Who is Mike Barnes and what happens to him in Cobra Kai season 5
The Karate Kid 3’s Mike Barnes is played by Sean Kanan. In that movie, he was a bad guy who was called “Karate’s Bad Boy.” Silver asked him to help him beat Daniel in the All Valley tournament.
The plan was for Mike to win a point against Daniel, then do something to get the point taken away as a penalty, and so on until the sudden death round.
Then, the plan was to win in one strike and bring the trophy back to Cobra Kai. Daniel wasn’t doing well against Mike, but some advice from Mr. Miyagi helped him get back on his feet, and in the sudden death round, Daniel scored the winning point.
Mike is no longer a bad guy in Cobra Kai season 5, though. He owns a furniture store and says that after the All Valley, he was banned from karate.
When Daniel goes to Mike’s shop, he thinks he’s working with Silver again, but Mike surprises him by being nice, and he even gives Daniel some helpful information. But it doesn’t work, and Terry ends up setting fire to Mike’s store.
In the end, Mike comes back to get even with Daniel, but he soon realizes that Silver is really his enemy. He goes straight to Silver’s house with Johnny and Chozen, where he is quickly knocked out.
Lucky for Johnny, though, he wakes up just in time to save him from a beating that could have killed him. After the fight at the Cobra Kai dojo, Mike shows up with a valuable painting he stole from Silver’s house and plans to sell. This should help him make up for the loss of his business.
