Matsuno Kuusuke (松野 空介), also known as Max (マックス), is a forward for Raimon. He was a candidate for Japan's national team, Inazuma Japan, but didn't get selected.
Not much of his past is known except that he is a high school student.
He is quite blunt and overly confident, his honesty sometimes causes him to say things his teammates don’t want to hear, however he generally means well. He’s a fast learner, enjoying challenges and trying new things, however taking a while to warm up to them.
He has light skin, round eyes and an orange nose. He is often seen wearing a pink and blue cat-design cap; he wears a different cap, white with colorful flowers on cat-design, when sleeping.
Matsuno excels at all sports and was involved in many other sport clubs. He joined and helped the Raimon soccer club mainly in stamina and endurance. He enters Raimon seeing one of Endou Mamoru's posters asking for players to join the club.
He and most members of Raimon are later sent to the hospital due to their injuries from the attack on Kasamino by Gemini Storm. Because of this, he became a member of the Dark Emperors in order to gain more power. They fought with Raimon, where he and Handa show their new hissatsu, Revolution V. They then begin to crush Raimon with their shots, but Endou was able to change them back to the way they originally were and make them realize what they were doing was wrong.
He was one of the 22 selected to join Inazuma Japan, being placed in Inazuma Japan A, which is Endou's team. They had a match so that their coach could see their skills. During the match he made a pass to Hiroto which leads his team to the first goal, however he failed to be chosen to be in the team. In the game, he was one of the players to be chosen as a member of Inazuma Japan, however, he lost. He is later shown at the graduation of the Raimon team. Both the old Raimon team and new Raimon had a match, where is shown that his skills are improved since the last match as he was able to dodge Toramaru.
