* MeatSackRobot: [[spoiler: The titular Evangelions piloted by Shinji, Asuka, and Rei, and etc.]] were made from [[spoiler: organic bodies cloned from the Angels]] with armor, weapons, computer networks, and other technological features. They were intended to be this, but some of [[spoiler: the Evangelions]] themselves subvert this trope by managing to develop their own consciousnesses, with the case of EVA-01 (Shinji Ikari's) being due to [[spoiler: having the soul of his mother Yui Ikari due to her body being merged into it]].

* BelligerentSexualTension: [[{{Tsundere}} Asuka Langley Soryu]] [[HeroesWantRedheads and]] [[SociallyAwkwardHero Shinji Ikari]]. EveryoneCanSeeIt. Even TOJI can see it: Asuka starts chewing out Shinji for not bringing their lunches, while he tries to get his side in. Toji tosses off a remark that they're arguing LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Cue double LuminescentBlush (they '''had''' kissed not many days earlier), then simultaneous denial in perfect stereo. But due to their personality problems, neither can actually tell the other, leading to... well, TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Luckily, many fanfiction authors go out of their way to fix these problems. So did the canon author in the Rebuild series; her {{Tsundere}} and his ShrinkingViolet tendencies are toned down considerably.

** Kaworu and Shinji in the manga. Compared to the immediate friendship the two develop in the anime, manga-Kaworu's relationship with Shinji is built around tension and the uneasiness Shinji feels around him. Kaworu is also no less interested in Shinji, but is presented as far more naive and a rather big {{Jerkass}}. Sadamoto described their relationship as two schoolboys who are constantly bickering but secretly desire to impress the other.

* DVDCommentary:
** {{The Movie}}s feature commentaries by Creator/AmandaWinnLee, her husband and Creator/TaliesinJaffe, which are generally [[LoveItOrHateIt beloved/despised]] (some have even nicknamed it "Commentary of Evil") for being mostly riffing, with a lot of conjecture about the possible meanings behind the films' abstract symbolism, and details on the process of dubbing the films and remastering the audio.
** The Platinum Edition of the TV series featured commentaries on several episodes as well, albeit less memorable ones.

* LikeFatherLikeSon: Not very obvious to begin with, but as the series delve deeper into their respective characters, especially near the end of the series, it becomes clear how alike Shinji and Gendo actually are, especially in their problems and shortcomings; both being at their cores, socially-awkward people who are stuck between [[IJustWantToBeLoved their desire to be loved by the people around them]], their problems with forming interpersonal relationships as they fear leaving themselves open to be hurt by other people, as well dragging themselves down through constant low-intensity self-loathing stemming from a subconscious belief that they are unwanted people who are unworthy of love. The main difference between them is really that Gendo has given up hope than anyone but Yui could ever love him, while Shinji still has some hope that he will one day find love and acceptance, though he gets pretty damn close to completely losing that hope over the course of the series.
