Lion Voltron Force (Golion Team)
(Original Japanese names in parentheses)
- Commander Keith (Akira Kogane) (voiced by Neil Ross in the '80s and '90s series, Giles Panton in the 2011 series): Commander and leader of the Voltron Force, who pilots the Black Lion that forms the bulk and head of Voltron. Keith wears a red uniform in the original series and a black uniform in Voltron: The Third Dimension. Keith is a quiet individual who spends much of his time pondering his decisions, thinking up new strategies, and simply being a leader. He also has a hobby of reading books and can often be found doing so either in the pilot's lounge, or in his room. He seemingly cherishes Princess Allura and is thought to be somewhat protective of her; his worst fear, according to Voltron: The Third Dimension, was that she would be forced to marry the evil Prince Lotor. In the Devil's Due comic series, Keith originally ran a dojo prior to being recruited by Hawkins. In Voltron Force, Keith is revealed to be of Arusian descent. This fact, coupled with his affection for Allura and her resignation from the Force to be the Queen of Arus, leads Keith to step down to serve Arus as its King. He passes the Black Lion pilot position to Daniel, though he takes this back in the season finale because Daniel wasn't really ready.
- Lance (Isamu Kurogane) (voiced by Michael Bell in the '80s and '90s series, Andrew Francis in the 2011 series): Second-in-command of Voltron, who pilots the Red Lion that forms the right arm of Voltron. Lance wears a blue uniform in the original series and a metallic red uniform in Voltron: The Third Dimension. He is a tall man, both wiry and wily, and Lance is always cracking jokes and teasing others whenever he gets the chance. He is the only one in the group who contests any of Keith's commands. He is a ladies' man and a great pilot, though reckless at times. In the Devil's Due comic series, Lance was forced into the mission to Arus due to his criminal record.
- Pidge (Hiroshi Suzuishi) (voiced by Neil Ross in the '80s series, Billy West in the '90s series, Samuel Vincent in the 2011 series): Pidge is the youngest, smartest, and smallest of the group; he pilots the Green Lion that forms the left arm of Voltron, and wears a green uniform. His home planet Balto (Earth in the Japanese version) was destroyed by nuclear missiles from King Zarkon. Pidge graduated from the academy at a young age, and his specialty is science. Like the others, he is well-trained in martial arts, and uses his size and agility to his advantage. Pidge is not afraid to speak his mind, especially to the villains. His heart is often in his words. Pidge has a twin brother, Chip, who is a member of the Vehicle Voltron Air Team. In Voltron Force, Pidge continues to be the brains behind the force, developing the castle defences and upgrading and providing maintenance for the Lions. Omitting his martial arts skills. During a trip to a recreated Balto, it is revealed that it is the planet where Voltron was originally programmed long ago. Pidge later realizes that due to his constant upgrading of the castle defence systems, he is the only one who is able to use them. Because of this, Pidge steps down as Green Lion pilot, passing the honor over to Vince.
- Sven (Takashi Shirogane) (voiced by Michael Bell in the '80s series, Alan Marriott in the 2011 series): Sven, a Norwegian pilot, was the original second-in-command. He piloted the Blue Lion and wore a black uniform at the very beginning of the series. In Episode 6, he was badly injured (killed in the Japanese version) during an attack by Haggar, in which he was bitten by her cat, and was sent away to the planet Ebb for medical treatment. Ebb was attacked and raided by Lotor's forces, and Sven was captured. The prison ship on which he was transferred accidentally crashed on Planet Doom where Sven went into hiding becoming a hermit within the caves. He eventually encountered Allura's cousin from the Planet Pollux, Princess Romelle, who had been thrown into the Pit of Skulls after she rejected Lotor's advances. During Sven's time on Planet Doom he witnessed Zarkon and Lotor's cruelty to their slaves, which drove him to the point of madness. He recovered thanks to Romelle's emotional support and helped her escape Doom. Sven was later reassigned to the Planet Pollux with Romelle and her brother Prince Bandor. Sven eventually became romantically interested in Romelle, though he was reluctant to pursue his feelings because he felt he was not able to clearly express them to her.Sven is always very quiet and reserved, and speaks only when he has something important to say. Though he may not show it, he is a very emotional person, and his heart is always leading his mind in any decision. Sven does not appear in nor is he mentioned in Voltron: The Third Dimension. Although Sven no longer pilots the Blue Lion on a regular basis after Episode 6, he (his twin brother in the Japanese version) continued to be featured as a pilot for the Voltron Force in the opening credits of the series while Allura appears in the closing sequence. However, Sven piloted the Blue Lion into combat on one more occasion, during the second season episode "Who's Flyin' Blue Lion," and quickly demonstrated that his time away had not diminished his formidable combat piloting skills. In the comics, it is revealed that Sven was leader of the team until he step down because of the drug use and recommended Keith to take his place. In the Voltron Force episode "Ghost in the Lion" Sven returns and hijacks the Blue Lion in an effort to save his baby son from Lotor and Maahox. It's revealed that the wound he got from Haggar's cat became infected with Haggarium. As a result, he can whip up a suit of armor similar to Lotor's Haggarium armor. After he helped his former teammates rescue his baby son, Allura, and the Blue Lion from Lotor, he sends the child to Arus, but chose to remain on the ice planet of Crydor feeling his condition is too far gone.
- Princess Allura (Princess Fala) (voiced by B.J. Ward in the '80s and '90s series, Ashleigh Ball in the 2011 series): Princess Allura of the planet Arus is the ruler of the Kingdom of Arus (Altea), as well as de facto ruler of the entire planet, and is also the object of Lotor's affections. Daughter of the late King Alfor, Allura inherited her father's authority on his death and is commander-in-chief and head of state for the planet Arus, and thus Commander Keith's superior. However, later she takes over for Sven as the pilot of the Blue Lion that forms Voltron's right leg, and defers to Keith during operational engagements. Allura wears a pink uniform in the original series and a metallic blue uniform in Voltron: The Third Dimension. Though a bit naïve, especially with matters of romance, Allura is a strong-willed person, and is very capable of ruling her planet, though some like Coran and Nanny tend to doubt this ability. She is capable of invoking the dead, particularly her father, the late King Alfor. In The Third Dimension, Allura later learns special mind skills that could allow the Voltron Force to control the Lions without having to be in the cockpits, and also helps the others to learn it as well. In Voltron Force, Allura eventually steps down as Blue Lion pilot, passing it over to her niece Larmina.
