"Who's this reigning champion, you ask? It's none other than ARMS League Commissioner Max Brass! With his ARM-deflecting aura and awe-inducing bulk, it's no wonder he's the champ! As he tours the region, he plans to cultivate and mentor up-and-coming ARMS talent… And he'll probably give 'em a nice butt kicking while he's at it!"

Max Brass is a playable fighter in ARMS. He is an ARMS veteran and the greatest champion ever to compete in the Grand Prix.[1] Max Brass is also the head of the ARMS League (hence his nickname, 'The Commish') and the organizer for the Grand Prix.


Max Brass has a large, muscular build. His ARMS are made of championship belts that he has won over the years, and he also boasts a championship belt around his waist. He wears a tight blue and gold bodysuit, a golden mask, armor with brass fist ornaments, and red and gold boots.


"Head of the ARMS League, the organizing body of the ARMS Grand Prix! You'd never guess his age once he charges and pumps up that beefy body to maximum buffness. As reigning champ, he awaits new challengers in the championship round of the Grand Prix!"
Official description


Upon fully charging his punches or successfully performing a throw, Max Brass can temporarily increase the size of his upper body, during which his punches will be permanently charged and he will resist being knocked down when punched as if he were a heavyweight. Unlike other heavyweight characters, Max Brass only needs to be moving in order to gain the damage reduction effect normally granted to heavies while they are dashing, jumping, or attacking. This effect lasts five seconds or until Max Brass is knocked down. Below 25% health, Max Brass will always be "pumped up."

He also shares Spring Man's ability to deflect incoming punches and his ability to maintain a constant charge while below 25% health.
