- This article is about the 2017 event. For similar titled events, see Roblox Universe.
Roblox Universe (2017) was a sponsored event which began on July 27, 2017, and ended on August 10, 2017. It sponsored the Netflix animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender, like the previous year's event of the same name. The event held seven prizes: four accessories plus three gear items, which were obtainable in the games TNT Rush, Moon Tycoon, and Flood Escape. If users earned each prize before the end of the event, they would receive an exclusive back accessory on August 15.
When a menace of untold evil threatens to rule the galaxy, a courageous group of galactic heroes must call upon Voltron to restore peace to the cosmos. Collect the Bayards and end Prince Lotor's ascent before it begins in these Roblox games below to win exclusive virtual prizes from now until August 10! And while you're out saving the universe, be sure to watch the exciting new season of DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender on Netflix on August 4!

(Awarded on August 15)
- On the first day of this event, there was a chance that you would not be awarded Hunk's Energy Cannon. The game would think you already owned it, so it wouldn't do the event again, meaning you would not get rewarded the prize. Later, Roblox sent out an apology message to users who experienced this error and gave them the Energy Cannon.
- There was a leaked Voltron Hood that would've been an event prize but it was moved to the Voltron Robot Buliding Contest.
- Despite being a sponsored event, this was enjoyed by most players.
- During February 2018, players were still able to obtain the Top of the Universe hat in TNT Rush since the developers haven't disabled the badge for the item.
- A few weeks later, a lot of users started discovering these glitches. Red Penguin Productions later patched the glitches in TNT Rush.
- 2018's Universe event had a similar universe-related top hat: the Hat of the Void.
