Adam beat Zep to death with a toilet tank cover while Gordon crawled away to get help. The real Jigsaw showed himself and tells Adam that the chain's key is in the bathtub, which was drained when Adam accidentally kicked the plug out. Adam then grabs Zep's pistol and tries to shoot Jigsaw but is electrocuted by his hidden remote control before he can get a shot off.

In Saw III, after Matthews was kidnapped and presumed dead following the events of II, Kerry became wracked with guilt for his loss. She and Detective Hoffman were assigned a case where Kerry pointed out that a trap did not follow Jigsaw's modus operandi, because the trap did not give the victim a chance to escape, and thus did not believe Jigsaw was responsible for it.

Sing rushed to help the victim while Tapp attempted to arrest Jigsaw but Jigsaw retaliated by slicing open Tapp's throat. As they pursued Jigsaw, Sing was killed in a booby-trap for which Tapp blamed himself. His son Michael, a reporter, abused their strained relationship during this time to steal information on the Jigsaw case and write an expose that tarnished Tapp's reputation leading to him being dismissed from the force.

Gordon was placed in a trap alongside Adam Stanheight and tasked with killing him before the time limit ran out or his wife and daughter would be executed. He failed to do this, but instead severed his own foot to free himself from his shackles, attempting to crawl to freedom and promising to bring help back for Adam. After crawling from the bathroom, he used a hot steam pipe to cauterize his wound and prevent fatal blood loss. Jigsaw found him unconscious shortly after and began helping him recover from his injury, later fitting him with a prosthetic foot.

Jigsaw managed to recruit Gordon's aid afterwards, employing his talents in many of his traps such as sewing the key behind Michael's eye, suggesting Lynn Denlon as a test subject (Saw III), stitching Trevor's eyes shut (Saw IV) and writing a cryptic note that Hoffman found on his desk (Saw V). Following Jigsaw's death, Gordon was left a package to be delivered by his wife Jill, that contained instructions to watch over Jill on his behalf. After Hoffman kills Jill and attempts to flee, he is ambushed by three people in Pig masks, their leader revealed as Gordon.

    Flammable jelly

Mark,[4] a software analyst,[4] was one of Jigsaw's earliest victims, targeted because he feigned illness and injury to excuse himself from his responsibilities when he was in fact perfectly healthy. Mark was stripped naked and informed that he had a slow-acting poison in his body, and the antidote was locked away in a safe in the room. Mark had to overcome the broken-glass covered floor and use a candle to read the safe combination written on the wall, wary of the fact his flesh was smeared with napalm. Mark eventually fumbled with the candle and the substance ignited, burning him alive; his charred corpse was found later by police. According to the list in Saw V, Mark was the second victim of Jigsaw's traps. A case file from Detective Tapp reveals that he was using his "illness" for medical insurance fraud, and that he used Umbrella Insurance, the same group of people tested in Saw VI.

Paul LeahyEdit

  • Portrayed by Mike Butters
  • Appeared in: Saw: Rebirth, Saw, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI
  • Status: Deceased

Paul was one of Jigsaw's earliest victims, chosen because he attempted suicide by cutting his wrists despite having a 'good' life with a wife and kids. Paul was placed in a large cage lined with a maze of razor wire and given 2 hours to crawl his way to freedom, the irony of this being that if Paul wanted to live he would have to cut himself but if he really wanted to die, all he had to do was wait. Paul died of injuries from the razor wire before reaching the exit. Paul was later seen in Saw IV leaving Jill's drug clinic. In Saw V, Paul is shown being kidnapped by Jigsaw and Hoffman for his test in Saw.

Steven SingEdit

  • Portrayed by Ken Leung
  • Appeared in: Saw, Saw III, Saw V
  • Status: Deceased
    Steven Sing

Steven Sing was a 34 years old detective who was called to the crime scene investigation of one of Jigsaw's victims. He and his partner, David Tapp, were assigned to the case. Tapp found a clue in one of the tapes left over from the crime scene, leading Sing and Tapp right to Jigsaw's hideout. There, they found a man in a trap with drills aimed at his neck. Jigsaw arrived and activated the device when the officers exposed themselves, forcing the detectives to choose between arresting him or saving Jeff. Sing shot the drills and deactivated them before pursuing Jigsaw through the warehouse after Jigsaw had slashed Tapp's throat with a hidden wrist-blade. While in pursuit, Sing accidentally activated a tripwire which triggered four shotguns hidden above to fire and kill him. Sing's death triggered Tapp's obsession with Jigsaw. In Saw V, Sing was given a police memorial.

