Would the Evangelion units 00-04 count towards this trope? At the end of the series they're even set upon by the mass produced versions, after all.

00 and 01 are prototypes, while 02, 03, and 04 are production models. Nothing about them said they were ace customs, even though "prototype" and "production" would have still revealed how they were built the way they were throughout Evangelion.

Seeing this cited on a work page as "everyone in this movie has an Ace Custom" - is this possible? Everyone in the movie does have a unique vehicle customized to the user, but does it count as Ace Custom if ' if custom gear is not limited to The Ace?

"everyone in this movie has an Ace Custom" is not good example writing, so it should not be written like that.

Well, it's not written exactly like that, that's a paraphrase. It's written more like "Almost everyone in the movie, even background characters, has a unique, pimped-out ride custom-made for their particular skills." The real question is, does it still count as Ace Custom if custom gear is not limited to Ace Pilots?

So I'm seeing a lot of examples that are not so much "custom" as "designed from the ground up as new machines for an ace" which seems more akin to a Super Prototype (what's the Nu Gundam a custom version of, anyway?). But the description describes an Ace Custom as a normal model that's been tweaked for higher performance.

So yeah. Is this trope "high performance machine used by an ace" or is it "enhanced version of an existing machine used by an ace"?

Based on the page description, it seems like both are legitimate.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
