**[[spoiler: Don't forget, all of this is coming from a kid, who's first appearance is gushing over Ed. When you re-watch it, all of Selim's interactions prior to being found out as Pride are incredibly creepy.]]

** Speaking of Kimblee, like Barry the Chopper mentioned below, he is ''much'' more horrifying in the first anime and considering the [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Blue and Orange Morality]] of his Brotherhood counterpart, that's really saying something. There's an Ishval flashback early on in the series, where Kimblee is seeing blowing up whole buildings with a Philosopher's Stone and ''laughing maniacally with an unsettling smirk''. And remember, this guy actually influenced Barry to become the serial killer he is now.

** To be more specific, Ed and Al hear word of an alchemist named Jude, servant of a noble family, who has successfully performed Human Transmutation to bring back their daughter Rosalie after her untimely death. For this, he has to pay a toll of both his eyes, rendering him incapable of seeing the smiles return to his masters' faces. The kicker? [[spoiler:The Harbinger family is actually lying to him to spare his feelings. Not only did he fail to revive her daughter, they wind up adopting a young girl to pretend to be Rosalie in order to keep up the charade. Meanwhile, a room in the house now contains a bed hosting the zombified remains of what was brought back during the Human Transmutation. And given what we discover about Ed's attempt at reviving Trisha, it's not even the real Rosalie in that bed.]]

** [[spoiler: The sounds of Xerxes' end. You can hear people crying out in fear or pain as the transmutation spreads -- then a shockwave runs from the centre of the circle, and the cries stop. Dead.]]

* When Scar is healed by his brother in Ishval, he is helped by Winry's parents and wakes up in a medical tent. In the last attack, he'd lost his arm... so you can understand his confusion and horror when it looks like he woke up ''with his brother's arm in its place''. No wonder he had a major FreakOut.

* Roy Mustang. Episode 53/54. What happens when Envy reveals [[spoiler:they're the bastard who killed Hughes]]? Roy's facial expression immediately changes into '''the DeathGlare to end all {{Death Glare}}s'''. Not to mention his personality does a complete 180, [[UnstoppableRage acting like a demon of unfathomable fury and rage has possessed him to torture and kill Envy in the most brutal, cruel, and frightening ways imaginable]]. Not to mention that after Envy tries to get Mustang to hesitate by ''[[TooDumbToLive imitating Hughes]]'', Mustang's glare actually gets ''worse.''

** [[spoiler:This isn't even the first time Envy has pulled this off. The powder keg that was the annexation of Ishval only fully into a war of extermination after Envy took the guise of a soldier who had been ''against the occupation'', offered a seemingly friendly smile to a child [[FridgeHorror to come across like the same guy]], then shot that child in cold blood. The fact they can do this kind of thing taking the visage of someone who's either been shamed or who would seem completely OOC doing what they intends to do with their look, yet still get all the desired effects is extremely frightening. Imagine your staunchly anti-war relative initiating a shootout at the local police department which goes so bad it sets an entire town into lockdown. '''[[ParanoiaFuel Envy can do that. In fact Envy gets their kicks that way.]]''']]

* When Envy confirms to Mustang that [[spoiler: they're the one who killed Hughes - ''and then shifts into Gracia again'', just to rub in the fact that Hughes was killed by someone wearing the form of his beloved wife. It's really quite dreadful to watch the face of the normally kind and gentle Gracia wearing a huge, demented grin as her husband's killer babbles about how great the 'utter shock, the dumb confusion' on Hughes' face was as he died. Naturally, this slams down ''hard'' on Mustang's BerserkButton.]]

* King Bradley [[spoiler:revealing himself to be a homunculus]] is way more chilling and foreboding in this version, certainly helped by the fact that in this version, [[spoiler:TheReveal was much later in the series, and Bradley's true identity as the Homunculus Pride had not even been foreshadowed. It's a much more terrifying version of the above mentioned change to Hughes' death, as it not only gives the idea that the Homunculi can be everywhere and nobody is safe...but they have [[ParanoiaFuel so much hidden influence]] that ''the leader of the country'' is one of them]].

* [[spoiler:Shou Tucker]] himself. The very thought that a man could [[spoiler:transmute his ''wife'' and later his ''5-year-old daughter'' and her dog into chimeras]] is just nauseating in all sorts of ways. From [[spoiler:Nina]]'s garbled speech, ''she wasn't even fully aware of what had happened''. And then [[spoiler:Scar shows up and {{Mercy Kill}}s her]].

* Hughes' death, full-stop, from how ''sudden'' the scene was (in the manga, anyway; ''Brotherhood'' extended it a bit). [[spoiler: The last thing Hughes sees before he dies is something that looks exactly like his beloved wife, smiling as she is about to murder him. Contrary to how happy he usually is to see her, the look his face right before Envy pulls the trigger is pure horror and despair, and then he's gone. That is the last face the reader sees him make alive. The next shot of him is ''his blood-soaked corpse'', still lying in the phone booth with Envy long gone.]]
