The Green Lion has an inquisitive personality and needs a pilot of intellect and daring.


The Green Lion is the Lion that forms the left arm of Voltron. The current Green Paladin who pilots the Lion is Pidge.


The exact origin of the Green Lion is unknown. It can be assumed it was created at least ten thousand years ago after King Alfor created the Black Lion from the material found in the comet that crashed into Zarkon's home planet. Its previous Paladin is currently unknown. After Zarkon's betrayal of Alfor, the Lions were scattered and the Green Lion was hidden on the Green Planet for ten thousand years.

Weapons & Abilities

The Green Lion is highly adaptable to working with new technology, as Pidge has installed a cloaking device in it reverse-engineered from the invisible maze of the Castle of Lions.[3] This allows the Lion to turn invisible and perform stealth missions undetected by enemies. She has also temporarily used the Lion to power a functional junk satellite while trapped in a trash nebula.[4] The Lion's arsenal includes the standard Mouth Cannon and Tail Laser for long range combat, as well as a dual-bladed Jaw Blade for close-combat that can be tossed like a boomerang.[5] It is not known what ability is unlocked when the Lion is combined with the Green Bayard after Voltron is formed, but the Green Lion is the designated wielder of Voltron's shield during combat.[6]

The Green Lion has an affinity with the element of forest. It is able to unlock a Vine Cannon (Also called a Soul Surge Cannon.) on its back that can make plant life grow on any target it hits, binding enemies with vines.

Like all Lions, the Green Lion possesses some measure of sapience. It has rushed to shield Pidge from damage with its body while no one was piloting it.[6] Through her mental connection to the Green Lion, Pidge is able to understand its suggestions on the next course of action during a battle.



  • The Green Lion never had a cloaking device until it was installed by Pidge.[3]
  • Pidge refers to the Green Lion as a girl.[4]
  • According to Playmates Toys, the gun that shoots vines is called a "Soul Surge Cannon".[1]
