* [[DespairEventHorizon "Nobody needs me, so they can all just die"]]. Keep in mind that it's a 14 YEAR OLD is saying that.

* Episodes 25 and 26 as a whole. Shinji, Rei, Asuka, and Misato having emotional breakdowns over their percieved flaws is absolutely heartwrenching to watch.

** Depending on how you see it, it's either a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for [[spoiler:Kaworu]], who [[spoiler:''willingly [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] himself to save humanity'']], his version of MindRape on Shinji, or [[TropesAreTools maybe even]] [[GoldenMeanFallacy both]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Knowing what the chorus in Symphony 9 means, and considering what happens at the end of the episode, a certain snippet from the piece becomes really horrific:
->Whoever has been lucky enough\\
> to become a friend to a friend,\\
Whoever has found a beloved wife,\\
>let him join our songs of praise!\\
Yes, and anyone who can call one soul\\
>his own on this earth!\\
Any who cannot, let them slink away\\
>from this gathering in tears!\\

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2h8hXPRt_E The sad, minimalistic piano piece]] playing during this scene just nails it home. If you don't tear up at this scene, you officially have no soul.

* Hell, damn near '''anything''' with poor Shinji that isn't a relentless {{Narm}}.
** That damn image of a little Shinji crying with bags full of his clothes around him. His dad just disowned him and left him with his aunt and uncle while Shinji begs him not to go. Just... he really needs a hug and his father needs a brutal NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and a ReasonYouSuckSpeech.
