Something old , something new and something blue (well some host armor coudl be blue). Tell me what do you think! :D

Probing Tongue: The long (10ft/3m) tongue had a small ball on its tip, that unwrap into tiny little tendrils. These are super sensible feelers, able to detect even the slightest electron movement and translate it if possible into a coherent data to the brain. In simple word probing inside a person nose or inside an active robot’s head could allow a deep probe for recent events.
Limit: the tongue can scan for anything happened in latest 6 hours. The probing is highly invasive and does 2d6 hit point/MDC damage. The victim had to be restrained somehow
Prerequisite: Prehensile tongue that is replaced by the probing tongue
BIO-E Cost: 10 points

Razor Tongue: The tongue has sharp edges, like a razor and a pointed tip and is coated in strong acid saliva. This allow it to be used as unexpected and deadly weapon.
MDC and Length: same as prehensile tongue
Mega Damage: 2d8+2 plus the acid saliva continue to do 2d4 damage for other 1d6 melee round
Tongue Bonuses: +1 attack per melee with the tongue
Limit: The sense of taste is reduced by 20%
Prerequisite: Prehensile tongue that is upgraded to Razor
BIO-E Cost: 15

Power Arms: A pair of hyper muscular hands and arms, grotesquely big, as thick a tree trunk. The hands double the size than normal. These massive arms have more hit power and are able to lift greater weights. Ideal for Heavy workers and fighters
Bonus: +6 to punch damage, lift(not carry) 100% more than normal, carry 50% more weight than usual ,+1d6x10 M.D.C. to both power arms
Side Effect: The fingers and hand are not too good for fine works, -5% penalty to all skill that require fine manipulation
Prerequisite: Elongated arms that is upgraded to Power Arms.
BIO-E: 15

Strengthened Bones: The bones are hardened by increasing calcium density and lacing them with super carbon fibers. This make the bones surprisingly hard and yet flexible, unbreakable under most circumstance.
Bonus: the bones break only if suffer more than 70 MDC in a single blow/impact, +2 to roll with punch fall impact
Bio-E cost: 20

Hollow Bones: Much like bird the bones are hollow and ultra light, but really thought. This reduce overall weight and allow fast and agile movements
Bonus: add + 10 to Spd, +1d6 to PP and Leap 10ft higher and farther , reduce weight by 50lb
Side Effect: Reduce M.D.C. by 25% , Max PS is 22
Bio-E cost: 15

Built For Speed: Body is long ,sleek and slender, with an highly flexible spine designed for quick start, high impact running, and quick turns. The entire body is tailored for more aerodynamic configuration. Increase Speed attribute(running speed) by four times, +3 roll with punch/fall or impact, and +1 to dodge. Can swim and climb at half his running speed
Bio-E cost: 25

Massive Build: Huge, Hulking muscle-bound body and/or barrel chested, probably with a disproportioned small head. The Biotic/Gorehound is 4d6x10% larger and heavier than normal.
Bonus: +1d8x10+10 to M.D.C., +1d4 to P.S.
Side Effect: Fingers are large and thick, so there is a –15% skill penalty on skills that requires a delicate touch or small, thin fingers, but they also add 1d6 to punching hand to hand damage
Bio-E cost: 60( generally not suitable for Host armors , although some like a huge and heavy host armor)

Temperature regulation sail: This is a fin like structure running down form the head along the spine. The fin act like a natural solar panel , allowing to hold the temperature constant, feel comfortable in any temperature between the zero absolute to 130 degree Fahrenheit .
Bonus: +4 to save vs. temperature related illness and attacks
Bio-E cost: 10

Additional Mouth: Just an additional mouth located somewhere on the body. This mouth can bite, taste or even talk.
Bio-E cost: 5 per mouth

Inner Mouth: A small, extendible mouth is located inside the mouth, in the place of the tongue. The inner-mouth extends up to one food (0.3 m), and shoots out at high speed. The inner-mouth can chew and swallow like a normal mouth. Extending the inner-mouth into an enemy does 3d4 damage, while a bite with the mouth’s small but incredible sharp teeth deals 1d8 damage per melee.(chomp chomp chomp).
Bio-E cost: 10
Prerequisite: Prehensile tongue

Stretch Jaw: The jaw can unhinge, like a snake, to stretch and open three times wider than normal. The throat muscle are also very flexible, allowing a normal human sized being to swallow something like the size of an ostrich egg whole, without ill effect.
Add +3 to bite damage
Bio-E cost: 5

