* The death of the [[spoiler: Anti-Spiral King.]] The entire reason for his existence was to prevent the [[spoiler: Spiral Nemesis]] from occurring. He had the almost limitless power of [[spoiler: his race's technology at his disposal.]] And yet, he died to a [[spoiler: single human with a drill arm, while everything his race had built over the aeons burned around him. BreakTheHaughty does not even begin to cover it.]]

** And yet, few people seem to recognize that [[spoiler: Simon is the greater man than Kamina, thanks to the latter's status as a DecoyProtagonist, MemeticBadass, and EnsembleDarkhorse]]. But [[spoiler: Kamina himself]] did.

*** After Thymilph's death, Simon is watching the sun come up with a massive smile on his face... and then he realises that [[spoiler:Kamina's dead.]]

** Another interpretation, perhaps erroneous, is even sadder: [[spoiler: Kamina's father, whom he's idolized his entire life, the memory of which has shaped him into the man that he is, died a pointless, inglorious death in the middle of the wasteland, all by himself, having achieved nothing whatsoever of importance.]]

* The [[spoiler: brief shot of Viral playing with his daughter in his alternate reality dream]]. That's the only thing [[spoiler: Viral ever really wanted.]] And yet, [[spoiler: it's the one thing he can't ever have. Viral is a beastman and therefore can't reproduce due to their lack of Spiral energy. To make it even worse, Viral managed to go BeyondTheImpossible and make Spiral energy to form Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, but still won't ever be able to have a family because there will never be another Beast(wo)man who also has it. He does get a wife in the epilogue, but no children and he'll outlive her due to his {{immortality}}.]]

* The fact that Yoko turns off her LotusEaterMachine of her own accord. That a single push of a button must have been about as painful as [[ComicBook/ForTheManWhoHasEverything tearing off her own arm]], yet she is the only member of the entire Gurren-dan to have escaped without any encouraging words from [[spoiler:Kamina's spirit]] or visions of Simon soaring through the skies.
** Actually, she didn't. It's pretty clear that Kamina is the one that turned it off.

** Watching Simon and Yoko grieve after [[spoiler:Kamina's death]]. It is not helped by the entire crew's utter lack of belief in Simon the entire time. Not surprisingly, when Simon overcomes his grief, understands that he has to believe and have confidence in himself, and literally shakes off the tears after his emotional speech, found herself at tear jerker danger level 2.
