* FauxAffablyEvil: Oh, so much. She can come on so damn sizzling and flirty. Before the knives come out.
* FemmeFatalons: Speaking of knives... she has ten epic ones only a moment away.

* LadyOfWar: Oh, yes. So very, very much. She's as graceful as she is devastating, and she lives for the chaos that is war.

* NumberTwo: PlayedWith. Early on in the series she's without a doubt the most notable antagonist of the Homunculi, and is the one who personally coordinates their efforts to manipulate alchemists to advance the plot. However, this is later downplayed once it's revealed that Wrath [[spoiler:is King Bradley and is doing this on a national level]] and that Pride [[spoiler:is posing as his kid and is the true personal coordinator of the Homunculi's individual approach to alchemists]].

* RasputinianDeath: [[spoiler: Ye gads, but it's almost painful to watch her getting repeatedly roasted like that, even though you know just how evil she is.]]

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



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



* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:Inverted/Played with. She's one of the most {{Badass}} Homunculi, yet was killed fairly early on to show that Mustang does ''not'' screw around. It's worth noting that her death is also the first real setback that Father has suffered in four hundred years.]]

* {{Badass}}: Actually defying Father took guts.



* BenevolentBoss: To his minions--or, as he calls them, "possessions".

to:

* BrassBalls: Defying Father took guts. Doing so while chained up an about to be melted down? Even more so.
* BenevolentBoss: To his minions--or, as he calls them, "possessions". He treats them well; much better than Father in any case.



*EvilVirtues: His greed translates into intense protectiveness towards his minions/friends because he considers them to be possessions. Thus, threats against them are seen by him as "stealing".



* {{Greed}}: Obviously.

to:

* {{Greed}}: Obviously. He wants everything.



* {{Badass}}: The only character who can fight toe-to-toe against Wrath. In addition, he still has the balls to defy Father ''again'' and has gained new ones this time [[spoiler:to openly [[TakingYouWithMe attack]]]] him.



* {{Badass}}: to the point where most characters dread the idea of facing him in combat. To cite, he destroyed a ''tank'' with a '''sword'''. Also, [[spoiler:he takes on Fu, 2nd Greed and Buccaneer at the same time with ''paper-cutters'' and '''wins''' until they must stab through Fu to even land a hit.]]



* TheDreaded:
** Probably best shown late in the 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.]]
** [[spoiler:Probably even more than [[EldritchAbomination Pride]], given Edward still dared and managed to fight off Pride. ''No one'' who faced Bradley in combat came out unscathed.]]

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: He's a human-homunculus hybrid, so he's in a league of his own. He's also one of the characters that get to kick the most ass.

* {{Badass}}: Let this sink in for a moment: Wrath is afraid of this guy.



* BadassLabcoat:
** An old skinny man who nevertheless shows no fear when confronted by [[PersonOfMassDestruction Roy]], [[{{Badass}} Ed]], [[HeroKiller Scar]], [[ColdSniper Riza]], and the Chimeras, stays totally cool under fire, and manages to defeat them through careful planning and the judicious use of {{Elite Mooks}}. He's repulsive, but that earns him some {{badass}} cred.
** [[spoiler:He does change his tune to reveal his TrueColors as a DirtyCoward once Jerso manages to capture him]], making him more of a SmugSnake if anything.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: By no means is Gluttony handsome, but his Brotherhood incarnation is less drool-prone and this one's 'alternate form' is much less grotesque than the white version of Envy that the 2003 version used.

** PlayedForLaughs in Brotherhood; the [[CurbStompBattle "fight"]] between him and Roy basically consists of [[spoiler: Envy starting to say something, getting the shit burned out of them, and then running as far and as fast as they can]]. Rinse and repeat.

** 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 & Brotherhood treats them as indeed having substance. of course, he ''is'' an EldritchAbomination.

* WalkingSpoiler: The fact that he has no image here and that several parts of his entry are completely whited out in regards to [[spoiler: his identity]] should be a big enough cause for this. When Wrath ''does'' finally show up, it turns the whole of the manga on it's head.

* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Envy's repeated attempts to KickTheDog continues to backfire [[spoiler: during their fight with Mustang. First by taking the form of Hughes 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.]]

* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:In contrast to the 2003 series, Envy in Brotherhood is a borderline ButtMonkey. The only time they actually win a fight is when [[WorfHadTheFlu Ed had broke his automail arm.]] Dr. Marcoh completely immobilizes them ''twice''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Near the end of the series, Ed asked why Pride blindly follows [[BigBad Father.]] Although he followed with a ShutUpKirk, that marks the beginning of his VillainousBreakdown.
-->'''Ed:''' Never... I'll never understand it. Why do you keep following him? Look at what we've done to you. You've got one foot in the grave and he didn't as much turn back to look at you.
-->'''Pride:''' [[ShutUpKirk SO WHAT?! Don't think of us Homunculi as the same as you humans!]]
