|It’s only natural for living creatures to fight to protect their own lives. But what makes us human is that we fight for others. But who do you fight for? How hard must you fight…? That’s the true measure of what human life is worth. We defense attorneys are warriors who are constantly challenged by that question. Even when the battle is over, and the bonds that connect us are severed… We always return… Time and time again.|
Bridge to the Turnabout Phoenix Wright is a veteran defense lawyer who heads the Wright Anything Agency. by and large specializing in criminal trials, Wright is renowned for his ability to turn apparently hopeless cases around. Beginning his career under Mia Fey in 2016, he was disbarred in 2019 after unwittingly presenting forged evidence. After spending the pursue seven years as a pianist who moonlighted as an undefeated poker player at the Borscht Bowl Club, he was instrumental in the organization of a test trial for the Jurist System, resulting in his vindication and reinstatement into the barroom. Wright has besides been a defendant himself at least three times in his life, each fourth dimension either hiring a different lawyer, or representing himself .
early on life
Phoenix Wright grew up as an merely child. He once told Apollo Justice that he was raised in a barn, to explain the untidiness of his hospital sleep together, although he was likely just joking. At one orient in his life sentence, Wright broke into a cattle ranch and tipped some cows. [ 2 ] Years belated, Luke Atmey stated that Wright credibly received the same message on his school report card every year : “ Careless, with tendency to jump to conclusions ” ; judging from the lawyer ‘s reaction, this was not far from the truth. Wright has stated that his teachers constantly said he was “ a good thunker ” [sic] and has related that it was pouring with rain on the day of his elementary school graduation .
The class trial
- Main article: Class trial
possibly the most transformative incident in Wright ‘s early life was during fourth grade, when his class accused Wright of stealing the lunch money of a schoolmate, Miles Edgeworth. Since Wright was the only student not in gymnasium class when the larceny had occurred, everyone assumed Wright was the perpetrator, even the teacher, but Edgeworth came to his defense. Edgeworth pointed out that, while everyone kept saying that Wright was guilty, no one had any evidence. Regardless, the class continued to accuse Wright, saying that they did not need proof to know that he was the thief, but Larry Butz, the class troublemaker, besides stood up for Wright. He accused the class of ganging up on Wright, and not considering how he felt. ultimately, the teacher ended the trial, declaring Wright not guilty, and replaced the money herself. Wright, Edgeworth, and Butz became inseparable friends after this incident. Fifteen years late, it was ultimately revealed that, despite not being in school that sidereal day, Butz was the one who had stolen the lunch money, though Edgeworth had known this all along. At the time, Edgeworth idolized his celebrated founder Gregory Edgeworth, a legendary department of defense lawyer. The class test would prove to be a brawny inspiration for Wright during his legal career. After the DL-6 Incident, which resulted in Gregory ‘s end, Miles transferred schools and moved out of town .

|Aaaarrgghh… *achoo* *achoo* Leave my Dollie alone! *achoo* *cough*|
Wright went on to study art and police at Ivy University. During his prison term there, he saw a report in a newspaper with the headline “ Dark Suspicions of a Demon Attorney ”. The article said that prosecutor Miles Edgeworth was suspected of tampering with witnesses and fabricating evidence ; it appeared that Edgeworth had become a pitiless prosecutor, unrecognizable from the acquaintance that Wright knew from his childhood. Although Wright attempted to contact his childhood friend, he never received a reply. He decided that if he became an lawyer, Edgeworth would be forced to meet him finally in court, whereupon Wright could confront and help him see the error of his ways. In his one-third class at university, Wright met Dahlia Hawthorne in the District Court basement library and was immediately enamored with her. She wrote him a poem and gave him a bottle necklace, telling him that it was a symbol of their love. They subsequently began to date, though in all subsequent meetings, and unbeknown to Wright, “ Dahlia ” was replaced with Iris, Dahlia ‘s twin sister, who posed as her. For eight months, she tried to convince Wright to give the necklace back, as differently her sister planned to kill him, but Wright refused ; as he was unaware of her reasoning, he thought that she was only joking and did not mean it. During the course of said eight months, Wright greatly enjoyed spend time with his new girlfriend, who knitted him a pinko perspirer, made him mini omelets which he loved, and had lunch with him every day. however, things would soon change, as the true Dahlia Hawthorne was getting impatient. One day, while suffering from a bad cold and losing his medicate, Wright met with Doug Swallow, a former lover of Hawthorne, who told him that she was dangerous ; she had stolen poisonous chemicals from his lab before and immediately some chemicals were missing again. Horrified by Swallow ‘s blasphemous statements about his beloved, Wright pushed him onto the ground, and Swallow fell onto his umbrella, breaking it. Wright then left, but a few minutes late, a herd began to gather around where Swallow had fallen, and Wright returned to the fit to find Swallow absolutely, with Wright ‘s previously missing cold medicine in his hand. Wright was soon accused of the murder and put on trial. Wright ‘s lawyer was Mia Fey, a cub lawyer who had not taken a character since her first a year anterior. Wright did not cooperate with Fey at beginning, lying that he had not known the victim. One of the prosecution ‘s witnesses was Hawthorne herself, which Wright found hard to believe. Fey finally accused Hawthorne of the murder and claimed that the necklace had actually contained a poison used to incapacitate another individual inside the courthouse on the same day in which Hawthorne and Wright had met. Wright could take no more of this and ran out of the court. By the time he was forced back at heart, he had swallowed the necklace. Fey then told Wright that he would have to believe in her if he wanted to avoid a conviction. Wright last cooperated and gave his entire history of the sidereal day ‘s events. Fey finally showed that Hawthorne had originally intended to kill Wright by poisoning his cold medicine, but after seeing Wright ‘s encounter with Swallow, she had changed her design and killed Swallow alternatively, intending to frame Wright. Wright received a not guilty verdict, but he still could not believe that Hawthorne had betrayed him, and even suggested that the Dahlia Hawthorne he saw in that court had been a fake. Fey replied that he should move on with his life. Fey ‘s dogged defense of Wright inspired him to pursue jurisprudence full-time, and he came to receive his lawyer ‘s badge with identification number 26381. meanwhile, Hawthorne was convicted and sentenced to death .
