** When trying to save Hatchin from a corrupt circus which sells children into slavery, Michiko pursues them even as they attempt to escape in a hot air balloon in a coastal rainstorm. Michiko is so devoted to getting Hatchin back that she climbs the rope in the storm, shrugging off multiple tranquilizer bullets and still refusing to let go. It's not until Hatchin has subdued her kidnappers that Michiko finally lets go.
** This woman is really hard to kill, and she even nearly fell off from the end of an iron beam multiple stories high by being completely bound and tied to Nei Feng-Yi.

Even the guys who had kidnapped her were utterly speechless when she managed to pull Nei back in time.

* HairTriggerTemper: Not only is Michiko ready to throw punches and yell at people over the slightest upset, it's anyone's guess what will set her off on any given day.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Despite several clues that [[spoiler: Hiroshi is not the thoughtful and good person she thinks he is, Michiko still believes he's still in love with her]]. Most of the other characters see right through him.
* HotBlooded: Michiko takes a very impulsive approach to just about everything she does. Before knowing anything about Hatchin's foster family she decides the best way to enter would be by crashing her scooter through the window.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Michiko goes into a ballistic rage when she finds out the Hiroshi had been in a relationship with Elis, but tried to justify her having an affair with a married man.