- Hunk (Tsuyoshi Seidou) (voiced by Lennie Weinrib in the '80s series, Kevin Michael Richardson in the '90s series, Ty Olsson in the 2011 series): Hunk is the strong-man of the group, piloting the Yellow Lion that forms Voltron's left leg. He is shown wearing an orange uniform in the original series and a metallic yellow uniform in Voltron: The Third Dimension. He may look tough and temperamental, but has a soft heart, especially when it comes to children and puppies. He is never late for a meal. Though his friends tease him about his appetite, most of Hunk's bulk is muscle.
The three cadets are recruited by the Voltron Force to help battle evil when Lotor returns. The three cadets have a hyperactive nature at first, causing them to be burdens to the original pilots, but they gradually mature during their training. They needed to learn navigation, hand-to-hand combat, tactical combat, strategies, science, and trusting each other. The three cadets tended to work by themselves and think individually, but they begin to learn that piloting the Lions is better when they work and think as a team. It was later revealed that the three cadets were recruited to eventually replace some of the original pilots.
- Daniel (voiced by Vincent Tong): Exclusive to Voltron Force, he is one of three new cadets for the Voltron Force. Of Asian descent, he and Vince were once cadets for the Galaxy Alliance, but were selected to be cadets for the Voltron Force due to their piloting skills. He also has a liking for going fast. This is evident by his VoltCom powers, which he can use to accelerate the speed of the Voltron lions, Voltron's formation sequence and Voltron himself. He's kind of impulsive, always getting into trouble; although many of his antics are beneficial to the success of Voltron Force. He sometimes gets jealous of Vince and Larmina because of their connections to Voltron, and tends to feel left out of the group. He was also jealous when Larmina became the first cadet to become a member of the Voltron Force instead of him. Daniel is often picked on by Larmina. Even so he tends to worry for her and appreciates her company. There is a very strong possibility that he has a crush on Larmina but does his best to keep it under lock and key. Daniel's mind was once trapped within Voltron, forcing Vince to head into Voltron to rescue him. Because of this event, Daniel becomes able to talk to Vince telepathically and the two are able to share VoltCom powers. However, Daniel also developed a Haggarium infection because of this, leading to increased rage and terrible visions. Due to his Haggarium infection, Daniel was able to see into the mind of Lotor, using this ability to lead Voltron in combat to defeat him once and for all, curing the infection. Because of this display of leadership, Keith steps down as Black Lion pilot to Daniel in order to become King of Arus, fulfilling Daniel's childhood dream. However, due to him becoming overconfident in the season finale, he was forced to give the title back to Keith. At the end of the finale, his Haggarium infection returns while piloting the Black Lion and it makes him attack the other lions.
- Vince (voiced by Doron Bell Jr.): Exclusive to Voltron Force, he is one of three new cadets for the Voltron Force. Of African descent, he and Daniel were once cadets for the Galaxy Alliance, but were selected to be cadets for the Voltron Force due to their piloting skills. He also has impressive technical skills which helps Pidge out a lot and appears to have some kind of power that links him to Voltron. The reason of why Vince has it is currently unknown, but it has been revealed that the Voltron lions have programming that enables them to use Vince's power as a "Key" to allow Voltron to accomplish special functions when the situation calls for it, particularly to make new formations of Voltron with new powers by reconfiguring itself with a different lion to form the main body while having the black lion form a limb. This explains the true nature of Vince's power, and particularly why it tends to act on its own. It is possible that Vince is a direct descendant of the original creators of Voltron, who may also have had similar powers. Vince can use his power under his own will, but sometimes it takes a lot of concentration and effort. However, Vince is keeping his powers a secret from the Voltron Force because he doesn't truly understand it and he thinks he can figure it out himself. After Vince rescued Daniel's consciousness from within Voltron, the two are able to communicate telepathically and share VoltCom powers. Eventually, Pidge hands over officially piloting the Green Lion to Vince to remain in constant control of the castle's defenses.
- Larmina (Voiced by Shannon Chan-Kent): Exclusive to Voltron Force, she is one of three new cadets for the Voltron Force. She is very skilled in hand-to-hand combat and is Allura's niece. While Allura is unmarried and an only child, the original Voltron series twice featured Allura's surviving aunt, Queen Orla. It is possible that Queen Orla is Larmina's mother, with 'Aunt' being a title of respect to an elder cousin. However, according to a recent book, Larmina is actually the offspring of Allura's older brother, Aldus. Larmina enjoys a good fight and hates to be left out of the action. She does not always think things through and is unskilled at piloting. Larmina is often teasing Daniel with insults. This may be a result of her hiding her crush on him as it's depicted at the ending of the episode Predator Robeast she had snapped various pictures of him and flirts. In various other episodes it shows them bonding, getting closer, and flirting. Larmina officially takes over piloting the Blue Lion after Allura resigns to be queen.
Vehicle Voltron Force (Rugger Team)
Air Team (Aki Team)
Air Team uniforms are dark blue, yellow, and white.
- Air Team Commander Jeff (Aki Manabu) (voiced by Neil Ross in the 80's series): Leader of the entire Vehicle Force and commander of the Air Team, Jeff is head-strong, occasionally quick-tempered, yet still a great fighter and a very capable leader, even if he does not always follow the rules. Although dialogue early in the series hints at something going on between him and Ginger, later episodes suggest a relationship between him and Lisa. He pilots the Command Jet Explorer (#1), which becomes the head of Voltron. In Fleet of Doom, it is revealed that Jeff and Keith had a friendly rivalry in their academy days.
- Rocky (Kai Shinobu) (voiced by Lennie Weinrib): Brooklyn-accented member of the Air Team, usually described by fans as the "Hunk" of the Vehicle Voltron Force. He pilots the Strato Weapons Module (#2) that forms the upper torso of Voltron. Sparring partner of Hunk in their academy days.

