Michael Chain is an F-Zero pilot in the F-Zero series. He pilots the Wild Boar.
Michael Chain is a tough-as-nails gang-banger 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 in 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 favor 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 handsomely 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 achieve low ranks as well as a lower member count in the Bloody Chain with each passing day.
Michael Chain makes several cameos in the game. His machine the Wild Boar makes an appearence as one of the vehicles seen racing on Mute City Serial Gaps. In addition, he appears with the Wild Boar as a collectible trophy.
Michael Chain returns to the F-Zero franchise in F-Zero U. Like all other returning GX pilots, Chain has been aged by 10 years, making him 49 years old in this installment of F-Zero. In addition, Chain's wife will make her debut in the franchise in this installment. His machine, the Wild Boar was given a better grip to compensate for the average boost, and the strong body.
