** Apollo Justice's family is completely unknown. In the fourth case, [[spoiler: Thalassa Gramarye is revealed to be his mother, and he is actually Trucy's half-brother as she is Thalassa and her first husband's child. It is also revealed that Apollo's father died in a stage accident a year after Apollo's birth.]] ''Dual Destinies'' also implies that no one ever adopted Apollo after he was orphaned. [[spoiler:The scene that suggests this is when Apollo is trying to comfort his best friend, whose mother had recently died.]]
** Trucy never knew her mother, and her father, Zak Gramarye, [[spoiler: abandoned her at age 8 to save himself from a guilty verdict. She never sees him again (as the only time he resurfaces following his disappearance saw him be murdered the very same night), while]] Phoenix takes her in as his adoptive daughter.

** The trope is heavily subverted with Nagisa's parents, who shower her and each other with affection, but then again, [[spoiler:they did not pay much attention to her when she was a child due to their work and because of that Nagisa nearly died; one could say that it is a rare case of the trope evolving into a normal family situation]].

* The ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series adores this trope, especially when it can be used for a murder case. Phoenix Wright himself is one of the few main characters who ''doesn't'' seem to suffer from this, as his parents are never mentioned at all.
