Bobby Max the Beast os the 152nd episode of the original Prince of Tennis. It originally aired on the 22nd September 2004.


After Doubles 1 and Doubles 2, everyone takes a lunch break, including the audience. During this time Kevin finds Ryoma practicing and approaches him telling him to play a match. Ryoma agrees but only in the official matches. Then he goes back to practicing.

Back in the tournament, a very powerful tennis player named Bobby Max from the U.S. team is up against Sengoku in Singles 3. Bobby offends Sengoku several times during the match and takes the first 3 games. Once Sengoku scores a point, Bobby protests against it and starts yelling at the referee. Afterwards he goes back to his position.
