Possible Opponents[]


Alex is the only son of the rich and powerful Armstrong family, and enrolled in the Amestris military where he rose to the rank of major thanks to his leadership and alchemy skills. However, due to his unwillingness to kill innocents on the battlefield, he has been denied further promotions; his rank betrays his true abilities.

Death Battle Info[]


  • Gauntlets with inscribed transmutation circles allow the transmutation of certain materials simply by making contact with them; in Alex's case, this is most often done by punching
  • Shown to be able to transmute stone, brick, and metal.
  • Due to the nature of alchemy, he can transmute any substance that contains similar compounds and elements to the above materials
  • Uses his combat alchemy to punch falling rubble and reshape it into sharp projectiles
  • Transmutes enemy melee weapons
  • Uses the ground to form massive blocks, or spikes to impale opponents

Physical Strength[]

  • Moved two bookshelves out of his way with zero effort
  • Transported (and threw) Alphonse Elric's metal body over his shoulder with ease
  • Sent Sloth the homunculus flying with a single punch. Sloth had earlier tanked a mortar shell fired from a tank without even flinching.



  • Fought on par with Scar and Roa the Chimera
  • Killed the homunculus Sloth

Misc. Talents[]

  • Portraiture
  • Firewood Chopping
  • Tracking
  • Cross-Country Running
  • All of the above have been passed down the Armstrong Family for generations!


  • Noted by Scar that he leaves himself open with his swings. This may have been a deliberate ruse to lure Scar into being shot.
  • Considered by some to be a coward on the battlefield due to his refusal to kill. This also prevented him from being promoted above Major.
  • Lost (badly) to his sister Olivier in a battle for the Armstrong inheritance. His later defeat of Sloth, who Olivier could not defeat, indicates that she simply overwhelmed him with fighting techniques, and not physical strength. Most of the battle was unseen.
