* [[CampGay Leeron]] of ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' openly flirts with Kamina, Simon, Viral, and Rossiu. For a more subtle example, [[TheStoic Rossiu]] ''breaks down crying'' after he [[spoiler:orders Simon's execution]], and Simon ''drills through time and space'' to stop Rossiu [[spoiler:killing himself]], delivering a GetAHoldOfYourselfMan punch that would make even Kamina jealous. For a less subtle example, there's Simon and Viral's fistfight, where both of them are wearing nothing but suspiciously tiny towels.

* As an overall theme, some HoYay lies the series' understandable-in-context [[RunningGag obsession with]] [[VisualInnuendo drills]]. With the show's cast being vastly comprised of [[RatedMForManly manly]], HotBlooded males alongside young females like Yoko and Kinon who are implied to be of the YaoiFangirl/Fujoshi persuasion, if the show's message is taken even ''slightly'' out of context, all the drill talk seems to deteriorate into one big euphemism. With the [[GuyOnGuyIsHot filthy place]] this show has a knack for putting [[CovertPervert certain viewers']] minds in... it's safe to say that [[FreudWasRight Freud was definitely right.]]

* None of this however can compete with Simon and his "aniki" Kamina. The story of them caught in an earthquake together, in which they both describe the other as an indomitable source of strength and the inspiration for the person they are today, possesses more romantic undertones than the entire rest of the series combined, and that's only the most obvious.
** No, the most obvious would be either their hug in the first episode where Kamina cradles Simon's head to his chest, or in the second episode where Simon falls asleep in Kamina's arms.
** Then, in one episode (after [[spoiler:Kamina's death]], that is) Simon is shown spending his time making statues of Kamina and nearly filling up his room with them.

** The Simon/Rossiu argument is not helped that the dub voice actors for Simon (YuriLowenthal) and Rossiu (JohnnyYongBosch) also voice, respectfully, [[CodeGeass Suzaku]] and [[CodeGeass Lelouch]], two characters famous for their [[strike: HoYay]] [[FanNickname homolust]].

** Viral dreams about Kamina in drag [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Myq0y9Fl2A&fmt=18]] during the short, "Viral's Sweet Dream."
** Leeron: "Just stick it in! Give it a big, manly twist!" Also, in one episode where Dai-Gurren is sinking, Simon pushes it back out of the water... by pushing it with his drill. Cut to Leeron inside the Dai-Gurren, who feels the impact in his ass.
** At one point in episode 6, Simon leaps over Leeron, but his crotch doesn't quite clear him and Leeron gets smacked in the face by Simon's junk. Leeron responds simply by saying "So warm."

** Then there's Nia and Yoko's haircutting scene at the end of episode 12. The manga adaptation of the scene makes it more blatant.
** Also from episode 6: Gimmy sticking his finger up Simon's butt in the hot springs when ordered by Kamina to "find a hole" (so he can peek at the girls bathing on the other side) which sends Simon flying into the air so that he can see the nude girls for a split second.
*** Which prompts Kamina to smack his own butt repeatedly while yelling "COME ON, GIMMY! COME POKE ME IN THE BUTT!!!"
