The first film, ''Mad Max'', is set [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture "A Few Years From Now"]] at a time where [[TerminallyDependentSociety scarcity of oil]] is [[JustBeforeTheEnd beginning to cause the collapse of civilization]] -- law and order is barely holding on within the towns while the highways are controlled by the outlaw gangs. Max Rockatansky is a Main Force Patrol cop, held in high regard by his boss and peers, with a happy home with his wife and young son -- until run-ins with the motorcycle gang led by the villainous charismatic [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Toecutter]] cause his life to fall apart. Max famously goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge at the film's climax, but by the end he has lost everything. Made with practically no money and released in 1979, the film was surprisingly successful in Australia and around the world to the point where it was in ''The Guinness Book of World Records'' for decades as the most profitable film ever made. However, it was barely noticed in America, where it was only given limited release and all the characters' voices had been dubbed with American accents because distributors thought the audience wouldn't understand what they were saying.

* WorldBuilding: One could argue that the world that George Miller created is the real star of the movies. Each movie contributes to this creation in their own way and through different eyes and methods. ''Fury Road'' became especially notable for building its part of the world with an almost complete lack of exposition.

** Once Max quits the force around halfway through the first movie, Fifi, Roop and Charlie are never seen again. Their absence may be explained by a DeletedScene cited on [[http://www.madmaxmovies.com/mad-max/filming-locations/mad-max-cut-scenes/index.html the Mad Max Movies page]]. One scene claims that Fifi, Roop, and Charlie get killed in an attack by the bikers on the MFP headquarters. However, this footage has [[MissingEpisode yet to be found]]. However, the first Fury Road comic book shows that Roop and Charlie became soldiers in Immortan Joe's army.

A video game by the developers of the ''VideoGame/JustCause'' games was released on September 1, 2015 for PC, XboxOne, and PlayStation4. It was originally announced as a tie-in game to ''Fury Road'', then was said to be an alt-universe standalone game, but was ultimately revealed to be something of a hybrid between the two. The plot is that Max was attacked by Scabrous Scrotus, one of Immortan Joe's sons, and has his beloved V8 Interceptor stolen for parts and he ends up working with Chumbucket, a deformed mechanic/blackfinger. Chumbucket sees Max as an Angel sent by the god Combustion to help him complete his car, the Magnum Opus. Max simply sees Chumbucket as a means of getting a replacement vehicle so that he can finally reach an area of the Wasteland called the Plains of Silence and find peace in a world gone mad.
