In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, one case takes place in a traditional Japanese village where a Yokai spirit was supposedly sealed. In the localization, it's a village in America founded by Japanese immigrants. However, it works in the context of that case, since the "Yokai" is revealed to just be superstition, and is actually a huge chunk of gold that drove the villagers to fight each other over it. With California having a fairly famous gold rush, it becomes Fridge Brilliance on the part of the localization team.

** Also, revealing the truth when it comes to your own emotions and feelings is not exactly welcome, seeing how much the Japanese love TheStoic. Many times, the characters have to hide their anguish inside for the sake of others, even if it hurts them and they are, technically, hiding the truth ([[spoiler:like Maya and how she feels after her mother died, Phoenix after Case 3 in ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney or after his disbarrment in ''Apollo Justice'', Apollo's "I'M FINE!" scream, the whole "A lawyer always smiles and only cries when it's all over" message, among others]]). Hiding how you truly feel and lying about it seems to be much more acceptable than expressing your true emotions.

* CreatorCameo: Prior to ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney'', all the in-game voice clips were provided by members of the development and localization teams. ''[=PLvsAA=]'' and ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'' use professional voice actors for most characters due to the greater amount of dialogue and higher sound quality offered by the 3DS, but the teams still do voice clips for the more minor characters

** The games refer to all interrogation of witnesses as "cross-examination." Cross-examination refers to interrogation of the opponent's witnesses, and follows direct examination, which is interrogation of the lawyer's own witnesses. While most witnesses in the series ''are'' summoned by the prosecution, exceptions date as far back as the bellboy in 1-2.

** ''Spirit of Justice'' plays with this twice, though the mentor in question is always a mentor to another character from the case- Abbot Tahrust Inmee is the mentor to Puhray Zeh'lot, and is the victim in the case [[spoiler:actually killing himself to protect his pregnant wife from being prosecuted for Abbot's accidental death]], and done again in the very next case with Taifu Toneido, who was the mentor to two of the witnesses and died shortly after passing on his title to one of them.

** The games play loose with the definition of the word "lie." If a detective forgets a detail, someone will say that his testimony "contains a lie." If someone misinterprets a photograph and you have to point out something in the photo that disproves their claim, your assistant will say, "find the '''lie''' in the photograph!"

* LostInTranslation: Mostly averted: character name meanings and puns are generally carried over to English and French about as well as can be hoped[[note]]However, some languages like Spanish use the English names and therefore the audience doesn't see the puns[[/note]]. A few things are lost that make things somewhat more sensible (notably the kanji for dragon in Phoenix's Japanese name, see AnimalStereotypes above). Of course, the JapanesePronouns are lost, but most of the time it's not a big deal. However, at one point they're used to emphasize [[spoiler:that the Matt Engarde you meet at first and the one he reveals himself to be are ''not'' the same person. The former uses "boku" (a boyish pronoun) while the latter uses "ore" (a more serious, adult one). Thankfully, the rest of TheReveal is enough to make the change ''very'' obvious]].