early law career
|Mr. Wright. You are truly the most unpredictable defense attorney I’ve ever known.|
The cub lawyer
After receiving his law academic degree, Wright became a student of Mia Fey and a penis of Fey & Co. Law Offices. In his beginning case, he successfully defended his childhood supporter, Larry Butz, who was accused of murdering an ex-girlfriend, by revealing the true perpetrator to be the prosecution ‘s star witness. When Mia was murdered one month former, her younger sister Maya Fey was put on trial. Wright took on her defense and last met Edgeworth in the ensuing court battle which concluded, with aid from Maya using her liveliness medium abilities to channel Mia, with Edgeworth ‘s first ever loss. Wright then inherited Mia ‘s firm, renaming it Wright & Co. Law Offices and taking on Maya as his assistant. Wright faced Edgeworth again a month late in another case, in which television star Will Powers, who played the Steel Samurai in The Steel Samurai: Warrior of Neo Olde Tokyo, was accused of murdering Jack Hammer, who played the Steel Samurai ‘s bane, the Evil Magistrate. ampere well as featuring a child on the witness stand, the subject besides saw Wright escape a deadly meeting with the local mafia due to the seasonably arrival of Detective Dick Gumshoe. The woo found Powers impeccant in Wright ‘s third base consecutive succeed, although this time Edgeworth actively helped the defense mechanism near the end of the final test day to ensure that the dependable killer was found. A few months after Powers ‘ acquittal, Wright found himself defending Edgeworth in the murder of department of defense lawyer Robert Hammond. The prosecutor was Edgeworth ‘s mentor and adoptive don, Manfred von Karma, who would do whatever it took to maintain his perfect 40-year gain commemorate. Wright ‘s investigation of the mangle uncovered the whole floor behind the unsolved DL-6 Incident, which had resulted in the death of Edgeworth ‘s beget fifteen years anterior. Wright went on to prove that von Karma was not only the perpetrator behind the DL-6 Incident, but had besides instigated Hammond ‘s mangle. After repeatedly failing to channel Mia during the casing, a depress Maya came to feel that she was a load to Wright, and left to train her spirit medium abilities back in her hometown of Kurain Village. Wright stopped taking cases after Maya left, until Ema Skye came into his office looking for help, as her older sister Lana had been accused of murder. With Ema ‘s forensic science tools, including fingerprint powder and luminol, Wright was able to uncover the accuracy behind not only the mangle that began the encase, but besides the events that had led to it two years anterior in the SL-9 Incident. Wright faced Edgeworth again in court, and they once again finally worked together to defeat the real killer whale behind both incidents .
The Fey plot
Edgeworth disappeared after Lana Skye ‘s test, leaving behind what appeared to be a suicide note. The note itself read, “ prosecutor Miles Edgeworth Chooses Death ”. Wright decided that Edgeworth had taken the coward ‘s way out after having his reasons for prosecuting challenged. Wright hated Edgeworth for doing this and returned to refusing to take on cases .
Wright ‘s semi-retirement was shattered when Dr. Turner Grey came to his office to request Maya ‘s services in emotional state channel, as she would only agree to help the sophisticate if Wright was present. This took Wright to Maya ‘s hometown of Kurain Village, where he met Maya ‘s young cousin Pearl Fey. however, Wright soon found himself entangled in Morgan Fey ‘s trespass plot involving Pearl when Grey was murdered and Maya put on trial for the crime. Wright discovered that Manfred von Karma ‘s daughter, Franziska von Karma, would be prosecuting the case. Upon meeting her in court, he found himself reliving much of his unpleasant experiences with Manfred. During Wright ‘s investigation of the murder, Maya gave him her magatama, which Pearl charged with spiritual department of energy to allow Wright to see the secrets of other people in the class of Psyche-Locks. Wright gave Franziska her inaugural not-guilty verdict, devastating her fair as it had done so for Edgeworth. With Maya returning as his adjunct, Wright restarted his career by defending Maggey Byrde on murder charges. He managed to prevail and get her acquitted, despite being in an amnesic state for the majority of the trial after being struck on the head by the true perpetrator. He then faced Franziska again when he found himself defending circus magician Max Galactica in a bizarre character in which a witness claimed to have seen Galactica flying after murdering the ringmaster at the Berry Big Circus .
Defending the guilty
|Wright. Listen, you need to know something. Juan Corrida was killed by Shelly de Killer. And the client who ordered the job… is Matt Engarde… Your own client.|
Farewell, My Turnabout
During a “ Hero of Heroes Grand Prix “ event, television star Juan Corrida was killed. even worse, his cause of death, an assassin named Shelly de Killer, kidnapped Maya Fey and coerced Wright into defending the star of The Nickel Samurai, Matt Engarde, who was accused of the crime. During the ensuing character, Miles Edgeworth returned from what turned out to be an overseas tripper, and Wright gave him a cold welcome. De Killer subsequently non-fatally shot Franziska outside of the court good before the trial, forcing Edgeworth to take her place diametric Wright. Although Wright tried to accuse Engarde ‘s director adrian Andrews of the murder in court, Edgeworth forced Andrews to admit to trying to frame Engarde, but not actually committing the murder. For the first time, it seemed that Wright ‘s accusation was ill-timed, and during his investigation, he confronted Engarde, lone to realize to his horror that his client had hired delaware Killer to commit the mangle. Wright told Edgeworth about his plight : by giving into de Killer ‘s demands, a killer whale would go rid and the improper person would be convicted for the mangle, but by pursuing department of justice against Engarde, Wright would lose Maya. Edgeworth told Wright that he had left the country to learn what it in truth meant to be a lawyer and that now it was Wright ‘s turn to do the same. Edgeworth had the police department try to chase down de Killer while he and Wright stalled for time in woo in an attempt to help release the lawyer from the no-win position he found himself in. Although de Killer managed to evade the patrol, he left behind crucial evidence, which Detective Gumshoe hurried to deliver to the court. Wright soon found himself out of time and forced to make the frightful choice of which verdict to pursue and, by proxy, whether judge or Maya ‘s guard was more important to him. however, his nasty decision was interrupted by Franziska bursting into the court with Gumshoe ‘s testify. Among said attest was a videotape of Corrida ‘s murder, which Engarde had planned to use to blackmail de Killer. Upon finding out about this betrayal, an angered de Killer freed Maya and made Engarde his next target. With the tables turned against him and desperate to escape the assassin ‘s retaliation, Engarde accepted his guilty verdict .
The mysterious Godot
|(There’s no denying it. Behind that mask is a man who really hates me for some reason or another!)|
Recipe for Turnabout Some months belated, a Fey kin heirloom was stolen and Ron DeLite turned himself in as the mysterious cloaked thief Mask☆DeMasque. Wright took DeLite ‘s case and faced another masked man in the court, a coffee-loving prosecutor named Godot. Wright won the trial by exposing Mask☆DeMasque ‘s arch-nemesis, Detective Luke Atmey, as the real Mask☆DeMasque, but DeLite was immediately thrown into a murder case, with the victim being his former foreman at KB Security, Kane Bullard. Wright faced Godot again and found that DeLite in truth was Mask☆DeMasque and that Atmey had merely pretended to be the thief to avoid the murder charge for killing Bullard. Wright noticed throughout the test that Godot seemed to have a vendetta against him, though he could not explain why. Wright faced Godot again in an attract trial after Maggey Byrde had been convicted of the murder of Glen Elg following the poor manage of the inaugural shell by person perplex as Wright. Wright investigated the vicinity of a loanword party called Tender Lender and found that the witness murder had been staged, with the actual murder occurring prior. Wright confronted the owner of Tender Lender in court and managed to trick him into implicating himself for Elg ‘s murder, deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as revealing that he was the imposter who had impersonated Wright in Byrde ‘s previous test in order to secure a guilty verdict .
