Added DiffLines:

* AmazonianBeauty: Very downplayed,Riza has a moderately muscular build with wide shoulders from military training, though it isn't shown off too much,it is shown to not distract from her attractiveness at all, and if anything enhances it.


Added DiffLines:

* SexySecretary: Riza has high-level administrative and secretarial skills to keep Mustang's group in line, although it is more incidental to her role, her friend Catalina does make a joke about her being one for womanizers like [[UrbanLegendOfLoveLife Roy]] and [[DirtyOldMan Bradley]].


Added DiffLines:

* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Riza is a stoic soldier on the surface, though she prefers to wear long skirts while off-duty, though fitting with the trope, she still wears [[BootsOfToughness boots]]

* BloodKnight: When given a chance to battle, some of them show that they really ''enjoy'' it. [[spoiler:To give them credit though, [[OfficerAndAGentleman none of them attack civilians or ignore innocents in danger.]]]]

* GoodEyesEvilEyes: When shown in earlier chapters at [[spoiler: her father's time of death and his funeral]], her eyes are noticeably softer and rounder. Ishval did a number on her, though, and while they softened up a bit after, they still remained [[TsurimeEyes noticeably sharp]].

** PlayedWith, with Mustang. She trusts him enough and believes in his [[WideEyedIdealist vision of the future]] enough to reveal to him the secrets of her father's research, despite [[spoiler: [[EmbarrassingTattoo her discomfort of its]] [[{{Backstory}} location]]]]. However, when he betrays her trust by going against that vision in Ishval, she is absolutely ''distraught'' at his actions and lets him know very plainly how she feels.

* TheGadfly: Ed's "''Fullmetal''" Codename was his idea. He also likes ditch his bodyguards and surprise his subordinates with unannounced visits (a particularly memorable scene in the manga is when he followed Ed by posing as a tourist in an obnoxious Hawaiian shirt).

Whereas they are atoning for the atrocities they were ordered to commit, he is atoning for his failure to protest such atrocities--when asked to kill a child, he essentially had a nervous breakdown and had to be sent home. This causes him to vow to never back down again when faced with evil [[spoiler: causing him to instantly side with Roy when he learns Führer Bradley is a homunculus.]]

For the former, he maintains a facade of good-natured politeness, even when killing people by the hundreds, but during [[spoiler:his hunt for Scar, this facade melts for the first time when Scar, standing atop a building, comments on how he and Kimblee (looking up at him from the ground) were now in the exact opposite positions of when they first met. An enraged Kimblee warns him to watch his mouth, and prepares to use his alchemy, ignoring the fact that Scar had Winry as a "hostage."]] The second shows through when Kimblee looks kind of pissed when [[spoiler: Pride tries to consume Edward, essentially ditching his ego and [[{{Irony}} pride]] as a homunculus by taking a "lesser being".

* EvilCounterpart[=/=]{{Foil}}[=/=]ShadowArchetype: Possibly towards Scar. In the sense that both of them specialize in alchemy based around destruction, both were involved in the Ishval Civil War (Kimblee as one of the soldiers who took part in the genocide, Scar as one of it's victims), and both invoke LightIsNotGood. This was perhaps shown at its best when [[spoiler: Scar pointed out how their situations were reversed from what happened with Ishval, with Scar having abandoned his path of vengeance while Kimblee's obsession with Scar never waned]].

* FauxAffablyEvil: He's an AxeCrazy sociopath who nevertheless manages to keep up a facade of being a polite and respectful gentleman for the sake of getting by in life. As long as you aren't in his way you're probably safe. Probably. After his release from prison, he transmutes a guard's watch into a toy bomb.

* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: A strange variation of it. Technically, he was already dead to begin with, but the moment Pride displays his hypocrisy in his beliefs, Kimblee becomes convinced that it's humans who are ultimately more deserving than the homunculi, and at that point weakens Pride enough for Ed to finish him off.

To say nothing of how he gives the impression of being a friendly and charismatic man. This probably makes the moment [[spoiler:he is eaten by Pride, a shadow based homunculus]] quite significant.

Added DiffLines:

* {{No Nonsense Nemesis}}: Unlike his superior, Father, or the other homunculi, when in battle, he won't yammer on about his own species' superiority, hint to their villainous plan, or needlessly torture his opponents. If he sees you as a threat, he will make sure to dispose of you as quickly as possible, or at least incapacitate you, so you're easier to use for Father's plan, like threatening to kill your childhood friend if you resign from the military.
