Devil (or Pholux, as nicknamed by fans) is one of the many colossi that were not used in the game.

Strategy

The artbook says, "It was an extremely small colossus. You'd defeat it by menacing it with your bow, then drawing closer while hiding in the grass and attacking from behind. I imagined the battle with Devil to be fierce. You'd hide in the grass and jump on its back."

Location

Devil would be fought at quadrant H2 on the map, called the 'Devil's Plain', next to the Sluice, as proven by orange structures seen in the background of one of its screenshots being similar to the orange brick structures of I2 where the plain would connect through to H2, a Team ICO developer also confirmed it as being its location. It's possible the orange structures seen in Devil's screenshots were later updated into the orange brick structures we see at I2.

Steps can also be seen in one of its screenshots that resemble steps seen near the orange brick structures of I2, however they're on different angles.

Trivia

  • Devil lived next to the Sluice (Dam).
  • According to a Team Ico developer, "Well, you originally tried to avoid it like Kirin. Creep up and climb on him."
  • The same Team Ico developer also stated that Devil and Phoenix were cut simultaneously, partly due to time constraints.
  • Popular rumors have arosen claiming that the soundtrack "Anger" was supposed to play during the battle with this Colossus. These rumors are, however, completely unfounded and most likely false.