Legs: Tentacles : the legs are replaced by eight octopus-like tentacles with a reach of 12ft(3.6 m)
These reduced running speed by half, but enable to climb like a monkey and swing from trees or similar structures at double his normal running speed and he is +20% to climb, + 10% to swim(or base swimming skill of 45%) and + 10% to acrobatics skills
M.D.C. of modified lower body:1d6x10+20
M.D.C. of the tentacles: 1d4x10+10 each
Bio-E Cost: 35; spending additional 20 Bio-E points for each pair of tentacles you can use them in battle adding +1 attack per melee for pair.

Enhanced Agility and Physical dexterity: The maximum PP for Gorehounds and Biotics is 35
Warmounts can have to 50. Host armors cannot get this enhancement because this will snap most of the pilot own muscle and bones(ouch!)
Bio-E cost: 10 per each PP points beyond the starting P.P. attribute, plus spending 30 Bio-E points it is possible to get +1 to autododge(dodging without spending an action)

Legs: Dolphin tail : Much like the Serpentine Lower body, lower body, hips, legs and feet are replaced with a dolphin(or fish) like body and tail, giving a mermaid look. This is a very specialized features, because is of little use on dry land. Actually is rather a penalty when not in water , Spd and PP are reduced by 60% , halve normal attack bonuses and get no initiative. Of course in water is another story.
Size: Add +1d4+6 to the Armor’s overall length
Bonuses: +2 to host armor P.S., +3 to P.P. while swimming, +20% to Swim skill(or base swimming skill of 60%), add +1d6x10+30 Mph to swimming speed, +1d4x10 to Main Body M.D.C.,+ 3 to autododge while swimming(making sharp turns while swimming at full speed) , + 1 to initiative, leap 20 ft above water, +15% Prowling underwater, increase depth tolerance by 2000ft.
Mega Damage: 1d6 for a Tail whip, full speed ram does 2d6 +1 for each 20 mph of speed

Bio-E cost: 10 per growth step, for a max of 30 Bio-E

Throat Sonic Blaster: the vocal cords are modified to allow the show of high powerful sonic blast. This is generally high pitched shriek, a sonic wave that hit like a cannon ball, and damage matter to molecular level.
Damage: 1d8+2 Mega-damage, plus human sized target had 01-45% likelihood to be knocked to the ground, losing initiative and two melee actions
Range: 100ft for additional 5 bio-e can hit with a 12ft wide cone that travel for 20ft
Bio-E cost: 15 + 5 bio-e for a wave effect

Amplified Biological Clock time: The Brain is modified to react better, accelerating the perception and enhancing its processing speed ,placing the mind in a sort of semi-controlled trance where everything seem to move slower and you are aware of everything that surround you.
Prerequisite: Enhanced neurological Connection, must have a centralized brain
Bonuses: +3 to initiative, +1 to strike and parry, +2 to autododge(doge without suing an action), increase running speed by 1d4x10%, +1 attack per melee, +3 to roll with punch fall or impact
Bio-E cost: 30

Turtle Shell: The body is encased in a very hard shell, like that of the turtle. The shell is heavily armored and does reduce damage suffered in a melee round by 20 points, but is also very awkward and add a penalty of –10% to Acrobatics, Prowl, and all skills that require extreme dexterity
M.D.C: +100
Prerequisite: Horned defense
Bio-E cost: 25

Die hard: The nervous terminations are reduced, and most vital organs are reinforced. All this to allow the Biotics/Gorehound can fight up to PE attribute x 3 below zero M.D.C. before collapsing and even after than they still are alive for 1d4 minutes before dying, in addition they are impervious to pain
Bonuses:+20% to save vs. coma death, +2 to all saving throws, immune to pain
Bio-E cost: 20


Additional pair of limbs usable as both arms and legs: Placed in the midsection of the body can be used as arms and hands, adding one action per melee, or as additional legs increasing running speed by 20 +2d6 Mph
Prerequisite: a pair of insect limbs that is upgraded in this way
Bio-E cost: 15

Tentacle Neck: The neck is elongated and elastic, like a snake. This add 3ft to overall height and an additional attack per melee with head butt only. The head and neck is very flexible, can turn 180 g° and is +2 to dodge and + 3 to entangle/choke opponents.
Bio-E cost: 10


