"Though the world may mock Shinji ikari, the timid teenager… it will soon marvel at the awesome might of Spider-Man!"

Shinji Ikari: The Amazing Spider-Man by GainaxVel3o is a crossover between Neon Genesis Evangelion and Spider-Man. It follows Shinji Ikari's life from before and after arriving in Tokyo-3 after being bitten by a radioactive spider.


  • Abusive Parent: Tachiageru Yamagishi talks about Mayumi like she's a thing than a person. He even allowed his daughter to die. Makes sense given he's the Holy Goblin.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Professor Inumaru lost his leg during Second Impact.
  • Ax-Crazy: Several of Spider-Man's enemies: Like Vulture, Doctor Octopus, and Holy Goblin.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: The SHOCKER gauntlets are indeed impressive, but there are several flaws, such as the price to make them.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Yashida doesn't like people snooping around in his personal things. He killed a nosy guard who saw a picture of him and his brother when they were kids.
    • Naoko Akagi doesn't like to be called an Old Hag.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Downplayed with Tsuyoshi Kotei, the Flash Thompson Expy. To most people he's a widely popular student, to Shinji he's a rival and bully.
  • Butt-Monkey: Shinji Ikari is Spider-Man. Off course he's going to be this.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Shinji calls out his teacher for how distant he is. The man listens to him and truly bonds with him. Needless to say the man becomes an Uncle Ben Expy and dies.

  • Comes Great Responsibility: Shinji as Spider-Man naturally.
  • Composite Character:
    • Shinji becomes Spider-Man, and Naoko Akagi becomes Doctor Octopus.
    • Kiyoshi Amachi as the Vulture takes on a criminal background from Black Drago, and I Am A Humanitarian tendencies from the Red Vulture.
    • Mayumi is Harry Osborn meets Gwen Stacy meets Rei Ayanami.
  • The Conspiracy: When Shinji finds out Professor Inumaru was working with someone on the spider, he asks who they are. It's HERZ and SEELE.
    Professor Inumaru: I can't tell you.
  • Designer Baby: Tachiageru Yamagishi reveals to Shinji that he wanted a child, but found no woman he could really connect with, so he had Mayumi designed with women "He never bothered knowing the name of." Hearing this said so casually disturbs both Shinji and Mayumi. Turns out the mother is an Angel.
  • Disappointed by the Motive: Shinji is livid with the Rhino who did the terrible things because he wanted to be a "big shot."

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Yashida loves his brother dearly. When he learns he was murdered, he becomes the Silver Samurai.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Yamagishi does not hide his disdain for Instrumentality.
    Yamagishi: The old men disgust me...They think they have God's creatures under control. That the scenario they constructed will lead them to Heaven. What foolish piece of work man is...They do not understand.
    Yamagishi: Ruined? I gave them purpose! You were but a weak willed child before the spider made you who you are! My daughter wouldn't even exist without me! Amid the sands of time and fate all people's lives are without meaning! SEELE understands that mankind is at an evolutionary dead end. It is the reason behind their scenario! But the old men made a crucial mistake...They believe Instrumentality will lead to the ultimate salvation of mankind...But they were WRONG! Mankind disrupted the cycle of life by stabbing Adam with the Lance of Longinus. The end of humanity is coming, and the Angels will see to it's destruction. SEELE dare plan to encase themselves in immortal bodies so they could control the destiny of the world through instrumentality...But they will fall all the same!
  • Everyone Has Standards: Anyone who meets the Vulture is greatly disturbed by his I Am A Humanitarian tendencies.
  • Expy: Quite a few Original Characters were designed to invoke Spider-Man characters.
  • Foil: Yamagishi is Gendo Ikari, but WAY worse. For example, while Gendo may be distant, it's clear that he cares for Shinji (In his own, messed up way). Yamagishi didn't give a damn about his daughter.
  • Fusion Fic: In this story Shinji becomes Spider-Man, a few OC's become his rogues, and Naoko Akagi becomes Doctor Octopus.
  • Guile Hero: True to Spider-Man standards, Shinji proves capable of tricking his opponents with jokes and quips.
  • Guilt Complex: After Yamashiro's death Shinji starts blaming himself for every little thing.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Mayumi is a human/angel hybrid not unlike Rei and Kaworu. However, she's biologically unstable.
  • He Knows Too Much: The reason why The Conspiracy wants to get rid of Naoko Akagi.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Spider-Man. Period.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: The Vulture's been eating people since he was 7 years old.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: This naturally comes up given it has to do with Spider-Man. Sadly, nobody could've predicted Mayumi.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: The Rhino just wants to be a big shot.
  • It's All About Me: When Shinji found out Mayumi was meant to spy on him for her father, he gave her the cold shoulder. Kotei confronts him and points out to him that doing this is really selfish.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • Kotei may be a punk to Shinji, but that doesn't mean he knows how to be a nice guy.
    • Professor Inumaru may be against Shinji being Spider-Man, but that doesn't mean he won't help him.
  • Karmic Death: Yamagishi, as the Holy Goblin, gets killed by his own statue of David and Goliath, by Shinji and his daughter. But then again, this is a Goblin we're talking about.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Doctor Octopus' life philosophy.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Takuji Yamashiro is the name of Shinji's guardian in this fic.
  • Nothing Is the Same Anymore: Chapter 13 ends with Kokoro so throughly wrecked that people just outright abandon it. Kotei is missing, Mayumi is dead, every OC is a supervillain who will die or go insane at some point...Oh, and Shinji gets a letter from his father.
    Gendo Ikari: COME.
  • Not So Similar: The Rhino tries to say that Spider-Man put on a costume to be a big shot like him. But it's obvious the reasoning is different, and he socks him for it.
  • Parents as People: Yamashiro did what he thought was best for Shinji. But since he has trouble expressing emotion, Shinji grew up thinking he never cared. The two had just gotten to a point where they were finally bonding when the burglar killed him.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Naoko Akagi is publicly humiliated by a crowd who call her "Old Hag" or insult her decision to sleep with her boss. This leads to the creation of Doctor Octopus.
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: Mayumi throwing a cup at him made the Vulture livid.
  • Reality Ensues: Doctor Octopus points out that Professor Inumaru taking the Spider to the school he teaches at was a negligible decision at best. So for whatever reason it was there, it was not there for professional reasons.
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: In this universe, the Yashida family from Wolverine are more closely associated with battling a now Japanese Spider-Man.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Sandman is Sandwoman!
  • Satanic Archetype: Yamagishi turns himself into "Satan, the Angel of Temptation." In other words, the Holy Goblin.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Naoko Akagi doesn't commit suicide. She becomes Doctor Octopus.
  • Villain Respect: Doctor Octopus has this for Spider-Man. It's the only reason she hasn't revealed his true identity.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: The Yashida Company helped build Kokoro, so they are not looked at as the source of the cities supervillains.
  • Wham Line: When Professor Inumaru is kidnapped, he's brought face to face with the Big Bad of the Kokoro Arc. And reveals his name in bold.
    Professor Inumaru: Yamagishi.
