Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this 1980s anime series features plenty of cartoon violence -- including explosions, aircraft crashes, robotic electrocution, and extensive falls -- little of which results in visible/obvious injury and most of which is relatively benign. Characters always resort to using force against their enemies (who want to round up and enslave unsuspecting victims, turning them into a battalion of warriors). There's plenty of mutual respect and cooperation within the Voltron force, and although the lone female character is slightly overemotional at times, she's an integral part of the team's success.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Cartoon violence includes exploding missiles, aircraft crashes, robotic electrocution, and falls from great heights. No one is explicitly said to be dead; characters usually disintegrate into nothing or lie still in a jumbled heap on the ground.

Social Behavior

Violence and force are the only means to an end as good and evil battle each other. Of the legion of good warriors, only one is a woman, and while she's respected among her peers, she's often overly emotional, dissolving into tears for no apparent reason.


Vintage Voltron merchandise isn't readily available in stores today, but it was big in the '80s.
