Top Ten Best Voltron: Legendary Defender Characters
The Top Ten
Whenever I watch a new show, I immediately find who my favorite character is and I was not at all disappointed with choosing Keith! He is such a fantastic character with great development, struggles that are relatable (Lance has some really relatable ones too by the way), family issues that he tries to deal with, and really well fleshed out relationships with his team members. He is awkward around others, has trouble working with people rather than fighting them, has a temper, and deep at his core is a lonely little boy trying his best to find a place in this world without either of his parents guiding him. I feel that while no one will ever be as great and dynamic a character as Zuko is, I know that Keith is close behind him. Keith is such a great character in plenty of ways, and I am so happy to see that he is at the top of this list! And just so you know, Hunk is my second favorite! I mean come on people! Show the boy some love!
I relate the most to Keith! His character is so well put together and something I would never expect from DreamWorks. He may be a jerk sometimes but he has been through a lot.
I really don't have a big reason other then I love the way dreamworks built his character and the way his character is so much like me. I agree with the list of characters a lot. Overall he is my smol bean that is just to awesome not to love!
I feel like Keith deserves to be the best he's through a rough past
Keith is a great character and has a lot of relatable traits. He’s also my precious cinnamon roll.
Lance, I admit, was really annoying in the beginning. Just being there, hovering around and constantly flirting with girls. But as the show continued, you saw a more sensitive, considerate side to him that we can all real are to. He grew as a person and I believe he could really make a great leader if he wanted to.
My boi lance is quirky, funny and sweet. He cares about his friends and is seriously relatable. For some reason he reminds me of Keith, but just a bouncier more precious version.
He needs A LOT more recognition. Most relatable 10/10, also lots of character development from being selfish and childish to mature, I also love allurance.
Ever since I first saw him I knew he's be my favorite, and no not just because he's hot lol.
He's amazing and a well-designed character. Better than Keith in my opinion.
Lance is a highly underrated character. He acts like the flirty jokester, but we see scenes where he's homesick (and one where he's crying! ), yet he pushes all his insecurities and doubts of ever returning home aside for the sake of the team. That deserves some respect. His self-deprecating modesty under all the ego-boosting comments is truly remarkable and I don't see why he isn't appreciated more.
Pidge has a wonderful backstory and even better character development. I enjoyed watching her grow throughout the series, and the scenes with her family really showed how much she's changed since then. I mean, the girl was willing to completely hide her identity, sneak into a space program, and lie to countless people just because she 'had a feeling' that her brother and dad were still alive! That takes guts. Would you travel across the universe for family members who may not even be still alive? Well, Pidge decided to without hesitation. It was so interesting watching her struggle through it all, from deciding between trying to find her brother or staying with Voltron, to what she did when she thought Matt was dead. She is a beautifully written character, and certainly my favorite one!
Katie/Pidge is just so cute and tiny and smart and kinda funny and like her personality.She just so small!
Pidge doesn't get enough respect for half the stuff she does. Like I could stand here all day, and still not be able to list all the things she's done to help the team, pull them out of a pinch, or upgrade Voltron. Not to mention Pidge is so cute >.<
Great to see a smart, strong female lead in a show for all ages! Love her, not to mention what a great example she is! Not even I have the guts to go all the way across the universe for my family.
My overworked, abused, small, adorable, space dad... He owns my heart.
He's cute with that puff of white hair.He's also a great and responsible leader unlike Keith although Keith''s leadership and team effort changed throughout the series so bravo for him. though Shiro deserves to be at the top
Very complex character who I can relate to the most out of the five Paladins.
Number 1 daddy
He's intelligent, graceful, and eventually tragic. He's a fantastically written character as well, and he's one of those characters that even if you dislike them, you can't help but respect them.
Honestly, he has such great character potential, and he is not boring to watch!
He's a very tragic character, and his deceptive nature keeps one on one's toes. Having both Galran and Altean blood makes him quite an interesting character, as having traits from each seem to be both a benefit and a hindrance, depending on the situation.
He was a very interesting character, I would say an 'Loki of Voltron'.
