What's with this "Son of Man" phrase that JRPGs and anime and presumably other things sometimes use? Does it make a lot of sense in Japanese or am I missing a localization to a proper reference to some biblical thing? It's generally used by powerful entities to refer to some mere human teenager that's out to defy fate or the universe, so it's in pretty much every SMT game. I'm kind of surprised it's not in Evangelion, or maybe it is and I just forgot.

It means you're a child of humans, meaning you're an ordinary being, and not the offspring of a divine being.

what a funny way to say mortal

It was imported into Japanese, not the other way around. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Son_of_man Japanese uses 人の子, a literal translation.

They use "Lilin" instead which is probably also some ancient Hebrew thing.

Ah, yeah I figured it was something like this. I think Lilin is related to Lilith who was going to be Adam's wife in some tellings of that creation story and of course both of those names are in Eva

This is actually always used in Arabic, when someone do something cool/manly, that's can be said to him as a praise.
