Agro / Argo

Video of Agro, including his brown and white version, which unlock by completing normal and hard time attack mode respectively.

Is it Argo, or Agro? "Agro" beats "Argo" 934 to 357 on google by a count of webpages returned (as of this post). It occurs to me that the name might be a reference to the Lone Ranger and his horse, Silver (the chemical symbol for silver is Ag, which derives from the word Argent). Our hero has the "lone ranger" part covered, and defeating all of the colossi under hard mode time-attack will give you a white version of Agro.

Agro is also similar to Argo, Xena's horse on the TV show "Xena: Warrior Princess." Not to mention the famous ship in Greek mythology where Jason fights the Titans...hmm

*is sad she was beat* Yeah, Argo is the name of the Argonauts' ship, which seems more likely as a reference than Silver and the Lone Ranger. :P

If one chanced upon reading the players manual that was included with the purchased game, it clearly states that the horse's name is "Agro." This can be found on pages 14, 15 and 16.

Listen as much as you want, but it's Agro, not Argo. The idea dealing with Silver and Ag is a relatively good idea, but unlikely.

Though, if it were Argo, it could be a reference to the Odyssey, the Greek Epic about Odysseus who had a dog(a loyal and faithful dog that died on him when he returned home). This story could certainly be a play on that.

His name is Agro. It sounds like Wander calls him "Ado" in the game, but that's not his name. Maybe it sounds like that because Wander speaks some made up language or something. But, I know for sure that his name is Agro.
