[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Homunculi]]
All of them provide examples of:
----
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Of a sin or aspect of human nature; and also a facet of Father's personality.
* ArtificialHuman: All of them except [[spoiler: Wrath]] were created by Father in order to create pawns and means for Father to achieve perfection. [[spoiler:Father himself was the very first artificial human.]]
* {{Badass}}: As TheSociopath {{Humanoid Abomination}}s, each with a unique ability and every one possessing an ''insane'' HealingFactor, even Gluttony is this by default.
* BigLittleBrother: All the Homunculi to Pride. [[spoiler:Pride is the oldest of Homunculi and looks like a child while the others look way older.]]
* DarkIsEvil: Generally true.
** DarkIsNotEvil: Greed, who made a HeelFaceTurn [[spoiler:twice]]. And Sloth doesn't seem actively malevolent, he just wants to sleep. Gluttony may be too dumb to know exactly what he's doing, but still belongs more in "evil" than "good".
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:In the manga and ''Brotherhood'', all seven of Father's creations are defeated in ways that reflect each of their respective deadly sins they represent!]]
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Except for Gluttony, who is bald and Father, who has blond hair.
* EvilGloating: Except for the dim Gluttony and Sloth, all of them are frequent perpetrators of this.
* HealingFactor: Can recover from fatal injuries without much problem. However, "killing" them enough times exhausts their factor and renders them dead for real. Due to the method of his creation and the effects on his body it had, Wrath is the exception, [[WhyWontYouDie not that he needs it]].
* HeroKiller: The heroes are terrified of them all, with Wrath, Pride, and Lust in particular living up to their reputation in combat.
* HumanoidAbomination: All are sociopaths (except arguably [[AntiVillain Greed]], [[PunchClockVillain Sloth]], and [[ObliviouslyEvil Gluttony]]) made through unnatural means with superhuman powers fueled by a stone filled to the brim with disembodied souls screaming in despair.
* TheIlluminati: [[spoiler:Its demonic leaders.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Especially Father.
* LackOfEmpathy: In varying degrees depending on the individual--Greed's definitely the least so in this aspect and Pride, Lust, and Father are definitely the most.
* MoralMyopia: Ed calls this out to [[spoiler: Pride]] and Ling does so to [[spoiler: Greed as well]]
* OurHomunculiAreDifferent: Obviously.
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: More like powered by a forsaken population of countless souls.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: All of the first 6 were created centuries ago by Father who himself is over 400 years old. Wrath and the Second Greed avert this rule.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In one of the openings there's a picture with all of them with half their face in a shadow and just one glowing red eye.
* RedRightHand: Their ouroboros tattoos.
* SevenDeadlySins: Each of their code names [[spoiler: only King Bradley and Selim have names to the public eye]] are named after one because they are split from Father in order to become the perfect being. [[spoiler: Almost all of them die in manners similar to the punishments in Dante's Inferno, with exception of Envy.]]
* TheSociopath: With the exception of arguably Greed, all of them display [[LackOfEmpathy no guilt to their crimes]] and often gloat about it, manipulate others to no end, lie about everything enjoy the sufferings of others and resort to killing their enemies brutally if pushed to a corner.
* TangledFamilyTree: [[spoiler:Father is Ed and Al's much-older half-brother, if he's anything, and his 'children,' the Homunculi, are their nephews and niece (or nieces if you [[AmbiguousGender count Envy as a woman]]). Despite being older. In one of the omakes they even try and beg a couple years of pocket money out of him.]]
* TrueCompanions: Envy, Lust and Gluttony were quite possibly the closest among the Homunculi and were almost always seen together. As you can imagine, [[spoiler:both Gluttony and Envy are horrified when Lust dies. Gluttony is left sitting there doing nothing but sobbing and Envy is quick to rage at King Bradley for letting it happen]].

'''Affiliation:''' Amestris Military/Homunculi\\
'''Speciality:''' Perfect Alchemy/Immortality]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/father11_3824.png

