Gurren Lagann (2007), known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (天元突破グレンラガン Tengantoppa Gurenragan, literally "Heaven-Piercing Crimson Lotus Enveloping Face"), is a Japanese mecha anime television series created by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It takes place in a fictional future where Earth is ruled by the Spiral King, Lordgenome, who forces mankind to live in isolated subterranean villages. These villages have no contact with the surface world and a few of them with no other villages, and are under constant threat of earthquakes. One day, a small 14-year old named Simon and his best friend, Kamina, get their lives changed forever when a giant bull-like mecha and a red haired woman with a rifle called Yoko fall off a hole in their village's roof.

- It wasn't going well, my confidence was shut and i thought we were heading in the wrong direction, i freaked out and kept asking myself "Why did my Dad make it up to the surface and i can't?". Honestly i was just acting tough. Everyone was whining and they stopped digging. I guessed it was finally the end of my road. But Simon, he kept on drilling away. His drilling let me put on a brave face. By dumb luck, he broke through that last boulder right then. We got really lucky, but i have faith in all that luck, and in Simon, who brought us that luck in the first place. Whenever I feel timid and weak, or feel like i'm losing confidence, I picture the sight of his back all hunched over, digging away. I think to myself, "I refuse to be left at by that back." Listen, Simon. Never forget this. Believe in yourself. Not in the Simon that i have faith in, not in the Kamina that you believe in either. Believe in the Simon who believes in you.(Episode 11)

- Snapped out of it yet, Rossiu? You know, I was once belted like that too. Everybody makes mistakes, it's to be expected, but, when you do make a mistake, you should be slugged by someone. I mean, there is no need to punish yourself. At the time, you might think that it's a mistake that you can never undo, even if it is, if we kick and scream and fight like Hell, we'll move forward a little bit. I was taught, to Believe in the Me that believes... in Myself. That's probably how it should be, at least that's what i think. You had the courage and strength to try to do something that I never could have done, no matter what. What's so terrible about that? Come on, Rossiu, I need you. (Episode 23)

It's the tomorrow that we choose for ourselves, a tomorrow that we choose out of all the infinite Universes, We'll fight our way through! We'll keep fighting and protect the Universe!

- There's no such thing as a guardian who... kills his charges! ARE YOU SO BLIND THAT YOU CAN'T SEE THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?! (Episode 15)
- If people's faith in you is what gives you all of your strength then, I'll believe in you with every fiber of my being! SO PLEASE, PLEASE WIN! (Episode 15)
- Farewell, my Father. I will head towards tomorrow. (Episode 15)
- Attention, Humans of Earth, hear me now. We the Anti-Spiral Race of the Universe, have determined that Humans have achieved Spiral Power Danger Level 2, and are a menace. We hereby activate the Humanity Extermination System. I will say again. The Humanity Annihilation System has been activated. You are not allowed to leave Earth or be released. (Messenger!Nia. Episodes 17-18)
- No matter how deeply you probe my body, you'll never understand! (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- Then you may as well give up, because you'll never be able to defeat them! He will come. You can be sure of that. (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- Simon, you've come all this way so you could finally do what you had to do, right? (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- The Human spirit is infinite! I've staked EVERYTHING, on its greatness too! (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- Yes. Let's go home! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- I love you so, Simon.... (Last words, Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- From the Black Siblings, Kittan is here! Sorry for keeping you waiting. (Episode 7)
- THE NAME'S KITTAN, YOU JERK!! DID YOU FORGET ABOUT ME ALREADY?! (Episode 7)
- I'M NOT COPYING ANYONE!!! (Episode 7)
- Why, you little... DON'T GET TOO FULL OF YOURSELF!! YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAD HELD IT TOGETHER, KAMINA WOULDN'T BE DEAD RIGHT NOW!!! (Episode 9)
- Neither am I! KITTAN STINGEEEEEEEEEERRR!!! (King Kittan impales the Gunman with his upper spikes) Now with this headsplitter from HELL!! HYAAAAH!! (Enemy Gunman gets ripped in half and explodes) Now THAT'S what i'm talking about. (Episode 9)
- The Spiral King threw away his own daugther?! That's one thing I WON'T STAND FOOOR!! (Episode 10)
- C'mon, he's a lost cause, he's turned into a spineless kid that's good for nothing but digging. He'd be better off going back to Giha Village. (Episode 11)
- Ah, C'mon! This is frustrating! SIMON AND YOKO ARE FIGHTING IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST! WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA OF NOT BACKING THEM UP?! LET ME FLY UP THERE AND KICK THEIR ASSES MYSELF! (Episode 13)
- It's not just the power of the Black Siblings we're gonna show 'em, IT'S THE POWER OF TEAM DAI-GURREN!!! (Episode 14)

- Ok, guys, all that's left now is to level Teppelin, SO LET'S- ehhhh... oh craaap... AAAAHHH!! (Episode 14)
- WOOHOO!! YOU DID IT, SIMON!! (Episode 15)
- SPACE SUNBEEEEEEEEEEEEAAM!!! (Episode 24)
- Show me a guy who ain't afraid of dyin'!"(Episode 25)
- When you're scared, it's all the more reason to move forward! (Episode 25)
- I won't say some showy crap like "Later, buddy" or something lame like that! I'LL BE SEEING YOU SOON, YOU BOZOS!! (Episode 25)
- I borrowed one of Gurren Lagann's drills as a good luck charm! And believe me, I'M GONNA PUT IT TO GOOD USE! (Episode 25 and Lagann-Hen)
- (wielding one of Gurren Lagann's drills) This is Simon's soul! Team Dai-Gurren's soul! Humanity's soul... and actually, it's MY SOUL! DO YOU SERIOUSLY THINK IT'S GONNA BE WIPED OUT BY THE LIKES OF YOUUUU?!! King Kittaaaan... GIGA... DRIIIIIILL BREEEEEEEEEEEAK!!!(Episode 25)
- So this is the power of the Spiral... Not bad, not bad at all... ha... hahahahahaha...(Last words, Episode 25 and Lagann-Hen)
- Still, you should be very careful. Good intentions can sometimes tempt good people to travel down the wrong path, just as it did in my village. (Episode 7) (Ironic, isn't it?)
