Black Beard the Pirate being subjugated to roboticization.

Roboticization is a subject that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is the process utilized by Dr. Ivo Robotnik by which an organic creature is converted into a robotic being. This can be accomplished with the Robot-Transmogrifier or the mean bean-streaming machine.

Physically speaking, the process of Roboticization converts living tissue into machinery: all body parts are transformed into mechanical equivalents. No means of reversing the Roboticization effect have been revealed. Roboticized subjects will lose their free will as a result of roboticization, becoming obedient automatons subservient to Dr. Ivo Robotnik.[1][2] Despite the loss of free will, Roboticized subjects appear to retain some personality elements and memories of their former persona.[1] Whether it is possible to restore the roboticized subjects free will while the bodies remain robotic is unknown.
