Voltron in Comics

Plot Bunnies!

Plot bunnies are those moments that fanfic writers grab onto that spur their imaginations to give birth to more and more ideas, plots soon breeding like, well, rabbits!

You will often see repeating themes in fanfictions, some come from the show, others were born in the world of fanfiction. This is a list of the most common ones that come from the canon and where to find them.

Do note, some of the information given in the show is very contradictory, distances, planet names and even some character names change episode to episode so that grants you a lot of creative freedom for your own interpretations of the Voltron Universe. And of course just because something was in the show does not mean it has to be so in your story. Having creative fun coming up with your own realities and even why somthing may have been misrepresented in the show can make for a great fic.

The hope is that fanfic writers will find this list useful to help them find where those themes that are often seen repeatedly FanFiction originated from.

Look for a more complete listing of bunnies in my Episode Guides. This list of most commonly used bunnies will continue to grow as I revisit the old episodes.

Bunnies From Other Sources

Keith's name is Kogane

Akira Kogane was Keith's name in the original GoLion series. That name was never used in the original 80's shows and is why many early fictions based on the 80's cartoon will often use different last names as there never was one given and access to GoLion was virtually nonexistent. Voltron in comics resurrected Kogane from the canon and it is now also used as his last name in the new Voltron Force series. It's only in been in the later years that it has become accpted as his offical name in the fandome.

Pidge is Descended from Ninjas!

Think that's from Voltron Force? Nope, that's from the original show GoLoin! GoLion Ep 3, A Ghost and the Five Keys.

Lion Bonding with the Pilots:

Seen in Devils Due Comics while piloting the lions they connect with them mentally and can speak with each other telepathically.

Keith was Engaged:

Keith was engaged but his fiancee was killed as seen in the Devils Due Comics.

Mice are Cybernetic:

First appears in Devils Due Comic Series Continues in Voltron Force TV show.

You mean theses scoundrels work for the Princess? You’re nothing but a bunch of hoodlums!”

“Princess… Why did you have to be a Princess?”

"Romelle, how I long to share my dreams with you. Ah, but I am only a pilot"

"Keith said he got lost in the dark."

"Your in love but he won’t say it because he's just a pilot."