- Lisa (Haruka Kaga) (voiced by B.J. Ward): Kind and compassionate member of the Sea Team. She is very knowledgeable in ancient cultures, and always seems to know the right thing to say to others. She is in an undefined relationship with Jeff. She pilots the Space Prober (#7) that becomes the right thigh of Voltron.
- Tangor (Saruka Katz) One of the members of the Vehicle Voltron Force who is usually treated as an underused background character. Tangor pilots the Space Prober (#8) that forms the left thigh of Voltron.
- Shannon (Tatsuo Izumo) (voiced by Michael Bell): Irish-accented member of the Sea Team. Like Ginger, he too fights for a noble cause, as his brother is a prisoner of the Drule Empire, on Planet Doom. He pilots the Multi-Wheeled Explorer (#9) that becomes the right lower leg of Voltron.
- Zandee (Barros Karateya): Another member of the Vehicle Voltron Force who is usually treated as a barely used background character. Zandee pilots the Multi-Wheeled Explorer (#10) that becomes the left lower leg of Voltron.
Land Team (Walter Team)
Land Team uniforms are red and white.
- Land Team Commander Cliff (Walter Jack) (voiced by Lennie Weinrib): He has a strong Australian accent, and sometimes tends to have a wry sense of humor. He pilots the Jet Radar Station (#11) that forms the lower torso/hips of Voltron. When he first came to the academy, Lance and Wolo yanked him into the pool.
- Cinda (Moya Kirigas) (voiced by B.J. Ward): Member of the Land Team. Like Lisa, she too is kind and emotional, especially when it comes to nature. She comes from the same water planet as Krik. She pilots the Rotating Personnel Carrier (#12) that forms the right forearm of Voltron.
- Modok (Mack Chukker) (voiced by Michael Bell): Large member of the Land Team, who can best be described as a "gentle giant." He pilots the Armored Equipment Carrier (#13) that forms the left forearm of Voltron.
- Marvin and Hutch (Tasuku Izu and Kazuto Nagato) (voiced by Michael Bell and Peter Cullen, respectively): Good friends and members of the Land Team, they can often be seen together, either playing cards or brawling with each other.

They pilot the All-Terrain Space Vehicles (#14 and #15) that form the right and left feet of Voltron, respectively.
Lion Voltron (Golion)
A sentient robot created by King Alfor on Arus to fight against the armies of Planet Doom. Among Voltron's weapons are the Spinning Laser Blade, Lion Head Attack, Lion Torches, Sting Ray Missiles, Ion Darts, Eye Beams, Electro-Force Cross, Lion Lariat, Lion Saber, Argon Force Field, and the Blazing Sword, its ultimate weapon. Voltron was later separated into the five Lions by Haggar. In the first season finale of The Third Dimension, Voltron was destroyed, but recreated in the beginning of the second season, and would go on to be reconfigured into Stealth Voltron whenever he passed into another dimension.
In Voltron Force, due to Vince's mysterious powers, Voltron can reconfigure himself with a different lion to form the main body while the Black Lion becomes a limb. Additionally, Voltron can use Daniel's VoltCom powers to boost the speed of the lions, his formation sequence and himself. With Larmina's VoltCom powers, Voltron gains improved hand-to-hand combat skills and a Blazing Katana which he wields alongside his Blazing Sword. Also revealed in Voltron Force is that many planets have had connections to Voltron's creation - Arus, Earth, Balto, and Ariel.
- Black Lion (Kurojishi): Piloted by Keith, the Black Lion forms the main body of Voltron. Later piloted by Allura in two episodes. Now piloted by Daniel. Unlike the other Lions, the Black Lion did not have a "closed" hangar. Throughout the series, the Black Lion's hangar is located on the large tower fronting the castle, which was previously occupied by a winged lion statue which hid it. When the Black Lion was first activated, this statue crumbled apart to reveal it, and the Black Lion folded its seldom-used wings. Among its various weapons are a Plasma Blaster, Cross Beam, Shoulder Cannon, Mouth Dagger, and a full array of Mk.1 Fang Missiles. In Voltron: The Third Dimension, it is shown that the winged lion statue literally morphs into the Black Lion when the lion is launched. In Voltron Force, Black Lion gains a "Tail Shock" and its hangar is the central tower of the castle, which opens to deploy the Black Lion. Additionally, the "default" configuration of Voltron is also known as Black Center. In all media, when the Black Lion forms the body of Voltron, his weapon is the Blazing Sword.
- Weapon form command (all shows): Form Blazing Sword (Jyuoken)
- Reconfiguration command (Voltron Force only): Form Black Center
- Other weapon form commands (Voltron Force only) (Black Center/Larmina's voice): Energy Star, Blazing Katana
- Red Lion (Akajishi): Piloted by Lance, the Red Lion forms the right arm of Voltron. Later piloted by Princess Allura in one episode since Lance was using the Blue Lion to find the cure for the deadly flowers. The Red Lion's hangar is located inside a volcano near the castle. Among its weapons are Dual Shoulder Triple Barrel Mortars, Lava Cannon, Mk.1 Fang Missiles, and a Curved Mouth Dagger. In Voltron Force, Red Lion gains a "Sub-Infrared Thermographic Optics", "Precision Laser" and can form the body of Voltron (known as Red Center) which uses the "Magma Pistols". In Red Center configuration, the Black Lion is Voltron's right arm.
- Weapon form command (Voltron Force only): Draw Magma Pistols ("Form Blazing Guns" the first time)
- Reconfiguration command (Voltron Force only): Form Red Center
- Green Lion (Midonjishi): Piloted by Pidge, the Green Lion forms the left arm of Voltron. Piloted by Keith in its first launch before the Black Lion was recovered, and has now been passed down to Vince in Voltron Force. The Green Lion's hangar is located in a forest near the castle. Among its weapons are Dual Shoulder Turret Guns, Mouth Dagger, and Mk.1 Fang Missiles. In Voltron Force, Green Lion gains a "3D Digital-Camouflage" stealth package, "Sonic Blaster", "Shuriken Tail",+kl "Boomerang Blade" and can form the body of Voltron (known as Green Center) which gives Voltron a Tech Ninja look with a "Boomerang Shield". In Green Center configuration, the Black Lion is Voltron's left arm.
