Introduction

Shadow of the Colossus is a classic, with its own remake and everything. Who would have thought that a game filled with stone bosses would blow up with such fandom? Well, it did back in 2006, and then again with a 2011 PlayStation 3 remaster, and finally in 2018 with a remake. But fans still can't get enough! The remakes are spaced out enough that it doesn't feel like an overdose. Plus, almost 80% of the initial Japanese shipment was sold within two days. The scores for the game have always been at least 8/10. No wonder you want to name your dog after the game!

Shadow of the Colossus Dog Name Considerations

Minimalist landscape designs, immersive gameplay, and an emotional journey collide together in Shadow of the Colossus. The critical acclaim by both the media and video game critics has put this game on the map, calling it an iconic game and important turning point in game art style. 

And the funny part is, the story isn't that detailed. There are basically no backstories for any of the characters. But it does provide a fantasy setting called the Forbidden Land. In it, Wander, the protagonist of the game, has to resurrect a girl named Mono. To do this, he needs to defeat the Colossus, all of them. And each one has a different appearance and fighting style. 

The only companion Wander has in all of this is his beloved horse Agro. Oh, and the occasional help from Dormin, a disembodied entity that speaks with one male voice and one female voice at the same time.  

So, if you're trying to name your dog after all of this, there are a few ways to go about it. Choose your favorite characters, your favorite Colossus, or words that you think are associated with the game. Maybe feelings or memories that come to mind when thinking about the game?
