*Gumshoe's last case with Phoenix ended with his disbarrment. Poor guy never could have thought things would have turned out this way.

* The last scene of Apollo Justice, where [[spoiler:Klavier, having realized what his brother's done and the part he himself played, looks up towards the ceiling, clearly on the verge of tears, and takes that final step to convict Kristoph of murder once and for all.]] When you consider that just a few months ago, [[spoiler:Klavier also helped sentence his friend and band member to death]], the entire game really was just a KickTheDog experience for the poor guy, especially since he's certainly the friendliest and least corrupt prosecutor in the series.

** Of course, this could just be a case of Phoenix trolling Apollo.

* In the original trilogy, Phoenix's attorney's badge was his most prized possession. Presenting it to people (which was almost always an option) normally resulted in a humorous dialogue, typically about how much Nick loves his badge and shows it off. Present Apollo's attorney's badge to Phoenix. ''He doesn't fucking recognise it.''

** Really, the whole idea of [[spoiler: Phoenix losing his badge is completely heartbreaking. After all he did, all the people he saved and all the trouble he went through, he lost it all and had to see how many of his old friends left him and went on with their lives, even becoming very successful, while he rot in a shady job that, to top it all off, it's a reminder of his last case (playing cards) and had to exercise as a piano player with no talent, all to raise a little girl he never asked for and that, in all fairness, helped the guy who caused his disbarrment escape.]] It kind of makes you feel all the effort you put in the previous games feel in vain.

* It's sort of a Fridge Sadness one, but Apollo's life before becoming an attorney was probably this -- [[spoiler:his father died when he was very young, and his mother apparently abandoned him when she returned to Troupe Gramarye, meaning he had no family at all for all but the first few months of his life. His half-sister Trucy [[TheWoobie went through a lot herself]], but at least she had parents for a while and ended up with Nick in the end; we have ''no idea'' who raised Apollo! The closest thing he had to a father figure was ''Kristoph Gavin'', and the poor guy has to see his entire perception of his ''own freaking mentor'' shatter to pieces right in front of his eyes throughout the game.]]

** [[spoiler:''Dual Destinies'' does show that Maya, Pearl, and Edgeworth kept in touch with Phoenix throughout that time. Which is a very happy TearJerker, since we find out his friends stuck with him the whole time.]]

* The part where you [[spoiler:play as Phoenix in his last trial, and the game forces you to present evidence that [[ForegoneConclusion you know will get him disbarred]] because [[DramaticIrony he doesn't know it's a forgery]]]]. It makes a person feel like quite the villain. In fact, anything concerning [[spoiler: Phoenix losing his badge]] is saddening, but special mention has to go to one of the best tragicomic lines in the game, which you get when you examine a doll doing the classic objecting pose and [[spoiler: Phoenix bellows his old CatchPhrase one more time, before saying 'it's been seven years! I need to stop torturing myself with these things! I know, I'll just pretend it's saying something else. 'Why yes sir, the post office is right over that way.'']] It's difficult to know whether that should be met with laughter or tears.
