Trivia:
Pidge, who was a member of the Lion Voltron Force, had a brother named Chip, who was part of the Vehicle Voltron Force.

This is also why the antagonists in both series were known as belonging to one race, the Drules, in the American version; while "Kikô Kantai dairugger XV encountered them only after they began a planet search, the Vehicle Voltron Force were always watching out for them (and the Far Universe inhabitants were mentioned as being a part of their empire in the first season).See more »

This show was the best!, 23 April 1999
Author: Jdawgg from Massachusetts

I loved this show back in my youth. I would never miss an episode. I am pretty sure there was a movie made about this too. I remember having all the action figures and being obsessed with this cartoon. In my humble opinion this is the best cartoon made post 1980.
