And yes. Fanatical minions do whatever you say without question. Mindless minions do whatever you say without question... But ONLY what you say. Nothing else. They can't interpret things or come to their own conclusions. That's the difference.
Well if they can interpret things or come to their own conclusions then they have to have some sort of intellect.

Yes... That would be what I just said. But I also just said that the robot is NOT capable of interpreting things because it has no intellect. It has to be told exactly what to do.
As for being a battlesuit who doesn't want to be in the suit... It's more like if Iron Man could put his suit on autopilot. He's better in the suit, and in most cases he'd want to be in the suit because he has no combat ability outside of it, but in some situations he can't... But this character can have their suit on automated mode and give it orders via radio in situations where they can't reasonably wear it.
Being apart is worse for both, since the pilot has -no- combat ability out of the suit, and the suit has -no- intelligence, skill, and is a worse aim with no pilot, but it's an option.
