  • Skilled Marksman: Lance is the best sharpshooter and marksman of the Voltron Paladins, possessing great skill with his signature rifle. He's been able to score critical shots with a limited amount of time to aim, and has shown great precision with his marksmanship.
  • Bond with the Blue Lion: Lance and the Blue Lion have a very strong bond with each other. This allows the Blue Lion to telepathically suggest courses of action to Lance while in combat.


  • Paladin Armor: The standard armor worn by Paladins of Voltron. The armor protects Lance from harm, allows communication with the other Paladins, and is equipped with a jetpack for sustained flight, along with an energy shield to block attacks. The helmet produces oxygen when worn, allowing Lance to function normally underwater or in a vacuum, and the bracers can fire small lasers or project holograms of Lance.
  • Bayard: The Bayards are the Paladins' main weapons when on foot. Each one takes the form most well-suited for its Paladin. Lance's takes the form of a rifle, which fires energy blasts strong enough to blow through a Galra sentry in one shot. The rifle also has options for rapid-fire blasts, or stronger, single shots


  • In the original Voltron series, Lance was the pilot of the Red Lion, instead of the Blue Lion
  • Jeremy Shada has stated that Lance is in his late teens, around 16 years old[1]
