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]]

* MultipleHeadCase: Because every individual Gunmen resembles a face and has an individual pilot, any of the CombinedMecha forms (such as the iterations of the titular Gurren Lagann) end up as this, with each pilot controlling an individual component (and face) and having to coordinate between each other in battle.

** Taken to a ridiculous extent with Sayrune, which resembles a female figure but has [[EyesDoNotBelongThere eyes for breasts]] and a VaginaDentata that mimic Adiane's speech and expressions.

** [[spoiler: Eh, they're fighting in a pocket dimension forged by their own perceptions during the final battle. Nothing that exists there is 'real' except the characters themselves.]]
