Voltron Wiki

There are 124 episodes of Voltron: Defender of the Universe. They consist of 72 Lion Force episodes and 52 Vehicle Force episodes. These two sets of episodes share a very loosely-linked continuity, but plot wise have little to do with each other.

The first 52 Lion Force episodes are directly adapted from the Japanese series Beast King Golion. The remainder were new productions commissioned by WEP.

All 52 Vehicle Force episodes are directly adapted from the Japanese series Armored Fleet Dairugger.

Fleet of Doom, the crossover special featuring both teams, is a mix of re-used and commissioned new footage.

Title Airdate (y-m-d) Summary
Fleet of Doom


  1. The booklet included in Voltron Collection 8: Sea Team punctuates this as "The Drule's Surrender" and (in another place) "The Drules' Surrender". Grammatically, omitting the apostrophe altogether makes more sense and this is adopted here. A case could be made for the correctness of "Drules'" as well, but it seems unlikely.
