Evangelion Type β (エヴァンゲリオン乙型, "Evangerion Otsugata") or Evangelion Unit-β (エヴァンゲリオン乙号機, "Evangerion Otsugouki") is one of the new Evangelions to appear in the games Evangelion Detective and later reappeared in Battle Orchestra. It is piloted by Kaworu Nagisa on both occasions.
It is the sister unit of Unit Alpha. Unit Beta is armed with a heat rapier (charges up with heat to do more damage) and can extend wings from its pylons. The wings are similar to Adam's wings during Second Impact.
Unlike any other Evangelion seen, Type β seems to possess hair, having back length silver hair protruding from beneath its face plate. It seems to take inspiration from the design of the Mass Production Evangelion units, having the ability to extend wings from its shoulder pylons and possessing no distinct facial features with the exception of a black, jaw like apparatus. This makes sense seeing at both units are associated with Kaworu Nagisa.
It is designed and developed separately from NERV'S EVAs, made only by SEELE. In Battle Orchestra, it is said to be the Evangelion Unit with the best performance, using a sword to fight against its enemies.
