Lizard is the fifth dungeon in The Legend of Zelda.
The Dungeon Entrance
Link can find this dungeon after climbing up a mountain area, the Lost Hills, four consecutive times. In the Second Quest, it's located in the exact same place where the Snake dungeon is in the First Quest.
Inside the dungeon, Link must be careful with the new enemies that appear, especially the Gibdos because they can deal massive damage with mere contact. The dungeon item is the Recorder, useful to warp between dungeon entrances in the overworld, unveil hidden places and weakening then dungeon boss, Digdogger. After defeating the boss, Link will receive a Heart Container and obtain the fifth piece of the Triforce. Similar to Manji (and later Demon Labyrinth as well), the dungeon is green-colored, and overall it doesn't differentiate very much from the other two dungeons.
In the Second Quest, the dungeon resembles more the Dragon Labyrinth due to the heavy presence of Wizzrobe beings, and the yellow-colored architecture; this means that Snake in the First Quest (which is the first yellow-colored dungeon in the game) has had very little influence in this dungeon. It houses the Bow and Arrow, which is accessible much earlier in the First Quest. The boss is Gleeok, which is three-headed this time (it later returns with four heads in the seventh dungeon).
The dungeon's internal shape is that of a Z. The first four dungeons are shaped, respectively, as E, A, L and D. With this dungeon, we have EALDZ, which is an anagram for Zelda.