- Main article: Bridge to the Turnabout
A calendar month after Byrde ‘s trial, Maya showed Wright a cartridge holder article about a spirit medium train temple. Wright initially refused to accompany her and Pearl to the temple, but quickly changed his mind upon seeing one of the nuns in the article, as she looked identical to his university girlfriend, Dahlia Hawthorne. At the synagogue, Wright met Larry Butz again, deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as the Hawthorne doppelganger, who was a conical buoy named Iris. Wright besides met the head conical buoy, Bikini, and Butz ‘s new “ teacher ”, Elise Deauxnim. however, that night Bikini witnessed Iris stabbing Deauxnim with the temple ‘s Shichishito sword and told Wright to call the patrol using a telephone near Dusky Bridge, only for said bridge to be ablaze upon his arrival. Fearing for Maya, who was training in the Inner Temple ‘s Sacred Cavern on the other side of the bridge, he told Butz to call the police while he ran across, alone for the bridge to break underneath him and drop the lawyer into the Eagle River far below .
Edgeworth found out about the accident from a panic Butz and promptly rushed to see Wright in the hospital. fortunately, Wright suffered merely minor injuries and a cold because of his mishap. He asked Edgeworth to fill in as Iris ‘s defense until he recovered and gave both his lawyer ‘s badge and magatama to the prosecutor. As Edgeworth left to investigate the mangle, Wright researched Mia ‘s first subject, which had seen Hawthorne closely implicated for murder, only for the defendant to kill himself, thereby stopping the test. The future day, Wright left the hospital and took over where Edgeworth had left off. The bridge was repaired, but Maya was locked inside the Inner Temple. Wright soon ran into Godot, who told him that he should have protected Mia. As Wright wondered about this remark, he discovered that Hawthorne had been executed a month prior and that Iris was her counterpart sister. He besides found out that the victim, Elise Deauxnim, was actually Maya and Mia ‘s mother, Misty Fey, who had disappeared after the DL-6 Incident. During the test the stick to day, Wright faced Godot in court once again. To his surprise, Iris on the spur of the moment offered herself up as a witness against Maya Fey, but Wright finally realized that “ Iris ” was actually Hawthorne, who was being channeled. Hawthorne claimed that Maya had killed herself out of guilt for murdering her own mother, but Wright realized the truth ; Maya had channeled Hawthorne to protect herself, after channeling Mia to ask for her help. As a impart Mia appeared in Pearl ‘s soundbox to tell Hawthorne that she would never win against her, an enrage and defeated Hawthorne left Maya ‘s torso. Godot then demanded that Wright face him alone, without the help from Mia that had saved Wright in his former trials. Wright took on this final challenge and entail Godot as Misty ‘s cause of death. The truth soon came out : Godot had been a colleague of Mia ‘s called Diego Armando, whom Hawthorne had poisoned before meeting Wright in the courthouse all those years ago. Godot had been acting with such hostility to Wright as he blamed him for Mia ‘s end, but last accepted that he truly blamed himself for not being there to protect her after falling into a poison-induced coma. It was besides revealed that Iris had been the one meet Wright for the whole prison term in which he had dated Hawthorne, with the exception of the first and concluding encounters. Wright forgave Iris for lying to him all those years ago and told her that he had even somehow believed in her, regardless of the events of that trial. Armando then shared one last cup of coffee with Wright before the trial ended. Wright was upset he was unable to save Armando, but Mia told him that he had saved Armando in the only way potential. Wright and the others late visited Iris in the detention center. Wright had his eyes on Iris for their entire conversation, thereby showing that he had some hover feelings for her, but Pearl slapped him for what she saw as disloyalty to Maya, giving him a nosebleed .
A calendar month after Iris ‘s trial, Wright, Maya, and Pearl went on a trip to Gatewater Land, where they all went on a ride on a dinghy together. Edgeworth besides happened to be in Gatewater Land, although he was there on business. Two weeks late, Wright and Maya were spotted once again near a crime picture being investigated by Edgeworth. This time they were looking at the Grand Tower skyscraper, astonished by the wonders of concrete masonry. however, they were prevented from encountering the crime scenery ( and Edgeworth ) by a large barrier put in place around the film lot where the investigation was taking place. During the investigations into an international smuggle closed chain and respective older cases, Wright ‘s friends and associates would occasionally refer to him, but never by name. alternatively, he was mentioned in respective dim, indirect ways ( “ him ”, “ the valet in the blue suit ”, “ a certain defense lawyer ”, and sol on ) .

In April of 2019, Zak Gramarye, a celebrated sorcerer at the prison term, called Wright to his detention cell. The sorcerer challenged him to a game of poker, which Wright won. He then asked Wright to be his lawyer, as he was suspected of having killed his headmaster, Magnifi Gramarye. He had just recently fired his previous lawyer and the trial was scheduled for the future dawn, but Wright reluctantly agreed to take the subject. The adjacent day in court, a mysterious female child gave Wright a man of newspaper that seemed to have been ripped out of a journal. He took it into woo with him, where he faced cub prosecutor Klavier Gavin. Wright was able to show that Zak ‘s phase spouse Valant Gramarye had the opportunity and motivation to kill Magnifi. In the end, Gavin presented Magnifi ‘s diary, which had a page ripped out. Wright in turn presented the firearm of paper that the daughter had given him, as it seemed to be the miss page, but Gavin declared that the tell was deceitful, calling a forger called Drew Misham to the stand, who confirmed that he had made the page. The trial abruptly ended soon after, but when Zak took the point of view to receive his sentence, he disappeared into thin air, and no verdict was ever given. Wright was then put before a Bar Association hearing. They determined that he was responsible for the counterfeit and all of them, except Kristoph Gavin, voted for Wright ‘s disbarment. even after losing his badge, however, it was apparent that the evaluator who had presided over the majority of his previous trials and those involved with the law still held him in reasonably high respect. This event became the foundation of what would become known as the “ blue senesce of the jurisprudence “, with the test of Simon Blackquill the come class starting this alleged “ age ” in earnest .
