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.
    • Advertisement:
    • Gendo obviously is aloof around Shinji, and so far has made no effort to bond with him.
    • Naoko Akagi gives her daughter a scathing "Reason You Suck" Speech, started off with her admitting she never even wanted to marry or have kids. This results in her crying when alone.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Kaworu joins Asuka in Tokyo-3 at the same time as her.
  • Adaptational Origin Connection: The origins of Spidey's powers once again is shared with several of his foes here they are the result of HERZ & SEELE experimenting with Angel DNA
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: The Scorpion is an organic monster instead of a man in a suit like in most continuities.
  • 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.
  • Advertisement:
  • 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.
    • When Naoko speaks poorly of Mayumi after her death, Shinji took major offense to this.
  • 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.
  • Blatant Lies: Shinji can tell that his father's lying about him being selected to pilot the Eva a week ago when he was already called the Third Child months ago by Yamagishi.
  • Boxed Crook: Naoko is forced back into NERV's service after her rampage as Doc Ock. Not that she seems to care...
  • Advertisement:
  • Butt-Monkey: Shinji Ikari is Spider-Man. Of 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.
  • Cloning Blues: In chapter 17, Shinji is lead by Doctor Octopus to go to Terminal Dogma, where he sees the multiple Rei clones. They unsettle him.
  • 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.
  • Creative Sterility: Kaworu feels Shinji is doing this as Spider-Man, pointing out his motives are not his own, and beliefs based on what the dead thought. Shinji later admits he has a point but later admits he wants to still do it to help people. Kaworu accepts his answer.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: According to Shinji, the genius it took for Kitagawa Moya/Mysterio to construct his suit is incredible, and asks him why he became a villain instead of using that intelligence for anything else. Moya answers that he was hoping to get attention and publicity.
  • 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."
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: After Naoko was made into a Boxed Crook, she shows Shinji the scars she got on her back thanks to SEELE. When Shinji shows concern, she tells him this.
  • Doomed Hometown: Shinji's home city of Kokoro thanks to the Holy Goblin. Many of the refugees end up in Tokyo-3 right on time for the Angels to start attacking
  • 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.
  • For Want of a Nail: Naoko releases a computer virus that makes sure that Jet Alone will not be working until well after the Angels are the dead.
  • Fusion Fic: In this story Shinji becomes Spider-Man, a few OC's become his rogues, and Naoko Akagi becomes Doctor Octopus.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: SEELE is this given their plans. Post-Kokoro Arc, there's a mysterious villain who released the Scorpion on Tokyo-3.
  • 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.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Misato did not know Yamashiro died three months before she met Shinji, let alone that Shinji lived in Kokoro. This understandably disturbs her.
  • Meta Guy: As usual, Kaworu remembers the original series, and despite his misgivings of Spider-Man, he's happy Shinji is better at peace now.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Doctor Octopous, natch.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Doctor Octopus' life philosophy.
  • Mythology Gag: Shinji isn't the first Spider to pilot mecha
  • Named by the Adaptation: Takuji Yamashiro is the name of Shinji's guardian in this fic.
  • Never My Fault: Moya Kitagawa, Mysterio, goes into this realizing that he might be wanted for terrorism due to his first fight with Spider-Man.
  • 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.
  • Oh, Crap!!: Shinji is not happy to run into Naoko Akagi again inside NERV HQ
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Naoko Akagi/Doctor Octopus makes it clear to Shinji that only she will be the one to kill him.
  • Parental Abandonment: In chapter 17, Shinji explains to Rei why he cannot truly respect his father.
    Shinji: Ayanami, I don't really know my father. I haven't seen him in years, even the few times we met there was hardly a conversation. As far as I know he left me for his job and never attempted to reach out in the years since. Except for one letter. One. What did it say? Come. Not an apology, no explanation, not even a freaking post card. Like I was some kind of gopher at his beck and call. As a commander, he seems to do an okay job at not getting us all killed. As a person... what can I say about a person I hardly know? If he wanted trust, he should have said something sooner. If he wanted faith, he should have done something to earn it. Now it's too late. Far to late.
  • 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.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Naoko decides to work with Shinji against SEELE, even telling him everything she knows about their plans, and says that they're a much more important threat than he is. Doesn't stop her from admitting she wants to snap his neck.
  • 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.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Doctor Octopus accuses Shinji of this with Rei following Mayumi's death. He denies it, he just wants to know her.
  • 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.
  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: Naoko gives her daughter a scathing one, admitting she only got married and had a daughter out of peer pressure, and is deeply disappointed that all said daughter did was simply copy her mother all the way down to what men she slept with. This shakes Ritsuko to the point of crying when she's alone.
  • 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.
  • Secret Keeper: Touji and Kensuke find out Shinji's secret identity as a Pilot and as Spider-Man.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: Thanks to Yamagishi, Shinji is made aware of HERZ and SEELE and their actions involving Adam and Lilth. Once he sees the Third Angel and Eva-01, he realizes that they must be a result of said actions.
  • Shout-Out: In Chapter 17, after finding out his identity, Kensuke starts asking a ton of questions and how he can help. Straight out of Homecoming.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Naoko Akagi doesn't commit suicide. She becomes Doctor Octopus.
  • The Stations of the Canon: Despite the changes to the Eva timeline here Shinji still answers his father's summons to Tokyo-3...though in this case this is also due to Kokoro's destruction
  • The Stinger: Chapter 13 has one after the Author's Notes where Shinji is on a crowded train heading to Tokyo-3
  • Take That!: Kaworu makes a jab at End of Evangelion, where Shinji masturbates over a comatose Asuka.
  • Theme Tune Cameo: During Chapter 13' stinger Shinji is listening to his SDAT to pass time and decides to listen to Track 1. It happens to be Cruel Angel's Thesis, Evangelion's OP Considering he is listening to it while on the train to Tokyo-3, this counts as Foreshadowing
  • Uncanny Valley: In-Universe. Since Mayumi, Shinji has always been put off by anyone with red eyes. First there was Rei, and now Kaworu.
  • 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.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Shinji can face down supervillains, monsters, and flames of death, but he's still nervous around his father.
  • 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.
  • Worthy Opponent: Doctor Octopus/Naoko Akagi feels this way about Shinji after he saves the train.
