Zorthy Kanai (ゾーシィ・カナイ, Zōshī Kanai,Zorthy Kanai?) appears at the end of Episode 7 as a new addition to Team Dai-Gurren. His most recognizable quality is his smoking habit, which is unique among every other character in the series (only seen elsewhere in Leyte.) The name of his Gunmen is the Sawzorthn and later Tengen Toppa Sawzorthn.
Zorthy is killed during the first deep space battle against the Anti-Spiral. In the epilogue, a memorial site, in the form of a sword, is seen in his honour right alongside Kamina and the other members of Team Dai-Gurren.
