* EldritchAbomination: Evokes [[UncannyValley the same feeling]] with their [[OneWingedAngel true form]].

to:

* EldritchAbomination: Evokes [[UncannyValley the same feeling]] with their [[OneWingedAngel true form]]. Lampshaded when said true form is unveiled, as Ed and Ling are both unable to fathom how what is supposed to be an artificial ''human'' could possibly look like ''that''. The anime drives it home by rendering said true form in ConspicuousCG, making it look creepily out of place and abnormal compared to the rest of the characters.



* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Both of their true forms resemble lizards.

pronouns. For what it's worth, Envy's ''true'' form is most likely a case of NoBiologicalSex.NoBiologicalSex.
* AnimalMotifs: They have a slight reptile motif going on--their true form looks like both a giant lizard and a prehistoric reptomammal, their true ''true'' form is a tiny salamander-like creature and they once tried to kill Ling by turning one of their arms into a snake's head. It's worth noting that the sin of Envy is indeed often associated with reptiles (usually serpents) and its patron demon is Leviathan, an enormous sea monster thought to be inspired by crocodiles.

* SuperSenses: Wrath's Ultimate Eye is literally eyesight to the LogicalExtreme. ''Nothing'' it sees, no matter how small, distant, or mobile, can escape Wrath's perception, and the ouroboros iris's lack of motion suggests that it doesn't need to focus. However, it has the same limitations as a normal eye; it can't see past obstructions, its field of view has the same limitations and blind spots, it can still be overloaded with explosive light, [[spoiler:and it's still susceptible to EyeScream]].



* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Ditching his pride as a homunculus leads to his defeat. When his body starts falling apart, he attempts to possess the body of a creature he looks down on (Ed, a human) to save himself. This act of hypocrisy disgusts the absorbed Kimblee enough for Kimblee to immobilize him, giving Ed an opening to defeat him.]]

** [[spoiler:Pride's also the only homunculus who never quite dies... but being spared by, reborn as, and raised among the humans he despised without any memory of his homunculus pride is probably the most humiliating fate he could have imagined.

* UnskilledButStrong: Envy is a ''terrible'' fighter in the manga/''Brotherhood'' adaption. Thanks to their shapeshifting abilities, and the [[spoiler: sheer weight Envy can put behind every blow]], this doesn't often matter [[spoiler: at least until the encounter with Roy]].

to:

* 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.

Thanks adaption, but thanks to their shapeshifting abilities, abilities and the [[spoiler: sheer [[spoiler:sheer weight Envy can put behind every blow]], this doesn't often matter they're usually on even footing with the heroes. The only exceptions are their manga-only fight with Ling and Lan Fan (who run circles around them due to their combat training), and [[spoiler: at least until the their encounter with Roy]].Roy, who [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope had cast aside his moral restraint]] in favor of using his flame alchemy as relentlessly as possible]].

* Foil: To Edward Elric. [[spoiler:Edward begins his journey trying to recover something that he lost (his mother, then his limbs and his brother's body), relying solely on his own abilities, but eventually understands his pride and by renouncing the lure of Alchemy and accepting his nature as a simple human, he is able to recover his arm and his brother's life. Father earns for something he never had a right to, uses the strenght of others to obtain it, always considered himself above humanity, and, in the end, loses everything he had by not understanding that relying on Alchemy and God stunted his own development. More, Edward frees himself from God and Alchemy. Father returns to it.]]