Experimental Enhancement Features :This are still in field testing and often illegal

Back-up brain: The Biotic/gorehound does have another brain that work as back up unit, in case the main brain got damaged. This second brain, while keep track of all memories is smaller and not as fast as the main one, so when the main brain is gone you feel like your mind is somehow sluggish in response. Generally is a safety mechanism to reach the nearest human haven and get the head healed back..
Bonus: +4 to save vs. coma/death
Penalties: the backup brain is –4 IQ and –2 ME
Side Effect: when the head is healed there is a risk for the Biotic to develop even further insanities
Requirements: Dislocated Brain
Bio-E cost: 30

Barbed wire web: weird, there aren’t better word to define this enhancement. Altering the structure of organic web-spinners cause the formation of a different recipe of the web itself. The web form some small crystallization along its line, making it in all facts a barbed wire web.
Mega-Damage: being stuck in the web inflict 1d4 mega-damage per melee
M.D.C.: increase M.D.C. of the web by 2d6 M.D.C.
Requirements: Spinnerets and Webbing
Bio-E cost: 10

Rolling Ball: The Splicer’s armor allow him to coil into a perfect ball, like an Armadillo. If this was all then this bio enhancement would not be worth the expense, but luckily is not just that. The body also carry a series of small pods of shifting mass that allow the Spicer to roll at considerable speed. Like a giant wheel or better ball.
M.D.C.: add +80 to M.D.C, +20 when coiled
Bonus: +4 to roll vs. punch, fall or impact
Rolling Speed: 2d6x10 Mph , could accomplish a ramming attack doing 3d8 Mega damage plus 10 per 20 mph of speed
Requirements: Reinforced exoskeleton
Bio-E cost: 20

Dislocated brain: Much like in insects, the brain of the biotic/gorehound is not in the head, that is now just a sensory and feeding organ, but located in the chest or abdomen. The Torso is slightly more developed, bigger, than normal while the head is slightly flat. The main advantage is that one can survive beheading, although you are pretty much blinded and unable to feed afterward.
Bonus:+ 40 M.D.C. to main body
Bio-E cost: 15

Super Neurological Attunement (dreadguards and roughnecks only): The Host armor is modified with a series of genetic surgery operations that increase the level of symbiosis between armor and pilot. This result in an great increment of performance , and add even the amazingly ability to pilot and control the armor even when nor wearing it! Sadly there is the side effect that one always feel your host armor , is like you never wear it off and more that most Splicers is hard distinguish where and when the Host Armor end and the pilot begin, causing a series of mental dysfunction
Bonus:+ 2 attack per melee, +2 to initiative, +3 to strike, Autododge, +3 to roll vs. punch, fall or impact, +10% to save vs. coma/death, can control his host armor to 1 mile per level of experience
Requirements: Enhanced Neurological Connections.
Side Effects: roll for one biotics insanity
Bio-E cost: 25

Configuration morphing: VERY, VERY experimental, only few Dredguards host armor and some Biotics(test lab subjects) do exist with such enhancement in the entire world. In few words allow Splicer to change their shape in a limited way. The humanoid structure cannot be changed but some of the Biological Enhancements can. Re-roll half of the bio-e of the host armor and choose new features for the new configuration. Example could be a combat configuration and a flight configuration, or a close combat configuration and a blaster configuration. It took one melee to change from a configuration to another
Bio-E cost: 30 – in theory one could buy this enhancement many time but apart from the high price more than one additional configuration is physically taxing and reduce the life span by 1d8x10%!

Baron does Barbed wire web have a Lithovore metabolism requirement as well? Seems like it almost needs that to balance it out and create a storyline related reason for it.

Also Built For Speed worries me a little because it doesn't have a decrease of MDC or something like that to balance it out. I'd almost give it the same restrictions of Hollow Bones. When you play tested this didn't it give the units that took it a massive boost?

