Lizaflos is a mini-boss in the Zelda series, first appearing in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and so on.
Even though it's first appearance is in Ocarina of Time, there was a similar foe in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. It's name was Geru, and used a mace.
I really liked the battles against Lizalfos in Ocarina of Time. Not a bad mini-boss for the 2nd dungeon.
I was rather disappointed by the Lizalfos in Twilight Princess.
Though the ones in Skyward Sword made up for it. They provided some great fights with excellent blocks and counter-attacks.
