|Garuda the Wind Spirit (character)|
Garuda the Wind Spirit is a character version of the card "Garuda the Wind Spirit", appearing in Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monsters.
Garuda was one of the four living statues surrounding the Fortress of Fear, in the World of Capsule Monsters.
The statues of Garuda the Wind Spirit, Spirit of Flames, The Rock Spirit and Aqua Spirit stood still at the four corners of the wall surrounding the Fortress of Fear. Solomon Muto and Yugi Muto coped that people had to stand before the statues striking the same pose as their respective statue to unlock the door. Joey Wheeler stood in front of the Garuda statue, imitating it, while his friends stood at the others, holding the door open long enough for Yugi to go inside. Eventually Joey broke pose, causing the door to shut and the statues to come to life and attack those standing before them.
Garuda battled the Flame Swordsman, which Joey summoned and had no trouble overpowering it. When Yami Yugi emerged from the fortress, he had Dark Magician protect his friends and attack the four statues at once with its "Magical Crossroads" attack, causing the Garuda statue to fall apart.
