Galford D. Weller (ガルフォード=D=ウェラー, Garufōdo Dī Werā), better known as Galford, is a character in the Samurai Shodown series. He has consistently been in the roster since his introduction in Samurai Shodown with the exception of Warriors Rage. He fights alongside his pet husky, Poppy, and is accompanied by her puppies. His "Rasetsu/Bust" form appears as a separate character from him in Samurai Shodown VI.

His origin come from the manga Animal Doctor, in which the main character has a Siberian Husky. According to one of the series creators, Yasushi Adachi, his wife was reading the manga at the time and he wanted to make Galford a character that would be popular with the female market.

His father was a kind and just sheriff. An iron hand against evil and injustice, many outlaws sought to end his life. He was shot and killed by a criminal while covering a young Galford with his body. His father's dying words were to "become strong", and he swore to fulfill his father's last wish. Galford took the bullet that killed his father and carried it with him.
