* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Some felt this way about Trixie. She acts incredibly smug, arrogant, and condescending throughout the entire series, has no qualms about trying to get Rainbow Dash wrongly prosecuted simply for revenge on Twilight, and repeatedly prioritizes revenge over the truth. She gets a CryForTheDevil in the form of [[spoiler:black Psyche-locks]], but these are [[InformedAttribute never significantly explained or elaborated on]]. Phoenix at times says she's doing certain things for noble purposes, but virtually every one of these instances is actually explainable by Trixie just serving her own selfish ends. She even savors [[spoiler:Rainbow Dash's guilty verdict]], rubbing it in Twilight's face and declaring that she felt on top of the world afterwards. She never even apologizes or shows remorse for what she did, not even when Phoenix [[spoiler:generously helps her out and saves her career]]. The only really noble thing she ever does, [[spoiler:write a secret, reluctant thank-you note to Phoenix]], came at no cost to herself whatsoever, and as far as she knew, would not be discovered by anypony.

* FreudWasRight:
** How else do you explain so many comments immediately going [[{{Rule34}} through the kinky route]] as soon as embarassing pictures of Rainbow Dash are pointed out? Something not helped by lines such as ''"I didn't knew you were into that kind of stuff, Rainbow Dash!"'' and by Maya and Edgeworth's comments after Phoenix goes back home.
--->'''Maya:''' Nick... Do you want to talk about this? It's alright, everyone has skeletons in their closet.\\
'''Edgeworth:''' This seems less of a skeleton and more so a... disturbing fetish...
** The dialogue that occurred as Phoenix and Pinkie broke into Ace's room raised quite a few eyebrows, if the comments are to judge. Not to mention the screen is completely black at the moment this is happening.
-->'''Phoenix:''' H-hey! We can't just-!\\
'''Pinkie:''' We just stick it in here aaaaaand… We're in!

* NightmareFuel:
** Phoenix manages to send Pinkie Pie into ''FanFic/{{Cupcakes}}'' mode by explaining about ladders and stepladders. Quite a take on the RunningGag.
** Trixie has [[spoiler: black psyche-locks. The first character in the ''Ace Attorney'' canon to have them? The nightmarishly evil Kristoph Gavin]].
*** Somewhat lessened in that [[spoiler: unlike Kristoph's locks, which were cold and dark, Trixie's were described to be filled with [[TearJerker sadness]] and [[JerkassWoobie despair]]; which are comparable to the ones of the next character in canon to have them: [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Athena Cykes]]]].
** [[spoiler:Ace Swift. Blackmailing the competition is one thing, but using a fellow racer's young sister's life to reach that end is nothing short of disgusting. And then there are his LastWords. The way he narrates the fabricated story of how Sonata will die is absolutely creepy, especially after raging at Sonata. It's just the absolute epitome of an AssholeVictim:]]
--->[[spoiler:'''Ace Swift:''' YOU'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, SONATA!]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Sonata:''' What are you doing!?]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Ace Swift:''' You met an unfortunate fate in the forest...]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Sonata:''' What!?]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Ace Swift:''' A ferocious beast got to you and ended your life!]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Sonata:''' No! Stop! Don't come any closer!]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Ace Swift:''' I then fell into a depressed state, and couldn't race anymore. No one will notice my performance drop, because I was forced to retire... Because you died! My dear Sonata, I'm so very sorry. But I am afraid I must ask you for one more thing... Farewell, Sonata...]]

*** And the hilarity goes even further when [[spoiler:ponies were willing to forgive a pony who did something ''[[SetWrongWhatOnceWentRight worse]]'' than what Sonata [[AccidentalMurder did]]]].

** In ''Part 3 - Phoenix'', Rainbow temporarily adopts Fluttershy's manestyle while mocking her.

** Rainbow Dash. Yeah, [[spoiler:taking her anger out on Fluttershy to the point of saying she hated her]] wasn't nice at all, but being set up for murder with the evidence piling against her and facing permanent exile from her friends and home makes it hard to not feel at least a little sorry for her too.

** Trixie calls Rainbow "Rainbow Trash" throughout. In Season 6 it's revealed that her actual EmbarrassingNickname "Rainbow Crash" came from crashing into a garbage can, and Pinkie even notes that she was lucky to not end up with Trixie's version.
