*** The latter two are made even more confusing since Saw 3D introduced a brand new cop character to take on the role of main protagonist when ''either one'' could have taken the role on, providing a character that audiences already had an investment in (Rather than wasting time developing a major, never before seen new character in the final film) while also creating a stronger connection to the previous films.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Jigsaw/John Kramer, a menacing and charismatic villain with an intriguing MO. Even when fans felt that the films were going downhill, Tobin Bell could always be counted on to be menacing and creepy. Some fans feel this way about the succeeding Jigsaw killers, but none could really surpass the original.

** His last moments with Lawrence. A wounded Lawrence is desperately trying to calm down a hysterical, crying Adam, telling him he needs to get help and promising to bring someone back. Gripping each other and pressing their foreheads together, Adam begging and screaming for him to not leave. Kill me now.

** In the first film, Gordon promises his daughter that he's not going to leave her. By the time the seventh film rolls around, his wife's left him and taken the daughter with her. [[spoiler: Not to mention that he's working with the same guy as the man that would hold her hostage. After telling her that 'The Bad Man' didn't exist and wasn't hiding in her room.]]



** Amanda was by no means a great person. [[spoiler: But her death at the end of Saw III is pretty painful to watch, especially with her fear and pain visible on her face, and with John reaching out to her with that look of utter grief and sorrow.]

** A little one, but the last words Gordon said to his daughter in the first movie were him promising that he's not going to leave her. Come the seventh movie, it turns out that his wife left him, taking their daughter with her.

** Quite a few people are behind [[spoiler: Hoffman]] because of [[spoiler: his]] actions in the 5th and 6th movies painting [[spoiler: him]] as a Badass MagnificentBastard Determinator who improvises plans on the fly whenever things start going bad for [[spoiler: him]]. Just as many if not more people [[spoiler: are happy he got his final comeuppance in the finale.]]

** [[spoiler: Detective Peter Strahm in Saw V]], a BadAss, {{Determinator}} cop who had upgraded from supporting character to a main protagonist, survived an inescapable trap, and began piecing things together about Jigsaw and his apprentices... only to be killed in [[CruelAndUnusualDeath an incredibly nasty way]] at the end of the film, which didn't really amount to a strong impact on the A-plot anyways.

** [[spoiler: Detective Lindsey PEeez in Saw VI]]. A popular character who [[DroppedABridgeOnHim died offscreen]] only to be brought back (with the previous death being retconned into an attempt at faking it).... to be unceremoniously killed off again. Though this time it was onscreen, at least.
