These quick-witted, lizard-like monsters can be found all over Hyrule. This particular type tends to carry some pretty strong weapons, so they are among the most dangerous Lizalfos.

Black Lizalfos are a stronger variant of green Lizalfos and Blue Lizalfos. They often carry stronger Lizalfos Weapons.[3] Like most of them, they can be found swimming in bodies of water around the ocean or lakes.

Other Appearances

Cadence of Hyrule

In Cadence of Hyrule, Black Lizalfos are stronger than Blue Lizalfos and Green Lizalfos, possessing more health and attack power than their weaker counterparts. Unlike the Green Lizalfos, they wield spears that can hit Cadence, Link, Yves and Zelda at a farther distance. However, they do share the same beat pattern as other Lizalfos, standing still until the player walks in front of them, prompting them to charge forward. When attacking, they move in a straight line on every single beat until they collide into something, becoming stunned for three music beats and therefore vulnerable. If not slain within that period of time, they will regain consciousness on the fourth beat and either resume standing in one place or repeating their attack pattern.
