* ThouShallNotKill: Refuses to take a life, even when absolutely necessary. As he is quite a skilled fighter, this is not actually a very big problem for him. [[spoiler:This attitude ends when he is forced to kill Greed.]]

* ThouShallNotKill: Refuses to take a life, even when absolutely necessary. As he is quite a skilled fighter, this is not actually a very big problem for him. He'd even try to stop a convicted serial killer [[spoiler:soul transferred to a suit of armor like Al]] from killing himself. [[spoiler:This attitude ends when he is forced to kill Greed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Mostly averted unlike the manga/Brotherhood. He is completely out of his league while fighting Alphonse to the point that even the music turns comical in their fight as Al wipes the floor with him, but the mental blow he strikes Alphonse (telling him his soul and memories are fake) lasts for multiple episodes. And he nearly kills a 12 year old Ed at the beginning of the series along with all the women he butchered, and unlike the manga version of himself, he continues to kill innocents even after the arc he is introduced as a living armor in.

** Though he is noted to be a very special case. Roy says the military doesn't accept children as soldiers. It is only due to Ed's extreme talent and Roy's behind the scenes manipulations that Ed managed to get certified so young.

Added DiffLines:

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Averted. Like the manga, Hawkeye starts the anime with very short cut hair and later grows it out. Unlike the manga, no reason is given for the style change. Its never commented on either.

* InterestingUninterestingSight: Al appears to be a guy in a giant suit of armor walking around when everyone else wears actual clothes, yet rarely does anyone actually comment on it.

* BroughtDownToBadass: During ''Conqueror of Shamballa'' [[spoiler:Ed is stuck in a universe where he can't use alchemy and his automail limbs have been replaced with inferior versions which are made of cheaper materials and require the pulling of a starter cord to function.]] Doesn't slow him down a bit.

* BigLittleBrother: Even before the Transmutation he was still about the same size as Edward, [[spoiler: this is emphasised in the movie where despite having a body six years younger than Ed's at this point he is still about the same height.]]

* HeroKiller: Subverted. While he is a State Alchemist killer, he never actually kills any noteworthy protagonists. Likewise, his first on-screen victim [[spoiler:Basque Grand]] was a serious asshole and a recurring antagonist early on.

* BadassBookworm: It comes with being an alchemist. There is also the moment when he quotes TheArtOfWar in episode 13.
* BadassLongcoat: He is almost always wearing his long, blue military coat.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Her name is not exactly common so for quite a time fans were stumped. Liza, Riza, or Lisa? The official version is "Riza" and the manga even has a reference as "Elizabeth" is a code name, not her real name.

* AdaptationalWimp: At the same time, he is much physically weaker, and less physically impressive compared to the other homunculi. He never went up against an alchemist that used alchemy against him, unlike the other homunculi, or even Manga Envy. And he had no way to bypass Greed's defenses, he needed Sloth's help to take down Greed, yet Greed managed to escape. He was even physically overpowered by Edward twice, while relying on Shapeshifter Guilt-tripping to throw him off guard, whereas Manga Envy didn't even flinch to an automail punching him in the face. He was even caught completely off guard by Hughes, who slashed him in the throat, unlike the Manga Version. Envy is more of a WeakButSkilled category thanks to his better fighting abilities.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: This version of Envy is much more intelligent and manipulative that the manga counterpart.

* AdaptationalVillainy: To a point, mostly in the backstory. In the manga/''Brotherhood'', he [[spoiler:had no idea about Homunculus' plan to sacrifice all of Xerxes to transform himself and Homunculus into living Philosopher's Stone and is just living with the consequences of Homunculus' actions]]. In the 2003 anime however, he [[spoiler:for many years has been willing to sacrifices large populations to create Philosopher's Stone so he can keep on living, just like Father and Dante, and is even implied to have wiped out an entire civilization to make one]]. Likewise, when it comes to his abandoning of the family, his motivations in particular are unfortunately less noble. In the manga/''Brotherhood'', [[spoiler:he left out of necessity to counteract against Father's plans for The Promised Day- something which would have killed his family anyway had he not done anything]], while in the 2003 anime [[spoiler:he just didn't want Trisha and children to know his true nature, and for that reason abandoned them. He wasn't even aware for quite some time of Dante's plans for his children, and potentially wouldn't have intervened if they hadn't involved them]]. However, by the time the series starts he's settled down with Trisha, he's no longer walking this rather dark path. He is by no means an antagonist (or even a bad guy at this point the series starts), however, he certainly is ''not'' the BigGood he was in his manga and ''Brotherhood'' counterpart.

* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:Like Hohenheim, due to centuries of BodySurfing, her soul has become weaker due to leaving small fragments behind every time she jumps. This causes her body to begin to rot, regardless of how young it is. To hide this, she like Hohenheim wears very covering clothes and strong perfume to hide the smell of rot. According to Hohenheim, even if she were to create a Philosopher's Stone, she would still be unable to escape this fate, and every time she jumps, it will take less and less time for her body to break down. She never really comes up with a solution for this and seems to be in denial.]]

* LeitMotif: Unlike most characters, she has a unique, distinctive theme. As you can imagine, it's a pretty clear sign from her first appearence there's much more to her character than meets the eye.