His actions were engaining to watch and he could be very convincing too, wish he stayed a little longer.
Also who can resist that L'Oréal Paris hair?
He's a precious boi that deserves the world
This bOI is KING
Give HIM YoUR Love Folks
How is this dude not first, I mean COME ON
Hunk is probably the best character(in my opinion) because he is just so friendly and sweet plus he can make some great food.
I had a love-hate relationship with Allura. I'm Really sad that she died at the end cause her and Lance were so cute together! But sometimes she could be annoying and I didn't really like the fact that she became a paladin of Voltron. I liked it better when she was just in the castle.
Mm I didn't hate her but she's kind of... You know the Piper McLean archetype? Yeah.
Whoever said she needs to get killed off, I hate you. She's such a great character!
I've never seen this show but I'm voting for her specifically because my friend told me not to
I love my tiefling witch please love me back Haggar I LOVE YOU SO MUCH
Honerva's still my favourite character
He is a funny and overall great character that brings light to ever situation. Whilst I do like the other characters nothing can beat Coran Coran the gorgeous man!
CORAN CORAN THE GORGEOUS MAN(Pidge, Lance, and Keith are amazing, too, but that's my favorite quote so how could I pass up the opportunity? )
CORAN CORAN THE GORGEOUS MAN!
(Actually I like Keith, Pidge, or Lance, but I really wanted to say that)
He is the heart of the team
Zarkon is literal bae
Who is this guy, God or Devil.
Madara/Thanos (voice actor and looks).BEUTIFUL SON.
Ahhh ya I love Zarkon lick me daddy
He honestly... At first - Meh, then when pidge finds him it's just - wAIT A MINUTE! Urr? You can't be that meh child? You're Hot!
When watching Matt it goes from
He's a king put him higher!
YOUU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL! That moment made me uncomfortable for two months after season 4 came out because Allura belongs with Lancey Lance (no offense to Klance shippers I have nothing against you and some of my best friends are Klance shippers and this is just my opinion) but now it makes me crack up every time. Plus if I had a big brother I would want him to be like Matthew mah Boi
She's Keith's badass mom
The mother of Keith Kogane in VLD
Klance is such a good character, I ship him with Kaltenecker
The ships have won
Don’t know why this is on here, but voted it anyway.
Just always tampers with their shaky logic
She didn't deserve it
THE FREAKEN GOAT
Uuhh I love Bii-Boh-Bi! He's one of those characters you think is so cute and funny but you don't know why!
Bii-Boh-Bi is adorable... I love him.
BII BII BOH BI BII BOH BII BOH BI BOH BOH
"Bii-Boh-Bi, BII-BOH-BI" - Lance
I love my superstitious noodle.
He is absolutely hilarious
Only the most wife-material character
Ezor is hands down best character. She’s so cute and so bouncy and happy. But I did also really like that scene when we got to look at her more vulnerable side after Lotor killed Narti. I’m really glad she got a happy ending with Zethrid.
She saved Keiths frigging life in season five. What more do you need?
Oh, and I’m pretty sure she’s, like, Keith’s sister or something.
Get out Lance! He belongs to Keith
I totally Ship Shay and Hunk!
Oh gosh... I love this character to death even though he didn't have a whole lot of screen time. What is better than AJ playing an awesome character (Lotor) then coming back and playing another awesome character (Griffin)?
He hawt, how can I not?
ROMELLE’S YOUNGER BROTHER AND MY CHILD, HE’S SO SMART AND DESERVES LOVE!
She is great.
In my fifty chapter fanfic, my fursona, GrimmRose, was by far the best character. Don’t know why they aren’t already on the list.
They are just so cute. They are so fuzzy and are Pidge’s lil friends who love abd support her and live in her room.
He’s a great paladin
Even after his humiliating defeat, he stood by the Galra empire and defended his post, fighting til the end. His technique is flawless
Because it’s flown by the first beat character in Voltron and then soon the second.
Red Lion because it’s honestly my favourite colour out of all of them and my two favourite people go fly it
