"Pursuit - Corner the Culprit" is a music track in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It is used throughout the game when pointing out contradictions in later sections of trial chapters, typically during the climax when submitting the final decisive evidence to end the trial, with "Phoenix Wright - Objection! 2001" being used earlier on. It is part of the recurring "Pursuit" tracks used throughout the Ace Attorney series, and can be considered as one of Phoenix Wright's themes.
Like other "Pursuit" tracks, it has a variation version called "Pursuit - Corner the Culprit (Variation)" that sometimes plays after the initial submission of decisive evidence, often after a sudden turnaround from a seemingly hopeless situation.
The track returns briefly during a flashback scene in Reunion, and Turnabout from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All, when Maya Fey is explaining who Miles Edgeworth is to her cousin Pearl. It also makes a reappearance in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney during the "Seven Years Earlier" section of Turnabout Succession.
