Pale Rider (ペイルライダー,Peiru Raidā?) was a supporting character in the Phantom Bullet Arc. He was one of the participants of the 3rdBullet of Bullets tournament in Gun Gale Online. Pale Rider was a strength (STR) stat-oriented player, who had three dimensional mobility. He was one of the two victims of «Death Gun» during the tournament.
Sometime between 20:00 and 20:30 on December 14, 2025, during the 3rd Bullet of Bullets, Pale Rider began pursuing Dyne to a metal bridge in the southern area of ISL Ragnarok. Upon arriving at the opposite end of the bridge a few minutes before 20:40, the man rushed towards his opponent, effortlessly dodging Dyne's attacks along the way. After crossing the bridge, Pale Rider used his shotgun to damage and stun Dyne twice, before finishing him with a third and final shot.
Just as Pale Rider was about to leave the bridge, however, he was suddenly sniped with a electrical stun bullet by Sterben, who had hidden himself in the forest east of the bridge. Helpless in a paralysed state, Pale Rider was then shot with Sterben's handgun at point-blank range, unaware that Kanamoto Atsushi had infiltrated his home in the real world and injected him with a syringe of succinylcholine at that very moment. Despite recovering from his paralysis, the player succumbed to the effects of the drug before he could retaliate, gasping for breath before being disconnected from the game.
