* LetMeGetThisStraight: English dub-only example; the scriptwriter turns the {{egregious}} example of AsYouKnow involving Ritsuko's explanation of Operation Yashima in the original into an example of this. It [[{{Woolseyism}} works]]... about as well as can be expected, anyway.

** The fourth film's Japanese title is "Shin Evangelion", with "Shin" written entirely in katakana, obscuring its intended meaning which could be any of the following: "New" (新), "True/Actual" (真), "God/Divine" (神), "Sleep" (寝), "Pro-" (親), "Syn-" (シン), "Trust" (信), "Core/Heart" (心/芯)...

** ''3.0 + 1.0+1.0'' (Originally announced as ''FINAL''. English subtitle TBA)



''1.0'' and about half of ''2.0'' are, aside from some subtle differences, somewhat streamlined remakes of the first half of the original series (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 ''3.0 + 1.0'' keep 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.

* VisualPun: If you're wondering, 0 (zero) is replaced with "Ø" in the titles, otherwise known as the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empty_set Empty set symbol]]. ''Final'', however, has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_bar the magnitude symbol]], but it would instead be more like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_%28geometry%29 the parallel symbol]]. In this context, you may want to rewrite the last title as: ''Evangelion: Final Parallel''.
** The symbol in ''Final'' is neither a parallel nor a magnitude symbol, but a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repeat_sign repeat sign]] in a musical score.

* XtremeKoolLetterz/[[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe Ye Olde Butcherede Japanese]]: The new title is spelled very oddly. For some reason, it seems to be spelled in the Touhouku dialect. Originally, the gairaigo (transliterated into Japanese) spelling in katakana (alphabet used for foreign words) was ''E-va-n-ge-ri-o-n''. In ''Rebuild'', it's spelled ''Ye-va-n-ge-ri-wo-n'' in katakana. Even though /wo/ is pronounced the same as /o/ in modern Japanese, sort of making sense, the phoneme /ye/ isn't used in modern Japanese anymore, which is weird (neither is /wo/, outside of particles), which this isn't, but they've been using it for Kaworu's name since the original series.

Originally, first 3 films is written with the gairaigo (transliterated into Japanese) spelling in obsolete ''we'' katakana (alphabet used for foreign words) was ''E-va-n-ge-ri-o-n''. In ''Rebuild'', it's spelled ''Ye-va-n-ge-ri-wo-n'' in katakana. Even though /wo/ (ヱ) and the esoteric ''wo'' katakana (ヲ), rather than ''e'' (エ) or ''o'' (オ). The ''w'' is not pronounced the same as /o/ when reading these characters in modern Japanese, sort of making sense, so it is still read as ''Evangerion'' rather than ''Wevangeriwon''. It's not the phoneme /ye/ isn't first time these rarely used characters have been used in modern Japanese anymore, which is weird (neither is /wo/, outside of particles), which this isn't, but they've been using it for the series, as Kaworu's name since has always featured the original series.''wo'' kana.

** The fourth movie has 𝄂 as its subtitle in Japanese, which is the "end" bar in musical notation. However, the Japanese title also includes a colon (:) right before the symbol, which may mean it is in fact subtitled 𝄇, the "repeat" bar line.

* ''Evangelion[[note]]Oddly, Evangelion in the Rebuild series (except for :|| / 3.0+1.0) is spelled as ヱヴァンゲリヲン, using the obsolete characters ヱ (we) and ヲ (wo) instead of エ (e) and オ (o).

** WILLE soldiers are equipped with Heckler & Koch assault rifles and purple BDUs and tac gear, referencing the JSSDF in EoE since they're equipped with the same weapons and gear, although they had G11 and WILLEE uses XM8s.

** [[spoiler:Fourth Impact]] -- [[spoiler:Just like in the original series this is Gendo's ultimate goal, ie: Instrumentality. It's simply been bumped up a number thanks to Shinji accidentally triggering Third Impact without Lilith/Rei/Yui to guide it along the path Gendo desired it to take ... although we all know how well that worked out for him the first time around.]]

** [[spoiler: The scene was extremely ambiguous. Mari was unable to pull the plug out until a very pale figure of Kaworu appeared on screen and afterwards, the Eva shut down completely, allowing Mari to pull out the plug. The ending has Ritsuko wondering who they should thank for this, indicating (just like the soundtrack God's Gift) it was Kaworu's interference that somewhat played on their favor. Of course his image only appeared after she got the entry plug eject also makes it possible that it was Mari, which is why its ambiguous.]]

** While not outright subverted or deconstructed, the basic trope is still warped in an interesting way: In most works, the power of love is what causes the villain's undoing, a force that screws up their plans because they cannot comprehend it. This includes [=EoE=] itself where Rei's love for Shinji makes her betray Gendo. Here, however, [[spoiler:the antagonists explicitly pushed the two of them together with the intentions of exploiting the strength of their connection and set Shinji up to inadvertedly blow up the earth in his attempt to save her. Also, whether he actually saved her or not is currently up in the air as of the GutPunch conga that was 3.0.]]
