VA Pilot


Various energy attacks, Blodia


Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness (1995)

Voice Actor:

Todd Haberkorn


Jin's father (Ken Saotome) belonged to a unit that was killed in an accident one year before the start of Cyberbots. To honor his memory, he seeks to become the best VA (Variant Armor, used for robot combat) pilot alive and wants to prove his worth through the VA battle circuit. He begins to question his father's death after meeting SHADE for the first time. Jin's mood goes from calm to rage within seconds, but he remains a good guy. He is also friends with Gawaine Murdock. His main mech is BX-02 Blodia.


Skill CardsEdit

  • Saotome Diving: Jin spins quickly transforming his feet into a small tornado.
  • Saotome Typhoon: Jin moves forward in a typhoon, hitting the opponent multiple times. Strength and distance of this move is dependent on the button pressed.
  • Saotome Dynamite: Jin releases energy (and his clothes) and shoots them out around him. This move will cause knockback if the opponent gets caught in it, and has brief invincibility and acts as an energy attack.
  • Saotome Crush: A blockable command grab. If Jin successfully grabs his opponent he will drag them around the screen then proceeds to slam them down.
  • Machine gun fist: Jin rapidly punches in a certain direction.
  • Lariat: Jin spins twice with his arms out while stepping forward.

Spell CardsEdit

  • Blodia Punch: Jin proceeds to punch his opponent and Blodia's fist also proceeds to punch as well. Last hit will force the opponent to fly off the screen.
  • Saotome Cyclone: Jin creates a big cyclone which only needs to hit once to do full damage, causing the opponent to get stuck on the giant tornado if it hits.
  • Saotome Shine: If Jin is the last surviving member of his team and only has 30% or less health, he will flash automatically when he is on his feet. This enters him a state of power and defense increase. Despite being a Spell Card, it doesn't take any power.

Last WordEdit

  • BX-02 Blodia: Jin calls his VA Blodia, jumps into the cockpit and proceeds to take control. You can then use the normal button and joystick commands to control the actions of the mech. During the time this move is used, Jin is totally invincible and his Spell Card meter begins to act as a timer.


  • Battle Intro: Jin jumps off Bloadia and says “Whether you’re metal or flesh, I’ll destroy you!”
  • Taunt: He flashes and appears in his underwear while scrubbing his back with a towel and says "What a loser!".
  • Victory Pose: He jumps on Bloadia and strikes a pose before saying “Go back to playing video simulations, weakling!”

(Jin has defeated Fafnir, but Blodia is damaged.)

Jin: Phew, that was difficult! That stupid lizard damaged my Blodia!

(Nitori walks up to him.)

Nitori: Excuse me, sir. I couldn’t help but notice your machine. If you want, I can help fix it.

Jin: Ha! You really think you can fix this, little girl?

Nitori: Never judge a book by it’s cover.

(Nitori has fixed Blodia and also added several weapons to it.)

Nitroi: So what do you think?

Jin: Hmm. Not bad! Say, can I ask you something?

(Later Nitori and Jin are participating in the Cyberbots tournament. Jin is using Blodia and Nitori is using Hisoutensoku. Also participating are PTX-40A, Baby Head, G. Kaiser, Gigi, Gourai, Gustaff and Hornisse.)

Nitori: Whoa! This is quite fun!

Jin: Don't get excited, kid! This is only the beginning!
