in the episode of the anime where ed takes the alchemy exam something happens that has always made me think. you now the part where the guy makes a ballon out of the trees and water, and it starts to crash into the tower the other guy made, Roy Mustang put his glove on and says, "thats not good"
my question is what could he possible do in that situation. and then it hit me:
his alchemy works when he changes the Oxygen in the air to make fire, from a spark or an existing fire. can he change the oxygen in the air to kill a fire, as in put it out?
my friends and I have been discussing this since last year. I feel he should be able to put out an existing fire, most of my friends dont. can you help me out?
