* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Keith and Allura's relationship as are they the OfficialCouple or merely a case of ImpliedLoveInterest? There is some DependingOnTheWriter at play here as while ''Voltron'' in general seems to go for the former, ''Anime/GoLion'' on the other hand went with the latter. Yes ''[=GoLion=]'' pretty much stated that Keith/Kogane's feelings for Allura/Fala were strictly platonic and that they were JustFriends in which if anything the other guys in the Voltron Force were far more interested and attracted to the Princess than Keith/Kogane was. (In which to be fair Voltron didn't exactly ignore that little aspect either especially Pidge.) However the original Voltron series did try to go for the former but it can come off as the latter though especially at first. Though in the American Voltron Animated shows such as ''The New Dimension'' and especially ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'' on the other hand are clearly going for the former though.

* EvilIsSexy: Lotor was fap material for female anime fans for a while due to his {{Bishonen}} appearance, his [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white hair]] and the fact that he was an antagonist ([[DracoInLeatherPants and you know how the fans get]]).

* BrokenBase: Voltron Vs. Anime/GoLion, which was the better show? There have been plenty who strongly preferred [=GoLion=] due to its grim DarkerAndEdgier dramatic style that is far easier to take it seriously compared to Voltron. Some have even hated WEP for butchering a dark and intense Mecha anime series by turning it into a {{Narm}}-filled LighterAndSofter generic Mecha Anime {{Macekre}} [[MerchandiseDriven just for the sake of cashing in on Voltron's merchandise]]. Some [=GoLion=] fans often make accusations that the only reason why anyone would still like Voltron is strictly due to nostalgia. However, there are those who still openly like Voltron even being well aware of how different it was compared to the original Japanese series. Some would even go so far as to prefer Voltron and find that some of the changes were actually an improvement. Some of them would also accuse [=GoLion=] of being a fairly generic grimdark anime that relied on gory violent scenes just for the sake of cheap shock value...despite still being a giant robot anime based on a multicolored lion robot. There's also been mention of how over time Lotor became a bit more of a conflicted and rounded character in Voltron compared to how he was a one-dimensional depraved CompleteMonster in the original. And of course one of the biggest reasons why anyone would prefer Voltron over [=GoLion=] was Sven/Shirogane's fate as noted under the {{Woolseyism}} entry below that even Japanese viewers preferred the idea of Sven getting injured then making a comeback over him getting KilledOffForReal early.

* NarmCharm: Sven's Norwegian accent is completely ridiculous and out of place. He's still the show's EnsembleDarkhorse.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Whatever else you might think of the show, that central theme is remembered by millions for a ''reason''. (Well, okay, [[EarWorm two reasons]].)
