Hello! Just registered, LOOOONG time lurker. So in 3.0, there's 3 times where some weird sound happens in 3.0. First, is when Angel 12 starts roaring after pulling the spears, and you can hear Mark.06 repeating SOMETHING until Rei chops it's head off and it keeps repeating over and over. It keeps saying the same thing up until that point. Mari later, when she jumps at Unit-13 her Evangelion Unit-08 "roars" but it sounds like slowed down vocals. And when Unit-13, "starts the ritual" right before Fourth Impact, the high-pitched "singing" sound? I think it's SOMETHING.

You're probably looking at Eva's long, valiant history of using stock sound effects. (Even one time when we thought we'd found significant backward dialogue in 2.0, it turned out to just be something from a sound effect bank.)

Wait, the backward quoting from the Dummy System activation was just a fluke?

Seriously, that is the most fananked theory I've ever heard, more than Mari being Marty McFly travelling through time to keep her parents (Asushin) together. -- Jäeger

It seems so, yeah.

I've mentioned this in the past and had it dismissed by a member, but I'll bring up my key points again:

I'm aware that there is plenty of recycled sound bytes in Eva but that is not necessarily the point of what I'm going into. At all 3 points where there was the "scream", we were witnessing foreign technology in the Eva series.
  • 13 activates
  • Angel that Wunder later destroys burns through a Wunder ship
  • Asuka is attacked by tesseract defense system

There are some other similarities as well: all 3 events were mentioned to have some sort of light-related property to them(again, back to the foreign technology point) and all 3 events had a sort of trigger in them:
  • 13 activates after a whole slew of unexplained events. However, 13's hidden arms burst through it's chest armor when Mari fires special AT-field rounds, which 13 for some reason absorbs(to her surprise, 13 simply does not have an ATF). This is an important trigger, because without 13's other 2 limbs, it would not have removed the Spears from Lilith.
  • When the Wunder activates, the Angel changes it's attack patterns. It's a reaction.
  • Tesseract Shinji eliminates the tesseract's defense system upon hearing Asuka scream

They all follow the colour scheme too.

Well, that "scream" is the sound effect Khara chose for "weird neo-NERV/SEELE tech in action", that's all.

... again, I am not stating that the sound effects are, individually, of any interest, but the fact that the same 3 sound effects are paired together, during the functioning of important technology not adequately explained to the viewers, might be of interest.

I figured out one of the weird sounds! When Unit-13 flies through the pole and floats above the pyramid, it cuts to Shinji saying whats going on, then you see Unit-13 as a star and a weird screeching sound is heard. Probably a recycled sound byte, but that screeching sound sounds like the exact sound used in Persona 5 for the train screeching to a halt

That screech is from Ramiel’s attack sound effects from Eva Jo, which was also reused from a space monster screech in DieBuster.
