Evangelion Mark.4444C (エヴァンゲリオンマーク4444C, "Evangerion māku Yonjû Yon Yonjû Yon Shī") is an autonomous mass-produced Evangelion unit introduced in Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon A Time. It is armed with a positron cannon, that can be shot in a faster rate due to being powered by multiple Evangelion Mark.44B,
The Evangelion Mark.4444C is a large Evangelion Unit which mounts a Positron cannon land battle variant on it's center, supported by the central cable that directs the power from the energy transmitter that is also connected with the four Evangelion bodies and the tentacles under it. This weapon is supported by 4 upper-torso Evangelion units that support the positron cannon with one hand and hold a glowing white circle around it. These bodies despite their resemblance lack a true head, instead have a crudely purple cable connecting the mask resembling that of an Angel. Despite being an empty mask, before shooting the cannon a red dot light can be seen inside the mask. The color of these main body are green, white and red. The hands are colored red, the pentagon shape in the arms are colored orange, white and red. The neck part is colored purple. The unit moves via four long, rotating drill shaped tentacles attached to it's base.
Being a very unique unit, the Mark.4444C posses many unique features. First, although this unit possesses a positron cannon, For a faster fire rate, it uses a system that allows it to have energy transferred via a group of Mark.44B's. When the positron cannon is fired, The red dots inside the Angel masks around each unit blinks and the same beam noise released by the angels can be heard with the same cross shaped and rainbow halo can be seen. The recoil of the cannon causes the whole Evangelion to move backwards, using the maximum length of the front tentacles to stabilize the position of the main body. After the first shot, the globe underneath glows red in color, and the color of the beam emitted is of a blue, and rings form around it as it is shot.
The tentacles, while mainly used for movement through the use of screw propulsion, are also able to serve as a sort of appendage as it is able to hold and twist Unit-08 β-ICC, also emitting the A.T. Field in hopes to stop the attack of Unit-08 β-ICC.
The Evangelion Mark.4444C first appearance was during the Paris Assault Mission. Initially, a single Mark.4444C and a group of Mark.44B's were hidden behind a Camouflage Cocoon. When the wave of Evangelion Mark.44A's were destroyed, the army dropped the Camouflage Cocoon revealing themselves. The group of Mark.44B generates power and routes it to the ultra-high voltage system under the Mark.4444C. Mark.4444C shoots the positron cannon that is deflected by using the ships fitted with the Enchanted Shields of Virtue, as the ships are destroyed and throw far away, one of the ships hits the Eiffel Tower and breaks it upper part. Right after the first fire, it immediately prepares the next one, by accelerating and assuming fire position.
Before it can happen, Mari asks Nagara for a diversion while she runs towards the Mark.4444C with the upper part of the Eiffel Tower, and Nagara uses the Wunder to manipulate and throw a ship towards it. Using the tentacles it is able to protect itself and also hold Unit-08 β-ICC down, twisting it body. Using the booster and the rotating part of Unit-08 β-ICC, Mari attacks the positron cannon while Mark.4444C tries to use their own A.T. Field to protect itself. Mari manages to damages the cannon and the Mark.4444C falls back, throwing away the group of Mark.44B's on the ground and exploding in the cross shaped and rainbow halo that is common to Evangelions.
It would show up later in the movie, where Evangelion 13 uses the spear to eliminate all Evangelions.
- Upon the 4444C's appearance in Paris, accompanied by multiple 44B units, Ritsuko Akagi asserts that these Evangelions constitute a violation of the Vatican Treaty by NERV due to the custom modification of standard Evangelion units for military purposes.
- The name of the unit, Evangelion Mark.4444C, may suggest that the '4' refers to one "Evangelion body". Since the unit consists of four "Evangelion bodies" , the name "Evangelion 4444C" is assigned.
- Like most other Evangelion units, the Mark.44B would show up later in the movie when Evangelion 13 uses the spear to eliminate all Evangelions. It is interesting to note that during this scene the arms of the 4 evangelion bodies are not holding onto the outer white ring which differs from their debut fight.
