Friday Favorites: Ace Attorney Characters

Double Jump Kris MiiYay for the weekend! Everyone have nice plans for the long weekend, for those of you who have it?

One of the games that Rachel and I are most anxious to play is the new Ace Attorney game, Spirit of Justice. It boasts new and old characters alike, so I thought it fitting to showcase some of my favorite characters from the original trilogy of the Ace Attorney games: Ace Attorney, Justice for All, and Trials and Tribulations.

5. Gumshoe

Who didn’t love Detective Gumshoe? He seemed to be a giant teddy bear, and was totally devoted to doing his absolute best for the police force and the attorneys on whatever case he was investigating. Sure, he was a bit clumsy, but his heart was always in the right place.

4. Maya Fey

Charming, enthusiastic, and loyal to her best friends and sister’s memory, Maya was a fantastic sidekick for Phoenix Wright. Her spirit abilities and sunny presence always helped during the cases.

3. Godot

First of all, this guy’s coffee puns were amazing. Secondly, he was always a challenging and mysterious prosecutor throughout the Trials and Tribulations game. Once his whole story and motivations unfolded in the game, it was all too easy for him to climb up my list of favorites.

2. Phoenix Wright

Of course Phoenix needs to be on this list! As the main character of the games, the player spends a lot of time with him, and his loyalty, sense of justice, and love of his friends makes him an endearing character.

1. Miles Edgeworth

Okay, so this guy was a bit of an ass at first, but he clearly knew what he was doing as a prosecutor. He also had a fantastic redemption arc in the original Ace Attorney in an episode that still remains my favorite to date.
