Universal Differences

In the "Fullmetal Alchemist", the process generally requires a circular array, though the design varies depending on the intent. The method of carrying it also varies, from drawing it with chalk, having it pre-drawn on paper or stitched into clothing, or even desperately drawing it in one's own blood.

Alchemists who absorb knowledge from The Gate of Truth, (notably Edward Elric, Alphonse Elric, Izumi Curtis, and Van Hohenheim) can clasp their arms (real or prosthetic) and then simply touch the material to be transmuted, though the process is very rare.
