Lonely orphan Simon ([[NoPronunciationGuide pronounced "SHI-mon" in Japanese and "SEE-moan" in the English dub]]) lives in an underground village, digging for ancient artifacts and eating pigmoles. His [[BigBrotherMentor self-appointed big brother]], Kamina, is a [[HotBlooded hot-headed]] badass who dreams of going to the "Surface" as his father did (despite the village elder constantly saying the "Surface" doesn't exist). One fateful day, Simon discovers a strange drill-shaped key and, soon after, [[MiniMecha a pint-sized mecha]] which responds to the key. While taking an unapproved excursion to see it, Simon and Kamina are interrupted by the village elder... then by the roof of the village collapsing... ''then'' by [[HumongousMecha a massive, bestial, robotic head]]... and '''''then''''' by Yoko, [[SmallGirlBigGun a woman with a very big gun]] ([[{{Stripperiffic}} and very little clothing]]) firing at said beast-mecha--a "Gunmen".[[note]]''Ganmen'' in Japanese, meaning "face"[[/note]]

And then they re-combine to create '''SUPER TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN''', which is ''even bigger''. And looks like a '''GIANT-SIZED KAMINA MADE OF BLUE FLAMES, ''COMPLETE WITH CAPE AND EPIC SHADES''!!!''']]

* AbusingTheKardashevScaleForFunAndProfit: And boy, does it get abused. Thanks to Spiral Power, Humanity starts out as pretty much Type -1, then goes to Type 0 in 7 years. They then go from Type 0 to Type 4+ in a ''few days''! Finally, they "settle down" to Type 1 after the final fight, using more power as necessary but mostly limiting it [[spoiler:to prevent excess Spiral power causing Spiral Nemesis]].

** [[spoiler:The may be a form of GenreSavvy on Anti-Spiral's part, as despair weakens spiral power, though it is debatable whether he ''needed'' to do this to get rid of them for good, or just wanted to (or both).]]

*** Notably, [[BeyondTheImpossible Effectively, Simon's drill SURPASSES the Heavens in it's bore size...]]

Added DiffLines:

** The most notable thing is the size of Simon's drill. It begins with the Core Drill, which is smaller than his hand. By the final episode, The Dai Gurren Brigade is using a drill that is larger than anything in the known universe... INCLUDING the known universe.

* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The Beastmen live in the high-tech city of Teppelin under the rule of the Spiral King, while humans are forced to eke out an existence BeneathTheEarth. The Spiral King maintains this to appease his masters, the Anti-Spiral, [[spoiler: who want to keep humans from advancing because they are a Spiral race, and the awakening of Spiral Power could destroy the universe]].
