Eva character heights

The height of the Evangelions is the subject of much debate. Much TIRED debate. Recently I've been wondering about the heights of the pilots. As we briefly see on her ID card, Misato is about 5'4". This, while slightly above average for Japanese women, isn't very tall. Throughout the show, it appears that she towers over Shinji. This would make Shinji almost comically short, like 5'0" or 4'11". The only mention of his height I remember is in Angelic Days when Asuka gives him a hard time about it, and even then there aren't any specifics.

Asuka seems to be slightly taller than Shinji and Rei appears to be around the same height. Are any of their heights ever revealed in any Eva media?

No. Although there was a picture with all the NGE cast lined up, and I think Reichu did a pixel count of each of the characters and based on Misato's known height, did a fraction cross multiplication dealio to find the other character's heights.

Aida Kensuke - 145.25 (4'9")
Ayanami Rei - 143 (4'8")
Pen-Pen - 61.5 (2')

Just by going by this one picture I have, Mayumi is Touji's height. And while I'm at it, Mana is perhaps 146cm.

Oh, that's great! Thank you.

I guess it will be a few years until Shinji is able to take down his old man in a fight.

I ought to double-check those results sometime when I feel like I have nothing better to do.

Does that list Tines posted figure in my revised height for Yui? (Posted in one of them threads.) First time I calculated it, I didn't take her high heels into account. -_-;

It's copy-pasta'd from a quote block near the top of one of the threads, so may well not.

It doesn't seem like the shortness is exclusive to the Japanese characters, Keel Lorentz is only 5'3". Asuka is only 4'11", but maybe that's just that 25% Japanese heritage coming out. At any rate, it looks like Rei will eventually have to invest in some pumps...

I find those heights to be somewhat dubious. I mean, Shinji, a 14 year old boy only 4'10"? Give me a break. This is most likely a case of the characters being as tall as necessary to fit into a certain scene or "camera angle." I imagine their heights are about as consistent as the heights of the Evas.

They probably don't have real heights, 4'10 is not realistic at all for a 14 year old, seriously.

We can't trust any official GAINAX info for heights anyway, an EVA unit can go from towering over the city to climbing up a building 3 times it's size.

You mean they'll shrink and grow depending on their surroundings, but maintain the same ratios relative to one another? :?

Unless somebody obsessively demonstrates this is true by comparing the characters to objects of "known height" (aside from Misato, who apparently doesn't count...), I'll just give the show the benefit of the doubt here.
