In the Universal Century timeline, Cyber Newtypes receive various physical and mental enhancements, including organ transplants, biotechnological modifications, and chemicals that increase their reaction speed and radiation resistance. They are also subjected to extensive hypnotic conditioning, in which their personalities and memories are manipulated to make them into more effective soldiers. However, this process has the unfortunate side effect of rendering the Cyber Newtypes mentally unstable, with some even having personality disorders.
In the After War timeline, the process that turn normal humans into Cyber Newtypes were not described. However, it is known that Cyber Newtypes suffer from 'Synapse Syndrome', where the signals from the brain get confused and cause extreme pain that can be life threatening.
