In Evangelion -ANIMA-, several other Ayanami clones appear. They were produced at the same time and have nearly identical figures and appearances. To differentiate them, they were given different haircuts. The fifth clone, Rei Cinq, has a short, purple, haircut. Although the Ayanami series clones produced at NERV are said to not develop any self-awareness, being remotely controlled by the original Rei via a mental link to operate the Sword of Damocles network, Cinq began to develop a personality on her own after Rei Quatre's mind contamination in Volume 1.
From then on she shows exceptional growth beyond the two previous Reis, Rei No. Trois and Rei Quatre. She is expected to be the perfect Rei as she could grow even beyond the second Rei, No. Deux. Who was previously considered the ideal clone, Cinq would fight alongside Asuka Langley Sohryu, saving her life multiple times and becoming a friend to Asuka and come into a big sister role when with Rei Six; by the time NERV deploys to the Moon, Rei Cinq is determined to have surpassed the ability and growth of Rei No. Deux, the original Rei that Shinji met in 2015.
Unfortunately she, in her EVA0.0 [Cinq], is forced to back up Asuka (piloting her Eva-02 Allegorica) in the battle against Armaros and physically catch Asuka, who herself caught Rei Six, after Armaros destroys EVA-02 II, giving them to Evangelion EUROII Heurtebize and Hikari Horaki, before going back to balttle; the black evangelion grabs her 0.0EVA after retrieving and securing Asuka's safety and drags her into the Sphere of Longinus, resulting in both her apparent death and the destruction of the EVA0.0 [Cinq].
