A man who can flexibly rush to people's aid no matter the task, be it festivals or a revitalization project. Cheerful and bold, he closes the distance between himself and others, no matter who they may be. With a gentle, light singing voice, his performances are daring, but mindful of others.
Madara is a very tall, strong, and energetic young man. He has long spiky brown hair that stops just above his shoulders with bangs parted to the right. He styles his hair in a half ponytail with braids on both sides. He has teal eyes.

Madara has a jolly, outgoing demeanour, and brings a smile wherever he goes. He’s overly-friendly, but that doesn’t prevent his occasional brutal honesty. Many characters find his vigour to be annoying, but they don’t dislike him as a person.
He calls himself "Mama" in an effort to project the accepting, maternal nature of mothers, as well as the fact that Madara wants to experience the failure that comes with being unable to truly assume this role. He makes an effort to act very motherly to those around him, and he often requests for everyone to refer to him as “Mama”, though very few do.
He travels far and wide, making him an elusive figure. He always lives in the moment and follows his whims. However, in anyone’s hour of need, he can be found helping out in any way he can.
He is fiercely protective of those who he cares about, and will go to any length to keep them safe, even if this means defying moral and social norms. He threatens anyone who would endanger the happiness of the people close to him, and would resort to physical violence if the need arose.
He is extremely physically affectionate, and has no sense of personal space whatsoever. He frequently lifts up fellow idols, carrying them around in a display of both strength and endearment. He’s always singing praises about those around him, such as complimenting them on their appearance or appeal.
He lists being compared to others under his dislikes, as he feels isolated for his talents. He’s extremely skilled; fluent in multiple languages, able to play a variety of instruments, a powerful fighter, and a highly skilled idol to boot. He doesn’t like when people praise him as better than them for his talents. He acts as a solo unit for personal reasons, but frequently gets lonely, and uses his privileges as a solo unit to join in the fun with others.
Madara's first name (斑) means "spots" or "speckles"; however an alternate meaning of his name, if read as mura, can mean "capricious/fickle", denoting his unpredictable personality. Mikejima (三毛縞) means "tricolor stripes", as mike (三毛) means "calico" or "a cat with three colors of fur" (often calico or tortoiseshell cats) and jima (縞) means "stripes," relating to Madara's overall cat motif.

Voice actor comment
"The recording sessions finished well without a hitch. During the performance, I strived to portray a feeling of 'though he causes people to become irritated, there's just no way to dislike him; in addition he's very cute' sort of feel to the character." (Enstars!)
