* {{Everyone Has Standards}}: He's shocked and appalled at how [[spoiler: Hornet gave coordinates to worlds the Paradigm had protected to the Vespa for their aid in countering Plutonian in case he went rogue.]]

* CantTakeCriticism: As a hero, he had a big problem letting go of anyone who said anything bad about him, justified or not. Not as big a problem when he becomes a villain, presumably because when you murder people by the thousands you stop caring what anybody thinks about you.

* ChangelingTale: [[spoiler: He was an extraterrestrial probe that took on the shape of a human baby by reacting to the emotions of a psychotic woman that accidentally killed her child]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:He was "born" when the emotion-studying probe released by the Eleos reacted to the strong emotions of a distraught woman who went crazy with guilt after accidentally killing her child]], was bounced around between several foster families who rejected and feared him, and went through a period where he lived [[spoiler:as a WildChild known by the locals as the "Wolf Boy"]].

* FreudianExcuse: Zig-zagged. On the one hand, he got tossed from one foster home to another after his families discovered his powers. Several rejected him out of fear, and one mother even killed herself. And then there are the circumstances of his birth - [[spoiler:he was originally an alien probe that took on a human baby's form after reacting to the powerful emotions of a woman who went insane with grief due to accidentally killing her child, which might have corrupted him from the start]]. He also [[spoiler:lived in the woods as a feral child, known as the Wolf Boy]]. But he also got a few good lucky breaks, such as a caring foster father who genuinely wanted to teach him right from wrong, a girlfriend, and the love of at least 90% of the human race, but it wasn't enough. Then again, by the time he began getting his lucky breaks, he was already severely psychologically damaged. While he did have some good stuff, it didn't undo any of the trauma he already endured and presumably, he never went to therapy to cope with it (which would've done him a lot of good). Regardless though, [[spoiler:his biological parents even tell him to his face that the treatment he endured doesn't justify any of his atrocities.]]

* {{Expy}}: Max Damage combines elements of Metallo (especially the frustration at losing his senses when he powers up) and Giganta. Silver Age Giganta got stronger and tougher but less intelligent when she grew - Max loses brainpower more indirectly, through the severe sleep deprivation necessary to bring him up to full strength. His biker-evoking design, rugged apppearance and crude habits might be nods to ComicBook/ThePunisher and SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} as well (especially the latter since Lobo has faced Superman before). His habit of taking on much younger female sidekicks alludes to SelfDemonstrating/{{The Joker}}.

* {{Expy}}: He's a murderous, twisted version of Mr. Mxyztplk that is in no way played for laughs. As a possible ShoutOut, he bears a resemblance to Mxyzptlk's horrifying true form as revealed in ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow''. His ultimate plot of bringing in an army from another dimension seems like a nod to General Zod as well. A touch of Lobo is added as well in the sense that he's a Hunter that has a dark and crude sense of humor and is (in Orian's case, ambiguously) extraterrestrial.
