|This article is about the version of the characters seen in Voltron: Legendary Defender. For a list of other meanings, see Space Mice (disambiguation).|
The Space Mice, or more simply the Mice, are a quartet of mice-like aliens hailing from planet Altea. Their
Platt is the largest member of the mouse family. He has yellow fur, with green fur on his ears, tail, and gut. He has a white patch over his eyes, and a sunny temperament.
Chulatt is the smallest mouse. He has pale blue fur, with medium blue fur on his ears and tail. His stomach is white, with a white oblong patch on his forehead. He seems perpetually timid and impish.
Plachu is the leanest mouse. He has sultry blue-green fur, with pink ears, and white fur on his stomach. He has the longest tail and a pointy jaw. He has red eyes and a hostile, cynical personality.
Chuchule is the final mouse. She has pale pink fur, with white fur on her stomach. She has almond-shaped red eyes, and a childlike, frivolous temperament.
Through a stroke of luck, the mice were able to escape destruction by entering Allura's cryo-pod and spending the next 10,000 years in suspended animation. This extended their lifespan, increased their intelligence, and formed a mental link between them and Allura. This enables her to communicate with them psychically; a connection they use to relay warnings and gossip. It was the mice who told Allura about Pidge disgusing herself as a boy, and about Lance's romantic feelings for her.
Their intelligence and diminutive size enables the mice to perform the fiddly mechanical tasks around the Castle of Lions which Hunk and Coran can't do. This skill was used to the best effect during the Paladins' Season 3 battle with Sendak, when the mice helped repair the Castle and later liberate it from Sendak and Haxus.
The mice have also shown proficiency at taking down combatants many times their size. They swarm an opponent as a team to disorientate them, and then bite exposed skin while using their speed and agility to evade capture. In Season 7, they help Coran eliminate guards and rescue the Paladins, Romelle, Shiro, and Krolia from Galra prison.
- According to the official website, with later clarification from an Easter promotion, the mice are named:
- Platt is the largest mouse with yellow and green fur.
- Chulatt is smallest mouse with blue fur and blue eyes.
- Plachu is the blue mouse with red eyes.
- Chuchule is the pink mouse with red eyes.
- This reflects the original Golion, where the largest father mouse was named Platt and the second largest, the mother, was Chuchule. It is unknown if the mice are related in the Legendary Defender series however.
