* 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 himself and sent to prison, Mustang informs her that that's ''exactly'' what he wants.

* BeAllMySinsRemembered: When he [[spoiler: has the opportunity to regain his lost leg, he decides against it, to remind him of his journey and the consequences of his actions.]]



* TwistingTheWords: Taken UpToEleven whenever someone makes even the slightest comment about his height; for example, he interprets "small" as "so-tiny-that-he-need-not-fear-being-crushed-by-a-boot-because-he-fits-so-easily-between-the-grooves-of-the-sole."



* ColdBloodedTorture: Puts [[spoiler: Envy]] through this near the end of the series. He even lets [[spoiler: Envy]] [[HealingFactor regenerate themselves]], stating outright that they'll die a ''thousand'' deaths before he's done with them.



* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler:Envy found out very painfully that [[TalkingIsAFreeAction talking ISN'T a free action]], pretending to be allies doesn't work (although Envy should have picked someone who was alive), and Mustang goes for the [[EyeScream EYES]].]]

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He's aware of this possibility happening on his quest to reform the military, namely that he may become as bad as the current regime, so he makes Hawkeye promise to shoot him if he ever goes off the deep end. [[spoiler: Good thing that he's thought of this. When he encounters Envy, who killed his best friend Hughes, he's become so ruthless, that he's nearly lost himself, making all of his friends and comrades, who were present, fear for him. See IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim ffor more information.]]

* LogicalWeakness: The fact that he's useless when it's raining is a bit of a RunningGag. This is because, well, he uses fire, and rain is going to put a bit of a damper on his ability to get a flame going.

* MeaningfulName: The words "Ling" and "Lin" have various different meanings in Chinese in addition to being names, depending on the hanzi used: "ling" can mean, among other things, "nimble", and is one of the hanzi used to spell the word "spirit", while "lin" can mean "carry" (which he does to Lan Fan while they're escaping from Bradley). His surname Yao, on the other hand, could be a play on the fact that [[Greed "yao" can also mean "want"]]. And then, in languages other than Chinese...

* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:Cunningly inverted; he willingly gives up his body to Greed without a fight (which incidentally helps in the long run, as his lack of struggle prevented the philosopher's stone he received from burning out most of its power), but he has enough willpower to maintain his consciousness. From thereon Ling uses a combination of patience and willpower to occasionally wrestle back control of his body from Greed, at least until they start acting more in tandem.]]
