SawBlaze is a heavyweight robot which has competed in every season of the BattleBots reboot since ABC Season 2.

Team captain Jamison Go was previously part of Team JACD and Overhaul in ABC Season 1, but disbanded to spearhead his own team in future seasons of BattleBots. Like Comedy Central BattleBots competitor S.O.B., SawBlaze was designed to slide underneath robots to trap them in place, then bring down an arm with a spinning disc mounted at the end to deal damage from overhead. It could also be equipped with various fork and scoop attachments depending on its opponent. In later seasons, the cutting disc weaponry could be interchanged with an asymmetric, downward-spinning disc to deliver greater hits, called a "hammer saw". SawBlaze was also paired with a front-mounted flamethrower, though this scarcely worked in its earliest fights. However, it proved to spew green flame in more recent seasons.

SawBlaze debuted exclusively as a saw bot in ABC Season 2, losing its qualifier match to Razorback by judges' decision after its relatively thin saw blade became bent and jammed. Despite this, SawBlaze returned for a three-way rumble, which it won. This basic principle would remain the same for years to come, but evolved over time to become more efficient and reliable.

In Discovery Season 3, SawBlaze sported a more resilient diamond-edged cutting disc and larger dragon head, as well as more vibrant lime green coloring across the bot. The articulating arm was upgraded to swing faster and with more power, as it doubled up as a self-righter when SawBlaze found itself upended. The team found considerably more success this season, earning a 3-1 record in the Fight Card rounds, only losing a Main Event to former semifinalist Bronco. It did enough to earn a spot in the Top 16, where it inevitably lost to Monsoon.

SawBlaze returned for Discovery Season 4, hoping to back up a successful season last time out. The dragon head was swapped out for a more functional method of preventing the saw hitting the floor when it flipped over. In the Fight Card rounds, SawBlaze only lost a Main Event to former BattleBots champion Tombstone and finished 3-1 as a result. SawBlaze dominated former BattleBots champion Son of Whyachi in the Top 16, only to be beaten in the quarter-finals by eventual runner-up Witch Doctor.

Jamison Go and SawBlaze once again returned for Discovery Season 5, with weapon upgrades allowing it to spin up and slow down in a shorter time, giving the team greater control of their primary weapon. SawBlaze finished 2-1 in the Fight Card rounds, including a statement victory over eventual runner-up Whiplash. SawBlaze made the Top 16 for the third consecutive season, avenging its loss against Witch Doctor before losing to Tantrum and falling in the quarter-finals in successive seasons.

SawBlaze is confirmed to be participating in Season 6 of BattleBots on Discovery. The biggest visual change appears to concern the robot's central fork, which had a tendency to curl upwards and hinder SawBlaze's ground game against opponents with spinning weaponry. This fork is now split down the center and is more robust than in previous seasons.

Robot History

ABC Season 2

SawBlaze vs. Razorback

Razorback's drum meets SawBlaze's saw, damaging it.

SawBlaze's dustpan configuration used against Razorback.

SawBlaze's first ever match in BattleBots was against Zach Bieber's Razorback. Before this match, SawBlaze swapped its front wedge prongs for a dustpan. Despite controlling most of the fight, its weapon was damaged by Razorback around 30 seconds into the fight. Though still functional, the saw now lacked a chain and would be less effective. In any case, SawBlaze shoved and controlled Razorback for the rest of the match but did not put its saw into use again, while Razorback's drum made no big connections, only being able to grind at the former's wedge. Towards the end of the battle, Razorback's drum was also disabled. Despite this, Razorback won on a controversial 2-1 judges' decision. SawBlaze was not chosen to be a wildcard, meaning it was eliminated from the tournament.

