Let's be real for a second– the events seen in the Star Wars films would have been absolute disasters without R2-D2. This little astromech is consistently the MVP of every film in one capacity or another. Considering he's owned by the most powerful Force-sensitive family in the galaxy and yet still manages to save their behinds from a myriad of troubles, it is very difficult for R2-D2 to function without flexing.

Artoo's biggest flexes include near-perpetual sass to his counterpart C-3PO as well as utilizing his various modifications and toolsets to get things done. Take a look below and vote up the flexes that remind you why R2-D2 is the backbone of Star Wars.
