«I didn't know him well, but I know people used to tease him about that name. Like it was a bad omen.»
―BB-8[src]

V8-R was a masculine astromech droid who served in the Resistance Starfighter Corps during the Resistance's war against the First Order. Some members of the Resistance were superstitious about V8-R's name, and he was teased for it.[2]

During the Resistance's attack on Starkiller Base[2] in 34 ABY,[1] V8-R was in the astromech socket of the T-70 X-wing starfighter flown by Resistance pilot Furillo. Almost immediately into the battle, Furillo and V8-R were killed. Later, following the Battle of Crait, astromech droid BB-8 recounted his memories of V8-R and the Battle of Starkiller Base to fellow astromech R2-D2.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

V8-R was first mentioned in the comic book Poe Dameron 28, which was written by Charles Soule and published in 2018.[2]
