Having made a great many Fullmetal Alchemist wallpapers and icons, I’ve looked at a lot of different fonts, searching for ones that most closely resemble the FMA title lettering (or make for creative variations on it). I thought others might be able to benefit from my searches and comparisons as well, so I put together this page, with samples and links to a variety of fonts that are useful for FMA graphics. Aside from title-lettering fonts, I’ve even included several dingbats (including authentic alchemy symbols) that I use to create my own transmutation circles.
Each of the fonts shown on this page can be downloaded for free. The download links all direct to the excellent free font site DaFont.com, with the exception of the Alchemy font, which comes from FFonts.net.
This set of examples shows (at least in my opinion) some of the best fonts to use for titles in FMA graphics. “Wolfred Nelson”, in particular, is by far the closest thing I’ve found to the official FMA logo title lettering. Others offer variations on the style that fit very well with the “feel” of the series.
Wolfred Nelson - CF Nelson Old Caracters - Go 2 Old Western - Hello Arson
