There's at least one of these per chapter. Highlights include Unit 01 getting consecrated as a Titan, or the debut of Apocalypse Rei, Orky Superhero ("Waaagh."). The author gets a meta CMOA award for what he's done with Shinji.
- "Answer me this, then...where is the Shinji Ikari AS THE ANGELS SEE HIM?!" One moment, one phrase, manages to encapsulate everything that makes this Shinji so much more Bad Ass then the original model. How the Angels actually see him, as a being of pure murder able to project raw hate, fear, and pain as a weapon, and basically made of Nightmare Fuel, is just icing on the cake.
- Followed up by 'corporeal' versions of the Warboss, Space Marine, and Chaos Marine fighting a horde of said monsters.
- Wilfred single-handedly taking down a mechanical dinosaur.
- When we find out why the Javaal elder is called "The Sunshine Kid".
- First chapter, when Shinji's Uncle cussed out Gendo when he realized that the men he sent, Agent Jiro and Agent Keitaro were bugged.
"He's a kid, that's about it. Ask around. Ask him. Gendo threw him here to keep him out of the way, and if that's the furthest he can show about his concern then he can just go fuck himself."
"Please!" said Jiro suddenly. "Not to our faces!"
Crap. 'You're both wired, aren't you?' he mouthed. They nodded.
"Gendo? You're an asshole!" Shinji's uncle shouted at them, his words in no way mistakable to their recorders. "And I thank the gods in heaven that your son is absolutely NOTHING like you!" Then looking up to their faces. "That's it. Now get out."
That seemed to satisfy them somehow. "We'll be in touch."
From chapter 31, the introduction of Shinji's Terminators and their Litany.
