fight during Shadow of the Colossus is a puzzle to solve. You have to find where it’s hiding in the world. Then you have to figure out how to get close to it. And finally you have to figure out how to reach its magic sigil weak points and kill it.

Polygon’s Shadow of the Colossus guides will take you from the Shrine of Worship through defeating each colossus, stopping at shrines and gathering collectibles along the way. If you’re looking for lizards, fruit trees or just some help defeating a colossus, check them out.
