Jigsaw is one of the rare horror film killers with no supernatural capabilities. In spite of that, Jigsaw has managed to live on as an active part of the Saw franchise (in some capacity) even after his death.

Jigsaw is by far the most conscientious killer on our list. His twisted sense of justice makes him all the more frightening to audiences.