Well is a power converted from PU2(the origin of 90% of Splicer).
Being built for speed does not mean you're weaker. Rather the opposite, you've to be tough and with a solid musculature to run at fast pace. But if you think a more heavy price should be added
Here a possible idea.
Built For Speed:
Bio-E cost: 25
Requirements: Increased Metabolic Rate
Side effect: reduce overall MDC by 10%, cannot have mounted weapons that ruin aerodinamic , like a gore cannon, casting gun and so on. Only small and sleek weapons,like claws, combat spurs, forearm blades, light cells, electrical weapon, bio-rocker are possibles but only four can be built before ruining the aerodimanics of the body. And about this issue, the look become very peculiar with even the head shape assuming a more narrowe and flat outlook.
Note: Built For Speed can be combined with flight, but the flight speed bonus is only of 50% and not 400%

As for barbed wire. Is experimental, so not eveyrone could get it. But doesn't need a particular diet. Perhaps drinking more water and eating more salt, but nothing more than this. The process is similar to the resin production.

And wait for biotic models( much like cyborg models, only biotics, they got some more features and some odd side effect and look)

That's a ....
akkk I kannot believe there is someone that does not know Powers Unlimited 2, sourcebook for Heroes Unlimited written by Carmen Bellaire, before splicer. His ideas for bio-technology are started there. ! How in name of Xy this could be!

Oh that's why. I've never liked superhero stuff, not my thing. I don't think I own one of those books.

Maybe if I said it slower, it would be easier for you to understand???

It's hard to imagine giving up the ability to have psionics for a handful of lame "super" powers that are easily reproduced by technology or magic. It's just another one of those cute Rifts supplement games that Palladium did to keep up with Gurps.

Do you know that there is magic and psionic in HU aren't you. Anyway , you're asking to be smithed to dust ain't you? After all HU is the basis of most recent palladium stuff. Land of Chaos? Based on HU Chaos Earth? Based on HU SPlicer? is HU without psionic and magic and without the invulnerability superpower(but give it time ). We can say that HU is the base for making palladium games . Is agreat game, one of the best that come out from Palladium Books. And sell way much more that Splicer.
Now I prefer you not to be so.....well so.
I was in a joking funny tone. You did not sounded nor joking nor funny.
You take things too seriously, as msot people in internet. Cool donw dude. 8)
Is better for you.

I was kidding actually, I guess I bit to sarcastic. :P Sorry about that.

No I didn't know that there was magic and psionics in the game, because my only exposure to HU is in the Rifts Conversion book. There was no mention of that in there, so I didn't know about it. I'll take your word that it's important and has made some positive contribution to the Palladium Universe.

PU2 is a great book imho.

Yeah Heroes Unlimited outdates RIFTS by 6 years. Rifts is the new kid on the block compaired to HU. Splicers is the Baby of PB at the moment.

"Not the Mommy...AGAIN!! I'm the Splicers, Gotta love me."

I perfer HU2 way of handleing Power Catagories. To a degree. Its more focused than Rifts and its OCC methods.

Your new enhancements reminded me of this. There are a couple more but I will have to find them.

I think my bio-modification slightly predate that particula iczer power. But again we both start from HU, we have similart fonts and likewise minds(albeit iczer is less lazy) so is not a surprise that we got similar ideas :-D
Saldy no Lazarus organ won't offset this penalty, as is caused by the inherent stress that the biomodification cause on the body.

All great upgrades. The ones I just love are Back-up brain & Dislocated brain. I hate just leaving a good brain out in the open on a pair of shoulders.

I did not say you copied or used Battleshape to create Configuration morphing, but can it be used to make new configurations for the enhancement.

I did not say you copied or used Battleshape to create Configuration morphing, but can it be used to make new configurations for the enhancement.


Never Said that you did. Only that we got similar ideas. But yes, I think it could be possible. :D

Slime rockets!
Basically a LARGE spout that shoots out LARGE amounts of slime to entangle robots/foes & make them easier to kill.

Slimemold Jello'o'doom....pack the warhead full of quick-maturating slimemold spores that grow explosively(maybe less effective in arid conditions and more potent in humid climes, with the slime molds drawing water bulk from the atmosphere?).

Sorry about the double posting...