The creator and leader of the homunculi. [[spoiler:His true name is Homunculus--he was the first artificial human, having a body made out of Philosopher's Stone, and all other homunculi are pieces of him. He is almost identical to Hohenheim, since he was created from Hohenheim's blood back in Xerxes. Was responsible for the destruction of Xerxes, which gave him immortality. He spread a corrupted form of Xerxes alchemy to Amestris.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/IemasaKayumi (JP), Creator/KentWilliams (EN)
-----
* AbusiveParent: Burning Greed alive in a vat of molten metal, for one thing. He raises his children specifically to act as pawns in his plan.
** He doesn't care when any of the homunculi die. He just [[PragmaticVillainy keeps them around because they're useful.]] [[spoiler:Ed eventually points this out to the physically crumbling Pride, whom Father abandons in order to go replenish his own philosopher's stone.]]
* AndIMustScream[=/=]IronicHell: [[spoiler:His final fate. "[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Despair for the conceited.]]"]]
* AntagonisticOffspring: [[spoiler: In a bizarre way, he's this to Hohenheim.]]
* AntiMagic: He can turn off alchemy. Not just the alchemy of one person, but '''''all the alchemy in the country.''''' This only applies to Amestrian alchemy, so people like Scar or May Chang are immune to this.
** This is because [[spoiler:all the Amestrians have to go through a layer of his Philosopher's Stone to draw on energy. Once Scar activates a circle that nullifies it, Ed and Al resume throwing things at him.]]
* ArchnemesisDad: To Greed
* AssimilationBackfire: [[spoiler:After absorbing Greed again in the end for his Philosopher's Stone, Greed rebels from within by turning Father's body into frail graphite.]]
* BaitTheDog: When he meets the Elrics, he cheerfully chats with them about their relationship with Van Hohenheim, mends their wounds, and gently admonishes them for not taking care of themselves. Then he tells Gluttony to eat Ling and responds to Ed's plea for Ling's life with "I don't care."
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler: "Despair for the conceited"]].
* BigBad
* {{Bishonen}}: [[spoiler: See OneWingedAngel, below]]
* BishounenLine: [[spoiler:Form 1--A tiny black blob with one eye. Form 2--A middle-aged man. Form 3--A human-shaped LivingShadow covered in eyes. Form 4--A miles-tall one-eyed giant. Form 5--A golden-haired youth. Form 6--A vein-covered, white-haired youth. Form 7--Back to Form 1.]]
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Only in his Old Man Form [[spoiler:and his Final Form]] his True Form did not have hair [[spoiler:as well as his Blob Form and Giant Cyclops Form]]
* BodyHorror: He can do some ''really'' creepy stuff with it, especially when helping his Homunculi.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:He's Ed and Al's brother.]]
* TheChessmaster: With four hundred years of planning behind him.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He comes off as one, but only because his concerns are so far above humans' that they can rarely understand his thought processes.
* CreativeSterility: When it's pointed out to him that all he tends to do is mimic humans, his response is essentially [[ShutUpKirk "Fuck you."]]
* DarkIsEvil[=/=]LightIsNotGood: He's both! Started as a flask-dwelling creepy little black blob and afterwards reshaped his body into looking like Hohenheim's, meaning he became a noble looking old man wearing white robes, invoking traditional depictions of {{Top God}}s. [[spoiler: Afterwards, he became a human sized black blob with eyes everywhere. Then he became a gigantic cyclops. And THEN he reshaped his body once more into becoming a sexy teenage version of Hohenheim]]; the only consensus to be made out of this is that he is evil but prefers more attractive forms.
** Taken further to an extent in the anime. Whenever we're shown Father's lair, it seems to glow with a strange silver light. [[spoiler: When he sheds his human form and becomes the black blob during his fight with Hohenheim, the room becomes much darker, almost insinuating that his old body had been ''emitting that light''.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: Specializes in this, ''especially'' the "careful what you wish for" part. [[spoiler:The King of Xerxes and Central Command were both promised immortality for their participation in many horrific projects culminating in the sacrifice of every soul in their respective countries, none the wiser that this all meant his feast of souls included them as part of the meal. These Faustian deals are in fact the driving force behind the entire plot. There's also appealing to Solf J. Kimblee's sadistic sense of curiosity to get Kimblee to work with the Homunculi and cornering Ling Yao into accepting Greed, though these two [[HoistByHisOwnPetard came back to bite him in the ass]].]]
* DevilInPlainSight: During his early days as the [[spoiler:"shadow in the flask"]], he was obviously up to no good but unfortunately no one in Xerxes picked up on it enough to avoid becoming an UnwittingPawn.
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler:Or the nearest equivalent in this universe.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: He appears twice, each time for only a moment, in the first episode when he detects the Freezing Alchemist's huge transmutation circle in Central.
* EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler:His true form, a human-shaped blob of LivingShadow covered in massive eyes and mouths.]]
* ElementalPowers: [[spoiler: He gains a few after consuming The Truth.]]
** BlowYouAway: [[spoiler:Can create Tornadoes from his hands.]]
** MagmaMan: [[spoiler:At one point, he summons a large lava stream.]]
** ThePowerOfTheSun: [[spoiler:So powerful is he, he can induce nuclear fusion and create mini-Suns in the palm of his hand. Goes great with his LightIsNotGood motif.]]
** PureEnergy: [[spoiler:He can fire massive, WaveMotionGun-calibre energy blasts.]]
** ShockAndAwe: [[spoiler:He uses it as a protective shield around his entire body, though he needs to bring it down momentarily in order to attack on his own.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To [[spoiler:Hohenheim. They have similar appearance, at first, but contrasting goals and philosophy.]]
* EvilPlan: To achieve 'perfection'. Hohenheim states its actually [[spoiler: to escape his flask which only made bigger after the depopulation of Xerxes.]]
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: [[spoiler: His true form.]]
* FatalFlaw: His condescension towards humans, outlook on them as being simple energy for his goals, and inability to comprehend what makes them tick in a spiritual/moral/ethical/psychological sense beyond darker desires is ultimately what comes back to bite him in the ass. All he sees in the sins he separated from himself are the bad and thus only the bad in humans, but in truth those deadly sins aren't all bad as Greed told us. He certainly never expected [[spoiler:Scar]] to be a thorn in his side, for instance.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Though he drops the facade after his first few appearances.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He started out as [[spoiler: a small, limbless, rather unimpressive-looking creature trapped in a flask. Then he happened to strike up a conversation with a young slave, and things just escalated from there.]]
* GambitRoulette: Manipulating [[spoiler:the development of an entire ''country'']] to suit his plans.
* AGlassOfChianti: He swivels a glass around at one point, although that's [[{{Squick}} not wine he's drinking]]
* AGodAmI: Has this attitude throughout the manga; he believes all other life forms are too far beneath him to even be worthy of contempt. [[spoiler:Accomplishes it for real, but not for very long.]]
* GoodPowersBadPeople: Can heal any injury instantly [[spoiler:because he is a living Philosopher's Stone]]. Also counts as subverting NoCureForEvil.
* GrandpaGod: His appearance definitely invokes this, but he's really more a SatanicArchetype than anything.
* HairAntennae: [[spoiler: After absorbing God]]
* TheHeavy: [[spoiler: Not only would Amestris not been created, but none of the cast would've ever been born if it weren't for his plans]].
* HijackingCthulhu: [[spoiler: [[BigBad Father]] uses a massive-scale alchemy technique to absorb [[{{God}} Truth]] into his body. He was never weak to begin with, but Truth is definitely far more powerful. That said, this ends up being a partial subversion, since he eventually [[HoistByHisOwnPetard loses control]] and gets dragged into the GateOfTruth.]]
* HumanResources: [[spoiler: He is basically a living philosopher's stone. When Hohenheim makes a comment about Father's CreativeSterility, he recreates the bodies of the Xerxes souls... right before melting them down AGAIN and turning them in a WaveMotionGun.]]
* IJustWantToBeFree: [[spoiler:His initial reason for all he's done is wanting to escape the flask. Even when he gets a body, its noted to just be a larger flask, something that both Hohenheim and Truth note.]]
* ImmortalityImmorality: [[spoiler:The Philosopher's Stone is made by melting down the bodies of living people and trapping their souls within a red liquid.]]
* IronicEcho: During the final battle, he talks of how despair is truth. [[spoiler: After he's defeated and sent back to the gate, the physical interpretation of "Truth" throws these words right back at him before the gate pulls him in. Also right before getting sucked back to the gate, he yells how he wishes to know everything and be free. Little does he realize that he actually gained everything he wanted when he got a physical body. Regardless, he chooses to imprison himself down the central command of Amestris, cutting contact with everyone else and therefore becoming no different from the time when he was living inside a small flask.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: As he explains to Ling, he considers himself so far above humans that he literally feels ''nothing'' towards them.
* LiteralSplitPersonality[=/=]SelfDuplication: He "perfected" his soul by splitting off parts of it into separate bodies ([[spoiler:in this case, the parts corresponding to the seven deadly sins]]). Rather than destroying the beings created by this separation, he kept them around to do his dirty work for him.
* ManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:More like "man behind the military".]]
* ManipulativeBastard: One of his last tricks involves [[spoiler: calmly having the rotting, moaning population of Xerxes emerge from his body. As a ''distraction.'']]
* MeaningfulName: He is the ''father'' of the homunculi. In addition, his eye catch illustration refers to him as ''Our Father''. Our Father is the term that refers to God in The Lord's Prayer of Christianity: [[spoiler: His ultimate goal is to become a perfect being by attaining the power of God.]]
* MonsterProgenitor: To the rest of the homunculi. Hence the name "Father."
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: When he meets the Elric brothers he gets very close in their face trying to recognize them, much to Ed's discomfort.
* OmnicidalManiac: Well, it's worse; ([[spoiler:absorbing everyone in Xerxes and Amestris for the power of a god, which puts them in an AndIMustScream scenario]]), but the results are pretty similar.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:During his fight with Hohenheim, Father gets the souls forming his body to "vomit him up", revealing his true form, a LivingShadow in the shape of a man, covered in eyes. He undergoes a second transformation when his "perfect" form is that of Hohenheim as an adolescent.]]
* ParentalFavoritism: Pride is considered to be Father's favorite.
* PhlebotinumOverload: [[spoiler:After the 50 million Amestrian souls are removed from him, Hohemheim invokes this on him, pointing out that "the few Xerxian souls [he has] left aren't enough to contain [his] so-called 'God'". After a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from the combined forces of the entire Briggs army, a blinded Roy Mustang, Greed and finally Edward Elric (with his arm restored) completely depletes his philosopher's stone, the power of God causes him to immediately ''implode''.]]
* ThePowerOfCreation: Personally created each of the homunculi.
* PureIsNotGood: He claims to have purified himself of emotions by giving those aspects of himself to his "children", but as noted by Hohenheim, he's probably worse now than he was when he had those emotions.
** We see in one of the final chapters that [[spoiler:his GateOfTruth, unlike those of others, is ''completely blank'']].
** Though it's stated numerous times that Father has expelled all of his sins, it's interesting to note he acts in a way similar to that of the sins: He seeks power at all costs (Greed); views humans as "ants" (Pride); devours his home cooked meals with no self control (Gluttony); has a desire for a family like humans (Envy); prefers to let others do his bidding for him (Sloth); feels anger towards any opposition, principally Hohenheim (Wrath); and shows complete disregard and manipulation of human beings (Lust); so perhaps he didn't really lose them. Which leads us to…
* SatanicArchetype: [[spoiler:He is the secret chief commander of [[TheIlluminati a deep shadow cult conspiracy]] using a country run by a military industrial dictatorship with a [[PoweredByAForsakenChild sinisterly]]-[[ManipulativeBastard manipulated]] source of prosperity and power, [[DiabolicalMastermind ALL his doing]]. In spite of being responsible for all of the known mass bloodshed within the series universe, few know that he or his [[AncientConspiracy conspiracy]] even exists. His [[EldritchAbomination seed homunculi]], surrounded in [[EsotericMotifs occult symbolism]] the whole nine yards, largely born as the results and [[AnthropomorphicPersonification walking icons]] of [[SevenDeadlySins every single vice]] known to man and to his own personality, refer to him as "Father". He's about ten insidious layers of [[LightIsNotGood misguiding light]], and that's putting it mildly. The King of Xerxes made a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with him]] to become immortal at the expense of the freedom of every soul in his own entire nation only to [[UnwittingPawn quickly find out the hard way]] [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves how Faustian it really was for himself]], and Solf J. Kimblee is heavily implied to have wagered his own soul in a way just to see how the homunculi's games would play out; knowing this makes it fairly easy to connect the dots about all the main officers in Central Command. Still not convinced this guy's the ''FMA'' crossover between {{Satan}} and the [[GodOfEvil Demiurge]]? Fine. '''His ultimate goal/desire is to conquer and replace {{God}}.''']]
* ShadowArchetype: To Hohenheim.
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:As the Dwarf in the Flask. He needed to be this to fool Hohenheim into going along with his plan.]]
* ThirdEye: Although his true form has a lot more eyes than that, he's shown a couple of times forming a third eye on his forehead and pulling out a spare philosopher's stone. [[spoiler:When the souls he absorbed from Hohenheim rebel, they cause a drill bit to painfully burst out from the same place.]]
* TinMan: Although he claims to have no emotions he actually does display them, sometimes as seemingly friendly ditziness, but also anger and great cruelty. If anything, it's more like his emotions are fairly low key. Hohenheim points out that while he claims to not want a family, the fact that he created seven "children" and had them call him Father betray his motives.
** Which takes Envy's existence into FridgeBrilliance if you think about it.
** It also foreshadows that Greed actually wants friends since he acts friendly after absorbing Greed; once he gives Greed to Ling he becomes a monster again.
* TheTrickster: [[spoiler:In his earliest days.]]
* TrulySingleParent: [[spoiler:Each one of the Homunculi is born from him. Each is a representation of one of his sins, or so he claims.]]
* TheUnfettered: He sees everyone, enemy and ally alike, as pawns or stepping stones to his goal.
* VillainousBreakdown:
** [[spoiler:Undergoes a minor one in at the end of the series, when he is OutGambitted by Hohenheim.]]
** [[spoiler:He then has a ''major'' when he loses control of God.]]
* VocalDissonance: In the anime, he keeps his "elderly man" voice even after [[spoiler:transforming into his sexy younger form.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Not that you'd know or anything...
* ZergRush: [[spoiler:It takes the combined efforts of Ed, Izumi, Mustang, Hawkeye, Major Armstrong, Zampano, Lan Fan, Darius, Greed/Ling, and ''an entire military company'' just to wear him down to the point to where Ed can move in to close combat]].

'''Speciality:''' Spears]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lust11_3007.png

A seductress of immense beauty and cruelty. Father's emissary to his pawns.

