"Max Cooper, Surging Shark!"
―alternate roll call[src]

Max Cooper is the Blue Shark Wild Force Ranger, the Blue Ranger of the Wild Force Power Rangers, and commands the Blue Shark Wild Zord. He is best friends with Danny Delgado, the Black Bison Ranger.


Wild Force[]

Max was the third Wild Force Ranger to be recruited, and both he and Alyssa were Rangers for roughly six months prior to Cole getting recruited. Max became a Power Ranger when he aided two girls in escaping from Turbine Org. After Taylor and Alyssa successfully chased off the Org, the Blue Shark Animal Crystal materialized in Max's pocket and he became the Blue Shark Ranger.

Max was originally training to be a bowler when he became a Power Ranger. When he quit, he lost the respect of Don, his mentor. Max later returned to learn his mentor's ultimate technique, the Tornado Spin, for use against Bowling Org. After much convincing, his teacher taught him the move. Tvicon TV STORY-The Tornado Spin

After Master Orgs defeat and surrendering their powers, Max and Danny left Turtle Cove together and went on a very long vacation around the world.

After the vacation, it is presumably that he went back to training with Don to become a bowler.

Max is considered the "kid" of the group, because of his immaturity, childlike quirks, and playfulness. He constantly tries to prove he is not a kid, though he acts immature. He brings a sense of humor to the Rangers.


  • Blue Shark Shadow Ranger was created by the Duke Org Onikage, using Max's shadow. Later, when Cole destroyed Onikage's shadow and the original Onikage is destroyed as a result, the Blue Shark Shadow Ranger disappeared. Tvicon TV STORY-The Master's Herald, Pt. 2

Ranger Key[]

GaoBlue Ranger Key

The Blue Shark Wild Force Ranger Key.

The Blue Shark Wild Force Ranger Key is Max's personal Ranger Key. This key along with the majority of the Core Ranger Keys are seen lining the Command Center's interior walls. This key is mainly used by Noah Carver (Super Megaforce Blue) who uses it to fight as the Blue Shark Wild Force Ranger.


  • Max is the first Ranger with a shark motif.
  • Max is the only Wild Force Ranger to have two instead of three Wildzords, reflecting the fact his Sentai counterpart also possessed only two.
  • This is the first time for a Ranger to use a Zord based on a giraffe.
  • According to Amit Bhaumik, the story editor for Wild Force, Max was named after Max Sterling from Robotech.[1]
