Galuda was just happily married to the chief's daughter in their village, and they are on their honeymoon. On their comfortable trip in the airship Royal Heaven, Galuda's wife looks out of the window.
"What is that castle?" At that moment, the airship is shaken hard and they are thrown out through a window. Galuda loses consciousness.
"Where is this?" When Galuda wakes up, he finds himself in the castle. He must find and save his wife!
Galuda is one of the more powerful characters and has decent speed to get around, unlike Gunrock. His offensive and defensive abilities are high, and he doesn't have any major weaknesses. The key with Galuda is to get in close to the enemy, but he is also a very well-rounded character good at just about everything. His right trigger Power Fusion is hard to aim, but is very damaging when done correctly. In the first Power Stone, his Light of Judgment was also hard to aim. It was removed in Power Stone 2. In Power Stone Collection, he unlocks the Totem Hammer.
Power Drives and Power Fusions Edit
- Light of Justice: He quickly draws a bow and fires three glowing arrows outward in a triangular pattern. It has a long range and travels very quickly. Each arrow does decent damage, and can inflict heavier damage if all three arrows hit.
- Wings of the Eagle/Heavenly Wind: He jumps in the air as two huge golden angel wings burst out of his back. He then flies toward whoever is closest to him and knocks them to the ground. This attack is not very strong, but is good for getting closer to opponents who run away from the player.
- Star Fire: Galuda draws a massive golden bow from his hands a draws a giant glowing arrow. He fires it into the sky, and within seconds many large golden arrows begin raining down on the stage. These deal enormous damage and can take away a good portion of the opponent's health, especially if they get trapped under the attack.
Other appearances Edit
Originating from Soil Land, Galuda was part of a tribe called the Soaring Eagles and had a sister. Lilica, the chief's daughter, was engaged to be married to Galuda, but due to an illness she got when they left their village, the wedding was postponed. When Falcon and his crew arrives at Soil Land, they find out that the civilians of Dust Town and Galuda's Tribe were not on good terms with each other. Falcon and his crew eventually get separated, resulting in some of his friends being captured and locked by the town's police. It is later on revealed that the townspeople hold a stone called the Soil Stone which originally belonged to the indigenous people of Soil Land.
According to Galuda, the Soil Stone was found at the top of the totem pole in his tribe's original homeland, which was taken over by settlers. Ever since the Power Stone was in that totem pole, peace and good health settled on Galuda's tribe and those who disrespected it were cursed. Falcon and Galuda decided to work together to bring it back and free his friends. In the end, the Soil Stone reacted with Galuda to Power Change into Proud Eagle in order to protect his tribe.
Soon, peace was made between the Soaring Eagle tribe and the people of Soil Town (now called Eagle Town). After these events, Galuda decides to travel with Falcon and his crew in order to find a cure for his future wife, Lilica.
In the near end of the series, Galuda was attacked by a giant scorpion who intends to steal his Soil Stone as he managed to escape it's onslaught and the Soil Stone was safe in his hands and joins with Falcon and the group to travel to Dark Land in fighting Valgas. He also leads, Ryoma, Wang-Tang and Rouge to get their Power Stones from the altar in the mouth of the inactive volcano and fights against most of Valgas' fighters who turned into monsters by controlling from the black gem at the back of their necks.
He and the others cornered Valgas in his Power Change form and demontrates the power of the Dark Stone and mutates into blob monster. They are unable to stop them when they were hit from Valgas' electric shock and reverts back to their normal forms and he then watches Falcon defeats Valgas as the Light Whirlwind after transforming with the Light Stone.
At the end of the series, Galuda returns to Soil Land, where he and Lilica finally get married.
