In 2013, two videos from season 2 leaked on internet thanks to user from YouTube. They were trailers with two minutes or less showing some events of Season 2. Also, all the scenes related to season 2 were deleted, and never seen again.
The first trailer (below) was available in FremantleMedia's kids website, alongside with another one that Kirby Kowalski was narrating. The trailer shows a giant Makino Ship (that supposedly was going to be Alphalink), Metal Elementor roaring (which was a part of Elements of Surprise Part One, when Air Elementor invades N-Tek; later, Mattel reused and Metal Elementor was inserted in the scene), Makino recreating his armor, Ven-Ghan teleporting, and in the final scene, Makino Ships invading Earth. Curiously, most of the scenes used in this bonus was from Season 1, and only some scenes (that were deleted) from Season 2.
The second and official traler (below), was released in the official site of Max Steel and later on Youtube. In this version, the whole trailer focused in Season 2, especially in the new villains, adventures, events, and new Turbo Modes, while it also announced the Ultralink Invasion app.
With the premiere of the second season, the toy line focused on new character, such as Ven-Ghan and Metal Elementor, as well focusing on the invasion of Ultralinks since every line has the word "invasion". Like the previous year, the line is divided on three sublines, being those:
- Aerial Invasion: When the forces of evil launches their attack from above, Max Steel quickly transforms into Turbo Flight Mode and uses his amazing aerodynamic ablities. The T.U.R.B.O. Energy of Max throws him to the space with lightning speed and powerful artillery-tech maintain the invasion under control.
- Aqua Invasion: The entire planet is under threat of invasions and even the oceans aren't safe. Max can use his amazing and turbofied maneuvers, being offensive and defensive, floating or submerged on the depths, successfully defending the oceans against the aquatic invasion.
- Land Invasion: Mega villains, monsters and mayhem are a part of the daily work for Max Steel, so when a ground invasion occurs, nor the most powerful invaders can fight against Max's T.U.R.B.O. Energy and sophisticated weapons that Max uses to protect Earth from all kinds of enemies.
- Toxzon, alongside with Extroyer, made only five appearences in this season, which is less appearences than in the previous season.
- In the finale of this season, the Ultralink Invasion accords.
- Max Steel unleashes new Turbo Modes, like Turbo Heat Mode, Turbo Rocket Mode, and Turbo Spike Mode.
- Steel unleashes his first Turbo Mode, Turbo Mimic Mode.
- Season 2 forced more into the Ultralinks than any other villain from the series.
- Unlike Season 1, the Season 2 didn't aired on Disney XD, still by unknown reasons.
- Before the actual premiere of Season 2, there were lots of rumors about a character named Dark Titan, that supposdedly would be Max's evil counterpart, having similar abilities with his own energy, as well an Ultralink similar to Steel. Electrix, Bio-Constrictor and Dragonelle were planned to return. However, Mattel, as well some of the workers, confirmed that there were no plans involving Dark Titan, nor other characters of the old series.
