In "Trials and Tribulations" Larry mentions his failed love interests Katty Tom and Bennifer. Those are likely references of Hollywood supercouples Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, makes "Katty Tom". Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were "Bennifer".

Hasn't anyone else noticed Larrys appearances in Apollo Justice. During Turnabout Serenade he can be seen taking a picnic outside of of the Sunshine colliseum with one of his 'girlfriends' and once more as Laurice Duexnim, painting in the same location as last time, during Turnabout Succession.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) .

I did notice it, but I wasn't sure about it. True enough, there is a man wearing orange having a picnic with a woman outside the Sunshine Coliseum during Turnabout Serenade. And there is a figure wearing pink and painting outside the "7 years ago" version of the Coliseum in Turnabout Succession. But he's too far away to say it's definitely him. Maybe these possible appearances could be put on the page somehow, even if it's just in a "Notes" section.
On a similar note, there's an elderly woman attempting to jump the People Park fence at Kitaki Mansion. I don't remember what she yells at the policemen trying to restrain her but I think there may have been talk of "whippersnappers". Remind you of anyone? Strabo412 22:27, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

i believe larry asserts that the nun, bikini, is his actual mother in trials and tribulations. he quickly notes that he doesn't want to talk about it, and it's never brought up again. if you want to check this, present bikini to larry at some point during the case. sorry i can't remember exactly when, but i believe it's at your first or second opportunity actually (fairly sure it's at least before you have access to the shack at the base of the cliff).

Kiyance "made" Santa costume?[]

I do not believe the game ever explicitly stated that Kiyance made Larry's Father Christmas outfit. I think it was ambiguous and just stated that she gave him it. However, I could be wrong.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Larrys jobs[]

Larry has been an artist, a hot dog vendor, a steel samuria, and a security guard. Since being a student doesnt count, (cause than I'd be underpaid) and since he left being an artist to go back to his job, he has only had 4 jobs, not at least 5, right? sincerly Apollojustice4all (talk) 19:18, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

He states that he's working in a cheese shop in the epilogue of Turnabout Goodbyes. - Strabo412 (talk) 19:29, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
hahaha! So, shouldnt we put that on the page? (unless it is already) Apollojustice4all (talk) 23:27, June 22, 2014 (UTC)
Should it be counted that larry worked at a restaurant, since it happened in the manga? It's the first volume.Johnandsoon (talk) 23:23, October 1, 2016 (UTC)

Name Origins[]

This could sound very crazy! Do you think it's possible that Larry's name is short for Laurice?Franzyfan1998 (talk) 21:35, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

Ok. Scratch that idea for reasons later. I highly doubt Larry's full name is Laurice. The question is why did we get rid of his previous thought full name. Larry is a nickname for Lawrence. Now I looked it up Lawrence and found very little about it's meaning. All I found was that it meant "the one who wears a laurel wreath." laurel wreath is made form Laurels, duh, and laurels was used by the ancient Greeks to crown victors in the Pythian games. Could this be ironic considering Larry's luck?

Ok reason why I changed my mond about Laurice being the full name, you won't believe it. LAURICE IS A GIRL'S NAME! HAHAHAHAHHHAHHAHHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It's a girl's name! Hilarious. I'm still laughing!Franzyfan1998 (talk) 21:35, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

Considering Wright and Edgeworth correct him when he states his name is Laurice Deauxnim, I don't think so. It's more likely to be Larry just trying to sound fancy. - Strabo412 (talk) 09:55, June 25, 2014 (UTC
Laurice can apparently be a male name too. And if you stick a "s" on the end of it, well... As for why I removed "Lawrence" from the page, it was I felt it wasn't really adding anything and looked a bit out of place. Besides, Larry is a name in its own right, and so his name might not be short for anything. I would say it would only be worthwhile noting if the full name's meaning could be linking to Larry Butz in some way, but it can't really... - Strabo412 (talk) 20:55, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah well, all the baby websites i checked refered to it as female so, you know. Still hilarious, though.
Side note, Laurice, Lawerence, and Lauren all have the same meaning. Something to do with Laurels. Like I said it could be ironic. Laurel wreaths are used as a symbol of a master's degree, usualy given at a graduation ceremony of a university. Ironic since it's hinted he never even graduated high school. And while not relating to Larry, "to this day, the English Laurel's blossoms are used extensively in floral arrangements, from bridal bouquets to standard corsages." Again odd since he has not love life. (Maybe Lauren should have more Laurels than lollypops.)  Laurus Nobilis (bay laurels), in the Bible, is often an emblem of prosperity and fame. Again Ironic since Larry is generally considered a loser. And probably the least relevant, there are Laurels in both California and Japan, different species but same family.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Franzyfan1998 (talk).

