cyborg
/ˈsʌɪbɔːɡ/
noun
a fictional or hypothetical person whose physical abilities are extended beyond normal human limitations by mechanical elements built into the body.

There's only one meaning for cyborg. Android refers to humanoid machines, but can include humanoid cyborgs. Clearly the starting point is organic, and the terminator isnt a cyborg because of the skin, but they have biological hearts, human of origin according to Kate. At least, the hybrids do. Assuming this is the case for the entire production line, they would be cyborgs, with some qualifying as androids too.

The thing is in context of dragonball, theres no problem with the robots competing, but Anilaza is made up of organic and purely mechanical beings, meaning at least cyborg by sum of parts
If we use the android saga and its associated characters to look at the different types.

The only true Cyborg in the bunch is Gero/#20 as his brain was placed in a robot body.

19, 16, 15 and 14 are all androids.

8,17,18 and 21 are what I call bioborgs, their upgrades are purely organic. The bomb and deactivation device in each of them don’t count because they have no functional benefit to their physiology.

Cell is a biot, an organic robot.

We don’t have enough info to say what 13 is.
erm, 17 and 18 are not purely organic where are you getting this? They even have off-switches.
And why are you excluding failsafes that are tech when that's literally part of what makes them them? Thats like saying Goku is a human because he looks like one and his tail doesn't count.

At any rate, they both have infinite energy reactors, a fuel cell basically. They also have data to tell them about the Z fighters and who to target, so something computer based is in there
17's bio in the technology section of Daizenshu 4:
Biotechnological-type Artificial Humans

01 ~ Artificial Human No. 8
A human-based artificial human developed early on by Doctor Gero. "Hacchan" is the pet name that Goku gave him. He has no big special features outside of his superhuman strength and strong build. He has a timid and gentle personality. Though he won't fight when he himself is in danger, once he's angered he unleashes his true power. All artificial humans after No. 8 were built for the purpose of defeating Goku.

02 ~ Artificial Human No. 18
A female type, rare among artificial humans. Judging her by her appearance will backfire severely. Being human-based, she has the ability to mother children. Though she wields less power than her twin brother No. 17, she is still enough of a warrior to overwhelm Super Saiyan Vegeta.

03 ~ Artificial Human No. 17
A cool-headed artificial human who enjoys battles as if they were games. As the twin brother of No. 18, he places more importance on power. Like No. 18, he is fundamentally human-based and only his organic matter has been restructured. The few mechanical parts that are used were for his emergency deactivation controller and self-destruction device. If the emergency deactivation controller is used on the powerful No. 17 and No. 18, they become unable to move their bodies.

As infinite models, No. 17 and No. 18's energy is limitless. Even if they discharge barriers or energy bullets, it isn't depleted.

Interesting, because when he attacks anilaza he mentions having an android core like Anilaza and thats how he knew where to hit him.
