* 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]].

* LongSongShortScene: The [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome truly amazing]] marching remix of the Blue Badger's theme is played exactly once, in a part of the intro to case three that will take a good minute less than the song to finish.

* 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.



* OnlyAFleshWound: [[spoiler:Lang gets shot in the leg partway through case five. This does not seem to impede him at all]].
* PassingTheTorch / TakeUpMySword: [[spoiler: Kay Faraday]] does this. [[spoiler: She finds her father's diary and believes him to be the Yatagarasu, taking on the title and mission of Stealing Truth for herself]]. She's...not quite as effective.

* 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.

** Deconstructed with [[spoiler: Dane Gustavia and Simon Keyes. Simon had no knowledge that Gustavia was his father and even hated him for killing Isaac Dover, whom he ''believed'' was his father. However, they both have the same habit of laughing maniacally when they believe there is no way their plans can fail, and Simon uses the ''exact same'' method of preserving the body that Gustavia had used: by freezing it, to throw off the time of death. This is lampshaded by Edgeworth while he's cornering Keyes for the crime]].

* WhatWouldXDo: Edgeworth does this twice. Although the "X" is never named, Edgeworth is obviously refering to Phoenix.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Quakes?]]: Edgeworth apparently fears earthquakes enough so that the turbulence on an airplane produces a close enough effect that it triggers his phobia and he passes out.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneUtility: In most cases, the Logic Chess segments are used to weasel info out of people who are being uncooperative by carefully guiding them to giving up information. In the final case, Edgeworth uses it [[spoiler:to try to shake Sebastian Debeste out of his his misery]]. Interestingly, despite being a more mundane use, it's actually the longest and most involved Logic Chess battle in the game (which shows how bad off he really is).
