Added DiffLines:

* After Tonate's breakdown, the counter on his bomb defusal training device runs out and simply reads [[GameOver GAME OVER]].

Added DiffLines:

* On the first trial day, Blackquill wordlessly looks at the Judge, which gets him to call the first witness without an opening statement to Athena's dismay. Immediately after, Blackquill has Taka fly at Athena as if he's attacking her, but only flew by to give her the autopsy report.
--> '''Apollo''': Wow, that bird can deliver evidence, too? Blackquill has trained him well.
--> '''Athena''': Maybe Blackquill should train it not to mess up people's hair while he's at it.


'''Phoenix:''' (That's a '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis REALLY. BIG. OOPSIE.]]'''

to:

'''Phoenix:''' (That's a '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis REALLY. BIG. OOPSIE.]]''']]''')

Added DiffLines:

* When breaking Fulbright's Psyche-Lock during the investigation segment, Phoenix deduces that Fulbright is troubled about something related to his code of ethics, with the choices being "Life", "Love", and "Justice". The last one is obviously the correct answer if you know [[ForGreatJustice Fulbright]], and picking "Life" will have him respond with a simple SureLetsGoWithThat response, but choosing "Love" results in Fulbright telling a story where he is indeed troubled by Love... that is, his pet carp Love, because he tried putting it in the same tank as all his goldfish, only to learn the hard way that carp EAT goldfish.

Added DiffLines:

* If you ask Athena for clues early on the second investigation day after [[spoiler:Sasha's arrest]], Athena expresses anger at Blackquill's trickery, while Phoenix keeps his cool and suggests continuing the investigation, leading to this conversation:
-->'''Athena:''' Gee, Mr. Wright! You sure know how to stay calm in a crisis!
-->'''Athena:''' ''(adopting her angry sprite and showing a red-for-anger Widget)'' I can top that! LOOK HOW CALM I CAN BE!
-->'''Phoenix:''' [[SarcasmMode (Yes, the very definition of "calm," I'd say...)]]


* Phoenix rather predictably cross-examining Orla is funny on it's own, but pressing her statements brings on some entertaining conversations, particularly: "Ms. Shipley! I'm afraid 'fweet fweet fweet' is ''not'' going to get us anywhere!" The fact that when pressing Orla's first statement Phoenix probably didn't say "fweet fweet fweet" but did his best orca impression is ''hilarious'' on its own. Pressing the second one has Simon threaten the defence with forty lashes with a wet fish, to which Phoenix says that he knows from experience that anything is better than forty lashes with a whip. Phoenix also takes cross-examining Orla as seriously, if not more than, his other witnesses, as does the Judge, while Simon is busy thinking that he's OnlySaneMan in the courtroom and that he's been SurroundedByIdiots.

* More like retroactive funny but try and envision O'Connor, Newman, Myriam, and Juniper in court. As in, as the defence leader, the prosecution, and as judges. Particularly Newman and Myriam. Newman's animations when she makes a point in her favour involve her twirling on the spot and going :D, when the defence makes a good point she swoons and faints... and Myriam is just a box sitting at the judge's bench. O'Connor's got his bow and arrow like how Franziska has her whip and when his case takes damage he smacks himself in the head with it, and Junie's got that cough and giant sunflower in her hair.

