Best Neon Genesis Evangelion Characters

The Top Ten

1 Rei Ayanami Rei Ayanami is a fictional character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. She is the First Child (First Children in the Japanese version), pilot of the Evangelion Unit-00 and one of the female main characters.

Rei is the smartest and least out lashing, and a professional in the field of Evangelions. Unit 00 is a marvel to behold, the most emotions in Evangeline to sight. Rei is sweet but performs perfectly. Rei Ayanami seems neutral to the rest of the characters and just does the job assigned. Reading is something Rei has no problems with as well. A very interesting and richest of characters in the Evangeline Saga. Awesome! Also there are different version of Rei unit from Subspace Base Red and Yellow to the best recital Blue and Black have ever seen with a sibling performing. White and Black or perhaps Grey too can also be seen in Unit 00, plus a Spear that can go to Space through anything and at times a Shield appearing as a Spartan in sight when the Unit 00 of Rei is in sight. Amazed, very fond of Rei Ayanami!

Rei Ayanami is intelligent, can perform as well as read casual. Rei has 2 main Evangelion versions, a base from subspace medal yellow and red. Plus a black and blue similar to a sibling piano recital background at the show. Unit 00 has more than 5 powerful weapons and are at Rei disposal. Also can seem as a hoplite with the helmet, spear and shield. Unlike the emotion display by Unit 00 at times and communication difficulty, Rei is not such as that. Amazing Evangelion!

Rei is perfect, she is cute, cool, and she has godlike ability!

Rei is by far the best character, insofar we're referring to the original Rei Ayanami.

Unfortunately, later "remakes" and "reboots" have been downard insulting in it's portrayal of the character. It definitely deserves so much more.

2 Misato Katsuragi Misato Katsuragi is a fictional character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise created by Gainax.

Of the main cast, Misato is shown to be one of the kindest and caring people. Does she have flaws? Yes. Does her hatred of the Angels sometimes bog her down and cause her to make mistakes? Absolutely. But at the end of the day, she does genuinely care about those around her, and feels the most like a real person to me.

She is amazing! I love her personality and I think she's a realistic character.

She is so cool.

Rei is boring. Go Misato!

3 Asuka Langley Soryu

In my opinion one the best and most relateable character

Plus she has an upbeat and positiv personality

Asuka dealt with so many problems as a child. Seeing her mother go crazy and even seeing her mothers dead body. Even though asuka can be quite mean she pulled through everything and hid her true personality. Asuka is a awesome character and my favorite from the series.

Easily the most complex likeable, with a personality unlike that brick named Rei.

Asuka is so pretty, funny, and a bad-butt!

4 Kaworu Nagisa

Everyone has their own reason for liking Kaworu. Some worse than others...
(Yaoi intensifies)

He is kind and cutie


I thougt he was number 1!

5 Shinji Ikari

He may be different than other heroes who are brave and strong but that's why he's the greatest of them all. Being a hero doesn't always have to be about being brave and loyal.

Shinji should be number one. You don't HAVE to be a fighter to prove your worth as a character.

Ikari Shinji has the full range of Emotions, from Happy to Sa or Angry or Thoughtful or Content the character goes to extreme ranges of that sort throughout the show really. Might not expect the show might be dull without Ikari Shinji.

I mean I like Misato more,but he's a interesting character

6 Toji Suzuhara
7 Ryoji Kaji
8 Ritsuko Akagi

Brilliantly minded, sarcastic, and truly can take the heat.

9 Kensuke Aida
10 Kozo Fuyutsuki

He's so underrated.
