Mike Morton, or the Acrobat, is one of 28 Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png currently featured in Identity V IconHelp IVlogo.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Mike Morton is a versatile survivor and can be very effective in rescuing and kiting. He was a former member of the Hullabaloo circus and one of its only survivors.

His bombs can be used to jump over map props like open windows, thrown pallets, and others. If used appropriately, the bombs will propel the player to a good location safe from the Hunter.

The Acrobat can also support other Survivors by distracting the Hunter with his different bombs and utilise their effects to slow down the Hunter or disable their abilities.

Background[edit | edit source]

An exuberant and cheerful man, he is a former member of the Hullabaloo circus and one of its only survivors. His only goal is to find the real killer who destroyed his home.


Mike’s birth circumstances are virtually unknown, however, at some point in his early childhood, he was taken in by a man named Bernard, whom he saw as a father figure. He was raised in Bernard's circus called "Hullabaloo" which is where he learned acrobatics and juggling. Bernard would often scold Mike for his mischief, such as wanting to put stones in his juggling balls. At some point, a bottle of strong acid was stolen from Mike; coincidentally, around the same time that Joker's face was burned. Bernard is implied to have suspected Mike of this crime, but Mike denies this, only mentioning buying another bottle of acid before Bernard finds out about this "mismanagement." Eventually, a disaster happens inside of the circus, leaving Mike and few other members alive out of sheer luck and the rest dead. After the deaths, Mike found that the only other survivors were a strange couple, one by the name of Natalie. Now desperate and having lost the only things that mattered in his life, Mike's only goal in life is to find the true murderer of those he cherished.

External Traits[edit | edit source]

Icon Name Description
Risky acrobatics.png
Risky Acrobatics The Acrobat carries 3 different types of Bomb around. When a Bomb explodes, it will temporarily change the ground's surface, creating a circular zone. Hunters stepping into this zone during the Aftereffect period will be affected by its effects, and thus returning the ground immediately to its original state.

Sticky Bomb: Slightly reduces Hunter's Movement Speed. If the Hunter is hit by the exploding Sticky Bomb or if the Hunter is repeatedly affected by its Aftereffects, the Hunter's Movement Speed will be greatly reduced.

Nitro Bomb: Slightly reduces Hunter's Interaction Speed. If the Hunter is hit by the exploding Nitro Bomb or if the Hunter is repeatedly affected by its Aftereffects, the Hunter's Interaction Speed will be greatly reduced.

Fire Bomb: It can burn Hunters and disable all Hunter skills for a period of time. If the Hunter is hit by the exploding Fire Bomb or if the Hunter is repeatedly affected by its Aftereffects, all Hunter skills will be disabled for an extended period.

How to use: Tap on the Skill button to leap forward and throw a Bomb. Hold the Skill button to charge and choose a landing area. However, encountering objects while leaping will cause the Acrobat to fall immediately.

Impromptu.png
Impromptu The Acrobat's behavior inspired him to create different types of bombs:

Friendliness: Rescuing 1 Teammates from the Rocket Chair allows the Acrobat to create an additional Sticky Bomb.

Tranquility: When the Decoding Progress reaches 100%, it will allow the Acrobat to create an additional Nitro Bomb.

Bravery: Being Pursued by Hunters for 60 seconds will allow the Acrobat to create an additional Fire Bomb.

Exclusive: The Acrobat lacks ingredients and can only create one additional Bomb per game.

Half-hearted.png
Half-Hearted The Acrobat is always coming up with new ideas and this makes it difficult for him to concentrate. Door opening speed is decreases by 30%.
