Evil Manga KaworuExplanation Perhaps as a result of his Misaimed Fandom, the manga made Kaworu less ambiguous in his intentions and more sinister, leading to this to distinguish between the two versions.
Every time you masturbate Kaworu kills a kitten. Explanation Created after the above, a variation on the popular meme of "Everytime you masturbate God kills a kitten".
Robo-Shinji. Explanation Used to refer to Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2, since it was pointed out how similar he was to Shinji conceptually. Ironically, there's an ending in one of the Lighter and Softer games where Shinji is turned into Robocop. No kidding.
Thisis when the fanbasestopped making funof Shinji. Explanation Due to pulling off perhaps one of the most amazing 7 minutes in anime history at the end of 2.0, nobody makes fun of Shinji anymore... except for people who don't accept the Rebuild series.
Who killed Ryouji Kaji? Explanation (spoilers) Kaji's killer is never seen, and speculation about them abounded until Word of God put their foot down and said it was just a random soldier.
Kaworu died for your sins! Again!Explanation (spoilers) Kaworu is frequently interpreted as a Christ figure, a divine being sacrificing himself so that humankind can live, leading to this. Became an Ascended Meme when ADV Films created a bumper sticker with this phrase on it.More Explanation (spoilers) History repeats itself when in Evangelion 3.0 he sacrificed himself so humanity can live again.
ZOMG TEH REI!!Explanation A summary of Rei's (according to Word of God, misaimed) fandom. Derives from a short-lived 4chan meme where someone used MS paint to give a penis blue hair to vaguely resemble Rei, and drew "TEH REI" next to it. Yeah.
I mustn't run away, I mustn't run away, I mustn't run away, I mustn't run away, I mustn't run away, I MUSTN'T RUN AWAY, I MUSTN'T RUN AWAY, I MUSTN'T RUN AWAY, I MUSTN'T RUN AWAY!!!!!!!Explanation Shinji attempts to use this as his Survival Mantra. It doesn't quite work that way...
"I will not be a puppet for you to control." Explanation Said by Rei III to Gendo as she disowns him while he tries to create his version of Instrumentality, becomes independent and does it her way. So popular is the equivalent phrase in Japan that they parodied it on Keroro Gunsou.
"Captain Asuka" or "Asuka the Pirate", taken from her eyepatch in the Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 teaser, is already becoming a meme.
A more recent preview has further mutated this into Space Pirate Asuka.
And let's not for get the huge pause in episode 24 right in the middle of the climax that could've been altered into a Smash Cut, but instead, we get lurched into still frame purgatory! STILL FRAME PURGATORY!!!GAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!
"Reiquarium": Explanation (spoilers) Fan Nickname adopted as the official term for a massive aquarium-like construct that holds dozens of spare body clones for Rei, should her current body be destroyed, and infamously known for a ruthless dose of horror the moment Ritsuko expresses her hatred for them, pushes a button, and makes every last clone rot to pieces.
"Giant Naked Rei (GNR)": Explanation (spoilers) Fan Nickname for the Gainax Ending antics of End of Evangelion- Rei fuses with Lilith while she's completely naked, having disregarded her lack of clothing as important and left her school uniform garb behind in the "Reiquarium;" Lilith assumes Rei's form, then grows unbelievably huge anatomically, so to speak. In other words, her big 'uns are the size of Asia.
"Kimochi warui (I feel sick)."/"How disgusting." Explanation (spoilers) The very coldly delivered final line of End of Evangelion in both the Japanese and English dubs, respectively- spoken by Asuka as Shinji sobs over her body, thus cementing a despairing to end the series and killing any hope of a truly happy conclusion.
Everybody finds love in the end. Explanation (spoilers) Line from "Sakura Nagashi", the ED of Evangelion 3.0., as a sort of mantra to hope for a happy ending in Final (after the overall bleakness of 3.0., which contrasted the Lighter and Softer feel from 1.0. and 2.0.).
End Of X. Explanation : When a movie is either a) made of mind-screw or, more negatively, b) seems to deliberately troll the audience by making no sense, it can be called this, in reference to The End of Evangelion.
GET IN THE FUCKING ROBOT, SHINJI. Explanation A catchphrase that sums up the habit of jokingly claiming that everything Shinji is called on to do - i.e. piloting a giant cyborg with a mind of its own to fight Physics-buggering monsters that want to destroy humanity, while being constantly bullied, manipulated and ignored by his none-too-stable colleagues - is perfectly normal and not worth complaining about.
GET THE FUCK OUT OF THAT ROBOT, SHINJI! Explanation As of 3.33, it was to prevent another awakening.
