    • Coran explains Voltron's origin in this episode. In King of Beasts GoLion it is unknown who or what created GoLion. He was a sentient robot who travelled through space. He fought and easily defeated all manner of space creatures who challenged him. Then suddenly the Goddess of the Universe appeared to GoLion and tried to convince him to use his great power to fight for peace and justice. GoLion tried to attack the Goddess. Angered by his arrogance the Goddess broke him into five robotic lions. The lions then crash landed on Planet Altea (Arus in Voltron.).
