to:

** [[spoiler: Part of her attitude towards Shinji in ''3.0'' comes from the fact that Shinji indeed becamebecame a demigod during the events of ''2.0'' and had just awakened to prompt Unit 01 to respond to Asuka's plea for aid; in other words, complete, abject fear of what the kid can do. This gives perspective to her order for him to stay put]].
* IceQueen: She had her moments in the first two films, now its official.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo
* IHaveNoSon: No biological one, but she is cold and aloof toward Shinji [[spoiler: after Third Impact. Possibly subverted, as she still shows concern for him.]]
* IronLady: Minor shades in the first two movie, but come the 3rd...
* KarmaHoudini: Like Gendo, for the time being at least.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler: Subverted. It's her duty to prevent [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Fourth Impact]] and keep an [[ApocalypseMaiden Impact Trigger]] out of Nerv's hands, but Misato cannot bring herself to kill Shinji. Even while Fourth Impact is going on, she tries to stop Eva 13 directly rather than use the DSS Choker.]]
* KnightTemplar: Heads into this direction in ''3.0''.
* KnightInSourArmor: Again in ''3.0''.
* LeanAndMean: She is now.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Possibly considers 3rd Impact to be this judging by its influence on her later action. Misato says very little about herself and there are many mysteries surrounding 3rd Impact so this remains uncertain until 3.0+1.0.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: One way to view her in the 3rd movie.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Urges Shinji to follow his heart at the end of ''2.0'', leading to him kicking off [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]]. If that weren't bad enough, when she has Shinji recovered 14 years later, she and Asuka treat him so badly that they alienates him to the point of letting Rei take him back to Nerv and play right into Gendo's hands. This eventually leads him to cause the Fourth Impact. Had Misato or any of her crew taken the time to explain everything to Shinji rather than passive-aggressively shunning him then ''a lot'' of things could have been avoided.]]
* NotSoDifferent: From [[spoiler:Gendo in ''3.0'']], But in general to Shinji more than anyone. Which could be the [[YouAreWhatYouHate ''real'']] reason for her loathing and mistreatment of him in ''3.0''.
* ParentalNeglect: [[spoiler: When Shinji wakes up after 14 years inside EVA-01's core in ''3.0'', her behavior toward him is curiously similar to Gendo's.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Just like in the original series, Misato is the closest thing to a mother Shinji has first two movies. [[spoiler: Unfortunately this is pretty much torn to shreds by ''3.0'', which is mostly her own fault]].
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Her horrendous treatment of Shinji in ''3.0'' speaks volumes of how low Misato has fallen]]. However...
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:...Even after she TookALevelInJerkass, she can't bring herself to activate the choker when Eva. Mark 09 takes Shinji from the Wunder.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Wants to avenge her father, as in the original. [[spoiler:Then, of course, the harshness of the post-impact world did much to cultivate her already present, but moderate Captain-Ahab-tendencies. Ironically, it seems like she is now out to avenge Kaji, the man who was so much like her father...]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: Ritsuko calls her out on this during the 8th Angel's attack. [[spoiler: After the timeskip, Ritsuko has become her vice-captain and right hand, acting as a voice of reason to balance Misto's impulsiveness.]]
* SheWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler: Misato is the leader of the resistance against NERV in ''3.0''; after years of near-constant combat, she has gained traits that are much like Gendo Ikari's, the very man she is trying to defeat]].
* [[SlipKnotPonytail Slipknot-Hairknot]]: [[spoiler:It comes off when the Wunder is attacked by the Mark 09, but, more realistically, doesn't completely unravel, but just 'decays' into the sideways ponytail it was "made of."]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:She is much colder in ''3.0'', to the point that she put an ExplosiveLeash around Shinji's neck so he can't cause another Impact.]]
** May ultimately be a subverted trope. [[spoiler: While she's certainly colder, when trying to keep Shinji from leaving, she says she will ensure his safety and ultimately can't bring herself to kill him when given the opportunity. There are also several later scenes that show that she's not as cold as she appears. When unable to reach the Awakened Unit-13, instead of worrying about the world, she explicitly worries about ''Shinji''.]] Time will have to tell, however.
* {{Tsundere}}: She has had a longtime on-off relationship with Kaji. She considers him a person that makes her self-destructive and tries to keep away from him as much as she can; the problem is that she turns into jelly when she's with him. Since she insists that she wants nothing to do with him, Kaji has very little qualms in flirting with anyone he comes across, which only serves to incense Misato.
* TheUnfettered: She's ''mostly'' become this by ''3.0'', but not quite to the extent of Gendo.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:To Gendo in ''2.22'' and ''3.33'', and its implied that she's partially aware of this.]]
* WeHaveReserves: Her 3.0 self. As Asuka puts it, [[spoiler:"Prioritize the objective and expede human life is the Captain's Motto after all!" While this is realistic development, it marks a drastic departure from her pre-TimeSkip self who was the most likely person to consider human lives, in contrast to Ritsuko or Gendo.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: You be the judge.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:What ultimately stays Misato's hand. Though he presents a huge danger in NERV's hands and causes two Impacts, Misato still cares about Shinji in some capacity and cannot bring herself to kill him.]] Time will tell what becomes of their bond after this.
* WhatTheHellHero?: ''3.0'' speaks for itself.
* WouldntHurtAChild: [[spoiler:In ''3.0'', she threatens to kill Shinji but ultimately can't bring herself to do it, thus showing she hasn't ''completely'' lost her old feelings for him along with her own better judgement.]]
* YouAreWhatYouHate: She shows anger towards Shinji for [[spoiler:almost destroying the planet]] when it was her encouragement that led him to do so. [[spoiler:When you get right down to it, most of the mistakes Shinji has made have been because ''she''(whether directly or indirectly) put him in the position to make those mistakes. Shinji is pretty much the embodiment of all of ''her'' failures. Misato might treat him with disdain but it's likely the person she ''really'' hates is herself]].
* YouKnowWhatYouDid: [[spoiler: She and her crew subject Shinji this treatment when they bring him back in ''3.0''. While there is some merit to it, Misato is the ''last'' person who should act this way towards him due to her own role in egging him on, yet she has the gall to threaten and use him as a scapegoat to avoid facing her own mistakes.]]

!!!Voiced by: Creator/FumihikoTachiki (JP), Creator/JohnSwasey (EN)

* AdaptationNameChange: [[spoiler:In the series, his "maiden name" was Gendo Rokubungi, and he took on Yui's surname, Ikari. In ''Rebuild'', Ikari is ''his'' name.]]
* BigBad: Shaping up to be this as of ''3.0'', thanks to him [[spoiler:betraying and killing SEELE-01.]]
* TheChessmaster: He's very good at setting people up to act as he needs them and unlike the original series' Gendo, he's willing to even go so far as to [[spoiler:make Shinji think he actually wants a relationship with him to further his goals]]. He cements this in 3.0 when he plays everyone, from [[spoiler:[[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEELE]] to the resident GodInHumanForm, Kaworu to get what he wants.]]
* DragonInChief: He's employed by SEELE but with all of his scientific knowledge and expert manipulation skills, he's clearly the only reason their goals have any hope of coming to fruition. [[spoiler:Additionally, he kills them off to take the position of main villain in name, in 3.0.]]
* GenerationXerox: He is in many ways a dark mirror of what Shinji could grow into.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though reluctant to bond with his son at first, he makes more of an effort to as Rei opens up as a person. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope But all of that was only so he could manipulate Shinji psychologically, making sure that his plans could be advanced.]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk What an asshole.]]]]
%%* KarmaHoudini: Tropes like this should be left out until a series is complete or is cancelled.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:He breaks Shinji in ''3.0'' to ensure his goal is fulfilled. Yep, still the same Gendo [[ManipulativeBastard we know and loathe]].]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Yui's "death" clearly did a number on his grasp of morality.
* TheMaidenNameDebate: Averted; [[spoiler:in this continuity Yui's maiden name was ''Ayanami'']].
* ManipulativeBastard: Par the norm, but he establishes himself as being worse than the original in ''3.0''.
** In detail: [[spoiler: he managed to make Shinji, Kaworu and WILLE to do what he wanted without having to do anything, rellying entirely on the fact that the crew of WILLE would be too emotionally damaged to be anything close to civil towards Shinji.]]
* NonActionBigBad: He's neither an Eva pilot nor possessive of expert combat skills like Misato. Instead, Gendo stays in the background and plots to see his schemes come to fruition.
* NotSoDifferent: To Shinji. As well as Keel Lorenz from the original anime, highlighted by his visor in ''3.0''.
* OneWayVisor: He has a cybernetic visor installed in his head as of ''3.0''.
* PetTheDog: This version of Gendo seems to care considerably more about Rei and Shinji, especially in ''2.0''. [[spoiler:Turns out to be [[SubvertedTrope subverted trope]] by ''3.0'', where its shown he only did it to advance his plans.]]
* PreMortemOneLiner: Gives a long one to [[spoiler:the whole council of SEELE while Fuyutsuki shuts them down, one by one]].
* TheSociopath: [[AdaptationalVillainy He's even ''worse'' than he was in the original series]], which is saying something.

* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: As much as he wants to save Yui, he honestly would prefer to make Shinji cooperate with him and Gendo than manipulating him into doing so.]]
* BeleagueredAssistant: Shows signs of this by ''3.0''. [[spoiler: He also wishes to save Yui, but he clearly does not like breaking Shinji the way he did and wants both Shinji and Gendo to interact with each other]].
* BreakThemByTalking: Does this to [[spoiler:Shinji]] in ''3.0''.
* BrutalHonesty: He reveals the truth behind [[spoiler: Rei, Yui, and what Gendo is willing to do to achieve his goal. Unlike Kaworu this was meant to manipulate Shinji]].
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: The main reason he sees through Gendo's plans is for the sake of Yui; he points out that he is there to fulfill Yui's wishes regarding Shinji, which Gendo seems not to take into consideration.
* MyGreatestFailure: It's hinted that he considered himself at fault for failing to prevent Yui's "death."
* OnlySaneMan: He's decidedly more measured and sane compared to much of the cast.

* AmbiguouslyBi: Flirts with Shinji, but he might be just teasing.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Is completely absent in Rebuild ''3.0.'', [[spoiler:and unlike Touji, Kensuke, or Hikari, he only gets referenced in a passing, off-handed comment by Koji, so whether or not he actually died is unknown.]]
* {{Engrish}}: Kaji's attempts to speak to Americans in ''Rebuild 2.0''. Everyone else who speaks English in the film is [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish really quite good]], but Kaji is ear-crunchingly awful. If it weren't for the subtitles he'd almost be unintelligible. What makes it worse is that it's smack-dab in the middle of a dramatic scene, and the sheer {{Narm}}iness of his accent almost completely ruins the tension.

Touji's younger sister. She was injured badly in the first battle between Eva-01 and Sachiel, and is hospitalized for a long period of time as a result. Her injury is what angers Touji about Shinji at first, leading to him punching Shinji out (though she later scolds Touji for this, saying that Shinji protected them all with Eva-01, and didn't deserve that). Later, when Touji is offered to become the pilot of Eva-03, he agrees on the sole condition that she be transferred to NERV's medical facilities for improved treatment.

In ''Rebuild'', her name is revealed to be Sakura, and in ''2.0.'', she is discharged from the hospital shortly before the Eva-03 incident. [[spoiler:In ''3.0.'', she appears as an adult, now a Second Lieutenant in WILLE. She is the one responsible for watching over Shinji in the brief time he spends there.]]

'''Associated tropes'''

* AlliterativeName: '''S'''akura '''S'''uzuhara.
* AscendedExtra: In ''2.0.'', she goes from TheGhost to TheCameo, [[spoiler:and in ''3.0.'', she's an officer for WILLE.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She gives Shinji the time of day because he was Toji's friend, which is the least she can do considering she's alive because of him (though incidentally also much in spite of him).
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Reappears as a minor character in ''3.0''.]]
* TheGhost: In the original series and manga, but averted in ''Rebuild''. To be precise, she's been mentioned (and not by name) since 1995.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: Mostly, although like most characters she isn't so nice to Shinji. Even so, she's still the ''only'' person in WILLE to treat Shinji with a decent amount of kindness and care during his stay with them.
* NoNameGiven: In all media up until ''Rebuild''.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: [[spoiler:In ''3.0.'' she is at the very least between her late teens to early 20's. She's even older than Shinji and he points out that he thought that she's Toji's older sister.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Her brother was a JerkJock with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold an honest nice side]], she, on the other side, well, refer to below.
* StepfordSmiler: Subverted. [[spoiler: She is putting on her best behavior with Shinji because she wants to remember him as the protector of Tokyo-3 and Toji's friend rather than the cause of Third Impact and the implied death of her elder brother. Deeply angry though she is, she chooses to try to forgive him and care for him rather than see the worst in him and treat him like Misato and the rest of her crewmates do.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: There's no way to justify her appearance in ''3.0'' without mentioning [[spoiler:the 14 year TimeSkip]].

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yui_rebuild_7556.jpg]]
!!!Voiced by: Music/MegumiHayashibara (JP), Creator/StephanieYoung (EN)

* AdaptationNameChange: [[spoiler:Her maiden name was Ayanami in ''Rebuild'', whereas in the series it was Ikari, and Gendo decided to take on her surname upon their marriage]].
* {{Badass}}: Like in the original series, when Unit 01 awakens.
* BerserkButton: She (as EVA 01) goes feral when something threatens Shinji. [[spoiler:This comes into collation in ''3.0'' when Wille is able to procure EVA 01 to power the battleship Wunder by threatening to decapitate Shinji with an explosive DSS choker at the slightest sign of non-cooperation]].
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold:[[spoiler:It's never been made clear neither in the main series nor in the Rebuild movies why Yui subjected herself to be assimilated into EVA 01, what was her degree of involvement with SEELE or Gendo's agenda, or whether her motivations were egalitarian (though the main impression that the situation gives is that she was genuinely trying to save the world). If Gendo is vague (and that guy ''is'' vague), Yui is ''droves worse'']].
* TheLostLenore: To Gendo and Fuyutsuki.
* MadScientist: In ''3.0'' Fuyutsuki reveals that [[spoiler:Yui was the one that came up with the entry plug system and she subjected herself to test it, disappearing in the process.]]
* MaidenNameDebate: Averted with the revelation that [[spoiler:her maiden name was Yui Ayanami]].
* MissingMom: Similar to the original series, she disappeared years ago and is now inside Unit-01.
%%* SciFiBobHaircut
* SealedGoodInACan: Partially carried over from the original series, her soul is Eva Unit-01's OS, and is willing to CurbStompBattle anything that threatens her son - however, unlike in the original series, where she is quite explicitly the ''soul'' in the Eva, she is now described as the ''operating system'', indicating a very different mechanic for the Eva's operation.

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rebuild_seele-01_8062.png]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/{{Mugihito}} (JP), Bill Jenkins (EN)

* TheAgeless: Thanks to having given up his physical body, now existing as a sentient monolith.
* BigBadWannabe: Set up as the BigBad, working from behind the scenes [[spoiler:but when Gendo betrays him, he's utterly helpless to stop his former subordinate as he gives all of SEELE a ReasonYouSuckSpeech while shutting down all their monoliths. ]]
* CrazyPrepared: Designed EVA-13 with a dual entry plug system [[spoiler:not only to break the seal to Lilith's Chamber, but also to have Shinji as a back-up Impact Trigger in case something happens to Kaworu (or vice-versa). On top of that, he installed a backdoor program in Mark.09 to make it go into SuperMode and hack the AAA Wunder, to prevent WILLE from interfering with Fourth Impact. The only thing he didn't planed was for Kaworu to betray them because the Spear of Cassius in Lilith's Chamber was actually a Longinus (by Gendo's doing somehow), making him unable to repair the world and make Shinji happy and thus forcing him to sacrifice himself to weaken EVA-13 so Mari stop Fourth Impact.]] If it weren't for that, SEELE would had won.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Of TheVoice variety. Unlike the original television series, Lorenz is now represented solely by monolith. [[spoiler: The ending of 3.0 all but confirms that he ''is'' the Monolith.]]
* OutGambitted: Even though [[spoiler:Gendo overthrows him and the rest of SEELE, he and the rest of SEELE were still thinking that Gendo was continuing to follow their scenario for Instrumentality for all living beings, killing them as part of the ritual so their soul could rejoin the rest of mankind in Instrumentality. He and the others died never realizing that Gendo double-crossed them and set up events so Fourth Impact would be stopped before Instrumentality is set in motion.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Initially spelled "Keel Lorenz" in the closing credits, this is changed to "Kiel" by the second film. This in fact corrects a spelling error carried from the original series, since the German word for "Keel" (The backbone of a boat or ship) is "Kiel", maintaining both the nautical theme in his name and linguistic accuracy.

!!!Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSeki (JP), Creator/JustinCook (EN)

* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:In ''Rebuild 3.0.'', it's highly implied that he was one of the many victims of Third Impact.]]
* DemotedToExtra[=/=]SparedByTheAdaptation: His part in the story was given to Asuka in ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'', turning him and Kensuke into just ThoseTwoGuys. However whether or not that will change for the next films is uncertain.
* LampshadeHanging[=/=]MythologyGag: In Rebuild, when Kensuke mentions that NERV is looking for a test pilot for the recently arrived Unit 03, the camera pans to Touji, who looks down at his bare popsicle stick and mutters, "Damn, I didn't get it." [[DontExplainTheJoke He's talking about a giveaway contest]].
** In the dub, this becomes "Man, nothing lasts forever," turning it into {{Fauxshadow}}ing.

