* RevolversAreJustBetter: His trademark energy pistol is shaped much like a revolver, and its energy cell is swapped out in a manner similar to break-action revolvers. He sticks with it despite the [[MoreDakka considerably greater volume of fire]] that the more standard issue Earth-made [=SMGs=] that the rest of the excursion teams prefer.

Commander of the ship the ''Daedalus''. Not officially a member of the expedition, but definitely someone they can always depend on.

* UncertainDoom: The last we see of him, he's last seen fighting aboard a Wraith ship that explodes several minutes later. They NeverFoundTheBody and the characters even note that they've survived similar situations several times in the past, but the fact he never shows up again does suggest against his survival.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: His return was left open since the team NeverFoundTheBody. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he appears to be dead after all]].

For tropes applying to him in SG-1, see [[Characters/StargateSG1OtherAntagonists here]].

* {{Hypocrite}}: In "Prototype", he advocates studying a genetic clone of Anubis in spite of everyone at SGC thinking it's too dangerous - In "The Shroud", he recommends killing Daniel because of the potential threat he poses as a Prior. The hypocrisy is even pointed out in-show.

* PetTheDog: Even before being made leader of the Atlantis Expedition, he had a few moments to show that he is really more pleasant than any other IOA bureaucrat. For example, telling the whiny French representative to ''shut up'' and let Carter do her work (as in, saving all their lives), or leaving out certain details in his Atlantis reports so as to not harm the Command excessively.

The hypocrisy is even pointed out in-show. * ObstructiveBureaucrat: Though he becomes one less and less during his time in command. His character arc basically spans from being an antagonist, to being merely ''less'' obstructive than any other bureucrat, to being annoying and nit-picky but generally benevolent towards the SGC and Atlantis Expedition. * PetTheDog: Even before being made leader of the Atlantis Expedition, he had a few moments to show that he is really more pleasant than any other IOA bureaucrat.

** There is very little that Rodney won't do for the team, if pushed. He once spends the last 25 years of his life (in a deleted timeline) developing a holographic companion for Sheppard when a time travel accident sends Sheppard 100,000 years into the future.

* {{Expy}}: He's a simple, home-loving doctor who detests certain high-tech sci-fi gadgets with a passion and who always tries to find a humane solution over a military one. In Beckett's case, the technology he hates is powering Ancient weapons and spaceships as opposed to Franchise/StarTrek transporters, but his connection to Dr. McCoy is even lampshaded in-universe.

%%* HospitalHottie
to:
%%* HospitalHottie* HospitalHottie: He's quite a handsome doctor, which has not gone unnoticed in-universe or out.

%%* HospitalHottie* FantasticRacism: While no one in the Pegasus galaxy, save for the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy worshippers]], like the Wraith, Ronon ''despises'' them, albeit for good reason. When the team encounters the seemingly innocent and benevolent Elia, Ronon is never anything but hostile towards her, insisting that she's a killer and a monster just like the rest of her species. Even a human, amnesiac Michael got nothing contempt at best and outright hatred at worst from Ronon, which leads them to particularly despise one another after Michael reverts. He manages to get this under control in later seasons, though, to the point of being willing to work with Todd without constantly trying to kill him.

%%* TraumaCongaLine: Was raised like everyone in the Pegasus galaxy under the constant threat of the Wraith. When he was in his twenties, his planet was overrun, his 'wife' was killed in front of his eyes, and he then spent the next 7 years being used as a Runner for the Wraith in mock hunts. During this time he was lead to believe his entire race had been destroyed. He later discovered that some had survived, but many of them had become drunks and mercenaries. Some of his closest friends had even allied themselves with the Wraith. Poor guy can't catch a break.

Despite what Michael is always saying, he was a monster even before the other Wraith rejected him, which he proved in his debut episode; Teyla was one of the only able people who treated the human Michael with any kind of kindness, yet when Michael started reverting into a Wraith, he kidnapped her with the intent of feeding on her. His actions over the course of his other appearances destroy any sympathetic qualities Michael has, and in the end, he's driven by little more than spite. * AxCrazy: Once he settles as a Hybrid, Michael is clearly a bloodthirsty monster who revels in killing his enemies. * BigBad: The closest that the show ever got to a singular main antagonist. He fills the role best in season 4. * EvilIsPetty: Michael and Ronon always hated each other, but in "Enemy at the Gates", Michael is willing to take out one ship out of three.]] a moment (while the city is rigged to explode, no less) to behead an unconscious Ronon just for a trophy. Ironically, this wound up saving Michael's life, as Sheppard activating the Stargate before Michael could wound up killing the Hybrids Michael brought with him, and would have killed Michael as well if he hadn't stopped to try and kill Ronon.

* FreudianExcuse: He was betrayed by both humans and Wraith. No wonder he went completely crazy. * HalfHumanHybrid: Well half ancient, half vampire bug. Millenniums ago, the bugs they evolved from fed so heavily from the ancients that their DNA started to be incorporated into the eggs stem cells, creating the Hybrids that became the Wraith %%* KilledOffForReal

He goes on to convert thousands of humans into his Hybrid army without ''their'' consent. ** He claims to care for Teyla and her baby. As he proves at the end of "Enemy at the Gates", he's perfectly fine with leaving both of them to die out of raw spite. * KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Finally slain by Teyla in season 5]]. * NeverMyFault: Michael blames himself for exactly ''none'' of his own atrocities. To him, the Atlantis team is at fault for everything he does, due to using him as a genetic experiment. While they did set Michael on the path to what he became, in the end, it was Michael's own rage and obsession with revenge that resulted in the most horrific of his crimes.

%%* OmnicidalManiac
to:
%%* OmnicidalManiac* OmnicidalManiac: Michael's endgame is to wipe out all Wraith as revenge for them rejecting him, and intends to end humanity in the Pegasus galaxy as well, either by killing them with the Hoffan drug or converting them into Hybrids to serve him. However you slice it, it's genocide.

* WhatTheHellHero: Calls them out on their actions, repeatedly.

Being forcibly converted into a human (twice) and rejected by the Wraith turned Michael into an embittered psychotic hell bent on genocide and galactic domination.
