Michael is the head of the racing clan known as Bloody Chain, whose membership up until a few years ago exceeded 10,000 members. He enters the F-ZERO to showcase his skills and to represent the entire crew, but his efforts are falling short and members have begun to leave the organization. The Bloody Chain member numbers have now fallen well below 10,000, and it’s rumored that the crew could be totally dissolved in the next several years.
Michael Chain has made an appearance in the anime F-Zero: GP Legend voiced by Dan Green. What his character didn't have in the video games is a kunai-tipped chain on his outfit. In his first appearance in "The Trap of Michael Chain," he forces a millionaire named Truman to capture top racers so that he will make it to the top for if Truman didn't, Michael would make sure his recent girlfriend Dream would have a bad experience at the hands of his gang. His plot was foiled by Rick Wheeler, Lucy Liberty, Super Arrow, and Mrs. Arrow. Michael Chain eventually escaped after that.
