** It definitely becomes clear in Case 4, where he is always at Kay's side, always [[PapaWolf defending her]], always [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre believing in her]] (even though she doesn't believe in herself), while Blaise Debeste misses no opportunity to insult his own son and cut him down. And the contrast only becomes stronger once you learn that Sebastian isn't so much a SmugSnake getting his comeuppance as a WellDoneSonGuy who doesn't realize how pathetic he looks in the eyes of others -- and that Blaise is an utter bastard.

* In both games, whenever Phoenix is referenced it's usually Edgeworth reflecting on or referring to ways in which Phoenix has changed him.

** Later he refers to Phoenix less obliquely as "A certain ''friend''". Phoenix might not appear in these games, but let it not be said he doesn't have a presence of a different kind.
* Any of the odd moments where Edgeworth actually acknowledges that Larry is, in fact, his friend. Heartwarming, because he seems even more annoyed with Larry than anyone else, but like Phoenix, seems to look after him as if he were Larry's older brother.

brother.



* An odd example, but many of young!Edgeworth and young!Franziska's interactions in Turnabout Reminiscence. Many of them verge on CrowningMomentOfFunny, but it's also sweet to see how these two overly serious, strictly-raised geniuses can act like childish siblings. It's also apparent how they do care for each other, even if they have trouble showing it. Some scenes of note are Edgeworth saying that maybe one day they can fight crime together as two equal prosecutors, and when Edgeworth briefly wishes he had the power to give the decorated knife to Franziska as a gift, since she seemed almost entranced by its detailed carvings.
** It all culminates when [[spoiler: they're both desperate for the other's safety when Calisto Yew whips out a gun.]]
* In the first Investigations game, during the flashback to Edgeworth's first properly meeting Kay, the dialogue gets increasingly focused on the Promise Book that Kay and her father made and how much Mr. Faraday cared for Kay. It's made increasingly heartwarming because Gumshoe nearly got himself arrested on a double murder charge to cover up Kay breaking one of her promises.

** I choose to believe this is canon. Gregory's spirit wasn't helplessly watching tragedy unfold for fifteen years: he went to Phoenix and gave him the motivation to help Miles find his way again ''and'' avenge his own death while he was at it. Mia Fey may even have seen his spirit watching over Phoenix but chose to keep quiet about it.

* Surprisingly enough, one of the possible dialogues for presenting wrong evidence to the BigBad in the second game contains one of these. Tateyuki tells Edgeworth he believes in him and encourages him not to give up. It's actually very empowering for the player given [[TheComputerShallTauntYou what usually happens in wrong evidence dialogues.]]

* There's a parent-and-child theme running through Investigations 2, showing many varieties of these relationships, from [[AbusiveParent unhealthy]] to [[GoodParents very healthy]] to families of choice. Seeing this theme culminate in [[spoiler: Edgeworth taking on a borderline PapaWolf role with Kay in case 4, a nearly fatherly tone in his support of Sebastian when he calms him down and pulls him out of the DespairEventHorizon in case 5, and the way he actually communicates fine with Simon despite claiming to be no good with kids]] is very rewarding and might cause the shed of ManlyTears. [[spoiler: His father would be proud of him.]]

* This is minor, but in case 4, Gumshoe mentions how he got in trouble because, after becoming a detective, he accidentally ended up reporting to his old post out of habit. Young Franziska - instead of taking the opportunity to hit him or call him a fool or something - casually mentions that such a thing kept happening to her every year in elementary school. Compared to what she's typically like, this moment is unusually mellow.
