30 Day FMA Challenge: Day 22

It is day twenty-two of the 30 Day FMA Challenge.

22. Best Revenge

I would also be totally fine with calling this category “most satisfying moment,” because that is also a lot of what makes this scene great. In the moments before this scene, Mustang confronts Lust, who uses her immortality to survive his attacks, despite being burned to crisp, with him being mortally wounded, and presumed dead. Lust then leaves, meeting with Hawkeye and Al further down in the underground tunnels.

Lust attempts to kill the two, but Al protects Hawkeye using his armored body. However, in an unexpected moment, Mustang shows up, looking like he is about to pass out, having used his alchemy to sear his wounds closed. Mustang then uses his alchemy continuously to burn Lust as she regenerates, eventually using up her philosophy stone and killing her for good.

The scene feels satisfying because of the the way in which Mustang is able to come back from his earlier to defeat and just utterly obliterate Lust. Not only is it, in that moment, a relief to see him alive, but the act of taking out taking out his rage on Lust in that is, in a way, cathartic.


What do you all think is the best revenge moment in FMA? Let me know in the comments.
