** 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.

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.

* 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]].

* [[FrickinLaserBeams Frickin' Particle Beams]]: 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.



* GratuitousJapanese - Prior to the rewrite, the first season had plenty of this.



* HaveYouSeenMyGod - Invoked by Shephard and Yui: if there is a God, why didn't he prevent Second Impact?



* HomeworldEvacuation - Invoked. Millions of humans were relocated to self-sustaining colonies in other star systems so that another Combine attack cannot find and kill them ''all''.

* MagneticWeapons - Several. Basically, if there's a large single-shot cannon that's not mounted into a multi-barreled configuration, chances are it's a railgun. Ships have spinal-mounted versions while in Chapter 26, Rei uses an oversized Rheinmetall 250mm [=SrK=] L/75 ''Donnerlanze'' [[RuleOfCool bolt-action]] sniper railgun (with some GunPorn).

* MorphWeapon - The Spear of Longinus.



* ObligatorySwearing - ''Averted'' in an attempt to stay realistic. Touji is the only person who [[ClusterFBomb swears a lot]] (much to Hikari's annoyance) with Kaworu adding a PrecisionFStrike ([[BilingualBonus in German]]) here and there. Yui in particular is quick to reprimand the swearer - as is Hikari.

* TranslationConvention - ''Averted.'' Non-English dialogue is deliberately left unsubtitled - and in the case of Japanese, non-romanized. The latter part is excused with Kaworu not knowing Japanese himself.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6313201/1 Strategic Cyborg Evangelion]]'' is a RealRobotGenre crossover between Evangelion and VideoGame/HalfLife. It's 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 empire... 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.
