* FanonDiscontinuity: A segment of the fanbase has decided that [[spoiler:Robin Newman is actually a trans girl, rather than a crossdressing cis girl]], on the grounds that [[spoiler:her arc makes more sense as a trans girl's ComingOutStory]].

* CompleteMonster: The internationally-hired [[PsychoForHire mercenary spy]] known only as [[AllLowercaseLetters the phantom]] is a nasty piece of work, and is the second figure, after [[spoiler:Kristoph Gavin]], who ushered in "The Dark Age Of The Law." His plan begins when he murders the cheerful [[spoiler:Bobby Fulbright to assume his identity and become Simon Blackquill's handler]]. Before that, he killed Athena Cykes's mother and pretended to be her, and using a Noh mask hanging from her wall, as well as her jacket, he [[FrameUp fooled the helper robots]] into thinking Athena--then an 11-year-old child--had killed and disassembled her mother. By doing so, he gets the noble Prosecutor Blackquill convicted and proceeds to sabotage the HAT-1 rocket, causing the astronaut to barely escape with his life. After that was all done, some 7 years later, he sent a warning to the director Yuri Cosmos, and when that was ignored, bombed the space station. Afterwards he killed [[spoiler:Apollo's best friend, Clay Terran]], who tried to fight back, and threatened to expose his identity, framed the other astronaut and big brother figure to Apollo and Clay for the crime, and when that failed, bombed the courtroom to destroy a piece of evidence, nearly causing the deaths of hundreds, then framing Athena for this. He was also able to frame Athena's best friend, [[IllGirl Juniper Woods]], for the courtroom bombing. Had it not been for Athena's moon rock earring being able to be compared with the destroyed moon rock, he would have gotten away with everything. Be that as it may, he also doesn't feel emotions the way a normal person does, and as such, is a chillingly realistic example of [[TheSociopath a sociopath]] in a video game.

* TheScrappy: Florent L'Belle is easily the most disliked villain of the game, if not the series -- courtesy of his unnecessary ComplexityAddiction and sheer StupidEvil. [[spoiler:And his MeaninglessVillainVictory even if you somehow lose only ruins what little credibility he has left as a villain.]]

** The "[[{{Youkai}} Yokai]] craze" bringing tourism to Nine-Tails Vale is this in light of ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'''s popularity. The first game came out the same month as ''Dual Destinies'' in Japan.

* PlayerPunch: Oh boy, the last two cases was not kind to a lot of people. [[spoiler: First of all, Apollo decided to leave the office to work by himself in order to find out who really killed his friend. Second of all, Athena managed to be accused of murdering Clay after the BigBad made everybody believe her "fingerprints" were found on the lighter. Third of all, Trucy got kidnapped by Aura Blackwell as an attempt to redo Simon's trial. Fourth of all, Athena was accused of murdering her mother and almost everybody including Athena believed that. Fifth of all, Bobby Fulbright ended up being DeadAllAlong as the BigBad killed him to do a DeadPersonImpersonation on him.]]

** In Turnabout Reclaimed, the "Special Episode", [[spoiler: Marlon Rimes's "flip-flop" testimony. It's far enough from English that it's basically unintelligible [[note]]To elaborate, it's LeetLingo, [[TalkLikeAPirate pirate speak]] and [[JiveTurkey over-the-top rapping lingo]] blended together into a mix that's nigh unreadable[[/note]], it suffers from all-caps syndrome, and it takes two or three steps to break.]] While it's extremely straightforward to work out which piece of evidence to present, it's borderline impossible to work out which ''statement'' to present it on. [[spoiler:The trick is to press and see what he talks about during that pressing, not what he raps about in the main statement. It's the first statement that you need to present it on]].
** While not as bad, Means's first testimony in Case 3 can be pretty annoying, since the correct statement to present evidence, is a blink and you'll miss it one.
** [[spoiler: Simon's]] testimony during the final case. Which requires you to use both the Mood Matrix and present evidence, something that hasn't been done together before this point. You have to be careful though: mess up too many times, [[spoiler:and Blackquill will not only get convicted, [[ItsAWonderfulFailure but he will die]] (you heard right: '''''die!''''') [[ItsAWonderfulFailure at the hands of the state]]!]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: [[spoiler:Aura Blackquill]] in one EarnYourBadEnding. [[spoiler:Sure, it sucks that her innocent brother gets executed after all; but given the heavy implication that she proceeds to invoke RevengeByProxy upon her equally innocent hostages (including Trucy, the adopted daughter of the guy fighting tooth-and-nail to save said brother), quite a few fans lost any remaining sympathy for her.]]

** Sasha constantly saying that Orla, a whale, would never hurt or kill anybody is a bit hard to hear if you've seen ''Film/{{Blackfish}}''.
*** On that note, there's also this line, which also becomes harsher if you've seen the movie:
