"As far as I'm concerned, my brother... was everything..."
—Eve to 2B and 9S

Eve is a major character and the main antagonist of Branches A and B in NieR: Automata. He is the younger brother of Adam.

Story

Commander That is why you, the YoRHa forces, exist:
SPOILER ALERT - Plot details for NieR: Automata follow.

After impaling Adam with their swords, 2B and 9S watch as Eve climbs out of Adam's puncture wounds. A naked and long-haired Eve goes berserk and causes the surrounding terrain to collapse. 2B and 9S flee as Eve carries Adam into his arms and vanishes in the debris.

"Why did you kill my brother?! I... I..!"
—Eve to 2B and 9S during battle.

Following his brother's defeat, Eve goes berserk and attacks 2B and 9S. After nearly being defeated, he uses the lifeforce of the remaining machine lifeforms connected to the network to continue his onslaught. 9S hacks into Eve to make an attempt at removing his object control function. During his time inside Eve, 9S is infected by his corruption but ultimately suceeds in eliminating Eve's object control function.

Eve kneels before 2B in defeat, calling out to his brother one last time. 2B stabs him in the head, killing him.

"Listen to me Adam... I never disliked fighting. But I didn't want you to be hurt. And I especially didn't want to lose you. So let's go somewhere quiet. Together."
—Eve to Adam.

Following his brother's defeat, Eve goes berserk and attacks 2B and 9S. After nearly being defeated, he uses the lifeforce of the remaining machine lifeforms connected to the network to continue his onslaught. 9S hacks into Eve to make an attempt at removing his object control function. During his time inside Eve, 9S is infected by his corruption but ultimately suceeds in eliminating Eve's object control function. When 9S reaches the end of Eve's labyrinth, he sees a giant house containing figments of Adam and Eve sitting across each other. Eve tells Adam that while he enjoyed fighting, he never wanted anything to happen to him, and states that he wishes to go together someplace quiet.

As the tower is destroyed by A2, Eve is presumably destroyed along with it.

chil[D]hood's end

"Adam and Eve are inside the ark. Eve is asleep. Adam holds him in a gentle embrace. He seems to be smiling at me."
—9S in the ark.

While 9S dies, he sees the red girls in the Ark, having decided to stop their plans of ending humanity. The red girls have also reformed the consciousness of both Adam and Eve, and both are now free of any malice or hate towards androids. Eve is in the Ark, asleep and held by his brother, who invites 9S to join them on the Ark. They, the memories of the machine lifeforms, and optionally 9S, are aboard the Ark, which fires off to explore new worlds.

the [E]nd of YoRHa

Depending on the ending before ending E, Eve either wanders in space in the Ark in hopes of finding a new world, or is completely wiped out by A2. Whether or not the pods also rebuilt Eve is unknown.

Personality

He's more simple-minded and doesn’t put much deep thought into things.

Eve cares deeply for Adam, and is very protective of him. After Adam's death, he is so overcome by grief that he gets to the point that he deigns himself unable to live normally without Adam's presence in life, and attempts to kill 2B and 9S without any regard for his own life.

He is very inquisitive and has a childlike demeanor, as he is often questioning Adam on why he needs to mature, and wants to play with his brother in their free time.

Gameplay

Route A

  • Eve is first fought in Chapter 05. His attacks are the same as when Adam was first fought.
  • Eve is encountered again Chapter 10 as the final boss of Route A.

Route B

  • Eve is fought only once in this route, as the final boss once again, of Route B during Chapter 10. Defeating him requires hacking into his system in order to disconnect him from the network.

Intel Description

Chapter 01 - This unit has achieved an unusual level of evolution among machine lifeforms, as it possesses a strong resemblance to androids. It first appeared after splitting off from another machine.

Chapter 05 - Eve was again encountered in the alien mothership. He has the ability to regenerate no matter how many times he is killed, and adores the unit known as Adam-who he thinks of as an older brother.

Chapter 10 - After going mad with rage over the loss of Adam, Eve gained the ability to unleash powerful attacks with an arm clad in debris. Thanks to the desperate hacking work of 9S, he was eventually seperated from the network and killed.

Quotes

  • "I know you two feel the same. That this world...is utterly meaningless. As far as I'm concerned, my brother... was everything. And now...EVERYTHING MUST DIE!" - Eve to 2B and 9S just before battling them.
  • "Hey, can I kill 'em yet?" - Eve to Adam, should 2B strike early during the battle underground.
  • "Shouldn't we be called Cain and Abel or something instead?" - Eve to Adam, on the subject of their names.
  • "Then I'm gonna try extra hard to finish this! Extra EXTRA hard!"
  • "Brother..." - Eve's final word.

Trivia

  • The tattoos that appear on Eve's body form the symbol of the Cult of the Watchers from Drakengard. The significance of this is not yet known. However, the founder of the Cult, as well as the significance of the Cult's symbol, are both references to the biblical story of Adam and Eve.
  • Like with his brother, Anemone, and the Commander of YoRHa, Eve was designed by Yuya Nagai.
  • It is revealed in Route B that Eve needed a lot of convincing from Adam to wear clothing, so much that Eve refuses to wear a shirt and only dons black pants.
  • According to Nier: Automata Guide Book, Eve's three sizes are B: 100cm; W:74cm; H:94cm. His height is 188cm while his weight is 228.6kg.
    • He shares the same measurements as his brother.