|My past is like my logic, straight and true. Nothing’s changed. All I did was point the finger of justice in the proper direction.|
Turnabout Trump Two weeks after the Gramarye trial, Wright took in Zak ‘s abandoned daughter Trucy, the like daughter who had given him the evidence that ended his career, and raised her as his own, after failing to find any close kin. He besides became friends with Kristoph Gavin, and the two of them met often over the surveil seven years. Wright suspected that Kristoph was somehow related to the bad evidence, but as he had no proof, he secretly continued his probe. Wright questioned the bailiff who had chased Zak after he disappeared, confirming that Trucy had helped her beget with his disappearing dissemble. He then questioned Drew Misham, finding out that his daughter Vera was the real forger and confirmed that Kristoph had requested the forgery. Wright then questioned Valant, who had fallen under suspicion ascribable to speculation that Zak had disappeared to protect him. He found out about a certain “ Zak & Valant ‘s Quick-Draw Shoot ’em ” trick, which had resulted in the good wound of Thalassa Gramarye, who was Magnifi ‘s daughter, Zak ‘s wife, and Trucy ‘s mother, and who had disappeared after the incident. In the years that followed, Wright ‘s function was reformed as the Wright Talent Agency, which was by and large a topographic point to store the materials for Trucy ‘s magic trick shows. Wright was hired as an metro poker actor at the Borscht Bowl Club, but besides posed as their piano player. The poker games were strictly for the rival, however, as his main generator of income was Trucy ‘s charming shows. He besides learned that Trucy could read subtle body language, and so used her in his poker games to beat all of his opponents. meanwhile, Maya kept in contact with Wright, sending him letters and DVDs from versatile Global Studios shows. Wright would besides go abroad to study extraneous judicial systems. [ quotation needed ]
Kristoph Gavin ‘s fall
- Main article: Turnabout Trump
Seven years after his disappearance, Zak Gramarye reappeared to Wright, posing as “ Shadi Smith ”. Wright questioned Zak about his intentions and the Gramarye kin, learning that Kristoph ‘s new student Apollo Justice was Magnifi ‘s grandson, Thalassa ‘s son, and Trucy ‘s stepbrother. Magnifi and his descendants had the power to read insidious body lyric, and Justice had a bracelet that allowed him to use this ability much more easily. Wright decided to use Justice to reach the truth about his last case. Zak besides wrote a letter confessing to Magnifi ‘s death, despite his innocence, and handed Wright a will passing on the legal rights to Magnifi ‘s magic trick tricks to Trucy, with a reporter named Spark Brushel present to notarize the will. Zak then challenged Wright to a poker game. The trader, Olga Orly, had been planted by Zak to plant an extra card on Wright to make it look like he was cheating, but by sheer luck, Wright came across the wag on his person and stowed it away. ferocious at the fail trap, Zak hit orly with a bottle, knocking her out. Wright moved upstairs to call the patrol, alone to find Zak ‘s dead body upon his render.
Wright called Kristoph to defend him, but when the latter mentioned Zak ‘s baldness, Wright realized that something was wrong, since Kristoph should have been unaware of that information. Wright replaced the hat on Zak ‘s head, put a drop of the victim ‘s blood on an allied command europe of spades, and left to call the patrol. He was shortly thereafter arrested on misgiving of “ Shadi Smith ‘s ” murder. Wright surprised Kristoph by hiring the latter ‘s scholar, Apollo Justice, as his lawyer. The evaluator recognized Wright, but the former defense lawyer insisted that the past not be discussed for the moment. With Justice at the helm of the defense team, Wright was able to convince him that the case was not deoxyadenosine monophosphate clear-cut as Kristoph was trying to make it out to be. Orly, the lone witness, had not killed Shadi Smith ; person else had. Wright had Trucy give Justice the ace of spades that he had picked up, which would turn out to be crucial tell. Wright and Justice, with the avail of Justice ‘s power to “ perceive ” Orly ‘s anxious twitches, finally exposed Kristoph as the real cause of death. In conclude, Wright told the court that the legal arrangement was entering dark times and that the jurisprudence would have to be changed. After the test, Wright revealed to Justice that the card evidence had been forged. Justice was horrified at this and punched Wright, but he merely answered that there was no argue for him to care about what people thought of him anymore. Justice intended not to talk to Wright after that, but Wright had early plans for him .
Two months late, Wright was running some errands when a car hit him. After being admitted to the Hickfield Clinic with a twist ankle, he called a very reluctant Apollo Justice, who was now out of a job with the blockage of Gavin Law Offices, to help him out. Wright asked Justice to find the individual who had hit him, equally well as trope out who had stolen Guy Eldoon ‘s noodle cart and Trucy ‘s “ charming panties ”. During Justice ‘s investigation, he discovered a murder, which tied all three incidents together. It besides turned out that Ema Skye had been hired as a police detective after failing her forensics examination, so Wright gave Justice a fingerprinting set to give to Skye to warm her improving to him. Wright then watched as Justice took on Klavier in court and won his case. Upon the test ‘s resolving power, Justice agreed to work with Wright and the Wright Talent Agency was rebranded as the Wright Anything Agency. Wright then began to put his plan into motion, using his influence over the judicial system to bring about the judge System. He visited Justice in his third base court battle, which involved a singer named Lamiroir, and told him that the old organization would not allow him to get a not guilty verdict through conventional means. Justice would finally have the defendant admit to criminal activity to implicate the real cause of death .
The Jurist System
- Main article: Turnabout Succession
On October 6, Drew Misham was killed via atroquinine poison and Wright, as the chair of the Jurist System Simulated Court Committee, had the courts use this incident as the test case for the Jurist System, and was even able to pick the jurists himself. Justice was appointed to the refutation ‘s workbench, defending Drew ‘s daughter Vera against Prosecutor Klavier Gavin. Wright gave Trucy Zak ‘s will, but told her not to open it until the properly time. As Justice conducted his investigation, Wright began the final stages of his own hanker investigation. Wright visited Kristoph ‘s prison cell and attempted to get information out of him, merely to see five black Psyche-Locks form around him. He then met Brushel and Valant, and told the latter about Zak ‘s will. Valant admitted that a terminally ill Magnifi had actually killed himself, which a jealous Valant had seen as an opportunity to frame Zak. Wright finally returned to Kristoph ‘s cell and tried to take an envelope that Drew had sent to Kristoph, which had on it the mangle weapon : a poison stamp. Kristoph caught him in the act, but Wright had already recorded his integral investigation with a hidden video television camera. Wright compiled his recordings into a calculator program called the MASON System, which he showed to the jury deliberating on Vera ‘s test. Although the recordings did not count as conclusive evidence under the honest-to-god system, the jury unanimously decided that there was a sufficient reason to believe that person else had committed the murder, and therefore Vera received a not guilty verdict. With Kristoph revealed as the originator behind the forge evidence that had caused Wright ‘s disbarment, the early defensive structure lawyer ‘s identify was cleared and he began planning his return to jurisprudence. Lamiroir, who was one of the jurists, visited Wright to thank him, having remembered that she was the long-lost Thalassa Gramarye. Wright told her that he would keep her children safe until she could reveal her identity to them .
Recruiting Athena Cykes
- Main article: The Monstrous Turnabout
erstwhile after Vera ‘s trial, Wright went to Europe to look into their legal systems. It was there that he met Athena Cykes, who was studying to become a lawyer. Learning she could sense elusive emotions from the voices of others, he assured her that this ability would be a great serve to people. Cykes finished her studies and became a lawyer, and Wright invited her to join the Wright Anything Agency. While meeting Cykes at the airport, Wright called Justice to accompany Trucy to Nine-Tails Vale. It was there that Justice accepted the job of defending Mayor Damian Tenma for the mangle of Alderman Rex Kyubi, and when Cykes eagerly rushed over to help with the probe, Wright phoned Justice to head over to the village to find her. Wright met with his two understudies before the test the play along day, telling them about his plan to retake the bar examination and warning them about the convict prosecutor Simon Blackquill, whose presence he himself was alerted to by now-Chief Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth. After the first test day, Justice and Cykes continued their investigation, but soon began to struggle. When they returned to the representation, Wright told them what Mia had taught him : the worst of times are when lawyers have to force their biggest smiles, render to the basics whenever stick, and constantly believe in their client. His apprentices took his advice and successfully defended Tenma and exposed his adjutant, Florent L’Belle, as the real number cause of death. After congratulating Justice and watching Tenma meet his fans as the Amazing Nine-Tails wrestler, Wright took his subordinates to Eldoon ‘s Noodles to celebrate their victory. Wright late retook the bar examination and prepared to entered the legal universe once more .