- Simon, you have to calm down! If you keep on fighting this way YOU will be the one who dies this time! (Episode 9)
- You know, I wanna know why you people stay working in the Government. At every Council meeting all you do is kick back. IS THAT WHAT YOUR JOB IS?! Those who told us they couldn't handle the job and just left, WERE A LOT MORE HONEST! (Episode 17)
- You understand absolutely nothing. (Episode 17: You Understand Absolutely Nothing)
- Commander, please, it's not safe! It's not your job to go out and fight on the frontlines! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT?! (Episode 17)
- He didn't know what it was and yet he charged in, counter-attacked blindly and completely destroyed it! Rash doesn't begin to describe the Supreme Commander's actions! (Episode 17)
Now then, this time you're gonna tell me everything! Tell me all the secrets of this world. Wake up, Lordgenome! (Episode 18: Tell Me All The Secrets Of This World)
- We will survive by any means necessary (Episode 19)
- Oh, God, how far will you test us? (Episode 20)
- You must survive. (Episode 21)
- I can't hold a candle to him, in the end he overturned every plan set against him. (Episode 22)
- No, STAY AWAY!! (Episode 23)
- It's bad, but it'll take more than that to finish 'em! (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- Simon, do you read me? Simon! We're being contacted by one planet after another from across the galaxy! The freed Spiral Races are all sending us measages of joy and celebration! There are so many other like us out there... (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- If nothing else, i must compliment you, Human. For not knowing... WHEN TO GIVE UP!! This time it's really over. (Episode 2)
- You are stupid through and through, aren't you? It's not the number of faces, it's the level of skill! now DIE!! (Episode 3)
- IMPOSSIBLE!! (Episodes 3 and 12)
- KAMINA YOU BASTARD SON OF A BITCH!! (Episode 7)
- Take this, have it back. (Episode 8)
- Do you have the slightest idea, the depths of my SHAAAAME?! The humilliation of being a sole survivor, begging to take part in this battle, so that i might have a chance to face YOUUUUUUUU!!! (Episode 13)
- Why is there only a woman and a child here? WHERE DID KAMINA GOOOOOO?! (Episode 13)
- Are you telling me that he died back then? Kamina's dead? You're saying, that i've been losing to you? to a child?! (Episode 13)
- An insult done to me by a Gunman, will be repayed by my Gunman. That's how I roll, Human! (Episode 13)
- How can this be?! How can i be losing to a lowly human cub?! (Episode 13)
- Nicely dodged. As expected, Simon! (Episode 15)
- As you can see, I'm a whole new being today! I have a new body that needs no rest and can go on fighting... INDEFINITELY! I've become more than a Beastman! THIS PLACE WILL BE YOUR GRAVE!! (Episode 15)
- WHAT?! It... That's not possible... HOW CAN THIS BE?! Dammit, WHY CAN'T I DEFEAT HIM?! (Episode 15)
Ugh... Majesty... (Episode 15)
- You're screaming, aren't you, Enkidudu? Try for just a little longer! (Episode 17)
- Ergh!..gh.. Ghh? You're down for good. Thanks for putting up with my selfish demands. I'm very sorry. (Episode 17)
- Look over there, i was trying to protect them. That's right. All they wanted to do was live underground, there are some Humans who feel that way, you know? They believe in their hearts that their true home lies underground. That's why i decided to help them out. Except for where they're forced to live, aren't you doing exactly the same as the Spiral King? Aren't you, Simon? (Episode 17)
- I swear, It's never a dull moment with you around! (Episode 22)
- SIMON!! GOOOOOOO!!! (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- When you screw it in, give it a hard, maaanly twist. (Episode 2)
- Well i'm impressed. Hijacking a Gunman isn't something that ever even ocurred to us. Those boys are quite amusing, aren't they? (Episode 2)
- I can't miss out on something this interesting, can I? It could be that these two will change something. (Episode 3)
- Smarty Pants. (Referring to Rossiu) (Episode 7)
- Listen, when Gurren Lagann combines, it's accomplished by Lagann taking over all of Gurren's systems. That's Gurren Lagann's strength. That means that if Lagann can combine with Dai-Gunzan, it willll be able to take over IT'S systems. Lagann's power it's also linked to Simon's mental energy. Depending on his spirit... Are you paying attention, Simon? (Episode 7)
- SIMON, COME IN!! PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER!! (Episode 8)
- What in the world.... IT'S HAPPENIIING?! (Episode 15)
- Rossiu, did you forget? This girl's come all this way to give her father a piece of her mind. When a girl sets her mind on something, a good man is obliged to help her do it. (Episode 15)
- When objects revolve at a high speed, even if force is applied, the axis of revolution will always remain in a fixed position. This is one of the laws of the universe. That's right. The faster you spin, the faster you free yourself from Earth's gravity, and seek the heavens. (Episode 22)
- Boy, talk about overkill... (Episode 2)
- A CROSS COUNTER?! (Episode 3)
- Gurren Lagann has become a symbol of hope for humanity. More so than you could ever imagine. (Episode 7)
- Dai-Gurren, FULL SPEED AHEAD! (Episode 13)
- SUPER DIMENSIONAL ANCHOR!! I'VE GOT THE BEST WIFE IN THE UNIVERSE... SWING!! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)

- Slumber beneath the surface, you foolish species. This, is the fate of this world. (Gurren-Hen, prologue)
- It is said that the god who once created the world in seven days, created man on the sixth. (Episode 14)
- That is what makes them so terrifying. I sealed them down in the depths of the Earth, so they would never again take root on the Surface. (Episode 14)
- Ignorants, it is what allows them to fight. Pitiful... hm. (Episode 14)
- I see that you've somehow managed to arrive, Man of the Spiral. (Episode 15)
- Oh Viral, you poor little creature. The power I gave you isn't meant to be used to overcome the Humans. (Episode 15)
- To begin with, no Beastman will ever be a match against a human who has aquired the Power of the Spiral. Viral, it's true I gave you a new body that functions without needing rest and can never die, but it was not so you could fight Humans. It was so you could be a storyteller who would recount for all time the Victory of the Spiral King. (Episode 15)
- Stay where you are and Observe. Observe the fate of a foolish Human, and then, until the very end of time itself, tell of the futility of raising a rebellion against the Spiral King. (Episode 15)
- Nia. You're looking quite well, you do know I never expected to ever see your face again. (Episode 15)
- Hmhm... hmhmhmhm... HAHAHAHAHAHA, HAHAHAHAHAHA! Ignorance is such a frightening thing. You might believe yourselves to be fighting on the side of righteousness, but I am the one who is truly protecting this world. It is I, Lordgenome, who is the ultimate guardian of humanity. (Episode 15)
- This world that i have created is the only path to ensure humanity's survival. You and your friends have strayed from that path and I cannot allow that to continue. For humanity's sake, you must die. (Episode 15)
- The Spiral Power is strong within you. Yet you are unaware that such power leads to destruction. Allow me to teach you... And show you its futility. You are not the only one to possess the power of the Spiral. I will show you the awesome and terrible truth of real Spiral Power. Behold my Lazengann. (Episode 15)
- I WILL CRUSH YOU INTO DUUUUUUUUUST!!! (Episode 15)
- I shouldn't have trusted a Gunman... TO GET THE JOB DONE!! (Episode 15)
- What's wrong? Has all your Spiral Power run dry? (Episode 15)
- I haven't had this much fun in a long time, boy. Now, BACK INTO THE DIRT WITH YOU!! (Episode 15)
- I see, your Spiral Power has grown sufficient to outstrip my own. Hear this now, you will soon come to regret it. I will leave you with this warning: When the land overflows with a million apes the Moon shall become Hell's Messenger and completely destroy the world of the Spiral. (Episode 15)
- Nia, I know I don't deserve to be your father, but, you have done well. (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- I am no King! Just a simple warrior, the same as you are, Viral. (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- Simon! Leave this one to me. LAZENGANN... OVERLOOOOOOOAAAAD! (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- Do not grieve for me, daughter! My soul once drowned in a sea of despair and weariness but has reawakened! If this body can create a tomorrow for all Spiral life, I will gladly give it. (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- Just what i was... WAITING FOR!!! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- SIMON!! TAKE IIIIT!! (Last words, Episode 27, and Lagann-Hen)
- People ask us, "What are you?" "What is Life?" "What is the Universe?" They go to their graves, never learning the answers. Such is their fate. People ask us, "Why do We fight?" "Why do We kill?" "Why are We being overthrown?" They go to their graves, never learning the answers. Such is their happiness. (Gurren-hen, Prologue)
- You see beauty in struggling to the bitter end, a trait instinctive to those bewitched by the power of the Spiral. Neverthenless, that is an act which's been repeated time and time again, now follow the same fate as those Spiral Warriors... WHO CAME BEFORE YOU! (Episode 26, Lagann-Hen)
- Your actions are baffling, Irregular. Why do you resist us so? You were a virtual lifeform that was spliced into the genome of the Spiral race. When the remnants of that Spiral race rose up in rebellion against us, you would be awakened and become our messenger. That is your reason for being. The fact that you were born to and loved a Spiral Warrior is nothing more than a coincidence. There is nothing special or unique about you. It is quite a rare thing for a Messenger to be so reconsiderant. The reason behind your defiance, and the reason behind their abstinence, determining those could give us the key to exterminate all Spiral lifeforms. (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- We have no need to understand, we only need to know. (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- Impossible! Sentient lifeforms can't possibly escape from a Multi-Dimensional Labyrinth! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- Spiral Race! Is that all you... HAAAAAAAVE?! (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- HAHAHAHAHA! You waste your time. The Universe is under our complete control. Your chances of winning here are absolutely... ZERO!! (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- She is correct. We Anti-Spirals were once a Spiral Race like yourselves, but when we learned tat the evolution of Spiral Power would lead to the destruction of the Universe, we annihilated all those who possessed the power of the Spiral, and drove the few surviving lifeforms to the far corners of the Universe. We halted our own evolution, and locked ourselves away in this pocket Universe, on our homeworld we sealed away our bodies and any possibility of evolution! This form is the symbol of our determination! Foolish creatures, drunk on your Spiral Power! DO YOU POSSESS THE RESOLVE TO DO THAT?! WE DEFENDED THE UNIVERSE BY KILLING OUR FELLOW SPIRALS AND HALTING OUR OWN EVOLUTION!! DO YOU POSSESS THIS NEEDED FORTITUDE THAT IS ON PARALLEL WITH THAT, DO YOU?!! WE SAY NO!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO, NOT! AT! AAAAAALL!!! You possess neither Will, nor Resolve, NOR REASON!! YOU USE YOUR SPIRAL POWER TO SATISFY YOUR OWN DESIRES AND GROW DRUNK ON IT!! I'TS YOUR FUNDAMENTAL LIMITATION!! IT IS FOR THAT REASON, THAT WE MUST EXTERMINATE YOU!!!! (Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- You continue to struggle, even knowing what you know?! (Episode 27)
- Uuuuuuuugh... Such arrogance from a lowly species that is kept supressed by us, WE WILL MAKE YOU REGRET YOUR INSOLENCE!! INFINITY.... BIG BANG.... STOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRM!!!! BURN IN THE EVERLASTING HELLFIRE OF CREATION!! BE UTTERLY ANNIHILATED, DOWN TO THE VERY LAST SCRAP OF DNA!!! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- Your deaths will be for nothing! BEGONE!!! (Episode 27, Lagann-hen)
- Impossible! He allowed himself to undergo Quantum Breakdown so he could become one with the energy?! (Episode 27)
- How can this be?! Where are you drawing all of this power from?! (Episode 27)
- We can't believe it!! (Lagann-hen)
- THAT IS THE PATH THAT LEADS TO EXTINCTION!! WHY CAN'T YOU SEE THE PATHETIC LIMITATION OF THE SPIRAL RACES?!! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen)
- Interesting, in that case: ANTI SPIRAAAAL.... GIGA.... DRILL... BREEEEEEAK!!! (Lagann-Hen)
- Huh?! IMPOSSIBLE! NOTHING CAN RESIST OUR POWER!! (Lagann-Hen)
- You struggle in vain! (Lagann-Hen)
- If this is how it must be, protect the universe at all costs. (Last Words, Episode 27 and Lagann-Hen)
- Narama, ko no uchiu, karamatsu ma moreu. (Japanese version)
- Anti-Spiral: People ask themselves, "What are You?" "What is Life?" "What is the Universe?" They go to their graves, never learning the answers. Such, is their fate.
