Her silhouette stands before the

dark city.

Keisuke-kun: Naw, no one will see this. It's secret, right?

HeWhoPostsStuff: Or is everyone supposed to be underground in shelters by now?

Reichu: Well, you know, inevitably there willbe a couple of people hanging around to capture the entire fight on digicam so they can post it on the Internet later. (Oh, wait, wrong episode…)

Here is probably a good place to make an important point about the Evas. When “Caged” (or anytime a human is available as a point of reference), their height is relatively stable at around 50 meters. (I actually calculated this based on C-214, using Misato's height of 163 cm.) But as soon as you send them out there — boy, things get outta control!

MDWigs: Originally, the Gainax staff never settled on an exact height and weight for the Evas. They “modified” them according to the situation, in some cases making them much bigger (taller than the buildings), in some cases smaller. The reason for this is that they didn't want to be tied down, and so this variation allowed for more dramatic scenes. (Asuka in EVA-02 climbing up a building, for instance.) The same applies to the Angels; they change size relative to how large the Evas happen to be during that episode.

After the series had finished, Gainax were asked if the Evas could be featured in Super Robot Wars(a strategic video game that has a lot of anime mecha in it). For this game the Gainax boys finally specified some “definite” dimensions for the Eva and these are listed in the encyclopedia for Super Robot Wars, as follows:

Official height: 40 ~ 200 m
Official weight: 700 ~ 96 000 t

Reichu: “‘Consistency’? What's that?” Speaking of size issues: Despite the inherent futility of it all,I've thrown together a size comparison chart showing approximately how large the various Angels are compared to Eva. Obviously, given Eva's variable height, it is not very useful for showing how large the Angels would be compared to one another. About the only thing we “know” is that Sahaquiel is the biggest, EoE's Giant Naked Rei notwithstanding.
