Makino (Max Steel) is the fusion between Maxwell McGrath and Makino. In this fusion, Max (being controlled by Makino) has similar powers compared to Makino's previous form, but are all enhanced with T.U.R.B.O. Energy. He debuted in Max Steel: The Wrath of Makino, and is voiced by Michael Dobson.
When Maxwell McGrath (in Turbo Nova Mode) has reached to a room inside of the dome, in where he finds Makino's Central Processing Unit. Makino's voice is heard inside the room, announcing that Max Steel is the winner of the competion and Makino's new heir to his throne. Max touches the Processing Unit, causing it to shapeshift and reveal Makino's Ultralink. Makino flies up to Max and links with him in his Turbo Interface (Where Steel links to). In the process, Makino took over the control of Maxwell McGrath, transforming into the new Makino.
When Max touched the processing unit of Makino, it revealed to be his Ultralink, and he consequently linked with Max through his Turbo Interface. Later, the dome disappeared, and every Ultralink and N-Tek saw what happened with Max, while N-Tek stayed on shock, the Ultralinks glorified Makino in his new form. Makino then escaped alongside with the Ultralinks, and went to a moutain, planning his next attack. However, while Makino was trying to create a plan, Max reacted and tried to fight against Makino, and they ended up in Copper Canyon, where Makino activated Turbo Annihilation Mode. Makino then started to destroy Copper Canyon with his drill. But soon afterwards, Jim McGrath and Steel appeared, in an attempt to defeat him, but Jim failed, and Steel successfully helped Max to get out of Makino's control.

His hair is being covered by a helmet of Makino's. Max's eyes are changed from blue to yellow. His skin becomes dark and has pieces of armor floating around him.
