|“||Time to evil!!||„|
|~ Max's catchphrase|
|“||I feel being a contestant on Total Drama would be a great step towards TAKING OVER THE WORLD!! BWA-HAHAHA!! And also meeting people, I don't get out much. I should warn you, I am evil. I know right now you're probably saying "We've had plenty of evil on our show." To that, I say nay! You have never seen evil like me! I am beyond evil! We need a new word for the evil that I am! I've been working on that, but what with my French Horn lessons and the babysitting, there's just no time.||„|
|~ Max's audition tape|
Max is the secondary antagonist of Total Drama Pahkitew Island, the sixth season of Total Drama, turned anti-hero on "Scarlett Fever". He is a short purple-haired boy who is openly evil and takes pride in it. While he strives to be greatest villain ever, he is very pathetic at being evil, and usually causes more trouble for himself than he does for others.
In Pahkitew Island, he was voiced by Bruce Dow. In Total DramaRama, he is instead voiced by Tristan Mammitzch.
Total Drama: Pahkitew Island
In "So, Uh This Is My Team?", he chokes on gum Sky gave him, he is then places on Pimâpotew Kinosewak. He doesn't help much during the challenge.
In "I Love You, Grease Pig!", he participates by making the wild pig evil, making it throw mud on Dave, causing him to have a panic attack, and Max himself. As he passes to Jasmine the "evil helmet" broke.
In "Twinning Isn't Everything", he finds Samey interesting, thinking that she's "pure evil" for yelling at Amy, and forms a one-sided friendship with her, on his side. He and Scarlett formed alliance to fight with Dave and Sky by blowing a sharp needle to pop their balloons and they got hit by Shawn, swearing revenge and sneezes, bores Scarlett.
While Max doesn't realize it, Scarlett is very upset about being called Max's sidekick and tries to get him eliminated in Mo Monkey, Mo Problems. After Max complains about not getting any respect from Topher or Jasmine, shortly after being given a wedgie by the latter, he is encouraged by Scarlett to express his "true evil" to them by building a trap and keeping them there until they give him respect. Little to his knowledge, however, Scarlett plans for him to be the only one caught in his own trap so then he could get eliminated that night. After the entire team gets caught in the trap, Scarlett is not sure that the plan will work, but Max foolishly admits that he was the one who built it. While Max receives the most votes that night, Ella is disqualified due to singing against Chris' orders, meaning Max is safe from elimination.
Max continues to be a nuisance towards Scarlett during This Is The Pits!, as when the two are separated from the rest of their team, Scarlett attempts to ditch him by convincing Max to make a crocodile that confronted him his evil minion and, once this crocodile is revealed to be robotic when a stalactite crushes it, Max pesters Scarlett to suck the “crocodile venom,” out of his behind. Max and Scarlett end up escaping the cave by using an elevator found using Scarlett’s device, but Max throws it out of the door, much to her dismay. The significant amount of time they spend together makes Chris believe the two are in a relationship, causing Max to switch teams with Sky. On his new team, which he only spends one episode on, he gets along well enough with most of them, particularly Sugar who finds the way he talks about evil hilarious. This episode also shows his soft side towards babies that was hinted in his audition tape, enough to the extent that he does not want to give up his baby at the end of the challenge until he is forced to do so. While he tries to conduct an evil scheme against his former team in the form of throwing pepper at them, he is startled by Sugar, causing him to start sneeze uncontrollably and ultimately accomplish nothing.
In "Scarlett Fever", while the weather kept changing due to Pahkitew Island being artificial (and that Max threw up on the controls), Chris sent 3 teams into infiltrating the island to the control room to deactivate the bomb. Near the control room, Max attempted to type the code a few times, but gets shocked each time thanks to Scarlett's suggestion on making the panel run out of power. In the control room, when Max called her sidekick once more, Scarlett reveals her pure evil (yet insane) identity that made Max so scared that he sucked his thumb like a baby. After Scarlett was foiled and ready to be launched by the cannon, Max gloated that with her gone, he is the only true evil left on the island. Chris, however, decides that he is "done with evil for now" and disqualified Max, who is subsequently put in the Cannon of Shame by Chef Hatchet and eliminated along with Scarlett.
Max appears as Owen's cousin in this adaptation. He retains his goal of showing off his villainy, but unlike his original counterpart, this version of Max is not incompetent, but charismatic, manipulative and turns out to be legitimately dangerous, to the point where Owen is terrified of him. While he is annoyed with Owen for ruining his challenges, he does start to respect his cousin after the latter saves his life.
Max makes his first appearance in DramaRama in "Dissing Cousins" alongside the DramaRama counterpart of Ella. He emerges from the daycare's floor on a chair, introducing himself and inviting Duncan, Beth and Harold to be his minions. Owen recalls that he and Max once went to the zoo, and Max fed his stuffed animals to a lion which caused them to be banned from the zoo. When Max prepares the other kids for his trials, Owen asks to participate in the minion competition and Max accepts, even saying the two might be friends. He first gets the kids to escape from the sandbox, but reveals that he filled it with quicksand and then lets out a snake, causing them all to panic. However, Owen throws the snake as a rope and pulls the others out (at the expense of it latching onto Cody's head). Defeated, Max angrily proclaims that nobody won, turning the other kids against Owen. The second trial involves the kids wearing chestnut hats, and Max releases four squirrels to attack them. They all escape from the slide, but Max pouts that none of them has what it takes. Owen tries to get them to stop, but they mock him because he's "losing". The third trial involves balancing on a plank in front of a pool of toxic waste, with a mutated lion/alligator hybrid (who can talk) as proof that the waste is indeed real. Owen crosses it with no effort, but Max says he didn't win as the goal is not to cross the plank, but to survive, and tells his cousin to kick it while the others are crossing. Owen refuses to harm his friends, so Max kicks it anyway, but to his disappointment Owen rescues all three of them. Later, Owen and Gwen arrange to have Ella join the minion competition, which she accepts. She completes all three trials flawlessly, but Max disqualifies her because he doesn't like her. Horrified by the thought of not being liked, Ella transforms into an actual dragon and goes on a rampage, and tries to drop a terrified Max into the toxic waste. Despite everything, Owen saves his cousin, causing Max to thank him and the two reconcile. When the dragon Ella crushes Chef's car, Max yells that she is ruining his goals to destroy and leaves the daycare. Gwen tells Ella that Max is gone, and she turns back to normal.