!!!Voiced by: Music/MegumiHayashibara (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)

* EverythingIsBetterWithPenguins: A genetically-altered penguin, nonetheless.
* ShooOutTheClowns: He becomes less prominent as ''2.22'' [[CerebusSyndrome reaches its climax]], and he is [[DarkerAndEdgier entirely absent]] from ''3.33''. [[spoiler:In the latter case, he probably was killed during Third Impact or died of old age somewhere between the fourteen-year timeskip.]]
* TeamPet: As usual.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Angels]]
!!The Angels
* AdaptationDyeJob: Most prominently Sahaquiel, who goes from "bright orange with creepy eye designs" to [[EverythingsBetterWithRainbows "pulsating black-striped rainbow."]]
* AlienGeometries: Ramiel; see StanceSystem below.
* ArtificialHuman: Mark-04A and Mark-04B at the beginning of ''3.0''. There also appears to be the Nemesis series as a whole. [[spoiler: One attacks the Wunder and Misato uses it to test the power of Wunder]].
* ClimaxBoss[=/=]DiscOneFinalBoss : Zeruel [[spoiler: is the last angel faced by NERV in Tokyo-3, who in this adaptation also condenses elements from Leliel and Armisael, leaves Mari powerless to defeat it, and devours Rei II whole, fusing with Lilith and beginning Third Impact, but not before Shinji's UnstoppableRage has a say in the matter!]]
* CompositeCharacter: There are only 13 angels this time around including [[spoiler: Kaworu]] and the seeds, so a few angels are condensed, starting with the second movie - which condenses roughly sixteen episodes of the original series into a two hour film. The unnamed 7th angel condenses Gaghiel and Matarael, while Sandalphon and Israfel are roughly condensed into the battle with Sahaqiuel, as the film's only tag team battle featuring all three original pilots. Bardiel takes on characteristics of Ireul and Arael, while Zeruel takes on characteristics of Leliel, Armisael, and eventually [[spoiler: Lilith]].
* EldritchAbomination: Just like the original series. [[spoiler: Then of course there's the Wunder, which originally belonged to the Adams and they can override WILLE's control of it]].
* EnergyBeing: The four Giants of Light known as the Adams shown during 2nd Impact.
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: While it is currently a corpse, Lilith's body regenerated its missing legs in the past]].
* HolyHalo: Wunder has two and uses them to fly. Both the 3rd Angel and Sachiel also use one when they are floating.
* KnightOfCerebus: Zeruel.
* LivingShip: The Wunder.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler: Lilith's head is removed during the timeskip]].
* PowerFloats: The 3rd Angel does this in order to escape the base in 2.0. In 3.0 Wunder is not only able to fly itself, but it can make all ships in WILLE's fleet float alongside it.
* RainOfBlood: Sahaquiel's cilia curl up like a spider's legs when it dies and the entire island-sized creature explodes into a fountain of blood that floods most of the city. How they cleaned it all up is anyone's guess.
** [[spoiler: Lilith's head does this when it explodes in front of Gendo]].
* [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Angel In A Can]]: [[spoiler: The 12th Angel of Rebuild is sealed inside Mark-06 during the timeskip]].
* ShapedLikeItself: The [[spoiler:Twelfth Angel has a full body core, meaning it's entire body ''is'' its core. Mark 09 as an Adams' Vessel is also a full body core.]]
* StanceSystem: The ''Rebuild'' incarnation of Ramiel changes form in extreme, often impossible ways to adapt its offense and defense to the constantly changing requirements of the battlefield.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Zeruel appears to do a version of this in ''Rebuild''. After Shinji forces Unit-01 into activation, Zeruel rushes forward and attempts to use its DeathRay that has destroyed everything it has been used on so far, but 01 blocks it with an AT Field [[ImplacableMan without flinching]]. 01's previously cut off arm then regenerates as pure energy and 01 prepares to use it to blast Zeruel away. Zeruel's reaction to having it pointed in its face before firing is to lean back and whimper.
* TearsOfBlood: [[spoiler: Lilith's head looks as if it's crying with a [[SlasherSmile smile]] on its face]].
* WaveMotionGun: Ramiel's energy attack, at its maximum setting, can melt through a ''mountain''.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Present on nearly every Angel, including Lilith.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Evangelions]]
!!The Evangelions
* AdaptationalBadass: In the series, the Evas essentially do a total of five things: Punch, stab, shoot giant man-made guns, [[DeflectorShields project AT fields,]] [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and cause the extinction of humanity.]] Shinji, of all people, [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands greatly adds to that list]] by the end of the second movie.
* ArmCannon: [[spoiler: The rebuilt Unit-02 has a fully cybernetic limb that can be swapped out for one of these.]]
* AttackDrone: [[spoiler: The Evangelion Mark.04 series are automated attack units.]]
* BadassCape: [[spoiler:Mark 09 has one that also functions as a ''rocket''.]]
* TheBerserker: Along with Unit 01, there's [[spoiler:Unit 02 as "The Beast"]].
* CatsAreMean/ PantheraAwesome: [[spoiler:The rebuilt Unit-02's Beast Mode has a feline appearance, complete with paws, elongated canine teeth, and a tail.]]
* ConvenientColorChange: The green parts on Unit 01 glow red when she enters God Mode in 2.0. [[spoiler: Mark-09 turns RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver during 4th Impact to go along with its role as the Vessel of the Adams.]]
** [[spoiler: [[FreezeFrameBonus Unit 13's green parts also briefly turn red after it eats the Twelfth Angel and right before it enters its fully awakened state.]]]]
* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler: Mark 09 is initially equipped with some.]]
* CyberCyclops: Along with Unit 00, [[spoiler:the Mark-09]].
* EnergyBeing: Unit-01 almost becomes one at the end of ''02''. [[spoiler: Eva-13 follows its example in 3.0.]]
* EyeBeams: Unit-01 gains these when she becomes a PhysicalGod at the end of ''2.0'', and [[spoiler: uses them to pull a BigDamnHeroes at the beginning of ''3.0'' by dicing up an artificial Angel that was [[LightIsNotGood roasting]] Asuka.]]
* ExtraEyes: Along with Unit 02, [[spoiler:Mark 08, and Eva-13. Mark 09's regrown head also has twelve glowing red eyes]].
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Mark 09 is hijacked by SEELE in order to ensure it fulfills it programming]].
* FlawedPrototype: Unit 05 is referred to as a prototype but suffers from CripplingOverspecialization: it can't leave Bethany's tunnels without switching to battery power, has no ranged attack capabilities and is restricted to using a freakin' ''jousting lance'' as its WeaponOfChoice as its mechanical pincers can't hold anything else. On the other hand, Unit 05's ass is basically a rocket it uses for {{Flight}}.
* [[spoiler:FlyingSaucer]]: [[spoiler:The Mark.04 units consists of a saucer-shaped core block with [[VerticalMechaFins Evangelion shoulder pylons]] attached to the outside.]]
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:The ''Final'' teaser at the end of ''3.33'' features "Unit-08+02", which is formed from parts of Unit 02 being grafted onto a partially repainted Unit 08]].
* HeroicRROD: Shinji forces Unit 01 to do this against Zeruel. The consequences are [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very grave]]...
* HighPressureBlood:
** Zeruel causes this reaction when it impales Unit-01's torso. Interestingly, Shinji is projectile-vomiting blood at the same time.
** Unit-02 demonstrates the trope in both incarnations of the Zeruel battle: both arms in the original, one arm and a chunk of its head in ''Rebuild''.
** [[spoiler: After Zeruel eats most of it, Unit-00's severed lower legs release an impressive spray of blood.]]
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: Mark-09 grows a new head after it is no longer controlled by Rei Q]].
* HolyHalo: Unit-01, Unit-06, [[spoiler: Mark.09 and Eva-13 gets ''two'' during Fourth Impact]].
* HumanoidAbomination: With the "Abomination" part highlighted by Unit-02's Beast Mode and Unit-01's [[spoiler:and Eva-13's]] God Mode. [[spoiler: Several of the Evas are also Adams.]]
* LightIsNotGood: When a [[spoiler: Eva becomes a Giant of Light it means a Impact is underway, and that said Eva is also an Adam]].
* LuckySeven: Asuka uses Code 777 to [[spoiler:activate the Beast Mode]].
** Less lucky once you [[NumberOfTheBeast decrease every digit by one]] [[RankInflation and realize what it represents]]...
* JoustingLance: Unit-05 uses one to pierce AT-Fields. Said lance is actually [[AllThereInTheManual an "Anti-Angel Extermination Weapon Spear of Longinus Basic Type (Pseudo-Restoration)."]]
* LivingBattery: Eva-01 acts as the [[spoiler:Wunder's]] battery and allows it flight.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler:Mark 09 loses it early on but is still able to function fine during the rest of ''3.0''. Mark-06 loses its own head thanks to Mark 09 to unleash the Twelfth Angel. Unit 2 bites off Mark 9's regrown head while in Beast Mode, but it regenerates and returns the favor.]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Unit 01, Unit 02, Unit 03, [[spoiler: Mark 09]] and [[spoiler: Eva 13]] all sport gaping maws full of sharp teeth during their rampages.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous:
** [[spoiler:Unit-03 after Bardiel takes control of it]], which grows two extra limbs in 2.0 to [[spoiler:hold Eva-01 back as it chokes her]].
** [[spoiler:Eva-13 in ''3.0''.]]
* OneWayVisor: Mark 06.
* PowerFloats: Mark 06 descends from the moon this way.
** [[spoiler:Unit-01 and Unit-13 both start to hover in their Awakened form]].
* PurpleIsPowerful: Along with Unit 01, [[spoiler:Eva-13 in ''3.0'']].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler: Eva-13 eyes turn from Gold to Red when Kaworu's controls are shut off.]]
* SealedBadassInACan: Unit-01 is stuck in a tesseract-shaped cocoon at the beginning of ''3.0'' and ''still'' manages to [[CurbStompBattle annihilate an Angel]].
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: Mark 06 is put inside [[spoiler:Lilith's headless corpse during the timeskip]].
* SinisterScythe: [[spoiler:Mark-09 wields one when assisting Mark 13]].
* SniperRifle
** As in the original, a positron rifle was used by Unit 01 against Ramiel
** [[spoiler:Eva-08 has one as one of its main weapons]].
* SuperPrototype: The Mark 06, which [[spoiler:used to have the potential to become a True Evangelion... until it was turned into the can for the 12th Angel during the timeskip]]. The 4.0 preview implies it might be the basis for the local equivalent of the MP Evas.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Asuka does this in 3.0 by having 2.0 detonate in order to destroy the Mark 09. She succeeds and survives along with most of Eva-02]].
* TheMissingFaction: Eva-07, Eva-10, Eva-11, and Eva-12.
* ThroatLight: Unit 01 in the Zeruel battle.

