* ArtisticLicenseEconomics:
** Tom tries to raise money by letting people challenge him... for a few yen each, as he apparently don't grasp exchange values. He makes a total of six hundred yen, which he spends on a lavish dinner at a restaurant for all his friends.
** One chapter has Tom's band signing a contract, recording a CD and having it released to million-plus sales... all within a week. The [=MSTers=] point out just how little sense this makes.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics:
** The Progressive Grenades, The Nuclear Based Cannon... in fact, the entirety of the space trip to DELTA could be summarized as this.
** When the heroes' ship is attacked en-route to DELTA, there's a brawl with intercepting Invadors. When killed, the Invadors spiral down to their doom. ''In space.''
** In the fic, the moon was formed when Lilith blasted Atlantis off Earth and into space. There are no words for how wrong this is. Also, Atlantis was in the Pacific ocean...



* BetaCouple: Shinji and Rei. BrotherSisterIncest is (sort of) averted by an AuthorsSavingThrow RetCon where it turns out Rei was unrelated to Shinji but [[YouFailBiologyForever injected with Yui's DNA]] for... um... some reason.

* OldShame: The Author pulled the fic from the sites that it was hosted on because it "didn't represent his vision for Evangelion". That it had become a subject for fandom-wide mockery probably also factored into it. One of the reasons why no "raw" version was known to exist.
** That the man has the decency to be ashamed of himself provides a small comfort to anyone who has ever read the fic, as it happens.

* AlasPoorVillain: Tom genuinely feels bad about killing Matt Yazama. Never mind that Matt killed hundreds of innocent people during his rampage, attempted to start Third Impact and showed no hints of remorse for his actions (and actually seemed quite enthusiastic about it)
** Before he encountered Matt, Tom had already killed plenty of SEELE Soldiers without [[WhatMeasureIsAMook a second thought]].

** Asuka's entire characterization is well-summed up in these two lines from the MST. (Chapter Four, when Jeff attacks Tom):
--> Asuka screamed,
--> '''Tsuneo''': And twisted her ankle, no doubt.[[note]] In the Rebuild, Rebecca says this line.[[/note]]



* InformedAttribute: John Barren is special, and you will be reminded of this fact constantly. Of course, he is actually an inferior Evangelion pilot to everyone else, is effortlessly trashed in virtually every fight he's in, never contributes to the plot and spends the last few chapters in a coma. But he's special. Really.

* ScifiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Chapter Nine is made of this trope. It features heavily throughout the series, but in that one chapter it becomes really, really glaring. Between the five-hundred meter long ship with a crew of eight (plus one passenger) and the six-week trip across the solar system, there's very little "in scale" to be had.

** That she broke up with Tom after he abruptly left to move to the other side of the world is never once taken into consideration, not is the fact that Tom hooked up with Asuka before he knew that Jenya had dumped him.
** The [=MSTers=] note that there is far too much hate poured onto her for a one-scene fictional character, suggesting that her appearance was a TakeThat aimed at the author's ex.

* SlutShaming: Tom's ex-girlfriend Jenya is mentioned several times before finally appearing in the last chapter. In each case, she has abuse heaped on her by Tom for dumping him and then hooking up with and dumping his best friend, Mike. Added to that, Tom compares her unfavorably with Asuka throughout. She contributes nothing to the plot, but the whole thing feels like the author venting at a real ex-girlfriend.

''Neon Genesis Evangelion II: DELTA Invasion'', to give it its full title, is a [[SelfInsertFic self-insertion]] [[FanFic fanfic]] written by Tom Dyron. Like many other [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]] fics, it was [[{{MSTing}} MSTed]] at [[http://www.heavens-feel.com/elmer/elmer.htm Elmer Studios]] (link goes to a mirror, the old site was on the now-defunct Geocities) and an [[http://pamachu-productions.blogspot.com/ audiobook production]] is also currently in the works. Set post-series (but ignoring both episodes 25-26 and ''End of Evangelion''), it concerns NERV's conflict with a new group of enemies called Invadors (yes, it's spelled like that throughout) and the adventures of new pilot [[MartyStu Tom Dyron]].

Considered to be a "Cult Classic" of badfic in its day, DELTA Invasion still gets a giggle every now and then. No "raw", non-[=MST=]ed copies were known to exist [[http://web.archive.org/web/20001017024509/http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Palace/9623/delta.html until very recently]]. Whether this is a good or bad thing is another matter.

In 2012, Elmer Studios themselves came out of retirement with an updated version of the MSTing, the [[http://elmerstudios.blogspot.com.au/search/label/delta%20invasion "Rebuild of Delta"]], published on the [[http://elmerstudios.blogspot.com.au/ Elmer Studios Blog]].
