* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6OIn9lH-iw Beyond the Gate]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVghAQk7wJE Requiem]] from [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemistTheConquerorOfShamballa the movie]]. The first is an epic piece that plays [[spoiler:as the gate between the worlds is opened]]. The second is an upbeat, and at the same time, tragic piece for [[spoiler:Heiderich's funeral]].


** The first opening theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uq34TeWEdQ "again"]], which, like "Brothers", is both heart-wrenching and beautiful.

** The fifth Opening [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRA5gsdCf4c "Rain"]] by SID is too beautiful for words. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8GIo_YDHkU MIDI version]] is also incredibly awesome, with the MIDI doubling as Heartwarming Music, especially if you consider the meaning behind the lyrics. Special mention should probably go to the use of it in Episode 61 of ''Brotherhood''. The episode begins with it conspicuously absent; fitting, since this is the equivalent of [[DarkestHour Chapter 104]]. [[spoiler:Everyone is "dead" and Father appears to have won]]. It doesn't play until [[spoiler:Hohenheim's circle activates that reverses the whole thing, returning everyone to life]], and that song playing over the scene just about doubles the already-high levels of [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]] and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]]. The use of the 5th Opening at the end of Episode 63 is incredibly satisfying as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} AND one of the biggest {{Tear Jerker}}s of all time...
