Added DiffLines:

*** ''Bonus'' bonus points: [[spoiler:Roy isn't ''actually'' a womanizer; he just uses that as a cover to gather information. There's also some extra irony/contrast in that Lust pretended to date Havoc in order to get information out of him, too.]]


Added DiffLines:

*** More on Greed: [[spoiler:his second and "actual" death came from him pulling a HeroicSacrifice. His final act was ''willingly'' doing one of the absolute least greedy things possible!]]

* Why are there so many Ishvalans still alive in spite of the genocide? [[spoiler:Because the nationwide transmutation circle only required people to die ''in Ishval''. The conflict probably would have been sufficient for the blood crest if it hadn't turned from a regional uprising to a war throughout the southeast. If it had gone on for longer the high command could have been distracted from Father's plan (and recruiting all those State Alchemists was a bonus for cultivating sacrifices). Thus, Wrath no longer needed to enforce the order, leaving local authorities to either execute it themselves or turn a blind eye to refugees]].

** Apart from being [[spoiler:rather smug in general once TheReveal is out there's a second reason him being Pride is fitting. Hohenheim realizes that his shadow form is similar to Father's original form, and he's also the oldest homunculus after Father. He's Father's favorite, or Father's "''pride'' and joy, so to speak.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Sloth is the ultimate application of BrilliantButLazy. His work for Pride and Father can be taken a step further in that he even views ''saying no'' as "too much effort." Then, he's [[LightningBruiser incredibly strong and fast]], yes, but only fights when ''absolutely'' necessary, and he can't seem to [[TooFastToStop control his speed]]. Sloth probably never bothered to practice using his abilities at all.

** Alternatively, it could just be that Lust is a symbol for sexual lust while having a personality of bloodlust.

** Alternatively, it could just be that Lust is a symbol for sexual lust while having a personality of bloodlust.blood lust.
*** Lust herself seems to [[CombatSadomasochist enjoy]] [[BloodKnight combat]] a little too much, making her "proper" sin ''blood'' lust pretty likely.



** Envy's case of DontYouDarePityMe is also incredibly fitting, as seemingly being looked down upon further reminds him that he's ''not'' what he so desperately wants to be.



** Mrs. Bradley slapped her husband the first time they met. He promptly started hitting on her. Given that he's [[spoiler: ''Wrath the Furious'']] this makes ''so'' much sense. [[spoiler: [[FridgeHorror Of course, you then realise]] [[TheMasochismTango how Wrath and Mrs. Bradley's more intimate moments would be like.]]]]

** Also, part of Sloth's laziness is that he just doen't like doing more than necessary. So apart from the most obvious reasoning, Sloth rarely moves fast because he usually doesn't ''need'' to. In other words, Sloth is a perfect example of BrilliantButLazy!



** However, we do see Envy impersonating Cornello in one early scene when he meets up with Gluttony and Lust. We also know they can turn into people they've seen pictures of (as evidenced by [[spoiler:them turning into Gracia after seeing Hughes's family photo]]), so if there were any pictures of Cornello around, that could work if they didn't have access to an intact body. On the other hand, maybe having a physical body as reference would make things ''easier'' for Envy?



* The only thing that can break the law of equivalent exchange is a Philosopher's stone. Edward is one, acording to the first point on this section. [[spoiler: Winry also broke it because she didn't expected anything for every good deed that she did. They truly deserve each other.]]

*** It goes even deeper than that.[[spoiler: Mustang has, both figuratively and (as the final battle demonstrates) literally, a spare set of eyes. One might say he has a hawks eyes. Which is doubly ironic considering that both pride and Father were bragging when they saw his condition how he would be of no use in a hypothetical fight, despite how dangerous and powerful his alchemy is. They underestimated humanity. Again.]]

** Whenever the Truth takes something from someone, it takes the entire body part: Ed's leg, Al's body, Izumi's organs. On the other hand, [[spoiler:Roy]] only lost his eye''sight'', not an actual organ. [[spoiler:Since he didn't really commit the taboo, he got a lighter version.]] Crosses into FridgeHorror once you realize that [[spoiler:had he actually preformed human transmutation, he would have likely lost his eyes.]] Which is exactly what happened to Jude in the OVA ''The Blind Alchemist''.

* Sloth the Lazy is the fastest and strongest of the homunculi. He embodies the sin of sloth because he refuses to use his potential unless Pride is specifically ordering him to do so.
