* The sound of Asuka repeatedly saying "CHAAAAAAANCE."

* The ** "No! This isn't the real me!" becomes the MostAnnoyingSound after having to hear it for five times straight, as is the sound of Asuka repeatedly saying "CHAAAAAAANCE."

Added DiffLines:

** The Hallelujah chorus is the first thing that plays ''immediately'' when Arael's light beam makes contact with Eva-02, which is likely where the Narmy part comes from (along with thoughts of [[KillLaKill Mako Makanshou]] coming to mind), but given the look into Asuka's mind that follows, it's more accurate to say that the moment is turned from Narm to purified NightmareFuel.

* Fuyutsuki's DullSurprise often becomes funny. Memorable lines include: "Sweet Jesus, it's an Anti-AT Field." and "Oh dear God in Heaven, SEELE has delivered an angel to us." Exactly in the tone you'd expect DullSurprise to fall under.

* The English dub of ''End of Evangelion'' has Fuyutsuki's voice actor slipping into DullSurprise territory so often it becomes funny. Memorable lines include: "Sweet Jesus, it's an Anti-AT Field." and "Oh dear God in Heaven, SEELE has delivered an angel to us." Exactly in the tone you'd expect DullSurprise to fall under.

* Repeating of the same three bits of StockFootage in the Director's Cut ''over and over again'' ended up making it some sort of [[BlackComedy incredibly inappropriate]] OverlyLongGag. It made more sense in the original Japanese; there, each time that scene was repeated, a different voice actress from the cast who played another character ([[Music/MegumiHayashibara Rei]], [[Creator/KotonoMitsuishi Misato]], [[Creator/YurikoYamaguchi Ritsuko]], [[Creator/MikiNagasawa Maya]], and [[Creator/JunkoIwao Hikari]]) read [[Creator/YukoMiyamura Asuka]]'s lines, making her statement of "No! This isn't me!" more sensible. But in the dub, it's just [[Creator/TiffanyGrant Asuka's regular VA]]. Either this didn't occur to the dubbers, or, because the dub for the Director's Cut was made afterwards, too many voice actors were unavailable. ([[TheOtherMarty Gendo's lines were re-recorded with a different voice actor]] as it was.)

It is perhaps single-most jarring moment to a viewer who watched the anime from start to finish. As a result "Black Hyuga" has become a minor meme in the fandom.

* From the original series English dub:



** Generally speaking, while the ''Evangelion'' dub contains a number of truly outstanding performances and scenes, it also "balances" this by also having a greater-than-average number of Narmy hiccups. How greatly the positive aspects outweigh the negative tends to be a matter of personal preference, and is the main reason for the dub's LoveItOrHateIt status among Eva fans.
