* UnintentionallySympathetic: True, Patricia Roland ultimately brought the [[spoiler:combined]] threat of Sirhan Dogen [[spoiler:and Simon Keyes]] upon herself after her past misdeeds, but her motive (She killed Horace Knightley to eliminate a potential threat to her and her family's safety, as well as to frame Dogen so he would have to be transferred to a maximum-security prison and no longer have the ability to be a threat.) is difficult to fault, given its self-defensive and MamaBear-ish nature.

* LoveToHate: [[spoiler: Simon Keys]], the BigBad of the second game, is such a scheming little bastard that he's overly entertaining and satisfying to take down. He's also a rare example that overlaps with JerkassWoobie.

* DisappointingLastLevel: Compared to the other games in series, the final case is unusually long. It has far more chapters than any other case in the series. Just when you think it's finally over, it's not. Some fans have even criticized the finale for dragging out too long, and making the ending more tedious than satisfying, compared to the other games which all had huge final boss takedowns.

* DisappointingLastLevel: Compared to the other games in series, Most fans criticize "Turnabout Ablaze" for dragging out the final case is unusually long. It has far more chapters than any other case in the series. Just confrontation [[MarathonBoss way too long]]. That entire interrogation alone takes at least about two hours. And just when you think it's finally over, it's not. Some fans have even criticized the finale for dragging out too long, and making This eventually makes the ending more tedious than satisfying, compared to the other games which all had huge much better climaxes. And even without taking in account the final boss takedowns.boss, some fans argue this finale simply doesn't get you invested like the others do.



* EvenBetterSequel: ''Gyakuten Kenji 2'' aimed to be bigger and more dramatic than the original, evident by the "final case" feel that the first case of the game was shooting for.

* MagnificentBastard: The BigBad of the second game certainly qualifies. He manipulates everyone and everything including ''Edgeworth'' to achieve his goal of revenge on targets that include [[spoiler: former chief prosecutor and a ''president''(well, his body double but still)]] and succeeds at taking down all of them, while covering tracks so well that in the end [[spoiler: he's just one piece of evidence away from becoming KarmaHoudini]]. All while maintaining [[TheDgWasTheMastermind innocent facade the whole time]].

* HilariousInHindsight: Edgeworth's knowledgeable defense of ''The Steel Samurai'' sounds a lot like the way adult fans of a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic certain other kids' show]] (which debuted in 2010, a year after this game) justify their love. There's something priceless about the realization that, in his world, Miles Edgeworth is essentially a brony.
-->'''Edgeworth''': It's a show geared towards kids... however its high production values and riveting plot draws in a number of adults as well.
