Agreed though I could only imagine what a MP Eva is capable of with a real pilot and soul?? More or less terrifying?
Why in God's name would I wanna keep writing about characters whose central preoccupation are weed and dick and fart jokes? I mean, ya gotta grow man. Don't you ever want anything more for yourself? I know this poor hapless son of a bitch does. I look into his sorry doe eyes and I just, I see a man crying out. He's crying out, "When Lord? When the fuck can your servant ditch this foul-mouthed little chucklehead to whom I am a constant victim of his folly, so much so that it prevents him from ever getting to kiss a girl! Fuck! When, Lord when? WHENS GONNA BE MY TIME?

Ritsuko is just the head of the eva and Maji maintanence department. Her mom made the maji, Yui designed 00 and 01, the rest of the evas were designed and developed elsewhere.

I don't really understand why they bothered with the Kaworu plugs in the first place though. Surely killing a dozen or so mothers and then brainwashing/training the orphans they leave behind wouldn't be at all difficult for them to manage. Then again, I suppose the training part can be left out and the pilots and cores collected shortly before they were needed if the dummy exists... just toss moms in cores, strap sedated kids in chairs to fool them, then let the dummy plugs go to town.

The MP Evangelions' outward appearance bears no resemblance to the former, now technologically obsolete Evangelions, and Ritsuko didn't work on the artificial S2 organs or the dummy plugs.

All I am suggesting is that nobody was able to create an Evangelion unless they referred back to the original Project-E files (or something along those lines), in which Ritsuko is deeply related.


As every NERV branch has a copy of those files, safely stored in their MAGI systems, Ritsuko is a fifth wheel.

Given Seele's nonchalant attitude towards human life I wouldn't put it past them by doing something like that lol. Sarcasm aside they wanted to start 3I right away not enough time to pull some shit like that.

But back on topic I seriously doubt Seele had the time to give contact experiments to all 9 eva's especially when 3 more were originally planned but were scrapped because of them wanting to start 3I as soon as possible. Artificial soul or something akin to that seems more plausible.

As a human pilot posses a moral faculty, he would be less efficient to carry out their orders. I doubt human pilots would be so quick in neutralizing Asuka and arranging Instrumentality.

Agreed which brought on the necessity to have the Kaworu dummy plugs. Which has to be assumed is more advanced than the Rei's otherwise why not just use the Rei dummy plugs??

Never said the outward appearance was what was based.

As every NERV branch has a copy of those files, safely stored in their MAGI systems, Ritsuko is a fifth wheel.

Never said she had to be of a direct involvement.

What I got from your original post was that the other scientists were able to build an Eva without any involvement whatsoever from Dr. Ritsuko Akagi. I am simply pointing out that Dr. Ritsuko Akagi is the leading mind behind the revolutionary technology, that is the Eva, during the time line of the show, and that anything to do with building an Eva in some way leads back to her work on it, which invariably relates back to her mother and those on Project-E.

The Japanese NERV branch received the dummy plug as a softwareless hardware. What they had to do is to fill it with mental content required for pilot emulation. Of the pilots at disposal, Rei, of course, is the most compliant and discreet for such a operation, though equally, it could've been Asuka or Shinji. SEELE didn't have a Rei dummy plug because Rei was not to their disposal nor she was necessary. They had Kaworu for it.

Does Anno or anybody behind development of EoE discuss this soul issue for the MP Eva's? Also is it ever stated how there able to regenerate??

S2 engines allow them to keep going after brutal damage.

This, and the fact that they went berserk, which, as we've seen with Unit-01, allows the Eva to keep going, even after expending its power. Mix this with the fact Asuka didn't take out any of their cores, and you've got yourself a perfect situation for a mass produced frenzy of berserk Evas.

Altough they never actually bothered to regenerate....The only angel that way able to regenerate was Sachiel if Im thinking straight and he was slow as hell. At the time, it didn't even have an S2 engine and Unit 01 had speedy ass regeneration...sooo, is that due to direct adam cloning?

You're forgetting Israfel. I'm sure each and every Angel had the ability to regenerate itself, but time is necessary, as with all sorts of wounds.

The MPE's never actually regenerated, they simply got back up.

The don't appear berserk to me. Because this was their first deployment, Asuka had an easy time with them, but as soon they received direct orders, they activated their full operational capacity.

Though they may not be showing the same characteristics that Unit-01 shows when berserk (i.e., roar, charge, eat), this does not dismiss that fact that the Eva Series also went berserk. The best explanation for the phenomenon of berserk Evas is that, simply, the Eva reactivates itself without outside influence, power, or control from a pilot or Dummy Plug. Unit-01 protecting Shinji with its arm may be explained by a momentary berserker phase. Though the Eva Series were working toward a similar goal, I doubt they were being directly ordered to get back up and tear Unit-02 apart due to the extreme damage having already been taken. The Eva Series was probably acting according to their own natures, which soon lead to them participating in Third Impact. Beneficial to Seele? Yes. Orchestrated by Seele? I doubt it.

No the MP Eva's didn't go berserk they just chomped on Eva-02 as there attack. We have seen dummy plugs attack and eat other objects before, remember Bardiel??

And can we get back on topic

I remember no such eating involving Bardiel. I think you are confused. Furthermore, did you read my entire post? I didn't use the MPE's eating Unit-02 as evidence of them going berserk.

As for the topic: 9 random chicks.

Creating false soul substitutes is impossible according to Evaverse metaphysics. And the MP Evas have AT Fields, which require souls.

Well my statement was more directed towards Rebuild..........but anyhow..............

I didn't know where there's a guide to the Eva world of meta physics? link? otherwise like i stated given the countless amounts of crazy ass shit that happens in Eva creating a ghost in the shell or a false one I would have to assume is with in the realm of possibility
