* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: The first State Alchemist Scar kills. The Elric brothers don't seem to care about his death, as opposed to that of Nina and Alexander. The author even acknowledges this, as he's the only one to end up in Hell during Arakawa's "In Memorium" comics. Even [[AxCrazy Envy]], [[SerialKiller Barry]], [[TheSociopath Lust]] and [[MadBomber Kimblee]] ended up in Heaven, so it really puts into perspective how horrible Tucker was]].

** [[spoiler:Sacrificed his family for a ''research grant'', first his [[DeathSeeker wife]], then his [[BreakTheCutie daughter and her dog]].]]
** In the ''Brotherhood'' anime, they add a scene [[spoiler:after Ed's done beating the stuffing out of him and while Al's trying to comfort Nina/Alexander. Shou just crawls up to his nearly-broken State Alchemist pocketwatch on the floor and happily declares that he'll get to ''keep his job''.]]
* ForScience: The primary reason why he [[spoiler:turned his daughter and dog into a monster]]? To see if he could.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: And zero remorse about [[spoiler:turning his wife, and later his daughter and dog, into twisted abominations]], for that matter.

* ItsAllAboutMe: The major reason he's such an awful, scummy human being is that he doesn't have any idea why someone else would act or see things differently than him. He was so obsessed with keeping his job that he saw fit to [[spoiler:sacrifice his own family and pet for it]] and upon being justifiably punished for it, he whines and gripes to his daughter about how "nobody understands him".
* KnightOfCerebus: Although it started with a horrifically failed attempt at resurrecting their mother, ''Fullmetal Alchemist'' begins kind of hopeful with Edward and Alphonse Elric traveling to find the Philosopher's Stone to set things right. Then they encounter Tucker, whose experiments that [[spoiler:transformed his wife, dog, and daughter into pained chimeras]], give a sign of the darker events that will follow.
* LackOfEmpathy: A somewhat lesser case than others in the series, but [[spoiler:he does have no regrets about turning his wife and daughter into chimeras.]]
* MadDoctor: [[spoiler: Using your own family as guinea pigs]] isn't the best medical practice...

* ObliviouslyEvil: He not only thought that [[spoiler:turning his own family into his own personal guinea pigs and transforming them into inhuman abominations that can only feel pain]] was ''acceptable'', he expected to be ''rewarded'' for it. Perhaps the most terrifying example in existence, and a perfect illustration of how this trope is ''not'' always sympathizing or tragic; if anything, his obliviousness makes him ''ten times more horrible''.

* TheyLookLikeEveryoneElse: The most disturbing aspect of Tucker is how normal he is. In fact, if it weren't for his financial issues that led him [[spoiler: to use his family as test subjects for chimera research]], he would have likely been a normal family man.
* WalkingSpoiler: Although not ''quite'' as bad as most examples.

* WalkingSpoiler: Although not ''quite'' as bad as most examples.Most of his relevance to the plot hinges on the revelation that he is horrendously amoral, after which he quickly dies.

* AffablyEvil: Even after TheReveal, he remains very mild-mannered and polite. Elric is absolutely disgusted.

* FreudianExcuse: [[UnreliableNarrator He claims]] he was in utter poverty before he became a State Alchemist, and is desperate to keep his title. Doesn't come anywhere ''near'' justification for what he did though.

* HateSink: ''Everybody'', including the author, hates this guy. It's telling something that while [[TheSociopath Kimblee]] and [[AxCrazy Envy]] were sent into Heaven in omake manga, the only people who were sent to Hell was Father and this man.
* ItsAllAboutMe: The main reason he falls under the ObliviouslyEvil trope, as well as a major reason for why he's such an awful, scummy human being.

* HateSink: ''Everybody'', including Nothing about Tucker's TrueColors are sympathetic, cool, or funny. Even the author, hates this guy. financial justifications he gives for his actions just come across as the worst kind of pathetic.
