Digimon World: Digital Card Arena[edit]

Garudamon appears in Flame City's Battle Café after beating Yagami Taichi, alongside her partner, Takenouchi Sora. She explains to the player that they met before in Sage Tower, where she was Birdramon. Afterwards, she asks the player how he's doing, and points out that he must've found what he was looking for. She then challenges the player to a battle, pointing out that Sora will not fight him before he beats her, and that she will win if he hasn't improved since Sage Tower. Garudamon plays the Sun Goddess deck, a Red/Flame deck with 4 attack, 4 defense and 3 evolution speed that's well-balanced and uses Recovery cards. Upon being defeated, she's surprised she lost and asks Sora for forgiveness, but nonetheless accepts the battle was fair and holds no grudge, so she's sure he'll have a great match with Sora and wants a rematch herself.

Garudamon later appears as the fourth opponent of Sage Tower's second and third Battle Arenas. Before the first match, she tells the player she's glad to see him again, then points out that the previous battlers could not stop him, but she's not like them and won't let him go any farther. Upon being defeated, she accepts she's no challenge for the player and tells him to continue, but with care as the last two Card Tamers, Metal Garurumon and War Greymon, are stronger than the rest.

Garudamon's also an obtainable Perfect-level Red/Flame card, whose stats are:

  • HP: 1320
  • DP: 30
