Max the Monkey is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is an anthropomorphic monkey from another dimension set in the recent past.


Max is a red anthropomorphic monkey with tan skin and black eyes, and he has a short tail. For attire, he wears white gloves.


Amy's New Hobby

One day, Max would appear outside of Amy's house and read one of her many comic stories that Tails showed to the entire village. While there, he noticed Amy acting distraught when Sonic took a look at her work.[1]


  • Max is based on the character from the scrapped "Sonic the Hedgehog Band", which appeared in concept artwork prior to the release of the original Sonic the Hedgehog; the band was supposed to play music when a player accessed the Sound Test option of the game.