* MsFanservice: Even moreso than the original. Read the list on [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion the other page]] for why she qualifies. If anything Rei here is portrayed less for FanDisservice and has considerably more warmth to go with her other traits.

She also actually sees the Eva 3 fight for herself and is horrified, suggesting Ritsuko's hinting that ThisIsUnforgiveable and beforehand when disaster hits and NERV picks her up her reaction screams, "Shit."



** [[spoiler: Part of her attitude towards Shinji in ''3.0'' comes from the fact that Shinji indeed became a demigod during the events of ''2.0'' and had just awakened to prompt Unit 01 to respond to Asuka's plea for aid; in other words, complete, abject fear of what the kid can do. This gives perspective to her order for him to stay put]].
* IceQueen: She had her moments in the first two films, now its official.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo
* IHaveNoSon: No biological one, but she is cold and aloof toward Shinji [[spoiler: after Third Impact. Possibly subverted, as she still shows concern for him.]]
* IronLady: Minor shades in the first two movie, but come the 3rd...
* KarmaHoudini: Like Gendo, for the time being at least.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler: Subverted. It's her duty to prevent [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Fourth Impact]] and keep an [[ApocalypseMaiden Impact Trigger]] out of Nerv's hands, but Misato cannot bring herself to kill Shinji. Even while Fourth Impact is going on, she tries to stop Eva 13 directly rather than use the DSS Choker.]]
* KnightTemplar: Heads into this direction in ''3.0''.
* KnightInSourArmor: Again in ''3.0''.
* LeanAndMean: She is now.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Possibly considers 3rd Impact to be this judging by its influence on her later action. Misato says very little about herself and there are many mysteries surrounding 3rd Impact so this remains uncertain until 3.0+1.0.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: One way to view her in the 3rd movie.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Urges Shinji to follow his heart at the end of ''2.0'', leading to him kicking off [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]]. If that weren't bad enough, when she has Shinji recovered 14 years later, she and Asuka treat him so badly that they alienates him to the point of letting Rei take him back to Nerv and play right into Gendo's hands. This eventually leads him to cause the Fourth Impact. Had Misato or any of her crew taken the time to explain everything to Shinji rather than passive-aggressively shunning him then ''a lot'' of things could have been avoided.]]
* NotSoDifferent: From [[spoiler:Gendo in ''3.0'']], But in general to Shinji more than anyone. Which could be the [[YouAreWhatYouHate ''real'']] reason for her loathing and mistreatment of him in ''3.0''.
* ParentalNeglect: [[spoiler: When Shinji wakes up after 14 years inside EVA-01's core in ''3.0'', her behavior toward him is curiously similar to Gendo's.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Just like in the original series, Misato is the closest thing to a mother Shinji has first two movies. [[spoiler: Unfortunately this is pretty much torn to shreds by ''3.0'', which is mostly her own fault]].
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Her horrendous treatment of Shinji in ''3.0'' speaks volumes of how low Misato has fallen]]. However...
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:...Even after she TookALevelInJerkass, she can't bring herself to activate the choker when Eva. Mark 09 takes Shinji from the Wunder.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Wants to avenge her father, as in the original. [[spoiler:Then, of course, the harshness of the post-impact world did much to cultivate her already present, but moderate Captain-Ahab-tendencies. Ironically, it seems like she is now out to avenge Kaji, the man who was so much like her father...]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: Ritsuko calls her out on this during the 8th Angel's attack. [[spoiler: After the timeskip, Ritsuko has become her vice-captain and right hand, acting as a voice of reason to balance Misto's impulsiveness.]]
* SheWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler: Misato is the leader of the resistance against NERV in ''3.0''; after years of near-constant combat, she has gained traits that are much like Gendo Ikari's, the very man she is trying to defeat]].
* [[SlipKnotPonytail Slipknot-Hairknot]]: [[spoiler:It comes off when the Wunder is attacked by the Mark 09, but, more realistically, doesn't completely unravel, but just 'decays' into the sideways ponytail it was "made of."]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:She is much colder in ''3.0'', to the point that she put an ExplosiveLeash around Shinji's neck so he can't cause another Impact.]]
** May ultimately be a subverted trope. [[spoiler: While she's certainly colder, when trying to keep Shinji from leaving, she says she will ensure his safety and ultimately can't bring herself to kill him when given the opportunity. There are also several later scenes that show that she's not as cold as she appears. When unable to reach the Awakened Unit-13, instead of worrying about the world, she explicitly worries about ''Shinji''.]] Time will have to tell, however.
* {{Tsundere}}: She has had a longtime on-off relationship with Kaji. She considers him a person that makes her self-destructive and tries to keep away from him as much as she can; the problem is that she turns into jelly when she's with him. Since she insists that she wants nothing to do with him, Kaji has very little qualms in flirting with anyone he comes across, which only serves to incense Misato.
* TheUnfettered: She's ''mostly'' become this by ''3.0'', but not quite to the extent of Gendo.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:To Gendo in ''2.22'' and ''3.33'', and its implied that she's partially aware of this.]]
* WeHaveReserves: Her 3.0 self. As Asuka puts it, [[spoiler:"Prioritize the objective and expede human life is the Captain's Motto after all!" While this is realistic development, it marks a drastic departure from her pre-TimeSkip self who was the most likely person to consider human lives, in contrast to Ritsuko or Gendo.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: You be the judge.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:What ultimately stays Misato's hand. Though he presents a huge danger in NERV's hands and causes two Impacts, Misato still cares about Shinji in some capacity and cannot bring herself to kill him.]] Time will tell what becomes of their bond after this.
* WhatTheHellHero?: ''3.0'' speaks for itself.
* WouldntHurtAChild: [[spoiler:In ''3.0'', she threatens to kill Shinji but ultimately can't bring herself to do it, thus showing she hasn't ''completely'' lost her old feelings for him along with her own better judgement.]]
* YouAreWhatYouHate: She shows anger towards Shinji for [[spoiler:almost destroying the planet]] when it was her encouragement that led him to do so. [[spoiler:When you get right down to it, most of the mistakes Shinji has made have been because ''she''(whether directly or indirectly) put him in the position to make those mistakes. Shinji is pretty much the embodiment of all of ''her'' failures. Misato might treat him with disdain but it's likely the person she ''really'' hates is herself]].
* YouKnowWhatYouDid: [[spoiler: She and her crew subject Shinji this treatment when they bring him back in ''3.0''. While there is some merit to it, Misato is the ''last'' person who should act this way towards him due to her own role in egging him on, yet she has the gall to threaten and use him as a scapegoat to avoid facing her own mistakes.]]

