- "Gonk. Gonk."
- ―A GNK droid[src]
GNK power droids, also known as gonk droids, were an Industrial Automaton knockoff of the successful EG-6 power droid. GNK power droids were effectively power generators with legs and a very simple artificial intelligence so they could understand rudimentary commands. They were commonly found on under-developed worlds that did not have an expansive power grid, or in mobile military operations.
They often made a low honking noise that sounded like the word "gonk," resulting in the nickname gonk droid or simply gonk. This form of droidspeak was referred to as "Gonkian."
