  • EAT THIS!
  • "My bro is dead, HE'S GONE! But he's right there on my back, and here in my heart. He lives on as a part of me! If you're going to dig, dig to the heavens! No matter what's in my way, I won't stop! Once I've dug through, IT MEANS THAT I'VE WON! Just who the hell do you think I am?! I'm Simon, I'm not my bro. I'M ME! SIMON THE DIGGER!" Explanation (spoiler) 
  • "HISSATSU! GIIIGGAAAA!! DRRRIIIILLL!! BRRRREEEEAAAAKKKEEER!!!" Explanation 
    • Made even more epic in the second movie, where each Tengen Toppa Gunman combines to form SUPER Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. This leads to HISSATSU!! CHO TENGEN TOPPA GIGAAAAA DRRRRIIIIIIILLLLL BBRRRREEEEAAAKKKKKKEEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!! Then it clashes with the Anti-Spiral Giga Drill Break that causes ENTIRE GALAXIES to be pulled into it.
    • HISSATSUUUUUUUUUUU!!! GIGAAAAAAAAAA!!! DORIRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUU!!! BUUUUUUUUU(*beep*)KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Explanation 
  • Viral Marketing is so easy a Beastman can do it. Explanation 
    • Referenced by at least one fansub: "This is a free fansub! Not for sale, rent, eBay or beastmen!"
  • Simon is such a bad ass that he defeated the first big bad with essentially his car keys is gaining popularity. It started on this wiki, reached a Youtube video of the Simon vs. Lordgenome fight, and will start to speed up.
  • Simon and Viral defeated an entire fleet solely with the power of their combined awesome. Explanation 
  • Yelling "FINISHING MOVE!!!" gives the Giga Drill Breaker its powerExplanation (minor spoilers) .
    • This one actually has a logical basis, in the fact that it's more awesome when they do yell "FINISHING MOVE!!!", if only because they know they're going to win. This can lead to more spiral power being poured into it, making calling the attack a finishing move a viable way to make it one.