- Weapon form command (Voltron Force only): Form Boomerang Shield
- Reconfiguration command (Voltron Force only): Form Green Center
- Blue Lion (Aojishi): Originally piloted by Sven until Allura became its official pilot and has been passed down to Larmina, the Blue Lion forms the right leg of Voltron. Piloted in one episode each by Keith, Coran, and Nanny together, and a replacement pilot (who turned out to be an agent of Zarkon). Piloted once by Lance when he went off to a distant planet to find the cure by which to heal the Princess. Lance piloted the Blue Lion because the planet had a special magnetic field that only the Blue Lion could overcome. The Blue Lion's hangar is located underneath the moat that surrounds the castle. Among its weapons are Dual Shoulder Blockbuster Turrets, Mk.1 Fang Missiles, Sidewinder Claw Torpedoes, and a Holy Mouth Dagger. In Voltron Force, Blue Lion gains a "Freeze Ray" and can form the body of Voltron (known as Blue Center) which uses the "Titanic Trident", a double-ended trident. In Blue Center configuration, the Black Lion is Voltron's right leg. It is also shown to perform better underwater than the other lions, similar to the way black lion appears to fly faster than the other lions.
- Weapon form command (Voltron Force only): Form Titanic Trident
- Reconfiguration command (Voltron Force only): Form Blue Center
- Yellow Lion (Kijishi): Piloted by Hunk, the Yellow Lion forms the left leg of Voltron. The Yellow Lion's hangar is located inside a lion-shaped cave located in a desert near the castle. Among its weapons are its Plasma Flash Cannon, Radial Shogun Shoulder Blasters, Mk.1 Fang Missiles, and a Mouth Dagger. In Voltron: The Third Dimension, its hangar was redesigned to resemble a sphinx-like form instead of an ordinary cave. In Voltron Force, Yellow Lion gains a "Vibration Cannon", "Switchblade Claw Hammer", and a "Demolition Tail" as well as a prominent underbite which helps serve as a land plower and can form the body of Voltron (known as Yellow Center) which uses the "Wrecking Maces" twin flails. Voltron Yellow Center has the unique ability to deploy solar cell wings and recharge the robot when he's away from Planet Arus. In Yellow Center configuration, the Black Lion is Voltron's left leg. When Yellow Center is active, the background music is played in a more rock-inspired style, mirroring Hunk's personality.
- Weapon form command (Voltron Force only): Rock Wrecking Maces ("Form Blazing Something" the first time)
- Reconfiguration command (Voltron Force only): Form Yellow Center
Vehicle Voltron (Dairugger)
In the Devil's Due comic series, Vehicle Voltron was created due to the Galaxy Garrison reverse-engineering the original Voltron after abducting him from Arus under orders from a Drule spy.[volume & issue needed] The machine was named "V-15" within the comics, and was first deployed after Voltron to recapture him until they received new orders to support him.[volume & issue needed] Among its weapons are the Solar Combat Spears, Ray Beam Whip, Electro-thermal Blast, Eye Beams, Wing Beam, Solar Wind Blast, and the Spinning Laser Blades which are used as precursor to the Blazing Sword. Unlike the animated series, which depicted the two Voltron Forces as being family members, as with Chip and Pidge, or longstanding friends (as shown in an episode at the end of the Lion Force run and in the "Fleet of Doom" special, which brought both Voltrons together; however, the Devil's Due comic showed Keith and Jeff as having an antagonistic relationship with one another, particularly with regard to Lion Voltron's accidental "sneak attack" on Vehicle Voltron during the robots' first battle together while the Fleet of Doom special made out the two commanders as good friends.[volume & issue needed]

- Awesometron: A humanoid robot formed from Daniel's motorcycle, Vince's tank, and Larmina's combat vehicle, piloted by the Voltron cadets.
Voltron Lion Force
- Chief Kalon: Exclusive to Voltron Force, Kalon is an ancient lion protector or Lion Rider of Planet Ariel. He and his lion riders protect the Krelshi, ghostly beasts that are an essential part of Ariel's "harmonious spiritual aura". After Voltron Force helps him maintain order with the Krelshi, he is in their debt. During Keith's plan to rescue political prisoners from "The Void", he is surprised when he finds Kalon in the "Black Hole" cell with him and plans to make his escape. In the final battle with Sky Marshall Wade, Kalon and his lion riders help out in the fight destroying Wade's robots in the process and takes Wade's pet lion into custody wondering why he was raised in such an evil way.
- Coran (Strategist Raible) (voiced by Peter Cullen in the '80s series, Michael Bell in the '90s series, Ron Halder in the 2011 series): Coran is Allura's royal advisor, in charge of the Castle Control, current Galaxy Alliance Ambassador from Arus and President of the Galaxy Garrison Council. He also advises the Voltron Force, and is very wise, though he can be very overprotective and opinionated at times. He is the commander of the Castle of Lions crew, once the Castle became battle-worthy, and especially once it transforms into the Flying Fortress. In Voltron: The Third Dimension, Coran remains the same as before but is now more affiliated with the Galaxy Alliance. His biggest role in that series came when the Voltron Force was on trial for treason; he spoke in their defense, which resulted in the Alliance finding them not guilty. In Voltron Force, he represents Planet Arus in the Galaxy Alliance and was the most vocal about reactivating Voltron when it was proven that Lotor had returned. Due to the Alliance being under the control of Sky Marshall Wade's regime, he has returned to Castle Control.
- Princess Farla (Aimee): Farla is the princess of Planet Lyra who gives Lance the seeds to the famed "Rose of Lyra" so that he can save the people on Planet Arus from the evil flowers sent by Haggar.
