This game plays a significant role in the 2007 Mike Bender film Reign Over Me. In the film, Charlie Fineman plays the game to cope with the death of his family in the 9/11 attacks, as the imagery of each Colossus falling to the ground was considered reminiscent to the collapse of the World Trade Center. With the approval of Fumito Ueda, the game was included in the movie. See more
Before the battle with the 16th colossus, Wander and Agro cross a bridge that begins to collapse and Agro falls to her apparent death. When Agro is falling, large splashes of water can be seen in the river below. Obviously these splashes were caused by the already-collapsed pieces of the bridge. However, when Wander looks over the ledge just seconds later to see Agro falling, there is not even a ripple in the water. See more
