Max Tate, Max Mizuhara (水原 マックス Mizuhara Makkusu?) in Japan, is a happy, good-natured kid who always sees the best in everything and everyone. He is voiced by Ai Orikasa in the Japanese version and Gage Knox in the North American version. He is like a brother to Tyson and loves to laugh at whatever life throws at him. Max is a highly skilled beyblader specializing in a defensive style. He lives with his dad, who runs a local hobby shop specializing in beyblades, and his mother, Judy, is a research scientist at a top-secret BBA facility and coaches the American beyblade team the All Starz. After the end of the Beyblade World Championships, Max moves back to America with his mother to help her with beyblade research.
His bit-beast is Draciel, the water turtle. Max uses four beyblades in Season 1: Draciel Max, Draciel Metal Ball, Draciel Shield and Draciel Fortess. He has three beyblades in Season 2: Draciel Fortress, Draciel Viper and Draciel Viper 2. In Season 3, his beyblades are: Draciel Viper 2, Draciel Gravity, and Draciel Metal Shield.
