The Fire Lizard, also known as the Agama in the Nintendo Entertainment System and PlayStation versions, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. Fire Lizards appear in the Mount Gulg, but only in the fifth basement. However, it can appear in the fourth as a guardian. It also appears in the Chaos Shrine, in the room where Marilith appears, as well as many monsters from the volcano, like the Fire Elemental. Fire Lizards can be easily distinguished from other members of the lizard family by their bright red coloration.

In several places inside the volcano, the Fire Lizard guards chests and rooms. For example, the famous chest which contains the Flame Armor (guarded by a Red Dragon) is also guarded by a Fire Lizard.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Fire Lizards are weak to Ice-based spells, but are also extremely resistant to Fire.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Fire Lizard is not a challenging enemy, and appears alone when fighting them as guardians; it has low Defense and Agility. It can usually be defeated before it has a chance to attack (using Attack command and Ice). His only trick is an attack called Blaze (HEAT in the NES version), which does Fire-elemental damage to all party members. Nulblaze mitigates the already-low amount of damage it deals.
