Gendo Ikari believed that he'd planned for every possible contingency in his scenario. However, not even Gendo could anticipate the gods of the Greek pantheon naming Rei Ayanami their champion and charging her with saving the world from him.

''[[ Superwomen of Eva 2: Amazing Amazon]]'' by [[ Mike313]] is a ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' story in which the Greek pantheon receives a prophecy warning them of Third Impact and chooses a champion to save the world, Rei Ayanami, empowering and training her as [[Franchise/WonderWoman the Wonder Girl]].



* ActionSurvivor: Shinji. Seriously. [[spoiler: He killed a ''{{hellhound}}'' with a ''sword.'']]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Power Girl was shown to just be outright more powerful than Rei, overpowering an Angel with brute force when Rei couldn't and freezing the resulting tidal wave ([[NiceJobBreakingItHero that she caused]]) which Rei was helpless to do anything about. When they fought briefly, Power Girl easily won, not even needing to use half her powers. Although [[CurbStompCushion Rei got a few good hits in]], she [[CurbStompBattle was overpowered in physical combat]] and [[YouCanRunButYouCantHide hunted down with X-ray vision when she tried to ambush her]].
* AmazonianBeauty: Surprisingly, partially [[AvertedTrope averted]], despite the title and plot, as while Rei does train among the Amazons, she never gains the extremely heavily-muscled look the trope calls for[[labelnote:note]]To explain: she ''does'' gets muscle, but it's not ComicBook/SheHulk levels of it. She manages to conceal her muscle development as a side-effect from post-Fifth-Angel physical therapy[[/labelnote]]. Played very much straight in the {{Fanart}}, though.
* ArrowCatch: A variant (blocking with her bracers in classic ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' tradition) as her final test after training with the Amazons.
* ArtisticLicenseShips: During the battle with Gaghiel, the ''[[ Nimitz]]''-class [[ destroyer]] ''[[ Arizona]]'' is among the ships sunk.
* BigBad: For once, it's ''not'' [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEE]][[GovernmentConspiracy LE]] or [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo]]. [[spoiler:[[EverybodyHatesHades It's Hades.]]]]
* BossRush: [[spoiler:Hades]] challenges Wonder Girl to face down [[spoiler:every single Angel Nerv has slain, from Sachiel to Sandalphon. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome And she wins.]]]]
* BulletCatch: Well, bullet deflect with her bracers in the ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' tradition.
* CharacterDevelopment: Considering Rei's [[ApocalypseMaiden intended role]] in Third Impact...
* TheChosenOne: Rei, as identified in prophecy by [[NoManOfWomanBorn her unusual (read: clone) origins]].
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman:
** Although Rei does get a bevy of innate superpowers, still others are a function of her Amazonian artifacts, most notably her InvisibilityCloak and her sandals, which put the [[{{Flight}} "flying"]] in FlyingBrick.
** Which came in handy in her appearance in ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton''. When Parasite drained her and Asuka's innate powers, her artifacts were still functioning.
* DarkIsEvil: [[TheDragon Dark Centurion]] seems to favor black armor.
* DevilInPlainSight: The Dark Centurion is this. [[spoiler: He even dated Asuka for a short while, and this was an important factor in his plan to [[LetsYouAndHimFight have Power Girl and Wonder Girl fight each other]].]]
%% * DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Cheetah.]]
* DivineParentage: Dark Centurion is [[spoiler:Hades's]] son.
* DramaticIrony: The story would have probably gone a lot differently if Athena hadn't kept interrupting Rei and allowed her to explain that [[spoiler: yes, she knows about the upcoming apocalypse, and yes, she knows she can stop it, and yes, she even knows how, but no, she has no intention of doing so.]]
* EverybodyHatesHades: As per the ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' source material, but at least this time, there's a decent [[JustifiedTrope justification]].
* FlyingBrick: Rei gets the usual Amazonian power package, either through powers granted by the Greek gods or through artifacts, including...
