    Playable Characters


"I guess it's easiest to start at the beginning."
Voiced by Megumi Kubota (Japanese) and Scott Menville (English).

The son of the wealthiest man in the town of Palm Brinks. Max is a kind 13-year-old kid, who's also handy with a camera and has a very strong knowledge of machinery. He has been chosen by the Red Atlamillia. His weapons of choice are Wrenches, Hammers, and Guns, and he can control Steve the Ridepod after he helps Cedric fix it up.

  • Adventurer Outfit: His Explorer's Outfit.
  • Badass Normal: Aside from having the Atlamillia, Max has no magic or special powers. On the other hand, Elena theorizes that his prowess comes from being descended from two different eras.
  • Captain Obvious
  • Drop the Hammer: Some of his wrenches build up to such.
  • Dual Wielding: A wrench/hammer and gun.
  • Firing One-Handed: Since he holds the wrench in his other hand...
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Can create a slew of unique items and weapons, all while taking ideas from random doodads and even attacks he sees.
  • The Gunslinger: The type he is depends on what kind of gun you have and how you wanna play.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Max is generally a pretty Nice Guy.
  • Improbable Weapon User: A wrench as a melee weapon.
    • Also, one of his hammers is a turtle shell on a stick, which can be upgraded to a frozen tuna.
  • Instant Expert: The moment he fights in combat, he shows no trouble in doing so. Elena theorizes that this is because he's descended from two different eras.
  • In the Blood: Supposedly, where his skill comes from. Being a child of the past and the future is where his mother theorizes his skill came from. Considering she's a Rebel Leader, this wouldn't be surprising.
  • Jumped at the Call: He was already quite eager to see the outside world when The Call knocked on his front door.
  • Kid Hero: He's thirteen years old.
  • Missing Mom: His motivation for starting his journey.
  • Mr. Fixit
  • Nice Hat: He has several.
  • Noodle Implements: All of his inventions, created from monster parts, household objects, and possibly even food. His very first invention is an energy tank made out of milk cans, and it only gets weirder from there.
  • Parental Neglect: His mother disappeared when he was young for unknown reasons. As it turns out, she was a leader in the rebellion against Griffon and couldn't stay in the time period. This causes some contention when Max finally finds her and she won't come back.
  • Spoiled Sweet
  • Tell Me About My Mother: Tries this with his father. It doesn't work.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Max is the main viewpoint character, due to the Framing Device of his letter to his mother, but he is essentially along for the ride on Monica's quest.
  • Wrench and Gun: His weapons of choice.
  • Wrench Whack: If not using a hammer.