- King Alfor (King Raimon) (voiced by Peter Cullen in the '80s series, Tim Curry in the '90s series, Sam Vincent in the 2011 series): King Alfor is Allura's deceased father, and the previous ruler of planet Arus. Years ago, King Alfor went forth to battle against King Zarkon and his forces in the Valley of Zohar on Planet Arus. He was tragically killed on that day. His body was placed in a royal tomb located directly beneath the Castle of Lions. Nowadays, he returns to the world of the living in a ghostly form to give advice to his daughter to help her in her struggles to maintain peace on Arus and the surrounding galaxy. King Alfor is credited with being the designer of Voltron. In The Third Dimension, it was Alfor's rejection of Witch Haggar that embittered her to evil. She later got her revenge on him by using her magic to capture his spirit and implanting it within a Robeast, preventing the Voltron force from attacking. He was eventually released with the help of Allura and the voice of Queen Ariella.
- Manset (voiced by Garry Chalk): Exclusive to Voltron Force, Manset is a crustacean-like alien smuggler and friend of Keith who was once a political prisoner of the Den Resistance imprisoned in "The Void", a floating prison operated by Sky Marshall Wade. He was broken out of prison by Keith and escaped into obscurity, not to be heard from again until he is seen helping out with the relief effort by importing food and supplies for Planet Ebb. He also provided backup for the Voltron Force by supplying one of his airships filled with Krelshi, ancient lion riders in the final battle with Wade. Manset has a few ideas how to get Voltron back home, and gives Voltron Force the "friends and family" discount with the shipping. It appears Manset has gone legit, as his smuggling days may be over...for now.
- Nanny (Senior Court Lady Hys) (voiced by B.J. Ward): Nanny is Allura's over-protective caregiver, who always wants to make all of Allura's decisions for her. Like Coran, Nanny fusses over the Princess and is bent on keeping her away from all harm. In Voltron Force, she cares for Sven's infant son while he is in self-exile on Crydor. In Go-Lion she originally was killed.
- Prince Bandor (Prince Alor) (voiced by Neil Ross): Co-ruler of planet Pollux, along with his older sister, Princess Romelle. Became heir apparent after the death of his older brother.
- Princess Romelle (Princess Amue) (voiced by B.J. Ward): Princess Romelle is Allura's cousin, who lives on the planet Pollux, where she co-rules with her brother, Prince Bandor. She is a dead-ringer for Princess Allura, in terms of physical appearance although Romelle's voice is lower than Allura's. Romelle was once a slave of Lotor, until Sven came to her rescue; together they fight for her people against the Drule Empire. She and Sven become engaged and live "happily ever after" on Pollux.
- Queen Ariella: First Queen of Planet Arus in The Third Dimension. She first came to Arus from another planet and was found and raised by the five lions before they became Robot lions. It was said they she constructed the Castle of Lions. Now deceased, she appears to Allura as a spirit, much like her father does, and reveals to Allura a way to recreate the five Lions after they are destroyed. She explains that the five lions can never really be destroyed, as their spirits will always be with Arus.
- Space Mice (Platt-Chuchule and others): The Space Mice are pastel-colored mice displaying a human-like level of intelligence, who were Princess Allura's friends as a child. They are often mischievous, but sometimes helpful. There are five Space Mice, though the fifth mouse is rarely seen until later episodes, perhaps because of not being born, or being too young to leave the nest at first. There is a large light blue mouse, a large pink mouse, two medium-sized light blue mice, and a much smaller light blue mouse. The cartoon was very inconsistent with the names of the mice; names used for various mice included Chitter, Cheddar, Cheeser, Cheesy, Pip, Squeek, Mousie, Prince, Toady, Inky, and Suki. Toward the end of the Lion Force Voltron series, the Space Mice wear orange Voltron Force uniforms and pilot a machine called the Mouse Plane, which can transform into a comic-looking Mouse Voltron. In the Devil's Due comic series, the Space Mice were cybernetic robots constructed for Princess Allura by her father. The robotic Space Mice are continued into Voltron Force.
S.S. Explorer crew
- Commander Hawkins (Shinji Ise): (voiced by Peter Cullen): Commander of the S.S. Explorer, it is Commander Hawkins who gives all the orders to the Vehicle Voltron Force. Firm and hard working, Hawkins is determined to make peace with the Drule Empire, despite how many times they attempt to backstab him in the process. In the Devil's Due comic series, Hawkins was the one who gathered Keith and his crew together in order to have them find Voltron for their fight against the Drules.
- Captain Newley (Dick Asimov) (voiced by Lennie Weinrib): Captain of the S.S. Explorer, and good friend to Commander Hawkins. Midway through the series, he gets transferred back to Galaxy Garrison on Earth, but that does not stop his fight against the Drules.
- Sparks (voiced by Jack Angel): Usually seen on the bridge with Hawkins and Newley.
- Professor Page (Doctor Search) (voiced by Jack Angel): The S.S. Explorer's chief scientist and acting physician, he can tell all about a planet's history and even its cultures simply by examining a mere sample or artifact.
- Debbie (voiced by BJ Ward): A scientist sometimes seen with Professor Page.
- Hardware: Little green robot aboard the S.S. Explorer, who according to Ginger, is the only one who likes it when the Vehicle Voltron Force cannot go out on a mission.
The government within the Voltron series. While some of its members help the Voltron teams, others have their own agenda.
- Space Marshal Graham (High Commander Wasaka) (voiced by Jack Angel): Supreme commander of the Galaxy Alliance. Along with Commander Steele, he is usually conducting meetings discussing current situations involving the ongoing conflict with the Drule Empire.
- Commander Steele (Supreme Commander Dewa) (voiced by Neil Ross): High-ranking official of the Galaxy Alliance. Along with Space Marshal Graham, he is usually conducting meetings discussing current situations involving the war with the Drule Empire. He takes a more active role in the conflict towards the end of the series.
- Defense Minister:
- Captain Keyo (Captain Kehl) (voiced by Michael Bell): Captain of the backup fleet, Keyo is of the same race as Wolo and Tangor. Against orders not to interfere, the Voltron Force attempts to defend Kio's fleet against an ambush from a Drule fleet that pretended to be a peace envoy. Keyo orders the Voltron Force to obey orders and return to the Explorer. Keyo and his crew sacrifice themselves to prevent a political incident. Along with Yurak, Keyo is the only other named character in Voltron whose death is retained without editing or dialogue disclaimers.
