The Captive is one of the Mini Episodes released in the beginning of 2016. The mini episode is divided into three parts.
Metal Elementor seeks to release the latest prisoner of Ven Ghan. Now, Max and Steel must fight against Metallak and Earth and Air Elementor, but things are fully compounded when the prisoner is released: the deadly Makino.
The first part starts with Metallak yelling at Ven Ghan asking to release his prisoner, but he refuses and Metallak press a button and a door opens, where Max Steel, in his Turbo Strength Mode, was. Max jumps and punches Metallak and knocks him down, but he liquify himself. Upon Metallak's sudden disappearance, Max asks where he is but Steel says that he should first free Ven Ghan and later deal with Metallak. The villain later appear and attacks Max and Ven Ghan and in the process manages to deactivate Turbo Strength Mode, so Max appeals to Turbo Combo Mode, combining Turbo Spike Mode and Turbo Cannon Mode. Max launches some projectiles that hits the wall and later attacks with a one of the whips, making rocks fall down on Metallak. After Metallak was knocked down, Max activates again Turbo Strength Mode and freeds Ven Ghan. After thanking Max, Air Elementor and Earth Elementor suddenly appear and Metallak wakes up, saying to destroy Max Steel.
In the second part, Max starts the battle with Turbo Speed Mode and manages to escape with a car. While The Elementors were trying to reach the car, Max activated its flight mode and manages to get away, but Air suggested to Earth fuse themselves and eventually managed to damage the vehicle. In the fall, Max sees Air and Earth and launches lasers in an attempt of defeating them, but they fade away and ultimately managed to fully damage the car. After trying to get out of the car, Max and Steel are captured by Air and Earth while Ven Ghan is violently thrown in the floor by Metallak. Afterwards, Metallak manages to free Ven Ghan's lastest prisoner: Makino, who continues with his plan of destroying Earth with his drill.
In the third part, Ven Ghan warns Max that Makino would tear Earth apart. Max and Steel manages to free themselves and activate Turbo Nova Mode, shooting a powerful shot of T.U.R.B.O. Energy that knocked down Makino temporarily but didn't destroyed the drill. The drill goes to a layer of Earth where lava is seen. Meanwhile, Ven Ghan manages to activate the containment bomb that captures Air and Earth. After some work, Max and Steel managed to destroy the drill while Ven Ghan was fighting against Metallak, which later was captured by the containment bomb. Makino shoots a yellow laser on Ven Ghan but Max suddenly emerges and easily knocks down him. Max later says that he will have to defeat Makino again to Ven Ghan.
- The vehicle that Max used in this mini episode is the rebooted version from a vehicle that the past incarnation of Max obtained in the movie Max Steel: Dark Rival. The vehicle was also already introduced and reused many times in the toyline, for example in 2015, reinserted as the Multi Striker Vehicle.
