Edward Elric is the main protagonist and title character of Hiromu Arakawa's manga and anime series Fullmetal Alchemist. He is best known for his performances in r/anime's major contests, where he appeared in the Elite Eight on all editions of Best Guy and Best Character since its inception. However, Edward is also notorious for falling just short of the title (pun intended). This curse was finally broken when he won Best Character 5 in 2021.

Outside of r/anime, the alchemist is a noted regular in the ISML contest, reaching the playoffs three times (2015, 2016, and 2017). In the review aggregator website MyAnimeList, Edward ranks among the top 10 characters by member favorites, behind Lelouch, Levi, L, Luffy. Light, and Okabe.