by and by police career
end of the dark age of the law
|Yeah, it’s for this very reason I returned… Time to bring it to an end.|
Wright ‘s career took off with another unusual case when he was asked to defend Orla Shipley, an aquarium killer whale who was accused of killing the aquarium ‘s owner. Although Wright managed to prove the killer whale ‘s innocence, he then had to defend her flight simulator, Sasha Buckler, who was accused of the like crime. Despite having to face Prosecutor Blackquill in court for the first meter, Wright besides ran into an old ally in the kind of Pearl Fey during the investigation. By the end of the test, Wright had managed to indict aquarist Marlon Rimes for the murder of Jack Shipley. however, when new evidence came up, Wright realized that the captain ‘s death was an accident, and so Rimes was put into reclamation, as he had attempted to kill Orla. sometime after the test, Wright, Trucy, Pearl, Cykes, and Justice returned to the aquarium to watch a new translation of their celebrated stage testify, with Rimes as one of the actors. Wright was belated invited by Themis Legal Academy to give a potential seminar at the approaching educate festival, which he agreed to, bringing Justice and Cykes along with him. A mock trial would be held to determine who gave and who received a seminar ; Wright would speak to the defense lawyer students if the defense lawyer won, while Klavier Gavin would speak to the prosecutor students if the prosecutor of the mock trial won. Wright was besides due to have a meet with Professor Constance Courte, but she did not show up. He decided to allow Justice to watch the mock trial in his space, while he and Cykes waited in the hallway. however, while the mock test was in full swing, the pair heard a crash outside. Upon investigating the sound, the two of them discovered Courte ‘s body on the outdoor stagecoach intended to be used for the festival. Although Cykes ‘s immediate chemical reaction was to alert person, Wright stopped her and stated that she should take the opportunity to examine the body in order to gather attest. After the authorities arrived at the crime scene, Justice realized that Courte ‘s murder had many similarities to the fabricated murder used in the mock test. late, as Wright was speaking to Professor Aristotle Means about the murder, it was revealed that Cykes intended to defend the flower suspect, Juniper Woods, as she was a childhood acquaintance of hers. After Means left, Wright told Cykes about the alleged “ blue historic period of the law “ and that it had infected Themis Legal Academy. After furiously fighting in the court for her node, Cykes finally revealed that Means was the true perpetrator, saving Woods. The entire Wright Anything Agency then attended the festival, which had been extended in honor of Courte. Since refutation lawyer scholar Hugh O’Conner had won the mock trial, Wright subsequently gave his seminar to the defense students. Two months later Woods was accused of planting a turkey that destroyed one of the courtrooms in the District Court. Wright was forced to take over her defense from his subordinates after both were incapacitated ; Justice was injured after protecting Woods during the bomb blast and Cykes suffered a mental breakdown during the trial owing to a traumatic previous feel in court when she was younger. Facing him was Prosecutor Gaspen Payne, younger buddy of the “ Rookie Killer “ Wright had defeated in trials past. After exonerating Woods, Wright took up the defense of astronaut Solomon Starbuck, the defendant in the trial disrupted by the court bombard, who had primitively been Justice ‘s node until the young lawyer was injured in the bombing, and stood accused of murdering fellow astronaut and close friend of Justice, Clay Terran. Although Wright soon cleared Starbuck ‘s name, he was shocked to find out that Cykes was now being indicted for the lapp murder as Starbuck. Wright found himself not only defending her, but besides having to clear the names of both her and Blackquill in the UR-1 Incident, in which Athena Cykes ‘s mother Metis Cykes had been murdered. The resulting trial took place in the ruins of Courtroom No. 4, where Wright faced off against his previous ally and equal Edgeworth once again, having risen to the side of Chief Prosecutor during Wright ‘s disbarment. During the trial, Wright was forced to cross-examine Justice, who had earlier taken a farewell of absence from the Agency to investigate Terran ‘s end on his own. Wright finally figured out that a one-third party had been creditworthy for fabricating the attest that had been used to indict Athena. Wright accused Bobby Fulbright, a detective assigned to Blackquill, of the murder of both Metis Cykes and Clay Terran. After clearing Blackquill of misgiving, Wright proceeded to question Fulbright, with the serve of Justice and his bracelet, to discern the truth behind the murder weapon. Blackquill, who had claimed the prosecutor ‘s bench from Edgeworth after being declare barren of Metis ‘s murder, sliced at Fulbright and struck his font ; the impact left a tear, which revealed it as a masquerade. The person on the spectator stall was actually an international spy known only as the “ apparition “, who had been posing as Fulbright for an unknown duration of time. Wright indicted the apparition on charges of killing Athena ‘s mother and Terran, angstrom well as being responsible for the bombing of the Cosmos Space Center. The crucial while of evidence turned out to be a shard of moon rock, which had lineage remainder from a wound the phantom suffered while escaping the fit of Metis ‘s murder. Wright used Athena ‘s earring, which had been made from the like moonlight rock, to prove that the two samples were from the same stone. thus, the fragment which contained the apparition ‘s blood was from Metis ‘s lab, and he was creditworthy for the murders of both Metis and Terran. After the phantom ‘s captivity and Athena ‘s acquittal, Wright returned to running his agency. sometime subsequently, he and his apprentices watched from the space center as Starbuck was launched into quad in the HAT-3 skyrocket .
