I'm not that loud!
|—Let 'Er R.I.P.|
Microphone, labeled The Loud and Proud, is a female minor one-time character on Inanimate Insanity and a contestant on Inanimate Insanity II. She is placed with The Grand Slams. She is voiced by Hailey Chapman.
Microphone generally has a kind personality, but this is usually overshadowed by her extreme loudness and her constant shouting at times. Sometimes, she can control her volume using a button, but it has also been shown to be triggered by accident. In addition, she is very outspoken and vocal about her wants and desires, as shown in A Kick In The Right Direction, and appears to be easily irritated and apoplectic (e.g. at Cheesy's jokes and at Dough). She makes a deal with Taco and is now questionable and suspicious, mainly only by Knife who seems to be the only one who realizes how she acts weirdly and keeps on running off to the Perilous Forest.
In her team, the Grand Slams, she doesn't have a very big voice since Nickel and Baseball thinks that she messes up everything. For example, Baseball doesn't want Microphone to be on the field during "A Kick In The Right Direction" and in episode 10, Mazed and Confused, Baseball and Nickel blame her for the tie. In "Tri Your Best", Nickel tells Microphone that people have found out her strategy and that it was never working in the first place, showing conflict.
Official Site Bio
Microphone is a very outgoing and friendly contestant who just wants to have a good time. Unfortunately, she seems to not be able to keep her volume under control, causing her to be rather loud around other people. This can irritate people very easily and helps and hurts her in many situations.

Microphone is determined to make her full potential audible to others. If she ever encounters a problem, Mic is sure to address the situation head-on and speak (or shout) her mind. As a result, she is easily misunderstood and usually has problems hiding her secrets... which she recently has plenty of. Although Microphone began this competition loud and proud, she has lost sight of her initial strengths and has resorted to alternative means of winning.

Microphone is known for her unique abilities, such as:
- Voice Amplification: Microphone can significantly amplify the volume of her voice. This can occasionally be strong enough to cause pain to others.
- Sound Waves: With high amplification, Microphone can produce sound waves that are powerful enough to move objects. She may use this to her advantage, such as screaming to move a ball to hit the target in "Kick the Bucket".
- Enhanced Hearing: Using the gain knob on her back, Microphone can hear faint noises from far distances. This is first showcased at the end of "Everything's A-OJ", but is primarily used in "Mazed and Confused" and on in order for Microphone to communicate with Taco.
