RD-08 is a futuristic pickup truck like vehicle that is part of the Racing Drones lineup. It is driven by RD-L1 and makes numerous appearances throughout the movies.


RD-08 Diecast

Storm Realm:

It's first appearance is in the Storm Realm. It turns around to attack the other drivers once the humans enter. It can be seen using the Fog Realm Accelecharger to navigate while backtracking. He then finds Monkey and launches an energy ball, destroying Rollin' Thunder. RD-L1 then enters a Hyperpod and catches up to the other drivers, where he then aids in running Kadeem off the road. The last time the car appears in the Storm Realm is when it challenges Kurt and Vert in the giant energy ball towards the end of the track. It uses the Monument Realm Accelecharger to pass them, and then navigates through the ball with ease. The car escapes the crash at the end and goes through the portal, winning the Accelecharger. RD-08 can be seen back at the Drone HQ, where RD-L1 is showcasing the Storm Realm Accelecharger.

Swamp Realm:

RD-08 appears again in the Swamp Realm. It appears at the beginning when Gelorum notifies RD-L1 that the Recon Drones are being disrupted by the swamp creatures, and that he's going to have to navigate on his own. The next time the car appears is when it is grabbed by a swamp claw. RD-L1 uses the Warp Realm Accelecharger to get his car safely back onto the track. The next appearance is with Taro and Vert, when RD-L1 uses the Warped Realm Accelecharger to pass them both. Taro then uses the spear on the front of his car to latch onto RD-08, where he then grabs and pulls the E-Brake, causing both cars to turn sideways and barrel roll along the track. Vert is forced to use the turbo jump jets on his car to get over both cars, or else he would've crashed. The last time RD-08 appears in the Swamp Realm was at the end, where it is engulfed in vines and pulled off of the track. RD-08 is destroyed in the realm, along with RD-L1, when he is ripped apart by a Swamp Beast.

Cavern Realm:

RD-08 makes a brief appearance in the Cavern Realm. This insists that the car must have been rebuilt in the time between the Swamp Realm and the Cavern Realm. The car is shown inside of the Drone Hyperpod chasing Wylde and smashing through stalactites. Because of the size of the hyperpod RD-08 was not able to make the turn and flew off of the track and crashed into cave wall.

Lava Realm:

RD-08 made a tiny appearance in the end of the Lava Realm, it was shown going through the portal to win the Accelecharger. This insists that it was rebuilt in the time between the Cavern Realm and the Lava Realm.

Ruins Realm:

While RD-08 is not seen driving in the Ruins Realm, it appears in the flashback towards the end of the minisode, appearing in both the Storm and Ice Realms. RD-05 is seen driving in the Ice Realm minisode, implying that possibly both RD-08 and RD-05 could have driven in the Ice Realm.
