The closing credits occur at the end of every Ace Attorney game. The main purpose of the closing credits sequence is to show the names and roles of the crew of people who contributed to each game's development. The Ace Attorney series in particular has a pattern of scenes and lines included in each game.
- 1 Structure
- 2 List of closing credits scenes
- 2.1 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (Turnabout Goodbyes)
- 2.2 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All
- 2.3 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations
- 2.4 Rise from the Ashes
- 2.5 Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
- 2.6 Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
- 2.7 Gyakuten Kenji 2
- 2.8 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies
- 2.9 The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures
- 2.10 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice
- 2.11 The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve
The credits sequence itself alternates between showing a collection of credits on a black background (except in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney where a desk of photos is used as a backdrop), and scenes showing various characters from throughout the game. In earlier games, these characters are implied to be talking to the protagonist or an anonymous individual, but later titles simply have them speaking about their plans after the events of the game. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All includes a post-credits scene. In the original Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, the sequence simply ends with the Capcom logo before returning to the title screen. The game remembers the fact that it has been completed, and text can be skipped accordingly on subsequent plays.
Every game since Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth includes a post-credits scene, after which the word "End" fades into and out of the corner of a black screen. This screen usually appears at the end of every episode, but for the final episode, the screen occurs after the post-credits scene. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies introduces a second portion showing scenes from the game in black and white. Since Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, completing the game unlocks content such as an immediately viewable collection of the anime sequences in the game.
List of closing credits scenes

- At the Hotel Lobby, Maya Fey thanks Wright, saying that she knew that he would find the letter that she had hidden in the wine cellar. She then comments on how she has escaped death three times now.
- At Viola Hall, Pearl Fey tells Wright that she heard that Gatewater Imperial Hotel is a popular choice for honeymooners, so she booked a reservation for him and Maya.

- At Criminal Affairs, Maggey Byrde tells Wright that she has resigned from the force to take up a job as a waitress.

- Moe and Benjamin Woodman are practicing in the cafeteria, with the latter mentioning a "Hallelujah Chorus" act.

- At Mask☆DeMasque's Hideout, Ron and Desirée DeLite have started a company called Mask☆DeMasque Consulting, dedicated to stopping the criminals in the city. (The motto: "Cut it out, pleeeeeeeease!") As a side business, though, they also sell plans to criminals. Ron wonders if they are the worst criminals of them all.

- At Heavenly Hall, Butz says that he has found his calling in art, and is planning to take the art world by storm with 'Franzy's Whip Lash Splash'.
The episode Rise from the Ashes has its own closing credits separately from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney due to being developed years after the original game for the Nintendo DS release. The credit screens use animations from the fingerprint powder minigame rather than simply having a black backdrop. Most of the character scenes play out like an epilogue where each character narrates what has happened to them after the case's resolution, though there are three scenes in which Wright visits Jake Marshall, Angel Starr, and Ema Skye. Additionally, tapping the touchscreen during a cutscene and then blowing it away will reveal drawings of the characters.
- At the detention center, Lana Skye reveals that she has sent her sister Ema to Europe to live with a friend of hers, who works as a coroner. Though Lana's days at the prosecutor's office were surely over, she hoped that she would be able to make it back into the field someday, and perhaps even work on cases with Ema.
- At Criminal Affairs, Gumshoe reveals that the force decided to overlook his unauthorized access to the Chief's office, because penalizing him any further would have been worse than firing him.
- Mike Meekins was demoted to security guard in charge of the police department entrance and take care of Billy the cactus at the guard station. He says that he is still determined to become a detective like Gumshoe one day.
- The dancing Blue Badger panel at the police department entrance is shown in the moments before it stops moving and collapses.
- At the detention center, Jake Marshall is eating a steak lunch given to him by Angel Starr. He is thankful that Ema is happy again, and asks to ensure that the cacti in the guard station are watered.
- In the underground parking lot, Angel Starr gives Wright a farewell gift: her new lunch, the "Wright Way Lunch", with a bitter-tasting top half but sweet-tasting lower half. The "turnabout" theme has proven popular among students undergoing exams.
- In a courtroom, the judge claims to remember what Wright said after the trial, though it turns out that he has forgotten the lawyer's name and other details about him. In fact, he has forgotten to bring his gavel.
- Maya is still in training in Kurain Village. Though she misses Wright and his "objections", she is determined to soldier on with her training until she is a proper spirit medium. This is the only time that Kurain Village appears in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
- The bellboy brings Edgeworth his usual tea, but finds his office deserted, with only a letter left behind. This is an allusion to Edgeworth's disappearance, a plot point in Justice For All.
- Wright catches up with Ema at the train station, where she thanks him for all that he has done for her and Lana. Though she is sad that she and Lana were going to be separated, she will always have a reminder of her inside the book Scientific Investigation: a photo of the two sisters when they were younger.
The character scenes in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney end as photographs that fall onto a wooden desk, which provides the backdrop for the credit roll. The transition from credits to character scenes occurs via the wipe.
- At the Wright Anything Agency, Trucy Wright says that she is glad that Apollo Justice has decided to stay at the agency, adding that it's like she had found a long-lost brother, in an example of dramatic irony. Having inherited the rights to Magnifi Gramarye's magic, she intends to carry on her late grandfather's legacy.
- At Prosecutor Gavin's office, Klavier Gavin, realizing how much the last trial had "rocked," has decided to disband the Gavinners in order to focus on his legal career. Though this news has much heartbreak worldwide, Gavin feels that Justice and Trucy are the real stars now, and was looking forward to their next "jam session."
- In his hospital bed at the Hickfield Clinic, Phoenix Wright realizes that he has been a piano player longer than he has been a lawyer. Now that the case that had gotten him disbarred had finally been solved, he entertained the possibility of taking piano lessons, or perhaps retaking the bar exam to get his attorney's badge back.
- In the backstage hallway, Ema Skye considers making golden Snackoos before admitting that the preservatives required wouldn't be 100% safe.
- Olga Orly seems to have retained her job at the Borscht Bowl Club as both a waitress and as a dealer for Wright's poker games.
- The Kitakis have started a pastry business at their mansion selling muffins with kanji characters on them that read "root" and "people".
- Wocky Kitaki has made his own pastry to help out, namely muffins called "O.G. Crackers."
- At Eldoon's house, Guy Eldoon has devised a new noodle recipe containing just a large hunk of salt. He considers it the logical conclusion to the extreme saltiness for which his noodles are known.
- At People Park, Wesley Stickler, who has previously been mocked as "Wesley Stinkler" and "Wesley Stickyhands," has received a new nickname, "Wesley Sicko," While it was obviously meant negatively, Stickler is convinced that it is a reference to his curing the sickness of curiosity.
- At Sunshine Coliseum, Thalassa Gramarye thanks Wright for all that he has done, and looks to her newly found children as inspiration for her next song.
- At Solitary Cell 13, Spark Brushel has gone back on the beat. He still does not have his scoop, but his confidence is not shaken.
- In Drew Studio, Vera Misham says that she has taken up painting originals. She would have to look to the outside for inspiration, but she is not afraid anymore, having met good people from the outside.
