* BrokenAesop: The BeYourself message applied to Simon in the first half of the series in regards to trying to be like Kamina falls a little flat when the TimeSkip happens and Simon grows up to look and act a lot like Kamina.

** The ending of the Gurren Lagann manga shows [[spoiler:a young Beastman girl shyly looking upon Dai-Gurren, heavily resembling Adaine, right down to the clothes]]. Who she is and why she is there is a total mystery, though some theorize that [[spoiler:she is possibly Viral's daughter]].

** Kiyal, one of the only female characters that pilots a mecha, gets sidelined and dropped OutOfFocus after the timeskip, with her mecha combined into Kittan's, wasting an opportunity for her to join the rest of Dai-Gurren, as well as plenty of character development and story potential.

** Kiyal, one of the only female characters that pilots a mecha, gets sidelined and dropped OutOfFocus after the timeskip, with her mecha combined into Kittan's, wasting an opportunity for her to join the rest of Dai-Gurren, as well as plenty of character development and story potential. The manga adaptation, however, gives her more focus, dedicating an entire chapter to establishing her experiences with Team Dai-Gurren and relationship with Kittan. She even gets more development during the [[spoiler:TimeSkip]], right before Kittan goes off to [[spoiler:face the Anti-Spirals with Simon]].

** As if it weren't hard enough on the guy,[[spoiler:he is killed in the film and manga adaptations by the Giga Drill Break before he's even able to finish speaking his own attack's name]].
** Also worthy of mention is [[spoiler:Adiane, who is blown apart by Dai-Gurren's ship in the anime and manga versions before Simon can slam a finishing move, and unlike Cytomander, she was a reoccurring threat beforehand.]]
** Played abundantly straight with the Movie's [[spoiler:Dai-Gan Do-Ten-Kai-Zen, a powerful fusion of 4 major Beastmen mechas who previously gave Team Dai-Gurren a run for their money individually before Simon arrives]]. Despite packing enormous firepower, it fails to even scratch a single member of the team, and is swiftly defeated in one grandiose swoop.

* InferredHolocaust: Who knows how many died while [[spoiler: their galaxies were used as shuriken]]?

* ValuesDissonance: Yoko is ''insanely'' sexualised despite being a fourteen-year-old. (Given that Asuka & Rei, two fourteen-year-olds, are heavily sexualised - more so in the merchandise than in the show - in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', and the creepy sexual content involving Naota and Eri in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', who are ''twelve'', Creator/StudioGainax's track record in this regard is questionable.)
