The Top Ten

1
Edward Elric
Ed is always the best! Roy, dude- ya can't beat a long-haired blonde shrimp. Just- nothing else to say. LONG LIVE KING (or not king) ED!
I'm not even being biased her, Edward Elric is my favorite anime character of all time! I love how he is always there for Alphonse and uses his alchemy in a way that makes him not seem like 'a dog of the military. '

NerdyPweeps

Ed is the best + Automail is cool. And Ed has awesome hair and eyes. He's so hot.
[Newest]Laugh out loud because Ed.


2Roy Mustang
Well I LOVE ROY MUSTSNG because he's so HOTT and really awesome he's the best character ever and I love it when he says I love dogs and also the mini skirt thing to so thats y I LOVE ROY MUSTANG SO MUCH
Who else can kill you by snapping
Roy Mustang is a sexy little fire alchemist who will burn crap up just by snapping his fingers. Does it get better than that? I mean, his looks are definitely not to be disregarded, but over all he is sexy as hell and I would take him captive in my basement any day of the week. Jkjk, but who hasn't had fantasies about the FMA boys here and there?
[newest]
I thought that Roy Mustang was going to be first.

3Alphonse Elric
An incredibly strong character, to remain so kind and calm even after all he has gone through. A true prince. And he can also be pretty badass when he needs to.
A really sweet guy with a big heart reserved for his brother. He's had it hardest but always seems to be able to keep pushing though it. He is Ed's balance and if Ed didn't have Al by his side, then Ed would be well and truly dead by now and we wouldn't have this awesome series!
Sorry but got some negatives: I was shocked to find that in the 2003 version (pretty sure it's 2003, and maybe brotherhood as well), in Japenese, Al is voiced by a girl!?
Negatives aside, Al is the crazy cat guy that may only be in this world as a soul, but his armour is strong and his calm and collected manner is what makes him loved by so many. A tribute to Alphonse Elric!
Not my favourite, that place goes to Ed. But, seriously, this kid deserves top place on this list.
[Newest]He is just so sweet! He has been through so much at a young age, but still keeps going and is strong. He and Ed are tied for first on my list, but he deserves to get more votes.

4Maes Hughes
Even though his character was short-lived, he was one of the best established character in the series.
I was pretty sad when he died, he's an amazing character with limitless potential

5Riza Hawkeye
Riza is an amazing, strong woman! She has a talent with guns: she keeps them on her all the time and never misses her target, which makes her quite a feared person in her universe haha. She is loyal, admirable, and beautiful!
Best female anime character ever. Enough said.
She looks so hot...
[Newest]Black Hayate should be on this list!

6Greed
Dude, who can go wrong with Greed? I mean, he's AWESOME and COOL and so BADASS! I love everything about him! Especially his arrogant attitude and his GRIN! Oh, his grin! He can make you feel unsettled and in love just by smirking at you! And the fact that he joined bodies with Ling (who ties with Greed as my most favorite character) just made this duo the best there is! I thought for sure Greed would've at least ended up in the top 3 or 4 or something... And where's LING?!?! Why isn't he in this list? Guys, he deserves it!
Greed is an entertaining antihero, and he is twice the awesome when he shares bodies with ling for a fun ying-yang dynamic.
Greed is an AWESOME character, especially in brotherhood. He deserves more than 2 percent of the votes! Out of all the characters, I felt that he was the best and the one who changed the most.

7Envy
He's just so hot! I love his voice in English, Japanese, French, and German! (The German voice fits him so well! But the Spanish one is such a disappointment. No offense. ) His violet snake-like eyes are so entrancing. I totally fell in love with his androgynous style and personality. I also just have to admit that he's so darn adorable in his mini form!
Envy is a likeable character in both the anime and the manga, despite not really having any positive traits. It's easy to sympathize with what he/it has been through, and it's easy to relate to how Envy went completely nuts. I also like how manga Envy looks more like a guy but is actually genderless, and how anime Envy looks more like a woman but is actually a guy. Plus, he/it is funny.
Am I the only one who considers envy a woman?

8Winry Rockbell
She's a cool shonen heroine. I mean, she doesn't fight, but she doesn't come out as useless and weak.
She's the most important character to the show she's always there to provide moral support or to fix Ed's Auto-mail deep down she really loves him.

9Izumi Curtis
She's incredibly funny and scary. Best character because she's powerful but does have a clear weakness. She's a tough but very loving and protective teacher who sees the elric brothers more as her sons then just students. Plus she throw sloth like he was a paper ball which neither of the armstrongs could do and 8 soilder tried to hold him back a they all failed. Plus she took on fort briggs soilders and won. The look on the armstrongs face when izumi tossed sloth was priceless

10Alex Louis Armstrong
Let me show you the popularity that has been passed down the Armstrong line for generations.
Is he the only guy in anime with a middle name?
I don't care what anybody says her personality is sexy

The Contenders

11Pride/Wrath (Brotherhood)
Pride controls everyone from the shadows and is ruthless, cold-blooded and an absolutely remorseless killer. He's only a little boy which creeps me out. Father is the main villain but he's so emotionless. Should've made Selim Bradley the big bad guy.

bishop.moore07

WHAT the HELL!? HE DESERVES TO BE #1 OR at least #2. HE IS THE MOST COOLEST, MOST AMAZING CHARACTER OF THE WHOLE SERIES. HE'S SO STRONG, DETERMINED, QUICK AND HE'S ALMOST UNBEATABLE.

