For being a show with some long TearJerker and NightmareFuel pages, Manga/FullmetalAlchemist has a truckload of absolutely ''epic'' moments to balance things out.

** Hohenheim destroys Father's container by letting Father absorb some souls from him. How did that destroy Father's container? Hohenheim [[http://video.adultswim.com/fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood/tortured-souls.html had gotten to know each and every person within his body.]] Whereas Father saw the Philosopher's Stone only as a bundle of energy, Hohenheim like Al saw that the Philosopher's Stone contained people. Who were really pissed off at Father for ripping their souls out of their body and stuffing them in Hohenheim for over 500 years. The souls then rip Father apart from the inside. [[HopeSpot Too bad]] Father no longer needed his container.

** The way he defeated #48 by using ''Scar's'' alchemy technique.
*** There's also the PreAssKickingOneLiner. Since #48 is actually the souls of two murderer brothers bound to one suit of armor (Ed defeats one by knocking off the head containing the blood seal, but his brother, whose seal is on his body, simply picks it up and replaces it). The second brother, moving in for the killing blow, yells "This is for my brother!" Ed, injured and with his automail failing, almost gives up, but then he thinks of Al (who will be stuck forever as a suit of armor if Ed dies here) and enters his HeroicSecondWind with a shout of "And ''this'' is for ''mine''!" [[HilarityEnsues Asskicking ensues.]]

--> '''Kimblee''': At the end of the day, a human being is not much more than the components used to create a common bomb. If you think about it we're not that special, not you, not me, we're all empty. We're all worthless.

* Pride [[DevourTheDragon eating Gluttony]] was a KickTheDog moment and terrifying, sure. But it also went to show how BadAss and deadly he is, as did his epic fight with Kimblee against Al.

* Lust is one of the most {{badass}} characters in the series. She blows things up. Nearly oneshots Roy's ENTIRE team (sure she may have failed but she gets points there). Hell, she fuelled the awesome during her battle with Roy. She also attacked Scar and nearly killed him, sparing the Elric brothers. And winning against Marcoh and threatening him.

* Izumi Curtis taking on ''the entire military'' including the powerful alchemist [[ColonelBadass Alex Armstrong]], at the same time, in order [[MamaBear to get Wrath back from them]] [[OneManArmy and almost succeeding]] was extremely BadAss.

** Manga-only, but Ling's sense of honor and duty really shines at one point in the siege at Central HQ. [[spoiler:After getting a HeroicBSOD over his inability to heal his allies with his Philosopher's Stone, a dying Buccaneer asks him to defend the gate against the Central troops, stressing that with their dwindling ammunition, Ling is the only one who can do it. Ling immediately asks Greed to lend him his powers notable not just for Greed's casual permission, but that Ling wanted to repay his allies himself rather than ask someone else to do the work.]] And then there's this exchange:
---->'''Buccaneer''': Will he [Greed] help?
---->'''Ling''': Yes. I promise. ''(He begins armoring up and advances on the Central troops)'' [[GameFace And the people of Xing]] ''[[GameFace always]]'' [[GameFace keep their promises.]]

* Basque Grand; [[ExtraOreDinary The Iron Blood Alchemist]], [[TheWorfEffect he did loose against scar]], however his alchemy involves making functioning cannons. [[FridgeLogic In order to do this he would have to make all the moving parts, chemicals, and cannonballs]]. Most alchemist make only one element/compound, the Elric brothers radio repairs, may in fact be MundaneUtility.

*** Plus the fact that he carved the transmutation circle for his flame alchemy into the back of his hand in order to be able to seal his and Havoc's wounds. To be able to flawlessly recreate such a complex design by ''carving it into his own hand'', while nearly passing out from both pain and blood loss, is nothing short of incredible.

* 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.
