Talk:Lizalfos

Geeru

I added some info on them from Zelda II, which I am about 99% sure the lizard enemies you encounter in east Hyrule are lizalfos.

They are indeed. I suggest we get sprites of at least one of their variations in the article. Dinosaur bob 20:51, 6 October 2007 (EDT)
I think Geeru needs to be seperate personally. I have never once seen them called Lizalfos in any official media, but I'm willing to be proven wrong if someone can find evidence otherwise. I'm fairly sure they are similar but different creatures, much like many Zelda II enemies. Fizzle 21:00, 10 September 2011 (EDT)
I think it should be in the same page until we find evidence and support for the split. Otherwise, I'll leave a split template.

Darkhammer?

Can we be positive it's a Lizalfos? Its tail seems kinda... stubby, don't ya think? I mean, should we say it's a Lizalfos just because it looks like one? Yoshimon 21:37, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, but due to the fact that it is armed with a Ball and Chain, it gets placed in the Ball and Chain Trooper category.User:Steven/sig 9:46, 20 August 2008 (EST)

Masked Lizalfos

Does anyone else see Cubone/Marowak in Masked Lizalfos? It wouldn't be the first time Zelda referenced Pokémon (Keaton Mask). Possible Trivia?

arrows stick to lizalfos

i think it should be worth meting the in twilight princess arrows stick to lizalfos--Ruchq 15:41, 19 August 2011 (EDT)ruchq

Do they not stick to other enemies as well? Pretty sure they stick in Bulbins too, just they tend to explode afterwards. Arrows have been shown sticking in enemies as far back as ALttP though. Fizzle 21:00, 10 September 2011 (EDT)

Split?

Fizzle wants to split Geeru from this page. Please support or oppose it. - AtrumLevis  (My Talk Page) (My Contributions) 17:24, 12 September 2011 (EDT)

Support, obviously. But apologies for jumping the gun and creating the Gaeru/Geeru page. My logic being that the enemy in Zelda II has gone entirely unnamed in all English media, and that its Japanese name is entirely different ゲール (Gēru). Lizalfos from OoT are known as Lizalfos in Japan as well, not Gēru. Gaeru, I'd argue, are not simply Lizalfos simply by being reptillian soldier enemies (Dinalfos aren't Lizalfos either, are they?). If we go by the logic of simply merging enemies that are similar, then we'd have to merge Keese and Ache and even Vire and Acheman, or even Iron Knuckle and Darknut? Just because this enemy went unnamed in English doesn't mean fanon belief (that they're Lizalfos) should take precidence. A lot of people think Girubokku is a Patra or a Moa, or that a Mago is a Wizzrobe, but they are neither. I would consider this a similar issue (its pretty common with Zelda II enemies). If someone can find evidence of them being called Lizalfos in NoA (or NoE) canon material I would be geniunely interested, however. Fizzle 14:30, 13 September 2011 (EDT)
"But apologies for jumping the gun and creating the Gaeru/Geeru page". This alone has doomed your actions. Next time please bring splits or merges to the discussion pages, or to Skype if you have an account there. It's extremely irresponsible, not even I (who often does actions directly) do this. Please wait until more people are aware of this split. Your was a very rude action. --User:K2L/sig 14:38, 13 September 2011 (EDT)
Are you saying that because I made a mistake that my argument is invalid? Its not like I have some kind of agenda, I was just trying to fix what I saw was an error, I'm sorry. I thought that the the page being restored and having a discussion on the split meant that things would be fine and we can discuss it properly, I really didn't think it'd be that much of a contentious issue. I really won't make the same mistake again. I'm a bit confused now, the Gaeru talk page seems a little ahead of this one at the moment, I think I'm reading them backwards, argh.
