*** While this could just be Gainax being Gainax, this could also be done for an artistic purpose: Each form is the show itself daring to match the sheer scale of it's predecessors, culmanting in the show's unique transformation, the Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Lagann, im which it hjas become it''s own entity.
* Look at the shape of the Anti-Spiral's drills and Team Dai-Gurren's: One is conical in shape and the other is spiraled. Why? Because the Anti=Spiral is incapable of evoloving or changing, thus kit stays at the same size, wheres Team Dai-Gurren is capable of evolving and growing stronger, thus they spiral out.

* As stated on the [[ShoutOut/TenegnToopaGurrenLagann Shout-Out]] page, each form of Gurren Lagann is related to a previous mecha show:
** Lagann itself is very much like Canti from ''Anime/FLCL'' being a red mech with a weird face that draws it's power fro it's pilot, a young boy.
** Gurren Lagann can be considered the incarnation of the lighter aspects of Eva Unit 01 from... ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' with it being piloted by a young boy inside it's head, being mentally connected with the pilot and being a common connection with a person from their respective pilot's past that heavily influence them. Likewise, Lordgenome's mech Lazgennan [[spoiler: Another Lagann type mech]] represents it's darker aspects and being very similar to the weapon that the heroes use.
** Arc Gurren Lagann shares more than a passing resemblance to the ''Anime/GaiGaoGar'' mech.
** Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann looks very much like ''Anime/GunBuster'', was introduced after the death of someone close to the main character and even is introduced in the [[BadassArmfold Gainax Pose.]]
** As stated on the SHout-out page, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is a friendlier version of the Getter Emperor being a nigh-unstoppable force of awesome that can be downright terrifying.

** Worse, all of the Laganns in the Spiral Graveyard weren't from Lordgenome's rebellion, but from countless other Spiral races who successfully overthrew their own Spiral Kings, stopped their moons from falling, and even discovered the Anti-Spirals' dimension (which Lordgenome failed at) -- [[AllForNothing only to die at either the Death Spiral Machine or the multidimensional labyrinth]].

* Spiral Energy is almost identical to Creator/{{Henri Bergson}}'s ''élan vital''.

Added DiffLines:

* More Fridge Sadness, but despite how awesome Lordgenome's skills were, when you think about it, his war with the Anti-Spirals was not particularly successful. He mentions how they couldn't find the Anti-Spirals' homeworld in his time. Given the massive Spiral graveyard they encounter in the homeworld's space, that would imply that lots of Spiral warriors managed to invade, albeit unsuccessfully.

* Since Simon happens to be omnipotent, even if he doesn't use his power to bring back those he lost, his power suggest that he could also see them again in other ways, plus there a saying "Death is only the beginning" meaning that Nia and the others may be alive in others ways and eventually Simon will see them all again.

* "Don't believe in yourself; believe in me who believes in you". On its face, it sounds like, "Don't worry, kid, when your confidence is shot, I'll keep cheering you on", and it's easy enough to just take it as such... but pare down that sentence and you get "Believe in me." Simon was looked down on and/or ignored in his village, and no one "believed in" him aside from Kamina... but consider that Kamina was in much the same kind of position, being called "the liar's son", having his gang composed of insincere hangers-on who betrayed him at the first opportunity, and being subjected to constant beatings, jailings and general attempts to shut him up. The only person who truly stood by him was Simon. Additionally, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming we see in]] [[TearJerker Episode 11]] that [[spoiler: Kamina was afraid and panicking when the tunnel collapsed, and Simon's quiet determination was directly responsible for Kamina's refusal to give up]]. In short, when the phrase is examined closely, Kamina was actually asking Simon, the person he admired more than anyone else, to have faith in ''him'' -- "Please have faith in me, because you're the person I respect and trust the most, and I act confident and self-assured because I know you're watching me". Furthermore, when [[spoiler:Kamina was dying]], he told Simon, "Don't believe in me, who believes in you... don't believe in you, who believes in me... believe in you, who believes in yourself" because he finally recognized that that was what he should have been telling Simon all along.

** Especially with Nia, for There is a possibility that she may not be truly dead, rather she still lives and exist in some unknown way after disappearing.
1. The first and most powerful example that she was able to hold on to existence for a week after the defeat of the Anti-Spiral through sheer willpower and her love for Simon. She may be Anti-Spiral, but she had the heart and soul of a amazing Spiral Warrior equal to that of the likes of Simon. When she disappeared on her wedding day, her soul or whatever's left of her may have gone to an unknown location.2. Kamina showed up in the Extradimensional Labyrinth to save Simon and the others, despite being dead for more than seven years. Most likely he used his "fighting spirit" and Spiral power to appear and help rescue them. Since Nia would come to display amazing "fighting spirit" of her own, she could exist in the same way. 3.While she and her dress disappeared, the ring Simon gave her did not. While this could be due to the ring made of the Spiral Gem Simon once found, this could also be her way of telling Simon that it is possible to find her again, whenever she is. This may also what he may have been doing during the 20-year time skip, besides making the world beautiful with flowers.
