Added DiffLines:

* ActingForTwo: Creator/RomiPark and Creator/RieKugimiya, Edward and Alphonse's voice actresses in the Japanese version, voiced two of Major Armstrong's family members who are his mother and his younger sister Catherine for one episode in both anime series (episodes 37 and 45 respectfully). Kugimiya also voiced Xiao-Mei in Brotherhood as well. Averted in the English dub of both series, however, where the five are portrayed by different voice actors.
** The English dub of both series has Creator/CaitlinGlass voicing both Winry and her mother Sarah, and Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard voicing both Rose Thomas and Riza Hawkeye. Averted in the Japanese version, however, where the four are portrayed by different voice actresses.

* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Quasi-example: the LicensedGame, ''Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel'', was released in the US just two and a half months after the anime's Creator/AdultSwim premiere, but was localized ''before'' the dubbing of the anime began; thus, all of the US voice actors were cast for and recorded the game before starting on the first episode.

** ''Broken Angel'' also played this straight with Alex Louis Armstrong, as the game featured him a full month before the episode with his first appearance in the anime aired on U.S. television.

* ActorAllusion: The first thing [[Creator/MinamiTakayama Envy]] says upon meeting Ed is "Arara", an expression of surprise and interest. It is often uttered by [[Manga/DetectiveConan Conan Edogawa]] when he's playing dumb.



* FandomNod: 503 as shorthand for Ed/Winry shipping, [[spoiler:Ed calling the new Greed "Gree(d)ling"]].

* OvertookTheManga: A somewhat unusual case, in which the creator of the manga ''specifically asked'' the people making the anime to do this, since the manga was nowhere near being completed at the time the anime came out.

** Creator/VicMignogna on ''many'' occasions was not actually shown the entire script, and his lines were all recorded in chronological order. As a result, his surprise at what was on the other side of the GateOfTruth, what originally happened after the tucker incident, ''and'' Vic's sadness in the last few episodes were legitimate surprises.
** When Al was hit with a teacup, supposedly, a teacup was tossed at Aaron Dismuke's face.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Numerous in both languages.
** The dub had a surprise cross-region one late in the story: Creator/ScottMcNeil as Hohenheim!
** Earlier than that, Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, typically a Los Angeles-based actor, makes a surprise cameo as a supporting character for one episode.
** The series is purported to be one of, if not the only anime series to be dubbed by actors hailing for all four major dubbing cities: Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, and Vancouver.
*** It's easier to list Texas-based voice actors who ''haven't'' been in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' at some point than those who have.
** In the Japanese version, an amazing amount of the cast had been involved in ''Mobile Suit Gundam SEED'', which Fullmetal Alchemist had immediately followed in the popular (at the time) Saturday 6 p.m. timeslot after SEED had finished airing. The tradition would be continued with ''Mobile Suit Gundam 00'' and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.
** In Germany Roy is Creator/JohnnyDepp (voiced by David Nathan who is the German voice actor for most of Depp's stuff.)
** Hungary: There are quite a few veterans from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'': Courtney is Lust, Brick is Edward Elric, Noah is Denny Bloch, Trent is Vato Falman, Tyler is now Solf J. Kimble, Scott is Kain Fuery, Mike is Brotherhood!Envy, Chef is Brotherhood!Sloth, Anne Maria is Paninya, Blaineley is Rebecca Catalina, Bridgette is Izumi Curtis, Jo/Eva is Gracia Hughes.
