* FandomNod: [[http://media.animevice.com/uploads/0/167/190696-500x_voltron_girl_super.jpg This]] adorable cosplayer shows up in the background in "Dradin, Baby Dradin".
* MoralEventHorizon: Sky Marshal Wade in "Wanted and Unwanted," when he deliberately opens the airlock so [[ThrownOutTheAirlock his prisoners will be sucked into space]].
** The same episode also revealed that Wade forced [[TheAtoner Cloak]] to build him [[InvisibilityCloak stealth camouflage]] for his prison and promptly rewards him by using the very same technology to commit genocide on his planet.
** Lampshaded in "Hungry for Voltron," as Lance and Keith decide to end things with Wade after he "crosses a line," presumably by trapping Allura and trying to kill her.
* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler:A holographic projection of Sky Marshall Wade's face replacing Voltron's. The way he says that he'll "Form the head" doesn't help.]]
* OlderThanTheyThink: Swapping mecha components for different forms actually goes all the way back to the classic ''Manga/GetterRobo''.
* {{Ship Tease}}: With Daniel and Larmina.
** Carrying over from the other series, Keith and Allura. Although they're all but confirmed as a couple by the end of the first season.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: One of the background tracks sounds a lot like "Enterprising Young Men" from the J.J. Abrams ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Dudley is a walking parody of this.
