** More like FridgeLogic, but during The Inherited Turnabout during AAI:2, von Karma's shocked sprite doesn't grip his shoulder. Of course- [[spoiler: he hasn't been shot there yet]].

* There are two major varieties the Telling The Truth themes come in - slow and calm (''Trials and Tribulations'' and ''Apollo Justice'') or much darker and confrontational (''Justice For All'' and ''Dual Destinies''). This demonstrates the two forms finding a hidden truth often takes; either it is a relief to finally find the truth after so much work or the truth you find is an AwfulTruth.

*** On the other hand Dhalia mananged to get phoenix basicly into the same or at least a very similar state of mind. While he was much more naive then he is as a lawer, Phoenix was a pretty normal guy at that time. So it is possible that Terry was brainwashed into killing himself by Dhalia.

** During the 4th case of Spirit of Justice, seeing Blackquill and Sahdmadhi in the same courtroom made me realize that, not only do they have opposite character designs, but they're both parallels in more ways than even that. Both have histories with Wright's two subordinates, Blackquill with Athena and Sahdmadhi with Apollo, and we eventually find out that [[spoiler: both were friends with Athena and Apollo, respectively, and both needed their old friend to save them from something by the end of the game.]] Now let's look at their designs. Blackquill wears predominantly black, has long disheveled hair, which is also black for the most part, and in general has a intimidating appearance. However, parts of his hair and outfit are white. This perfectly reflects his personality and role in the fifth game. [[spoiler: Blackquill was a prisoner and the convicted murderer of Metis Cykes, so he put on a dark, intimidating personality fit for a criminal, which is reflected in his predominately black outfit. He constantly refers to his time in prison during arguments, and he makes many intimidating threats, including slashing out at witnesses and the attorneys he's facing up against. However, the truth is he's innocent, and he made a selfless sacrifice to protect the daughter of his mentor, which shows that he's really a kind person at heart, something reflected by the streaks of white in his hair and outfit.]] Sahdmadhi, meanwhile, is predominantly clad in white, has neat white hair that has been meticulously braided, and has a calm, gentle appearance. Yet his glove [[spoiler: and the Mark of the Dragon it covers]] is black. Once again, this conveys his personality. [[spoiler: Sahdmadhi makes himself out to be a spiritual man who is loyal to the Queen of Khur'ain, placing himself on the moral and spiritual high ground in arguments and seemingly valuing his duty to the Queen more important than familial ties or his own desires. However beneath this is the same fiery revolutionary that he was under his father Dhurke, which he reveals fully when the Queen no longer has his hands tied and he's able to finally revolt against her. Both wind up being good people, swayed and manipulated along the way, but ultimately staying true to themselves in the very end, and fighting to protect the truth against those who try to obscure it for their own gain, mending their relationships with Athena and Apollo in the process, and becoming allies in the trials (both literally and figuratively) they'll face moving forwards.]]

*** Alternatively, Von Karma might've been waiting for Edgeworth to tarnish his perfect record. Edgeworth at the time had a perfect record. The same kind of perfect record that Von Karma once prided himself in before Gregory gave him the penalty that [[spoiler: drove him to revenge in the first place.]] In other words, [[spoiler: the son of the man who had tarnished Von Karma's perfect record was now standing in court with a perfect record of his own. If he had just gone in and framed Edgeworth right then, sure, Von Karma would always have to live with the thought that, had Edgeworth not been framed, he could've been a better prosecutor than Von Karma, perhaps with even a longer perfect streak. That kind of thinking would've eaten away at Von Karma, so he waited until Edgeworth lost a few trials first, ensuring Von Karma that Edgeworth was not a better prosecutor than him, and that he could proceed with his revenge.]]

* We know about 4 {{Yakuza}}[=/=]{{Mafia}} families, Amano, Cadaverini, Kitaki, and the ones Vasques is involved with. Not only does it mean that the town is pretty dangerous, but the Amano son owes the Cadaverini daughter money. Which means that a [[MobWar mafia war]] could happen...

* There was a missed moment of brilliance in Case 2-3. So, [[spoiler:Acro sets up an elaborate trap to kill someone without having to visually confirm where they were. Phoenix works out how the box setup was used to solve the issue of aiming. However, nobody every brings up the problem of ''timing'' when to drop the bust. How did Acro know exactly the moment that his victim's head was in the right spot? What if he had covered the top of the box in pepper? The target leans down to pick up or open the box, sneezes, Acro drops the bust. This would also have been a great moment of karmic retribution for the prank that took away his brother.]]

** The aforementioned reveal from ''Spirit of Justice'' about the memory of a channelled spirit being cut off at the time of death is phrased in a somewhat vague way that could also allow for the interpretation that spirits are, in fact, conscious after death, but lose their memory of anything that happened during that time once they are channelled. With this interpretation, the above Fridge TearJerker still stands.

* The reason Phoenix and Edgeworth don't face off as much after the first game to is due in part to Edgeworth's HeelFaceTurn. Phoenix [[GoodLawyersGoodClients refuses to defend guilty clients on principle,]] and the magatama usually lets him tell when his client is hiding something [[spoiler:(Matt Engarde being the only exception so-far)]]. And post-JFA Edgeworth does his best to ensure that whoever he prosecutes is actually guilty [[spoiler:(to the point of ''defending'' those who have been accused by less scrupulous prosecutors, as in ''[=T&T=]'' and ''Investigations 2'')]]. If Edgeworth does his job right, Phoenix's defense isn't necessary.
