"Max Hass!"

Max Hass is a pacifistic member of the Kreisau Circle in Wolfenstein: The New Order. He makes a return in the sequel, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.


Not much is known about Max, except his name and that he doesn't like violence. He was found by Klaus Kreutz hiding behind some dumpsters in an alley and adopted as the latter's surrogate son.

He appears to have had severe brain damage inflicted by Nazi doctors, though it is not precisely clear why. Because of this, Max can only say his name, and is very childlike, as his room in the resistance hideout has a large number of toys and childish-looking objects.

However in the trailer of Wolfenstein II:The New Colossus he seems to be capable of aiming a gun and can understand what others say, showing that the brain damage didn't entirely cripple his ability to think.


Max Hass is a very large individual, standing towering over even Blazkowicz himself and is almost twice as muscular. A sizable portion of Max's head is missing and his head is shaven down to a buzzcut.

He is dressed in a striped woolen T-shirt and worn leather overalls. Max doesn't wear shoes or any manner of footwear. However in the trailer of Wolfenstein II:The New Colossus, he is seen wearing red bowling shoes.

The New OrderEdit

Max was introduced when he greeted the Eisenwald Prison escapee (either Fergus or Wyatt), Blazkowicz, and Anya Oliwa. Most of the time, Max is always lying around at the base and playing with his toys. When the Nazis raided the Circle's hideout, Max remained hidden and saved B.J. and Klaus from Nazi Commandos by killing them with his bare hands, but was too late to save the latter. After escaping, Max became very distraught of Klaus's passing and later helped in participating in the attack on Deathshead's Compound.

No mentioning of Max's whereabouts is made after Blazkowicz stormed Deathshead's fortress, but he is presumed to have remained on the Nazi U-boat along with Caroline and Fergus/Wyatt.

The New ColossusEdit

Max returns, continuing to aid the Kreisau Circle, this time aiding in the fighting, honoring the request of his guardian Klaus who died a year prior.

Trivia Edit

  • Based on his seemingly unnaturally large physique and backstory, Max is possibly a former (failed) Supersoldaten candidate and was scarred both mentally and physically by a nondescript experiment. Due to the Nazi doctrine regarding an individual's purity of form, Max's head deformity and lack of intellect would have him killed at birth were they natural.
  • The fact that Max Hass is extremely pacifistic and hates all forms of violence could be a major reason as to why he would have been regarded as a "failure" if he was indeed intended as a Supersoldat. Supersoldaten are mentally formed to become aggressive and ruthless, whereas Max Hass is the exact opposite.
  • Max Hass could be a reference to the iron giant, the huge robot from the same animation film by director Brad Bird. Like Max Hass, the iron giant also has a big dent in the left side of the skull, both of them are mentally retarded and show a childlike behavior. (In a few situations, the robot also expresses a certain intelligence.) Max as well as the giant can not stand the sight of weapons and violence that ironically leads to aggression. In addition, both Max Hass and the robot do not have a single memory of their origin.
