** [[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 have your arm anymore..."

** The ''Brotherhood'' rendition of [[spoiler: Scar's backstory]], which takes up a good part of the aforementioned episode 22, is no less heartbreaking. It's specially poignant because the flashback is almost all in black and white, [[SplashOfColor save for]] the BlueEyes of both [[IcyBlueEyes cold]] / [[CreepyBlueEyes evil]] and [[InnocentBlueEyes good]] Amestrians as [[spoiler: the Ishvalan massacre]] takes place...

** If the above has no effect, then thinking of its effects on [[spoiler: Roy Mustang]] may change it. [[spoiler: Roy's biggest desire, which Hughes shares, is to change Amestris' society so peace will be achieved and nothing ever similar to the Ishbalan Massacre will happen again. Here, however, by beating and burning Envy pretty much to death, Roy is his DarkestHour... and about to completely betray these noble ideas and dreams. He's about to [[HeWhoFightsMonsters become the very person]] [[YouAreWhatYouHate he detests the most]], out of trying to avenge his best friend's death.]] It's a damn ''relief'' to see [[spoiler: Ed and Riza]] appear and manage to [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan snap the guy out of it.]]

** Seeing Basque Grand trying to spare Ishbal can also be quite sad when you know that all of his efforts are going to fail, Bradley is going to order the genocide to continue, and that in the end, Grand is going to be killed by one of the Ishbalan survivors.
** "I curse you". It's a small line from the last Ishbalian killed in the war, but it's incredibly powerful because he doesn't look angry at Mustang. No, he's quietly stating that Roy will carry the [[WarIsHell demons of Ishbal]] for the rest of his life. And Roy can't do anything but look at him in the eye as he executes him.

** What's really sad is when you examine the Homunculi, creatures formed from [[spoiler: Father's emotions and desires]], and realize that [[spoiler: what Father really wanted was that same love and support that wound up defeating him, a desire so deeply buried and denied that neither he nor his children (save Greed and Envy, and Envy committed suicide out of shame for it) were ever able to admit it.]] To really rub salt in the wound [[spoiler: had he from the start simply asked Van Hohenheim, his own "father" whom he freed from slavery and who was fond of him (before the whole, y'know, [[MoralEventHorizon genocide of Hohenheim's people thing]], [[AllLovingHero Hohenheim]] would have given that love and support to him in a heartbeat.]]

* The look on [[NobleDemon Greed]]'s face when he admits, in his entire life, [[spoiler:[[IJustWantToHaveFriends that all he's ever wanted was friends]]]]. Especially poignant in the anime where we see [[spoiler:his eyes shimmer a little, as if saying if he wasn't [[{{Badass}} who he was]], he'd cry from]] this revelation.