->Voiced by: Creator/KikukoInoue (JP), Creator/LauraBailey (EN)
-----
* AbsurdlySharpClaws: Her primary weapon, which has earned her the InUniverseNickname "the Ultimate Spear".
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She's tall, aloof, and as deadly as she is beautiful.
* AuthorAppeal: In addition to muscular men (see Armstrong), the author has acknowledged that she really likes drawing buxom women such as Lust ("Women should be ''vavoom''!").
* AxCrazy: A bit more polite about it than, say Envy, but it's made pretty obvious that her "lust" is a lust for violence and murder. To drive the point home, she's the only Homunculus who is not against killing sacrifice candidates (something that even Envy knows it's not allowed to do), although it took a hell of a lot to push to that decision.
* {{Badass}}: Takes a ridiculous amount of punishment before she even starts to consider dying.
* TheBaroness: Sexpot version. She even seduces Havoc.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Gluttony, though in a brother/sister manner rather than a sexual one.
* BrainsAndBrawn: The Brains to Gluttony and Envy's Brawn.
* BuxomIsBetter: She has pretty impressive breasts, though it only gets brought up once.
-->'''Mustang:''' I can see how she tricked you. You've always been a sucker for big boobs.\\
'''Havoc:''' I'm sorry sir. ''(cue CherubicChoir)'' I just love them so much!
* CardCarryingVillain: Enjoys being evil.
* CombatSadomasochist: Heavily implied. She's normally cold and collected, but in combat displays a truly sadistic streak.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Whenever she's damaged, she always regenerates one of her arms first, so she can promptly counter attack.
* DarkActionGirl: You had better believe it.
* TheDarkChick: The only unambiguously female member of the Homunculi. She's also a manipulator on a team of arrogant brutes and sociopaths.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Repeatedly burned to death by MrFanservice when she was about to kill the woman who almost certainly has a BodyguardCrush on him. Lampshaded by Lust as she fades into dust. In Dante's ''Purgatorio'', the lustful are made to pass through a wall of cleansing fire before passing from Purgatory. Lust dies by being incinerated. Lust actually embodies the sin of bloodlust, and not lust of a sexual nature - she kept Roy alive specifically to fulfill her desire of seeing him suffer until his death, and that decision, which had underestimated Roy's will to survive, ended up being what killed her. Lust enjoys causing pain to humans and killing them. Roy, a human who admits to like fighting a homunculus, ends up killing Lust not for enjoyment, but to save others.]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre Her main attack is called the "Ultimate Lance" and can penetrate anything]].
* TheDragon: PlayedWith. Early on in the series she's without a doubt the most notable antagonist of the Homunculi, and is the one who personally coordinates their efforts to manipulate alchemists to advance the plot. However, this is later downplayed once it's revealed that Wrath [[spoiler:is King Bradley and is doing this on a national level]] and that Pride [[spoiler:is posing as his kid and is the true personal coordinator of the Homunculi's individual approach to alchemists]].
* DyingCurse: [[spoiler:To Roy.]]
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* EvilGenius: She's probably the best in her group at manipulating people and one of the more strategic of the Homunculi. Not ''The'' EvilGenius in a FiveBadBand sense (that's Wrath's job) but ''an'' EvilGenius. Keep in mind, she was orchestrating multiple events like Father Cornello all around the country for ''centuries''.
* EvilIsSexy: [[invoked]]She was the former ImageSource. Jean Havoc has a brief discussion with Roy Mustang about how she was able to... distract him.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:She takes her death remarkably well]].
-->'''Lust:''' [[spoiler:You killed me...I hate losing, but there are worse ways to die than at the hands of a man like you...I love how cold and focused your eyes are...I look forward to the day that those eyes are wide with ''agony''...]]
* FauxAffablyEvil
* FemmeFatalons
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:As she dies she says she looks forward to the day that Roy's eyes are "Clouded with agony". During the finale, Roy is forced to perform Human Transmutation and has his sight taken as a price.]]
* {{Gainaxing}}: Complete with sound effects.
* GoOutWithASmile
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler: After getting killed by Mustang, she calmly accepts her defeat, remarking that there are worse ways to die.]]
* InSeriesNickname: "Ms. Ultimate Spear", by Greed.
* IntimateMarks: As befitting her character, her Ouroboros mark is right on her cleavage.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Even earlier than the [[Anime/{{FullmetalAlchemist}} 2003 Anime.]] ]]
* KillItWithFire: [[spoiler:Roy roasts her repeatedly till her stone runs out. Just as her lance was an inch from spiking through his head.]]
* LadyOfWar
* LightIsNotGood: Her fake name Solaris is associated with the sun.
* {{Lust}}: Well, duh! In her case it seems to be a lust for violence and chaos rather than being sexual in nature (though she's an ''object'' of lust).
* MadeOfIron: Even for a Homunculus the woman is tough, taking more punishment than the rest of her siblings put together. No particular explanation is really given.
* TheMagnificent: Lust the Lascivious.
* ManipulativeBitch: On a far smaller scale than say, Father, but see what she did to Havoc.
* MsFanservice: What would you expect with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a name like that?]]
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: "She's dust...I definitely cremated her." Sorry, Roy...
* OfCorsetsSexy
* OperaGloves
* OppositeSexClone: To an extent. There's some FanDisservice when you notice how she has some of Father's features.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Gluttony.
* {{Pride}}: Very much so, despite it not being "her" sin.
* RasputinianDeath
* RavenHairIvorySkin
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Envy's red.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:Inverted/Played with. She's one of the most {{Badass}} Homunculi, yet was killed fairly early on to show that Mustang does ''not'' screw around. It's worth noting that her death is also the first real setback that Father has suffered in four hundred years.]]
* SarcasmMode: Switches to this frequently: "Oh no, did I get your ignition gloves all wet? Silly me."
* TheSchlubPubSeductionDeduction: [[spoiler:Poor, paralyzed Havoc...]]
* SmugSnake[=/=]SmugSuper: She is legitimately powerful and cunning, but ultimately it's her overconfidence in that power and cunning that leads to her downfall.
* SmurfettePrinciple: Unlike the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], Lust is the only unambiguously female Homunculus.
* SoftSpokenSadist
* SuperiorSpecies: Believes Homunculi are innately superior to humans.
* TheVamp
* VaporWear
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:A mild example, but she dies rather suddenly and much earlier than any other Homunculus (the others all survive until the last arc); and contrary to her incarnation in the 2003 anime, her character doesn't get much CharacterDevelopment.]]
* WhatBeautifulEyes: A really, really creepy variant of this trope directed at Roy. [[spoiler:After he kills her, she tells him that she admires how cold and focused his eyes are...and she wants to see those eyes ''go wide with agony'']].
* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: "I've sent [[FatIdiot Gluttony]] and [[HairTriggerTemper Envy]]. They will not fail."
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Her reaction when Roy calls her a monster after showcasing her abilities and Philosopher's Stone. She claims that the homunculi are "the next link in the evolutionary chain" of humanity.
* WolverineClaws
* WomanInBlack

[floatboxright:
'''Affiliation:''' Homunculi\\
'''Speciality:''' Eating Everything/Imperfect Gate]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gluttony11_6250.png

A simpleton who loves to eat, and will eat anything. A heavy-hitter who plays backup to the other Homunculi as needed. Has an odd, symbiotic relationship with Lust.

->Voiced by: Creator/TetsuShiratori (JP), Chris Cason (EN)
-----
* {{Acrofatic}}: Surprisingly quick for his size.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: By no means is Gluttony handsome, but his Brotherhood incarnation is less drool-prone and this one's 'alternate form' is much less grotesque than the white version of Envy that the 2003 version used.
* AffablyEvil: Relatively friendly and polite. He even [[spoiler:apologized to Al for eating his brother (it doesn't help that he wasn't supposed to eat him) and leads him to Father with the intention of helping get him, Ling and Envy out of his stomach]].
* BackFromTheDead: Scar once exhausted his HealingFactor and killed him for real. However, Father was nearby and able to resurrect him with all his memories without much trouble.
** BackForTheDead: [[spoiler:However not long after finally returning, he's eaten by Pride.]]
* BaldOfEvil: In contrast to the other Homunculus who have hair.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Lust. It's not [[BrotherSisterIncest romantic]].
* BellyMouth: In his OneWingedAngel form.
* BerserkButton: Hurting Lust in front of him will almost ensure that you'll get eaten.
* BigEater: As per his "sin", he is never ever full.
* BrainsAndBrawn: The Brawn to Lust's Brains.
* TheBrute: Very strong, none too bright, and used by Father and Lust as a living wrecking ball.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Can I eat him/her?"
** IronicEcho: [[spoiler:Pride says it to Greed after absorbing Gluttony and gaining his ravenous hunger.]]
* CurbstompBattle: On the receiving end by [[spoiler: a now Automail armed Lan Fan]], and Ling.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Eaten by Pride.]]
* DumbMuscle: Gluttony has no real understanding of really anything. All he does it throw himself around and try to eat things.
* EldritchAbomination: About on par on Pride and Father in this regard; the other Homunculi are relatively attractive [[HumanoidAbomination humanoids]], but Gluttony? He's a physically repulsive bottomless pit whose stomach leads to another dimension.
* ExtremeOmnivore: He's the embodiment of Father's gluttony.
* FatBastard: Though he's hardly mean about it.
* FatIdiot
* HungryMenace: Normally he's docile and really AffablyEvil, but when hes given permission to eat something he becomes very dangerous.
* ImAHumanitarian: Seems to prefer eating humans.
* IronicDeath: [[spoiler:He is eaten by Pride.]]
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Who would have expected that Gluttony would end up being eaten by someone else? Still AlasPoorVillain.]]
* LetsGetDangerous: Face it, Mustang--he's one of the Homunculi. You should have expected him to be a NotSoHarmlessVillain.
* LightningBruiser: Manages to keep up with [[SuperSpeed Wrath]] and [[BadassNormal Ling]].
* TheMagnificent: Gluttony the Voracious
* MoralityPet: Seems to be this to Lust; she's genuinely fond of him.
* TheNoseKnows: Has a very good sense of smell, which makes him dangerous during Greed's groups fight with Pride, as without light to see him, Gluttony has the advantage.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Easily the most docile of the Homunculi when not eating, but once he realizes that Mustang's the one who [[spoiler:killed Lust]], he goes ''ballistic''.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Gluttony is not much eviler than a great white shark. He's just hungry and completely unaware of concepts like morality.
* OneTrackMindedHunger
* OneWingedAngel: His chest can open up in a fanged mouth. Unusual for the trope is that he can change back.
* OverlyLongTongue: That thing is huge!
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Lust.
* PsychopathicManChild
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:"Roy Mustang....'''killed Lust!'''"]]
* SayMyName: '''MUSTAAAAAAAAANG!!!'''
* UnskilledButStrong: In a manner similar to Sloth, Gluttony does not have any real fancy tricks aside from his Imperfect Gate. He uses his massive physical strength to win so he can devour them.
* VillainousGlutton: Well, ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin duh]]''.
* VillainousFriendship: With Lust.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Technically more like [[TheAssimilator Your Usefulness Is Greater To Me Dead]].]]

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/envy11_1249.png

A misanthropic little psychopathic shape-shifter. If Envy can KickTheDog, Envy will. Father's chief spy and instigator.

For the sake of clarity, Envy will now be referred to by [[AmbiguousGender they/their/they're]] pronouns.