SawBlaze vs. Overhaul vs. Road Rash

SawBlaze was not finished yet as it participated in a small rumble with Overhaul and Road Rash where its black saw blade. When the rumble began, SawBlaze was on the attack but after Road Rash was flipped by Overhaul, SawBlaze went after Overhaul. SawBlaze chased Overhaul around the BattleBox, taking damage from the killsaws and helping to pin Overhaul against Road Rash near the screws, though its saw was not working at that time. Soon after, SawBlaze let Overhaul out and started dueling with each other, with SawBlaze managing to beat Overhaul in the ground game most of the time. SawBlaze's flame ignition system was broken throughout the fight so it had to use the sparks from the killsaws to ignite it's unique green flame. After taking damage from the killsaws, SawBlaze was able to get its sawblade working again and got Overhaul on its dustpan, where it started grinding into the top of Overhaul's clamp. After Overhaul escaped, SawBlaze gave chase and found Overhaul toying with a flipped Road Rash. SawBlaze came over from the rear and sawed into Overhaul's upper clamp once more. After backing off, SawBlaze proceeded to scoop up Road Rash and cut into Road Rash's saw arm before the time ran out. SawBlaze won a unanimous 3-0 judges' decision.

Discovery Season 3

SawBlaze vs. Overhaul

SawBlaze slices into the rear of Overhaul.

SawBlaze slices through Overhaul's crushing jaw.

SawBlaze's first opponent was against former MIT members and Overhaul. When the match began, SawBlaze was quickly able to slam Overhaul hard against the arena barrier. Despite Overhaul's extra attachment, SawBlaze continued its attacks and maneuvered Overhaul around the arena. SawBlaze's next attack put Overhaul up against the arena barrier and dropped its saw, which created plenty of sparks. SawBlaze released Overhaul but still had control of the fight as Overhaul simply was not low enough to overcome the ground clearance of its opponent. SawBlaze got under Overhaul again and dropped the saw again, sending more sparks through the air, as well as cutting halfway through Overhaul's crushing mechanism. When SawBlaze released this time, Overhaul was no longer moving moving, seemingly stuck on the arena barrier. As a result, Overhaul was counted out and SawBlaze advanced to the next stage of the tournament.

SawBlaze vs. Reality

SawBlaze slices into the rear of Reality.

SawBlaze's next opponent was against newcomer Reality. The match was off to a great start for SawBlaze as they were easily able to get under Reality and shove them against the arena barrier before dropping their saw. SawBlaze

continued to shove its opponent around until Reality managed to land a hit under SawBlaze and emit some sparks as a result. This did not deter SawBlaze however and they resumed their usual strategy before they had the middle fork on the front bent up from Reality's attack. Time eventually ran out and SawBlaze won on a unanimous 3-0 judges decision to advance.

SawBlaze vs. Mohawk

SawBlaze slices into the rear of Mohawk.

SawBlaze topples Mohawk and slices its baseplate.

SawBlaze's next match was against Mohawk. As the fight got underway, SawBlaze got underneath Mohawk and shoved it into the arena wall before dropping its saw without any sparks. SawBlaze released its opponent before shoving it under the pulverizer where Mohawk took two shots. Both robots maneuvered around a bit before SawBlaze got it toppled against the arena barrier where it could not move or get away then sliced into Mohawk's underbelly. Mohawk was counted out, giving SawBlaze the win by KO.

SawBlaze vs. Bronco

SawBlaze next found itself against former semi-finalist Bronco. The match was pretty even to start as neither robot wanted to make the 1st move. However, SawBlaze was thrown into the air when it finally engaged and landed upside down with its saw arm outside the body. Before SawBlaze could attempt to self right, it was thrown again and threw sparks off of Bronco with its saw in return. SawBlaze was then nearly thrown into the screws but escaped. SawBlaze then caught a break and got underneath Bronco, shoving it around a bit before Bronco broke free. SawBlaze then got its front prongs caught in Bronco's top armor but got free after several seconds. SawBlaze avoided another flip before it was tossed by Bronco again and self-righted. With the fight winding down, SawBlaze and Bronco were locked together again and SawBlaze took a final flip as time ran out. The judges awarded a unanimous 3-0 decision to Bronco.

