* TurnOutLikeHisFather: He does in "Disaster Dominoes", but is otherwise struggling with it throughout the whole series. He fears this trope more than anything, and his small doubt that his behavior towards Paulo as a perceived threat to Daisy is nothing more than violent misunderstandings is just a leadup to it.



* [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Violently Protective Boyfriend]]: In the process of thinking he's doing what's right for Daisy, he ends up hurting the people he thinks will mistreat her the most, and stays very wary of Paulo for this reason. [[spoiler:He ends up assaulting Paulo, giving him a forearm choke in the bathroom of a convention, warning him to not try anything to Daisy.]]

Added DiffLines:

* JerkJustifications: Lucy's toxic friendship in the early parts of the comic led Mike into becoming irritable and downright cruel to her come the CerebusRetcon, to the point where his climactic confrontation went too far when addressing her actions. He even spreads a little meanness his friend group's way for enabling her. Of course, he has a HeelRealization later on.
