Voice Cast

See: List of 3Below episodes


  • Steve and Eli from Trollhunters have "major roles" in the series (especially since Steve is Aja’s love interest and Eli took a photo of their alien selves).[2]
  • Since the series focuses more on the side characters from the first installment, Jim, Claire, Toby, AAARRRGGHH!!! and Blinky have "minor roles" in this series. In Part Two of the series, Toby and AAARRRGGHH!!! had major roles.
    • With events coinciding with the end of Trollhunters, most of the main cast makes a cameo at least once. Including Jim several times, both in and out of his armor and in his old look.
  • Part One of 3Below takes place during Part Three of Trollhunters
    • One of the episodes of Part One features a crossover between the main casts of Trollhunters and 3Below.
    • Another shows the other side of the Trollhunters episode "In Good Hands" the siblings introductory episode in the meta-series. Literally called "Lightning in a Bottle", it is a complete 180 in the point of view of Aja and Krel, demonstrating how odd the Trollhunters can seem without context.
    • Several events from Trollhunters also get further explanation.
    • There are also many references of the Trollhunters world. {See List of References}
  • Terms for units of time on Akiridion-5 differ from those on Earth, but are equivalent to the following:
    • Sekton(s) = second(s)
    • Mekron(s) = minute(s)
    • Horvath(s) = hour(s)
    • Delson(s) = day(s)
    • Wardon(s) = week(s)
    • Parson(s) = month(s)
    • Kelton(s) = year(s)
