* AssholeVictim: Extremely common throughout the entire series. In game one: [[spoiler:Jack Hammer tried to murder somebody, while Robert Hammond was a selfish attorney who didn't care about his clients.]] In game two, [[spoiler: Turner Grey is an uncaring boss who caused one of his workers to die from falling asleep at the wheel and Juan Corrida tries to ruin an "innocent" man's career.]] In game three, [[spoiler: Kane Bullard used his security agency to blackmail customers, and Glen Elg meets this halfway in that, while he's not an asshole, the characters have no problem calling him a loser after his death.]] If you don't count [[spoiler: Glen Elg]], that's still 6 out of 14 murders in the first three games.

Added DiffLines:

* SpyCam: The last case has a large stuffed bear with a camera in its nose found at the case's crime scene. It would become important evidence for a murder conviction.

** In 2-4, [[spoiler:Adrian Andrews]] applies too. Not to mention Maya Fey, who gets accused of mrder [[spoiler:once per game]], along with [[spoiler:getting kidnapped in 2-4]], and many other things throughout the series. Finally, we learn in the third game that [[spoiler:Mia Fey's first trial ends in an innocent man committing suicide on the stand and having the real killer go free. She even later gets murdered by Redd White]]. It seems like all the [[spoiler:Feys]] have horrible luck.

The eponymous first game of the series chronicles Phoenix's first cases, [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler Mia's death]], and Phoenix's first battles with [[TheRival prosecutor Miles Edgeworth]] and his [[AmoralAttorney abhorrent tactics]], culminating in a fierce face-off with Edgeworth's mentor, the legendary Manfred von Karma. The aforementioned extra case, ''Rise From The Ashes'', ties the plot with the second series together. In 2010 it gained a U.S. [[IOSGames iPhone]] [[http://goo.gl/HnMRW port]]. A [[Film/AceAttorney live action movie]] directed by TakashiMiike was released in theaters in Japan in February 2012 based mainly on the events of the second and fourth cases of the game. An [[Anime/AceAttorney anime adaptation]] began on April 2, 2016 that focuses on the first two games of the series.

The first three games in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series star Phoenix Wright, a sympathetic, easily flustered Franchise/PerryMason-type with AnimeHair, who digs deeper into the mysteries surrounding his client's cases (which always seem to involve [[AlwaysMurder murder]]), butts heads with a host of [[OnlySaneMan eccentric characters]], discovers clues and evidence the police miss, and uses those clues in court to force the truth out of witnesses and discover the true perpetrators. He fights alongside his {{late|ArrivalSpoiler}} [[TheObiWan mentor]], Mia Fey, and her GenkiGirl sister Maya Fey. They were originally developed for the GameBoyAdvance, with the exception of the fifth case of the first game, "Rise From the Ashes", which was exclusive to the NintendoDS remake, known as ''Gyakuten Saiban: Yomigaeru Gyakuten'' (''Turnabout Trials: The Revived Turnabout'') in Japan. The game plays out in a VisualNovel style through the perspective of Phoenix Wright during investigation sessions, where the player can talk to other characters, present evidence, and find clues to build up their case. Usually the next day, court begins, where the player cross-examines witnesses to find contradictions, [[ThePerryMasonMethod eventually forcing the real culprit to confess.]] The bonus 5th case of the first game took advantage of the touch-screen and mic on the DS allowing for more in-depth investigations on evidence, which is used in later, DS-only titles in the series.

Phoenix pretends that he doesn't know anything (eventually, Edgeworth learns about situation and plays along with Phoenix during the trial) in order to buy time and wait until Gumshoe finds and rescues poor Maya, so that Matt can get the guilty verdict he deserves]].
