A Lizalfos is a bipedal lizard-like enemy featured in The Legend of Zelda franchise, and they first appear in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Lizalfos have the ability to efficiently use armor and weaponry. They often band together into pairs or small groups.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Lizalfos appear in pairs on three different occasions: twice in Dodongo's Cavern and once in the Spirit Temple. They frequently shriek and jump around the room. Though they always come in pairs, only one attacks Link at a time. They appear more frequently in the Master Quest version, appearing in places such as Jabu Jabu's Belly and the Fire Temple.

Aside from Lizalfos, the game also introduces Dinolfos, which are a stronger variant of the Lizalfos. They have more violent-looking features, such as spines, heavier armor, and larger swords, and can withstand twice as much damage as Lizalfos.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Lizalfos return in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess as a common enemy, and appear more gecko-like and bulky than in their debut appearance. There are three different varieties of Lizalfos: regular, shaman, and armored. They are equipped with axes and bucklers, and many have an axe head attached to their tails. They are frequent enemies, and appear in many places across the map. The larger and more powerful Dinolfos are adept at blocking Link's attacks and will quickly recover if stunned. The game introduces an aerial variant, Aeralfos.
