Taro was a massive dragon-like creature that lived in the cave of Sokura. Taro's neck was chained to the wall to serve as a guard to protect the cave. When Sinbad traveled to the cave he managed to sneak pass Taro. When a Cyclops arrived in pursuit of Sinbad, he quickly released Taro from his chains and Taro attacks the Cyclops. After a fierce battle Taro came out victorious after biting the Cyclops' neck until it died. Taro then walked out onto the beach and was shot in the neck by a massive crossbow bolt, he fell and crushed Sokura.
