This is General Grievous:

Durasteel. Ceramic armorplast-plated duranium. Electro-drivers and crystal circuitry. Durasteel.

Within them: the remnants of a living being. He doesn't breathe. He doesn't eat. He cannot laugh, and he does not cry.

A lifetime ago he was an organic sentient being. A lifetime ago he had friends, a family, an occupation; a lifetime ago he had things to love, and things to fear. Now he has none of these. Instead, he has purpose. It's built into him.

He is built to intimidate. The resemblance to a human skeleton melded with limbs styled after the legendary Krath war droids is entirely intentional. It is a face and form born of childhood's infinite nightmares.

He is built to dominate. The ceramic armorplast plates protecting limbs and torso and face can stop a burst from a starfighter's laser cannon. Those indestructible arms are ten times stronger than human, and move with the blurring speed of electronic reflexes.

~ A description of General Grievous and his cybernetic enhancements.
Usually a brilliant scientist, sophisticated billionaire or superhuman being with advanced technology who usually wears a mechanical suit of armor to upgrade aspects of their bodies. It also includes Villains who have replaced body parts with mechanical replicas called Cyborgs (i.e. General Grievous, Darth Vader).

This often coincides with Gadgeteers but differed by the fact that Gadgeteers almost exclusively used their own inventions whilst Mechanically Modified beings may have utilized stolen technologies (i.e. Apocalypse) and were usually dependent upon them and without which they became severely weakened unlike Gadgeteers smart enough to survive without their "toys".