SawBlaze vs. End Game

SawBlaze next participated in the USA vs The World special tournament to try and earn a point for its team and was put up against End Game. The match did not start well for SawBlaze as they were taking hits from their opponent, and had their central front fork bent up. This made it harder for them to get underneath their opponent. However, they were able to do so and took End Game into the arena barrier, where it attempted to cut into End Game's backside with its saw. SawBlaze tried to mount another attack and was thrown into the air, where a chain came off. This did not seem to affect SawBlaze much as they continued to attack, and managed to push End Game into the arena barrier again. After this, End Game took a final hit from the killsaws and stopped moving in the final seconds of the fight. The judges awarded a 2-1 split decision and 1 point to SawBlaze and the USA.

SawBlaze vs. Monsoon

SawBlaze did enough to get into the Top 16 and went up against Tom Brewster's Monsoon. The match started well for SawBlaze, as they shoved Monsoon around and largely kept their the weapon at bay. However, they found themselves up against the arena barrier with their rear end facing Monsoon's weapon, and took damage to their tire as a result. SawBlaze was still able to move despite the damage, but lost part of the weapon arm with the next impact. This also caused the weapon arm to fall backward into its retracted position, where it was totally ineffective. SawBlaze continued to use its dustpan to control Monsoon with its primary weapon dead, but the damage was racking up. SawBlaze eventually lost the damaged tire and then the whole wheel. SawBlaze caught fire in the last moments of the fight, but survived to a judges' decision. Monsoon won by unanimous decision, eliminating SawBlaze from the tournament.

Discovery Season 4

SawBlaze vs. Rotator

SawBlaze's first match of the season was against quarter-finalist, Rotator. Before the fight, SawBlaze had been configured to have a sturdier wedge to defend against Rotator's undercutting blade, and thicker rubber plates to append the uppercutter. Though, it turns out Rotator was also configured to match SawBlaze. Rotator was roughly half the size of its usual appearance and was shaped to be more pentagonal, with only one under-cutting blade and four wedgelets attached to it's back in hopes of getting under SawBlaze.

SawBlaze cuts down Rotator.

SawBlaze unleashes a flurry of sparks off Rotator.

As soon as the match began, SawBlaze immediately charged out of its square but was appended by Rotator's forks early on. Rotator swung around and its spinner collided with SawBlaze's wedge. SawBlaze retaliated with lightning agility by forcefully shoving Rotator up onto the screws right in front of the judges. The impact flipped Rotator out of control making Rotator inverted. It took SawBlaze a bit of time to bring its saw down as the team had some problems with their weapon controller, causing the saw to have trouble spinning up. Once it got going, SawBlaze brought down its saw onto Rotator, causing sparks to fly. SawBlaze released Rotator and its blade immediately powered up again. SawBlaze used Rotator's fork to its advantage and threw Rotator against the wall, its blade brushing against SawBlaze's wedge. SawBlaze continued to control the pace of the match and almost shoved Rotator into the screws again, but ended up bumping into the screws and losing its grip on Rotator. SawBlaze chased Rotator across the BattleBox and almost managed to pulverize Rotator, but Rotator's forks managed to get under SawBlaze and its wedge briefly. Rotator's blade continued to make contact with SawBlaze's wedge, but little if any damage was caused. Rotator was then taken to the screws, preventing the body from being stuck on the screws. SawBlaze made a second attempt, but Rotator's forks got in the way. Rotator found itself yet again in SawBlaze's grasp and was slammed into the arena barrier. SawBlaze used its saw on Rotator's wedgelets, sending even more sparks flying. The carnage continued for SawBlaze as it carried its opponent around the arena while attacking it before sending Rotator into the arena barrier again. For the fourth time, SawBlaze dragged Rotator against the screws, stopping its weapon and ramming Rotator under the pulverizer, which hammered Rotator multiple times. Jamison Go kept the pressure on, unwilling to let the battle go to the judges. Rotator deflected a charge from SawBlaze and spun around to line back up again. Rotator's spinning was cut short by SawBlaze, who popped Rotator into the air by hitting its spinning bar just right, sending it reeling into the screws. Rotator tried escaping, but SawBlaze forced them back in, leaving Rotator to get chewed up in the last ten seconds. Rotator got out, right side up with only five seconds left in the match. Rotator tried to land one more hit, but the time ran out as they were lined up perfectly, but could not deliver the final shot. The judges ruled an unanimous 3-0 decision in favor of SawBlaze.

