Uh... when did Eva 04 ever fight anything? As far as I know it dirac sea'd on activation in both continuities.

Anyhow:

Asuka VS. MP Evas
Ramiel fight in 1.0
Gaghiel fight
Eva Mk. 06 descending from the moon in 2.0
The smiling Rei scene at the end of the Ramiel fight

Wasn't there some non-can thing when Kaworu is controlling Unit-04 equipped with a shield and Lance of Longinus? I've seen it on YouTube I swear, but I don't know what it was for.

No Order-
3.0 Space Battle
2.0 End Battle w/ Zeruel(Whole thing)
Manga Shinji vs MPEs
EOE Asuka vs MPEs
Shinji vs Kaworu/Unit-02

Edit- Found it!

That's a non-canon video clip from a Japan-only Evangelion pachinko game, it even says that in the comments. I've seen screenshots from it before. And the Ramiel battle was in 1.11, not 2.22. Also Unit 04 was using the Lance of Longinus there, which is a one-of-a-kind weapon that NERV has locked up in Terminal Dogma (where Lilith is). If Kaworu had access to Lilith that early, he would have just completed his mission and caused Third Impact instead of fighting Ramiel.

The Pachinko games have a lot of really neat action sequences and what-ifs, like Mari making orbit during Operation US, Unit 05 being under Misato's command in Tokyo 3 and fighting the 4th-9th Angels, and I've seen one from Q with Unit 02' fighting the 12th Angel in some kind of rocky desert.

My favorites are definitely the bonus sequences with the Mark.06. It one-shots every Angel with the Spear of Cassius, but that's still more screen time than it had in the movies and it looks cool as heck doing it! :tongue:

But for my top 5 favorite moments from the canon stuff:
1. Shinji/Asuka/Rei vs. Rebuild Sahaquiel. Fate plays a big role in this.
2. Shinji & Asuka vs. Israfel
3. Unit 01's Awakening - both versions for different reasons
4. Asuka vs. Clockiel
5. Asuka/Mari vs. Eva 13 and 09. Again, music plays a big part in this. It Will Mean Victory is a spectacular song

Special mention: The Wunder's assault on Eva 13

Not necessarily true in the setting of the new movies. We have no idea what his mission, if any, was there.

Personally, I like these what-ifs. They're neat to look at, and getting another take on the setting with professional-quality footage is quite a treat. They're worth hunting down IMO.

Hey, you're right. I just remembered that at the end of 2.22 he descended from the moon specifically to stop Third Impact, and in general he seems a lot more focused on Shinji than he was in NGE. Kinda weird considering what Kaworu is, but then again there's so much unexplained stuff in the rebuild. I honestly wouldn't mind if they made another movie after Final that took place during the 14-year gap, maybe focusing on the split within NERV and the founding of WILLE.

It's pretty cool that each of the pilots gets their own win scenario, and with a teamwork scenario thrown in as well! Nice! But it looks like, if you lose, Kaworu shows up and cleans up your mess. Boo to that.

I was thinking of actually explaining why these are my top five, but then I realized that I would ramble on too long and the post would never happen.

- #02: Eva-01 vs. Sachiel
- #18: Eva-01 vs. Eva-03/Bardiel [2.22 version is fine, too]
- #19: Eva-01 vs. Zeruel
- #24: "Ode to Joy" sequence
- #25': Team Soryu vs. Harpy Bitches (II Air & Munashiki Nagare)

I'm sticking to original series on account of these scenes having affected me fifteen years ago when I was still moderately young and impressionable. This shit is planted deep in my psyche, yo. The new movies have some impressive sequences, but they will never captivate me on the same level, never touch me as deeply.

I was gonna write a list for this thread, but I realized that:

1. I don't do lists. (Not even favorite movie lists.)

2. This list doesn't count.

3. All 5 spots would be taken up by the Zerul/10th NTE Angel battle anyway, because the awesomeness of that battle consumes me every time I think of Eva battles in general.

4. The tones, moods, and themes in Eva battles are way too eclectic in order for me to not think that I'm comparing apples to oranges every time I select more than one Eva battle to think about.

5. Asuka's Final Battle would be in that list somewhere if I were to write it despite the entire list being consumed by Zerul/10th NTE Angel battle, simply because Asuka fighting giant, monstrous, hollowed-out humanoids being manipulated by the remnants of Kaworu's deceased conciseness is way too fucked up to not list somewhere.
PM me if you want specific spoilers for Shin Eva 3.0+1.0, but don't want the whole movie spoiled for you!

Every moment in 2.0 pretty much :|

- The rush of the 3 Evas to catch Sahaquiel/8th, because Destiny ffs.

- When DummyEva-01 rekts the third one with Asuka in it. Because this scene mixed with Kyou no hi wa sayounara makes me emotional.

- The arrival of the 10th/Zeruel, because In my spirit is the best them ever. Rei running towards it is also pretty good.

- Shinji saving Rei, because Tsubasa wo kudasai makes me so damn emotional.

- The final scene of EoE (kinda final I guess), because Komm susser tod is a masterpiece. And it makes me emotional.

And nope, the soundtrack doesn't influence how I appreciate a show.

Imagine. You’re driving home, you’re in a forest and the road is straight. You can easily see the skyline. Night is almost upon you yet you feel the sun behind the clouds. The sky gets darker and darker as the cumulonimbus spread shadow across the land. Rain drops lightly it seems as though they’re announcing the venue of something greater. All the way down the horizon you see a storm forming. You keep driving, the clouds doesn’t scare you yet you worry. You should. The tempest is fully formed, now the song is midway and you see light, white light illuminating the vale. The lightings are close even though the thunder remains quiet to your ear.
