Taelende hidden on the cover of the Grand Grimoire.

Taelende (pronounced "tale-end-ah") is the name given to the final "spell" in Labyrinthia's Grand Grimoire. It is a trigger word that breaks all the townspeople out of their hypnosis and enables them to see "invisible" objects. Unlike the other "spells", Taelende is not listed within the Grand Grimoire itself, instead being hidden on the cover of the book.


Main article: The First Story

The only known time Taelende has been used was after Phoenix Wright and Hershel Layton solved the mystery of Labyrinthia and the Legendary Fire. After revealing that the "magic" seen in the town was actually the work of machinery rendered invisible to the townsfolk via a substance in the water, Wright and Layton used the "spell" to remove the mental suggestions given to them, thereby revealing the machinery and complex structures.


  • The spell's Japanese name is "Lostoria", which may be a play on "lost story".
  • "Taelende" is a play on "tale end", in reference to it being the spell that ends the Story.
  • The spell's French name is "Fabula Finis", meaning "tale" and "end" in Latin, respectively.
  • The spell's German name is "Nostoria", which might be a play on "no story".
  • The spell's Spanish name is "Finilusio", which is play on the Spanish words "fin" (end) and "ilusión" (illusion).
  • The spell's Italian name is "Elucidar", which may come from the Latin word "elucido", meaning "to reveal".