It is shown in the video game that Sing had a wife named Melissa and a son named Franklin. Melissa encounters Tapp during the game and blames him for the death of her husband. In one of Tapp's case files found in Saw II: Flesh & Blood, Detective Tapp establishes a great deal of respect and admiration for his partner's work ethic, though he also notes that "he tends to drink more than most. Doesn't seem to affect his judgement though."

Zep HindleEdit

  • Portrayed by Michael Emerson (film) and Jeff Shuter (animated comic).
  • Appeared in: Saw: Rebirth, Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw 3D
  • Status: Deceased

    Zep reaching the Bathroom

Zepp was an orderly who worked in the hospital where John Kramer, the Jigsaw Killer, was treated for his cancer. He formed a sort of bond with John while he was being treated, but was considered to have "issues of his own" by him. John seemed to see a lot of his own actions in Zep's goals, reminding him of himself before he was diagnosed with cancer.[5] Zep would later be forced to watch Adam Stanheight and Dr. Gordon play out their game that took place in a bathroom. If Lawrence failed to kill Adam by 6:00, then Zep would be forced to kill Lawrence's wife and child, whom he had been holding hostage, in order to save himself from the slow-acting nerve agent in his bloodstream. He would then have to kill Lawrence himself and retrieve an antidote from Jigsaw. Lawrence failed, but his wife and daughter managed to escape from Zep's grip before he could kill them, as Zep was attacked by David Tapp, a former detective who was watching the Gordons' home from across the street. Zep was forced to flee down to the sewers to kill Lawrence, but Tapp followed him; the two fought, and Zep shot Tapp in the chest and left him to die. In the bathroom, where Lawrence had already shot Adam, Zep prepared to kill Lawrence. Before he could do so, though, Adam knocked him down and beat him to death with a toilet tank lid.

Throughout the film, Zep is presented as a red herring, with the audience being encouraged to believe that he was Jigsaw, rather than a victim of one of Jigsaw's games. The truth is revealed only after Adam searches the body, looking for a key to free himself, and finds a microcassette recorder that contains Jigsaw's instructions to Zep. On the commentary for Saw, Leigh Whannell and James Wan stated that Zep enjoyed the sense of power he was given over others which he did not have before. Zep's decomposed corpse is later shown still in the bathroom in Saw II, Saw III and Saw 3D.

When she reached into a hanging glass box to retrieve an antidote syringe, her arms became caught in folding razor blades and she began bleeding heavily while trying to pull free. Xavier found her but after reading the number on the back of her neck, he left her to bleed to death. In Saw IV she is shown prior to John Kramer becoming Jigsaw, offering him 'company' in her role as a prostitute.He then warns her that it is dangerous for her to be alone on the streets at night and tells her its best to go home. It was also rumoured that brenda in saw IV was her possible female pimp.

And in saw V she is shown passed out in a corner in the first room of the nerve gas house.

It was revealed in the commentary for the second film that there was a key already in the lock at the back of the trap Addison died in, and all she had to do in order to live was to turn it and grab the antidote. It was also revealed her trap was intended for Gus, who died earlier on, which is why she is shown ripping up his envelope and tossing his tape aside. Addison's trap was supposed to be a "waffle iron," which she would have to push her face into. According to the Saw II website, Addison was written to be 29 years old.[6]

Daniel MatthewsEdit

  • Portrayed by Erik Knudsen
  • Appeared in: Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, 'Saw V, Saw 3D
  • Status: Alive
    Saw ii daniel matthews

