As the Jedi had nowhere else to go, it seemed as if the Yinchorri would be victorious. However, K'Kruhk and the Jedi knew they would live to see another day as the shape of the Yitheeth team's cruiser appeared in the sky. Cutting away one of the city's massive balloons, the Jedi used it to float to the safety of the ship's cabin. The two teams had also received word from the third Jedi team on Yinchorr; that they were under attack by Yinchorri forces and were without a ship as well.
K'Kruhk and the combined teams of Jedi prepared themselves for battle as they traveled to Yinchorr to rescue the remaining Jedi. Jumping ship in the middle of battle, K'Kruhk joined Lilit, Eeth Koth, Plo Koon, and Micah Giiett in the rescue mission of Mace Windu, Saesee Tiin, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Outnumbered many times over, K'Kruhk and the Jedi made a defiant stand against the Yinchorri and eventually met in the middle of the battlefield. Additionally, as K'Kruhk had saved Lilit's life on Yibikkoror, she was able to return the favor, saving K'Kruhk's life.
However, as she saved his life she was dealt a fatal blow by a Yinchorri warrior. With the pathway to the ship soon cleared, K'Kruhk gathered up his Master and carried her to the cruiser. The Jedi were able to make their way off planet, after having fought their way through so many Yinchorri warriors, and K'Kruhk's master was not the only casualty; Jedi Knight Theen Fida fell before the Yinchorri forces, and Jedi Master Micah Giiett sacrificed himself to allow the remaining Jedi time to return to the ship.
After leaving Yinchorr, K'Kruhk and the Jedi learned of a previously unknown planet in the Yinchorri system, Uhanayih, and joined a Republic peacekeeping force to penetrate the Yinchorri's defenses and make their way into the Yinchorri headquarters. There, K'Kruhk, the Jedi teams, and the Republic forces received surrender from the Yinchorri leaders. With the Yinchorri threat finally defused, K'Kruhk and the Jedi returned to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant where they honored their fallen comrades.