SawBlaze vs. Tombstone

SawBlaze tanks Tombstone's blows.

SawBlaze in the middle of the arena, being counted out after getting both of its wheels disabled by Tombstone.

SawBlaze next found itself against former champ Tombstone. For this fight, SawBlaze went with a stronger front wedge and the same defensive setup for its match against Rotator to try and use Tombstone's energy against itself. When the match began, SawBlaze was doing rather well as they prevented Tombstone's weapon from causing anything more than sparks. SawBlaze then managed to get under Tombstone in spite of Tombstone's powerful weapon, and shoved them under the pulverizer. However, the pulverizer missed and hit SawBlaze instead, separating the two bots. SawBlaze was unable to keep Tombstone's weapon from reaching top speed and eventually started to take damage to its protective wedge. SawBlaze continued to lose pieces of its wedge and eventually lost drive on one side. SawBlaze continued to tough out Tombstone's blade, once managing to cause Tombstone to unbalance and gyro from its own spinning bar. SawBlaze tried to crabwalk over to Tombstone and capitalize, but Ray Billings regained control of his robot, striking SawBlaze's other side and immobilizing it completely. SawBlaze was counted out, giving Tombstone the win by KO.

SawBlaze vs. Blacksmith

SawBlaze's next opponent was Al Kindle and Blacksmith. In response, SawBlaze opted to go with its new hammer saw, which was thicker than its traditional saw and could hit harder and its traditional front forks. As the match got underway, SawBlaze struggled to land any hits as their new saw was causing the robot to raise its front forks off the arena floor briefly. Luckily, SawBlaze managed to stabilize and shoved Blacksmith around before dropping its hammer saw. SawBlaze released, then took shots from Blacksmith's hammer. SawBlaze went back on the attack, shoving Blacksmith around again. After a third attack, SawBlaze's saw stopped working as the belts powering it had gotten tangled up, which left SawBlaze vulnerable but Blacksmith was unable to make use of this vulnerability before time ran out. The judges awarded SawBlaze a 2-1 split decision.

SawBlaze vs. Ribbot

SawBlaze continued its run with a match against newcomer Ribbot. It planned to use its hammer saw configuration, but since it was still too heavy and was in the process of being milled down still, they opted for the traditional three front prong and saw configuration. SawBlaze did well to start as they were shoving Ribbot around and tearing off the cosmetic legs and top in the process. SawBlaze continued to attack until its saw got bent out of shape and could no longer work properly. Still, SawBlaze maintained control, using its weapon to attack and take Ribbot into the screws, which removed Ribbot's right front tire. As the match progressed, SawBlaze continued to show control and aggression, flipping Ribbot over and getting it under the pulverizer before time ran out. The judges gave SawBlaze a unanimous 3-0 decision. After the fight, Kenny awarded Jamison Go a half-eaten cupcake (the other half was eaten by Chris Rose) as it was his birthday, and both he and crowd sang "Happy Birthday".

SawBlaze vs. Son of Whyachi

Having qualified as the No.7 seed, SawBlaze was placed against former heavyweight champion and No.10 seed, Son of Whyachi. For this match, SawBlaze put their horizontal plow on, and because they shaved some weight off their hammer saw for this stage, they ran with it. SawBlaze started off well, mostly blocking Son of Whyachi from getting the big hits it's known for and staying on them. SawBlaze pushed Son of Whyachi around and eventually on the screws, where it cut into one of Son of Whyachi's weapon support bars. Son of Whyachi eventually escaped, but SawBlaze stayed on them and took minor hits from the former champ before bringing them back on the screws to slice into a second weapon support bar, even cutting through one of SOW's drive batteries. This resulted in smoke that evolved into flames, but SOW was still going and SawBlaze maintained control until time ran out. The judges awarded SawBlaze a unanimous 3-0 decision and a spot in the quarterfinals.

SawBlaze vs. Witch Doctor

SawBlaze takes some shavings to its wedge from Witch Doctor.

SawBlaze takes a shot to the right fork before getting flipped.