Daniel appeared in Saw II, he is the son of Eric Matthews. After a falling out with his father, Daniel went missing but was revealed to have been captured and placed in another of Jigsaw's games alongside several convicts, all arrested by Daniel's father. As the game progressed, Daniel's lineage was discovered and he was abandoned by many of the other victims. As time ran low, Daniel and Amanda worked together to get away from Xavier, an enraged victim who was hunting them. Xavier found them but Daniel managed to slice open his neck with a saw, killing him and saving Amanda and himself. After these events it is revealed that Amanda, Jigsaw's new apprentice, had taken the unconscious Daniel to Jigsaw's lair and they had locked him in a safe as an incentive for Eric Matthews in his own test. Daniel also appears briefly in Saw V, in a flashback revealing that Detective Hoffman had assisted Jigsaw in preparing the house in Saw II. In Saw 3D, a flashback shows him and Amanda in the bathroom from the ending of Saw II. Daniel he is written be 17 years old.

Daniel RiggEdit

  • Portrayed by Lyriq Bent
  • Appeared in: Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V
  • Status: Deceased
    Daniel Rigg

Daniel Rigg was a S.W.A.T. officer who first appeared in Saw II, assisting detectives Eric Matthews and Allison Kerry in arresting Jigsaw, but ultimately failed to capture the felon after Eric helped Jigsaw escape. He held the rank of Sergeant for this film, but was promoted to Lieutenant and put in command of the S.W.A.T. team before the events of Saw III. Appearing only briefly in Saw III, Rigg was eventually put into a series of tests as the protagonist in Saw IV, in which he had to rethink many of the Jigsaw Killer's ideals. He suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach in his final test; and it was revealed that he died of blood loss in Saw V and was also given a memorial, along with Detectives Eric Matthews, Allison Kerry, David Tapp, and Steven Sing.

Lyriq Bent has remarked that: "I didn't know what to expect of his character in the fourth movie. Lieutenant Rigg has really come into himself. In Saw II, he was really the strong, silent type that really didn't know what was going on around him. You had a sense that there was something going on with him internally, and I think that sparked a lot of curiosity in the audience. They wanted to know, 'Who is this guy, and what's he all about?' In Saw IV, you get to find out who he is, and what he's all about, and how he feels about the situation that he's in, and how he feels about the type of work that he's in and people and all that. And I think he's a character that people are gonna like, because they can relate to him on so many different levels. He's a real person. In Saw IV, you get to go on a journey with him, and it's pretty much an emotional journey. At the end, I only hope that the audience will be as exhausted and worn out as he is, because he becomes this broken man." At the memorial/press conference in Saw V, photographs of the five dead officers are on display, labeled with their names; Rigg's picture shows his first name as Daniel.

Eric MatthewsEdit

Before he could be arrested, Jigsaw revealed he had possession of Eric's son and that he would have to play in Jigsaw's game to see him again. It was revealed that Eric was chosen because he had planted evidence to secure convictions against people for crimes they had not committed. Eric, concerned about his son, refused to follow Jigsaw's rules and in doing so he ended up brutalizing the weakened cancer patient and later trapped and shackled in the same bathroom in which Adam had died. However, he shattered his own foot to allow him to squeeze free of the shackle and pursue Amanda, his captor and one of the victims of his evidence-planting. He brutally beat Amanda before she gained the upper-hand and left him for dead. Jigsaw found Matthews, had his foot repaired and held him captive until he could be used in a trap designed for Daniel Rigg.

Two antidote syringes had been placed inside a cold furnace; he could use one for himself and give the other away. When he crawled in and tried to retrieve the syringes, he triggered a mechanism that sealed and ignited the furnace, burning him to death. A clue given on Obi's tape indicated that he could save himself by turning a valve within the furnace, highlighted by an image of the Devil.

Once Jeff entered, water began spraying on Danica, and she was able to convince Jeff to help her. He managed to get the key, tearing part of his cheek off in the process when it froze onto the pipes.

He was placed at the bottom of a large vat, with a chain across his throat, and rotted pig carcasses were dropped into a nearby set of saws so that the liquefied material would pour down on him. The key to free him was in an incinerator filled with Dylan's belongings; Jeff eventually burned the items, found the key, and saved Halden from drowning just in time.