Experiment Type-El Advanced Lazarus Gland: This advancement of the Lazarus Gland takes regrowth to a new level. Whenever the Host Armor regenerates, this gland makes it stronger. Regeneration takes 3D6 days to grow, as the increase in the armor takes longer. After the growth period, the host armor emerges, retaining all bonuses, enhancements, and MDC. NO REDUCTIONS. In addition, the host armor gains 1D6X10 MDC to the main body, and 1D6 MDC to the rest. The Host Armor’s PS increases by 1, height is increased by 3 in, weight increases 100 lbs, and the owner will find that the armor has up to 50 Bio-E worth of enhancements that the Armor chooses, so that it will be harder to defeat the same way. For example, if an opponent destroyed the host armor with fire, the host armor will regenerate with resistance to heat. Also, the armor has the Doomsday Gland until complete evaporation. After each regeneration, if this is not a host armor, there is a cumulative 1% chance that the being changes one step in alignment, from Principled->Scrupulous->Unprincipled->Anarchist->
;Aberrant->Miscreant->Diabolic. After one alignment step change, the chance is reset. Also, there is a cumulative 2% chance to develop insanities, usually having to do with the multiple deaths, and hatred of things that kill it.
Bio-E Cost: 100
Prerequisite: Lazarus Gland, Modified Pituitary Glandx3

Comment: This calls for a celebration!! Cheese for everyone!!
Here are some useful Bio-enhancements I dreamed up:

Biological Defenses

Bone Buckler: The Host Armor develops a heavy bone plate on the forearm that is used to defend against melee attacks. The buckler occupies the entire right or left forearm and no other bio-weapons can be grown on that limb.
M.D.C.: Of the shield is 20, and does not benefit from any M.D.C. increases by other biological defenses.
Bonuses: +1 to parry melee attacks.
Penalties: -10% to manual dexterity tasks requiring both hands.
Bio-E Cost: 5 points.
Prerequisite: None.

Bone Shield: The upgraded bone buckler is a superior barrier against attack, but badly inhibits fine motor skills requiring both hands. This shield is equivalent to a kite shield in coverage and extends eight inches beyond the wrist and elbow.
M.D.C.: The shield’s value is 40, as the buckler it does not benefit from other M.D.C. enhancements.
Bonuses: +2 to parry melee attacks and conventional missiles (arrows, normal bullets, rocket and missiles).
Penalties: -25% to tasks needing both hands.
Bio-E Cost: 10 points.
Prerequisite: 1 Bone Buckler, which grows into the Bone Shield.

Comment: This calls for a celebration!! Cheese for everyone!!
And some more:

Heavy Bone Shield: This final upgrade of the Bone Buckler is composed of three heavy bone plates covering the shoulder, upper arm, and the entire lower arm, extending two feet beyond the hand. The shield is so massive and responsive it can even be used to shield one other man-sized character, without compromising the host armor’s own defense.
In addition to the massive size and density of the shield the muscles to move it have been heavily enhanced, and can even respond without penalty to energy weapon attacks. On the downside manual tasks that need both hands are impossible to perform.
M.D.C.: The Shield has 80 M.D.C., and when used in conjunction with the Horned Defense sees its value double to 160 M.D.C.
Bonuses: +4 to parry all attacks including energy weapons.
Penalties: All tasks relating to manual dexterity requiring both hands are impossible to perform. (This disadvantage is negated by the extra arms feature.)
Bio-E Cost: 20 points.
Prerequisite: 1 Bone Shield that evolves into a Heavy Bone Shield.

Acid Injector Defense: This is an upgrade for the Horned Defense, the defense is primarily unchanged. However any attacker rolling less than 12 is not only impaled upon one of the horns taking the usual 2D10, but is also injected with a highly caustic and persistent molecular acid inflicting 1D8 M.D. per round for 4D4 rounds. This acid also functions as a neuro-toxin against biological structures, causing total paralysis of the muscles in 1D4 rounds, the paralysis persists for ten minutes, but is not fatal or life-threatening on it’s own.
Mega-Damage: as noted above and in the Horned Defense entry.
Bio-E Cost: 40 Points.
Prerequisite: Horned Defense, which is retained with all features, and Acid Blood, also retained with all features.

And yet more:

Anatomical & Physiological Features

Organic Ramjet Accelerators: Are similar in principle to Organic Thrusters but serve a very different purpose. Bio-ramjets are used primarily to accelerate kicks and punches to near-supersonic speeds, vastly improving attack damage and penetration.
Mega-Damage: Doubles base kick and punch damage of the Host Armor.
Bonuses: Increases base underwater maneuverability, +1 to dodge underwater.
Bio-E Cost: 20 points.
Prerequisite: None.

