Don't underestimate us. We don't care about time, or space or... multi-dimensional whatevers! We don't give a damn about that. Force your way down a path you choose to take, and do it all yourself! That's the way Team Dai-Gurren rolls!

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 gonna 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!


Simon is the central protagonist of the anime and manga series, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. He begins the story as a short, unassuming and lonely young boy, but grows up into a commanding and well-loved man. To many more, he is a legendary hero who overcame impossible odds and stands eternally as beacon for the good of all mankind. 

At the end of the series, he developed so much Spiral Energy in his body during his fight with The Anti-Spiral that he gained supernatural abilities.
