Mike Dallas, more commonly known as Dallas, is a senior (Grade 12) at Degrassi, originally from Guelph, Ontario. As former hockey team captain, Dallas expects to enjoy everything elite players revel in; puck bunnies, keggers and his alpha male status. In his original debut, Dallas was a fun-loving guy who’s never had to deal with real consequences for any of his actions. Dallas plays big brother to everyone on his team, teasing, laughing at, and mocking the boys in the locker room, but is over-protective in public, lashing out at anyone who crosses him or his teammates.
Dallas loves hockey, though he is unable to pursue a professional career in it after high school, much to his dismay. However, he is also interested in golf and has that door wide open. He's basically a leader who's misguided. In light of the deaths of his friends Cam and Adam (the former whose suicide he felt partially responsible for), Dallas has become a much more sensitive and compassionate person. He and his ex-girlfriend Vanessa had a son named Rock Dallas when they were 15, but almost no one knows.
Dallas is best friends with Drew Torres. He is good friends with Fiona Coyne, Alli Bhandari, who he has an interest in, and Owen Milligan. He is also friends with Luke Baker, Jenna Middleton, Imogen Moreno, Becky Baker, and Bianca DeSousa. He was also friends with Campbell Saunders before he committed suicide, and Adam Torres before his fatal car accident. He seems to be on good terms with Clare Edwards. He used to have a heated conflict with Eli Goldsworthy, Jake Martin and Katie Matlin. He is portrayed by Demetrius Joyette.

After Adam walks away, and Drew states that his mother would disapprove, Dallas says, "Who knew your sister was cooler than you," and Drew defends Adam saying that Adam is a boy and if he were to make fun of him again he would make Dallas' life hell. Dallas gives Drew a condom for "if he plans on swiping his V-card tonight."
