The End of Evangelion (1997)

The following weapons were used in the anime film The End of Evangelion:

Glock 17

The Glock 17 is seen widely within NERV, likely as a standard sidearm for NERV security forces, including computer technicians First Lieutenants Makoto Hyuga and Shigeru Aoba, the latter handing one (or possibly his own) to Maya Ibuki.

Glock 17 (Generation 1) - 9x19mm
Hyuga keeps his Glock 17 in his desk. Note that there is only one spare magazine due to “defence budget cuts”. It seems that someone thinks stocking up on ammunition is a waste of funds.
We’re at a disadvantage. We don’t have decent anti-personnel defences.
Hyuga checks his Glock 17.
Hyuga holds his Glock 17 as he prepares to defend himself and his comrades.
Shigeru Aoba: Release the safety.
Maya Ibuki: I can't! I just can't shoot this thing, Aoba!
Shigeru Aoba: Of course you can! You've had basic training!
Maya Ibuki: But I shot at targets, not at other human beings!
Shigeru Aoba: Idiot! You kill or you die!
Ibuki reluctantly holds a Glock 17 given by Aoba.

Heckler & Koch USP

NERV officer Major Misato Katsuragi uses a Heckler & Koch USP as her personal sidearm in the film to defend Tokyo 3’s NERV Headquarters. Throughout the series, her USP is chambered in .40 S&W. This detail was forgotten during the production of the movie and in Groundworks of Evangelion the Movie 2 concept art exists of a USP45, but the final version depicted in the film still closely resembles the USP9/40.

Misato pulls the USP slide to chamber a round.
Nothing personal here either.

Browning Hi-Power MK III

The Browning Hi-Power is the standard-issue sidearm used by the JSSDF being seen holstered and drawn. In the manga, some JSSDF soldiers carried the Walther P99 pistol.

A Browning Hi Power is seen in the JSSDF soldier’s holster on the left. Unlike the soldier with the pistol drawn, this soldier’s pistol is better detailed showing the Hi Power’s top slide line ramp with the non raised rear sight and black plastic contoured grips.

Inglis Hi-Power

Along with the standard Browning Hi Power, a Canadian Inglis Hi-Power is drawn by a JSSDF soldier attempting to eliminate Shinji Ikari. It can be identified as such by its distinctive rear sight. In the manga, this same JSSDF soldier draws a Gen 2 Glock 17.

Inglis Hi-Power - 9x19mm
Sorry kid, nothing personal.
A JSSDF soldier puts an Inglis Hi-Power to Shinji's head. The humped rear sight indicative of an Ingis-made pistol can clearly be seen as well as the gun’s brown flat grips.



Ritsuko Akagi uses a R-92 revolver, which she hides in the pocket of her lab coat during her confrontation with Gendo inside Terminal Dogma.

Submachine Guns

Hybrid Submachine Gun

According to Evangelion Chronicle #22, Aoba's personal submachine gun is a hybrid consisting of parts from a Steyr MPi 69 and the Russian AEK-919K Kashtan. While normally only NERV guards are armed with submachine guns and normal technicians and computer operators are only armed with Glock 17s, command center computer operator Lt. Aoba either manages to get his hands on one or kept one stored in his desk for just such an eventuality.

NERV security forces use the IMI Uzi as their standard-issue weapon.

Heckler & Koch G11

The Heckler & Koch G11 is the standard weapon of Japanese Strategic Self Defence Force soldiers when given the order to raid the NERV Headquarters in Tokyo-3. The G11's caseless ammunition is accurately depicted, as the JSSDF's G11s never eject casings (as opposed to their Hi-Powers, which do); its reciprocating magazine, on the other hand, is not.

Machine Guns


The MAS NF-1, which is a variant of the AA-52 machine gun mounted on French-made military vehicles, is seen mounted in a co-axial position on JSSDF AMX-10RCs as they lay a bombardment on Nerv HQ in the beginning of the movie.
