** ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'' finally answers this point: [[spoiler: Apollo, Thalassa and her husband were on Khura'in during one of the latter's music exhibitions. However, a fire was started, which not only killed Apollo's father, but also ensued such chaos that Thalassa accidentally lost Apollo, and never found him before returning to the Troupe. Magnifi had nothing to do with it]].

** And even with all that in mind, Phoenix being cocky actually...''isn't'' that out of character. In the original trilogy, his internal monologue is ''incredibly'' sarcastic and derisive towards just about everyone he meets - not even Mia is immune to his sass at times! There are three reasons why his attitude doesn't come across as cocky in previous games. One, he's always, always the underdog, so when he does get to celebrate, it feels as if he's earned it. Two, as the underdog, he also has fewer opportunities to gloat - but make no mistake that he takes them when he gets them (remember the case in the first game where he calls himself "Sherlock Holmes II?"). And three, he's the perspective character, so his triumphant statements match up with the feelings of the player; but in ''Apollo Justice'', the player knows, going into the trial, that [[spoiler: Phoenix will make a mistake that will get him disbarred]].

** Also, his [[spoiler: first conviction would be for second-degree murder, while the poisoning would arguably be first-degree. Since the death penalty ''is'' tossed around in the Ace Attorney series, it's possible that a more serious conviction would change his sentence from prison to death]].

* "Hobo Phoenix" is to Wright what "Godot" was to Diego Armando. Both men are lovers of different drinks (Godot/Diego's coffee; Phoenix's grape juice) who were utterly ruined by complete {{Sociopath}}s (Godot/Diego by Dahlia Hawthorne; Phoenix by [[spoiler:Kristoph Gavin]]), spent roughly a half-decade in obscurity (Godot/Diego in a coma; Phoenix as a poker-player), started wearing special headgear (Godot/Diego's sight-aiding visor; Phoenix's [[spoiler:SpyCam]] hat), got fed up and decided to become vigilantes of sorts (Godot/Diego with his TheHeavy role in the 3-5; Phoenix with his sudden AntiHero methods in both [[spoiler:4-1]] and [[spoiler:4-4]]), and then finally found some eventual peace (Godot/Diego ultimately being a GracefulLoser; Phoenix ultimately deciding to become a [[spoiler:defense attorney again]]).

* At first glance, [[spoiler:Kristoph]]'s attempts to sabotage Apollo and Phoenix's case during "Turnabout Succession" just seem like an EvilIsPetty way of getting the last laugh after [[spoiler:his original conviction at the end of "Turnabout Trump"]]. However, if you think about it, [[spoiler:he]] still has plenty to lose pragmatically as well: [[spoiler:he essentially MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll thanks to both his many in-prison perks (such as his LuxuryPrisonSuite) and his mentioned connections (it's made clear that the legal community still respects him, albeit as a "good lawyer who simply snapped one day"), not to mention how it's revealed in more than one game that killers in this series don't always get death row (though multiple murders under your belt are almost assuredly a way to make yourself much more eligible), and a second conviction would probably ruin all of that for him.]]

to:

* Usually, the final case of an Ace Attorney game has a different prosecutor than the mid-cases at some point, so at first, it seemed odd that Klavier prosecuted Turnabout Succession. It actually makes sense, since usually, the final prosecutor is meant to be tied to the story, and with [[spoiler:Kristoph as the killer in the case, who would be better to be involved in the trial than his brother?]]
