[[caption-width-right:192:The ad that started the whole thing.]]

->''"It's all about the journey. And seeing if even the extra advantages given by 'SuperRobot Pills' can counter the '[[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]] Syndrome' inherent in [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]] as a whole. Plus, as you've gathered with all the tidbits tossed around [[spoiler: (a fourth MAGI consisting of a partially-pulverized Naoko Akagi, a Project Nephilim that apparently bred Angelically-enhanced humans for military clients, Rei having been in military service when she was chronologically less than seven years old, ZA GUNDAMS, ZA ANIMALS, AOBA'S A GIRL, Ibuki Twins, etc.)]], this world is a bit... different, from canon."''
-->-- '''[[WordOfGod The Author]]''', [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showpost.php?p=5492729&postcount=829 giving somewhat of an understatement]].

In a Post-Apocalyptic world, Shinji Ikari must battle horrifying monsters in a giant robot to prevent another disaster like that which almost wiped out humanity years before. ...If Doctor Akagi's mad [[ForSCIENCE science]] doesn't traumatize him first.

[[NonSequitur ...wait, what?]]

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6186041/1/Mobile_Fighter_Evangelion Mobile Fighter Evangelion]] reinvisions Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, the notorious {{Deconstruction}} of the SuperRobot genre, as one of the Super Robot shows it was deconstructing, based solely on the [[Tropers/UltraSonic007 author's]] memory of a print advertisement he saw as a kid.

And it. Is. '' '''AWESOME!!!''' '' It's up there with FanFic/NobodyDies as the cream of the {{Fix Fic}}s that [[DeconReconSwitch reconstruct Eva as the very thing '''it''' deconstructed]].

It really must be seen to be believed. Take note, however, that WordOfGod has stated that the very nature of Evangelion itself might be too much for the might of the SuperRobot...but where's the fun in spoiling?

Note that there be spoilers below!

