There is only one other credited actor besides Mel Gibson who appeared in both Mad Max and Mad Max 2. Max Fairchild played "Benno Swaisey" in the first film, then played the "Broken Victim" in the second film. He is bigger of the two individuals tied to the front of the vehicle driven by Humongous.

In the first Mad Max film, the budget was so tight that only Mel Gibson wore a real leather jacket! The rest of the "leather" costumes were made of vinyl.... since it's cheaper.

The car for the films "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior" in which the protagonist/actor Mel Gibson uses, had what's called a blower in front and on top of the car's hood. Likewise, during some scenes in both films, Mel "Mad Max" Gibson uses an on/off switch, to activate the blower and to elude his enemies. The blower was a fake, it is supposed to be continously running when the car is on; it cannot be off when the engine is running. Thus, it being off while the car is in idle will cause great damage to the motor.

The Humungus was German, and his .44 revolver was used by a German ancestor, probably a Nazi.

The Toadie appears and sounds as if he's an American. BTW he is The Humungus' advisor.

Mel Gibson's outfit in the movie was worn for a reason: in the first "Mad Max" film, his right arm was run over by a biker while trying to reach his shotgun and he was shot in the leg too.
