Neon Genesis Evangelion is a seminal anime series that has captivated audiences for decades. Fans continue to discuss the intricacies of the plot, characters, and philosophies behind the series despite its ending in 1997. The show was revolutionary, combining complex themes with psychological elements and religious references.


The character who topped our list of height comparisons is Gendo Ikari. According to Evangelion Fandom, he is estimated to be around 6 feet and 2 inches, and he is followed by Shigeru Aoba, who is estimated to be about 6 feet tall. Next is Makoto Hyuga, who is 5 feet and 8 inches tall. Kaworu Nagisa is quite tall for his age at 5 feet and 6 inches. Yui Ikari was 5 feet 5 inches tall. As EvaWiki revealed, Misato Katsuragi, Maya Ibuki, and Ritsuko Agaki stand at 5 feet and 3 inches to 5 feet and 4 inches as adults and are of average height. Moreover, Toju Suzuhara stands at 5 feet and 1 inch, and Hikari Horaki is 2 inches taller than Asuka Langley Soryu, which is surprising because they are just the same age. On the other hand, Shinji Ikari is 4 feet and 9 inches. Rei Ayanami and Kensuke Aida are the shortest Eva pilots, standing at 4 feet and 8 inches.


In analyzing the ages of Neon Genesis Evangelion characters, we have three sources: Evangelion Fandom, Absolute Anime, and the EvaWiki website. Thus, the table revealed that Gendo Ikari is the oldest character. Next to him is Ritsuko Agaki who, is 30 years old, and Misato Katsuragi, 29 years old. EvaWiki claims that both Makoto and Shigeru are both in their late-20s.  Yui Ikari died when she was 27 years old. Maya is a shy, pretty, and kind of tomboyish woman in her early-20s. Kaworu Nagisa is 15 years old and is a military otaku. His fellow Eva pilots, Shinji, Rei, Asuka, Hikari, Tonju, and Kensuke, some of whom are 14 and 13 years old, are around his age.
