Voltron Wiki
This article is about the super robot formed by five lions and defender of the universe as it appears in Voltron: Defender of the Universe-related interpretations. For a list of other meanings, see Voltron (disambiguation).

Lion Voltron (aka Voltron III and Voltron of the Far Universe) is a giant robot currently composed of five robot lions (Black , Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow) joined together.


Voltron had been defending planet Arus for many years. It is implied (from the narration) that Voltron was instrumental in the founding of the Galaxy Alliance. While Voltron must now form from the combining of the five Lions. Voltron was once a mecha, a sentient being of sorts before being separated into five robot Lions.

During a Doomite attack on planet Arus, the witch Haggar cast a powerful spell splitting Voltron into five Robot Lions. Keith and company made contact with the Castle of Lions and brought Voltron back into service.


Blazing Sword[]

Voltron's ultimate weapon, and his most formidable. The two hands touch each other and form a sword. This sword is often used to destroy robeasts, often by slicing them in half. Voltron's blazing sword apparently projects an invisible energy field around itself, and thus can cut through any substance known.

Spinning Laser Blades[]

Forms a spiky disc which he can throw at an enemy.

Lion Head Attack[]

Involves two or four of Voltron's appendages to lose their heads and go flying at the enemy.

Lion Torches[]

Fired from the mouths of the Red and Green Lions.

Sting Ray Missiles[]

Fired from the mouths of the Blue and Yellow Lions.

Ion Darts[]

Beams with tiny darts in them which fire from part of the head.

Eye Beams[]

Shoots destructive rays of energy from the eyes.

Electro-Force Cross[]

This cross emits from the one on the Arusian seal, which adorns Voltron's chest.

Lion Lariat[]

The Lion Lariat functions like a pair of nun-chucks that can deflect an assault from incoming projectiles.

Lion Saber[]

The Lion Saber is thrown like a javelin to disable Voltron's opponent.

Argon Force Field[]

Voltron creates a ball of energy which encases the robot in a sort of force field which can trap nearby enemies.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Voltron possesses a force field that protects it during the formation sequence.
  • This version of Voltron was originally created by Arusian scientists.
