I feel sorry for the bloons. They're going to be so deflated!
~ Max when placed down

Max is a hero in Bloons Adventure Time TD. He is the first Bloons-related hero in the game, along with being the second hero to be unlocked in the game, along with Finn. He is unlocked in the tutorial grassland level "Bloons!", along with Jake. He shoots one dart at a time that pops up to two bloons at once. He costs $300 in general.

Players can also unlock an alternate version of Max called 'Juggernaut Max'. He functions like its BTD6 counterpart, the Juggernaut, but with a unique set of upgrades.

Tips and tricks[edit | edit source]

Max is the second tower that you place on tutorial.

He's a simple dart monkey but not like others because he can melt frozen/lead bloons for example.

He acts like a Dart Monkey with the More Ranger and Sharper Darts upgrade.

Be sure to go him with Treasure Chest Keys. You can farm diamonds and orbs because of his Bullseye ability.

His bullseye is the strongest moab class bloon upgrade in the whole game. If you put a lemonhope for him and the bonus of princess bubblegum then a B.A.D will die easily

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Use Stone of Ancient Knowledge, Engineers Blueprints, Demon Heart, Baker's Shard and Heart Gauntlets, lastly weapon as Splodey Darts

Version History[edit | edit source]


  • Buff.pngWeak Spots damage increased from +2 to +3
  • Buff.pngBullseye price reduced from $4000 to $3400 and duration increased from 10 seconds to 13 seconds.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Between the 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 updates, Max's voice actor changed, making him the only hero/character to ever get his voice changed in between updates. His former voice actor was Mark Garrison in 1.0.1, and in 1.0.2 and later, his current voice actor is Gary Furlong.
    • He still keeps his old quotes alongside new ones, however.
    • Mark Garrison, the previous voice actor, spoke softer, which portrayed Max with a calmer but smug personality. The newer voice actor, Max Garrison, speaks more confidently for Max's voice, giving the impression that Max is active and passionate for adventure.
  • Max's quote "Awesomer" is likely a reference to Ninja Kiwi's catchphrase, "More Awesomer".
  • Despite Max being the second character you play with in the tutorial, the game unlocks him as the third character, right after Jake.
  • Max has no quote for when activating the Bullseye ability.
  • Although in most cutscenes and in game models, Max is shown with a strap on his chest, this does not appear on the traditional art seen on his icon.
