* {{Tanabata}}:
** Both Sadamoto’s [[http://17th-angel.tumblr.com/post/39361279568/cake-slice-tanabata-the-meeting-of-the-deities poster]] for Q and Honda’s artwork have set Shinji and Kaworu in a sky full of stars with each under Vega and Altair and with the Milkyway running between them. A direct allusion to the star crossed lovers from the legend and the stars associated with them.
** Furthermore the official theater booklet for 3.0 held interviews by the Khara staff including Megui Ogata and Akira Ishida that described Kaworu and Shinji as having been linked through “past cycles” and only being able to be around each other for a brief time.

* LicensedGame: The first movie was adapted into a video game for PS2 and PSP. Since the first movie only covered events in the anime through episode 6, the rest of the game adapts the TV series up through ''End of Evangelion''.

''1.0'' and about half of ''2.0'' streamline events from episodes of the original series (episodes 1 to 6 and episodes 8 to 12, respectively). After that, in meta-acknowledgement of ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva's]]'' [[GainaxEnding ending]], Shinji becomes ImmuneToFate: while ''3.0'' and the forthcoming ''4.0'' keep some details of the original series intact, they mostly venture straight into AlternateContinuity territory, laying the groundwork for [[Creator/HideakiAnno Anno's]] promised alternate ending for nearly identical characters.

''1.0'' and about half of ''2.0'' streamline events are, aside from episodes some subtle differences, somewhat streamlined remakes of the first half of the original series (episodes (covering episodes 1 to 6 and episodes 8 to 12, respectively). After that, in meta-acknowledgement of ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva's]]'' [[GainaxEnding ending]], Shinji becomes ImmuneToFate: while ''3.0'' and the forthcoming ''4.''3.0 + 1.0'' keep some a few details of the original series intact, they mostly venture straight into AlternateContinuity territory, laying the groundwork for [[Creator/HideakiAnno Anno's]] promised alternate ending for nearly identical characters.

* FollowTheLeader: One ''possible'' explanation for the [[spoiler: TimeSkip]], which had no basis formerly in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', is that it was inspired by Creator/StudioGainax's very recent, GenreBusting, incredibly successful Mecha anime ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Both protagonists suffer [[AllTheOtherReindeer hill-sized hatred from their friends]] during said [[spoiler: TimeSkip]], both fall into circumstances that [[spoiler: [[FrameUp portray them as villains]] and [[PrisonEpisode require their detainment]] ([[{{Angst}} without evidence]])]], and both characters are lead through [[DarkestHour the absolute lowest point in either mythos]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion until that point]] because of it.

** Taking into account that Anno has gone into rehabilitation, then a possible interpretation of [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot some parts of the plot of]] ''3.33'' can be counted as a general slap to the face to the deep end of the scale of cynicism [[spoiler: in the form of WILLE (and by extension, Asuka and Misato): their general attitude, overall bitterness and the obvious lack of communication is what alienates Shinji to leave them at the beginning. If that wasn't enough, the fight at Central Dogma and the following events could have been prevented had Asuka stopped to talk to Shinji, who was clearly confused and willing to reason with her.]] In short, while reckless idealism leads to mistakes, complete cynicism accomplishes nothing, and in fact, can be even worse at times.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Before it can take off, the Wunder needs to use a bunch of spinning power plants to crank up a giant flywheel... [[RuleOfCool seemingly for no practical reason]], since we are explicitly told that its main power source is Unit-01. It then defeats an Angel by spinning its cores around and smashing them into each other.

** Yamaha's still around and selling product 14 years after Near-Third Impact, as Kaworu's piano can attest to.
