|This article is about the lion as it appears in Voltron: Legendary Defender-related interpretations. For a list of other meanings, see Blue Lion (disambiguation).|
The Blue Lion is one of the components of Voltron, serving as the right leg of the giant robot. Its current Paladin is Allura, who was chosen to take the mantle after its former pilot Lance became Paladin of the Red Lion. The Blue Lion was the first of the five lions to be found, and reflected Lance's personality of a hyper and fun-loving person. The Blue Lion is also a large lion, not as large as the Black Lion, but larger than the Red and Green Lions, and approximately the same size as the Yellow Lion. However, it remains a long-range targeting lion.
The Blue Lion uses a tail laser and the laser in its mouth to destroy targets. The tail laser is much more reliable and focused, while the laser in its mouth is wider and has much more power.
It was later discovered that the Blue Lion has a sonic cannon that can be formed on the Lion's back. Underwater, the blast of this weapon is extremely painful to aquatic lifeforms. The sonic cannon can also be used as a sonic sensor to map out areas, directing sound waves at a location and then presumably receiving them when they bounce back similarly to echolocation.
- Lance refers to the Blue Lion as "beautiful" once, an adjective most often used with females.
- The original Blue Paladin was Blaytz from Nalquod.
- While not seen in-series, the comics show that if Blue and Yellow Lion activate their bayard ports together the shoulder cannon turns blue and fires freeze rays.
