The Lizard is a minor character in the Run series. Like the Bunny, it can't speak or understand language, so very little is known about it. Unlike the Bunny, it isn't very energetic and instead rather lazy. It is described as a "high-jumper" in the game.


The Lizard can be unlocked by beating level 40, or bought for 600 power cells in the store.

The Lizard has the highest jump. Its biggest weakness is the fact that if it jumps, it jumps high. This means it struggles in areas with close platforms, where small jumps are better. Its speed is 9m/s, making it one of the slowest characters in the game.

You are SO lucky

The Lizard sleeping

If the Lizard fails a level many times in a row (approximately 30 to 40 times), it gives up and goes to sleep. Until it wakes up, other characters must be used in order to keep playing. It originally would sleep for an hour, but the time was shortened to 10 minutes. The Lizard can be woken up sooner by repeatedly clicking on it in the menu screen or the pause screen, however, it will still be sleepy and fall asleep again much sooner (approximately 10 times) if it continues to fail a level. When the Lizard falls asleep, a one-frame cutscene will occur, in which the Child will pop up nearby the sleeping Lizard and say one of the following lines:

  • "Aww..."
  • "You are SO lucky I didn't bring a marker."
  • "Lazysaurus is back for revenge! Our hero must take evasive maneuvers to avoid tripping!"
  • "Back to sleep already? Animals are so lazy."
  • "Do all lizards sleep this much?"
  • "I brought you a battery. Want it? ...I'll just leave it here, for when you wake up."

Other Info Edit

  • There is also a chance that the Child does not show up at all.
  • The place that the Lizard is shown sleeping will be the same color as the tunnel that it failed in.
    • If the Lizard fails in Level 1, it will sleep behind the barrier.

Infinite Mode Trivia Edit

  • The Lizard does not, and perhaps, can not, understand the concept of jumping low.
  • The Lizard’s philosophy: find somewhere bright and sit there for hours.
  • Like many animals, lizards have personalities. This one just happens to be boring.
  • No one’s claiming the Lizard as their pet. It seems to have wandered out here on its own.
  • The Bunny and the Lizard can jump so high as a result of their strength and weight.

Other Trivia Edit

  • The Angel does not like the Lizard much, as shown when he pushed it out of a tunnel during his missions.
  • The mini-cutscene featuring the Child and the Lizard does not appear in the cutscene gallery, as it does not happen at any specific time in the story, and the Child has several different lines.
  • On the Kongregate Version, the Lizard appears as a costume in Run 1, but has no special abilities.
