Well, Haruto has certainly shown himself to be quite...absurd. It feels like Sunrise is trying to create their own Shinji, except what made Ikari's character work was consistency in feelings (I don't want to do this) and motivations (I want to get the praise of my father). Haruto on the other hand switches from that of a cold blooded killer to one hell of a wuss. This contrast plays out in combat as well, being a complete novice one minute, and dodging like an ace the next.
Well, we'll see how creative the combat will get once the various modes get factored in.
