* 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. Al ends up doing nothing but apologizing the entire time.

---> In researching this volume, I interviewed veterans who had been on the front during WorldWarII. I read countless books, examined film footage, and listened to many detailed and intense stories firsthand, but the comment that affected me the most came from a former soldier who lowered his gaze to the tabletop and said "I never watch war movies."

** 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 [[HeWhoFighsMonsters 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.]]

* Ed [[http://video.adultswim.com/fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood/give-him-back.html pleading with the Truth]] after realizing Al was taken away. "Give him back! He's my little brother! Take my leg! Take my arm! TAKE MY ''HEART''! ANYTHING! YOU CAN HAVE IT! Just give him back! HE'S MY LITTLE BROTHER, HE'S ALL I HAVE LEFT!"

** Points for Vic Mignona for perfecting the sheer desperation, rage, and terror in Ed's voice.

** 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. Then Dr. Knox draws his attention to the fact that she's [[spoiler:missing something]] and he falls completely flat, crying.
* Are we forgetting when Ed convinced Winry not to kill [[spoiler:Scar]] in Episode 12 by saying: "With these hands, you delivered a baby. You saved his life, and his mother's. With these hands, you gave me an arm and leg to stand with. These hands aren't meant to take lives, but ''save'' them." A TearJerker and CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming at the ''same time'', because Hiromu Arakawa is just that brilliant.

** The ''Brotherhood'' rendition of [[spoiler: Scar's backstory]], which takes up a good part of the aforementioned episode 12, 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 Ishbalan massacre]] takes place...

** It may be an omake, but it nevertheless turns to FridgeHorror after reading chapter 43.

* 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 a different, much less sympathetic reason]]...
