Is the Spear of Longinus part of an angel or an angel itself ? "the thing that came from space" had arms like the spear, and in the flashback to second impact you see two spears this time around.


EDIT by REICHU: Spear of Cassius' name revealed starting here.

The thing that came from Kaworu looked like this:

There were 4 spears during the 2nd Impact flashback, I'd assume, one for each of the things with halos.

If the Spears haven't changed from the TV Series version (which is highly unlikely), then they're just security devices to keep Seeds of Life from shirking their duties or keeping gods in check.

But we dont know lol.

Reichu Translation of the Classified Information wrote:C. Confidential Information

It is a spear which has a will and is a type of lifeform capable of moving by itself. This is an item close to a god and thus able to put a Seed of Life (Progenitor Entity), who holds the power of eternal life, into suspended animation, and this is the reason why the Seed of Life (Progenitor Entity) does not reach god-status. The First Ancestral Race prepared this as a counter- measure in the event that a Seed of Life (Progenitor Entity) did not follow their own goals.

It is thought that a Spear acting as Lilith's counterpart was separated from it by the shock at the time of First Impact. This Spear has yet to be found. There is a chance that it may have been destroyed.

It is possible that the nature of the lance in Rebuild has changed. It might not be unreasonable to assume that it could have angelic origins.

Semi-on-topic: Does anyone else perfer the Rebuild lance to the original? It just looks more like a real weapon than the previous incarnation?.

Wow. This spear is starting to STRONGLY resemble the real Spear of Fuchai. I did wonder from time to time if that spear was the beginning of the design process for the Original Spear of Longinus. Well, that and DNA as others already cite.

We never get a good look at the spear Kaworu skewers Unit 01 with in the camrip. Fortunately, we have this toy-- erm, adult collectible.

It, ah... looks like a wand from a magical girl anime. Definitely doesn't look like NGE's Spear of Longinus, in any case.

We've also already seen a bunch of spears that look just like NGE's Spear of Longinus. I'm not saying with certainty that this isn't THAT spear, of course.

I am. I took it from a site Fuyutsuki linked to in the IRC. It was alongside a bunch of other figures that I know to be official.

The action figure is just a rip-off of the illustration on the front of the 2.0 movie booklet anyway.

In other words: old news. Also, this thread is gonna get merged. I know you put a lot of effort into that title, NAW. Sorry.

I'm sure you know why, :wink: Oneesan said a statue of a nun being speared by an angel was one of the more interesting Baroch art pieces...I'm sure you can guess the significance that comes with being penetrated by something devine :shinji_blush: I can tell you that there's already a huge amount of fanart on that scene by now.I wonder if this means that It constitutes K/S/R/Y?
