Mike dreamt of being a scarer, even if he wasn’t exactly “scary.” Things got even worse for this character when he was expelled from the Monsters University scaring program.

Did Mike and Sulley actually win the “Scare Games” at their college? Here’s what we know about the Monsters Inc. prequel, titled Monsters University

Mike and Sulley appeared in the Disney and Pixar animated film ‘Monsters University’

Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan are best friends and co-workers. These monsters started out as enemies, though. Disney and Pixar fans learned more about this dynamic duo with the animated film Monsters University

“Just another adventure of them would’ve been fine, but it’s not what they do,” actor Billy Crystal said during an interview with Collider. “They value the story here. They value telling the right kind of story. No matter how good a sequel idea might have been, it would’ve been a sequel. This is a different movie. I love it because you’re finding out new things about them.”

As college students who were kicked out of the scare program, Mike and Sulley teamed up to compete in the “Scare Games.” If their team won, the dean promised they would be scarers again. If not, the dean would remove them from Monsters University. As a result, Sulley cheated to ensure their success.

Did Mike and Sulley win the Scare Games?

Mike was the heart and soul of his team. However, this monster wasn’t exactly “scary.” When it came to the scare games, Sulley cheated to make sure his team would win. This character tampered with the scare simulator to ensure Mike would pass with flying colors. 

Of course, when his teammates found out, they weren’t happy with this half-earned win. Fans will never know if Oozma Kappa actually beat the “Roars.” It was too late for redemption, though. Mike and Sulley were kicked off of campus. 

The reputation of Roar Omega Roar was tarnished. Randall would also never forgive Sullivan for his humiliating experience while competing. It all worked out in the end, though. Mike and Sulley worked from the bottom up, eventually becoming a scare team at Monsters Inc.
