Lust betraying Father was mentioned above, but this is elaborating on it: consider that the lust Father felt/feels is primarily lust for the perfection of [[AGodAmI becoming the new God.]] Given how Lust is literally her father's lust, it would make sense if she also had her desire for power-her occasional attempts to risk killing sacrifices is a sign of this. Unlike Greed, Lust was waiting for Father's guard to be down(likely when Hohenheim attempted to tear through his "old Hohenheim" disguise) and take his place-considering his lust for power/perfection was probably Father's second greatest trait, [[GenreSavvy she'd have to play the part of loyal]] PsychoForHire until the right moment. Her plan would probably involve using Gluttony's [[NightmareFuel stomach of infinite holding]] to [[AndIMustScream trap Father]] in case she's unable to absorb his Philosopher's Stone. Envy would probably be fine joining her since [[ForTheEvulz it would let him mess with people all the same]] and Lust would convince him to hate Father for making him so envious. Sloth wouldn't care given the work would probably be the same(or less). At most, Lust would only have to worry about Pride and Wrath, and even Wrath could probably be persuaded to her side.

On a lighter note, I came across [[http://fma.wikia.com/wiki/File:Lingyaofma.jpg this recently]], which was a shot from the original anime wherein one state alchemist looks exactly like Ling, but with Greed's sunglasses. Given that for instance Basque Gran looks the same in both the anime and the manga, I doubt it was a coincidence that Arakawa chose to draw that guy. There's also the cool factor that with the shades, Ling (and the above image) looks like a JohnWoo character.

Think about it; Bradley's spent the entire series saying flat out that the only person he loves is his wife. He's also been the only homunculus to come close to showing doubts about the plan, even if it's only in a twitch of his eye at various points. The way I see it is, Bradley doesn't like the plan, but is far too programmed by Father to try and avert it or do anything but help it to it's conclusion, which of course entails the death of everyone in Amestris, including Mrs. Bradley. So what does he do? He helps the plan through to the end, and then decides it's time to die. Being a BloodKnight though (and the living incarnation of Wrath) he can't simply off himself, so instead he throws himself into one last battle against Scar, one of the most BadAss people in series, and one of the few with a legitimate chance of killing him. The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that this must play at least some part in Bradley's motivation, even if only at the subconcious level. Humanises him a bit too.

While RuleOfCool also applies, it's very improbable that someone who in military for many years in his life never using gun, But if you watches Maes Hughes, in every scene where he's fighting, he consistently using ''knives''. He spat on Envy by using a ''knife''. In Ishbal, where everyone using ''rifles'' he still brings them and never pick a rifle, or a ''handgun'', for that matter, [[{{Badass}} and still score impressive kills with them.]] It's very possible that he did pick guns at the beginning or the training, but for some reason or another, find knives to be more fit with him. Some possible reason:

[[WMG: The ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' Universe is really an alternate future of the {{Dragonlance}} Universe.]]
Okay, so let's say that the FMA universe is really an alternate timeline that split off from the {{Dragonlance}} universe during the early Fifth Age. The continent that Amestris is on is simply one of the other continents on Krynn, and the lack of races other than Humans can be explained by saying that some event caused them all to flee through planar portals long ago, OR there have only ever been Humans on the continent Amestris is on and since there never has been much contact between the continents in {{Dragonlance}} that there are in fact races like Elves, Dwarves, and Gnomes on the other continents. Now, the FMA universe is an alternate timeline from the early Fifth Age because there is only one moon, not three, and there are no gods around. Alchemy is just another form of Primal Sorcery and Mysticism. The Truth is an entity who managed to hijack the Gate of Souls (Krynn has a Gate of Souls that all souls pass though after they die, where they go not even the gods know) and use it for its own purposes.

In the alternate universe of FMA, Amestris is the geographic equivalency of Afghanistan. Cold and powerful Drachma to the north is Russia, Xing is clearly Chinese and the East Desert separating it from Amestris is the Gobi Desert. Creta is divided into many tribal areas, not unlike northern Pakistan and while it is not currently the case, in ancient times India was a major maritime trade hub due to its favorable geography, not unlike Aerugo. The recently conquered and largely pacifist Ishvalla may be either Tibet or Nepal. Prior to wars with British India and Czarist Russia during the Victorian era, Afghanistan was also a regional military power like Amestris.

[[WMG: Reborn!Selim did not [[spoiler: lose his memories]] ]]
He's just biding his time. After all, he's had centuries of experience in playing a helpless child. The injured bird he asked to 'fix' was probably just him trying to turn up the cute to deflect suspicion.
* When [[spoiler: Envy]] was reduced to their original form, they didn't forget anything, so it's likely that Pride didn't either.
* An omake even shows reborn!Selim threatening to tell Mrs Bradley that Grumman was the one who [[spoiler: Blew up King Bradley's train]]
