Michel Takaishi is one of minor characters of Digimon Adventure 02. He is the Maternal grandfather of T.K. and Matt.
Michel is a rather tall, muscular, and gruff-looking gentleman of French nationality. Like his grandsons, he sports blond hair, which he keeps cut short, and a full goatee. His blue eyes are extremely expressive, conveying his often bombastic and fiery emotions. He typically dons a cream-colored cravat, olive-colored shirt, tan pants, leather biker's jacket, and goggles.
Despite his otherwise intimidating appearance, Michel is a very kind and gentle person, as shown with his interactions towards T.K. upon meeting up with him in France during the invasion.
Michel is a fiery and ferocious individual when provoked, his temper causing him to fly into a rage. This has led to him challenging Digimon, who far outclass him in terms of destructive potential. Courageous to a near fault, he still remains calm and controlled enough to drive a motorcycle through a war zone with up to three human passengers.
According to him, his wife is even more fearsome and dangerous, leading some to speculate as to why she wasn't helping with the French resistance.
He is also shown to be rather chivalrous.
