Toxzon, formerly known as Tytus Octavius Xander, was one of Max Steel's enemies introduced on Season 1. He was a mentally unstable scientis who worked at THI and was developing a cure for all toxins, but instead he becomes a mutant with the ability of controlling them. He counts with the help of his partner Fishy, who, despite being an inanimate object, Toxzon believes that he is alive and has his own personality. Toxzon was voiced by Andrew Francis, and debuted in Cleaning House.
Not much is known about Tytus' early life, but he used to work on N-Tek yet he was fired. He later on started to work on THI, where he was fired again because of his reckless and dangerous experiments.
Toxzon made his first appearance in the episode Cleaning House, appearing as a man named Tytus Octavius Xander. When he was fired of THI by Molly McGrath, he tried to get revenge on everyone, but when Max Steel appeared, Fishy was in danger and he tried to save him when he fall on toxic waste, which caused a mutation on his armor and structure. He later fought against Max but ultimately lost and escaped with Fishy, promising revenge against humanity.
In C.Y.T.R.O Attacks!, he controlled Berto's new and updated C.Y.T.R.O. to steal a very dangerous and potent bomb called Tox-Bomb from N-Tek's Chemi-Vault, as his new plan of contamination. When Max found Toxzon's hideout, Berto managed to control C.Y.T.R.O. again, later launching a new and powerful weapon to Max Steel called Turbo Blaster, that defeated Toxzon, whom later was captured when was trying to escape. At some point, he was later neutralized.
In Supermania, Toxzon escapes from N-Tek's prison, and he absorbs a new toxin, with the plan of contaminating Copper Canyon's water supply by spreading his poison in the sky, creating a Acid Rain. Later, Toxzon managed to create the Acid Rain and new powerful Goopaniods, but Steel eventually found a way to stop the rain, by neutralizing Toxzon, which consequently would neutralize the rain. He later escaped, and possibly went to the sewers.
In The Secret Admirer, Toxzon turned some persons into Toxic Zombies for weeks. As a part of his plan, he sent flowers to Molly McGrath, and when she smelled the flowers, a toxin went inside her and controlled her to go to Toxzon's secret hideout. There, through a machine, he created a female version of himself, named Toxziana, together, they started to attack Copper Canyon, and Max Steel and N-Tek appeared. When Toxzon destroyed some Jump Jets and the fall on the water, he followed them, and when he was deep in the water, Forge warned him that he was in salt water, which destroyed Toxzon's toxin, making him get weak and sink in the water. Fishy scolded him for not knowing that, but the glass broke and Fishy start to float in the water, while Toxzon was sinking deep in the ocean.
In Gone Fishin', Toxon starts to contaminate the oceans, mutating the fishies into toxic beings like him. When Max Steel, alongside with N-Tek, was investigating the ocean, a giant piranha cam in their direction, and Toxzon saves him, later saying that he wouldn't stop until he gets Fishy back. In N-Tek, Max Steel and Berto tried really hard to create a new copy of Fishy that would looks like the real one, and when they reached the result and showed to Toxzon, he eventually recognized that wasn't Fishy and destroyed it. He started to attack the N-Tek Agents with his new and enhanced Goopaniods, but he stopped when Ferrus gave him the real Fishy, who convinced Toxzon to absorb all the toxins from the ocean, making him more powerful than ever. Toxzon attacked Max Steel and sunk him in the ocean, and went to Copper Canyon, but Max came back with a glass tank, which later locked Toxzon there. After all, Toxzon was happy with Fishy's companion.
In Pick Your Poison, N-Tek, for the first time, was in disadvantage against Ultimate Elementor's combined attacks, and decided to get Toxzon's help. Though that firstly Toxzon wasn't expecting to help N-Tek, Steel eventually managed to convince him. He wanted to meet Ultimate Elementor personally, and when Max Steel found him, he got a sample of him, which later made Toxzon create a successful sample that would stop Ultimate Elementor. In a fight against Ultimate Elementor, Max Steel managed to launch the sample on Elementor's head, temporarily paralyzing him, while Toxzon revealed that the serum was actually a hypnosis serum, which successfully hypnotized Ultimate Elementor, that freed Toxzon from the giant container. He absorbed the toxin residing on Ultimate Elementor, and got a new mode, however, when he was trying to defeat Max Steel, he activated a new Turbo Mode that eventually managed to defeat Toxzon and Elementor, that turned to its normal form. Since Elementor was normal, he started to attack Toxzon and followed him, for everything that he done for them.