Jeff's final test was a confrontation with Jigsaw himself to prove he had learned how to forgive. Jeff claimed to forgive Jigsaw before cutting open his throat.

Jeff's surname was "Denlon" in the film, but was "Reinhart" on the back of the Saw 3 DVD cover.

When asked whether he liked his character even though he hesitated in saving people, Angus Macfadyen said, "Yeah, well, I think it's kind of set up in the film that even though you think he could save them, even when he tries to, it's set-up so it all seems a little too late. That was something we were discussing was how long do you wait and pause? Because if you've done that in one room, you know you can't do that in the next because otherwise it's going to be too late for that person. So we were having lots of debates. And also because each scene, you can't play them all the same. You've got to build in each one. So did I like him? I don't think he liked himself very much."[12]

Lynn was placed in a collar rigged with shotgun shells, which would detonate if she moved too far from Jigsaw or if his heart monitor flatlined. She performed extensive brain surgery and care to ensure he stayed alive until her husband Jeff completed his three tests.

When asked about why she believed her character was being tested, Bahar Soomekh said, "I think this is what's so interesting and that's what I would ask is in Jigsaw's mind he's justified in everything that he does, right? These are people, whether they are drug dealers or they've done something wrong. But that's how psychotic and wrong he actually is. Because he justifies it. What did Lynn do? That's what's so disturbing because he's not justified at all in doing what he does. In his mind, he thinks he's helping these people. How does he help Lynn? He doesn't help Lynn at all. But I think, in his mind, because my character's depressed ... so she's been dead inside. She's totally dead inside and this is Jigsaw's way of waking her up and saying, 'What the hell are you doing?' And she does. You see the metamorphosis in her."[13]

  • Status: Deceased
    Lindsey Perez

Introduced in Saw IV, Lindsey Perez was an FBI agent assigned to the Jigsaw case along with her partner, Peter Strahm. With information provided by Allison Kerry before her murder stating that two officers might be in danger, she and Strahm performed a thorough investigation concerning the disappearances of Daniel Rigg and Mark Hoffman. As they followed the trail of Rigg's tests, it became apparent at one of the locations they came across that they themselves were being targeted by Jigsaw, as Kerry had warned. At the last building that Rigg had been at, Perez barely escaped death when Strahm pulled her out of the firing path of a harpoon (which in turn hit a crime scene photographer). Minutes later, they entered a room where they were confronted with a Billy doll and a tape meant for her. As she leaned forward to hear what the voice was saying, the Billy doll's face exploded, severely injuring her face and neck with shrapnel. In Saw V, it is implied that she died from her injuries; her last words to Strahm were "Detective Hoffman," leading to Strahm's initial suspicion regarding Hoffman.

She was revealed to be alive in Saw VI, though prominently scarred, and back on the Jigsaw investigation. Dismissive of Strahm being Jigsaw's accomplice, she and Dan Erickson investigated abnormalities in evidence found that implicated Strahm and a distorted tape made by Hoffman in creating his own trap. As soon as the tape was unscrambled, Hoffman quickly attacked, slashing Erickson's throat, using a technician as a human shield against Perez's gunshots, and fatally stabbing Perez. When Hoffman demanded who else was aware of his secret, she simply told him "everyone" before dying. Her body, and everything else in the audio lab, was set on fire to destroy evidence.

Rex and Morgan were later put into a Jigsaw test as part of Rigg's game. The pair were locked back to back in a harness, their bodies impaled with several long spikes. A tape left for Morgan informed her that she could free herself by removing the spikes but would kill Rex in the act; the spikes pierced major blood vessels on Rex's body. When Rigg found the pair, Rex was dead and Morgan was unconscious, having removed all but one spike. He gave her the key to the harness and told her she would have to save herself, then set off a fire alarm to alert the authorities to her presence. When found by Strahm and Perez, Morgan said that Rigg had saved her. The directors cut of the film shows Rigg removing the final spike himself.

The chains were gradually reeled in, making it harder for William to keep holding them both; he finally chose to save Addy, while the wire noose cut Allen's throat and strangled him to death when his ledge retracted.

In Saw 3D, Addy was part of Bobby Dagen's self-help group meeting.

