8D8, also spelled Atedeeate, was an 8D smelter droid manufactured by the Verpine Roche hive.


8D8 in Jabba's Palace.

Originally designed for work in ore extraction facilities, 8D8 and other members of his series were strong, solid, and simple. At some point, he was modified to serve as a starship maintenance droid.

Following EV-9D9's migration to Jabba's Palace's on Tatooine in Cyborg Operations, 8D8 was completely reprogrammed to serve as a dedicated torturer of both droids and organics. Despite his programming, 8D8 retained a secret dislike for his sadistic taskmaster, EV-9D9.

Around 4 ABY, during the time that Rebels came to rescue Han Solo from Jabba, 8D8 was following EV-9D9's order by torturing a GNK power droid with a mechanical smelting device that featured a hot glowing iron.
