First Appearance Puppet Master
Last Appearance N/A

The Leader of the puppets is one of the few puppets (the others being Pinhead and Jester) to appear in all of the Puppet Master movies to date, and the only puppet to have appeared in the vhs and dvd covers of the puppet master movies. He is 1'9", weighs 4 lbs, and bears a gothic-styled appearance. He has a gaunt pale face with seemingly empty black eye sockets and long white hair and wears a black trench coat and wide-brimmed hat.

It is revealed in (Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge) that Blade was created by Andre Toulon and modled after the Nazi villain, named Major Kraus. He has the soul of Dr. Hess, a German scientist and medical doctor who wanted to work with Toulon. He was used for evil under puppet masters Neil Gallagher, Andre Toulon (in Puppet Master II) and Dr. Magrew, all three of whom he later turned against. He was used for good under Andre Toulon, Rick Meyers, Danny Coogan, Peter Hertz A.K.A. Eric Weiss, and Robert Toulon whom he each served loyally. Blade has a sharp hook for his left hand and a knife for his right hand. He sometimes has spike-shaped "bullet eyes" that pop out of his sockets from time to time. Blade also appears in Boogeymen: The Killer Compilation.

Appears in all the Puppet Master films.

Weapons
Hook, Sword, Bullet eyes, Razor–Sharp Steel Teeth, Hatchet ax, Claw hand , Ballistic knife, Shotgun and Regular hands

Trivia:

  • The Retro version of Blade was Andre's fellow puppeteer, Valentin Thompson.
  • Although Blade was designed after Major Krauss, A puppet, named Mephisto, had a face that looked exactly like Blade's. This might be an error in continuity or a mere coincidence.
  • Blade is the only character whose suit does not change from film to film.
  • While the Blade puppet was also designed after David Schmoeller's favorite actor, Klaus Kinski.
  • Blade's vocal effects were done by Bert Rosario.
  • The Blade Action figure from Full Moon Toys includes a hatchet as an accessory. *However Blade never used a hatchet as a weapon in any of the films. The toy has red eyes that light up except for a limited edition version that has pop-out eyes like the movies.
  • The Final Chapter marked the last time David W. Allen would work on the special effects for the Puppet Master series. Subsequent follow-ups feature a combination of rod and string puppets, save for Curse of the Puppet Master, which relies heavily on stock footage for action sequences.
  • Blade also appears in Boogeymen: The Killer Compilation.

He was used for evil under puppet masters Neil Gallagher, Andre Toulon (Puppet Master II), and Dr. Magrew, all whom he turned against in the end.

Jester has the ability to rotate three portions of his face: his forehead, middle face, and chin. He can show five expressions: happy, devious, sad, angry or surprised (which also doubles as scared). He holds a scepter which can sometimes be used as a weapon. However, Jester's only seen with his scepter in Puppet master vs Demonic toys. Out of all the puppets, Jester has the most designs. In Puppet Master 1-5, Jester had red clothes, his sleeves were mixed in red and black, and he had a red hat. In Puppet Master 6-8, Jester was all red, mixed on his sleeves were red and blue, and had a blue hat. In The Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys, Jester was all orange. He was given a mace-arm by Robert Toulon after a terrible fire in Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys. In Puppet Master, the puppets turned on their master because he threw Jester, and in part II, the puppets tried to find the formula for the starving puppet.

Appears in all the Puppet Master films.

Name Pinhead
Gender Male
Alignment Herman Strauss
Relatives The Puppets
Occupation Truck Driver
Status Active
First Appearance Puppet Master
Last Appearance N/A

Pinhead, along with Blade and Jester, are the only characters to appear in all the Puppet Master movies to date. He is 1'7" and weighs 2 lbs. Before he became a puppet, Pinhead was a man named Herman Strauss. Strauss was a truck driver who secretly brought food to the Jewish ghettos; as a result, he was killed by the Nazis for treason. His retro version was the soul of a beggar Andre Toulon knew. The Retro version was the first puppet Toulon (with the help of Afzel) brought to life (Retro Puppet Master).

Pinhead was used for evil under puppet masters Neil Gallagher, Andre Toulon (Puppet Master II), and Dr. Magrew, all whom he turned against in the end. Pinhead's only power is his two big hands that can deliver quite a punch. He's also unnaturally strong, able to move or drag a full grown human body with ease.

