That we didn't call this trope "Rei Clone" is a waste I say.

So, what happens when an character predates the trope namer? To be more specific, I'm talking about Angel from One Must Fall 2097. One Must Fall came out in 1994. Evangelion first aired in 1995. I'm sorely tempted to just make a note that points out this fact.

Hmm, maybe not perfect matches, but how about Anju Maaka from Karin, or Kamiyama Meme from Kamisama Kazou?

What about Kanna from Inuyasha?

She may not be a teenager (physically something like ten or eleven, I believe), but she does have the pale skin and petite frame.

Again, her hair is not short, but it is white and her eyes are black.

Her odd behavior definitely comes from not being a human, but being made to be void.

It might just be me interpreting it, but she did seem to wish to be more 'normal' as time passed. She cared for Kagura and at the end Kagome learned she didn't want to die and she did have feelings, hinting at this.

Also, later, she controls a GIANT MIRROR MONSTER that reminded me personally of a mecha.

What about making this trope's name Rei Ayanami Clone? I know we did the same to a bunch of other characters, but this one is special... considering her background.

Rei Clone is already a redirect. But it probably would be a better name. We already have Char Clone and Shana Clone, and this is the trope that would be especially and awesomely fitting, and it would work well with the other two.

I agree, but we should probably make it Rei Ayanami Clone so we don't get confused with other Rei's that exist (the one from Sailor Moon, for instance.)

Took this out:

  • Near from Death Note is an interesting case: he's a male, and his stoic exterior is so thick that it masks this trope—however, he is a kuudere—controlling all of his emotional responses so one can see them without perceiving them as emotional, he appears otherworldly, and thus this applies

Near has white hair, controls his emotions and is a bit strange, but a kuudere? Are we ever shown signs of a hidden, "cute" inner person? He plays with toys, but not in secret, and he even uses them to help him think - that is, for intellectual purposes. Most importantly, though, he doesn't have a Become a Real Boy objective at all.

I would argue that he's a subversion (but it's pushing it even then), given that parts of his inner person are revealed: his disapproval at the dissolution of the SPK, his glee at meeting Light, and Light's Motive Rant about his ego. However, it is not shown as 'cute', thus subverting it

Why are Primula from Shuffle and Vanilla from Galaxy Angel not included? Is it the long hair? Otherwise I can't imagine why ....

Probably no one thought to add them yet. Feel free to do so yourself.

This isn't a definitive list, we are definitely missing some, so go ahead and add them.

Ahh indeed. I'm sometimes hesitant because I don't know what qualifications people assume to be part of a trope. In this case Vanilla and Primula both have excessively long hair and identifying them as members of the Rei brigade may not be inherently obvious unless the characters are well known.

Is the redirect "Teh Rei" supposed to be "The Rei"?
YamiiDenryuu

Nope. The misspelling of "Teh" is some sort of meme, I believe.

It came from 4chan as a response to whenever someone posted H images of her. Example: Anon1 posts H image of Rei Anon2 respondes: "ZOMG!!!11111!!! TEH REI!"