The Court of Resignation
Four months late, Wright traveled to the Kingdom of Khura’in to visit Maya, who was visiting the country as separate of her spirit medium train. however, trouble soon reared its head when his enlistment guide, Ahlbi Ur’gaid, was arrested for murdering a guard and stealing a precious relic called the Founder ‘s Orb. Wright watched the ensuing trial and it was soon revealed that there were no defense attorneys in the country ‘s woo organization owing to its Defense Culpability Act. alternatively, verdicts were decided via the spirit medium powers of Khura’in ‘s mysterious princess Rayfa Padma Khura’in, which allowed for the wake of the victim ‘s final examination moments. Faced with apparently overwhelm evidence, Ur’gaid was declared guilty. however, Wright then appeared at the empty department of defense ‘s workbench and declared that a verdict without a defense was unacceptable, and so he would take on Ur’gaid ‘s character. Despite the consuming odds and acute hostility from the court veranda ( with even Ur’gaid initially protesting his interference ), Wright proved that Ur’gaid was innocent and that the promontory monk, Pees’lubn Andistan’dhin, had committed the murder and stolen the Founder ‘s Orb. After the trial, Wright met Justice Minister Inga Karkhuul Khura’in, who told him to keep out of the court. After Ur’gaid ‘s lawsuit, Wright heard that Trucy had been accused of murder bet on home in America, and called Justice in a panic. From the earphone call, he learned that the Wright Anything Agency agency was in risk of fiscal destroy thanks to the schemes of Take-2 TV producer, Roger Retinz. When Justice stated that he and Cykes were on the case, Wright told his subordinate that he had grown a lot and that he was confident enough to put his faith in him to save both his daughter and the agency. After Justice won the case, Wright congratulated him and acknowledged him as a full-fledged lawyer in his own right. A few weeks after Trucy ‘s trial, Wright learned that Maya had once again been accused of murder, with forefront priest Tahrust Inmee as the victim. He immediately took on the case to save her, going up against international prosecutor Nahyuta Sahdmadhi in the process. Wright conducted his investigation under the alert eye of Rayfa, with Detective Ema Skye providing aid where she could. however, despite his best efforts, the odds were excessively heavily weighed against then, and Wright lost the trial, with the copulate being declared guilty under the Defense Culpability Act. fortunately, they were given another opportunity to prove their innocence when Inmee ‘s acolyte Puhray Zeh’lot was besides found dead ; as Maya was besides accused of this murder, the trial was extended. Wright once again found himself under the insomniac eye of Rayfa for most of his probe, which finally led to the discovery of a secret insurgent hideout within the Inner Sanctum. The adopt day, Wright had Maya channel Inmee ‘s intent in order to get his testimony about the deaths of Zeh’lot and himself. Wright was subsequently able to figure out that Zeh’lot was actually Rheel Neh’mu, a government spy who hunted rebels while disguised as Lady Kee’ra. More importantly, Wright was able to deduce that the priest had committed suicide to protect his wife, Beh’leeb Inmee, from the Defense Culpability Act and prevent the police from discovering the establish. After his and Maya ‘s acquittal, Wright caught a glimpse of the insurgent drawing card, Dhurke Sahdmadhi, who was helping Beh’leeb scat with the serve of Datz Are’bal .
Witness to the revolution
- Main article: Turnabout Revolution
A few days late, Maya was kidnapped by Inga, thereby forcing Wright to obey the commands of politician Paul Atishon or else hazard Maya ‘s guard once again. This “ agreement ” coerced him into disagreeing on the identity of an artifact known as the Founder ‘s Orb that Justice had found during a trip to Kurain Village, prompting the two to have a civil trial against one another. Although they were on opposition sides of the court, Wright was silent hesitant to face off against Justice. however, Justice figured out that Maya was needed to channel the Khura’inese religious design known as the Holy Mother, whose face was revealed in the orb. This mean that Atishon was holding the ill-timed person captive, as harming her would render the eyeball useless to him. Freed from the shackles of blackmail, Wright resigned as Atishon ‘s lawyer, and the politician was arrested for the mangle of Archie Buff, who had hidden the artifact from Atishon after discovering it had been stolen. After the trial, Wright received a call from Inga, who demanded the orb in commute for Maya. Wright, Justice, Cykes, Dhurke, and Miles Edgeworth subsequently traveled to Khura’in to conduct the exchange. however, while they found Maya weakened but condom, Inga was dead, and Dhurke was immediately arrested for his murder. Wright investigated with Edgeworth at his side, meeting with Queen Ga’ran Sigatar Khura’in and learn of Inga ‘s plans for a coup d ’ état. After reuniting with Justice, Wright stood alongside his apprentice as his co-counsel during Dhurke ‘s trial. together, they faced off against both Ga’ran and Nahyuta. respective revelations were made during the trial, including the fact that Dhurke was killed by Inga while he was rescuing Maya many days earlier. Wright learned that Maya had been safe all along as she was channeling Dhurke ‘s spirit so he could meet with Justice back in the States. Wright then watched as his apprentice solved the casing and accused Ga’ran of having no good to the enthrone, attempting to assassinate her older sister, and murdering Inga. After the trial, Justice was asked to stay in Khura’in in order to help rebuild their court system and reopen Dhurke ‘s old police office, to which he agreed. Wright traveled back home plate with Maya, Cykes, Trucy ( who had stowed away in Edgeworth ‘s baggage ), and Edgeworth, knowing that Justice would be ticket in Khura’in. He late met up with Lamiroir and showed her a photograph of her belated foremost conserve, Jove Justice. He suggested that it was fourth dimension to tell Apollo and Trucy of their shared parenthood and she agreed .

respective months by and by, Wright took on the refutation of Ellen Wyatt, who was accused of murdering a handmaid after her own wedding reception ; Wyatt was to be married to Sorin Sprocket, heir to Sprocket Aviation. After the Sprocket family placed a great deal of coerce on the prosecutor ‘s office to drop the case, Edgeworth decided rather to prosecute it personally. Wright was joined in his investigation by Maya Fey and Larry Butz, the latter of whom had been convinced that Wyatt was going to marry him, leading to a reunion of sorts. Wyatt and Butz were both convinced that time travel had occurred during the marry, as they had seen two distinguish wedding receptions. During the trial, Wright determined that the “ fourth dimension travel ” had actually been an elaborate ruse set up by the Sprocket syndicate to cover up the mangle, with the reception being re-enacted late. After much slowness, Wright concluded that the true cause of death had committed the crime during the marry ceremony as part of an try revenge plot on Sorin. After Wyatt was declared not guilty, Wright attended her wedding aboard Edgeworth, Butz, Fey, Cykes, and Ema Skye .
|I’ll admit it, I’m impressed, Wright. You were always single-minded in your work, though. Once you start on something, you always see it through, don’t you?|
Phoenix Wright is generally quite easy-going in his mentality. His relax position normally leads to his friends leading him around or taking advantage of his well nature, normally by making him foot the beak of big celebratory meals. Wright besides has reasonably of a sarcastic side that he normally keeps to himself. This tends to manifest when dealing with the character characters ( including his friends ), objects, and situations he comes across. Despite his normally relax attitude, he is a preferably harsh critic when it comes to art, possibly due to his time as an art student, to the detail of openly mocking his friends ‘ art pieces on several occasions. Wright has repeatedly shown himself to be a loyal friend and lawyer who will refuse to back down once his mind is made up. Known for this trait evening in childhood, it has been a valuable asset for him, specially as it has translated into his dedication to defending and believing in the innocence of his clients. Wright ‘s commitment is such that he has frequently ended up risking his career, and tied his animation, for his friends and clients on respective occasions. For example, in the trial that got him disbarred, he showed sedate concern for the fortune of his node, flush in the midst of allegations of imposter. Drew Misham, in particular, was intrigued by this, claiming that despite Wright being the center of the trouble, he was the merely one who had not made a whirl. On the other bridge player, Wright ‘s loyalty has clouded his better judgment on a few occasions. In university, he went through great lengths to protect his girlfriend, Dahlia Hawthorne, during his own trial, based on their relationship. When his lawyer, Mia Fey, accused Hawthorne of poisoning Diego Armando and giving her bottle of poison to Wright disguised as a necklace, Wright refused to believe her and ate the necklace, though, fortunately for him, it had been emptied. even after the test, he would conclude that Hawthorne was “ not the charwoman [ he ] was dating ”, which would late turn out to be literally truthful. Years later, he attempted to cross a cauterize bridge in an undertake to save Maya, whom he believed to be trapped on the other side with a killer whale. Despite Larry Butz begging him not to, Wright went a far as to push him out of the way to get to the bridge, which immediately broke, sending him plummeting down into the river below .