Now in the final eight, SawBlaze faced the No.2 seed Witch Doctor. SawBlaze kept its hammer saw for this fight, but switched their wedge to their three forks. Right out of the gate, SawBlaze missed its box rush and took some minor chipping from Witch Doctor's drum, but not hindering it much. One big hit managed to pop SawBlaze up and bend its middle fork out of shape, but it still managed to scoop up Witch Doctor and slam it into the screws, flipping it over as well from the impact. Unfortunately, SawBlaze took a couple more shots, even having its forks bent slightly. One big hit allowed Witch Doctor to physically throw SawBlaze into the air, then another to right SawBlaze, but bending its saw arm at an angle. SawBlaze was able to push Witch Doctor again, but got popped once more, taking shots underneath that tossed it in the air. Once out of the corner, SawBlaze tried to keep its forks pointed at the drum, but the shots managed to rip off the extension on the left fork and disable the drive on the right side. SawBlaze found itself on its head again, managing to right itself as Witch Doctor struck its right fork. SawBlaze was flipped once more, righting itself to get its wheel clipped on the drum before bullying Witch Doctor into a corner again.

SawBlaze balancing on its saw.

SawBlaze tried powering up its saw again, but was pushed into the wall and hit again, causing a big shower of sparks from underneath and flipping it again. SawBlaze once again got up, but took more shots to its left wheel and forks. One final shot happened to break the wheel hub of SawBlaze's right wheel, and flipping it over one last time. SawBlaze balanced on his arm, but when he tried to reset, smoke poured out and the arm stopped altogether. SawBlaze was counted out, giving Witch Doctor the win by KO and a place in the semis.

Discovery Season 5

SawBlaze vs. Whiplash

SawBlaze's first battle of the season was against former semi-finalist, as well as a fellow former quarter-finalist, the agile and versatile Whiplash. For this match, SawBlaze ran its hammer saw and pronged configuration. Although it took a minor shot early on to its front, SawBlaze was undeterred and slammed Whiplash into the wall. SawBlaze got underneath, again pushing Whiplash into the wall and bringing its weapon into play and threatening to cause damage. SawBlaze backed up, scooping Whiplash again and keeping it against the wall before ramming it into another wall of the Battlebox. SawBlaze continued to dictate the fight as it shoved Whiplash into the screws, but not without receiving a hit from Whiplash during the push as it tried to retaliate. SawBlaze was briefly overturned but got righted quickly and lined up again as both discs clashed. SawBlaze proceeded to chase after Whiplash, then got underneath once again. After some maneuvering, SawBlaze shoved Whiplash into the screws and waited a brief moment. Whiplash was able to get underneath SawBlaze in a rare show of dominance from the Vazquez family in this battle, but SawBlaze was able to hit Whiplash's front left wheel. It then pinned Whiplash against the wall, striking the top of its opponent with its hammer saw, visibly damaging Whiplash in the process. This proved to be the KO shot, and SawBlaze backed away.

SawBlaze delivers the killing blow to Whiplash.

Whiplash was counted out, giving SawBlaze the win by KO after 2:30.

SawBlaze vs. Uppercut

In this battle, SawBlaze took a hit from Uppercut and was sent flying, nearly ending up out of the arena. SawBlaze worked itself off the arena barrier but took another blow that ripped open its fuel tank, causing a massive explosion. SawBlaze was then thrown upside down and lost the chain that powered its saw arm. SawBlaze was righted with help from its opponent but this completely disabled its drive. SawBlaze was counted out, giving Uppercut the win by KO.

SawBlaze takes a brutal shot to its fuel tank.

SawBlaze vs. Rusty

SawBlaze faced Rusty for their final Fight Night fight of the 2020 season. Knowing full well Rusty was not on the same caliber, Jamison Go and his team armed SawBlaze with its traditional saw but with artwork of the hammer saw on the sides. This allowed SawBlaze to control the fight but still put on a show. SawBlaze went after Rusty and quickly started cutting, causing sparks to fly and leaving Rusty on its side with minor damage. SawBlaze then righted Rusty and attacked again, this time hitting Rusty's left side near the tread. After a few more hits, SawBlaze cut into Rusty's top armor, leaving noticeable gashes but Rusty still kept going. SawBlaze then started to get more aggressive and slammed Rusty into both the screws and arena barrier before taking them to the pulverizer. By now, Rusty was having some drive issues but managed to survive until the fight ended. The judges awarded SawBlaze a 3-0 unanimous decision.

