** Anno revealed in October 2014 that he had plans to make an all-new Evangelion film after production of ''Death and Rebirth'' and ''End of Evangelion'' was completed. The proposed project was to take place in an AlternateContinuity and have a overall DarkerAndEdgier and even bleaker tone than the original series; like the story taking place after humanity becoming almost extinct with the few remaining survivors clinging to life in a LastBastion and the Evangelions having much more BodyHorror associated with them. The project was shelved indefinitely, however, as ''Death and Rebirth'' went over schedule, and ''End of Evangelion'' therefore had to be delayed, and the intended director of the project was reluctant towards it. Quite a few elements of the story, however, was later reused in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''.

* RealLifeRelative: In the Latin American Dub, both of Shinji's younger voices in flashbacks as been done by [[Creator/VictorUgarte Victor Ugarte's]] sisters. Gaby in the original series and Xóchitl in Revival...due to the former being TheOtherDarrin for [[IncestousCasting Rei Ayanami]] in Revival.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece:
** The JSSDF soldiers that raid NERV in ''End of Evangelion'' all carry H&K G11 rifles, which would have been considered futuristic... in 1997. The G11 program fell apart in 1990 and the rights repurposed by 2004 with only a few functioning rifles ever being built and is considered and abject and expensive failure instead of the future of military arms.
** Plus, the series is set in a fictional vision of 2015. Notice the lack of smartphones.

** Rei's voice actresses all invoke this. Her Japanese VA, Music/MegumiHayashibara, is famous for her roles as [[{{LightNovel/Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] and [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf the female Ranma]]. Her original English VA, Creator/AmandaWinnLee, is well-known for her roles as [[Anime/BurnUp Rio Kinezono]] and [[Anime/ReadOrDie Miss Deep]]. Finally, her English VA for the Rebuild series, Creator/BrinaPalencia, made her mark in anime as [[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Silvia de Alicia]] and [[Anime/RomeoXJuliet Juliet Capulet]].
** The Mexican Spanish dub pull this out, albeit in lesser degree: Victor Ugarte (Shinji's Mexican VA) was previously associated with voicing hotblooded kids like [[Manga/KishinDoujiZenki young Zenki]] or jerkasses like [[Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne Dilandau]], and after EVA, he's sometimes typecasted with voicing wimps like [[WesternAnimation/CampLazlo Raj]], [[Anime/{{Hamtaro}} Oxnard]] and others. Circe Luna (Rei's Mexican VA) is normallly typecasted with voicing [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]] or sweet girls like [[Anime/DragonBallGT Pan]] or [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]].

** Hyuga was originally not meant to have a crush on Misato. In fact, an off-hand remark in one of the early scripts for episode 24 would have implied that he was homosexual.

* Many of the characters were named after various WWII-era naval vessels; most of them were sunk rather than surviving the war. ''Katsuragi'', ''Akagi'', and ''Soryu'' were all aircraft carriers; ''Akagi'' and ''Soryu'' were part of the Pearl Harbor attack, and sunk at Midway. ''Katsuragi'' was completed so late it never actually operated aircraft, but survived the war and was scrapped. ''Ayanami'' ran troops to Guadalcanal, but was destroyed by the battleship ''USS Washington'' during the climatic naval battle of the campaign. ''Kirishima'' was a battlecruiser converted to a fast battleship, and it fell in the same engagement as the ''Ayanami'' as another victim of the ''USS Washington''; while ''Hyuga'' was converted into a battleship-carrier hybrid and survived into 1945 before carrier aircraft sank it in the Inland Sea. ''Ibuki'', ''Maya'' and ''Aoba'' are names of heavy cruisers; the ''Ibuki'' existed only on paper, it was never built. ''Maya'' made it until 1944 before being torpedoed and sunk by the submarine ''USS Dace'' in the opening round of Leyte Gulf, while ''Aoba'' lasted until 1945 only to suffer the same fate as ''Hyuga''. ''Langley'' is also the name of an American aircraft carrier which was sunk by the Japanese off Java (though it wasn't operating as a carrier at the time), and the ''Graf Zeppelin'' is the name of an uncompleted Nazi-German aircraft carrier which was sunk as a target by the Russian Navy after the war. Along the same theme, Ikari means "anchor."

** In ''End of Evangelion'' the live-action sequence was supposed to be much longer and more story driven, showing Shinji a more mundane alternate world, like in Episode 26, but with the further twist that [[ItsAWonderfulPlot he himself does not exist in that world]]. The sequence shows an older Asuka, Rei and Misato played by their voice actors going about their everyday lives (the sequence was included in the Japan-only ''Renewal'' release as an extra).