Growth & festering
In his university years, Wright was reasonably of a whiner and a small childish, bursting into tears when Mia got angry with him for lying during his testimony. His naivete manifested itself largely in his relationship with Dahlia Hawthorne. His attitude at this time was reasonably comparable to that of his childhood friend Larry Butz, though the latter never in truth grew out of this behavior. Nonetheless, Wright was frequently considered the most fledged out of all of his friends at the meter. In his earlier years as a lawyer, even after he had built up a estimable repute for himself, Wright much depended on his erstwhile boss and mentor, Mia Fey, for advice. evening in death, she was generally available to help, thanks to the emotional state channeling abilities of Maya and Pearl. At one point, Wright ‘s morals were challenged when he was forced to choose between defending a guilty client to save Maya Fey or letting her die to see justice through. finally, during the trial of Iris, Godot challenged him to argue his subject without Mia ‘s help, and Wright prevailed. Since then, Wright has become more self-assured and resistant to intimidation by his opponents, such as Gaspen Payne and Simon Blackquill ( or, at least, more tolerant than Apollo Justice, Athena Cykes, and the evaluator ). however, Wright ended up undervalue Klavier Gavin due to the apparent gap in have, and he paid for this by falling correct into Gavin ‘s trap and being exposed for presenting bad evidence, albeit unwittingly. Wright has besides become more eccentric and laid-back over the years, american samoa well developing the habit of telling ( largely bad ) jokes and occasionally giving cabalistic advice, which at times irritates Apollo Justice. He besides laughs more, and not equally nervously as he did ahead. Often, when he is not in the heat of a trial, his actions and speech give off the vibration of the “ all-knowing old man ” original in literature, at least outwardly. Despite this, in the midst of a pressure-filled trial, his more excitable side from his earlier years as a lawyer rises back to the surface. His internal soliloquy besides reveals that he has retained his secret sardonic nature. During his disbarment period, Wright ‘s morals seemed to be far more flexible, about to the point of him adopting an “ end justifies the means ” brain at times, as was demonstrated by his use of forge attest in the Shadi Smith murder trial. His rationale for this behavior was that he no longer had the responsibilities of a lawyer ; moreover, people at the time thought he was a assumed anyhow, and so he had possibly given up on caring what they thought of him. however, he hush deeply care about those stopping point to him, and he maintained reach with erstwhile friends such as Ema Skye, Maya Fey, and Miles Edgeworth. He apparently did not hold any stew regarding the loss of his badge, as one might have expected, rather diligently continuing his investigation of the case that had gotten him disbarred .
Likes & dislikes
- Wright has claimed that he watches Kids’ Masterpiece Theatre every Sunday.

relationship with Trucy
|Oh, Trucy’s still a child.|
|Daddy! How many times do I have to remind you! I’m not a child anymore!|
|Ah ha ha! But you’ll always be Daddy’s little baby girl to me, Trucy.|
Phoenix and Trucy have a identical close father-daughter relationship. He is extremely wish and protective of her, and, in turn, Trucy is very caring of her father. For the first base two weeks after Phoenix was disbarred, he felt that his life was ruined and he started to act even more sarcastically than common when the loss of his badge was brought up. Phoenix has stated that Trucy helped him make it through his disbarment period, referring to her as his light. He always carries a locket with him with Trucy ‘s picture in it, wearing it around his neck while disbarred and in his breast pocket after his reelect to the court. Phoenix tends not to worry besides much about Trucy, understanding that she is more than adequate to of handling herself and that she has Justice and Cykes to depend on if she needs serve. however, he did note he should more cautiously watch what screen of magic trick she does after she proved herself to be adept with throwing knives and often denies her requests to help with investigations due to her needing to focus on her school assignment. however, his more protective side was intelligibly more visible after she was held hostage by Aura Blackquill, leaving him scar about what was going to happen to his daughter. a soon as he learned that Trucy had been arrested for mangle, Phoenix madly tried to get contain of Justice and Cykes, as he was out of the country at the time and therefore unable to help her himself. however, he did calm down once they informed him they were taking her case and would save her. After the case, he called them back and after hearing that Trucy got a not guilty verdict, was vastly relieved to know she was safe. Phoenix has voiced his refer about Trucy ‘s choice of charming props, namely her “ magic trick panties “, particularly since her magic shows involve her expose said panties to strangers. however, he claims that he does not want to say anything regarding the issue to her, partially because he has let her get away with it for so long that he does not wish to spoil her playfulness, but besides because he does not want to waste the “ expensive panties ” he brought for her .
Reputation & bequest
|In a situation like this… what would that man do…? What would he who can turn any desperate situation around do…? ………Turn it around…? That’s it! I must turn my way of thinking around!|
Wright was well known for his bluff tactics and his firm determination in the court, both of which he inherited from Mia Fey. Wright would stubbornly cling onto anything that could help his case, such as an incompatibility between the attest and the claims of the prosecution and/or the witness or a apparently insignificant clue. Wright would frequently not know where his logic was going and would make a narrative up and back it up with attest or logic equally requested as he went along. Nonetheless, depending on how a lot attention he paid to the court record, his version of the murder would normally turn out to be true finally. Wright has besides used tactics that would be considered bizarre by many ( such as cross- examining animals ), but which have regardless finally led him to the truth in his cases. Wright has besides occasionally flim-flam witnesses into implicating themselves for the crime in question. Wright was besides known for the apt lines he delivered while making his stand, though one was stolen off of Mia Fey. [ 4 ] however, such tactics have given Wright reasonably of a poor reputation among some of his enemies, such as Kristoph Gavin and Furio Tigre. Gavin has gone so army for the liberation of rwanda as to call Wright “ a mediocre lawyer ”. however, he was broadly renowned for winning apparently unwinnable cases. Wright ‘s disbarment tarnished this reputation, with the media being agile to call him a “ crook lawyer ”, but careless, he and even his law firm have been referred to as “ legendary ” in certain circles, even in the criminal hell. The judicial system was obviously forgiving adequate to allow Wright to head the Jurist System Simulated Court Committee, even giving him the power to choose the subject, jurors, defense lawyer, court, and even the evaluate used for the test. Wright was at one point known as the “ undefeated defense lawyer ” by some people, including Ema Skye, up until he finally suffered his inaugural frustration. Despite this, his record was still considered impressive since most defense attorneys would struggle to get a individual succeed in their entire careers. In Khura’in, Wright became known as the Fighting Phoenix due to being the first gear refutation lawyer to appear in court in many years and win two mangle trials despite the alleged infallibility of the Insights .
Wright Way Lunch
Angel Starr named one of her lunches in respect of Wright called the “ Wright Way Lunch ”. apparently, the top tastes vitamin a bitter as kill but the penetrate is equally sweet as victory ; Starr has suggested to “ be careful not to eat it backward ”.

- Wright has terrible handwriting, which was remarked upon when he tried to write a name while connecting dots on a jar and when reproducing the text of a letter.
