The second game, ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice for All'', introduces von Karma's prodigal daughter, Franziska von Karma, out for revenge after the events of the first game. The game features a new element known as Psyche-Locks, where the player is able to break characters' metaphorical "locks" that enshroud secrets that they hide. The game also replaces the five-strike system for a virtual health bar where the amount of health lost varies based on the seriousness of the error the player makes. Plus, the player can present profiles in addition to evidence. Near the end, the game also highlights the nature of the relationship between Phoenix and Edgeworth. (No, [[HoYay not like that...]])

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 where the player character is Mia, and for a portion of the last case Miles Edgeworth steps into Phoenix's shoes.

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 UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance, with the exception of the fifth case of the first game, "Rise From the Ashes", which was created for the UsefulNotes/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.

* EvilOverlooker: There is a poster for this game with Godot as the overlooker. [[spoiler:Subverted in that while he is TheRival (as well as the FinalBoss), Dahlia Hawthorne is the BigBad (as well as an EvilerThanThou {{Sociopath}} in contrast to his AntiVillain status).]]



* EvilVersusEvil: Case 5 is driven via GambitPileup between [[spoiler:[[BigBad Dahlia Hawthorne]]]] and [[spoiler:[[TheRival Godot]]]].



** Case 5, being heavily involved with spirit mediums and channeling, throws a pretty good bit of foreshadowing at you. [[spoiler:After Dahlia (being channeled by Maya) switches places with her sister Iris, the person who Phoenix ''believes'' to be Iris starts using a lot of Dahlia's reaction poses and animations, albeit without the parasol. She also uses some of Maya's poses and her [[http://www.court-records.net/animation/dahlia-iris-heh(b).gif signature sneaky]] [[http://www.court-records.net/animation/maya-confident(b).gif smile]], further hinting that it was Maya channeling Dahlia and not Iris.]]

*** Furio Tigre's VillainousBreakdown destroys the courtroom lights and reveals Godot's visor-based RedEyesTakeWarning. [[spoiler:In Case 5, this is the first piece of evidence that puts him at the place and time of the respective murder -- despite it occurring in complete darkness.]]
** Case 4:
*** While narrating the FlashbackEpisode, Phoenix is in a dark room and illuminated via blue glow from his computer. [[spoiler:Case 5's killer, Godot, is revealed by turning the courtroom lights off and emphasizing the red glow from his visor.]]
*** After [[spoiler:Dahlia Hawthorne]]'s TheBadGuyWins, Diego Armando invokes quite a bit of SuppressedRage. [[spoiler:In Case
5, he -- as Godot now -- finally snaps and kills her in anger (but unfortunately, because it's now just her already-dead spirit being channeled by Mia and Maya's mother, the latter dies as well).]]
