Michael Max

Michael Max is a character in the Fatal Fury series. He is the friend and student of Axel Hawk.


Michael is a former heavyweight boxer champion. He is unparalleled in this title and is expected to maintain this status for many years to come.

However, Michael also participated in street fights and almost killed a man in one of his matches. Once the sports world seized it, he was revoked his title and kicked out of the boxing track. He participated in the exciting of the King of Fighters tournament and regained his lost glory in front of the world. Sadly, Michael was defeated by Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, and Joe Higashi during the tournament.

After the events in Fatal Fury, he is helping retrain Axel Hawk. This is evident in Axel's ending in Fatal Fury Special - where Michael is timing Axel's jogging- and later confirmed in the Garou Densetsu: SNK Fan Collection disc bundled with Real Bout Fatal Fury Special: Dominated Minds.


Michael Max's personality is very obscure. Even more than Hwa Jai's. He seems to think high of himself, but he's not a bad person. He is also seems to be a devout Catholic, as he makes the Sign of the Cross every time he wins a fight (or rather, a round).
