Fourth Impact

Fourth Impact

The Fourth Impact is an event that occurs in the movie Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo. The Fourth "Impact" is a prerequiste for SEELE's scenario for Human Instrumentality.


The cause of the Fourth Impact is the removal of the two Spears of Longinus from Lilith by Shinji Ikari. The two impact triggers are Kaworu Nagisa and Shinji Ikari. Following the removal of the two Spears of Longinus, Kaworu is demoted to the thirteenth angel, the destruction of Lilith's body occurs, and the Twelfth Angel is released from Mark.06. Evangelion 13 awakens after it eats the angel, thus causing the Fourth "Impact".

Ending Fourth ImpactEdit

Kaworu Nagisa allows the DSS Choker to kill him in order to stop Fourth Impact. However his death did not prevent it as the other impact trigger, (Shinji Ikari), was still alive. Mari attempts to remove Shinji's entry plug as the power of Eva 13 decreases and it falls from the sky. Kaworu's image appears briefly as Shinji's entry plug is removed, leaving it ambiguous as to who exactly ended the impact. With both pilots removed, Eva 13 loses all power and shuts down. 

During the Fourth Impact the Black Moon rises from the ground, resembling a Holy Grail in shape.
