Michael, also known as the loneliest and ugliest boy in town, is a character used in a story on Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 3 to show Yellow Guy that everyone has a special one. He is often insulted by the townsfolk and he lives in a hole underground.


He wears a white shirt, black pants and shoes. He constantly smiles, and his head has only a few hairs on it.


He is very sad since he is often insulted by the townsfolk. He always smiles regardless.

  • Though he's sad in the story, he is always smiling. The reason is unknown, as in the story, he does not have a special one, even though Shrignold and Rabbit Boy say otherwise.
  • Joe Pelling, one of the DHMIS creators, has an animation "The Lost Coin" with the protagonist named "Michael."
  • Michael was the first character to have his name introduced onscreen, while the others either remain with unknown names or were revealed via social media. The second was Malcolm.
