It's a class job. One mistake, and it'll blow the crap out of this place! Literally.

– Blackfinger


Blackfinger was a mechanic who worked in Bartertown. He appeared in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.


Blackfinger is the chief vehicle engineer of Bartertown . He first appeared trying to disarm the self-destruction mechanism on Max's vehicle. He was advised not to by Max himself who later was odered to disarm the booby-trap by Master Blaster. He later makes an appearance in the Underworld chasing Max and also participates in the chase of the train-truck. He is ordered by Auntie Entity to hold onto the train-truck and the train car until Auntie retrieved Master for a brief moment. His last appearance is at the very end of the chase where he points a gun at Max along with other Imperial Guards of Auntie Entity.


Blackfinger wears a studded helmet with a head strap and occassionally a pair of goggles with makeshift padding. On his back is a skateboard that he uses to get under the vehicles. On his right arm is a peculiar forearm aparatus connected to his fingers. His weapon of choice is a short barreled pump action shotgun.


The term "blackfinger" makes an appearance in Mad Max: Fury Road albeit slightly modified. Nux is called a 'blackthumb' aka a mechanic. The term itself stems from the fact mechanics have their hands and fingers covered in mechanical grease all the time.

In the Mad Max video game, Chumbucket is referred to as a "blackfinger" in reference to his skills as a former mechanic for the Scrotus Horde.
