** Bonus points for drawing a perfect transmutation circle on the ground '''''with her foot''''' while highly limited on time. May [[BadassAdorable clearly knows exactly what she's doing]] here.

** And of course, seeing [[spoiler: Father, now back to his original form as Homunculus, getting punished by all the shit he pulled thorough the series is very satisfying. Specially when Truth says [[IronicHell it is exactly what he wished for]]...]]

* Rose manages to get a surprisingly awesome moment when [[spoiler:Ed is cornered by Sloth and Wrath]]. She [[CallBack echoes some advice]] Ed gave her before, telling him to "get up and move" [[spoiler:when Sloth is about to take him out]], which gives him all the motivation he needs to do exactly that. Ed even thanks her for it afterward, pointing something out that makes it even better: [[spoiler:Rose managed to get her voice back, after being mute due to trauma for months, just to try and help him]].

*** Fire, or, rather, the process of combustion, is essentially the process of oxygen binding itself [[BuffySpeak super quickly]] to just about everything it can reach. Water doesn't burn because it's [=H2O=], or Oxygen that has already been joined to a pair of Hydrogen molecules, hence, already burned. So, with all that water in the room, Mustang simply slices the bonds between the oxygen and hydrogen in the water and has Havoc use his lighter to start the Combustion process and rejoin them. [[StuffBlowingUp All at once.]]

*** The most awesome part of that fight, when Lust asks how he can still move with his wound: "I sealed it with fire!". BAD. ASS.

** In chapter 8 the manga Marcoh, long before his fight with Envy, Marcoh gets to show his chops, ([[CompressedAdaptation which unfortunately was cut from Brotherhood]]) when he is confronted by Lust. Lust skewers Marcoh with her Ultimate Lance in order to interrogate him about the whereabouts of his research notes. However Marcoh uses the blood from his own wound to draw a transmutation circle and skewer Lust herself with a pillar with the intend to kill her. Or course being a Homunculus she [[HealingFactor quickly recovers]] but Marcoh was unaware of that fact and he was still the first person in the series to score a kill shot against one of the Homunculus. In the end Marcoh only gives up his information when Lust threatens to murder a young girl who came to visit him.

All in less than 5 pages. He also gets a minor [=CMoA=] when you see him actually ''lift'' Gluttony into Hawkeye's car.

* Ling gets to kick Gluttony's ass again later on in the story- he convinces Greed that he can fight Gluttony in the dark better than he can, regains control of his body as Gluttony lunges at him from behind... and then grabs the thing by the back of its head and slams it into the ground effortlessly.

* Father's would be when he stamps his foot, and Ed, and Al can no longer perform Alchemy until Father wishes it. The idea that the BigBad is so powerful that even the best alchemist from Amestris are helpless against him is chilling.

*** This is a guy who'd earlier admitted to [[NonActionGuy not being much of a fighter]]. Hohenheim took about [[TookALevelInBadass ten levels in badass]] right there.
** What about the fact that Hohenheim had spent the past couple hundred years [[spoiler:figuring out a way to stop Father's plans]]? It's one of the most subtle and slow-burning moments of awesome ever.



** Riza's friend Rebecca [[http://video.adultswim.com/fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood/a-bunch-of-sissies.html shows up]] with new weapons, an armored ice cream truck, and Maria Ross. Mustang's mysterious benefactor calls him, saying "Serving the community for 80 years, this is Havoc Sundries. From underpants to armored cars, we're your one-stop shop for anything and everything! AND we deliver!". He's even grown a BadassBeard.

** On a related note, Riza knows that [[spoiler:Selim/Pride]] [[ParanoiaFuel can easily be listening in at any time]], so she uses a ''brilliantly'' subtle method to out him to Roy, spelling out a message using the names of their various acquaintances.

*** Something that makes this ''even more'' awesome? Ed states that she read a lot of her parents' medical books growing up, but she's never actually delivered a baby yet, meaning she's effectively doing this ''from memory''. And ''it works''. Not to mention, Winry is clearly nervous, but she still remains considerably calmer than everyone else.
