Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeDoormat: Does whatever Father tells him, simply because it's too much effort to argue.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LaboriousLaziness: Maybe one of the most extreme examples. Sloth spends most of the series in chains, forced to perform thankless, back-breakingly hard physical labor. Why? He's too lazy to argue the point or say no to Father. It's easier to just obey orders and work.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Whenever she's damaged, she always regenerates one of her arms first, so she can promptly counter attack.

Added DiffLines:

* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: If the Seven Homunculus were truly born from Father's desires, then this might be a possibility of his desire to become god. Greed admitted that all he truly wanted was friends and Edward realized that Envy was jealous of humans' inner strenght and the fact they support each other no matter what, so Father might have a serious case of inferiority complex, and thus tried to compensate it by growing a superiority complex and trying to become a perfect being.

* 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 NoHoldsBeatdown that Envy suffers worst.]]
%%* DoesNotLikeShoes
* DirtyCoward: They act like a big shot and take every possible opportunity to KickTheDog... until they're on the losing end of a fight. The best example of Envy's cowardice is its "fight" with Roy Mustang; [[spoiler: they reveal that ''they'' were the ones who killed Maes Hughes and gloat about it... and the minute they realize what a bad idea that was, spend the entirety of said "fight" running in fear from the conflict they willingly brought upon themselves]].

* NighInvulnerable: As {{Humanoid Abomination}}s, each with a unique ability and every one possessing an ''insane'' HealingFactor, even Gluttony is this by default.



* {{Determinator}}: Takes a ridiculous amount of punishment before she even starts to consider dying.



* TheDreaded: A prime example is seen in manga/''Brotherhood''. The Briggs men have won, while Wrath [[spoiler: had his train blown up in the middle of a bridge several episodes earlier, presumably killing him, and in any case leaving him missing in action. Then his voice, perfectly calm and even pleasant, is heard over the radio, telling them that now he's back, and he's rather displeased with what's been happening in his absence]]. Everybody who hears the broadcast looks to have just [[OhCrap soiled themselves.]]

Even [[ColonelBadass Roy]] noted that he's confident enough to hold his own against 2 State Alchemists with just a single sword.

* ShapeshifterBaggage:
** Seemingly played straight, unlike Envy above. Drawing his shadow back into his "container" doesn't seem to affect his weight or mass at all, despite the fact that the shadow itself is large enough to extend throughout the tunnel of the nationwide transmutation circle. One could make the argument that they are mass-less and weight-less due to being shadows, but the manga and ''Brotherhood'' treats them as indeed having substance. of course, he ''is'' an EldritchAbomination.

* SuperpowerLottery: He's TheDreaded for a reason. Between his homunculi-standard regeneration, his shadow manipulation, and his MegaManning, this guy won. He's miles more powerful than any other character except for Hohenheim and Father, who are basically immortal near-demigods.
