* Kaworu Nagisa, who only appears in episode 24 of the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' TV series, is seen in the first movie of the new ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' tetralogy. This may have something to do with him being an EnsembleDarkHorse, though. He also shows up quite a bit earlier in the manga adaptation, and in pretty much every AlternateContinuity. Notably, however, he's much more [[GreyAndGrayMorality morally ambiguous]] in the manga.
