Michael (Tall Goth)
|Voiced by||Matt Stone|
Michael, the tall Goth, is in the fifth grade, is likely half-Asian, and often the group's leader. His mother is of East Asian descent, and his father is an older man with a large nose and curly hair like him.
He has stated "love didn't work" for them, which could mean they have a difficult relationship or that his father may have remarried. He considers himself the 'least conformist' of them all and has attended anger management therapy in "T.M.I.". He is the lead vocalist in the Goth Kids' band.
The Goths debuted in Season 7's "Raisins". Up until Season 17's "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers", Michael was referred to only as "Tall Goth" and had not been given a name in the show or internal scripts.
Michael is virtually never seen without the other members of the Goth Kids, and his primary allegiance almost always lies with them... but he was willing to join the Emo Kids when the end of their clique seemed inevitable.

A significant quest in the game involves courting the Goth Kids' allegiance and choosing whether to bring them to the Humans or the Elves. The player must find them behind the school, then learn to dress like them and dance like them to win their friendship. They then join the player's chosen race in the Battle at the School.
- In "T.M.I.", Michael became the only Goth kid to appear in an episode entirely by himself.
