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 failed.
Racing was always a part of Michael's life, even before he was a F-Zero pilot. When he was young, he would often outmaneuver police cars in stolen vehicles. It had always been a part of his life in the gang he joined after his parents were killed in a drive-by shooting. In the gang it was a constant competition for attention - he got his from being the best at racing. So good, in fact, that he is the leader of a racing clan known as the Bloody Chains in the city of Angelopolis on Mandrill 4.
At the group's height, it contained 10,000 members. Michael joined the F-Zero circuit to represent his organization and his entry was funded by the organization. His lack of wins has caused a lot of members to leave and the organization's membership has drastically decreased. If things continue the way they do, it's rumored the group could dissolve in the next several years. Because of this, he's gotten more aggressive on the track. Oddly enough, he listens to a combination of Heavy Metal and Opera while racing, because it reminds him of his parents.
Michael Chain has made an appearance in the anime F-Zero: GP Legend voiced by Dan Green. In this show, his gang was called the Space Racer Clan rather than the Bloody Chain. 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, Mrs. Arrow, and Captain Falcon. Michael Chain eventually escaped after that.
Michael Chain (somewhat) resembles the worldwide-known boxer Mike Tyson. They both have the same skin tone, they have interests in boxing, and they have the same first name.
