K-2S0 / Kaytoo quotes by Alan Tudyk from the Star Wars: Rogue One movie

The robot serves as part of the Jyn Erso's rogue group that aims to get their hands on the Death Stars 'plan's - the ones used by the Rebels to identify and exploit the weakness found as per the events of A New Hope.

K-2S0 delivers part 'robot awesomeness' and part comedy relief in a similar vein to BB-8 or the two other famous robots that turn up in Star Wars movies.

Alan Tudyk plays the Enforce Droid, K-250 in Rogue One. He's 8 foot tall and is usually addressed as 'Kaytoo'

Tudyk's persona fits this need quite well have demonstrated his comedy bona fides in his roles in Firefly, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Death at a Funeral.

He's also done a fair bit of prior voice over work, his roles as Mickey in Halo 3: ODST and Zootopia.

The look of K-2S0 is a 'classic' robot look with dark metal, bright eyes suggestive of The Iron Giant.

He wouldn't look out of place serving in Jabba's Palace.

The droid was originally an Imperial, and was reprogrammed by his 'mentor' Cassian Andor. Yet something didn’t quite take.“He’s not quite all there,” Tudyk said. “He speaks his mind and says things that could be unsettling. Very honest. If you know any old people, he’s like that.”

The pragmatic droid is an effective insertion agent, as he can blend in perfectly at Imperial installations and outposts.

K-2S0 quotes

To Jyn: 'The Captain says you are a friend. I will not kill you.'
Jyn relies 'Thanks!'

To the crew he is flying with on Rogue One 'There is a 97.6 percent chance of failure' - sounds like he's been having out with C3PO a bit much!

This next one is a bit weird. K-2SO appears to make a reference to the Friends television show:

To Jyn "I'll be there for you, the Captain said I had to".

"Did you know that wasn't me" to Jyn after she has just shot his own double following a tense fire fight. Jyn sheepishly replies 'of course'.

Having just slapped his Master Cassian Andors to distract Imperial troops, he mocks "There’s a fresh one if you mouth off again".

K-2SO: You’re letting her keep it? Would you like to know the probability of her using it against you? It’s high.
Captain Cassian Andor: Let’s get going.
K-2SO: It’s very high.

That thing conversation about the gun is quite clever because Jyn later surrenders the gun to K-2So and he effectively saves Jyn and Andor's lives by holding off the troopers.

When flying the U-Wing and having a hard time of it "There's a 26 percent chance of failure". Bodhi Rook then mentions he has no idea really where they are but they are close so Kay Too upgrades his prediction, "We'll now there's a 35 percent chance of failure". Bohdi says "I don't wanna know" to which K-2SO then says "I understand that".

"Congratulations, you're being rescued."

Jyn, Andor and our robot friend are surrounded by troopers and one of them mistakes K-2So for escorting the prisoners so he gets two clever lines to say "There's a fresh one if you mouth off again" "I am taking these prisoners to imprison them... in prison."

"There's a problem on the horizon. There is no horizon"

"I find that answer vague and unconvincing."

"You will die in the void of space"

To which the cheeky robot says "Not me. I can survive in space."


  1. Enjoyed his lines. Made me think of Marvin from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.

  2. He says "I'll be there for you, the Cassian said I had to". NOT "I'll be there for you, the Captain said I had to".
