What is the key to Nebuchadnezzar? |Evangelion:3.0+1.01

Shin Evangelion

Quote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8mf0qDD3Qg

Official name: Nebuchadnezzar key
possession: Ikari Gendou

The first appearance is
an item brought back from Bethany Base by Evangelion’s new movie version “Break” Ryoji Kaji, and is handed over to Ikari Gendou.

The shape is …

Palm size in an orange clear case.
It consists of a white line that looks like the bottom of a human neck and parts like the handle of a syringe , and is carried in a large attache case-like container.

How to use is unknown.
In the play, the description at the time of use did not appear.

And Ryoji Kaji and Gendou say:

Kamochi “This is the promised thing. The lost number that was kept as a spare. It’s a way to spin the god and the soul.”
Gendou “Oh, the key to Nebuchadnezzar that opens the door to complement humanity.”

It is called “a guidepost that spins gods and souls” and “a thing that opens the door to complement humanity”, and when used, it can abandon human reason and evolve.

The key to Nebuchadnezzar is one of the important items for Ikari Gendou to succeed in the “Human Complementary Plan”.

What is the effect of this item?
In the conversation with Misato, you can see the following.

  • It’s okay to be shot with a gun. Physical damage is lost.
  • You can add information beyond the world’s reason to your body.

In other words, we can abandon our existence as a person and become closer to God.


What is the key to Nebuchadnezzar, which opens the door to human complementation? |Evangelion:3.0+1.01

Gendou’s remarks.
“Ah, it’s the key to Nebuchadnezzar that opens the door to human complementation .”
What does “open the door to human complementation” mean here?

What can be considered from this statement?

Human Complementation = Human Complementation Plan

Door of human complementation plan = Guf door to make an impact

The Nebuchadnezzar key is thought to be the item needed to open the guff door .

Indeed, in order to carry out the Human Complementary Plan,
Gendou has gained the power of “god killing” to abandon humans, deify them, and kill old gods.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Key and Adam’s Foetation | Evangelion:3.0+1.01



The image is “Adam’s Foetation” transplanted into Ikari Gendou’s hand .

The Nebuchadnezzar key is an item that first appeared in the new movie version, and will not appear in the TV version.

Also, in the TV version, “Adam’s Foetation” appears instead of “Nebuchadnezzar’s Key”.
Conversely, Adam’s foetation does not appear in the new movie version.

In short, it can be thought of as “the key of Nebuchadnezzar = Adam’s foetation.”
Adam’s foetation is also handed over to Gendou from Ryoji Kaji’s hand.

What is the spare key for Nebuchadnezzar? | Evangelion:3.0+1.01

In the conversation between Ryoji Kaji and Gendou, the expression “lost number stored as a spare” appears.

What you can see in this conversation

  • There are multiple keys to Nebuchadnezzar.
  • What I stole is a spare for storage.

One hypothesis is that the Nebuchadnezzar key can be used to create a full-body core Eva.

Is that the reason why Gendou didn’t die when he was shot in the head?

Even in the play, some Eva with a whole body core appeared, but they were used for them.
Isn’t it something that was reserved as a spare?

Can be thought of.

Details are unknown regarding the lost number

What is a lost number?

Considering the context of “lost number stored as a spare”

Originally, the “model number” that existed in the plan, but in
the middle of the plan, the model number that no longer exists because it “became unusable or unusable” for some reason .


It can be considered that the “Nebuchadnezzar key” assigned to the model number that no longer exists was kept as a spare for other model numbers.

However, this is speculative.

What was the cause?
Was it used for Eva in the first place?
If so, what is the lost number?

There are still many mysteries.


Origin of the Key of Nebuchadnezzar | Evangelion:3.0+1.01

Where did the word “Nebuchadnezzar” come from in the first place?

It is believed to have come from the real king Nebuchadnezzar I in ancient Mesopotamia .

Nebuchadnezzar I (reigned: c. 1125 BC – c. 1104 BC) was the king of the Second Dynasty of Egypt (Babylon 4th Dynasty) in ancient Mesopotamia. The best known of the kings of the same dynasty. The name Nebuchadnezzar is based on the Hebrew notation of the Old Testament, and is written as Nabu Kudurri Usur in Akkadian (Babylonian).

After becoming king, he concentrated on fighting the Elamites (Shutrukid dynasty), as did the previous kings. He was the most successful king of all time in this dynasty, winning the battle with Elam and occupying Susa. At this time, the statue of Marduk, who had been taken away by Elam at the time of the fall of the Kassite dynasty (Third Dynasty of Babylon), was retaken and the priest of Babylon’s Marduk was revived.This had great religious significance for Babylonia at the time, and many literary works on the expedition of Nebuchadnezzar I and the return of Marduk were left.

Source: Wikipedia

The reason for this is that the above context also includes keywords that are closely related to “Marduk” and Eva.

From this text, there is no connection with Zele’s “Marduk Project”.

However, I think we can think of it this way.

Nebuchadnezzar (key = Ikari Gendou) regainedthe Marduk god statue (Eva Unit 1) that had been taken away,and revived (activated) the Marduk priest (additional impact) of Babylon .
