Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mike V was the first professional skateboarder to appear as an unlockable character in the series, and also the first one to transition from unlockable to regular.
  • In pretty much every Tony Hawk game he appears in, Mike V always wears a t-shirt, shaven head and shorts. However, in later two Tony Hawk's games - Project 8 and Proving Ground - Mike eventually changed his style.
    • Project 8 gives him a later look with medium-length hair and Baseball cap, but still sporting his previous looks in TH's series.
    • Proving Ground breaks the rules using the latest version of him around early 2010's (hint: Battle at The Berrics 2: Mike V v. Chris Cole)
