* Franchise/Transformers has a few fanfictions that feature characters which this happens to. [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4500810/1/Ghost-in-the-Machine One in particular]] has the ex-human [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome slap the person]] who was responsible for her transformation. Others are usually [[SelfInsertFic self-insert fanfictions]].

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'', we get Shadow Lady, a [[WhatIf a non-canon]] [[{{Brainwashed}} variation]] of [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]], [[ReforgedIntoAMinion forcibly turned into a]] [[{{Cyborg}} cyborg]] by Shadaloo. Before she was forcibly roboticized, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn. In retaliation, she was kidnapped, cyborgized, and experimented on for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into TheDragon for M. Bison. And unlike Shadow (a cyborgified Charlie Nash), who escaped shortly after being transformed, Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to her programming so she [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remains fully obedient]] to M. Bison at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, Shadow Lady shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShield deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]]. And all of this high-tech arsenal is built-in to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series. [[spoiler: In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories]], and joins forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]

Before she was [[UnwillingRoboticization forcibly roboticized, roboticized]], Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn. In retaliation, she was kidnapped, cyborgized, and experimented on for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol.

Bison Shadaloo at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul her formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it experienced no emotion apart from being a killing machine and serving as M. Bison's right-hand]]; and in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind, and serves as nothing but a weapon against Interpol. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a minion for Shadaloo wouldn't magically go away]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this is built-in to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series. Shadow Lady shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShield deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]].

[[spoiler: It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories]], memories as Chun-Li]], and joins join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo.

Some devices that inflict roboticization use {{nanomachines}}, resulting in [[NightmareFuel graphic scenes]] [[BodyHorror of the person being slowly mechanized]] [[PainfulTransformation while screaming in pain as they are being rebuilt into machines]]. May be resisted with HeroicWillpower. May lead to SheepInWolfsClothing. See also ManInTheMachine and HypnoTrinket. Compare and contrast BrainUploading.

* Androids 17 and 18 in ''Franchise/DragonBall'' were once normal teenagers before [[MadScientist Dr. Gero]] kidnapped them and turned them into powerful cyborgs, planting [[SelfDestructMechanism powerful bombs]] in them for good measure. As soon as they're switched on ([[GodzillaThreshold at Gero's reluctance]]), [[TheDogBitesBack they show him how thankful they are]].



** The Cybermen. The revival's Cybermen are the brainchild of gadget magnate [[GeniusCripple John Lumic]], who puts the technology forward as a way to overcome the ageing process and eliminate frailty. Those who know what it entails reject it as a sick idea, so he uses another of his gadgets to brainwash people into assembling at his cyber-conversion facilities. When he is left for dead by one of his underlings, however, he's not so keen:

** This is the Cybermen's ''modus operandi''. What started as the end result of people on a dying planet willing to throw away their humanity and all emotion to survive, now seeks to bolster its numbers by "upgrading" other life forms, whether they like it or not. To quote the Doctor, "it's just like being an organ donor, except you're alive, and... sort of... ''screaming''."

The revival's revival introduced a parallel breed of Cybermen are from an AlternateUniverse, as the brainchild of gadget magnate [[GeniusCripple John Lumic]], who puts the technology forward as a way to overcome the ageing process and eliminate frailty.
