Second, it's a
show, not real life. Third, as Hughes puts it, if he didn't want
to kill people, he should have got a desk job.
Just because it's a show doesn't mean reality can't apply to it. Most of the cast are very human and true to life with their emotions. The Amestrian military is also based off many real life militaries, specifically the German military during the Nazi regime.
And what? Youth aren't allowed to be naive? Because that's exactly what he was. And he got one huge as hell reality check.

And if my memory serve, Hughes got promoted to a higher rank
then mustang, and like I said he had a desk job. By the way, I've
seen the whole series more then three times.
Actually, Hughes always stayed one rank below Roy. He intentionally did so so he could help push Roy to the top. He only got promoted later for dying in the line of duty, not for anything he did while alive.
So this point is null and void. :/
And you're bringing up how many times you've seen the series because...?

Will you stop with "he'd get fired"! Say, just say he did get fired,
he'd still be the flame alchemist, just like ed will always be the
FullMetal Alchemist. Then he could start his on army and be the
This is a joke right? Right, because starting your own army is sooooooooo easy.
And you really missed something here with the story of FMA. :/ You only have those titles because you're a alchemist of the state. If Roy got discharged he would still use Flame Alchemy but he would not be the "Flame Alchemist" for that is a title granted to him by the Fuhrer. The same goes for Ed.
And Grand (the Iron Blood Alchemist) could have been the one
to do mustang's job. By the way, I do hate Grand.
Bigwigs never do their own dirty work. Ever. :/
And can we stoped with the "getting fired"? For starters the correct term is discharged and second of all THIS IS GRAND GIVING THE ORDERS HERE. He wouldn't have sent him home he would've KILLED HIM.Crystal Hughes
you couldn't have honestly expected to come in here and say you don't like Mustang without Mustang fans arguing with you. This is a thread of people who LIKE Mustang. Coming in here and continuing this is just asking for trouble. It's best you just leave this thread and stop this.
Btw for the record, in the manga Roy isn't the one who killed Winry's parents. In the manga it's Scar. So what's your excuse there?
