* Perhaps Ed's most famous Berserk Button is any mention of his [[TheNapoleon vertical deficiencies]]. He usually ends up exaggerating the insult to ridiculous extremes as well as whooping the ass of the offender. The only one he won't go nuts on is Al (after all, they're brothers...and someone has to keep him in line), and even ''he'' got away with a knock on the head and a retort of "Don't call me small." Of course, the short rants are constantly a CrowningMomentOfFunny.

* Do NOT bring up the human transmutation incident with either of the brothers. Especially if you're doing it to claim that they're [[NotSoDifferent no different than you]]. This one very nearly got Shou Tucker killed when the two learned of [[spoiler:his horrible act of fusing his daughter Nina with her dog]], shortly before [[spoiler:Scar finished the job and put his chimera out of its misery]].

* What it says up there for Roy Mustang regarding Riza Hawkeye? It goes the other way too. She's not BodyguardingABadass for nothing.

* Ed and Al share a minor (in Al's case, not so minor for quite a while) one that is labeled "Pointing out how GREAT it actually is being a soul trapped in a suit of armor". It led to one pretty not-so-nice brother fight.

* Also, don't suggest that [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Winry is his girlfriend.]] At the same time, however, don't even ''think'' about harming a single hair on her head... because Ed will ''kick your '''ass'''''. Like the narrator in ''Brotherhood'' says, [[DeclarationOfProtection he will do anything to protect her]].
* Don't touch his little brother Alphonse either.
* Also, he really, ''really'' [[DoesNotLikeSpam hates milk]]. [[FridgeLogic Possibly in relation to his... height issues]].

* Don't imply that you're attracted to Riza Hawkeye, or mess with her in any way, shape or form. In the manga, Barry the Chopper declares that he's in love with Riza (because she shot at him instead of screaming in terror). Then he makes the mistake of putting his hand on her waist, clearly against her wishes, in front of Roy.
-->'''Roy:''' ''[[CrazyJealousGuy *literally growling, eyes on fire*]]'' Stand aside, Lieutenant... there's going to be a ''fire'' tonight.
* Don't hurt his subordinates. He hand-picked those five soldiers for a reason and they are his ''family''. He has no problem with tearing across town and jeopardizing a secret mission if any of them are in danger.
* And don't let him find out that you're the one who [[spoiler:murdered his best friend]]. ''Nothing'' will save you.

** The human transmutation incident is also not a good thing to bring up with either of the Elric brothers. When Shou Tucker, who had already [[spoiler:fused Nina with her dog Alexander in a horrible crossing of the MoralEventHorizon]] brought it up in an attempt to imply that he and Ed were NotSoDifferent, it led to a vicious NoHoldsBarredBeatdown by Ed, who came very close to ''killing him'', followed by a soft-spoken warning from Alphonse that Tucker needed to stop talking.



* Do ''not'' mess with Greed's "[[IJustWantToHaveFriends possessions]]".
* Don't ''ever'' insult Hohenheim's sons.