HE THE MOST AMAZING CHARACTER OF ALL.
This demon boy freak is just so adorable. I love his powers too! He's really cool and I love the way he likes playing house with wrath and mrs bradly
[Newest]Best villain in the show, should be in the top five.

12Father

13Scar
All of the other characters have overpowered alchemy (Not that it's a bad thing). He relied solely on skill and manuverability to defeat defeat his enemies. + he has good motivation fight against his oponents

14Solf J. Kimblee
Sociopaths are way cool, bro. At least, if all sociopaths are like Kimblee. Which they totally should be. Stole the show every time he showed up.

15Ling Yao
Dudes, Ling Yao is the funniest and most badass guy on the planet (tying with Greed for me). And he can certainly rival Gluttony if Gluttony sticks to food alone. (that means no bark from trees, or whole houses and cars) He is so hilarious to watch and I'm hungry when he's hungry (don't worry Ling, I also eat everything off the room service menu) But when he's serious, he totally changes into a badass, don't--mess-with-me-or-I'll-kick-your-ass-all-the-way-across-Amestris kind of guy. He's also the best in sword dueling and is actually very smart but likes to hide it in his goofy and idiot facade. In other words, PERFECT. I'm so sad when he didn't make it to the top ten. I mean, come on people!
He acts like a doof but boy when he wants to he can be a total badass. Not bad looking either hehe
Why is he below Father... This doesn't make any sense, Ling is so funny
[Newest]To put it simply he is the best, no words can describe how incredibly fantastic he is... He should be at least 4th

16Van Hohenmeim

17Olivier Mira Armstrong

18Lust
Lust should be WAY higher! She was so awesome!

PlatinumTheHitgirl

Miss Wolverine with an attitude!

19Jean Havoc
The 2nd Lieutenant should be up this list! He is the big breasts loving and always heart broken person. Don't you agree, Jacqueline?

20May Chang
Expected her to be higher up wow. she's adorable and badass which makes for an ace character in my opinion
It's not a cat! It's a panda!

21Nina Tucker
Nina and Alexander's (don't forget the cute puppy) death was so sad I nearly cried. RIP Nina and Alexander!
Even though she makes a short appearance it was sad how she dies she deserved better.

22Grumman

23Lan Fan
One of the strongest girls out there. A total badass superninja, not to mention very cute!

24Gluttony

25Barry the Chopper
In the manga/2009 series - When he was first introduced, I hated his guts (not that he had any... Haha) for what he did to Al. But somehow, this ax-crazy serial killer eventually became really funny and actually endearing, almost, when he wasn't out killing people. I was actually really sad when he died...
A butcher with killing instict!

26Captain Buccaneer

27Paninya
She really deserved a lot more screen time, she only stole in order to pay back Mr. Dominic who helped her get auto mail for her legs but thanks to Winry she's managed to turn her life around.

28Tim Marcoh

29General Raven
This man died doing what he loved. Serving as a brave general for the people. Olivier Armstrong killed him in cold blood! :'( It brings sorrow to my heart. All he wanted was a wife, someone to love him, and she stabbed him in the back. He was lonely, and his only lover betrayed him.

30Greed/Ling (Brotherhood)
This duo is the best of all partners in the anime world. I love how they couldn't get along, but they secretly cared for one another. Especially when it came to THAT superbly awesome scene in the last episode, (not gonna spoil it for you people). They are AMAZING!
Very interesting combination.
They kick ass and I love how Greed becomes good and how Ling starts to care about Greed.
These 2 combined made an epic amazing team!

31Yoki
Yoki should be at the bottom, in fact, he shouldn't be on this list. Black Hayate needs to replace this guy on the list.

32Martel
Badass snake girl that was actually a good person. So sad that she died whilst inside Alphonse. That must've been real awkward and tough on him.

33Pinako

34Miles

35Sloth (Brotherhood)

36Shou Tucker
I don't care what anybody thinks. This guy is my favorite, because he's just so insane and its kinda sad what happened to him. Nina understood why Tucker did the things he did, he was misguided!
Tucker turned Nina into a chimera! Why is he not in the very back?
ALL YOU PEOPLE NEED TO STOP HATING! HE MADE TWO MISTAKES IN HIS LIFE! HAVEN'T YOU EVER MADE MISTAKES! HE OBVIOUSLY REGRETTED HIS ACTIONS WHEN HE TRIED TO BRING HER BACK! HE WAS A LOVING FATHER MORE DESERVING OF LOVE THAN ANY OF YOU HATERS! Justin Bieber MADE MISTAKES BUT HE STILL HAS FANS! WHY NOT STILL LOVE MR. TUCKER! I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO MEET A MAN OF HIS Genius AND EXPERTISE IN REAL LIFE! P.S. ENVY AND WINRY SHOULD HAVE MARRIED

37Dante

38Sloth
Ew why is this here... ?

39Rose
? Rose? Really? Who likes Rose? I admit, she isn't BAD, but really. She doesn't deserve to be above anyone on this list.
Dude, I totally agree with U. Someone else deserves this place more than her. Someone who did something awesome and incredible to ACTUALLY deserve the spot. I'm not a hater of Rose. Not at all. This is just my opinion on things.
