* The ending to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is [[GainaxEnding so weird that you might not get it at first]]. But when you do... [[spoiler: AssimilationPlot was originally called {{Instrumentality}}.]]

* Many of {{the trio}}s formed ([[EverybodyWentToSchoolTogether school-related]] or not) have their members reach the same fate by the end of the movie. [[spoiler:The university trio (Misato, Ritsuko and Kaji) are shot dead, the BridgeBunny trio (Maya, Makoto and Shigeru) are met by the people they admire (except for Shigeru) through Instrumentality, and the Children's friends' trio (Hikari, Kensuke and Toji) have disappeared off-screen by the time the TV series has come to a close (in this instance, episodes 25 and 26 wouldn't count, due the MindScrew[=/=]GainaxEnding[=/=]AlternateEnding nature of the TV finale). The Children (Asuka, Rei and Shinji) are an exception, although the girls' penultimate scenes involve the nature of the show (the Evangelions and the Angels).]]

** Episode 22: Asuka is pissed at Rei, but doesn't [[ArmorPiercingSlap snap]] until Rei states that [[ExtremeDoormat she would kill herself if commanded to.]] [[spoiler: Well, that's pretty much what Kyoko did...]]
** [[spoiler: If we accept that young Shinji inside Leliel is a representation of Leliel itself, then the last shot we see after Yui inside Unit-01 'saves' Shinji is of Leliel]] ''[[spoiler: [[FaceDeathWithDignity holding out its core to Shinji.]]]]''

Added DiffLines:

* While she may or may not have tried to speed the process by cutting her wrists and lying in a bathtub, Asuka was implied to have taken a more indirect route by starving herself. She's found naked with her clothes folded neatly (a hallmark of people committing suicide) and is too weak to avoid being taken into custody when Section 2 agents find her.
** One early draft of episode 24 would've shown Kaworu with scars on his wrists and neck, with the implications that they were from suicide attempts. This was apparently cut in the final draft, but it does help explain why Kaworu was so willing to have Shinji kill him.
** In an early scene of End Of Evangelion Shinji is shown with HiddenEyes and is soaking wet, implying he tried to commit suicide by drowning.

* The End Of Evangelion has a rather unsettling variation on the SexInViolence trope involving the MP Evas. note For those who really want to know, they stab themselves with copies of the Lance of Longinus in their most vital organ (their S2 engines) under the influence of Rei/Lilith while climaxing. This is foreshadowed in the beginning with Fuyutsuki's comment that SEELE's attempt to hack the MAGI was "merely foreplay," before it becomes more Squick-inducingly obvious throughout the movie. The aforementioned Lance of Longinus has its repeated phallic symbolism. The subtext it adds to Asuka's death scene where she's speared in the face with it is particularly creepy, especially when you consider that most of the movie focuses on Shinji's desire for her.

** [[FanNickname Evil Manga Kaworu]] strangled a kitten. Sure, he (weakly) justified it as a MercyKill, and the manga continuity was technically an AlternateUniverse with DivergentCharacterEvolution anyway, but...

** It goes deeper when you consider that the person that Asuka "loves" in this scenario could very well be Shinji. On a basic level, it refers to Rei being Asuka's rival for Shinji's affections, but [[spoiler:considering what we learn about Rei and her relation to Gendo, it could also be seen as Asuka accusing Rei of stealing ''Gendo's'' affections away from his son, thereby causing Sinji to become the reclusive loner that he is. In other words, ''Asuka is blaming Rei for what Shinji has become, which inadvertently had brought her down as well due to the UnresolvedSexualTension between them .'']]