- Lordgenome: A vista I once saw. An unusual tranquility. Small hopes. (Referring to Earth) Take those away from a man, and he will stand up. The hope they hold within, as well as their place in evolution brings forth enormous power, and the man fights...
- Anti-Spiral: ...Thereby learning the meaning of "Despair".
- Anti-Spiral: People ask themselves, "Why do We fight?" "Why do We kill?" "Why are We being overthrown?" They go to their graves, never learning the answers. Such, is their happiness. (Gurren-Hen, Prologue)
- Simon: Bro, I think I'll be able to do the job with this.
- Kamina: Alright! Smash us into that big ugly mug! Let it feel the power of Team Gurren's mighty Drill!
(Simon squeezes Lagann's handles)
- Simon: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!
(Lagann's mouth expels a green light, its hands turn into drills)
- Kamina: Get going Simon, Bust through the heavens WITH YOUR DRILL!
- Both: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! (Gunman's club and right arm are obliterated by Lagann as it lifts the mecha with its thrusters' strength) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!
(Lagann pushes the Gunman through the holein the ceiling, the villagers are stunned at what just happened.The Beastman inside the Gunman screams in horror as Lagann flies to the surface while pushing him)
- Kamina: Adios Giha Village. We're going up to the Surface! The Surface i saw as a kid!
(Simon seems to be struggling, but after a few moments, he smiles.)
- All: HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! (The hole where Yoko and the Gunman fell explodes as Lagann rises up in the air)
- Simon: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAHHH!!! (Lagann tears the Gunman to pieces as it pierces the heavens) (Episode 1)
(Lagann leaves Littner, running so fast he leaves a big trail of dust, he opens his cockpit, revealing a very livid Simon, who is now so angry his eyes turned grey and lost their light)
- Simon: BROOO!!
- Kamina: Got here just in time, blood brother! (Kamina jumps into Lagann's cockpit)
- Simon: THEY DID IT, IT WAS THEM!! EVERY TIME THOSE THINGS CAUSE A TREMOR UP HERE IT ENDS UP AS AN EARTHQUAKE DOWN BELOW!!
- Kamina: So that's what they were!
- Simon: THESE GUYS KILLED MY MOM AND DAD!!
(Lagann keeps running, copying Simon's wrathful grimace as he does it)
- Kamina: Simon, glad to see you worked up, but don't be impatient. To win a fight, it takes guts, and a cool head.
- Kamina: Listen up. I'm gonna help myself to that pointy one.
- Simon: Huh?!
- Kamina: I bet i can get inside by going through the face in its belly. I need you to force it open.
- Simon: But can you operate it?
- Kamina: Well, how do you know how to pilot Lagann?
- Simon: I don't know. I grabbed these things and it all just sorta, flowed into me.
- Kamina: Well that's what I'll do.
- Simon: What?
- Kamina: You just need the old Fighting Spirit!
- Simon: Uhhh, i don't think so.
- Kamina: Whatever, just take us in!
- Simon:That doesn't sound very COOL HEADED! (Episode 2)
- Simon: It's hopeless.
- Yoko: Heh?
- Simon: It's no use anymore... C'mon, Bro, Let's give up!
(Yoko hits Lagann with her palm)
- Simon: Huh?
- Yoko: Take a good look. He gets up again and again, you see? And he'll keep doing it until you show up. Kamina said to you, "Don't believe in yourself, Just Believe in the Me that Believes in You", so how about it, Simon?
- Simon: (Unsure) I believe...
(Gurren gets up again)
- Simon: I believe...
(Simon's Core Drill starts glowing, illuminating Gurren's missing shoulderpad, and Yoko, as Lagann reactivates)
- Simon: I BELIEEEEEEVE!!!
(Lagann dissapears in a flash of green light.)
(Gurren stands before Enki, very battered and with a furious scowl)
- Viral: Oh? Getting up again, are we?
- Kamina: Ain't no way I'm gonna let myself get taken out by you!
- Viral: If nothing else, i must compliment you, Human.
(Gurren tries to punch Enki, but it dodges him)
- Viral: For not knowing... (Enki grabs Gurren by his hand, spins him arround and throws him) WHEN TO GIVE UP!!
(Gurren skids on the ground and hits a rock wall)
- Dayakka: KAMINA!!
- Redhead Littner soldier: He's no match to him!!
(Viral charges Enki's laser)
- Another Littner soldier: Look! It's glowing!
- Viral: This time it's really over. (Gurren's shoulderpad hits Enki in its helmet) What the...?!
(Lagann hits Enki in its ring from below, the beam fires harmlessly towards the air, Lagann lands in front of Gurren.)
- Kamina: Hah, what kept you, Simon?
- Simon: I'm scared, I'm so scared i can't stand it. BUT, I CAN'T STAND ARROUND WHILE YOU GET YOURSELF KILLED!!
- Kamina: Well put, Little Brother! It's time to break out the You-know-what! Are you ready to do this?
- Simon: The what?! Bro, what are you talking about?
- Kamina: You dumbass, What the hell else do you think I'm talking about? WE'RE GONNA COMBINE!!!
- Simon: We're gonna Combine?!
- Viral: They're gonna Combine?
- Dayakka, Tetsukan, and two other guys: They're gonna Combine?!
- Yoko: They're gonna Combine!
- Leeron: Aw, please, honey.
- Kamina: We'll never know unless we try, will we? EEAAAAAAHHHHGRRGH!!
(Gurren jams Lagann through his head, and straigthens him up)
- Kamina: You see that? (Simon is very confused, Lagann's drill just barely missed Kamina's head) Now we've got two faces too! Whaddaya think, Fuzzball? We're the sa same as you!
(Leeron is stunned at what Kamina just did, and Yoko is dissapointed, Viral is madder than before at Kamina's pure stupidity)
- Viral: You're stupid through and through, aren't you?
(Charges Enki's laser again as Lagann's eyes start glowing green)
- Viral: It's not the number of faces, it's the level of Skill! Now DIE!!
(Enki's beam fires, but is blocked by a Spiral Shield)
- Viral: IMPOSSIBLE!!
- Yoko: Gh... ghhh.... Kamina! Simon!
(As he absorbs Enki's laser beam, Lagann's Spiral Gauge rises, and the screens of both Gurren and Lagann are covered in green lines)
- Simon: mm.. It's incredible!
- Kamina: The hell? What's this?
(Gurren and Lagann combine, for real this time. Lagann straightens himself up, Gurren's arms and legs become longer and bulkier as Simon's Spiral Energy flows throughout the newly born Gurren Lagann)
- Simon: Wow, we were really able to Combine! You were right, Bro, You were right!
