Here is a possible example for the difference keyword:

*** Settings ***
Library           Collections

*** Test Cases ***
Difference of lists
    @{list1}=    Create List    test1    test2    test3    test4
    @{list2}=    Create List    test1    test2    test3    test4    test5
    @{list3}=    Create List    test4    test3    test1    test2
    ${diff_list}=    List Difference    ${list1}    ${list2}
    Log Many    @{diff_list}
    Should Be Equal As Strings    ${diff_list}    ['test5']
    ${diff_list}=    List Difference    ${list1}    ${list3}
    Log Many    @{diff_list}
    Should Be Equal As Strings    ${diff_list}    []

        Remove Values From List    ${new_list}    ${item}
    END
    RETURN    ${new_list}