!!!Voiced by: Creator/FumihikoTachiki (JP), Creator/JohnSwasey (EN)

* AdaptationNameChange: [[spoiler:In the series, his "maiden name" was Gendo Rokubungi, and he took on Yui's surname, Ikari. In ''Rebuild'', Ikari is ''his'' name.]]
* BigBad: Shaping up to be this as of ''3.0'', thanks to him [[spoiler:betraying and killing SEELE-01.]]
* TheChessmaster: He's very good at setting people up to act as he needs them and unlike the original series' Gendo, he's willing to even go so far as to [[spoiler:make Shinji think he actually wants a relationship with him to further his goals]]. He cements this in 3.0 when he plays everyone, from [[spoiler:[[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEELE]] to the resident GodInHumanForm, Kaworu to get what he wants.]]

* GenerationXerox: He is in many ways a dark mirror of what Shinji could grow into.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though reluctant to bond with his son at first, he makes more of an effort to as Rei opens up as a person. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope But all of that was only so he could manipulate Shinji psychologically, making sure that his plans could be advanced.]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk What an asshole.]]]]
%%* KarmaHoudini: Tropes like this should be left out until a series is complete or is cancelled.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:He breaks Shinji in ''3.0'' to ensure his goal is fulfilled. Yep, still the same Gendo [[ManipulativeBastard we know and loathe]].]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Yui's "death" clearly did a number on his grasp of morality.
* TheMaidenNameDebate: Averted; [[spoiler:in this continuity Yui's maiden name was ''Ayanami'']].
* ManipulativeBastard: Par the norm, but he establishes himself as being worse than the original in ''3.0''.
** In detail: [[spoiler: he managed to make Shinji, Kaworu and WILLE to do what he wanted without having to do anything, rellying entirely on the fact that the crew of WILLE would be too emotionally damaged to be anything close to civil towards Shinji.]]
* NonActionBigBad: He's neither an Eva pilot nor possessive of expert combat skills like Misato. Instead, Gendo stays in the background and plots to see his schemes come to fruition.
* NotSoDifferent: To Shinji. As well as Keel Lorenz from the original anime, highlighted by his visor in ''3.0''.
* OneWayVisor: He has a cybernetic visor installed in his head as of ''3.0''.
* PetTheDog: This version of Gendo seems to care considerably more about Rei and Shinji, especially in ''2.0''. [[spoiler:Turns out to be [[SubvertedTrope subverted trope]] by ''3.0'', where its shown he only did it to advance his plans.]]
* PreMortemOneLiner: Gives a long one to [[spoiler:the whole council of SEELE while Fuyutsuki shuts them down, one by one]].
* TheSociopath: [[AdaptationalVillainy He's even ''worse'' than he was in the original series]], which is saying something.

* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: As much as he wants to save Yui, he honestly would prefer to make Shinji cooperate with him and Gendo than manipulating him into doing so.]]

Everyone else who speaks English in the film is [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish really quite good]], but Kaji is ear-crunchingly awful. If it weren't for the subtitles he'd almost be unintelligible.

Touji's younger sister. She was injured badly in the first battle between Eva-01 and Sachiel, and is hospitalized for a long period of time as a result. Her injury is what angers Touji about Shinji at first, leading to him punching Shinji out (though she later scolds Touji for this, saying that Shinji protected them all with Eva-01, and didn't deserve that). Later, when Touji is offered to become the pilot of Eva-03, he agrees on the sole condition that she be transferred to NERV's medical facilities for improved treatment.

In ''Rebuild'', her name is revealed to be Sakura, and in ''2.0.'', she is discharged from the hospital shortly before the Eva-03 incident. [[spoiler:In ''3.0.'', she appears as an adult, now a Second Lieutenant in WILLE. She is the one responsible for watching over Shinji in the brief time he spends there.]]

'''Associated tropes'''

* AlliterativeName: '''S'''akura '''S'''uzuhara.
* AscendedExtra: In ''2.0.'', she goes from TheGhost to TheCameo, [[spoiler:and in ''3.0.'', she's an officer for WILLE.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She gives Shinji the time of day because he was Toji's friend, which is the least she can do considering she's alive because of him (though incidentally also much in spite of him).
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Reappears as a minor character in ''3.0''.]]
* TheGhost: In the original series and manga, but averted in ''Rebuild''. To be precise, she's been mentioned (and not by name) since 1995.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: Mostly, although like most characters she isn't so nice to Shinji. Even so, she's still the ''only'' person in WILLE to treat Shinji with a decent amount of kindness and care during his stay with them.
* NoNameGiven: In all media up until ''Rebuild''.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: [[spoiler:In ''3.0.'' she is at the very least between her late teens to early 20's. She's even older than Shinji and he points out that he thought that she's Toji's older sister.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Her brother was a JerkJock with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold an honest nice side]], she, on the other side, well, refer to below.
* StepfordSmiler: Subverted. [[spoiler: She is putting on her best behavior with Shinji because she wants to remember him as the protector of Tokyo-3 and Toji's friend rather than the cause of Third Impact and the implied death of her elder brother. Deeply angry though she is, she chooses to try to forgive him and care for him rather than see the worst in him and treat him like Misato and the rest of her crewmates do.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: There's no way to justify her appearance in ''3.0'' without mentioning [[spoiler:the 14 year TimeSkip]].

!!!Voiced by: Music/MegumiHayashibara (JP), Creator/StephanieYoung (EN)

* AdaptationNameChange: [[spoiler:Her maiden name was Ayanami in ''Rebuild'', whereas in the series it was Ikari, and Gendo decided to take on her surname upon their marriage]].
* {{Badass}}: Like in the original series, when Unit 01 awakens.
* BerserkButton: She (as EVA 01) goes feral when something threatens Shinji. [[spoiler:This comes into collation in ''3.0'' when Wille is able to procure EVA 01 to power the battleship Wunder by threatening to decapitate Shinji with an explosive DSS choker at the slightest sign of non-cooperation]].
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold:[[spoiler:It's never been made clear neither in the main series nor in the Rebuild movies why Yui subjected herself to be assimilated into EVA 01, what was her degree of involvement with SEELE or Gendo's agenda, or whether her motivations were egalitarian (though the main impression that the situation gives is that she was genuinely trying to save the world). If Gendo is vague (and that guy ''is'' vague), Yui is ''droves worse'']].
* TheLostLenore: To Gendo and Fuyutsuki.
* MadScientist: In ''3.0'' Fuyutsuki reveals that [[spoiler:Yui was the one that came up with the entry plug system and she subjected herself to test it, disappearing in the process.]]
* MaidenNameDebate: Averted with the revelation that [[spoiler:her maiden name was Yui Ayanami]].
* MissingMom: Similar to the original series, she disappeared years ago and is now inside Unit-01.
%%* SciFiBobHaircut
* SealedGoodInACan: Partially carried over from the original series, her soul is Eva Unit-01's OS, and is willing to CurbStompBattle anything that threatens her son - however, unlike in the original series, where she is quite explicitly the ''soul'' in the Eva, she is now described as the ''operating system'', indicating a very different mechanic for the Eva's operation.

!!!Voiced by: Creator/{{Mugihito}} (JP), Bill Jenkins (EN)

* TheAgeless: Thanks to having given up his physical body, now existing as a sentient monolith.
* BigBadWannabe: Set up as the BigBad, working from behind the scenes [[spoiler:but when Gendo betrays him, he's utterly helpless to stop his former subordinate as he gives all of SEELE a ReasonYouSuckSpeech while shutting down all their monoliths. ]]
* CrazyPrepared: Designed EVA-13 with a dual entry plug system [[spoiler:not only to break the seal to Lilith's Chamber, but also to have Shinji as a back-up Impact Trigger in case something happens to Kaworu (or vice-versa). On top of that, he installed a backdoor program in Mark.09 to make it go into SuperMode and hack the AAA Wunder, to prevent WILLE from interfering with Fourth Impact. The only thing he didn't planed was for Kaworu to betray them because the Spear of Cassius in Lilith's Chamber was actually a Longinus (by Gendo's doing somehow), making him unable to repair the world and make Shinji happy and thus forcing him to sacrifice himself to weaken EVA-13 so Mari stop Fourth Impact.]] If it weren't for that, SEELE would had won.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Of TheVoice variety. Unlike the original television series, Lorenz is now represented solely by monolith. [[spoiler: The ending of 3.0 all but confirms that he ''is'' the Monolith.]]
* OutGambitted: Even though [[spoiler:Gendo overthrows him and the rest of SEELE, he and the rest of SEELE were still thinking that Gendo was continuing to follow their scenario for Instrumentality for all living beings, killing them as part of the ritual so their soul could rejoin the rest of mankind in Instrumentality. He and the others died never realizing that Gendo double-crossed them and set up events so Fourth Impact would be stopped before Instrumentality is set in motion.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Initially spelled "Keel Lorenz" in the closing credits, this is changed to "Kiel" by the second film. This in fact corrects a spelling error carried from the original series, since the German word for "Keel" (The backbone of a boat or ship) is "Kiel", maintaining both the nautical theme in his name and linguistic accuracy.