- Kamina: Sure looks that way, doesn't it?
(The Spiral shield fades away, and a cloud of dust is lifted, as Gurren Lagann walks towards Enki)
- Viral: Wait, how could you combine? You're mere Humans!
(Gurren Lagann and Enki's faces clash)
- Kamina: You liked that, General Fuzzball? We're as tall as you are now!
- Viral: Gh! GO TO HELL!!
- Kamina: Oh yeah? Well YOU FIRST!!
(Gurren Lagann and Enki's fists graze as they punch each other in the upper faces, releasing a yellow light that illuminates the valley)
- Dayakka: (Smiling) A CROSS COUNTER?!
- Kamina: Remember this, you Fuzzball! Combining is all about one man's Fighting Spirit slamming into ANOTHER!
(Gurren Lagann grabs Enki's upper head and crushes it with his hand, leaving only the helmet intact)
- Viral: AAAGH!!
(Gurren Lagann grabs the helmet)
- Kamina: A Combining of courage that sets a Man's soul on fire! (Lagann's eyes flash, as he turns the helmet red and its adornment gold) GURREN LAGANN!! JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM, FUZZBALL?! From here on, the name of this mecha, is GURREN LAGANN!!!
- Yoko: Gurren...
- Dayakka: Lagann!
- Leeron: Oh, pleeease...
(Enki unsheathes its swords)
- Viral: I can't believe i'm being forced to use my swords. I underestimated you, HUMAN!! (Charges forward, pointing his swords at Gurren Lagann)
- Kamina: I told you, the name is GURREN LAGANN!!!
(Two drills grow parallel to Gurren Lagann's right hand as he shatters Enki's swords with them)
- Viral: (Stares at his broken swords) Eh?! (Gurren Lagann kicks Enki in the face)
HWEEEEEGH!! What happened?! How could he suddenly become so powerful?! ALL HE DID WAS ATTACH THAT LITTLE GUNMAN! HOW CAN THIS BE?!
- Kamina: (Furious) YOU'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND, YOU FREAK!!
- Viral: Human SCUM!!!
(Enki opens its torso face, firing a lot of missiles)
- Kamina: No dirty tricks, you little-GAAH!!
- Yoko: KAMINA!! Uh..AAAHH!!! (Yoko is hit by a cloud of smoke)
(The smoke clears, revealing Gurren Lagann is unharmed)
- Dayakka: Unbelievable! He survived that attack!
- Yoko: Whoa, talk about tough!
- Leeron: I wonder if the big guy has a special energy field that neutralizes enemy attacks, or perhaps they really ARE special.
- Kamina: Where'd you go?! You son of a bitch!
- Simon: Hold up, Bro!
- Kamina: Now what?
- Simon: Chasing him is a bad idea. You two are in bad shape.
- Kamina: Simon?
- Simon: It's not 'cause i'm scared, well, i am, but that's not why i think we should stop now. It's so we can fight another day.
- Kamina: You know, that level head of yours is the only thing that keeps me alive.
- Simon: What?
- Kamina: Nevermind! I'm good! (Episode 3)
(Gurren runs towards Dai-Gunzan, and does a massive leap towards it, hitting the main deck, he keeps running really fast)
- Kamina: aaaaaaAAAAAHHHH!!
(Gurren jumps again, and crashes in the middle of the windows of the Dai-Gunzan's bridge, pushing his cockpit through his mouth and sending Kamina tumbling towards Lagann)
- Simon: Ghh. Ghhh... (Kamina falls on top of Lagann) UGH! UH?!
(Simon looks above him, noticing Kamina is on top of Lagann)
- Kamina: AARRGH, SIMON!! OPEN THE HATCH!!
(Kamina mo es his right arm, Simon opens the hatch, and is quickly horrified by what his Bro is about to do)
- Simon: AAH!
- Kamina: LET'S SEE YOU GRIT THOSE TEETH!!
(Punches Simon in the face so hard he sends boogers and tears flying in the air, snaps one of his teeth in half, and leaves him upside down. Kamina's right hand is smoking.)
- Simon: WAGH!!! (The scene repeats, from Kamina's perspective) AAGHH!! ughh.
(The dust clears)
- Simon: Ugh... why Bro? aghh...
- Kamina: Have you snapped out of it yet?
- Simon: (Confused) ugh... ghh?
- Kamina: I give you my word that if you ever start to doubt yourself, I'll come and belt ya one. (Points his finger at Simon) So don't worry, I'm right by your side. Just believe in yourself, Believe in the Simon that I have faith in.
- Simon: ugh... (Smiles) ghhh... Right! You've got it!
(Lagann's Spiral Gauge raises back to normal levels, Leeron's data shows Simon's no longer heartbroken, which allows him to fully synchronize and take over the Dai-Gunzan)
- Leeron: Yes, you're doing well! Very Well indeed, Simon! You're synchronizing steadily, Just a little Moore!
- Kamina: Hmm... (returns to Gurren's cockpit, puts on his cape and his shades) Aaahh... heh, you see? You could do it if you just- (A massive pillar of bluish light ebmerges from Dai-Gunzan's deck, piercing Gurren's cockpit) GAAAAAAAUUUAAAAAAAGGHH!! (Gurren gets blown into the air and a large explosion comes out of its body)
- Simon: BRO!! NO WAY!!
- Yoko: KAMINA!!
(As Gurren falls into the Dai-Gunzan's deck, Thymilph's Gunman, Byakko, flies out of the very large hole he madeon the floor)
- Thymilph: GAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You sad, pathetic little worm, you'll soon find that i won't hand over my Dai-Gunzan SO EASILY!!
- Kamina: Thymilph, Damn! I didn't see- OHH!!
(Gurren gets hit by its own sunglasses/boomerang midair, getting flung into the deck. The sunglasses end up stuck on the floor too, leaving a deep gash.)
- Viral: You forgot this. Have it back.
- Kamina: You... Son of a...
- Thymilph: Alkai Blade!! (Byakko's spear releases a cross-shaped energy beam, completely cutting off Gurren's right leg)
- Kamina: OWAAAGHH!!..
- Thymilph: You're a very tenacious man, but NO! THIS IS THE END FOR YOUUUUUUUUU!!! (Enkidu grabs Gurren, exposing its back, and Thymilph stabs Gurren so hard blue sparks start flying from its mouth, a massive V-shaped black and red shockwave tears the deck asunder and the spear goes through Gurren's cockpit and the left side of Kamina's torso, killing him)
- Kamina: DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!... (Dies)
- Yoko: (Completely horrified) uhh...uh... It can't be...
- Kittan, Dayakka, Jorgun and Balinbow: (Stunned silence. Kittan's pupils turn white out of pure horror at what just happened.)
(The dust clears, revealing Thymilph and Viral, standing victorious above the now inert Gurren. Meanwhile, in the camp, Gurren's vitals drop and dissappear completely, confirming Kamina is dead)
- Leeron: No way...
(Simon's pupils turn completely white out of pure horror, and starts sobbing incontrollably)
- Simon: No... BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
(Lagann's canopy lights up with Simon's scream. Its Spiral Gauge completely distorts into squiggly lines, making a horrible noise and a flash of light is expelled from the Core Drill. Lagann is completely engulfed by a geyser of green light, and the light starts flowing out of all of Dai-Gunzan's windows, ejecting every Beastman through them. Inmediately after that, a horrifyingly massive pillar of Spiral Energy completely consumes the Dai-Gunzan, killing anyone who wasn't on a Gunman. The ground cracks, and the green light advances through them, making a nearby volcano explode into pieces. The Dai-Gunzan starts running forward, firing all its guns in every direction. As it runs, the cracks erupt with even more lava)
- Thymilph: (Terrified) Uh... I don't get it. What just happened here?!
- Viral: GENERAL THYMILPH LOOK OUT!! (Dai-Gunzan slaps Enkidu, sending it flying beyond the horizon) GAAAAAHHHH!!!
- Thymilph: VIRAL!
(Back inside Gurren)
- Kittan: What the hell is happening out there?!
- Leeron: Dai-Gunzan has gone Berserk!!
- Rossiu: If he keeps going, he will fall into the volcano!
- Leeron: SIMON, COME IN!! PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER!!
(Kamina's body lays motionless on Gurren's screens, with two large holes in the torso, burns in the left side of his face and a very large slit where Thymilph's spear went through. But suddenly, he opens his eyes and stands up in pain)
- Kamina: Gaaaaaaahhh... Can't a guy get a little bit of sleep around here?
