The Lizard Story is a book found in Silent Hill. Harry Mason can find it on the library table in Alternate Midwich Elementary School. Harry comments on having read the story before. It gives him important clues on how to kill the forthcoming Split Head boss.
The plot point is reworked into the game's sequel, Silent Hill 3, whereupon Heather Mason (daughter of Harry) comes upon a familiar fairy tale that mirrors her forthcoming encounter with the Glutton. Rather than take hints from it and fight the creature, Heather must piece the tale together and read out loud "Tu Fui, Ego Eris" for the monster to disappear.
- "Hearing this, the hunter, armed with bow
- and arrow, said: 'I will kill the Lizard.'
- But upon meeting his opponent, he held back,
- taunting: 'Who's afraid of a reptile?'. At
- this, the furious Lizard hissed: 'I'll
- swallow you in a single bite!'. Then,
- the huge creature attacked, jaws open
- wide. This was what the man wanted.
- Calmly drawing his bow, he shot into the
- Lizard's gaping mouth. Effortlessly the
- arrow flew, piercing the defenseless maw.
- And the Lizard fell down dead."
