* MagnumOpus: It goes without saying that ''Neon Genesis Evangelion'' is [[Creator/HideakiAnno Hideaki Anno]]'s greatest and most influential work, the [[BrokenBase Broken Base]]'s disagreements notwithstanding.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K05gPSrsE-c Decisive Battle]]" track has quite a few similarities with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLpciaZzONY "007"]] used in ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove''.

* MemeticLoser: Shinji was meant to be a {{deconstruct|edTrope}}ion of a typical anime action hero, a guy who really wasn't cut out for fighting horrifying monsters and who suffered extreme emotional problems because of it. He also lacks a backbone when dealing with the other characters, and almost never stands up for himself. Some viewers expected he would come onto his own like Simon above, but the angst fest the series became means he only got more and more screwed up. It's a topic of heavy debate whether he was an effective examination of his character type, or if he was just too whiny [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic to be sympathetic]]. Pretty much every spin off (including the manga and ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movies) writes Shinji to be more confident, which makes it seem like it wasn't just the casual viewers who had a problem with his portrayal. Heck, even his [[Creator/SpikeSpencer English VA]] got annoyed with him for it. [[note]]"I musn't run away, I musn't run away". Let's analyze this, where the fuck would I ''go''?[[/note]]

** Rei's voice actresses all invoke this. Her Japanese VA, Music/MegumiHayashibara, is famous for her roles as [[TheSlayers 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]].

Formatting mistakes.
** ''Evangelion'' and ''Anime/Rahxephon'' fans are rather contentious towards each other given how much ''Rahpxephon'' borrows from ''Eva''. This of course is rather ironic given how their respective directors are good friends who worked on many projects together.

** Shinji has quite a few stereotypical moe characteristics, to the point that if he was a girl ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen as was originally planned]]), he probably would've been considered one of the very first moe characters.

** As noted above in DoubleStandard, Shinji has always flanderized by the general fandom into a wangsty coward who would faint or break into tears if he so much as get a paper cut. In the actual series, while still defined mostly by his emotional depression, Shinji actually doesn't whine as much as other characters like Asuka.

* AmericansHateTingle: Shinji is a far more polarizing character in the West than he is in Japan.