->Voiced by: Creator/MinamiTakayama (JP), Creator/WendyPowell (EN)
-----
* AccidentalPervert: Envy walks in on Edward after Edward just left the shower, and thus has no pants or towel on. Screaming ensues.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Noticeably a lot more muscular in ''Brotherhood'' than in the first series. [[MusclesAreMeaningless They're also a weaker fighter in this series]].
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:Invoked by Edward during Envy's death.]]
* AmbiguousGender: [[WordOfGod Nobody knows Envy's true gender, not even Envy]]. That said, other characters refer to Envy with male pronouns.
** For what it's worth, Envy's ''true'' form is most likely a case of NoBiologicalSex.
* AxCrazy: See the above image? [[spoiler: That's their look when they admits to starting the Ishvalian Civil War.]]
* BareYourMidriff
* BerserkButton: Envy really, really does not like being called "ugly".
* BetaTestBaddie: [[spoiler:And [[DrivenToSuicide they kill themselves]] when someone points it out.]]
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:In contrast to the 2003 series, Envy in Brotherhood is a borderline ButtMonkey. The only time they actually win a fight is when [[WorfHadTheFlu Ed had broke his automail arm.]] Dr. Marcoh completely immobilizes them ''twice''.]]
* BoisterousWeakling: Brags a lot, despises humans and is prompt to KickTheDog as often as they can. And gets their ass handed to them in every serious fight they have [[spoiler:except in their OneWingedAngel form… and ''even that one'' [[IncrediblyLamePun backfires]] horribly against Mustang.]] Made even more obvious when it turns out [[spoiler:their real true form is that of a minuscule larva-thingy.]]
* TheBrute: Arguably. Envy's got a HairTriggerTemper, a profoundly limited sense of subtlety, relies on brute force in combat, and seems to be relatively low on the Homunculi totem pole. [[spoiler:They are also the biggest homunculus]].
* BullyingADragon: Envy admits to Mustang that [[spoiler:they killed his best friend]] and brags about it. All that mocking stops the moment Mustang sizzles out their eyes.
* CardCarryingVillain: Just look at how they gloat to Ed and Ling about how they were the one who sparked the Ishval Civil War. It's obvious they love being a heartless, evil monster.
* ChewingTheScenery: "I'm ''ALLLIIIIIIIIIIIVE!''"
* ChewToy: A regenerating one with an incredible talent to piss powerful people off. Envy takes SO much abuse during the series that their massive amount of hitpoints (combined with their terrible fighting skills) starts to look like a [[{{BlessedWithSuck}} disadvantage]] since it only allows Envy's enemies to hurt them more.
** PlayedForLaughs in Brotherhood; the [[CurbStompBattle "fight"]] between him and Roy basically consists of [[spoiler: Envy starting to say something, getting the shit burned out of them, and then running as far and as fast as they can]]. Rinse and repeat.
* ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive
* ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler:Two ways: first, Envy's ''true'' form is a little [[FetusTerrible fetus-thing]] that you could kill by stepping on it. Second, Envy's attempts to go OneWingedAngel against Roy led to the response, "I can't believe you made yourself a ''bigger'' target." Cue OhCrap.]]
* CombatTentacles
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:[[DrivenToSuicide Commits suicide]] in humiliation when their envy of humanity is exposed and pitied by one of those humans (Ed).]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes
* DontYouDarePityMe: Upon its final defeat, [[spoiler: Envy is so completely humiliated that Ed actually [[SympathyForTheDevil pities them]] that they commit suicide]].
* DrivenByEnvy
* DrivenToSuicide: They [[spoiler: rips their own Philosopher's Stone and crushes it in their bare hands upon his final defeat]].
* EldritchAbomination: Evokes [[UncannyValley the same feeling]] with their [[OneWingedAngel true form]].
* EnemyMine: Briefly worked with Ed and Ling to escape [[spoiler: Gluttony's stomach.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: To be fair, they have admitted this. [[spoiler:And [[BetaTestBaddie it pisses them off]].]] Leads to their eventual breakdown after they're confronted with the fact that [[spoiler:they're jealous of humanity's ability to be moral and strive toward redemption]]
* EvilSoundsRaspy: Envy's voice in the anime.
* EyeScream: Mustang repeatedly flash-fries Envy's eyeballs during their fight. [[SarcasmMode Ouch]].
* FalseFlagOperation: [[spoiler:Envy took the form of an Amestrian soldier and fired the shot that started the Ishvalan War]]. Years later, [[spoiler:Envy took the form of Father Cornello to stir up unrest in Lior]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: Their attempts at being cordial only underscore the fact that they don't give a shit about the other character's hatred.
* FetusTerrible: [[spoiler: [[ClippedWingAngel Their true form]]]].
* ForTheEvulz
* FriendlyEnemy: Likes to ''play'' this role. [[SubvertedTrope It's all lies, of course.]]
* GreenEyedMonster[=/=]TheResenter: [[spoiler:They're jealous of humans for having such strong bonds and for being able to make friends of enemies.]] [[spoiler: This is a serious case of FridgeBrilliance when you remember this: Jealousy is completely natural, and is pretty much impossible to not experience in life. Envy, the '''unnatural''' is when you wish to ''cause someone harm out of jealousy.'' This explains why they love causing humans pain.]] Hilariously, his true form [[spoiler:is a green monster]].
* HairTriggerTemper: Hates being insulted, by anyone, about anything, and has a fuse ''shorter than Ed's''.
* HumiliationConga: [[spoiler:OutGambitted into their fetus form and carried around. Moments after regaining their powerful form they're hunted by Mustang. Then driven to suicide by Ed pointing their fatal flaw.]]
* HybridMonster
* {{Hypocrite}}: Loves to cause pain and agony and laugh giddily over it, but if the tables turn expect Envy to complain the loudest of any of the Homunculi.
* IJustWantToBeYou: [[spoiler:For all humans.]]
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: [[spoiler:Toward humanity.]]
* {{Irony}}: One of Envy's abilities is to transform into humans. [[spoiler:Which must really tick Envy off, because even though Envy can pass off as a human, deep down Envy knows they can never be one. The one thing that turns the tables in a fight against any of their opponents is that they can only use information they find out about anyone they transform into--Hawkeye uses this against them (by [[DoubleSubversion bluffing that Mustang calls her Riza.]])]]
** Is the one who most consistently makes fun of Ed's height, [[spoiler:is later revealed that their true form is [[FetusTerrible a little fish-thing]] that you could hold with two fingers.]]
* JerkAss: To psychopathic levels.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Excels at this. It often backfires.
* KickTheDog: Constantly and enjoys it immensely.
* TheMagnificent: Envy the Jealous.
* ManipulativeBastard: Can be this when forced to be subtle. They manage to trick May Chang into [[spoiler: indirectly letting them regain their normal form]].
* NoSell: Takes a punch to the face from Ed and doesn't budge an inch.
* OhCrap: There's no other possible way to describe Envy's reaction when they realize [[spoiler:just ''how'' bad of an idea pissing off Roy was]].
** What's more, is that the only reason Envy tried to fight [[spoiler: Roy,]] is because Envy forgot [[spoiler: who killed Lust.]]
** Envy also went into a monologue after seeing Roy's own OhCrap face after [[spoiler:Envy turned into Hughes' wife,]] saying it was the exact look Hughes gave Envy. [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything The memory and current situation left Envy very satisfied at the time.]]
** There's also a more minor one when Hawkeye [[BluffTheImposter implies there is something going on between her and the Colonel]] [[spoiler:when Envy is disguised as Mustang]].
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:A giant green monster.]]
* PoisonousCaptive: [[spoiler:When Envy is trapped in a jar, they're able to play on May Chang's fear for her clan and talk her into going back instead of taking them to Xing, which allows Envy to get free and obtain a second Philosopher's Stone.]]
* {{Pride}}: They're always going on about how much better they are than humans, and about how stupid and pathetic humans are, to the point where they end up coming off as being more prideful than Pride himself. And when it comes out that they're actually [[spoiler:jealous of humans, they commit suicide rather than live with the shame.]]
* PsychoForHire
* PsychopathicManchild: They a tendency toward some [[HairTriggerTemper rather erratic fits of anger]] when things don't go their way, not unlike a pubescent teenager throwing a temper tantrum.
* RageQuit: [[spoiler:Commits suicide by ripping the philosopher's stone out of their own body when they realize that they're not just defeated (again) but an object of pity.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Lust's blue.
* SayItWithHearts
* {{Shapeshifter}}: Ties with UnlimitedWardrobe.
** ShapeshifterBaggage: Averted. Ling notices [[spoiler:that Envy's footprints are unusually deep, indicating the extremely high density of Envy's body, which is due to the enormous size of their true form.]]
** ShapeShifterGuiltTrip: Works on Hughes, fails horribly against Roy.
** ShapeShifterWeapon: Envy can transform parts of the body into weapons, including a sword, a ''snake'', and shapeless tentacles.
** VoluntaryShapeshifting
* SissyVillain: Unlike the previous adaptation of [[AdaptationalBadass Envy]], this Envy is more effeminate.
* SlasherSmile: Always has one of these--[[spoiler:Envy's true form is composed of a bunch of horrible faces, most bearing this expression as well.]]
* StealthPun / VisualPun: [[spoiler: Envy, the big green monster.]]
* StupidEvil: Not consistently, but pretty often. Envy is just way too sadistic to restrain the urge to brag about their atrocities at times when it's clearly not a best idea. This is also probably why Envy's UnskilledButStrong--Envy just lacks the self-control to be a better fighter.
* TentacleRope: Pulls it off against Hawkeye after she [[BluffTheImposter sees through their Mustang disguise]]. Doesn't get much farther than wrapping her up and slamming her to the ground before the real Mustang catches up to them again.
* TooDumbToLive: No, Envy, taunting a PersonOfMassDestruction that's already [[spoiler: slain another Homunculus]] about gleefully killing his [[spoiler: best friend]] is '''NOT''' a good idea. Although in the end [[spoiler: Mustang isn't the one to finish them off]].
* UnskilledButStrong: Envy is a ''terrible'' fighter in the manga/''Brotherhood'' adaption. Thanks to its shapeshifting abilities, and the [[spoiler: sheer weight Envy can put behind every blow]], this doesn't often matter [[spoiler: at least until the encounter with Roy]].
* VaginaDentata: Their [[spoiler:''true'']] true form, revealed after [[spoiler:Dr. Marcoh]] defeats them has an aura of this.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:'''Completely''' loses it after realizing they're outmatched during their "[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown fight]]" against Roy.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Started the war in Ishval by deliberately shooting an Ishvallan child in the head, while disguised as a soldier.]] Years later, Envy still seems to think of this as one of the most enjoyable things they ever done.

A homunculus so greedy he won't play second fiddle to anyone, not even his creator. Bodyguard and watchdog to Father, that is until he goes rogue.

