Attack with Fire

The Dirty Colossus is weak to fire. By buffing your weapons with Pine Reason, you can increase the effectiveness of your attacks.

Burn the Flies to Make Them Go Away

The flies that the Dirty Colossus fires at you will slowly chip away at your HP. Hit them with the flame located near the entrance. If they are hit, they will disappear, and the chip damage will stop. The damage is anything overwhelming, so it can be ignored.

Watch Out for the Swamp

There is a swamp in this boss area. If you enter the swamp area, not only will you be unable to run but you will be unable to roll for a brief time. The swamp is on the right side of the boss area, so try to avoid fighting there as much as possible.
