* A rather popular fan theory is that Ritsuko had unrequited feelings for Misato in college.

* Kensuke genuinely enjoys spending time with Shinji and in an early episode he offers Shinji emotional support when both are sitting around a campfire and gives him his jacket to wear because its cold out.

** In ''End of Evangelion'', compared to Shinji's Kaworu, the figure who Maya sees is Ritsuko who types "I need you" on Maya’s laptop with her hands over Maya’s, and then tenderly embraces her, with her knee planted in Maya's groin. Before she's turned into LCL Maya joyfully returns Ritsuko's hug and cries "Sempai! Sempai! Sempai! Sempai!" with a look of ecstasy on her face as tears flow from her eyes.

** They have a lot of HoYay in ''Manga/NeonGenesisEvangelionCampusApocalypse'' and ''IkariShinjiRaisingProject'' too.

* ''IkariShinjiRaisingProject'' does this with Asuka/Rei on illustrations and in Shinji's dreams and even in real-life as they become more friendly toward each other late in the series, Maya/Ritsuko, Rei/Misato because Rei obsesses about boobs and can't help touching them, and also Ritsuko/Yui and the terrifying Rei/Yui because Yui has the largest breasts of the whole cast. Also, there is much Shinji/Kaworu to be had and Asuka once jokes about Touji and Shinji having an intimate relationship. And of the more NoYay variety, Gendo simply loves his son Shinji so dearly he wants to bear-hug him from behind or take a bath with him. Look hard and you can probably see some Mana/Asuka too.

** In ''NeonGenesisEvangelionGakuenDatenroku'', there's a very LesYay scene between Asuka (playing the Virgin Mary) and Rei (playing Gabriel) during the Nativity Play. Quite frankly, it's impossible to miss. Either that or Asuka and Rei were sneakily insinuating that Jesus is Mary and Gabriel's lovechild.

* Shinji and Kaworu. The blushing, the showering together, the hand-holding, the sleepover, and the declaration of love, all in one episode.

to:

[[folder:
Shinji and Kaworu. Kaworu]]
*
The blushing, the showering together, the hand-holding, the sleepover, and the declaration of love, all in one episode.



** In the movie Death and Rebirth, Kaworu is brought up as a prominent link between the TV series and End of Evangelion. The [[spoiler:death scene at the end echos the first scene of End of Evangelion, showing the sheer impact Kaworu's death had on Shinji.]]
** And finally, in EOE, Shinji meets Giant-Naked Rei and has a screaming fit of insanity (to be fair, [[NightmareFuel so did many fans]]) but a second later, she transforms into Giant Naked Kaworu and asks, "Is this better?" Shinji ''smiles'' for the first time since meeting Kaworu. Yep.
*** During Instrumentality, after Shinji parts from [[FanNickname "Reililth"]], Kaworu appears to him as the representative of the word "love" in Shinji's heart, and is the final proof he needs to reject instrumentality entirety.
** In the manga, meanwhile, the Ho Yay is much more sexualized but one-sided, with Kaworu as the aggressor. Shinji outright tells [[FanNickname "Evil Manga Kaworu"]] he doesn't even ''like'' him, and rebuffs anything resembling an advance he makes. That still doesn't stop him from kissing a feverish, hyperventilating Shinji in bed--covering it up as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation--then rather aggressively interrogating him on the nature of love. Throughout their scenes together, Shinji is unnerved by Kaworu's "weird" behavior, but acts as a classic tsundere archetype. Only later after [[spoiler:killing Kaworu at his request]] does Shinji admit he was attracted to Kaworu in a conversation with Misato.
*** Shinji was Tsundere and didn't want to fall in love with him, but did. That's the entire point of their interaction. Sadamoto admitted he was the only of the children who had romantic interaction with Shinji. Asuka and Rei were meant to be platonic from Shinji's side.
** In the ''Campus Apocalypse'' manga, Kaworu says that he's only helping NERV for Shinji's sake and that otherwise he'd be out there enjoying life [[spoiler:until all reality fell apart without him as a CosmicKeystone.]] [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe Because Shinji was nice to him]], true, but...
*** ''Campus Apocalypse'' Kaworu falls in love with Shinji because [[spoiler:they met as children and Shinji patted Kaworu on the head. Kaworu sacrifices himself for Shinji in the end.]]
*** After Kaworu reveals to Shinji that he [[spoiler: is the final angel]] he expects Shinji to reject him... only for Shinji to say that he doesn't care. Kaworu turns his head away and bursts into tears of joy.
** The Shinji/Kaworu HoYay is pretty much confirmed by some of the official artwork available through Gainax's Eva merchandise site.
*** He gets called Shinji's Orihime in the Evangelion Orchestra Event. It's not only official, but it's the official True Love.
** In ''Rebuild 1.0'', Kaworu awakens shirtless on the moon to promptly say "I'm looking forward to knowing you, Shinji Ikari." As lampshaded with many lulz by the fansubbing group, the Japanese word used can mean "to know in the biblical sense."

