* AdaptedOut: In ''[=GoLion=]'', Allura's counterpart had older siblings who were killed along with her parents. In ''Voltron'', Allura appears to be an only child. Yet ''someone'' had to have given birth to her niece Larmina.

'''''Voltron''''' is a CombiningMecha cartoon, created by Creator/WorldEventsProductions in 1984 with recycled clips from the Creator/{{Toei|Animation}} anime series ''Anime/{{GoLion}}'' and ''Anime/DairuggerXV''. ''Voltron'' is still considered [[SmallReferencePools ''the'' combining mecha anime]] in mainstream American pop culture,[[note]]A series of early 2000s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkODvs4grqE "Sprite" commercials]] pitted rappers against King Zarkon. Later, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFeFsUTr2JI theme song]] for 2011's Voltron Force was done by rapper and hip-hop producer Swizz Beats.[[/note]] but anime fans love it too. While changes to the anime were not as severe as those made to ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'', alterations were made to fit ''Anime/{{GoLion}}'' and ''Dairugger'' together.[[note]]For the knowledgeable: Zarkon (''Lion Voltron'''s main villain) is in this continuity a vassal of the Drule Empire (the bad guys of ''Vehicle Voltron''), the two short kids are now brothers, and the Galaxy Garrison of ''Dairugger'' has scenes cut into ''Lion Voltron'' in which they would talk about the situation, but never do anything about them, as there was no fight footage available that featured the conversing characters.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

''Voltron'' was one of ''the first'' television programs to be produced and broadcast in stereophonic sound. Around the time of the show's production, the Federal Communications Commission was in the process of approving stereo broadcasting, yet most programs and cartoons back then were still being broadcast in monaural sound. World Events Productions took notice of this and decided to make the stereo sound of the series a big selling point: almost every store selling stereo television sets in the mid 80's used ''Voltron'' as a highlight of what stereo sound could deliver versus mono.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Voltron itself is afFifteen person team.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In the first episodes, it is explained that Haggar took the form of a "Space Angel" and "defeated" Voltron by breaking him into five lions. Considering that the lions are pretty formidable individually, this is a pretty heavy "huh?"

** In ''The Third Dimension'', the colors of the characters' costumes matched their respective lion.

In the early 21st century, ''Voltron'' was [[{{Revival}} revived]] in the form of ''Voltron: The Third Dimension'', a completely CGI animated continuation of the ''Lion Voltron'' storyline, set a [[TimeSkip few years into the future relative to the original]], as there are important changes to the setting, but the character cast stay mainly the same. This sub-series tends to have a slightly darker, more mature take on its plots. In its second season, Voltron was redesigned as a "Cyber Stealth" model. (How exactly a robot that big could qualify as "stealth" even when painted black is anyone's guess.) There have also been several comic book series based on ''Lion Voltron'', including a series that basically retells the origins of the "Voltron Force" and their discovery of Voltron and the aforementioned Robotech/Voltron crossover. In addition, [[http://www.privateerpress.com Privateer Press]] released a Voltron [[TabletopGames tabletop miniature game]] based on its ''TabletopGame/{{Monsterpocalypse}}'' ruleset.

** A later robeast demonstrates the same genre savviness as the first robeast, by attacking the lions as they were forming Voltron. The lions themselves demonstrated genre savviness by erecting a protective force field to thwart the attack.
