A prosecutor's badge is a lapel pin used as identification for prosecutors. It depicts a blazing sun looming over winter frost, which is allegedly designed to portray the severity of the punishment system. The design dates back to the beginnings of Japan's modern justice system, when it was worn on armbands.

Every prosecutor carries a badge, though many don't wear it openly in the way defense attorneys do. Among those who do wear their badges are Chief Prosecutor Blaise Debeste and his son Eustace, as well as the prosecutor in charge of the first UR-1 Incident trial. Manfred von Karma believed in keeping his badge in his pocket at all times and taught Miles Edgeworth, and most other district prosecutors, to do the same.

British Prosecutor's badge

British prosecutor's badge.

In Great Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries, prosecutor badges were white, four-pointed badges outlined in gold. They have a red gem in the middle of a black and gold rhombus, surrounded by arrows.


Prosecutors were originally not conceived as having badges, despite the badges existing in real life and the attorney's badge being based on the one used in real-life Japan.[1]
