Added DiffLines:

* {{Hyperaffixation}}: They are notorious and sometimes mocked by fans for using "Cyber-" as a prefix for absolutely everything they make or use, such as using Cyberguns and Cyberbombs to fight Cyberwars, and travelling in Cyberfleets.

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Almost certainly the TropeCodifier. The Mondasians were simply trying to keep themselves alive via cybernetics, at the cost of their emotions, and it worked. Then they decided everyone else had to be like them, and set about trying to take over the universe.

* CostumeEvolution: They are one of the most frequently redesigned of ''Doctor Who'' aliens, with major new design changes being introduced in "The Moonbase" (the original BodyHorror design replaced by the sleeker and more robotic look of later ones), "The Invasion" (the introduction of the "square-headed" or "earmuff" look), "Earthshock", and "The Rise of the Cybermen".

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: They took three stories to achieve their classic appearance. The Dalek props in the first story, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks The Daleks]]", lack the vertical panels attached to the "shoulder" section of their casings. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E2TheDalekInvasionOfEarth The Dalek Invasion of Earth]]", they have clunky looking satellite-style disc aerials on the backs of their casings, conceived [[AllThereInTheManual by the designers]] as a wireless power supply (the original Daleks had been unable to leave their city as they drew electrical life-support power from the floors). "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E8TheChase The Chase]]" added the final vertical panels, conceived as solar panels for power collection.


Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: The Cybermen in "The Tenth Planet" had a much more mixed human-robot appearance with heavy BodyHorror implications, while the later designs all look entirely or almost entirely (the 1980s design's chin window) robotic from the outside.

** Bonus for the Thals stating that the Kaleds used to be [[DichterUndDenker thinkers and scientists]] before the whole Skarosian mutual extermination war got started and the fanatics took over the place; It is to be noted, however, that "Genesis of the Daleks" itself adds a bit of Cold War subtext as well.

* CantUseStairs: A RunningGag.
** Subverted, however, in "Remembrance of the Daleks." The first episode cliffhanger was the Doctor fleeing up the stairs and thinking he was safe from the Dalek chasing him, only for it to start levitating up the stairs after him.
** Happens again in "Dalek", where Rose tells folks the pursuing Dalek won't be able to follow them up the stairs. The Dalek announces "EL-E-VATE!" and begins levitating up them. This was put in after one of the writers asked his girlfriend why she thought the Daleks made rather pathetic villains in the original show, and she told him how easy they were to foil.

RunningGag for many years. Later stories established the Daleks as capable of flight, once the special effects were up to portraying it. This was first seen in "Remembrance of the Daleks." The first episode cliffhanger was the Doctor fleeing up the stairs and thinking he was safe from the Dalek chasing him, only for it to start levitating up the stairs after him.

him. Happens again in "Dalek", the revived series episode that re-introduces the Daleks, where Rose tells folks the pursuing Dalek won't be able to follow them up the stairs. The Dalek announces "EL-E-VATE!" and begins levitating up them. This was put in after one of the writers asked his girlfriend why she thought the Daleks made rather pathetic villains in the original show, and she told him how easy they were to foil.

* OutsideContextVillain: The Doctor hadn't even heard of these things before they came after him (at least as far as he can remember).
