I am creating a story where the protagonist is able to take the form of robots and using them. Its just like possessing them, he is able to move the robots and exploit every ability they had.
Now one thing is that in order to do so, the protagonist has to beat them first.
Image a D&D fight. If you win the fight against the robot, you are able to move the robot instead. In case the robot dies/is destroyed, you play with your normal character.
But there are a lot of ambiguities to this story. First of all, who is the main protagonist? Can he be human or something else? Maybe a robot, an android etc?
And how can he take the form after he beats them? I mean, arent they destroyed after he beats them?
Maybe he induces damage long enough in order to insert a virus that overrides their functions?
If that is true, he cannot be an operator in physical form, inhabiting them.
Maybe he does enough damage in order to expose an opening to the human operator, taking him out and becoming the operator himself? If that were true, he would also be exposed to enemy attacks.
So as you can see, I have a lot of "holes" creating this kind of story. Anyone can give me some hints?
