* HumongousMecha: The Gunmen and Grapearls, which range from MiniMecha to extremely huge. At the end of the show, the [[spoiler:[[TitleDrop title mecha, the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann]] can be measured in ''lightyears''.]]. See [[http://i29.tinypic.com/2w56b8h.gif here]] and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ttgl.jpg here]] for just how big the damn thing is. The second movie features the [[UpToEleven 52.8 billion light years tall]] [[spoiler: Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (according to the offical guide book from GAINAX (仕事魂) and after transforming into a drill its length is multiplied 10 times)]], which can be seen [[http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/7553/ohgodepic.jpg here]]. That thing inside its head? That's [[spoiler: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann]] . [[spoiler: The small dots are galaxies. And yes, the mecha DOES look like a huge Kamina. [[IncendiaryExponent Made of fire]]]]. [[spoiler: [[http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j76/Zeldamaniac/SuperTengenToppaGurrenLagann.png THIS]] picture gives a size comparison with the Granzeboma, which is smaller than the STTGL's foot!]] At this point, the only larger known mecha are {{Demonbane}}, and ''possibly'' [[Manga/GetterRobo the Getter Emperor]], both of which are ''ridiculous''.

** One of the biggest changes the manga brings is the inclusion of [[spoiler: Kiyal in the final battle with the Anti-Spirals. This also may have been a response to criticism, as fans were disappointed with the reduced role of the Black Sisters in the second half of the series.]]

* [[GainaxEnding Gainax Opening]]: Apparently, it was ''supposed'' to foreshadow the ending but the writers lost that story thread somewhere. Fans have taken it as an alternate reality where that foreshadowing references a ''bad'' ending. The WordOfGod ended up being [[AscendedFanon going along with it]].

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: The manga adaptation of ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' uses this trope.
** Nia is shown right after Kamina, Yoko, Leeron, and Simon leave Ritoona Village. There's also some Early-Bird ShipTease for Dayakka[=/=]Kiyoh and Rossiu[=/=]Kinon.
** In ''Gurren-Hen'', [[spoiler:Guinble]] makes an appearance just after [[spoiler:the destruction of the Doten-Kaizan. He looks (appropriately enough) younger than he did in the original series.]]
** In ''Lagann-hen'', [[spoiler:the Anti-Spiral's face briefly appears on the moon's surface just as Nia accepted Simon's marriage proposal.]]

* {{Bowdlerize}}: [[HotSpringsEpisode Episode 6]] received several edits, particularly Kamina abandoning the Gurren Lagann for the promise of seeing the captured girls censored bodies (turns out they were wearing {{Modesty Towel}}s. Yoko berates him for his stupidity (she's just angry about the hot springs being a trap in the edited version) and later tracks him down to [[DopeSlap pound his face in]]. When Kamina stands by his choice, she finally yells that [[DidISayThatOutLoud he only needs to ask to see her breasts]].
