This article is about the speech bubble. You may be looking for the "Objection!" musical themes instead.
Miles Edgeworth
I object! That was... objectionable!
Objection! (SoJ)

The "Objection!" speech bubble has become an iconic element of the Ace Attorney series, usually accompanied by the equally iconic dramatic finger-pointing gesture. In real life, an objection is generally raised prior to pointing out that someone in court is breaking a rule of trial proceedings. In the Ace Attorney series, however, it is used much more liberally. Characters often yell "Objection!" when they are about to point out a flaw in an opponent's argument or a witness's testimony, often using evidence from the court record or an organizer. Each game thus far has ended with the protagonist yelling "Objection!" before the credits roll.

In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations, near the end of Bridge to the Turnabout, when Phoenix Wright is about to show where the killer hid his wound, an image of Mia Fey appears beside him, and they simultaneously perform the pointing animation. This animation includes mouth movement, but no voice clip is actually played. In all versions of the game, there is a sound effect with an added echoed "Objection!" voice clip. However, despite being updated in each subsequent remake, even gaining an English version, it is never used.
