Misato always wished that there was some way she could fight the Angels herself, instead of through the children. She had no idea that the power would practically fall into her lap, or that it would come in the form of a little green ring.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5054113/1/Superwomen-of-Eva-2-Emerald-Courage Superwomen of Eva 2: Emerald Courage]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1615106/Mike313 Mike313]] is a ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' story in which a dying Abin Sur, Franchise/GreenLantern of Sector 2184, bestows his [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum Power Ring]] to one Misato Katsuragi while she's on her way home after the destruction of Sandalphon.



* TheAlcoholic: Misato drops to this at one point, but [[CharacterDevelopment she gets better.]]
* AmazonianBeauty: Oddly enough, done explicitly, as Misato uses the ring's powers to buff up her muscles in addition to adding a mask and changing her hair color to maintain her SecretIdentity.
* BackToBackBadasses: Misato and Wonder Girl against [[spoiler:[[ManOfKryptonite Legion]].]]
* BadassCreed: We all know what it is.
* BadassInDistress: Happens to [[spoiler:Rei Ayanami]] at the climax, setting up the FinalBattle.
* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: [[spoiler:Wonder Girl]] has one with [[spoiler:[[GreyGoo Legion]].]]
* BigDamnHeroes: During the FinalBattle, Shinji [[spoiler:brings Misato's power battery and distracts Gendo, giving her a chance to recharge her power ring.]]
* BroadStrokes: ''Something'' from the [[spoiler:''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar'']] happened, what with [[spoiler: the very existence of the Sinestro Corps before Abin Sur's death.]]
* ChristmasCake: Misato gets a little depressed [[spoiler:and a little paedophiliac]] about it.
* CityOfAdventure: Tokyo-3 ''already'' has an active population of superwomen by the time Misato gets her GreenLanternRing, including [[Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton Power Girl]] and Wonder Girl.
* {{Cult}}: Misato's first outing as Green Lantern involves stopping one of these from performing a HumanSacrifice, though they don't appear to be organized enough to be a proper ReligionOfEvil.
* {{Determinator}}: You don't get to join the Corps without being one.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: [[spoiler:Misato manages this during the FinalBattle.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Green Lantern defeats her first Angel, [[spoiler:Matarael, by redirecting its own acid back toward it.]]
* ImaginationBasedSuperpower: Part of the Franchise/GreenLantern package.
* IronicEchoCut: When Nerv loses power, we get the following lines:
--> '''Misato''': "Guess I'm stuck here until Ritsuko manages to fix whatever it is she broke." *end scene*
--> '''Ritsuko''': *next scene* "Hey, it's not my fault."
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Kaji does, [[spoiler: when given the odds when Sahaquiel shows up.]] Too bad his GenreBlindness meant he didn't realize they all had PlotArmor.
* TheLadette: Misato, of course.
* ManOfKryptonite: [[spoiler:Legion, before being taken over by [[GreyGoo our much-hated Lilliputian Invader]], was a suit of PoweredArmor made in secret by Nerv with the objective to kill the superwomen. Bearing in mind, the only KryptoniteFactor it really has is being painted yellow and loading yellow ammunition (given the time frame with respect to its BroadStrokes treatment of the events of ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'', it's unlikely it has actual kryptonite, though there's no confirmation either way). Against Wonder Girl, all it has is [[MoreDakka lots and lots]] of [[{{BFG}} big friggin' guns]]. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Which it uses with gusto]].]]
* MuggingTheMonster: Misato and Shinji's mini-golfing trip is interrupted by armed robbers.
* MundaneUtility: When Kaji attempts to catch the elevator Misato is on, she uses her power ring to slam the doors in his face.
* ThePowerOfLove: [[spoiler:What pulls Misato back from the brink of despair during the FinalBattle.]]
* PragmaticAdaptation: The backstory of [[ManOfKryptonite Legion]] has been [[InNameOnly completely rewritten]] to fit the setting from its [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Legion_%28New_Earth%29 canon counterpart]] from the OriginsEpisode ''Emerald Dawn''. It's still a hive mind in a powerful yellow robot body, though.
* RingOfPower: Misato's GreenLanternRing, naturally.
* SecretIdentity: Misato realizes she needs one, as Gendo would brook no outside interference in the war against the Angels.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Less Misato's Green Lantern outfit and more what she chooses to wear when mini-golfing with Shinji.
* SupermanStaysOutOfGotham: More like "[[Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton Power Girl]] is (in)conveniently in Berlin."
* ThouShaltNotKill: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. Green Lantern doesn't kill humans, but she rarely faces human enemies to begin with, and no emphasis is placed on this.
* WeakButSkilled: A variant in the FinalBattle. [[spoiler:Despite the disadvantage of wielding a power ring that cannot affect anything yellow against a yellow power ring, Misato's greater experience with it trumps the inherent disadvantage.]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: The color yellow. [[spoiler:Which raises all sorts of questions about what parts of the ''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar'' actually happened.]]
* WolverinePublicity: [[Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton Power Girl]] makes a sudden appearance out of left field and battles[[spoiler: and ultimately kills Amon Sur of the Sinestro Corps]] while Misato's at the park, [[HeroesGoneFishing without her ring and completely unaware of what's going on]]. She also appears in a few other small scenes [[HeroOfAnotherStory completely disconnected from the main plot]] in reference to ''[[Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton events in her own story]]'', and in the FinalBattle [[spoiler:outs herself and tears the MP-Evas apart.]]
