Cybermen consist of an organic brain held inside a mechanical [[humanoid]] body. Several forms of Cybermen have been observed. Their metallic bodies are superhumanly strong, able to survive in hostile enviroments such as space, and armored enough to easily withstand [[Firearm|bullets]]. In regards to aging, cybermen are effectively immortal. They typically wield head- or wrist-mounted [[directed-energy weapon|energy weapons]] as well as being able to fatally electrocute enemies through their hands, although they can also make use of hand-held weaponry. Some Cybermen have demonstrated a vulnerability to gold, which clogs their respiration units; it is unclear whether this vulnerability still exists in all Cybermen.

Earlier models of Cybermen made use of small robots for various tasks, these were known as ''Cybermats''. More recently Cybermen have employed animalistic constructs known as Cybershades, although this might have only been as a stopgap messure. Some of the more primitive types of Cybermen have had more organic components.

Cybermen are genderless. To reproduce, Cybermen capture and forcibly convert humanoid sapients into additional Cybermen, a process they call "upgrading". This process subverts the minds of the converted beings to function in the standardized Cyberman model, devoid of emotion.
