Fan Fic: Thousand Shinji
Thousand Shinji is a Neon Genesis Evangelion/Warhammer 40,000 fanfic that takes a different tack from the "competitor", Shinji And Warhammer 40 K. In this reality, Warhammer 40,000 as a universe exists. Shinji was found as a young boy and trained by Khnemu, a displaced Sorcerer of the Thousand Sons Legion. When summoned by Gendo to Tokyo-3, Shinji begins his own machinations to repay Gendo for his "kindness", only to have things go awry.

Completed. The Mega Crossover sequel The Open Door is officially dead.

Tropes found in Thousand Shinji:

  • All Your Powers Combined: The MP Evas have abilities from all the Angels. Tzintchi also receives the knowledge of the canon!40k gods.
  • Anti-Hero: This version of Shinji pulls a Palpatine in Chapter 15, while clad in a black robe. "A pity you only learned this at the end. And now young Angel, you die," Shinji stated before pouring lightning into the body of the Seventeenth Angel.
  • Anti-Villain Protagonist: Shinji qualifies, depending on which side of the thin Anti-Hero-Anti-Villain line you see him as falling into.
  • An Axe to Grind: A chain-axe for Unit 02, eventually replaced by a Bloodthirster axe against the MP Evas.
  • Back from the Dead: Hikari amongst others.
  • Badass: No doubts about it, this version of Shinji is one bad motherfucker.
  • Big Damn Heroes: "I hate playing the Big Damn Hero."
  • Black and Grey Morality: Shinji will do nasty things in defence of his friends or as revenge for things done to them, but compared to Gendo or the SEELE men he looks a lot better.
  • Chainsaw Good: A chain-axe for Unit 02.
  • Chekhov's Boomerang: Shinji makes repeated use of the Rubric Marines within Khnemu's jars, but at the end it is the canon!40k gods who emerge from them.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: The soldiers who finish off Ramiel.
  • Cherry Tapping: The 4th Angel is killed by two soldiers with a TOW missile.
  • Creepy Child: Rei, but Shinji gets in on the act too.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: 40 35 Special Forces agents under SEELE versus one three four Rubric Marines. No contest.
  • Didn't See That Coming: "Despite all of our power… we got blindsided by something that fell out of the purview of the things we normally kept track of."
  • Enemy Civil War: "This went beyond a simple cluster fuck, this transcended into the realm where future generations of soldiers would refer to a situation this badly screwed up that they would have to call such scenarios "Tokyo-3"." Also, the only reason why the canon!40k gods had to work together was because their inter-factional fighting allowed the C'tan to gain a vital advantage.
    • The phrase "Tokyo-3" really does survive, as a phrase for completely screwed up military events. Lars uses it in The Open Door.
  • Faster-Than-Light Travel: The explicit lack thereof due to the C'tan's machinations and the consequences of this is what forced the canon!40k gods to work together.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: What happens to Gendo and the SEELE committee.
  • Gratuitous German: Naturally with Asuka.
  • Hand Cannon: The Rubric Marines' bolters are repeatedly noted as being more suited to crew-manning. Eva-scale ones are part of L-Type Equipment.
  • Heroic BSOD: Shinji goes into one of these after Misato dies, but recovers shortly after, partly due to his desire to pay the Keeper of Secrets back for its deeds.
  • High-Pressure Blood: Unit 02 starts bleeding majorly just before going Bloodthirster.
  • Hive Mind: The MP Evas are explicitly said to have this.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Unit 02 pulls weapons out of nothingness during its Bloodthirster transformation.
  • Immune to Bullets: The Rubric Marines, justified due to the severe technological gap.
  • Meaningful Name: Asukhon, the Eightfold Victor, Tzintchi, the Nine-Fingered King, Reigle of the Seven Lives and Mislaato of the Six Wounds definitely qualify.
  • Mecha Expansion Pack: L-Type Equipment for the Evas.
  • Mind Rape:
  • Mind Screwdriver: A large part of the final chapter, following Academia Nut's Take That to the Gainax Ending.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: The Rubric Marines and this is justified the same way as with their immunity to bullets.
  • Noble Demon: Shinji.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: It is explicitly noted that Asuka should have been dead twice over during the fight against the MP Evas.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Inverted in Chapter 8. Shinji and Asuka tip over the chair they're sitting on while making out and end up with Shinji's hands on Asuka's breasts. When Misato walks in on them, Shinji states that the situation is exactly what it looks like. She doesn't believe a word of it.
  • Nuke 'em: N2 mines all over the place.
  • Omniscient Morality License: Why did the God-Emperor have the others send a Keeper of Secrets instead of a Lord of Change back in time? So Shinji would become emotionally mature and not abuse humanity after his ascension to godhood.
  • One-Winged Angel: Eva Unit-02. Yes.
  • One World Order: "Today there are no more nations, there is only humanity."
  • Physical God: At the end, Shinji, Rei, Asuka and Misato become the new Chaos gods. The key element that The Open Door readers Should Know Already.
  • Power Echoes: Shinji ends up using this.
  • Power Floats: Shinji ends up using this.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Unit 02 gains Bloodthirster wings against the MP Evas.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Shinjidoes this repeatedly with Asuka.
    Mmmm… remote viewing, it's a beautiful thing!
  • Psychic Powers: Wielded by Shinji amongst others.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Pick a tense and stick with it, will you?
  • Scars Are Forever: Lord Tzintchi, the Nine Fingered King, although it may be deliberate.
  • Seeker White Blood Cells: VERY squicky example: when Iruel makes his appearance and tries to infect Rei, her body is transformed into a bloated, pus-dripping mass of flesh that is a literal FACTORY of all kinds of nasty viruses purpose-made to kill Iruel's nanites.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: The reason for the canon!40k gods' Gambit Roulette.
  • Shout-Out: Reference is made to the many NGE AUs created with Possession Sue Shinjis, including but not limited to a certain Peggy Sue fic.
    • As with the other well-known NGE/WH40K fic, the author seems to be a Troper, and refers to several tropes by name.
    • There's also a brief Shout-Out to Buffy in Chapter 18: "Bored now."
    • In Chapter 15, Kaworu imitates Dio Brando by telekinetically throwing knives at Shinji, and then dropping a steamroller on him.
  • Strange Bedfellows: Nothing less than an overwhelmingly bad situation could possibly force the canon!40k gods to work together. We're talking a reluctant agnostic/atheist turned God-Emperor of Man, the Four Ruinous Powers (whom are sufficiently powerful that the *only* reason they haven't taken over the world is because they A) *HATE* each other, B) like it just the way it is, and C) already have...), Gork & Mork (the deities of a bunch of genetically engineered fungal bio-weapon), and the Eldar Pantheon (and let's not talk about all the shit they got up to with each other! It's like the Olympians all over again! Er, I mean...).
  • Super Strength: Asuka eventually develops this.
  • Take That: "For those of you prepared to rant at me, there is one more chapter to this story, so unlike Gainax, you will actually get an explaination (sic) as part of the denouement."
  • Tranquil Fury: Shinji goes into one of these after learning about the true fate of his and his friends' mothers.
  • Trash of the Titans: Misato's apartment is so messy it convinces Shinji that she's a "damned Slaaneshi daemon princess".
  • Unstoppable Rage: Asuka succeeds in making Unit 02 berserk, unlike in canon.
  • Wham Episode: Chapter 14, where flashback reveal Shinji's plans going badly wrong. Some reviewers claimed that he was screwed over even worse than in canon.
  • You Just Told Me: When Kaworu shows up, he gives away his true nature to Shinji by referring to humanity as "Lilim".