About that second girlfriend...[]

Don't know about you guys, but Kiyance sounds a lot like Beyonce to me. It would make sense too, since Kiyance is apparently famous and such. Regards, Lvdoomien (talk) 02:25, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Even if it is, where on earth could you put that on this page? - Strabo412 (talk) 22:04, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure every girlfriend (at least in the localizations) is a reference to a celebrity or celebrity couple of some kind. capefeather (talk) 22:29, August 5, 2014 (UTC)


On Trials and Tribulations, case 2, when presenting Pearls' profile to Larry after breaking his Psyche-Lock, Phoenix says that Larry had a difficult time during his chilhood. Does somebody knows why did Phoenix said that? 23:48, November 2, 2014 (UTC)

"When something smells it's usually the Butz." Everyone tended to blame him for almost everything.Franzyfan1998 (talk) 23:56, November 2, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much, partner. Now I understand. -- 21:19, November 3, 2014 (UTC)

Larry skipped a grade[]

We know the event to which brought the trio of friends (Phoenix, Edgeworth, and Larry) together. Well if you don't here's a quick refresher. In spring Fourth grade, Phoenix was accused of stealing Edgeworth's lunch money, stood a class trial where everyone pretty much forced him into confessing, and then Edgeworth and Larry save him by defending him.

Note that it is spring of fourth grade, meaning it's close to the end of the year. So by the time DL-6 happens the trio are in 5th grade. And yet Edgeworth is still 9. Yeah Edgeworth is still 9 even though most 5th graders should be 10. And Edgeworth is about the age of my sister whose birthday is in December (she is one of the oldest kids in her class).

Now I remind you that in the localized version, it takes place in L.A. but in the original version, the class trial still happened in spring of 4th grade, but since that's in Japan, it's the start of fourth grade, not the end. So in the original version, DL-6 happened in December of the trio's fourth year of school, not the fifth. In other words, the trio is a grade older than the Japanese counterparts.

So what's that got to Larry? Yes Edgeworth did skip a grade but A) he has clearly proven that he handle the work (He became a prosecutor at age 20, he clearly skipped a few more grades after he moved to Germany) and B) Edgeworth was not the only one who skipped a grade in the localized version (I refuse to talk about Phoenix)

When looking at the court-record in the Phoenix Wright Trilogy, we see that Larry is younger than Edgeworth. (Larry is 25 during Bridge to the Turnabout and Edgeworth is 26). Yeah Larry also skipped a grade in the localized version. And his birthday is past March (Turnabout Ablaze) if the court-record is to be believed. So he spent the majority of 4th grade being 8.

As to the why Larry was able to do this, one can only guess but as the facts stand Larry skipped a grade! Franzyfan1998 (talk) 17:26, June 20, 2015 (UTC)

Turnabout Target reference?[]

In Turnabout Target, Horace Knightley replaces a red balloon with the Steel Samurai balloon. He explains that he obtained the balloon from a "poser" running a stand at the lake. Edgeworth notes that this sounds familiar, and indeed it sounds like he's referencing Larry. However, this is in the fan translated version, so I don't want to add it to the page. Does anyone know whether this same reference appears in the non translated (i.e. Japanese) text? If it does, I'm willing to add it to the page, but I don't want to add anything that wasn't in the original source text. YoshiyaKiryu (talk) 12:32, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

I seem to remember it being said in the dowolf translation as well, so it's probably alright? - Strabo412 (talk) 13:18, July 19, 2015 (UTC)
You could always use this template {{JReleased|u}} for clarity. - Strabo412 (talk) 13:21, July 19, 2015 (UTC)
Finally got around to editing the page. Thanks for the help! Feel free to edit if needs be. YoshiyaKiryu (talk) 13:33, September 1, 2015 (UTC)