- His Japanese surname, “Naruhodō” (成歩堂), comes from the Japanese expression “naruhodo”, which roughly translates as “I see”, “I understand”, or “indeed”. It is usually used to agree with other people’s ideas.
- His Japanese given name, “Ryūichi ” (龍一), originated from Ryuichi Sakamoto (坂本龍一), a Japanese composer, singer, writer, and actor, whom Shu Takumi deeply respected.. It initially had no other particular significance until Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations introduced a character named Furio Tigre (芝九蔵 虎之助, Shibakuzō Toranosuke in Japanese) — “Ryūichi” alludes to the dragon, while “Toranosuke” alludes to the tiger. The two animals are said to be natural enemies in Eastern mythology. This is referenced in-game by Tigre’s jacket design, which bears the image of a tiger biting down on the neck of a dragon.
- “Phoenix” is a reference to the Phoenix, a mythological bird that revives itself by rising from the ashes of its own death. This is a reference to Wright’s incredible comebacks during trials when it seems that all is lost (the title of Rise from the Ashes is a more obvious reference to the bird’s ability). The mythological Phoenix can also represent “the exceptional man”, perhaps alluding to Wright’s good nature and his quest for the truth.
- “Wright” is likely meant to have a similar effect to his Japanese surname (with lines such as “Isn’t that right, Wright?”) and/or as a reference to his righteous nature and sense of justice (i.e., doing what is right). The surname itself is an occupational one originating in England that comes from the Old English “wryhta” or “wyrhta“, meaning “worker” or “shaper of wood”. During Turnabout Memories, Wright introduces himself to Mia as being “Wright… Like the flying brothers”, referring to the Wright brothers.
- His given name in the unofficial Vietnamese version, “Phượng”, means “Phoenix”, alluding to his surname in the English version. His middle name, “Vân”, is derived from the interjection “vâng”, meaning “yes” or “correct”, alluding to his surname in Japanese. The Vietnamese localization team of Ace Attorney have confirmed these allusions. 
- His name in the unofficial Brazilian Portuguese fan localization is Fênix Verissimo; Fênix comes from his English localization given name (Phoenix); Verissimo came from “verossímil” (believable) and “vero”, it means “very true”, or “really true”, and maintains the semantic pattern established in the original surnames, which is also the surname of the Brazilian author Luis Fernando Verissimo, which is referenced in the Brazilan version of Turnabout Memories instead of the Wright brothers. It also an reference of Érico Veríssimo.
Wright is known for his unique peaky hairdo, which he claims is natural. This has prompted respective nicknames over the years, many of them disparaging ( for example, “ Barbed Head ” by Rayfa Padma Khura’in ). His eye color is presently depicted as colored blue, but this has varied between different artwork and in-game assets. During the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Wright typically wears a blue befit, a loss or China pink connect, and black shoes ( wore dark brown shoes in T & T artwork only ), with his lawyer ‘s badge pinned to his lawsuit crown lapel. During Turnabout Memories, he wears jeans, a bolshevik scarf, and blue striped shoes with his initials on them, along with a pink sweater that Iris knitted for him, which besides includes his initials. During Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Wright wears a darkness hooded jacket, black pants, sandals, and a blue hat with a yellow shock face and the word “ Papa ” in pink. He besides keeps a locket with Trucy ‘s picture in it around his neck. After he regains his badge, he dons a suit exchangeable to his old one, albeit with the accession of a light aristocratic vest and the locket in his front air pocket.

During Turnabout Memories, his first chronological appearance, he has three spikes of haircloth on each side ; during the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, he has four ; and from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies ahead, he has five .
Capcom vs. series
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars
Phoenix Wright and Franziska von Karma were originally supposed to be playable characters in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. [ 11 ] however, Wright had only one celebrated move – his “ Objection ! “ In-game, the attack would create the “ expostulation ! ” address bubble, which would attack opponents. The main rationality Wright was ultimately cut was that localization would enlarge the “ expostulation ! ” attack, going from four to ten characters, making the move impossible to avoid and thereby creating serious balancing issues .
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
Producer Ryota Niitsuma late expressed a desire to implement Wright into future Capcom fighting games. [ 12 ] He besides stated that, due to his popularity, specially in Europe, he was near the crown of the list of aforethought Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds downloadable characters if the game sold well enough. [ 13 ] Although Wright as a downloadable character never came to fruition, both Wright and Miles Edgeworth do make a cameo appearance in the game, namely during She-Hulk ‘s ending. In said ending, Jennifer Walters ( She-Hulk ‘s alter-ego ) becomes the server of a court reality series entitled “ Jen ‘s Justice ”, which co-stars Wright and Edgeworth.

[ 15 ] Wright does not fight conventionally ; alternatively, he fights by searching and throwing tell, rummaging and throwing papers, and sneezing at his opponents ( referencing his cold while he was on test as a student ) as a catapult or an air combo/aerial rave finisher. He has three styles of “ battle ” to switch from : “ probe Mode ” is focused on finding clues to use against his foes in court, represented by three document folders. Wright can discover either legitimate evidence or debris ( which can be thrown away ) with each piece of evidence having its own effects, such as varieties of projectiles or even pieces of meat that can be used to restore health. Wright can besides call on Maya Fey as an help to protect him while he searches for evidence. missile can besides be used as a throw deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as an help whenever Wright is not active. “ trial Mode ” is a more combat-oriented style. Large speech bubbles act as attacks that stun Wright ‘s adversary if they connect three times in a course. once Wright has gathered three viable clues, he can go into his third base mode, “ Turnabout Mode ” by using Questioning. Upon doing then, the stage ‘s background music changes to the Pursuit – Corner the Culprit subject, Wright ‘s special attacks become much more brawny, he gains access to his touch finger pointing which releases apparitional pointing fingers that possesses juggling abilities, his projectiles become faster and stronger, and he becomes able to use his Level 3 Hyper Combo, “ Ace Attorney ”. For this attack ( tied with Vergil ‘s Dark Angel as one of the strongest Hyper Combos in the crippled ), Wright accuses his opponent until they break down, dealing massive amounts of damage. His level 1 Hyper Combos include “ Steel Samurai Maya Smelting ! “, where Maya charges towards the opposition while flailing her arms, and “ rate in the Court ”, which summons the nightmare pronounce to smash both Wright and his opponent with his gavel, knocking Wright binding into Investigation Mode if he is presently in Trial Mode. When playing in the game ‘s “ Simple ” mode, Wright will alone have access to the Investigation and Courtroom Modes and can not collect any attest, consequently locking out Turnabout Mode. however, Wright makes up for this by still having access to his early two Hyper Combos ( “ Steel Samurai Maya Smelting ” in Investigation Mode and “ order in the Court ” in Courtroom Mode ), whereas early characters only have access to one. As is standard with fighting games, Wright has a phone number of alternative costumes that reference other characters in the Ace Attorney series, namely : Miles Edgeworth, Dick Gumshoe, Larry Butz, and Godot, adenine well as a downloadable “ Feenie ” costume ( featuring his attire as a college scholar ). His other option costume references Sissel from Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, another game by Ace Attorney series godhead Shu Takumi .
