YMMV: Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos
  • Complete Monster: Security Chief Atlas killed the movie's female protagonist's parents, then stole her brother Ashley's skin and used it as a disguise in order to trick the rebel group, Bats, into making a Transmutation circle for him in order to gain power to rival other nations. He then killed the Bats' leader, Miranda, for her sacrificial blood, murdered his co-conspirator to gain his blood as well, and sacrificed dozens of Amestrian soldiers by "feeding them" to Milos's machinery to create a Philosopher's Stone for himself.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Colonel Herschel stepping in to reveal his true identity-and send Atlas straight to hell.
  • Jerkass Woobie: The real Ashleigh Crichton.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Atlas, he had everyone fooled until the last few minutes of the film.
  • Moral Event Horizon: If Atlas using Julia and lying to her in order to create a Philosophers Stone isn't bad enough, then there's him murdering her parents and stealing her brothers face when they were both still children, when he was supposed to be protecting.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: People from Milos trying to reach Table City are shot down, and the whole issue of deporting illegal immigrants and the fact that most people from Milos (at least the ones whom name we know) are named with Mexican-sounding names, like Carlos, Santos, Julia, Miranda, Raśl, Anita, Pedro and Gonzalez. Not to mention the flashback scenes of the people of Table City being conquered by one people, then another, both times being conscripted into the defender's army to try and stop them.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: The officer in charge of Table City looks remarkably similar to Yoki.
