* Ed and Al's backstory and how badly their attempt at Human Transmutation goes. Ed loses his leg and Al loses his body and Ed is screaming in pain and wracked with guilt. He then uses his blood to craft a Blood Seal to anchor Al's soul to a suit of armor, which costs him his arm. Al manages to get him to Winry's house and begs them for help. Shortly afterwards, Mustang and Hawkeye visit the area and find out what happened and upon meeting Ed, grabs him by the shirt and demands an explaination about what happened while he's in a HeroicBSOD, complete with DullEyesOfUnhappiness. Al ends up doing nothing but apologizing the entire time.

* Oh God, Roy's flashback in episode 13. If the lighting, the hesitation of both characters, and ''"Regret"'' playing in the background wasn't enough, then Roy's shadow on the wall flaring up as Roy incinerates the poor boy absolutely ''killed'' me.

* One that really got to me was Greed's death, especially because of how much it comes across as essentially suicide, particularly with his inspirational speech of the dire need to stop his fellow Homunculi. It's also amazing to see Ed try and succeed in killing him one second and then start crying and screaming for him to wake up when he realizes the full import of what's happened.

* The opening theme of ''Conqueror of Shambala'', it may be one of the few good things about the movie, but the opening theme play a somewhat melancholy, yet upbeat song and show clips on what happen through out some of the 51 episodes. It also includes some of the most very sad moments like [[spoiler:Hughes's death]] or [[spoiler:Chimera Nina]] or [[spoiler:[[KilledOffForReal Scar]]]] shedding a tear.

** The airplane scene broke my heart with Edward slowly making his resolve, turning away, then his heartwrenching calm voice as he explains himself to his brother, the way his face quivers for a moment... and THEN Al starts screaming and crying.
*** And then the cut to Winry who calmly states that Edward now never again will let her wait - and then her face quivers. This broke my heart the second time.

* It wasn't the Hughes' funeral itself which was so profoundly impacting. What really brings everyone to tears is poor little Elysia:
-->'''Elysia''': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nQuX6Xau54 Mommy, how come? Why are they burying Daddy? Who are those people? Why are they burying him, why? They can't! I don't like it! Daddy said he had lots of work to do and if they bury him, he can't do it when he wakes up! Stop them, Mommy! Daddy has to do his work, he told me! Why are they burying Daddy, Mommy? Why?]] ''[[WakeUpMommy ...Daddy, wake up!]]'''

* In the manga, during Elysia's outcry, even the Fuhrer is unable to keep his composure, with his hands shaking on his sword's pommel. And considering who he is (on so many levels), this is especially emotional. [[spoiler:However, it's later revealed he was shaking for [[SuppressedRage a different, much less sympathetic reason]]...]]

Gluttony is sitting there on the floor, crying and moaning out Lust's name, while Envy is completely furious at Wrath for letting Roy get away with it. It just seems to show that, for all the Homunculi are, they do seem to care about each other]].

* Nina's [[spoiler: tragic death on top of]] turning into a Chimera. The moment you realize that an adorable 5 year old girl has been horribly, painfully, and forcibly transmuted, into an unholy abomination by her FATHER no less is horrific to say the least. Not to mention the fact the reason why Tucker did this to his daughter and dog. Simply because. No grand scheme or grab for power. Simply because. The fans were practically begging Ed to hand Tucker his ass.
** In the both first anime and ''Brotherhood'' Ed actually does start beating the man, only for Chimera/Nina to grab his coat and plead with him not to hurt her ''daddy''. *''shivers''*

** [[HeroicBSOD Her grandfather Fu's reaction is bad too.]] At first he's absolutely furious that she failed to protect Ling and is on the verge of hitting her, and ''does'' slap her across the face in ''Brotherhood''. Then Dr. Knox draws his attention to the fact that she's [[spoiler:missing something]], Fu's voice tone and body language ''completely change'' from anger to [[ThisCannotBe dejection and denial]], murmuring "[[spoiler: her arm]], it's... [[AnArmAndALeg it's not there]]...]]" in utter horror, and he falls completely flat, crying. The manga keeps the scolding, but Fu gradually breaks down in tone, ending on the verge of tears on "You don't even [[spoiler: have your arm]] anymore..."