** {{Flight}}: From her sandals.
** NighInvulnerability
** SuperReflexes
** SuperStrength
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: A Halloween {{Omake}} has Rei going out for candy in her Wonder Girl uniform alongside Shinji (who is similarly using his Evangelion piloting plugsuit). [[BewareTheQuietOnes Bad things ensue]] [[DisproportionateRetribution to someone who doesn't gives her candy]], and her first experience with candy is... [[IntoxicationEnsues interesting]], to say the least.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Mentioned and seen in passing when Pen-Pen warms up to Rei rather quickly.
* ImmuneToBullets: Rei discovers the hard way that her Amazonian body is capable of this. "The hard way" because [[DeathOfAThousandCuts massed fire]] [[spoiler:(like, say, from every firearm-carrying soldier that is on Hades)]] still hurts like hell.
* InSpiteOfANail: Sadly, despite her powers, training, and artifacts, Wonder Girl has yet to make a single positive impact in the war against the Angels as compared to canon, a few times [[NiceJobBreakingItHero actually making things worse]], despite the fact that preventing Third Impact was the whole ''point'' of giving her all those powers, training, and artifacts in the first place. Her only real successes so far have been in restoring events to TheStationsOfTheCanon after her own enemies attempted to make things go OffTheRails.
%% * KryptoniteFactor: Olympian bronze.
* LeotardOfPower: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] when Athena points out that Hephaestus doesn't get much love.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Engineered between Wonder Girl and [[spoiler:''[[Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton Power Girl]]'']] by Dark Centurion. [[CurbStompCushion Rei manages to deliver some damage in the ensuing battle]], [[CurbStompBattle but in the end it was too much for her]]. [[BondVillainStupidity The Dark Centurion screwed the pooch on the "deliver killing blow to Wonder Girl myself" step of the plan, though]].
* MadeOfIndestructium: Rei's bracers and lasso.
* TheMaze: During the mass power outage that heralded Matarael's arrival, [[spoiler: Dark Centurion applies some magic to turn the access tunnels into this, trapping the pilots in order to murder them.]]
* TheMentor: Aphrodite and Athena, in matters of love and war, respectively.
* MythologyGag: Asuka often calls Rei "Wonder Girl" in the English dub of Eva. The pun of Rei ''actually'' being [[Franchise/WonderWoman Wonder Girl]] is not something that just this 'fic has noticed.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Her intervention with the Jet Alone demonstration [[spoiler: results in things going much worse, including Misato breaking an arm and getting a nearly fatal dose of radiation.]] To be fair, [[ALessonInDefeat Apollo goaded her into interfering]] to [[CharacterDevelopment teach her]] that she shouldn't necessarily always [[JustFollowingOrders follow orders]]. Also happens when Poseidon grabs the IdiotBall after [[spoiler: Wonder Girl is apparently defeated by Gaghiel and decides to send a couple of {{Sea Monster}}s to help out... [[PoorCommunicationKills without telling anyone.]] The UN fleet that just got ravaged by the ''last'' SeaMonster to show up reacts [[ShootEverythingThatMoves pretty much how you'd expect.]]]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by [[spoiler:Hades]] ([[NeverMyFault despite it being his plan]]) after Matarael is defeated because [[spoiler: Dark Centurion]] sent [[spoiler: Cheetah, one of the few people who could navigate TheMaze,]] to kill the pilots when simply keeping them from their Evas until Matarael succeeded in causing Third Impact would have accomplished their goals.
* OffScreenMomentOfAwesome: Asuka [[spoiler: somehow manages to defeat an undead minotaur with her bare hands and claim one of its horns as a trophy.]] Although we don't get to see how she pulls this off, a later reveal ''[[Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton gives us a pretty good idea]]''.
* OutsideContextHero: Wonder Girl, which is neatly summed up by Gendo as he narrowly reins in a VillainousBreakdown.