On Season 2, Toxzon appears less times than the previous season, appearing again in the episode Toxic Relationship. When he was stealing information from a laboratory, a Makino Ship came, and launched an Ultralink that would intentionally link with Toxzon, but it eventually linked with Fishy, when Toxzon tried to escape, failing miserably. Upon the transformation of his beloved Fishy, now Plaztek, Toxzon tried everything to get him back, and ended up helping Plaztek in destroying the world with the intention of deceive him. When Max and N-Tek forces came, they started a big showdown, where Toxzon betrayed the alliance with Plaztek and tried to get Fishy back from what it costs, but he got unconscious after being hit by Plaztek, who was later perforated by Max Steel's Turbo Drills. Toxzon later woke up, seeing Plaztek fall down in the ocean, and jumped in the water in his last attempt of helping and freeing Fishy, but Toxzon is forced to go, since he could die if he stayed with Fishy. He later promised revenge against Max Steel.
In Digital Meltdown, Toxzon tried to avenge Fishy with his voice recognizer, since he would be able to identify Max Steel's voice in the popular video game of Max Steel. When he finally identified their voices, he later made an Ultralink link with the device that emulated the video game, creating Avatak, who was captured by him and forced to play in the video game. With Elementor's hypnosis serum, Toxzon forced the players, which were on a competition, to play the game and defeat Max and Steel, everything in a rush, since there was a countdown of 15 minutes. When Steel was defeated in the game, Max managed to defeat Avatak by using a bug in the game, also killing him in the real life. Toxzon later angrily threw the video game out of the sewers.
Later, with Fishy's loss, Toxzon started to slowly decay, as seen in A Germ of an Idea. When Jason Naught infected the Daedelus Plataform with a electronic virus of Toxzon, Max & Steel are forced to invade Toxzon's secret hideout. There, they see what happened with him, and take him to N-Tek, since he was the only which knew how to disable the virus. However, Toxzon was incapacitated of answering anything, and Max and Steel were forced to enter on his body, where they injected a substance that woke up Toxzon. He later helped N-Tek, and disabled the virus of Fishy, later being arrested to the prison of N-Tek.
Later, on The Final Countdown Part Two, he is briefly seen in the prison alongside with the other villains. However, when the Alphalink start the process of absorption on Earth, the bars of the prison are disabled, and he escapes of there alongside with the other villains. Since then, his whereabouts were unknown.
Toxzon reappears with a blimp that he built, trying to infect Copper Canyon with dangerous pollutants, until Max and Steel comes. Eventually, the blimp is taken down by Max Steel, but Morphos manages to stop the blimp, later gaining a fame between Copper Canyon citizens, who referred him as a hero. Morphos manages to absorb Toxzon's powers and he is the first to be arrested to the prison.
Eventually, after Copper Canyon was entirely mutated into mutants similar to Morphos, Toxzon, alongside with other villains, were freed from the prison and later team-up with Max Steel in order to stop Morphos once for all. Toxzon fought against some of Morphos' henchmen and managed to defeat some of them. When Toxzon tried to stop Morphos, he used his own powers against Toxzon, declaring that he knew his intentions of wiping out the humanity.
After Morphos was defeated with Max's Turbo Exo Strength Mode, Toxzon escapes with other villains and his whereabouts were unknown.
Two years since the events of Maximum Morphos, Toxzon is recruited by Professor Mortum to find the powerful Connect-Tek. At first, Toxzon was curious about how Mortum managed to find N-Tek's secret bases and was skeptical about Mortum's plans, but he later on decides to work with him.
When the Elementors were fighting over each other because of the Connect-Tek, Toxzon suddenly appeared and released a toxic gas that knocked them down and he stole the Connect-Tek and N-Tek's technology and ultimately escaped shortly after Max woke up.
Upon seeing Tempestra and La Fiera unconscious, Max decided that it would be best to fight against Toxzon and his minions on his own. After fighting against few Goopanoids, Max comes across Toxzon, who is quickly defeated by him.
