Ling's female bodyguard.

->Voiced by: Creator/NanaMizuki (JP), Creator/TrinaNishimura (EN)
-----
* ActionGirl: In her introductory scene, she fights Ed to a standstill until he figures out her BerserkButton.
%%* AnimeChineseGirl
* ArtificialLimbs: [[spoiler:She gets an automail arm after she amputates her wounded one.]]
* {{Badass}}: She's supposed to protect Ling from all potential harm, so it's part of the job.
** BadassAdorable: Without her mask, she's rather cute.
** BadassNormal: Apart from her chi sense, she doesn't have any kind of alchemical powers.
* BerserkButton: Ling getting insulted or put in harms way.
* BigDamnHeroes: During [[spoiler:the second fight with Gluttony]].
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: [[spoiler:Has a blade on her automail.]]
* BodyguardCrush: On Ling. [[ShipperOnDeck Ed appears to ship them.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: During the second fight with Gluttony, she subdues him and nearly kills him all by herself, with some assistance from Ling; she would've been able to kill him herself if her automail didn't act up.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Black hair, black eyes.
* DetectEvil: She can sense homunculi and [[spoiler:the Philosopher's Stone under Amestris]].
* {{Determinator}} - PluckyGirl: [[spoiler: She ''cut off her own arm'' just so Wrath would lose track of her and Ling, and then later managed to recover from the painful and grueling automail surgery and rehabilitation that normally takes 2-3 years to recover from [[UpToEleven in 6 months]].]]
** Xing's Alkahestry, being for medicinal purposes likely sped up the recovery.
** Oh it gets even better than that. [[spoiler: She actually ''didn't'' fully recover from it in that time period. Didn't stop her at all from showing up and kicking ass in the end!]]
* DisabledLoveInterest: [[spoiler:For Ling.]]
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Becomes completely depressed and angst-ridden during her healing and treatment with living without an arm, but eventually adjusts to it before her automail is finally installed.]]
* HeroicRROD: Comes dangerously close to this several times since she hasn't properly recuperated from the [[spoiler:installation of her automail arm]].
* ItsAllMyFault: Blames herself after Ling [[spoiler: becomes the second Greed]].
* IWillOnlySlowYouDown: [[spoiler:Tries to pull this when injured and slung over Ling's shoulder while actively being pursued by Bradley. When her attempts to convince Ling that she is not worth saving if it means the loss of his life fail, she cuts her arm off instead to throw Bradley off their trail]].
* KnifeNut: Kunai are her WeaponOfChoice [[spoiler:before getting automail anyway.]]
* LegacyOfService: She comes from a long line of people serving the Royal Family.
* [[spoiler:LifeOrLimbDecision: Cut off her severed left arm in order to distract Wrath, so that she and Ling could escape.]]
* MaskPower: And she actually feels kinda [[{{Moe}} insecure]] when she loses it.
* {{Ninja}}: She comes from Xing, a FantasyCounterpartCulture of Asia, wears all black, and is very stealthy.
* PrimAndProperBun: Sensible hairstyle for a ninja bodyguard.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:Leaves the story to recuperate after her arm amputation and automail surgery]].
** TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:After she and her grandfather Fu set off to find an automail mechanic for her lost arm, they aren't seen again until they both make a grand re-entrance near the end where she [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome goes Cuisinart with her new automail on a surprised Gluttony]], complete with music fanfare.]]
* SamusIsAGirl: Is introduced masked and remains silent throughout her first fight with Ed, until he shatters the mask revealing her face and consequently, gender.
* ShipTease: With Ling.
* ShrinkingViolet: Without her mask, she's rather insecure.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Another rampant case. Ranfan/Ran Fan, Lanfan/Lan Fan, Lang Fan, Lan fun, Ranfun, Ran Fen...
** The official sketch book names her "Ranfun", but shouldn't be considered the definitive spelling, since this same volume lists Al's last name as "Elrick".
** The eyecatches of ''Brotherhood'' say it's Lan Fan.
* TakeMyHand: Refuses to let go of [[spoiler:Greed/]]Ling's hand when he and Wrath were dangling over the side of a bridge, despite his warning that [[spoiler:her automail couldn't take the strain. It actually started to tear away from her shoulder but she still wouldn't let go]].
* TrickBomb: Seems to prefer the regular Xing grenade and the occasional flashbang.
* {{Tsundere}}: [[BodyguardCrush Ling]] is the recipient of her ''dere''; those who dare so much as look at him the wrong way suffer her ''tsun'', thus making her Type A.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Ling.
* UnstoppableRage: Subverted, as getting into a rage over protecting Ling actually makes her weaker and prone to mistakes. [[CombatPragmatist Ed]] takes advantage of this and insults Ling during their first fight to make her easier to fight.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: She would do anything to save Ling. Justified in that protecting him is [[BodyguardCrush her job]].
* WildGooseChase: [[spoiler:Lan Fan cuts off her own injured arm and tying it to a stray dog so that the Fuhrer, who is following the blood trail, is thrown off.]]

