Kingdom Hearts 358/2 DaysEdit

Veil Lizard is the Heartless Boss who is the culprit behind the “Eighth Wonder of Twilight Town”, as Pence calls it. The legend says that if someone were to go into the woods in front of the Old Mansion and shake a certain tree, the entire place would start to rustle. It is also said that people feel “watched” while being in said woods. Roxas and Axel were informed of this “Eighth Wonder” by Pence while talking about the Seven Wonders being fake. The duo decides to investigate the legend assuming the one behind it could possibly be Xion’s target. When they arrive at the woods and shake a tree with leaves falling from it they hear rustling. The rustling moves from tree to tree as the (at the time) invisible Veil Lizard runs to the Old Mansion. After following the invisible enemy to the mansion gates, the Veil Lizard reveals itself and attacks its pursuers. Mid-way through the fight Xion runs into the fight and is knocked out by the Heartless. Roxas and Axel then defeat the Heartless and go to aid Xion.


The Veil Lizard is a large, bipedal lizard resembling a chameleon. It has a dark green body, with five tan spikes along its back. It often stands hunched over, holding its arms out in front of it. Its arms and legs sport zig-zagging stripes that alternate from tan to a dark green, with gold bands at the shoulder, wrist, hip, and ankle.

Its green hands and feet have three toes each, two in front and one in back, with light green claws. Its prehensile tail is curled up behind it in a spiral. It has a smooth jawline, a pink tongue that can extend to surprising lengths, and large yellow eyes with small black pupils. Its Heartless emblem is on its chest.


The Veil Lizard's name, powers, and appearance may be a reference to real-world veiled chameleons.
