A damage animation is an animation displayed typically displayed by a protagonist, witness or rival when a flaw or contradiction in their testimony or argument is pointed out. Unlike breakdowns, damage animations are short and usually occur multiple times within a trial, often in rapid succession.

A list of damage animations in the Ace Attorney series follows.

RecurringEdit

  • Phoenix Wright — As a rookie attorney, his eyes briefly appear completely white as his mouth gapes in shock. As a veteran attorney, he jumps up with his mouth gaping in shock before coming back down, his eyes turning completely white.
  • Maya Fey — As a teenager, she brings her arms down in shock. As an adult, she brings her arms up and rears back in shock.
  • Miles Edgeworth — Brings his arms up and rears back in shock.
  • Pearl Fey — Brings her hand to her mouth with a shocked expression as her hair bounces up.
  • Franziska von Karma — Clutches herself and shakes in shock.
  • Apollo Justice — Rears back in shock while his horns fly up and then fall down.
  • Ema Skye — As an adult, she jumps in shock with her hand on her face.

  • Simon Blackquill — Reacts as though he were slashed by an invisible sword.
  • Winston Payne — Rears back in shock. In Turnabout Memories his pompadour flies up and separates. In Turnabout Trump, his hair stays in place for a second before falling.

  • Wesley Stickler— Brings his arm up in shock as his cape billows.
  • Alita Tiala — Bites down on her nails, then grabs her head with both hands and screams in shock as feathers fly off of the front of her dress. Her breakdown is a much longer version of her damage animation.
