SawBlaze is a robot built by Team G3 Robotics for the second season of ABC's BattleBots reboot. Like S.O.B., it used a front "dustpan" to scoop up robots and then bring down an arm which had a circular saw blade attached to deal damage. This weapon was also paired with a flamethrower, though the flamethrower apparently never worked in combat. SawBlaze also had front wedge prongs. Unfortunately, it didn't do well in the competition as it lost its first match to Razorback. However, it did win a consolation rumble. SawBlaze was based off team captain Jamison Go's long-running Ron series of robots.
Some members of the team also competed with Overhaul in the first season of ABC's BattleBots, which reached the quarterfinals; for SawBlaze, it was Jamison Go or the J in Team JACD.
ABC Season 2
SawBlaze's first ever match in BattleBots was against Zach Bieber's Razorback. Before this match, SawBlaze swapped its front wedge prongs out 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 puts its saw into use again, while Razorback's drum made no big connections but ground at the former's wedge. Towards the end of the battle, Razorback's drum also became disabled. Razorback won on a controversial 2-1 judge's decision. SawBlaze unfortunately was not chosen to be a wild card meaning it was eliminated from the tournament.SawBlaze wasn't finished yet as it participated in a small rumble with Overhaul and Road Rash. 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 in front of the screws. SawBlaze used its weapon a few times, even lighting some fire before continuing its hunt on Overhaul. 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. Eventually, time ran out and SawBlaze won a unanimous 3-0 judge's decision.