->Voiced by: YuuichiNakamura (JP), Creator/ChrisPatton (EN)
-----
* AffablyEvil: In a series filled with [[FauxAffablyEvil many]] [[LackOfEmpathy types]] [[BadBoss of]] [[ForTheEvulz horrible]] [[TheSociopath villains]], Greed stands out as the only villain who is really a nice guy. He is undeniably the most polite, classy, and the least violent Homunculus of all. Also, unlike other villains, Greed technically isn't evil just [[{{Greed}} willing to do whatever to get what he wants]].
--> '''Greed''' (to a captured Alphonse): The name's Greed, and I want to be your friend.
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]], his ambition was what drove him to separate from Father and become an AntiVillain [[spoiler:and later an AntiHero]].
* AntiVillain: [[NobleDemon Type I]] with a bit of Type IV. Greed may be a selfish bastard, but he [[BenevolentBoss values and cares deeply for his followers]]. He's also the only Homunculus who doesn't resent humans nor is a cold-blooded psychopath. Moreover, he's arguably the only villain in the series who is [[AffablyEvil genuinely a nice guy]]. Anyone would be forgiven for wanting to work under him. [[spoiler:It's no surprise the he later becomes an AntiHero]].
* {{Badass}}: Actually defying Father took guts.
** BadassBaritone: He's voiced by YuuichiNakamura.
* BadGuyBar: The Devil's Nest, his hideout.
* BenevolentBoss: To his minions--or, as he calls them, "possessions".
* BookEnds: [[spoiler: Is both the first and last of the "sin" homunculi to die in the series]].
* ByronicHero: Has elements of this. A greedy but rebellious being, Greed listens to no one but himself. Not even Father, can make Greed truly obey him. To this end, Greed only [[ChaoticNeutral acts on his whims]] without much regard to others. He also shows some charisma as he is able to attract followers, not least thanks to his [[AffablyEvil socializing]] nature.
* {{Catchphrase}}:
** "I'm called Greed, because I'm greedy. I want money, I want power, I want women, I WANT EVERYTHING!"
** "There's no such thing as 'no such thing.'"
* CodeName: The Ultimate Shield
* CoolShades
* DarkChick: Was this before he betrayed Father.
* DarkIsNotEvil: When he defects from the other Homunculi and eventually sides with the good guys.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Was boiled down for his most valuable part, feeding someone else's greed (Father's).]]
* DefectorFromDecadence
* DefiantToTheEnd: [[spoiler:He mocks Father and his siblings and laughs like a madman as Father kills him]].
* TheDogBitesBack: The only Homunculus to openly rebel against Father.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: Of the psychological variety--his vanity keeps him from covering his good-looking face with the Ultimate Shield if he can ''possibly'' avoid it, [[spoiler:even when fighting ''[[OneManArmy Wrath]]'']].
* DyingMomentOfAwesome
* EvenEvilHasStandards
* EvilLaugh
* EvilSoundsDeep: Not in the dub.
* FangsAreEvil: Sort of.
* FanOfTheUnderdog: That is to say, humans and the occasional chimerae.
* TheFightingNarcissist: He prefers not to extend his Ultimate Shield over his head, since it tarnishes his appearance.
* GameFace: He looks ''very'' different when he extends the Ultimate Shield over his head.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Both his first and second incarnations in the manga and ''Brotherhood.'' The second is more a traditional example.]]
* {{Greed}}: Obviously.
* HandsomeLech
* HeelFaceTurn
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: A variant, since the Ultimate Shield is less armor than it is a part of him, but he never extends it to cover his head, and rarely even his neck, unless he absolutely has no other choice. He says it's because it obscures his pretty face ([[GameFace and to be fair, it does]]), so this also makes his vanity a DramaPreservingHandicap.
* {{Immortality}}: His goal in life.
* InSeriesNickname: "Mr. Ultimate Shield", by Lust.
* InsistentTerminology: Those in his gang are his "possessions".
* InstantArmor
* ItsAllAboutMe: While [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation a more positive spin could be placed on his actions]] than the one on that page (see trope below), he is, by the nature of the sin he represents, undeniably a massive egomaniac.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's a selfish greedy (well, it's his NAME) bastard for sure, but he's also shown to genuinely care for his subordinates and he does have a sense of honor.... even if he tries his very hardest to deny it or justify it as his way of keeping his "possessions" in top condition. Also worth noting is that by having the chimeras work for him, he was accepting those who would've very likely otherwise been shunned from society.
** If what Dolcetto and Martel explain to Alphonse in the manga is any indication, it goes deeper than that. They imply that he broke into and facilitated their escape from the lab in to begin with.
* ALadyOnEachArm: How he's introduced.
* MadeOfDiamond: His Ultimate Shield makes him durable even by ''[[NighInvulnerable Homunculi]]'' standards.
* TheMagnificent: Greed the Avaricious.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: When he gets his arm cut off? A mildly interested glance and a small 'oh'.
* MoralityPet: His ''possessions.'' [[spoiler: This later extends to Edward and Ling.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Once mocked Ed for being the type of person who can handle taking a beating himself but goes [[BerserkButton nuts]] when people he cares about get hurt. Yet perhaps the quickest way to piss Greed off, as King Bradley found out through his thinly-veiled rant about avarice and [[InsistentTerminology possessions]] and his eagerness to rejoin the equivalent of a HopelessBossFight, is to kill his henchmen.
* OddlySmallOrganization: Despite his often stated interest in world domination, he's never had more than a handful of followers.
* RegretEatingMe: Has this rant once it becomes apparent what Father is going to do to him.
* SlasherSmile: In his normal form, he has unusually pointy teeth which very much resembles those of a shark, but he arguably has a friendly version of this; his Ultimate Shield form is a more traditional example (it has no lips, so his teeth are always on display).
* TheStarscream: Greed was this to Father.
* StoneWall: The Ultimate Shield easily makes him the most durable character in the series. However, he is nowhere near as fast and as strong as [[spoiler:Wrath/Bradley]].
* TakeOverTheWorld: His ultimate goal in life. [[spoiler: ....Supposedly.]]
* TokenHeroicOrc
** TokenGoodTeammate: For the Homunculi. Greed is the only one among them who is [[AffablyEvil nice]], not a sociopath, and has [[EvenEvilHasStandards standards]]. Also, unlike the other Homunculi who resent humans and [[BadBoss treat them]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness like expendable pawns]], Greed welcomes followers of any kind and [[BenevolentBoss greatly cares for them]] ([[HiddenHeartofGold something he'd not admit]]).
* TrueCompanions: What he, no matter how he denies it, had with his chimeric "possessions" before their deaths.
* UnskilledButStrong: Greed's Ultimate Shield is an incredibly powerful ability. However, while not a poor fighter, Greed's combat skills are very inferior to Wrath's.
* VillainsNeverLie: "It's my policy to always tell the truth".
* WhiteSheep: The only homunculus who isn't either a casual murderer or psychopath, nor does he see particularly see humans as beneath him.
* WildCard: As befits a creature devoted solely to his own desires.
* WillNotTellALie: Part of his personal creed.
* WouldntHitAGirl: Much too classy for that.

[[folder:2nd Greed]]
[floatboxright:
'''Affiliation:''' Homunculi (formerly)/His Own Crew\\
'''Speciality:''' Ultimate Shield/Martial Arts]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2ndgreed001_94.png

A reincarnated Greed inhabiting the body of Ling Yao. He was originally meant to act as Father's bodyguard, but following an incident involving Bido all of the original Greed's memories flooded back into his head. Like the first Greed he too went rogue, and eventually formed his own crew with Darius, Heinkel and Edward.

->Voiced by: YuuichiNakamura (JP), Creator/TroyBaker (EN)
----
* AffablyEvil: At first, until his HeelFaceTurn where he's generally a decent guy.
* AntiHero
** NominalHero: Initially. While he does fight the Homunculi alongside the protagonists, he only does so for his own ulterior motives. In his own words, he plans to steal Father's power for himself and become the [[TakeOverTheWorld king of the world]]. However, he later starts to develop into more of an...
** UnscrupulousHero[=/=]PragmaticHero: As the series progresses, in spite of his own words, he actually starts to perform heroic deeds of his own free will. He rescues his chimera men from Pride and also fights Wrath on behalf of the Briggs soldiers. Later, [[spoiler:he makes the ultimate sacrifice when he [[HeroicSacrifice gives his own life]] to ensure Ling's protection and [[TakingYouWithMe help defeat Father]]]].
* BackFromTheDead: An unusual variant as Father "absorbed" him and then later injected him into Ling. At first you could think of him as a different person from the original, with Greed himself trying to assert that, but he eventually regains the first one's memories.
* BadAss: The only character who can fight toe-to-toe against Wrath. In addition, he still has the balls to defy Father ''again'' and has gained new ones this time [[spoiler:to openly [[TakingYouWithMe attack]]]] him.
** BadassBaritone: He's voiced by YuuichiNakamura and Creator/TroyBaker.
** BadassLongCoat: Starts wearing one after he gets Ling's body.
** BadassNormal: Aside from his iron hard skin, his only real power are Ling's insane fighting skills.
** CulturedBadass: Polite, classy and generally mannered.
* BashBrothers: A most weird variation with Ling, as they share the same body. That said, later on the two "tag switch" to exploit each other's strengths. A more normal version of the trope is him with Edward.
* BenevolentBoss: Though he still calls his friends "possessions".
* BigNO: After killing Bido triggers him to regain the memories of the rest of his fallen comrades, it leads him into an [[HeroicBSOD Anti-Heroic BSOD]].
* BookEnds: [[spoiler: Is both the first and last of the "sin" homunculi to die in the series.]].
* ByronicHero: Charismatic, rebellious, only ever acts on his own whims. To boot, the Second Greed's conversations with Ling also resemble internal conflict.
* CameBackStrong: The original Greed was hopelessly outmatched by Wrath/Bradley. After returning in Ling's body, he's notably stronger. In fact, he even goes as far as to engage Wrath/Bradley extending his Ultimate Shield only over his arms and still gives him the fight of his life.
** FridgeBrilliance: Unlike the original Greed and his men, Ling and Lan Fan were both able to escape Bradley's pursuit at one point. Compared to Greed, and Homunculi in general, they were more on the UnskilledButStrong side; however, skill and ingenuity obviously go further than strength when taking on King Bradley. So really it's more "Came Back Skilled".
* CradlingYourKill: Does this to Bido after killing him.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DefectorFromDecadence
* DefiantToTheEnd: ''Again''. [[spoiler:He just laughs at Father while he transmutes his body's carbon composition into that of charcoal, making him so fragile he is easy to kill]].
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Died performing a selfless act and, in his last words, stated that he had gotten all that he could ever want.]]
* DemonicPossession: Of Ling.
** SharingABody: Greed and Ling's relationship starts out as standard DemonicPossession, but after a lot of FightingFromTheInside, willingly trading the body back and forth, and gaining a healthy respect for each other, it evolves into this.
* TheDogBitesBack: Again. As always.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: Of the psychological variety--his vanity keeps him from covering his good-looking face with the Ultimate Shield if he can ''possibly'' avoid it, [[spoiler:even when fighting ''[[OneManArmy Wrath]]'']].
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Even more so than the original.
* TheFightingNarcissist: He prefers not to extend his Ultimate Shield over his head, since it tarnishes his appearance.
* {{Foil}} / ShadowArchetype: To both Ling and [[spoiler:Wrath]].
** Edward too, they share arrogance and an OedipusComplex.
* GameFace: ''Very'' rarely, because of his vanity.
* GeneticMemory: Recovers the original Greed's memories through [[spoiler:the shock of killing the original Greed's buddy Bido.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Mocks father while also contently realizing that he already had what he always wanted--[[TearJerker friends]].]]
* {{Greed}}: Yah.
* HeelFaceTurn: A ''very'' quick one--he was in Father's employ no more than a month.
* HeroicSacrifice
* HunterOfHisOwnKind
* IJustWantToBeLoved[=/=]IJustWantToHaveFriends: [[spoiler:What turns out to be his truest desire.]]
* InsistentTerminology: Still calls his friends and henchmen "possessions". [[spoiler:Well, until the end, anyway.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Genuinely nice, but a complete ego-maniac.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Much more obvious than the original incarnation, as he was very quick to accept Darius, Heinkel and Edward into his crew and continued to be very protective of them. Still tried to ''act'' like a JerkAss, with mixed results.
* LightningBruiser: His Ultimate Shield already makes him the [[MadeofDiamond toughest character]] in the series. He also destroys a truck with one arm and [[OneManArmy easily defeats a squad of Central's soldiers]]. Oh and this time, he's strong enough to fight on almost equal terms with Wrath. As for speed, he manages to keep up with and dodge most of [[spoiler:Pride's and Wrath's]] incredibly fast attacks, even at one point [[FlashStep showcasing the easy-to-miss speed]] that [[spoiler:Sloth]] possesses.
* MadeOfDiamond
** MadeOfPlasticine: If he were to take his abilities in the opposite direction. [[spoiler:Which he used to weaken [[BigBad Father]], who was in the middle of absorbing him, quite a bit.]]
* MoralityPet: His "possessions", even more so with Ling and Edward.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:When Greed kills Bido whom he is unaware is the last of his former minions, the incident, combined with Ling's reprimanding, affects him so much it triggers his memories to come back.]]
* NobleDemon: Greed is obviously far from a saint (seeing as he's supposed to be the embodiment of a ''SIN''), but he's the only Homunculus willing to work with the good guys as long as it suits his ends. He's so obsessed with his own desires that senseless murder in Father's name doesn't interest him, as anything that he could help Father get Greed would rather obtain for himself.
* NotSoDifferent: Just before their final assault on Central, Greed lectures Ed on their similarities--Ed is motivated by hope and Greed by avarice, and what are hope and greed but different words for desire?
** Now, if we take into account [[spoiler:what Greed truly desires and what Ed is willing to do without alchemy for]], the above actually takes on a new meaning.
** Also interesting is Greed's OedipusComplex toward Father compared to Ed's resentment of Hohenheim for abandoning him as a child, especially since Father and Hohenheim look alike.
** The original Greed once mocked Ed for being the type of person who can handle taking a beating himself but goes [[BerserkButton nuts]] when people he cares about get hurt. Guess what happens when this Greed [[ItsPersonal remembers what happened to his subordinates?]]
** From another angle, in a recent chapter, Father commented on how much Greed reflects his own motivations, indicating ironically that the same qualities that made Greed fight alongside the "good", make Father truly evil.
* OddFriendship: Probably the strongest hint of his true desire. His closest friends are the last people you'd expect to be hanging out with a Homunculus, especially Edward.
* OddlySmallOrganization: The group he and Ed put together is ''even smaller'' than the original's. [[spoiler:A definite, blatant foreshadow of his truest desire.]]
* OneManArmy: Together with Ling, he utterly demolishes Bradley's entire platoon; soldiers, weapons, vehicles and all.
* [[RedemptionEqualsDeath Redemption Equals]] HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:His final death can be seen as this for Ling. When Father absorbs Greed into his arm, Greed has Lan Fan chop it off so a) Father can't possibly absorb Ling as well anymore and b) so he can [[TakingYouWithMe wreak havoc in Father's body]].]]
* RegretEatingMe: [[spoiler:Makes good on his first form's threat after being reabsorbed, when he turns Father into charcoal to allow Ed to deal the finishing blow.]]
* RelationshipUpgrade: Non-romantic variety with Ling. (See VitriolicBestBuds below.) After the timeskip, Greed uses Ling's [[FirstNameBasis first name]] and calls him "partner", or "brat" when in {{Jerkass}} mode. That's a huge change compared to the times when Ling was callously referred as "that guy" or "the owner of this body".
* TheScream: [[spoiler:After killing Bido triggers his old memories to return.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: [[spoiler: While Ling and Lan Fan lay the hurt on Gluttony in the dark, Greed sits back inside Ling and watches, commenting on how Ling's "quite the stud, having a fine woman like her hidden away."]]
** He also compliments Ed on his choice of "possessions" after meeting Winry.
* SixthRangerTraitor: To the Homunculi.
* SlasherSmile
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:To Father, who certainly wasn't expecting the Second Greed to regain his old memories and betray him a second time. Not only does Greed betray Father but he also joins the heroes to fight against him. Greed managed to weaken Wrath (greatly helping Scar) and helped the Briggs soldiers hold the Central fort. He was also crucial in the final battle as he managed to absorb some of Father's souls and distracted him long enough for the heroes to make him use up his Philosopher's Stone shield. Most importantly, after being [[YouWillBeAssimilated absorbed]] by Father (who at this point, still couldn't die due to his regeneration abilities), Greed '''greatly''' [[AssimilationBackfire damages him]] by using his carbonization powers to turn Father's shell into [[MadeOfPlasticine charcoal]], thereby rendering Father unable to regenerate. All that was needed left to destroy Father afterwards was a single punch from Edward]].
* TakeOverTheWorld: His ultimate goal in life. [[spoiler: ....Supposedly.]]
* TokenHeroicOrc
** TokenEvilTeammate: For the protagonists after his HeelFaceTurn. This is played straight before being subverted. Initially, Greed only had [[TakeOverTheWorld ulterior motives]] for joining them. However, in spite of this, he kept doing good and noble deeds like protecting his chimera men and defending the Briggs soldiers from Wrath. In the end, Greed [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices himself to save Ling]] while at the same time [[TakingYouWithMe greatly damaging Father from the inside]].]]
* TrueCompanions: What he, no matter how he denies it, had with his chimeric "possessions" before their deaths. [[spoiler:And ultimately, the one thing he desired the most.]]
* VillainsNeverLie: He never ever lies, and is quite proud of that fact. [[spoiler:Subverts it for the only time to spare Ling from being dragged along in his HeroicSacrifice.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Ling. Their friendship forms off-screen during the timeskip, but we see bits and pieces of it when they argue and banter while working together against Pride and Gluttony. And later [[spoiler: Greed ''lies'' to save Ling's life, and Ling has a heartbroken expression when Greed dies]]. It's an OddFriendship considering their peculiar state of body, but personality wise, they are quite compatible.
* [[WhatTheHellHero What the Hell, Anti-Villain?]]: [[spoiler:Gets this harshly from Ling after killing Bido, which pushes him into his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment.]]
* WildCard: Even more so than the first, as he outright joins the good guys. [[spoiler:Kind of.]]
* WouldntHitAGirl: "I don't fight women, I'm not that kind of guy."
* YouWillBeAssimilated: [[spoiler:Father tries this on Greed after he loses control of God. [[DyingMomentOfAwesome It backfires magnificently.]]]]

