* WeHardlyKnewYe: Has the least screentime out of all of the Homunculi, though what characterization he does get is certainly effective.

* InfantImmortality: He [[spoiler:is the only homunculus who looks like a child, and also the only homunculus who survives...sort of.]] Additionally, when the other Homunculi fight they are frequently wounded, [[GoodThingYouCanHeal usually graphically]], but not so much with Pride, who just gets scuffed up a bit.

The latter may be justified, as Pride is considered the most powerful of the bunch.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: A subtle example, but one that shows off just how powerful he really is--whereas all the other Homunculi have been hit with horrible lacerations or killed repeatedly in gruesome ways, Pride only ever got some light scuffs and rips and/or dust on his clothes. The kid's indestructible.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Envy seems to be under the impression that they can insult people as much as they want and said people will just sit there and cry about it. Instead, their insults are met with retaliation, as should be expected when you insult someone who can and ''will'' fight back.

* TheBrute: Arguably. Envy's got a HairTriggerTemper, a profoundly limited sense of subtlety, relies on brute force in combat, and seems to be relatively low on the Homunculi totem pole. [[spoiler:They are also the biggest homunculus]].

* RelationshipUpgrade: Non-romantic variety with Ling. (See VitriolicBestBuds below.) After the timeskip, Greed uses Ling's [[FirstNameBasis first name]] and calls him "partner", or "brat" when in {{Jerkass}} mode. That's a huge change compared to the times when Ling was callously referred as "that guy" or "the owner of this body".

* WouldntHitAGirl: "I don't fight women, I'm not that kind of guy." Granted, he has never fought a woman before, so it's only implied.

* FatalFlaw: Naturally, his laziness. [[spoiler: It's revealed in his final fight that Sloth is actually super-fast, making him one of the most dangerous Homunculi to face in combat. In hindsight, this means that if he just used this ability to his advantage or actually put some thought into his combat strategies, he could conceivably have won every fight he was in before this, but actually using his super-speed and thinking both require too much effort.]]
* FlatCharacter: The least fleshed out of all the Homunculi. His only real personality trait is that he's lazy.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:He dies happy that he has an excuse to just not work anymore.]]
* HeavySleeper: When he's out for the count, getting him back on his feet takes ''massive'' amounts of bullying from Pride. Heck, even a tank barely registers as an alarm clock.

** Wrath can ''still'' kick serious ass despite being out of his prime by a good degree. None of the other characters could beat him at his best. In order for [[spoiler: Scar]] to even be on equal footing, Wrath had to be ''half dead''.

* DevourTheDragon: Repeatedly. Pride callously murders [[spoiler:Gluttony, Kimblee (though in this case, he was already dying), and the alchemic doctor]] to gain their abilities and/or knowledge. To make it creepier, he wasn't actually doing it to be mean, he was imitating his father!

** For all his talks about how worthless humans are, he at the end is willing to [[spoiler:steal Edward's body]] just to escape his predicament, to keep himself from dying. [[spoiler:This disgusts [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Kimblee]] into stopping him from within.]]

* FeedItaBomb: [[spoiler: If Envy stops to open his mouth during his fight against Mustang, you can almost guarantee that Mustang will cause it to explode before Envy can even finish half of his sentence. If Mustang isn't aiming for his eyes or incinerating him entirely.]]



* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:A giant green monster.]]

* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:A giant green monster. Not that it helped. It actually provided Mustang with a bigger target, allowing him to more easily scorch Envy's eyes until he retreated.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: [[spoiler: Completely, utterly, and painfully averted. During Envy's fight with Mustang and Hawkeye, every time Envy opened his mouth to threaten or gloat, Mustang used that opportunity to torch Envy in the face (especially the eyes or tongue)]]

* DarkIsNotEvil: Greed, who made a HeelFaceTurn [[spoiler:twice]]. And Sloth isn't actively malevolent, he just wants to sleep and (fitting the Christian definition of his sin) is too lazy to think much about the moral implications of his actions. Gluttony may be too dumb to know exactly what he's doing, but still belongs more in "evil" than "good".

* FatalFlaw: Their belief in their invulnerability. While they are [[HealingFactor much harder to kill than an ordinary human]], they're by no means indestructible (see LogicalWeakness below). In combat, they're more likely to simply take incoming hits and heal rather than dodge, which causes them to burn through their energy reserves faster. Additionally, this belief has allowed the heroes to get the drop on them many times.

* LogicalWeakness: Despite their incredible powers, the Philosopher's Stone's that power them are still a finite energy source, meaning they can be beaten through [[ZergRush sheer attrition]], [[spoiler: such as Mustang repeatedly incinerating Lust and Envy until they couldn't regenerate any more. Even [[BigBad Father]] isn't able to hold out for more than a few minutes against the combined assault of Ed, Izumi, Mustang, Armstrong, Greed/Ling, Lan Fan, Darius, Zampano and the [[BadassArmy Briggs troops]].]]

* 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 exception of Envy.]]

* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Envy's repeated attempts to KickTheDog continues to backfire [[spoiler: during their fight with Mustang. First by taking the form of Hughes's wife, then Hughes himself, and then attempting to kill Riza. All this does is infuriate Mustang more and make the NoHoldsBarredBeatdown that Envy suffers worse.]]
