Max Payne is a fugitive DEA agent and former NYPD detective whose wife was murdered.
In his office, Payne is hired by Mario and Luigi to kill Tommy Vercetti (his main enemy) and his gang. He constantly speaks with a inner monologue but actually says it instead of it being in his head. ("The Case Of The Stolen Junk")
The three then head to Vercetti's hideout, with only Max going in. He infiltrates the building, killing the guard at the front door but encountering another. However, he is able to kill this one, as well as all the others that cross his path. Vercetti then shows up and attempts to forge an alliance with Max, but Payne shoots him several times instead. He is not dead yet, and Vercetti insults him, resulting in Payne shooting him twice more. ("A Huge Payne")
Later, as Wario and Luigi are driving home with their Texas hold 'em winnings, they are pulled over by Max Payne, who informs them that the poker tournament was illegal. He then confiscates the money in exchange for allowing the two to go free. ("You Can't Read My Poker Face!")
Payne lacks any inner monologue, making him speak as if he is telling a story, which tends to creep people out. He also will do anything for the greater good, such as killing Vercetti and his guards.