Later on, Toxzon teams-up with the Elementors and Extroyer and he fights against Max Steel, who was using his brand new Turbo Prime Mode. Toxzon launches various corrosive Goopanoids on Max, yet he manages to dodge most of them. Eventually, Max launches a T.U.R.B.O. Energy wave on Toxzon's direction, which he tries to avoid, but it ultimately hits him and damages his armor, thus defeating him.
Toxzon only made a cameo appearance. His helmet and hoses were seen being stored in a room on Team Turbo's base.

Originally Tytus was a skinny man with a good look. He had short brown hair, brown eyes and a red device was connected to his left eye. He used a large, black coat with red lines in the shoulders, black pants and black shoes. He also used a dark grey shirt over his coat.
He had a close-fitting black armor with the same colors as his signature look (black, dark grey, and light red). After Tytus suffered the mutation, the armor was permanently infused with him, increasing his size and mass. His upper torso is notably bigger than the rest of his body. His armor became light green and hoses are connected to it. A line of toxins is made on his head, forming a mohawk and barrels on his back that contains his toxins are seen. He could also create three large claws made out of his current toxin in each forearm.
Toxzon's hoses can be in different colors depending on which toxin he uses.
- Light Blue: Neutralized.
- Green: Standard Main Mode.
- Lavender: Hypnosis Serem.
- Purple: Toxic Bacteria.
- Orange: Acid/Orange Toxin.
- Lime Green/Yellow Green: Radioactive.
- Black: Oil.
Additionally, according to Max and Steel, Toxzon smells bad.
- "I gave them my genius, and this is how they repay me!? Inconceivable!"
Before his mutation, Tytus was a mad genius already described by his colleagues as "increasingly unstable" and obsessed over talking with his plastic goldfish named Fishy, whom he used to carry around. He was obsessed over cleaning and would constantly talk with himself. He conduced dangerous and reckless experiments on THI, which almost got an intern killed, though he said that "it was just an intern", showing no remorse or regards towards her life. He had egomaniac tendencies, as he thought that he was a misunderstood genius, thinking that his works were never dangerous nor reckless. Upon being fired from THI, Tytus got extremely angry and talks with Fishy, revealing that he wanted to clean the world from the filth and would start with THI, proceeding to turn their workers into toxic zombies. When confronted by Max Steel, the hero mentions that he had poisoned everyone on the building, in which he responds to "excellent", with a smile on his face. After accidentally dropping Fishy on a toxic waste, he gets extremely angry, anxious and desperate to save his plastic friend, which ends up causing his mutation as Toxzon.
Becoming a monster and renaming himself as "Toxzon", he gets extremely angry at Max and Steel for hurting Fishy and goes downright insane. Initially he doesn't accepts his mutation, thinking that he was "dirty, filthy, toxic" and blamed it on Max Steel, later on attempting to make him have the same fate that he had. He is obssessed over extinguishing humanity by any means possible, with most of them being related to pollution, yet by the second season he gets focused on having revenge against Max Steel and the Ultralinks. He considers himself superior to others due to his genius-level intellect as seen in Pick Your Poison, in which he constantly says that Berto was a good scientist, but not good as him. In the same episode, he shows a manipulative and tactician side, as he manipulates N-Tek into providing things that he wanted in exchange of him helping to neutralize Ultimate Elementor, yet in reality he planned to control him to take the organization down. He also held a grudge against Molly McGrath, who fired him from THI, and at some point he converts her into a mutant like him. In the process, he explains how she ruined his life in a unstable and trembling voice.
He often acts in a childish way due to his obsession with Fishy, as he constantly asked for his opinion about his plans or when he would make a deal with another character. He deeply cared about his plastic goldfish and would attempt to save him if he was put in danger. In Gone Fishin', for example, Toxzon threatened to contaminate the entire ocean if N-Tek didn't gave Fishy back to him, who had been taken by N-Tek few episodes before after he was defeated and sank on the ocean. During the events of Toxic Relationship, Toxzon loses Fishy thanks to the Ultralinks, and as a result he develops a deep hatred for them and blames them (and Max Steel as well) for losing his goldfish. Afterwards, his mental health rapidly decays as seen in A Germ of an Idea, where he is shown to have gone completely numb and would constantly mutter Fishy's name. However, he is later on brought back to his senses by Max and Steel and goes back to his villainous schemes.
