Industrial Illusions video cameraman

The video cameraman (ビデオカメラマン video kameraman) working for Industrial Illusions is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.

The name "video cameraman" is used in the Japanese ending credits. In the English dub, he was said to be an archaeologist.


The video cameraman accompanied Maximillion Pegasus and a photographer on a trip to Egypt to find depictions of the Egyptian Gods in order to incorporate them into the Duel Monsters card game. While Pegasus expressed his anger over their failure to find the Gods, the three were approached by Shadi. Shadi informed them that gravekeepers were using their dark powers to seal the God cards in tablets and that they would never find them themselves, but he had the power to show them.[1]

Shadi brought the trio to a secret subterranean passageway and used the Millennium Key's power to make them invisible to the on-duty gravekeepers. The videocameraman filmed their journey as Shadi led them to a room with the Tablet of Lost Memories, which contained depictions of the Gods. The cameraman recorded footage of the tablet and when they were done, he returned to the United States. Shadi understood that his actions may lead to terrible events, but was prepared to accept the consequences if it would allow him to find the holders of the other Millennium Items.[1]

While the cameraman was inspecting his footage, he noticed some symbols not understood to be standard hieroglyphs and figured he would have to decipher them in order to create the God cards. However his computers began to act strangely and Slifer the Sky Dragon appeared outside his office window, gazing in at him. The shock caused him to lose his mind. Likewise others involved in the production of the Egyptian God cards suffered mysterious deaths, through accidents or losing their minds in fear.[1]
