Cyan Lizards (also known as Leapzards or Leap-Lizards) are one of the many species of Lizards icon.png Lizard. They are the most mobile Lizards, possessing all of the climbing abilities of a Blue Lizard icon.png Blue Lizard or White Lizard icon.png White Lizard, while also being capable of launching themselves at high speeds. As one of the hard-mode enemies, they are found natively across many regions as Hunter head.png Hunter, and may be lineaged as Monk head.png Monk or Survivor head.png Survivor.

Cyan Lizards have a 33.3% or 1/3 bite lethality rate.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards are primarily black in coloration, with cyan eyes, mouths and markings that glow strongly when charging up their leap. Their colors can vary from greenish-turquoise to light blue. They may sometimes feature wing-scales of varying sizes and positions, and often have unique patterns on their leaf-shaped tails, as well as other frills and feathers adorning it.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Whilst Cyan Lizards are fast and aggressive, they do not have much health, taking 2-4 Spear icon.png Spear hits to kill; therefore, the main difficulty lies in managing to get a good shot at them due to their high mobility. Stunning them with Rubbish icon.png Rubbish knocks them off any walls and prevents them from leaping, giving an opportunity to hit them with a Spear. Hitting them with a projectile whilst they are in mid-air also prevents them from grabbing onto anything for a few seconds, potentially leading to them falling to their deaths.

Stealth[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards tend to stay on the move, patrolling areas quickly, making it easy to lay in wait for one to move past and sneaking behind it. They also are common in areas with many alternative paths and places to hide.

Evasion[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards are some of the most difficult Lizards to directly run away from as they excel in moving in all directions. The best way to evade them is to trick them into going a different direction than the way forwards, then using the opportunity to slip past. Vulture Mask icon.png Vulture Masks are particularly invaluable in warding off Cyan Lizards as due to their high speed, they run away significantly faster compared to other Lizards, giving more breathing room once the Vulture Mask's effect wears off.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Wall Crawl[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards can crawl along the background walls and are capable of grabbing onto them at any point whilst falling through the air unless stunned.

Leap[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards are able to launch themselves using their tails, allowing them to traverse distances very quickly. They perform a short windup, during which their tail is held stiff and vibrates and, depending on how long they charge up, they may perform either a single leap that launches them a great distance, or sequences of shorter, rapid-fire leaps. Both can be chained together and propel them through the air until they hit the ground or grab onto a wall.

Tongue[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards possess a short tongue which they can use to latch onto and reel in prey.

Taming[edit | edit source]

Cyan Lizards have average taming difficulty, typically requiring 2-3 feedings.

Cyan Lizards are a good pick as a long-term companion - unlike other Lizard species, they are capable of entering every region, although some regions may be difficult for them to travel through. However, combat in conjunction with a Cyan Lizard can be challenging at times due to their tendency to leap everywhere combined with low health making it easy to accidentally hit and kill them. That being said, they are capable of contributing a modest amount of damage to fights with other creatures and are also decent at saving the player when incapacitated in another creature's jaws as their leap allows them to catch up to and bite at them quickly.

A good place to tame Cyan Lizards is around the right-most hub of Sky Islands Safari Icon.png Sky Islands, just before the bridges leading to Chimney Canopy Safari Icon.png Chimney Canopy; on Hunter mode there are plenty of Squidcada icon.png Squidcadas available and a single Cyan Lizard den in the same room, making it trivial to tame one within a cycle due to their low taming requirement.

Cyan Lizard lineage dens can be viewed on the interactive map.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cyan Lizards were added in the 1.5 update.
  • When hit by a Spear whilst in the middle of a leap or preparing for one, their leaping ability may go haywire, leaking an unknown gas from the wound and flying around similarly to a deflating balloon.
    • This has a 25% chance to occur with hits to the head, and 50% for other body segments. It can only happen to an individual Cyan Lizard once per cycle.
    • This frequently ends up throwing them into death pits in Sky Islands, Chimney Canopy, and The Exterior Safari Icon.png The Exterior.
    • Curiously, whatever reaction that occurs inside the tail that allows Cyan Lizards to leap generates enough heat to distort the air around it.
  • Cyan Lizards hunt and eat Blue Lizard icon.png Blue Lizards.
  • Cyan Lizards have the ability to walk on ceilings, unlike White Lizards. This is a trait shared with Blue Lizards.
  • Cyan Lizards have one of the lowest same-species rivalry levels, beaten only by Black Lizard icon.png Black Lizards and Yellow Lizard icon.png Yellow Lizards.
