Sixth Angel' (第6の使徒[?], "Dai 6 no shito") is the 6th Angel belonging to the Rebuild of Evangelion movie series. It is introduced in the movie Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone.

History

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

The Sixth Angel repeatedly transforms its body in response to various external stimuli. When Unit-01 first engages it, the Angel briefly shifts into an hourglass-like shape before adopting a shape resembling a three-dimensional cross with six arms and small discs floating over each, all possessing a reflection of its core. During a later battle, the Sixth Angel responds to a barrage of missiles by morphing into a ring of needle-like diamonds connected to a central point by wire-like extensions; it blocks rail gun fire by morphing into a most of a hexagonal pyramid before retaliating against the enemy forces by re-configuring into a sharp, cannon-like form.

When Unit-01 manages to damage the Angel with its first use of the Positron Cannon, the Sixth Angel briefly bursts into a fan-like arrangement of variably-sized diamonds, with its core visible through the mass. It then morphs into a massive five-pointed star before firing its most powerful beam, reverting to the "crystal" form when Unit-01 lands the fatal blow. The Sixth Angel's structure houses a spherical red core, and it shows exceptional shapeshifting capabilities, changing its form to suit its attack or defense requirements, although its "default" form is the classic octahedron form seen in the TV series.

Profile

The Angel also "squeezes" its bottom tip into a drill to penetrate the defensive amours but the shape of the angel overall does not shrink. The angel's body rotates as the drill operates. A sustaining choral sound of C note is heard while the angel drills, and the drill penetrates under the assistance of an AT-field.

The Sixth Angel's beam attack is much more dangerous than before. At its most powerful, the beam attack is capable of tearing down battleship-caliber gun emplacements and mountainsides alike. As it fires its weapon a loud screaming noise is heard before the weapon fires. The Sixth Angel can adjust the beam's power, as seen in the initial confrontation with Unit-01. In addition, the Angel is capable of adjusting its A.T. Field so that it would not be possible for an Evangelion to neutralize it.

The Sixth Angel takes a direct hit to its core in the first 2nd Experimental High Power Self-Propelled 460mm Positron Cannon[1] attack, only to survive and retaliate. It is destroyed in the second, exploding, along with its giant drill, in a hail of blood.

In other media

Phantasy Star Online 2

In commemoration to the release of the 4th movie for Rebuild of Evangelion, an event quest in the Japanese MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2 featured Ramiel as the primary antagonist. In the quest, players team up with the cast of Shinji, Rei, Asuka, and Misato to defeat the invading Sixth Angel. During the quest, its "Hourglass", "Cross", "Shield", "Cannon", and "Pentagram" forms are all obstacles the players endure while providing support to Shinji as he charges the Positron Cannon within Unit-01. The Sixth Angel also gets a unique new form for this event, modeled after the game's mechs, the A.I.S. If players are successful, a cutscene plays similarly to the anime (though Rei and Asuka piloting their own unique A.I.S. as well to provide support). This event ran from November 20, 2019 to February 5, 2020.

Evangelion Pachinko

In one of the many Evangelion Pachinko machine series, the Sixth Angel is defeated by Kaworu Nagisa controling Evangelion Unit-04 (Rebuild) holding a shield and the Spear of Longinus. It attacks the EVA but it is protected by the Absolute Terror Field. The Sixth Angel fires the beam again but EVA-04 is protected by the shield which is discarded. Kaworu aims the spear to pierce the A.T. Field and destroy the Sixth Angel. The music playing in this scene is Shuuketsu no Sono by Megumi Hayashibara.
