Mystique’s DNA was also used in the Sentinels because of which they can change and adapt to any combat situation. The Sentinels can hunt mutants and track them by detecting their signature X-Gene. They are encased in metal and are controlled by Magneto which is their weak point.
Baymax was designed as a medical assistance robot. He becomes the protector and partner of a young inventor and helps in bringing down a mad kabuki-mask-wearing scientist. He has a massive capacity for data storage and information processing. He has some custom armor that protects his inflatable vinyl body that also gives him the power of rocket flight.

Terminatrix has an indestructible endoskeleton that is protected by ceramic-titanium and carbon nano-fiber armor. She has mimetic poly-alloy skin made of liquid metal that can be used for shapeshifting. She has plasma cannon, a flamethrower, and a bunch of random guns in her body. Overheating along with skeletal crushing and hydrogen fuel cell explosions at close range in confined spaces can cause damage to her.
8. Astro Boy

Astro Boy appears as a young child but he can match wits and brawn with the powerful robotic enemies who terrorize Metro City.

He defends Metro City against a huge destruction machine and is almost killed when he sacrifices himself to destroy it.

The T-101 was created by Cyberdyne Systems. It is a T-800 Heavy Combat Model robot that looks like a terrifying chrome skeleton robot. It has synthetic skin and appears like a giant and angry Austrian bodybuilder. Compared to T-800 killbots, this one can be sent back in time because of its outer layer made of techno-organic skin.
