** Yuki shares a number of character traits with Shinji, especially in the beginning. Both are timid and lonely but unable to connect with the people around them even if they really want to and forced to fight even though they really don't want to. Both seem to want their father back in their lives, but both end up betrayed. The main difference seems to be that Yuki has his mother and Yuno, the latter being something of a mixed blessing.

* GainaxEnding: The manga epilogue most certainly counts. [[spoiler:1st-world Yuno commits suicide because she can't hurt Yuki. This leaves Yuki as God of the 2nd-world, only he's so depressed about it he doesn't do anything and lives in a vacuum for 10,000 with only Mur Mur for company. Then Yuno breaks the walls of time and space with a hammer. It turns out third world Yuno inherited 1st-world Yuno's memories. Then, 3rd-world Deus invites the two to become his successor -- presumably this is because they've both already won the game once each. Both get a Happy End from this.]]
