List of Angels
1st - Adam
- A giant being of light (roughly EVA-shaped with dark spots where its eyes and core would assumed to be)
- An embryonic form, typically set either subdermally in a person's palm/hand or in a solid, orange, transparent material
2nd - Lilith
- A large, pudgy, white being with a seven-eyed mask over its face and a lower body composed of several human-sized (lower) bodies, crucified to a red cross by the Lance of Longinus
- If the Lance is not present, then the lower body may feature full legs, but still with smaller bodies poking out
- A form of Ayanami Rei, marked by being giant, naked, white, and winged; sometimes seen as large body parts in the background, most notably a giant face

- Vaguely humanoid creature with large bony structures on its shoulders and torso and a distinctive beaked face.

- A hollow, translucent blue octahedron.
6th - Gaghiel
- An aquatic being with a massive body and long jaws filled with sharp teeth.
