Return to Races

Lizalfos are a race of intelligence lizard-like humanoids, living in tribe-like societies in the Dungeons across Hyrule. When confronted in their Dungeon homes, they will fight to the death to stop any intruders from finding their tribe and egg-clutches. They will almost always fight in groups of two to four, cleverly tag-teaming any foe without mercy. A common practice among warriors of Lizalfos tribes is the strapping of weaponry to the tails, such as a macehead or axeblade,using them to supplement their already vicious attacks. Others still will wear skulls of fallen members to supplement their armor.

Lizalfos can come in any color and variation, though often possess coloration similar to their home environment. Depending on the tribe, you may find Lizalfos with spikes or fins along their spine, and these traits are highly coveted by Lizalfos females. Lizalfos are monstrous humanoids with the saurian subtype.
