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.
