The Juggle Saw[1][note 1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, crab-like Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.


The Juggle Saws are crab-based Badniks that is colored orange with gray appendages. They also have cartoonish eyes with black pupils, a gray underbelly, and wield a giant buzzsaw.

In Sonic Mania, and its expansion Sonic Mania Plus, the Juggle Saws appear in both Acts of Press Garden Zone. This Badnik comes in a pair, which will juggle a giant buzzsaw between each other. When juggling, each Juggle Saw passes the buzzsaw between its own hands for a second before passing it onto the other, who repeats this pattern. These Badniks also sit in stationary positions on either the floor, ceiling or walls, but never on the same surface as their partner.

A Spin Attack on one Juggle Saw will force the remaining Juggle Saw to just pass the buzzsaw between its own hands, making it tricky to hit without getting injured. Defeating a Juggle Saw releases an animal from inside it.

Powers and abilities

The Juggle Saws are capable of fastening onto and climb vertical surfaces. They are also excellent jugglers.


Each pair of Juggle Saws wield a large and lethal buzzsaw which they keep in motion by juggling it around.
