Sam & Max Character Alignments

I was thinking about character alignments the other day, and of course, my mind happened to wander to how the characters of Sam & Max would fit in. So I had the urge to make this!

These are just some definitive ones I could think of, with the character who first came to mind when thinking about the different alignments, or what that character's alignment would be... or that fit close enough.
I really wanted to put Papierwaite on here, but he actually goes through several alignments throughout Season 3! He starts out Neutral Evil in 302, then becomes Chaotic Neutral in 303. By 304 and 305, when he's not an antagonist anymore, he settles out to Lawful Neutral (mostly thanks to Norrington!).
Where do you think other characters would fit in as far as alignments on this scale?

  • Superball is probably the most Lawful person in the series.
  • But he's Lawful Neutral because he does serve some evil masters sometimes
  • Aw man you're right, crfh, I forgot he worked for Jurgen that one time! Hmm... Plus, we still don't know who his true "superiors" are... yet.
    He's the only one I can think of that'd be closest to Lawful Good though. I guess Flint really is more chaotic, even with him being less so in the games than the comics.
  • The Commission is Lawful good. Xp
  • ...I think the answer for Max is quite plain: Chaotic Lawful :D
  • Oh come on, where is BOSCO! :O

    I think the fact Bosco seems to be almost entirely concerned for just himself (and protecting himself from his many conspiracies), doesn't much care that he overcharges Sam & Max for his ridiculous inventions that they actually need, and then once he has a ton of money goes off to party and count cards in Vegas pretty much makes him True Neutral. XD
  • It really depends on which version of Sam & Max you're going with. Look how violent & irresponsible Sam is in the comics, & think about what Max would do if Sam wasn't around to keep him in line. I see Max as more of a Lawful Evil & Sam as a Chaotic Neutral....They're antiheroes; villains who hunt villains, bad cops who use their badges as an excuse to break laws & get away with it because they still work in the cops' favor.

    What in the world is there about Max that you would consider lawful?
