* A minor FridgeBriliance regarding all the Schiso Tech - things like Edgeworth's smartphone and the Court having a flatscreen HD TV while Phoenix Wright and co still use oldschool "brick" cellphones, 90% photographic evidence presented being black and whtie, most of the security equipment using tape and CRT monitors, etc. This is probably simply due to the financial situations of all the parties involved - Phoenix is barely above Gumshoe's paygrade due to his clients hardly ever paying for his services, while places like the Global Studios and KB security were deliberately lowballing their security. Besides that the cases took place in desolate villages, mountain shrines, flashbacks to several years prior, circuses, endebted restaurants - all places where you wouldn't see much high-tech stuff either way. Meanwhile prosecutors and courts are all considered to be very prestigeous jobs - you can litearly be famous and they really don't spare much expense on... well, anything, hence the high technology standard.

** On another vein, there's the often-pointed out fact that conflict of interest never seems to show up in the series, often having prosecutors being accused of murder yet still prosecuting the case. The only time conflict of interest is known to be applied [[spoiler:ended up with the prosecutor and the defendant dead...]]

* FridgeHorror: Why does Blaise bother getting Sebastian[[spoiler: all these different rewards and prestige, when he clearly doesn't care about how Sebastian is actually doing? He just loves to use his influence to force things from people. He doesn't ever care about Sebastian's feelings towards something, he just sees him as a tool to find new things to control.]]

** Double poignant when you realize [[spoiler:"Calisto" and Shih-na have completely different skin tones. If the paler Shih-na tone is her natural skin color then sweating off her makeup would blow years of undercover work.]]

* Some FridgeBrilliance in 2-5: One of the clues that allows Edgeworth and Co. to track down the kidnapped John Marsh is one of the milk cartons he's always drinking, which he dropped when he was grabbed. [[FaceOnAMilkCarton A milk carton helped find a missing child]].

* Again about case 2-3: one of the most salient plot points is the [[spoiler:statute of limitations]] and how it is applied. At the time, it was interpreted as, basically, "[[spoiler:if an accomplice is put on trial and judged guilty, the statute of limitations on the true culprit is put on hold for the duration of the accomplice's trial]]". However, there ''is'' room for a happy ending: [[spoiler:the statutes specifies that "If any ''possible'' accomplices are put on trial, then the time limit is put on hold ''until the accomplice's verdict is reached.''". A judge (possibly even Judgey!) could re-interpret this as "If someone is put on trial for being a ''possible'' accomplice, then the statute of limitations for the true culprit is put on hold until the verdict ''no matter which verdict it is''"]]. It would even tie nicely with the "The law grows as the people grow" message.

* Case 2-3 shows what's probably the first time [[spoiler:Badd refused to bow down to his superiors (von Karma) in order to make the truth known]]. He ends up forming a bond with Gregory Edgeworth because of that, and it may be the spark that [[spoiler:pushed him into joining the Yatagarasu after the KG-8 Incident]].

** Of course, by this point he's.... [[spoiler:relived his fear of earthquakes, unexpectedly encountered a body, been accused of murder, solved a murder, been ambushed in a haunted house, taken a TapOnTheHead, been abducted, reunited with an old friend, reunited with ''Oldbag'', reunited with a GenkiGirl he just vaguely remembers, reunited with Franziska, met an Interpol agent who arrests first and asks questions later, found ''another'' body, solved ''another'' murder, and learned that it all has the common thread of a smuggling ring.]] One can imagine that his first reaction to finding ''yet another'' body and being held at gunpoint in his own office would be "''What '''NOW'''''?"



** She's also visibly twitchy when doing so, also retouching her eyeliner and her lipstick nervously.

* FridgeBrilliance in case 1-3, for while Edgeworth was using the [=iFly=] suitcase for the ransom. It seems rude that he's giving away something that was a gift (that he didn't want), but it has a very practical use in this situation. The colors and design of the suitcase are very eye catching, and the fact that [[spoiler:it never sold well]] means that it's a rare suitcase. Assuming the kidnappers didn't think to empty the money into another bag, it serves as a giant bullseye for the police to spot the kidnappers and get the drop on them.

** He was also threatened with a gun by [[spoiler:Calisto Yew]] seven years prior, and there he was so terrified that he completely froze up and had to be pushed out of the way by someone else, making his calm handling of the situation with [[spoiler:Detective Badd]] a rather strange example of character development.
