The rivalry between Guy Eldoon and Dr. Meraktis doesn't figure into [[spoiler: Meraktis stealing Eldoon's noodle cart for the sake of transporting [[NotQuiteDead what he thought was]] a corpse.]]]]
** The third case resembles ''Literature/TheNameOfTheRose'' in that the pattern followed by the killer appears to mirror something (the seven trumpets of Revelation in the book, the Guitar's Serenade lyrics here), and not only it turns out to be a coincidence after all, but when this theory is discussed openly, the killer decides to run with it, which complicates things further.

* CouldntFindAPen: In the third case, there is some smeared blood next to Romein [=LeTouse=]'s body. Contrary to the series's fashion, the victim did actually write it. However, [[spoiler:it's not the murderer's identity, but [=LeTouse=]'s own Interpol agent number]]. The fact it's smeared proves three things: one, that the one who killed [=LeTouse=] was not blind ([[spoiler:And Machi isn't, so he's not acquitted for that]]), that the murderer knew [[spoiler: the number]] could be linked to his motive ([[spoiler:[=LeTouse=] finding out the murderer was involved in Borginian cocoon smuggling]]) and that the murderer knew about [[spoiler: Interpol agent numbers, and this knowledge is mostly restricted to people who work with the police]] (Although this point is not brought up in the case).

* JerkAss: Zak Gramarye, while [[AffablyEvil very polite and friendly]], repeatedly behaves throughout the story in utterly incomprehensible ways that ruin (or risk ruining) the lives of nearly everyone around him. [[spoiler:He withholds evidence from Phoenix that would have allowed Phoenix to get him found not guilty with ease (and would have prevented Phoenix from being disbarred), has his daughter Trucy help him escape from the courtroom and then abandons her while he goes on the run for 7 years, and then comes back those 7 years later to frame Phoenix (the man who fought to defend him in court, ''is taking care of his daughter'', and moments ago helped him pass the rights to the Gramarye magic tricks to her) for cheating at cards and thereby destroy his livelihood and sole method of supporting himself and Zak's own daughter.]] He has... [[MemeticMutation quite the reputation for this]] [[http://forums.court-records.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=7846&sid=8f5d0a71354b125e1e8d685792ec150d among the fanbase]]

* HappyEndingOverride: The beginning of the game is quite the buzzkill for anyone who was happy about the triumphant note on which the original trilogy ended.

* HappyEndingOverride: The beginning of the game is quite the buzzkill for anyone who was happy about the triumphant note on which the original trilogy ended. To make matters worse, you get to play the specific case that overrides this happy ending -- the case that got Phoenix disbarred.

** Inverted in the first case, where Kristoph accuses Olga for the murder to keep himself from being suspect while also defending Phoenix.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspectExistenceFailure: The final case had the prime suspect of a poisoning case collapse while on the witness stand, having somehow ingested the same type of poison that killed the victim. This does not absolve her of guilt, as the prosecution claims that she attempted suicide out of remorse. As the suspect was still alive but in critical condition following the collapse, the prosecution insists that they finish the trial and come to a verdict before the suspect actually dies, since a verdict can't be assigned to a dead person.

* LastSecondEndingChoice: In a first for the series, there is a bad ending that is not an exact NonStandardGameOver: [[spoiler:playing as Jurist No. 6, the player is given the choice to declare the defendant guilty or not guilty. Choosing "Guilty" leads to the bad ending, while choosing "Not Guilty" leads to the good ending.]]
