Trivia: Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
  • Expy: In GK1, we have a crime syndicate that does practically every evil activity in the book being investigated by Interpol. Sounds a lot like Shadaloo.
  • Fan Nickname: The Fan Translation of Gyakuten Kenji 2 localizes the characters' names as follows:
    • Teikun Ou = Di-Jun Huang
    • Gai Tojiro = Ethan Rooke
    • Manosuke Naitou = Horace Knightley
    • Mikiko Hayami = Nicole Swift
    • Hakari Mikagami = Justine Courtney
    • Yumihiko Ichiyanagi = Sebastian Debeste
    • Tateyuki Shigaraki = Raymond "Ray" Shields
    • Souta Sarushiro = Simon Keyes
    • Shuuji Orinaka = Jay Elbird
    • Marie Miwa = Patricia Roland
    • Ryouken Houinbo = Sirhan Dogen
    • Issei Tenkai = Jeff Master
    • Tsukasa Oyashiki = Katherine Hall

    • Ryuji Kamei = Jack Cameron
    • Ami Aizawa = Amy Marsh
  • Also falls under Fan Nickname: The Let's Translate on YouTube, also done by a fan of the series and one who worked on the Fan Translation team, uses the following localized names:
    • Teikun Ou = Di-Jun Wang
    • Gai Tojiro = Victor Rook
    • Manosuke Naitou = Horace Knight
    • Mikiko Hayami = Clara Harkens
    • Hakari Mikigami = Angela von Jure
    • Yumihiko Ichiyanagi = Raymond Furst
    • Tateyuki Shigaraki = Atticus Stalwart
    • Souta Sarushiro = Simeon Traill
    • Shuuji Orinaka = Louis Cage
    • Marie Miwa = Jennifer Reese
    • Ryouken Houinbo = Canis Fang
    • Issei Tenkai = Lee Tone
    • Tsukasa Oyashiki = Aria Manor
    • Isaku Hyoudou = Bill Rime
    • Paul Holic = Philippe Holic
    • Delicy Scone = Delicy Scones
    • Yutaka Kazami = Gus Takovski
    • Wataru Shirase = Han Dover
    • Touko Mutou = Sugar Pill
    • Otome Itami = Virginia Aochi
    • Tsubasa Kagome = Ann Tiggany
    • Bansai Ichiyanagi = Oswald Furst
    • Borumosu = Bullmoth

    • Ryuji Kamei = Paul Enicies
    • Ami Aizawa = Belle Ward
    • For the game itself: Ace Attorney Investigations, before that title was bestowed, was called Perfect Prosecutor by the fandom (though early announcements in Nintendo Power magazine also used that name).
    • Gumshoe had been 'Gummy' to the fandom for years beforehand, but Kay makes the nickname canon.
  • No Export for You: Scheduling reasons prevented the 2nd game from being localized. Immediately after Investigations 2 was released in Japan, the team of developers were disbanded and moved towards different departments to work on new games, so they were never given a chance to localize it. That doesn't mean that it'll be impossible to ever see it localized, but they can't make any promises.
  • Serendipity Writes the Plot: Edgeworth's flashback to the DL-6 incident in the 4th case is masked heavily and bordered by a "cloudy" filter (in addition to the series standard of merely putting flashbacks in black and white) to hide the fact that it is reused from the original GBA game (and thus has a 240 160 resolution with a 15 bit color depth on a 256 x 192 screen with 18 bit color depth) while Investigations is otherwise free of such sprite reuse (contrast Apollo Justice, where such reuse is very blatant when it occurs).
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Concept art for Shi-Long Lang featured him shirtless, with the constellation of Orion scarred on his chest. Seems the director objected to the toplessness, even after a feather boa was added to cover the nipples.
    • A trailer shows Kay appearing in Turnabout Airline. Whether this means Kay would have first appeared earlier, or that Turnabout Airlines was originally a later case, is anybody's guess.
    • Originally the concept of the game involved Ema Skye as the protagonist and the game would focus on forensics tactics.
    • Concept art sketches show that Quercus Alba's design went through a phase with him looking much more like a gnarly old tree.