(The Dai-Gunzan leaves a huge trail of smoke, still firing its guns, its windows still glow green, and it's literally crying cascades of a glowing green liquid. The surviving Beastmen stare in horror at the awesome and terrible display of might. Dayakka is pursuing it, but can't catch up.)
- Dayakka: SIMON, YOU GOTTA STOP!! SIMON!!!
(Lagann's interior has completely shut down)
- Simon: It's no use. I can't do anything. There's just... there's just nothing i can do now.
- Kamina: SIMON! LET'S SEE YOU GRIT THOSE TEETH!!
- Simon: Uh HUH?!
(Simon's tears fly out of his eyes, and looks in horror as Gurren's Left arm hits Lagann in the face.)
- Simon: WAAH! AH!! AH!! AHEEW!! Tgghh.. gghh... (Lagann's canopy lights up and Simon sees to his happiness that Gurren is standing, and that Kamina is alive again) Bro?! YOU'RE ALIVE!!!
- Kamina: Listen. Just who the hell do you think you are, Simon?
- Simon: Huh?
- Kamina: (Gurren points to the sky with his remanining arm) Your drill is the drill, that's gonna bust right through Heaven and Earth and even Tomorrow! (Simon sobs no longer out of grief, but joy) What are you sittin' arround dawdlin' for?! WE'VE WON, KID!! That behemoth belongs to you now, you don't have to worry about anything!
- Simon: Right, Bro. HM!! (Stops crying. The Dai-Guren stomps the ground, and waves back at Team Dai-Guren with Simon in full control now)
- Simon: Listen up everybody! Everything is OK now! DAI-GUNZAN IS OURS!! Come on aboard!
- Team Dai-Guren: YEEEEAAAAAAHH!!! (Thymilph and the surviving Beastmen attack them) AAAAUGH!!
- Thymilph: You damn dirty Humans! I RECEIVED THAT AS A GIFT FROM THE SPIRAL KING HIMSELF!! I'D SOONER COMPLETELY DESTROY IT THAN SEE IT FALL INTO YOUR FILTHY HANDS!!!
- Kamina: That old furball doesn't know when to give up, does he? Simon. Come on, let's send these clowns packing.
- Simon: Huh?
- Kamina: Let's Combine. We'll use Gurren Lagann, to finish up this last mission.
- Simon: Got it, Bro. I'm with you!
(Lagann ejects from Dai-Guren's top, grabs Gurren's arm and shades and throws them at a pair of Gunmen that try to attack Gurren from behind.)
- Kamina: NOW LET'S DO IT!! (They combine, completely repairing Gurren)
- Kamina: We brawlers are sustained by willpower, even when mocked as reckless and crazy!
- Simon: If there's a wall in our way, then we smash it down! If there isn't a path then we carve one ourselves!
- Both: The magma of our souls burns with a mighty flame! Super Ultra Combining... GURREN LAGANN!!
- Simon: JUST WHO!...
- Kamina: In the hell...
- Both: DO YOU THINK WE ARE!? (The volcano explodes one more time, Team Dai-Guren cheers at them, including Yoko)
- Yoko: There's nobody else like them.
- Thymilph: Thunder Ground, KILL THEM NOW!!
- Kamina: EAT THIS, CANNON FODDEEERR!!! (Gurren Lagann sprouts a bunch of drills all over his body and destroys all the Gunmen surrounding him)
- Thymilph: Damn You.... CONDEMN BLAZE!! (Fires his spear again)
- Kamina: You'll have to do better than that! (Blocks the beam with the palm of Gurren Lagann's hand)
- Thymilph: But... It can't...?!
- Kamina: Listen, Simon. Never forget. Just believe in yourself. Not in the Simon that i believe in, not in the Kamina that you believe in. Have faith in the Simon, that believes in you.
- Simon: Bro? What are you...?
- Kamina: FINISHING... MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!! (Kamina throws Gurren Lagann's shades at Byakko, immobilizing its arms) GIGAAA... DRIIIIILLLLL... BREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAK!!!
- Thymilph: WAAAAAHHH!!! (Dies)
(Byakko has a huge hole where Thymilph used to be, Gurren Lagann retracts its drill, as Byakko explodes behind him) (Episode 8)
- Simon: You gotta run, Nia.
- Nia: What?
- Simon: Once you start, keep running, and don't look back. I'll keep the Gunman busy here.
- Nia: But you-
- Simon: I'M SICK OF IT! I'M SICK OF HAVING TO WATCH PEOPLE DIE! I don't care what happens to me, JUST SO LONG AS NO ONE ELSE HAS TO DIE!! (Gunman opens mouth, revealing a massive missile, Simon starts shivering in terror, but Nia grabs his hands)
- Nia: Is it really your wish to stop living? If you are truly frightened, then you should run. You must not die, Simon.
- Simon: No. No..uh.. I'm not scared.
- Nia: You must not lie either. (Simon looks at her) Come, let us escape. Together. (Episode 9)
- Simon: I'm sorry i took so long.
- Nia: That's okay.
- Simon: I figured it out, and, well, i guess Lagann told me too, and now, i understand.
- Nia: So do I. Thanks a lot, Simon..... (sees Simon's hands are bruised and bloody) Simon? Move your hands.
- Simon: What?
- Nia: (Nia puts her hands in Lagann's handles, which are full of blood spots from Simon's hands, then puts his hands on top of her own) There.
- Simon: (Gives Nia a confused look, and notices she's smiling at him, he smiles back, then he looks at the surface) Alright. (Episode 11, Simon, Move Your Hands and Gurren-Hen)
- Simon: Everyone, STAND FIRM!
- Kittan: Of course I will! With all my friends here, why wouldn't I do it? Kittan, oldest of the Black Siblings!
- Kiyoh: Kiyoh!
- Kiyal: Kiyal!
- Zorthy: Zorthy!
- Kid: Kid!
- Iraak: Iraak!
- Makken: Makken!
- Jorgun: Jorgun!
- Balinbow: Balinbow!
- Rossiu: Rossiu!
- Boota: Boin!
- Yoko: Boota and Yoko!
- Simon: Nia... And Simon!
- All: JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!!
- Simon: Finishing Move! GIGAAA...
- Rossiu: DRIIIILL...
- Both: BREEEEEEEEEEEAAAK!!!
- All: TEAM DAI-GURREN.... SHOOOOOOOT!!!!! (Gurren-hen)
- Adine: Careful. Fire at that angle and you'll manage to kill both of us. You humans aren't really that stupid, are you?
- Yoko: Actually, i'm afraid we are.
- Attenborough: COME ON!! TO HELL WITH IT!! FIRE!!! (The Dai-Gurren burns the Sayrune with 4 cannon shots at the same time)
- Viral: GENERAL ADINE! (Dai-Gunkai jumps into the air in an attempt to save Sayrune)
- Simon: NO, YOU DOOOOOOON'T!! (a massive drill comes out of Gurren Lagann's forehead as Simon charges through Dai-Gunkai's mouth and tears the gigantic Gunman in half, what remains of it quickly explodes into little fragments)
- Adine: Thymilph, I'm... I'm sorry... (Explodes) (Episode 12)
- Guame: My my. What a dissapointing end to things. Still, i suppose i should congratulate Humans for their effort.
- Aardvak Beastman: Just a minute, sir. I hear something.
- Guame: Hear what?
- Aardvak Beastman: It's a rasping noise. It's a Drill!
- Simon: Thanks Pal, that impact just now, Helped me pierce the inside! (Gurren Lagann lifts Dai-Gundo with its drill)
- Guame: Urgh... hahh... This is just a final act of desperation, that Human can't possibly beat... Dai-Gundo's spin.
- Simon: WE'LL JUST SEE ABOUT THAT!! (Gurren Lagann spins its drill so fast it makes Dai-Gundo stop spinning)
- Guame: Hnnnnnn.... (Guame is horrified, and Simon's left eye starts shining. Gurren Lagann makes its drill spin even faster, making Dai-Gundo spin in the opposite direction) STOP! STOP IT!! DAI-GUNDO MUSN'T BE SPUN AROUND THE OTHER WAY!! (The barrier that protected Teppelin is unraveled, Gurren Lagann's drill and the belly of Dai-Gundo starts to release flames of Spiral energy)
- Simon and Rossiu: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! (Gurren Lagann's drill extends and impales Guame, time slows down and everything turns grey)
- Guame: Round and round. Are you watching this transpire, Your Majesty? Your humble servant Guame is still spinning. Whoooawhoaaaawhoaaaawhoawhoawhoa (Time returns to normal speed, Guame is incinerated by Dai-Gundo's internal explosions, as it's turned into a donut and explodes into pieces.) (Episode 14)
- Dayakka: Look at the size of that thing!