Appears in all the Puppet Master films.
Weapons
Arms, Strangle Rope, Hands, Chained–spiked balls, Dumbbell weight, Bazooka, C.B.S. Knuckles (Crusher Brass, Steel)

Torch

Torch
Torch
The Arson Puppet
Vital statistics
Name Torch
Gender Male
Alignment Sargent Stone
Relatives The Puppets
Occupation Officer
Status Active
First Appearance Puppet Master II: His Unholy Creation
Last Appearance N/A

Torch was built in Puppet Master II by Andre Toulon. Torch later betrayed Toulon and set him on fire. Afterwards, he assisted Camille in "visiting" mentally ill children. He appeared in Puppet Master 5: The Final Chapter assisting Rick Meyers defeat a demon. His fate and who he was in real life are currently unknown. Torch has a flamethrower for his right hand that is used to burn people alive. In Puppet Master: Axis of Evil Torch's picture is seen as the credits roll. In Puppet Master X: Axis Rising Torch has been mistaken to appear, but is impossible since Andre Toulon created him in 1991. They may be mistaken by The Puppet Blitzkrieg, or another Nazi puppet. Torch is one of the least seen and most violent of Toulon's puppets, created seemingly only to kill by the zombified Andre Toulon in Puppet Master 2. In that film Torch kills an old farm woman, destroying the brain matter he was meant to harvest, kills a child simply for being provoked, is ordered to kill Michael Kenney, and is the only puppet to fatally attack his master when the others turn on him. In Puppet Master 5, he is loyal to his kinder master, Rick Myers, but still shows occasional aggression, becoming the only puppet in both 4 and 5 to kill a human (Who had attacked Rick). Torch's tendencies have led some to believe he is the violent and cruel Neil Gallagher from part 1, though others have speculated that due to the killings of animals (And Torch's seeming offense when Toulon devalues animal brains) in Puppet Master 2, that he possesses an animal's spirit. A third theory is that Torch's soul is that of Patrick Bramwell, whose brain Tunneler was seen drilling into.
Weapons
Flamethrower, Grenade Launchers, Extensive arsenal of fire-creating weapons, flaming sword, explosive flaming bullets

Vital statistics
Name Leech Woman
Gender Female
Alignment Elsa Toulon
Relatives The Puppets
Occupation Scientist/Assistant
Status Deceased
First Appearance Puppet Master
Last Appearance N/A

Leech Woman is 1'7" and weighs 2 lbs. She began as a young Swiss girl named Ilsa. Ilsa's father was an unloving Swiss ambassador. One night in 1902, while she and her father were in Paris, Ilsa traveled to the Theater Magic where she met her future husband Andre Toulon. Later, she is kidnapped by the slaves of the demon lord, Sutekh, and is rescued by Andre and his first six puppets (Retro Puppet Master). Later in 1926, Ilsa (now named Elsa)' and Andre go to Cairo, where Andre's (presumed 7th) living puppet, Mephisto, is burned to ash. An old merchant gives Toulon a new type of magic which Ilsa convinces Andre to learn from the merchant.

In Berlin, Ilsa and Andre have four new puppets, Tunneler, Jester, Pinhead and Six-Shooter. Tunneler, Pinhead and Jester are based on their friends: Joseph Sebastion (Tunneler), an American Soldier who was captured and forced to work in the salt mines by the Nazis; Jester, a book-keeper named Hans Seiderman who the Toulons liked for his love of jokes and who was shot to death by the Nazis; and Pinhead, a kindhearted man called Herman Strauss who was killed for smuggling food into a work camp (Six-Shooter's identity was never revealed). Ilsa was murdered by Major Krauss when she tried to stop the Nazis from kidnapping Andre and the Puppets. Andre later went to a morgue with Pinhead and Jester, where they took the tissue from Ilsa's corpse.

Back at their temporary camp, Andre injects the formula that he made from the tissue into the puppet of Ilsa he made for her, resurrecting her as a puppet. In Puppet Master II, Andre's zombie form has Blade, Leech Woman, and Torch go to gather material for a new batch of fluid. Leech Woman is captured by an overweight woman and thrown into her fireplace after she killed her husband. Torch then set fire to the woman killing her to avenge Leech Woman. Charles Band, however, mentioned that Leech Woman was saved and revived, but was not present in Puppet Master 4. Leech Woman's power is her ability to throw up her leeches (hence her name). In addition to her leeches she wields a small knife.

Status Active
First Appearance Puppet Master
Last Appearance N/A

Not much is known about Tunneler, despite him being one of Toulon's first main puppets. According to a trading card released by Full Moon Features, Tunneler's soul is Joseph Sebastian, a soldier who was forced to work in the Nazi's salt mines until he died. As a puppet, Tunneler is more of a "gimmick" than a character. Tunneler does not show much distinguishable personality, when he appears the focus is usually on what his weapon does rather than how he acts. Tunneler is more of a follower than a leader, rarely acting first.

According to a trading card released by Fullmoon features, Tunneler's soul is Joseph Sebastian, a soldier who was forced to work in the Nazis' salt mines until he died.

Tunneler's namesake and main weapon is a cone-shaped power drill replacing his scalp; he usually kills his victims by charging them head-on with his drill running.

Decapitron's height and weight are also not revealed in the films as well. Decapitron has the soul of Andre Toulon, the namesake and creator of the puppets in the Puppet Master Franchise. Unlike the other puppet creations of Andre Toulon's, Decapitron cannot be activated by having the formula injected directly through a needle.
