Overview

Ice-Breath Lizalfos are enemies which appear in Breath of the Wild. Ice-Breath Lizalfos have the the unique ability of shooting out balls of ice from their mouth, and if these balls come into contact with Link, they will freeze him, leaving him vulnerable to other attacks. Link can avoid taking damage from ice attacks if he has acquired the Snowquill Set and upgraded it to Level II, giving it the Unfreezable set bonus.

Ice Lizalfos will often hide themselves within the snow, camouflaging themselves with the white environment, making it hard for Link to see them. Due to their ice-nature, they are very vulnerable to fire based attacks. Link can defeat one of these enemies instantly with a single short from any fire-based weapon. This includes Fire Arrows, Bomb Arrows, any fire elemental melee weapon, and even a lit Torch

When defeated, these enemies they will drop an Icy Lizalfos Tail, along with a chance of basic Lizalfos spoils, including a Lizalfos Horn and Lizalfos Talon.

These Lizalfos are found exclusively in cold regions within Hyrule, notably at the Gerudo Highlands, the Hebra region, and near Mount Lanayru in Hateno. While these Lizalfos can wield a variety of weapons, they most commonly are found with Lizal Boomerangs or a Forked Lizal Spear.

Ice-Breath Lizalfos have a health of 288, which matches that of their Fire-Breath Lizalfos, Electric Lizalfos, and Black Lizalfos counterparts.
