  • Development Hell: A Live-Action Adaptation was talked about for a while, but stonewalled due to copyright issues with World Events and Toei. Although the disputes were said to have been settled (with World Events gaining all rights from Toei), talk about the movie had died down by 2011 when Voltron Force was made in its place. Five years later, with the success of Voltron: Legendary Defender and DreamWorks Animation (the current licensees of Voltron on behalf of World Events) moving to its permanent home at Universal, talks resurfaced again, the latest rumor being David Hayter having been attached to write the screenplay.

  • The Merch: It's a series based off a transforming robot that is formed of several other robots. Guess what got a ton of action figures based on it?
  • Name's the Same: Princess Allura is an alien but she's definitely not the mother of a Kryptonian super-hero.
  • Throw It In!: Neil Ross' odd voice for Pidge was done as a joke after his more realistic voices for the character were rejected. That was the one they went with.
  • The Other Darrin: Drule Commander Zabbar. After the original's final appearance (in Dairugger, he would have been killed off), another commander is called Zabbar and has the same voice. They don't really look much like each other, however.
  • What Could Have Been: World Events Productions had intended to use Mirai Robo Daltanious to make Voltron, but they asked Toei for "the show with the lion" and were sent GoLion instead. They decided that they liked that better. Daltanious, ironically, is made up of one of each of the types of robots used in the Voltron series: a lion, a vehicle, and a humanoid "gladiator".
