She's emotionally repressed and prone to oversleeping and getting lost, and is devoted to both her father, an eccentric Lux-maker derided by the professional community, and her childhood friend Ayato Amagiri (the main protagonist). She has an Asuka counterpart in Julis-Alexia von Riessfeld, a ([[KillItWithFire literally]]) FieryRedhead who is the other major competitor in Ayato's BattleHarem.

* Primula of ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}''. A young EmotionlessGirl with very light purple hair and pale skin. In the anime, emotions cause her magical powers to go haywire. In the visual novel they're hoping she can gain emotions to show the program she's part of is a success, putting her into a human environment is part of the program, her magic has little to do with it. In both she is an artificial lifeform.



* Kei Ayamine from ''VisualNovel/MuvLuv'', a short-haired purple eyed [[SugarAndIcePersonality kuudere]]. Bonus points for her name. The only thing that sets her apart from other examples is that she's also quite TheGadfly.

* Jo of ''Anime/BurstAngel''. Dead ringer, aside from a rougher appearance and personality and having a slight tan, making her a bit of a [[DevilMayCry Dante]] expy as well.. She's even referred to as an angel of death. Plus, they both pilot giant mechs. [[spoiler:And they are both {{Artificial Human}}s.]] Plus, Jo hangs around with Meg, who is a bit of an Asuka Langley Soryu Expy.

* Speaking of Fate, there's [[DarkMagicalGirl Fate Testarossa]] from ''Anime/MahouShoujoLyricalNanoha''. A red-eyed stoic, the faithful servant of the BigBad, her mother Precia, [[spoiler:is viciously flogged by said mother, and eventually turns out to be an ArtificialHuman created to replace her ''real'' daughter, Alicia, who died in a tragic accident]].

* Lan from ''Anime/RinneNoLagrange'' is a different take on the archetype. She has all of the characteristics that place her firmly in the category; [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]], pale skin, PurpleEyes, TheStoic, [[NoSocialSkills strange behavior]], [[HumanAlien an alien]], and co-starring in a HumongousMecha series. She's different in that her stoicism doesn't work as well as she tries to and it soon becomes clear she's NotSoStoic. ''[[RunningGag Really]]'' NotSoStoic. She defrosts into more of an average emotional girl sooner than expected. Also, her odd greeting is the result of her being ''lied to'' about Earth culture.

She's a powerful ArtificialHuman [[spoiler:and some kind of clone of the original Dokuro Skull]], has bobbed hair and PurpleEyes. When she's introduced, she's an EmotionlessGirl, but thanks to the main character she warms up and becomes very upbeat.

* Cheza from ''Manga/WolfsRain''. She looks like Rei Ayanami with pink hair. Being half-plant qualifies her as not fully human. She's also quite emotionless, although she does perk up quite a bit in the presence of wolves.

* ''Film/PacificRim'' gives us Mako Mori. While being older, having a rather more well-adjusted and sociable personality and there's nothing artificial about her origin, she's the only Japanese character in the film, is [[TheStoic stoic and reserved]], fiercely loyal to her adoptive father figure, and sports Rei's haircut as said above. It's even colored blue, though only at the tips. She also happens to be a HumongousMecha pilot. Popular fan consensus is that it's supposed to say, "We took -some- inspiration from Evangelion but didn't try to ape it".
** Explicitly invoked in the Japanese dub. Instead of having Creator/RinkoKikuchi dub her own lines over in Japanese (which she would be perfectly capable of doing), Mako is voiced by the same person responsible for Rei - Music/MegumiHayashibara. You can't get to be a bigger Expy than that!

* Despite being quite outgoing and sociable, the titular character of ''WesternAnimation/GetEd'' bears many hallmarks of this trope, from eyes which glow red when he is angered, the blue color scheme of his suit and the fact that he was [[spoiler: genetically engineered by Ol'Skool from an ancient artifact]]. He is also plagued by 'visions', a lack of knowledge of the outside world and strong desire to know about his past.
** Sadly, due to the creator of the series passing away we never fully see the resolution to this.

* Io from ''VideoGame/CodeVein''. She not only has the pale skin, bobcut, and is a [[TheStoic stoic]] MysteriousWaif ArtificialHuman (among many clones) to boot, but over the course of the story, Io develops feelings for the beyond obeying the orders of the Successors. She was created by Cruz only to absorb the relics (pieces of Cruz's body) similar to how Rei was created from Lilith's DNA, only to absorb her too. Her fate in the three endings also reference The End of Evangelion as well; her body [[TakenForGranite is petrified]] in ''To Eternity'', [[NoBodyLeftBehind she disintegrates and crumbles]] in ''Heirs'', and finally, she absorbs legendary relics to form a sacred tree and AscendsToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, though maintains a notable presence to the protagonist in ''Dwellers in The Dark''. For bonus points, she shares an English voice actress with Rei from the Rebuild of Evangelion continuity as well - Brina Palencia!
