10 anime characters who look like Edward Elric
Fullmetal Alchemist: BrotherhoodThe co-stars of are brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, and between them, Edward is the most important character whose decisions have the most impact on the story. After all, the title of the anime refers to Edward’s arm and leg: he is The Fullmetal Alchemist.
In some ways, Edward is a standard but lovable Shonen hero, with classic traits like his incredible courage and courage in combat, his kind and empathetic heart, and his clever underdog tactics in combat. He’s also a gifted scientist with an angry temper, especially when it comes to his size, which makes him a star among the shonen stars. It can also remind viewers of a handful of other anime characters.
ten Tenya Ida is bright but nervous like Edward (My Hero Academia)
Tenya Ida is a runner and his fighting style is based on speed rather than chemistry, which sets him apart from Edward Elric. Otherwise, however, these two characters have a remarkable overlap, including their edgy personalities and rather short temper. Tenya is known to deal with troublemakers quite often.
Tenya does mean well, however, and he has a strong sense of responsibility. And like Edward, he’s a very smart guy, who gets good grades in school while having shelves full of advanced volumes that impressed Ochaco Uraraka. Ed wouldn’t mind reading them too.
9 Joseph Joestar is a smart prankster who annoys people (JoJo’s bizarre adventure)
Joseph Joestar was the star of the Combat tendency narrative arc, and even in the sixties Stardust Crusaders, he was still a smart, funny action hero who always had a trick to getting out of trouble. He is famous for saying “You may have foiled me, but I foiled your foil!”
That’s what Edward Elric would say, and both characters are known to use their wits rather than brute force to defeat most of their enemies (although they also have formidable strength). Both characters are also quite outgoing and are prone to forming rivalries or petty grudges.
8 Vulcan Joseph is bright but works independently (Fire Force)
When first introduced, the brilliant handyman Vulcan looked a lot like Edward Elric, as he has a quick wit for science but doesn’t like being told what to do. He had rejected many job offers for the eight fire companies, preferring to operate outside the system.
It’s similar to how Edward Elric is an official State Alchemist, but rarely follows orders. Instead, Edward and his brother have their own mission, and their allies must be people of noble disposition. Otherwise, forget about it.
7 Futaro Uesugi has a short temper but good grades (quintuplets par excellence)
The ace student Futaro Uesugi has a little more patience than the fierce Edward Elric, but not much more. He takes pride in his good grades, and hopefully those good grades will allow him to enter a top university, despite his family’s very modest income. He also gives private lessons to the five Nakano sisters, which is quite a challenge.
Futaro’s quick wit and explosive personality make him roughly similar to Edward Elric, and like Ed, Futaro can’t give up on anyone who needs him. He will help these Nakano sisters get good grades through thick and thin.
6 Kyo Sohma is a fierce Tsundere with a strong sense of loyalty (fruit basket)
Kyo Sohma has his strengths and flaws, just like Edward Elric, and that makes him a finely balanced and easy-to-root character. Like Ed, Kyo has an angry temper and is not too quick to show his feelings. He and Edward are classic male tsunderes, with strong but well-hidden feelings for others just below the surface.
Edward has serious feelings for Winry Rockbell, and Kyo Sohma’s heart belongs to the lovely and kind Tohru Honda. Kyo won’t admit it too easily, but his actions speak for themselves. He risks everything to protect Tohru from Akito and other threats.
5 Taro Kabakura is a bit aggressive but has his romantic side (Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Otaku)
This series takes place in the modern office, not high school, but many of the same social dynamics are still in place. The main four characters are closed-ended otaku with eccentric personalities, and Taro Kabakura is simultaneously in love and constantly in conflict with his colleague and friend Hanako Koyanagi.
Taro is an office supervisor and is comfortable coordinating teams to get work done on time. He’s also known for his hot-tempered temper and willingness to endless arguments with Hanako, but this is how they show how much they care about him. Deep down, Taro cares a lot about his friends, and he would do anything to make Hanako happy.
4 Chrome works easily but has a creative mind (Dr. Stone)
As far as scientists go, Chrome and Senku Ishigami have a lot in common with Edward Elric, but Chrome’s personality is what makes him more like Edward, as opposed to the cold-headed Senku. Chrome may not be up to Senku’s level, but he is eager to learn and he has come up with his own inventions and tricks.
All of this, combined with Chrome’s easily excitable and enthusiastic demeanor, makes him surprisingly similar to Edward Elric. The only major difference is that Chrome doesn’t seem to have a serious love interest.
3 Lucy Heartfilia is intelligent and has hot passions (Fairy Tail)
Lucy Heartfilia is a smart, well-educated girl who makes the most of her celestial magic, carrying numerous gold and silver keys to summon a variety of spirits into battle. She might not be a scientist, but her resourceful and insightful mind is on par with that of Edward Elric.
Lucy is also known to be very protective of her friends and allies, just like Edward, and she has a lively personality too. She might not have an explosive temper, but Lucy is easily annoyed or annoyed, just like Ed.
2 Uryu Ishida is brilliant and works easily (bleach)
Uryu Ishida is a skilled Quincy archer who has a lot in common with Edward Elric and Lucy Heartfilia. Uryu is generally cool and calm in combat and in everyday life, but if something outrageous happens or someone annoys him, Uryu is likely to lose his temper and return immediately.
Uryu also becomes very defensive towards his good friend Orihime Inoue, seeing her in the same way that Edward sees Winry Rockbell. And like Ed, Uryu is a cunning and resourceful fighter in combat, always ahead of his enemies Soul Reaper or Arrancar.
1 Sokka always knows what to do next (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Sokka of the Southern Water Tribe may not have alchemy or bending at his disposal, but he is a shrewd strategist, inventor and investigator, talents that have saved the day time and time again. It was Sokka who understood the solar eclipse, for example, and Sokka invented the whole concept of submarines, although his plans are admittedly simplistic.
Katara, Aang, and Toph all rely on Sokka to plan their next move, and Sokka even helped craft the Fire Nation invasion plan. Likewise, Edward Elric always knows what to do next, and Alphonse usually follows his lead.
