My personal favourite is Arael, as I love the design and the entire battle surrounding it. It's one of the major reasons episode 22 is also my favourite episode, due to the effects Arael has on Asuka.

While Sachiel remains the moest of all angels, I particularly liked Ramiel and her modus operandi. Even if her use of a DRILL rather than a fuck-off laser to dig into the geofront makes me scratch my head.

Honorable mention to the MP Evas, who had the trollface face before there was such a thing.

RAMIEL, YOURS IS THE DRILL THAT SHALL PIERCE THE GEOFRONT!!!

And so it was, as Kamina foretold.

All funniness aside, if it wasn't for the fact that NGE was broadcast many years before TTGL, I would say that Ramiel is an homage to the show.

The only reason why I can't stand Ramiel is because Gainax made a huge mistake with [s]his[/s] [s]her[/s] its drill, and since I noticed it, I've been unable to disregard it.

But RoE's Ramiel is damn badass, even if he's a little TOO different from the original, in my modest opinion.

What was the mistake? The direction the drill is rotating?

It's rotating the wrong way, yes.

The redesigns of Ramiel, Sahaquiel and Zeruel in Rebuild/NTE are brilliant. Seriously. The team outdid themselves, IMO. Really looking forward to what they have in-store for Q/3.0.

In NGE though, my favourites were always Israfel (For a more conventional enemy - I love the synced fight scene!) and Leliel.

Sachiel.
His face is cute. I like the contrast between this sweet face of him and the rest of his body.
It looked like he would never attacked if people had left in peace in the first place. Go start your 3I my dear.

Then, Bardiel as Eva-03 and Adam who seems to be shaped like a standard Eva.

Totally Ramiel. He doesn't go and start blowing everything up. His mission is to dig into NERV, and he only attacks in defense. And boy does he attack. Also his design is so simple yet so scary.

It might be a cliche answer but: Kaworu. He's just so beautiful in so many ways.

He has a great taste in music. Maybe if he didn't die he would have lead the life of a conductor.

Actually OP excluded him exactly because he would be an obvious choice. Besides Kaworu I would probably pick Leliel, because of the pseudo quantum physics stuff.

I know. But he still would be a great conductor.

He would probably be satisfied with a quatre mains with Shinji ;-)

Definitely Ramiel, particularly NME Ramiel. Zeruel's a close second (either version).

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Ah, i didn't know Kaworu was excluded.

In that case, Sachiel. I don't know why, but he often struck me as the best looking angel.

Arael's a close second as well.

Zeruel for me.

A) It is absolutely badass in the way it just man(angel?)handles Unit 02, cleverly survives against Unit 00 sacrificial attack and whoops pre-berserk 01.

B) Was very important to the plot with Unit 01 consuming the Super Solenoid engine allowing it to rise to a god-like status.

C) Leaves a mark on all the characters especially Asuka who was once again defeated by an angel which screws up her self-esteem and confidence, and Shinji who accepts his responsibility as a pilot of the Eva who needs to succeed in order to save humanity from being destroyed.

D) The Berserk Eva 01 eating the angel was a real big impact scene. Was shocking as well as awesome.

E) It has toilet paper arms.

Kaworu. He's my favorite character at all and the idea of an Angel showing up in human form... it struck me as totally random/surreal when I first watched it.


But aside from him, Ramiel or Leliel, I guess. Sucker for eldritch geometries.

Armisael was also interesting since we got some more insight and personality there.
