Adiane the Elegant

Adiane the Elegant is a minor antagonist in the anime series Gurren Lagann. She is a member of The Four Supreme Generals and the second to be encountered by Team Dai-Gurren.

She is voiced by Michiko Neya in the Japanese version and Megan Hollingshead in the English version, the former of whom also voices Arachne Gorgon.


She resembles a woman with a scorpion tail, and her personality is dominating, cruel and sadistic. She is affiliated with Water. Her Gunmen fortress, the Dai-Gunkai, is aquatic and resembles a centipede submarine, and her personal Gunmen, Sayrune, is able to swim and fly proficiently, and also transforms into a scorpion-like form. She hates the former princess Nia Teppelin, and takes joy in telling her that her father no longer wants her anymore.

Her final assault on a seafaring Dai-Gurren failed when Sayrune was crippled in an aquatic battle with Gurren Lagann and finally destroyed by the Dai-Gurren's cannons after her attempt to take Nia Teppelin hostage was foiled by Yoko. The Dai-Gunkai was also promptly destroyed from the inside by Gurren Lagann.


  • In the manga, she is reincarnated as a child.
