"I'm a Dominant. This is my job."
— Evangel

Evangel's Emblem

Evangel is a well known Raven appearing in Armored Core: Nexus and Armored Core: Last Raven. Evangel plays a minor role in Nexus, only serving as a friendly rival for the player and the opening cinema features his AC. However, he plays a bigger role in Last Raven.

Information[edit | edit source]

Oracle as seen in Armored Core: Nexus

First inducted into the Raven fold in Armored Core: Nexus, Evangel was considered a very skilled pilot. However, he was caught taking illegal rewards from corporations and was thus expelled from the Ravens' Ark. He survived the Attack of the Unmanned Suicide Weapons and chose to work for Alliance after its creation.

In Last Raven, he becomes commander of Alliance's Tactical Unit forces and prepares against Jack-O and Vertex's imminent attack. Early on, he switches to Vertex's side. Depending on the path taken, he either switches back, is killed in combat, or fights against (or pilots) the Pulverizer.

Personality[edit | edit source]

In Last Raven, Evangel believes he is a Dominant, an extremely powerful pilot on the battlefield. In Last Raven, Evangel displays an inferiority complex with the consuming desire to assert his status as a Dominant at all costs. His fate depends on the missions taken during Story Mode though most of them results in his demise. However, in one ending, he sacrifices himself to help the Raven stop the Internecine which seems to indicate he may not be entirely selfish. In the first Pulverizer ending, however, it is revealed by Ed Weisz that Evangel was the very one piloting the Super Bipedal Pulverizer after his disappearance.

I was foolish to listen to Jack. I should have done this long ago. There is no point in fighting the inevitable.

I will defeat you! I will defeat Zinaida!

I will conquer everthing!

AC Oracle (Last Raven)[edit | edit source]

Oracle as seen in Armored Core: Last Raven

He pilots an AC known as the Oracle, a middleweight fuselage design specializing in solid weapon damage and has all around good stats. It equips a CR-WR93RL Linear rifle, MOONLIGHT laser blade, back mounted CR-WB91LGL linear cannon, MAGORAGA micro missiles and FUNI extension. While having a higher side drain, it is efficient enough to perform well in all combat situations.

In Last Raven, Evangel pilots an upgraded Oracle with entirely different body parts with similar weapon layout, minus the extension FUNI and switching the MAGORAGA micro missiles for a WB15L-GERYON2 laser cannon. In terms of pure defense, Oracle is on the high end with 1707 (Shell) and 1546 (EN) assuming base stats without enhancements and 1971 (Shell) and 1700 (EN) assuming optional parts as well as total tuning. In Eliminate AC Intruder, Evangel replaces the back weapons for the CR-WBW98G dual grenade launchers and boosters for the more effiicient CR-B81. His first version will have the Kissyoh Optional part installed while the second version will not.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Mission: Eliminate AC Intruder

Location: Advanced Base

A safe range between you and Evangel during the mission would be in mid to long range due to his MOONLIGHT and CR-WR93RL combo at close range. The CR-WR93RL has a high rate of stagger therefore it is highly recommended to bring a mid-weight build with powerful boosters to dodge these barrage of attacks. Periodically does Evangel "hide" inside the roofed structure of the base, making it the most suitable time to strike with a barrage of missiles with an extension capable of supporting it. High velocity weapons such as snipers are suitable for the mission as well. Additionally, Evangel will activate his Exceed Orbit when he does a charge, leading up to MOONLIGHT combos if he manages to catch up with your AC which can be deadly, regardless of your energy defense. As Evangel has less energy defense than shell, most energy weapons preferably the Karasawa is a good pick for this mission. Only when his leg parts are damaged or destroyed it is recommended to strike with an energy blade from the rear or the side.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Evangel with CR-C90U3 core

  • Evangel's name is perhaps derived from the mecha anime series "Neon Genesis Evangelion". It is also a reference to Evangelism, as his avatar is that of a holy preacher.
  • Evangel's voice is completely different from his Nexus counterpart.
  • In Armored Core: Formula Front, Mirage uses the frame of the Nexus version of Oracle as their choice u-AC.
  • A model kit of the Nexus version of Oracle exists as well as the Last Raven version.
  • If you look closely, in the opening intro of Nexus where Evangel is chased by missiles, he uses the CR-C90U3 core rather than his C01-GAEA (however, it should be noted that is a second AC with the same head)
  • Based on the height (155mm or 6.1") and scale (1/72) of the model kits, it can be determined that Oracle stands approx. 36.6 feet (11.15 meters) tall.
  • In Armored Core: Last Raven, Evangel's Nexus Oracle makes an appearance in the VR Arena under the AI ranker pilot No. 2448, and the AC name is Crow Predator.
  • In the Japanese version of Armored Core Last Raven,Evangel is voiced by Kirimoto Takuya.
