The Gonk Droids are an power droids carrying weapons. Such droids have served in Rebel Alliance forces.

They get their name in imitation of their simple vocalizations. There are many different models of power droid, most of them similar in appearance and habits as the well-known gonk. Power droids are common sights throughout the galaxy and little noticed despite their critical importance to both military and civilian life.
