The 8th Angel has undergone a massive redesign with various stages and the fight itself is more fleshed out. It starts out in space as a giant ball with eyes similar to Leliel's shadow. NERV is unable to pinpoint the place where it will fall, it uses its A.T. Field to alter the light and velocity while falling. Then when it is about to land, it begins to resemble its TV anime counterpart, only this version is larger and has feathery spikes trailing it. When Shinji reaches the point where the angel will touch the ground, he uses Unit-01's A.T. Field to stop its descent, and a humanoid body comes out of the central eye and pierces Unit-01 hands, hurting Shinji too. Its core is also movable in great velocity and avoids attacks from Unit-02 until Rei in Unit-00' is able to physically grab hold of it and stop it (greatly hurting herself in the process). Unit-02 uses both progressive knives to damage the core, but only after using a knee attack to shove one of the knives clear through the core it is finally destroyed. When defeated, it retracts its eye shaped feathers like an insect and explodes into a massive geyser of bloody liquid and floods a great portion of the city.
- It was designed by Mahiro Maeda, who redesigned the common parts between Sahaquiel and 8th Angel, Hideaki Anno who did the little angels parts and Takeshi Honda who did the final humanoid part.
