"Pursuit" (追求) is a series of musical themes in the Ace Attorney series that normally play during a trial chapter's climax when the protagonist submits the final decisive evidence to end the trial. Each game has a track that usually plays prior to the submission of the evidence and a variation of the track that sometimes plays afterward, often after a sudden turnaround from a seemingly hopeless situation.

Before any official translations, the original track from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was commonly translated as "Pursuit ~ Cornered" or just "Cornered", and subsequent tracks would sometimes be mistakenly translated as "Cornered". The translated soundtrack of Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney uses "Cornered" for both of its "Pursuit" tracks. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy - Turnabout Tunes translated the track as "Pursuit - Cornering the Culprit", more clearly identifying the subject and object of the cornering. It similarly translated the track from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations as "Pursuit - Catching the Culprit" when "Pursuit ~ Caught" was a common unofficial translation.
