Kiyal Bachika (キヤル・バチカ Kiyaru Bachika?) is the youngest of the Black Siblings and the most mischievous. Just like Kiyoh, she was helping out in Dai-Gurren's control room until Episode 13, when she starts aiding in the front-lines piloting a customized Gunmen, Kiyalunga (named after herself), which can transform into a shield and lance that can be wielded by Kittan's Gunmen, King Kittan.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Kiyal's name comes from yaruki meaning 'willingness'.