* LampshadeHanging[=/=]MythologyGag: In Rebuild, when Kensuke mentions that NERV is looking for a test pilot for the recently arrived Unit 03, the camera pans to Touji, who looks down at his bare popsicle stick and mutters, "Damn, I didn't get it."

* ClimaxBoss[=/=]DiscOneFinalBoss : Zeruel [[spoiler: is the last angel faced by NERV in Tokyo-3, who in this adaptation also condenses elements from Leliel and Armisael, leaves Mari powerless to defeat it, and devours Rei II whole, fusing with Lilith and beginning Third Impact, but not before Shinji's UnstoppableRage has a say in the matter!]]
* CompositeCharacter: There are only 13 angels this time around including [[spoiler: Kaworu]] and the seeds, so a few angels are condensed, starting with the second movie - which condenses roughly sixteen episodes of the original series into a two hour film. The unnamed 7th angel condenses Gaghiel and Matarael, while Sandalphon and Israfel are roughly condensed into the battle with Sahaqiuel, as the film's only tag team battle featuring all three original pilots. Bardiel takes on characteristics of Ireul and Arael, while Zeruel takes on characteristics of Leliel, Armisael, and eventually [[spoiler: Lilith]].
* EldritchAbomination: Just like the original series. [[spoiler: Then of course there's the Wunder, which originally belonged to the Adams and they can override WILLE's control of it]].
* EnergyBeing: The four Giants of Light known as the Adams shown during 2nd Impact.
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: While it is currently a corpse, Lilith's body regenerated its missing legs in the past]].
* HolyHalo: Wunder has two and uses them to fly. Both the 3rd Angel and Sachiel also use one when they are floating.
* KnightOfCerebus: Zeruel.
* LivingShip: The Wunder.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler: Lilith's head is removed during the timeskip]].
* PowerFloats: The 3rd Angel does this in order to escape the base in 2.0. In 3.0 Wunder is not only able to fly itself, but it can make all ships in WILLE's fleet float alongside it.
* RainOfBlood: Sahaquiel's cilia curl up like a spider's legs when it dies and the entire island-sized creature explodes into a fountain of blood that floods most of the city. How they cleaned it all up is anyone's guess.
** [[spoiler: Lilith's head does this when it explodes in front of Gendo]].
* [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Angel In A Can]]: [[spoiler: The 12th Angel of Rebuild is sealed inside Mark-06 during the timeskip]].
* ShapedLikeItself: The [[spoiler:Twelfth Angel has a full body core, meaning it's entire body ''is'' its core. Mark 09 as an Adams' Vessel is also a full body core.]]
* StanceSystem: The ''Rebuild'' incarnation of Ramiel changes form in extreme, often impossible ways to adapt its offense and defense to the constantly changing requirements of the battlefield.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Zeruel appears to do a version of this in ''Rebuild''. After Shinji forces Unit-01 into activation, Zeruel rushes forward and attempts to use its DeathRay that has destroyed everything it has been used on so far, but 01 blocks it with an AT Field [[ImplacableMan without flinching]]. 01's previously cut off arm then regenerates as pure energy and 01 prepares to use it to blast Zeruel away. Zeruel's reaction to having it pointed in its face before firing is to lean back and whimper.
* TearsOfBlood: [[spoiler: Lilith's head looks as if it's crying with a [[SlasherSmile smile]] on its face]].
* WaveMotionGun: Ramiel's energy attack, at its maximum setting, can melt through a ''mountain''.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Present on nearly every Angel, including Lilith.

* ArmCannon: [[spoiler: The rebuilt Unit-02 has a fully cybernetic limb that can be swapped out for one of these.]]
* AttackDrone: [[spoiler: The Evangelion Mark.04 series are automated attack units.]]
* BadassCape: [[spoiler:Mark 09 has one that also functions as a ''rocket''.]]

* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler: Mark 09 is initially equipped with some.]]

* EnergyBeing: Unit-01 almost becomes one at the end of ''02''. [[spoiler: Eva-13 follows its example in 3.0.]]
* EyeBeams: Unit-01 gains these when she becomes a PhysicalGod at the end of ''2.0'', and [[spoiler: uses them to pull a BigDamnHeroes at the beginning of ''3.0'' by dicing up an artificial Angel that was [[LightIsNotGood roasting]] Asuka.]]
* ExtraEyes: Along with Unit 02, [[spoiler:Mark 08, and Eva-13. Mark 09's regrown head also has twelve glowing red eyes]].
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Mark 09 is hijacked by SEELE in order to ensure it fulfills it programming]].
* FlawedPrototype: Unit 05 is referred to as a prototype but suffers from CripplingOverspecialization: it can't leave Bethany's tunnels without switching to battery power, has no ranged attack capabilities and is restricted to using a freakin' ''jousting lance'' as its WeaponOfChoice as its mechanical pincers can't hold anything else. On the other hand, Unit 05's ass is basically a rocket it uses for {{Flight}}.
* [[spoiler:FlyingSaucer]]: [[spoiler:The Mark.04 units consists of a saucer-shaped core block with [[VerticalMechaFins Evangelion shoulder pylons]] attached to the outside.]]
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:The ''Final'' teaser at the end of ''3.33'' features "Unit-08+02", which is formed from parts of Unit 02 being grafted onto a partially repainted Unit 08]].
* HeroicRROD: Shinji forces Unit 01 to do this against Zeruel. The consequences are [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very grave]]...
* HighPressureBlood:
** Zeruel causes this reaction when it impales Unit-01's torso. Interestingly, Shinji is projectile-vomiting blood at the same time.
** Unit-02 demonstrates the trope in both incarnations of the Zeruel battle: both arms in the original, one arm and a chunk of its head in ''Rebuild''.
** [[spoiler: After Zeruel eats most of it, Unit-00's severed lower legs release an impressive spray of blood.]]
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: Mark-09 grows a new head after it is no longer controlled by Rei Q]].
* HolyHalo: Unit-01, Unit-06, [[spoiler: Mark.09 and Eva-13 gets ''two'' during Fourth Impact]].
* HumanoidAbomination: With the "Abomination" part highlighted by Unit-02's Beast Mode and Unit-01's [[spoiler:and Eva-13's]] God Mode. [[spoiler: Several of the Evas are also Adams.]]
* LightIsNotGood: When a [[spoiler: Eva becomes a Giant of Light it means a Impact is underway, and that said Eva is also an Adam]].
* LuckySeven: Asuka uses Code 777 to [[spoiler:activate the Beast Mode]].
** Less lucky once you [[NumberOfTheBeast decrease every digit by one]] [[RankInflation and realize what it represents]]...
* JoustingLance: Unit-05 uses one to pierce AT-Fields. Said lance is actually [[AllThereInTheManual an "Anti-Angel Extermination Weapon Spear of Longinus Basic Type (Pseudo-Restoration)."]]
* LivingBattery: Eva-01 acts as the [[spoiler:Wunder's]] battery and allows it flight.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler:Mark 09 loses it early on but is still able to function fine during the rest of ''3.0''. Mark-06 loses its own head thanks to Mark 09 to unleash the Twelfth Angel. Unit 2 bites off Mark 9's regrown head while in Beast Mode, but it regenerates and returns the favor.]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Unit 01, Unit 02, Unit 03, [[spoiler: Mark 09]] and [[spoiler: Eva 13]] all sport gaping maws full of sharp teeth during their rampages.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous:

* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler: Eva-13 eyes turn from Gold to Red when Kaworu's controls are shut off.]]
* SealedBadassInACan: Unit-01 is stuck in a tesseract-shaped cocoon at the beginning of ''3.0'' and ''still'' manages to [[CurbStompBattle annihilate an Angel]].
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: Mark 06 is put inside [[spoiler:Lilith's headless corpse during the timeskip]].
* SinisterScythe: [[spoiler:Mark-09 wields one when assisting Mark 13]].
* SniperRifle
** As in the original, a positron rifle was used by Unit 01 against Ramiel
** [[spoiler:Eva-08 has one as one of its main weapons]].
* SuperPrototype: The Mark 06, which [[spoiler:used to have the potential to become a True Evangelion... until it was turned into the can for the 12th Angel during the timeskip]]. The 4.0 preview implies it might be the basis for the local equivalent of the MP Evas.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Asuka does this in 3.0 by having 2.0 detonate in order to destroy the Mark 09. She succeeds and survives along with most of Eva-02]].
* TheMissingFaction: Eva-07, Eva-10, Eva-11, and Eva-12.
* ThroatLight: Unit 01 in the Zeruel battle.

