Despised character: Gendick of course, this prick has to this day to show any redeemable qualities and is the main responsible for Shinji being an emotional mess, I don't really get why so many people see him as a cool villain, sh*t just happens and then he claims things are going according to his plans, though we rarely see him actually doing anything (he is just the Starscream to Keel Lorenz' Megatron by the way). What the hell did Yui Ikari ever saw in this bastard? Dishonorable mention for all of SEELE and Ritsuko's child strangling mom.
Overrated Character: Asuka is selfish, hypocrite, possessive, uncaring, arrogant, abusive, never acknowledges her own faults (let alone learn from them) and shifts the blame on someone else, every time she goes fighting on her own, she loses, yet the fandom loves her. She is kinda fun to draw though
Underrated Character: I don't get it, Shinji is the most effective of the three pilots, he's seriously flawed, true, but despite his fears and personal issues he gets in the fucking robot 80% of the time and gets shit done, he also tries to overcome his flaws and interact with people, If surrounded by less f*cked up people (and those few who actually cared about him not died messily before his eyes) he would have been a great hero. Yet the fandom sees him as a wuss, his horrible portrayal in the End of Evangelion didn't help at all.
Favorite Moment: Episode 19, all of it.
Despised Moment: The infamous Hospital scene from the End of Evangelion. Grotesque, disturbing and pointless. The worst part is that I have found people who defend it.
Favorite couple: ShinjixRei, I love the chemistry between these two, specially in the manga.
Despised couple: ShinjixAsuka, classic abusive relationship with double standard included. Also any pairing involving Gendo

On Asuka - the fandom loves her FOR all those things you mentioned. That is what you call an interesting, three-dimensional character who you can love or love to hate. XD
Agreed about Shinji. I despised him in EoE, but everywhere else in the franchise he's not a bad character at all.
Disagreed that Shinji/Asuka is "abusive" - the whole point of their dynamic was that Asuka's pushy, overbearing attitude, insults and namecalling, and competitive streaks were all things Shinji felt he NEEDED in his life and that helped him better himself so that Asuka could gain a respect for him that would outweigh her disdain and would stop complaining about things about him. And as much as Asuka would never admit it, she needed Shinji too.
Oh and about the Asuka/Shinji relationship, I forgot to mention that yes I TOTALLY see what's so toxic and unhealthy about it. I meant to say that were those two kids psychologically better off and well adjusted enough to have normal interactions and live normal lives, then they'd be a lot more compatible as friends.

Despised Moment: Hospital Scene of EOE
Favorite Couple: Toss up between Shinji x Rei and Shinji x Mana
Least Favorite couple: Shinji x Asuka
Asuka was not that bad when introduced, I actually used to like her, but as the show goes on she becomes unsufferable (Mocking Shinji during the Leliel incident? Not. Cool) and her backstory came too late for me to really feel sorry about her.
