Evangelion Unit-02 Type F (エヴァンゲリオン弐号機F型[?]) is an Evangelion Unit that first appeared in the artbook Neon Genesis Evangelion: ANIMA Visual Book. It was designed by Ikuto Yamashita.

Profile

It is a proposal for an update for the Evangelion Unit-02, focusing on close quarter combats, unlike the Evangelion Unit-00 Type F and the Evangelion Unit-01 Type F, it was not developed in time and was not deployed in the battle against the Mass Production Evangelions.

Since it is not equipped with special armaments such as Impact Bolt or the Angel's Backbone, it has a good maintainability. Evangelion Unit-02 Type F would be equipped with the N² reactor. It uses a powerful armor over it body and members, that can protect but also slows it down comparing to the Evangelion Unit-02. Regardless of it, it is still able to fight in close combat with two ATF Round Knifes.

History

Neon Genesis Evangelion: ANIMA

It was being developed in preparation for the battle against SEELE's Evangelions, but due to the pilot's mental state, priority was given to the development of Evangelion Unit-01 Type F, and rebuilding of Evangelion Unit-00'. In reality, this equipment never saw action, since the development of the Type F was halted and SEELE plans for Human Instrumentality Project were in motion, using the Unit-02 as catalist instead of the Evangelion Unit-01.

Trivia

  • It also appears on the pachinko game CRヱヴァンゲリヲンX, where you can see Shinji, Asuka and Rei all using their Evangelions with the Type F Equipment to fight against the Tenth Angel. Rei uses the Angel's Backbone to destroy most of the A.T. Field used by the Tenth Angel, Asuka uses the blades to destroy more fields, until a single defensive layer remains, but is pushed away by the tendrils. Shinji uses the Impact Bolt to attack the angel, causing a massive explosion, finally defeating it.
  • In the pachinko game CRヱヴァンゲリヲンX, the design under the Type F is of the movie designs, rather than the TV designs.
  • In the pachinko game CRヱヴァンゲリヲン~いま、目覚めの時~, Shinji and Asuka are seen fighting against the Tenth Angel, both of them are using Evangelions with the Type F Equipment. The Tenth Angel uses its A.T. Field and tendrils to attack from a safe distance, Asuka runs toward it, cutting the fields and dodging the attacks. Shinji uses the Impact Bolt to destroy the Angel, finishing the fight.
