** [[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.]]

** It can be argued that its also a {{Deconstruction}} of said scenario. [[spoiler: [[AllTheOtherReindeer The hatred that the protagonist suffers from his former friends]] serves as catalyst for him to leave them and play into the hands of the BigBad]], the comrades who imprison and despise him are shown to be [[spoiler: [[ShellShockedVeteran ShellShockedVeterans]] whose lifes had been ruined for the constant warfare and the CrapsackWorld they lived and have little civility left]], [[spoiler: its eventually revealed that the [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone protagonist was partially to blame for the current state of the world]] and that his actions lead to the death of many]], and while he goes through [[DarkestHour the worst moment point of his life]], [[TheAtoner and tries to make up for it]] [[spoiler:[[UnwittingPawn his actions]] [[OutGambitted only serve to further the BigBad's plan]], leading him to cross the DespairEventHorizon and lose his will to live]].

** [[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.]]

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: At the climax of the First Act of ''3.0'', the Bridge Crew relay every piece of critical information that Shinji needs to hear . . . except ''one'' - [[spoiler: [[TurnOutLikeHisFather the knowledge that his Father's true intentions are to cause Fourth Impact]], and, by default, Fuyutski's as well]].

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Poor Shinji gets to have at least three such moments in Q. [[spoiler: Once when Kaworu shows him the devastation of [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero which he inadvertedly caused]], once more once the latter really sinks in and he realizes that he [[GutPunch couldn't even save Rei]], and one last time when he realizes that his attempt to fix the situation with the spears has just made things worse.]]

** 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.]]

** All of the English on the computer screens is grammatically and semantically accurate, too. There ''were'' a couple typos in the original release... which were all fixed for the Blu-ray.

** In summary: Gendo and Seele remain as the [[BigBad BigBads]] [[spoiler: until Gendo manages to wipe out Seele]], meanwhile, Fuyutsuki remains as the BeliguearedAssistant of Gendo and is at best an AntiVillain; Wille, [[spoiler: conformed by many ex-members of Nerv ]], are the only organization left fighting against them; however they are also [[AntiHeroes cynical and flawed due to the 14 years of constant war]], [[spoiler: Misato]], their leader, has almost become a KnightTemplar and regards Shinji as the one guilty for the state of the world. Asuka is another member of [[spoiler: Wille]] and also has a strong grudge against Shinji for [[spoiler: having a hand in Third Impact]], yet she remains amongst the few people who still see him as a person rather than an object; Mari is straightforward in her alliangence to [[spoiler: Wille]] and does fight for a good world, it doesn't stop her of being a BloodKnight; [[spoiler: Kaworu position is firmly in the good side, but he's can be manipulative towards an extent]]; Shinji is also one of the good guys, [[spoiler: but after gaining knowledge of his actions, he becomes TheAtoner, without much success at the end]]; lastly [[spoiler: Rei-Q is a completely neutral person who only follows orders until she falls in an existencial crisis]].

* SequelEscalation: The TV series / End of Evangelion ended with Third Impact. [[spoiler:In this version, "Near" Third Impact happens at the halfway mark, Fourth Impact partially occurs in ''3.0'', and there's still one more movie to go.]]

** Beginning at the start of 1.0, with ''Sachiel''. For one thing, the standard military hits the opening Angel with LOTS MoreDakka than in the original, and we get a better look at how destructive the N2 Mine/missile is. None of it works. And we also get a shot of the Angel levitating briefly, something it couldn't do before. Finally, although this is more backhanded, Sachiel vs. Unit-01. Yes, Unit-01 still {{CurbStomp|Battle}}s him. The difference, is that the sequence takes noticeably ''longer'' than it did in the series. Even if Sachiel can't hope to win, he can still [[VillainousValor last a bit longer than before]].
