- For other uses, see Microphone (disambiguation).
Microphone is a dark grey wireless microphone. Her button is on her chest area, while she has a light grey collar around her "head". Another collar appears near her flat bottom area.
Microphone generally has a kind personality, but this is usually overshadowed by her extreme loudness and her constant shouting at times. Sometimes, she can control her volume using a button, but it has also been shown to be triggered by accident. In addition, she is very vocal about her wants and desires, as shown in A Kick In The Right Direction, and appears to be easily irritated (e.g. at Cheesy's jokes and at Dough and Taco).
Microphone is generally outspoken and honest about her opinions, noting that Soap's pizza looked unappetizing in "Cooking for the Grater Good" and affronting Dough in "A Kick in the Right Direction". She also appears to be easily irritated by others who disrespect or mock her, most particularly Cheesy, and often dismiss others' criticisms. Microphone's honesty can make her impulsive and lose control of her actions, often causing her to mess up in challenges or insult others. However, she begins to reflect on herself and attempts to practice self-restraint.
In "Theft and Battery", it is revealed that Microphone keeps a secret diary where she writes her inner thoughts. In her passages, Microphone becomes self-critical and writes about her personal struggles, particularly losing challenges and irritating others. After Taco learns of Mic's strife in "Rain On Your Charade", she offers her a deal to help in challenges and lead her on a more definitive yet fraudulent path to victory. Microphone is reluctant at first but agrees to secretly align with Taco.
Microphone begins to warily obey Taco's mischievous plans for victory, which start as harmless cheating in "Mazed and Confused". The plans eventually prove to be at odds for Microphone, who disagrees with Taco's endorsement for violence against others in "Kick the Bucket" and vouches for alternative means of mental manipulation.
After many episodes of cheating, she began to realize what she had done. In Hatching the Plan, she quit because of what happened after she rescued Fan from the Aliens. She quit listening to Taco, and decided to quit the game.
