YMMV / Evangelion Gear

  • Ass Pull: Anti-AT Field weaponry. Something that is never established in the anime, and isn't even given a token explanation as to how it came to be.
  • Badass Decay: Multible characters from the NGE side of the crossover, including the Angels, Evangelions, Kaworu, Seele, Gendo (he even pisses his pants) and Asuka, mostly due to the overuse of the Curb-Stomp Battle trope, but not only. MGS characters aren't immune to it either, as the FROGS, who played the role of Elite Mooks in the games, get a pitiful Red Shirt Army treatment and are slaughtered by the JDSSF. Despite there being no indication that the JSSDF has any of the advanced equipment that made the FROGS tough enemies. Subverted partialy at the end with Asuka.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Asuka, and Shinji. Hard to tell which of them of more jerkass (although with Shinji, it's largely unintentional), but Asuka ends up as more of a woobie, seeing how she ends up, and how she is treated by others. See Ron the Death Eater, and Yank the Dog's Chain on the main page, for details.
  • Ron the Death Eater: Quite visibly attempted with Asuka, who has her canon flaws increadibly exagerated. Although how horribly she is abused by pretty much everyone, and her horrible final fate (see Yank the Dog's Chain on the main page), makes her Unintentionally Sympathetic. Gendo himself definitely qualifies though, even if he wasn't a good guy in the anime. All of his positive traits are gone, and even his love towards Yui, is changed into a mere obsesion.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Shinji. We're meant to feel bad for him because of all the crap he went through and being depressed to the point where he nearly murdered his classmates. However, he's such a Jerkass who lashes out at pretty much the entire Evangelion cast so frequently, regardless of whether they deserve it or not, that it's hard to take his side.
  • What an Idiot!: Gendo, for bringing John Hayter (a five-star General of the United Nations protected under Diplomatic Immunity and the single greatest soldier who ever lived who also happens to be Gendo's superior) into his office just so he could threaten him with death if he didn't stay away from Shinji. Needless to say, the ensuing asskicking Hayter dishes out to Gendo's goons followed by the Nerv Commander himself pissing his pants in response to Hayter's own death threats was cathartic.
