ECO 35-2 (also known as Cyborg or Coton) is a video game character and main protagonist in the Rise of the Robots fighting game series created by Sean Naden and Kwan Lee. Cyborg was the result of an extremely advanced project to successfully fuse organic and inorganic components.
In video games
Coton is a cyborg with a human mind and organs, developed in secret by Electrocorp with a budget equivalent to that of the Leader Project. Despite his enemies often carrying and utilising weapons of some kind, Coton fights using only his fists, he has a thick armour plating covering his humanoid body from head to toe, and has been genetically engineered to be as fast and simultaneously powerful as possible. As stated, he has a human central nervous system and brain, no electrical components have been inserted into his body and so the EGO virus had no effect on him, allowing him to retain autonomy and take orders from the Electrocorp scientists to go after The Supervisor. All of his human organs were cloned from the CEO of Electrocorp, who in turn raised Coton as his own son, thus, when the CEO was slaughtered by rebellious robots in the beginning's of the robot mutiny of Metropolis 4, Coton wanted revenge for the murder of what he believed to be his father, thus giving him extra incentive and motive to pursue The Supervisor and destroy her.
In the sequels to the previous game, Cyborg was defeat and absorb by the Supervisor, destroying his body and copying his brain patterns to the rest of her robots. Electrocorp scientists, fearing that Coton had been defeated and that the Supervisor would now target the city, prepared a counter-virus based on EGO from the information Coton had earlier sent them. Coton used the distraction caused by the malfunctioning robots to upload his consciousness to another robot, and prepared to either escape the Electrocorp building or to attempt another attack on the Supervisor. Whether Coton is successful in either attempt. Also, a military-class version of the Cyborg named Necroborg with a different colour scheme, armour, a weaponry backpack, and wields lightning.