** TheOtherWiki has placed Shinji into the "Fictional bisexuals" category. While this proves little, it does say a lot.
** Several games, Kaworu's offered as a romantic choice for Shinji, including the ones he is not a main character (like Secret of Evangelion: Kaworu and Shinji are a BetaCouple to the player's main character and their pairing of choice). In particular the official game, Neon Genesis Evangelion 2, has the official stats for Kaworu's and Shinji's affection as ''high'' starter in romantic and ''low'' in friendship. While the user can hack and change the parameters, the guide published the official ones, and clarifies they are meant to be perceived as an item (UnfortunateImplications of how this isn't gay because Kaworu's not human, aside), they with the other couples (Misato/Kaji) share a love confession that is related to an event of a good end rather than a generic-love confession recorded for light hearted scenarios that work for everyone.
** In the 4koma gag comic strip (not confused with the anime adaptation), Puchi Eva or Petit Eva, Kaworu's blatantly in love with Shinji (he desires to be his wife in his profile and calls Gendo his father in law). There are a number of teases in several strips, including one with Kaworu moving in with his family (the angels) to live with the Ikaris. Yui's supportive of their relationship and teases Shinji about it. For a online Valentine's Day Special campaign in a mobile phone, Shinji and Kaworu were draw sharing the RedStringOfFate tied to their pinky, both bashful with a multiple heart patterned background.

** In 3.0 Kaworu and Shinji both play the piano under a heart shaped tree, with Shinji learning how to play the piano instantly with some help from Kaworu. Later on he blushes when Kaworu tells Shinji he can just call him by his first name.
** ''Rebuild's'' theme songs ''Beautiful World'' and ''Sakura Nagashi'' are both very much to do with Kaworu and Shinji's relationship.
*** ''Beautiful World'' is rather blatantly about Shinji from Kaworu's perspective, as supported by the male pronoun "boku", and distinctly similar speech patterns. And as for the content... hoo, boy. Who else would profess so selflessly that their only wish is to sleep by Shinji's side? Who sleeps with him in both the original and the films? The singer doesn't care where it is, as "anywhere would do", and in 3.0, Kaworu and Shinji watch the stars together - lying on the cold hard ground. Yet again, the singer's single-minded fixation on Shinji is typical of Kaworu ("I don't need newspapers; they don't have anything important in them/but how are you doing?/if you're alright, then that's good") and also that selfless curiosity and general love of humanity cannot be attributed to anyone other than him - who else would call the world "beautiful"?
*** ''Sakura Nagashi'' is a song about coping with grief, and mourning for a lover deceased. Guess who dies in that film... If the song is read in that light, then the lyrics are very revealing of Shinji's feelings towards Kaworu. ("...You were so beautiful. What would you think of me, living without you?") ("I can't believe we'll never meet again/I haven't told you anything yet.")

* There's also some LesYay[=/=]FoeYay played with in regards to Asuka and Rei in the official art. Their interactions in "The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still" actually bordered on a bizarre case of BelligerentSexualTension, especially since they made temporary peace with each other in the end. They grow to be on better terms in ''RebuildOfEvangelion'', though.
** In ''RebuildOfEvangelion'', Asuka later volunteers to pilot Unit 03 so that Rei can bring Shinji and his father closer together. She does this for ''Rei'', who in most incarnations she doesn't care for at all.
