A long time ago they were called robots. That rather pedestrian term evolved into android, droid, cyborg, and artificial intelligence, among others. Plenty of movies have featured them in one fashion or another, and Unreality’s Madison cobbled together the ten best, with Blade Runner’s Roy Batty coming in at number 5.
Roy Batty, quite simply, is a bad, bad dude. As leader of the Nexus-6 replicants, Batty is a combat model used for military battles, and so his speed, strength, and combat skills are far beyond those of a human being. He also has a genius level intellect, which he employs to torment Deckard. He eventually shows empathy for Deckard, though, and Batty himself appears to be more human than the humans who sought out to have him destroyed.
