About Ace Attorney
GyakutenSaibanLogo

Ace Attorney is a franchise centered around a series of visual novel / adventure hybrid video games developed and published by Capcom. It began as a trilogy of comedic legal thrillers known as Gyakuten Saiban (逆転裁判, lit. "Turnabout Trial") created by Shu Takumi and released for Nintendo's Game Boy Advance handheld in Japan between 2001 and 2004. The trilogy was later ported to the Nintendo DS between 2005 and 2007 and released internationally. These games follow the exploits of a passionate rookie defense attorney named Phoenix Wright (Ryūichi Naruhodō in Japan) who fights for his clients in a courtroom setting loosely resembling that of the Japanese legal system, using investigative skills, cross-examinations and evidence. Subsequent games have branched off and altered the formula of the original trilogy, as well as starring different protagonists. Among these, two detective games collectively known as Ace Attorney Investigations (逆転検事 Gyakuten Kenji, lit. "Turnabout Prosecutor") place the player in the role of Phoenix Wright's rival, a genius prosecutor named Miles Edgeworth, as he investigates crime scenes using evidence collection, logic and arguments. Also in progress is a series taking place in Meiji-era Japan and Victorian London, called Dai Gyakuten Saiban (大逆転裁判, lit. "Great Turnabout Trial"), starring Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and a version of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. As well, the original trilogy has been ported to Microsoft Windows, WiiWare, iOS and the Nintendo 3DS, and the original Gyakuten Saiban formula has continued with Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes as new recruits seven years after Phoenix Wright's original adventures.more

Clay portrait

Clay Terran was an astronaut and close childhood friend of Apollo Justice. He was murdered after escaping from a sabotaged rocket launch.

In middle school, Terran was crying alone after his mother had died. He was approached by his classmate Apollo Justice, who knew the pain of having no mother. Justice encouraged Terran to stand tall and yell, "Clay Terran is fine!" After the pair took turns yelling their names and that they were fine, they soon found themselves laughing together, and the two quickly became very close friends. They told each other of their dreams, with Terran wanting to become an astronaut and Justice wanting to be a lawyer. Terran and Justice occasionally visited the Cosmos Space Center, where they met the famous astronaut Solomon Starbuck, whom Terran began to look up to as a mentor.more

Featured article nomination discussions

If you choose "Other" in the poll (and even if you don't), you are encouraged to try to nominate the article that you want featured. Do this in this page's talk page. Post about an article that you think should be featured in the future, and give good reasons for your choice. Wikipedia's guidelines are good considerations for nominating articles. At the very least, though, the article should be complete as outlined in the manual of style. This basically means that it should give a complete general description of its subject by itself.

Miles Edgeworth
*grumble* (I'll kill this woman, I swear it...)
Phoenix Wright
(I feel sorry for Edgeworth, almost. She really left him hanging on this one.)

(Add your own!)

Can I quote you on that?
Godot
I am Godot. Legendary prosecutor. I've never lost a case.
Maya Fey
Ah! He's the one that Detective Atmey was talking about...
Judge
Yes, your reputation precedes you. What kind of cases have you dealt with so far?
Godot
Ha...! None.
Judge
What did you say...?
Godot
I've never prosecuted a case before.
Judge
N-Never? But you said you've never lost before.
Godot
...Exactly. I've never lost. I've never won before either.
Judge
Quite arrogant for a beginner, aren't you?
