** [[spoiler:Von Karma]] crossed it when he [[spoiler:murdered Gregory Edgeworth.]] ** [[spoiler:Gant]] was genuinely an honest cop until [[spoiler: he murdered Neil Marshall and frames two people for it: Joe Darke to get him convicted once and for all, and fourteen-year-old Ema Skye to make her sister Lana one of his pawns]].

He then proceeded to [[spoiler:[[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown kick Gregory while he was down/dead]] by raising his son to become his complete antithesis, then framing said son for killing him, all just to get back at the ''entire Edgeworth bloodline'' for one of them causing von Karma to get his [[DisproportionateRetribution only penalty in decades]].]] ** [[spoiler:Gant]] was genuinely an honest cop until [[spoiler: he murdered Neil Marshall and frames two people for it: Joe Darke to get him convicted once and for all, and fourteen-year-old Ema Skye to make her sister Lana one of his pawns]]. Interestingly, he's also a rare case that seems to return from the Horizon a bit when he [[spoiler:expresses regret over his actions, accepts his punishment, and wishes everyone the best of luck in maintaining the system after he's gone.]]

** [[spoiler:Redd White]] has knowingly ruined countless people's lives (even driving more than a few to suicide) with his blackmail business, kills Mia when she tries to get enough evidence on him, and then frames Maya and Phoenix -- Mia's sister and subordinate, respectively -- for the murder. Complete with EvilGloating pretty much the whole time.

to:
** Even before the above moment in "Turnabout Goodbyes", Phoenix openly confronts CorruptCorporateExecutive [[spoiler:Redd White]] and MafiaPrincess [[spoiler:Dee Vasquez]], two people well-known for their ruthlessness and ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections advantages. [[TooDumbToLive And in their own private quarters, no less]].

* TakeThatScrappy: For the portion of fans who dislike Franziska for her seemingly constant and unpunished JerkAss moments, [[spoiler:Shelly de Killer shooting her in the shoulder, preventing her from prosecuting for the remainder of the game, and causing her to be replaced by the more levelheaded Edgeworth]] can come across as refreshing.

* DudeNotFunny: Franziska whipping Phoenix in 3-5 -- i.e., a recently discharged hospital patient who nearly drowned to death and who still has a cold.

Added DiffLines:
*** [[spoiler:Even more so when he actually does forge evidence afterward to catch the one responsible (and implicitly for {{Revenge}} as well, given his new KnightInSourArmor attitude after losing said badge).]]

* LoveItOrHateIt: Case 2-3 (Turnabout Big Top). While a ''lot'' of fans consider it to be the worst case in the entire series, it does have a few defenders, largely because of [[spoiler:Acro]] being a very atypical "villain" for the series and being one of the most emotional cases in the franchise, and also for it being the only case in the game in which Maya (who is otherwise DemotedToExtra) has a prominent role throughout. A lot of the enjoyment also hinges upon whether or not you find the circus characters (aside from {{EnsembleDarkhorse}}s Acro and Regina) amusing or not (most notably Moe the clown).

Duplicate entry in wrong game section.
** Franziska's whip. You'll come to loathe those lashes as much as Phoenix, Maya, and Your Honor do.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Penny is one of the most popular one-shots in the series due to her {{Adorkable}} nature. She was brought back for ''Investigations'' because of this.

** Also from the third case is Regina; between her appearance, personality, and role as the heart of the story, most fans will agree that it's nearly impossible not to like her. When the Berry Big Circus returned in the second ''Investigations'' game, Regina was the only character from 2-3 (unless you count Money) to return.
