** Lujon attempts to save a small boy from the disease with alchemy at one point. The poor kid pretty much ''exploded''. While ''screaming'' in agony.

* The expression on Mustang's face as he [[spoiler:is ready to kill himself]] in the Ishval flashback episode is nothing short of haunting.
* Barry The Chopper. Unlike in the manga/''Brotherhood'' anime, his sadism is not only played seriously. It's terrifying. In episode 8, he kidnaps both Winry and Ed. He has Ed tied to a chair with his automail arm taken off and has Winry BoundAndGagged. He graphically talks about how he likes slicing people into pieces and makes several NightmareFace's. He slices Ed's arm and mentally tortures him while trying to murder him. Seeing Ed crying and screaming makes it especially bad.

** There's Ed's reaction to this scene that
makes it especially bad.scary. Keep in mind, he was ''twelve'' when this happened, and he reacts the same way anyone would. And he was all alone, and no one knew where he was. Ed manages to escape by turning the chains into a spear. That's when Barry starts swinging, and when Ed starts screaming. And when we realize that he's actually ''terrified''. The only time we've seen him so scared was when he and Al tried to bring their mother back. After Al and a few State Alchemists arrive to save them, Ed breaks down sobbing.
--->'''Ed:''' I thought he was going to kill me. I honestly thought I was gonna die. I was so scared... so scared...



* [[spoiler:Hughes's death]] is only a little different in this version, but in a way that largely changes the atmosphere. [[spoiler:The part with Lust is mostly the same, it's when Hughes goes to call on the phone in the lobby. The random girl he runs into is replaced with the Fuhrer's secretary, who is the anime's version of Sloth, who also tries to kill him. It gives it a kind of ParanoiaFuel feeling, like the homunculi can be anybody and anywhere, and there's nowhere to run.]]

* The armours with souls attached to them that were guarding Laboratory #5. There are sixty-six, or possibly even more revived souls like Barry the Chopper and the Slicer Brothers whose souls were sucked out of their bodies, in a process so painful that it prompts [[AxCrazy ''Barry the Chopper'']] to say matter-of-factly that he wishes that they had just killed them. Unsurprisingly, a vast majority of those souls completely off their rocker, just like the...people... who brought them back.

* In chapter 107, [[spoiler:Ed finally regains his right arm.]] This is a good thing, right? Except... if you look closely, you can see [[spoiler:there are now automail parts ''fused into his flesh'' where the arm regrew.]]

Added DiffLines:

**In a smaller (but nonetheless completely horrifying) instance, [[spoiler: Envy uses this trick to get the drop on Hughes. Hughes had just escaped from Lust, seen through Envy's charade as Lt. Maria Ross, and palmed a knife to stab Envy with. Then Envy shapeshifts into Hughes' wife. The look of despair on his face right before he dies is heartbreaking.]] [[spoiler: Well, except to Envy, who brags about it later on two separate occasions.]]

* Lust attacking Scar in the Central Library. The difference here is the entire time instead of sporting her usual smirk, Lust instead goes into a wide-eyed SlasherSmile, and it is ''[[http://i.imgur.com/qJk6RAC.png unsettling]]''.

This cheerful story focuses on two kids who, respectively, lose an arm and a leg and a ''whole body'' while trying to bring back their beloved dead mother (the magnificent result of which is shown on the right). Perhaps because this alone didn't cause enough readers to run screaming into the night, a certain mangaka threw in some vivid portrayals of [[BodyHorror horrific biological mutations]], [[EldritchAbomination ridiculously murderous monsters]], [[WarIsHell utterly hellish warfare]], and [[JerkassGods a sadistic deity]].

* What happened in Hohenheim's backstory. [[spoiler: Realising way too late that you may have made a ''huge'' mistake in helping your friend in the flask, just before everyone starts dropping like flies, an ENORMOUS eye opens up beneath you that sucks you in, and your body is disassembled while you shreik in fear and agony. And ''then'' waking up to discover that you're the only one still alive in your ENTIRE COUNTRY, have been manipulated into practically causing genocide and thus share responsibility of the horror - and ''then'' discovering you've become immortal and the souls of half of the inhabitants of your country are within you, screaming in pain, sorrow and anger ''every minute'']]? TheScream says it best.

* Pride [[spoiler:what with all the giant mouths and eyes. And the anthropophagy. And the homunculus cannibalism]]. And all those {{Slasher Smile}}s after [[spoiler:eating Gluttony. EnfanteTerrible indeed.]] More so in ''Brotherhood'' than the manga, since apparently StudioBONES learned a bit when they animated ''SoulEater''; he grins like Medusa.