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sloth11_8029.png

A hulking brute. Incredibly lazy, he has to be forced to work non-stop or he'll doze off. Not particularly bright. Father's workhorse and, after Greed goes AWOL, bodyguard.

->Voiced by: Creator/FumihikoTachiki (JP), Creator/PatrickSeitz (EN)
-----
* TheBrute: A classic example.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "What a pain." and "Can I rest now?" Sometimes translated as "too much work."
* ChainedByFashion
* DarkIsNotEvil: Not only is he neutral, he's also only a threat if ordered to be.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:He wears out after a long fight, literally working himself to death.]]
* DumbMuscle
* EarlyBirdCameo: Gets a two-panel appearance thirty-four chapters before he's incorporated into the plot.
* EpicFlail: His chains.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:He's happy that he has an excuse to just not work anymore.]]
* HeavySleeper
* HulkSpeak
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice
* TheJuggernaut
* LazyBum: In a physical and moral sense. Not only is Sloth constantly falling asleep, but he lacks the willpower to say "no" to the other Homunculi, and usually goes through objects and people rather than around them. In a weird way, his laziness is what makes him dangerous.
** {{Irony}}: His sin makes him the least difficult for Father to convince to do the arduous and thankless task he does. Lust would much rather witness the bloodshed after manipulating people into madness or spearing them with her fingers. Gluttony just wants to eat people and protect Lust. Pride rivals Father himself in both deviance and arrogance. Wrath was converted to be a war general and Envy created to ruin people's lives, and both would be pissed off at being asked to do something so menial as digging a tunnel the whole time instead. And most strikingly, Greed is too ambitious and has too many scruples deep down to even remain in Father's employ.
* LetsGetDangerous: When he reveals [[spoiler:his SuperSpeed]].
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:When he wants to move, he [[FlashStep can move so fast that he can't be seen]].]]
* MadnessMantra: ''"Too... Much... Work..."''
* TheMagnificent: Sloth the Indolent.
* MonsterSobStory: [[spoiler: Poor Sloth isn't even malevolent unless ordered to be. All he wants to do is sleep, but his physical strength makes Father force him to do all the digging in to make the nationwide transmutation circle.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: One of his attacks pops Major Armstrong's dislocated shoulder back into place, causing the Major to get his second wind and begin beating the crap out of him.
* NighInvulnerability: Probably the toughest and undoubtedly the strongest of the seven Homunculi. Anything less than a tank won't even slow him down.
* NonMaliciousMonster: He doesn't even want to fight anyone. He just wants to sleep. However, he's too lazy to go against orders either.
* PunchClockVillain: Compared to the other Homunculi, all Sloth wants to do is sleep.
* SmashMook
* SuperStrength
* SuperSpeed[=/=]TooFastToStop: [[spoiler:Speed of a cheetah, agility of an 18-wheeler.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Has the least screentime out of any of the Homonculi.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Wrath]]
The first Homunculus to be created from a human and not from scratch. The puppet through whom Father rules Amestris. [[spoiler:For information concerning his Bradley persona, see Characters/FullmetalAlchemistMilitary.]]

