Cyber Mutations

Huh? Robot mutations? What are they for?
Can use for machines especially customised or modified ones. Also some AI and synthetics experiment on victims and perform partial cyborging operations on victims. Oldschool Dr who Cybermen might do stuff like this. There are nano tech mecha viruses that turn victims into combat machines also surviving from the apocalypse war.

11 mutation tables so far including next post so will do poll for which to do next...
Insectoid? Amphibian? Arachnid? Draconic? Fish?

Basic mutation here are powered by the body possibly from body heat but more powerful sub systems recharged daily or microfactories renew ammo or other components. Most cyborgs use food but major cyborgs have atomic fuel cells the same as ancient automobiles and houses. At this stage the cyborg oly needs food for remaining organic systems.
