** End of ep. 48 is also a bit shippy, though some are split on whether it's promoting Roy/Ed, Roy/Maes, or Elricest. Roy and Ed talk about how they're sacrificing everything they've earned in the name of Hughes and Al (respectively), but there's an overwhelming sense of ItHasBeenAnHonor and Roy finally seeing Ed as not a child whose innocence he wants to protect as much as possible, but as an equal. Likewise, Ed sees the Roy behind the "Bastard Colonel" facade. They both admit they're NotSoDifferent, and it's telling that this moment comes at their last possible meeting, when they both know they might be going to their deaths.
** Ed certainly spends a lot of time thinking about Roy's "cocky smile" and "witty remarks" in the anime. "I can just see his smug face now..." We know you can, dear.
** Vic/Ed saying "Roy Mustang is dead sexy...in a miniskirt!"
* Winry, Scheska. Good god, they wander the world together, have romantic strolls along riverbanks at sunset, and have the TomboyAndGirlyGirl thing going on, and basically ignore what love interests they have to spend all their time together.

deaths."

* Don't forget the extent that Ed and Al go to protect and just stay with each other. [[spoiler:Even ditching Winry in the movie.]]
** In the anime Ed "has something he's been meaning to tell Al for a long time" but didn't because he was "afraid of how he would react". Love confession!
*** In the English dub Al saying that he [[AccidentalInnuendo doesn't remember what Ed's skin feels like]].



* There's also a little bit of this between Ed and [[IdenticalStranger Alfons Heiderich]], particularly in the moment before Ed [[spoiler: returns to Amestris]] when Alfons takes his hand and makes him promise never to forget him. It's also implied earlier that they share a dresser and maybe even a room. It isn't much, but it's enough to make them one of the more popular [[SlashFic slash]] ships among fans of the first anime.

* Dante seems to be flirting with Rose in episode 49; calling Rose "exquisite" as she runs her fingers along Rose's neck.

* Dante seems to be flirting with Rose in episode 49; calling Rose "exquisite" as she runs her fingers along Rose's neck. Of course, this is NoYay for a lot of viewers, given what Dante plans to do with her...



* Roy and Hughes have a decent amount. Their relationship gets a lot more focus here, including after Hughes's death, where it's made much clearer that Roy is losing sleep and weight from it, and is overall taking far less care of himself than usual. They also have some pretty shippy [[http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/darkmythril/formal-1.jpg official art]] and moments [[http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/darkmythril/hughes_roy-1.jpg in the novels]]... and then there are [[http://pyro-edward.livejournal.com/11235.html?thread=37603 their image songs]], where they seem to more or less admit to having feelings for each other. They aren't canon, but are still pretty blatant shipper-bait from the anime team.

** On the subject of Mustang and Hughes: Academy friends, met up again in the Hell of Ishval, and Hughes signed on to 'support Roy from below.' Roy then went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Envy after learning he was responsible for [[spoiler: Hughes' death.]] He was distraught at Riza and Havoc possibly dying, but it's only with ''Hughes'' that he truly loses his cool (though this can be argued as being because Hughes is the only one who actually dies).

* The original Manga/FullmetalAlchemist manga (as well as its direct adaptation, ''Brotherhood'') has surprisingly little (arguably ''no'') HoYay for a shonen with a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge]] and mostly male cast. Perhaps it's precisely this absence of [[{{canon}} deliberate]] {{subtext}} which has led the [[YaoiFangirl yaoi fangirls]] to see romantic overtones in Ed's relationship with Ling, and in Mustang's rather heartfelt reaction to Hughes' [[spoiler:death]].

** Also in TheMovie, there are the lines after Havoc and Breda leave Mustang's hut, and Havoc wonders if they should have brought Lt. Hawkeye with them. Breda responds saying that she wouldn't want to see him like this and "besides, it's not the Lieutenant the Colonel is waiting for." WordOfGod is that the script originally planned to explicitly say he was waiting for Ed, but thought it was better merely implied. But they would have made it explicit [[WhatCouldHaveBeen if there had been a novelization]].

** There's also a moment in "The Stray Dog" when they're changing past Mustang and co. on a motorcycle, driven by Winry, and Sciezka puts her arms around Winry with her hands in a very...revealing position.
