Garda (ガルダ, Garuda) is the first opponent Alibaba Saluja faces in the Reim Empire Colosseum.
Garda is a large muscular ape-looking beast with large fur on her back. She also has large fangs.
Garda is a ferocious beast and fight with instincts. She has shown to underestimate her foes/meals, such as when she released Alibaba, after breaking his arm, and let him run away. However Garda may seem ferocious, Garda can be very respectful and admirable to her master, such as when Alibaba bought her and released her and shown respect to him as a pet. She is very attached to him, proved by sleeping with him, nursing him and smiling to him. She also seems to be a bit jealous of him, as she threatened all girls that came to meet Alibaba.
Garda was used in the Reim Empire Colosseum for gladiator battles. She killed more than 100 gladiators.
Garda is sent out for the gladiator battle against Alibaba. When the match begins, Garda unleashes several destructive stomps against Alibaba, but he dodged them. After Alibaba's attempts of slashing Garda, Garda eventually overpowers Alibaba and holds him with one hand. After the beast takes a bite from his arm, he crushes it.
Garda releases Alibaba and let him escape, Garda then goes straight for him breaking a statue. Garda decides to eat his arm, however Alibaba used the spear, the statue was holding, to pierce Garda's mouth. Garda then proceeds to stomp Alibaba, but was lured by Alibaba to be stabbed by his sword, by using the wall as support. With the loss of one arm, Garda was slashed by Alibaba several times until Garda couldn't fight anymore.
After the fight, Alibaba earned a high prize money and bought Garda. When she was released, five days later he went along with Alibaba to the Shambal Gladiators Training Grounds, showing respect and admiration to Alibaba.
Garda is only mentioned by Alibaba when he recalls the time he spent in Reim while lying about him having a girlfriend. He makes reference to her when he is seemingly talking about Toto. He reveals that Garda is a female ape who used to sleep with him sometimes and threatened all the girls that came to meet him.
