* After Lust tears a water pipe and drenches Mustang, he reveals he ''isn't'' so useless with water. After all, his transmutation circle moves oxygen. And water has plenty of oxygen in it. Or, more importantly... '''[[MadeOfExplodium hydrogen]]'''. And Havoc has a lighter. [[http://video.adultswim.com/fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood/got-a-light.html See where I'm going with this?]] [[StuffBlowingUp KABOOM!]]
** Actually it separates hydrogen from oxygen which if you have ever done that, and then tried to light it, it makes a HUGE explosion. Which is what happened to not so poor Lust.

* A very minor one, but in the manga when Shou Tucker continues reaming Ed with his NotSoDifferent lecture ''even after'' Ed nearly beats him to death, Al gives him a perfect ShutUpHannibal counter by warning him that if he goes on it any longer, this time ''he'll'' be the one laying into him rather than Ed.

* Doesn't the author herself, Hiromu Arakawa, deserve a mention for her story-telling? She took the concept of revenge, and clearly defined it, something that Masashi Kishimoto is still working on in ''{{Naruto}}'', and shows it through Roy Mustang and Scar as the story progresses.

* Horribly, horribly subverted in Mustang's response to finally finding the person who killed his best friend. It seems like this is taking place when [[CurbStompBattle he proceeds to fuck Envy up]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge fifty ways to Sunday]], including, but not limited to: evaporating the fluid in his eyes ''twice'', thanking him for turning into his monstrous true form because it makes him a bigger target, blasting his lower jaw off to shut him up (just like he promised), and torching him ''while he looked like [[spoiler:Hughes]]''... But the reader/viewer ''is NOT supposed to be cheering for Roy'', but to be '''worried''' because he is about to become HeWhoFightsMonsters and ''completely'' lose what's left of his sanity and morals, which is seen in how Roy [[SanitySlippage clearly goes more and more batshit]] as the fight progresses. Therefore the "Moment of Awesome" is not exactly for ''Roy'', but for '''Ed and Riza''': they tell him that yes, Envy has done everything in his powers to deserve the death Roy wants so badly to deal to him... but then they add that if he does it, '''he will betray the ideals that he, the dead [[spoiler: Hughes]] and others have upheld for years'''. [[spoiler: And then Envy kills himself anyway, which [[FridgeBrilliance is actually a much more fitting end for him]].]] But some fans [[MisaimedFandom keep cheering at Roy's nightmare-ish self-destuctive spiral, gunning for him to lose himself to his darkness, and getting angry at Riza and Ed for not enabling him.]] '''Even in this very Wiki'''.
%%It's best to stop justifying Roy's rampage, specially when canon paints it as a bad thing. It has been discussed to death and it might lead to an Administrivia/EditWar%%

** Then again, a fair share of the fandom cheered when Roy cut lose and utterly '''obliterates''' Envy as mentioned above. Additionally, a smaller fraction of the fandom was pissed when Ed and Riza talked him out of his murderous rampage because they wanted to see Envy being grilled to death.

** Scar's dispatching of Basque Grand is pretty awesome too. Gran is a feared hand-to-hand combatant and, when they meet, is in possession of Dr. Marcoh's powerful Philosopher's Stone copy, which previously has enabled Grand to transform into a human buttkicking machine. Scar, however, eliminates him as easily as if he's blowing his nose.
** The Scar vs. Grand fight in ''Brotherhood'' is also quite cool for both combatants. In this incarnation, Grand's alchemy allows him to summon cannons, maces, and bladed chains to throw at Scar. When Scar sidesteps this onslaught, Grand traps Scar in a giant iron box. Against almost anyone else, this probably would've been a victory for Grand right there. Unfortunately, he doesn't actually know what Scar can do, and gets a little too close to the box, allowing Scar to just blow a hole in the cage and [[YourHeadAsplode do his thing with Grand's head]]. This fight is especially nice for fans of Grand; because in the manga, he was revealed, in an {{omake}} no less, to have been taken out in a sneak attack while walking home. In this version, at least he doesn't go out like a chump.

* Even the ''TeamPet panda'' gets a moment of awesome in Father's lair during the finale! May was injured and unconscious, and the next time she's seen he's waking up in a healing circle with Shao May hovering. ''TShao healed her!''

* When his and Al's alchemy stops working in episode 28, he decides to turn the fight against the Homunculi around... bu using Scar. [[spoiler: He tells him about how the Ishvalan War started because of Envy, who disguised himself as a soldier and shot an Ishvalan child. He does this knowing full well that Scar's rage, plus his power, would be more than enough to defeat the Homunculi.]]



* When [[spoiler:Kimblee blows up the ground to escape from a fight in Episode 41, Ed falls through to a mine and wakes up impaled with a metal pipe. He's saved the lives of two of Kimblee's chimera soldiers, who free themselves from the rubble and go over to Ed to see if he's alive. Ed asks them to pull the pipe out so he can transmute his life to stem the flow of blood. When they do, it hurts even to watch, but it's pretty damn amazing once you realize how much pain he was in.]]
