''[[http://www.evangelion.co.jp/petit_eva/ Petit Eva: Evangelion@School]]'' is yet another adaptation of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. This time, it's a Super Deformed comedic parody which has most of the principal cast (including Unit 01 and three Reis at once) in silly hijinks around the high school. It features no spoken (intelligible) dialogue, and rather than using traditional animation, it is done in complete 3-D CGI.

There are also assorted {{Yonkoma}} comics (including a 3 volume manga series) and a LicensedGame for the NintendoDS in the same setting. The DS game is notable [[EarlyBirdCameo for its inclusion of]] ''RebuildOfEvangelion'''s Mari; it was actually the first source to reveal her first name.

Compare SDGundamForce, which also has a parodic take on its similarly moody, cerebral franchise.

----
!! "Petit Eva" contains examples of the following tropes:
* AccidentalPervert: Shinji '''AND''' Unit-01, after accidentally digging a hole under Asuka's skirt.
* AllCGICartoon
* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: [[ItMakesSenseInContext Donít eat batteries, kids.]]
* ArtEvolution: The characters become more chunky and stiffer looking after the first nine episodes.
* ArtShift[=/=]MediumBlending: Any and all uses of 2D animation in this series.
* BedsheetGhost: How Kaworu disguises himself.
* BlackComedy: In episode 19, despite the humorous action going on setting an entirely different mood, the text Misato is writing on the blackboard is about the history of Nerv. As anyone whoís watched the original series can tell you, ''it was not pretty''. It is described by Misato thus:
-->2015 A.D.
-->THE TALE OF NERV
-->A long time ago, there was a big explosion. Seele, the secret society that knew this, selected Gendou. ĎThatís real sad, but isnít that the Second Impact?í [...] who asked this [...]
* TheBully: How the Angels are represented.
* ButtMonkey: Shinji...again.
* CheerfulChild: Rei 3...except when she doesn't get her cake.
* ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive: Gendou, naturally. ''[[AdaptationPersonalityChange And it is freaking adorable.]]''
* DirtyOldMan: Gendou
* DodgeTheBullet: Parodied when Misato throws pieces of chalk at Shinji for sleeping, and his involuntary movements cause him to dodge them all, even when fired from a Gatling gun.
* DuckSeasonRabbitSeason: Gendou employs this in one short to get Shinji, Asuka, and Unit-01 to stay on task cleaning the floor. [[spoiler:This is actually accidental; Gendou just keeps failing to muster up the courage to give Rei a bouquet of flowers for her birthday over and over, opening and closing the classroom door over and over in gradually shorter and shorter intervals, until Shinji, Asuka, and Unit-01 finally get confused and play baseball when heís looking and clean up when he isnít.]]
* GenderFlip: While technically Eva-01 was an AmbiguousRobot and therefore had no gender, it was inhabited by [[spoiler:Yui's soul]]. In this version, Eva-01 is portrayed as being male. Also, Keel is apparently now female.
* GenkiGirl: Rei 2.
* GiantEyeOfDoom: Creepily plastered everywhere, including on top of Tokyo-3's school.
* LighterAndSofter: It's a super-deformed ''EVA'', what do you expect?
* MoeAnthropomorphism: Eva-00, Eva-02, AND Jet Alone get this.
** Even the Mass-Produced [=EVAs=] are adorable!
* MindScrew: Some of the episodes make NO LOGICAL SENSE AT ALL. Granted, it was made by Gainax, but still... some YouTube comments indicate that the plots are even more incomprehensible than Instrumentality.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Eva-01's [[spoiler:super boogers.]]
* MythologyGag: Shinji and Asuka defeating Israfel with perfectly synchronized moves is similar to how they did it in the original ''Evangelion''.
* NoseNuggets: Eva-01 accidentally shoots a booger into Sachiel's face, setting of a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* PerspectiveFlip: Episodes 22 to 24 are this for episodes 18, 19, and 21 respectively.
* PervertRevengeMode: [[spoiler:Gendou]] and [[spoiler:Kensuke]] get this from [[spoiler:Misato]] for [[spoiler:ogling Asuka and Rei]].
* RunningGag: Quite a few:
** Defeated Angels becoming toys for Rei 3.
** A random bird pooping mid-flight.
** Misato throwing chalk at students that aren't paying attention.
** Apparently, [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth Eva-01's greatest fear]] is any character's facial features individually spun around like WheelOfFortune and having them burst into the room with a ZombieGait.
* SigilSpam: On everything, including toast.
* SurrealHumor
* ToiletHumor: Minor example. Shinji is shown to have had some trouble, erm, letting out [[ItMakesSenseInContext the batteries he had to swallow]].
* TwinSwitch: Rei 2 decides to do this when Rei 1 falls sick. Of course, with their personalities being polar opposites, everyone in school is VERY confused.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Mouthless pink bears in bakeries? Gigantic hairless one-eyed lumps? Who cares?
* TheVoiceless: Everyone, since there is no dialogue.
** TheUnintelligible: Happens whenever they do speak.