[[WMG:Tropes used for SCIENCE!! in MFE...]]
* AdaptationPersonalityChange:
** Gendo is an ''awesome'' Dad for once, though as Episode 5 revealed, he's still quite the ManipulativeBastard.
** Ritsuko is...''passionate'' about SCIENCE, though she also seems to have GoneMadFromTheRevelation.
** [[TeamPet Pen-Pen]] is described as Special. Of course, [[MemeticBadass we already knew that]], but it's nice to see it acknowledged. Case in point: Pen-Pen is a Gundam pilot.
** [[ShrinkingViolet Shinji]] is a "[[DragonBallZ Goku]]-like Determinator."
** [[EmotionlessGirl Rei]] is an [[{{Kuudere}} Icy]], [[DefrostingIceQueen queenly]] DrillSergeantNasty. However, she's still quite {{Moe}}, as seen in Episode 5.
** [[{{Tsundere}} Asuka]] is a [[CheerfulChild cheerful]], [[GenkiGirl excitable]] [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Innocent Fanservicing]] fangirl.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Ritsuko Akagi has one, as she explains here.
--> "Although symptoms vary from person to person, my little 'mood swings', as you might term them, aren't actually manic episodes as pertains to bipolar disorder. Trust me; I've gotten the professional opinion of some of Japan's best psychiatrists."
-->"…then…''what'' the heck is it?"
-->Ritsuko chuckled. "They classified me…" The doctor suddenly pumped her fist. "AS '''UNCLASSIFIABLE!''' ''HOHOHAAAHAHAHAHAAAA!''"
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Gendo's "Welcome to Tokyo-3" postcards. Several of them are amazingly epic pictures, but the last is Gendo eating a sandwich with the caption of [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 "OM]] [[MemeticMutation NOM NOM NOM."]]
* AscendedExtra: Mana Kirishima and Mayumi Yamagishi have been upgraded to [[spoiler:the assigned pilots for the Jet Alone Project.]] Also, they're [[spoiler:Nephilim]].
* {{Badass}}: Gendo... yes, Gendo is a Badass.
* BadassBoast: Gendo Ikari gives one on behalf of humanity as a whole in Episode 16, following [[spoiler:Iruel's attack on the school]].
--> "So to the Angels that remain, wherever you are…because somehow, some way, I know that these words will reach you. No matter how you choose to strike us, we will ''fight''. No matter how much blood of ours you seek to shed, we will make sure that you ''choke'' on it! No matter how many times you may catch us in a moment of weakness, we will ''band together'' and ''stand as one!'' You seek to usher in the end of the world? You see us as mere lambs to be slaughtered? '''JUST WHO THE ''HELL'' DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!''' I’ll tell you who we are. We are humans. And we do not have to justify our existence to the likes of you."
* BadassCape: Gendo...again. Also seems to double as a UtilityBelt.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The Angels, according to Ramiel in Episode 9.
* BoldInflation: The psychic voices of the angels.
** NoIndoorVoice: All the Angels except Tabris speak in all caps. [[spoiler: Zeruel]] additionally uses italics [[spoiler: when not speaking in her human voice]].
* BridgeBunnies: Same crew from canon, except all of them are changed in some way: Hyuga is good at haggling, Aoba [[spoiler:is a girl]], and Maya [[spoiler:has a twin brother named Miyata...who's ALSO a Bridge Bunny.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: [[RuleOfThree Gendo again]]. This time he's joined with Ritsuko.
* CanonImmigrant: Mana Kirishima and Mayumi Yamagishi; see AscendedExtra.
** Mari Illustrious Makinami of the [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion the movies]] is now Mari Langley Sohryu, Asuka's eight-year old sister.
* ChildSoldiers: What [[spoiler:Nephilim were created to be. Rei fought in the Central American Wars; Mana and Mayumi are on loan to the Jet Alone Project from the JSSDF.]]
* CombiningMecha: The Jet Alone in this story has this as a feature.
* CoolBike: The "Misato Takes Shinji to NERV" scene is given a refreshing face-lift thanks to one of these. [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showpost.php?p=5670842&postcount=865 Observe.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Apparently, Nerv's idea of combat simulations "as comprehensive as possible" include a skirmish with a demon fox.
* CuteBruiser: Much to Rei's consternation, this is Misato's title for her during Shinji's training. There's a good reason for that.
* DeadFic: It was for a while, [[AvertedTrope but]] [[HesBack not anymore]].
* TheDeterminator: Shinji Ikari may become one in the [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild films]], but here he's one right off.
** Episode 9 shows that Rei has much practice in this trope.
* {{Expy}}: ...Let's say that we shouldn't let Ritsuko [[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce mess with corn]] and leave it at that.
** Tomoe Ikari, Shinji's uncle and Yui's brother, is a character borrowed from FanFic/NobodyDies. However, unlike the effeminate design Gregg Landsman settled on, Tomoe ''here'' [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist is essentially]] [[http://images.wikia.com/fma/images/d/d0/Basque.png this guy]].
** Misato's [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 team]] would look even ''more'' familiar if they started spontaneously shooting each other.
* FateWorseThanDeath: MAGI-00, known as HEROD, is [[spoiler: the partially pulverized body of Naoko Akagi. And she's still aware.]] It would lapse into AndIMustScream if [[spoiler: she couldn't already interact with others.]]
* FetchQuest: The Angels aren't mistaking LILITH for ADAM in this story; they just think LILITH knows where he is.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Played with in Episode 16; [[spoiler:Shinji and Ryo]] don't actually switch bodies or personalities...but everyone ''else'' thinks that [[spoiler:Shinji is Ryo]] and vice-versa, due to [[spoiler:Iruel's manipulation of their AT-Fields]].
* FromBadToWorse: [[LandDownUnder Australia]], already a [[DeathWorld death trap]], no longer exists as a country because Second Impact [[EverythingTryingToKillYou mutated the wildlife]].
** Averted in North America, with Second Impact creating the American [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Giant_Hornet Giant Hornet]]; [[WordOfGod according to the message board]], it's a HotBlooded insect that is currently driving the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africanized_bee Africanized "Killer" Bee]] to extinction, due to it being the only "challenge".
*** Still not completely averted, since Second Impact caused the sea level to rise by approximately seventy meters, resulting in [[http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/spaceart/earthicefreemask.gif this]].
* GambitPileup: Gendo has the Plan. SEELE has the Scenario. [[spoiler:Tabris]] has his own agenda. Ryoji Kaji is ''still'' playing the angles.
