The Omnidroid 08 (a.k.a. the Omnidroid v.X8, or the Omnidroid 8000) was the eighth prototype of the Omnidroids created by Syndrome as part of Operation Kronos. It is also the first Omnidroid to be fought in the film.
According to the technical specifications shown to Mr. Incredible by Mirage, the Omnidroid 08 has five bi-symmetrical, segmented legs with four-fingered grappling claws (that can be spun like buzzsaws) for pentilateral locomotion, bi-polar sensor clusters and revision 4.0 of the artificial intelligence programming. Its thick, near-impenetrable armor can also withstand the harsh, unforgiving temperatures of molten lava. Plus, it can collapse itself into a sphere and roll itself around for faster movement. Mirage had referred to this Omnidroid version as the "9000" even though "08" was visible on the robot's shell. This is the only Omnidroid to be shown to have had bright blue visors.
In the video game based on the film, the Omnidroid 08 is also depicted to fire lasers from its optic sensors, with a laser that leaves a fiery trail from the upper sensor, and a rapid-fire burst from the lower sensor. It could also collapse its sensor clusters and spin itself like a buzzsaw to try and cut the target with its claws.
The Omnidroid 08 was fought by Mr. Incredible when he had first come to Nomanisan Island, sent there in the pretense of a mission to deactivate the robot when it became rampant. When Mr. Incredible encountered large slash marks on a tree and a giant X-mark on the ground, the robot suddenly appears, advancing upon him. As the Omnidroid slashed at Mr. Incredible with its claw, he dodged it, but the claw caught him in the shoulder, causing a cut in his suit. As it slashed at him again, Mr. Incredible leaped over the Omnidroid, taking the robot by surprise, before throwing a punch that sent the robot flying into a tree. The Omnidroid got back up to its feet and charged toward Mr. Incredible, who leaped over the robot, but it calculated the arc of his jump, allowing it to swat him in mid-jump. Mr. Incredible slammed into another tree that toppled onto the Omnidroid, which rolled out of the way. Rolling into a sphere, it charged toward Mr. Incredible, prompting him to run for his life with the robot hot on his trail. He dove off a cliff and landed on a rocky outcrop, but had to jump out of the way of the Omnidroid, which landed on a lower outcrop. Mr. Incredible threw a boulder at the robot, but the Omnidroid, being a fast learner, threw numerous boulders back at the superhero. It then lunged towards him, but Mr. Incredible dove out of the way, causing the robot's limb to be lodged in a cliff. The Omnidroid pulled its limb out of the cliff and leaped high into the air, intent on crushing Mr. Incredible, who leaped out of the way and landed in the lava fields. The Omnidroid made an attempt to push Mr. Incredible into the lava as he tried to push back. Mr. Incredible then jerked to one side so that the Omnidroid fell into the lava and sank in.
Just as Mr. Incredible thought he had won, the Omnidroid suddenly bursted out of the lava. Spinning two of its claws like buzzsaws, it advanced onto Mr. Incredible, who tried to escape by jumping onto a chunk of rock that had broken free. But then the Omnidroid grabbed him by his feet with one of its claws and slammed him to the ground before grabbing his arms with another. It began to pull him apart, but then Mr. Incredible jack-knifed, ripping off the claw that held his arms. Mr. Incredible then went below the Omnidroid, making the robot use its lower sensor cluster to try and find him. Just as Mr. Incredible came into its view, he quickly pulled off the sensor cluster and tossed it into the lava before climbing into the innards of the superhero-killing robot. The Omnidroid punched holes in its own hull in a vain attempt to remove Mr. Incredible, causing damage to its bulk. Mr. Incredible then tossed away the upper sensor cluster, and whistled for the robot to try to grab him. He sank back inside the robot's interior and dodged as it brought in one of its remaining claws so that it tore out its own brainpan instead, which caused the robot to fall down, motionless.
