** Max Galactica got framed for murder and had to endure the trials. And beforehand, he was already unpopular between the majority of the crews when all he wanted was for the others to also bask in the glory he received when winning the Grand Prix by his own efforts, so he was being framed by the people he was trying to improve.

** Becomes even worse once you realize that, considering the entire Iris/Dahlia situation, Phoenix ''wasn't'' just being a naive, lovestruck kid who was easily tricked by a manipulative bitch - the "Dollie" he knew was the loving girlfriend he thought she was that whole time. Imagine someone who's genuinely sweet, kind, and loving to you... suddenly turning cold, wicked, and being proven a murderer who only ever used you to cover up their crimes, and having no logical explanation as to why besides them truly being a psychopath the whole itme and not finding out until ''years'' later. It's a miracle poor Phoenix isn't totally crushed by the reveal.

Added DiffLines:

* Pretty much everything regarding [[ButtMonkey Gumshoe]] after the first trial segment. After his performance in court, where he outright wanted to co-operate with the defense in order to get Maggey acquitted... she angrily talks to Phoenix about how she hates him and never wants to see him again. After he's informed of this by Maya, he's said to run out of the restaurant and pound his head against the wall repeatedly while crying. ''Ouch.'' He even gives them a bento box he made for Maggey to eat in the detention center, and when presented with it, her reaction turns from happiness to rejection after hearing who it's from and gives it to Phoenix and Maya to eat. Even [[BigEater Maya]] is visibly disheartened at the prospect. And after hearing she didn't eat it? Gumshoe reveals he made an even ''bigger'' meal as back-up. Reminder that this is the character who we're regularly reminded is so poor he has to live off of instant noodles.
** And during the second trial segment, when Gumshoe [[BigDamnHeroes rushes into the courtroom to reveal]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome the victim's medicine bottle's newly found fingerprint traces]]? Phoenix tells him that they need evidence that proves Furio poisoned Elg's coffee, and that the new information is essentially useless. At this point, you probably expect him to get emotional and run out again. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness But this time]], he just says how his efforts are useless and says and leaves as soon as Maggey shows up after apologizing to her for screwing up, but seeing Gumshoe just admit, with a ''smile'' on his face, that he's "useless", after working so hard throughout the entirety of the case and making the very person he wants to save hate him... is just heartbreaking. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Thankfully, Phoenix ends up being able to use the information as the decisive evidence anyway, and specifically says how he "can't let Detective Gumshoe's hard work go to waste" while doing so, and Maya and Phoenix go out of their way to put in a good word for him when Maggey continues to berate him after her acquittal.]]

* ''Oldbag'' of all people actually gets one during the third investigation day, when you prove beyond all doubt that Hammer drugged Powers, stole the Steel Samurai costume and tried to kill Vasquez. She's visibly crushed at the realisation that her idol committed some serious misdeeds, and subsequently spills the beans on the secrets that she's been keeping under wraps at Vasquez's bequest. It's probably the only time in the series when she seems genuinely human, instead of cartoonishly curmudgeonly or a StalkerWithACrush.

* ''Oldbag'' of all people actually gets one during the third investigation day, when you prove beyond all doubt that Hammer drugged Powers, stole the Steel Samurai costume and tried to kill Vasquez. She's visibly crushed at the realisation initially gives out her usual hair-trigger temper as her first response, which slowly fades to a sad resignation as she comes to accept that her beloved idol had committed some serious misdeeds, and subsequently spills the beans on the secrets that she's been keeping under wraps at Vasquez's bequest. It's probably the only time in the series when she seems genuinely human, instead of cartoonishly curmudgeonly or a StalkerWithACrush.
--> '''Oldbag''': ...I see. Poor, poor Hammer. You did wrong, Hammer, rest your soul. Okay, you win. I'll talk. I'm tired, see...Tired of holding it all in.

* If you present Lana your attorney's badge when first seeing her at the beginning of the case, Phoenix comments on how he polishes his badge every day. She says, "In a few years, the gold plating will flake off. Then we'll see the real you. [...] Give it three years. Then we'll see what you have become."