- Leeron: There must be a rule against that.
- Kinon: There's something where Teppelin used to be. The pattern is... Oh! It can't be!
- Leeron: What's wrong?
- Kinon: This signature is... GURREN LAGANN'S?!
- Leeron: What? Are you sure?!
- Kinon: I'm picking up another reading that confirms it's Gurren Lagann.
- Simon: (Simon stops staring at Teppelin) Egghh... Graghh! (Gurren Lagann flies very fast upwards, breaking through the clouds) What's that? (Simon looks at Teppelin's head, noticing a window) Wait, that's... (Gurren Lagann's vision zooms towards the window, Revealing Lordgenome is inside, sitting on his throne)
- Nia: Father!
- Team Dai-Gurren: Huh?!
- Yoko: Nia?
- Dayakka: That means...
- Leeron: That's the Spiral King, Lordgenome!
(Simon's irides turn white with anger)
- Simon: That's Him! (Gurren Lagann charges towards Lordgenome's throne room) I NEED TO DEFEAT HIM! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH- UH?! (His expression turns into one of terror as Teppelin's hand ebmerges from below the clouds, Gurren Lagann's drill clashes with one of its fingers so hard it forms 3 gigantic ripples of Spiral Energy, and a massive shockwave wrecks the valley. The Dai-Gurren's crew stares at the scene, completely shocked. Artenborough is biting his nails in terror)
- Dayakka: That's the Main Core?!
(Gurren Lagann is unable to pierce Teppelin's finger)
- Simon: Grrrgghh.... (Gurren Lagann engages full boost, but it still can't pierce Teppelin's finger. Blue lightnings flood the battlefield)
- Lordgenome: Hah, Is that all you have? Pathetic. (Flicks his index forward, Teppelin flicks its fingers too, sending Gurren Lagann spinning towards the ground)
- Simon: EAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!
- Rossiu: Gaaagh... gggghhh...
(Team Dai-Gurren watch in horror as Gurren Lagann falls towards the ground, spinning like a shuriken)
- Yoko: SIMON!
(Fortunately, Dai-Gurren grabs Gurren Lagann before it's too late)
- Leeron: Nice Catch!
- Simon: Oh man... That hurt...
- Leeron: Simon, are you OK?
- Simon: Yeah, I think.
- Rossiu: I can't believe that drill tip can't penetrate that hull...
(Nia opens her eyes, showing her flower-shaped red irides)
- Nia: Simon, please do this. I know it might be dangerous, but i want you to take me to my father.
- Simon: Nia?
- Nia: Simon, i want to speak to my father.
- Rossiu: Eagh... dah... That's crazy! Lordgenome isn't gonna let us get anywhere near him or anywhere close enough to let you in! We should focus on a long range attack plan and not on how are we getting close enough to have a conversation!
- Leeron: Rossiu, did you forget? This girl's come all this way to give her father a piece of her mind.
- Rossiu: But that's-
- Leeron: When a girl sets her mind on something, a good man is obliged to help her do it.
- Nia: Please Simon.
- Simon: Hm. Nia, let's go.
- Rossiu: You're not serious, aren't you?!
- Simon: You've better believe it!
- Kittan: Hey, I'm coming too!
- Simon: Uh...
- Kittan: If i don't go and kick that guy's ass, I won't be able to live with myself!
(The rest of Team Dai-Guren floods Simon's screen, everyone wants to go too.)
- Boota: Buhbuh!
- Dayakka: Sorry, guys, but that doesn't seem very likely.
- Kittan: WHAAT?!
(Teppelin launches a massive army from its body)
- Dayakka: Rossiu was right. They aren't going to just let us walk up to him and pick a fight.
- Kittan: How many of those damn things they got?!
- Kiyal: Hey, i like the looks of this. Don't you, sis?
- Kiyoh: Yeah, with so many of them to fight, we can finally show everyone the real power of the Black Siblings.
- Kittan: Aww, you guys.
- Kiyal: Ain't that right, Brother?
- Kittan: Yeah, it sure is. But she's totally wrong about one thing.
- Kiyal and Kiyoh: Huh?!
- Kittan: It ain't just the power of the Black Siblings that we're gonna show them. IT'S THE POWER OF TEAM DAI-GURREEEEN!!! (King Kittan points his right hand towards the sky)
- Team Dai-Gurren: YEAAAAAAAAHHH!!!
- Kittan: Get going, Simon. We'll open a path for Dai-Gurren and you take it from there.
- Simon: Kittan... uh...
- Zorthy: When you fight the creep, give him a few whacks for us too!
(Boota gives a huge lick Simon's face, He looks at Boota for a moment, then looks back to his friends.)
- Simon: YOU'VE GOT IT!!
(Dai-Gurren moves Gurren Lagann towards the bridge, as he extends his hand towards it. The window opens , making Nia lose her balance a bit. She notices Old Coco was the one who opened the window, he nods at her, as Nia jumps to Gurren Lagann's hand and enters his cockpit, where Simon awaits her. Happily Ever After stats sounding in the backgroud)
- Nia: Thanks a lot, Simon!
- Simon: You ready?
- Nia: Yes! (Gurren Lagann's cockpit closes, as he looks towards Teppelin. He deploys his wings)
- Dayakka: DAI-GUREN LAUNCH!!
- Gabal: Launching! (The Dai-Gurren launches, with Gurren Lagann standing on its Knife Anchor, arms behind his back. A huge army of allied Gunmen and Dai-guns flies with them. A grey Gunman gets blasted into bits as Simon looks)
- Simon: There! (The Beastman army fires their guns at the Human forces, blasting a few of them, Kiyoh starts firing her cannon as Kittan and Kiyal charges towards the Gunmen in Dai-Gurren's way. One of them is a red Twinboekun)
- Kittan Coming through! GET OUTTA THE WAY!!
- Artenborough: YOU WON'T BEAT US!! (Slams his hands on a button, Dai-Gurren folds her arms as her cannons fire, a shell hits her right in the middle of her chest, but does nothing to her, Most of the Beastman army is obliterated in the process)
(Kiddknuckle, Dayakkaiser, Mo-Shogun and Twinboekun charge towards the Beastmen, tearing many of them to pieces with their guns. Bachon's battleships fire their missiles at the Beastman battleships, A purple Twinboekun fights alongside the beastmen. One of the battleships crashes against a Human one, and they start punching each other. The Human battleship fires its main gun, an act that destroys them both.)
- Kinon: There's a thin patch on the right!
- Dayakka: Good, let's not miss it. (Dai-Gurren flies through the patch and charges through it. Simon makes a drill larger than Gurren Lagann)
- Simon: We can do it if Gurren Lagann pulls his strength with Dai-Gurren!
- Lordgenome: Really? The end result will be the same. (This time Teppelin moves its left arm, which is a gigantic hammer.)
- Dayakka and Leeron: NOW LET'S DO IT!! (Dai-Gurren rams the hammer so hard she stops it dead on its tracks and makes a hole on it)
- Dayakka and Artenborough: OPEN FIRE!!! (Dai-Gurren fires all of her guns and her anchors at the hammer, completely hollowing it and deforming it beyond repair)
- Dayakka and Gabal: FIRE THE KNIFE ANCHOOOOOOOR!!!! (Dai-Gurren fires her Knife Anchor through the hammer, with Gurren Lagann still standing on it. With the added inertia, Gurren Lagann breaks right into Lordgenome's throne room.)
- Lordgenome: Impressive.
- Artenborough: WE DID IT!! HAHA!!
- Dayakka: You asked for help and we delivered!
- Kinon: Yeaaahh!
(A big rumble shakes the bridge)
- Team Dai-Gurren: UGHH!!
- Tetsukan: IT'S THE ENGINE ROOM! There was an explosion, and there's fires in the Main Shaft and the Generator Room!
(Dai-Gurren's Generator is melting and smoking, its power cables are breaking down and the Generator now has an orange glowing spiral on its surface.)
- Leyte: Ron! That last burst was all we had left!
- Leeron: It's OK! That's all we needed! Let's put the old girl to bed now.
- Simon: What's wrong? What was that explosion?
- Dayakka: Don't worry about us, Simon. You go to Lordgenome and do what you gotta do.
