Ultraman Max (ウルトラマンマックス Urutoraman Makkusu?) is an Ultra from an alternate Nebula M78 timeline that takes place some forty years after the events of the first Ultraman TV series. He is also believed to boast the fastest natural speed of any Ultra to hail from the Land of Light. His main M78 counterpart has made several brief appearances in the Ultraman Zero film trilogy.

History

Ultraman Max

A civilization observer, Ultraman Max's job was to study developing civilizations and help devise a way for the various species of the universe to co-exist. His later mission was the planet Earth which was facing a crisis brought about by man's folly. It was beginning to be plagued by monsters from Earth and Space as well as invaders.

Max observed Earth and witnessed the bravery of a native youth named Kaito Touma. Rather than leaving him to a cruel fate, Max merged with him and allowed them both to protect the people of Earth. After saving Kaito, Max began to fight monsters from Earth's past and invaders from space that wanted the destruction of either humans to have the planet for themselves, with DASH fighting along side him.

During his battle against Zetton, Max was being severely beaten by the legendary monster and would have died if not for the appearance of Ultraman Xenon, a fellow member of the Space Garrison. During that battle, Max gained the Max Galaxy, a multi-purpose device that saved Max many times afterwards and be used to destroy his old enemy Gilfas.Zetton's Daughter

Months later after stopping numerous monsters and invaders, the Delos civilization rose up to threaten the surface people of Earth. Max could not interfere because it was against the laws of his home world of the Land of Light to interfere with wars between native civilizations. However, Kaito stopped any such conflict, while also saving Mizuki from a near death experience, by making Delos change his mind and call off the war, they both agreed that neither side had actually wished for a conflict.

The people of Delos requested Max to stop their now rogue defense system, allowing Max to attack their super weapon Giga Berserk. However between rising to the surface and flying to battle, Max had little time to fight. Max lost to Giga Berserk and turned to stone after separating Kaito from his body. Unwilling to surrender, DASH revived the hero by recharging the Max Galaxy, which Kaito merged with and flew to Max to again merge with him one last time. After a short assault, Max destroyed Giga Basark and left Earth with Xenon to return back home to Nebula M78.Hold On To! Future

Ultraman X

"You understand how difficult it is to have faith in others now. But in spite of that, I want you to remember to always have faith in others. Having faith in others and responding to that faith is what creates real strength. That's what you two did today."

―Max, in Kaito's form, to Ultraman X and Daichi Ozora, X in Peril
MAX-X

After knowing that an Alien Sran named Quila wanted revenge on him for killing one of his brethren, Max went to an alternate Earth, taking the form of Kaito and exposed Quila as the villain he was to Xio, the attack team of that world. However, the Ultraman of the world, Ultraman X, was battling with Quila's Zetton at this time, and X fell into Quila's trap, his consciousness slowly being overtaken by the Zetton Armor that Quila had tricked X to wear. Max transformed back to his Ultra form to save a mother and daughter from a failing building, then joined the fight to help X. However he was eventually out numbered by Zetton, a controlled X and even Quila. Eventually, Daichi Ozora managed to rid the Zetton Armor's malicious programming, and X regained consciousness and protected Max. Max finished off Quila with Galaxy Cannon while X destroyed Zetton. Meeting Daichi and X in the form of Kaito, Max gifted them a portion of his power in a form of a Type U Cyber Card and then returned to his own universe. X in Peril

Transformation

Ultrmn Mx Kto Tm

Kaito using the Max Spark.

The Max Spark is a gold and silver trinket presented to Kaito Touma by Ultraman Max himself. When needing to transform, Kaito pulled out the Max Spark, which glistens with legs and places the Max Spark on his left forearm. Afterwards, the crest and color timer of Max's would appear and the transformation into Max proceeds.

Trivia

  • Ultraman Max's name comes from the word "Maximum".
  • Ultraman Max's voice actor, Kazuya Nakai, has also voiced for Ultraseven in Ultraman World. Coincidentally, Max's design derives from Seven's archetype and by default Ultraseven 21 (who was based on Ultraseven), but with elements attributed with the original Ultraman.
    • Ultraman Max's transformation scene is similar to Ultraseven's but Max's transformation does not start at the head. He uses the Max Spark which is placed on his host's left arm, it then releases particles which gather on the host's chest and forms the color timer and then the chest armor and turns the human into the Ultra. Max then grows to giant heights like contemporary rise scenes and in later episodes, that is all that is seen.
  • Ultraman Max is the second good Ultra whose signature Ultra beam is fired from his left forearm instead of his right, with Ultraman Zearth being the first.
  • Unlike Seven's, Max's irises are difficult to be seen normally. However, in Ultraman X, his irises are seen very easily.
  • Several of Max's kaiju, aliens and stories were based on those that appeared in Ultraman and Ultraseven. Later, some of these same monsters appeared in the Ultraman Mebius.
  • Max's Power Timer sounds are reused from Ultraman Tiga's, though sped up.
  • Ultraman Max vs. Hophop is one of the few battles that Max's Power Timer didn't blink.
  • Ultraman Max is the only main Ultra (Excluding Ultras made outside Japan) to not be the lead protagonist in a film, instead only appearing as a cameo.
  • Ultraman Max is the first Ultra to not require any maneuver to use his acceleration technique.
  • After Ultraman Max end, Max's speaking voice is voiced by various voice actors but his grunts produced by Kazuya Nakai are still kept and reused. However, in Ultraman X, after he gives Daichi and X his power in his human form, Max turns back into his Ultra form and flies away, at this time Max's grunt was used by Sota Aoyama, who played Kaito Touma and Max's human form.
