--> '''Franziska''': I don't care! You'd just better make sure that you never find yourself standing there.

* BaitAndSwitchBoss: The killer from case 4 [[spoiler:turns up in the final case, and it looks like they're going to be the head of the criminal syndicate, right?]] Nope, it's either [[spoiler:the shifty looking Colias Palaeno]] or [[spoiler:the seemingly harmless (but not) Quercus Alba;]] both of which had suspicious names in the Japanese version. (Damian and Carnage, respectively). While both of these characters are awesome, a section of the fans would have preferred [[spoiler: Calisto Yew]] to have been the BigBad.

** Completely averted with Colias Palaeno. When Edgeworth asks if he can investigate, Palaeno says to go right ahead. No questions, no testimony, nothing.
** Gumshoe leaves out details from his testimony because he doesn't want it to get out that [[spoiler:he essentially bought a swiss roll with Kay, thus causing her to break her promise not to take anything from strangers, even though her father, the one he was trying to keep this from, was already dead]].

obstructionism, nothing worse than a polite request that you not touch the Primidux Statue (since it's a national treasure).
** Gumshoe leaves out details from his testimony and brings suspicion on himself as a result because he doesn't want it to get out that [[spoiler:he essentially bought a swiss roll with Kay, thus causing her to break her promise not to take anything from strangers, even though her father, the one he was trying to keep this from, was already dead]].

** [[spoiler:Justine Courtney]] undertakes a number of unethical and even illegal actions, and never receives any comeuppance. While part of it deals with her job on the P.I.C, it comes to a head in the 4th case, when she accepts a confession from [[spoiler:Kay, who is amnesic at the time.]] She also rejects evidence that places reasonable suspicion on her as the killer, which would have removed her from any authority on the case, [[spoiler:as it eventually does in the fifth case when she is the initial prime suspect]]. [[spoiler:She's not the killer in either case, but her excuse for not murdering Jill Crane is "I'm a judge, so I couldn't do it."]] She also introduces a piece of fabricated evidence, which got Phoenix disbarred. When coupled with the fact that she had the opportunity to commit the murder, any reasonable person could conclude she was trying to throw off the police. But she gets away with it scot-free.

* NostalgiaLevel: A minor (though important plot-wise) one in the form of Grand Tower's 51st floor. It turns out to be a single room full of evidence [[spoiler:sold for the black market auction on the 50th floor]]. The evidence ranges from the real Alif Red statue from I-2 to Redd White's office desk from way back in 1-2.

* LittleGirlsKickShins: Kay in Case 4. It ''looks'' like she hits Edgeworth in the back of the knee, but the lack of detail in the sprites and the severity of his reaction could mean it was actually a GroinAttack...

* MusicalSpoiler: Whenever you hear [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Confrontation: Presto]] playing, you know the person you're cross-examining is the killer. PlayedWith in the sequel though, where Presto is often used for characters uninvolved with the murder as a major [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle fake-out]]. Examples include [[spoiler: Jay Elbird in Case 2, and John in Case 5]].

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Quercus Alba]]'s trial. We don't see it (because it would just be a rehash of everything that's gone before), but several supporting characters show up just to watch Edgeworth tear the defendant a new one, and he doesn't disappoint.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The Yatagarasu's mantra is to "steal the truth", which for [[LegacyCharacter the original Yatagarasu]] meant ''actually stealing'' as a means to [[NobleThief blow the whistle on corruption]]. Meanwhile, the new Yatagarasu, Kay Faraday, while constantly calling herself a Great Thief, apparently interprets "steal the truth" a little more literally and never actually steals anything beyond abstract concepts like [[SpotlightStealingSquad character focus]] and [[BorrowedCatchphrase lines]]. This becomes HilariousInHindsight when you realise Phoenix Wright's supposedly non-thief sidekick Maya regularly expressed an [[KleptomaniacHero interest in "acquiring" items from crime scenes]], whereas Kay does not.
