** ''Spirit of Justice'' introduces the royal family of Khura'in. [[spoiler:Apollo is the adoptive brother of Nahyuta, begotten son of Dhurke and Queen Amara (and therefore Apollo is also an adopted half-brother of Princess Rayna), and Queen Amara is a direct descendant of the Holy Mother... as is the ancestral line of Kurain Village, which emigrated from Khura'in, and which, amusingly, means Phoenix is now distantly related to Maya and Pearls through adoption.]]

* MatterOfLifeAndDeath: In ''Trials and Tribulations'' it is shown on two occasions that murder is a capital crime, thus all the trials are this for the defendants. This fits with the Japanese origin of the game as the one time we hear details of an execution, it is performed by hanging as it would be in reality.

* {{Leitmotif}}: Several characters have their own personal theme songs that changes through the series. Compare Gumshoe's themes from ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBOv1Ce6olA Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vEwsdbrums Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth]]''. Also doubles as LeaningOnTheFourthWall with Phoenix and Godot, whose phone ringtones are chiptunes of their leitmotifs.

** The assistants, Maya and Trucy, are also fond of grabbing things and the protagonist often has to talk them out of stealing things. Not that they call it stealing mark you.

** The assistants, Maya and Trucy, are also fond of grabbing things and the protagonist often has to talk them out of stealing things. Not that they call it stealing mark you. Subverted with Kay, ironically enough, who, despite calling herself a great thief, never once steals anything.

** ''Justice for All'' features a prosecutor who wields a whip, a murder where all the witnesses are obnoxious circus performers and the cross-examination of a [[spoiler:radio transmitter with a professional assassin at the other side]]. Character design becomes more elaborated and colorful from this point on, with way quirkier witnesses that would serve as the series' standard.

** ''Apollo Justice'' deserves special mention here, with most of the defendants and witnesses(including your own clients, mentor and ''assistant'') going out of their way to obscure the truth, often because they are trying to protect someone or conceal some secret. Wocky Kitaki(your client in Case 2) outright requests a guilty verdict ''in court'' [[spoiler:for a murder he didn't commit]]. Machi Tomaye and Lamiroir from Case 3 are particularly bad about [[spoiler:pretending they don't speak English to cover for their illegal smuggling of Borginian cocoons and extensively lying on the stand in order to protect Machi]], respectively, making Apollo's case much more challenging to prove. [[spoiler:They're both innocent of the murder being investigated]].
