Roy's dark hair - perhaps in keeping with his persona - is worn casually unkempt, falling over his eyes; in more formal or somber situations, however, he is known to wear it neatly slicked back.

At first, due to the lab's close connections to Central Command, Roy opts to end the mission here and regroup, but when Barry - crazed by the idea of being able to chop up his own body - rushes inside against orders, the Colonel decides once again to play off of the confusion and storms in afterward, announcing to the staff inside that he is pursuing a dangerous fugitive and misinforming them that backup is already on its way. Still, Roy reminds his mentor slyly that the Lt. General is still a highly-respected officer with a great number of loyal and war-tempered soldiers under his command, coyly inciting Grumman to action. Mustang reveals that he had told Bradley about his own resolve to stay in the military and remarks that, despite being called a "monster" and a "human weapon", fighting true monsters like Lust and Wrath make him feel truly human. They explain that they are searching for a little girl from Xing characterized by her unusually patterned "pet cat" because her skill with Xingese alchemy may prove to be useful. In the Manga Artbook 3, answering to fan questioning about why hasn't Mustang married Hawkeye at the end of the series, Arakawa stated, Mustang refers to all of his subordinates as chess pieces, with connotation of battle ability, usefulness and personal links they might have to him. He antagonizes everyone, bringing up events that he hopes might bring themselves to fight amongst each other and taunting others with the things they have done. Meanwhile, Mustang encounters Envy, who after being questioned, reveals he was Hughes' killer. After he and Major Armstrong are promoted one rank and sent to Drachma, although Bradley intends for him to die in combat during the Northern Campaign on the front lines, Mustang instead stays in Central, making his move to avenge Hughes' death. Envy then cuts in, mocking their apology. Roy agrees and drops the Elrics off at their hotel before meeting with Madeline, one of Madame Christmas' informants who relays a message from Grumman calling Roy to rendezvous with him the next day in front of Brigadier General Hughes' grave. Colonel Mustang announces, as he fires off wave after wave of flames at her, that if it will take more than a normal kill-shot to subdue her - as she had claimed before - then he will continue killing her until she stays dead. It refers to the Mustang horse for being a wild (though more appropriately feral) animal. Roy and Ed were referenced in the anime Lucky Star along with Apollo Justice and Klavier Gavin from the Ace Attorney series.

Roy's English voice actor, Travis Willingham, is married to fellow voice actress Laura Bailey, the voice of Lust. Though Roy often receives Hughes with disdain and annoyance, when Maes is mysteriously murdered, Roy is overcome with grief and rage to the point that he becomes almost obsessed with finding his friend's killer. However, while these traits do have a place in his real personality, much of his outward persona can perhaps be considered an intentional façade perfectly designed to cause those unfamiliar with him to underestimate his remarkable intelligence and ability.

As a new commander, he scoured the new recruits for trustworthy subordinates who would fulfill his ideals of universal protection and amassed a handful of dependable underlings including Riza Hawkeye, whom he positioned as his personal aide and bodyguard, entrusting his back to her under the agreement that she would protect him from harm and shoot him from behind if his march to power caused him to stray off of the correct path and use the knowledge she had given him with ill intentions.

As the Elrics begin combating the Ishvalan murderer, they ask Roy and Riza not to get in their way, as they need Scar to remain alive and active for as long as possible in order to help them lure out a Homunculus for capture, but when Roy mentions that the military police will likely step in soon, the boys relegate to him the task of keeping the MPs at bay.

As they argue, Roy notices that Gluttony has started to become agitated. But instead, Edward refuses, saying that he will repay Roy the money when Mustang becomes the Führer of Amestris.

Roy Mustang (ロイ・マスタング, Roi Masutangu) is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa. In his "Oxygen de Gentleman Strategy", he uses his gloves to raise the oxygen density around a specific woman to the point that she becomes dizzy. In the Q&A section in Character Guidebook, she said that the car Roy drives in the series is actually his (and not a military car) and that he lives in a narrow rent house in Central. The 'snap' sound heard at the start of these transmutations is caused by the instantaneous speed at which the highly concentrated gases and sparks react together and pop (and not Mustang's fingers actually 'snapping', to common belief.). Edward and Alphonse are skeptical, suggesting that the Führer's wife and son would surely have noticed him acting strangely and even mentioning that, theoretically, homunculi lack even the ability to reproduce. A great fan of classy attire, Mustang is rarely seen out of uniform (and even while in uniform will often don other accouterments, such as a long, black overcoat and white formal-wear gloves), but when dressed in civilian clothes, he appears rather partial to the three-piece suit and black tie (frequently coupled with classic scarves, polished dress shoes and the aforementioned overcoat and gloves). Two years later, it is mentioned that Mustang has been promoted to Brigadier General and is working hard on rebuilding the Ishval region as well as turning it to a trading point between Amestris and the country of Xing. This may refer to a joke made by the omakes of the manga, where, first, Roy is shown to be upset for turning 30 and "start to become old". Bradley asks Mustang if he, too, has any inklings of leaving the military, but Roy remarks that his ambitions prevent him from casting aside his uniform or his dubious title as a State Alchemist and the Führer dismisses them all from his office. One year later, after Mustang had been promoted to the rank of Colonel, Edward arrived at East Area HQ and requested that Roy escort him to Central City for his license examination. Chris Mustang and Roy, who had gone underground and blown up the building, go their separate ways. While at first he is apprehensive of this mode of alchemy, he quickly realizes that because of the absence of the need for transmutation circles he is no longer limited to flame-based alchemy on the battlefield, as seen when he transmutes a stone wall to protect himself, Riza, and Major Alex Louis Armstrong from the Homunculus Father's attacks. Wrath then pushes Mustang into an alchemy circle by pinning his hands to the ground with swords. Though Scar manages to elude capture and leave the city, Mustang receives word from Hughes that turmoil in Central City has caused the members of Central Command to seriously consider transferring Roy to the capital. In the aftermath of the war, as several State Alchemists had thrown away their licenses as penance for the atrocities they had been ordered to commit, Lt. Col. Mustang was assigned to investigate and recruit possible candidates for the State Alchemist program. The doctor says he can cure her with his Philosopher's Stone, but only if Mustang obliges to make a Human Transmutation. There are several implied jokes and remarks on the nature of the relationship between Mustang and Hawkeye in the manga and 2009 series. Rebecca implying Riza might have done immoral things to keep such good positions in the military. He explains his actions to Edward in the end of Episode 48, saying that he has given up his goal of becoming Führer to avenge Hughes, much like Edward had given up restoring Al with the Stone.
