The Synthroid is a sentient alien robot that attacked Max and Verdona in Moonstruck. It was trying to capture Verdona so she could be used as a power source for its planet. As a mechanical being, it has no care or remorse for beings who are alive and justifies the act by saying it's vital to the continued survival of its race. As it was telling Max, it was going to drain Verdona's life and kill her just like the organic ones who built them. Max destroys the Synthroid by shooting a part of the ship that caused a massive explosion as soon as he and Verdona could escape.
At first in the series, it takes the appearance of a dark mysterious man who wears a trench coat and hat covering the eyes. After a fight with Max, its true form was revealed to be a tall black humanoid robot after its ID Mask was removed.
