|~ Mike talking to the viewers about going to miss talking to his personalities|
Mike is a contestant and the tritagonist in Season Four of Total Drama who has Dissociative Identity Disorder, where he triggers a different individual (alter) to control the body (fronting) without him realizing. He was eliminated in sixth place when Scott (A fellow contestant) forced Mike into doing what he wanted because he would tell Zoey about his Dissociative Identity Disorder (who did not know at the time). Eventually, Scott knocked him out with a shovel and Mike fought his alters for control. While unconscious, Zoey tells Mike that she was breaking up with him because of an alter, Vito, who was hitting on other girls, until she saw that Mike was knocked out. When he woke up, he confessed to Zoey, but she already knew because Cameron, another contestant, accidentally told Zoey while he was unconscious and a faint "Sorry!" is heard in the background. Scott won the challenge and got to choose who went home. Obviously, he chose Mike. To leave, the contestants were catapulted into the water, so when Mike was sitting in it, he gave Zoey a pendant of him and was about to kiss her when he was fired into the ocean. Mike returned as a contestant for Total Drama All-Stars (the first half of Season Five) as one of the two main protagonists (Alongside Zoey) of the half-season, and this is due to the fact that another alter resurfaced whilst he was knocked out in Revenge Of The Island. This alter (Mal) appears in Season Five and becomes the new villain.
He was voiced by Cory Doran.
Mike, the head alter, is the main alter and is smart, helpful and he loves Zoey, a fellow contestant. Mike can be snapped out of an alter if Zoey is in trouble or if someone calls his name (most of the time). He has a turquoise T-shirt with white at the sleeve edges and collar, plus upturned hair with jeans and Converse (probably). He also has a missing tooth.
Chester, an alter resembling an elderly man, always complains about little annoying things, much like an old person. Chester looks like Mike, but hunchbacked and wrinkly, and sounds like an impression of Abe Simpson, but older.
Svetlana, an athletics alter, is a great Olympian athlete and can do anything that is gymnastic. She has longer eyelashes and lipstick with a Russian accent.
Vito, a flirty alter , is a 'handsome' Italian jerk who flirts with whatever girl catches his eye. Vito looks just like Mike, but shirtless and has a New Jersey accent and a chain.
Manitoba Smith, an alter representative of Indiana Jones, can survive harsh conditions and can be triggered by Mike wearing a hat and looks exactly like Mike (but with a hat) and is Australian.
Mal, a so-called 'evil' personality, is the more concealed side of Mike, and he seems to come out of Mike's subconscious every one in a while. He has emo bangs, a significantly deeper voice, and dark circles around his eyes.
Here is how all of the alters can be triggered:
Mike is the main alter, and is almost always in control of his brain, except for when Chester, Svetlana, Vito, Manitoba Smith, or Mal fronts.
Chester is the old man alter, and triggers whenever Mike gets frustrated, annoyed, or angry.
Svetlana is the gymnastic alter, and triggers whenever Mike is in an acrobatically challenging situation (like Monkey Bars).
Vito is the Jersey Shore-esc alter, and triggers whenever Mike loses his shirt or when his shirt gets ripped off.
Manitoba Smith is the Indiana Jones-esc alter, and triggers whenever Mike puts on a hat (mainly a fedora).
Mal is the hidden/so-called 'evil' alter, and is fronting for most of the time in Total Drama: All Stars.
It must be made clear that these are not reliable examples of Dissociative Identity Disorder. If you want to look into the disorder further, please research from RELIABLE SOURCES. It must also be made clear that Mal is not an 'evil' personality, please research things like this.
According to Duncan, Mike used to go Juvie when he was possessed by his evil alter-ego, Mal. After Juvie, he seemingly got rid of Mal (who maintain low when he will arise again).
In Season Four, he was the one of the good guys, but in Season Five, Mal is stirring up things and making him do random acts of mischief and lots of manipulation. When Mike tried to stop Mal from fronting, he knocked himself out instead leaving Mal the one in charge all the time and leaving Mike trapped in his mind. When Mike tries to find his way to a tower he saw in the distance (accompanied by Chester, who was found selling skateboards under Mal's orders). When Zoey was in danger, Mike was triggered for a few seconds until Mal forced himself to front again, leaving Mike still trapped in his mind. In the episode "The Obsta-Kill Course," Mike and Chester find Svetlana chained and forced to make fish sculptures out of butter. Mike was able to break the chain Svetlana had on her by using a conveniently placed hammer and the trio continued their quest. Soon, they found Vito forced to do a puppet show with a Mal puppet. Mike asked Vito to help them, but the puppet came to life and started threatening them. Mike soon destroys the puppet and Vito is freed. On the hunt for Manitoba Smith he is chained and seems to be destroying Mike's dreams. Before the alters go on the quest, they begin to question why they're helping Mike, especially when Mal alters Mike's ID card so that Mal's picture appears. Svetlana seems to vouch for Mike saying even if he's an alter he would be a better candidate. Manitoba then realizes that the ID is just an illusion and Manitoba is now guiding the alters the way out through the tower.
