Tengen Toppa gunmen

The Tengen Toppa Gunmen

Appearing only in the film The Lights in the Sky are Stars, the Tengen Toppa Gunmen are galaxy-sized Gunmen for Team Super Galaxy Dai-Gurren that appear after Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is torn apart by the Granzeboma. Contrary to geniune "Gunmen", these collosal mechas are comprised of pure Spiral Energy, the only connection to their normal mechanical counterparts being the cockpits that each pilot operates from. They are the result of Team Dai-Gurren combining the Laganns they found in the Galactic Spiral Abyss with their own Space Gunmen, resulting in truly inconceivable mechas.

      Tengen Toppa Gurren:
      A galaxy-sized version of Kamina's original custom Gunmen, similar in appearance to Gurren Lagann itself (minus the shoulder pads). It bears two pairs of sunglasses like Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann and wields a katana like Kamina, as well as a cape similar to Kamina's and Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Its design is quite different from the Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann, although technically, the Tengen Toppa Gurren is just a 'second coming' of Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann, since it still has a Tengen Toppa Lagann as its head.

  • Tengen Toppa King Kittan: During the final battle against the Anti-Spiral, in the manga, Kiyal Bachika's Gunmen transformed into the Tengen Toppa King Kittan in honor of her fallen brother. Its design is almost identical to an illustration done by You Yoshinari in one of the many Gurren Lagann staff doujinshi.
