Blue Wat...ehm...Ramiel (5fh angel)
Does this comparison need a comment? J Ok, ok...J

On the left, taken from episode 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc etc of "Nadia", here's... Blue Water!

On the right, taken from episode 5 and 6 of "Evangelion", here's... Ramiel, the fifth angel!

This tribute is so obvious that I've found a very funny comic strip about it: you'll find it in this site.

South Pole - 1

South Pole - 2
In "Nadia", the South Pole is the cradle of all life, due to the presence of the World Tree (Tree of Life), whose roots are spread throughout the world.

In "Evangelion", instead, the South Pole is where the Second Impact took place in the last year of the twentieth century.

By a side it symbolizes life; by another side, death.

South Pole - 3
I've already mentioned the World Tree (Tree of Life) that appears in "Nadia" above. But it also makes an appearance in "The End of Evangelion", though it's not embedded in a glacier J Seems that Anno really loves this tree...

The walls of Jericho
...as much as the walls of Jericho, the ancient city in the southern Jordan valley of Palestine, cited in the Bible JJ

In "Nadia" they are mentioned when Gargoyle decides to use the Atomic Vibration Cannon ("[a weapon] which is said to have destroyed the city of Jericho") to destroy the Nautilus, during the battle at the Kermadec Tonga Trench.

In "Evangelion", it's Asuka who refers to them when menacing Shinji, in episode 9...J

Asuka: This is the unbreakable wall of Jericho.
Shinji: What?
Asuka: If you invade my side over this wall, you shall be executed.

Noah's ark
[Fuyutsuki]: Will the Third Impact become the Noah's ark that saves all the humanity? Or will it become the demon that destroys us all?

That's what Fuyutsuki says in "End of Eva", when the Tree of Life appears (see below)

I think it's useless to explain what's the connection with "Nadia"...

African animals
The angel in episode 16 ("Disease to die, and...") of "Evangelion" has black and white stripes and it may refer to the period spent in Africa by Nadia and her friends. Curiously, the zebra is the only typical African animal (lions, hippopotamus, rhinoceroses, giraffes etc) which does not appear when Gratan is flying over Africa.

Where did I already see those trees? J
Eh eh, the episode with Ramiel (the fifth angel aka "Blue Water 2" JJ) strikes back! What about an entire reused sequence? J Note: it's an official tribute (of course...get a look below and you'll understand why JJ).

In "Nadia" (episode 7), a group of trees are disintegrated by the power of the Tower of Babel

In "Evangelion", the same trees are devastated by Ramiel's destructive light beam (which is SO similar to the Light of Babel !)

This is an official tribute, reported even in the Eva Encyclopedia. Do you know what TELOP (note: it's an acronym) are? I'm not an expert but, as far as I know, they are those writings that appear on screen to give the impression of a military operation.

For example, episode 6 of Evangelion (believe it or not, the one with Ramiel...again J) shows a lot of TELOP, connected to Misato's Operation Yashima. I'm not sure, but one of them should be similar (or even the same) to one in episode 37 of "Nadia".