A Xingese princess from a very minor clan, her goals are similar to Ling's, who is technically her half-brother. She's always accompanied by her tiny panda, Shao May.

->Voiced by: MaiGoto (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)\\
Shao May is voiced by: Creator/RieKugimiya (JP), Tia Ballard (EN)
----
* ActionGirl: Despite being around twelve years old, she's very competent in a fight.
* AnimeChineseGirl: Xing is a FantasyCounterpartCulture to China, so yeah.
* BadassAdorable: She's quite the martial artist, and she's undoubtedly cute.
* BadassPrincess: Admittedly, she's not a princess in very high standing.
* [[BottomlessMagazines Bottomless Knife Brace]]: You may be wondering where she gets all those throwing knives. This trope is averted by FridgeBrilliance in that she simply transmutes more from available material.
* ChildProdigy: Expert at alkahestry and martial arts, and she is still not a teenager yet.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: [[spoiler:In the end, instead of returning to her country with Envy, she decides to stay in Amestris to help everyone. Ling even says she lost her chance to make her clan win by involving herself in another country's business.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Has quite the overactive imagination.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Like most other people of Xing.
* DetectEvil: She can sense homunculi [[spoiler:and the subterranean Philosopher's Stone]].
* EmpathyPet: One of the more literal examples. Her panda not only shares her feelings, but also mimics most of her movements.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: She's a princess of Xing, although she's rarely called by her title.
* FlechetteStorm: A variant in that she doesn't use it to attack people directly, but she ''does'' tend to throw them very close to people's heads when performing remote transmutations.
* TheGlomp: Her standard greeting towards Alphonse.
* HeadPet: Shao May.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler: Thinks Scar and Yoki are great guys before either has really reformed and distrusts Ed and Al initially.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Once she gets over Ed, she's on Al [[UnusualEuphemism like Elvis on a pound of bacon]].
* IGotBigger: [[spoiler:In the epilogue she appears to have grown at ''least'' two feet taller.]]
* ImmortalitySeeker: She's searching for the secret to raise her clan's standing in court.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: For Alphonse.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: She can effortlessly throw five knives at once to land in a circle.
* TheIngenue: She's very sweet, naive, and well-intentioned.
* KnifeNut: Not as a weapon, but a tool to perform her alkahestry.
* KungFuKid: Enters the story by kicking Al in the head.
* LittleMissBadass: See PluckyGirl below.
* LoveBeforeFirstSight: Develops a crush on Ed after misinterpreting a description of the Fullmetal Alchemist and his legendary exploits, coming to believe he's a KnightInShiningArmor. Then she finds out what Ed's really like, she drops him for Al for similar, but less exaggerated reasons.
* MaybeEverAfter: [[spoiler:It's implied that she got together with Al since she appears in the new Elric Family Photo.]]
* TheMedic: Knows some healing alchemy. Oddly enough, she fills this role for her group more than [[spoiler:her teammate Marcoh, who is ''an actual doctor''.]]
* MoralityPet: For [[spoiler:Scar]].
* MouthyKid: Not quite BrattyHalfPint.
* NaiveEverygirl: She's well-intentioned, but she's a very good judge of character.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Envy tricks her into restoring him/her to his full strength on the Promised Day.]]
* OcularGushers: Enough to put out ''a fire.''
* OdangoHair: With BraidsOfAction to boot.
* OddFriendship: With [[spoiler:Scar]].
* PandaingToTheAudience: Shao May
* PerkyFemaleMinion: She fits this to the extent that while she is rather cheerful, the character she follows [[spoiler:Scar]] is very much TheStoic. [[spoiler:Granted, Scar is well on his way to being an AntiHero by the time she meets him.]]
* PetBabyWildAnimal: She found Shao May after she had been abandoned by the other pandas due to her stunted growth and has taken care of her ever since.
* PluckyGirl: Crosses a Sahara Desert expy and into an unfriendly militaristic nation ALONE, picks a fight while still recovering from a concussion, and [[spoiler:attacks the Big Bad even while knowing that she is totally outclassed by him. Even after being badly wounded, she continues to help out in the final battle.]] [[{{Determinator}} May Chang does not give up]].
* PrincessesPreferPink
* RapunzelHair: It's both braided and wrapped up in buns--it'd probably go to her feet if she let it down.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Shao May.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Not that she really has much of a choice if she wants her clan to survive.
* SettleForSibling: After Ed doesn't turn to be what she expected, she falls for his brother Al.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Where do I begin? May Chan, May Chen, Meichan, May Chang, Mei Chang... it just never ends.
** And Shao May's name can also be spelled Xiao May/Mei...
* SuccessionCrisis: As means to save her [[TheClan lesser clan]].
* TagalongKid: Kind of, she ends up joining [[spoiler:Scar's group]], and while she is the youngest member of the team, she's far from useless or a burden.
* TeacherStudentRomance: She teaches Al about alkahestry.
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: She has indulgent romantic fantasies towards both Elrics.

