Blade is the leader of the puppets and considered the most popular puppet (as well as the most popular Full Moon character) among fans, and is the only puppet as well as Pinhead and Jester to appear in all of the Puppet Master movies to date.
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.
Blade can slice/cut enemies to shredded pieces, do Razor Foot, flies high in supersonic speed with Mechanical Wing Manifestation and eyes that glows red and has “bullet eyes” that pop out of his sockets from time to time. 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. He can also fly after Robert Toulon updated him with long, strong wings he made for him to fly in supersonic speed.

Blade was created by Andre' Toulon and designed after Gestapo Major (Sturmbannführer) Krauss. He has the soul of Dr. Hess, a German scientist and medical doctor. 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, 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. In Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys, Robert Toulon gave him a bigger longer hook hand and a knife much bigger than his normal knife. Blade's most common companion is Pinhead in films I-V and Curse of The Puppet Master.
- 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, a mere coincidence or Blade must’ve been made after Mephisto.
- Blade is the only character whose suit does not change from film to film.
- According to David Schmoeller (director of the first film), Blade puppet was 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.