- Simon: Yeah, i will! But-
- Yoko: Hurry up and get going!
- Simon: Yoko...
- Yoko: Go on, Simon. This is what we've all been working so hard for.
- Simon: (beat) You're right. (Simon jumps towards Lordgenome)
- Leeron: OK. Dai-Guren, it's time for your last job.
- Dayakka: Set Timers on explosive magazines!
- Gabal: Timers Set!
- Artenborough: LOWER UP!!
- Dayakka: EMERGENCY... EJECT!! (Dai-Gurren raises her arms, and separates from her battleship part right before it explodes, obliterating Teppelin's hammer. Dai-Gurren falls towards the surface, her windows brokenand her Levisphere hanging from a cable connected to her pelvis-shaped chassis, which was exposed by the ejection)
- Yoko: It's all up to you now, Simon.
(Gurren Lagann lands right in front of Lordgenome's throne)
- Lordgenome: I see that you've somehow managed to arrive, Man of the Spiral.
- Simon: Lordgenome.
(Gurren Lagann gives a step forward, and suddenly dodges a sword, backflipping on the way down. Enkidudu appears right in front of him, folding its arms. Simon looks indifferently at it.)
- Viral: Nicely dodged. (Unveils Enkidudu's swords) As expected, Simon!
- Simon: Ugh... Viral!
(Love Catch I: Gurren Lagann staring to the left and Simon looking at the expectator) (Episode 15) (Love Catch II: Lazengann staring to the right and Lordgenome looking at the expectator, the background is blue and Lazengann's horn has a sunflare) (Lordgenome is expectating with a smug smile)
- Viral: heheHAHAHAHAHAhaha... (Grins) As you can see, I'm a whole new being today!
- Simon: What's that?
- Viral: I have a new body that needs no rest and can go on fighting... (Enkidudu charges towards Gurren Lagann) INDEFINITELY!! (Gurren Lagann blocks all of his attacks with his left hand) I've become more than a Beastman! THIS PLACE WILL BE YOUR GRAVE!! HRAAAAGH!!
(Gurren Lagann grabs all of Enkidudu's swords with one hand.)
- Viral: WHAT?!
(Gurren Lagann shatters the swords, Viral and Enkidudu are completely stunned)
- Viral: It... That's not possible! HOW CAN THIS BE?! (One of the shards gets stuck on the floor, Gurren Lagann, now angered, punches Enkidudu, but it blocks the blow with its arms) Dammit! WHY CAN'T I DEFEAT HIM?! (Gurren Lagann's drills shatter Enkidudu's arms and part of its face)
- Lordgenome: Oh, Viral, you poor little creature.
- Viral: Majesty?
- Lordgenome: The power I gave you isn't meant to be used to overcome the Humans.
(Gurren Lagann applies more force, engulfing his arm with Spiral Energy)
- Viral: Uh?! (Simon overpowers Enkidudu, punching it so hard a large shockwave goes through its body. Enkidudu is sent flying in the air, bounces on the floor twice, breaking the floor and hits the wall back first)
- Viral: Ugh... Majesty...
(Gurren Lagann looks at Lordgenome, Enkidudu has no hands and its face is twisted beyond recognition, and has become cockeyed)
- Lordgenome: To begin with, no Beastman will ever be a match against a Human who has aquired the Power of the Spiral. Viral, it's true I gave you a new body that functions without needing rest and can never die, but it was not so you could fight Humans. (Simon gives a very angry look at Lordgenome, Nia disapproves too)It was so you could be a storyteller who could recount for all time, The Victory of the Spiral King.
- Viral: Storyteller? (Viral is not happy)
- Lordgenome: Stay where you are and observe. Observe the fate of a foolish Human, and then, until the very end of Time itself, tell of the futility of raising a rebellion against the Spiral King!
(Nia gets out of Lagann's head and stands in front of him)
- Lordgenome: Nia.
- Nia: It has been a long time, My Father.
- Lordgenome: You're looking quite well. You DO know I never expected to ever see your face again.
- Nia: Why are you doing all of this, Father? You drive Humans underground and kill them if they come to the Surface! IT'S HORRIBLE!! How could you do such a cruel and terrible thing like that?!
- Lordgenome: Hmhm... hmhmhmhmhm... HAHAHAHAHA! HAHAHAHA! (Simon and Nia stare at him, not happy with his laughs) Ignorance is such a frightening thing. You might believe yourselves to be fighting on the side of righteousness, but I am the one who is truly protecting this world! It is I, Lordgenome, who is the ultimate guardian of Humanity.
- Simon: What are you saying?
- Nia: There is no such a thing as a guardian who... kills his charges! ARE YOU SO BLIND YOU CAN'T SEE THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?!
- Lordgenome: This world that I have created is the ONLY to ensure Humanity's survival. You and your friends have strayed from that path and I cannot allow that to continue. For Humanity's sake, You must die.
(A black and thin drill-like tentacle breaks through the floor and lunges towards Nia, but Simon blocks it with Gurren's sunglasses. Unfortunately, Nia falls off Gurren Lagann due to his sudden movement)
- Nia: WAAAAAAHH!!
(Fortunately, Gurren Lagann keeps her from hitting the ground with his hand, the drill tentacle retracts back into the hole)
- Lordgenome: The Spiral Power is strong within you. Yet you are unaware that such power leads to destruction. (Lordgenome's poncho falls off, revealing his muscles and his huge chest bush) Allow me to teach you... (His throne sinks into the floor, and his maidens turn into Core Drills) And show you its futility! (The retracted throne opens like a door, revealing Teppelin's cockpit, and a Gurren Lagann-type Gunman sitting on it) You are not the only one to possess the Power of the Spiral. I will show you the Awesome and Terrible truth of REAL Spiral Power. (The Gunman's cockpit closes, the Maiden-Core Drills insert in six holes on its neck. The Gunman's Spiral Gauge is red, and its Core Drill slot is diamond shaped. Lordgenome's eyes glow a bright pink.) Behold my Lazengann.
(The lights in Lordgenome's throne room turn yellow as Lazengann ascends, doing a Gainax Armfold.)
- Nia: Father?
(Simon is shocked.)
- Simon: Wait. That's a...!
- Rossiu: A Gurren Lagann-Type! This has gotta be the reason behind the identical Gurren Lagann readings!
(Lazengann jumps into the dark of the ceiling.)
- Simon: Nia, you know I have to fight him.
- Nia: ... Right.
(Lazengann punches the ground, but Gurren Lagann dodges him. Lazengann then grabs his arms and slams its torso into Gurren's face)
- Rossiu: Ugh!
(Gurren Lagann is thrown into the air, he grabs his boomerang with his left hand, but Lazengann roundhouse-kicks him in the head, flinging him into a window, cracking it.)
- Nia: AAAAHH!
- Simon: Agghh... Gyagghh...
('Lazengann charges towards Gurren Lagann, his arms flapping in the wind. Simon blocks a punch with his right arm, and a kick with the other. Both their fists and their chests clash, as they struggle against each other.)
- Lordgenome: There was once a man who fought as you do, also unaware his actions would ensure Humanity's extinction.
- Simon: What are you talking about?
- Lordgenome: Nothing you need to know, you'll be dead soon, after all.
(Lazengann swats Gurren Lagann with his left arm, and hits him with a Backwards Roundhouse Kick. Gurren Lagann recovers his balance and brakes, leaving a big mark on the floor. Lazengann throws a tentacle, but Simon swats it away, Lordgenome tries again, but Simon throws Gurren's shades, which divide in two, tear through Lazengann's tentacles and immobilize Lazengann's arms)
- Lordgenome: (Bored) Hmph.
- Simon: GIGAAAAAA... DRIIIIILLL... BREEEEEEEEEEAAAK!!!!
(Simon hits Lazengann right in the middle of his torso. Unfortunately, Lazengann also had a torso jaw, which munches on Simon's Giga Drill Break and breaks it, a true "Giga Drill Breaker", one might say.)
- Rossiu: (Horrified) No way...!
(Lazengann shatters Gurren's shades, and the starry background fades)
- Lordgenome: Heh...
(Lazengann uppercuts Gurren Lagann, and impales his body with multiple tentacles. Gurren Lagann falls into the ground, lifting a lot of dust in the process.)
- Rossiu: (Scared) Ghhh... It's hopeless... We can't beat him...
