Michael Chain is a tough-as-nails gangbanger straight off of the troubled streets of Angelopolis, a city located on the planet of Mandrill 4. He became heavily involved in the world of gangs after both of his parents were shot in cold blood amidst the crossfire of a gang war. To cope, Michael joined some of the roughest gangs in the city, aiding in their many heists as their getaway man. Due to this, he adopted an exceptional talent for driving, constantly pulling off risky tricks to flee the relentless Angelopolis police. After much success and praise for his gang work, Michael eventually filtered out of this world and formed his own racing-based gang known as the Bloody Chain, which he forcefully leads with the assistance of the Wild Boar, a machine he and his original Bloody Chain members put together. Such a move worked out in his favour given the staggering 10,000 members who eventually joined his ranks! He later brought his organization to Earth(and various other planets from time to time), constantly unleashing his raw, violent, criminal force upon locations such as Mute City and Port Town. At one point, Michael started to feel that he wasn't getting the public message of his gang out properly and entered the F-Zero circuit in order to properly advertise his crew, as well as fund it handsomly with the immense prize money being offered. However, it's been discovered that Michael's overall ruthless and hot-headed nature can constantly get in the way of his overall driving performance in the races, causing him to acheive low ranks as well as a lower member count in the Bloody Chain with each passing day.

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, Michael Chain was introduced as an almost happy-go-lucky-seeming fellow, always shown with a funny-looking grin on his face and positive remarks coming from his mouth, such as never having to work again after finally winning the one billion space credits offered for the race's champion. Despite this, Michael really set into F-Zero X's overall setting nicely, especially the overall grungy, metal tone of it all.

In the most recent console-based title, Michael Chain began to drift away from his supposedly "dark, rough n' tough" persona even moreso by coming off as an overall stereotypical cartoon villian, with a very bland central objective and a voice that you simply cannot take seriously. Regardless, his original biography based on a dark and troubled past masked by a life of crime and hard-headed emotionlessness still holds true in the official F-Zero canon.

Due to the lack of an actual storyline, besides being based off of the finale to F-Zero Falcon Legend(character-wise), Michael Chain makes a swinging entrance with his Wild Boar, boasting a fantastic body strength count at the cost of a staggeringly-low speed and boost stat. His overall grip, however, is moderate.

In the anime adaptation, Michael Chain stars in his first episode as a rather foreboding "Godfather"-type entity, leading the Bloody Chain to secretly control and exploit the lives of the public, such as the aristocrat known as Truman. It turns out that Michael Chain had forced this man to lure into his home and hold captive talented F-Zero racers which could potentially get in the way of Michael and his roaring victory on the track. He convinced him to do this through threatening his wife-to-be, Dream.
