Sydney watching the news

While Max and Steel were fighting against Toxzon, Sydney suddenly calls Max with her phone and asks if she was bothering him in that moment. He deny and she says Max Steel was fighting against a dangerous villain. She then says that Max should be careful when changing the tires of his grandmother's car with a serious and concerned tone, thus foreshadowing that she knews that Max was Max Steel.
Steel, Max and Sydney

Sydney says hi to Steel.

After Morphos was elected as Copper Canyon's president, Sydney started to work for him in an attempt of trying to help Max to stop the villain. While he was discussing with Morphos saying that he knew what he was up to, Sydney appears and takes him away from the villain. Max advises her that Morphos was a maniac and that she should stay away from him. Sydney says that she was just worried with what the villain was planning, but Max doubts.  She then says she was about to tell him and eventually reveals that she knew that Max was Max Steel. Sydney confesses that she knew that for a long time and was waiting to him reveal to her. Afterwards, Max leaves the building after Sydney know that Max could stop the villain with their turbo powers.
Sydney's phone

Sydneny's phone falls in the floor after she mutates into a monster.

Shortly before Morphos' plan is executed, Sydney was in THI's building and called Max to reveal Morphos' plan. Max desperately says to Sydney leave the building, but shortly before her transformation she says that Max and Steel could stop the monster.

Eventually, Max managed to reverse the mutation of Sydney and the rest of Copper Canyon's citizens with his T.U.R.B.O. Energy. After Morphos' defeat, Dread betrays Max and starts eating his energy, but Sydney shoots him with a N-Tek blaster. Steel thanks Sydney and they high five. Suddenly, Steel advises Max that Extroyer was stealing the bank, and Steel confidently says she would be there to help them.


  • Karate: As seen in Driven, Sydney practices Karate and easily knocked down Vin and Dwayne with some hits.
  • Genius Intellect: Academically gifted, Sydney has a great knowledge of science, which was seen when she built a volcano for the science class.


She has brown eyes and blonde hair with a ponytail and bangs. She is a skinny student and almost have the same stature as Max.

Sydney uses two different necklaces, one decorated with white balls and the other being brown with a pendant, a white shirt over a green t-shirt, two braceletes in each arm, blue jeans, and white shoes.

In the halfway of Season 2, Sydney's shirt changes to pink shirt decorated with yellow flowers. The rest of her outfit remains the same.


She is a charming, smart and funny girl, who is very friendly with anyone even if they are friends or not, as she have done with Max when he was introduced to Copper Canyon High School, helping him when she barely knew Max. Sydney cares a lot about others and loves people who do good things, like Max Steel, her hero. Sydney is also very independent and can take care of herself very well as she demonstrated several times, being able to withstand and survive Extroyer and The Elementors' attacks.

Sydney is also very brave and wants to help her hero at every opportunity given, which sometimes cause more problems.
