Lava Lizards are enemies that appear in Skelos Badlands in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!. They are part of an orb challenge where the lizards will hatch from eggs and attempt to eat the Bonebuilders, and Spyro must kill them before they do. The lizard-eggs are brought in by vultures. The Lava Lizards can be killed via fire breath.
- On the start screen, one appears chasing a Bonebuilder before banging into the logo saying Spyro 2 and being knocked out.
- A Lava Lizard appears on the European cover for Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer.
