* TheArtifact: The 3-Day limit for trials. Most cases nowadays go on for 2 days and do it just fine, allowing more content per trial sections and better pacing for the narrative.

* WhamShot: In Dual Destinies, near the end of Turnabout to Tomorrow, [[spoiler: the black Psyche-locks first introduced in Apollo Justice reappear again. On Athena. These are the special Psyche-locks that won't break no matter what. However, when the truth behind the murder of Anthea's mother is brought to the fore, we get an even bigger WhamShot: the supposedly unbreakable black Psyche-locks on Athena all shatter in unison.]]

* AlternateCharacterReading: In the original Japanese version, the {{Meaningful Name}}s of some of the characters are disguised to look like normal names by turning everything into kanji (while others just straight up pick special, meaningful combinations of kanji to use as their names). For example, Ryuuichi Naruhodō (Phoenix Wright)'s last name, Naruhodō, comes from なるほど (Naruhodo, "I see"), but is written as 成歩堂 (Naruhodō), where 成 is Naru, 歩 is ho, and the last do is prolonged into dō and written as 堂.

* RecurringElement: A common theme for cases is an otherwise innocuous and wholesome line of work being the scene and focus of a murder, usually revealing it's dark underside.
** ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney'' and ''Justice for All'' has children's Sentai shows.
** The main games (except ''Apollo Justice'') and ''Investigations'' feature masked entities (which may or may not overlap with Sentai shows).
** ''Justice for All'', ''Trials and Tribulations'' and ''Spirit of Justice'' have spirit channelling.
** ''Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney'' and ''Spirit of Justice'' have Stage Magicians.
** ''Spirit of Justice'' also features a case based around Rakugo performance..
** And perhaps most ridiculous of all, ''Gyakuten Kenji 2'' reveals that the case that started the entire series main plot, ending in the murder of Gregory Edgeworth and public disgracing of Misty Fey, was about the cutthroat world of Dessert Chefs.

** The details and the styles may be different, but the courtrooms in every single game (sans the two ''Investigations'' games) feature similar looking waiting rooms that are always guarded by two guards, the Judge is always a big bearded old man with no name, and there's always Winston Payne, one of his relatives, or an expy of him waiting for you at the tutorial stage.

** It reaches a boiling point in ''VideoGame/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'' with the second case in the game, which takes place in traditional Japanese village where a {{Yokai}} spirit was supposedly sealed. The English translation attempted to get by it saying it was a village full of Japanese immigrants. And the [[{{Yokai}} Yokai spirit]] apparently immigrated with them.

* PunnyName: ''[[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Everybody.]]'' The few people whose names aren't some sort of pun or reference have usually just kept variations on their Japanese name (which are [[BilingualBonus puns in their own right]]).
** Where the naming department is concerned, ''Spirit of Justice'' is a HurricaneOfPuns. Taken [[UpToEleven to extremes]] with the OverlyLongName of [[spoiler: Inga Karkhuul Haw'kohd Dis'nahm Bi'ahni Lawga Ormo Pohmpus Da'nit Ar'edi Iz Khura'in III]].

* ItRunsInTheFamily: Shared character tics are used as evidence in trying to prove '[[EpilepticTree Character X is related to Character Y]]' in forums. Amusingly, some character poses are shared by members of the MasterApprenticeChain of attorneys and prosecutors, with Phoenix using some of Mia's gestures and Apollo copying Phoenix, while Edgeworth used a gesture borrowed from Manfred von Karma and Simon Blackquill uses a gesture that imitates Edgeworth.