Tara and Brent AbbottEdit

Brent and Tara were the teenage son and widow of a man named Harold Abbott whose health insurance policy was revoked by William Easton on a technicality, contributing to his death. They were captured and placed in one of two cages at the end of William's series of tests, with Pamela Jenkins in the other. Once William reached the end, Tara and Brent were given the choice of sparing his life or ending it. Despite expressing anger for her husband's death, Tara listened to the pleas for mercy from both William and Pamela and could not bring herself to kill William. However, Brent could not forgive him and triggered the device himself, causing a group of needles to swing down into William's back and inject him with hydrofluoric acid. Pamela, Tara, and Brent watched in horror as he dissolved from the inside out.

Tara appeared in Saw 3D at Bobby Dagen's self-help group meeting. Devon Bostick was offered to return as Brent, but turned it down due to scheduling conflicts with Hidden 3D.[17]

Carousel victimsEdit

Aaron, Dave, Emily, Gena, Josh, and Shelby (collectively referred to as "The Dog Pit" by their boss, William Easton) were six of William's junior associates, who did the investigative work as a teamed unit to weed out health insurance applications and claims that could be denied. They were placed into the last of William's four tests, chained to a carousel and facing a shotgun mounted on a mechanical winch. Just as their work resulted in 2/3 of all applications being denied or prematurely terminated, William could choose only 1/3 of the group of six--two of them to be saved by pushing buttons that would drive spikes into his hand, while the other four would die. If he did nothing, all six would be killed. Each argued and accused one another of trying to win William's favor as he struggled with his decisions. Ultimately he chose to save Emily, a mother of two, and Shelby, whose parents were sick and needed her to take care of them. Aaron, Gena, Dave, and Josh were left to die in that order. The carousel stopped on Aaron first, making him the first to die; before it did so, he stated "I am the one who should live", in accordance with the insurance company's policy. Gena died second and was the third person the carousel stopped on; she insisted that she was pregnant while everyone opposed her and called her a liar. Dave died third as the fourth round of the carousel stopped on him; he tried to bribe William for his life. Josh became outraged and angry at William for choosing Shelby instead of him, criticizing him and shouting for William to look him in the eye as he became the last to die on the carousel.

In Saw 3D Emily was part of Bobby Dagen's survivor group meeting.


Debbie was the attorney for Umbrella Health and William Easton. She was kidnapped and placed in William's third test, with a device strapped to her chest which would launch a spear through her head unless she reached the end of a steel-cage maze in 90 seconds. William had to help her, diverting jets of scalding steam away from her path and onto himself, severely burning him. After reaching the end of the maze, she discovered that to escape the device she would need a key sewn into William's flesh. She attacked him with a nearby circular saw but was unable to retrieve the key before her time ran out; the device activated and killed her.

Simone is a predatory lending banker, who took part in a test along with her co-worker Eddie in Saw VI. They were placed in adjoining cells. Since they had figuratively extracted their "pound of flesh" from loan recipients who they knew could never pay them back, they would literally have to do the same in order to survive. She wore a head harness with screws poised at the temples, and had a knife and a meat cleaver on hand. A balance scale was placed between her and Eddie's cell; whichever captive cut off the most weight in body parts and threw them onto the scale in sixty seconds would live, while the other would be killed by the screws boring into his/her skull. Eddie, being overweight, sliced several chunks of flesh from his stomach, but Simone who is very slender, realized she had no other choice but to sever her arm, which quickly tipped the scale in her favor. Simone survived and was later questioned by Hoffman and the FBI in her hospital room. She violently retaliates toward Hoffman when he asks her if she learned from her experience, asking "What the fuck am I supposed to learn from THIS?!" while displaying her bandaged arm stump.

Simone appears in Saw 3D at Bobby Dagen's survivor group meeting. She berates Sydney, saying that it shouldn't have taken a trap to leave her boyfriend, and states that her test had taught her nothing and the damage from her survival has only amplified her bitterness towards life, especially since her appearance in the previous film.