SawBlaze vs. Kraken

Sawblaze had done enough to make the Top 32, its first match was against Kraken. and Matt Spurk, a rival of Jamison Go's from many years ago. The match started well for SawBlaze as they hit Kraken hard into the screws, flipping Kraken over. Kraken righted itself and SawBlaze faced a struggle as their AR515 hammer saw was in the mouth of Kraken and Kraken wasn't letting go. With neither robot's drive fully on the ground, neither were able to take control until Kraken let go. This allowed SawBlaze to attack again, causing damage to Kraken's head before slamming them hard into the arena barrier and chopping off Kraken's left wheel. With Kraken's mobility limited, SawBlaze opted not to wait for a countout and continued to attack, losing the use of its hammer saw but still able to control the rest of the match before time ran out. The judges awarded SawBlaze a unanimous 3-0 decision and a spot in the Top 16.

SawBlaze vs. Witch Doctor

Now in the Top 16, SawBlaze met the Gellatlys and Witch Doctor, who had beaten SawBlaze in the previous season en route to the final. Seeking revenge, SawBlaze started on the offensive, pinning Witch Doctor against the wall and landing a hit which cracked the rib cage. Witch Doctor retaliated, landing a few shots of its own to upend its opponent. SawBlaze used its three forks to great effect however, sliding underneath Witch Doctor's front to negate their vertical spinner and lift the front wheels off the floor. SawBlaze had the flamethrower activated by this point and landed another hit on the top of the rib cage. Witch Doctor retaliated by popping Jamieson Go's bot into the air, but SawBlaze again recovered to drive Witch Doctor across the box and tear a panel away. Now stuck under the pulverizer, SawBlaze capitalised on the fact Witch Doctor could not spin up, and landed a hit directly on their weapon. Witch Doctor retreated to the center of the box, now missing a front wedge. SawBlaze was not unscathed either however, with its middle prong bent upwards from Witch Doctor's attacks. As the fight entered its final minute, SawBlaze landed several more shots to Witch Doctor's top and smoke began to pour from it. SawBlaze reversed into Witch Doctor, landing a weapon-to-weapon uppercut and jamming the two bots together momentarily. Witch Doctor was now immobile, but the clock was also counting down to signal the end of the fight. Witch Doctor was counted out with one second remaining, and SawBlaze moved into the Top 8.

SawBlaze vs. Tantrum

Next up was Aaron Hill's Tantrum, who had beaten No.2 seed Bloodsport to make it this far. SawBlaze started on the aggressive, rushing over to Tantrum's square. Tantrum drove to the center of the box and SawBlaze drove over it, taking a small hit from the drum in the process. SawBlaze's front prongs began to wheelie, but still managed to get underneath Tantrum and activate the flamethrower. Tantrum slipped away however, and took advantage of having the lower ground clearance, attacking SawBlaze head on. It then landed a punch with its drum, popping SawBlaze into the air. Struggling to get its own primary weapon into play however, Tantrum was able to outdrive SawBlaze, using its agility to pin its opponent against the screws and hold it upside-down. SawBlaze used the arm to self-right, but Tantrum again was able to slide underneath the three front prongs and render the hammer saw useless. Now halfway through the fight, Tantrum pinned SawBlaze against the wall, right in front of Jamison Go and his team. Tantrum took the opportunity to spin its drum up to speed and deliver a punch, but this only freed SawBlaze and did not cause visible damage. Tantrum remained aggressive, overturning SawBlaze several times in the closing moments and ripping a panel away from the underside. In the closing moments however, SawBlaze managed to grip Tantrum and landed two lasting hits on its opponent. The fight went to the judges, and Tantrum won by a unanimous decision, ending SawBlaze's season.
