Roboticization is a subject that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. 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. Despite the loss of free will, Roboticized subjects appear to retain some personality elements and memories of their former persona. Whether it is possible to restore the roboticized subjects free will while the bodies remain robotic is unknown.