->Voiced by: [[spoiler:HidekatsuShibata (JP), Ed Blaylock (EN)]]
* BadAss: One of the biggest in the series, so much that most characters dread even the idea of facing him in combat.
** BadassBoast:
*** "Why must a King enter his castle through the back door?"[[note]]Done while calmly walking to the front gate of Central H.Q, which has taken over by the Briggs army, before slaughtering the Briggs army guards and their tank stationed in the front gate[[/note]]
*** "Now, you all have seen the state I'm in. Who shall win everlasting fame as the one who defeated me? The Chimeras? The foreigner? Mustang's loyal dog? Or perhaps... you all like a shot at immortality?[[note]]Said before the Chimeras, May Chang and, Riza hawkeye. By this point Bradly has lost his Ultimate Eye, has a nasty stab wound in the gut, several gunshot wounds, and suffering from severe blood loss. None of the aforementioned people dared to take up his challenge[[/note]]
** BadassGrandpa: One of the strongest characters in the series. To cite, he destroyed a ''tank'' with a '''sword'''. Seriously, [[spoiler:he takes on Fu, 2nd Greed and Buccaneer at the same time with ''paper-cutters'' and '''wins''' until they must stab through Fu to even land a hit.]]
** BadassNormal: Unlike the other Homunculi, Wrath can't regenerate. The only power that his Philosopher's Stone gives him is his MagicalEye and delayed aging. However, in addition to not being able to heal, Wrath supposedly rarely used his [[CombatClairvoyance Eye]] for most of his fights. One interpretation is that Wrath mostly relied on CharlesAtlasSuperpower.
* TheBerserker: During his fight with Scar. Wrath knows he doesn't have to long to live, so he decides to go out with a bang.
* BigLittleBrother: The youngest of the Homunculi, yet the oldest looking since unlike the others he can age.
* BloodKnight: [[spoiler:After Father summons his five sacrifices, Wrath (by now grievously injured by Ling Yao) is no longer needed, so he throws himself into one final battle against Scar.]]
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Ultra-proficiency at swordsmanship to the point where he can draw and strike in the space of someone blinking. He apparently worked at this for sixty long years, not only [[TheSpartanWay surviving]] the selection process but coming out on top.
* CombatClairvoyance: By way of his [[MagicalEye Ultimate Eye]], [[IAmNotLeftHanded though he only uses it when really challenged]].
* CurbStompBattle: '''ANY''' fight he participates in turns into this, with him doing the curb stomping. [[BadAss There is a reason]] [[TheDreaded why most characters fear him.]] [[spoiler: He easily stomped the first Greed and the chimeras. In fact, for him to be defeated, he had to be half dead.]]
* DeathByIrony: After saying several times that there is no such thing as God, the solar eclipse, the symbol of God in alchemy, plays an instrumental role in his defeat. Who defeats him makes it even better. During the Ishval Genocide, an Ishvalan priest had proclaimed that God's wrath would befall him for what he'd done, but he'd laughed it off. In the end, he was killed by an Ishvalan who'd repeatedly proclaimed to be the messenger of God.
** Additionally, the embodiment of wrath reveals in his last moments that he is content in the way he lived his life, and dies peacefully, without a trace of anger.
* DeepCoverAgent: [[spoiler:Set up and molded by Father's conspiracy into the seeming savior of Amestris.]]
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler: If slashing the man who dealt you a killing blow with a blade held in your mouth even as you're dying doesn't count, nothing will.]]
* DramaPreservingHandicap: Wrath can ''still'' kick serious ass despite being out of his prime by a good degree. None of the other characters could beat him at his best. In order for [[spoiler: Scar]] to even be on equal footing, Wrath had to be ''half dead''.
** If you think disabling his Ultimate Eye will mean he's no longer a threat, think again.
** Not exactly a "handicap", but [[spoiler:unlike the other homunculi, he doesn't have a HealingFactor.]]
* TheDreaded: Probably best shown late in the manga/Brotherhood. The Briggs men have won, while Wrath [[spoiler: had his train blown up in the middle of a bridge several episodes earlier, presumably killing him, and in any case leaving him missing in action. Then his voice, perfectly calm and even pleasant, is heard over the radio, telling them that now he's back, and he's rather displeased with what's been happening in his absence]]. Everybody who hears the broadcast looks to have just [[OhCrap soiled themselves.]]
** [[spoiler:Probably even more than [[EldritchAbomination Pride]] , given Edward still dared and managed to fight off Pride. ''No one'' who faced Bradley in combat goes off unscathed.]]
* DualWielding: He often dual-wields and has been seen carrying up to four spare swords.
** CutlassBetweenTheTeeth: [[spoiler:Does this when both his arms are cut off before being defeated by Scar]].
* EnhancedReflexes: His Ouroboros eye gives him this power, along with limited SpiderSense.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He loves his wife. To what degree is unclear.
* EvilChancellor
* AGoodWayToDie: Ironic isn't it? The embodiment of Wrath is at peace with himself when he dies.
* HappilyMarried: To Mrs. Bradley. [[spoiler: Their marriage was not mandated by Father. It was one of the few choices he was allowed to make on his own.]]
* HeroKiller: He kills Isaac [=McDougal=], Buccaneer, and Fu among others.
* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: [[spoiler: After his death, the heroes can't risk exposing his crimes or true nature, as doing so could cause a war due to Bradley's good reputation. They're forced to do this to him.]]
* HollywoodAtheist: His rants about how the Ishvalan genocide should have shown Scar that "there is no God in this world!"
* HopeBringer: For the villains. The briggs army has successfully taken over Central headquarters and has started celebrating. Then he arrives, eliciting an OhCrap moment from ALL the people in Central and a massive morale boost for the Amestris Military. He then proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle slaughter anybody who dared stand in his way.]]
* IaijutsuPractitioner
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler: The MagicalEye under that EyepatchOfPower gives him CombatClairvoyance. [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower He rarely needs it.]]]]
* ImplacableMan: Trying to stop him is a very good way to get killed. [[spoiler:When Scar blasts his arms off, he attacks him ''[[CutlassBetweenTheTeeth with a sword held in his teeth.]]'']] At one point, he's outnumbered 5 to 1, and the group of five warriors feel they have ''no chance'' to win.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Although it does help [[spoiler:to be a Homunculus with superhuman abilities. He takes out a ''tank'' (!) armed only with his saber and later defuses a grenade.]]
* IronicNickname: For all his talents, Wrath [[PuppetKing is nothing more than a puppet to his Father]] [[GenreSavvy and is fully aware of it]]. That's why his wife means something to him - marrying her was one of the few choices that he got to make on his own. Later, he ''chooses'' to fight the one last battle against Scar after he is no longer needed. This may also explain why he dislikes the notion of God.
* IWasQuiteALooker: Not that he's that bad now...
* KarmicDeath: He is killed by Scar, one of the Ishvalans who survived Wrath's genocide.
* KickTheDog: The Ishval incident. Almost killing Lan Fan. Killing all of Greed's minions and insulting him while slicing his limbs. His overall merciless nature... telling Roy the actual reason he was shaking in Hughes' funeral: not because he was saddened by Maes' death, but because ''he thought Elicia's crying was annoying''. Ouch.
* TheLastDance: Prior to his fight with Scar, he had already been fatally wounded by Buccaneer and Ling Yao. Add to that that he already realized that he had already served his purpose for Father, Wrath knew full and well that his battle with Scar would probably be his last.
* LaserGuidedKarma: One of his victims told him that "God's wrath will fall upon you". Wrath laughed it off. During his final battle with Scar, Scar gets the opening to defeat him when the sun (the symbol of god) blinds Wrath just as he's raising his blades to deliver the coup de grace.
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler: Is VERY powerful and extremely fast, enough to even dodge near-point blank gunfire, and, despite lacking regeneration, is still extremely hard to take down. Case in point: Is the only Homunculus to suffer a REAL RasputinianDeath.]]
** FragileSpeedster: [[spoiler:ONLY in relation to the other Homunculi, as despite being insanely fast and strong, he's the only one without regenerative abilities. He can still take more abuse than any human in the series, it's just that you only need to kill him once. As he himself explains to Mustang, he only has one soul inside of him, unlike the others.]]
** GlassCannon: Comparatively, since [[spoiler:he can't regenerate like his Homunculi brethren - he's a (somewhat) normal human defensively, so he only needs to be killed once. But...''good luck'' even coming close to hitting him, let alone killing him.]]
* LogicalWeakness: As the only Homunculus incapable of regeneration, he only has one life, thus only has to be killed once. He is also subject to age, albeit very slowly. Most importantly, his {{Magical Eye}}s is still hindered by physical obstructions to sight; this plays a very important part in his demise.
-->[[spoiler:'''Buccaneer:''' You may have the eyes of a god, but even you cannot evade attacks you cannot see!]]
* MagicalEye: Under the eyepatch. It shows his Ouroboros tattoo and grants him super reflexes.
* TheMagnificent: Wrath the Furious.
* MasterSwordsman: And how! Compared to him, every other sword-user in the series can only claim to be "good" at it.
* MeaningfulName: More than justified by his BackStory.
* {{Misblamed}}: By Fu, to an extent, as he accuses him of taking his granddaughter's arm. Technically, Lan Fan was the one to sever the arm. [[SubvertedTrope Though Bradley was the cause.]]
* ObviouslyEvil
* OlderThanHeLooks: He's sixty years old, but looks twenty years younger [[spoiler:due to the Philosopher's Stone in his body delaying his physical age rate, which only catches up to him once he dies. Being a Homunculus, however, he is the youngest among his purebred homunculi brethren, who are no younger than one hundred years old]].
* OneManArmy: Takes out a tank and a few soldiers armed with just a saber and a pipe bomb.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: A mix of Action President and [[spoiler:PresidentEvil]], though he at first appears to be President Personable.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: OneManArmy variant. He can't blow you up the way most State Alchemists can, but that won't stop him from slaughtering all of you individually.
* PetTheDog: Often shows up to [[AFatherToHisMen visit his men in the hospital]] and [[spoiler:despite being one of the Homunculi, who generally hate all humans, he loves his wife.]]
* PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes: The most pleasant and friendly of the Homunculi, but still a bad man. Others include: Father, Kimblee, The Gold-Toothed Doctor, Cornello, Raven, Tucker, [=McDougal=] (to an extent), [[AmbiguousInnocence Gluttony]], etc.
* PuttingOnTheReich
* RasputinianDeath: He got stabbed in the gut, lost his eye, shot, and lost a lot of blood while trying to escape, yet he still managed to scare five people, all of whom were competent fighters. Even Scar barely managed to defeat him.
* ShadowArchetype: To no less than three characters: [[spoiler: Ling (authority figures), Greed (humans who were turned into homunculi), and Scar (warriors without names). And to a lesser extent, Roy.]]
* SingleStrokeBattle: He can effortlessly kill people with one swipe of his sword.
* TheStoic
* SuperSoldier: [[spoiler:Essentially what he was raised to become.]]
* SuperSpeed: He can blitz through entire platoons of soldiers and cut through them as if a RazorWind just passed, despite being well past his prime. He can even dodge gunfire from near point blank and [[IaijutsuPractitioner slice opponents in the time it takes for them to blink.]]
* TemptingFate: In the final moments of his battle with Scar, he rants how there is no god. Just as he's about to get the final blow in, the eclipse breaks and a bit of the sun shines into his eyes and provides the distraction needed for Scar to finish him off.
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: The only non-violent way for him to express why he's called "Wrath".
* ThisWasHisTrueForm: A fairly minor version [[spoiler: as while dying, he suddenly ages to the point that he looks like a sixty-year-old would be expected to]].
* TranquilFury: Looks extremely calm when killing. There's a reason he's called ''Wrath'', not ''[[UnstoppableRage Rage]]''.
* TykeBomb: [[spoiler:He was raised from birth as a candidate for the Fuhrership. King Bradley may or may not be the same person as the boy who was raised for that candidacy. He doesn't know whether his soul was the original or if it came from the philosopher's stone.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: A subtle one, but his rant against Scar sounds almost like desperation in that Wrath can't understand why someone won't act out the role he planned for them. In this case, an Ishvalan who's willing to use alchemy just to beat him.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity
* WalkingSpoiler: Well...yes.
* WeakButSkilled: Compared to the other homunculi.
* WeaponOfChoice: A heavy sabre, of which he carries two of them around.

