* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Turned 99 into a DefrostingIceQueen and Larrabee into a JerkJock, but the most noticeable change is that Max has now a brain between his ears.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Turned Many characters act rather different from the series to the point of being extremely difficult to recognize:
** Max in the series was a CloudCuckooLander who was still (usually) competent enough at his job, a bit socially awkward, and occasionally busted out some snark. In the movie, this is pretty much all reversed - he's very down-to-earth, comes off as incompetent due to a lack of field agent experience, is a pretty smooth social operator outside of talking to 99, and is a definite DeadpanSnarker.
**
99 into in the series was a [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]] who highly respected Max, got disappointed with him at worst, and was very willing to be his partner (and had an obvious crush on him ever since the pilot). In the movie, she's a DefrostingIceQueen who has (understandably) ''very'' negative reactions to his incompetence, and seems to retain some annoyance even after they get together and he proves himself. She's also very snarky and irritable, even with other characters.
** The Chief in the series was the OnlySaneMan who got quietly annoyed with Max's incompetence at worst. In the movie, he almost seems to have a HairTriggerTemper.
** Siegfried in the series was AffablyEvil, considering Max a WorthyOpponent and the two being on very good terms, plus Siegfried in general was very hammy and a bit goofy. In the movie, he's... almost generic, with how serious and sinister he is, some viewers being reminded of one-shot villains from the original series rather than Siegfried himself. The closest he gets to being deliberately comedic is some snarky jabs.
** Larabee in the series was TheDitz, even more than Max. In the movie, he's a JerkJock.
** Hymie in the series was (after his first episode) as a pacifistic robot, who fought only when necessary. In the movie, he has a cameo appearance where he insults
Larrabee into and staples a JerkJock, but the most noticeable change is that Max has now a brain between paper to his ears.forehead in retaliation for a bit of PokeThePoodle.



** Larrabee in the original series is even more of a dunce than Max (he has been referred to as "Max's Max"), whereas in the film he's a jerkass but competent agent.

* {{Badass}}: Max when he's not so simple-minded.



* ButtMonkey: Larabee tries to act {{Badass}} but otherwise always ends up suffering [[AmusingInjuries grievous mishaps]]. Like having Agent 23 staple a document to his head as retribution for not unjamming the copier machine.
