Pigeon (鳩 Hato), real name Saito (斉藤 Saitō), is an avatar character appearing in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. Along with Frog, he is one of the reporters trying to get a scope on Playmaker and the Knights of Hanoi. He has a camera attached to his head which he used for scoops.
Pigeon frequently suffers connection issues when in LINK VRAINS.
Pigeon and Frog logged into LINK VRAINS to search for Playmaker in order to get a scoop. After meeting on a roof top, he noted the large number of reporters besides themselves, and that so many of them were causing traffic problems. Frog suggested Pigeon to turn off his chat to fix the problem. When "Playmaker" appeared Frog wanted to begin the scoop, but Pigeon noticed there were other Playmakers nearby so he figured all of them had to be impersonators. While looking for the real Playmaker, a supposed Knight of Hanoi arrived, which Pigeon filmed.
Pigeon and Frog later filmed Blue Angel issuing a public Duel challenge to Playmaker. Before leaving to fulfill other commitments, Frog told Blue Angel to notify them if Playmaker accepted her challenge.
A few days after Varis's assault on LINK VRAINS, Frog and Pigeon contacted "Ghost Gal" for an interview regarding recent events in LINK VRAINS. Due to Ghost Gal's expensive prices, Frog spent all of his and Pigeon's budgets and extra bonuses. She gave them a data file with the answers to the questions they sent her as well as everything she discovered involving Playmaker as well and she witnessed during Varis's attack. Frog and Pigeon went to a private editing room to check Ghost Gal's data and prepare a big scoop, but before they could publish the article Yusaku and Kolter deleted it while cleaning "Playmaker" files across the network much to Frog and Pigeon's dismay.
Frog and Pigeon stumbled into "Ghost Gal" about to start a Duel against "Playmaker" which they recorded. During the Duel, they argued about what's more important, their report or Playmaker's title as "Hero of LINK VRAINS". When the Duel concluded, "Ghost Gal" deleted Pigeon's recording, leaving him and Frog without anything to make their Playmaker scoop yet again.
