I'm pretty sure I saw the mask with six eyes in Episode XCV of Samurai Jack.

I though it had seven eyes.

Sorry if this is a totally wrong assumption, please feel free to delete the message.

In the 43rd episode of the last Digimon series ("Universe Appli-Monsters") broadcasted last month, the villain's masterplan to turn every human into datas in order to make a superior existence (free of disease, death, etc) was called "Human application project" by the fansub. I wasn't able to discern how it was said in Japanese though.
So, would this be totally accidental?

I've given up on the show pretty early in, but given it's insistence on putting アプリ (apuri - appli) everywhere, I'm pretty sure the subtitles
are correct. I'm sure it's APURI PROJEKUTO or APURI KEIKAKU or something.
I think that the Human Instrumentality Project was itself an Hommage to something from another show, so I wound say Digimon references Eva directly here.
Still, cool catch.

Some Noragami, and pic  SPOILER: Show
The "Borderline" that Yukine produces, is described as a barrier made by his soul, that keeps others out. Sounds a LOT like an AT Field to me.

Also, in Noragami ep. 5, Yukine is in bed with Hiyori.
Image
He then looks at her, and he's about to make his move before he's interrupted. Vaguely similar to Shinji/Asuka's sleeping scene.
Full scene here


More Noragami  SPOILER: Show
The way Bishamon pulls Izanami by her hair towards her in s. 2 ep. 11 (sorry, no image), is remarkably similar to the way Yui-sama pulls Zeruel by his arm. (Complete with Bishamon's hands "catching" the hair-column, it breaking into sections around her fingers, and her making a fist and grasping the broken column.) Almost exactly the same, in fact. Cf: first 2 cuts on this page.

X/1999  SPOILER: Show
Satsuki and Beast have some scenes in episode 21 that are STRONGLY reminiscent of Armisael's attack on Rei (complete with wires entering her skin, and the weird vein-y stuff all over her; and of course, the rape symbolism). Considering Satsuki's powerful resemblance to Rei, I'd say this looks intentional.

(And creepy.)

In "Detroit Metal City" Chapter 60 the antagonist plays on the drum arcade the theme of Evangelion

I believe this is the cover of vol. 70 of Gintama. Pretty blatant, I'd say... (Gintoki's on top of Yui-sama)

I haven't watched all the episodes yet, but Adult Swim's Hot Streets has an Eva reference in it :D

Currently listening to the audiobook for Ready Player One and been waiting for an Eva reference. Be warned that this is a major spoiler towards the end as to who is driving them if you haven't read the book yet.

I dont know if this has been posted here before, but that guy is one giant Rei reference. Blue hair, rarely talks, one of the first pilots, sniper rifle as weapon of choice, second mech is blue and a few other things. that series was also what got me into mecha in the first place, and since the guy was my favorite character probably played a big role in me liking Rei most

While playing Sonic Lost World last night, I noticed that there's an End of Evangelion reference in Desert Ruins 4. During the last phase of the battle with Zomom, the enormous green and orange face mecha made of cubes (which itself could be a Gurren Lagann reference) is lying on the ground, partially buried in the sand, far in the background, with a portion of the left half of it's face missing, and Zomom using the cubes that broke off as walls to trap Sonic and fight him.

Now that I think about it, Sonic Adventure has both Robotnik attempting to enslave and control an evolved, giant form of an ancient creature in the form of Chaos, AND an organically-powered machine becoming self-aware and freeing itself from it's mechanical body in the form of E-102 y.

Shadow the Hedgehog has an ancient, hostile alien species visit the Earth and reveal that they once inhabited it, and intend to destroy it.

Unrelated to Sonic, but just as childish and a guilty pleasure, Sponge out of Water's first act is VERY similar to Evangelion Q. Opens with a massive fight scene, unexplained force causes shit to go south, main character blamed for screwing up the world and subsequently hated by his previous friends, main character runs away and teams up with an enemy and they bond while on a high place at night, looking up at the stars.
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

There's one thing I noticed in Gravity Falls Weirdmeggedon part 1, when Standford fires his Quantuam Destabilizer at Bill he misses and hits his head, bill turns back and without much of warning quickly fires a laser to Standfords surprise, similar to how in 1.0 how Shinji fires at Ramiel intending him to have died, only for him to charge up for his next hit, bill fires a blue laser that hits the building with the way it looks being similar to Ramiel's death, laser passing through the building, with the explosion being delayed and being bigger the farther away it was from the object, doubt its a refernce, but there is that whole meme with it showing 4 images from 2.0 and Weirdmeggedon with the scenes playing out nearly exactly the same, so it could have just been an inspiration, but I thought it was cool to point out
