* Two different Awesome Moments one right after another: [[CombatPragmatist Ling Yao]] gets his fighting [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower King]] [[ImplausibleFencingPowers Bradley]] in a sword fight ''while holding Lan Fan'' after Bradley has grievously injured her. While escaping, Lan Fan tries to kill herself so that she can no longer be a burden to Ling, while Ling tries to stop her. Bradley, following her trail of blood, sees her arm attached to a dog -- Lan Fan had cut her arm off, and escaped into a sewer.

* A 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 Riza [[spoiler: is confronted by none other than Selim aka Pride]], she manages to keep at least a part of her NervesOfSteel and [[spoiler: reminds him that it's not a good tactical move to [[HostageSituation kill her since she's his hostage]].]] She was clearly scared out of her wits, and with '''very''' good reason since [[spoiler: Pride has just told her about his true nature ''and'' has extended a web of {{Living Shadow}}s around her]], but she manages to get out of there pretty much unhurt aside of a cut on her cheek.



* Blink and you'll miss it, but even the ''panda'' gets a moment of awesome in Father's lair during the finale! May was injured and unconscious, and the next time we see her she's waking up in a healing circle with the panda hovering. ''The panda healed her!''

* [[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 respond 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.

** Not only that, he practically made a whole, fail-safe scheme to get her off the hook [[BatmanGambit on the fly]]. Knox wasn't in on the plan, but when saw that the corpse actually wasn't Maria Ross he knew that Roy was up to something, and decided to support him. Roy never directly spoke to Knox until ''after'' the autopsy report was filed.

* 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 clearly seen in how Roy is [[SanitySlippage clearly going more batshit]] as the fight progresses. Therefore the "Moment of Awesome" is not for ''Roy'', but for '''Ed and Riza''' (as their own sections say): 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]].]]

* One of Ed's most awesome and [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] moments happens when he manages to talk out Winry [[spoiler: from killing Scar to avenge her murdered parents.]] Poor Winry [[BreakTheCutie has mentally splintered]], [[spoiler: is about to shoot a man dead and ''not'' just for the lulz]]... and Ed not only talks to her to help her pick up the rest of her heart, but gently makes her open her fingers so they won't [[spoiler: hold the prospect killing weapon]] any longer, and then lets her cry into his chest:
-->"You helped a woman give birth in Rush Valley, and saved her and her baby. You gave me an arm and leg so I could stand again. Your hands aren’t meant [[spoiler: for killing people]]. They’re for helping them live."



* Mustang's response to finally finding the person who killed his best friend: [[ShutUpHannibal "There's no need to say anything more, Envy.]] [[PrepareToDie The first thing I'm gonna turn to ash is your tongue."]] [[CurbStompBattle He then 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]]''.
--> '''Envy''': (burning alive) What's wrong with you!? You didn't even hesitate to incinerate [[spoiler: your best friend]]!?!
--> '''Mustang''': [[spoiler: Maes Hughes]] is dead. That's a fact. And you invoke his image? You must be a glutton for ''punishment''!! (snaps his fingers again)
** The anime [[UpToEleven takes it to eleven]] by having Mustang firing off his flames randomly. It makes the CurbStompBattle look like it's been spiced with a dash of [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill overkill.]]
*** It's like a dead-serious version of Anime!Ed's fight with Anime!Envy.
---> ''*Envy turns into Roy*''
---> '''Edward''': "[[Funny/FullmetalAlchemist You couldn't have picked a better target!]]"
*** Not many men can make a Homunculus look like they've just SHAT themselves. For that, there's Roy.
*** And before that [[ShutUpHannibal "Oh for God's sake, just shut up, idiot!"]]
