Welcome back to the 30 Anime Challenge on the Alfredeo Blog! If you’re new around here, this is where I talk about the different topics from the list above and give my thoughts on them.
Also, this is opinion based. Please do not bash on my thoughts, instead please give your opinion on today’s topic and I would be glad to read it!
**if you particularly do not like seeing blood or gore, the video below has those elements, so just warning you.**
Today’s topic is the most badass scene from an any anime character. I’ve seen a lot of cool action scenes in the anime I’ve seen, but this one has to be the most “gnarly” one:
(the video has japanese audio, but spanish subs. that’s the only i could find)
When Unit-01 went fucking berserk against the 14th Angel, Zeruel, in the action mech drama, Neon Genesis Evangelion.
When Shinji and Unit-01 went into battle again Zeruel, one of the Angels, he got beat down pretty bad, to the point of running out of energy and the Angel exposing Unit-01’s core, which if the Eva didn’t go into berserk mode, Shinji would’ve died.
But, with Shinji begging and pleading for Unit-01 to start working again, his wish came true and the Evangelion went into “berserk mode”.
This is where the Evangelions’ skills and attributes increase a lot and has a more savagery and animal-like fighting style. There is a long story and background about berserk mode but I don’t want to really get into it.
Unit-01 absolutely destroys Zeruel, with ripping the Angel’s main weapon, breaking it’s AT-Field and even Unit-01 EATING it’s power supply (i think).
To top it off, Unit-01 does an intimidating and a little creepy roar/howl.
Pretty much all of the Evangelion’s go into berserk mode, but when Unit-01 does it, it’s insane.
