Lance's kidnapping and Devorae's murder
- Main article: The Kidnapped Turnabout
After an altercation with Deacon that resulted in the latter being shot dead, Lance Amano used the Bad Badger's head in an attempt to frame Lauren Paups for the murder. After knocking Edgeworth out, Amano tied him up in a room in the Wild, Wild West area and put the Bad Badger's head over his head. He then showed Edgeworth to Lauren Paups, told her that it was Deacon, and gave her a gun supposedly for protection, though the gun was actually a prop. He later told Paups that Deacon had escaped to the stadium and headed there himself, dressed up as the Bad Badger, and thus disguised as Deacon. Paups encountered and shot "Deacon" there, leading her to believe that she had killed Deacon.
Edgeworth eventually woke up and discovered the Bad Badger's head. It was later used to prove that the "Bad Badger" Lauren Paups could have been wearing only the head while wearing a different Badger costume. Later, he discovered that when Paups had seen "Deacon" tied up in the isolation room, it had in fact been Amano with the Bad Badger's head on to fool her.