William EastonEdit

William Easton was an insurance executive at Umbrella Health who was a target of Jigsaw's tests. His company was responsible for John Kramer's medical coverage which denied him funding for experimental treatment of his cancer and he had helped fund Jill Tuck's rehab clinic. William's tests involved him making similar decisions about who would live and die from his work life before a timer ran out or else he would be dismembered by explosives strapped to his limbs. Completing his tests, he discovered himself in a fifth test, which was not meant for him but for the surviving family of a man whose coverage had been canceled by William. Though he and his captured sister, Pamela Jenkins, were able to appeal to the wifes humanity and spare William, her son activated the device which impaled William on a bed of needles which pumped hydrofluoric acid into his body, dissolving his body in half and killing him.

Alex appears in a trap with his girlfriend Sydney. They are both forced to cling onto two identical ladders made of razor wire, suspended above several upturned lawnmowers. Alex tries to knock Sydney off the ladder, but fails to do so and falls to his death.

Brad, Dina, and RyanEdit

These three victims were placed in a storefront window at a public shopping center. Brad and Ryan were chained by the wrists to opposite ends of a worktable, while Dina was suspended above its center. A movable carriage with three razor wheels - one facing each man, a third aimed at Dina - was attached to the table. Appearing on the scene, Billy stated that Dina had manipulated both men's affections for her in order to coerce them into stealing things for her. Since she had claimed to love each man, they would have the chance to fight for her love and their survival. In order to free her, one would have to push the carriage to the other's end within 60 seconds, killing him; alternatively, they could spare each other and Dina would die once the timer ran out. After a brief fight in which Brad was slightly wounded, Ryan offered a truce and they chose to save themselves, leaving Dina to be cut in half by the center wheel.

Jon Cor's character was originally written to die, but was changed during filming.[18]

Bobby DagenEdit

Bobby Dagen is the author of a self-help book based on his accounts of surviving a Jigsaw trap. In reality, though, he has made the entire story up in order to find quick fame and success.

Three of his tests each lead to the death of one staffer; in the next, he must pull out two of his teeth in order to obtain the combination to the door leading to Joyce. For the final test, he must undergo the ordeal that he claimed to have endured in his book: drive two meathooks through his pectoral muscles, then haul himself up on the attached chains to connect two extension cords and shut off the electrified wire around Joyce's platform. As he is about to plug in the cords, the hooks tear out of his flesh and he drops to the floor, and he watches helplessly as a large metal capsule slams shut around Joyce and she is incinerated within it. Bobby is written be 45 years old.

Blindfolded and hooked to a noose on the end of a winch, Cale stands at one end of a hallway whose floor has fallen away to leave only the support beams and a few loose planks. Bobby is at the other end, and the key to free Cale hangs from the ceiling between them. In 60 seconds, Bobby must guide Cale across the hallway, get the key, and pass it to him in order to prevent him from being hanged. Bobby throws the key to Cale, who just misses catching it and dies when the winch lifts him off his feet. Cale is written be 37 years old.

Dan, Evan, Jake, and Kara (Skinheads)Edit

These four victims, all members of a skinhead gang, were placed in a trap set inside a junkyard's garage. Evan is in the driver's seat of a car whose rear end is up on jacks, with his back and arms glued down. His girlfriend Kara is tied down to the floor with barbed wire, her head directly beneath one rear wheel; Dan stands strapped to a pole behind the car, with chains running from the bumper to his wrists and jaw; Jake is chained to the closed garage door, directly in front of the car. To save them and himself, Evan must tear himself loose from the seat and pull a lever protruding from the engine compartment within 30 seconds as the engine revs. He fails to do so, and the car is dropped off its jacks, crushing Kara's head. As it speeds forward Dan's arms and jaw are ripped off, Jake is hit and killed, and the car crashes into a pile of wrecks outside, causing Evan to go flying through the windshield. Hoffman rigged the trap to be inescapable and later uses Dan's corpse as a decoy to allow him to sneak back into the police station in search of Jill Tuck.

There isn't much known about Aton's past but the tape left for him reveals that the reason he is put into the trap was because he was a mercenary-for-hire whose specialty was scarring the faces of innocent people with acid, guranteeing that even if the victim survived, they would always bear the scars of their encounter.
