AJ is Blaze's 8-year old best friend and driver. As a technology expert, AJ is very smart and knows all about different machines and types of science, and how each one works. He is equipped with various gadgets, like his skywriting gloves which allow him to draw pictures in mid-air, and his Visor View in his helmet which he uses to see things faraway.
AJ, along with Blaze, has appeared in every episode of the show.
AJ is generally calm and collected. He is intuitive and rather intelligent when it comes to solving problems.
AJ is a human with light brown skin, dark brown hair and brown eyes. He wears a white, red and black racer outfit, with an optional red and black helmet. The upper part of his outfit has a flame symbol on it.
Powers and Abilities
AJ is Blaze's driver, and is shown to be an expert at driving. While Blaze can drive on his own, AJ usually assists in driving him, often helping him steer in the right direction or stop him by slamming on the brakes. AJ can also operate the major parts of the machines Blaze transforms into.
AJ has a special visor built into his helmet, which allows him to see things that no one else can. When he is about to deploy it, he says, “Switching to Visor View,” then presses a button on either side. The visor deploys, and various details can be shown, such as an object’s weight, a trajectory of where an object will land, the amount of force something has, and other scientific reasons. AJ’s Visor View can also see things from really far away, and underground as well.
Episodes where Visor View is used
Blaze of Glory (Check ramp trajectories and measure the weight of the pulley buckets)
AJ can manifest images out of energy and manipulate them like they were real so the audience has a visual of the subject. Most of the time they were used to help select a transformation. Since the animation update, AJ projects a digital diagram on his wrist computer or Blaze's monitor instead of the skywriting, which was only used on occasion.
Powers and abilities
Blaze is AJ's best friend. The two are shown to work together every episode, and would even show a friendly attitude with each other. AJ would either transform Blaze or come up with strategies with him, mostly during races in order to escape Crusher's cheats.
AJ always notices the inventions Crusher sends to stop him and Blaze, to sometimes even notice Crusher doing things to keep them from winning himself.
He and Gabby are friends. He promised to return her tools in Tool Duel after Crusher stole them while being followed by his best pal Pickle. He also trusts her to repair the monster machines.
The Monster Machines
He is friends with the Monster Machines and seems to have an overall good friendship with all of them (except Crusher)
