Crystal Lizards are unique in Dark Souls in that they do not attack. Instead, they run away once the player approaches them and will soon disappear in a vanishing animation, in which they bob their head up and down. Once killed they will not respawn. They are a primary source of Twinkling Titanite until later in the game.
Crystal lizards spawn in a counter system similar to that of Demon's Souls. If players kill a crystal lizard, the counter goes down by one. Moving to the next NG increases the counter by one; any missed lizards in one playthrough can thus be killed several times in the next playthrough. Crystal lizards only spawn once per playthrough.
- They emit a "sparkling" sound which will indicate that they are close by.
- Attacking them will temporarily cancel their vanishing animation.
- Equipping the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring and the Ring of Fog may allow the player to get closer before they begin to run away. This is particularly useful in areas where they will disappear before they can be discovered. Similarly, the Sorcery spells Hush and Hidden Body can be used.
- Using a powerful ranged attack can be useful in certain areas where approaching them may be too difficult.
- Reloading the game where they spawn can cause them to appear right next to the player.
