* BigEater: Kaworu's S2 engine means he [[EatingOptional doesn't actually need to eat]], but ever since coming to Japan he has discovered he ''likes'' to - No matter if it is big steaks or a large pile of hamburgers.

Added DiffLines:

** When the pilots all wear one as a sign of solidarity, Asuka's is the only one the looks somewhat good. Rei's is a dull grey, Shinji's is brown with far too many pockets, and Kaworu's has several patches.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* MinorLivingAlone: First, only Rei as in canon. Then she and Asuka moved into an apartment of their own, though it is in the same apartment bloc as Misato's. Then Shinji moved in there as well. During her big apology, Misato even offered to leave them alone entirely, though the kids didn't want that.


* DroppingTheBombshell: In Chapter 39, Rei reveals to Asuka and Shinji that not only is she a clone created by NERV, but she's also part Angel. She also reveals the former part to Misato that same chapter.

* SincerityMode: To Asuka's shock, Misato is completely sincere when the woman calls her Langley-Soryu-sama while making amends.


Whatever the premise of a ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fic, whatever change has happened in it, the angels are usually very reliable [[TheStationsOfTheCanon stations of the canon]]. We nearly always know what angel will come next.

Not so in ''Neon Metathesis Evangelion''. The basic premise is that the angels arrive in a ''different'' order. This of course has repercussions on SEELE’s plans, Gendo’s plans… and the relationships between the pilots. Breaking through the usual pattern of a v-formed LoveTriangle between Asuka, Shinji and Rei, the three slowly (''very'' slowly) begin to care for each other and [[{{Polyamory}} form a triad]].

When Strypgia's ''FanFic/AdviceAndTrust'' began to get popular, it inspired a new wave of Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion fics on the forum Sufficient Velocity. Among them was ''[[https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/neon-metathesis-evangelion-nge.30952/ Neon Metathesis Evangelion]]'', a fic by an A&T fan aimed squarely at satisfying the need for the OneTrueThreesome, known among A&T as the 'Israfel Special.' With a different order among the {{Kaiju}}, events proceed far differently than in canon. A FixFic that doesn't pull its punches.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent: Kaji, like in canon. He works as inspector for the U.N., he works for Gendo, he works for the Japanese Ministry of the Interior, and at times also against all of those. Recently, he has even begun working for Kaworu in exchange for information. He already has pissed off or will piss off SEELE, Gendo and the JSSDF.
* DramaticDrop : In a chapter of the sidestory ''Life During Wartime'', Kaji let his coffee cup drop when he learns from Kaworu that SEELE had purposefully caused Second Impact. [[DramaticShattering Naturally, the mug shatters upon hitting the ground.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MilitaryMaverick: The only reason Asuka hasn't been fired by NERV yet is that this would cost them the use of EVA-02, a fourth of their fight force.