Ling's other bodyguard and grandfather to Lan Fan.

->Voiced by: Katsunosuke Hori (JP), Kenny Green (EN)
-----
* BadassGrandpa: Literally. Must be a BadassFamily.
* CoolOldGuy: He's a freaking ''ninja''.
* DetectEvil: Sensing homunculi and [[spoiler:the subterranean Philosopher's Stone]].
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:He's satisfied with his death in battle, and that even though he was wounded and failed to detonate, his body still allowed Buccaneer a chance to stab Wrath.]]
* HeroicBSOD: He slaps [[spoiler: Lan Fan]] when [[spoiler: he sees that she has lost her arm]], but it's less about him being angry and more about [[ThisCannotBe in denial and shock]]. [[spoiler: Then he falls to his knees and cries.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Subverted when he tries to [[TakingYouWithMe kill both Wrath and himself with explosives]], but Wrath just destroys the wicks on the thing. Played straight when he lets Buccaneer run his sword through his body to finally injure Bradley.]]
* LegacyOfService: His family's served Ling's for a while.
* MaskPower: Wears one when first introduced, although he eventually stops bothering.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Not played for laughs, but Fu is still only about as tall as Ed.
* {{Ninja}}: Like Lan Fan, he's a master in martial arts and stealth.
* OlderSidekick: To Ling.
* OldRetainer: He's been serving the Young Lord for years.
%%* OnlyOneName
* PapaWolf: [[spoiler:Goes into this mode on King Bradley when he learns what he did to Lan Fan.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Alternately "Fuu", "Huu", [[WhosOnFirst "Who"]]. If ''Brotherhood'''s [[http://deetersthebrotherhoodfangirl.blogspot.com/2010/04/eyecatches-ep-1-10.html eyecatches]] are anything to go by, it's officially "Fu".
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries this against King Bradley. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Ignores Greed's warnings and fails.]] [[DoubleSubversion Though it enables Buccaneer to finally inflict a wound on Bradley. Which in turn allowed Scar to kill him later own.]]]]
* TrickBomb: Prefers tear gas grenades and flashbangs
* WeakButSkilled: Once he intruded on the fight between Wrath and Greed, Bradley started to take the fight much more seriously. Despite Fu being unable to lay a single blow on Bradley, Bradley actually complimented the older warrior for his skills, even expressing disappointment at [[WorthyOpponent having to kill him]]

A state alchemist who served in Ishval, [[spoiler: and creator of some Philosopher's stones.]] Due to his experience in the war he deserts the military, living a quiet life as a country doctor, until trouble comes knocking on his door.

