* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Oh, lordy. Most of the Topless, and Lal'C is worst of all.

Oh, lordy. Most of the Topless, and Lal'C is worst of all.all.
** Also, the title falls victim to this a bit: while Gainax usually prefers the romanization "[=DieBuster=]", it's very likely what they were going for was "[=DaiBuster=]". As in, "Dai" meaning "great" or "big" in Japanese, so "Big Buster". [[spoiler:As in, Size-Of-A-Frickin'-Planet-Buster.]]

* WhamEpisode: Episode 4 turns ''everything'' on its head. The Topless [[spoiler:are actually the first stage of humanity's evolution into Space Monsters]]. The Space Monsters [[spoiler:are actually the ''good guys'', an automated defense system that mistook the Topless for Space Monsters]]. The Variable Gravity Well [[spoiler:is actually a ''real'' Space Monster, from ''Anime/GunBuster'', and way out of Fraternity's league]]. And Nono [[spoiler:is not just some android -- she's Buster Machine No. 7, ''the most powerful fighting machine in existence'']].
** The space monster in the first episode was [[spoiler:obeying Nono when she shouted she would [[BluntMetaphorsTrauma go out into space]].]]

The parallels between ''Anime/GunBuster'' and ''[=DieBuster=]'' are readily apparent. Both series focus on two girls - one, a hyperactive girl with natural talent but no actual skill; the other, a more stoic figure, a veteran of training, and the one person her compatriot idolizes. Both stories revolve around human emotion and the draining effect a drawn-out war can have on the combatants and their relationships. They both idealize the principle, common to the SuperRobot genre, that with hard work and determination, and ThePowerOfFriendship, anything is possible. Finally, they also realize, rather poignantly, that even with incredible power, [[PyrrhicVictory sacrifices must be made]]. [[spoiler: They even show THE EXACT SAME ENDING, from different perspectives]]. The duology is a testament to the Mecha genre and a celebration of everything Creator/StudioGainax had done up to that point, and should definitely be watched by any anime fan.

** Makes sense for this trope to be so prominent when the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann anime]] that comes directly after this is the TropeNamer.

* PassingTheTorch: With a side of {{Meta}}. [[spoiler:Nono is the SupportingProtagonist for most of the series until she becomes the [[BigGood strongest of the good guys]]. But she is elevated to a [[PhysicalGod godly status]] very different from her own [[TheHero ideal]]. She ends up leaving the battlefield ''and'' her role. Lal'C is grudgingly stuck as the protagonist in the last episode as she becomes the role Nono always wanted.]]

** Aside from functioning as a generator, the [[PsychicPowers Topless' abilities]] let them [[AllThereInTheManual distort the laws of physics]]. It is dangerous and unpredictable, [[AllThereInTheManual even to the user]], to the point of needing to be sealed for daily life. This would imply [[spoiler:the real Space Monsters themselves have such abilities]].
