When the sacrifices are forcibly summoned in the room through Father, Alphonse's spirit isn't present. In the white room, Alphonse insurance claims that he wants his body earlier but refuses to do so speak "I can't hit in a body prefer this". This seems to indicate that he can have gained his body ago at that allude and returned to the real human being with his soul back in his person body. But if this were the case, Izumi and Edward would have actually just opted to get everything they were missing back. Due to the fact that in the show, castle don't get their respective body parts back, the scene with Alphonse and also his physical body doesn't make much sense. Anyone treatment to explain?

I don't think so. If the had taken his body ago right then, the still would have been stuck in the gate. It take it Ed's sacrifice come "balance the books" and also get Al's body and also soul earlier from Truth. As for why Al refused to rejoin his body and also soul ideal then through the logic of "I require this armor body ideal now and can't fight with my actual one", ns think that was much more along the currently of him not learning at the time that he, through himself, couldn't go back to the real people with his genuine body.

You are watching: Does alphonse elric get his body back

From what I’ve to be able to rationalize that is due as well that once some thing dies. All it way is their “souls vessel” is broken. The body breaks down and becomes part of “the whole”. While the is happening The spirit goes where ever before it does. (Recycled into an additional body? Transferred into another kind of energy? that knows wherein souls really go.) it is the regular cycle in ~ least.

Human Transmutation stops working for somewhat of a good reasons

A heart brought earlier from death, have the right to not exist perfectly in ~ a vessel that is no its original. (Berry the choppers soul was ripped native his vessel rather damaging it, and also put stated soul in a fit of armor. The armor doesn’t decay, or weaken. However the spongy body that was left behind, had a animals soul put inside the it. Therefore the body began to react and decay.)

You don’t always call ago the correct soul. (And therefore, the created vessel native the transmutation doesn’t look prefer it is mean too.)

When Ed and also Al did their HT castle tried to contact their mother’s spirit back. (which they go not). And also the an outcome was a fear show. The profession in their transmutation was Al’s entire body and soul. And also Ed’s Leg.

Note, I said it to be traded. No destroyed. Broken down sure, but it’s components were really much tho on the other side the the gate. (They usage this principle in FMA 2003, i m sorry is why wrath has actually eds arm and also leg). (This must have been a bit of influence from arakawa).

Ed climate trades his arm for al’s soul and bonds it to a item of armor. (Leaving the “intact” body past the gate).

Now us dont see Barry the choppers soul acquiring “called back” favor Al’s due to the fact that his vessel already has a spirit in it. Yet Al’s vessel is perfectly fine, yet it is soulless.

During the ending scenes alphonse does kind of toy with the idea of having actually his body back, however he would be grounding in it. The wouldn’t be able to “fight” due to the fact that he would still be “traded”. He’d be gone. Ago where it started so come speak.
