The Lurk Lizard is an Emblem Heartless that can be found exclusively as a boss in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.


The Lurk Lizard is a bipedal lizard resembling a chameleon. It has a teal body, with five blue-green spikes along its back. It often stands hunched over, holding its arms out in front of it. Its arms and legs are striped with zig-zags of blue-grey and a lighter blue, with gold bands at the shoulder, wrist, hip, and ankle. Its hands and feet have three toes each, two in front and one in back, with light green claws. Its prehensile tail is curled up behind it in a spiral. It has a smooth jawline, a pink tongue that can extend to surprising lengths, and large yellow eyes with small black pupils. Its Heartless emblem is on its chest.


Like the Veil Lizard, Lurk Lizard has a tendency to disappear and attack while invisible. In order to locate it, use the sound of its footsteps and the glowing eyes. Whenever the eyes glow, its tongue will lash out; either avoid or block it. If you block it, the lizard will be paralyzed for a little while and you can attack it. The lizard is at or near the source of the tongue lash, if you can get there in time.

In close range, it spins and whacks its tail at you, sometimes inflicting the shoe-glue status, making you unable to jump or do aerial combos. To avoid it dealing massive damage to your HP, either stay out of its range and launch Aero/Fire/Blizzard or block its tail. Be sure to bring at least one or more Cures with you in case you get caught off-guard.
