Garuda

Garuda (गरुड [garuda] or 'eagle' in Sanskrit) is a Hindu and Buddhist mythical bird creature. In Hindu mythology Garuda is described as having a golden body of a man, red wings, an eagle's beak and a crown on his head. He is known as the mount of the god Vishnu, and the sworn enemy of Naga. He is said to feed only on snakes.
Garuda in Buddhism is used as a symbol of speed and martial prowess. The mythology describes him as much the same as described above with some more detail on how he was hatched.

ガルーダ or ガルダ [garuda] in Japanese (first variation has a long 'oo' sound, the second a short one). Note that this page details the monster Garuda, for the summon see here.
