* StarterVillain: Just like in the manga and Brotherhood, he is the first villain to be confronted by the Elrics. Naturally, he's also the easiest defeated.

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Despite starting the Ishvalan civil war, beating Ed to a pulp multiple times (and eventually brutally killing him ''and'' Major Hughes, one of the series' most sympathetic characters), causing a lethal epidemic in a small village, and being an all-round sordid {{Jerkass}} Envy gets a relatively happy ending. After 400 years of doing whatever he wants, punting countless puppies, he more or less gets off scot free. Sure, he dies, but it happens while his life's greatest wish is being fulfilled, so it couldn't be considered comeuppance by any standard. Perhaps, in response to this, the author made ''sure'' Envy got what was coming to him in the manga and ''Brotherhood'' anime in an absolutely spectacular fashion.]]

* MulticoloredHair: A downplayed example, but in this version, Havoc's bangs are dirty blond while the back of his hair is more of a light brown color. His hair is more uniform in ''Brotherhood''.



* TeamMom: A downplayed example, considering her very minor role, but in this version of the anime, Maria has a few more scenes expressing concern for the Elric brothers, and she delivers the CooldownHug to Ed.

* AdaptationalDumbass: Alphonse starts off as an intelligent, insightful young boy who was the [[StraightMan sensible one]] compared to Ed. Later on, he makes many very poor, and arguably stupid, choices, like taking [[KnifeNut Barry the Chopper's]] mind games to heart, and distrusting people who he's known all his life. This happens in both the manga and anime, but in the manga, Al learns from this and doesn't do anything like it again. In the first anime, it mainly takes effect in the later half, where he runs off every time he gets upset, even though the Homunculi [[spoiler: and Dante]] are looking for and trying to kill them, going along with Shou Tucker's plans and not telling Ed (even though Tucker [[spoiler:made his daughter into a chimaera, resulting in her death]], and letting Sloth convince him that she's his mother, even though she is a Homunculi when Ed is trying to remind him that they're fighting for their lives, [[spoiler:immediately running towards Envy disguised as Winry, right after Ed says it isn't her, and barely putting up a fight.]] He arguably became more impulsive than his brother, whereas earlier in the show it was the other way around. This could be interpreted as the writers having Al act more like how a real little boy would if they were put in such a situation, [[spoiler:but he becomes more competent again in the finale]]. Other than that he basically becomes [[TheLoad quite the load]].

Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: [[spoiler:The lecture she gives Ed and Al about how EquivalentExchange (in terms of being a principle for life, outside of its use in alchemy) is nothing but a wishful fantasy. The fact is that, yeah, she's right that there are a lot of times in life where the effort you put into something is disproportionate to what you get out of it (for example, she talks about how Ed, as a ChildProdigy, passed the State Alchemist exam with flying colors on his first try, while others had been slaving away and repeatedly failing it for years). Hohenheim later gives Ed a more optimistic take on it]].

* FantasticRacism: In addition to her affiliation with the Nazies, Eckhart fears the 2003 FMA world because of their ability to use alchemy and loses all excitement for using their abilities for her own plans to conquer her world and instead [[spoiler:tries to destroy them out of fear]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: Once willing to use the mystical powers of Shamballa to help the Nazies conquer the world, when Eckhart realizes the other world holds people capable of using alchemy, she becomes terrified of their power and [[spoiler:tries to kill them all to stop a potential invasion of her world]].

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Both versions of Ed are quite attractive but in subtly different ways. Manga and Brotherhood Ed is more muscular and toned while this Ed is more slender in physique with his features overall less broad, giving him a look more fitting of a bishounen.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga he's noted for having ''golden'', not blond, hair as [[spoiler:a racial trait related to his heritage]]. This is absent in the anime and thus Edward is just a normal blond.



* {{Bishonen}}: More so than in the ''Manga/Brotherhood''. In the manga, Ed has a more pronounced jawline, making him look more physically mature. This trait is lost in the 2003 anime.

** 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.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: YMMV on whether or not this version of Envy looks better in his preferred form than his more muscular Brotherhood appearance. This Envy's features are more delicate and his eyes are thinner, giving him a more mature look. This fits Envy's more impressive personality (see next trope) as this version can actually back up all his talk, making him genuinely confident and even somewhat suave.
** Between his "true" forms, 2003's [[spoiler: LongHairedPrettyBoy]] look and Brotherhood's [[spoiler:worm-like appearance]] the former is the clear victor.
