A droid is a robot, particularly the intelligent robots in the fictional Star Wars universe. Famous droids include R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Less famous (though still memorable) droids in the Star Wars saga include: 2-1B[?] medic, EV-9D9[?], Federation battle droid[?], IG-88[?], Imperial probe droid[?], Pit droid[?], Power droid (Gonk[?]), R5-D4[?], and Treadwell[?].

The word "droid" is a contraction of "android", but droids are not necessarily humanoid in appearance.
