Worst Neon Genesis Evangelion Characters

The Evangelion cast is full of unlikeable characters. Do you hate everybody or do you have some of the worst characters?

The Top Ten

1 Asuka Langley Soryu Asuka Langley Soryu

God, I can't stand her voice. She's so screechy and whiny. She's also incredibly rude to everyone and yes, she had a hard life but that's honestly no excuse for being a jerk!

Annoying tsundere garbage

Asuka is flat-out awful without any really redeeming moments. She treats everyone around her like dirt, lashes out at them with little no provocation, and is horrible from the moment she arrived all the way to the end of the series. I know people make excuses for her, reminding us of her tragic childhood. But that in no way justifies just how awful a person she is.

She is such a brat, and she does things that doesn't make any sense such as kick doors and plays with them. She is too immature. She is also saccharine and dishonest sometimes. Depressed, jealous, suspicious, unforgiving, anti-social, wild, talkative you name it! Asuka is that erratic of a character! - Pinkarray

2 Shinji Ikari Shinji Ikari

Shinji gets way too much hate. Sure, he's a bit of a coward, but you know what, he has every right to be! He lost his mother when he was only a kid, he has hardly any friends, and his dad left him when he was only 4 years old, and came back to him 10 years later only to tell him to pilot a much and fight the angels by himself, with no prior training. and keep in mind that he's only 14. I really liked shinji and I felt really sorry for him too.

I was expecting him to be in 1 but, at least close enough..

He is always crying! I hate characters who cry! And he keeps balling up in a ball and being submissive, I hate characters who ball up in a ball and cry! - Pinkarray

3 Hikari Horaki

The cliched saccharine brat who wants to appease Asuka - Pinkarray

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

She's a pedophile

She is always drinking, which may be the cause of some of her anger issues. - Pinkarray

5 Ryoji Kaji

He sets a terrible example for the kids and is too calm and submissive as well. I also hate his perverted behavior towards Misato. - Pinkarray

6 Gendo Ikari Gendo Ikari Gendo Ikari is a fictional character in the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. He is the commander of NERV.

I always thought 'Gendo's absentee father schtick would be explained' but no, he's just a coward and a horrible father. He brought on the third impact for his own personal redemption and nothing else, sacrificing his own son to do it.

I could vote Asuka because she's annoying and abusive and literally exhibits textbook cases of relational aggression towards her supposed 'rival', or I could vote Shinji for bailing on and abandoning Rei because he couldn't deal with her reality, and for being the gaze around which the show's world revolves. But ultimately, you have to agree that Gendo is the big villain here. Credit to Rei for finally lopping his pervy hand right off!

Worst character by far

He is violent and cold father. - Pinkarray

7 Ritsuko Akagi

Another overly calm and patient character who breaks down at the end. - Pinkarray

8 Kensuke Aida

Camera geek who sells pictures of Asuka - Pinkarray

9 Toji Suzuhara

He and Kensuke are buttholes who Shinji should stay away from. - Pinkarray

10 Maya Ibuki

She was quiet when she didn't want to say Asuka is dead? - Pinkarray

The Contenders

11 Rei Ayanami 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.

Very boring and emotionless piece of junk.

I have a lot of reasons to hate her

12 Kaworu Nagisa

Literally just there for the yaoi fangirls
