Added DiffLines:

** Further reinforced later on by Shephard, who confirms that crewed courier ships are the most boring post a soldier can possibly get.


Added DiffLines:

** Ramiel vs. Evas, as usual. The author even confirmed that the only reason why the Evas stood a chance in the first place is because Ramiel [[ConservationOfNinjutsu downgraded their threat level when they failed to meaningfully hurt it]] and wasn't seriously trying until it was too late.


Added DiffLines:

** Asuka's moment came in chapter 32 when she not only held a proper conversation with Kaworu whom she had been constantly berating and talking down to so far, but picked holes in his ideology ''and'' expressed approval when he admitted being wrong - all while she was hungover, yet without raising her voice even once, demonstrating considerable maturity over her canon counterpart.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Yakuza}} - After Rei mentioning early on that Tokyo-2 is the local criminal underworld hub, she and Kaworu acquire money from a yakuza-affiliated loan shark in chapter 34.

''[[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.

** Shamshel also loses it when she realizes the Spear of Longinus is within arm's reach of her opponent, but it only really kicks into gear once she finds herself on the receiving end of the Spear's full firepower.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
