* The three imperial regalia of Japan are the jewel (magatama), the sword, and the mirror. We have Phoenix, an attorney who actually uses the magatama. We have Miles Edgeworth, a prosecutor whose (western) name refers to the edge of a sword. And lastly, we have Justine Courtly, a Judge whose original name means 'water mirror'. This way, all three the regalia are represented in court.

* Remember how Godot mentions [[spoiler:that he can't see the color red on white? This is not only literal, there's a deeper meaning to it. He blames Phoenix for Mia Fey's death, despite him not actually being the culprit. Now, remember who actually murdered Mia in the said case? That's right, a man by the name of Redd White.]]

** 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.]]

** Maybe not. Both [[spoiler: Ernest]] and [[spoiler: Lance]] were arrested after being associated with Alba's smuggling ring and while it is true that the latter owes [[spoiler: Viola]] some dough, it would be kinda pointless to try and kill him in prison (If that was the case, then her grandfather Bruto would of definitely went all Imprisoned Turnabout on [[spoiler: Tigre]] by now.) Plus, it's implied that the Amanos lost their influence after they were arrested, so they wouldn't have the means to fight back anyways and it would be a pretty [[CurbStompBattle one-sided battle.]]

** 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.

*** 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.]]