->Voiced by: [[spoiler:YukoSanpei (JP), Creator/BrittneyKarbowski (EN)]]
-----
* {{Badass}}: Let this sink in for a moment: Wrath is afraid of this guy.
* BadPowersBadPeople: [[SarcasmMode Gee, what a surprise.]] The most unrepentantly evil Homunculus is the one who uses living shadows to eat your soul. [[SarcasmMode Who'd've thought it?]]
* BigBrotherMentor: In a weird sort of way he seems to view himself as one to Wrath, who is the youngest of the Homunculi.
* CannibalismSuperpower: Gains the powers of anyone he absorbs, be they Homunculi or human. As if creating tons of razor-sharp shadows wasn't enough.
* CastingAShadow
** LivingShadow
* CompulsorySchoolAge: [[spoiler:He looks like a child and goes to school, but he is actually the oldest of the homunculi at over 300 years old.]]
* CreepyChild: His humanoid form.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:He prefers not to force anyone through the "Gate", since it takes a large toll on him.]]
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler: Ditching his pride out of desperation is what leads to his defeat. His attempt to posses the body of a creature he looks down on (Ed, a human) when his own body start failing disgusts the absorbed Kimblee enough for Kimblee to immobilize him, giving Ed an opening to defeat him.]]
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: His gambit to make sure nobody knows who he is.
* DevourTheDragon: Repeatedly. Pride callously murders [[spoiler:Gluttony, Kimblee (though in this case, he was already dying), and the alchemic doctor]] to gain their abilities and/or knowledge.
* DissonantSerenity
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: His [[spoiler:final]] confrontation with Ed; If [[spoiler:him and Ed having a mutual OutOfClothesExperience and Ed forcibly grabbing him]] wasn't bad enough, we have dialogue like this:
-->'''Pride:''' ...he's forcing himself ''inside me!?''
-->'''Ed:''' I'VE CAUGHT YOU! YOU'RE MINE!
-->'''Pride:''' Stop this...''stop this''...'''PLEASE STOP!!!!!'''
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: Bradley's son was the Homunculus.
* TheDragon: To Father.
* TheDreaded: ''No one'' wants to fight against Pride, considering both his abilities and his cruelty. Even Greed considers him to be a monster.
* EldritchAbomination: A living shadow composed of eyes, teeth, and tentacles which follow you everywhere.
* EnfanteTerrible
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: [[spoiler:Mrs. Bradley is the sole human to whom Pride shows any sympathy.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Considering Pride's loathing of humans and "lower beings", this might be how pre-memory wipe him would regard his fate at the end of the series.]]
* GameFace: [[spoiler:Once his identity is revealed, he's drawn with much sharper, edgier features in contrast to Selim's rounded, almost chibi looks. Especially apparent after he eats Gluttony.]]
** UhOhEyes: His GameFace has PurpleEyes with very small pupils.
* GrandTheftMe: Attempts this on [[spoiler:Edward Elric. Backfires when Ed invades him instead.]]
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: [[spoiler:TaremeEyes as Selim, TsurimeEyes as Pride.]]
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: [[spoiler:Until his reveal.]]
* HeelFaceMindScrew: In the course of destroying Pride, Ed somehow knows to rip out Pride's [[spoiler:true form, a helpless, miniature baby. As a result, Pride has no memories of his past and is purged of his malicious personality, and this, coupled with being raised by Mrs. Bradley, means that he becomes the good little boy [[BecomingTheMask he had previously pretended to be]].]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Turns out [[spoiler:absorbing [[MoralSociopathy Kimblee]]]] wasn't a good idea.
* {{Hypocrite}}: For all his talks about how worthless humans are, he at the end is willing to [[spoiler:steal Edward's body]] just to escape his predicament, to keep himself from dying. [[spoiler:This disgusts [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Kimblee]] into stopping him from within.]]
** "I can't believe you could treat your own brother with such hostility, Greed! Honestly, [[spoiler:I might have to eat you!]]"
* IJustWantToBeLoved
* ImAHumanitarian: [[spoiler:Likes to eat his allies when they are no longer of use ([[{{Irony}} Gluttony]], Kimblee, and the creepy gold-toothed doctor). Disturbingly, after he eats Gluttony, Pride comments on inheriting Gluttony's ravenous hunger for people. However, he doesn't think of it as cannibalism, but rather absorbing them into his collective mind.]]
* InfantImmortality: He [[spoiler:is the only homunculus who looks like a child, and also the only homunculus who survives...sort of.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Personified. Pride ''can't'' give a damn about anyone else, due to the nature of his sin. [[spoiler:Flipped around after his rebirth, when he asks his mother if [[FriendToAllLivingThings an injured bird can be "fixed"]].]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: Many of Pride's cruel acts came back to bite him in the end. [[spoiler:When you think about it, being raised as a human child, with his memories erased? From his original perspective that's a FateWorseThanDeath.]]
* LastOfHisKind[=/=]SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler:Lost memories notwithstanding, he is the only Homunculus to survive the events of the story.]]
* LightIsNotGood[=/=]DarkIsEvil: He can only use his shadow powers in the presence of light, as total darkness isn't exactly conducive to shadows. His shadows can also be destroyed under intense enough light, such as a flash bomb.
* LossOfIdentity: [[spoiler:After his "death", he is reborn with the mind of an innocent child.]]
* LoveRedeems
* TheMagnificent: Pride the Arrogant.
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler:Aside from Father, the only being he really cares about, even a little, is Mrs. Bradley - and that only began after she risked her life to save his and he grew curious about the concept of playing 'family'.]]
* {{Narcissist}}: Unsurprisingly. Pride can care about other people if he really, really tries (see Mrs. Bradley and Father), but he's far more interested in himself, to the point of bordering on out and out psychopathy.
* NoOntologicalInertia: One of his few weaknesses, as when a base of his shadow is blocked off, the rest of the shadow disintegrates.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Or rather, [[spoiler:Obfuscating Childhood.]]
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: Has a major one when Kimblee reappears and screws him over.]]
* ParanoiaFuel: InUniverse example for Riza Hawkeye. He could be literally ''anywhere'' there's shadows to listen in on conversations, even if he's "supposed" to be miles away.
* PowerCopying: The CannibalismSuperpower variant, a decidedly dark one.
* PowersDoTheFighting: Being able to use shadows from anywhere and everywhere allows him to use them to fight by themselves.
* {{Pride}}: Of course.
* PrideBeforeAFall: [[spoiler:Feel free to laugh.]]
* PurpleEyes
* [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really 300 Years Old]]: The oldest Homunculus besides the original.
* SiblingYinYang: Subtly has this with Wrath.
* ShapeshifterBaggage: Seemingly played straight, unlike Envy above. Drawing his shadow back into his "container" doesn't seem to affect his weight or mass at all, despite the fact that the shadow itself is large enough to extend throughout the tunnel of the nationwide transmutation circle.
** Kind of makes sense, since presumably shadows don't weigh anything.
* SlasherSmile: Gains one after [[spoiler:eating Gluttony]].
** His shadows feature numerous large smiles and [[EyesDoNotBelongThere eyes]].
* SmugSnake: Boy is he ever. But what would you expect from someone whose ''name'' is ''Pride''.
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:Part of his Selim Bradley facade.]]
* StrongFamilyResemblance: [[spoiler:To Father back when he was the Dwarf in the Flask. Selim, meanwhile, looks an awful lot like King Bradley when he was a kid]].
* StrongerSibling: Compared to his younger siblings.
* SuperpowerLottery: He's TheDreaded for a reason. Between his homunculi-standard regeneration, his shadow manipulation, and his MegaManning, this guy won. He's miles more powerful than any other character except for Hohenheim and Father, who are basically immortal near-demigods.
* {{Troll}}: Enjoys teasing Ed about his height [[spoiler: while under the disguise as King Bradley's cute, innocent, and of course well-guarded son. He even delights in the fact that it annoys Ed.]]
* TsurimeEyes
* UndyingLoyalty: Nearly every single thing he does, he does to further Father's plan.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Literal and figurative. His body begins to flake apart when he uses it to force Mustang into performing human transmutation. Later on, he finally snaps when Ed calls him out on his blind loyalty to Father, who doesn't give a shit about him, and "dies" screaming hysterically and begging for his life.]]
* VillainOverride: [[spoiler: Forces Roy to perform human transmutation, but it weakened him severely.]]
* VoiceOfTheLegion
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[WeakenedByTheLight Bright flashes of light can hurt him]] and his shadow-based powers are useless in complete darkness and outside of the national transmutation circle and Central Area. More subtly, he can use his shadow tendrils to commit espionage by listening, but he can't use them to ''see'', so Hawkeye exploits this to get a coded message across to Mustang, who pieces it together on paper.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Implied to be one of his motivations when [[spoiler:Ed asks why he obeys Father in the first place, pointing out that Father doesn't really care about him.]]
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:How he "dies".]]

* EvilOldFolks: Older even than Bradley and it shows.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Maintains a cheerful and even somewhat jokey demeanor while throwing his subordinates to die against the heroes and [[spoiler:slitting Riza's throat.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:Implied - he's not present in the usual omakes that show the dead characters, hinting that the he's still alive in that deformed "ball."]]
* FishEyes: Behind his glasses. These ones are ''not'' funny in the slightest however, and only serve to make him look more unbalanced.
* ForScience
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* GoldTooth: Obviously. Somehow the resulting [[TwinkleSmile twinkle]] only makes his constant SlasherSmile more disturbing.
* GoodPowersBadPeople: Knows medical alchemy, but uses those abilities for sick experiments and other evil purposes.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Taken out by six of his own creations, all of whom hated him.]]
* MadDoctor
* MadScientist: The alchemic equivalent.
* ManInWhite: His labcoat and white shirt.
* TheMedic: Villainous example.
* MisanthropeSupreme: Sides with the Homunculi, who seek to eradicate all of Amestris and regard his species as lower than insects.
* NoNameGiven
* ScaryShinyGlasses: That picture up there.
* SlasherSmile: Constantly sports one.
** TwinkleSmile: Courtesy of his gold tooth. The result is creepy as hell.
* SmugSnake: Altogether too pleased with himself about his various bastardly actions.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Dies with very little (but effective) characterization after only appearing in a few random scenes through the entire series.]]
* WeHaveReserves: Discards his EliteMooks like the expendable pawns they are.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness

[[folder:Mannequin Soldiers]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mannequins11_7183.png

Not referred to as homunculi, but are similar in being another group of {{Artificial Human}}s. They are hideous, one-eyed, cannibalistic and hard to kill monsters created by ripping out people's souls and putting them in artificial bodies. The Military Conspiracy planned to use them as an unstoppable army, but when released, things didn't exactly go as planned...
-----
* AndIMustScream: They are trapped in freakish bodies and feel constant pain.
* BigDamnVillains: They eat several participants in the GovernmentConspiracy and prompt the troops loyal to Central to pull a HeelFaceTurn to have help fighting them off.
* {{Expy}}/ShoutOut: A fair few have compared the mannequin soldiers to the mass-produced Eva units. They're both pale white, invoke the UncannyValley, and appear towards the end of the series.
* FromACertainPointOfView: The officer who decides to release them does so informed they will be loyal to their father. This almost certainly means they will only obey orders from Father, and unsurprisingly, the officer is immediately devoured by them.
* FullFrontalAssault[=/=]BarbieDollAnatomy: Both justified because they're not human.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: They were made so that they could be used to help TakeOverTheWorld but once realsed, they turned on any human who was nearby.
* HiveMind: They seem to have one to some degree, as others will react when one of them is injured and they scream in unison.
* ImAHumanitarian: Sickeningly yes.
* MonkeyMoralityPose: Three of them do this in one of the anime's eyecatches.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Also referred to as "the Immortal Legion".
* NightOfTheLivingMooks
* NighInvulnerability: Because these things aren't human, normal attacks have no effect. Scar's usual tactic of YourHeadASplode doesn't work and neither does firearms. Mustang's Flame Alchemy on the other hand though...
* PsychopathicManchild: They creepily evoke children in the way they cry out in pain and to voice their hunger. It's some of them actually do contain children's souls, such as one that was ''calling for its mommy''.
* TorturedMonster