----

to:

** [[spoiler: Part of her attitude towards Shinji in ''3.0'' comes from the fact that Shinji indeed became a demigod during the events of ''2.0'' and had just awakened to prompt Unit 01 to respond to Asuka's plea for aid; in other words, complete, abject fear of what the kid can do. This gives perspective to her order for him to stay put]].
* IceQueen: She had her moments in the first two films, now its official.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo
* IHaveNoSon: No biological one, but she is cold and aloof toward Shinji [[spoiler: after Third Impact. Possibly subverted, as she still shows concern for him.]]
* IronLady: Minor shades in the first two movie, but come the 3rd...
* KarmaHoudini: Like Gendo, for the time being at least.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler: Subverted. It's her duty to prevent [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Fourth Impact]] and keep an [[ApocalypseMaiden Impact Trigger]] out of Nerv's hands, but Misato cannot bring herself to kill Shinji. Even while Fourth Impact is going on, she tries to stop Eva 13 directly rather than use the DSS Choker.]]
* KnightTemplar: Heads into this direction in ''3.0''.
* KnightInSourArmor: Again in ''3.0''.
* LeanAndMean: She is now.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Possibly considers 3rd Impact to be this judging by its influence on her later action. Misato says very little about herself and there are many mysteries surrounding 3rd Impact so this remains uncertain until 3.0+1.0.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: One way to view her in the 3rd movie.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Urges Shinji to follow his heart at the end of ''2.0'', leading to him kicking off [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]]. If that weren't bad enough, when she has Shinji recovered 14 years later, she and Asuka treat him so badly that they alienates him to the point of letting Rei take him back to Nerv and play right into Gendo's hands. This eventually leads him to cause the Fourth Impact. Had Misato or any of her crew taken the time to explain everything to Shinji rather than passive-aggressively shunning him then ''a lot'' of things could have been avoided.]]
* NotSoDifferent: From [[spoiler:Gendo in ''3.0'']], But in general to Shinji more than anyone. Which could be the [[YouAreWhatYouHate ''real'']] reason for her loathing and mistreatment of him in ''3.0''.
* ParentalNeglect: [[spoiler: When Shinji wakes up after 14 years inside EVA-01's core in ''3.0'', her behavior toward him is curiously similar to Gendo's.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Just like in the original series, Misato is the closest thing to a mother Shinji has first two movies. [[spoiler: Unfortunately this is pretty much torn to shreds by ''3.0'', which is mostly her own fault]].
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Her horrendous treatment of Shinji in ''3.0'' speaks volumes of how low Misato has fallen]]. However...
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:...Even after she TookALevelInJerkass, she can't bring herself to activate the choker when Eva. Mark 09 takes Shinji from the Wunder.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Wants to avenge her father, as in the original. [[spoiler:Then, of course, the harshness of the post-impact world did much to cultivate her already present, but moderate Captain-Ahab-tendencies. Ironically, it seems like she is now out to avenge Kaji, the man who was so much like her father...]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: Ritsuko calls her out on this during the 8th Angel's attack. [[spoiler: After the timeskip, Ritsuko has become her vice-captain and right hand, acting as a voice of reason to balance Misto's impulsiveness.]]
* SheWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler: Misato is the leader of the resistance against NERV in ''3.0''; after years of near-constant combat, she has gained traits that are much like Gendo Ikari's, the very man she is trying to defeat]].
* [[SlipKnotPonytail Slipknot-Hairknot]]: [[spoiler:It comes off when the Wunder is attacked by the Mark 09, but, more realistically, doesn't completely unravel, but just 'decays' into the sideways ponytail it was "made of."]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:She is much colder in ''3.0'', to the point that she put an ExplosiveLeash around Shinji's neck so he can't cause another Impact.]]
** May ultimately be a subverted trope. [[spoiler: While she's certainly colder, when trying to keep Shinji from leaving, she says she will ensure his safety and ultimately can't bring herself to kill him when given the opportunity. There are also several later scenes that show that she's not as cold as she appears. When unable to reach the Awakened Unit-13, instead of worrying about the world, she explicitly worries about ''Shinji''.]] Time will have to tell, however.
* {{Tsundere}}: She has had a longtime on-off relationship with Kaji. She considers him a person that makes her self-destructive and tries to keep away from him as much as she can; the problem is that she turns into jelly when she's with him. Since she insists that she wants nothing to do with him, Kaji has very little qualms in flirting with anyone he comes across, which only serves to incense Misato.
* TheUnfettered: She's ''mostly'' become this by ''3.0'', but not quite to the extent of Gendo.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:To Gendo in ''2.22'' and ''3.33'', and its implied that she's partially aware of this.]]
* WeHaveReserves: Her 3.0 self. As Asuka puts it, [[spoiler:"Prioritize the objective and expede human life is the Captain's Motto after all!" While this is realistic development, it marks a drastic departure from her pre-TimeSkip self who was the most likely person to consider human lives, in contrast to Ritsuko or Gendo.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: You be the judge.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:What ultimately stays Misato's hand. Though he presents a huge danger in NERV's hands and causes two Impacts, Misato still cares about Shinji in some capacity and cannot bring herself to kill him.]] Time will tell what becomes of their bond after this.
* WhatTheHellHero?: ''3.0'' speaks for itself.
* WouldntHurtAChild: [[spoiler:In ''3.0'', she threatens to kill Shinji but ultimately can't bring herself to do it, thus showing she hasn't ''completely'' lost her old feelings for him along with her own better judgement.]]
* YouAreWhatYouHate: She shows anger towards Shinji for [[spoiler:almost destroying the planet]] when it was her encouragement that led him to do so. [[spoiler:When you get right down to it, most of the mistakes Shinji has made have been because ''she''(whether directly or indirectly) put him in the position to make those mistakes. Shinji is pretty much the embodiment of all of ''her'' failures. Misato might treat him with disdain but it's likely the person she ''really'' hates is herself]].
* YouKnowWhatYouDid: [[spoiler: She and her crew subject Shinji this treatment when they bring him back in ''3.0''. While there is some merit to it, Misato is the ''last'' person who should act this way towards him due to her own role in egging him on, yet she has the gall to threaten and use him as a scapegoat to avoid facing her own mistakes.]]

* TheChessmaster: He's very good at setting people up to act as he needs them and unlike the original series' Gendo, he's willing to even go so far as to [[spoiler:make Shinji think he actually wants a relationship with him to further his goals]].

* NonActionBigBad: He's neither an Eva pilot nor possessive of expert combat skills like Misato. Instead, Gendo stays in the background and plots to see his schemes come to fruition.

Touji's younger sister. She was injured badly in the first battle between Eva-01 and Sachiel, and is hospitalized for a long period of time as a result. Her injury is what angers Touji about Shinji at first, leading to him punching Shinji out (though she later scolds Touji for this, saying that Shinji protected them all with Eva-01, and didn't deserve that). Later, when Touji is offered to become the pilot of Eva-03, he agrees on the sole condition that she be transferred to NERV's medical facilities for improved treatment.

In ''Rebuild'', her name is revealed to be Sakura, and in ''2.0.'', she is discharged from the hospital shortly before the Eva-03 incident. [[spoiler:In ''3.0.'', she appears as an adult, now a Second Lieutenant in WILLE. She is the one responsible for watching over Shinji in the brief time he spends there.]]

'''Associated tropes'''

* AlliterativeName: '''S'''akura '''S'''uzuhara.
* AscendedExtra: In ''2.0.'', she goes from TheGhost to TheCameo, [[spoiler:and in ''3.0.'', she's an officer for WILLE.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She gives Shinji the time of day because he was Toji's friend, which is the least she can do considering she's alive because of him (though incidentally also much in spite of him).
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Reappears as a minor character in ''3.0''.]]
* TheGhost: In the original series and manga, but averted in ''Rebuild''. To be precise, she's been mentioned (and not by name) since 1995.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: Mostly, although like most characters she isn't so nice to Shinji. Even so, she's still the ''only'' person in WILLE to treat Shinji with a decent amount of kindness and care during his stay with them.
* NoNameGiven: In all media up until ''Rebuild''.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: [[spoiler:In ''3.0.'' she is at the very least between her late teens to early 20's. She's even older than Shinji and he points out that he thought that she's Toji's older sister.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Her brother was a JerkJock with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold an honest nice side]], she, on the other side, well, refer to below.
* StepfordSmiler: Subverted. [[spoiler: She is putting on her best behavior with Shinji because she wants to remember him as the protector of Tokyo-3 and Toji's friend rather than the cause of Third Impact and the implied death of her elder brother. Deeply angry though she is, she chooses to try to forgive him and care for him rather than see the worst in him and treat him like Misato and the rest of her crewmates do.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: There's no way to justify her appearance in ''3.0'' without mentioning [[spoiler:the 14 year TimeSkip]].