- Simon: Don't give up! Kicking Logic Out and Doing the Impossible is the way Team Gurren rolls! Rossiu, have faith in Me. Believe in the Simon who believes in you! We still have some fight left in us!
(Gurren Lagann gets back on his feet)
- Lordgenome: You have strength enough to get back on your feet, I see. Well, IT WAS A WASTED EFFORT!!
- Simon: WE'LL SEE!! (Gurren Lagann grows a pair of Drills parallel to his left hand, and destroys Lazengann's right arm with a brofist)
- Lordgenome: Uh... Heh...
(Lazengann grows a large drill from his chest, impaling Gurren Lagann and hitting Gurren's cockpit)
- Simon: ROSSIU!!!
- Rossiu: I'm alright! I'm not helpless!
(Gurren Lagann grabs Lazengann)
- Rossiu: Now's your chance, Simon! USE LAGANN!!
- Simon: Right! Got it!
(Lagann separates from Gurren, Lordgenome stares at the ceiling)
- Lordgenome: Go away.
(Lazengann slams Gurren into the ground with his tail.)
- Rossiu: Gah! ghhh...
(Lordgenome hears a buzzing noise coming from the ceiling)
- Simon: LAGAAANN... IMPAAAAAACT!!!
(Lagann gets stuck on Lazengann's left arm)
- Lordgenome: So you hoped to absorb my Lazengann, do you?
(Lazengann's arm explodes)
- Simon: He exploded!
(Lagann lands in the ground)
- Lordgenome: Well, well, I see that it was not a fluke that you made it this far, however, your mischief ends here. Now that you have lost your body, you don't have the slightest hope of winning.
- Simon: (Furious) QUIT YOUR STUPID JAMMERING!! I'm not gonna lose! Nia, Yoko, Rossiu, Leeron, Kittan, Dayakka. Every member of Team Dai-Gurren believes in me! The ME that my Bro believed in, THE ME THAT I BELIEVE IN, IS NEVER GONNA LOSE TO THE LIKES! OF! YOU!! AAAAHH!!
- Lordgenome: Well, we shall see. Behold, I WILL CRUSH YOU INTO DUUUST!!!
(Lazengann sprouts a massive amount of tendrils that completely engulf it, forming a gigantic drill as large as Teppelin's head, the drill completely destroys Lordgenome's throne room as Lagann clashes with it, unleashing an even larger shockwave that illuminates the night sky)
- Simon and Nia: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! (Lagann cracks Lordgenome's huge drill)
- Lordgenome: Uh? (Lagann breaks through and impales Lazengann in the middle of its chest) Unn.... I shouldn't have trusted a Gunman... TO GET THE JOB DONE!! (Lordgenome breaks his way out of Lazenngan's head and starts walking on its body, going straight towards Lagann)
- Simon: Uh... Uh... Huh?! WAAAAAHHH!! (Lordgenome punches Lagann in the face, and lifts him)
- Simon and Nia: AAAAAHHH!!
(Lordgenome punches Lagann in the right eye so hard he sends him flying, then kicks him in the left cheek, uppercuts him and finally, he grabs and slams Lagann into Lazengann's body so hard it completely shatters his canopy, sending Nia and Boota flying away from him towards Teppelin's top and obliterating Lazengann in the process. The screen cuts to white)
(Boota licks Nia in the face, waking her up)
- Nia: Ohhhh...
(Nia opens her eyes, and sees Lordgenome, whose head is overflowing with red Spiral flames, slowly walking towards Lagann and Simon, who ended up quite battered and bruised, and is struggling to keep himself standing, they are back on top of Teppelin, but the throne room is gone, and there is a greenish glow coming from the ground)
- Nia: Oh no, Simon!
(Lagann tries to punch Lordgenome, but he dodges it and counterattacks, punching Lagann again and again and again, laughing hysterically while doing it. Rossiu and surprisingly, Viral, are looking in horror as Simon and Lagann get beaten to a pulp. Lagann and Lordgenome hold their hands and start pushing towards each other. An alarm sounds in Lagann as his arms start failing, Simon doesn't look in a fit condition either, his goggles are broken and are hanging from his neck, fully exposing his hair, his right eyelid is so swollen he can barely open it, his left cheek is swollen too, but not as much, and his entire body is covered in bruises)
- Simon: Ghh... I can't produce... any more drills...
- Lordgenome: (Grinning like crazy) What's wrong? Has all your Spiral Power run dry?
- Nia: Simon! If everyone's faith in you is the thing that gives you all of your strength then, I'll believe in you with every fiber of my being! SO PLEASE, PLEASE WIN!!
- Lordgenome: Eegghh Rrrg.... DAAAHH!! (Shatters Lagann's arms) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
(Simon collapses on Lagann's face as it shuts down)
- Lordgenome: I haven't had this much fun in a long time, boy. Now, BACK INTO THE DIRT WITH YOU!!(Grabs Simon's head)
- Simon: Ahhh... (Grabs his Core Drill as Lordgenome lifts him by the head) DAAH!! (Stabs Lordgenome in the middle of his chest bush with the Core Drill)
- Lordgenome: UGH! (Looks towards his chest) A CORE DRILL?!
(The Core Drill starts glowing, Lordgenome's head flares up and his jaw drops from the sheer horror of what's about to happen)
- Simon: My name is Simon, Leader of Team Dai-Guren, Simon The Digger! If you decide that you're going to be a wall that's standing in my way, then I have Something that will open a hole in you every time! And that Something... IS MY DRILL!!! HAH!!!
(Simon Spins the Core Drill on in Lordgenome's chest, unleashing a gigantic explosion of Spiral Energy that goes through his chest. The blast of green light reaches over a kilometer in distance before dissipating. When the smoke clears, the greenish glow is gone revealing the night sky, and Lordgenome has a very large circular hole where his heart, lungs, spine and other vital organs used to be.)
- Lordgenome: I see. Your Spiral Power has grown sufficient to outstrip my own. (Grins at Simon and Nia) Hear this now. You will soon come to regret it.
- Simon: (Looking more sad than angry) Lordgenome...
- Lordgenome: I will leave you with this warning. When the land overflows with a million apes The Moon shall become Hell's Messenger and completely destroy the world of the Spiral. (Rossiu looks shocked)
- Simon: What does that mean?!
(Lordgenome just smiles at him, Nia notices what her father is about to do)
- Nia: FATHER! NO!!
(Lordgenome ignores Nia, and he lets himself fall from Teppelin, his body is seen plummeting to the ground. Nia gives a sad look at the ground as Simon walks towards her, then her look becomes determined and she stands back up.)
- Nia: Farewell, my Father. I Will... Head Towards Tomorrow (Episode 15: I Will Head Towards Tomorrow)
- Simon: SMASHING THROUGH BOTH KARMA AND FATE!
- Viral: The screams of life echo across the galaxy.
- Both: Raging Wave Combining! Ark-Gurren... LAGAAAANN!! HUOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! (Episode 22)
- Simon: Good Job, Leeron, we can always count on you.
- Leeron: I don't want just your words of praise, i want your burning heart too!
- Viral: Can i kill him?
- Simon: Just let it go. We need to get started. (Kyo-Mugann and Kū-Mugann combine into a saucer-like machine) Guess they can combine too, huh? (Ark-Gurren Lagann cracks his neck) COME ON! (The fused Muganns start to glow pink and charge towards Simon, a massive Spiral aura starts flowing around Ark-Gurren Lagann) Ark-Gurren Lagann... FULL POWER!! (Simon and Viral punch the Mugann, unleashing a massive amount of sparks)
- Simon: Alright Viral, let's do it!
- Viral: That suits me just FINE! (Ark-Gurren Lagann stops the Mugann's advance, clenches its right fist and prepares to punch)
- Simon: Have a taste of the Space-Time Shattering...
- Viral: Burst... Spinning...
- Both: PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH!!! (the Mugann is punched so hard it makes a hole in the Universe, it explodes inside the hole)(Episode 22)
- Nia: Even when trapped by karma's cycle...
- Yoko: The dreams we left behind will open the door!
- Leeron: Even if the universe stands in our way...
- Viral: Our seething blood will determine what we'll be!
- Simon: WE'LL BREAK THROUGH TIME AND SPACE!
- Team Dai-Gurren: AND DEFY ALL WHO WOULD STOP US TO GRAB HOLD OF OUR PATH!!!
- Simon: Tengen Toppa... GURREN LAGANN!
- Team Dai-Gurren: JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?! (Episode 27, Lagann-Hen.)
Just who the hell do you think we are!