--> '''Gendo''': "I have hundreds upon hundreds of contingency plans, Sensei. If every member of SEELE is simultaneously assassinated, and the UN General Assembly starts to look much more closely at NERV and the monies that go to it, I have a plan for that. If the United States decides to nationalize the Evangelions being built on its soil and attack the other NERV branches, I have a plan for that. If ''Belgium'' declares war on NERV, I have a plan for that, too. What I do ''not'' have a plan for is a situation where a girl with the strength of hundreds of men shows up, and monsters out of ancient works of fiction follow."
%% * PhysicalGod: The Greek gods.
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: Wonder Girl appears far more awesome and {{badass}} when guest-starring in other ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' stories (like ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'') than in her own story, and it never seems to translate back to ''Amazing Amazon''.
* ThePowerOfLove: This is pretty much the only thing that keeps Rei from immediately reporting everything to Gendo ([[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove not that she realizes it at the time]]). Another, relatively minor example is when thinking of Rei makes Shinji go from [[spoiler: [[FaceDeathWithDignity accepting his imminent demise]] to [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome grabbing a sword and killing a hellhound.]]]]
* PrimaryColorChampion: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] when Athena explains Hephaestus's fondness of the United States during TheSpaceRace.
* TheProphecy: How the Greek pantheon learns of [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]].
* TropaholicsAnonymous: On an {{Omake}}, ''Leliel'' ends up going to a {{Kaiju}} support group for giant monsters that were [[NukeEm attacked with nukes]]. Led by Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. And which were [[EvenEvilHasStandards more than a little shocked to hear]] that Leliel was hit with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill almost a thousand nukes]], decrying that HumansAreTheRealMonsters and [[HypocriticalHumor should just let them stomp all over]] [[TheTokyoFireball Tokyo in peace]]. Also a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
* RightHandVersusLeftHand: What is happening with the gods, in a nutshell. [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The Angels winning]] [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly would not help them any]], so they [[TheChosenOne choose Rei]] as their champion and even [[EnemyMine have banded together to deliver some hurt to the Angels when possible]]. [[spoiler: However, [[EverybodyHatesHades Hades]] [[OmnicidalManiac has decided that all of humanity dying out would be best for him]]...]], and of course, this is [[JerkassGod the Greek Pantheon]] we're talking about.
* SecretIdentity: Absolutely crucial and enabled by a magical PerceptionFilter in the form of her tiara.
* ShipperOnDeck: Aphrodite. So much. Given her portfolio, though, it's only natural.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: The aforementioned LeotardOfPower. Oddly enough, the gods are a mite disturbed that [[ExtremeDoormat Rei didn't seem]] [[EmotionlessGirl to care about that]] when she was first presented with it.
* SuperDrowningSkills: With Rei's help, Shinji overcomes this.
* ToHellAndBack: When [[spoiler: Athena is kidnapped by Hades]], Rei decides to [[StormingTheCastle assault his plane]] to get her back. This ends up in her facing off against [[spoiler:[[TheLegionsOfHell various demons]], a [[ZergRush really, 'really' big bunch]] of [[NightOfTheLivingMooks deceased soldiers]], and [[BossRush every angel killed so far]]. And also [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind having tea with the Rei that was before her.]]]]
* TrainingFromHell: Implied about Rei's training with the Amazons. See ArrowCatch above.
* WeaksauceWeakness: A mild example. As part of a curse given to him by the Greek gods, [[spoiler: the Dark Centurion]] has a very bad case of hay fever. Before being called by his father to Tokyo-3, he lived in [[ShinyNewAustralia Post-Second-Impact]] {{UsefulNotes/Australia}}, which was the ''only'' place where he wasn't affected by his hay fever (mostly because [[PlaceWorseThanDeath The Outback]] was ''that'' devoid of life).
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Unusually, this time, it's the protagonist who's effectively asking that question.
