  • Notes

    • Sven has the ability to blind-fight, closing his eyes and mentally attuning his other senses to detect and fight an opponent, even when his eyes betray him as to their location.

    • Sven has experience wielding and fighting with a sword.

    • The episode of King of Beasts GoLion used to create this episode of Voltron is titled "Death of Shirogane the Hero". In that episode Honerva (Haggar in Voltron.) kills Blue Lion pilot Takashi Shirogane (Sven in Voltron.) with the help of a Deathblack Beastman (Robeast in Voltron.). The final scene of that episode is of Shirogane's funeral and the surviving members of the GoLion Team (Voltron Force in Voltron.) crying and angry with themselves for letting this happen. Later in Voltron Sven makes a return, but in GoLion the character is actually Ryou Shirogane, Takashi's younger brother.
