This article is about a/an Phantom in Kamen Rider Wizard.

Lizardman (リザードマン Rizādoman) is a Phantom born within a film director called Satoshi Ishii (石井 悟史 Ishii Satoshi), when he gave up in despair in The Sabbath ritual.

His Gate target is Chizuru Manaka (真中 千鶴 Manaka Chizuru), who is an actress that worked with him, before he became a Phantom. This Phantom has great strength and also possesses a thick hide, making this Phantom very even in stats. Lizardman is also armed with the sword called Scale (スケール Sukēru).

Lizardman first encountered Haruto shortly after the ritual, and had jumped at him to kill him. But, thanks to The White Wizard, he was saved, and the Phantom ran off (and chose to blame Haruto for getting hurt by the wizard). Since then, due to his habit of attacking humans he "auditions" to be his victims, Lizardman has been on the run from Medusa and Phoenix as he wants nothing to do with their agenda (plus at least one of his victims had been a Gate, robbing the Phantoms of a new member). Saved by Haruto, unaware of his true identity at the time, Lizardman meets Chizuru, an aspiring actress from his former life.

But forced in a position by Medusa, Lizardman is made to kill Haruto so his life can be spared. During the fight, the Gate that Lizardman was to target before he ran off is revealed to be Chizuru, where later on he would destroy the film reel containing the final scene of the independent film Chizuru starred in order to bring her into despair. However, Chizuru doesn't know that Satoshi is the Phantom (with Haruto purposely keeping her in the dark) and whenever he was gone, she got herself anxious of where he is.

Later on when Satoshi is about to destroy the film reel, Haruto confronts him and becomes Wizard to fight him again, then becoming Water Dragon to finish him off. Just as Lizardman dives into the water, Wizard parts the water with a crack of his Dragon Tail, revealing the Phantom, then destroys him with the Dragon Smash after using the Blizzard Ring to freeze the parted water and the Phantom within it.
