Biblical: Zeruel is named the "arm of God" because he obsessed with strength, and fierce, raw power.
Evangelion: In Evangelion, Zeruel enters the Geofront by blasting in with an untraceable beam akin to the one Sachiel used in episodes 1 and 2. His arms are made of what seem to be like paper, or ribon... but they are sharp and quick enough to remove Unit 02's arms, and head. Then, it splits Unit 00's head right down the middle. It then barges into Terminal Dogma and lumbers over the NERV head staff right before Unit 01 bursts through the wall to knock it away. Its beam takes off Unit 01's arm, and Shinji forces it onto an eject lift out of the Dogma.
When they land, Shinji begins to rip its face off, but then his internal battery dies and Zeruel regains the upper hand. He begins to hack away at Unit 01's soon-to-be-exposed N2 unit (the first time you see that the Evas have one and then in effect, realize that the Evas are copies of Angels). Shinji begins to scream, and something (Yui) bursts inside of Unit 01. It reactivates on its own energy, shreds one of Zeruel's ribbon arms with only its fingers, and begins to mercilessly kill the Angel. It cuts the Angel in half with its own ribbon arm, then tackles it and begins to eat it with its exposed human-like teeth.
