** In 1-5, Edgeworth [[spoiler:looks positively shocked when he sees the other drawing on the other side of the evidence list ''that had been in his own possession up until then''. Did he really not notice that there was something on the back of that piece of paper?]]
** Phoenix decides that stealing is bad and [[spoiler:refuses to search the Ringmaster's coat in 2-3, which would have turned up a clue much sooner and saved everyone quite a bit of time.]]

* BrattyHalfPint: Cody HackinsHackins.

* CreativeClosingCredits: The ending of Case 5. Fingerprint dust is automatically applied and blown away to reveal the names, and during each character's part of the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, said dust can be applied and blown off manually to reveal their picture. The credits end with one final piece of "evidence" that needs examining; the book that Lana gave Ema at the end of the case, inside of which is [[spoiler:a photo of the two sisters when they were younger]].

* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: Case 1-3 relies on the fact that no one could get past the fallen statue blocking Studio 2, despite the fact that there's nothing preventing anyone from walking through the woods around it (and the camera watching the path) or climbing over it. However, [[BrattyHalfPint Cody Hackins]] wanders through the woods just fine.

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}} [[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.
