* Nina's [[spoiler: tragic death on top of]] turning into a Chimera. The moment you realize that an adorable 5 year old girl [[WouldHurtAChild has been horribly, painfully, and forcibly transmuted]], into an unholy abomination by her ''[[ArchnemesisDad own 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. ''[[ForTheEvulz Simply because]]''. No grand scheme or grab for power. Simply because. The fans were practically begging Ed to hand Tucker his ass.

* The opening theme of ''Conqueror of Shamballa'', 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' death]] or [[spoiler:chimera Nina]] or [[spoiler:[[KilledOffForReal Scar]]]] shedding a tear. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfaYvWnJW2s&list=PL7C598478A154A496&index=76&feature=plpp_video Just check it out]]

* [[spoiler:Lust's death.]] She starts out as a monster, but seeing her go completely soul-crushingly depressed after [[spoiler:Scar's death]] is just too much. She never even ''smiles'' anymore, with the sole exception being [[spoiler:right before she dies.]] When she teams up with the Elrics to kill Sloth she acts so sympathetic, and to top it off, she agrees with Wrath on some level regarding how [[spoiler:she wants to become human so she can finally die.]]

* The entire subplot of Tucker trying to bring back Nina. Yes, he's a sick, amoral monster deserving of punishment. But as the show progresses, it's clear there's a side of him that truly loved Nina and wanted her back, but to no avail. [[spoiler:By his last appearance, he's only left with a soul-less "doll" of her, and is so insane at this point that he doesn't know this.]] The mere idea of ANYONE being that messed up is just too much.

* 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.

** A bit of FridgeHorror made this even worse. [[spoiler:Because her father promised Nina to play with her the next day,]] it all might have made perfect sense to [[spoiler:her. She and her dog sitting in circles drawn with chalk, her Dad being all excited... Bloody Hell, she probably thought her father would be showing magic tricks to her till the very end.]]

** The airplane scene 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.
