Tropes relating to Max Mittelman
- Meme Acknowledgement: He seems to be aware of the jokes surrounding both Leo and tomatoes, and Gray's "Shut up, Tobin" line.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Much like Sam Riegel, a large majority of his roles are either Ordinary High-School Student or Badass Normal.
- His video game repertoire seems to focus on Agent Peacocks.
- Playing Against Type: As Inaho Kaizuka from Aldnoah.Zero.
- Also as Leo in Fire Emblem Fates. He used a more mature and older sounding voice to distinguish him from the younger sounding Kaden and Forrest.
- He also voices Albert in Shadowverse, who spots a Badass Baritone Large Ham voice.
- As Troy Calypso in Borderlands 3, a villanous livestreamer and the Chessmaster Sidekick of the Children of the Vault.
- Relationship Voice Actor: Have worked on several titles with Brianna Knickerbocker note , the three Eric(k)as note , Robbie Daymond note , Kyle McCarley note and Zach Aguilar note .
- Star-Making Role: While his role as Sewashi (Soby) from Doraemon is what got him a lot of recognition and popularity within the anime fandom, he would go on a big break as an anime voice actor with his roles as Hikari Sakishima in A Lull in the Sea, Inaho Kaizuka in Aldnoah.Zero and Kousei Arima in Your Lie in April. Saitama from One Punch Man helped to solidify his stardom. And then he voiced Ryuji Sakamoto in Persona 5, with his performance there making him a (comparative) household name.
