In this study, we will discuss narratives and discussions regarding Garshasb in Pahlavi texts. In Pahlavi texts, Zahhak’s demise is caused by Garshasb. This study will consider Garshasp, the epic champion of Garshasbnameh in Pahlavi Narrative and other Pahlavi texts. In Pahlavi Narrative chapter eight, Zoroastrian Saviors are talked about in which each would appear every one thousand years and according to Mazdistan, every one thousand and five hundred years. One of these saviors is Houshidar, Zarathustra’s child. After Houshidar settled justice, honesty and good deeds, Satan would dominate the world by creating Demon (Moloksan) that brings rain. In Pahlavi Narrative that is a remnant of middle Persain language, Garshasb’s deeds are narrated by himself and it is almost similar to a tale and its title is “Garsahb’s Soul Story”. In Pahlavi texts, Garshasb’s soul is questioned to have annoyed fire and he is later forgiven by Zarathustra’s mediation.
