A Cyborg is a hybrid human/robot with both organic and inorganic components. The term is a portmanteau of the words "cybernetic" and "organism".

In gynoid related fiction and media, a cyborg is typically a robot with both organic components in addition to machinery. More often than not, they are humans who died or were critically injured and fitted with cybernetic components, thus making them a cyborg.

It is a common misconception that cyborgs are another name for a robot, because some older films and TV shows have inaccurately portrayed androids or robots as cyborgs. In actuality, a cyborg is not 100% machine. It is part human, part machine.
