Mikey Wiki

As a teenager, Mikey is a short lad with piercing black pupils and long, wavy colored but most likely bleached blonde hair tied sideways on top of his head moving freely. Underneath Toman’s trademark outfit of baggy pants, jacket, and beige boots, he is mostly seen wearing a white long sweatshirt.

He has a CB250T motorcycle that belonged to his brother before he died

However, since the second season of Tokyo Revengers isn’t out yet, we can’t say how Mikey looks as an adult. But, as an adult, according to the manga, Mikey has short black hair and a captivating Dragon Tattoo on his neck, identical to that of his fellow friends Draken and Takashi Mitsuya, which gives him an extra note of coolness.

Since elementary school, Mikey has been a phenomenal fighter with a strong sense of justice. Mikey is described as being strong and serious. However, he is more accurately defined as a very complicated human with a wide range of emotions and reactions.

 Mikey is stated to be an upbeat character in both anime and manga. He considers friendship to be the most valuable and precious thing in his life. We can see why everyone loves Mikey now!

It’s no joke that his casual temperament and aura have a sense of mischief and a child-like charm, but despite being the leader of Toman, he is extremely lethargic and unfocused when it comes to working.

Mikey may also act irrationally and whine like a child, but only when he is with his pal Draken, with whom he occasionally quarrels but considers one of his closest friends. But when Mikey takes the lead, though, he returns to being a fiery and dynamic figure, who everyone admires. Mikey is one of those characters that everyone wishes they could be.  He’s calm, strong, and an endearing figure.



Mikey was always supervised by his Grandfather, who was also a martial arts teacher, as a child. As a result, we can see how Mikey is the most powerful character. It’s because his strict Grandfather instilled in him a strong work ethic. Mikey shared a house with his Grandfather and only older brother, Shinichiro Sano.

 Emma, who also shares Mikey’s surname is supposed to be his half-sister. Emma is supposed to have moved in with the Sano family during her primary school years. Because Emma had a foreign name Mikey didn’t want her to feel left out, so he adopted the name, Mikey. Emma and Mikey are said to have a close brother-sister relationship.
