Timon's neurotic uncle.

  • AcCENT upon the Wrong SylLABle: Constantly refers to Timon as "Tee-moan".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Years of dealing with the hyenas can do that to a guy.
  • The Cynic: Uncle Max is very pessimistic about life in general.
  • Disappointed in You: After being mauled by the hyenas, he is upset with Timon for singing while on duty. His voice even shakes when he says that he really DID trust Timon to help with guarding the colony.
  • Foil: Max is one to Scar from the original movie. Both characters are uncles of two major protagonists of the franchise (Scar for Simba and Max for Timon) who are (apparently in Max's case) high-ranking members of their respective communities and are not all that fond of their nephews. However, Scar was a power-hungry, sociopathic Evil Uncle who orchestrated Mufasa's death and blamed Simba for it so he could be king while not caring about how his rule would affect the Pridelands or the animals living there. Max, on the other hand, is an individual who cares deeply for his colony's survival and, despite being frequently infuriated by Timon's actions, deeply loves his nephew.
  • Grumpy Old Man: He seems to be one of the older members of Timon's meerkat colony and definitely has the attitude to boot.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: His constant anger and frustration with Timon isn't without justification, as the latter's antics tend to cause a significant amount of trouble to the colony and put their survival at risk.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Doesn't want Timon's help for obvious reason, but he genuinely loves his nephew.
  • Nervous Wreck: Because he and his people live in fear of hyenas and other predators attacking them (and Timon's nature to destroy tunnel systems), he's always on edge.
  • Odd Name Out: His name is American, not Swahili.
