Anyway, enough with the names - Saw Boss had a pretty impressive power to control all plantlife connected to his system of vines and instantly transport his base. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of instances of Saw Boss doing anything himself. He's another example of a villain that just leads his minions from his chair without engaging the heroes at all - he's like Dr. Claw, except Saw Boss has actual power he doesn't hardly ever employ. In the first episode, the most he does is swear to follow Jayce across the universe after teleporting his base a few seconds too late. For having this huge vine system that spreads across galaxies, it's amazing that he can't follow Jayce into space.
It brings up a strange point that Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors follows a different formula that many of the other cartoons have. Many of the other shows had the villains trying to pull off some scheme or destruction and the heroes only get involved to stop them. IF the villains weren't active, neither would the heroes be. But this cartoon specifically has the villains going after the heroes - bringing the fight directly to them. There are no ridiculous plots perpetrated by the villains, they just have one singular mission - catch Jayce - even if they fail every episode.
Effectiveness - 2. Saw Boss does have some plans, but they all center around killing Jayce to get his root. So they're really limited to how much he can try to do. In any case, they're easily escapable traps most of the time and just followed up with a boring chase. Yawn.
