* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Apollo Justice, at least for those who thought of him as a ReplacementScrappy in [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney the previous game]]. Hell, [[http://aominedayki.tumblr.com/post/59014214444/full-list-8-22-official-popularity-poll-for-ace in an official poll]], he's considered now to be ''the'' most popular ''Ace Attorney'' character!

** Then there's also [[BigBad The Phantom]], also known as [[spoiler: Bobby Fulbright]]. Some think he was one of the most terrifying opponents our lawyers have ever encountered, others think that he was a good concept that was executed terribly and there's also a third group that considers him a dull and uninteresting character prone to downright [[WhatAnIdiot moronic actions]], such as [[spoiler: bringing the lighter with Athena's[[note]]Actually Clay's.[[/note]] prints in the first place instead of letting Starbuck take the fall]].

** The villain of the third case is hardly sympathetic by the end. But [[spoiler: was he being serious when he offered to defend Juniper? Would he have used his willingness to forge and cheat to let her go free, or would he have sunk her to throw suspicion off himself?]]

* [[Awesome/VideoGameLevels Awesome: Video Game Levels]]: [[spoiler: Simon Blackquill]]'s testimony in Case 5. It manages to combine both Mood Matrix and regular contradiction finding into the one testimony, uses the Mood Matrix in creative ways that haven't been seen before [[spoiler: such as noise levels ''increasing'']] and accumulates in [[spoiler: an overload of ''every emotion at once'']]. It's also a very emotionally-involving moment for the characters.
** Turnabout Reclaimed, the DLC case, is considered by many to be ''Justice For All''[='s=] [[ScrappyLevel Turnabout Big Top]] done right, namely because it also features the interesting elements of that case, namely [[spoiler:the circumstances and nature of the real culprit]], but with much more likable other characters. Also, the notion of defending a killer whale in court [[spoiler:for the first half of the case]] is considered by many to be absolutely hilarious.

* CharacterRerailment: Of Phoenix, who acts more in line with his original series characterization than in [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney the previous game.]] He still keeps his [[TheMentor mentor]] and OlderAndWiser aspects, but he's considerably less manipulative.
** Also of the Judge, who's somewhat more reasonable and down-to-Earth again, while previous games where giving him quite a lot of {{Flanderization}} into more and more of a CloudCuckooLander.

* HoYayShipping: Apollo/Clay, for being best friends and Apollo really torned up [[spoiler: over his death.]]

** Also, Aura Blackquill's love for Metis Cykes is ''barely'' subtext. To elaborate a bit:
*** The robots they jointly created previously referred them both as [[HasTwoMommies Mama]].
*** Much of Aura's malice and obvious dislike towards Athena is because [[spoiler: she's genuinely convinced that Athena killed Metis]]. It's also somewhat implied that she saw Athena as competition for Metis. [[spoiler: And how her younger brother Simon is TakingTheHeat really doesn't help.

* MostWonderfulSound: The pulsing sound that happens when Apollo's bracelet reacts to someone being tense.

* PuritySue: ''Probably'' a parody of the archetype like how Franziska is one of the VillainSue, but Juniper Woods fits the style of the PuritySue in that she's [[BeautyEqualsGoodness beautiful]], [[IncorruptiblePurePureness sweet]], [[ShrinkingViolet soft-spoken]], [[TheIngenue delicate]], [[ProperLady ladylike]], [[YamatoNadeshiko proper]], [[IllGirl sic]][[IncurableCoughOfDeath kly]], and a {{woobie}}, [[NatureLover that lives in a forest]], [[RaisedByGrandparents was evidently raised by her sweet old grandmother]], and [[FriendToAllLivingThings everyone likes her almost immediately on meeting her]]. [[BreakTheCutie Despite being picked upon by the world around her]], [[ThePollyanna she continues to be ever the optimist]]. In a way, she's a lot like [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] or [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]].



** Speaking of the above, we have Solomon Starbuck, who had been driven to fear the thing he loves most, and [[spoiler: despite being completely innocent]] has given up all hope and is a sad wreck, at least, until [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming the protagonists bring him out of his funk]].

* TheScrappy: Florent L'Belle is easily the most disliked villain of the game, if not the entire series. He keeps zigzagging between ComplexityAddiction and StupidEvil, and his [[spoiler:efforts are AllForNothing anyway even if he does get away with everything.]]
