* BigScrewedUpFamily: Ling comes from a family system that seems to aim to produce as many children as possible and then force said siblings to fight for their inheritance.

* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Averted, interestingly. Unlike Ed (who actively denies that he and Winry are romantically linked), Roy (who rarely talks about how deep his feelings for Riza are) and Alphonse (who doesn't yet know how he feels about Mei) Ling doesn't deny that he has feelings for Lan Fan when Greed brings up the possibility. Although he does it in a somewhat sarcastic-sounding way.

* BookEnds: His story of revenge begins when he wakes up after being saved by the Rockbells and discovers that his country has been destroyed, and ends when he wakes up in the Armstrong mansion and is offered the chance to rebuild his people. [[spoiler: A key difference is that in the first one, he suffers a FreakOut and kills the Rockbells, having connected them with the Amestrians who killed his people, while in the second he doesn't do any of that, despite being greeted by the similarly blonde haired and blue eyed Olivier.]]



** More explicit in the manga when, after being saved by Olivier, he complains that she, like the Rockbells, didn't just let him die.



* EasilyForgiven: Averted. Winry is willing to help Scar by treating his life-threatening injuries because it's what her parents would have done, but that doesn't mean she's forgiven him. Also, Edward still wants to beat the crap out of him and make him pay his respects in front of the Rockbell graves one day.

Also, Edward still wants to beat the crap out of him and make him pay his respects in front of the Rockbell graves one day. He also refuses to tell Winry why he killed her parents, not wanting to seek forgiveness for it (he killed them after regaining consciousness after his family was killed, discovering that his brothers arm was now attached where his own once was, and freaked out when he saw them and was reminded of the Amestrian soldiers.)
** Played straight in the end as [[spoiler: Olivier saves his life and Miles offers him the chance to help rebuild Ishbal. Olivier claims that she did it to scare Roy when it became obvious that saving him wouldn't benefit her.]]



** The start of it was after Winry freaked out and tried to kill him after she discovered that he had killed her parents. Afterwards, Scar could only wonder if that was what he looked like.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Among his murders, Winry's parents are the only ones he feels genuine guilt and remorse over, as he knows they were unjustified.]]

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Among his murders, Winry's parents are the only ones he feels genuine guilt and remorse over, as he knows they were unjustified. And unlike the others, they also weren't planned and were carried out in the middle of a freak out.]]



* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Survives killing Wrath (no easy task) and even gives us [[MrExposition some exposition]] in 106. While dripping blood out of... everything.

* ScaryBlackMan: Well, Scary ''Ishvalan'' Man, but close enough. This guy becomes the State Alchemists' bogeyman!

Added DiffLines:

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: [[spoiler: Ling ultimately has this revelation. He came to Amestris seeking immortality and got his wish when fusing with Greed rendered him practically immortal. However, Ling realizes it's not worth it when he's still helpless to save people he cares about.]]

* HeroicSacrifice:
** [[spoiler:During the FinalBattle, he refused to get his body back, since he can't properly use it for combat, despite the fact that he ''desperately wanted that proper flesh and blood body for years.'' He tries not to get too upset about it.]]
** [[spoiler:Seeing as his blood seal was cracked, Ed had lost his automail arm and was pinned against a rock and about to have his life force drained by the Father, ''he gives back his soul so that Ed could have his original arm back''. Thankfully he gets better when Ed comes back to save him.]]

* OddFriendship: With Hughes. His constant pestering for Roy to find a wife and outgoing personality is a constant annoyance to Roy, but in the end, the two are as close as close friends could be.
