Final SmashEdit


Points and shouts "Objection!" and if it hits an opponent, the stage becomes a courtroom, where Phoenix is questioning the hit opponent, who gets heavily damaged, and all other fighters are in the gallery, mildly damaged. What Pheonix questions the opponent about depends on who the opponent is. Here is a list of Pheonix Wright Questionings.  After that, they return to the stage and all opponents get pushed back from Phoenix. Phoenix returns to Investigation Mode.

"The one who actually committed the crime... Is you! No alibi, no justice, no dream, no hope! It's time to pay for your crimes! Take that!"

(This is what he says to fighters that do not have a specific questioning quote.


Up-Reads his papers and shakes his head.

Side-Does a heroic pose.

Down- Points, and says "There is something vague in your testimony."



  • Points and shouts Objection!
  • Laughs hysterically "Hehe...heheheh..."
  • Looks around "There is this piece of evidence that contradicts what the witness said... I think."


Puts his hands on his head. "One more chance, please."
