* 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.]]

** The idea that The Truth disguised himself as Al makes the scene a bit depressing, but it also makes The Truth's response downright fascinating. You could say it ruins the feeling that Ed talked to his brother, but the look of shock on "Al's" face when Ed bursts through the Gate of Truth makes it all the more ''awesome''. The Truth can't believe what it's seeing. Many people probably saw Al looking down with a smile, assured Ed would eventually come back for him -- but under this interpretation, it almost looks as if The Truth thinks, "You know what, Alchemist? ... I don't even doubt it." [[spoiler:Ed eventually keeps his word; see below for the details.]]

* Scar [[spoiler: killing Shou Tucker.]]



* When Scar is facing Kimblee for the second time (atop a speeding train no less) he's at first outmatched by Kimblee's alchemical skill, while Kimblee taunts him about killing his family - partiuclarly his brother, who was bleeding from a left side wound. Then Scar thinks outside the box and, instead of trying to use his deconstruction again, skewers Kimblee with a pole, which Kimblee definitely wasn't anticipating, and would have killed him if Kimblee hadn't escaped.

* Darius taking on Gluttony when the latter ambushed him, [[spoiler: Greed]], Ed and Heinkel. He goes in with minimal explanation on who Gluttony is, even after seeing his deadly eating abilities, and does it with gusto.

* 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 still miss how how Roy's "badass" rampage is a terrible thing in-story...]] ''even in this very Wiki''.

** Her confrontation with Scar in the north: "Young girl... you have every right to take my life in vengeance." Scar's immobilized and heavily wounded, giving Winry a free shot at avenging her parents. Instead, she ''bandages his arm'', saying that it's what her parents would've done, and then angrily tells Scar that forgiving and enduring are two different things when he misunderstands the gesture. Winry ''completely invalidates'' the worldview of a serial killer who lives and breathes revenge, killed her parents, and attempted to kill her childhood friends several times.
*** And when you take this into account when [[spoiler:Scar's fight with Wrath enters the picture, ''every single hero'' who kills one of Father's children was faced with and overcame that deadly sin. Scar had every reason in the world to kill Wrath in revenge, but his reason for fighting the Führer came down to simply needing to get through him to help the other heroes. Scar fought with restraint and self-defense, and his choice to make use of alchemy during the fight echoes Winry's lesson on enduring without forgiving. In other words, because Winry (and earlier, the Ishvalan elder) showed Scar how to deal with his wounds without resorting to revenge, she is directly responsible for Scar's victory over Wrath.]]

Even though [[TheWorfEffect he did loose lost against scar]], however Scar]], he put up a valiant fight before going down - indeed, part of the reason he lost was because he simply [[DidNotSeeThatComing had no way of knowing what Scar could do.]] That, and if WordOfGod is anything to go by, [[WorfHadTheFlu he might have been dealing with a hangover at the time.]]

* [[DrJerk Dr. Knox]] shows us that doctors [[DeadlyDoctor should not be messed with]]. When May Chang and Lan Fan wake up in the same room, their first response is... to [[SuccessionCrisis try to take each other out]]. Even [[GentleGiant Al]] can't stop them. Right before the situation became grim, the doctor appears, ''[[CurbStompBattle hitting and yelling at them both]]'' and [[FelonyMisdemeanor asking them to stay in beds like the good patients they are]]. When they refuse, the doctor yells at them ''even louder'', then [[ToThePain reminds them that nasty things can be done to them as a doctor]]. Nevertheless, they complied. Also a CrowningMomentOfFunny.

* In the epilogue of the manga, Roy Mustang is suffering a HeroicBSOD due to [[spoiler: his blindness making it impossible for him to continue on his intended path for re-shaping the country, at least until Dr. Marcoh shows up with a Philosopher's Stone to heal him]]. In the ''Brotherhood'' anime, however, this scene plays out a little differently: [[spoiler: When Dr. Marcoh shows up, Mustang is memorizing Ishvalan cultural facts so he can serve as a diplomat and ambassador. That's right - Mustang is such a {{Determinator}} that he won't let blindness stop him from making the world a better place!]] Really, it suits him a lot better.
