Hoffman's Test
Hoffman IV
Information
Appearances Saw IV
Type of Trap Test
Victims Mark Hoffman (deceased)
Created by John Kramer


A wax-coated tape in Jigsaw's stomach was found during his autopsy in Saw IV. At first, it was thought to be a message that taunted the authorities, but as the movie progressed, it was revealed that John had a second apprentice, aside from Amanda.

The second apprentice was revealed to be Mark Hoffman when the film neared its conclusion, and the tape found in John's stomach was meant for him. It stated that although he may be the "last man standing," he would not walk away untested, and that "the games have just begun," hinting that the tape was a prelude to his testing.

This warning would be realized in Saw VI, as Jill Tuck placed Hoffman in the Reverse Beartrap 2.0, carrying out Jigsaw's last request.

Are you there, detective? If so, you are probably the last man standing. Now, perhaps you will succeed where the others have failed. You feel you now have control, don't you? You think you will walk away untested. I promise that my work will continue. That I have ensured, by hearing this tape, some will assume that this is over, but I am still among you. You think it's over just because I am dead. It's not over. The games have just begun
— John warning Hoffman[src]
