* AdaptationalBackstoryChange: It's a relatively minor change, however in the manga Winry's parents died ''after'' Trisha died. In the 2003 anime they died ''before''. This little change causes a big difference in the relationship between the Elric brothers and Winry.

** [[spoiler:Roy]] killed Winry's parents under government order, instead of a vengeful Scar. This is a major change in [[spoiler:Roy's]] background and causes him a lot of pain. It also affects his relationship with Winry compared to the manga.



* AdaptationExpansion: The show either worked in or expanded numerous scenes imported from the manga. Episode 13, "Fullmetal vs. Flame", combines two side stories (Ed vs. Roy and Fury finding a home for Hayate), a 4-koma ("TINY MINISKIRTS!!!"), and Ed's search for information regarding Dr. Marcoh.
