* In the second case, Godot hid crucial evidence from Gumshoe. Narratively, this was rule of drama, but it also makes sense for the character- [[spoiler:he used to be a defense attorney, so hes probably used to hiding evidence from detectives.]]

* We learn across the second and third games that the events of the DL-6 case basically ruined the Fey family, causing Misty to vanish, Mia to take up law instead of the family business, and setting in motion the entire drama around Morgan and her daughters. But we know that spirit channeling is real, so how did it end up going so wrong? Was it the failure of the prosecution to prove their case? No, because Yanni Yogi really didn't shoot Gregory Edgeworth. The truth was, he never saw who shot him. When channeled from beyond the grave, Gregory Edgeworth believed that only the two people in the elevator with him could have been the cause of his death...and rather than admit that he had passed out and didn't remember being shot, he named the one of those people who wasn't his only son. ''Gregory Edgeworth ruined the Fey family by lying to protect his son.''

* One that doesn't hit you on the first playthrough. Iris gets a chance to see Phoenix after years and after she's arrested Larry tells her that he's dying. When you know that she's in love with him such news are pretty devastating on it's own, now add the fact that he ran across the bridge because he suspected Maya might be in danger after finding Elise's body. Which he wouldn't have if Iris didn't tamper with it. Given Iris's GuiltComplex one can only imagine how hellish these few hours were for her before she found out that he'll be fine.

* Franziska says the word "Fool" a lot- to the point where it stops being grammatically correct. But that actually makes perfect sense- she grew up in Germany, likely speaking German. She probably doesn't know enough English to always know the right synonym for "fool", so she goes with the word she does know instead of trying to guess words she doesn't know.

* 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: hoenix 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 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 the same defense attorney.

* At the beginning of Rise From the Ashes, Phoenix struggles with being alone for the trial. At the end, Lana makes a deal out of telling Edgeworth about he wasn't alone in the courtroom- but, she could also be trying to indirectly tell Phoenix the same message that he and Edgeworth are able to work together, even if neither has an assistant or ally at the time.

* Bikini immediately assuming that Phoenix is looking for a girlfriend when he asks about Iris looks pretty weird, even with her naughtiness. But Iris said that she would never hide anything from her, meaning she probably knew about Iris and Phoenix. Obviously Bikini haven't met Phoenix before, but when a guy around Iris' age came to the temple and started asking about her she figured out who he is.

* When Bikini learned that Phoenix have met Morgan's daughter she assumes he already knows that Iris is another one. Of course that's what she thinks. She thinks that Morgan has two daughters, Iris and Dahlia, and if Phoenix have met Dahlia he'd know that Iris is the other one being her twin.

* 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.)
