Rapunzel's courageous friend from Tangled.
As horse to the Captain of the Guards, Maximus has made it his own personal mission to capture the wanted criminal, Flynn Rider. He is Flynn's adversary from the very beginning and will stop at nothing to catch the slippery thief. Max can run, leap, and chase Flynn to places where every other guard (and horse) refuse to go. Maximus is introduced in pursuit of Flynn, with the rest of the Royal Guard, after Flynn took the tiara of the Lost Princess. Flynn manages to ditch the guards and temporarily shake Maximus by hiding in Rapunzel's Tower, but Maximus remains on Flynn's trail, and eventually runs into Mother Gothel (which inadvertently causes her to panic and run back to the tower, fearing that they found Rapunzel).
Maximus reunites with The Royal Guard in the Snuggly Duckling, and helps them find the tunnel that Rapunzel and Flynn escaped from. After tracking Flynn to a dam, Maximus accidentally causes the dam to burst, enabling Flynn to escape with Rapunzel . The next morning, Maximus tracks down Flynn again, and attempts to drag him back to the palace, but Rapunzel is able to befriend Maximus by being kind to him, and convinces him to call a truce with Flynn for the day for the sake of her birthday. Maximus unhappily agrees, and the group head to the kingdom for the lantern festival.
As the Festival day continues, Maximus notices Flynn's emerging feelings for Rapunzel , and loosens up a bit while watching Flynn and Rapunzel dance. During the Lantern ceremony, Maximus remains on the dock eating apples. Afterward, Maximus witnesses Flynn being arrested and crying out Rapunzel's name. Maximus gathers that Rapunzel is in trouble, and knows that Flynn is probably the only one who can save her. Maximus heads to the Snuggly Duckling and recruits the Ruffians to help spring Flynn from jail. Maximus then carries Flynn to Rapunzel's tower for her rescue. After Flynn returns Rapunzel to the King and Queen, Maximus becomes head of the Royal Guard, and replaced their swords with frying pans.
