How to Beat the 9th Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus
Colossus 9 puts up a bit more of a fight than the ones that came before. He will fire volleys of fire at you, so keep riding around to avoid this attack. The key to taking Colossus 9 down is to draw him towards you and over a spring. When a spring hits him, he'll fold his ankles and reveal weak spots. Attack them to down him and give you chance to climb onboard.
Head to the belly and climb up. His back is full of hard ridges, so be quick and run to the head to find a weak spot and a place to hold on. Luckily this head weak spot is the only one, so once you're there, make sure you don't run out of grip and just take your time to repeatedly stab the glowing area. Take a rest to recharge your grip if you feel like you might be running out soon.
If you happen to get thrown off Colossus 9, which is easy to do when you're on his hard back, just lure him back over a spring and the jet will knock him over once again.