Offensive Bio-Weapons

Bone Lance: this is an upgrade for the bone blade, turning an existing blade into a ten-foot long tapering lance for puncturing armor and knocking down opponents. Very popular among Outriders, uncommon elsewhere.
M.D.C.: of the lance is 2D6x10+20.
Mega-Damage & Bio-E Cost: 20 per bone blade converted, base damage is doubled from 4D6 up through 2D6x10, inflicts triple damage on a critical.
Bonuses: as bone blade with the following modifications; no bonus to parry or disarm, no bonus to pull punch, 90% knockdown against human-sized opponents or 50% knockdown against walker-type ‘bots or other humanoid opponents up to 20’ tall.
Prerequisite: 1 bone blade that evolves into the lance.

And even more:

Ranged Bio-Weapons

Sonic Weapons: Vocal cords and resonance chambers are grown that enable the Host Armor to emit a destructive modulated pulse of sound that causes massive damage.

Shriek:
Mega-Damage: 1D4x10.
Maximum Effective Range: 20’ cone.
Rate of Fire: Each blast counts as a single attack.
Payload: Effectively unlimited.
Bonus: +2 to strike as an area effect weapon
Bio-E Cost: 10
Prerequisite: none

Banshee Wail:
Mega-Damage: 3D4x10 and causes massive hemorrhaging in “soft” targets (save vs. Coma/Death).
Maximum Effective Range: 100’ cone.
Rate of Fire: Single per melee, counts as two attacks.
Payload: effectively unlimited
Bonus: +5 to strike as an area effect weapon.
Bio-E Cost: 30
Prerequisite: Shriek sonic ability that evolves into the Banshee Wail.

Once again, Cracked.com is doing the work for you guys:

6 Most Bad@$$ Murder Weapons in the Animal Kingdom

The Mantis Shrimp's Fists of Death
In fact, the punch of the mantis shrimp is so fast, it actually lowers the pressure of the water in its path which--conveniently for a badass sea-ninja who fancies some pre-cooked crab--boils the water around the punch. Steven Seagal's probably only done that once or twice at best.

The Trap-Jaw Ant's... Trap Jaw
The speed of their jaw is useful for catching food and also facilitates one of the most incredible evasive maneuvers, or party tricks, in nature. In a tight spot the ant can bite at the ground and use it to jump incredible distances, the human equivalent of which would be the ability to snap into a Slim Jim with such ferocity it rocketed you over a four-story building.

The Giant Amazonian Centipede's Ninja Skills
The giant amazonian centipede has 42 murderous legs, but it only uses ten of these to keep hold while it dangles, catches and eats. So to further enhance the captive flying fat guy scenario, imagine doing the whole thing while hanging from the ceiling with only two toes.

Pistol Shrimp's Laser Claw
Wait, it gets weirder. The sheer force of the bubble collapse means it reaches temperatures up to 18,000 degrees Fahrenheit, a.k.a. hotter than the surface of the f***ing sun.

The Palm Salamander's 18,000-Watt Tongue
he strongest muscle in the human body (the quadriceps) can put out about 100 watts of power. The salamander's tongue can produce 18,000 watts. If your thighs were a generator they could barely power a light bulb while our amphibious friend would be running two five-ton air conditioning units. Your thighs officially suck.

The Jellyfish's Supersonic Stingers
The nematocyst cell fires the harpoon at such a high speed, the force of the acceleration equals 1,000,000 times the force of gravity. An astronaut will typically encounter four to five Gs during takeoff, which means if you put a jellyfish in the space shuttle, and it fired its stingers at the moment of takeoff, it would travel back in time [citation needed].

Body expantion- on cammand yuo can make your blow up like a puffer fish. Great for grappling when on buddy can get a propper grip on you.

Body contraction- kind of the reverse of the above. Good for fitting into small places, and thoughing off in enemy on the true size of there opponant.

If you stat it, they will spend Bio-E on it.

I think these should be found under the Anatomical and Physiological Features.

Body Expantion
Bio-E 15 to increase your size by 50%
Super Expantion
Bio-E 20 to increase your size by 100%

Body Contraction
Bio-E 12 to decrease your size by 20%
Super Contraction
Bio-E 20 to decrease your size by 50%


I also feel that both enhancements would work well with the slime coating,and Quill Defence.

Hmmm....maybe more like an electro-conductive living battery jelly-slime that distorts a 'bot's internal electrical systems(via a powerful electromagnetic field around it) causing it to lose program-integrity and maybe even short out...or some other technobabble... :D
