Lordgenome (ロージェノム, Rōjenomu), once addressed as the Spiral King, is the creator of the Beastmen and the antagonist of the first arc of Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann. He was a cruel and ruthless tyrant who employed legions of Beastmen to systemically eradicate all humankind on the planet surface, commanding them from his gigantic castle of Teppelin.
After his defeat and supposed death at the hands of Simon, Lordgenome becomes an important supporting character in the second arc of the show after he is revived by Rossiu as a Biocomputer seven years later.

- Lazengann Overload: A kamikaze move in which the Lazengann releases many drills and shoots a beam of spiral power, but becomes unstable and may destroy itself. Once the Lazengann is destroyed, the pilot becomes one with the energy, turning it into spiral power. The energy is then turned into the form of a drill, which can be absorbed by ally mechas.
- Unnamed Giga Drill attack: Lazengann summons a massive amount of drills, then weaves them together to form a gargantuan drill larger than the Dekabutsu's head. Despite its size and strength, however, Simon (having just experienced a burst of determination and rage) was able to break the drill and damage Lazengann using only his Lagann.
- Drill Bullets: Appearing only in the Otoko Series, this attack allows Lazengann to shoot bullet-shaped drill missiles. The bullets are powerful enough to temporarily down the Gurren Lagann, though it was able to get up a few seconds later.