!!Turnabout Reclaimed

* Blackquill cutting off Phoenix's IdiotHair. Which respawns. And his eyes look like they're following the strand as it falls to the ground.
* Athena taking a volleyball that Orla kicked to her face.
* When Phoenix first learns that his client is going to be an orca.
-->'''Sasha:''' Did I forget to mention that? [[{{Understatement}} Oopsie]].\\
'''Phoenix:''' (That's a '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis REALLY. BIG. OOPSIE.]]'''
* Examining a broken octopus leg from a prop gives us this:
-->'''Athena:''' Wow. I bet you could get a whole lot of Carpaccio from a leg like that. Ooh, let's go to the ocean and try and catch a giant octopus of our own!\\
'''Phoenix:''' Yeah, but even if we did catch one, how are you planning to slice it up?\\
'''Athena:''' [[GratuitousGerman Kein Problem!]] [[ChainsawGood That's what man invented chainsaws for!]]\\
'''Phoenix:''' ''(I've never seen anyone so hell-bent on chomping down on some giant octopus before…)'' Well, I doubt we could even catch one that big anywhere near the shore, anyway…\\
'''Athena:''' [[{{Determinator}} The more roadblocks you throw up, the more I want to do it, you know.]] Ooh, I can't wait to get started!\\
'''Phoenix:''' ''[[DeadpanSnarker (It would appear that]]'' ''[[OnlySaneMan Operation Discourage Insanity has backfired…)]]''
* During the case, one of the pieces of evidence is a bunch of raw fish. Presenting this gets a response out of nearly everyone, but Apollo's takes the cake:
-->'''Apollo''': Fish? I haven't had fish for a while, come to think of it... The obvious question, though, is, "What are you doing with a bunch of raw fish?!"
* Athena's and Norma's individual {{Imagine Spot}}s, while recalling the song from the pirate show. For starters, everyone's dressed like a pirate during these spots. Norma's version has her chasing down Athena and attempting to make out with Phoenix, and Athena's has Norma pouting while tied to the mast of the ship.
* The reference of all references from the DLC case:
-->'''Phoenix''': (A [[{{Film/Sharknado}} tornado of sharks]]? Not even Hollywood could conjure up [[TakeThat something that insane]].)
* Presenting the wrong evidence when asked to prove that [[spoiler:the singing trick]] was faked gets you this piece of InsaneTrollLogic:
-->'''Judge:''' That item proves [[spoiler:the singing trick]] was faked?\\
'''Phoenix:''' No, Your Honor. This piece of evidence will not prove that. In other words... this piece of evidence is... a fake-out! And if this evidence is a fake-out, then [[spoiler:the singing trick]] was a fake-out as well!\\
'''Athena:''' Boss, I don't think that makes any sense...\\
'''Phoenix:''' Momentum is key at times like these.\\
'''Judge:''' I can hear every word you're saying, Mr. Wright! ''*boom*''
* A recurring CallBack in this case refers to that time when Phoenix cross-examined an animal in court and was able to find his client innocent because of it. At one point in the second trial day, there's even an option to cross-examine Orla, [[spoiler:but the correct option is to present evidence instead, which leaves the judge disappointed.]] However, [[spoiler:Phoenix later cross-examines Orla anyways when he's all out of options.]] Naturally, [[spoiler:Orla's testimony consists of nothing but orca noises, pressing her statements has Phoenix and Athena try to conduct the cross-examination like they would with a human witness]], and Blackquill very overtly expresses his annoyance for the whole thing.
* Marlon Rimes ''rapping'' before his testimony. [[spoiler:One of his testimonies just consists of him rapping. That testimony is even called "The Dissin' of Phoenix Wright"! And even when cross-examining him, he still does his rapping gestures!]]
* Marlon Rimes, a shrimpy wannabe rapper [[spoiler:transforming WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}}-style to a completely buff thug complete with dreads and a rapper chain that says 'Rimes'...''and then he throws on a pirate hat and picks up a huge marlin out of nowhere and starts [[TalkLikeAPirate talking like a pirate]], '''while still continuing to freestyle'''!'']] Hilarious and quite possibly one of the most unexpected moments in the whole series.
** The Judge's reaction to the resulting chaos is hilarious as well, mainly because it's so true:
--->'''Judge:''' O-Order! If we don't have order, Prosecutor Blackquill will yell at us!
*** On the contrary, [[ReactionShot when the camera cuts to Blackquill]], he's holding his chest in shock, [[NotSoAboveItAll just as startled by Rimes' behavior as everyone else!]] Phoenix even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it!
* At the end of the case, [[spoiler:when Phoenix tries to feed Orla fish, Orla goes up to him and kisses him!]] Made even better by the fact that the game devotes a cutscene to show the event and Phoenix's hilarious reaction.
* When the Judge finds Sniper the penguin adorable, Blackquill complains that the Judge has never been so complimentary about Taka. The Judge quickly states that of course Taka is a fine bird as well.
** Blackquill talking to Taka about how the only animals worth visiting at the aquarium are the penguins. He just sounds like such a bird geek.
** When Phoenix presses one of Herman Crab's statements, Herman points out that the answer to Phoenix's question was already established in the trial, and calls him almost as stupid as Rifle the penguin. Blackquill immediately objects, goes for his "sword" and sends Taka on the attack, warning him to never insult a bird again.
* Pressing one of Marlon's statements has Blackquill send Taka out for a target. The Judge, Phoenix, AND Athena dive under the desks in a moment of synchronised panic while Marlon just looks confused.
-->'''Athena:''' Everyone's so busy protecting their head, they forgot about the trial…\\
'''Phoenix:''' Including you.
* The following bit of conversation in the trial.
-->'''Sasha:''' Heh heh. That Orla is smarter than the average whale, I tell you!
-->'''Blackquill:''' Hmph. Taka would not be bested in a battle of wits.
-->'''Athena:''' Hold it!
-->'''Athena:''' Wait a minute! [[ExpressiveAccessory Widget]] is the smartest one of all!
-->'''Widget:''' Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who's the smartest one of all? Widget!
-->'''Phoenix:''' (Am I expected to enter Trucy into this "my kid is better than yours"-apalooza...?)
* Norma de Plume doing the MarilynManeuver whenever you shoot a hole in her testimony. Especially [[BrainBleach Phoenix's disgusted reactions]].
** Phoenix's "breakdown" animation is typically used for the DarkestHour in a case or when you're heading for a bad end, including this game. The DLC case gives the exception to the rule after [[spoiler:Norma de Plume's WardrobeMalfunction]].
* Phoenix rather predictably cross-examining Orla is funny on it's own, but pressing her statements brings on some entertaining conversations, particularly: "Ms. Shipley! I'm afraid 'fweet fweet fweet' is ''not'' going to get us anywhere!" The fact that when pressing Orla's first statement Phoenix probably didn't say "fweet fweet fweet" but did his best orca impression is ''hilarious'' on its own.

Phoenix also takes cross-examining Orla as seriously, if not more than, his other witnesses, as does the Judge, while Simon is busy thinking that he's OnlySaneMan in the courtroom and that he's been SurroundedByIdiots.
* Nick shooting down some of Simon's jailbird wisdom:
-->'''Blackquill:''' A fellow inmate told me just this morning... "If you want something signed, all you need is a document and a witness."
-->'''Phoenix:''' ...Let me guess. They were convicted for contract fraud, right?
-->'''Blackquill:''' [[DeathGlare ............]]
-->'''Phoenix:''' (Looks like I guessed right.)
* "Mr. Rimes! Please refrain from scattering fish around the witness stand!" Then Blackquill sends Taka over to eat said fish.
* The RunningGag of Apollo flat-out getting no respect, with Phoenix making him do a bunch of mundane tasks around the office instead of actually helping with the case.
