Joint Reasoning Elementary

Deduction Complete

Joint Reasoning is a gameplay element found in investigation chapters of Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken and Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Kakugo, in which Sherlock Holmes and Ryūnosuke Naruhodō or Yūjin Mikotoba (in The Resolve of Naruhodō Ryūnosuke) both use abductive reasoning to come to a conclusion based on logical observations made of their environment and other characters. The process involves Holmes at first making makes logical inferences to come to a conclusion. However, these are most of time incorrect due to being drawn from logical yet incorrect abduction. Afterwards, it is up to Naruhodō/Mikotoba to steer Holmes towards the actual truth, by putting his line of logic on the right track.

Trivia Edit

  • Some of the abductive reasonings and conclusions drawn by Holmes are directly taken from Sherlock Holmes canon, but are made to be incorrect in the context of the episode's narrative. Sometimes this is even used to make fun of the original canon stories.
    • One key example of this is in The Adventure of the Unbreakable Speckled Band, where Holmes's conclusion as to what caused Kazuma Asōgi's death, which the episode directly mocks as illogical, is the actual truth behind the victim's death in the canon The Adventure of the Speckled Band.
