8 Awesome Facts About Edward Elric You Probably Didn’t Know

Let me tell you one thing before I continue with this post. Edward is one of my favorite characters in anime history and I’m sure he is very likes amongst a lot of people too.

A Little Info About Edward Elric

Edward Elric is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga created by Hironu Arakawa. Edward, titled the Fullmetal Alchemist is the youngest state alchemist in the history of the fictional country of Amestris.


Fact #1

As a state alchemist, Edward technically holds the rank of Major


Fact #2

Edward is left-handed, probably because his right hand is an automail (mechanical arm)


Fact #3

Speaking of height, when asked how tall he is, he states he’s 165cm (about 5’5″) tall. That is true, if we include his elevator shoes and hair antenna. Without those, he’s about 141cm (around 4’8″) short


Fact #4

Ed believes that if he hits his head he will get shorter


Fact #5

As an avid traveler, Edward codes his own alchemy research notes in the guise of a travelogue. They are so well coded that not even his brother, Alphonse can decipher them


Fact #6

In FMAB, the homunculi can be seen as siblings or cousins to the Elric brothers. Father being a “clone” of Hohenheim, could be seen as the same person. Others would say that Father’s relation to Hohenheim is closer to being his twin brother but not actually Hohenheim.


Fact #7

According to FMA (not brotherhood), our worlds are 6 years apart and Amestris is where Germany is in the real world.


Fact #8

In all versions of the storyline (manga, 2003 and 2009). Ed loses his ability to perform alchemy at the end of the series (in different ways in each occasion)
