** It seems the developers focused more on writing the MythArc than in making player's existence harder while making ''Trials & Tribulations'', since there's relatively few new tricks here that weren't in JFA. While there's not a bad ending in this game, the two "one-chance" moments (one of which is a 11-statement, press-only testimony) are designed to throw off players and punish SaveScumming, since both the "right" and "wrong" conversations start with the same few lines of text, and the music doesn't tell you whether you got it right or not. Also, there's a couple of testimonies where you have to "mine" for information. In other words, if at the end of a press Phoenix thinks "I'd better come back to this later", that means you have to gather information by pressing other statements, ''then'' return to press the statement Phoenix pointed out.

In regards to overall challenge, "Turnabout Memories" ups the difficulty in comparison to the previous first cases, with an equally difficult witness and a cunning culprit who easily manipulate most of the courtroom in their hands.

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Phoenix and Iris with varying reactions. Maya goes in full ShipperOnDeck mode, [[spoiler: Edgeworth]] is mildly supportive but mostly treats it matter-of-factly, Laurice is [[GreenEyedMonster pissed]], Pearl is pissed [[DieForOurShip for different reason]].


Added DiffLines:

* KissingInATree: Maya teases Phoenix this way about Iris.

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 clients' 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}} 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.

* StatuteOfLimitations: Comes up a few times; it's mentioned to be three days long in case 1-3, and that it was actually ''shortened'' from the 15 year long statute for murder cases in 1-4, [[spoiler:which is why Hammond's murder was committed when it was, because von Karma wanted Edgeworth to be convicted for it, or at least for the DL-6 incident]]. A key point in 1-5 is that the evidence for a case two years prior was going to be "put to rest", officially closing an old case that its investigators felt wasn't complete.
** Kind of an [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Acceptable Break From Reality]] to be used for the RuleOfDrama. In the US, there has never been a Statute of Limitations for murder, while in Japan there has. However, between the time the games were made and 2016 (the time the first game takes place) Japan has officially removed all Statutes of Limitations for murders.



* ArcWords: "DL-6" throughout the first four cases; "SL-9" in the fifth case.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Ron [=DeLite=] hiding Kane Bullard's body in his safe only incriminates himself ''even more'', because he's one of the few people who knew how to open the safe. Not to mention the fact that he just moseyed on into a security company's headquarters wearing his Mask☆[=DeMasque=] outfit without even thinking ''once'' that someone might have been suspicious.
** Similarly, he got away from his first heist by ''hiding his Mask☆[=DeMasque=] costume in a trash can''.

The third game, ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations'', excitingly culminates the series by further exploring the background of Mia, Maya, and Phoenix by way of the mysterious coffee-guzzling prosecutor [[Theatre/WaitingForGodot Godot]]. The Kurain Channeling Technique, which was given less attention in the previous games, [[PlotTumor becomes the focus of the entire plot]] as the entire series ties together for an epic climax. The game features two flashback cases as Mia, and at one point, the player steps into Miles Edgeworth's shoes.

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Subverted with Mia Fey. When she's murdered at the beginning of the second case, it seems like a standard cliche - female character close to the protagonist is killed solely so that avenging her can serve as his heroic motivation. In fact, though, [[spoiler:Phoenix is unable to convict her killer on his own, and it's Mia who ''avenges herself from beyond the grave'']] in the most literal way possible. Furthermore, even in the third game, [[spoiler:it's still Mia, not Phoenix, who is Dahlia Hawthorne's ultimate nemesis]].
