"Registers as "Blue".": This isn't unilaterally the case. We get orange with Eva-03 (and Armisael alternates between orange and blue, at least initially), and green is somehow associated with Eva-00 at one point. "Blood Type Pattern" ought to get its own article.
"Who wants to tackle this monstrosity?": I have some things in mind, if other people don't beat me to them... --Reichu 12:18, 19 August 2007 (EDT)
- You can have at it as this is one subject I'm still fairly ignorant on.--Eva Yojimbo 12:23, 19 August 2007 (EDT)
- Was it Eva-03 itself that registered as Orange, or was that thanks to how that freak Bardiel screwed around with it? I always thought it was the latter, especially since the other Angel to show Orange (Armisael, cycling patterns) was the other Angel to merge with an Eva.
- Pattern Green? Jeez, I got to find this one...

- Well, okay. The "Bardiel/Eva-03 Conglomerate", how about that? ;;p "Pattern Green" shows up during the cross-compatibility stuff in 14.
- I don't think Orange has anything to do with Evas specifically. Leliel initially showed up as Orange (before her ultra-thin body manifested below Eva-01). Anyway, crap for a different (and just as frustrating) article. --Reichu 15:58, 19 August 2007 (EDT)
What I want to know is what this PWM and "inherent wave pattern" crap has to do with genetics. When that familiar-looking graph comes up in EoE (it's a real-life thing, I believe -- something to do with DNA), it says "Genetic Pattern: Compared With Known Data". OH SHI--
It says "Blood Type: Analyzing", too, whatever the hell that means... --Reichu 19:27, 20 August 2007 (EDT)
- DNA doesn't really have a "wave" pattern, but just ignore it. I chalk it up to translation and technobabble stuff. --V 19:46, 20 August 2007 (EDT)
What needs to be cleaned up about this page? It's pretty solid. --V 19:56, 26 February 2008 (PST)
- I think I've improved this page, but how much of the real life Wave-particle stuff actually belongs here? Should I remove most of it and let people follow the links in the references to find it, leaving the page mostly about the Eva application of the term? Or is it O.K. as is? --thewayneiac 10:42 AM EST. Feb. 27, 2011
- Giving it a cursorial glance, to start with I'd put the images into a montage box (they're just kind of floating around in an ugly way), format the Ritsuko quotes so that they aren't enormous (just indenting them with : should be fine), and organize the page into subheadings. IRL stuff can stay for comprehensiveness' sake. --Reichu 18:11, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
- Looking a bit better. The article still feels a bit unfocused and non-comprehensive. Since the PWM idea is so prevalent in fanon, we might as well use the article to divulge some of the common hypotheses and how they've been arrived at; and, looking through Discussion, there's a hell of a lot. The article doesn't even go into why we should think anyone aside from the Angels (like Shammy) is made of this crap. Basically, the article needs to give the reader a reason to give a damn; otherwise, the inherent wave pattern stuff is best given a mention on the Angel page and nothing more. Hope this makes sense... ^_^;
- Also, being a retard with physics, the more technical passages could stand to be a little more lucid. The writing quality is also a bit fast and loose in places. Additionally, I noticed that the Rei scan is labeled her "inherent wave pattern", though offhand I don't recall the show doing so. --Reichu 20:22, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