->Voiced by: Masayuki Omoro (JP), Jerry Russell (EN)
-----
* TheAtoner: He's wracked with guilt for [[spoiler:his role in the research and creation of Philosopher's Stones]].
* BackAlleyDoctor: In a small country town, and very competent.
* BadassBookworm: Not actually in the beat-em-up sense, but his grit and determination are pretty badass.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:He basically knew that Envy would track him down, knowing from experience how much the homunculi like to wreck his life]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: A milder example, but by being a BadassBookworm [[spoiler:Envy finds this out the hard way. Turns out Marcoh also knows all the ''weaknesses'' of a Philosopher's Stone too, and is perfectly willing to exploit them]].
%%* CoolOldGuy
* DeathSeeker: On first meeting Scar, he begs the assassin to kill him.
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:He deserted the military after an attack of conscience]].
* TheDogBitesBack: One of the most [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome spectacular examples]] of this trope. See CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: [[spoiler:His horrifically mangled face serves as a symbol of his guilt and attempts to atone for his actions in Ishval.]]
* TheGrotesque: [[spoiler:Instead of killing him as requested, Scar disfigures him horribly, so they can travel without Marcoh being recognized.]]
* LetsGetDangerous: You thought taking out poor helpless old Marcoh would be a piece of cake, didn't you [[spoiler:Envy]]? Maybe you shouldn't have [[spoiler:taught the guy everything you knew about Philosopher's Stones, particularly the bits about homunculi being made out of them, and how to destroy them]].
* LikeAGodToMe: Tim Marcoh, being largely responsible for the near extermination of the Ishvalan race, ends up saying this to Scar, one of the surviving Ishvalans, as a sign of his own humility, but it only serves to piss Scar off.
* StartingANewLife: He has begun a new life as a small-town doctor.
* [[SuicideByCop Suicide By]] SerialKiller: He wants to die without his beloved village being destroyed by the Homunculi. So when Scar shows up in their compound, he tries to punch Scar's BerserkButton and make his death look like an accident. [[spoiler: Scar doesn't kill him, instead he kidnaps him and uses him to get information. Sorry, Marcoh. You were a few days worth of CharacterDevelopment too late for that.]]

Once an insufferable and deeply corrupt bureaucrat that ran the mines in the town of Youswell, Yoki was discharged from the military when the Fullmetal Alchemist showed up for an inspection and lost all his money thanks to his own carelessness. In time, he was found by Scar, who not-entirely-willingly took Yoki on as his sidekick.

->Voiced by: Creator/KazukiYao (JP), Barry Yandell (EN)
-----
* BelatedBackstory: In the anime, the story of how he got kicked out of the military and his history with the Brothers Elric isn't fully related until episode 38, twenty-five episodes after his first appearance.
* BreakTheHaughty: In his first chapter, he goes from a petty despot looking to climb the ranks to a bum.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Ed and Al don't even remember their first meeting with him.
* ButtMonkey: He gets absolutely zero respect from anyone around him. Ed and Al don't even remember causing his downfall. [[spoiler: And ends up becoming a professional butt monkey in the end -- a circus clown.]]
* CarFu: Ramming a car against [[spoiler:Pride]].
* ChekhovsGunman: Even more in ''Brotherhood'', where he's reduced to a brief mention in episode 4 before showing up again in episode 13.
* ChekhovsSkill: Say what you want about him being a crappy mine proprietor, but the man knows his stuff about coal mines.
* CowardlySidekick: To Scar.
* DirtyCoward: Before his CharacterDevelopment he was this. He has no combat skills, unlike Scar and Mai, so in dangerous situations, he just panicked.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Very hidden, [[ActuallyPrettyFunny in fact more a heart of fool's gold]].
* HostageSituation: Happens, but everyone convinces the hostage-taker [[YouCanKeepHer they don't care]] (at least some of them actually did).
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: [[spoiler:Does this to Envy after its defeat to Marcoh, verbally at least]]. Not to mention running [[spoiler:Pride]] [[CarFu down with a car]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and gloating about it]].
** In [[spoiler:Pride]]'s case, it's more like "I can't believe I'm doing this shit!" than "[[WhosLaughingNow Look who's laughing now, sucker!]]".
* LovableCoward: Becomes one thanks to character development.
* NonActionGuy: In a WorldOfBadass, he has no combat skills. Though running Pride down with a car was pretty badass.
* ServileSnarker: But never to Scar's face.
* SmallNameBigEgo: In his first appearance.
* StartingANewLife: From corrupt government official to Scar's sidekick, and eventually becomes, of all things, a circus clown.

