- EVE: "EVE."
EVE: "EVE! EVE!"
WALL•E: "Eeeee... va?"
- —EVE introduces herself, and WALL•E struggles to pronounce her name
EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator) is the deuteragonist in WALL•E. She is an advanced probe droid. Numbered "01" by AUTO from the Axiom, EVE is one of several robots who are sent to Earth on a scanning mission. An advanced model equipped with a quasar ion cannon and capable of flight and high speeds, she is determined to complete her task and initially fails to notice her would-be robot Romeo, WALL•E. The two robots subsequently bond, however, and the more she sees how much WALL•E cares for her, the more she falls for him, eventually making it her top priority to protect him.
Dedicated to her mission in scanning for any signs of self-sustaining plant-life on earth, EVE was not interested in WALL•E and was even hostile towards him at first, but befriended him when they formally introduced each other and when he took her to safety.
After WALL•E saves EVE from a dust storm, he takes her to his trailer and shows her all the treasures that he has collected over the years, including the plant that he found. EVE quickly recognizes the plant, scans it and uses a tractor beam to pull it into her vegetation-containing compartment. EVE deactivates to a state in which only a blinking green beacon signals that she is on. Determined to protect EVE, he shelters her from rain, lightning and more until the Axiom return vehicle picks her up to return her to the Axiom.
Discovering WALL•E's Kindness
After WALL•E and EVE return the plant to the Captain, he views EVE's memory banks, but sees that even though one plant survived, the rest of the Earth is still polluted and unable to sustain life. But the Captain still thinks that they should return to Earth to recolonize. EVE then discovers that while she was deactivated, WALL•E was protecting her from all sorts of danger and she begins to understand the meaning of love and how much WALL•E truly cares for her. She is so moved she nearly cries.
Reunion and Temporary Deactivation
As EVE attempts to find Wall-E ( who had still been waiting in hiding) AUTO arrives and attempts to have GO-4 steal the plant from her. She then attempts to first arrest him, then force the plant back only for him to throw it into the ship's disposal.
Suddenly, Wall-E arrives holding the plant. EVE tries to get his attention , but GO-4 traps her in a suspension beam, forcing her to watch helplessly as Wall-E is nearly electrocuted and destroyed. She is then thrown in the disposal with him after AUTO deactivated her.
EVE's New Directive
In the airlock disposal, EVE quickly regains her senses, and tries to free both herself, and WALL-E from being sucked into the vacuum of space.
When EVE is first seen in the movie, she dedicated to her task and hostile, not tolerating anyone or anything getting in her way of her task. However, after meeting WALL•E, she began to warm up to him and befriend him.
EVE has all necessary parts of a probe droid. She has an ergonomic suitable shape, scanner, flight at high speeds to cross ground quickly and morphable fingers for different purposes. EVE is also armed with a plasma cannon in her right arm. However, it is odd that a simple probe would have a plasma gun. The gun might have been installed to remove obstacles and attack enemies. An example of this is when she blasts away an electromagnet she is trapped by and when she frees herself from a garbage cube she is stuck in.
- EVE was designed with the help of Apple Inc.'s behind-the-scenes designer Jonathan Ive, who was responsible of the design of the iPod and other Apple devices.
- EVE was named after Eve, the first woman on Earth according to the Bible, because Andrew Stanton thought that WALL•E's loneliness reminded him of Adam, before God created his wife.
- In the DVD extras, it is said that she enjoys long hovers on the beach.
- Like D-FIB, PR-T and NAN-E she is one of the only female robots on the Axiom.
