Villain Overview

Cybermen will remove fear. Cybermen will remove sex and class and color and creed. You will become identical, you will become like us.
~ CyberLeader One's broadcast.

The Cybermen are a race of cyborgs from Doctor Who, serving as one of the series' most recurring and dangerous antagonists, rivalling the Daleks in that regard. The Cybermen are created out of humans, or humaniod species, who need to survive no matter what, whether to preserve their dying species, a bid for immortality, or an attempt to improve all those around them. Various factions of Cybermen have orginated independently due to parallel evolution, but are essentially the same in core.  

Personality

All Cybermen are essentially living brains inside a robot body that robs them of emotion and free will. They are programmed to see themselves as a perfect life-form and work to "upgrade" others into more Cybermen, by force if needed. Any life-forms that resist or are incompatible with Cyber technology are to be "deleted".

Variants

Within the Doctor Who universe, the various era's of Cyberman design have been given titles to demonstrate their place in their evolution. The titles of the Classic series' incarnations are from David Bank's Cybermen guidebooks.

Mondasian Cybermen

The Mondasian Cybermen are the earliest version of the Cybermen created. These are seen in The Tenth Planet, World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls, and the audio Spare Parts. These Cybermen have cloth faces, bulky chest units with a laser attached to the unit, and spoke with a quavering, sing-song electric voice. They still reatained some traces of humanity, such as organic hands.

Faction and Telos Cybermen

The Cybermen in The Moonbase and Tomb of the Cybermen looked more mechanical than their predecessors, with plastic faces, and smaller chest units. They spoke in a buzzing monotone, and had the ability to shoot electricity. In The Wheel in Space, these Cybermen were similar in design, but with different faces, including the "tear-drop" motif for the first time. Cybermen said to be from Planet 14 inThe Invasion were designed to look stronger and more powerful.
