Ace Attorney/Awesome

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Take moments specific to the Phoenix arc, Apollo Justice, or Investigations to those pages, please.

  • Come to think of it, all final cases have their own Crowning Moment of Awesome: "Turnabout Goodbyes" is considered one of the best cases in the series, and is indeed awesome ("I'd like to cross-examine the parrot" being one of the more memorable points in the series, and let's not forget von Karma banging his head on the wall when he is revealed to be the true killer of Gregory Edgeworth.).
    "Rise from the Ashes" is another well-known case, because of a zany cast of characters (A Cowboy Cop and a lunchlady? Both of which were former detectives?), it's severe length and difficulty (being the longest case in the series), Phoenix and Edgeworth taking down Damon Gant and solving SL-9, Gant's breakdown, and many more.
    "Farewell, my Turnabout" is considered THE best in the series by a large portion of the fanbase Proof: Look how many "best case" lists it tops in that thread) and is famous for being the first case to include multiple endings, an amazing twist that shows Matt Engarde's guilt, Phoenix proving to De Killer that Matt Engarde has Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, Edgeworth realizing that Matt Engarde is the killer way before Phoenix does, Franziska's return, oh so many for one case.
    Then there's "Bridge to the Turnabout", which involves the pendulum corpse animation, Godot's self-conviction mini-gambit, Mia's Hannibal Lecture slash Humiliation Conga, the relevation of the Gambit Pileup, and who could forget the Super Objection? With a name like that, you know something awesome will happen.
    And despite the Broken Base, "Turnabout Succession" contains undeniable proof that Phoenix Wright is a man worthy of the ranks of Chessmaster, Kristoph Gavin's OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND freakout, The Judge's statement about law being a gem used again, Klavier and Apollo successfully taking down Kristoph, and of course Phoenix Wright's last case, if saddening (because Wright gets disbarred), is still awesome due to the nostalgia.
    Then there's "Turnabout Ablaze", and the FOUR, count them, FOUR CONSECUTIVE BIG DAMN HERO MOMENTS NEAR THE END. Now THAT'S artistic AWESOME.
  • Considering Investigations... Two words: LOGIC EXPLOSION.
  • During the final moments of the trial in Bridge to the Turnabout, Godot claims that Wright will never be half the lawyer Mia was and challenges him to prove where that he's the killer. Phoenix pauses for a moment and reflects, and suddenly...the Pursuit ~ Cornered! music from the first game starts playing and Phoenix essentially says: "Bring it." The music alone gave me chills.
