What about the bromance between hunk and Keith? Or Allura and Hunk?

I’ll go with Hunk and Keith this go around because there’s a lot more source material. I could speculate on Allura and Hunk, but yeah, here we go. 

(Voltron Spoilers Ahead)

While Hunk and Keith don’t have a ton of interaction, what they do have is important. 

As early as the second episode, Hunk is shown to be extremely affectionate, and though Keith later states he’s ‘not much of a hugger’, he doesn’t lash out or get aggressive or even shy away when Hunk hugs him.  

(This is the face of someone who doesn’t get enough hugs)

I think this may have been where Keith began to consider the team itself as a possible ‘found family’, as he doesn’t bristle at these comments. If anything, Keith’s response is fond, and he doesn’t move to quickly disengage from contact. (I mean, who would? Hunk seems to be an excellent hugger.) He looks genuinely happy here.

Hunk is one of those people that others are simply comfortable to be around, even someone as prickly as Keith. 

At the party in the castle, Hunk makes Keith laugh, something we don’t see at any other point in the series. This is right after Keith spews Nunvil everywhere, which could have easily been used against him, even in a ‘playful’ way, but instead:

Hunk screams, ‘my eyes’ making Keith think for a split second that something is wrong (that is definitely an ‘oh crap, what did I do?’ look on his face) before proceeding to goof off, creating this frankly precious scene afterwards.

While the princess may not approve of her Paladins goofing off in the face of the coming danger, I think it’s very good for Keith to have someone to take the edge off of things. 

Even though Hunk is best friends with Lance, and has likely heard plenty of barbs against Keith due to the whole ‘rivalry’ thing, he never teases Keith for his actions or lack of understanding.

We make a big joke about Keith not ‘getting’ the Voltron cheer, and whether there is any intentional trolling of Lance going on or not, Hunk sides with Keith in the interaction. Thanks to Hunk, Keith fits in with the two of them. This is opposed to an alternate scenario I can easily think of, in which someone (perhaps not Hunk, because I can’t see him being like this) scoffs at Keith’s reaction to Lance’s cheer or even laughs at Keith for any number of responses. It would be so easy to push him to the edge of their friend group, to exclude him or make him feel just the wrong side of unwanted, but none of this happens. 

Also, look at them, being all concerned about Lance’s possible impending death. I could pretty much assure you that Keith wouldn’t be there right then if someone (Hunk) weren’t actively including him (words from a fellow introvert).

I would like to point out that despite their friendship, these two are very different, perhaps more so than Lance and Keith, and yet have none of the toxicity. 

Where Hunk tries to comfort and encourage the Balmerans, Keith expresses doubt and a more pessimistic outlook of the situation. Perhaps we should label it ‘realistic,’ considering how bad things actually were. He doesn’t say Hunk’s approach is stupid, just that he’s not sure he believes it.

When Hunk pets the Balmera in relief and affection, all of the others think he’s being a bit odd, but when Keith questions him, he’s completely undeterred. Even if Keith thinks he’s being a dork, there’s no aggression to their interaction, and the scene just highlights Hunk’s good and kind-hearted nature. 

Another clear opposition is in their responses to conflict. Hunk is ready to run for safety with the Arusians, while Keith immediately is raring to fight, and isn’t afraid to drag a man twice his size along with him. (Also, what kind of upper body strength? Hunk is not helping him here.) 

A scene I found particularly amusing is this one:

Keith has absolutely no room to tell someone else to calm down, yet he does. It’s a flip of their usual dynamic, where Keith is the one that needs tempering. I wonder how much of Hunk Keith is mirroring here (though he does immediately recommend going in shooting, while I doubt Hunk would.)

A final thing I’d like to point out is that the relationship between Hunk and Keith is very important to Hunk, and he assumes it is to Keith as well. When Keith is being uncharacteristically ‘cold’, making a decision with his head rather than impulsively, Hunk calls him out on it. Not only does he call him on it, but he determines that, in order to make Keith think right again, asking him if he’d ‘leave (Hunk) behind’ would work. 

It may be an outgrowth of his own way of approaching things, like how Hunk avidly fought to help Shay, despite things cropping up in the way of that, but Hunk makes it very personal. Hunk believes that while Keith may be ready to leave Allura behind in this moment, that he and Keith are close enough that emotionally things would be different if it were him. He also sounds like he’d be hurt quite a bit if Keith were to say he’d leave him too. 

All in all, even though it’s not focused in on, it’s pretty clear that Keith and Hunk have grown close since they met during Shiro’s rescue. Hunk’s warm, open personality contributes heavily to this, and I believe Keith finds a bit of social safety when he’s with Hunk. It’s easy and okay to have fun and relax at the expense of no one, and Hunk makes it simple to do, even in the presence of someone he’s normally bickering constantly with. 

Hunk fulfills his mandate as the emotional support for Voltron in his interactions with Keith, and Keith in turn may help drag Hunk out of his cautious shell (or join him on days he doesn’t feel like interacting with some of the more excitable members of the group.) I absolutely love their dynamic.