- Colonel Cross (voiced by Neil Ross):
- Amalgamus (voiced by Neil Ross): Cyborg-like liasion to the Voltron Lion Force in Third Dimension. He is an amalgam of all 900 planets of the Galaxy Alliance and the highest-ranked official of Galaxy Garrison. He at first was reluctant to have Voltron reactivated, believing diplomacy could be used to make peace with Lotor. But over time, he comes to accept Voltron as a necessary ally. He is also the only one who fully trusts Zarkon, which is also his greatest weakness as he was unknowingly reprogrammed by Zarkon to distrust the Voltron Force more and more, going as far as to have them decommissioned five times and even put them on trial for treason against the Alliance one time. When Lotor held the Troika Moons hostage in exchange for the destruction of the Voltron Lions, it was Amalgamus who gave the order to destroy them. This, along with Zarkon's position within the Alliance, left Galaxy Garrison open for an easy assault by Lotor at the end of the first season. By this time, Amalgamus had learned of Zarkon's true allegiance, but was helpless to stop Zarkon from turning him into a video game and then later a cowardly blabbermouth later in the series. Towards the end of the series, he was retaken by the Voltron Force and restored to his original Voltron allied programming. Then, Amalgamus and the Voltron Force exposed Zarkon's true plans to the Alliance.
Drule Empire (Galveston)
The Drule Empire are the main enemies of the Voltron Lion and Vehicle Teams, ruled by Emperor Zeppo. They are at war with the Galaxy Alliance. Most of them are humanoids with light purple skin and red eyes. Among many planets in the empire are Drule, Doom, etc.
- Emperor Zeppo (Emperor Corsair): (voiced by Michael Bell): Through most of the series, all we ever see of Zeppo is a portrait of him adorning every Drule command ship. It is not until much later that he is introduced in the flesh, attending meetings of the Drule Supreme Council. No other Drule holds higher royal rank than the Emperor. When the liberation of planet Drule finally came, Zeppo quietly stood by as Hazar personally overthrew his rule. Hazar thus immediately became Drule's rightful emperor, though he then decreed that their world would no longer have any Emperors, but that leaders would from then on be elected. Zeppo and Throk proceeded to quietly flee the dying planet. Shortly after the inevitable destruction of planet Drule, the liberated citizens were moved to a new planet by the Galaxy Alliance. As soon as they settled in, Zeppo and Throk set up a decoy to distract the Voltron Force, while the remnants of the Drule Empire swept in on the planet and retook control of their people. Emperor Zeppo was in control again.
Planet Doom (Galra)
The villains of the Lion Voltron series, ruled by King Zarkon in the Denubian galaxy. In the Devil's Due comic series, Planet Doom is the center of the Drule Empire as the "Kingdom of Night".
- King Zarkon (Emperor Daibazaal) (voiced by Jack Angel in the 80s series, Kevin Michael Richardson in the 90s series): The main villain of the Voltron Lion Force, King Zarkon of the Planet Doom is one of the rulers of the Drule Empire, though by no means the absolute ruler (who is Emperor Zeppo), and pretty much operates on his own. He is constantly using others as scapegoats for his own failures, including his son, Lotor. Zarkon resurfaces in Voltron: The Third Dimension, having redeemed himself prior to his final defeat, and became a member of the Galaxy Alliance. However, Zarkon's redemption was really a ruse and he turned out to be the true mastermind behind Lotor in a bid to take over the galaxy.
- Prince Lotor (Prince Sincline)/Spider Lotor Robeast (voiced by Lennie Weinrib in the 80s series, Tim Curry in the 90s series, Mark Hildreth in the 2011 series): Lotor is the son of Zarkon and prince of Planet Doom, though he would plot to overthrow his father to rule in his place with Princess Allura by his side, to whom he has developed a strong and obsessive attraction and because of this he rejects other potential suitresses that would be his queen. So powerful are his feelings that he is unable to even destroy a holographic image of Allura. Lotor is a very sly, smart, smooth, powerful man, who exudes force and emanates what seems to be pure evil, except when Allura is around. In the Devil's Due comic series, Lotor met Allura while they were children during Zarkon's invasion of Arus and follows a warrior's code of honor while seeing all non-Drule life forms to be inferior. In Voltron: The Third Dimension, Lotor was mortally wounded in the final battle, and was converted into a cyborg after he was placed in prison. However, he escaped and perpetrated his revenge on the heroes, though he still has feelings for Allura. In Voltron Force, succeeding in becoming king, Lotor was killed off in the final battle. However, he is revived years later by his body being infused with Haggarium with side effects that enable him to fight Voltron despite the size difference. Much like in The Third Dimension, Lotor still is bent on making Allura his queen, but that was only shown in the episode named: Joyride to Doom. After that, the stalking is never showed again.
- Queen Merla (voiced by Tress MacNeille): A villainess exclusive to the U.S. version and the Devil's Due comic, serving as Lotor's bride to be as Zarkon's attempt to reap the political benefits of their union. Known for having a StratoVulture on her shoulder, and pilots a Star Cutter ship. She has limited telepathic abilities that allow her to read minds. She eventually declared to peacefully ally herself with the Galaxy Alliance, befriending the Voltron Lion Force.
- Witch Haggar (Yoba Honerva) (voiced by B.J. Ward): Haggar the witch is the one responsible for creating all of the Robeasts Zarkon uses. She is notorious for using her dark magic to cast hypnotizing spells over people. Though she was once good and beautiful, she is now evil and hideous. It was Haggar who was responsible for originally splitting Voltron into five components in the American version. In Voltron: The Third Dimension, Haggar went into hiding after the final battle. But after Lotor escaped from prison, she rejoined Lotor in his schemes to destroy the Voltron Force and conquer the galaxy. In the Devil's Due comic series, Haggar had no part in Voltron's origin story, replaced by an ancestor of Zarkon's, though she is well versed in it. She also attempts to brainwash Sven under Merla's wishes. In Voltron Force, for reasons not yet revealed, Haggar became a quasar from which a special energy called Haggarium is cultivated to revive Lotor and produce a new series of Robeasts. In Golion Honerva is secretly Daibazaal's mother and Sincline's grandmother. She despises Sincline.