Izumi's husband. A meat butcher who is very protective of his wife, often accompanying her on her travels around Amestris.

->Voiced by: Seiji Sasaki (JP), Bob Carter (EN)
-----
* BadassBeard
* BadassNormal: Alchemy? No. ''Really big muscles?'' '''Yes.'''
* BattleCouple: With Izumi.
* BerserkButton: Other men hitting on his wife is just about the only thing that can drive him to violence.
* BigBeautifulMan: Some female fans think his size and chub make him utterly ''huggable''.
* TheBigGuy: In every sense of the term. [[spoiler:During the battle with Sloth, Izumi tosses Sloth in the air, Sig punches him. Rinse, repeat.]]
* FaceOfAThug: Ironic, given his wife's violent tendencies. He even looked like a crime boss [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100502071320/fma/images/7/7f/YoungSig.jpg when he was younger]].
* GeniusBruiser: The man runs a butcher shop; his knowledge of an animal's biology is probably better than some alchemists. And he can carry the entire corpse on his shoulders.
* GentleGiant: Despite his formidable looks, he's really a nice guy, if somewhat cold at times.
* HamToHamCombat: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Engages in an epic muscle-flexing pose-off duel with fellow manly-man Alex Louis Armstrong.]]
** In ''Brotherhood'', they become [[BashBrothers Ham-to-Ham Bash Brothers.]] [[spoiler: And they kill Sloth immediately afterwards.]]
* HappilyMarried: To Izumi.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: It's not that Izumi's particuarly small, but almost any woman (and man) is tiny next to him.
* SatelliteCharacter: Basically, he's just in the story to watch Izumi's back.
* SickeninglySweethearts: Flowers and butterflies literally pelt anyone nearby whenever he and Izumi have a moment. Which is [[RunningGag every time they're on screen together.]]
* StoutStrength: Sig is noticeably portly, but still freakishly strong. He's kind of got that "retired football player" look going for him.

* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: She ridicules Ed's lack of height with impunity (though only when he has it coming).
* SecretKeeper: Having known Hohenheim for decades, she realizes that he must age slowly, if at all, yet she does not tell Ed and Al (or Winry) of this fact, instead leaving that up to their father.

She was a sweet, gentle woman who was loved dearly by her entire family, even by Hohenheim, who despite having left them, was reluctant to do so. Trisha tries to last until his return, though she ultimately dies of an illness. Ed and Al's attempt to revive her with human transmutation set the events of the series in motion.

-----
* DeathByOriginStory: Died of an illness about five years ago.
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest
* GoodParents: She encouraged her sons' alchemy talent, did her best to let them know their father did care, and generally made it obvious why Ed and Al wanted her back so badly.
* HappilyMarried: She and Hohenheim weren't officially married, but they lived happily together for several years.
* {{Housewife}}: She stayed home and raised the kids while their father was out.
* IWillWaitForYou: Only death put an end to this.

A serial killer that guards the hidden laboratory used to create the red stones. After being used as a subject in transmutation experiments, his soul was placed into a suit of armor not unlike Al's. While he works for both Roy and the Homunculi over the course of the story, he doesn't really care as long as he gets to chop stuff up.

