The Paladins of Voltron.

The Paladins of Voltron pilot the Lions of Voltron and are equally warriors as they are pilots. Each Paladin wears uniform armor and wields a weapon device known as a Bayard, and pilots a Lion whose Quintessence mirrors their own.

Lions Edit

Each Voltron Lion comprises a part of Voltron. The Lions and Paladins are color-coded to match each other. When formed as Voltron, the Paladins pilot the giant robot in unison.

The Lions and known Paladins are as follows:

Armor Edit

The armor consists of body armor worn over a space suit, and a helmet that allows communication between Paladins, the Castle of Lions, and Allura's earrings[1] when not piloting a Lion. The helmet's visor can also send a video feed to the Castleship and other Paladins[2] and expand to cover the entire head of the Paladin to supply breathable air in conditions where there is none.[3] The armor is equipped with a jetpack to allow for brief sustained flight[2], and it is possible for the Paladin to summon an energy shield using the armor.[3]

Bayard Edit


The default form of the Bayards.

Bayards, the weapons of the Paladins, can be stored inside the Paladin armor and summoned at will by the Paladin. Each Bayard takes a form suitable for the Paladin such as a blade or gun, but can be willed into other forms.[4] Like the armor, a Bayard can also be used to summon an energy shield for guarding against attacks.[4] When the Lions have formed Voltron and a Bayard is inserted into the control console of a Lion, it acts as a key to unlock a large, powerful weapon for Voltron to wield, such as a saber when the Red Bayard is inserted into the Red Lion.

The notable form of the Bayard for each current Paladin is as follows:

  • Black Paladin: Shiro
    • Black Bayard: Unseen, multiple forms when wielded by Zarkon.
    • Voltron Ability: Blazing Sword
  • Red Paladin: Keith
    • Red Bayard: Katar
    • Voltron Ability: Saber
  • Green Paladin: Pidge
    • Green Bayard: Grappling Hook
    • Voltron Ability: Shield
  • Yellow Paladin: Hunk
    • Yellow Bayard: Cannon
    • Voltron Ability: Shoulder Cannon
  • Blue Paladin: Lance
    • Blue Bayard: Rifle
    • Voltron Ability: Unknown

Trivia Edit

  • The Bayards may be a reference to the legend of Bayard, a horse that would adjust to the size of its riders.
  • The Paladin code states that a Paladin must put their team member's safety above their own.[5]
