* The Biodrones from ''VideoGame/{{X-Com}}: Terror from the Deep'' look an awful lot like brains mounted in flying saucers. [[spoiler:They are. Human brains, literally butchered into obedience, and fitted with a sonic weapon where their voice box used to be so they can scream their targets to death.]]

*** The process of "cyber-conversion" (and the state of existing as a Cyberman) is so painful that they have to have all emotions and pain receptors turned off. The most common way of defeating them is to find a way to turn their feelings (emotional and/or physical) back ''on'', which almost always leads to immediate Self-Termination
** The people on Satellite Five in "The Long Game" have ports in their heads to input information and process it. Adam, a temporary companion, gets one himself in an attempt to take detailed technical and historical data back to the "present" for personal financial gain, which is why The Doctor throws him out of the TARDIS. The Controller worked on the same principle, only that was her entire life.
