Phaedra – Hard Time Attack Speed Slaying Guide
Phaedra is the fourth colossus in Shadow of the Colossus and she is required to be slain in under 6 minutes, 15 seconds. Phaedra is, for the most part, really easy. If anything, she’s more annoying due to the mechanics of her fight. In order for you to climb Phaedra, you need to make sure to kneel down so you can jump up behind her and grab on to the ledges under her tail. In order to do that, you need to bait Phaedra into one of the small bunkers in the environment. Pull out your bow, run up to the bunker you want to bait her into, and start shooting her. Unfortunately, the arrows don’t actually inflict any damage to her, so you’re just going to be using it as a baiting tool instead. Once she gets on top of one of the bunkers, jump into the little hole and come out the other; it doesn’t matter which side you come out.
When you come out of the other side, make sure to use your camera to keep checking where she is looking; you do not want to be noticed by her. Eventually she will kneel down to look for you in the hole, and that’s the time when you run up behind her, jump up to grab on to the small ledges under her tail, and climb your way up. Once you’re on top Phaedra, you’re on easy street, but be wary that she shakes a ton and will try to shake you off her body. Phaedra has a total of three vital points on her body: one on each side, and her head. The order in which you attack them doesn’t really matter, but I would advise you hit both of her sides first and do the head last as always. Remember that she shakes a lot, so don’t always feel free to walk or run around on top of her body at all times, or you’ll be sent flying. That’s about it. This fight is more of a waiting game than anything, and it’s not hard to kill her within the time limit once you get climbing.
