Iris's hood was a piece of evidence in Phoenix Wright's investigation into the murder of Misty Fey. Belonging to Iris, a shrine maiden at Hazakura Temple, the hood is intended to ward against demons and evil spirits.

During Phoenix Wright's visit to Hazakura Temple in February 2019, Iris gave him the hood as a gift. That night, a series of events resulted in the murder of children's book author Elise Deauxnim at the temple. While attempting to cross nearby Dusky Bridge to save his assistant, Maya Fey, Wright fell from the bridge and was hospitalized as result. He wore the hood during his stay in the hospital in the hope that it would help his fever go down faster.
When Iris was subsequently put on trial for the murder, her temporary replacement defense attorney, Miles Edgeworth, used the hood to point out a contradiction in the testimony of Larry Butz; Butz claimed to have seen Iris flying over Dusky Bridge with her hood fluttering in the wind, but Edgeworth pointed out that this was impossible, since Iris had already given the hood to Wright.