->Voiced by: Hideyuki Umezu (JP), Creator/JerryJewell (EN), Jason Grundy (EN - Human body)
-----
* AbhorrentAdmirer: For Riza.
* AmazonChaser: The women he wants most to chop up are Lust and Riza.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:After being destroyed by Lust, he is stuck in a tiny piece of armor, alone in a secret room and unable to move. [[DeathByIrony It gets fixed quickly though.]]]]
* AnimatedArmor: His soul is sealed into an otherwise empty suit of armor, which serves as his new body.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Gives one to another suit of armor.
* AxCrazy: This is why he was executed in the first place.
* BreakThemByTalking: Gives one mighty lecture to Al, leaving the poor boy questioning his own existence. Note that he was just making crap up to stall and not basing it on any flaws he saw in Al.
* TheButcher: One of his nicknames, and he actually worked as a butcher in the past.
* [[spoiler: DeathByIrony: Killed by his own body.]]
* DualWielding: With meat cleavers.
* DyingAlone: [[spoiler:Essentially what happens to him in the end]].
* ForgottenFallenFriend: Well, "friend" may be a bit of a stretch, but nobody seems to give a damn about what happened to him after [[spoiler:Lust destroyed his armor.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[TokenEvilTeammate Though not much of one]]. Even when working for Roy, he's still a psychotic killer. Probably the only reason he doesn't cut up his allies is because Riza tells him not to.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: At his most heroic he is still a sociopath but his love of cutting things up is played for laughs.
* IgnoredEnemy: He constantly threatens the heroes, but they have more dangerous enemies to deal with.
* IHaveManyNames: Not that anyone cares.
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: He measures the attractiveness of women on how much he wants to "chop" them -- voluptuous characters like Lust and Riza are to his taste, but [[AmbiguousGender Envy]] was far too stringy.
* LaughablyEvil: Let's face it, he has barely any redeeming qualities, but ''damned'' if he isn't funny. He becomes more AffablyEvil later on.
* [[LoveAtFirstPunch Love At First Gunshot]]: He falls for Riza after she [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps him.]]
* LoveRedeems: His HeelFaceTurn was prompted by him falling for Riza.
* [[HonorBeforeReason Murder Before Reason]]: His original body, now a mindless zombie, constantly chases him on orders from the Homunculi. Being close to him affects his blood seal and threatens to destroy both of them. But rather then stay the heck away from it, Barry gleefully chases it because he finds to the idea of murdering his own flesh to be [[NightmareFetishist really cool]] or can't stand his body being vacant...[[InsaneTrollLogic or something]]. [[spoiler: Too bad he got killed in the process.]] This is later made extra-ironic in that [[spoiler:given the eventual [[{{Synchronization}} relationship]] Al is shown to have with his body (which is in the gate), killing his own body would have likely caused his soul to be destroyed anyway]]!
* PetTheDog: Doesn't want to stand by and let Maria Ross get convicted of a crime she didn't commit.
* PsychoForHire: He really doesn't care who he's working for as long as they let him chop.
* ReminiscingAboutYourVictims: Does a fair bit of this in the manga.
* SerialKiller: Started after he decided there wasn't much difference between cutting up beef and cutting up humans.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Roy keeps him on a proverbial leash and points him at his own enemies. Since all Barry cares about is chopping things up he charges in that direction.
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: His main reason for leaving the Homunculi is because they regarded him as such.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The Homunculi tried to do this to him. [[spoiler: It took a while, and he definitely played a small thorn in their sides, but they ultimately succeeded.]]

Mysterious guardian of the Gates, claims to be "Reality", "the World", and "{{God}}". Not having a form of his own, he takes on the outline of whoever approaches him. Whenever someone attempts human transmutation, (except those who have the Philosopher's Stone) he forces them to pay a toll for trepassing in God's domain. However, he always gives them alchemical skill and knowledge proportional to their sacrifice. Despite his apparent neutrality, he seems to take sadistic pleasure in his tolls, often giving out ironic punishments.

