A Steel Samurai balloon was a piece of evidence in Miles Edgeworth's investigation into the murder of Ethan Rooke.

Attempt on Huang's life[]

Main article: Turnabout Target

Prior to Di-Jun Huang's speech, one of the red balloons that were to be used to adorn the stage during the speech burst. As a result, Horace Knightley had to borrow it from a "poser" (presumed to be Larry Butz) nearby in order to replace the balloon. He then successfully replaced the balloon by inflating only the Steel Samurai's pants, causing them to appear as a red balloon. Later, Knightley shot it while faking an assassination attempt on Huang, which they had both agreed on beforehand.

Later on, Edgeworth found the balloon by the stage. He later handed the notes on it, along with the other evidence, to Knightley temporarily, as President Huang meant for the Zheng Fa police to take over the investigation. However, after Edgeworth negotiated with Huang to return the investigative authority to him, Knightley returned it along with the remaining evidence. He later used it to prove that the "red balloon" that Huang had heard burst was in fact the Steel Samurai balloon.