** As of Episode 11, [[spoiler:Iruel]] is around and going it alone.
* GenderFlip: [[spoiler:Shiori Aoba]].
** A semi-example with [[spoiler: Yomiko Nagisa, aka Zeruel - before ''Rebuild'' Zeruel was considered the most masculine of the Angels.]]
* HotBlooded: Shiro Tokita. You know, the head of the Jet Alone Project from canon.
** Mana Kirishima definitely qualifies.
* ICallItVera: Misato's HuskyRusskie teammate Mr. Kasparov calls the Evangelion-scale minigun 'Olga'.
* InsistentTerminology: Gendo coined the term '''LCL''', though for [[ShoutOut some reason]] Ritsuko wanted to call it [[FanNickname Tang]].
** Also, ''all'' Giant Piloted Robots ([[ItWasHisSled as opposed to the Angel-cloned Cyborgs that are the Evas]]) are called [[MobileSuitGundam Gundams]] in jargon, regardless of design details or materials. Naturally, [[InternetBackdraft fanboys the world over are not pleased.]]
** The SneezeCut trope is actually called the ''Quantum Sternutation Effect'' (or QSE) by Ritsuko. Gendo, as revealed in Episode 6, is immune.
* {{Kuudere}}: Rei Ayanami, bearing elements of both Type 1 and Type 2.
* LargeHam: Gendo ([[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showpost.php?p=5089991&postcount=304 as seen in]] [[MythologyGag the original proposal]]), and Ritsuko... great merciful heavens ''[[MadScientist Ritsuko]]''...
** Shiro Tokita, in ''spades''.
* LivingBodysuit: [[spoiler:Ryo Sawamura]] is this for [[spoiler:Iruel, the Tenth Angel]].
* LossOfIdentity: How [[spoiler:Iruel]] elects to make [[spoiler:Shinji]] suffer for Ramiel's defeat.
* MadScientist: ...just look at who's listed as a Ham.
* MagnificentBastard: [[invoked]] Gendo in Episode 8. Misato practically invokes the trope.
* ManipulativeBastard: Doesn't matter how great of a dad he's become, Gendo would not be Gendo if he weren't this.
* MauveShirt: [[spoiler:The Sawamuras.]]
* MicDrop: This is how Gendo Ikari concludes his BadassBoast from Episode 16.
* MotionCaptureMecha: The Jet Alone.
* MundaneMadeAwesome:
** [[CrazyAwesome NERV.ADVERTISING.STARRING.GENDO.]]
** "I'm standing on top of a motorcycle being driven by a hot woman." Yeah, this Gendo gives the one in FanFic/NobodyDies a run for his money.
* MythologyGag: In the third episode of the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion TV show]], Kensuke and Toji sneaked out of the shelter during an Angel attack [[FridgeLogic by asking to go to the restroom]]. In Episode 6 of the story, we see both Kensuke and Toji inside a shelter during an Angel attack, with the former wondering why they built the restrooms ''inside'' the shelter. Toji lampshades this by saying that [[CaptainObvious building the restrooms outside of a shelter is "retarded"]].
** Cue a SneezeCut from [[Creator/HideakiAnno Anno-sensei]] that's sitting right beside them in the same shelter.
** In Episode 8, a truant ninth-grader complains about his homeroom teacher always rambling on about Second Impact.
** In Episode 9, [[spoiler:Tabris]] references the Hedgehog's Dilemma.
** In Episode 14, when discussing the plan to stop Sahaquiel - named Operation ''Shop Till You Colony Drop'' - it's mentioned that the original working title was Operation ''Fly Me To the Moon''.
** In Episode 16, when [[spoiler:Gendo is flashing back to the time where he nearly strangled Shinji to death]], he poignantly thinks: ''I'm so [[PrecisionFStrike f***ed up.]]''
* NeverTrustATrailer: The story was inspired by this. As a kid, the author saw the page image without knowing anything else about ''Evangelion'', and made incorrect assumptions about the characters and setting. This fanfic is based off these original impressions.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: By Word of God, the design of Pieter Langley, Asuka and Mari's father, is based off of Creator/LiamNeeson.
* NowThatsUsingYourTeeth: Invoked by Gendo in Episode 6 regarding Unit-01.
* ObfuscatingInsanity: Gendo plays up his wackiness for his own benefit. Meanwhile Kihl Lorenz pens the semi-comedic ''"Second Impact: The Book: An Irreverent Look at the Worst Disaster in the History of Humanity"''
* OneSteveLimit: Averted; joining Hikari Horaki from canon is Hikari Kirishima, the overseer of Mana and Mayumi.
* PapaWolf: Pieter Langley, father of Asuka and Mari.
* RedBaron: Pieter. His nickname, according to Kaji? [[spoiler:The ''Jackal'']].
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: The three MAGI of canon - Balthasar, Melchior, and Caspar - are joined by a fourth MAGI named Herod.
* RousingSpeech: In Episode 16, when morale is flagging after [[spoiler:Iruel's assault on the school]], Gendo delivers one that gets the whole crowd roaring.
* RunningGag: In almost every episode, Gendo has pulled something out of his cloak, from the grapple gun to a bottle of root beer, from a flamethrower to a box of Pocky.
** Unit-01 keeps wrecking Toji's home; once against Sachiel, a second time against Ramiel.
** [[CoolPet Randall]] keeps sneaking up on people without them noticing. His explanation is always "I AM A CAT."
* SiblingYinYang: Mana and Mayumi, respectively.
** Also with [[spoiler: Kaworu and Yomiko.]]
* ShoutOut: [[ShoutOut/MobileFighterEvangelion Has it's own page.]]
* SneezeCut: Played with; see InsistentTerminology.
* SuperPrototype: The Jet Alone.
* SuperRobot: The Jet Alone in this continuity truly belongs to this class now. Its debut in Episode 8 alone satisfies at least five items on the checklist.
* Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike: Parodied at the beginning of the fourth episode.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted; Shinji is ordered to attend at least one therapy session with a psychiatrist after [[spoiler:being 'eaten' by the Fifth Angel]].
* TransformingMecha: The Jet Alone. So far, we have seen Jet Mode and Gundam Mode.
* {{Tsundere}}: Annette seems to be this where [[KissingCousins her cousin Shinji]] is concerned. The story DOES mention that she's not romantically involved, and that she is a rare Platonic Tsundere.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Ramiel]] after Unit-01 essentially [[spoiler:cripples its soul.]]
* VocalDissonance: [[spoiler: Zeruel's]] psychic voice is described as "loud and rumbling like an avalanche" [[spoiler: even though the Angel is in the form of a fourteen year old girl.]]
* WaveMotionGun: Ramiel's final attack had a power generation level of five million ''megawatts''. In other words, after fifteen seconds of continuous use, you have the equivalent power of the Hiroshima bomb. [[spoiler:Good thing Unit-00 stabbed its core before it could fire.]]
