Space Michael is a well-known super star of the galaxy, over in the Space Channel 5 series.
Super star Space Michael has an impressive dance energy that can make the whole galaxy groove. Granted, it’s not as strong as President Peace’s power of song, but it can still get the job done.
His dance moves can transcend time and space.
After the Morolian invasion, Space Michael was the first candidate chosen for the position of station chief of Space Channel 5.

- During the development of Space Channel 5, Michael Jackson approached Sega and expressed an interest in the game. Unfortunately, since the game was so close to being finished his character was only given a brief cameo in the final report. Space Michael received a larger part in Part 2 though when he became station chief of Channel 5.
- In the Japanese version of Space Channel 5 Part 2, all of Space Michael's lines are subtitled.
- Space Michael's outfit design is likely based on his outfit from his 1995 song, 'Scream.'
- It is possible to make Space Michael smile in his Space Channel 5 Part 2 profile, like some other characters, but it is impossible to see his face while smiling clearly because of the pose he takes.
- Space Michael pronounces Ulala's name as 'You-lah-lah', which is considered to be incorrect. It is possibly a fun charm Michael Jackson added to his character after he got a bigger role in the sequel, because in his brief cameo in the first game, he pronounced Ulala correctly.
- Concept Art reveals that Space Michael was to be absent in the Report 6 of Part 2, as Ulala was just seen with Pudding, Pine, Jaguar and a regular Morolian.
- According to the Gyun Gyun Guide Book, Space Michael is a reporter for the show "Star News Station" in Part 1.
