* HeelRealization: He knew he wasn't a ''good'' person for a while. But it wasn't until Winry agreed to heal his wounds despite her hatred for him (crystallizing a point his elders made about their decision to pursue nonviolence) that he comes to realize just where- and how grievously- he went wrong.

* {{Hypocrite}}: He believes that Scar should be punished for the murders that he committed against Amestrians, but is more hesitant to believe that Mustang, Hawkeye, and the rest of the Amestrian soldiers should be punished for doing the same thing to Ishvalans, a view he shares with Winry and Al. Most of Scar's victims were State Alchemists, some that participated on his race's genocide, but the Amestrian soldiers killed ''thousands'' of Ishvalans, women and children included. Granted, he believes that the Amestrian soldiers were JustFollowingOrders and being manipulated by the homunculi, but Hawkeye, who participated in the genocide, outright states that's no excuse for their actions.

* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: Invoking this is a big part of his motivation. As a soldier in the Ishval Civil War, he committed numerous atrocities, but as he was on the winning side, he was commended and treated as a war hero. His goal throughout the series is to become the Führer of Amestris, so he can make sure this is rectified. When Hawkeye points out that this means Mustang himself will most likely be tried as a war criminal and sent to prison, Mustang informs her that that's ''exactly'' what he wants.

WordOfGod confirms that [[spoiler:Mustang does indeed see his day in court for his crimes in the war, and is found guilty, but pardoned for his role in saving everyone]].

Added DiffLines:

* BatmanGrabsAGun: During his showdown with [[spoiler:King Bradley]] near the end of the series, he [[spoiler:breaks his code as an Ishvalan and uses Alchemy to reconstruct matter, thus regaining the upper hand. Up until that point, he only used his abilities to destroy things and so remained technically within the bounds of his code against it.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheFarmerAndTheViper: After the war, [[spoiler:Winry's parents gave him medical treatment, saving his life. Scar thanked them by flipping out and killing them both.]]

* TheAce: Easily the best State Alchemist in terms of power, a brilliant strategist, and well known and loved by many women in addition to being a war hero and being the first character to kill a homunculus! By the end of the series, he has the highest homunculus body count.

* TheAce: Zig-zagged. Easily the best State Alchemist in terms of power, a brilliant strategist, strategist (somewhat subverted), and well known and loved by many women (or so people think, they're actually informants) in addition to being a war hero and being the first character to kill a homunculus! By the end of the series, he has the highest homunculus body count.



* TheChessmaster: Sometimes successfully (the [[FakingTheDead Maria Ross incident]]), sometimes not so much ("''Scar feeding cats, King Bradley is a homunculus...''") Somewhat subverted on the whole, as most of his enemies know he's planing a coup, but consider his actions inconsequential to their plans, and they tend to ignore him because he's right where they want him to be.

Somewhat subverted on the whole, as most of his enemies know and his allies figure out quickly that he's planing a coup, but consider his actions inconsequential to their plans, and they tend to ignore him because he's right where they want him to be. It should be noted that his coup would have failed spectacularly if not for major outside interference by others, and one of his allies swooped in at the last moment and took his prize from him anyway.

* ContraltoOfDanger: Like Major General Armstrong, Izumi's voice is the deepest among the entire female cast and she's certainly one of the most dangerous.

* ThisIsUnforgivable: When she learns the Elric Brothers did Human Transmutation, she expels them, stating that she cannot forgive them for such a thing. In reality, it's much more complicated [[spoiler: namely in that it reminds of her own attempt to bring back her stillborn child the same way they would tyr to bring back their mother.]]

* TheMedic: Winry was reading ''medical textbooks'' at the same age that Ed and Al started teaching themselves alchemy, and she shows skill in surgery, first aid, and automail (which requires background in neurology and anatomy, among others). She also delivers a baby in Rush Valley despite never having done it before.



* ShipperOnDeck: Makes cracks at Al, regarding Mei.

Added DiffLines:

* CruelToBeKind: During his first appearance, he coldly accuses Edward of running away and then knowingly lets him overhear a conversation with Pinako about the possibility that what he created wasn't even Trisha. The combination of these two events drives him to prove he isn't running away by checking the body only to find out that not only was it not Trisha, but it's little more than a crudely made jumble of random body parts that could never have been a functional human. By talking to it with Al, they realize it didn't even have a soul or consciousness of its own, so they didn't bring some poor freak into the world that could only suffer before it died either. This greatly eases the conscience of Ed, Al and Izumi because it means they didn't kill their loved ones a second time.

* KickTheMoralityPet: Near the end of the series, he's taking brutal revenge on Envy when Ed, Scar, and Riza step in to stop him. Roy asks Riza what she plans to do after [[spoiler:she shoots him. The answer? Kill herself because it means she let him betray his own ideals]]. He backs down immediately.

* TragicBigot: His hatred of all Amestrians, including and especially State Alchemists, stems from what the Amestrian military did during the Ishvalan Massacre.

* HavingABlast: His alchemy revolves around changing air densities to allow the air to combust and lead the flames to the target. He can even make the air so dense around the target that he essentially creates bombs out of pure oxygen that will explode spectacularly once the flames reach it. Overlaps with [[PlayingWithFire]].

Added DiffLines:

* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Keeping with Arakawa's tendency to name military characters after real-world war machinery, Roy was named after [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_P-51_Mustang the P-51 Mustang]], which gained fame in World War II for its ability to lead raids from the front, handle high altitudes, and stay flying for long periods thanks to its fuel capacity -- all of which are referenced in Roy's character. It also was responsible for shooting down more Axis aircraft than any other Allied fighter, which is alluded to in how [[spoiler:Roy ends up killing the homunculi more than any of the other heroes, both for good and in general terms of depleting their philosopher's stones]].
