Miguel Caballero Rojo grew up in a strict family with parents who wanted to lead him on a straight path. However, Miguel was too hot-blooded to settle for a routine and abide by rules. His rebellious nature led to countless fights with other people and conflicts with his parents, eventually forcing him to leave home and begin his independent life when he was just 15.
After cutting contact with his family, his dear sister was the only one who kept contact with Miguel. The two would meet in secret from time to time and share about the goings of their lives. During one such visit, Miguel's sister told him about her upcoming wedding. He was initially concerned and outraged, almost going as far as killing her future husband, but stopped, realizing that it would break her heart.
When the day had come, Miguel attended the wedding, watching it from a distance to avoid confronting his parents. Suddenly, a formation of planes appeared in the sky. In a few moments, the joyous event turned into a bloodbath as the church got bombed. Despite being injured himself, Miguel ran into the collapsed building and looked for his sister, only to find her dead.
Miguel was enraged and started looking for who was responsible, eventually learning that Mishima Zaibatsu was behind the raid. He immediately decided to pursue Jin Kazama, the leader of Mishima Zaibatsu and the one who ordered the bombing.
Miguel has gotten close to achieving his goal during the sixth and seventh King of Iron Fist tournaments, almost killing Jin but letting him go. Instead of giving him a quick death, Miguel wants to prolong Jin's suffering, ending it only after he had enough to make up for his terrible deeds.
Miguel is an intense, hot-blooded man driven by his emotions. While not outwardly antagonistic, Miguel only displayed his gentle side around his sister. Even when it comes to his fighting style, Miguel showcases his wild personality with yelling, wide swings, and imposing stance.
Miguel is a very tall, muscular man with short curly hair. His original outfit was that of a matador with tall black boots, black taleguilla pants with golden decorations on the sides, and a white embroidered shirt with rolled-up sleeves. In Tekken 7, he received a redesign, now wearing tall black boots, black dress pants, black gloves, a mostly unbuttoned white shirt, and a very elaborate red leather jacket with golden decorations and fur.
Fitting his personality, Miguel is a rushdown and offense-oriented character. His toolkit makes Miguel very intimidating in close range, with solid pokes and mixups that chip away at opponents' health and feature counter hit launchers that disincentivize opponents from trying to interrupt or launch counter offense. To make up for his incredible prowess in close range, Miguel struggles at mid and long distances. Most of his moves lack the range to keep opponents out, and his approach tools carry a decent amount of risk, opening him up for severe punishment.
