* AffablyEvil: He's pretty friendly when you get to know him, and that friendliness does not appear to be an act. Heck, the guy is even [[spoiler:a family man]]! However, he subverts this later on as we see him remorselessly KickTheDog numerous times... showing that most of it was probably [[FauxAffablyEvil an act]].

* DrivenByEnvy: Ed comes to the conclusion that this is the real reason behind Envy's hatred for human. [[spoiler:Envy is jealous of humans' strength and ability to make friends. This realization makes Envy feel so humiliated that they kill themself.]]

* TinMan:
** Although he claims to have no emotions he actually does display them, sometimes as seemingly friendly ditziness, but also anger and great cruelty. If anything, it's more like his emotions are fairly low key. Hohenheim points out that while he claims to not want a family, the fact that he created seven "children" and had them call him Father betray his motives.
** Which takes Envy's existence into FridgeBrilliance if you think about it.
** It also foreshadows that Greed actually wants friends since he acts friendly after absorbing Greed; once he gives Greed to Ling he becomes a monster again.

* DemotedToExtra: She's a much less developed character in ''Brotherhood'' than she is in the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]]. Here she's a FemmeFatale villain. In the 2003 anime, she is [[spoiler:a Homunculus formed from Scar's brother's girlfriend and eventually switches sides.]]



* VillainousFriendship: With Lust.

* AbusiveParent:
** Burning Greed alive in a vat of molten metal, for one thing. He raises his children specifically to act as pawns in his plan.
** He doesn't care when any of the homunculi die. He just [[PragmaticVillainy keeps them around because they're useful.]] [[spoiler:Ed eventually points this out to the physically crumbling Pride, whom Father abandons in order to go replenish his own philosopher's stone.]]

* BrassBalls: Defying Father took guts. Doing so while chained up an about to be melted down? Even more so.

* TokenHeroicOrc: Rather than blindly obeying his creator, his greedy nature got the better of him, and he'll do whatever it takes to get what he wants. He's AffablyEvil and treats his gang of human followers well, rather than as pawns to be sacrificed.

** Though it's stated numerous times that Father has expelled all of his sins, it's interesting to note he acts in a way similar to that of the sins: He seeks power at all costs (Greed); views humans as "ants" (Pride); devours his home cooked meals with no self control (Gluttony); has a desire for a family like humans (Envy); prefers to let others do his bidding for him (Sloth); feels anger towards any opposition, principally Hohenheim (Wrath); and shows complete disregard and manipulation of human beings (Lust); so perhaps he didn't really lose them. Which leads us to…

** Though it's stated numerous times that Father has expelled all of his sins, it's interesting to note he acts in a way similar to that still commits them: he wants all of the sins: He seeks power at all costs (Greed); knowledge in the world for himself (greed) which Truth would label as taking more than his fair share (gluttony); views himself as far above the humans as "ants" (Pride); devours his home cooked meals with no self control (Gluttony); has a desire for a who created him (pride) but secretly wants the human construct of family like humans (Envy); prefers (envy); refuses to let others do take an active role in his bidding for him (Sloth); feels anger towards any opposition, principally Hohenheim (Wrath); and shows complete disregard and manipulation own plans until he has no other choice (sloth); slaughters millions of human beings (Lust); so perhaps innocent people without justice or restraint (wrath); and, although he's [[BizarreAlienBiology most likely asexual]], [[spoiler:he has a very visceral, "pleasures-of-the-flesh" reaction when he didn't really lose them. Which leads us to…activates the national transmutation circle]] (lust).

* SevenDeadlySins: Each of their code names ([[spoiler:only King Bradley and Selim have names to the public eye, and Lust goes by Solaris at one point]]) are named after one because they are split from Father in order to become the perfect being. [[spoiler: Almost all of them die in manners similar to the punishments in ''Dante's Inferno'', with the exception of Envy.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Subverted. For all his blatant misanthropy, Pride manages to subvert this to a certain degree. Alphonse points out that a glaring flaw the Homunculi's plan to use him and Ed [[spoiler: as sacrifices]] is that they could've easily fled to another country or something. Pride admits that there are some genuinely selfless humans out there who are willing to give up everything to protect the things they love, such as [[spoiler: Wrath's wife, who once tried to save Pride from being hit by a car]]. He says Ed and Al are a step up from them. The Homunculi knew they would never have abandoned Amestris and, in fact, went as far as to bring the fight to them.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:As she dies, she says she looks forward to the day that Roy's eyes are "clouded with agony". During the finale, Roy is forced to perform Human Transmutation and has his sight taken as a price.]]



* StealthPun / VisualPun: [[spoiler: Envy, the big green monster.]]



* UncannyValley: {{Invoked}} before their fight with Mustang, when Envy transforms into [[spoiler:Gracia Hughes to prove to Roy that they killed her husband]]. Normally, Envy will copy their subject down to the last detail, but this time, ''they keep their own face'' as they gloat and brag. It's ''extremely'' unsettling, both for the viewer and for the characters present, to see Envy's manic, bugged-out eyes and gaping SlasherSmile on a pixel-perfect recreation of one of the most subdued, kind characters in the series.

* BookEnds: [[spoiler: Is both the first and last of the "sin" homunculi to die in the series.]]
* ByronicHero: He starts off like this: charismatic, rebellious, and mainly acts on his own whims. His conversations with Ling also resemble internal conflict. However, he loses the villainous aspects of it post-CharacterDevelopment.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: It [[DracoInLeatherPants backfired pretty badly]], but Envy's clearly meant to be this--sadistic, murderous, spiteful, obnoxious and full of themself, Envy's clearly not meant to be liked.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousFriendship: While not quite as close with them as they are with each other, Envy seems to have this with Lust and Gluttony. It's probably the only redeeming quality they have.
