* PlatonicLifePartners: She and Phoenix are officially this, though they're not without their ShipTease moments. They were attached at the hip back in the day, and are very clearly devoted to each other.

* ShooOutTheClowns: She is largely absent in both "Farewell, My Turnabout" and "Bridge to the Turnabout" -- the final cases of the 2nd and 3rd game, respectively.

Phoenix's adopted daughter and magician extraordinaire (in training), and the Heir to the Gramarye name. Her best tricks are "The Amazing Mr. Hat", a wooden puppet almost as big as her that she can [[{{Hammerspace}} somehow]] hide in her cloak, and "Magic Panties", where she pulls out all sorts of bizarre items from frozen turkeys to mops to noodle bowls... all from a large pair of panties. She manages the talent branch of "Wright Anything".

* MagneticHero: His honest drive for truth and justice warrants the admiration of several people, and he tends to be at least partially responsible for CharacterDevelopment the other major characters undergo. By the sixth game, he's amassed quite a lot of TrueCompanions because of this trait.



* NotSoDifferent: In ''Justice For All'', Acro comments that Phoenix is really not so different from Franziska, as they both approach the world tainted by their own biases. Needless to say, Phoenix is none too pleased with this, although the next case brings into stark contrast just how true it is. [[spoiler: And by the end, both Phoenix and Franziska's world view evolved.]]

* PlatonicLifePartners: With Maya. Although they're not [[ShipTease officially]] a couple, they are very close and rely on each other quite a lot. Phoenix never hesitates to rush to her aid whenever she's in trouble (in the prologue anime of ''Spirit of Justice'' he flies ''all the way around the world'' because he thought she was in danger from a brief phone call, and he in fact does this [[spoiler: ''again'' in "Turnabout Revolution"]]) and is willing to do questionable things in order to keep her safe.



* ClosetGeek: He keeps manga on his desk. [[BlatantLies It's totally useful for research purposes]].



* NeatFreak: According to "Spirit of Justice," Apollo instinctively cleans when he sees a mess because he's the only one who ever cleans up at the agency.



* PowerIncontinence: As a child, she was prone to SensoryOverload due to being able to [[TheEmpath hear the feelings of everyone]] in the vicinity.



* StepfordSmiler: When [[spoiler:she's arrested for Clay's murder]] after helping clear Starbuck's name, she hides her distress and shoots Starbuck a bright smile and a congratulations. Athena is guilty of this trope in general as well, hiding her horrific past behind a cheerful, energetic demeanour, even when she is forced to revisit her childhood home.

* {{Deuteragonist}}: Her role in ''Trials & Tribulations''. She appears in every single case of the game (the only game in the series in which that happens), is playable in two {{Whole Episode Flashback}}s and factors into the motivations of two major antagonists, and even teams up with Phoenix to deliver a "BreakThemByTalking" to the BigBad in the game's climax.

Miles' old man, and a stunning defense attorney. He was the only one to make a mark on von Karma's performance record (before [[InvincibleHero Nick]] came bungling along). His English name may come from Creator/GregoryPeck, who played [[Film/ToKillAMockingbird Atticus Finch]] and whom Gregory Edgeworth strongly resembles. In ''Ace Attorney Investigations 2'', he became an AscendedExtra and is featured in plot-important flashbacks.

* HonorBeforeReason: Phoenix is not really determined to get his client to go free as much as he's dedicated to the ideal of justice, and this is never more apparent than in his darkest hour: case 2-4. Phoenix has to decide between winning the case or [[spoiler: ensure justice was delivered]]. Phoenix actually manages to not only get a watertight case in favor of his client, but also [[spoiler:to point at Adrian Andrews as the real killer]]. The Judge then asks what course of action Phoenix wants to pursue, and he has the choice of asking for the Judge to pass a Not Guilty verdict or allow [[spoiler:Andrews]] to testify. Phoenix, ''having already basically won the case'', decides he does not want to leave any doubt of his client's innocence nor deny [[spoiler:Andrews']] right to testify. [[spoiler:Andrews]] then proceeds to not only prove [[spoiler:her]] innocence, but also riddles Phoenix's case full of holes, and the Judge decides to extend the trial one more day. Phoenix broke down in agony, thinking to himself that, had he done what he wanted to instead of what was right, [[spoiler: Maya would not be doomed to death]]. Note that you can actually take the option to let the Judge pass the Not Guilty verdict. The result is the same; but instead of Phoenix allowing [[spoiler:Andrews]] to testify, Edgeworth cuts in and ''forces'' [[spoiler:her]] to.
