*** Became HilariousInHindsight when in Trials & Tribulations, Edgeworth temporarily stood in for Phoenix when he was ill. In turn, more on the HarsherInHindsight part, Phoenix [[spoiler: was in a Prosecution-like role against Apollo Justice in a civil trial in Spirit of Justice as he was forced to defend Paul Atishon because if he didn't, bad things will happen to Maya who was kidnapped]].

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Canonically, the trilogy takes place from 2016 to 2019 (as proven by the date of the DL-6 Incident). However, the [[TechnologyMarchesOn technology featured in them]] matches up with the tech that was around in the early 2000s, the time frame when the games were made. VHS tapes, black-and-white photos, and old cellphones are still in use[[note]](negated slightly by the fact that in the real world, old-style cellphones actually ''are'' experiencing a revival in popularity, thanks to some people finding smartphones needlessly complex, and preferring the longer battery life of simpler phones)[[/note]], and digital cameras are still a new thing.

*** ''Justice For All'' was planned to have five cases, but the last had to be scrapped because of lack of memory. It was later reused as the third case in ''Trials and Tribulations''. The third game also had many things cut for memory reasons, including a design for a much-younger Gumshoe in the first trial and Oldbag showing up (there was just enough room for a cameo in the credits, and they were still unable to put her in a lei, which they wanted to do to suggest she'd been in Hawaii).

*** Maya originally being planned to be a lawyer-in-training under Phoenix. In [[http://www.capcom-unity.com/zeroobjections/blog/2014/09/12/the-early-days-of-ace-attorney a different blog post]], it was mentioned that Phoenix met her and Mia under ''very'' different circumstances, that Turnabout Sisters would have been the first trial of the game (it was bumped to second as it was felt it was too big to be a lead-in), and Phoenix originally would have been a detective who was arrested for murder after he walked into his office to find a corpse.[[note]]Which actually happened to Edgeworth [[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth much later on]].[[/note]] He then would have taken up his own defense because of how incompetent his own defense attorney (who became Winston Payne) was.

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: In some of his old developer blogs, Shu Takumi mentioned how he sometimes got stuck figuring out a way to resolve a case's mystery, only to have an EurekaMoment and figure out a solution. Examples of this are [[spoiler:Gourdy being Larry's air tank in 1-4]] and [[spoiler:Mia telling Maya to lock herself in a cavern and channel Dahlia Hawthorne in order to trap her]].

*** Edgeworth was originally going to the the main prosecutor for JFA, until the development team caught wind of Edgeworth's [[JerkassDissonance surprise]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse popularity]]. Feeling that having the "genius" prosecutor lose every case against Phoenix wouldn't be adequate, Shu Takumi created Franziska von Karma as the game's main rival and saved Edgeworth for the last case.

Thus starting the trend of a new rival prosecutor for every game.
*** Both Fey sisters were supposed to be alive, but Takumi was told he couldn't have both due to cast size. Solution? Have the elder sister killed and turn the younger into a spirit medium who can channel her sister.
