Lizalfos are fairly agile warriors, but their pride can get the better of them. They carry a shield-like gauntlet for defense. They're fats enough to slide out of the way of most of your attacks, but if you successfully dodge one of their hits they'll instinctively taunt you to try to intimidate you. Don't let this tactic distract you, though - go in for the kill!
