BotW Hyrule Compendium Stalizalfos.png
The remains of Lizalfos appear in the dark of the night. They're as sly as ever, even now that they're just some bones stacked atop each other. However, their bodies are much more fragile, and a single solid hit can reduce them to pieces. If a skull remains intact, they will pull themselves back up and continue to fight. They've been known to grab the wrong skull at times, but they never seem to mind...

Stalizalfos are the skeletal remains of Lizalfos which emerge from the earth at night. They may have various Weapons equipped. If they do not carry any Weapons, they will swipe their tails at Link. Like other Stal enemies, their bones are very fragile. Any attack Link dishes out will cause them to temporarily fall apart.[1] The bones rebuild themselves without the head after a short period of time and walk toward the head as the head hops and rolls to the body so that they can rejoin. If Link destroys the head before the monster rebuilds itself, it is permanently defeated and both the body and head will vanish.

If Link wears the Lizalfos Mask, Majora's Mask, or possesses the Disguise; Bone Atk. Up Set Bonus by wearing the full Radiant Set or Phantom Ganon Set, Stalizalfos will not attack Link unless he attacks them.
