Fullmetal Alchemist provided fans with much more than they could ask for. Its awesome characters and iron-clad storytelling really make this anime one of the greatest of all time. Fullmetal Alchemist doesn’t overstep its bounds when it comes to its power system. The characters are strong, but not to cataclysmic levels as seen in anime like dragon ball or One Punch Man.
Alchemy was toned down in such a way that they were still impressive to fans who’ve watched anime with excessively overpowered characters. This kind of power scaling provides an ideal world for characters in other anime with overpowered individuals. These characters may not have overly destructive powers, but they would still stand out a lot in Fullmetal Alchemist.
10 Rengoku Will Bring The Heat Into Any Battle (Demon Slayer)
The former Flame Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps will adapt well in Fullmetal Alchemist. Given that there were quite a few swordsmen in this anime, it’s easy seeing Rengoku getting into a fight with a few of these blade-wielding troublemakers.
Since none of them will be capable of putting so much as a scratch of Rengoku, the Flame Hashira is more than capable of winning in a fight against any alchemist. After all, alchemy is no match for Blood Demon Arts and Rengoku has been able to easily beat some of the strongest demons who use it. He’ll also be capable of slaying the homunculi until they run out of regenerative powers.
9 Levi Ackerman Takes Down Titans So Homunculi Should Pose No Problem (Attack On Titan)
Known as humanity’s strongest warrior, Levi’s track record more than speaks for itself. He takes down gigantic humanoid monsters for a living, and he makes it all look so easy. The biggest problems in Fullmetal Alchemist are the homunculi.
These human-looking monsters seem to be immortal for the most part, but receiving sufficient damage and regenerating does in fact drain their powers significantly. Levi will be more than capable of dealing repeated damages to any homunculus until their Philosopher’s Stone runs out of power to revive them.
8 Magna Swing Will Reduce The Homunculi To Ashes (Black Clover)
Magna often chides himself for being weak compared to his other squad mates in Black Clover, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t get his time to shine. While Magna is definitely not one of the strongest mages out there, his flame magic would be a welcome asset in Fullmetal Alchemist.
Magna wields the one power that the homunculi fear. Magna is able to fight with fireballs like a baseball champion, and his long-range attack spells mean less risk for himself and his allies when sending out a barrage of spells. Of course, a homunculus not dying from his first attack will only get Magna more pumped up and ready to destroy it with fire.
7 Ban Is Even More Immortal Than The Homunculi (Seven Deadly Sins)
The homunculi were created and each of them was given names that refer to the seven deadly sins. Likewise, Ban of the Seven Deadly Sins bears the sin of greed. It was his greed that made him immortal in the first place. Even the homunculus named Greed wasn’t content with his own immortality because he knew it wasn’t the real deal.
Unlike the homunculi, no matter how many times Ban is destroyed, he’ll just keep coming back. Also, one of Ban’s specialties is stealing the hearts of his foes, killing them before they know what hit them. He could just as well steal the Philosopher’s Stone that makes a homunculus regenerate, and they’ll die and stay dead.
6 Karma Is Smart Enough To Be An Alchemist (Assassination Classroom)
When it comes to brilliance, it’s very difficult to tell who’s smarter between Edward Elric and Karma Akabane. If a person like Karma were to be an alchemist, he’d easily be one of the best. He could rival Edward and quite possibly surpass him.
In fighting style, Edward only has him beat in martial arts. Karma was smart enough to catch Korosensei off guard on more than one occasion, and he was a man who was known to be the deadliest assassin ever with an unrivaled brilliance. Karma will be an alchemist of the highest order if he’s able to understand the science of alchemy and put it to use.
5 Senku Will Be An Unparalleled Genius (Dr. Stone)
It makes sense that Senku would thrive in a world where brilliance is the order of the day. Fans can only imagine the possibilities if Senku was a character in Fullmetal Alchemist. There’s no doubt that Senku is much smarter than Edward Elric.
Combine Senku’s brilliance with the knowledge of alchemy, and he wouldn’t even need to be a martial artist like the best alchemists are. Senku will most likely come up with even more brilliant ways to use alchemy. Toss a Philosopher’s Stone into the mix, and Senku may well be invincible.
4 Wall Eehto Is An Alchemist With Overwhelming Might (Fairy Tail)
Wall was a member of the Spriggan 12, a group of terrifyingly powerful wizards who served Emperor Spriggan of Alvarez. He was capable of creating robotic soldiers and weapons using alchemy. Even though his brand of alchemy is more sophisticated than what’s seen in Fullmetal Alchemistit’s alchemy all the same.
It’s easy to see Wall destroying the entire country of Amestris with his powers. Wall is also able to do something most alchemists can’t do, though Edward does it to some extent, and that is using alchemy to modify his entire body to cope with any circumstance. Edward is only able to do this with his automail arm and leg.
3 Hibana Is A Brilliant Scientist & A Powerful Pyrokinetic (Fire Force)
Princess Hibana is the Captain of a Fire Force company, so it should come as no surprise that she’s really strong. Besides her impressive powers, she is a really brilliant scientist. As a matter of fact, it was her brilliance that made her a captain in the first place.
Hibana is really skilled at manipulating flames and the most effective weapon for fighting homunculi is Flame Alchemy. This will easily make Hibana one of the deadliest foes the homunculi will ever face. She’s also not afraid to play dirty to get what she wants. With her wiles, she’ll probably wrap the entire Amestrian Military around her finger.
2 Narsus Is A Daunting Strategist (The Heroic Legend Of Arslan)
Narsus is a very popular strategist who comes up with the most bizarre strategies that catch an enemy army completely off guard. Given the right circumstances, he can come up with a plan to topple a thousand-man army with only a handful of soldiers.
Given the power struggle in Amestris’ military, Narsus will be able to wade through dangerous political waters with ease. He would have been a great help in Mustang’s campaign to overthrow the military. Edward may be smart, but he’s still just a naive young boy. Narsus would make a better strategist in any scenario.
1 Endeavor’s Power Will Likely Rival Mustang (My Hero Academia
The current No 1 hero in My Hero Academia will be able to perform even more admirably in Fullmetal Alchemist. Known for his intense firepower, Endeavor will have no problem dominating in a battle with his flame powers.
Powers aside, Endeavor is actually smarter than it looks. He is able to command his hero agency in the field and achieve maximum results with minimum risk. His Quirk, Hellflame, will easily rival Mustang’s Flame Alchemy in terms of intensity and scale of destruction. While Mustang has more finesse, Endeavor will bring real excitement to any battle.
