– Toecutter

"Toecutter" was a leader of his own merciless motorcycle gang that terrorised the outback. He was portrayed by Hugh Keays-Byrne and appears as the main antagonist in Mad Max.


Requires expansion

Not much is known about Toecutter's past, however it can be assumed that he was close to the Nightrider, who was potentially serving as his second in command. Even after the Nightrider's incarceration and death, Toecutter remains faithful to him and his legacy of banditry and anarchy. He is also close to Johnny the Boy, he constantly forces Johnny over the edge and makes him kill people, on occasion including Jim Goose, Toecutter makes Johnny throw a match in a gasoline doused car with Goose in it.

Out of vengeance, Toecutter tracked down Max's wife, Jessie and their son, Sprog, and ran them both down in cold blood. When Max found out, he flew into a rage and begin violently eliminating Toecutter's gang one by one. Toecutter himself tried to escape only to be crushed under the wheels of an oncoming semi auto.


Toecutter is a ruthless leader, capable of both savagery and strategy. While not as calculating as Bubba Zanetti, it is clear that Toecutter can employ tact while dealing with situations. He became angry at Johnny the Boy's lack of finesse while demonstrating his eagerness to attack "the bronze", choosing instead to carry out his revenge in a more subtle and psychological manner. Toecutter also appears to have a "conscience", or at least the semblance of one, while dealing with other people. This is evident when he dismisses the train manager, signalling his cohorts to not harm him.