* [[spoiler: GoodIsNotNice: A stretch, but despite the heavy prices it collects from those, who perform Human Transmutations, he seems to be more of CruelToBeKind as his main goal is to teach alchemists that alchemy isn't everything. When the Edward gets it, Truth is overjoyed and lets the deal to be made and Al to be saved.]]
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler: When Ed finally learns his lesson, The Truth is overjoyed and is happy to let Al return to the real world.]]
* HumanoidAbomination: The form he takes is humanoid, but featureless--barring whatever toll he just exacted from you.
* IronicHell: Ironic punishment anyway, inflicted on those who attempt to raise the dead.
--> (To [[spoiler: Homunculus]]) "Despair to the conceited."
* KarmaHoudini: He stole Izumi's organs, Al's body, two of Ed's limbs, [[spoiler:and Roy's eyesight]]. His punishment? [[spoiler:Nothing!]] Then again, [[FridgeBrilliance being the God equivalent, he essentially]] ''[[FridgeBrilliance is]]'' [[FridgeBrilliance karma.]]
* KickTheDog and PetTheDog: [[spoiler: Taking Roy's sight. On one hand, Roy did not perform human transmutation by his own will; he was forced bodily into it. On the other hand, compared to people who lost limbs or organs, blindness is an extremely light toll and he still gave Roy the ability to transmute without a circle. Furthermore, it was only a temporary handicap because Dr. Marcoh's PhilosophersStone was used to cure him. [[FridgeBrilliance Something that a keeper of a gate with all knowledge inside referring to itself as things like "reality", "the world", "all", "one", "you", and "God", would know.]]]]

* PetTheDog:
** May genuinely respect Al, after [[spoiler:Al gives up getting back his body to help save Amestris.]]
** Gets an even bigger one with Ed, after he [[spoiler:surrenders his alchemy:]]
-->'''Truth''': [[spoiler: [[TricksterMentor That was the correct answer, Alchemist.]] [[GracefulLoser You have defeated Truth.]] Take your prize. All of it.]]
** [[spoiler:In the English ''Brotherhood'' dub, his line calls back to the Japanese version's "VoiceOfTheLegion of the subject" thing which the English dub only does with this one line in episode 63.]]
-->[[spoiler:"YOU'VE DONE IT! THAT'S THE RIGHT ANSWER! GOOD JOB! YOU BEAT ME! GO AHEAD! TAKE HIM HOME! THE BACK DOOR IS RIGHT OVER THERE! GOODBYE, EDWARD ELRIC!"]]
* PhraseCatcher: When an unfortunate alchemist asks who/what he is, Truth always gives the same answer.
-->'''Truth''': I am "the world". Or perhaps "the universe". I am "God". I am "Truth". I am "all". I am "one". And... I am ''you.''
* ShadowArchetype: Though in an odd way. It is the approximate size [[spoiler:and shape]] of anyone attempting to converse with it. [[spoiler: In chapter 108 when Homunculus talks to it, Truth takes the shape of a small sphere, just like Homunculus.]]
** WordOfGod is that [[spoiler: every alchemist has their own Truth-kun - (s)he is the part of the One that connects to the All that is the world.]] The last chapter confirms this. It probably also reflects their personalities. [[spoiler:It is JerkAss to Edward, nice to Al, and unrelentingly cruel to Father]].
* SlasherSmile: Its only genuine facial feature.
** [[spoiler: It gives a genuine, non-slasher one as part of his hearty congratulation when Ed achieves the "truth behind the truth" and gives his own gate as toll for his Al]].
** [[spoiler: It also drops the smile for a disappointed frown when it banishes Father[=/=]Homunculus.]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: [[spoiler: Gives one to Father[=/=]Homunculus right before having its own gate swallow it]].
* TricksterMentor: It was this to Ed all along.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: This even takes on the quality of being a legion variant of the voice of whoever he's talking to.
** [[spoiler:When congratulating Ed for the "truth behind the truth", his voice changes into a legion crossover between Ed and Al's.]]

* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Ends up forming one with the Elric brothers. She may not feel like they're enemies for very long, but technically they are Amestrian soldiers, and Ed in particular hates the Black Bats' plan to acquire the Sanguine Star because it sounds exactly like the Philosopher's Stone. Ed turns out to be right, and still doesn't approve of her taking the Star by the end of the movie, but otherwise he does respect her.]]

This not only applies to what Atlas had done, but to the Milosians' initial rejection of his family because of their alchemy.
