* AndIMustScream: The visions people suffer from as they're reduced to LCL are hellish and under SEELE's plans they'll be left in this state forever while the villains deify themselves.
* BigBad: Keel Lorenz, as in the show, is the seldom seen villain but nevertheless Gendō's boss and the one overseeing the Human Instrumentality Plan.



* DoingInTheWizard: The Classified Information does this to different degrees quite a few concepts which the TV series left more ambiguous in nature, as it traces the supernatural events and artefacts of the show back to the hyper-advanced scientific works of SufficientlyAdvancedAlien {{Precursors}} (the show at most just vaguely alluded to some sort of {{Ultraterrestrials}} being at work). Most notably, it is clarified that the Secret Dead Sea Scrolls are not some kind of divine prophecy, but rather a instruction manual on how the different Seeds of Life work.

* DownerEnding: Depending on the results the player gets it's possible for SEELE to complete Instrumentality as per their designs, leaving everyone else powerless for them to rule over as gods.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: As usual Gendō works under SEELE but only so far as their goals align and he betrays them as soon as he gets the chance to begin his own Impact scenario.


* EasterEgg: The Classified Information includes data about a mysterious spaceship found underwater in the Ogasawara islands. This is a reference to Gainax's previous success ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfTheBlueWater'', where the heroes escaped the final battle in a spaceship they later scuttled in that very place. In fact, ''Nadia'' and ''Evangelion'' were originally conceived as taking place in the same continuity before Gainax found they could not secure the rights to the former.

The later part is has caused some controversy in fan circles, as it raises the question of how involved ''Evangelion''[='s=] creator, Creator/HideakiAnno, was with the development of the game, and how true to the show's canon the Classified Information should be seen as. According to all official sources, Anno was interviewed "extensively" by the developers and consulted on the game, and the developers also insist that, lore-wise, everything stated in the game should be accurate to Anno's instructions. Anno himself has remained vague on the matter, merely saying that all the information need to understand the story is included within the show, and no additional material is needed.

* DirtyOldMan: One of the games most infamous scenes from the game is a comedic substory, wherein Fuyutsuki convinces Shinji to dress up as his mother, Yui, much to Shinji's discomfort, and takes pictures of him, when he finds that [[WholesomeCrossdresser Shinji really does resemble his mother quite a bit]]. It undeniably paints Fuyutsuki as [[AdaptationalJerkass quite a bit more of a pervert than in the show]].
