Years ago, an alien scientist who was studying floating technology created the first Ultralink known as Makino. He had the same intentions of his creator: to absorb and expand. In order to do so, he linked with his creator and he started to create more Ultralinks through unknown means to expand his empire. Something remarkable is that during Makino's creation, a small alien (known to be Makino's first victim) had the same atributes as an Ultralink (such as the ability of floating and the structure) appeared, which is believed to be the prototype of an Ultralink.
After Makino started to expand his empire, he started to attack many planets and absorbed them with his Alphalink (which is still unknown how Makino created it) with his Ultralinks, specifically the evil ones, which gave the Ultralinks a bad name. Over time, many aliens managed to survive from Makino's attacks, and eventually they created the Black Star Council (and presumably other organizations), whose main goal is to capture Ultralinks and intergalactic criminals.
The main ability of the Ultralinks consist in linking or bonding with objects or beings, where they enhance their abilities by assimilation.
They can practically combine with everything in their way, such as dead skeletons, rocks, humans, technology and more. When they combine with their target, they convert them into living weapons, enhancing the abilities of the host considerably in order to reach the maximum potential for destruction. An example of this is Bone Link's strength: he was capable of easily lifting a tank with his hands. They have unlimited stamina, being capable of fighting during hours without needing to rest and are highly durable. When they are linked with something, their connection cannot be easily broken, especially if it is a human, only if they suffer a emotional impact.
In their primal form (when they aren't linked with anything), they aren't resistant and can be easily destroyed with only one shot of a N-Tek blaster. In contrast, they are significantly smarter than humans, are capable of floating and can launch lasers through their "hands". When they are linked with something, their weak spot is located on the head, where the Ultralink is usually located. If the sphere is hit by something, the Ultralink will suffer considerable damage, staying distracted for some seconds.The Ultralinks are also vulnerable to the Ultralink Hunters' weapons and technology, which are capable of undoing the connection of the Ultralink without damaging the host at all. When the Ultralinks are removed from their hosts, they slowly lose the memories while they were under the control of the Ultralink, as stated by Maxwell McGrath in Max Steel: The Wrath of Makino.
Additionally, the host of the Ultralink is usually referred as "link slave".
OverviewThe Ultralinks are small parasitic aliens, with some species having around the same size of a human head and only one eye. There are many different types of Ultralinks, each having different shapes and colors. They usually appear floating and on groups. They come from the Ultralink spheres, which are stored on the Makino Deployers and when they are sent to the battlefield, the sphere explodes, leaving some triangles with the respective color of the Ultralink.
Through their information screen, they can analyze the host's potential. When they are about to link with something, they "explode" and generate triangles around them and quickly goes to the host's direction. When they start the link process, many triangles appear and start to form the shape of the body's host. When they are linked with something, they usually appear incrusted into the host's skin, which is the case of the Bone Links, Gun Links, Tank Links and other monsters. In humans, they don't change their structure at all, only creating an armor that partially covers the host's body, and giving weapons, which are always based on the object that the host is holding (e.g.: Kirby Link is capable of releasing a wave of soda through his cannon, which previously was only a cup of soda). They also create veins around all the body.
They are capable of perceive when other Ultralink is operating abnormally as seen in Lights, Camera, Max!, when several Ultralinks realized that Extroyer's Ultralink was operating in a undesirable way.
Their behavior are influenced by their commanders, who are usually very strict. In their first form, they usually are very quiet and may attack in every opportunity given, even though that this only applies to the evil Ultralinks. The Ultralinks usually are shown to be very agressive and competitive towards others and most of them fight for Makino's glory, even if this means their end. However, there are some Ultralinks who managed to broke free from Makino's control, believing that destroying planets and eliminating innocent lives wasn't needed, and eventually chose their own path. Those who have betrayed Makino and its forces were considered traitors and needed to be eliminated. According to Makino himself in Makino Strikes Part One, Ultralinks weren't programmed to choose, only to obey.
Ultralinks are genderless and it is unknown if they are capable of breeding, but they are most likely created through artificial means. They also have male and female programming.
The Ultralinks are divided into different subspecies, each featured by a marking characteristic, such as an ability or body part. For example, the Stinger Ultralink's name is based on the notable sting on his body.
- Stealth Ultralink: They are one of the most common species seen in the Invasion of Ultralinks. As their name suggests, their main strategy is use the stealth mode to confuse the adversary.
- Stinger Ultralink: They are tricky and fast Ultralinks, and use those abilities to trick the opponent.
- Drone Ultralink: They are mainly featured by their low intelligence - though that they are faster than other Ultralinks.
- Fighter Ultralink: They are considered the footsoldiers of the Invasion of Ultralinks, since they are very common. They are famous because of their speed, especially the red version.
- Raider Ultralink: They are very rare Ultralinks, usually not seen in every Invasion. However, they are "in the mood to fight" and can be very dangerous.
- Makino Elite Ultralink: They are the rarest version of all Ultralinks; capturing these are a big deal. They are highly agressive and can be very dangerous in battles, when linked with hosts.
- Unknown Types: Those types are exclusive versions that were only seen in the toy line, or occasinally, on the show, where there are some Ultralinks that appeared but weren't named.
- Omega Model: This type wasn't specified in the show, only stated by the official site. They possibly have the same structure as Steel, X376 and Extroyer's Ultralink in Ultralink form. In their monster form, they are presumably different as other Ultralinks, since The Elementors are all Omega Models, and aren't featured by the Ultralinks seen in their foreheads, but only seen as a red orb.
- So far, only two good Ultralinks were seen in the history, them being Turbolt and Steel.
- The Ultralinks are the rebooted version of a flagship device that was vital for Max's survival and activation of his powers. The Ultralinks appear as the rebooted version of other objects, such as:
- Steel is the rebooted version of the Biolink, mainly because he is charge of controlling Max's T.U.R.B.O. Energy and controlling his powers.
- Extroyer's Ultralink is the rebooted version of the Morphosos that converted Troy Winter to Extroyer in the movie saga of the original series.
- The Ultralink of The Elementors are the rebooted version of the weak point of Elementor. In the original series, his energy core contained the isotopes.
- There are superior types of Ultralinks named Megalinks.
- They are sometimes misspelled as UltraLinks or Ultra-Links by the Official Website.
- It is possible that some Ultralinks generate their own energy, like Makino, who is capable of generating and controlling a yellow energy which he uses to attack. Since this wasn't specified in the show, it is believed that some Ultralinks have the ability of controlling or produce different kinds of energies, like Steel does with Max's T.U.R.B.O. Energy.
- Steel is the only known Ultralink who generates hexagons while linking with something, unlike other Ultralinks, who generate triangles.
- It is revealed in The Wrath of Makino that every Ultralink created by Makino has a special chip installed inside of them that would be activated after his death. The chip makes a hologram of Makino appear, revealing the competition that happened in the movie aforementioned, consisting in battling against mental projections of Makino and eventually get the head piece, which would give Makino's powers to the winner and become the commander of the Ultralinks. Nonetheless, it was just a trap set by Makino to get a new host, so he could restart his empire again after his defeat.
