Most people assume that Mayumi Yamagishi is just a timid little bookworm. Most people think she's just a quiet young heiress living off her late parents' huge fortune. Most people are wrong. Very wrong.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5087216/1/Superwomen-of-Eva-2-Dark-Lady-of-Tokyo3 Superwomen of Eva 2: Dark Lady of Tokyo-3]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1615106/Mike313 Mike313]] is a ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' story in which a relatively obscure ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' character named [[CanonForeigner Mayumi Yamagishi]] from the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn game ''[[http://wiki.evageeks.org/Neon_Genesis_Evangelion:_Second_Impression Second Impression]]'' takes on the role of ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} in order to find the truth behind [[DeathByOriginStory the death of her parents]]. The story focuses less on the big monster battles and more on the subterfuge surrounding Nerv and building the Bat-mythos in the [=NGE=] world.

!!Tropes:

* ApocalypseCult: The Light of the Divine makes an appearance here as well.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Kyodai Ken.
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: The Tokyo-3 described in the fic doesn't just contradict what's shown in the show, but is physically impossible to build in the Hakone region where Tokyo-3 is located. [[RuleOfCool Still makes for a pretty interesting]] [[CityOfAdventure place to read about]].
* AscendedExtra: As mentioned before, Mayumi has only appeared in an [[CanonForeigner extra-canonical]] ''Evangelion'' [[ExpandedUniverse video game]] so far.
* BatmanGambit: More long term than most, but Mayumi's plan to bring down Tokyo-3's organized crime hinges on them trying to run a [[ShameIfSomethingHappened protection racket]] on her. Interestingly, while falling into her BatmanGambit, Penguin tries his own when he [[spoiler:{{blackmail}}s a mostly InnocentBystander into taking Toji's sister [[HostageSituation hostage]] at a product demonstration Mayumi is hosting. [[SpannerInTheWorks It doesn't go as planned]].]]
* BatSignal: [[TheCommissionerGordon Jun Godo]] makes one to get in touch with Batgirl.
* BecomingTheMask: The fact that Mayumi feels more comfortable in the cape and cowl is a given. That she would end up falling for Shinji for real after leading him on for long is also a given, but happens during the fic proper
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: In addition to her UtilityBelt, Batgirl wears a suit of PoweredArmor that is ImmuneToBullets, grants SuperStrength, and has built-in NightVisionGoggles and an InvisibilityCloak.
* CombatPragmatist: Kyodai Ken will bring a [[KatanasAreJustBetter sword]] to a [[NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight martial arts fight]]. To be fair, Batgirl brought an InvisibilityCloak, [[SmokeOut smoke bombs]], and a [[StunGuns taser]] to the same fight. Then again, Kyodai Ken then proceeds to [[spoiler:bring [[StuffBlowingUp bombs]] to later fights.]]
* TheCommissionerGordon: Lieutenant [[AdaptationNameChange Jun Godo]] is quite obviously an {{Expy}} of Jim Gordon given a RaceLift to fit the setting.
* CompositeCharacter: Batgirl is a composite of [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Terry McGinnis]], several DC {{ComicBook/Batgirl}}s, [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Batman himself]], and of course, Mayumi Yamagishi.
* CoolBike: The Bat-Cycle. The narration mentions Mayumi having a [[CoolCar Bat-Mobile]] early on, but she was not able to bring it with her to Tokyo-3...
* CreateYourOwnVillain: [[spoiler:Batgirl knocks Gendo into a vat of Eva coolant, and when he emerges, he can't survive outside sub-zero temperatures, effectively turning him into this fic's Mr. Freeze]].
* {{Determinator}}: Who do you think?
* DirtyCop: Like Gotham early in Franchise/{{Batman}}'s career, this version of Tokyo-3 is full of them.
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: As expected, the Batcave. Technically, Nerv headquarters counts too.
* GunshipRescue: Courtesy of [[spoiler:[[CoolPlane The Bat]].]]
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The [[spoiler:Light of the Divine]] seems to recruit graduates from there. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], given that they likely lack any professional training and are trying to shoot from one moving vehicle to another.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: ''Shinji'', of all people, demonstrates this.
* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: In Japan, perhaps the only nation in the world where gun control is successfully enforced (except for the {{Yakuza}}), in Tokyo-3, where [[spoiler:the Yakuza is run by Nerv]], the [[spoiler:[[ApocalypseCult Light of the Divine]] who would have no friends among Nerv (who, as mentioned, run the Yakuza)]] somehow manages to get several firearms and the ammunition to use them. For that matter, illegal firearms seem to be a ''lot'' more common in general than one would expect in Japan.
* LegitimateBusinessmensSocialClub: This story's incarnation of the Iceberg Lounge.
* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: A heroic version. For several chapters, Mayumi wishes to enter Nerv HQ to find what information Gendo has on her parents' assassination, but [[ImpossibleMission it's easier said than done]]. The BigBlackout that occurs during [[GiantSpider Matarael's]] attack provides her with a golden opportunity to try to sneak in. [[spoiler: Too bad she's too busy saving Shinji to take advantage of it. When the MAGI are under attack by [[ComputerVirus Ireul]], however, she takes full advantage.]]
* LetsYouAndHimFight: While [[TheMenInBlack Section Two]] are hardly heroes in the ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' stories, [[PoorCommunicationKills miscommunication]] results in them trying to kill Batgirl under circumstances where they should be [[EnemyMine working together against]] [[spoiler:[[ApocalypseCult the Light of the Divine]]]].
* ManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:[[MagnificentBastard Gendo]] [[ManipulativeBastard Ikari]].]] ''[[UpToEleven For the entire Tokyo-3 organized crime underground]]''.
* MegaCorp: Yamagishi Enterprises. Providers of everything from regular cell phones to ArtificialLimbs to spare parts for Evangelion technology to everything a SuperHero needs to wage a war against crime.
* AMinorKidroduction: The story starts with [[DeathByOriginStory the murder of Mayumi's parents]] [[HarmfulToMinors in front of her]]. It's her [[DrivingQuestion wanting to know who did it and who ordered it]] that drives her on.
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Kyodai Ken]] proves this to Batgirl repeatedly, both in flashback and in the present time. As she is still a [[BadassAdorable fourteen year old girl]], this is [[WeakButSkilled not due to any lack of skill on her part]]. That they're both {{Combat Pragmatist}}s (see above) doesn't help.
* ProfessionalKiller: [[spoiler:Gendo]] hires [[spoiler:[[GratuitousNinja Kyodai Ken]]]] to dispose of Batgirl. When that fails, he hires [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}} Bane]].]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: [[spoiler:Kyodai Ken]] threatens the destruction of Tokyo-3 ''while he's still in it'' in order to engineer a final confrontation with Batgirl. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when [[BatmanGambit Batgirl calls]] his [[BrandishmentBluff bluff]].]]
* SecretKeeper: Motomu, Mayumi's Alfred {{Expy}}.
* SerialKiller: Batgirl has a brief encounter with one.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: The Penguin tries this and ends up falling into Mayumi's BatmanGambit (see above).
* ShoutOut:
** By WordOfGod, the whole sequence of Mayumi sneaking in (and fighting her way out) of Nerv is an extended homage to the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' (specifically the [[MookHorrorShow "Predator Challenge"]] rooms).
** Batgirl's costume broadly resembles the outfit of the [[{{ComicBook/Batgirl2000}} Cassandra Cain]] Batgirl (with full face cover, because of Mayumi having a mole on her face which could blow her identity wide open), with most of the abilities of the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' [[PoweredArmor Batsuit]] and additional gear straight out of the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' (like [[EverythingSensor "Detective Vision"]]).
** The entire [[TheRival Kyo]][[ArrogantKungFuGuy dai]] [[GratuitousNinja Ken]] arc is a shout out to the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episodes "Night Of The Ninja" and "Day Of The Samurai".
* ShroudedInMyth: Unlike the other ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' stories, this one starts with Mayumi having already been operating as Batgirl for some time... [[TheDreaded and her reputation precedes her]].
* StealthHiBye: It just wouldn't be a Franchise/{{Batman}} story without it.
* WhamEpisode: Bane's arrival.
* WretchedHive: Tokyo-3, with the old city of Hakone standing in as TheCityNarrows.
* {{Yakuza}}: They run Tokyo-3's criminal underworld. [[spoiler:[[ManBehindTheMan And Gendo runs them.]]]]