* AdaptationNameChange: [[spoiler:Her maiden name was Ayanami in ''Rebuild'', whereas in the series it was Ikari, and Gendo decided to take on her surname upon their marriage]].
* {{Badass}}: Like in the original series, when Unit 01 awakens.
* BerserkButton: She (as EVA 01) goes feral when something threatens Shinji. [[spoiler:This comes into collation in ''3.0'' when Wille is able to procure EVA 01 to power the battleship Wunder by threatening to decapitate Shinji with an explosive DSS choker at the slightest sign of non-cooperation]].
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold:[[spoiler:It's never been made clear neither in the main series nor in the Rebuild movies why Yui subjected herself to be assimilated into EVA 01, what was her degree of involvement with SEELE or Gendo's agenda, or whether her motivations were egalitarian (though the main impression that the situation gives is that she was genuinely trying to save the world). If Gendo is vague (and that guy ''is'' vague), Yui is ''droves worse'']].
* TheLostLenore: To Gendo and Fuyutsuki.

* TheAgeless: Thanks to having given up his physical body, now existing as a sentient monolith.
* BigBadWannabe: Set up as the BigBad, working from behind the scenes [[spoiler:but when Gendo betrays him, he's utterly helpless to stop his former subordinate as he gives all of SEELE a ReasonYouSuckSpeech while shutting down all their monoliths. ]]
* CrazyPrepared: Designed EVA-13 with a dual entry plug system [[spoiler:not only to break the seal to Lilith's Chamber, but also to have Shinji as a back-up Impact Trigger in case something happens to Kaworu (or vice-versa). On top of that, he installed a backdoor program in Mark.09 to make it go into SuperMode and hack the AAA Wunder, to prevent WILLE from interfering with Fourth Impact. The only thing he didn't planed was for Kaworu to betray them because the Spear of Cassius in Lilith's Chamber was actually a Longinus (by Gendo's doing somehow), making him unable to repair the world and make Shinji happy and thus forcing him to sacrifice himself to weaken EVA-13 so Mari stop Fourth Impact.]] If it weren't for that, SEELE would had won.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Of TheVoice variety. Unlike the original television series, Lorenz is now represented solely by monolith. [[spoiler: The ending of 3.0 all but confirms that he ''is'' the Monolith.]]
* OutGambitted: Even though [[spoiler:Gendo overthrows him and the rest of SEELE, he and the rest of SEELE were still thinking that Gendo was continuing to follow their scenario for Instrumentality for all living beings, killing them as part of the ritual so their soul could rejoin the rest of mankind in Instrumentality. He and the others died never realizing that Gendo double-crossed them and set up events so Fourth Impact would be stopped before Instrumentality is set in motion.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Initially spelled "Keel Lorenz" in the closing credits, this is changed to "Kiel" by the second film. This in fact corrects a spelling error carried from the original series, since the German word for "Keel" (The backbone of a boat or ship) is "Kiel", maintaining both the nautical theme in his name and linguistic accuracy.

* CompositeCharacter: There are only 13 angels this time around including [[spoiler: Kaworu]] and the seeds, so a few angels are condensed, starting with the second movie - which condenses roughly sixteen episodes of the original series into a two hour film. The unnamed 7th angel condenses Gaghiel and Matarael, while Sandalphon and Israfel are roughly condensed into the battle with Sahaqiuel, as the film's only tag team battle featuring all three original pilots. Bardiel takes on characteristics of Ireul and Arael, while Zeruel takes on characteristics of Leliel, Armisael, and eventually [[spoiler: Lilith]].
* EldritchAbomination: Just like the original series. [[spoiler: Then of course there's the Wunder, which originally belonged to the Adams and they can override WILLE's control of it]].
* EnergyBeing: The four Giants of Light known as the Adams shown during 2nd Impact.

* PowerFloats: The 3rd Angel does this in order to escape the base in 2.0. In 3.0 Wunder is not only able to fly itself, but it can make all ships in WILLE's fleet float alongside it.
* RainOfBlood: Sahaquiel's cilia curl up like a spider's legs when it dies and the entire island-sized creature explodes into a fountain of blood that floods most of the city. How they cleaned it all up is anyone's guess.
** [[spoiler: Lilith's head does this when it explodes in front of Gendo]].
* [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Angel In A Can]]: [[spoiler: The 12th Angel of Rebuild is sealed inside Mark-06 during the timeskip]].
* ShapedLikeItself: The [[spoiler:Twelfth Angel has a full body core, meaning it's entire body ''is'' its core. Mark 09 as an Adams' Vessel is also a full body core.]]
* StanceSystem: The ''Rebuild'' incarnation of Ramiel changes form in extreme, often impossible ways to adapt its offense and defense to the constantly changing requirements of the battlefield.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Zeruel appears to do a version of this in ''Rebuild''. After Shinji forces Unit-01 into activation, Zeruel rushes forward and attempts to use its DeathRay that has destroyed everything it has been used on so far, but 01 blocks it with an AT Field [[ImplacableMan without flinching]]. 01's previously cut off arm then regenerates as pure energy and 01 prepares to use it to blast Zeruel away. Zeruel's reaction to having it pointed in its face before firing is to lean back and whimper.
* TearsOfBlood: [[spoiler: Lilith's head looks as if it's crying with a [[SlasherSmile smile]] on its face]].
* WaveMotionGun: Ramiel's energy attack, at its maximum setting, can melt through a ''mountain''.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Present on nearly every Angel, including Lilith.

* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Mark 09 is hijacked by SEELE in order to ensure it fulfills it programming]].
* FlawedPrototype: Unit 05 is referred to as a prototype but suffers from CripplingOverspecialization: it can't leave Bethany's tunnels without switching to battery power, has no ranged attack capabilities and is restricted to using a freakin' ''jousting lance'' as its WeaponOfChoice as its mechanical pincers can't hold anything else. On the other hand, Unit 05's ass is basically a rocket it uses for {{Flight}}.

* HeroicRROD: Shinji forces Unit 01 to do this against Zeruel. The consequences are [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very grave]]...
* HighPressureBlood:
** Zeruel causes this reaction when it impales Unit-01's torso. Interestingly, Shinji is projectile-vomiting blood at the same time.
** Unit-02 demonstrates the trope in both incarnations of the Zeruel battle: both arms in the original, one arm and a chunk of its head in ''Rebuild''.
** [[spoiler: After Zeruel eats most of it, Unit-00's severed lower legs release an impressive spray of blood.]]
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: Mark-09 grows a new head after it is no longer controlled by Rei Q]].

* LightIsNotGood: When a [[spoiler: Eva becomes a Giant of Light it means a Impact is underway, and that said Eva is also an Adam]].
* LuckySeven: Asuka uses Code 777 to [[spoiler:activate the Beast Mode]].
** Less lucky once you [[NumberOfTheBeast decrease every digit by one]] [[RankInflation and realize what it represents]]...

* LivingBattery: Eva-01 acts as the [[spoiler:Wunder's]] battery and allows it flight.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler:Mark 09 loses it early on but is still able to function fine during the rest of ''3.0''. Mark-06 loses its own head thanks to Mark 09 to unleash the Twelfth Angel. Unit 2 bites off Mark 9's regrown head while in Beast Mode, but it regenerates and returns the favor.]]

** [[spoiler:Eva-13 in ''3.0''.]]
* OneWayVisor: Mark 06.
* PowerFloats: Mark 06 descends from the moon this way.
** [[spoiler:Unit-01 and Unit-13 both start to hover in their Awakened form]].

* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler: Eva-13 eyes turn from Gold to Red when Kaworu's controls are shut off.]]
* SealedBadassInACan: Unit-01 is stuck in a tesseract-shaped cocoon at the beginning of ''3.0'' and ''still'' manages to [[CurbStompBattle annihilate an Angel]].
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: Mark 06 is put inside [[spoiler:Lilith's headless corpse during the timeskip]].

** [[spoiler:Eva-08 has one as one of its main weapons]].
* SuperPrototype: The Mark 06, which [[spoiler:used to have the potential to become a True Evangelion... until it was turned into the can for the 12th Angel during the timeskip]]. The 4.0 preview implies it might be the basis for the local equivalent of the MP Evas.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Asuka does this in 3.0 by having 2.0 detonate in order to destroy the Mark 09. She succeeds and survives along with most of Eva-02]].

* StartOfDarkness:
* TooDumbToLive: As angry as she is at Shinji[[spoiler: and at ''herself'']], her, Asuka, and her crew's treatment of him could end up being their STUPIDEST mistake of all. "3.0" is almost entirely a small demonstration. Because as all fans know, when it comes to Evangelion there's two little unspoken rules: [[spoiler: 1, Shinji gets screwed over, and 2, [[TheDogBitesBack Shinji eventually (though usually unintentionally) screws over ''everyone'' who screwed him over]]]]. If Misato and everyone continue to treat Shinji the way they have in the final movie as they did ''3.0'' then its all too possible that [[spoiler: he will end up in the SAME emotional and mental state he was in during ''End of Evangelion'', which we all know what that brought about and this time around it could be ''much worse'']].