- Devil Cat Coba (Jaga): Haggar's blue cat and enemy of the Space Mice.
- Commander Yurak (Commander Sadak)/Yurak Robeast (Great Sadak): (voiced by Jack Angel): Commander of the Doom Forces. Due to his numerous defeats by Voltron, he is sentenced to death (exile in the Voltron dub) He is transformed into a gigantic Robeast fighter in hopes of redeeming himself. However, he is killed by Voltron.
- Mogor (Commander Gobra) (voiced by Jack Angel): Took Yurak's place as Prince Lotor's second-in-command. Sometimes his rank is either Commander or Captain. A highly decorated veteran in Zarkon's army, he is first and foremost a soldier. Said to be killed by Lotor in an ensuing power struggle.
- Carp (Reggar) (voiced by Peter Cullen): A cocky, egotistical ace pilot who is recruited by Lotor and Haggar. Although given a Robeast to pilot, he retains his smug attitude by demanding that the Robeast be painted red to match his trademark color. He wreaks considerable havoc on Arus and several other planets. He is made Governor General much to the annoyance of Mogor who disliked Karp's superior attitude. Karp was eventually defeated by Voltron; one of the few enemies that Voltron defeated by chance. Mogor was not disappointed that Karp had such a short career as Governor General. In the American Voltron, as was usual, Karp's death was covered by dialogue; in this case Lotor saying "Maybe he'll land safely and come again." Lotor's voiceover continues over what is actually a sunrise; however, the added sound effect suggests an explosion on the planet. Lotor states that Karp, unfortunately, did not make a very good landing and would probably be in no condition to fly for a long time.
- Garrett (voiced by Jack Angel): An X4-11 clone of Coran's son.
- Commander Cossack (voiced by Jack Angel): A replacement for Mogor, he was generally ineffective against Voltron, though like Yurak, he often went into battle throwing everything he could think of against the robot, including various Robeasts given to him by Haggar for the purpose of battling Voltron. Calls himself "Cossack the Terrible".
- Queequeg and Lafitte (voiced by Billy West and Tress MacNeille): Exclusive to Voltron: The Third Dimension, these two space pirates were drafted by Lotor for menial work.
- Igor (voiced by Clancy Brown): A robotic figure who was commander of Lotor's army in Voltron: The Third Dimension. Igor was among Zarkon and Lotor's forces of Doom who were defeated by the Voltron Force.
- Maahox (voiced by Ron Halder): Exclusive to Voltron Force, he is a scientist from the planet Calum with knowledge of the occult and genetic manipulation before sent into exile. He aids Kala in reviving Lotor, only to betray her and turn her into the first new generation of Robeast while becoming Lotor's right-hand man.
- Commander Kala/Kala Spider Robeast/Kala Spider-Lion Robeast (voiced by Tabitha St. Germain): Exclusive to Voltron Force, a Drule commander infamous for her military intellect and unequaled blood lust. She recruits Maahox to resurrect Lotor, only to be betrayed by the scientist and fused with an alien arachnid to become the first of a new generation of Robeasts. In her new Robeast form, Kala manages to capture Wade's robot lion and merge with it to become a fusion of lion and spider before being defeated by Voltron and tossed into space. However, Kala's mutated body is revealed to be able to repair itself even when on the brink of utter destruction. By that time, Kala learned that she unintentionally formed a mental link with Wade and eventually absorbed him into her Robeast form. But when Lotor transformed the Kala-Wade Robeast into his new body, the Voltron Force used teamwork to defeat the monster.
- Ultra Droids (Black Soldiers): Planet Doom's foot soldiers.
- Dwarflings: Queen Merla's foot soldiers.
Drule Supreme Council
- Viceroy Throk (Supreme Commander Al Caponero) (voiced by Peter Cullen): Possibly the worst of the worst, Throk is at bitter ends with Mozak and Hazar, and the loyalist supporter of Emperor Zeppo. Throk becomes the main baddie under Zeppo towards the very end of the series, especially during the impending arrival of the Voltron Force on the planet Drule to aid Hazar in liberating the homeworld, and overthrowing Zeppo. Later, Throk would join forces with Zarkon in building the universe's most feared space armada, the Fleet of Doom.
- Durax (voiced by Jack Angel):
- Marshall Keezor (Luciano) (voiced by Michael Bell): Wicked and crafty member of the Drule Supreme Council. He first arrived personally to give Hazar the news of his demotion, then appeared to take on Hazar's duties of eliminating the Voltron Force. In the Lion Voltron series, it was also Keezor who arranged for Zarkon to be stripped of his powers and to have those powers handed over to Lotor.
- Commander Vargo:
- Commander Flazon:
- Commander Borgam:
- Captain Mongo (Drake) (voiced by Jack Angel): One of the Drule Empire's best officers, and loyal friend to Hazar. When Hazar began to have a change of heart, Mongo was one of the few Drules who supported him, and he continued to loyally support him, until he eventually went into exile midway through the series. Presumably due to an error, during the first two episodes in which this character appears, he was called Malvor and had a different voice.
- Captain Quark (Commander Rackal) (voiced by Jack Angel): An early opponent of the Explorer and its crew. Persistent, but ultimately ineffective against the Voltron Force. He causes the destruction of an uninhabited planet that the Drules and humans were competing over. Curiously, his death scene is included in the American Voltron release, but the scene was incongruously dubbed over, with Quark saying, "I'll be back," before his ship explodes. A member of the Voltron Force (Wolo) later states, "Quark got away again."
- Captain Rogar:
- Captain Zabar (Gramont) (voiced by Lennie Weinrib): An ambitious Drule commander who sides first with Brak, then Nerok against Hazar's stand for peaceful cooperation. He hopes to be given rule of Earth after the defeat of the Galaxy Alliance. Immediately following the last episode in which he appeared, another Drule commander appeared who was also named Zabbar and had a similar voice. The two Drule commanders did not resemble each other, so this was possibly due to a script blooper. In some of the episodes, Zabar's voice was identical to Prince Lotor's.
