The resident BigBad was Skullmaster, a dyed-in-the-wool villain powered by the voice of TimCurry. While Skullmaster formed an overarching storyline involving his desires to TakeOverTheWorld, there were plenty of other creatures and stand-alone enemies that encompassed many cultures.

* LoopholeAbuse: "Only one who beareth the cap of the Mighty One" may escape the astral plane. After Talon steals the cap and leaves, Max argues to the portal guardian that as the Mighty One he's the rightful bearer of the cap whether he actually has the cap or not. The guardian concedes the point and restores the cap to Max, allowing him to depart.

* SkeletonMotif: The show is obsessed with this.
** The BigBad is Skullmaster who lives in Skull Mountain. In the finale he resurrects various villains from earlier in the series including a skull-faced cyborg, a skeletal cyclops, a giant flying skull and a big spider with a skull-like marking on its face.
** For good measure, the toyline also included Skull Warrior, Skull Dungeon, Skull Crusher, a skull with a snake wrapped around it and a spaceship shaped like a wolf skull, along with Skullmaster's fortress (which looked like a skull).

* NoReallyItsOkay: [[spoiler: In "Sirius Trouble" aliens appear and try to steal "the source of all power" from us. In the end it turns out what they use for power is [[SolidGoldPoop ''nuclear waste'']], and Max is immediately all like [[SheatheYourSword "You guys win, take as much as you want"]]]]

* AliensAndMonsters

to:

* AliensAndMonstersAliensAndMonsters:
** Usually played straight; they're often villains and true to the trope they rarely have any redeeming features or ability to be reasoned with. In fact, it'd be easier to just list the subversions/aversions.
*** In "Werewolves of Dunneglen" it turns out the werewolf is actually a heroic character who helps Max out against the real villain, a human scientist with a bad case of JekyllAndHyde.
*** In "Beetlemania" the characters spend a large part of the episode wondering why the beetle aliens and their giant guardian are being so arbitrarily evil, only to discover at the end that the aliens were playing this trope in reverse - because they didn't know how to communicate with us and humans like to kill bugs, they assumed that ''humans'' were AlwaysChaoticEvil.
*** In "Sirius Trouble" the aliens are set up as this, attacking Earth to steal "the source of all power" from us. In the end, it turns out they're only carrying out an age-old contract so old humanity has forgotten it. [[spoiler:When it also turns out that the "source of all power" is ''radioactive waste'' Max surrenders and tells them they can have as much of it as they want.]]

* EvilIsNotAToy: Violated by Max's mom, and lampshaded by Max, who comes close to dropping the trope's name.
-->'''Mom:''' Do you think I could possibly have [the idol]?\\
'''Witch Doctor:''' If you like you may have it, but I must warn you: this place is filled with evil.\\
'''Max:''' Mom, oh, uh... I don't think it's such a good idea messing around with evil. Call it a hunch.

** FridgeBrillience: 'Chicken' used to only mean baby fowl. Perhaps Virgil doesn't like being essentially called a 'baby.'

* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:Implied with Skullmaster's pet dragon. At the end of the episode "Blood of the Dragon" Skullmaster is poised to finally destroy Max and his friends and his dragon is about to roast them all with its fire breath, but is stopped when Norman chucks a boulder into the beast's nose, and in its flailing not only does it let them escape it also accidentally throws Skullmaster into the ocean. We never see what, if any, punishment Skullmaster gives his pet, but considering it's ''never seen again'' it's probably safe to assume it was a harsh one.]]
