* One bothersome thing about ''JFA'' was the acquisition of the magatama -- Phoenix had always done perfectly fine without it in the first game, but it became a major gameplay element in the second. Given Edgeworth's "Logic" ability from ''AAI'' (and [[WMG/AceAttorney Mia's hypothetical ability]]), by comparison Phoenix doesn't have any natural ability for being a lawyer. This actually makes sense, since he changed career paths very suddenly, for a specific reason. (Apollo's ability was natural, but bolstered by his bracelet, so it's likely that he just found a good line of work to use his skill in.)

* A very minor one from ''Rise of the Ashes'', again. At one point in the trial the Judge asks Edgeworth if an old case being dug up again is relevant to the case at hand, and Edgeworth replies that yes, indeed, it does hare relevance. The Judge gives in quickly, and Phoenix remarks that that was surprisingly quick. Apparently he's forgotten that the exact same thing happened not even three months ago, during ''Turnabout Goodbyes'', involving the same judge, prosecutor and even

** Except it was [[spoiler: Atmey that stole the jewel, not Ron. Atmey never worked for Bullard's company.]]

* Edgeworth getting defensive of Cody in 1-3 makes a lot more sense when you consider that [[spoiler: he probably had to testify during the original DL-6 trial, and wouldn't be much older than Cody at the time.]]
* 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]].

** A meta explanation: [[spoiler: Case 4 is a deconstruction of the entire series and designed to shake Phoenix's core principles. If Engarde was sympathetic then it would ruin this message and mean that getting him a Not Guilty would almost seem like something that could be lived with. In order for the moral dilemma of letting Engarde go to save Maya or convict him and let Maya die to work, Engarde has to be a sociopathic monster that deserves to be found guilty.]]

\n* In Case 3-2, [[ButThouMust while it's purely aesthetic]], Phoenix can choose whether or not to defend Ron [=DeLite=] in court, indicating he's not entirely certain of his innocence. This is a very rare, if not unique, occurrence. [[spoiler:Ron is actually guilty of being Mask [=DeMasque=], so Phoenix's gut is somewhat going against him.]]
** In fact, [[spoiler:Phoenix was doubtful at one point last game too, though rather than being given a choice, Phoenix double-checked with the magatama. Again, turns out the client he did this for, Matt Engarde, was guilty.]]

** Actually, Phoenix said that. He yelled it at the end of Dahlia's testimony, though unless you notice the name in the dialogue box change (which you might not, since the last several were all Dahlia, and she remains onscreen), you'd easily think Dahlia said it.

** I believe the third game implied she does suffer a lot from the deaths of her family members but puts on a brave face for the sake of Pearl.
