Why does everyone look so weird?


Mike is a human that got trapped in the Raposa world.

Mike's personality isn't deeply looked into in the first two games. It is explained that he is nice, according to what the Raposa have said. He is shown to have a lot of faith in people, seeing as he is the only character on Turtle Rock who didn't go straight to giving up when Wilfre threw Heather's Pendant away into the ocean. He is shown to be caring and capable of understanding different perspectives, as he did consider Wilfre's intentions in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter to be decent.

In Drawn to Life: Two Realms, Mike is shown to be compassionate to those in his community, specifically Aly. He is the main interest of Aldark and due to the crash, he shows resentment towards Deputy Snyder, the driver of the other vehicle. Throughout the game, he is the only character besides the Hero known to be able to travel between realms.

Drawn to Life[edit]

Mike gets trapped in Rapocity with two Raposa children. They are soon saved by The Hero who takes him to the village. The Mayor allows him to stay, and he stays with Dr. Cure for the rest of the game.

Raposa often ask him what happened to his ears due to the fact that they are unaware that he is a human. Mike often replies back in a confused and indignant manner.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter[edit]

At the end of the game, it is revealed that Mike was originally a normal boy living in Real Life with his sister Heather and his mother and father. One day they headed to the carnival and won dolls of Jowee and Mari. On their way home they crashed into a truck resulting in the debatable death of Mike's parents and Mike falling into a coma.

Heather prays to God to save Mike from his coma. He dreamed of The Raposa World which came into existence while he slept.

In the Drawn to Life: Collection and in later versions of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, the ending is modified due to a ratings complaint. Instead of getting in a car accident, Mike is hunting for fireflies with Heather during a camping trip. He climbs a tree in pursuit of one of the fireflies, and falls out of the tree, resulting in unconsciousness, after the branch he is standing on breaks.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii)[edit]

In the Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii), Mike becomes the technician of the village and is in charge of maintaining the Lighthouse.

During the first half of the game, Mike is away on unknown business. When the Hero and Jowee are exploring The Baldy Slopes, however, Mike returns to Rapoville. Mari explains the things that have happened thus far, and tells him that Jowee and the Hero are searching for the Eternal Furnace. After this, Mike runs off into the Icy Wastes, and the Hero must rescue him.

When Jowee and the Hero find him using the Frozenini, he seems to be unaffected by the cold. He tells the two that he had a dream that he would find the Furnace if he sought it out. The three return to the village and Mike marks the location of the Furnace on their map.

After this, Mike will stand outside the lighthouse on the far left side of the village. He does not offer any sort of challenges for the player. He can be talked to and will typically make programming jokes or tell the Hero about how welcoming the Raposa were to him. He typically ends his talks with "You have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?"

  • According to Joseph Tringali, Mike's full name is Michael Robert Row.[2]
  • When Mike is first rescued the message that pops up says: "Congrats! You found Mike?" this is the first time the game highlights that he is different. However, a similar message pops up when you rescue Unagi.
    • The question mark on Unagi's message may or may not be intentional.
  • There are several unused sprites found in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter where different characters are seen wearing Mike's clothes.
    • One of these sprites can be seen in normal gameplay.
    • These sprites tend to be related to Lavasteam.
      • This could be due to the fact that Lavasteam was the first world created for the game.
    • This may mean that Mike's fear sprite was used as a template by the developers.
      • Key's unused fear sprite helps to support this.
  • In Lock's Quest there is a Raposa named Mike who complains that there is no wifi. The fact that he is the only Raposa in the game may be a reference to how Mike is the only human in Drawn to Life.
  • In promotional artwork, Mike's jacket is green instead of grey.
  • In the canon ending of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, Mike is not wearing the same clothes as he is in his sprites.
    • This is changed in the non-canon ending, where his character is re-drawn to match the style of the in-game sprites.
  • At one point Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii), Jowee refers to Mike as a "gear head".
  • In the canon of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii), Mike builds robots, at least according to Heather.
  • In Drawn to Life: Two Realms, Mike has an entire set of unused sprites that are done in a different style than any other sprites in the game.
    • According to Chern Fai, this is because Mike was originally planned to be a playable character[3].
  • According to Joseph Tringali, Mike was originally designed as a human simply for the novelty of it.
    • This was because the plot of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, including Mike's coma, wasn't conceived until after the original Drawn to Life was released.
  • Mike is implied to be an adult in the Raposa realm, as Mari wonders if he is a father who cut his ears off because his kids were annoying him.
