- "Ha ha ha! I'm strong!"
- Not to be confused with Balrog, whose name in Japanese is also Mike.
Mike is a non-playable character from the Street Fighter series who only appeared in the original Street Fighter game as one of the ten computer-controlled opponents. He is a heavyweight boxer who fights in front of Mt. Rushmore. He got kicked out of boxing because he killed someone.
He participates in the first World Warrior Tournament in order to make some money for a living, and to help his hospitalized little sister. Sadly, he was forced out of the tournament after losing to Ryu and hasn't been seen since.
- Many fans believe that he is the African-American fighter that was punched in the intro to Street Fighter II by what fans believe to be Joe.
- Mike is also believed to have been Balrog (whose Japanese name is Mike Bison). Capcom, however, because of lawsuit issues, have been very insistent that they were always meant to be two different characters. On 2010-03-26, assistant producer of Street Fighter IV, Natsuki Shiozawa, wrote on Capcom's official blog that "One probably would believe it's one and the same character!".
- Aside from the original game, Mike and Joe were the only fighters never to be officially featured in any other Street Fighter related media.
