* 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.

* The Japanese title for AceAttorneyInvestigations is Turnabout Prosecutor. In AAI 2, [[spoiler: A conflict in the game is having Edgeworth choose between being a prosecutor or working as a lawyer like his dad. In the first case you play as Edgeworth the prosecutor. The second, you play as an assistant for your dad's law office's attorney Shield (because Courtney revoked your right to investigate as the prosecutor for Knightley's crime is changed into Sebastian instead). The third has you switching between Miles and Gregory (the lawyer). The fourth case has Edgeworth abandoning his prosecutor badge and (again) working under Shield. In the end of the fifth case, Courtney returns the badge and Edgeworth vows to continue to devote himself as a prosecutor and reform the law. [[TitleDrop Turnabout Prosecutor]] indeed!]]

*** This troper thinks that Fransizka consider's the von Karma name to be above her father's ways. While she isen't the BEST person in the world (she's upset at losing, she conceals testimonies ect) she probably had no idea beforehand that her father forged evidence and made illegal deals to win cases. I believe that going this far to win was above even Fransizka, as evidence when she says that a von Karma should never break the law. Also, she acually at one point states her disgust at how "attornies defend criminals". To this troper at least, this represents how Franziska ACUALLY DOES what the truth to be found but she is in denial. When it turns out her version of events are wrong, she still wants to think that the true killer is the defendant even with evidence pilled agaisnt that fact. Not because she wants a guilty verdict (although it's stated serveal times she does her job to solely get guilty verdicts, this is probably her niaveness talking and she thinks that all those who are arrested are arrested because they are guilty) but because she dosen't want to think that she's made a mistake in her accusations.

** ''Investigations 2'' shows that Franziska had ''no idea'' her father was willing to forge evidence to win cases. It's entirely possible that, until the point her father's truth is revealed to her, she believed he was just an extremely intimidating prosecutor that otherwise did no wrong... and why not thinking he was unfairly convicted? After all, "defense attorneys would do anything to make the guilty party look innocent".

*** Keep in mind what exactly Edgeworth's job is. The people he prosecute are often put away for life or given the death penalty. Killing for sport is exactly what prosecutors are doing by going outside of the law to get a perfect win record, exactly what Edgeworth's former mentor and to a lesser extent Edgeworth himself was doing not so long ago.