- Captain Nerok (Lafitte) (voiced by Michael Bell): Cruel and heavyset Drule officer. A natural-born kiss-up and backstabber, he lives for nothing more than destroying the Galaxy Alliance and making Hazar look like a fool.
- Captain Brack (Barataria) (voiced by Jack Angel): Hazar's earliest opponent to peaceful negotiations with the Galaxy Alliance. Brak attempts to drive a wedge between Hazar and Mongo. Unlike other opponents to Hazar, Brak appears to respect Hazar and hopes to persuade Hazar to consider the needs of the Drule Empire first. In frustration over failing to persuade Hazar, Brak attempts to stage a military coup but failed and was imprisoned.
- Sandu (Sim): A Drule pilot who is captured by the Explorer crew. Commander Hawkins, in usual form, treats the pilot as a guest instead of a prisoner. However, this upsets Shannon, a member of the Voltron Force Sea Team, who has a brother being held prisoner by the Drules. Shannon, upon getting to know Sandu, realizes that Sandu, despite being on the side of the enemy, is only following orders and unaware of the evil nature of his masters. Sandu is allowed to return to his ship, but is shot down by a Drule commander, who believes it is a trick by the humans. In the American version, he crash lands on a planet and though badly wounded, apparently survives.
- Captain Raddick:
- Captain Gorvan:
- Captain Zabore:
- Captain Gorzil:
- Captain Dirka:
- Captain Maldon:
- Captain Bordo:
- Captain Bratso:
- Captain Toxic:
- Captain Twyla (Emma) (voiced by B.J. Ward): A female Drule officer who is captured by the Explorer crew. She is confused by Commander Hawkins's treatment of her as a guest instead of a prisoner like Sandu had been. Hawkins explains to her that willingness to discuss peace negotiations is not the same thing as selling out her race. Her final fate is unknown, but Hawkins hoped that she communicated a new alternative to other members of her race.

- Commandant Bakki (voiced by Michael Bell): Founder of the U.R.F., Bakki is a kind-hearted Drule, who hopes to liberate his homeworld's citizens from the tyranny of the Drule rulers.
- Chief Commander Hazar (Galveston High Commander Dorita Teles) (voiced by Jack Angel): High-ranking warlord of the Drule Empire. At the beginning of the series, he was a typical Drule leader bent on galactic conquest. However, midway through the series, he begins to have a change of heart, and becomes more compassionate in his quest; and, like Commander Hawkins, tries time and time again to arrange for peace between the Drule Empire and the Galaxy Alliance. Throughout the series, he has had to put up with demotions, imprisonment, and worst of all; treacherous underlings who repeatedly and deliberately disobey his direct orders of helping bring peace, in favor of attacking the Alliance.
- Dorma (Sirk) (voiced by B.J. Ward): Hazar's kindhearted sister, who appears towards the end of the series. When she is kidnapped by the Drule U.R.F. (Underground Rebel Force), she agrees to join in their fight for peace and freedom on planet Drule.
- Chancellor Mozak (Internal Commissioner Socrat Tes): Hazar and Dorma's father, and kindhearted member of the Drule Supreme Council, he wishes nothing more than for peace and freedom on planet Drule. He often clashes in his views with Viceroy Throk.

Exclusive to Voltron: The Third Dimension, evil counterparts to the lions based on dragons, the Dragons lived in an alternate dimension, but were so ferocious and destructive that they left it a desolate wasteland, forcing them to travel to other dimensions to steal food as well as structures within which to protect their eggs from their atmosphere. The most powerful Dragon is Black Draco, the black dragon. Five Dragons can merge to form Dracotron, an evil incarnation of Voltron with a superblast attack so strong, as indirectly stated in Third Dimension, that two blasts can destroy Voltron. In Third Dimension, the Dragons and Dracotron make multiple appearances and are destroyed each time, indicating that possibly any five Dragons can merge into a Dracotron.
- Sky Marshall Wade (voiced by Garry Chalk): Exclusive to Voltron Force, he is a dangerous, corrupt official who simply wants money and power, having the highest seat of power in the Galaxy Alliance. Originally a Galaxy Alliance cadet, Wade tried to become a Voltron pilot, but he was rejected because the Black Lion found him unworthy. Rejected and humiliated this caused Wade to go insane. It is revealed that he deeply saw Voltron as power not as defender of the universe and this is one of the reasons why he was unworthy to become a Voltron pilot. From there, he engineered the Lions' being outlawed by sabotaging them to go berserk, taking the Black Lion to reverse engineer the Black Lion's technology to create his own robot lion that he controls via virtual interface along with his remote controlled robot soldiers. However, during the reverse engineer the Black Lion's technology, Wade was unable to fully understand the Black Lion's technology because Voltron was created by both science and magic. Coran tells the Voltron cadets that Wade "wanted to be better than Voltron." When Voltron Force reassembled, Wade used his robot lion to try to eliminate them, but his creation was absorbed by Kala, and he was rendered unconscious throughout the remainder of the fight. He later reappears with a dual-pronged effort to destroy the Voltron Force, who make many efforts to expose his crimes and free the Alliance. Some of their successes to defeat Wade include stopping him from mining on a defenseless planet and freeing political prisoners from his maximum security prison. Wade even bad mouths the Voltron Force because they are the pilots but not him out of jealously. Using a cordite bullet to take control of Voltron, Wade interfaces with it and christens it "Wadetron" while attacking a city nearby. Though his plan failed and he is finally arrested for his crimes, Wade learns of his mental link to Kala and is later freed by her as he allows himself to be assimilated into her Lider RoBeast body so he can use its ability to fuse with Voltron. At the end, Wade was defeated. Vince tells Wade that he was never meant to be part of Voltron and he never will.
- Dudley: Exclusive to Voltron Force, he is a kid from Earth who is "Voltron's biggest fan". When the Voltron cadets came to Earth, he showed them his outstanding collection of Voltron franchise, but they soon grew tired of it and left. Taking the act as a mockery of his collection, he attacked them with his Voltron replica (complete with limited edition Blazing Sword), but the cadets formed Awesometron and defeated him. He then stated they were true Voltron cadets.
