''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6313201/1 Strategic Cyborg Evangelion]]'' is a RealRobotGenre crossover between ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''VideoGame/HalfLife''. Its basic premise is simple: what if the Black Mesa Incident and the subsequent Combine invasion was Second Impact? And what if it happened two years ahead of SEELE's schedule, massively interfering with their plans? Humanity recovered from this calamity and even managed to carve out a small interstellar fiefdom... only for the Angels to start attacking Earth in 2041, 23 years after the Combine occupation force was defeated. And the G-Man is definitely up to something as well.

There are also two omakes. ''The Present'' serves as a {{prequel}} of sorts by introducing Rei's character as a PintsizedPowerhouse ActionGirl, while ''Valentine Shenanigans'' has Kaworu learning the hard way that most bishies have an UnwantedHarem.

* AllPlanetsAreEarthLike - Averted. It's specifically mentioned that Earth is the only planet where humans can survive without EVA equipment. Three other Goldilocks planets have been colonized but only Earth has natural surface water.
** Case in point is Polygonus: while being a Goldilocks planet, it has higher surface gravity, an unbreathable nitrogen-helium-[=CO2=] atmosphere and no surface water. The former two is being corrected via {{terraform}}ing.
*** HeavyWorlder is also averted. Children born on Polygonus are mentioned to have a noticeably higher risk of developing skeletal deformities as simply being born on a planet with 1.1g does not make a human adapted to it.

* ItCanThink - Shephard realizes the Angels are intelligent after re-watching footage of the battle against Shamshel and notices her trying to keep Unit-01 away from the Spear of Longinus. Even during the battle itself, he immediately recognized Shamshel's use of the city buildings as hard cover against Rei's sniping for what it was.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy - Shamshel [[spoiler:deliberately uses the city's buildings as hard cover against Unit-00's [[{{BFG}} assault cannon]] and only returns fire to keep Rei off-balance while the Angel concentrates her efforts on Unit-01. As soon as she was in the position to do so, she destroyed Unit-01's weapon and instantly ensnared the Eva to incapacitate it, while she focused her AT-field in Rei's direction. If Unit-01 hadn't had [[ChestBlaster chest]] [[GatlingGood vulcans]], Shamshel would've won right then and there.]]

** Ramiel: [[spoiler:since it couldn't shoot and use an AT-field at the same time, it launched several attack drones to do offense while he shifted to defense]]. Justified in that it was being remote-controlled by Bardiel.

* TheChessmaster - The G-Man is evidently up to something: he's constantly watching Kaworu and it's revealed that [[spoiler:he sent the winged Eva against Israfel]]



** Also [[spoiler:the winged Evangelion killing all of Israfel's familiars with a single attack, cutting off the Angel's wings then finishing up with a NonLethalKO on Israfel]].



** Gaghiel: [[spoiler:you're an aquatic creature and is fighting against a flying opponent who can simply go higher if you try to catch her? No problem, you've got a BreathWeapon for that]].
** Israfel: [[spoiler:although he can split in two, he brought a [[ZergRush few thousand]] StarfishAlien {{familiar}}s with him as CannonFodder]].



** The latest chapter has [[spoiler:Yui showing Shephard the local equivalent of the Evangelion graveyard: a large chamber with the failed Eva prototypes hanging from the walls in body bags, some of them [[BodyHorror visibly deformed]]. Four of Unit-00's direct predecessors are also mentioned as still alive, although being too malformed to be useful as Evangelions. Three of them were turned into {{Wetware CPU}}s while the fourth one is [[AndIMustScream stored in indefinite cryostasis despite having a fully functional AI]].]]



* [[FrickinLaserBeams Frickin' Particle Beams]] - Upon realizing conventional bullets don't have enough kinetic force to penetrate AT-fields, the AEL quickly equips their Evangelions with handheld Tau cannons. These ones ''do'' work... but not much better.



* KungFuSonicBoom - The result of two AT-fields colliding, powerful enough to knock down a HumongousMecha weighing several thousand tons from ''kilometers away''.



** Asuka delivers a ''devastating'' TheReasonYouSuckSpeech at Kaworu, using his LeeroyJenkins piloting behavior as material. He promptly goes into a HeroicBSOD.
* LaserBlade - [[spoiler:The winged Evangelion uses one against Israfel, to devastating effect]]



** On the other hand, he already came very close to death by aneurysm - ''and this was only his first battle''.

** E-type equipment: [[InvisibilityCloak active camouflage]] for sneaking about. As much as something of that size can sneak, that is.



* TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay - The Confederacy uses the metric system. Shephard once uses US pints out of habit but an author's note includes the equivalent in liters.



* MookHorrorShow - Rei exterminates the entire crew of a truck convoy to get their cargo, taking advantage of the night and the thick fog to play DeadlyGuest with them.



** F-type equipment is focused on heavy fire support with no less than '''''48''''' barrels of autocannon, missile and railgun pointed at the target. When Rei opens up with it against [[spoiler:Israfel's familiars]], the results are [[LudicrousGibs quite spectacular]].
