Phoenix Beast Gairuda is a character version of the card, "Phoenix Beast Gairuda", which is part of the main cast of The Sparrow's TV show.
Phoenix Beast Gairuda only appeared as a character in a brief moment of a "The Sparrow" episode which Astral watched. It is shown being overpowered together with Beast-Warrior Puma by Galaxy Queen's evil powers. The Sparrow then arrives and confronts her.
During Nelson's Duel against Yuma, it is revealed that Phoenix Beast Gairuda was owned by a princess, but couldn't abandon his comrades and instead of staying with her, joined The Sparrow and the others. Astral, who watched the show, commented that Phoenix Beast Gairuda has a strong bond with the others.
Nelson, who plays the role of The Sparrow, uses the card version of Phoenix Beast Gairuda on his Deck, which is entirely based on the TV show. The cards hint that when Phoenix Beast Gairuda, The Sparrow, Beast-Warrior Puma and Ironhammer the Giant unite, they can control a giant spaceship.
