This monster's Japanese name is Gepard, which means cheetah in several European languages (including German and Russian (пантера)).
Its English name comes from panther. [view·edit·purge]Panther is a mythological creature that resembles a big cat with a multicoloured hide. Under medieval belief, after feasting, the panther will sleep in a cave for three days, then roars emitting a sweet odor that draws in any creatures who smell it (the dragon being the only creature immune). They are eaten by the panther, and the cycle begins again.
