The Kolossus (pl. Kolossi) was a seemingly inert guardian statue, many of which were found all over simulation of Elysium. They responded to bloodshed, and would attack those who entered open combat within their vicinity. These statues were distinguished from each other by their designation Dory and their serial number.
Another type of Kolossi was the Obsidian Kolossus. These were mostly used by the Isu Hades in Hades. Unlike normal Kolossi, these used a sword and shield instead of a spear. They were distinguished from each other by their designation Xiphos and their serial number.
The third and final type was the Gold Kolossus. These were used by Isu Poseidon in Atlantis. Unlike the other two types, these used two daggers as a weapon instead of either the spear or sword and shield. They were distinguished from each other by their designation Makhaira and their serial number.
- Trespassing and assassinating an enemy near Kolossi does not trigger the activation.
- Destroying a Torch of Hypnos near an inert Kolossus used to damage them while maintaining their deactivated status. However, since the release of Patch 1.3.0, this feature has been removed.
- The name of the creatures, "κολοσσός", means "(large) statue" and is the source for the English word colossal.
