* The Angels are defended by Absolute Terror fields. What is their salute in the Bible, where they're not hostile? ''Fears not''.

* The battle between Eva 02 and the Mass Produced Evas might be a nod to the classic [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam anime that kick-started]] [[RealRobot a whole new genre of robots]] on two levels. One is the coloring of the respective mechs. Red and White are associated with Char and Amuro respectively. Although the sides are wrong, Asuka's personality and desires of being the Ace qualify her for the spot of being the closest thing to Char. The second level is that it's a reverse of what'd usually happen in a war. Instead of [[ConservationOfNinjutsu one lone mecha taking out hordes and hordes of enemy mechs]] like in Gundam, it instead shows [[RealityEnsues the reality of taking on a squadron of]] [[MechaMooks literal mindless metallic foot soldiers]].

**On top of that, Asuka is essentially piloting a buggy, flawed robot with outdated tech. The Mass Produced Evangelions are all shiny and new, with upgrades she couldn't even have dreamed of. All the combat experience in the world wouldn't get around that.

*** A lot of people hate hearing recorded playback of their own voice. It wouldn't sound strange to us as the audience, but imagine you're hearing multiple recordings of your voice playing at once. That would be utterly ''maddening''.

* Remember that cute dog that was on an off-screen TV giving one-bark answers to mathematical problems that equal [[{{Stealth Pun}} "wan"]]? Well, let's hope that dog and all other beings with a degree of sentience are [[spoiler:affected by the global anti-AT field in the same way humans are, else they'll likely either be trapped with no way of feeding themselves, die from the destruction, or die slowly from long-term starvation!]]

* Many, many fans wonder why ''Yui'' would bring Shinji, a four-year-old, into the lab with her when she was going to perform the ill-fated Contact Experiment. Well. Gendo's response was to abandon the boy at the [=NERV=] train station, ''and that's with witnesses around.'' Fuyutsuky had to take Shinji to meet "Sensei." What do you suppose would have happened to the boy if Gendo came home from [=NERV=] after Yui "died" and found Shinji, deciding that he wanted nothing to do with the boy, or anything that reminded him of his wife, like pictures of her, which he openly admits destroying? Perhaps Yui knew that and wanted witnesses around for precisely that reason?

** Unfortuantely, the English dub completely ruined this scene by only using Asuka's VA for this scene. So instead of Asuka being assaulted by imitations of herself, it's just her repeating the same few lines over and over and breaking down because... she doesn't like the sound of her own voice?

* During the sequence where Arael conjures multiple Asukas while probing Asuka's memories, each Asuka is voiced by a different actress, to show that what Arael's conjurations are saying are both bizarre and unsettlingly wrong. What brings this into fridge brilliance is that each successive voice actress is actually trying to imitate Asuka's VA's style of speech, almost as if Arael is trying to make his conjurations as close to the real thing as he can.
