** There's a horrifyingly sad FanFiction out there based on the alternate story of [[spoiler:Miles being killed by von Karma instead of Gregory, and the latter's overwhelming grief]].
*** Oh god I need to know this fanfic!!!

* So, we know that Edgeworth had [[spoiler: severe PTSD after DL-6]]. We know he's repressing the memory of everything that happened in the elevator, and that he doesn't fully recall it or understand it until [[spoiler: Phoenix presents enough evidence to explain what happened]]. Given that the magatama hasn't come into the games yet, but also considering the developments it receives in ''Apollo Justice'' and ''Dual Destinies'', this could mean that the last day of case 1-4 boils down to [[spoiler: breaking Edgeworth's Black Psych-Locks]].

* Shelley De Killer is so prolific that he has to [[spoiler: leave his business card at his murders to save the prosecution time on investigation. Edgeworth even says that there's an entire special investigation team dedicated to finding him. Maya is rescued at the end of the case, but the game implies that de Killer wasn't caught...meaning that he's probably still, er, [[UnusualEuphemism doing buisness]]]].

** It actually does make sense if they're looking at each other in certain cases - particularly on the last day of 2-4, where they're both trying to [[spoiler: deceive an ''assassin'' in order to make the trial last as long as possible]]. In that case, what once looked like a challenging glare turns into a conspiring look between them.

** Alternately, there's a chance that [[spoiler:she simply ''burned'' the wig afterwards, which makes sense when you realize that Phoenix does find some scraps of evidence near the incinerator... which is conveniently near the room where Ini/Mimi was "sleeping." Also, Mimi's natural hair color is lighter than Maya's, so it's likely that she did dye it red.]]

** [[spoiler:Edgeworth's sudden turn on Dee Vaquez]] makes more sense if you know about his fanboyism. Yes, it's later established that he'd help Phoenix save a defendant who really does seem to be innocent, but what better place to introduce that trait than [[spoiler:the end of the trial convicting the lead actor of his favorite series]]? The [[Anime/AceAttorney anime]] seems to give a nod to this one: Edgeworth is seen after the trial watching ''The Pink Princess'' in his office, sipping tea and seeming entirely at peace with himself.

** This is supported by the fact that at one point, before the reveal, he [[spoiler: grabs his shoulder when he briefly loses his composure and complains at the judge. It probably does hurt him.]]

** Another parallel between 2-4 and 1-3 is the polar oppositeness of [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] and Will Powers. The former is a BitchInSheepsClothing, while the latter is a NiceGuy with the FaceOfAThug.

* Case 3: Turnabout Big Top. It doesn't seem exactly plot relevant... until you realize that it fits in with the all of the other cases ''thematically''. While it may have little impact on the plot, all the characters in this "trial of errors" come across as completely sympathetic (maybe not ''likeable'', but certainly sympathetic). [[spoiler:''Especially'' the murderer]]. Quietly asking what justice is, this case is the ''perfect'' set-up to Case 2-4, where the concept of justice is fully explored.

* In case 2-2, Director Hotti (or rather the patient pretending to be him) says to Phoenix, in regards to Ini Miney, "That girl left here a long time ago." He means that in the sense of her being discharged from the hospital, but it's also {{foreshadowing}} that [[spoiler:Ini is actually dead, and "left [this world] a long time ago"]].
* "Eenie Meenie Miney Moe" is a children's rhyme, where you switch back and forth between things you're deciding between with each word you say. [[spoiler:Mimi Miney switched from her life to Ini's.]]
** Also, there's Ini and Mimi Miney, but no Moe... except [[spoiler:"Mo" is a shortened, albeit informal, way of saying "Morgan", who was Mimi's accomplice]].
** By committing murder, [[spoiler:Mimi proved she really is a ''meanie'']].

** It also turns out to mark him as being his father's son, since Gregory's sprites in ''Investigations 2'' have it as well.

* I've read [=YouTube=] comments saying that this game's Pursuit theme is unfitting, sounding more like you're under attack than coming out on top. Then I realized: a lot of people you accuse in this game are sympathetic [[spoiler:Ini/Mimi Miney, Acro, and Adrian Andrews]], so the music is actually quite fitting if you think of ''them'' as being under attack.
