How to Defeat

These are enhanced Lizalfos, but they’re not too scary by the time you fight them, since your sword has been upgraded a lot. They behave the same as regular Lizalfos, but their fire breath is replaced with cursed breath that prevents item usage for a while.

For good measure, we suggest having a Sacred Shield or Hylian Shield, to block the cursed breath. Shield Bashes in general are also quite effective; you can wait for them to perform a tail swipe, then parry the attack and smack them while they’re stunned.
