There are plenty of characteristics that set John Kramer aka The Jigsaw Killer (played by Tobin Bell) in the Saw franchise, apart from other iconic horror villains. He’s older than most, more intelligent than the average, and skilled at indoctrinating protégés. He’s also driven by a strict moral code and, surprisingly, he’s never actually committed a murder.
